Sony announced today that it is selling its U.S. headquarters building located on Madison Avenue in New York City to a real estate consortium headed by The Chetrit Group. The sale price for the 37-story building is $1.1 billion.

“Given the opportunities and challenges in the current economic and real estate landscape, selling 550 Madison now is a timely and logical strategic move,” Sony Corporation of America President Nicole Seligman said in the statement, according to Bloomberg.

Details of Headquarters Sale By Sony

The sale of Sony’s assets is a longtime coming. The company has struggled over the past few years with increased competition and sluggish television sales. Along with getting rid of many of its assets, Sony is also cutting 10,000 jobs. The company is also reportedly looking to sell its Tokyo building for between $1 billion and $1.5 billion.

After paying back debt related to its Madison Avenue building, Sony plans to keep around $770 million from this sale.

“Sony is undertaking a range of initiatives to strengthen its financial foundation and business competitiveness and for future growth,” the company said in a statement. “At the same time, Sony is balancing cash inflows and outflows while working to improve its cash flow by carefully selecting investments, selling assets and strengthening control of working capital such as inventory. This sale is made as a part of such initiatives.”

While Sony is selling 550 Madison, several of its businesses — including Sony Music Entertainment, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and others — will stay in the building for the next couple of years.

The deal between Sony and The Chetrit Group is expected to close in March.

  1. I’ve got a 1 1/two year old male chinchilla and I wish to get another chinchilla. I lately upgrades his cage from the 3 level cage to some 5 level cage, and so i don’t believe room could be an problem. I have that old cage. I’m wondering what I have to determine if I recieve another. As with how you can introduce them.the age of I ought to purchase the other chinchilla. And That I decipher it would need to function as the same sex.

  2. Okay, I’ve got a jailbroken ipod device touch 1.1.1. I’ve been attempting to jailbreak 1.1.3, however i haven’t had the ability to. If at all possible, would you let me know EXACTLY how you can do that? Thanks!!

  3. How do you find ?1/(1 + tan?).d?

    Thanks!

  4. okay so that one has me stumped. I recieve up to now before i lose all train of thought.

    (1/1-sinx)-(1/1+sinx)= (1+sinx)-(1-sinx)/(1-sinx)(1+sinx)= (1+sinx)-(1-sinx)/ 1-sin^2(x)=

    (1+sinx)-(1-sinx)/ cos^2(x)=? i still can’t reach 2tanxsecx. Which divided it could be

    2(sin/cos)(1/cos)

  5. Okay this can be a stupid question I must admit but, exactly what does 1+1=

    P.S You would need to be wise and think outdoors from the box within this question.
