    Default Sony Invests $642 Million In Olympus, Becomes Largest Shareholder

    Sony Invests $642 Million In Olympus, Becomes Largest Shareholder | TechCrunch

    "Sony is expected to approve a plan to invest around $642 million (50 billion yen) in Olympus. As the Japanese manufacturer of cameras, optics and reprography products is currently facing a trial for having hidden investment losses for the past 20 years, it has been looking for a potential investor for months. By injecting that capital investment, Sony will become the largest shareholder."

    It's mainly for the Olympus medical devices division, which is still profitable. As it is, Olympus is already starting to use Sony sensors.

    Still Sony because the brand name has value.

    Olympus may become a sub-division of Sony if there is a take over. However, Olympus brand name in medical optics is solid. So presuming after take over, they may close the camera division of Olympus and concentrate on its core strength - medical imaging.

    We seen Aiwa.....Ericsson.....Konica......I got bad feeling about this one too......Sony should go back to their their own root....to invent something new and be the leader....rather than be a follower

    Sony already had audio systems before buying Aiwa. they had mobile phones before they partnered Ericsson. and they had cameras (although not the system camera) before they bought over Minolta..... so what is it you're talking about?
