The facilities’ operations were handled by Nagasaki Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (NSM), a joint venture among Toshiba, Sony and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., but according to a press release issued by Toshiba, once the transfer is completed that NSM partnership will be terminated. NSM has been responsible for manufacturing semiconductors and system-on-a-chip for applications in Toshiba and Sony digital products.

The transfer is expected to be completed sometime early in the fiscal year ending March 2012.
