(Reuters) – Japan’s Panasonic Corp (6752.T) will sell its loss-making semiconductor business to Taiwan’s Nuvoton Technology, a Nikkei Asian Review reported on Thursday.

Panasonic will also divest three Japanese chipmaking facilities of TowerJazz Panasonic Semiconductor, a joint venture with Israel’s Tower Semiconductor, according to the report. s.nikkei.com/35JxTeT

The ongoing U.S.-China tariff war has impacted chipmakers already grappling with oversupply.

Panasonic did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
