MADISON, Wis. — Sony posted net income of 3.5 billion yen (US$35 million) in the quarter that ended June 30, after a loss of 24.6 billion yen in the quarter a year earlier. Sony also reported an operating profit of 36.7 billion yen ($369.68 million), beating the 25.3 billion yen profit expected by financial analysts.
