SEOUL, April 28 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Engineering Co., a construction affiliate of Samsung Group, said Tuesday that its net profit fell 33.2 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier due to a lower base effect.

The company posted a net profit of 69.4 billion won (US$56.7 million) in the January-March period, compared with a net profit of 104 billion won a year earlier, the plant builder said in a regulatory filing.

Samsung Engineering said the net profit decline in the first quarter is due to a base effect in which one-off gains from overseas projects boosted the bottom line a year ago.
