    China regulators start antitrust review of Toshiba chip unit sale - report

    TOKYO/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Chinese regulators have begun an antitrust review of Toshiba Corp's $18 billion deal to sell its memory chip unit, two months after the Bain Capital-led buying consortium applied for approval, the Nikkei business daily said on Friday. The embattled Japanese conglomerate has said it would like to see the deal close before the end of March, although that target date has been seen as overly optimistic after a long and contentious auction process delayed Toshiba's decision on the buyer. The Nikkei report said Chinese regulators started the review this month.
