Samsung will pay Sony 1.08 trillion won ($939m; £600m) in cash for Sony’s entire stake (50% – 1 shares) in S-LCD Corp., a venture formed in 2004 to make TV panels. After acquisition, Samsung Electronics’ stake in S-LCD will be 100%.

The move comes as Sony has been restructuring its TV business, which has been making a loss for the past seven years."
