Panasonic is in “crisis situation”, the company is considering transferring or withdrawing from businesses with low growth potential


Asahi reports that Panasonic has not achieved its medium-term strategy goals and President Kusumi calls it a “crisis situation”:

Panasonic Holdings (HD) has revealed that it expects to fail to achieve two of the three targets set in its three-year mid-term strategy ending in fiscal 2024. President Yuki Kusumi acknowledged that the situation is “critical, as we are not meeting expectations.”
