The initiatives I laid out and that are being implemented speedily across the Sony Group will help us meet-and exceed-the expectations our stakeholders have for Sony. Rebuilding our electronics business will involve difficult decisions, but we will neither shy away nor waste time. Sony´s spirit of innovation has enabled us to create new technology and experiences, and to help create an exciting future for people everywhere. Everyone at Sony recognizes the importance of this spirit at this critical point in our history. We stand together in our belief that Sony will change.
On behalf of the management and employees of Sony, I thank you, our stakeholders, for your continued support.
