Dubai Firms Invests Substantial Stake in Sony

An investment company owned by Dubai's ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, bought a stake in Sony Corp., in the latest sign of the growing appetite for overseas investments by Middle Eastern investors. Dubai International Capital said yesterday it made a "substantial" investment in Sony. Spokesmen for DIC, of the United Arab Emirates, and Sony declined to reveal the size of the deal. The stake is likely to be less than 5%. Any higher, and DIC would be required to make a public disclosure under Japanese securities law.Source: WSJ

You have absolutely no reason to say that based on your post. :wtf: Troll in general nonsense, where it belongs.

This makes you wonder how much money Sony actually has coming in from investment firms like this all over the world...
