Philips has announced that it has agreed to sell its audio and video business to Funai Electric Co. Philips has made audio and video items such as home theaterspeakers, smart phone docking stations, and other products for a number of years. Philips says that it is selling off that portion of its business to allow it to focus on more profitable home appliances and health care operations.
Philips CEO Frans van Houten said that the A/V business was shrinking and becoming "margin dilutive" even though the segment was profitable last year. The company plans to focus on appliances such as shavers, toasters, juicers, and coffeemakers.
Analysts were glad to hear about the deal saying that it was an important investment for the company. Philips also says that shedding the two business segments will complete its repositioning away from consumer electronics.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
