  • Toshiba has agreed to a $15 billion acquisition price from Japan Industrial Partners, an acquisition fund that includes large Japanese banks and corporations.
  • The acquisition would allow Toshiba to go private and delist from the Tokyo Stock Exchange, but it is unclear if active foreign investors who hold a significant amount of Toshiba’s shares will be satisfied with the offer.
  • The acquisition will keep Toshiba’s Japanese business in partnership with about 20 other Japanese companies, including Orix Corp., Rohm Co., and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp.

for takeover by a UK-based private equity firm.

Scandal-plagued Toshiba, a Japanese tech giant, has received a bid for takeover by a UK-based private equity firm, CVC Capital Partners. This comes after a tumultuous period for Toshiba, which has been rocked by accounting scandals, management reshuffles, and losses in its nuclear business.

The reported offer by CVC Capital Partners values Toshiba at $20 billion, and is said to involve the purchase of all outstanding shares in the company. The move by CVC Capital Partners is seen as an attempt to take advantage of Toshiba’s struggles, and to position the company for a turnaround.

Toshiba has not yet commented on the reported offer. However, the company has been quick to point out that it is in the process of implementing a restructuring plan, which includes selling off some of its businesses and cutting jobs.

The potential takeover by CVC Capital Partners is likely to face scrutiny from regulators and shareholders, given Toshiba’s troubled history. However, if successful, it could mark a major turning point for the once-dominant Japanese electronics firm.
