Toshiba, Fujitsu, Vaio in Talks to merge their PC businesses

Toshiba, Fujitsu, Vaio in Talks to merge their PC businessesToshiba, Fujitsu and Sony spinoff Vaio are reportedly considering integrating their personal computer operations, a move that would create a top player in the Japanese market.

Nikkeis reports that the three companies will soon begin negotiating the specifics, aiming to hatch a basic agreement as early as this month and launch the combined company in April 2016. The merged company would surpass the currently top-ranked NEC Lenovo Japan Group, which has a 26.3% share of the market.

The plan is to thoroughly integrate domestic and overseas operations, from research and development to production and sales. the report added.

Toshiba's Dynabook line remains the core of its operations. Fujitsu boasts its consumer-oriented FMV line of PCs, as well as an array of tablets.

Fujitsu had already announced in late October that it would split off its PC operations in spring of 2016.
