US and Canadian Residents:

US and Canadian residents can purchase Sony ADRs through a brokerdealer or through an International Direct Investment Plan (the "IDI Plan"). The IDI Plan is sponsored and administered by Sony's Depositary Bank, Citibank, N.A. The IDI Plan registration is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only and is designed to provide existing owners of ADRs and new interested investors who would like to participate in the IDI Plan a convenient way to invest and/or increase their investment in Sony ADRs. The plan allows you to reinvest your dividend. Sony has agreed to the establishment of the IDI Plan by Citibank, N.A., but does not, and should not be deemed to, sponsor or administer the IDI Plan. Sony assumes no obligation or liability for the operation of the IDI Plan. Please refer to the Sony website Terms of Use (below) for more details regarding links to non-Sony sites.
