Sony has not been spared in recent years. The disappointing sales of branded products and the crisis put him in a difficult situation. The arrival of Kaz Hirai to lead the group in May 2012 has not yet be successful, and the company has yet to make savings to refloat the vessel. Today, the company indicates that it is in real estate that will pick up a bit of money.
Indeed, the Japanese company announced the sale of its U.S. headquarters. Located in the heart of Manhattan, the HQ is ideally placed and the company has placed its selling price to $ 1.1 billion. A large sum that could be good at Japanese giant.
Just like Nokia, Sony wants to sell its headquarters without abandon. In fact, the company hopes, once the sale is done, will continue to occupy it as a tenant. If the sale set at $ 1.1 billion led, Sony will still pay taxes and repay its debt following the purchase of the building. So Sony could make a tidy sum of $ 770 million. A strategy for better rebound after dismal years.
