TOKYO Toshiba Corp's operating profit for the April-September period is set to come to more than 100 billion yen ($1.2 billion), beating the company's forecast of 70 billion yen, the Nikkei business daily said on Wednesday.

Toshiba made 2.6 billion yen in operating profit in the same period last year, the Nikkei said.
