Sony reports first annual profit in five years

9 May 2013 Last updated at 10:02 BST

Sony has reported an annual profit for the first time in five years, boosted by a weakening yen and asset sales.

The electronics giant made a net profit of 43bn yen ($436m; £280m) in the year to 31 March, reversing a loss of 457bn yen in the same period a year earlier.

Sony said the yen's recent fall, which makes Japanese goods cheaper for foreign buyers, had helped boost sales.
