Toshiba comments on acquisition proposal

April 9, 2021

In recent days, Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported on a possible acquisition of Toshiba by CVC Capital Partners (CVC), after which Toshiba confirmed it had received a proposal.

Toshiba in its statement on 7 April said that it had received an initial proposal, and will ask for further clarification and give it careful consideration.

In an announcement released on 9 April, Osamu Nagayama, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Toshiba Corporation has commented on the acquisition proposal from CVC Capital Partners as below:

“As announced in the public statement dated April 7th, Toshiba has received a preliminary and non-legally binding initial proposal from CVC Capital Partners (CVC) regarding the acquisition of Toshiba and to get the same privatized. This initial proposal by CVC was completely unsolicited and not initiated by Toshiba by all means. The proposal does not go through detailed review of Toshiba business.

“Further, CVC’s initial proposal is conditional on a variety of matters such as clearances of the Anti-trust registrations of the relevant jurisdictions, the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act of Japan and necessary financing. Furthermore, the proposed transaction is not contemplated to be financed by CVC alone; rather, it is indicated in CVC’s proposal that it would seek financing assistance from certain co-investors and financial institutions in pursuing the proposed transaction. We expect that such financing process would require a substantial amount of time and involve complexity for consideration.

“It is the Board’s responsibility to act for the benefit of the best interests of the Company and our shareholders. Toshiba Board will conduct careful review of the initial proposal when it is further clarified in the future.”
