Background to the revision of full-year forecasts

Renesas announced the following revisions to its forecasts for the fiscal year
ending March 31, 2013: net sales are expected to total 820.0 billion yen, 48.0
billion yen down from the previous forecast (announced on August 2, 2012);
semiconductor sales are expected to total 760.0 billion yen, 51.0 billion yen
down from the previous forecast.

As factors including prolonged debt worries in Europe, further market slowdown
in China and other emerging economies as well as increased uncertainty of
Japan-China relations might impact on demand, Renesas forecasts its sales to
be less than the original expectations and has made a downward revision to its
forecasts for both net sales and semiconductor sales. The company expects the
sales from three product areas, MCUs, analog and power (A&P) devices and
system-on-Chip (SoC) solutions; to decline from the previous forecast.

Although there might be the anticipation of the reduction of the incomes with
decline of semiconductor sales, Renesas has not changed its forecasts for
operating income, ordinary income and net income from the figure announced on
August 2, 2012, by streamlining production and further expense reduction

The consolidated financial forecasts for the second half of the fiscal year
ending March 31, 2013 are based on the rate of 81 yen per USD and 105 yen per

financial outlook of Renesas Electronics and its consolidated subsidiaries
