Sony Results in Fiscal Year 2015

Sony has released the financial results of fiscal year 2015, which ended March 31, 2016, signalling a remarkable increase in earningsof 329 percent ($ 2.6 billion) after taxes, although revenues are down slightly, 1.3 percent (71.7 billion dollars).
The gaming Division was the real star of 2015: the earnings after taxes are increased of 84.3 percent, for a total of $ 785 million, and sales rose by 11.8 percent. The figures are positive both in the hardware Division that in the software division.
Well even the divisions camera applications and home entertainment. Despite the turnover fell by 1.7 per cent and 6.4 per cent, the strategic decision to focus on more profitable premium guaranteed earnings, respectively, to 638 and 447 million, after taxes.
The mobile Division, instead, always records heavy losses, to 544 million dollars. Revenues fell by 20 percent from last year, but are a consequence of the strategy of pointing to the premium sector we mentioned just above.
Impress more losses in the field components, which includes the camera sensors for wholesale smartphones, for some years one of the flagships of the company. The Division is under to 253 million dollars, while last year earned about $ 724 million. The figures seem to suggest that the company has lost a major client (remember that in the portfolio there are giants like Apple and Samsung), but there is no evidence nor indiscretions in support.
