Toshiba Comments on Benefits of Joint Stipulation with SanDisk

Press Releases   •   Jul 29, 2017 00:05 GMT

  • Toshiba and SanDisk/Western Digital have reached a mutually acceptable agreement that removes the need for further action by the court on SanDisk’s request for a preliminary injunction.
  • The parties have agreed that Toshiba will publicly announce, within 24 hours, the signing of any agreement that contemplates a “Closing.” This will apply until 60 days after an arbitration panel is formed.
  • Toshiba has also agreed to notify SanDisk two weeks before such a Closing occurs. This also applies until 60 days after an arbitration panel is formed.
  • The agreement does not require Toshiba to recognize SanDisk’s claims over its consent rights to the transfer of Toshiba’s memory business.
  • This joint stipulation follows the court’s suggestion, during the previous hearing on July 14, that Toshiba and SanDisk negotiate an agreement rather than requiring the court to rule.
  • Toshiba remains intent on soon entering into a definitive agreement for the sale of its memory business with one of the bidders.

SAN FRANCISCO and TOKYO—Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO 6502) today entered into a joint stipulation with SanDisk LLC (SanDisk), a subsidiary of Western Digital Corporation (Western Digital) (NASDAQ: WDC), removing the need for further action by the Superior Court of California for the County of San Francisco on SanDisk’s motion for preliminary injunctive relief relating to the sale of Toshiba’s memory business.

Toshiba and SanDisk have agreed that Toshiba will publicly announce within 24 hours the signing of a definitive agreement that contemplates a later “Closing,” i.e. the “transfer, sale, assignment or conveyance” of all or any portion of Toshiba’s or an affiliate’s shares and ownership interests in three specific joint venture companies and other defined contractual rights and obligations. This stipulation will remain in effect until 60 days after the international arbitration panel has been formed. Toshiba and SanDisk have also agreed that Toshiba will provide further notice two weeks before any such Closing occurs.

Importantly, this agreement does not obligate Toshiba to provide notice regarding transactions undertaken in the ordinary course of its NAND flash memory business, nor does it constitute any agreement by Toshiba that SanDisk has any consent rights over any sale of the shares of Toshiba Memory Corporation.

The agreement also preserves Toshiba’s jurisdictional objections and does not mean that Toshiba is submitting to the jurisdiction of the California court for any purpose other than entering and enforcing this limited joint stipulation.

Dr. Yasuo Naruke, Senior Executive Vice President of Toshiba Corporation stated, “We are very pleased to have reached this mutually acceptable understanding which is effective for a very limited time and which recognizes Toshiba’s right to negotiate and sign a definitive agreement for the sale of its memory business. Nothing in the agreement requires Toshiba to alter its position that there is no contractual requirement to seek SanDisk’s consent to the transfer of Toshiba’s memory business.

“Further, as a practical matter, we don’t expect to close a deal during the period addressed in the order. Closing a transaction of this magnitude would require many months – well beyond the limited timeframe specified in the ruling. Toshiba therefore remains focused on preparing for the ICC (Chamber of Commerce) arbitration process, which we believe is the appropriate venue to address these issues. We look forward to successfully presenting Toshiba’s position to the tribunal, which we believe will be formed within the next month or so.”

Toshiba and Sem-Calaca Power Corporation to Cooperate in Thermal Power Plant’s Total Asset Management

Press Releases   •   Jul 27, 2017 19:00 GMT

- Will improve plant life-span, operation and performance with state of the art technologies

TOKYO—Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it has concluded a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Sem-Calaca Power Corporation (SCPC), a DMCI Holdings group company, on a partnership to investigate the deployment of total asset management including plant optimization, predictive monitoring with IoT solutions and extending the operating life of the Calaca Thermal Power Plant in Luzon, Republic of the Philippines.

The scope of MOU covers application of IoT to predictive monitoring of the plant’s equipment to detect emerging problems, securing a longer operating life, and staff training to enhance operation and management capabilities, including repair and maintenance.

SCPC operates the four-unit, 900MW Calaca Thermal Power Plant in southern Luzon. Toshiba delivered the steam turbine, generator and related equipment for Unit 1 in 1984, and has subsequently provided technical support for the plant.

“We are excited to announce this partnership with Sem-Calaca Power Corporation,” said Takao Konishi, Vice President of the Thermal & Hydro Power Systems & Services Div. in Toshiba’s Energy Systems & Solutions Company. “We have worked with DMCI group since they took ownership of the plant, and built up a good relationship over the years. We hope to advance this partnership further, and to enhance customer support, by applying our cutting-edge technology, including IoT technology, to the plant’s operation and maintenance. We hope to contribute to power supply stability in the Philippines and to enhance customer satisfaction.”

Ishidro Consunji, President and CEO of DMCI Holdings added, “We are very satisfied with the technical support services that Toshiba supplies. We expect to win life-cycle cost savings for Calaca by reducing unexpected outage, and to achieve optimized, comprehensive and efficient O&M management through the partnership envisaged by the MOU. ”

The Philippines is seeing fast growing demand for electricity. In 2016, temperature increases caused by El Nino pushed up year-on-year demand by 10%. Coal-fired power plants accounts for 36.5% of total power generation and for almost half the capacity increase in 2016. In these circumstances, improving plant generating efficiency and staff capabilities in operation and maintenance capabilities are essential.

Toshiba has a long history of plant equipment supply in Philippines, dating back to Angat, a hydro project, in 1964. Most recently, Toshiba carried out a steam turbine rehabilitation project for Bac-Man Geothermal Power Plant Units 1 and 2 in 2014-2015.

Toshiba continues to develop customer support capabilities at the global level in support of improving plant generating efficiency, in order to help meet expanding demand for power in growth markets in Asia and elsewhere.

Consunji, President and COO of SCPC (center), as Isidro A. Consunji, President and CEO of DMCI Holdings (right) and Jaime B.
