Newest qoute from Pentax HQ

Just got this from Forbes from today!

he company aims to increase the operating profit of its imaging system division, which covers digital cameras, to 5.2 bln yen in the year to March 2010 from 3.1 bln yen in the last fiscal year. To do so, it will build up its sales network in China, explore opportunities to enter the Russian and East European markets and boost annual sales of its single lens reflex (SLR) digital cameras to 1.0 mln cameras per year. In the last fiscal year, it sold 300,000 SLR digital cameras.

Our favorite "Snydley K. Whiplash" (evil villian for those not familiar w/ old american cartoons) has spoken...............
``There's no evidence that this plan can be achieved,'' Shoichi Miyasaka, president and chief executive of Sparx Capital Partners Co., a unit of Pentax's largest shareholder, said today in an interview in Tokyo. ``We saw no reason for them to reject a merger with Hoya. They haven't addressed how they expect to stably expand five to 10 years from now.''

Todays blurb

"Pentax is restricted from making any negotiations for partnership or venture agreement with other companies besides HOYA until May 31, 2007. Thus, Pentax describes the mid-term plan as "a strategy under restrictions which can be carried out by Pentax alone." Although some news reported that Pentax is "planning to sell the headquarters," the company denied the speculation, commenting "there is no such plan at the moment."
