[TOKYO] Taiwan's Foxconn is working towards reducing its planned investment into loss-making Japanese electronics firm Sharp Corp by around 100 billion yen (S$1.22 billion) from an initial plan of 489 billion yen, two sources familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, is seeking to cut the offer to factor in future losses and a likely deterioration in Sharp's earnings in the financial year to March 31, the sources said.

Foxconn could not be immediately reached for comment.
