Matsushita Electric Industrial's (MC) investor relations team has posted a Q&A summary in English of the firm's 3rd quarter earnings. So far this is the only Japanese firm I know of that provides such a summary. Click on the hyperlink above for access. One interesting note is that Matsushita's net cash now totals 1.4 trillion yen or US$11.8 billion at today's exchange rate. However, M&As do not appear on the horizon and rather Matsushita says "it intends to use a substantial portion ... primarily in intellectual properties in order to strengthen key technologies as the core of its businesses."
