April 12, 2021 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Farallon Capital Management, L.L.C. (“Farallon”) today commented on the disclosure by Toshiba Corporation (“Toshiba”) (6502.T) and media reports of the privatization proposal made by CVC Capital Partners to Toshiba.

Toshiba’s board has a duty to maximize mid to long-term enterprise value by evaluating the privatization proposal in a sincere manner through a fair process that includes a proactive market check and formation of an independent special committee. We, as shareholders of Toshiba, expect Toshiba’s board to fully fulfill such duty.


We have continued to engage constructively with Toshiba regarding its governance and capital allocation. A privatization is one of the effective measures that can improve these key areas by further aligning the interests of shareholders and management.
