The deal, led by private equity fund Japan Industrial Partners Inc., amounts to ¥2 trillion ($13.5 billion), making it Japan’s largest deal this year and ending Toshiba’s 74-year tenure as a listed company.

With the JIP-led consortium now owning 78.65% of Toshiba’s shares, the remaining shareholders will be squeezed out, allowing the domestic fund to take full control of the company.
