Toshiba asks again to extend deadline for third-quarter earnings filing

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Toshiba Corp (6502.T) said it has asked financial regulators to extend its Tuesday deadline for submitting official third-quarter earnings until April 11.

    Toshiba also said in a statement that its auditing committee had confirmed that management at U.S. nuclear unit Westinghouse had inappropriately exerted pressure with regard to the calculation of the acquisition price of the CB&I unit.

    It would be the second extension after Toshiba postponed its earnings filing a month ago to probe potential problems at Westinghouse. It has flagged a $6.3 billion writedown for the nuclear unit in preliminary estimates.
