CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS:
The statements in this material 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 you in advance 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; fluctuating 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; NEC's ability to expand into foreign markets such as China; regulatory change and uncertainty and potential legal liability relating to NEC's businesses and operations; 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 forward-looking statements, including management's targets.

You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by NEC speaks only as of the date on which NEC makes it. New risks and uncertainties come up from time to time, and it is impossible for NEC to predict these events or how they may affect NEC. In light of these risks and uncertainties, you should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement might not occur. Therefore, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Finally, NEC cautions you that the statements made in this material are not an offer of securities for sale. The securities may not be offered or sold in any jurisdiction in which registration is required absent registration or an exemption from registration under the applicable securities laws. For example, any public offering of securities to be made in the United States must be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and made by means of an English language prospectus that contains detailed information about NEC and management, as well as NEC's financial statements.

In cases where the information contained in this material 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 material comes to their knowledge in connection with their duty) read this material 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 3:00 AM on January 30, 2004 (JST)), you (and directors or employees of your company if the content of this material 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.
