TOKYO -- Major Toshiba shareholder 3D Investment Partners will not support the industrial group's plans to split into three independent companies, the Singapore-based asset manager said Wednesday, citing an inadequate review process leading up to the decision.

Toshiba's strategic review committee "did not objectively consider a full range of alternatives," 3D Investment said in an open letter to Toshiba's board.
