It stated that after the tense relation between China and South Korea improved, Hyundai Motors and AmorePacific made positive contributions of 17% and 9% respectively. The decrease in tension between China and South Korea bodes well for both the companies and could have a positive impact on their earnings for the coming couple of years. Hyundai faced a dip in its vehicle demand in China. On the other hand, AmorePacific witnessed less tourists visiting from mainland China.
Other positive news came from Frontier Digital Ventures, up 12%. It recorded a positive cash receipt for the first quarter. 9 out of 14 of its investments generate a revenue worth more than A$1million.
