Top officials of Toshiba Corp. and its estranged U.S. business partner Western Digital Corp. are set for a fresh round of talks seeking a resolution to the row over the sale of Toshiba’s chip unit.

Mark Long, chief financial officer of Western Digital, and other executives will arrive in Japan next week to meet with Toshiba directors for the talks over the unit, Toshiba Memory, according to sources.

The officials are expected to seek a solution to the legal dispute over the sale of the unit. The two companies jointly produce chips in Yokkaichi, Mie Prefecture. Toshiba wants to sell its stake to cover losses.

Western Digital filed an injunction at the International Court of Arbitration on May 14 to stop Toshiba from selling the unit without its consent. The U.S. company contends that such a move would break its business contract with Toshiba.

The U.S. executives may also meet with officials at other Japanese entities, including the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the government-affiliated fund, the Innovation Network Corp. of Japan, the sources said. INCJ is one of the suitors in the sale of Toshiba Memory.

Long’s visit to Japan follows that of Western Digital CEO Steve Milligan earlier this month, who met with Toshiba President Satoshi Tsunakawa.

At the meeting, Milligan reportedly indicated that Western Digital is seeking to take control of the chip unit.

Toshiba needs to sell the promising chip unit to cover liabilities exceeding assets by 540 billion yen ($4.85 billion) as of fiscal 2016, which ended in March, largely resulting from losses by its U.S. nuclear power unit, Westinghouse Electric Co.
