It turned out that the investment fund that proposed the acquisition to Toshiba, a major electronics manufacturer, offered a purchase price of about 5,000 yen per share.
Toshiba has set up an in-house dedicated team to urgently consider the impact of the acquisition on management.
Toshiba has received proposals for acquisition from UK-based investment fund CVC Capital Partners and others.
According to the people concerned, it was newly found that the investment fund side offered about 5,000 yen per share as the purchase price of the shares in this proposal.
This is above the closing price on the Tokyo Stock Exchange on the 7th when the stock price soared.
Toshiba will set up a new team, including the vice president, within the company to urgently consider the impact of the acquisition on management.
The team plans to come to a conclusion as soon as possible by considering what kind of impact it will have on financing if the shares are closed to the public and delisted in response to the proposal.
