Sony returns to black in Q3 on asset, product sales

Feb 7 (Reuters) - Sony Corp posted a third-quarter operating profit after a loss a year ago, supported by lower costs and proceeds from asset sales that are helping it offset weak demand for its TVs and other devices. In the three months to Dec. 31, Sony posted a 46.4 billion yen ($496 million) operating profit, compared with a 91.7 billion yen loss a year ago. (PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP)

ok i gone to neogaf and i saw that ps3/ps2 sold 6.8million
http://www.sony.net/SonyInf...

from my understanding...if i'm wrong some one correct me

IDC forecasted 77million ps3s,
this new report sony had what, 76 million ps3s? 1million less than the IDC report
(notice i took out 0.8million for ps2)

what MS xbox360 numbers ?! ..75.9million

ps3 76million
xbox360 75.9million

so they are tie or ps3 is indeed ahead

so i don't understand where did xbox guys come with ps3 is in 3rd place

again if i'm wrong on anything some one correct me

@Ezz2013...
Sony is no longer tracking ps2 sales. Going from what we know from the IDC report and Sony's q2 + q3 reports last year, it's 77 million.

ps3 q2 report.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
70.2 million (as of September 30th 2012)

70.2 + 6.8 = 77 Million

This falls exactly in line with the IDC prediction. Just like they were spot on with their Microsoft prediction 76 million (MS report 75.9). People made this same argument when Sony released their Q2 numbers. Then when the IDC report came out people said..."I didn't think it would happen that soon". IDC has been been accurate so far. I doubt they would risk their firms reputation stating "ps3 has overtaken xbox360" if they weren't 100% sure.

I think profits are down because of Vita sales and ps4 development. Vita is going to need a price cut. Guarantee you're going to be able to use your vita with your ps4 as a primary or secondary controller

Sony has done an incredible job learning from their mistakes.

I have very high hopes for the PS4. Judging by all the rumors the PS4 should be easy to work with, powerful, and more affordable at launch than the PS3 was.

I think they are on the right track to dominate the home console industry again.

Good_Guy_Jamal  +   435d ago
Finally. Just putting the facts in one place here so please mods, do not hurt me.
Q3 results for gaming divisions as per Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony reports:
Microsoft - $542.3 million in profit for Xbox business (Xbox 360)
Nintendo - $450 million in profit (DS, 3DS, Wii, WiiU)
SONY - $6 million in profit for the games business (PS2, PSP, PS3, PS VITA)
Profits all around. Yay.
Looks like whatever Microsoft is doing is working for them.

Footnote. I am well aware that EDD consists of more than just xbox business which is why I have deducted 9% off the total. Why 9% you ask? A report in 2012 showed that xbox business accounted for 99.1% of all EDD revenue in 2011. So I decided to be safe and make that 0.9% into 9%. The more accurate number would be $590.6 million but that would be unacceptable round these here parts so there you go.

Doesn't matter how much M$ profits. They don't give you anything anyways. They just take your money and ask you pay them some more. You'd think they would invest in some high quality studios to bring you something other than 11 Halo and Gears games. Instead they recycle their only 2 games, charge you to play online. Meanwhile Sony doesn't make much profit and yet they continue to innovate and bring what really matters in a console and that is GAMES!

I don't give a shit about how good an offshore company is doing. I strongly support american products. When Microsoft created the Xbox360, it was a game changer. Before the console, I remember we would have to wait a year or more before consoles even touched our soil, and then another year before we could play the games that were enjoyed by japanese gamers. Microsoft changed the game by releasing the console worldwide within just a few months. Sony followed, and it's been great for gamers ever since.

Guys I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it seems as if the operating profit is in fact 496 million, however the net income is a $115 million LOSS. In comparison, Nintendo posted a $450 million profit. Their gaming division was a $6 million profit which is very bad news, especially since this is for the holiday season. 6.8m PS3/PS2 were sold, last year .9 PS2's were sold during the same time this year so I think it's safe to say 6m+ PS3's shipped. I'll link article to the 115m net loss.

http://abcnews.go.com/Techn...

Edit - It is still somewhat good news though, considering last year they had a 158 billion Yen loss. Only 10.7 billion Yen loss this year and it doesn't include the 1.1B NY headquarters they sold.

Edit 2 - I believe the gaming division only had a $6 million profit because of the R&D for the PS4.

Riderz1337  +   435d ago
Yes I realize they are on track to make a profit, but I'm talking about what's happening now not what will happen in the future. Not to mention the fact that they will most likely post a profit due to the sale of some of their headquarters such as the one in NYC which sold for 1.1 billion dollars. I understand they are on track to making profits but I don't think we should be celebrating yet. Expect Sony stock to plummet tomorrow.
G20WLY  +   435d ago
^Riderz1337, you said "I'm talking about what's happening now not what will happen in the future"

No, you're not; you're talking about what HAS happened already, which is of less interest to any company than what is about to happen, based on past experience and current trend/trajectory. Forecast is far more important, especially to shareholders.

This article is about operating income and shareprice, not net income which is veering offtopic. In any company financials you can find figures that look good and figures that look bad, but mate, if you look a little closer, the glass is definitely half full! ;)
RememberThe357  +   435d ago
Thats weird. The source article states completely different numbers than your article.

ABCNews: "Sony on Thursday reported a 10.7 billion yen ($115 million) loss for the October-December quarter compared with a 158 billion yen loss a year earlier." (corroborated with other sources)

Reuters: "In the three months to Dec. 31, Sony posted a 46.4 billion yen ($496 million) operating profit, compared with a 91.7 billion yen loss a year ago."

Where the hell did Reuters get their numbers? Something is off here. Either there is some semantics going on that I don't recognize or someone has some false info.

Either way Sony is getting back to the black as they are much closer than they were a year ago. It looks like Kaz and his people are making the right moves even if they are the hard ones.

=====

EDIT: According to Sony's report ( http://www.sony.net/SonyInf... ) Reuters is reporting the Operating Income (46.4 billion yen) witch is what they made before taxes and interest. The other sources are reporting Net Loss (10.7 billion yen) and that is the real number after taxes and interest.

So operationally they are in the black ( where they want to be), but they need to increase that margin to make up for the taxes and other fees.

I was just going to tell you that operating profits are not the same as profits but it seems you got it already.

Yen plays a big part in all this. In essance they would have to hike the prices with every console shipped outside Japan but I bet that would stop the shipments entirely so they sell their consoles with MUCH less profit outside Japan. I bet they get next to no profit at all outside Japan because of the strong Yen. It counts for tens of millions of lost profits in dollars.

I think the new super slim brings in much more profits but I forgot when it was launched so I'm not sure how much it affected this period.

edit: Just so people know the upcoming profits next quarter that is due to sold HQ or something has nothing to do with operational profits. That gets taken off the balance sheet and is counted as random income or something along the lines. It gets added into income statement in the very end for the sole reason that it is clearly separated from operational numbers. I just thought to clear this up if someone was thinking about it.

Operational income is always a good news. All that is left is to axe the excess stuff from the balance sheet that keep the total income low or in the red. Pay off some of your debts Sony.

It seems Kaz knows what he is doing so I'm glad.

DiRtY  +   435d ago
LoL that is some cherry picking.

Again some facts I will get disagrees for:

- Sony lost money. The profit is an operating one. The net income is negative. 124 million USD loss.

- The Playstation division made a profit, but a VERY tiny one of 6 million USD. Compared to MS 600 million for the Xbox division or Nintendo 450 million USD.

- The PS3 is still in 3rd place. The IDC report, which was based on estimates was wrong. But that was expected from those who actually have a clue. Of course N4G users were not among those people.

- The PS Vita and the PSP sold 2.7 million COMBINED! In comparison, the Xbox 360 sold 6 million alone in the same timeframe in its 7th year. The Wii U, the console where everyone talks about the slow sales, sold 3 million on its own. And the PSP sold close to 300k just in Japan. So 2.0 million maybe 2.3 million for the Vita during the holidays is an educated guess.

- The progress Sony made was mainly driven by the weaker Yen.

So yeah, Sony might be on the right way, but they are still losing money. The gaming division is not the big money maker people on N4G tell you.

Just facts people.

darkride66  +   434d ago
It doesn't appear Sony's recent real estate transactions that made the news are included in this report. The figures on this report that deal with property barely budged from the same quarter last year.

And since when is selling assets "selling your shirt"? Company's like Sony sell assets all the time. They made millions off these transactions. I don't recall anyone complaining when Microsoft sold off their stake in MSNBC, or saying MS was "selling their shirt". Sony's corporate assets sit at a record $170 billion. Selling a building worth a billion, or even 2 buildings, and making money on it in the process is hardly "selling your shirt". It's reallocating resources back into the company.

Sony's sitting on the biggest cash position they've seen in damn near 20 years. They aren't cash starved despite what some in the media have claimed. Even a cursory search through financial figures shows that, although I can't remember the last time something like "backing up your claims with research" was important to a lot in the media. I'm not claiming for a second that Sony aren't going through one of the most difficult times in the company's history, but they're so far from "selling their shirt" it's not even funny.

If you sold your home because you can't pay your mortgage, that's one thing. If you capitalize on real estate prices and sold an investment property that accounted for a minuscule percentage of your overall assets, making millions in the process, and then took that capital and reinvested it back into your core business where it then has a chance to earn a greater return as part of an overall restructuring, isn't that an entirely different scenario?

Overall though, a $115 million net loss is a massive improvement over the $2.1 billion net loss they posted last year. And they're only midway through their restructuring efforts.

It's important to note that the PS brand remained profitable during thieir red phases... To sell more games Sony needs to change their marketing strategy... How, What, Where and When...? Key but simple priciples. Let's see gameplay, let's hear about your exclusive games. No point investing and making them if no one knows their coming out... The new Sly Cooper is a good example. No marketing what so ever.

They've consolidated the number of TVs on the market, and made good strides to minimise their product lines. Good start.

Maybe on Feb 20th Sony is going to announce they will no longer be able to continue in the home console business for next gen because of their current gaming division profit in Q3 of a devastating $6 million.....

Hard to imagine a company releasing a console when they just now started making a profit in the gaming department and it's only $6 million which is the PS2, PS3, PS Vita and PSP COMBINED.

If Sony does decide to release a PS4, how can anyone not see that they will take the MS route and start charging for a unified online gaming experience similar to XBL.

Frankly, you would have to be an ignorant flat-head to want Sony, MS or The big N to pull out of the console business.

It's a proven fact that without competition, an industry stagnates and the customer/consumer is the one that loses in the end. (with low quality, outdated hardware and games.)

I posted in the other story but Kaz needs to go for the throat and make some tough decisions.

To start, TV's and Vita have to go. Vita because there's no market for it (they've cut sales targets from 16 million to 12 million to 10 million to 7 million). It's in danger of being pulled from retailers imo. Regarding TV's, they can't compete with the Koreans in a commoditized market. If they MUST stay with TV's for some stupid reason then cut their offerings to the bone (maybe 4 or 5 models, all high end).

Of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet, I'm a power pack
Yes, I'm in a bang
With a gang
They've got to catch me if they want me to hang
Cause I'm back on the track
And I'm leadin' the pack
Nobody's gonna get me on another rap
So look at me now
I'm just makin' my play
Don't try to push your luck, just get out of my way

'Cause I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
(Well) I'm back in black
Yes, I'm back in black

Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
Well I'm back in black
Yes I'm back in black

Hooo yeah
Ohh yeah
Yes I am
Oooh yeah, yeah Oh yeah
Back in now
Well I'm back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back
Back in black
Yes I'm back in black

Even with a lackluster year in terms of titles and new hardware...they must be cutting corners in other places..
