TOKYO (Reuters) - SoftBank Group Corp (9984.T) said on Monday that its Japanese telecommunications unit, SoftBank Corp, had made a preliminary application to list its shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
The move was expected after the conglomerate said this year it was making preparations for a listing.
SoftBank Corp will remain a major consolidated subsidiary after listing, SoftBank Group said in a statement.
