Nikon is part of the M core group of 28 companies, called the Kinyokai (Friday Club) that meet every month to discuss strategy etc. I think Bob's point is that in Japan things are not like in other countries, each for itself. Check Olympus. Likel;y in the US it'd be closed by now, or just bought by another company and then closed. In Japan they went great lengths no to let that happen (Sony is now giving cards there I think).

I understand that they are part of a group. I just doubt that the group would bail out Nikon. Someone may buy Nikon just as someone bought Pentax and someone bought Minolta. In one case the name survived, in the other the name did not survive. But I think the idea that this group would throw money at Nikon to keep them afloat is wishful thinking.
