The Nikkei Asian Review late yesterday reported that Western Digital (WDC) CEO Steve Milligan has said his company will offer funds to “bail out” Toshiba (6502JP), which has put on sale the NAND flash memory business that the two companies run jointly, citing a letter sent to the publication. The article quotes Milligan as saying Western is a partner and “supporter” of Toshiba, and that Western finds it “difficult to watch this great company go through this period of profound financial and strategic challenges." "We believe that due to the trust we have built and the challenges we have jointly overcome,” said Milligan, "we can drive the innovation agenda in semiconductors, and face the uncertainties of the evolving geopolitical and macroeconomic landscape from a position of strength, together." Toshiba shares rose almost 4% in Tokyo trading to 216 Japanese Yen.
