The companies have now carried out all necessary procedures and today completed the transfer.

As previously announced, Fujitsu's HDD-related business and functions will be transferred to a new company, Toshiba Storage Device Corporation (TSDC). Toshiba has acquired a stake of approximately 80 percent in TSDC and made it a Toshiba Group subsidiary.
