The Kumamoto Earthquakes became pricey for Renesas

Due to impacts of the Kumamoto Earthquake that occurred after April 14, 2016, Renesas has had some difficulties to disclose the forecast of consolidated results for the company's first quarter 2016.
The company was suppose to have announced its forecast for the three months ending June 30, 2016, however, at the time Renesas was disclosing its financial results for the year ended March 31, 2016. For that reason, Renesas decided to postpone the announcement of the forecast.

Renesas is now disclosing the consolidated financial forecasts and recording of special loss for the three months ending June 30, 2016.
