Renesas Electronics Announces Absorption-Type Merger (Simplified/Short-Form Merger) With Consolidated Subsidiary and Debt Waiver

Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723, “Renesas Electronics”), a premier provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that, under the approval of Renesas Electronics' Board of Directors on July 28, 2014, it will consolidate its subsidiary Renesas Mobile Corporation (“Renesas Mobile”) through an absorption-type merger (“Merger”).

Since the Merger is an absorption-type merger of a wholly-owned subsidiary, certain disclosure items and details have been omitted.

1. Purpose of Merger

Renesas Mobile was established in 2010 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics that is principally engaged in the design of system-on-chip (SoC) devices for use in mobile phones and car information systems (CIS). However, as announced on March 12, 2013, Renesas Electronics has been considering a variety of structural reform measures for the mobile business of Renesas Mobile, and has implemented measures to withdraw from the 4G wireless business.

As an important initiative among the structural reform measures currently being undertaken by the company, Renesas Electronics has decided to execute an absorption-type merger with Renesas Mobile with an aim of expanding its CIS business in the automotive field, by concentrating resources involved in that business within Renesas Electronics and to improve the company's ability to develop solutions, while boosting the operational efficiency of that business and strengthening the profit structure.

2. Summary of Merger

(1) Schedule of Merger

- Approval of Board of Directors regarding debt waiver to consolidated subsidiary: July 28, 2014

- Approval of Board of Directors regarding the Merger: July 28, 2014

- Conclusion of merger agreement: July 28, 2014

- Date of Merger (effective date): October 1, 2014 (planned)

(Note) Renesas Electronics will follow the procedure for a simple absorption-type merger as stipulated under Article 796, §3 of the Japan Corporation Law, and Renesas Mobile will follow the procedure for a short-form absorption-type merger as stipulated in Article 784, §1 of the Japan Corporation Law, both of which do not require approval of the merger agreement by a general meeting of shareholders.

(2) Method of Merger

The Merger will be conducted through an absorption-type merger method in which Renesas Electronics will be the surviving company and Renesas Mobile will be dissolved as the absorbed company.

Since Renesas Mobile presently has liabilities exceeding its assets, Renesas Electronics plans to waive the debts owed by Renesas Mobile in advance of the merger, thereby eliminating its state of insolvency before the merger takes place.

- Debts to be waived: Loans and other accounts receivable

- Total value of debts to be waived: 38.9 billion yen (estimate)

- Implementation date: September 30, 2014 (planned)

(3) Distribution of Assets

Since Renesas Mobile is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics, there will be no stocks, money, etc. issued in connection with the Merger

(4) Share subscription rights and bonds with share subscription rights

No share subscription rights or bonds with share subscription rights are issued.
