PHOENIX, Ariz. – May 4, 2011 – ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN) today announced that total revenues in the first quarter of 2011 were $870.6 million, an increase of more than 50 percent from the fourth quarter of 2010.  As previously announced, the company completed its acquisition of SANYO Semiconductor on January 1, 2011.  During the first quarter of 2011, the company reported GAAP net income of $74.8 million, or $0.16 per fully diluted share.  The first quarter 2011 GAAP net income included net charges of $46.4 million, or $0.10 per fully diluted share, from special items.  The special item details can be found in the attached schedules.  During the fourth quarter of 2010, the company reported a GAAP net income of $61.0 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share.  Further information, including the unaudited results of operations for SANYO Semiconductor for the first quarter of 2011, is provided in the financial tables attached to this release.   

First quarter 2011 results were negatively impacted from reduced production and increased expenses incurred as a result of the Japan earthquake and resulting tsunami.  There were production disruptions but only limited physical damage to our Japanese manufacturing facilities post the March 11 Japan earthquake and tsunami.  While revenue was within our original guidance provided on February 3, 2011, we currently estimate that production disruptions negatively impacted our net income approximately $10 million in the first quarter of 2011.  Full stabilization and recovery of our operations in Japan is progressing well.  Of ON Semiconductor’s six manufacturing facilities in Japan, five came back to full production capacity and the sixth factory is ramping towards full production. 

First quarter 2011 non-GAAP net income was $121.2 million, or $0.27 per share on a fully diluted basis, which included approximately $0.06 per share on a fully diluted basis from SANYO Semiconductor.  Fourth quarter 2010 non-GAAP net income was $99.2 million, or $0.22 per share on a fully diluted basis.  A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures (and other non-GAAP measures used elsewhere in this release, such as non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP gross profit and adjusted EBITDA) to the company’s most directly comparable measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP are set forth in the attached schedules and on our website at

On a mix-adjusted basis, average selling prices for historical ON Semiconductor (excluding SANYO Semiconductor) in the first quarter of 2011 were approximately flat when compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  Total company GAAP gross margin in the first quarter was 27.8 percent.  Total company GAAP gross margin in the first quarter included a net charge of approximately $70.9 million, or approximately 820 basis points, from special items.  Total company non-GAAP gross margin in the first quarter was 36.0 percent.       

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2011 was $167.3 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $145.4 million.        

“ON Semiconductor continued its transformation in the first quarter of 2011 with the acquisition of SANYO Semiconductor,” said Keith Jackson, ON Semiconductor president and CEO.  “In January, we closed the acquisition of SANYO Semiconductor and in our first quarter of operating the business, SANYO Semiconductor positively contributed to our earnings.  This transaction broadens our product portfolio, adding new capabilities from microcontrollers and custom application specific integrated solutions (ASICs) to integrated power modules and motor control devices.  In addition, in February we closed the acquisition of the CMOS Image Sensor Business Unit from Cypress Semiconductor Corporation which positions ON Semiconductor as a leading supplier of ultra-high-speed CMOS image sensors.” 

“While total company revenues at the mid-point of our guidance for the second quarter of 2011 are anticipated to be up slightly from the first quarter of 2011, revenues, gross profit and earnings will be negatively impacted by the supply chain disruptions, reduced production and increased expenses in Japan as result of the earthquake and tsunami,” Jackson said.  “Based on our current assessment, we believe the effects of the earthquake and tsunami could negatively impact total company sales by approximately $50 million and gross profit and earnings in excess of $30 million in the second quarter of 2011.  This anticipated impact is already included in our guidance below.  Longer term we believe we are well positioned in Japan as the country rebuilds from the tragic events of March 11.”    

“Our second quarter 2011 outlook includes SANYO Semiconductor.  Based upon product booking trends, backlog levels and estimated turns levels, we anticipate that total ON Semiconductor revenues will be approximately $860 to $900 million in the second quarter of 2011,” Jackson said.  “Backlog levels for the second quarter of 2011 represent over 90 percent of our anticipated second quarter 2011 revenues.  We expect that average selling prices for the second quarter of 2011 will be flat to down approximately one percent when compared to the first quarter of 2011.  The non-GAAP outlook for the second quarter of 2011 includes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $14 million.”

* Convertible Notes, Non-cash Interest Expense are included in FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 470 Debt.
** Fully diluted share count can vary for, among other things, the actual exercise of options or restricted stock units, the incremental dilutive shares from all of the company’s convertible senior subordinated notes, and the repurchase or the issuance of stock or the sale of treasury shares.  Please refer to the table on our website for potential changes to the Fully Diluted Share Count.  This table can be found on our website at under Investors - Investor Relations, Annual Reports / Financial Releases.  
*** Special Items can include: restructuring, asset impairments and other, net; expensing of appraised inventory fair market value (FMV) step up; amortization of intangibles; goodwill impairments; income tax adjustments to approximate cash taxes; non-cash interest expense and certain other special items as necessary.
**** Regulation G and other provisions of the securities laws regulate the use of financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP.  We believe these non-GAAP measures provide important supplemental information to investors. We use these measures, together with GAAP measures, for internal managerial purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. However, we do not, and you should not, rely on non-GAAP financial measures alone as measures of our performance. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that – when taken together with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures that we also provide in our releases – provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business.  Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names.
