    No, you shouldn't use the third-person plural verb when more than one person is performing the action.

    IE "Fred and Jim announce a partnership" is correct.

    Also if you put the word "together" right after the names it means "A and B announce the partnership AT THE SAME TIME" - really emphasising "at the same time"

    Usually such a sentence would read "Fred and Jim announce a partnership together" - unless you want the aforementioned emphasis.
