Japan’s Hitachi Ltd. announced that it has reached an agreement with the Lithuanian government to build a nuclear power plant there by 2020-2022. A final agreement will be concluded possibly this summer after parliamentary approval in Lithuania.
Hitachi said Friday that it will apply for voluntary delisting of its shares from the New York Stock Exchange next month, in an effort to cut costs.
