TOKYO — Toshiba Corp Board

Chairman Osamu Nagayama on Friday pledged to be “an agent of

positive change, not a protector of the status quo,” in a letter

to shareholders ahead of the conglomerate’s annual general

meeting next week.

“As the chairperson my priority is to provide Toshiba with

the governance and leadership that you deserve,” he said.
