1 MIN. DE LECTURA

TOKYO, March 28 (Reuters) - Japanese stocks rose to a two-week high on Monday thanks to a weaker yen, while Sharp Corp jumped on expectations it may finally sign a long-delayed takeover deal with its Taiwanese suitor.

The Nikkei gained 0.8 percent to 17,134.37, the highest closing level since March 14.

As March 31 is the business year-end for a majority of listed companies, the market was also underpinned by investor purchases of stocks before they go ex-dividend on Monday.

The broader Topix rose 1.2 percent to 1,381.85 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 gained 1.2 percent to 12,482.88. (Reporting by Ayai Tomisawa; Editing by Simon Cameron-Moore)
