Toshiba kiest gewenste bieder voor de verkoop van Toshiba Memory Corporation

TOKYO – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) kondigt aan dat zijn raad van bestuur vandaag heeft besloten het consortium dat bestaat uit Innovation Network Corporation of Japan, Bain Capital Private Equity LP en Development Bank of Japan te selecteren als voorkeursbieder als het gaat om de verkoop van Toshiba Memory Corporation (TMC).

TMC is op 1 april 2017 gesplitst van Toshiba Corporation, als een volledige dochteronderneming die verantwoordelijk is voor de geheugentak van Toshiba. De afsplitsing was nodig om een verdere groei van de bedrijfsonderdeel te garanderen en Toshiba te ondersteunen bij het verbeteren van de financiële structuur van het concern.

Selection of Preferred Bidder for the Sale of Toshiba Memory Corporation

TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) hereby announces that its board of directors today resolved to select the consortium of Innovation Network Corporation of Japan, Bain Capital Private Equity LP, and Development Bank of Japan (“the Consortium”) a preferred bidder in respect of the sale of Toshiba Memory Corporation (“TMC”).

TMC was split from Toshiba Corporation on April 1, 2017, as a wholly owned subsidiary responsible for Toshiba’s memory business. This was done toward securing further management resources essential for the continued growth of the memory business, and to support Toshiba in enhancing its financial structure.

Toshiba has determined that the Consortium has presented the best proposal, not only in terms of valuation, but also in respect to certainty of closing, retention of employees, and maintenance of sensitive technology within Japan.

Following this decision, Toshiba’s intention is to reach a mutually satisfactory definitive agreement with the Consortium by the date of its annual ordinary general meeting of shareholders, scheduled for June 28, and to close the transaction within March 2018, upon clearance of all the required processes, including competition law approvals in key jurisdictions.
