Desperate for money to maintain a strategic distance from a conceivable delisting, Toshiba is considering the need to raise around 600 billion yen ($5.3 billion) by offering new shares in an third party allotment, a spokesman from the company said on Friday. The Japanese business giant received recommendations from several businesses for plans to raise funds through an open offering or outsider portion, and is investigating the choice of assigning shares for the most part to speculators abroad, the individual said.

Toshiba responded in a statement to the exchange by reiterating that “the company aimed to recover its financial base by closing the sale of Toshiba Memory by the end of March 2018, The company added it was considering several options, and that no decision had been made.”

Toshiba shares fell as much as 8 percent for every penny in early exchanging Tokyo before paring misfortunes to exchange down 4.5 percent for each penny at ¥299. An offer deal would weaken existing investors. At a general meeting in October, Toshiba’s leader Satoshi Tsunakawa affirmed the organization was drawing up emergency courses of action in the event that the offer of its chip division hit a snag. Such obstacles incorporate antitrust issues and legitimate activity from Western Digital, which has affirmed that the terms representing a chip fabricating joint between its SanDisk auxiliary and Toshiba give it a say in any deal.

“We, as a company, don’t think at all that we will fail to sell the memory business but the outlook for each country’s anti-monopoly law [decision] is unclear,” Masayoshi Hirata, Toshiba’s chief financial officer said. “We are carrying out studies just for a preparation in case we can’t sell the business by the end of next March.”

Toshiba revealed hearty second-quarter gains with a 76 percent jump in working profits driven by a solid execution from its memory chip unit. In the event that Toshiba neglects to bring the deal to a close in time, that could keep Toshiba with negative total assets for some time, putting pressure on the Tokyo Stock Exchange to delist the company.
