TSE lifts halt on trading in DDI shares.

TOKYO, Sept. 21 Kyodo

The Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) said Tuesday it will lift a freeze on trading in the shares of DDI Corp. at 10:40 a.m. after DDI announced it has not yet decided whether to merge with IDO Corp., a cellular phone company affiliated with Toyota Motor Corp.

The TSE had earlier Tuesday halted trading in the DDI shares to give investors time to confirm a report that the company is in final talks with IDO to merge next spring to become Japan's second largest telecom carrier.

DDI said in a statement, "We are studying how we should press ahead with our business in the future and nothing definite has been determined."

The reported merger would create a new carrier with consolidated revenue of 1.6 trillion yen, second only to that of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp.
