Re: Sharp bond risk jumps as losses over 4½ years top $10 billion

Art Post ·
WOW! Some take ways from the article above: Sharp does not have core business that it can look to in the future 510 billion syndicated loan payment due March of 2016. That's almost 4.2 billion US dollars! Ouch! "The chances of banks calling the 103-year-old company’s loans are therefore low", seems to me like there are more cuts to come, more business units to sell. Banks accepted shares in the company earlier this year after it defaulted on debt payments

Sharp is much more desperate than Canon. Whatever the deal, I'm sure it was beyond anything a financially secure company like Canon would consider.

My wife would shoot me if I ever brought home a talking vacuum, I think I can remember that Sharp either had a talking copier or was planning to introduce one years ago, that went no where and the last thing I want is some plastic & tin headed device talking to me.

Re: Sharp Becomes First MFP Provider Working With Alexa for Business to Enhance Technology in the Workplace

ok, it's got some sizzle, but where is the beef? Practically no one copies anymore, thus the only use I can see is for scanning. I have five Alexa's at home, great for playing music and asking questions. I guess I could ask Alexa "scan documents to Rob", and with out noticing Alexa sends those documents to "Bob". I just don't see the applications, can someone enlighten me, maybe someone who was at the recent Sharp event?

No money means no R&D. Sharp is getting destroyed in Canada. Since Konica Minolta purchased Pitney Bowes' imaging division (Sharp's largest dealer in Canada), they've been offering customers massive incentives to flip their Sharp gear into KM bizhubs. I think there's more value in Sharp's direct channel base customer list than the actual technology. I've always found the MX series to be lacking in quality and ease of use. Prices have come down on Tier 1 products which means Tier 2...

I truly think it's only a matter of time before they go under or are aquired. I believe Samsung will continue to make a push to purchase them but every time they have tried, the Japanese govt steps in and stops it.

Re: Sharp "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"

Art, I'm in Japan this week meeting with key clients and have asked this question to several. In typical fashion, no one wants to speculate on what will happen. Is this a good or bad sign? Is Sharp changing a good sign? If it doesn't is this bad, or does it mean it is continuing its commitment to our industry? Since the year 2000, 50% of Fortune 500 companies have fallen from its ranks--no longer considered leaders (by at least that standard). This is most often due leadership...

I was able to read this on my ipad. Interesting point that rarely does a Japanese company go bankrupt. Another interesting point is that the banks will gain additional share in Sharp. The last point, in all of the recent articles, there is no mention to the imaging division.

The flat rate plan is not going to be just for copiers/MFPs. It's going to essentially be a "smart office" bundle offered at a flat monthly rate. The bundle will include a Sharp MFP, an interactive display, a server, and Sharp's new Synappx software. Details/pricing are not yet confirmed. Lisa

Some of you with hands-on experience with these models may have additional insights, but here is what I have: That MX-M654N’s competitive positioning is mixed, with strengths in the areas energy consumption, scan speed, connectivity, footprint, and UI size and design, and disadvantages in the areas of maximum speed, paper handling, finishing, and mobile print support.
