Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) stock encountered a rapid change of -1.76% in the last hour of Friday’s trading session. The stock settled the final trade on $197.18. A Chinese-Taiwanese group is delaying an up to 80 billion yen ($729.33 million) investment planned as part of a rescue deal for Apple Inc supplier Japan Display as it wants to reassess the target’s prospects, the Japanese firm said.
A prolonged delay could put at risk the survival of the cash-strapped smartphone screen maker, which has been hit by Apple’s slowing iPhone sales and a late shift to organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens.
The buyer group, which includes Taiwanese flat screen maker TPK Holding and Chinese investment firm Harvest Group, had planned to formalise the investment decisions by mid-June.
The bailout deal, declared a month ago, would allow the buyers to become Japan Display’s biggest shareholders with a 49.8 percent stake, replacing the Japanese government-backed INCJ fund.
But the group has informed the company that they will make such decisions “after re-examining the prospects for Japan Display’s business performance”, the company said on Monday, adding there was no time frame for the review.
TPK and Harvest did not right away respond to emailed requests for comment.
A source familiar with the matter said that Japan Display’s financial situation has changed since the deal was agreed, prompting the group to reassess the business. The source declined to elaborate on the change in the situation. (Source: Reuters)
