Panasonic have already begun selling assets to raise funds, even selling real estate to improve their financial position. Panasonic's TV business generated more than $10.5 billion in sales during the peak 2009/2010 period, but is estimated to earn less than half of that amount going into the 2015/2016 period according to the Nikkei newspaper, not citing any sources unfortunately. A Panasonic spokesperson has said:

 

We are considering a number of options regarding our TV business. But nothing has been decided yet.
