Probably doesn't help them that I'd never heard of them until this announcement

The one in Durham is closed already. Sign on the window "Nearest store Harrogate"

Screw that! Miles away!

Crikey, looks like Toshiba could be in trouble.

Not sure how big they really are any more, but how does any company make a £7bn loss?!

I heard that as well. How they have fallen. Unlike Sony they didn't have a Games System to save them but 2nd largest Chip manufacturer in the world and still making a loose due to other sides of the business though.

They're pretty diverse I think, they own BNFL (the UK nuclear people) ultimately, and it ain't going so well.

All the problems are from Westinghouse their US nuclear power business. A licence to lose money.

The electronics side still makes money just not enough to cover their nuclear loses.

So we get the Japanese and the French to build our next generation nuclear plants and the wheels start to come off. No doubt we'll end up picking up the pieces at enormous cost.

Which is why they should be completely different companies so 1 doesn't take the other down..

These mega diverse companies do seem to be going out of fashion. GE has shrunk in recent years (insurance the bit I used to interact with in previous job was sold, nothing to do with main business).

Creates a problem especially at the top for the senior leadership who probably didn't know what was going on until too late. You aren't going to find someone skilled in both electronics / IT and nuclear engineering.
