Background to the revision of full-year forecasts

As for the sales forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013: net sales are expected to be 770.0 billion yen, 50.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast (announced on December 10, 2012); sales from semiconductors are expected to be 711.0 billion yen, 49.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast.

Sales from semiconductors for the three months ended December 31, 2012, were lower than the expectation. This was mainly due to a decline in demand of semiconductors for automotive and industrial applications which were expected to recover the demand at certain level in the second half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 as well as semiconductors for consumer electronics whose sales were expected to be steady through a large-scale custom project, influenced by production decrease at customers due to the prolonged downturn of the global economy. In addition to this, production decrease of automotive, electronic and other equipment for China also brought further impact on demand of semiconductors through the period. Moreover, the Group expects sales from semiconductors for the three months ending March 31, 2013 also to fall below its original expectation due to the same factors at the previous quarter. For these reasons, the Group has made a downward revision to its forecasts for both net sales and sales from semiconductors. The Group expects the sales from three product areas; MCUs, Analog & Power Devices and SoC solutions; to be lower than the previous forecasts respectively.

As for the earnings forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013, despite the Group’s efforts on holding down costs including personnel expenses, lower profit is expected along with decrease in sales from semiconductors and production decrease. Therefore, the Group has revised the earnings forecasts as follow: operating loss is expected to be 26.0 billion yen, 47.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast; ordinary loss is expected to be 34.0 billion yen, 44.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast; net loss is expected to be 176.0 billion yen, 26.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast.

The consolidated financial forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 are based on the rate of 83 yen per USD and 109 yen per Euro for the average of the second half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013, 82 yen per USD and 106 yen per Euro for the average of the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.

Details will be explained in Renesas' announcement of financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2012 on February 8, 2013.

Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this press release with respect to the plans, strategies and financial outlook of Renesas Electronics and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively “we”) are forward-looking statements involving risks and uncertainties. We caution you in advance that actual results may differ materially from such forward-looking statements due to several important factors including, but not limited to, general economic conditions in our markets, which are primarily Japan, North America, Asia, and Europe; demand for, and competitive pricing pressure on, products and services in the marketplace; ability to continue to win acceptance of products and services in these highly competitive markets; and fluctuations in currency exchange rates, particularly between the yen and the U.S. dollar. Among other factors, downturn of the world economy; deteriorating financial conditions in world markets, or deterioration in domestic and overseas stock markets, may cause actual results to differ from the projected results forecast.
