Reuters reports the company is selling the shares to Nomura Securities. The income from the sale will be posted in Sony's fourth quarter financials.
This all ties into Sony's announcement in February that it would end its fiscal year in March with an operating profit, which was quite the surprise given the state of the company. Sony has recently experienced billion-dollar cash infusions through the sale of its Sony City Osaki and its New York HQ buildings.
