The only merger with Fuji was chip design and development that was spun off into a new company. In view of the fact that the GH3 has a Sony sensor, I think this could mean that Panasonic is getting out of camera sensor development.

According to a WSJ link that is only available to subscribers:

Amid another equally broad loss in the previous fiscal year, the company's financial standing has deteriorated significantly. The financial difficulties at Panasonic, whose gadgets came to symbolize Japanese manufacturing quality, are a telling sign of the problems gripping the country's electronics sector.

"The first thing we have to do under this business plan is get rid of the loss-making businesses," Mr. Tsuga said at a news conference.
