Given the foregoing circumstances, Nidec Copal has resolved at a meeting of its Board of Directors held today to discontinue its specialty lens units operations so that the freed-up resources can be redirected to potential growth areas, such as high-performance digital optical units for digital single-lens reflex cameras and handheld devices, as well as for industrial and security applications. Nidec Copal estimates a Japanese GAAP-based loss on disposal of the discontinued operations at approximately 3.5 billion yen.
