Statement 1 - Sufficient.
Net profit group => 12+9=21
Foreign markets => 12+3=15
Neither foreign markets nor net profit =6

Statement 2 - Sufficient.
Provides information about the union of all the groups, except the one that did not have net profit nor had foreign investments.
30-24 = 6

My answer is D.
