Renesas Electronics Announces Consolidated Forecasts and Forecasts of Cash Dividends

Sponsored by Businesswire

Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), a premier supplier of
advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the consolidated
financial forecasts for the six months ending June 30, 2019 and
forecasts of cash dividends.

The Group reports its consolidated forecasts on a quarterly basis
(cumulative quarters) as a range because of the difficulty of
forecasting full-year results with high accuracy due to the short-term
volatility of the semiconductor market.

Additionally, in order to provide useful information that will help to
better understand the Group’s constant business results, figures such as
sales, semiconductor sales and gross margin are presented in the
non-GAAP format, which excludes or adjusts the non-recurring items
related to acquisitions and other adjustments including non-recurring
expenses or income from the figures based on GAAP (IFRS based) following
a certain set of rules. The gross margin and operating margin forecasts
are given assuming the midpoint in the net sales forecast.

Non-GAAP figures are calculated by adjusting or removing
non-recurring items and other adjustments from GAAP (IFRS based)
figures following a certain set of rules. The Group believes
non-GAAP measures provide useful information in understanding and
evaluating the Group’s constant business results, and therefore
results are provided in non-GAAP base.
This adjustment and
exclusion include the amortization of intangible assets recognized
from acquisitions, other PPA (purchase price allocation)
adjustments and costs relating to acquisitions, stock-based
compensation, as well as other non-recurring expenses and income
the Group believes to be applicable.
In addition, as of the
first quarter ended March 31, 2019, there has been a change in the
Group’s auditor, and therefore quarterly figures of the year ended
December 31, 2018, provided under IFRS are not reviewed by the
previous auditor. However, for each of the quarterly figures of
the year ended December 31, 2018 provided under the generally
accepted accounting principal in Japan (J-GAAP) have been reviewed
by the Group’s previous auditor.



The figures of the consolidated forecasts for the six months ending June
30, 2019 are sum of the results of the three months ended March 31, 2019
and the forecasts of the three months ending June 30, 2019.

The consolidated forecasts for the six months ending June 30, 2019 are
calculated at the rate of 110 yen per USD and 125 yen per Euro.

The Group will divert its retained earnings for strategic investment
opportunities that will enable the Group to respond to rapid
environmental changes to thrive in the global marketplace and will aim
to increase shareholder profit by improving corporate value. Based on a
long-term standpoint, the Group aims to realize stable and sustained
growth in profits to allow dividends to be reinstated. However, for the
six months ending June 30, 2019, the Group will forego interim dividend
payment for this period

For the year ending December 31, 2019, the plan for year-end dividend
payments remain undecided, and the Group will immediately announce it
when the decisions are made.
