NEW TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan -- Chairman Terry Gou of key iPhone assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn Technology Group, told the Nikkei Asian Review on Saturday that he was still keen to acquire the memory chip business of embattled Japanese conglomerate Toshiba, but warned he would withdraw his offer if the bidding process dragged on for too long.

"I am offering to help [Toshiba]," Gou told the Nikkei Asian Review in an exclusive interview at his family graveyard in the Taipei suburbs. He was there to pay his respects to a deceased family member.
