Re: Olympus Corp in real trouble

I don't think Japanese should like to sold to non-Japanese firm.

The only possible firm could have been Ricoh if they have not purchased Pentax.

As word of this spreads to consumers, the predicted failure of the company may well become a self-fulfilling prophesy. The impact on sales will tell the tale in short order. Beyond that, product development is bound to be constrained.

If Samsung does not acquire Olympus I do not know who else would be interested. Panasonic does not really need Olympus. This could be the end of the road for Olympus.

The following article only discusses the investigation of Olympus Corp by the Japanese securities regulators. It does not discuss the fact that Olympus shares have dropped by more than 70% in the last two weeks, and all bets are that Olympus will have to be sold either as a complete corporation, or by being broken up and the individual business units being sold off.
