For the year ending December 31, 2017, while the Group expects to post net income (net income attributable to shareholders of parent company), the Group regrettably suspended year-end dividend payment for this period.

The Group will divert its retained earnings for strategic investment opportunities that will enable the Group to respond to rapid environmental changes to thrive in the global marketplace, and will aim to increase shareholder profit by improving corporate value. Based on a long-term standpoint, the Group aims to realize stable and sustained growth in profits to allow dividends to be reinstated.

Refer to Renesas Electronics' earnings report “Renesas Electronics Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2017” issued on November 2, 2017 for more details.

The statements with respect to the financial outlook of the Group are forward-looking statements involving risks and uncertainties. The Company cautions you in advance that actual results may vary materially from such forward-looking statements due to several important factors.
