Mitsubishi will provide the lifeline through a private placement of new preferred shares and loans.

Stocks impacted: Mitsubishi Corp (MSBHY), Chiyoda Corp (CHYCF)

In this effort, the two companies are betting on a turnaround fueled by greater LNG demand. As a reminder, Chiyoda faced problems after a hurricane hit its Cameron LNG project in Louisiana. Mitsubishi has bailed out Chiyoda twice already and has a 33.4 percent stake in the company. It will provide the lifeline through a private placement of new preferred shares and loans. MUFG Bank, which is a part of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, will provide additional financing. The talks are ongoing and the final had not been made yet.
