Adjusting for the spin that a Sony rep. is likely to put on the facts, this is my interpretation:

Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation designs some sensors "on spec" for sale to all comers, like the ones listed at  However it also collaborates with some large customers to design and produce sensors that are exclusive to that customer, either permanently or for a period of exclusivity.  Nikon and Sony have partnered like this a number of times going back to the CCD era; more recently this has been done with Sony Imaging, Phase One, and Fujifilm (the last only customizing CFAs and micro-lenses, not the electronic part).
