Sony Result 31/07/15

Sony saw Q1 net profit of ¥82.4 billion ($663 million), up from ¥26.8 billion ($216 million) a year earlier, on revenue which slipped just 0.1% and remained at around ¥1.8 trillion ($14.6 billion). The flat turnover was mainly due to a decrease in the Mobile Communications segment, reflecting a significant fall in smartphone sales, and smaller Home Entertainment & Sound earnings, reflecting reduced unit sales of mid-range LCD televisions.
