If you define nage solely as kake (execution) then I definitely breathe out but before the attack breathe in to concentrate energy and in preparation for kiai. On completion of technique (nage) and accepting ukemi I am still in an exhalation phase - I can't see how uke can inhale when performing ukemi, certainly if nage has responded with speed and energy.
