About Sony divisions has been discussed a lot, especially in mobile, but is not that on which the company has made the last movement. As noted Routers Japanese company has signed an agreement to transfer most of its business in the company Murata batteries.
Thus, Sony reorganizes the dedication of funds and resources to other divisions, while the also Japanese Murata plans to grow in the energy industry in relation to the batteries. A deal of that there are still some details to be agreed, but which already they have some clues and statements.
The ballast of one is the urge to another
According to information we have at the moment, Sony would transfer much of its divisions battery but not all. In particular, it would be subsidiary Sony Energy Devices, responsible for manufacturing batteries for smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and rechargeable lithium batteries. The plants of this subsidiary are distributed in Japan, Singapore and China.
In this regard, according to background information FoneArena the agreement would mean that the resources and staff dedicated to batteries in sales and R & D plants both in Japan and in the rest of the world would be transferred. Sony detailing some parts still remain in the company, but neither have proven entirely clear to the total divisions do not carry over.
Another goodbye in Sony
A couple of years ago we echoed a horizon that seemed to reach for some time: Sony VAIO division sold computers. This time it was JIP (Japan Industrial Partners), an investment fund in the country, staying with division employees. He explained the Japanese company that was becoming too difficult to adjust to the changes was suffering the PC industry (especially profitable), choosing to focus on mobile devices.
But two years later what we’re seeing is that either knew not, or was not the best solution (just seeing how it will the PC industry has more ballots first). In fact, this movement of Sony relates to march carrying the mobile division of the company in recent balances, partly due to a drop in demand for mobile in general. Although it was the first company to commercialize lithium batteries in 1991, this business has not given the expected results in the last few months getting a lot worse than last year result.

Something that is very significant of this movement is the fact that the transfer is a solution, which in practice will also face the company, they say. Something that will look at some of the balances in the coming quarters, and obviously still reflected nothing will come in which in principle is expected to announce Sony tomorrow (July 29).
As we mentioned, this agreement will be a way for the company to be restructured towards the sectors themselves are pulling the cart as is the video game division. As we saw in the results for the first fiscal quarter sales of PlayStation they grew by 10.5%, obtaining more benefits than the previous year (and with the leap to virtual reality with PlayStation VR). Not to forget the cinema, as Sony Pictures had a good quarter with films like Hotel Transylvania 2 or Spectre, garnering almost 30% more than in 2014, with the addition that the music was not bad at them.
Meanwhile, as we mentioned at the beginning Murata, dedicated to the manufacture of electronic components of various types (such as sensors and other parts of smartphones, industrial machinery and electronic products in general), plans to expand its business to the fields of automation, the health and especially in the energy market. The definitive agreement for both companies claim will be formalized by October 2016 and it is expected that the transfer of divisions is made after March 2017 once everything is approved by regulators.Tags: sells batteries division, Sony
