Stringer: :I'll be back."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Of course I have responsibility. I’m the CEO. But life is never as simple as seven years of losses indicating seven straight years of getting something wrong… Many of you wrote, ‘Look he’s turning Sony around.’ And then came the Lehman shock—Sony and everybody else went into depression… I think you could make the glass half-full or half-empty. Twice we’ve returned it to the edge of profitability…and I know this doesn’t ring true for any of you for reasons I’m not sure I understand. Sony, like much of Japan, is in real difficulty. We have bounced back twice and don’t bet against us bouncing back again. I think it could be very nice if there were no earthquakes, no floods, no hackers, no anything. But with our own skills we can get the company back to the target…and we’ll be back. And when we do come back, I’ll come back to this press conference just to address one or two of the reporters again.” —Sir Howard Stringer, addressing the media while introducing his successor, Kaz Hirai, quoted in the Wall Street Journal.
