[QUOTE=~Tild;2548402]TY has been making a lot of really poor business decisions for the last couple of years. I can’t say this possibility surprises me.
Long term, someone else with some vision needs to take over the Taiyo Yuden optical media division. The current leaders are running it into the ground.[/QUOTE]
It just means that they don’t really care about the optical media business anymore( as the lack of R&D also shows).
I doubt any change in leadership would result in much difference, especially when economic realities are the driving force. Virtually all other Japanese manufacturers have pulled out of the market, which kinda says something.
