Panasonic Survivor: Sanyo OEM digital camera business will go independent
A few months ago, Panasonic nom-nom'ed Sanyo (you probably won't hear this "business term" on CNBC or WSJ), but it turns out, there have been some problems with the digestion. More specifically, problems threatening the Sanyo OEM (original equipment manufacturer) business. Since Sanyo also makes cameras for other manufacturers (not named Panasonic or Sanyo), "The Others" did not feel very comfortable depending on one of their bigger rivals (Panasonic Borg) to make their outsourced cameras. So, in order to save the Sanyo OEM business, Panasonic will be spinning off Sanyo Digital Imaging!
