Sony Q4 and full-year 2023 earnings

Sony on Tuesday reported a 7% drop in annual profits in the fiscal year 2023 amid weakness in its gaming division.

Here’s how Sony did in the March quarter versus LSEG consensus estimates:

  • Revenue: 3.5 trillion yen ($22.4 billion) versus 2.89 trillion yen expected. That represents a 14% increase year-over-year — but the first drop since Sony’s 2020 September quarter, according to LSEG data.
  • Operating profit: 229.4 billion yen versus 236.81 billion yen expected. That marks a 57% jump year-over-year.

The Japanese gaming giant reported 2023 revenue of 13 trillion, an increase of 19% year-over-year.

Sony’s operating profit for the full year, though, came in at 1.2 trillion, down 7% year-over-year.

The drop in quarterly revenue comes after Sony in February cut its forecast for its flagship PlayStation 5 console. The firm at the time said it expected to sell 21 million units of the PS5 in the fiscal year, down from an earlier forecast of 25 million units.
