Sony has been actively trying to turn their businesses around, selling off assets and focusing on more "core" divisions but there has been little success. The company is facing a near $2 billion loss for the fiscal year ended in March, and the company has not been profitable in the last 6 years with the exception of a tiny net profit in 2013.
