TOKYO, Japan — Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that it was named “Issuer of the Year” at DEALWATCH AWARDS 2021. The award held by Refinitiv Japan, a subsidiary of the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) acknowledges issuers that made outstanding debt and equity issues in the capital markets.

Renesas was recognized for its significant capital increase and secondary offering of shares aimed for acquisitory purposes, and first-ever major issuance of senior notes denominated in US dollars including green bonds. The honour of “Issuer of the Year” was awarded to Renesas for “strengthening and expanding its investor base through intrepid financial strategy”.

In June 2021, Renesas conducted the issuance of new shares and secondary offering of shares to acquire Dialog Semiconductor Plc, a U.K.-headquartered analog semiconductor supplier. Furthermore, the company issued its first series of US dollar-denominated senior notes to diversify and reinforce its sources of financing. These notes included green bonds, proceeds from which will be used solely for projects expected to contribute to the global environment.

DEALWATCH AWARDS was inaugurated in 1995 aiming to foster and enhance the Japanese capital markets. Winners are selected based on a range of rigorous criteria, such as appropriate pricing, price growth in the secondary market, contribution and ingenuity toward the development of capital markets.

As a responsible global enterprise, Renesas will continue its tireless efforts to sustainably enhance its corporate value.
