    Bankers and lawyers prepare for spate of company rescues as coronavirus bites

    Law firms and banks are scrambling to retrain senior staff in restructuring so they can help dozens of companies looking to raise emergency funds and rearrange debts as the coronavirus pandemic eats into corporate cash. Lawyers and bankers said companies mainly in the transport, travel and retail sectors had made the first approaches but in the next few months there could be a far wider range of firms as lockdowns and social distancing measures hit economies hard. "It has been pretty much non-stop," said a partner at a major U.S. law firm, who has been on calls all day since Friday and had four deals closing on Monday alone.

    Nikkei slides as virus anxiety offsets boost from softer yen

    Japanese shares ended lower on Friday as mounting coronavirus cases in China and other Asian countries eclipsed the boost from a weaker yen, with many investors closing their positions ahead of a long weekend. On the week, the Nikkei was down 1.27% and the Topix fell 1.70%.

    Nikkei little changed as virus fears counter boost from softer yen

    Japanese shares were little changed on Friday as mounting coronavirus cases in China and other Asian countries offset the boost from a weaker yen ahead of a long weekend. The outbreak has already disrupted economic growth in China and a further spread to other countries could derail a "highly fragile" projected recovery in the global economy in 2020, the International Monetary Fund warned on Wednesday. The epidemic that originated in China appears to be quickly spreading to surrounding countries such as Japan and South Korea, even though recent tallies from China have raised hopes of some stabilisation there.

    Nikkei slips on coronavirus concerns, weak corporate earnings

    The death toll from the coronavirus rose over the weekend, passing the total killed by the SARS epidemic. Rakuten dropped 1.5% as Japanese antitrust officials raided the offices of the e-commerce company after complaints from online merchants about the company's free shipping policies.

    Nikkei eases on virus concerns, weak corporate earnings

    Japanese shares slipped on Monday, as fears about the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in China and weak earning results outweighed any boost from a strong U.S. employment data. It now stands at 908 in mainland China, where there are a total of 40,171 infections.

    Nikkei closes at 1-month high as hopes of global demand boost exporters

    Japan's benchmark share index on Friday marked its highest close in a month, after touching a 15-month peak earlier in the session, as hopes for a rebound in global demand and a softer yen drove broad-based gains. The Nikkei 225 Index closed 0.45% firmer at 24,041.26.

    UPDATE 4-In bid to repair ties, Japan and S.Korea agree to summit next month

    Japan and South Korea agreed on Saturday to hold formal talks next month, taking a step towards improving relations strained by decades of bitterness over their wartime past and now exacerbated by a simmering trade dispute. The decision to return to the table came a day after Seoul made a last-minute move to stick to an intelligence-sharing deal with Japan. Seoul on Saturday hailed its own move as a "breakthrough" after months of worsening relations.

    EXPLAINER-History, islets and rulings behind tension between S.Korea and Japan

    The animosity between Japan and South Korea is entwined with the history of Japan's 1910-45 occupation of the Korean peninsula, the mobilisation of forced labour at companies, of women in wartime brothels, and a row over the ownership of islets in the sea between the two nations. On Friday, South Korea said it would not suspend its intelligence-sharing deal with Japan, in a last-minute reversal that signalled a breakthrough in relations. Last year, South Korea's Supreme Court ordered Japan's Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to compensate some wartime forced labourers.

    RPT-GRAPHIC-Weak demand offsets fall in iron ore prices for steelmakers

    Steelmakers' margins are due to deteriorate in coming quarters despite a fall in the price of raw material iron ore because steel prices have also slumped, pressured by weak demand. "Even with the correction that we saw in iron ore, steel prices have fallen in just about every market, in Europe, the U.S. and China," said analyst Serafino Capoferri at Macquarie in London. Benchmark spot iron ore for delivery to China hit a five-year high of $126.50 a tonne on July 3, having surged 74% over six months due to reduced supply from top exporters Australia and Brazil.

    UPDATE 5-S.Korea steps up effort to get U.S. help in export row with Japan

    South Korea has warned the United States of the potential damage from "undesirable" Japanese restrictions on exports of high-tech material to South Korea, as a trade row between the East Asian U.S. allies intensifies. As South Korea sought U.S. help in the dispute, triggered by disagreement over the issue of compensation for South Koreans forced to work for Japanese firms during World War Two, it also took steps to limit the damage to its companies.

    UPDATE 2-Japan curbs could drag on, hurt global economy -Moon

    Japan's export curbs on key materials used by South Korean tech companies could drag on despite diplomatic efforts to end the dispute, South Korea's president said on Wednesday, pledging to help firms to reduce their reliance on Japanese suppliers. Japan tightened restrictions last week on exports of three materials used in smartphone displays and chips, citing a dispute with Seoul over South Koreans forced to work for Japanese firms during World War Two.

    CORRECTED-UPDATE 2-Japan rebuffs Seoul's calls to scrap export curbs

    TOKYO/SEOUL, July 9 (Reuters) - Japan pushed back on Tuesday against calls from South Korea to scrap curbs on some high-tech exports, ratcheting up tension in a decades-old diplomatic dispute that threatens to disrupt the global supply of memory chips and smartphones. Tokyo said last week it would tighten restrictions on exports of three materials used in smartphone displays and chips, citing a dispute with Seoul over South Koreans forced to work for Japanese firms during World War Two.

    UPDATE 1-Japan denies imposing South Korean trade embargo at WTO

    Japan denied imposing a trade embargo on South Korea on Tuesday, after a complicated diplomatic dispute that could disrupt global supplies of chips and smartphones erupted over forced labour in World War Two and banned trade with North Korea. South Korean Ambassador Paik Ji-ah raised the issue in Geneva, where she and her Japanese counterpart Junichi Ihara set out competing arguments at a meeting of the World Trade Organization. Paik said that starting on July 4, Tokyo had told exporters to apply for licences before shipping to South Korea, according to a Geneva-based trade official who attended the meeting.

    UPDATE 6-Japan, South Korea raise stakes in dispute over forced labour

    TOKYO/SEOUL, July 9 (Reuters) - Japan and South Korea raised the stakes on Tuesday in a dispute that threatens to disrupt global supplies of smartphones and chips, with South Korea denouncing Japanese reports it had transferred a sensitive chemical to North Korea. It worsened last week when Japan said it would tighten curbs on exports of three materials crucial for advanced consumer electronics because trust with South Korea had been broken over the forced labour dispute.

    EXPLAINER-The high-tech trade dispute rooted in Japan's wartime history

    TOKYO/SEOUL, July 8 (Reuters) - Japan has tightened curbs on exports of high-tech materials used in smartphone displays and chips to South Korea, upping the ante in a decades-old dispute with Seoul over South Koreans forced to work for Japanese firms during World War Two. The export curbs highlight how Japan, the world's third-largest economy, continues to hold sway over a vital corner of the global supply chain. It remains a major player in specialised chip components, even though it was overtaken as a chipmaker years ago by South Korea.

    UPDATE 5-Japan to tighten tech material exports to S.Korea in wartime labour row

    TOKYO/SEOUL, July 1 (Reuters) - Japan will tighten curbs on exports of high-tech materials used in smartphone displays and chips to South Korea amid a growing dispute over South Koreans forced to work for Japanese firms during World War Two, the industry ministry said on Monday, prompting condemnation from Seoul. Tighter export controls, to become effective on Thursday, would slow the export process by several months, hitting South Korean tech giants, such as Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix and LG Display. The step comes amid Tokyo's growing frustration at what it calls a lack of action by Seoul over issues stemming from its top court ruling last October that ordered Nippon Steel to compensate former forced labourers.
