TORONTO—Brookfield Asset Management’s Brookfield Business Partners unit said Thursday that it would acquire Westinghouse Electric Co., the nuclear power business that filed for Chapter 11 protection last March 29. The $4.6-billion acquisition from Toshiba is expected to be funded with a combination of $1 billion in equity, a portion of which may later be syndicated; approximately $3 billion of long-term debt financing; and the assumption of certain pension, environmental and other operating obligations.
