Japan's Tepco in talks to sell data centre unit to Secom: Nikkei

TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) (9501.T) is in late-stage talks to sell a majority stake in its data centre business for around 50 billion yen ($634 million) to Secom Co (9735.T), Japan’s largest security firm, the Nikkei business daily reported on Tuesday.

    Tepco owns about 80 percent of At Tokyo, a subsidiary that runs a number of data centers around Tokyo, and is looking to keep around a 30 percent share of the company in the deal which is expected to be finished this month, the newspaper said.
