Sony Corporation (ADR) Research Report

On October 31, 2013, Sony Corporation (ADR) (Sony) announced its Q2 FY 2013
financial results (period ended September 30, 2013). The Company's sales and
operating revenue increased 10.6% YoY to ¥1,775.5 billion ($18.1 billion)

the favorable impact of foreign exchange rates and a significant increase in
smartphones' sales, but partially offset by the absence of sales from the
chemical products related business which was sold in September 2012, as well
as a decrease in sales of video cameras and compact digital cameras. Net loss
attributable to Sony's stockholders was ¥19.3 billion ($197 million) or ¥18.91
($0.19) per diluted share in Q2 FY 2013, compared to ¥15.5 billion or ¥15.41
per diluted share in Q2 FY 2012. For full-year FY 2013 (period ending March
31, 2014), the Company revised its guidance and now anticipates sales and
