/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OUTSIDE CANADA/
NEW YORK, March 29 /CNW/ - Sony Corporation announced today that it has

Sony Corporation will continue to deliver to holders of its securities
resident in Canada all disclosure material required by U.S. federal securities
law to be delivered to holders of its securities in the United States, in the
manner and at the time required by U.S. federal securities law and the
requirements of the New York Stock Exchange.
