Loeb said money from the sale could be used to shore up Sony's ailing device manufacturing unit.
Sony initially responded by saying its entertainment business wasn't for sale, though some analysts said the strategy might help Sony unlock hidden value.

The company posted fiscal fourth-quarter adjusted earnings of 69 cents a share, topping estimates by a penny.
