So let me sum it up: After telling is for a year that they wouldn’t sell the imaging business they did exactly that. And now in a new interview released at Dpreview they literally say this:
The sale of the Imaging Division does not mean that we will withdraw from the imaging business
What??? So they sell the imaging business but they will not withdraw from it? As pointed out on 43rumors the only way this phrase makes sense is if Olympus will still retain a MAJOR stake in the new company led by JIP. Well let’s hope this is the case!
