BlackRock lends 46 million shares as shorts target Toshiba

Art Post ·
TOKYO: Buried in an obscure filing this week was another hint of the trouble faced by Toshiba Corp. BlackRock Inc, the third-biggest owner of the embattled Japanese company, indicated in a report to the finance ministry that there’s been a huge increase in the stock it has out on loan. The world’s largest money manager said about 46 million Toshiba shares owned by its units, or about one-fifth of its total stake, are temporarily being held by others. That’s up from just 1.4 million when it...

Brave is the auditor that takes on Toshiba’s accounts

Art Post ·
PwC Aarata took a big gamble last year when it took over the audit of Toshiba’s scandal-marred accounts. Its predecessor Ernst & Young ShinNihon had incurred heavy reputational damage after regulators in 2015 accused the accounting firm of failing to detect that the Japanese industrial conglomerate had inflated its profits by $1.3bn over seven years. It was a risky wager but one that also posed an opportunity for PwC, which has the smallest share of the Japanese auditing market among the...

First is this your actual reply to the account looking at thoseToshiba products listed (455 & 305)? If yes and they have a great history with the Toshiba product, telling them there a "bottom dweller" would make anyone think that you're only wanting to sell them what YOU'RE offering. The models they requested are older models of Toshiba and who knows if they've worked well for them or not. Also if you research the Okidata product, most of their MFP's are based on the Toshiba platform now...

FYI: Toshiba, overall, is in the top ten for R&D Spend-to-Sales ratios. "Bottom dweller" really is not a fair use of words. With any device manufacturer, product is only as good as its dealer support. Get references if need be. RE: maintenance; The asker is talking B&W devices not color. Regardless, get the maintenance. Fewer spikes in copy quality or hardware issues because you'll make that phone call to fix rather than putting up with poor copy quality, etc. for fear of how much it...

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck then it must be a duck.

Art, I like your general guidance to the initial poster, and I won't grade your writing since this isn't an English class. In regard to this brief post conversation, I think honesty is the best policy with customers and with ourselves. Yes Tim, they probably are in the top ten. However, the customer was asking which is the best. By rankings in the market place, the top seven do not include Toshiba. They fall within the bottom 7% of market share for shipments and the bottom 8.6% for market...

From what I remember I do not think I would want to hand out brochures from a ComColor device. Were they not more for communication than presentation? I know it has been awhile for me so perhaps they have evolved. Just sayin'.

Canon Has Agreed To Purchase Toshiba’s Medical Unit After Toshiba Scandal

Art Post ·
Canon Inc. has agreed to pay roughly 665.5 billion yen ($5.9 billion) to purchase Toshiba’s medical equipment unit. Toshiba continues to sell off units to focus on its core business in the wake of a massive accounting scandal last year. According to the terms of the deal, Canon will acquire 100 percent of Toshiba Medical System’s common stock. The acquisition gives Canon control of a company that develops and sells technical services for medical equipment, including diagnostic X-ray systems,...

Very interesting move from Toshiba Machine Co., here. Toshiba Tec could do the same, however they would need to buy almost 50% of the shares that Toshiba Corp owns. Toshiba Tec could then cut ties and Toshiba Corp would benefit with a large influx of cash.

I am not sure what you are talking about since RISO has stacks of brochures that are being handed out everyday. I know a year ago RISO was updating the brochures so maybe the end user was not able to get one in that transition time

this blog was from over a year ago. "Today, I get an email from my people that Riso (a company that lives and dies with putting ink on paper) is no longer offering full color printed brochures." I'm thinking that RISO reversed that decision on the brochures.

Toshiba announced this week, breakthrough electric vehicle battery technology that will enable a compact car to travel 320 km (190 miles) on a six minute recharge. Available in 2019. Toshiba SCiB batteries are currently in Honda Fit EV and Mitsubishi MiEV cars. I was in a Ford car dealership this week and told them this.

Toshiba sold 49.8% of its flash memory business to Bain Capital which includes Apple and Dell as partners. Toshiba still controls 50.2% of the shares and future revenues. The lead to this article omitted this key fact.

Nothing was "reliable" back then! Such a funky era of technology thinking back on it all. There were so many different physical configurations of copy machines back then. Each was a marvel of engineering chaos. I remember it well since the company that first hired me would work on anything they could get their hands on.
