Sony forges ahead -- and leaves hard numbers behind

New CEO Yoshida sees 'excitement' as key to company's future

TOKYO -- Sony Group appears poised at long last to resolve the main management challenge it has faced for the past 20 years: how to combine its wide-ranging "software" operations -- music, movies, finance -- with its former flagship electronics business. Similar issues vex conglomerates around the world.

Sony Chairman and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida made his first public remarks since the company added "Group" to the Sony name in April in an online briefing on May 26. The event attracted a great deal of attention from market participants and business partners, as he discussed Sony's plans for next three years.
