Taipei, March 24 (CNA) Taiwan-based Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. (鴻海) wants to participate in the management of Sharp Corp. if it is to invest in the struggling Japanese electronics maker, Hon Hai Chairman Terry Gou said in a report in Toyo Keizai.
In an interview published in the Japanese weekly Friday, Gou said Hon Hai is ready to support Sharp financially, but the support is contingent on being able to join in the Japanese company’s management.
Gou said he has not met with Sharp President Kozo Takahashi in a year, but if the Sharp executive wanted to see him, he would be able to fly to Japan at any time. [FULL STORY]
