  • We're looking over in Asia of the potential sale of Toshiba's memory chip unit,

    大家最近都在關注東芝會不會真的把記憶體晶片部門賣掉

  • and many have felt that this was really the jewel in their crown.

    很多人認為這個部門是東芝最重要的部門

  • But you've been writing it actually might be the right time to get rid of this.

    但你卻寫道:現在割捨這個部門可能會是最佳決策

  • Yeah, exactly. I'm one of the many people who do feel that it is a jewel in their crown,

    是的,我不否認它是東芝最有價值的部門之一,

  • given that they've got this nuclear scandal that's going on, that's really hurting their financials.

    尤其考量到最近發生的核災事件對他們財務所造成的嚴重虧損

  • They're going to have to take a loss on it.

    這個損失是無可避免的

  • But in the Gadfly column, I wrote, in the last 24 hours, I do argue that the issue here for Toshiba and the chip business is,

    但昨天在我的 Gadfly 專欄中,我提到,東芝和它的晶片部門目前面臨的問題是:

  • we may be hitting peak memory.

    晶片的記憶容量的發展性可能將達上限

  • What they're doing is making memory chips the most prevalent type of chips.

    他們把記憶體晶片普及化,成為所有晶片中最普及的一種

  • It's very much a commodity chip, and what we're seeing now in China is that there's a lot of new upstarts, competitors,

    這些晶片已成為一種消費性產品,我們可以在中國大陸看到許多新的製造商和現有製造商

  • who are spending a lot of money to build capacity,

    花費大筆費用擴增產能

  • like incredible amounts of moneywe're talking billions and billions of dollars over the next few yearsto build capacity.

    非常大筆的金額,未來幾年中,他們會花上幾十、幾百億

  • And in a commodity business like memory chips, when there's a lot of extra capacity,

    在這種消費性產業中,在產能很高的情況下

  • oversupply can lead to falling prices, and it becomes this vicious cycle of lower prices, making it very difficult to make profits.

    生產過剩會導致價格下降,從此進入價格不斷下跌的惡性循環,也就很難賺取利潤

  • And in fact, ironically, one of the ways that you have to deal with that

    事實上,好笑的是,你要應付價格下降的問題,

  • is to turn out more chips just to create revenue to help cover the depreciation cost.

    就得再生產更多的晶片來增加營收

  • So really, there's a big risk to anyone in the memory industry over the next few years,

    所以,晶片產業中的所有競爭者,在未來幾年內都會面臨一個很大的風險

  • as all this new supply comes online in China, in the next 2 to 3, 4 years.

    隨著中國大陸廠商在未來兩到四年內逐漸加入生產行列

  • And this may be a great time for Toshiba to get out of that business and to sell to somebody who wants to be in the business.

    所以現在對東芝來說,是一個放棄晶片事業,並將其出售給有意待在晶片產業中的競爭者的好時機

  • Well, maybe Toshiba hoping that Foxconn and, indeed, some of the other potential buyers aren't reading your Gadfly column.

    也許東芝正在祈禱富智康和其他可能的買家不會讀到你的 Gadfly 專欄
