Unable to bear the continuing loss, Sony is planning on cutting over 10,000 jobs worldwide just to make ends meet.
Sony spokeswoman Yoko Yasukouchi wouldn’t confirm the reports.
New CEO Kazuo Hirai is holding a press conference Thursday.
Sony has announced restructuring plans by selling its chemical unit. Sony is also merging its LCD panel operation with Toshiba and Hitachi. Yasukouchi said those changes could affect up to 5,000 employees who are subject to transfers.
Sony earlier this year reported a 159 billion yen ($2.1 billion) loss for the October-December quarter and more than doubled its projected loss for the full fiscal year through March 2013.
