ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN)

For the second quarter of 2014, highlights include:
  • Total revenues of $757.6 million
  • GAAP gross margin of 36.0 percent
  • Non-GAAP gross margin of 36.2 percent
  • GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.20
  • Non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.20

ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving energy efficient innovation, today announced that total revenues in the second quarter of 2014 were $757.6 million, up approximately 7.2 percent compared to the first quarter of 2014. During the second quarter of 2014, the company reported GAAP net income of $88.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share. The second quarter 2014 GAAP net income was negatively impacted by approximately $1.7 million of special items. The complete special items detail can be found in the attached schedules.

Second quarter 2014 non-GAAP net income was $89.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $75.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures (and other non-GAAP measures used elsewhere in this release) 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 http://www.onsemi.com. Additional information on revenue by end market, region, distribution channel and business unit, and share count can be found on the "Investors" section of our website.

On a mix-adjusted basis, average selling prices for ON Semiconductor in the second quarter of 2014 were down slightly more than one percent when compared to the first quarter of 2014. Total company GAAP gross margin in the second quarter was 36.0 percent and total company non-GAAP gross margin in the second quarter was 36.2 percent. For the second quarter of 2014, GAAP operating margin was 10.8 percent, whereas non-GAAP operating margin was 13.4 percent.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $146.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 was $131.0 million.

“Our strong revenue growth and margin expansion in the second quarter clearly point to our momentum in key markets and improving operating performance," said Keith Jackson, president and CEO of ON Semiconductor. "Our strategy of focusing on automotive, industrial and smartphone end-markets is yielding results. Our revenue in these markets, which comprise approximately 65 percent of our total revenue, grew by more than 10 percent year-over-year during the first half of the year, well ahead of our stated goal of annual growth in the mid to high single digit percentage point range.

"Revenue growth along with an optimal cost structure and additional benefits from previously announced restructuring measures should enable us to generate strong operating leverage going forward. With our recent acquisition of Truesense, the pending acquisition of Aptina Imaging and recently announced foundry partnership with Fujitsu Semiconductor, we are well positioned for further growth in our revenue and earnings."

THIRD QUARTER 2014 OUTLOOK

“Based upon product booking trends, backlog levels and estimated turns levels, we anticipate that total ON Semiconductor revenue will be approximately $765 to $795 million in the third quarter of 2014,” Jackson said. “Backlog levels for the third quarter of 2014 represent approximately 80 to 85 percent of our anticipated third quarter 2014 revenue. Average selling prices for the third quarter of 2014 are expected to be down approximately one to two percent when compared to the second quarter of 2014. The outlook for the third quarter of 2014 includes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $11 to $13 million. Our guidance for the third quarter of 2014 does not include any contribution from our pending acquisition of Aptina, Inc."

The following table outlines ON Semiconductor's projected third quarter of 2014 GAAP and non-GAAP outlook.

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.

* Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, interest income, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense and special items. We use the adjusted EBITDA measure for internal managerial evaluation purposes, as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons and as a performance metric for the vesting/releasing of certain of our performance-based equity awards. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Regulation G and other provisions of the securities laws regulate the use of financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. We believe this measure provides important supplemental information to investors. 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 press 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 non-GAAP financial measures used by our company or other companies, even if they have similar names.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under GAAP, ON Semiconductor uses non-GAAP measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP results to exclude items related to the amortization of intangible assets, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, expensing of appraised inventory fair market value step-up, inventory valuation adjustments, purchased in-process research and development expenses, restructuring, asset impairments and other, net, goodwill impairment charges, gains and losses on debt prepayment, non-cash interest expense, their related tax effects, actuarial (gains) losses on pension plans and other pension benefits, third party acquisition related costs, and certain other special items, as necessary. Management does not consider these charges in evaluating the core operational activities of ON Semiconductor. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate ON Semiconductor’s current performance. In addition, we believe that most analysts covering ON Semiconductor use the non-GAAP measures as well. Given management’s and other relevant use of these non-GAAP measures, ON Semiconductor believes these measures are important to investors in understanding ON Semiconductor’s current and future operating results as seen through the eyes of management. In addition, management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in enabling them to better assess changes in ON Semiconductor’s core business across different time periods. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP financial data and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. 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.

Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Gross Margin

The use of non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin allows management to evaluate, among other things, the gross margin and gross profit of the company’s core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of non-cash items including, generally speaking, expensing of appraised inventory fair market value step-up and amortization of intangible assets. In addition, it is an important component of management’s internal performance measurement and incentive and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets, obtaining targets, and forecasting future results. Management presents this non-GAAP financial measure to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to the direct costs of revenue of ON Semiconductor’s core businesses.

Non-GAAP Operating Profit and Operating Margin

The use of non-GAAP operating profit and operating margin allows management to evaluate, among other things, the operating margin and operating profit of the company’s core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of non-cash items including, generally speaking, expensing of appraised inventory fair market value step-up, amortization of intangible assets, third party acquisition related costs, and restructuring charges. In addition, it is an important component of management’s internal performance measurement and incentive and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets, obtaining targets, and forecasting future results. Management presents this non-GAAP financial measure to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to the direct costs of operations of ON Semiconductor’s core businesses.

Non-GAAP Net Income and Net Income Per Share

The use of non-GAAP net income and net income per share allows management to evaluate the operating results of ON Semiconductor’s core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of non-cash items including, generally speaking, the amortization of intangible assets, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, expensing of appraised inventory fair market value step-up, purchased in-process research and development expenses, restructuring, asset impairments and other, net, goodwill impairment charges, gains and losses on debt prepayment, non-cash interest expense, their related tax effects, actuarial (gains) losses on pension plans and other pension benefits, third party acquisition related costs, and certain other special items, as necessary. In addition, they are important components of management’s internal performance measurement and incentive and reward process as they are used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets, obtaining targets, and forecasting future results. Management presents these non-GAAP financial measures to enable investors and analysts to understand the results of operations of ON Semiconductor’s core businesses and, to the extent comparable, to compare our results of operations on a more consistent basis against that of other companies in our industry.
