    • Toshiba (OTCPK:TOSBF) is moving forward with the restructuring of its PC business, cutting 900 jobs and exiting its business-to-consumer operations in some regions.
    • The Japanese conglomerate expects the restructuring to slash operating profit by ¥45B ($414M), but did not change its earnings forecast for the current year to March, as better-than-expected earnings in electricity and other operations offset the impact.
    • Toshiba will also cut fixed costs by more than ¥20B vs. the previous fiscal year and reduce the number of sales bases around the world to 13 from 32.

    • The U.S. has charged five Chinese military officers for hacking into American nuclear, metal and solar companies to steal trade secrets.
    • Companies that the suspects targeted include Alcoa (AA), Allegheny Technologies (ATI), United States Steel (X), Toshiba (TOSBF) unit Westinghouse Electric, the U.S. operations of SolarWorld (SRWRD), and a steel workers' union.
    • Officials said the firms suffered "significant" losses, although they declined to provide details.
    • Alcoa said that to its knowledge, "no material information was compromised."
    • The U.S. probably won't be able to prosecute the officers, as China is unlikely to hand them over.
    • The charges come amid long-running tension between the U.S. and China over cyber-espionage. Documents leaked by Edward Snowden show that the U.S. has tampered with Cisco-made equipment that was for sales overseas.

    An international research team that includes Nokia (NOK), Toshiba and university scientists are set to introduce a breakthrough quantum chip at the British Science Festival, which starts tomorrow. The chip will facilitate mobile phones that are far more secure and ultra-fast computers. The component is made from silicon and works on light: in theory, 100 photons could solve trillions of equations simultaneously.

    Toshiba (TOSYY.PK) is planning to sell a 16% stake in U.S. nuclear power-plant company Westinghouse Electric as it looks to prioritize its nuclear business in emerging markets. In October 2006, Toshiba paid about $4.2B for 77% of the company, and is looking to sell a piece to nuclear technology companies that have strong ties to emerging markets. A U.S.-based firm is reportedly among the preferred buyers.
