We confirmed no casualties at Renesas Group’s affiliate companies and offices from the earthquake that hit Kumamoto and the surrounding areas on Aug 31 at 19:46 p.m.
While there was no damage to the factory building or equipment, we halted operation of the Kawashiri Factory due to the need to temporarily evacuate our employees and to temporarily suspend the production lines to secure the safety of the material supply for the semiconductor manufacturing.
Renesas is currently assessing the status of the factory and intends to issue an updated notice at around 7:00 p.m. on September 1, 2016 (Japan time).
The content in the press release, including, but not limited to, product prices and specifications, is based on the information as of the date indicated on the document, but may be subject to change without prior notice.
