Surrounding this news, 50 shareholders have also taken pitchforks to this giant company, requesting around $2.4 million in damages due to stock losses. With Toshiba's stock falling approximately 40 percent since the breaking announcement of this saga in April 2015, this accounting shambles is sending the company towards ruin in its current state.

The watchdog seems to be setting out to show Toshiba as an example towards other companies, strengthening its investigations due to Toshiba being such a large Japanese brand name and global company, aiming to make an example out of these illegal blunders.
