Lay Off Possibilities: Sharp To Cut Around 5,000 Employees

With the current world economy looking not as favorable as it should be, the Japanese company Sharp Corporation is said to be having thoughts on laying off 5,000 of its employees cumulatively.  Since Sharp has different manufacturing plants and offices worldwide, this number represents only the total number of the possible jobs to be lost and not the distribution of the losses.

Currently, Sharp has over fifty thousand people employed – making the layoff plans a reduction of about ten percent of the total workforce of Sharp.  The possible cut is projected to alleviate the company’s reducing revenue, attributed to the decrease in the demand for Sharp’s products.  Sharp’s TVs alone experienced a significant blow in the market, leaving the company with tons of LCD panels in its factories – without any prospects of being liquidated any time soon.

Aside from the seemingly poor performance of Sharp products in the market, it also faces a cartel case in the US, adding up to the losses.  The $198 million settlement creates further damage to Sharp, considering that this could have already been part of its revenue for the second quarter of the year.

Rumors regarding a Taiwanese company’s interest on the ownership of Sharp’s LCD factory in Sakai, Osaka have also started to surface.  These speculations instigate the worries of many that the Sakai employees are the first to be laid off, but these rumors have no solid proof as of the moment.  In addition, even if the ownership of the factory is transferred to another company, it is possible that the employees would not be directly dismissed, considering that it would still need to have workers at the factory – and keeping Sharp’s current employees would be more convenient for the prospective new owner.

However, in a different perspective, Sharp’s subsidiary in Indonesia is looking more positive than the rest of the company’s constituents.  A representative from PT Sharp Electronics mentions that they will not be affected by this manpower reduction, and will in fact have about a thousand new jobs in the company by 2014.  This is a relief for many, especially that the company has almost 4,000 employees in Indonesia at the moment.

In essence, the move will be implemented by letting go of some individuals in plants that are no longer fully functional and by imposing early retirement: reducing its manpower significantly.  Voluntary early retirement is also a more favorable option for the company.

Nokia Shares Experience a Very Favorable Markup

Rumors about Lenovo acquiring Nokia seem to have caught the attention of many, a proof easily seen when the price of Nokia shares shoot up at up to 17%.  This markup is a very favorable improvement on Nokia’s performance in the market, considering that it has been going through tough times for the past few years.

Talks about Nokia incorporating Intel technology into their smartphones are also becoming common.  Other than that, the most striking news that the tech world has recently been focusing on is the one about Lenovo taking over Nokia.  Gianfranco Lanci, a senior executive of Lenovo, laughed off the rumors about the possible acquisition.  He stated that if Lenovo was to acquire a company, it would be more likely to be a company that is in the same line of business:  computer manufacturing and marketing.

The source of the speculations regarding Lenovo’s acquisition of the Finnish company was not identified, but the fact that it made a significant effect on the price of Nokia shares gave people an idea that it might probably be the best option that the struggling company has.

Currently, Nokia is the top producer of smartphones that are equipped with Microsoft technology, giving people the impression that Microsoft would soon be taking over the struggling company.  The effect that the collaboration between the two has made on Nokia’s image was clearly to its advantage.  Although this is so, none of the rumors have been proven to be true.

While some fixate on the idea of Lenovo and Nokia, others are more interested in seeing a merger between Nokia and Intel.  In fact, the idea that Intel and Nokia would be working together is seen as more feasible, seeing that both parties could possibly benefit from it.  Nokia would have its chance at keeping up with the latest technologies (especially in developing smartphones), while Intel would have a cellphone brand exclusively to itself without having to go on a bandwagon with other smartphone producers.  Whether it is Lenovo or another company, Nokia’s chances today of being “back in the game” might be relying solely on a merger or a takeover.

With the ongoing crisis that Nokia is facing, it would be a smart move to have partnerships with other more “capable” companies, especially in the world of electronics.  If not, Nokia might soon lose any chances it has with getting back on top.

PokerStars to Settle Money Laundering Issues at $547M

Online poker leaders PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker have recently been subjected to criminal charges, with 10 out of its 11 executives pleading guilty of money laundering charges.  The settlement for the issues were closed at 731 million dollars, $547 million of which will be paid to the government and the remaining $184 million will be reserved for reimbursing the victims of the online money laundering scheme.

The settlement amount that will be paid to the government was approved by Leonard Sand, US District Judge, which is set to be paid in a period of three years.  The $184 million will be allotted and made available by the online poker companies to repay all the player victims.

The 184-million-dollar payment will actually cover for reimbursing the players of Full Tilt Poker, given that the company is no longer operational and it owes its players this amount of money.

The charges on Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars was based on the fact that the online poker magnates were laundering the money through making online payments to dummy merchants selling items like jewelry and other expensive products.  A Manhattan attorney, Preet Bharara, have been working on shutting down the online poker providers, on the grounds of improper operation of the gambling businesses that do not adhere to US government policies.

It is said that forfeiting the companies’ assets to the government is not to be taken as a sign that PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker are admitting their fault; rather, agreeing to the settlement is their means of having a more harmonious relationship with the government for them to be given the chance to operate fully and legally.  Besides, the grounds on which they were taken in were rather a “gray area” in terms of online poker gaming itself – since there is no or very limited rules and regulations implemented for this type of industry.  With this, the government will be coordinating with gambling authorities and other institutions to be able to properly regulate this kind of online gambling.

Aside from these two, another online poker company called Absolute Poker is also going through the settlement process with the government for similar reasons.  Although this is so, no conclusion has been made yet on the case of Absolute Poker.

After the ordeal, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker would now be making their best efforts to comply with all the regulations pertaining to gambling: whether online or otherwise.
