Toshiba announces 7,000 job cuts

Due to restructuring costs, Toshiba expected to sell its television manufacturing plant in Indonesia and job cuts will be 10000 including the previously announced cuts and those seeking voluntary retirement. Toshiba expected a net loss of around 550 billion yen ($4.53 billion) in this fiscal year ending in March.
