Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics formed a partnership after Foxconn's Sharp halted its LCD supplies to the Galaxy S9 maker two years ago. However, the first ever partnership between the crosstown rivals appears to be experiencing a problem. The Investor learned from industry sources earlier this week that LG Display's planned LCD supply to Samsung has been delayed for more than a year.

Sources said LG and Samsung have yet to reach a final decision on supply volume and price because of the volatilities in the present market.
In September, our attention turns from the multiplex to the small screen. But while Luke Cage's tale of reluctant heroism is made possible by a partnership between Marvel and Netflix, it's not the only property based on some stunning corporate synergy. The TV miniverse is a joint product of DC Comics (which created the comics the shows are based on), Warner Bros.

But under their partnership agreement, drawn up without an attorney, dividing the company's assets would have weakened it financially.
