Notice Regarding Application to Delist from the London Stock Exchange

Tokyo, Japan – At the Board of Directors’ Meeting held today, Sony Corporation (“Sony”) resolved to make an application to each of the UK Listing Authority and the London Stock Exchange for the cancellation of the listing of Sony’s shares of common stock (including depositary receipts representing such shares; hereinafter the same shall apply) on the Official List and the cancellation of admission to trading of such shares on the Regulated Market of the London Stock Exchange (together, the “delisting” of such shares). Related matters in this regard are as follows:

1. Reasons for delisting:

2. Stock exchanges on which Sony’s shares will continue to be listed:

Tokyo Stock Exchange and New York Stock Exchange.

3. Date of Delisting Application:

July 30, 2014.

4. Schedule:

The delisting of Sony’s shares is expected to take effect on or around August 29, 2014. The admission of Sony’s Zero Coupon Convertible Bonds due 2017 to listing on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange will be continued.
