Here is my best explanation:

'partly coincide' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'regards circuit' is the wordplay.
'regards' becomes 'over' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'circuit' becomes 'lap' ('lap' can be a synonym of 'circuit').
'over'+'lap'='OVERLAP'

'as' acts as a link.
