Japan's Toshiba to boost stake in US nuclear power giant Westinghouse

TOKYO -- Japan's Toshiba said Wednesday it will boost its stake in U.S. atomic power-plant giant Westinghouse Electric as it eyes overseas deals after domestic demand fell away following last year's Fukushima disaster.

The firm said it would pay 125 billion yen (US$1.6 billion) for the 20-percent stake in Westinghouse owned by U.S.-based Shaw Group, lifting its holding to 87 percent.

It said the purchase would be financed through "immediately available cash and/or loans."
