TAG McLaren Audio Limited has ceased development of new products and will commence a full strategic review of its participation in the audio market. Since its inception in 1998, TAG McLaren Audio has dedicated itself to producing quality audio and audio visual equipment. The present world economy has had a significant impact on the market for high quality audio and audio visual products and this has made it increasingly difficult to operate on commercially acceptable margins consistent with the levels of development investment required.

In a move designed to cut down on AOL Time Warner’s staggering debt, the company is reportedly selling its CD and DVD pressing plants to a Canadian Company for $1,000,000,000 in cash. While the move helped AOL’s stock today one has to wonder what it means to its long term plan as a record label and home video company. One of the biggest problems facing Sony Music and Universal Music Group is finding pressing plants that can make enough hybrid SACDs to keep up with the demand for the new format. Many new plants have been opened since the advent of SACD reportedly with support from Sony. AOL Time Warner’s move seems to be in the exact opposite direction.

CNN and The Wall Street Journal reported that there are rumors that AOL Time-Warner (WEA) and Bertelsmann (BMG) are in discussions for AOL to buyout BMG. The combination of the two labels would reduce the “big five” down to four. CNN says both sides aren’t commenting what is to be expected in such a large scale deal, if it is in fact going down. With the music business sucking wind for the last two years, record companies are prime for consolidation and the economies of scale that come with making two big companies into one. AOL is coming off of the worst quarter for ANY company in U.S. economic history (Q4, 2002) but might see an opportunity in buying up BMG to become even bigger in the music business.
