History[edit] 1939 to 2000[edit] Toshiba
Toshiba
was founded in 1939 by the merger of Shibaura
Shibaura
Seisakusho ( Shibaura

Shibaura Seisakusho
had been founded as Tanaka Seisakusho
Tanaka Seisakusho
by Tanaka Hisashige in July 1875 as Japan's first manufacturer of telegraph equipment.[6] In 1904, it was renamed Shibaura
Shibaura
Seisakusho. Through the first decades of the 20th century, Shibaura Seisakusho
Shibaura Seisakusho
had become a major manufacturer of heavy electrical machinery as Japan
Japan
modernized during the Meiji Era
Meiji Era
and became a world industrial power. Tokyo
Tokyo
Denki was founded as Hakunetsusha
Hakunetsusha
in 1890 and had been Japan's first producer of incandescent electric lamps. It later diversified into the manufacture of other consumer products and in 1899 had been renamed Tokyo

In 1987, Tocibai Machine, a subsidiary of Toshiba, was accused of illegally selling CNC milling machines used to produce very quiet submarine propellers to the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
in violation of the CoCom agreement, an international embargo on certain countries to COMECON countries. The Toshiba-Kongsberg scandal involved a subsidiary of Toshiba
Toshiba
and the Norwegian company Kongsberg Vaapenfabrikk. The incident strained relations between the United States
United States
and Japan, and resulted in the arrest and prosecution of two senior executives, as well as the imposition of sanctions on the company by both countries.[9] Senator John Heinz
John Heinz
of Pennsylvania said "What Toshiba and Kongsberg did was ransom the security of the United States
United States
for $517 million." 2000 to 2010[edit] In 2001, Toshiba
Toshiba
signed a contract with Orion Electric, one of the world's largest OEM consumer video electronic makers and suppliers, to manufacture and supply finished consumer TV and video products for Toshiba
Toshiba
to meet the increasing demand for the North American market. The contract ended in 2008, ending seven years of OEM production with Orion. In December 2004, Toshiba
Toshiba
quietly announced it would discontinue manufacturing traditional in-house cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions. In 2006, Toshiba
Toshiba
terminated production of in-house plasma TVs. To ensure its future competitiveness in the flat-panel digital television and display market, Toshiba
Toshiba
has made a considerable investment in a new kind of display technology called SED. Before World War II, Toshiba
Toshiba
was a member of the Mitsui
Mitsui
Group zaibatsu (family-controlled vertical monopoly). Today Toshiba
Toshiba
is a member of the Mitsui
Mitsui
keiretsu (a set of companies with interlocking business relationships and shareholdings), and still has preferential arrangements with Mitsui Bank and the other members of the keiretsu. Membership in a keiretsu has traditionally meant loyalty, both corporate and private, to other members of the keiretsu or allied keiretsu. This loyalty can extend as far as the beer the employees consume, which in Toshiba's case is Asahi. In July 2005, BNFL
BNFL
confirmed it planned to sell Westinghouse Electric Company, then estimated to be worth $1.8 billion (£1 billion).[10] The bid attracted interest from several companies including Toshiba, General Electric
General Electric
and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
and when the Financial Times
Financial Times
reported on 23 January 2006 that Toshiba
Toshiba
had won the bid, it valued the company's offer at $5 billion (£2.8 billion). The sale of Westinghouse by the Government of the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
surprised many industry experts, who questioned the wisdom of selling one of the world's largest producers of nuclear reactors shortly before the market for nuclear power was expected to grow substantially; China, the United States
United States
and the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
are all expected to invest heavily in nuclear power.[11] The acquisition of Westinghouse for $5.4 billion was completed on 17 October 2006, with Toshiba
Toshiba
obtaining a 77 percent share, and partners The Shaw Group
The Shaw Group
a 20 percent share and Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. a 3 percent share. In late 2007, Toshiba
Toshiba
took over from Discover Card
Discover Card
as the sponsor of the top-most screen of One Times Square
One Times Square
in New York City.[12] It displays the iconic 60-second New Year's countdown on its screen, as well as messages, greetings, and advertisements for the company. In January 2009, Toshiba
Toshiba
acquired the HDD business of Fujitsu.[13][14] 2010 to 2013[edit] Toshiba
Toshiba
announced on 16 May 2011, that it had agreed to acquire all of the shares of the Swiss-based advanced-power-meter maker Landis+Gyr for $2.3 billion.[15] In 2010 the company released a series of television models including the WL768, YL863, VL963 designed in collaboration with Danish designer Timothy Jacob Jensen.[16]

In April 2012, Toshiba
Toshiba
agreed to acquire IBM's point-of-sale business for $850 million, making it the world's largest vendor of point-of-sale systems.[17][18] In July 2012, Toshiba
Toshiba
was accused of fixing the prices of LCD panels in the United States
United States
at a high level. While such claims were denied by Toshiba,[19] they have agreed to settle alongside several other manufacturers for a total of $571 million.[20] In December 2013, Toshiba
Toshiba
completed its acquisition of Vijai Electricals Limited plant at Hyderabad & set up its own base for manufacturing of Transmission & Distribution products(Transformers & Switchgears) under the Social Infrastructure Group in India as Toshiba

OCZ Storage Solutions
Acquisition[edit]

In January 2014, Toshiba
Toshiba
completed its acquisition of OCZ
OCZ
Storage Solutions.[21] OCZ
OCZ
Technology stock was halted on November 27, 2013. OCZ
OCZ
then stated they expected to file a petition for bankruptcy and that Toshiba
Toshiba
Corporation had expressed interest in purchasing its assets in a bankruptcy proceeding.[22][23] On December 2, 2013, OCZ announced Toshiba
Toshiba
had agreed to purchase nearly all of OCZ's assets for $35 million.[24] The deal was completed on January 21, 2014 when the assets of OCZ
OCZ
Technology Group became a new independently-operated subsidiary of Toshiba
Toshiba
named OCZ
OCZ
Storage Solutions.[25] OCZ
OCZ
Technology Group then changed its name to ZCO Liquidating Corporation;[26] on August 18, 2014, ZCO Liquidating Corporation and its subsidiaries were liquidated.[27] OCZ Storage Solutions
OCZ Storage Solutions
was dissolved on April 1, 2016 and absorbed into Toshiba
Toshiba
America Electronic Components, Inc.,[28][29] with OCZ
OCZ
becoming a brand of Toshiba. In March 2014, Toshiba
Toshiba
sued SK Hynix
SK Hynix
accusing the company for stealing technology of their NAND flash memory.[30] In October 2014, Toshiba
Toshiba
and United Technologies
United Technologies
agreed a deal to expand their joint venture outside Japan.[31] Toshiba
Toshiba
announced in early 2015 that they would stop making televisions in its own factories. From 2015 onward, Toshiba televisions will be made by Compal for the U.S., or by Vestel
Vestel
and other manufacturers for the European market. In January 2016, Toshiba's security division unveiled a new bundle of services for schools that use its surveillance equipment. The program, which is intended for both K-12 and higher education, includes education discounts, alerts and post-warranty support, among other features, on its IP-based security gear.[32] As of March 2016, Toshiba
Toshiba
is preparing to start construction on a cutting-edge new semiconductor plant in Japan
Japan
that will mass-produce chips based on the ultra-dense flash variant. Toshiba
Toshiba
expects to spend approximately 360 billion yen, or $3.2 billion, on the project through May 2019.[33] In April 2016, Toshiba
Toshiba
recalled 100,000 faulty laptop lithium-ion batteries, which are made by Panasonic, that can overheat, posing burn and fire hazards to consumers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Toshiba
Toshiba
first announced the recall in January, and said it was recalling the batteries in certain Toshiba
Toshiba
Notebook computers sold since June 2011.[34] In September 2016, Toshiba
Toshiba
announced the first wireless power receiver IC using the Qi 1.2.2 specification, developed in association with the Wireless Power Consortium.[35] In late December 2016 Toshiba
Toshiba
announced losses in the Westinghouse subsidiary from nuclear plant construction would lead to a write-down of several billion dollars.[36] In January 2017, a person with direct knowledge of the matter reported that the company plans on making its chip division a separate business.[37] 2015 accounting scandal[edit] Toshiba
Toshiba
first announced in May 2015 that it was investigating an accounting scandal and it might have to revise its profits for the previous three years.[38][39] On 21 July 2015, CEO Hisao Tanaka announced his resignation amid an accounting scandal that he called "the most damaging event for our brand in the company's 140-year history." Profits had been inflated by $1.2 billion over the previous seven years.[40] Eight other senior officials also resigned, including the two previous CEOs.[41] Chairman Masashi Muromachi was appointed acting CEO.[42] Following the scandal, Toshiba
Toshiba
Corp. was removed from a stock index showcasing Japan's best companies. That was the second reshuffle of the index, which picks companies with the best operating income, return on equity and market value.[43] In September 2015, Toshiba
Toshiba
shares fell to their lowest point in two and a half years. The firm said in a statement that its net losses for the quarterly period were 12.3 billion yen ($102m; £66m). The company noted poor performances in its televisions, home appliances and personal computer businesses.[44] In December 2015, Muromachi said the episode had wiped about $8 billion off Toshiba's market value. He forecast a record 550 billion yen (about US $4.6 billion) annual loss and warned the company would have to overhaul its TV and computer businesses. Toshiba
Toshiba
would not be raising funds for two years, he said. The next week, a company spokesperson announced Toshiba
Toshiba
would in early 2016 seek 300 billion yen ($2.5 billion), taking the company's indebtedness to more than 1 trillion yen (about $8.3 billion).[45] In May 2016, it was announced that Satoshi Tsunakawa, the former head of Toshiba's medical equipment division, was named CEO. This appointment came after the accounting scandal that occurred.[46][47] 2017 US nuclear construction liabilities[edit] In February 2017, Toshiba
Toshiba
revealed unaudited details of a 390 billion yen ($3.4 billion) corporate wide loss, mainly arising from its majority owned US based Westinghouse nuclear construction subsidiary which was written down by 712 billion yen ($6.3 billion). On 14 February 2017, Toshiba
Toshiba
delayed filing financial results, and chairman Shigenori Shiga, formerly chairman of Westinghouse, resigned.[48][49][50] Construction delays, regulatory changes and cost overruns at Westinghouse built nuclear facilities Vogtle units 3 and 4 in Waynesboro, Georgia and VC Summer units 2 and 3 in South Carolina, are cited as the main causes of the dramatic fall in Toshiba's financial performance and collapse in share price. Fixed priced construction contracts negotiated by Westinghouse with Georgia Power have left Toshiba
Toshiba
with uncharted liabilities that will likely result in the sale of key Toshiba
Toshiba
operating subsidiaries to secure the company's future.[51] Westinghouse filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection on 29 March 2017.[52][53] It was estimated this would cost 9 billion dollar annual net loss.[54] On April 11, 2017, Toshiba
Toshiba
filed unaudited quarterly results. Auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers
PricewaterhouseCoopers
had not signed of the accounts because of uncertainties at Westinghouse. Toshiba
Toshiba
stated that "substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern exists".[4][55] On April 25, 2017, Toshiba
Toshiba
announced its decision to replace its auditor after less than a year. Earlier in April, the company filed twice-delayed business results without an endorsement from auditor PricewaterhouseCoopers
PricewaterhouseCoopers
(PwC).[54][56] On September 20, 2017, Toshiba's board approved a deal to sell its memory chip business to a group led by Bain Capital
Bain Capital
for US$18 billion, with financial backing by companies such as Apple, Dell
Dell
Technologies, Hoya Corporation, Kingston Technology, Seagate Technology, and SK Hynix.[57][58] On November 15, 2017, Hisense
Hisense
reached a deal to acquire 95% of Toshiba
Toshiba
Visual Solutions for US$113.6 million.[59] Later that month, the company announced that it would pull out of its long-standing sponsorships of the Japanese television programs Sazae-san, Nichiyo Gekijo, and the video screens topping out One Times Square in New York City. The company cited that the value of these placements were reduced by its exit from consumer-oriented lines of business.[60] Company president (successive management)[61][edit]
