Sony and Japan Industrial Partners announced that they have entered into a memorandum of understanding that confirms their intent for Sony to sell to JIP Sony's PC business currently operated under the VAIO brand. Sony and JIP are aiming to conclude definitive agreements by the end of March, following due diligence and negotiation of detailed terms and conditions of the sale. The parties' current intention is to sell Sony's PC business and certain related assets to a new company established by JIP, targeting July 1 for the completion of the sale. The terms and conditions of the sale and details of the new company's structure are subject to further discussion between the two parties.
