Kazuo Hirai

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. Thank you very much for attending today's conference. Taking time out of your busy schedule. Before talking about the corporate strategy, let me say that two days ago we announced the downward revision to our earnings forecast and we are now forecasting a net loss of 520 billion yen for fiscal 2011. The news hit me hard and as CEO I take it very seriously. But at the same time, it strengthened my resolve to transform Sony. Now it’s the time for Sony to change. Since I was nominated President and CEO in February, I have received laurels of encouragement from investors, analysts, the press and other stake holders. They want Sony to change and to support Sony's process of change in transformation. So do the employees. They want to restore Sony to its former glory and go further beyond. Sony will change. I have fully dedicated myself to changing Sony. Everyone at Sony is standing together to make this happen and as a result, Sony will change. Today's corporate strategy meeting is organized too share with you how we will change and what we will do to achieve this.
