By the end of the 1990s, Toshiba Corporation was finding it difficult to maintain its leadership position in the arena of PCs, laptops and dynamic random access memory, due to fierce competition from Dell, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), Hewlett Packard (HP), and scores of others. The ongoing recession in the Japanese economy and reduced consumer spending also added to its woes. Toshiba now looks set to regain its lost advantage through its fine-tuned restructuring strategies.
