2. Background to the difference

Renesas announced the following financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2018: net sales were 389.4 billion yen, 7.4 billion yen up from the previous forecast (announced on May 11, 2018); semiconductor sales were 381.1 billion yen, 6.4 billion yen up from the previous forecast. This was mainly due to better-than-expected automotive sales compared to the forecast and the continuing depreciation of the yen against the US dollar and the Euro. Both operating and ordinary income improved from the previous forecasts mainly owing to better-than-expected sales and cost-containment effects. Net income attributable to shareholders of parent company was also better than the company's estimates, mainly from the reversal of provision for contingent loss related to the lawsuit in which the Company’s U.S. subsidiary has been named as a defendant, in addition to an increase in ordinary income.

Details that explain Renesas' announcement of financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2018 are disclosed in the Renesas press release: “Renesas Electronics Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2017 (PDF: 553 KB)” issued on July 31, 2018.
