Thread: Nikon overload!

  1. #1

    Default Nikon overload!

    Has anyone seen the Nikon ad blitz on the Straits Times today? 8 full colour, full page ads made the paper look like a Nikon catalog! What's up? Preparing for a new product launch?

    This is one of the most berserk things happening in the govt and now I hear the pte sector too. Can you imagine if you work hard and bring down the costs, improve productivity, and therefore expenditure drops, then the boss comes telling that you a BAD job by not spending the allocated budget.

    It depends...for small S&E we can understand because every dollar and cents will hit the owner and employee pocket directly

    But for a listed company like us, like it or not...a faction of the profit will be taxed, a portion will be distributed to shareholder and some will retain as working capital.....it doesn't matter if we spend $100k more or $100k less since the whole expenditure and profitable planning has been approved last year......once approved......it is the marketing dept responsibility to meet the target and our duty is to spend If the goal met then everyone will get the promised bonus and all walk home happy

    Anyone know's how much that would have cost Nikon? 8x$30k=$240k!!!

    I don't know, but all this money could have been used to reward us faithful Nikon supporters. They could have thrown a party for us and we would have been very grateful and support them even more. Or they can say, offer all Nikon lens owners free lens cleaning, free CCD cleaning, free servicing, etc, for a limited time, etc.
