    Just imagine Temasek bought over Nikon, then got all the NTUC Fairprice supermarket to sell Nikon cameras and lenses

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Nikon Corporation (株式会社ニコン Kabushiki-gaisha Nikon?) (TYO: 7731 ), also known as Nikon or Nikon Corp., is a Japanese company specializing in optics and imaging. Its products include cameras, binoculars, microscopes, measurement instruments, and the steppers used in the photolithography steps of semiconductor fabrication. It was founded in 1917 as Nihon (Nippon); the company was renamed Nikon Corporation after its cameras, in 1988. As of 2002, it has about 14,000 employees. Nikon is one of the Mitsubishi companies.

    Nikon I believe is owned by Mitsubushi one of the biggest company in the world. Why Sell? Maybe for fun.

    But no guarantee that new methods of doing business is the best anyway.

    Like a heat seeking missle(old technology) could bring down a stealth fighter

    In fact Nikon was ranked 52 ahead of Canon! Nikon's crown jewel is in its stepper machines. These machines have the capability of motion control up to nanometers, and its applications are found in LCD and semiconductor manufacturing. And this is some very impressive engineering!

    But consider this fact, Canon's net profit was $3.4 billion last year, while Nikon's was $258 million, and Canon is the 2nd largest Japanese IT-related company in the similar portfolio, digital camera manufacturing is its forte, haha.

    Of all these profits, is it really the true value of it?

    IMHO, any Big ahem...Corporation will never let anyone know their REAL profit ...

    Hee... the list is listed based on:

    The remaining group of companies was ranked on four criteria: return on equity, shareholder return and revenue growth (which were given equal weight), and total revenues (which was weighted).

    Although total revenue is still counted as a list criteria, more weightage is given to creating VALUE for its shareholders. Its not size but how innovative the company is at creating value.

    Just a side note.

    Mitsubishi is a loose group of companies with 300 over independant companies.

    Nikon is just one of them.

    But Nikon is unlikely to be sold anytime soon.

    They are a small player in the consumer market, but big in industrial applications.

    Nikon will never sell to the West as most Japan coy have lots of pride.
