Japanese camera maker Olympus has been threatened with delisting from the Tokyo Stock Exchange unless they present financial earnings by December 14th.

The news comes as a further blow to Olympus as they fight for survival, and having traded on the exchange for the past 62 years it could mark the end of the company.

Olympus said that it aims to meet the deadline having recently admitted to a series of cover-ups concerning to securities losses - which are being investigated.

"Delisting does not mean it can't survive, or that it would definitely be forced to declare bankruptcy," Hiroyuki Fukunaga, CEO of Investrust told City AM.

"It has lost a lot of capital but its businesses still have high value.

"Potential investors can't consider buying out the businesses until all of the investigations are complete."
