Toshiba shares plunged to their lowest level in nearly seven years on Tuesday after it warned of a $4.5 billion annual loss and layoffs tied to an embarrassing profit-padding scandal, dragging Tokyo’s benchmark stock index lower.

The Nikkei 225 at the Tokyo Stock Exchange fell 0.16 percent, or 29.32 points, to close at 18,886.70. The broader Topix index of all first-section shares ticked up 0.15 percent, or 2.32 points, to 1,533.60.
