SK Hynix says will bid for Toshiba's memory chip business as part of a consortium

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea’s SK Hynix Inc (000660.KS) said on Friday it will submit a final bid for Toshiba Corp’s (6502.T) memory chip business as part of a consortium.

    The company did not say what other companies were in the consortium.

    People familiar with the matter told Reuters earlier on Friday SK Hynix will be part of a consortium led by U.S. buyout firm Bain Capital LP, which seeks to buy a majority stake in the Toshiba chip business, offering around 1.5 trillion yen ($13.49 billion).
