$2.5bn rescue plan would involve Solar Frontier

OSAKA -- A public-private fund is mulling a plan to integrate Sharp's photovoltaic business and a solar subsidiary of Showa Shell Sekiyu as part of its efforts to rescue the embattled Japanese electronics maker, sources told The Nikkei.

     The fund, the Innovation Network Corp. of Japan, plans to inject capital into Sharp in a broader attempt to consolidate the country's electronics sector and help revive the once-mighty liquid crystal display maker.
