Fourth quarter semiconductor sales were 206.5 billion yen, up 7.4% quarter-on-quarter. On a year-on-year basis, semiconductor sales increased by 28.0%, which can be attributed mainly to: the solid growth of the Renesas standalone sales, which excludes the sales of Intersil from the entire Renesas Group sales; the integration of Intersil and the dissipation of the impact from the Kumamoto earthquake that occurred in 2016. Automotive sales increased by 14.7% year-on-year on a pro-forma basis, driven by strong demand for both Automotive Control and Automotive Information products. Industrial and Broad-based sales increased year-on-year on a pro-forma basis by 23.5% and 17.2%, respectively, mainly due to the strong demand for factory automation (FA), home appliance and analog semiconductor devices.

Non-GAAP gross margin in the fourth quarter was 47.9%, 1.6 points above the Company’s guidance, mainly due to inventory revaluation and increased sales. On a sequential basis, gross margin increased by 0.2 point and improved by 2.3 points year-on-year, benefiting from the significant increase in both sales and production as well as integration of Intersil.
