WDC – Using the Toshiba JV to Improve Profits – Single User


WDC and Kioxia/Toshiba split their joint-venture fab’s output nearly 50/50, but contract provisions allow WDC to manage its profits better.  This three-page Brief graphically illustrates how WDC uses that to its advantage.  This is a single-user license.

The output of WDC’s and Toshiba’s joint-venture NAND flash fab is split nearly 50/50, but WDC isn’t compelled to take its entire half of the output. This Objective Analysis Brief (written before Toshiba Memory had adopted the Kioxia name) examines how WDC has used that to its advantage during downturns, at the expense of its partner.

This three-page Brief illustrates how the JV works to WDC’s decided advantage by using two graphs of both companies’ financials.

The single-user license allows one electronic copy to be stored on a PC, and up to three print copies to be circulated within a single department.
