Japan Display says it has secured funding shortfall for $738 mln bailout deal

TOKYO, July 12 (Reuters) - Japan Display Inc said on Friday Chinese investment firm Harvest Group had formalized its decision to fill the shortfall to reach an 80 billion yen ($738 million) bailout deal, having secured a $100 million investment from a JDI customer.

A source has said that client was Apple Inc, which accounted for 60.6% of the smartphone screen maker's revenue in the last financial year ended March.

JDI said it would hold an extraordinary shareholders meeting on Aug. 29 after securing the additional funding.
