2. Background to the difference
Consolidated revenue for the year ended December 31, 2021 was 994.4 billion yen, a 38.9% increase year on year. This was mainly due to an increase in revenue in the Automotive Business as a result of the recovery from the reduced vehicle production caused by the COVID-19 pandemic mostly during the first half of the fiscal year ended 2020, in addition to an increase in revenue capturing demand expansion in the Industrial/Infrastructure/IoT Business and a sales increase effect from the consolidation of Dialog following the completion of the acquisition on August 31, 2021.
The gross profit increased not only from the growth in sales, but also from improvements in the product mix and the factory utilization rate. Renesas also made efforts to streamline selling, general and administrative expenses. As a result, the financial results of the operating profit, profit before tax from continuing operations, profit, and profit attributable to owners of the parent for the year ended December 31, 2021 significantly exceeded the results from the previous period.
