LG’s planned Guangzhou display-panel factory will be 30% owned by joint-venture partner Guangzhou-Kaide Technologies Development Co., sources close to the matter told Caixin.

The South Korean home-appliances giant announced Tuesday that it will build a facility to produce large-panel organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays in Guangzhou’s Economic and Technological Development Zone. LG’s official announcement said it was providing 70% of a 15.7 billion yuan ($2.33 billion) investment in the factory, but did not specify who will provide the remaining amount.
