The weakness of the yen has contributed to increased earnings by Sony.
It has been announced by the company that it made a net profit of 3.5 billion yen (£23 million) in the second quarter of the year.
Sony confirmed that this was compared to a loss of 24.6 billion yen last year, indicating that the firm has enjoyed a stronger three-month period than expected.
The boost to Sony's finances has been aided by a weak yen, with the commodity having lost 25 per cent against the US dollar since November.
Analysts stated Asian firms will see improvements in their profits as a result of the weak yen.
Sony's shares ended the day of trading in Asia at 21.04, which is close to the 52-week high for the firm's stocks of 23.38. In the last year, its shares have been selling for as low as 9.57.
