TOKYO, Japan ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the consolidated financial forecasts for the six months ending June 30, 2021 and forecasts of cash dividends.

The Group reports its consolidated forecasts on a quarterly basis as a range because of the difficulty of forecasting full-year results with high accuracy due to the short-term volatility of the semiconductor market.

Additionally, in order to provide useful information to better understand the Group’s constant business results, figures such as revenue and gross margin are presented in the non-GAAP format, which excludes or adjusts the non-recurring items related to acquisitions and other adjustments including non-recurring income or loss from the figures based on GAAP (IFRS based) following a certain set of rules. The gross margin and operating margin forecasts are provided assuming the midpoint in the revenue forecast and the range of the forecast are listed in brackets.

Note: Non-GAAP figures are calculated by removing or adjusting non-recurring items and other adjustments from GAAP (IFRS based) figures following a certain set of rules. The Group believes non-GAAP measures provide useful information in understanding and evaluating the Group’s constant business results, and therefore results are provided in non-GAAP base. This adjustment and exclusion include the amortization of intangible assets recognized from acquisitions, other PPA (purchase price allocation) adjustments and costs relating to acquisitions, stock-based compensation, as well as other non-recurring expenses and income the Group believes to be applicable.

The consolidated forecasts for the six months ending June 30, 2021 are calculated by combining the forecasts for the three months ending June 30, 2021, to the financial results of the three months ended March 31, 2021. The consolidated forecasts for the six months ending June 30, 2021 are calculated at the rate of 106 yen per USD and 127 yen per Euro.
