South Korean authorities nabbed Samsung Group boss Jay Lee over his purported participation in the nation's corruption controversy, which resulted in the indictment of President Park Geun-hye and other high-ranking officials.

O Friday, Lee was taken at the imprisonment site in Seoul following he waited for the court's verdict overnight. A jail official divulged the Samsung chief is currently placed in a small area with a television and a table.

Special prosecutors alleged Lee paid a kickback to Choi Soon-sil, Park's longtime confidante, to secure an approval in connection to the company's leadership. Authorities will arraign him on several lawsuits such as perjury and embezzlement.

Both Lee and Samsung already refuted accusations against them. Prosecutors, who intends to subject him to a questioning over the weekend, have up to 10 days to prosecute him.

Morale among Japanese manufacturers worsened for a third consecutive month in April to a level unseen since early last year, the Reuters Tankan poll showed, as rises in the yen and crude oil prices threaten to support corporate profits.

The monthly poll, which tracks the Bank of Japan's (BOJ) closely watched tankan quarterly survey, found manufacturers' confidence was expected to improve a little over the next three months, although fears of a global trade war dim the outlook.

Trade tensions could hit Japan's export-reliant economy hard which could lead to financial market turmoil that would cause an unwelcome spike in the safe-haven yen.

In the Reuters poll of 542 large- and mid-sized companies, in which 253 firms responded on condition of anonymity, many complained about a profit squeeze caused by the strong yen and rising raw materials costs.

The Reuters Tankan sentiment index for manufacturers was at 21, down seven points from the previous month, weighed down by industries such as oil refiners, makers of chemicals, and exporters of cars and electric machinery.

The survey conducted over April 4-17 found the index was expected to improve to 23 in July.

The service-sector index increased to 36, up one point from March and matching a record high last seen in June 2015, led by retailers, suggesting a pick-up in private consumption that makes up about 60 percent of the economy.

The index is expected to fall slightly to 35 in July.

U.S. homebuilding grew in March amid a rebound in the construction of multi-family housing units. Separate data showed a strong rise in industrial production in the same month as cold weather raised utilities output and production at mines soared.

The reports highlight the economy's underlying strength even though growth in the first quarter is expected to have slowed after three consecutive quarters of brisk expansion.

According to data from the Commerce Department, housing starts increased 1.9 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.319 million units. Data for February was revised up to show a 1.295 million-unit pace instead of the previously reported 1.236 million units. Permits for future homebuilding rose 2.5 percent to a rate of 1.354 million units in March.

Demand for housing is being driven by a robust labor market, which is supporting the economy. Single-family home construction fell in the Northeast, South and West, but rose in the Midwest.

In a separate report, the Federal Reserve said industrial production grew 0.5 percent in March after jumping 1.0 percent in February.

It was boosted by a 3.0 percent surge in utilities production and a 1.0 percent increase in output at mines. Manufacturing production, however, rose only 0.1 percent after soaring 1.5 percent in February.

U.S. financial markets were little moved by the data. The dollar climbed against a basket of currencies, while U.S. Treasury prices fell marginally.

International Business Machines Corp. reported profit margins that clocked in below Wall Street estimates, causing its shares to slide 6 percent in extended trading.

The decline in its share price came despite breaking an almost six-year streak of revenue growth declines in the second quarter.

In recent years, the technology company shifted its focus to higher-margin businesses including cloud computing, cybersecurity, and data analytics, to offset a slowdown in its legacy hardware and software businesses, but the move is not progressing as fast as some shareholders had expected.

While the company's revenue and profit topped estimates, the firm's adjusted gross profit margin declined 43.7 percent from 44.5 percent a year prior.

The firm said the fall in gross margin was mostly because of “significant” one-time charges.

During an earnings call with analysts, IBM CFO James Kavanaugh said the firm reduced costs and took a $610 million charge during the first quarter, but did not disclose details.

The firm said it had a tax benefit of $810 million due to changes in the U.S. tax law.

IBM retained its expectation for full-year adjusted earnings per share of at least $13.80, while analysts were projecting more, with the consensus at $13.83. The company's revenue increased 5 percent to $19.07 billion in the quarter with 65 percent increase in sales from security services. Cloud revenue increased 25 percent.

Net profit declined to $1.68 billion or $1.81 per share, in the first quarter ended March 31, from $1.75 billion or $1.85 per share a year prior. Earnings per share excluding items clocked in at $2.45 per share, surpassing the average estimate of $2.42.
