2. Background to the difference

Renesas announced the following financial results for the six months
ended June 30, 2018: net sales were 389.4 billion yen, 7.4 billion yen
up from the previous forecast (announced on May 11, 2018); semiconductor
sales were 381.1 billion yen, 6.4 billion yen up from the previous
forecast. This was mainly due to better-than-expected automotive sales
compared to the forecast and the continuing depreciation of the yen
against the US dollar and the Euro. Both operating and ordinary income
improved from the previous forecasts mainly owing to
better-than-expected sales and cost-containment effects. Net income
attributable to shareholders of parent company was also better than the
company's estimates, mainly from the reversal of provision for
contingent loss related to the lawsuit in which the Company's U.S.
subsidiary has been named as a defendant, in addition to an increase in
ordinary income.

Details that explain Renesas' announcement of financial results for the
six months ended June 30, 2018 are disclosed in the Renesas press
release: ‘‘Renesas Electronics Reports Financial Results for the
Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2018
'' issued on July 31, 2018.
