Toshiba: Western Digital overstating rights over chip business
The statement comes a day after it said it was stepping up talks to sell the unit to a group led by Bain Capital and South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix.
But it also said it would continue weighing a rival offer from Western Digital.
"Toshiba regrets that Western Digital persistently overstates its limited consent rights in public statements," the Japanese company said in a statement, referring to the U.S. firm's claim that its consent was required for a sale as it had invested in Toshiba's semiconductor plant. ■
