06:19 EDTTOSBFToshiba to take 60% share in NuGen Moorside Project in the UK
Toshiba announced that it has reached agreements with GDF SUEZ of France and Iberdrola of Spain to take a 60% stake in NuGeneration Limited, the UK-based nuclear energy company which plans to develop nuclear power plants at the Moorside site in West Cumbria, Northwest England. As the majority owner of NuGen, Toshiba, in collaboration with its group company, Westinghouse Electric Company, intends to move forward with the construction of three AP1000 nuclear reactors on the Moorside site, in partnership with GDF SUEZ, a leading European nuclear operator. Under an agreement with Iberdrola dated December 21, 2013, Toshiba will purchase all of Iberdrola’s indirect 50% holding in the project. Under a separate agreement reached in January 2014 with GDF SUEZ, Toshiba will purchase a further 10% holding in the project giving Toshiba a 60% stake in NuGen. The provisional total purchase price of 102 million pounds sterling is subject to adjustment, as is customary in such major transactions, while final agreements are subject to obtaining the relevant authorisations and consents and other required processes. Toshiba aims to complete the overall transaction within the first half of calendar year 2014. NuGen’s Moorside project focuses on the development of a new generation nuclear power station and represents a major investment in the future, and in supporting the UK to meet the challenges of securing a stable, affordable, future energy supply and cutting CO2 emissions. The three AP1000 units to be built on the site, developed by Westinghouse, will have a combined capacity of 3.4 gigawatts. Building on this major development, Toshiba and Westinghouse will seek further opportunities to build AP1000 reactors in Europe and other key geographies.

18:17 EDTTOSBFHP, Lenovo shares up fractionally following PC shipment data
Shares of HP (HPQ) and Lenovo (LNVGY) are up fractionally after second quarter PC shipment data was released by Gartner and IDC. WHAT'S NEW: After eight quarters of declining shipments, worldwide PC shipments experienced flat growth in the second quarter of 2014, according to preliminary results by Gartner (IT). Worldwide PC shipments totaled 75.8M units in the second quarter, a 0.1% increase from the second quarter of 2013. According to the International Data Corporation, or IDC, Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker, Worldwide PC shipments totaled 74.4M units in the second quarter of, a year-on-year decline of -1.7%.

WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to IDC, the U.S. market showed strong 6.9% year-on-year growth in the second quarter. Continuing upgrades of Windows XP systems boosted shipments in commercial portables and desktops, helping the commercial segment. At the same time, retail acceptance of emerging product categories such as Chromebooks and ultraslims helped the consumer segment to stabilize. HP continued to hold the lead and gained 2% market share while four of the top 5 vendors experienced double-digit growth for the quarter. Lenovo and Toshiba (TOSBF) took advantage of some consumer interest in Windows 8 and a push to build up their presence in large enterprises. According to Gartner, Lenovo extended its lead as the leader in worldwide PC shipments, as its worldwide market share increased to 19.2%. Lenovo’s PC shipments grew by double-digits in all regions except Asia/Pacific. Lenovo’s shipment growth in Asia/Pacific was still faster than the regional average.
