Technology   Toshiba to continue weighing a rival offer

Toshiba said its business partner Western Digital had been "persistently" overstating its rights over a memory chip unit that the Japanese firm is looking to offload.

The statement comes a day after it said it was stepping up talks to sell the unit to a group led by Bain Capital and South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix.

But it also said it would continue weighing a rival offer from Western Digital.

"Toshiba regrets that Western Digital persistently overstates its limited consent rights in public statements," the Japanese company said in a statement, referring to the U.S. firm's claim that its consent was required for a sale as it had invested in Toshiba's semiconductor plant.
