I don't care how much the copier division makes as far as profitability goes when that division is probably a small percentage of the overall company. My guess is it will go up for sale at some point. My bet would be to Samsung. I also don't see how that division is profitable based on what I see down the street. I kind of believe it about as much as I believed Ricoh in the dealer meeting a few years ago saying "regardless of the rumors your hear, the direct operations are profitable." From...

One thing few in the Imaging Channel want to discuss is the innovative processes which will replace much of the old way’s deliverable. The glory days of selling print equipment and its services are just beginning for some innovative thinkers and ending for some others. All things do in-fact change. Even those who refuse, eventually are forced to change. No one can circumvent progress regardless of their marketing strategies or their hopes that current circumstances remain a little longer.
