As Sharp Corp. prepares to be taken over by Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., it is planning to develop household appliances jointly with its new partner and aims to have televisions ready for sale by the end of the year, an executive at the Japanese firm said Thursday.

Of all new products, the TVs will probably be ready fastest, Yoshisuke Hasegawa, an executive managing officer, told reporters. “We’re also thinking of producing the jointly developed products at Hon Hai’s factories.”
