Renesas Electronics Announces Executive Personnel Changes and New Organization Structure

Accelerate Realization of “One Global Renesas” Following IDT
Acquisition with a Two Business Unit Structure by Establishing the IoT
and Infrastructure Business Unit

TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As announced on March 22, 2019 PDT, March 23 , 2019 JST, in the press
release entitled “Renesas and IDT Announce Final Regulatory Approval
for Renesas’ Proposed Acquisition of IDT,”
Renesas Electronics
Corporation (TSE: 6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor
solutions, expects the acquisition of Integrated Device Technology, Inc.
(“IDT”) to close on March 29, 2019 PDT, March 30, 2019 JST. Following
this move, Renesas will accelerate its efforts towards the realization
of “One Global Renesas” with the appointment of new executive personnel
and a change in its organizational structure. The changes to executive
personnel and an organization moving to a two-business unit structure
will be implemented step-by-step, as detailed below, with the new
organizational structure scheduled to be in place by July 2019.

1. Background to New Executive Personnel and Change in Organizational
Structure

Aimed at achieving stable and sustainable growth in the rapidly
changing, intensely competitive semiconductor market and becoming a
global leading supplier of semiconductor solutions in the focus
segments, Renesas has been working to expand and strengthen its business
portfolio. As part of this initiative, in February 2017, Renesas
acquired Intersil Corporation (“Intersil”) and its business in analog
semiconductor devices, particularly power management ICs. Furthermore,
with the completion of the IDT acquisition, Renesas will gain IDT’s
expertise in analog semiconductor devices for applications centered on
sensors, connectivity, and wireless power, extending its portfolio still
further.

Following the acquisition of Intersil, Renesas pursued the integration
of Intersil into its business operations to move beyond its
Japan-centric management approach and advance towards the goal of
realizing “One Global Renesas” by adopting a management approach based
on a cross-regional, global organizational structure. The IDT
acquisition will further accelerate this process, and in order to assure
a smooth business integration transition, Dr. Sailesh Chittipeddi, IDT’s
current Executive Vice President, Global Operations and Chief Technology
Officer of IDT, will assume the concurrent posts of President and CEO of
IDT and Executive Vice President of Renesas effective March 30, 2019.

Additionally, in order to efficiently and rapidly carry out the
integration of IDT’s business operations, Renesas will merge the current
Industrial Solution Business Unit (“IBU”) and Broad-based Solution
Business Unit (“BBU”), which oversee businesses in a wide range of
fields, including non-automotive industrial and infrastructure, to form
the new IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit (“IIBU”), effective July 1,
2019. Together with the current Automotive Solution Business Unit
(“ABU”), which oversees the automotive business, the IIBU will
consolidate its position as the second pillar of Renesas’ business model
moving forwards. Dr. Sailesh Chittipeddi will lead IIBU, where he will
work to accelerate the generation of synergies between digital and
analog through consolidation of IBU and BBU as well as IDT’s
integration. The transition to this new organizational structure based
on two business units, ABU and IIBU, will enable Renesas to efficiently
and swiftly focus its resources on products and solutions with high
profit ratios and an ability to generate cash, giving rise to solutions
that are both highly competitive and provide high added value, and
realizing future growth as “One Global Renesas.”
