Background to the difference

Renesas announced the following financial results for the six months ended September 30, 2013: net sales were 416.9 billion yen, 8.9 billion yen up from the previous forecast (announced on August 2, 2013); semiconductor sales were 397.3 billion yen, 7.3 billion yen up from the previous forecast.

Operating income (loss) and ordinary income (loss) were better than the company's estimates and quarterly net loss decreased, mainly owing to semiconductor sales being slightly over the company's expectation and its efforts on promoting drastic cost-containment measures and reduction of part of the costs that were expected to be recorded as special loss, etc.

Details will be explained in Renesas' announcement of financial results for the second quarter ended September 30, 2013 on October 30, 2013.
