Sony doubles full-year profit forecasts to ¥40 billion
Operating income also up from HQ and other assets sales
Sony Corporation has doubled its profits forecast for the fiscal year ended March 31, from ¥20 billion ($201m / £130) to ¥40 billion ($403m / £261m).
The change is due to a deprecation of the yen during January, February and March, and better than expected performance of its financial services division.
Sony releases full-year financial results on May 9.
