Sony says to turn So-net into wholly owned unit
TOKYO (Reuters) - Sony Corp said on Thursday it plans to buy all the shares it does not already own in So-net Entertainment, an internet provider and medical information website operator, for about 60 billion yen ($765.70 million).
The Japanese consumer electronics giant, which owns 58 percent of So-net directly or through subsidiaries, plans to make a tender offer bid beginning Friday through September 20 for the remaining shares and turn it into a wholly owned unit, it said in a statement.
