Sony and Mubadala Sign Definitive Agreement for Sony to Acquire Interest in EMI Music Publishing
 
On June 29, 2018 (U.S. Eastern Daylight Time), Sony Corporation ("Sony") and the investor consortium led by Mubadala Investment Company ("Mubadala") announced the signing of a definitive agreement for the sale of the Mubadala consortium's approximately 60% equity interest in D.H. Publishing, L.P., which owns and manages EMI Music Publishing, to Sony Corporation of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony (the "Transaction").
 
The signing of this definitive agreement follows the signing of a legally binding memorandum of understanding, which was announced on May 22, 2018.

The closing of the Transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. Sony is currently evaluating the impact of the Transaction on its consolidated financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019.
