The company manufactures image sensors, PlayStation videogame consoles, mobile devices, consumer electronics, and mirrorless and professional cameras.

Matthews Japan Fund Comments on Sony - Jan 31, 2019

During the quarter, we also added Sony (NYSE:SNE). The company has gone through a substantial restructuring over the past decade, shifting its revenue away from consumer electronics, and toward recurring revenue businesses primarily in games and media. Sony's gaming platform PlayStation Plus boasts over 34 million paying members globally while its music publishing business, which recently added EMI Music Publishing, benefits from the proliferation of various music streaming offerings. As the proportion of recurring revenue business increases, we believe there is room for Sony to be rerated in line with other media companies, rather than as a consumer electronics company.

Mario Gabelli Comments on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. - Sep 14, 2018

Twenty-FirstCenturyFoxInc. (NASDAQ:FOXA) (3.5%)(FOXA/FOX–$49.69/$49.27–NASDAQ) is a diversified media company with operations in cable network television, television broadcasting, and filmed entertainment. FOX is in the process of selling the company’s cable, international, and entertainment assets to Disney for $72 billion or ~$38 per share. Following the transaction, FOXA will consist of Fox News and The Fox Broadcasting Company. The company’s concentration in live news and sports programming will be a significant advantage as it negotiates with both traditional and entrant distributors. Pro forma for the Disney transaction, FOXA is trading at 7.2x EBITDA, which we view as attractive.

Zeke Ashton Comments on Sony Corp - Jun 30, 2018

Finally, we purchased shares of Sony Corporation (NYSE:SNE) during the period, and have added to the investment subsequent to April 30th such that as of this writing Sony is a meaningful investment for the Fund. Sony has enjoyed a long and impressive business history, but the business had gradually lost momentum and relevance, particularly during the decade prior to 2012. However, in recent years Sony has mounted an impressive comeback driven by new management that has, in our view, done an effective job of re-focusing the sprawling conglomerate to emphasize those areas where it has the strongest advantages. Today, Sony’s major business units seem to be well-positioned in some of the more attractive growth markets we can identify. Sony is one of three companies (and the leader) in video gaming hardware and the surrounding ecosystem with its PlayStation business. Sony Music is one of three major players in a space that is benefitting dramatically from the digital migration of music, and Sony is also one of the top players in movies and TV production, where it has been showing strong improvement. There are a lot of other assets in place at Sony (too many to describe briefly), but suffice it to say that after doing our research, we came to the conclusion that Sony offers considerable value for a reasonable price. Based on our valuation efforts we think the stock is priced at roughly 10-11X the annualized average free cash flow generated by the core non-financial businesses. We think this valuation leaves plenty of opportunity for favorable returns if Sony continues to execute, and we also see potential for Sony to enact various corporate actions to better showcase the value of some of its unique assets over time, which could take the form of a spin-off or the sale of one or more of Sony’s business units.
