is engaging in dialogue with Third Point and its founder, Daniel Loeb, amid the activist hedge fund's second push for the Japanese electronics and entertainment company to spin off its semiconductor business, the Financial Times reported. In a letter to its investors circulated Thursday, Third Point said that from its vantage point Sony's stock is undervalued and that the company's portfolio needs to be less complicated. The firm said it has invested $1.5 billion in building an equity position in Sony.
Sony’s shares rose 3.1% in Tokyo after Loeb’s Third Point published a letter and 102-page presentation pushing for changes at the Japanese media and electronics giant, including sales of its insurance business and stakes in companies like Spotify Technology SA. If the company spins off the semiconductor business and executes on its long-term vision, the newly independent entity could be worth $35 billion within five years, according to the New York-based hedge fund firm.
In a seven-page letter and 100-slide presentation, Third Point LLC’s founder and CEO outlined what Sony’s shares have been saying for years: The company is worth more than the sum of its parts. Any Sony investor ought to share the frustration of Third Point, which owns a $1.5 billion stake. After posting losses for six out of seven years, Sony just notched its fourth consecutive annual profit (up 87% in the year through March 31). While this turnaround lifted shares, they’ve remained largely stagnant since the end of October 2017, when PlayStation demand spurred a fourfold increase in quarterly operating profit.
This marks the second time in six years that Loeb, one of the world's highest-profile activist investors, has targeted the Japanese electronics maker - although last time he pushed for a radically different shake-up, pressing for a spin-off of entertainment assets. Reuters reported in April that Third Point was once again targeting Sony.
