Sony agrees to $68 million deal to sell more of its company buildings in Tokyo

Sony agreed a deal to sell two company buildings in Tokyo for $156 million earlier this month, and now the Japanese firm is cashing in again after announcing the 7 billion yen ($68 million) sale of more real estate in the city: Building 5 and its premises at 22-6, Higashigotanda 2 cho-me, Shinagawa-ku.

Real estate firm Sumitomo Realty & Development is the buyer in both cases — Sony expects to pocket 5 billion yen ($49 million) after deductions from the sale, which it anticipates will close next month.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The Japanese firm announced a major reorganization in February, selling its Vaio laptop business, spinning out its TV division and laying off 5,000 employees, but its cost cutting initiatives are continuing.
