Canon drops to more than two-month low after EU threatens huge fine, Reuters reports

Canon Drops To More Than Two-month Low After EU Threatens Huge Fine, Reuters Reports

Financial troubles for Canon after the EU threatens the company with a big fine.

Reuters reports:

TOKYO, July 7 (Reuters) – Canon Inc’s stock fell to its lowest levels in more than two months on Friday after EU regulators said they may fine it up to 10 percent of annual revenue for jumping the gun in its acquisition of Toshiba Corp’s medical unit.

The EU Commission said it had reached a preliminary view that Canon breached rules by using a so-called “warehousing” two-step transaction structure involving an interim buyer to buy the company prior to obtaining relevant approvals.
Ten percent of Canon’s annual revenue would be roughly equivalent to $2.9 billion.

Canon’s next mirrorless camera is the EOS M20, to be announced in August 2017

Canon’s Next Mirrorless Camera Is The EOS M20, To Be Announced In August 2017

We knew Canon would release a new entry-level mirrorless camera since registration at a certification authority leaked over the web. And we anticipated it might be named EOS M20.

New rumor has it that Canon will announce the EOS M20 at the end of August 2017.

No specifications so far. Being the replacement for the EOS M10 and an entry-level MILC, it will not be a powerhouse, though some of the tech and features of the EOS M5 and EOS M6 might be on board.

Stay tuned.
