Background to the revision of full-year forecasts

Renesas announced the following revisions to its forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013: net sales are expected to total 820.0 billion yen, 48.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast (announced on August 2, 2012); semiconductor sales are expected to total 760.0 billion yen, 51.0 billion yen down from the previous forecast.

As factors including prolonged debt worries in Europe, further market slowdown in China and other emerging economies as well as increased uncertainty of Japan-China relations might impact on demand, Renesas forecasts its sales to be less than the original expectations and has made a downward revision to its forecasts for both net sales and semiconductor sales. The company expects the sales from three product areas, MCUs, analog and power (A&P) devices and system-on-Chip (SoC) solutions; to decline from the previous forecast.

Although there might be the anticipation of the reduction of the incomes with decline of semiconductor sales, Renesas has not changed its forecasts for operating income, ordinary income and net income from the figure announced on August 2, 2012, by streamlining production and further expense reduction measures.

The consolidated financial forecasts for the second half of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 are based on the rate of 81 yen per USD and 105 yen per Euro.

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.
