SEOUL, April 12 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's leading steelmaker POSCO estimated Monday its operating profit more than doubled in the first quarter from a year earlier amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company did not provide details on what drove up the operating profit.

Sales rose 9.9 percent to 15.99 trillion won in the first quarter from 14.55 trillion won a year ago, it said.

The company plans to release its final quarterly results later this month.
