    ◎索尼以23億美元的投資成為全球最大的音樂出版商,該協議增加了來自EMI音樂出版公司的超過200萬首歌曲的目錄到索尼已經擁有的230萬首曲目中,其中包括從Queen樂團到Pharrell Williams的作品。
    ◎此項對EMI的投資是索尼的新執行長吉田健一郎上任後的首個重大舉措,就像另一巨頭集團Vivendi一樣,索尼正在享受因串流收入增加而為音樂產業帶來的復甦。該項與位於阿布達比的投資公司Mubadala的交易讓索尼在EMI所持有的股份從30%增加到約90%。
    ◎預期索尼的新老闆將會有更多基於內容的投資,他也為公司製定了新的戰略計劃。他表示「我們是一家技術公司,但技術不僅意味著電子產品,還意味著娛樂和內容創作」。

    With a check for $2.3 billion, Sony has become the world's largest music publisher. The deal adds a catalog of more than two million songs from EMI Music Publishing, including hits ranging from Queen to Pharrell Williams to Sony's already massive 2.3 million track repertoire.
    The EMI investment is the first major move by new Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida. Sony, like fellow corporate giant Vivendi, is enjoying a music industry resurgence fueled by revenue from streaming. The deal with Abu Dhabi-based investment firm Mubadala increases Sony's stake in EMI from 30% to about 90%.
    "We are thrilled to bring EMI Music Publishing into the Sony family and maintain our number one position in the music publishing industry," Yoshida said in a statement. ""In the entertainment space, we are focusing on building a strong IP [intellectual property] portfolio, and I believe this acquisition will be a particularly significant milestone for our long-term growth."
    Expect more content based bets frmn the new Sony boss, who also unveiled anew strategic plan for the company. "We are a technology firm, but the technology means not only electronics but also entertainment and content-creation," said Yoshida.
