Sharp Corp, a Japanese multinational specialised in the design and manufacturing of electronic products, announced plans to cut 5,000 jobs worldwide by the end of March 2013.
The measure is the company's reaction to a substantial net loss registered over the past year (July 2011 - June 2012).
Sharp detailed that the job cuts will be implemented globally, but did not specify plants or give more detailed information on which countries are affected.
