The deal is one both companies agree with. Sharp has been experiencing mounting losses leading to a change in the company's credit rating. The Japanese company was searching for a partner to help it stabilize and restructure. It would appear they have found such a partner in the South Korean Samsung.

The partnership appears to be favorable to Sharp, as the company not only receives needed funds it receives a potential consumer. Samsung can consume Sharp's products which may help improve production for the struggling company.

With this new deal in place, Samsung will become the fifth-largest shareholder in Sharp. Several Japanese institutions remain ahead of the South Korean electronics manufacturer.
