they sold 177,000 that quarter, against 183,000 the YoY past. -3.3%
Operating profit = gross profit – operating expenses. So higher operating profit can come from higher revenues or lower expenses (e.g. layoffs, factory closings, 'restructuring', etc.).
yes. my poiont was that even with no excuses (delayed sensors,etc) the same quarter, that canon posted a +6% growth, olympus posted a -3.3% loss in units.
we'll never know what Sony reports because sony never does.
I find it curious that canon took unit sales away from Olympus.
what were the respective ASPs and SPU?
