POWER SWITCH: Electronics maker Royal Philips Electronics NV is selling the division that contains many of its well-known consumer products, such as audio and video equipment, to Japan's Funai Electric Co. for about $202 million, plus licensing fees.

SEEING THE LIGHT: Philips still makes household products like coffee machines and electric toothbrushes, but it is gradually shifting away from consumer electronics manufacturing. Its cutting-edge technologies are mostly concentrated in lighting and health care equipment.

BIGGER LOSS: A big fine from European regulators dragged on its fourth-quarter results, and Philips' loss widened from the year before.
