The firm said it will sell its entire 40 pct stake in Chinese CRT glass joint venture Shanghai Asahi Electronic Glass Co to a Chinese partner, SVA Electron Co, by the end of March, for an undisclosed sum. The company said the transaction will result in a loss of 10 bln yen.

Asahi Glass also said it will book special loss of 40 bln yen to write down the impaired value of goodwill for a flat-glass subsidiary in North America.
