"Improper accounting charges" for Fujifilm hits $341,000.000 USD.

Looks like heads are going to roll at Fujifilm. $341,000,000 in accounting irregularities instead of the $200,000,000 USD reported in April. Seem related to the Fuji Xerox venture.

Here is a link to one article about this. No idea what effect this will have on their photographic business. This is will effect the last six years worth of net profits by the aforementioned $341 million.

Indeed!

But I'd think there needs to be one "O" per digit -- this is more like "OOO,OOO,OOOPS!"

yeah, a few years ago instead of getting a mere few lenses like those of us with GAS do now, you could've bought the whole of Pentax

Who knew? Apparently the Fuji accountants used to work on the ISO rating team.

But you can! Just fire up Excel, put 'My Total Cash' at the top, and put whatever figure you like underneath. The money is imaginary, so you'll struggle to spend it, but your friends will be impressed when you show it to them.

Effectively, exactly the same thing...

Using photoptimist's spelling, that should be "Fujifilm is DOOO,OOO,OOOmed!"

That's the shortest, easiest-to-understand and most-accurate guide to corporate accounting I've ever read. Bravo!

Looks like their ISO isn't the only thing they don't report accurately...
