TDK Corp., a leading high-technology company, last week announced a number of restructuring measures aimed at improving its financial positions. Among the most significant changes is the plan to either sell its optical disc manufacturing business or simple withdrawing from Blu-ray disc manufacturing as the BDs are becoming a commodity with low profit margins.

In a bid to establish strong business base for growth, TDK wants to focus on passive components business, heads for hard drives and rechargeable batteries. As a result, the company will optimize and restructure its business portfolio. Among the noteworthy changes is the intention to withdraw or sell Blu-ray business by the end of March, 2014.

TDK is one of the leading innovators of Blu-ray technology, which was first to offer multi-layer Blu-ray disc media, including BDXL. At Ceatec Japan 2010 trade-show TDK showcased 1TB Blu-ray optical media that features 32 layers in total (16 per side) with each layer capable of holding of 32GB of data.

TDK hopes that its restructuring cost optimization measures will bring it benefits equal to $82.12 billion.

The last I saw they were selling 50pk spindles of Ritek discs under the TDK label. So what does this say about their present cost exposure to the BD-R market?
