TOKYO, July 30 (Reuters) - Japanese chipmaker NEC Electronics Corp said on Wednesday it aims for an operating profit of more than 3 billion yen ($27.79 million) in April-September, and that it aims to attain a net profit for the full year.
NEC Electronics, which is 70 percent owned by electronics group NEC Corp , kept its official six-month operating profit forecast unchanged at 3 billion yen, from 1.9 billion yen the previous year.
The company, which makes chips for Nintendo Co Ltd's game console Wii and forMotor Corp's Lexus luxury car, kept its full-year forecast for zero net profit and a 10 billion yen operating profit, which are both above market estimates.
The market consensus is for a 1.1 billion yen net loss and an operating profit of 7.7 billion yen, according to 11 analysts polled by Reuters Estimates. (Reporting by Mayumi Negishi; Editing by Chris Gallagher)
