SAN FRANCISCO—After earlier turning down an opportunity to invest in Japanese DRAM vendor Elipda Memory Inc., Toshiba Corp. has apparently decided to join the bidding for the bankrupt firm, according to English language news service reports quoting Japan's Nikkei news service.
According to a report by the Reuters news service, the Nikkei reported that Toshiba could seek financial assistance from the government-backed Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corp of Japan.
Elpida reportedly is soliciting bids from potential investors in an effort to pull itself out of bankruptcy protection. Micron Technology Inc. is rumored to have already made a bid for Elpida, but the company declined to comment on the rumor.
