  Nine-Month Results

      Decreased as a Result of Weak Sales in Digital Consumer Products -

Business Wire

OSAKA, Japan -- February 1, 2013

Panasonic Corporation (Panasonic)(NYSE:PC)(TOKYO:6752) today reported its
consolidated financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended
December 31, 2012, of the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 (fiscal
2013).

Consolidated Third-quarter Results

Consolidated group sales for the third quarter decreased by 8% to 1,801.5
billion yen, compared with 1,960.2 billion yen for the third quarter of the
year ended March 31, 2012 (fiscal 2012). Of the consolidated group total,
domestic sales amounted to 917.2 billion yen, down by 12% from 1,043.8 billion
yen and overseas sales decreased to 884.3 billion yen, down by 3% from 916.4
billion yen.

During the third quarter under review, despite signs of economic improvement
in the U.S. and China, the global economy stayed in a moderate recovery under
uncertainty due to the financial issues in Europe and the U.S. The electronics
industry continued to be under severe condition with weak demand in digital
products and devices. However, there were signs of improvement in business
environment for Japanese companies such as weakening Japanese yen foreign
exchange rates against the dollar and the Euro from extreme yen appreciation,
and the recovering stock market in Japan.

Operating profit^1 improved to 34.6 billion yen from a loss of 8.1 billion yen
a year ago. In the meantime, pre-tax income was 9.3 billion yen compared with
a loss of 191.2 billion yen, and net income attributable to Panasonic
Corporation amounted to 61.4 billion yen compared with a loss of 197.6 billion
yen a year ago.

^1 For information about operating profit (loss), see Note 2 of the Notes to
consolidated financial statements.

Consolidated Nine-month Results

Consolidated group sales for nine months ended December 31, 2012 decreased by
9% to 5,439.7 billion yen, compared with 5,965.4 billion yen in the same
period of fiscal 2012. Despite stable sales in car-related products thanks to
the market recovery, this sales decrease was due mainly to weak demand for
flat-panel TVs and BD recorders in Japan. The company also put emphasis on
profitability rather than on sales volume. Domestic sales amounted to 2,795.4
billion yen, down by 9% from 3,080.2 billion yen a year ago, while overseas
sales decreased by 8% to 2,644.3 billion yen, down from 2,885.2 billion yen a
year ago.

The company's operating profit for the nine months increased to 122.0 billion
yen, from 39.5 billion yen a year ago. Despite sales decrease, this result was
due mainly to fixed cost reductions and streamlining material costs. On the
other hand, pre-tax loss totaled 269.4 billion yen, compared with a loss of
350.5 billion yen a year ago. This was due mainly to business restructuring
expenses recorded in the second-quarter, including impairment losses of
goodwill and intangible assets in other deductions in solar, consumer-use
lithium-ion batteries and mobile phone businesses. Taking into consideration
significant sales decreases in Japan and other factors, in accordance with
U.S. GAAP, the company increased the valuation allowances to deferred tax
assets in Panasonic Corporation and Panasonic Mobile Communications Co., Ltd.,
and incurred provision for income taxes of 412.5 billion yen, in the
second-quarter. Accordingly, Net loss attributable to Panasonic Corporation
amounted to 623.8 billion yen compared with a loss of 333.8 billion yen a year
ago.

Consolidated Nine-month Breakdown by Segment

The company's nine-month consolidated sales and profits by segment with
previous year comparisons are summarized as follows:

AVC Networks

Sales decreased by 23% to 1,078.9 billion yen from 1,402.1 billion yen a year
ago. This result was due mainly to significant sales decline in flat-panel
TVs, BD recorders and digital cameras. Segment profit significantly improved
to 21.6 billion yen, compared with a loss of 40.5 billion yen a year ago, due
mainly to fixed cost reductions and restructuring benefits.

Appliances

Sales increased by 1% to 1,197.1 billion yen from 1,187.4 billion yen a year
ago. Despite sales decrease in air conditioners, this result was due mainly to
sales increases in refrigerators and washing machines. Segment profit
decreased to 70.3 billion yen, compared with 76.4 billion yen a year ago, due
mainly to sales decrease in air conditioners.

Systems & Communications

Sales decreased by 15% to 509.8 billion yen from 599.9 billion yen a year ago,
due mainly to sales decreases in mobile phones and system-related equipment
such as compact multifunction printers and private branch exchange (PBX)
products. Segment loss amounted to 14.0 billion yen due mainly to sales
decrease, compared with a loss of 2.3 billion yen a year ago.

Eco Solutions

Overall sales increased to 1,140.1 billion yen from 1,136.6 billion yen a year
ago. Despite sales decrease in solar photovoltaic systems in Europe, this
result was due mainly to sales increases in the lighting business including
LED and the energy system business including wiring devices. Segment profit
increased to 42.7 billion yen, compared with 38.5 billion yen a year ago, due
mainly to streamlining costs.

Automotive Systems

Sales increased by 28% to 571.7 billion yen from 446.8 billion yen a year ago,
due mainly to strong sales in car AVC equipment and car navigation systems
globally. Segment profit significantly improved to 11.9 billion yen from 3.2
billion yen a year ago, due mainly to sales increase.

Industrial Devices

Sales decreased by 5% to 1,030.2 billion yen from 1,085.5 billion yen a year
ago. This result was due mainly to sales decreases in optical pickups and
semiconductors. Segment profit significantly improved to 17.9 billion yen,
compared with a loss of 13.7 billion yen a year ago, due mainly to fixed cost
reductions.

Energy

Sales decreased by 6% to 434.8 billion yen from 461.8 billion yen a year ago.
Despite significant sales increase in automotive-use batteries, this result
was due mainly to sales decreases in consumer-use lithium-ion batteries, and
solar photovoltaic systems in Europe. Segment profit improved to 6.4 billion
yen compared with a loss of 16.7 billion yen a year ago, due mainly to fixed
cost reductions and streamlining material costs.

Other

Sales decreased by 28% to 1,012.9 billion yen from 1,403.5 billion yen a year
ago. This result was due mainly to sales decrease owing to the SANYO-related
business transfers implemented in fiscal 2012. Segment profit decreased to
11.3 billion yen from 15.7 billion yen a year ago, due mainly to sales
decrease of Manufacturing Solutions Company.

Consolidated Financial Condition

Net cash provided by operating activities for nine months ended December 31,
2012 amounted to 82.2 billion yen, compared with an outflow of 10.4 billion
yen a year ago. This was due to the improving operating profit, since increase
in valuation allowances to deferred tax assets and impairment losses of
goodwill and intangible assets do not impact on cash flow. Net cash used in
investing activities amounted to 49.8 billion yen, a decrease of 177.8 billion
yen from a year ago. This was due primarily to a decrease in capital
expenditures and an increase in proceeds from disposals of investments. Net
cash used in financing activities amounted to 104.1 billion yen, an increase
of 88.3 billion yen from a year ago, due mainly to the issuance of short-term
bonds in fiscal 2012. Taking into consideration exchange rate fluctuations,
cash and cash equivalents totaled 525.3 billion yen as of December 31, 2012, a
decrease of 49.1 billion yen, compared with the end of the last fiscal year.

The company's consolidated total assets as of December 31, 2012 decreased by
856.9 billion yen to 5,744.2 billion yen from the end of fiscal 2012. This was
due mainly to decreases in other assets and other current assets affected by
the impairment losses of goodwill and intangible assets, and the increase in
valuation allowances to deferred tax assets, as well as decreases in
investments and advances affected by the disposals of investments. Panasonic
Corporation shareholders' equity decreased by 589.1 billion yen, compared with
March 31, 2012, to 1,340.7 billion yen. Despite an improvement in accumulated
other comprehensive income (loss) along with yen depreciation, this was
primarily due to decrease in retained earnings according to net loss
attributable to Panasonic Corporation. Adding Noncontrolling interests to
Panasonic Corporation shareholders' equity, total equity decreased by 594.7
billion yen to 1,382.9 billion yen compared with March 31, 2012.

Notes to consolidated financial statements:

      The company's consolidated financial statements are prepared in
1.   conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S.
      GAAP).

      In order to be consistent with generally accepted financial reporting
      practices in Japan, operating profit, a non-GAAP measure, is presented
      as net sales less cost of sales and selling, general and administrative
2.    expenses. The company believes that this is useful to investors in
      comparing the company's financial results with those of other Japanese
      companies. Please refer to the accompanying consolidated statement of
      operations and Note 3 for the U.S. GAAP reconciliation.

      In accordance with U.S. GAAP, expenses associated with the
3.    implementation of early retirement programs at certain domestic and
      overseas companies and the impairment loss on goodwill and fixed assets
      are included as part of operating profit in the statement of operations.

      In June 2011, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2011-05,
      "Presentation of Comprehensive Income." Accordingly, the company adopted
4.    ASU 2011-05 from fiscal 2013 and presents the consolidated statement of
      comprehensive income (loss) following the consolidated statement of
      operations.

      In other income (deductions), the company incurred expenses associated
5.    with the implementation of early retirement programs of certain domestic
      and overseas companies.

6.    The impairment losses of goodwill and intangible assets are included in
      Other income (deductions), net.

      The impairment losses of goodwill and intangible assets, and an increase
7.    in the valuation allowances to deferred tax assets are included in Other
      of cash flows from operating activities.

      Diluted net income (loss) per share attributable to Panasonic
8.    Corporation common shareholders has been omitted because the company did
      not have potential common shares that were outstanding for the period.

      Regarding consolidated segment profit (loss), expenses for basic
9.    research and administrative expenses at the corporate headquarters level
      are treated as unallocatable expenses for each segment, and are included
      in Corporate and eliminations.

10.   Panasonic Electronic Devices Co., Ltd. and Panasonic Electronic Devices
      Japan Co., Ltd., were absorbed by the company on April 1, 2012.

      Effective from the beginning of fiscal 2013, investments and
      depreciation expenses in molding dies are included in "Capital
      investment" and "Depreciation (tangible assets)," respectively.
11.   Accordingly, the amounts of "Depreciation (tangible assets)" and
      "Capital investment" of supplementary information on consolidated
      statements of operations for fiscal 2012 are changed. The related
      amounts of the consolidated statements of cash flows and consolidated
      balance sheets for fiscal 2012 are also changed.

      The company's segments are classified according to a business
12.   domain-based management system, which focuses on global consolidated
      management by each business domain company, in order to ensure
      consistency of its internal management structure and disclosure.

      The company restructured its Group organization on January 1, 2012,
      resulting in the number of reportable segments from six to eight.
      Accordingly, segment information for the nine months ended December 31,
      2011 has been reclassified to conform to the presentation for the nine
      months ended December 31, 2012.

      Other segment consists of Healthcare Company, Manufacturing Solutions
      Company, PanaHome Corporation and others.

13.   Number of consolidated companies: 547 (including parent company)

14.   Number of associated companies under the equity method: 101
