South Korea’s LG Electronics Inc (066570.KS) said on Tuesday its fourth-quarter operating profit rose 27 percent from a year earlier – a result that was slightly above expectations as earnings for its television business rebounded.

LG, the world’s No.2 television maker behind domestic rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS), said October-December profit was 349 billion won ($290 million), above a Thomson Reuters StarMine SmartEstimate of 340 billion won derived from a survey of 25 analysts.
