Toshiba Corporation (TSE:6502) has started the process to sell a minority stake in its profitable flash memory chip business, expecting to fetch several billion dollars as it faces a bigger-than-expected write-down for its U.S. nuclear business, Kyodo News reported. Permira Advisers Ltd. and Bain Capital Private Equity, LP are interested in the bid for what is expected to be the sale of 20%-30% of the memory chip business, which Toshiba is expected to split off, Kyodo said, citing sources. Japan's big banks and the Development Bank of Japan are considering buying into a potential spinoff of Toshiba's (TOSYY) chip operations.
