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 third quarter of 2014 were down approximately two percent when compared to the second quarter of 2014. Total company GAAP gross margin in the third quarter was 34.1 percent and total company non-GAAP gross margin in the third quarter was 35.6 percent. For the third quarter of 2014, GAAP operating margin was 6.9 percent, whereas non-GAAP operating margin was 13.0 percent.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2014 was $157.8 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $146.5 million.

“Our third quarter results and outlook for the fourth quarter were impacted by a slowdown in orders from certain geographies and end-markets," said Keith Jackson, president and CEO of ON Semiconductor. "However, during the past few weeks, we have noticed a recovery in orders for shipment in first half of 2015. Despite the recent slowdown, our design win momentum in automotive, industrial, and smartphone end-markets remains strong, and we believe that we remain well positioned to benefit from long term secular trends in these markets.

"Initial customer reception of our recent acquisitions of Truesense and Aptina Imaging has exceeded our expectations. These acquisitions have created tremendous new opportunities for the combined company and we are increasingly upbeat about the potential of these acquisitions, especially in the industrial and automotive end-markets."


“Based upon product booking trends, backlog levels, and estimated turns levels, we anticipate that total ON Semiconductor revenue will be approximately $835 million to $875 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.” Jackson said. “Backlog levels for the fourth quarter of 2014 represent approximately 80 to 85 percent of our anticipated fourth quarter 2014 revenue. Average selling prices for the fourth quarter of 2014 are expected to be down approximately one to two percent when compared to the third quarter of 2014. The outlook for the fourth quarter of 2014 includes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $11 million to $13 million."

**** 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.
