Sony doesn't pay a dividend this year

Sony won't pay an interim and final dividend this year. The last three years an interim and final dividend of 12.50 JPY was paid.

The total annual dividend of 25 JPY resulted in an indicated dividend yield of 1.2% at the current stock price of 2123.5.

"As we stated in our Securities Report (Yukashoken Houkokusho) and Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, Sony believes that continuously increasing corporate value and providing dividends are essential to rewarding stockholders. The company’s dividend policy is to determine the amount of dividends based on consolidated operating results, financial condition and future business expectations. In light of the downward revision in this fiscal year’s forecast for consolidated financial results due to the impairment charge in the Mobile Communications segment announced today, Sony has determined to pay no interim dividend or year-end dividend for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015."
