Recently, in an annual shareholders assembly, the corporate’s shareholders have reportedly permitted the proposal to vary the corporate’s identify. As per the studies, the brand new identify of the corporate might be “Sony Group” as a substitute of simply “Sony”. At least it’s higher than the identify of their newest Xperia units.
“We decided to rename the company to the Sony Group because we want to make full use of the diversity of our business portfolio to promote the development and evolution of the business.”, mentioned the corporate’s CEO, Yoshida Kenichiro.
Now, in case you don’t know, Sony began off within the 12 months 1946 with the identify “Tokyo Telecommunications Industry Co., Ltd.”. After about 12 years, in 1958, the corporate adopted the identify “Sony”. At the time, the identify represented the corporate’s purpose of changing into a world model. That was the dream of the corporate’s co-founder, Shoda Morita.
Well, now that the corporate has turn out to be a world model, the renaming comes after 60 complete years of the preliminary identify change. Now, as you already seen, it’s not an entire identify change. It is simply the addition of the phrase “group” that can supposedly diversify the corporate’s enterprise extra. It plans to undertake the brand new identify, “Sony Group”, from the start of the following fiscal 12 months, April 2021.
