Toshiba confirms SK Hynix, Apple to invest in memory business

Thursday 28 September 2017 | 11:24 CET | News
Toshiba's board has approved an agreement to sell the company's memory chip business to a consortium led by Bain Capital and including SK Hynix, Apple and other companies. As earlier indicated, the sale price is JPY 2 trillion, an amount that may be reduced by the value of Toshiba's stakes in joint ventures with Western Digital, if it cannot reach a legal settlement with the latter.
