Renesas announced the following financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2015: net sales were 179.3 billion yen, 0.7 billion yen lower than the previous forecast (announced on May 12, 2015); semiconductor sales were 174.5 billion yen, 0.5 billion yen up from the previous forecast.


Operating income, ordinary income and net income attributable to shareholders of parent company were all better than the company's estimates, mainly owing to the cost-containment efforts and the positive effects of a weaker yen.
