Company Background

As the holding company of SK group, South Korea's third-largest conglomerate, SK Holdings owns significant stakes in petrochemical producer SK Innovation, mobile carrier SK Telecom and contractor SK Engineering & Construction. The holding company also has its own information technology services.

Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry, better known as Foxconn Technology Group, owns 3.5% of SK Holdings.

In August 2015, IT company SK C&C, the group's de facto holding company, merged with an intermediate holding company to simplify the ownership structure. Group Chairman Chey Tae-won has a 23% stake in the new entity, SK Holdings.

In addition to IT services, such as the system integration and outsourcing provided by SK C&C, the company is aggressively pursuing new services such as cloud computing, the "Internet of Things" and big data. It also sells used cars and cellphones.

Through a capital and business alliance with Foxconn, SK Holdings provides IT services to help streamline production at Foxconn plants. The group sees the relationship as its ticket into the Chinese market.

In May 2015, Foxconn and SK C&C formed a joint venture, FSK Holdings, in Hong Kong. In October, Foxconn and SK jointly acquired Hong Kong-listed Daiwa Associate Holdings, a maker of smart sensors.
