TOKYO -- SoftBank Group's $100 billion technology fund has sold its entire stake in U.S. chipmaker Nvidia, the company said Wednesday, as it announced its latest earnings which reflected the group's resilience but also the many risks it faces.

In the nine months through December, the group saw roughly 50% growth in net profit to 1.54 trillion yen ($13.9 billion), which overtook Toyota Motor's profit of 1.42 trillion yen for the first time.
