Canon to accelerate development of new mirrorless products (2018 financial results are out)


Canon's 2018 financial results are out:

  • Canon expects its annual operating profit to drop for the first time in three years
  • Canon forecasts an operating profit of 325 billion yen ($2.97 billion) for 2019, down 5.2 percent from 342.95 billion yen a year earlier - the first decline since 2016
  • Tough competition in mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and a stronger yen are also expected to hurt Canon’s earnings.
  • Canon shares have lost about 30 percent over the past year as the company slashed its annual profit forecast twice (Reuters)
