Western Digital's Battle for Toshiba's Memory Finally Ends

WDC

Western Digital stated that it was "disappointed" in Toshiba's decision, and insisted that it violated contractual agreements with its subsidiary SanDisk. At the heart of this conflict is a NAND joint venture between Toshiba and SanDisk that Western Digital acquired for $15.8 billion last year. Toshiba's decision to go with SK Hynix and Bain represents a significant blow to Western Digital, but the company isn't giving up yet. If its consortium had won the Toshiba bid, Western Digital could potentially have become the second largest NAND maker in the world.

Western Digital takes legal step to stop Toshiba memory investment:The Asahi Shimbun

WDC

Western Digital Corp. filed its latest legal action against joint-venture chip partner Toshiba Corp. for moving to invest in a new flash memory production line without its help, the U.S. company said on Wednesday. The new arbitration requests, filed in the International Court of Arbitration that oversees the companies’ agreement, seeks to stop Toshiba from investing in the so-called Fab 6 facility in Yokkaichi, Mie Prefecture of Japan, unless Western Digital’s subsidiary Sandisk was also allowed to invest. The companies have battled for months over Toshiba’s efforts to sell its memory unit to raise cash to plug a hole in its finances caused by its bankrupt U.S. nuclear unit Westinghouse. Toshiba officials said earlier on Wednesday they had sealed a deal to sell Westinghouse for $18 billion to a consortium led by U.S. private equity firm Bain Capital LP that also included Apple Inc., helping to keep the Japanese conglomerate’s listing on the Tokyo stock exchange.

Western V. Toshiba: Not Over by a Long Shot, Says RBC

WDC

Shares of hard-disk drive and memory-chip maker Western Digital (WDC) are down 76 cents, or 0.9%, at $85.61, as the Street continues to mull the implications of yesterday’s announcement by its joint venture partner Toshiba (6502JP) that it picked a consortium led by private equity firm Bain Capital to buy its NAND chip factory — a deal Western called “disturbing. " Western last night followed up with an announcement saying it is taking further legal action, filing an additional “request for arbitration” with the International Court of Arbitration requesting a permanent injunction against Toshiba’s investing on its own in the "Fab 6” factory underlying their joint venture. This could possibly be achieved by Toshiba offering WDC an assured/increased long-term NAND supply and a clear roadmap of participation in the Fab-6 (and beyond) capex which will provide NAND bit growth to WDC. The arbitration panel could provide WDC interim relief by preventing any sale of memory assets until it decides on the consent rights.

Toshiba opts for Bain Capital's $22bn bid in semiconductor auction

WDC

Toshiba has opted to sell Toshiba Memory Corporation to a consortum led by Bain Capital - in a move that prompted an immediate response from rival bidder Western Digital. Bain is believed to have bid more than $22bn, which is well in excess of the $8bn-$10bn opening bids Toshiba received at the start of the process. The agreement gives SanDisk the right to participate in expansions and conversions of manufacturing capacity for BiCS 3D NAND flash memory products through joint investments in Fab 6 equipment. "The arbitration demand seeks, among other things, a permanent injunction preventing Toshiba from making unilateral investments in manufacturing equipment for Fab 6 without first giving SanDisk the opportunity to make a comparable investment in expansions and conversions of joint venture capacity for BiCS 3D NAND flash memory," claimed WD in a statement issued late last night.
