Hitachi To Sell 50% Of Its Stake In Construction Unit

TOKYO, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Japan's Hitachi Ltd said on Friday it plans to sell about half of its stake in Hitachi Construction to trading company Itochu (8001.T) in a sale worth about 182.4 billion yen ($1.60 billion).


Itochu will buy Hitachi's stake for 3,300 yen a share with Japan Industrial Partners. Hitachi currently owns a 51.5% stake in the construction company.


The sale would represent a final tranche of Hitachi's decade-long business portfolio overhaul, in which it sold chip-making equipment manufacturer Hitachi Kokusai Electric and chemicals maker Hitachi Chemical in recent years.


Hitachi Construction, the smaller rival of Komatsu Ltd (6301.T) and Caterpillar Inc (CAT.N), generated 813 billion yen in its last full business year from sales of excavators, wheel loaders, dump trucks and their parts.


It employs about 25,000 people worldwide with around three-quarters of sales outside Japan.
