Samsung Electronics chairman Lee Kun-hee has dropped off Bloomberg's list of the world's richest 100 billionaires, as the firm's stock price fell about 15 percent.
Lee came 107th in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index with a net worth of US$10.2 billion, down $1.2 billion from late last year.
Lee made the list for the first time last year and ranked among the top 80 or 90 until the first half of this year. Samsung Electronics stock account for about half his assets.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates topped the list again with $72.4 billion in net assets.
