Electronics
 
Sony’s electronics products and services are marketed throughout the world under the trademark “Sony,” which has been registered in 204 countries and territories.
 
In most cases, sales of Sony’s electronics products are made to sales subsidiaries of Sony Corporation located in or responsible for sales in the countries and territories where Sony’s products and services are marketed. These subsidiaries then sell those products to local distributors and dealers. In some regions, sales of certain products and services are made directly to local distributors by Sony Corporation.
 
Sales in the Electronics segment are particularly seasonal and also vary significantly with the timing of new product introductions and economic conditions of each country. Sales for the third quarter ending December 31 of each fiscal year are generally higher than other quarters of the same fiscal year due to demand in the year-end holiday season.
