March 27, 2012

Sharp Corp. shares were bid at their daily limit in Tokyo after Foxconn Technology Group and founder Terry Gou agreed to invest 133 billion yen ($1.6 billion) in the TV maker and its display unit to secure flat panels.

The deal, announced after the stock markets closed yesterday, is the largest Japanese investment by a Taiwanese buyer and includes an agreement to purchase as much as 50 percent of Sharp Display Products Corp.’s LCD panels.
