Decision to split entertainment and electronics divisions may take place on June 20th

Kazuo Hirai hopes to keep the corporation’s entertainment and electronics divisions unified going forward.

A Nikkei report reveals the Sony president's stance against the split – despite significant noise over the past several weeks that the company is heavily considering just the opposite.

It was also reported a few weeks back that Sony had called in a pair of major financial services groups to assist in formulating a plan that would best benefit the firm. 

A shareholder meeting is planned for this Thursday, June 20th. It’s widely believed a decision will be made on the matter then, one way or the other.
