Sony sees loss from Crosswave

Sony Corp. said it expects to write down ¥6 billion after Tokyo's Crosswave Communications Inc., in which the maker of electronics owns a 23.9% stake, filed for protection from its creditors.

    Write-down from cross-shareholding will dent profits

    Crosswave Communications and its two Japanese units filed petitions for corporate-reorganization proceedings with the Tokyo District Court Thursday.

     

    The three companies' combined debt totals ¥68.4 billion ($57.4 million), Teikoku Data Bank - a private Japanese credit-research organisation, told Dow Jones.

     

    The data-communications carrier said its common shares and American depositary receipts representing such shares will most likely lose all value.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
