It’s the end of an era: Japan’s Olympus said Wednesday it is selling its struggling camera division to focus on medical equipment — now the major portion of the storied firm’s business.Olympus has been in the camera business since 1936, when it launched a product using the “Zuiko” lens, but it has struggled along with industry rivals as demand for traditional cameras declines, with consumers relying on increasingly sophisticated smartphone cameras.The company said it has signed a memo of understanding to transfer its camera business to investment fund Japan Industrial Partners, with the goal of sealing a final deal by the end of September. Olympus has, however, seen success in the medical equipment field, controlling a whopping 70 percent share of the global endoscope market.The firm’s decision comes as many of its domestic, traditional rivals including Fujifilm and Canon also aggressively expand in the medical equipment sector, under pressure from the same decline in camera sales. Topics : The value of the sale was not specified.The firm has produced a number of famous products, including the half-size camera Olympus Pen, the world’s first micro-cassette tape recorder Zuiko Pearlcorder, and the Olympus OM-D series, a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.The company said it had tried to cut costs and develop profitable, high-end lenses to survive in an increasingly difficult digital camera market.”Despite all such efforts, Olympus’s Imaging business recorded operating losses for three consecutive fiscal years up to the term ended in March 2020,” the company said.
Serge Gnabry bagged a brace on Wednesday night as Bayern Munich advanced to the final of the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday night with a 3-0 victory over Lyon.The Germans were under the cosh for the first 15 minutes of the encounter at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon. Lyon skipper Memphis Depay had the first chance four minutes into the one-off semi-final.After eluding the Bayern centre-backs, the Netherlands international scooted into the penalty area, rounded the Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer but scuffed his shot the wrong side of the right hand post.The same stick came to Neuer’s rescue 13 minutes later after Karl Toko Ekambi was released down the right.Alphonso Davies blocked his initial shot but the 27-year-old Cameroon international took the rebound, cut inside but his shot struck the upright.That was as good as it got for Rudi Garcia’s men. A minute later they were 1-0 down.Serge Gnabry picked up Joshua Kimmich’s chipped pass on the right of the Lyon penalty area.The striker veered left along the edge of the box past two defenders before unleashing a left foot shot that flashed high over Anthony Lopes into the top left hand corner of the Lyon goalGnabry’s second came on the cusp of half-time.Ivan Perisic wriggled free down the left and squared for Robert Lewandowski. The normally lethal Poland international managed to botch his tap-in but it rebounded against Lopes into Gnabry’s path.He slotted in gleefully.Lyon had the chance to regain a foothold in the match 15 minutes after the pause but Ekambi failed to steer the ball past Neuer after being sent clear by Houssem Aouar.The Germans suffered few scares afterwards and Lewandowski added the third in the 87th minute to seal the victory and set up a mouthwatering final against Paris Saint-Germain on August 23 at the Estadio da Luz.RelatedPosts Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says “I am very proud of the team,” said Lyon sporting director Juninho after the match. “We played against a great team.

Kolkata: City-based United Bank of India (UBI), which reported losses for the last seven quarters, is expecting to come out of the prompt and corrective action (PCA) list of RBI in the second quarter of the current financial year, a top official of the bank said. “We should be coming out of PCA by the second quarter of 2019-20. Things are happening the way we have strategised,” Ashok Kr Pradhan, MD and CEO of UBI told PTI. Pradhan said that the bank is not growing due to lack of capital. “However, the government has given us capital support. Last year the bank got Rs 5000 crore which will help us to meet the regulatory requirements”, Pradhan said.

Earlier, the asset book was tilted towards risky assets. Now we are going for AA and AAA rated accounts”. He said that UBI had received around Rs 4500 crore through NPA resolution during the last year. “Our GNPA should be in the range of 15 per cent to 16 per cent by March 2019, down from 21.27 per cent earlier”. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway Pradhan said “this last quarter we expect to be in profits and continue for the rest of the period quarter-on-quarter”. RBI had imposed PCA on the bank in December 2017 which had led to restrictions on lending, non-opening of new branches and non-recruitment of staff as the cost-to-income of the bank was adverse. The advance book of the bank increased Rs 4000 crore during the last financial year with advances presently touching Rs 73,000 crore. Pradhan said “The target this year for advances should touch Rs 80,000 crore and deposits at Rs 1,35,000 crore”. He said that capital would be required for growth of the bank. “We will raise capital from the market, maybe in the third quarter. “We will also raise Rs 100 crore from the employees through Employees Stock Purchase Scheme”, he said. Since the bank is located in the east, its growth had been constrained due to lack of growth in this part of the country for which it wants to have an ambitious target. In the current fiscal, the retail sector is expected to grow by 20 per cent, MSMEs by 22 per cent to 24 per cent and agriculture eight to ten per cent, he said. “We will be very selective on the corporates and to take exposure in AA and AAA rated accounts”, Pradhan added.
