WHAT'S HAPPENING: Olympus Corp. has a shareholders' meeting on Friday. Olympus has a solid lock over investor votes for approval of its proposed new management.
HOPING FOR A MESSAGE: The former Olympus Corp. president who blew the whistle on massive fraud isn't optimistic about winning change. But he hopes for a solid show of opposition against management from overseas investors.
ABOUT THE SCANDAL: Although it initially denied wrongdoing, Olympus later acknowledged it hid $1.5 billion in investment losses dating back to the 1990s.
