		Sony Corp stock: sum-of-the-parts analysis reveals massive rise (NYSE:SONY)

MMassel/iStock Unpublished via Getty Images

Sony group company (NYSE: SONY) is one of Japan’s most iconic companies. The giant has made a name for itself for making reliable consumer electronics, be it televisions, cameras and, most notably, its PlayStation game console. But Sony is much more than a consumer electronics company; its PlayStation business is now focused on software rather than hardware sales. It is also the world’s largest music company by revenue, larger than Universal Music Group NV (OTCPK:UMGNF).

His cinematographic activity has enjoyed great success, the latest of which was Spider-Man: No Coming Home, which has grossed $1.9 billion worldwide. Its Hawk-Eye computer vision system is used in many sports such as tennis, football and baseball to assist officials and provide analytical services. It also has a very strong semiconductor business.

In addition to its technology business, the company has a large financial services arm in Japan. Sony is therefore a leading company in games, music, scripted content, consumer electronics and semiconductors. Yet despite this, it has a market capitalization of $104 billion, far smaller than companies like Costco Wholesale Corporation (COST), The Walt Disney Company (DIS), and Salesforce Inc. (CRM). Sony generated more operating revenue in 2021 than these three companies combined.

This article will argue that Sony is undervalued and based on the multiples assigned to its competitors, the sum of the company’s coins would be at least 50% greater than its current market capitalization. I will use price/sales and price/operating profit in the valuation, as these are the two metrics Sony management communicates to investors when reviewing each business unit.

Games

With Tencent Holdings Ltd. (OTCPK: TCEHY), Sony is considered the largest game company in the world. Its PlayStation console dwarfs that of Microsoft’s Xbox (MSFT). Its monthly PlayStation Plus Network users stand at 106 million, far more than Xbox users. Sony’s gaming unit generated more than $24 billion in revenue in 2021, compared to Microsoft’s $15 billion from games. The comparison with Microsoft’s Xbox is relevant given that both companies are the largest game consoles in the world and because they operate the app store business connected to these consoles.

Applying Microsoft’s price/sales multiple of 9.7 on Sony’s gaming unit would result in a massive ($24.4 billion * 9.7) valuation of $236.68 billion. A more appropriate approach would be to use multiples of operating income. Applying Microsoft’s price/operating earnings multiple to Sony’s gaming unit would yield a more reasonable price ($3 billion * 26) of $80 billion. One could argue that comparing the two on the basis of the multiple would favor Sony, given that Microsoft has phenomenal cloud business and better margins which increase its multiple.

I would certainly concede this criticism for the valuation derived on the basis of price/sales, but not that of price/operating income. This is due to two reasons: 1) The $80 billion valuation for the gaming business is only 15% higher than Microsoft’s valuation of Activision Blizzard Inc. (ATVI). It’s clear that Sony’s gaming business is larger than Activision’s, given that it’s the major console maker (mostly a duopoly) and operates the console’s app store. ; and 2) A 26x multiple for operating profit seems reasonable, given that Microsoft bought Activision for 20x operating margins. The second-largest game publisher, Electronic Arts Inc. (EA), sells for more than 30 times its price/operating profit.

the price/operating earnings multiple of Sony and its gaming competitors

Sony’s multiple is far lower than its gaming peers (Created by the author using regulatory repositories)

Music

Sony’s music business is the largest in the world by revenue, or the second largest if you count Spotify. It generated nearly $10 billion in revenue in its fiscal year that ended March 2021. In calendar year 2021, the company generated $9.5 billion in revenue, significantly more than those generated by Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group Corporation (WMG). The business is growing rapidly; Revenue grew nearly 19% year-over-year in constant currency in 2021. Music streaming revenue grew 37% over the same period in constant currency and currently accounts for 42% of sales.

Pricing for Sony’s music business is much simpler than for games, given that both of its competitors are state-owned companies. Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group are trading at a price/operating profit of 27.2 and 21.2 respectively. Sony’s music business made more revenue, operating profit and had higher operating margins than both companies in 2021. But to be on the safe side, I’ll assign the company the average price/ operating profit of its competitors of 24.2. This would give the music business unit a price of (24.2*1.9) of nearly $46 billion.

Pictures

Sony has maintained a decent TV and film business after acquiring Columbia Pictures a decade ago. The unit generated more than $11 billion in revenue and nearly $2 billion in operating profit in 2021.

The company has two phenomenal movie franchises in Spider-Man and Venom. He also distributed and produced some of television’s most iconic shows like Seinfeld, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and The Crown. A smaller but significant portion of the unit’s revenue comes from a group of pay-TV channels it offers in the United States and overseas.

The company looks a lot like Warner Bros. Discovery Inc. (WBD), given cable exposure and strong film and television franchises.

It’s hard to say that Warner Bros. Discovery is trading on fundamentals, but applying its current price / 2021 operating profit to the Sony Pictures business would give the unit (3.7*$1.9 billion) a price of $7 billion. dollars.

Consumer electronics, semi-finished, computer vision system

I grouped consumer electronics, semi-finished, and hawkeye companies together because Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) can serve as a comparable company in pricing these units. These companies generated more than $30 billion in revenue in the company’s 2021 fiscal year. Operating profit was $3.3 billion. These 3 units have some of Sony’s most famous products, whether it’s televisions, smartphones, cameras or the Hawk-eye computer vision system used in tennis and other major sports.

Samsung is a good comp. to these units given the South Korean company’s similar business lines in consumer electronics and semiconductors. Samsung is currently selling at 7.45 times its 12-month operating profit. This would give Sony’s business units a price of (7.45 * $3.3 billion) $24.5 billion.

Bring it all together

Adding the price of all business units would give Sony a price of (80 + 46 + 7 + 24.5) of $157.5 billion ($125 per share), an increase of 48%. You also get the financial services business for free. This unit made $1.3 billion in operating profit on $13.7 billion in revenue in 2021.

Sony’s return on equity is in line with that of the average S&P 500 company. Its business has different types of barriers to entry that could allow the company to at least maintain its ROE in the future. Pricing the 3.9 book multiple that the average S&P 500 company gets at Sony’s current book value (3.9 * $39) would get a valuation north of $150 per share. Sony could also increase its book value by about $6 per share per year, meaning the book value could double at least every 6.5 years.

Risks

Further declines in general stock prices would likely lower multiples for comparable Sony shares. The valuation provided in the article leaned towards conservatism whenever the option existed, providing some margin of safety against any potential downside. Inflation could see Sony increase its capital expenditure, which could reduce the quality of the company’s operating result.

Market factors:

The automotive industry’s growing demand for pre-treating coatings is still in its infancy. Automobile sales are also expanding, which benefits the market. Another key reason for the growth of the global market is the increasing use of powder coating in many end-use sectors such as construction and aerospace. Players in the global coatings pretreatment market could benefit from the shifts of various manufacturers towards green and environment-friendly coatings. Furthermore, the market is propelled by strong growth in end-user sectors such as aeronautics and electronics, particularly in emerging countries.

Pre-treatment coatings have no negative effect on the original paint. It has several advantages, including better adhesion between the metal substrate and the paint and protection against corrosion under the paint. Advancements in the automotive and heavy-duty industries have led to the creation of creative and safe parts for use in automobiles to meet current and future consumer needs.

Market constraints:

During the assessment period, stringent regulations on pre-treatment techniques for chromate-based coatings are likely to stifle the growth of the global market. Government organizations are passing stricter laws regulating emissions and levels of VOCs in coatings due to growing concerns about ozone layer depletion, increased pollution and declining air quality. outdoor air. Potential regulatory changes impact the coatings pretreatment industry as they create ambiguity throughout the value chain.

Chromium toxicity is a big problem because it can have negative environmental consequences. Nonetheless, continuous attempts by industry players to produce environmentally friendly coatings are expected to shape the future of the market. Phosphate rock mining pollutes the air, pollutes groundwater and destroys essential wildlife habitats. Surface mining of phosphate rock has a significant environmental impact, irreversibly changing the landscape and market growth.

COVID 19 analysis

Cities have been closed, border restrictions have been imposed and transport networks have been disrupted due to the spread of COVID-19 in all regions. Additionally, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many market players in the coatings pretreatment sector have had to shut down manufacturing plants or operate them at less than optimal capacity. This has led to major production disruptions and trade restrictions, which have hurt the supply of phosphate to the market.

However, as fertilizer is one of the critical applications of phosphate, the global phosphate market had no significant effect. In the pretreatment of coatings for the automotive industry, iron and zinc phosphates are essential. As these businesses are considered essential services, several larger players have maintained operations at their manufacturing plants while implementing preventative measures such as remote working, social distancing and travel limits.

June 14 (Reuters) – Russian e-commerce leader Wildberries is still selling clothes from brands Inditex (ITX.MC) which have suspended operations in the country, including the main brand of Spanish group Zara.

The TASS news agency reported on Tuesday that Zara items were being sold on Wildberries, which the Russian company confirmed.

Inditex is one of many Western brands to close stores and suspend operations in response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine, but the continued sale of some of its products highlights the struggles companies are facing to maintain control of their brands.

Other Inditex brands, Massimo Dutti and Pull&Bear, were also available on Wildberries, which said it would continue to offer these products to Russian consumers.

“We buy products that we sell to Wildberries without intermediaries, only directly from producers or official distributors,” Wildberries said in a statement on Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear which distributors Wildberries was referring to.

A source close to Inditex said the items sold by Wildberries were liquidation stock that was already in Russia when it suspended operations there. Inditex has stopped sending products to Russia since the suspension, the source added.

Products from many other western brands are also still available on Wildberries.

The company started as an online platform reselling clothes from German mail-order group Otto and now supplies everything from electronics to kitchenware, its success making founder Tatyana Bakalchuk the wealthiest woman in the world. Russia.

Hit by sanctions and supply chain issues, Russia has legalized so-called parallel imports, which allow retailers to import products from abroad without the permission of the brand owner.

Bakalchuk in March described the program as an effective support measure, stressing its importance for small and medium-sized businesses and for importing socially meaningful products. Read more

Lightyear plans to ship its solar-powered car this year https://jvc-europe.com/lightyear-plans-to-ship-its-solar-powered-car-this-year/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 15:11:00 +0000 https://jvc-europe.com/lightyear-plans-to-ship-its-solar-powered-car-this-year/

Lightyear has announced plans to ship its solar-powered car, the Lightyear 0, this year.

The company says(Opens in a new window) that it plans to offer Lightyear 0 rides in select cities this month, start producing the vehicles this fall and deliver the first cars to consumers in November.

These vehicles will be fitted with solar panels on their hoods and roofs to limit the time Lightyear 0 owners have to spend charging the vehicles. According to Lightyear, “The optimized solar roof and holistic design means the car can drive for weeks or even months without recharging.”

The company says drivers in cloudy climates who travel about 22 miles (35 km) a day could drive “up to two months” without charging their vehicles; that average time between charges reaches “up to seven months” for Lightyear 0 riders in sunnier locations.

Lightyear says it’s also trying to build its first vehicle as sustainably as possible. The interior is said to be “vegan and eco-friendly, with vegetable-tanned leather, fabrics made from recycled PET bottles and sustainably restructured rattan palm wood decor elements.”

Recommended by our editors

The company has also used recycled carbon fiber materials for the exterior and is trying to further minimize the Lightyear 0’s environmental impact by allowing it to be “plugged into a regular household outlet” rather than requiring the use of charging stations or dedicated adapters.

The Lightyear 0 is available now via the company’s website(Opens in a new window). It turns out that a solar-powered car won’t come cheap: the price starts at around $263,000 (€250,000 excluding VAT) before the vehicle is configured. Lightyear did not say if or when it plans to release the car outside of Europe.

Pelosi fears tech giants are exploiting wrinkles in China’s competition bill, sources say

For weeks, consumer advocates have been sounding the alarm that the trade language of China’s massive competition bill currently being negotiated on Capitol Hill could be exploited by tech giants to target regulations overseas, including Europe’s sweeping new digital rules.

This is a concern shared by the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), people familiar with the matter told The Technology 202.

Part of the legislation that ostensibly aims to ‘tackle censorship and barriers to digital trade’ in countries like China disagrees, but groups fear it contains loopholes that could be co-opted by big business .

According to the Senate version of the bill, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) would be required to identify and report countries “that engage in acts, policies, or practices that disrupt digital business activities,” including censorship. It’s a process that can lead to tariffs, and which proponents say could be used as a weapon to pressure tech regulations overseas.

On Friday, a transatlantic coalition of consumer groups wrote a letter to congressional leaders warning that the language was drafted too broadly and could be used by tech companies to argue that overseas rules aimed at promoting safety online or cracking down on competitive abuse are labeled as ‘censorship’ or as ‘barriers to digital trade’. The groups said in the letter shared exclusively with The Technology 202 that it could ‘undermine the Union’s overarching regulatory to protect consumers online”.

The Coalition for App Fairness, a group of smaller app developers including Match Group and Basecamp that lobbies for new tech regulations, also expressed concern last month in a separate letter obtained by The Technology 202 that the language “could be interpreted as undermining critical efforts”. to restore fairness and competition in the digital app economy. Another coalition of consumer and anti-monopoly groups took aim at the language last month.

The provision is a key point of contention for consumer advocates as talks enter a crucial stretch on Capitol Hillwhere the House and Senate will have to iron out differences between their versions of the bill, aimed at boosting competitiveness with China.

The concerns are shared by key House lawmakers, including Pelosi, said people familiar with the matter, who spoke anonymously to discuss private discussions. It could become a flashpoint in negotiations as the two chambers seek to finalize the much-watched package.

During a hearing last June, Rep. Jan Schakowski (D-Ill.) urged colleagues to reject what she called “the effort to entrench Big Tech…failed [business] models” in the Sens bill. Ron Wyden (D-Oré.) and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), who is the author of part of the Senate business title.

Schakowsky confirmed that the remarks referred to the section on censorship and digital trade barriers, among other provisions.

“This is exactly the wrong approach, and as a participant I will fight to make sure this wrong approach stays out,” Schakowsky, who is part of the group negotiating the bill, said in a statement.

Pelosi’s staff told House members she shared the concerns, according to two people familiar with the matter. A senior congressional official added “there is no daylight” between Schakowsky and Pelosi. Another senior congressional aide, who was not authorized to speak officially, said that “the House’s position is reflected in what is and is not included in the trade-related measures that have been carefully crafted to get the votes to pass the house.”

Henry Connellya spokesperson for Pelosi, said in a statement that “the President supports the trade package carefully crafted and passed by the House.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) also opposes the language. “There is no reason big tech companies should be given special treatment and a potential tool that could undermine policies that address corporate concentration, combat misinformation and protect privacy,” he said. she told The Technology 202.

Wyden pushed back on the criticism, presenting the altered trade language as a tailored approach to combat censorship by authoritarian countries like China and Russia.

“If America does not step up to combat this wave of digital censorship, authoritarian forces will win, and freedom of expression, political dissent, and human and labor rights will suffer,” he said. he said in a statement. He added that their amendment “begins the process of fighting back, calling on the USTR to identify nations that engage in coercive digital censorship.”

A Wyden staffer, who was not authorized to speak officially, noted that the censorship provisions require the USTR to identify and prioritize countries engaged in the “most serious acts, policies or practices”. onerous or the most egregious” and that the bill more broadly urges the agency to negotiate digital trade deals “with like-minded countries” that support consumer protections.

However, Wyden supports a proposed change in a letter from human rights group PEN America to add a more detailed definition of what constitutes “forced censorship” to the bill and to explicitly state that it “does not should not be construed to include government actions related to data privacy, antitrust enforcement, or anti-harassment orders,” according to the staffer.

The remarks reflect growing concern among some lawmakers and consumer advocates that corporate interests, including in Silicon Valley, are hijacking trade policy to target sweeping regulations abroad while jostling policymakers domestically.

Lawmakers including Pelosi and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) have previously expressed concern over the inclusion of language enshrining tech industry liability protections, known as Section 230, in U.S. trade agreements with allies. strangers.

NLRB denies Amazon’s request to close hearing to public

Amazon is set to argue Monday that a landmark vote to unionize a Staten Island warehouse should be overturned, Caroline O’Donovan reports. The company argued that a typical public hearing would corrupt witnesses.

‘Commission hearings are not secret,’ NLRB regional director says Cornele Overstreet wrote. “As a result, blocking the public from seeing its important processes is not an option.”

Amazon did not respond to a request for comment. (Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.)

Regulators step up probe into Tesla Autopilot crashes

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration turns its preliminary assessment into an engineering analysis, a potential precursor to a recall, Faiz Siddiqui reports. The regulator is investigating the role of Tesla driver assistance systems in collisions with parked emergency vehicles.

“The agency began evaluating the issue in August 2021, following nearly a dozen crashes in similar circumstances, which included stationary emergency vehicles such as ambulances and police cruisers, some in low light conditions,” writes Faiz. “The agency has identified 15 injured and one fatality involved in the crashes,” he wrote.

Legislation to boost semiconductor industry faces uncertainty

Time is running out for lawmakers to strike a deal on the bill amid the upcoming summer recess and midterm elections, Bloomberg News’ Jenny Leonard and Daniel Flatley report. Some senators blame the White House for not pushing the legislation enough, while some people familiar with the process tell Bloomberg News that politics is to blame for the delay on the Hill.

“Republicans who had worked with the administration on the measure are now balking at giving Biden a win ahead of the November election as their party is poised for big gains in Congress,” they write. “Instead, they aim to draft their own China bill after taking control of the House, Senate or both.” Senate Democrats have recently focused on federal gun laws, slowing work on the semiconductor bill.

Some administration officials also blame consumer electronics companies and makers for not being supportive enough, Bloomberg News reports.
