Regarding the recording of gain from the transfer of a fixed asset

Tokyo, October 29, 2020 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) resolved at the board of directors meeting held on October 29, 2020 to conclude a transfer and lease (sale and leaseback) contract with Hulic Co., Ltd. ("Hulic") regarding the land of the Sagamihara Plant owned by NEC. As a result, NEC expects to record a gain from the transfer in the financial statements for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021.

  1. About the transfer
    In recent years at the Sagamihara Plant, the usage ratio by companies outside of the NEC Group has increased and the usage pattern has changed significantly, making it necessary to review how the business site should be operated. Under these circumstances, in order to effectively utilize management resources and strengthen its financial position, NEC reviewed this asset and decided to transfer it. For the time being, through the leaseback, business conducted at NEC’s Sagamihara Plant will continue as before.
