Merger Plans Of Toshiba, Fujitsu And Vaio Comes Unplugged

A plan to merge the personal computer businesses of Toshiba Corporation (TSE:6502), Fujitsu Limited (TSE:6702) and VAIO Corporation has been scrapped. The trio failed to come up with a growth plan for after the integration, despite hopes that with over 30% of the Japanese market between them, a single entity would be in a good position to compete overseas. "After all that talking, we still couldn't reach an agreement," said one frustrated negotiator. The three unveiled the integration plan in December last year, aiming to launch a merged company as early as April. "It can't be helped. We are back to square one," the negotiator said.

Merger Plans Of Toshiba, Fujitsu And Vaio Likely To Fall

Talks on integrating VAIO Corporation and the personal computer businesses of Toshiba Corporation (TSE:6502) and Fujitsu Limited (TSE:6702) likely will fall through amid disagreements over issues such as growth strategies and factory consolidation. Fujitsu now considers PCs a noncore business, focusing instead on information technology services. The Japanese company will consider whether to have the PC business go it alone or find another firm for such an integration.
