Unhappy Max Matsuura leaves Avex

Somewhat Ayu-related, but Max Matsuura from Avex will be resigning. It's not entirely clear, but from what I could gather from an auto-translation from Yomiuri, he's leaving because of some management issues.

Not entirely sure. I tried translating the article from Sanspo, and it seems that he left because of a difference of a management view. He's supposed to soon establish Avex DI DI (present Avex) in April, and he'll open an import wholesale business for CDs. Not sure if this is correct, but I think he was supposed to be inaugurated as the company vice president on October 1.

I assume that someone else would take his place shortly, but whether that affects her career (along with others like Namie, DAI, etc) drastically or not is unknown. I just hope they'll manage with his absense

I'm pretty sure that he's gonna stay with Avex, but just doing another thing.

No. According to those articles he is leaving avex entirely, not just changing his role there.

Then what about that "Avex DI DI" bit? An auto-translation glitch? Or perhaps it meant what he was currently (or now, formerly) doing?

That was the initial form of avex established by him back in 1988.

Auto-translations suck. Don't use them.

If you read it in past tense rather than future, which is what it looks like it should be, it seems to be recalling his history before this point. Avex DI DI specifically being created in April, 1988 (?). So I agree with your second hypothesis.

If he was to become vice president, I don't know if he'd suddenly (or if Avex would let him) create an off-shoot company and leave that position. Avex would probably have a hard time with that.

And if the auto-translation is correct, it states that his retirement is worrisome. So it is retirement, not a new project. Though that does not mean he can't create his own company. Does anyone know how old he is? He may be in a postition to simply retire if he has enough money. Though his love of music probably won't allow that.

I believe he's 38, but I'm not sure of his actual birthdate.

from what I've read on that article, it is possible that ELT, ayu etc will all move out of avex trax to follow him...

Hopefully this would give ayu a chance to produce herself. Several other artists do it, I don't know why she couldn't.
