In view of the upcoming transition into the next century, Sony Electronics Inc. has been pro-actively reviewing its internal computer systems and business applications to ensure that these systems are Year 2000 ready, and to plan and implement appropriate system changes/upgrades where necessary. This effort began in 1996 and we are currently targeted to have the necessary system changes and upgrades completed in time to adequately handle the change in centuries.

The processes and methodologies being followed in this undertaking are those which are generally accepted information technology industry practices for major project assessment, planning, development, testing and implementation.

It is, of course, our intention to cooperate with our electronic trading partners and those organizations with whom Sony Electronics shares data files or otherwise interconnects its computer systems to ensure continued compatibility between our organizations. If your company is one of these organizations, we welcome your specific compatibility inquiries and ask for your cooperation in responding to ours. Inquiries about specific compatibility issues can be directed to:
