CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS:

The statements in this press release with respect to the plans, strategies and forecasts of NEC Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively "NEC") are forward-looking statements involving risks and uncertainties. NEC cautions in advance you that actual results could differ materially from such forward-looking statements due to several factors. The important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements include, but are not limited to, general economic conditions in NEC's markets, which are primarily Japan, North America, Asia and Europe; demand for, and competitive pricing pressure on, NEC's products and services in the marketplace; NEC's ability to continue to win acceptance of its products and services in these highly competitive markets; and movements in currency exchange rates, particularly the rate between the yen and the U.S. dollar. Among other factors, a worsening of the world economy resulting from the downturn in the IT and telecommunications industries, a worsening of financial conditions in the world markets, and a deterioration in the domestic and overseas stock markets, would cause actual results to differ from the projected results forecast.

In cases where the information contained in this press release falls within the definition of "Material Information" under Paragraph 2 of Article 166 of the Securities and Exchange Law of Japan, if you (and directors or employees of your company if the content of this press release comes to their knowledge in connection with their duties) read this press release before the time of "Publication" (which is defined under the Securities and Exchange Law of Japan and its Enforcement Ordinance as twelve hours after its release; i.e., approximately 3:30 am on April 25, 2003 (JST)), you (and directors or employees of your company if the content of this press release comes to their knowledge in connection with their duties) may be prohibited from purchasing, selling, or making other transactions of shares of stock or other securities of NEC before the time of Publication.
