        TOKYO– Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) has received a notice from Kazatomprom, a Kazakh state-owned company, dated October 2, 2017, exercising put options for the sale of all shares that Kazatomprom owns (10% ownership) in the holding companies for Westinghouse Electric Company and its group entities (collectively WEC).
        Following the acquisition of Kazatomprom’s stake, Toshiba will own all of WEC’s shares. However, as Toshiba announced on March 29, 2017 in “Notice on Chapter 11 Filing by Westinghouse Electric Company and its Group Entities,” WEC filed a voluntary petition with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of New York on March 29, 2017, under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. As a result, WEC Group is no longer under the control of Toshiba, and was deconsolidated from Toshiba's FY2016 full year business results.
        The Outline of Kazatomprom’s put option
        Currently, Toshiba holds 90% of WEC’s shares and Kazatomprom holds the remaining 10%. As a minority shareholder, Kazatomprom is entitled to sell its holding to Toshiba under certain conditions, pursuant to put option agreements that can be exercised on or after October 1, 2017. Kazatomprom has decided to exercise these rights.

Toshiba has already made provision for both of these impacts in its FY2017 forecast,statements of operations.
