As for the figures, Sony raked in $458 million in net profit for the year on $72.35 billion of revenue during the 12-month period. Sony originally predicted a net profit of $404 million, so the company certainly did better than they expected at first. It certainly beats a $5.7 billion loss the previous year.
Sony reported lower sales of several different product categories, including compact cameras, LCD televisions, and PlayStation gaming consoles. The PlayStation department brought in only $18 million of operating profit for the company, while compact cameras brought in $15 million. TVs also saw a loss at $897 million.
However, Sony raked in $509 million of profit in their movie division, which was one of their most profitable categories for the year. Overall, Sony’s year-over-year revenue was boosted up 4.7%, and the company expects to turn a profit of over $500 million for this current fiscal year, as well as selling 42 million phones during the next 12 months.
