Sony and Fujifilm Preparing to Bail Out Disaster-Struck Olympus

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony, Fuji and several other companies have made offers to team up with battered camera maker Olympus, with the Japanese giant said to be considering offers of partnership deals with its local rivals.

It's not made particularly clear what is meant by "partnership" though. Business news portal Bloomberg terms the potential deals as being "capital alliance offers" from Fuji, Sony, medical imaging specialist Terumo and other unnamed companies, which sounds like some sort of complex merger of parts of its business may be on the cards to save the troubled camera maker.
