A Toshiba spokeswoman declined to comment beyond the company's Sept. 30 statement that it had received written indications of interest from potential partners for strategic alternatives. Toshiba shares ended 7.4% higher at 5,512 yen after rising by as much as 9.4% earlier. Dow Jones & Co. owns Factiva. (
