Sharp may cut 5,000 jobs worldwide
Japan's Sharp Corp is considering cutting just under 10 per cent of its consolidated workforce.
Tokyo: Japan's Sharp Corp is considering cutting 5,000 jobs globally, or just under 10 per cent of its consolidated workforce, a source close to the matter said on Thursday.
The job cuts will be sought through early retirement and will also include reductions resulting from a plan to hive off ownership of its underused Sakai LCD factory in western Japan to Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry, the source said.
The maker of Aquos TVs posted a record net loss in the year ended March 31 on a plunge in demand for its TVs that left it saddled with a glut of LCD panels.
