Japanese display giant Sharp will gobble NEC's display business in a push to expand into North America and Europe.
Under the terms of the deal, Sharp will acquire two-thirds of NEC Display Solutions (NDS) and form a joint venture to take the two companies' products to market.

Sharp makes sensors and camera modules, as well as some panels for Apple's iPhones. The Osaka-based firm was bought by Foxconn owner, Honn Hai, in 2016 for $3.8bn after years of heavy losses. read more here
