How WD installed a circuit breaker in its SanDisk deal

It not only gets SanDisk, but NAND flash maker Toshiba though its existing partnership

Tsinghua Holdings, the parent company of WD's prospective partner Unispelendor, also made an informal bid of $23 billion for Micron Technology in July through another subsidiary, called Tsinghua Unigroup.

SanDisk has also had a joint NAND flash developer agreement with leading flash maker Toshiba; SanDisk has been the minority stakeholder in that partnership, Handy said. WD said that joint venture is expected to continue under its ownership.

Now that WD has a prospective partner in Unispelendor and a NAND flash memory maker in SanDisk and Toshiba, it can also address the massive Chinese market.
