Nov 13 Panasonic Corp unit Sanyo
Electric Co is in talks to sell its digital camera business to
an investment fund as early as this year, the Nikkei business
Sanyo, which has no camera brand of its own, supplies
products on an original equipment manufacturing basis to several
companies including Olympus Corp. Digital camera
production reached about 11 million units in the year ended
March 2011, the daily said.
Sanyo has sought potential buyers among domestic and
overseas manufacturers, the Nikkei said. Negotiations proved
difficult because the company's operations focus on the
shrinking compact digital cameras market, the daily said.
