"One ray of light that continues to shine through this disaster has been watching people rise to the challenge. Their courage, compassion and camaraderie in working together, selflessly and spontaneously, to sift their way through the rubble and confusion has been extraordinary."

SENTIMENTS FROM SONY
Memos Express Sympathy, Thanks;
Promise Support
As we have all witnessed in the last seven days, no one in the United States or abroad has been left untouched or unmoved by the tragedy experienced on Tuesday. The corporate world is certainly no exception.

Internal Sony memos HITS obtained from sources paint a picture of concern reaching to the highest ranks.

From Sony Music Entertainment Chairman/CEO Thomas D. Mottola:

All of us are reeling from Tuesday's horrific terrorist attacks. Within the span of just a few hours, our lives and our world changed, and we still don't know the extent of the damage done. We only know the magnitude.

At world headquarters the impact was immediate and indelible. While events were unfolding less than three miles away, we were witnessing them from our windows and, together with the rest of the world, on television.

In support of the heroic ongoing rescue efforts, Sony will be making a significant contribution to appropriate victim and relief services organizations as a gesture of compassion and thanks for the phenomenal amount they've accomplished under extreme circumstances during the days following the initial explosion.

I know I speak for all of us when I thank Sony and Sony Corporation of America for their expressions of deep sympathy for the victims and their families who have suffered this terrible tragedy.

One ray of light that continues to shine through this disaster has been watching people rise to the challenge. Their courage, compassion and camaraderie in working together, selflessly and spontaneously, to sift their way through the rubble and confusion has been extraordinary. There is a communal understanding that, together, we can all get through this and emerge from it stronger. Our sympathies go out to all the victims, their friends and families during the difficult days ahead.

From Sony Chairman/CEO Nobuyuki Idei:

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the whole world witnessed a terrible and tragic occurrence. There are simply no words to describe the horror and pain we feel for what has happened to our colleagues, friends and their families.

Sony Corporation, through Sony Corporation of America and all of our U.S. operating companies, is committed to supporting the rescue and recovery efforts. Currently, we are working to establish a joint effort to contribute $4 million dollars to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and the New York City Public Private Initiatives.

We are proud of the spirit and the heartfelt concern being expressed by Sony employees around the world. We know that on an individual level, many of you are making personal contributions to relief organizations, volunteer organizations and blood drives. In Tokyo, as a small gesture of our empathy, Sony employees observed a moment of silence on Wednesday (9/12).

Our thoughts and prayers are with you on this day and throughout.
