At the 14th Ordinary General Shareholders’ Meeting held on June 28, 2016, a partial amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was approved and Renesas Electronics Group implemented a change of the fiscal term in which the fiscal year-end will change from March 31 to December 31 starting from the fiscal year 2016. The current fiscal year (fiscal year ending December 31, 2016) in which the transition to the new accounting period is to take place, will comprise the financial results for the nine months from April1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.


Therefore, the forecasts for the year ending December 31, 2016 are sum of the results of the six months ended September 30, 2016 and the forecasts of the three months ending December 31, 2016. The consolidated forecasts for the year ending December 31, 2016 are calculated at the rate of 106 yen per USD and 118 yen per Euro.

For the year ending December 31, 2016, while the Group expects to post net income (net income attributable to shareholders of parent company) for the year ending December 31, 2016, the Group regrettably suspended interim dividend payment for this period in order to build a solid profitable financial base that can stably record net income moving forward.
