Sony may announce drastic cost cuts: media | Reuters

Sony may announce drastic cost cuts: media | Reuters: "TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Sony Corp is likely to announce closures of Japanese factories and major divisions early next month, the Times of London said on Monday, but the company denied any such plan existed.
The maker of Bravia flat TVs and PlayStation video game consoles faces halting sales and mounting piles of inventory in the wake of the financial crisis, even as a stronger yen bites into earnings.

Sony, whose empire encompasses semiconductors, movies and insurance, is braced for a series of measures that would abolish some of its domestic operations and transform the electronic giant's business, the Times said, citing company sources. 'We do not plan to announce additional restructuring measures at this time,' spokesman Atsuo Omagari said, in response to the report. 'We don't have any such plan.'"
