    Default Sega Sammy splits video games and pachinko machines into separate companies

    Sega Sammy will split apart its video games and amusement divisions as part of a new company structure.
    In a statement released last week, the Japanese firm said it has "been working on structural reform to transform its business structure to adapt to the external environment."
    Going forward, the organisation will be divided into Sega Group Corporation, which covers its video games operations, and Sammy Corporation, which encompasses its "pachinko, pachislot, arrange-ball, and jankyu machines"
    Both will be wholly owned subsidiaries of Sega Sammy, but will operate as separate companies rather than divisions of a single entity. This will take effect in April this year.
    In explaining the decision, Sega Sammy said that the new structure would be "more efficient" and "[accelerate] decision-making."
