Re: exit to Sony?
In reply to MichaelKJ, Nov 10, 2013

As I see it Olympus's digital imaging business is already far too small to continue as an independent entity. I wouldnt be surprised if once Oly finish rationalizing or closing its compact business, the mirrorless arm is absorbed by Sony.

There are several synergies for Sony. IS, processing and lens expertise to add to their business. Absorbing Oly's mirrorless will capture and ensure the continuation of Sony sensors sales. And most importantly there are US$500m a year of SG&A costs that can be rationalized when the business is absorbed into Sony's infrastructure.
