And then again, Yamaha is selling for only $4 billion, which is highly
surprising compared to the two others?! Did something get lost in
translation? Are these figures really Taiwan or Hong Kong dollars? Yen?
Roland is publically traded and hence publish their key data, which
tells us that their sales for 2009 were at ¥100,506,864,000 (Yen!) which
then again still translates to around a billion US dollars - but nowhere
near the forty like it was quoted in the link I gave yesterday.
Roland: $1 billion
Yamaha: $4 billion
Kawai: $1/2 billion
My guess is that KORG would be selling maybe like Kawai? (while of
course targetting an entirely different market.)
In any case, $16 billion does not sound reasonable.
... And now back to our regular programming:
"How to make useful musical instruments out of the techno-trash others
have thrown in the dumpster?"
