As a result of the purchase, Hon Hai Precision Industry will assume all Sharp debts , the total amount of which currently stands at about $ 6.3 billion.

A forthcoming transaction involves the purchase of total business, especially Taiwanese company is interested in technology of  LCD screens.

According to informed sources, the Japanese  are very concerned about the impending deal because  of one of the largest and most influential companies in the country for the production of electronics will be under the foreign control.

Sharp tried to avoid the sale of its business through a corporation of industrial innovation, but because of the fact that the company has billions of dollars in debt, none of the investors did not dare to invest in such a business. To date, the Taiwanese competitors’ proposal is one of the most profitable for Sharp, according to experts, this is the only way to write off debts.
