ON Semiconductor Reports First Quarter 2006 Results; Betters Previously Announced Guidance

PHOENIX—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 27, 2006— ON Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: ONNN) today announced that total revenues in the first quarter of 2006 were $334.0 million, a decrease of approximately 2 percent from the fourth quarter of 2005. During the first quarter of 2006, the company reported net income of $40.4 million. Fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2006 were $0.12 per share. First quarter 2006 results include approximately $1.9 million associated with stock-based compensation expense due to our adoption of FAS 123(R) Share Based Payment, and included a $2.3 million investment gain shown in other income. During the fourth quarter of 2005, the company reported net income of $43.8 million, or $0.07 per share, on a fully diluted basis, which included a deemed dividend charge of approximately $0.06 per share, associated with a premium, in the form of inducement shares, for the conversion of the Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock into common stock.

On a mix-adjusted basis, average selling prices in the first quarter of 2006 were down approximately 1 percent from the fourth quarter of 2005. The company's gross margin in the first quarter was 35.2 percent, an increase of approximately 20 basis points, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2005.

EBITDA for the first quarter of 2006 was $76.9 million, compared to EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2005 of $76.8 million, which included a $0.8 million in restructuring, asset impairments and other benefit. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the company's net income and net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP is set out in the attached schedule.

"Our revenue, while down sequentially in the first quarter of 2006 due to seasonality in our consumer related end markets, grew by over 10 percent, compared to the first quarter of 2005, and gross margins grew by 340 basis points," said Keith Jackson, ON Semiconductor president and CEO. "As we enter the second quarter of 2006, we continue to focus our team on supporting strong customer demand, and developing and winning power solution designs in key consumer platforms. We anticipate completing the purchase of LSI Logic's Gresham, Ore., wafer fabrication facility in May, as stated in our April 6 press release, and believe the Gresham facility is another step in our efforts to provide our customers with state-of-the-art high-performance analog and digital power solutions. In April, the company successfully raised approximately $75 million, net of expenses, through a common stock offering of approximately 11 million shares, to pay a portion of the purchase price of the Gresham facility."


"Not including any increased revenue associated with completing the purchase of the Gresham facility, and based upon booking trends, backlog levels and estimated turns levels, we anticipate that total revenues will be approximately $350 to $355 million in the second quarter of 2006," Jackson said. "Backlog levels at the beginning of the second quarter were up from backlog levels at the beginning of the first quarter of 2006, and represented well over 90 percent of our anticipated second quarter 2006 revenues. We expect that average selling prices for the second quarter of 2006 will be flat to slightly up sequentially. We also expect that gross margins will continue to grow by between 50 to 100 basis points sequentially in the second quarter of 2006. Beginning in the first quarter of 2006, we were required to expense stock-based compensation. This is in accordance with the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R) Share Based Payment. We currently expect this expense to be approximately $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2006."


ON Semiconductor will hold a conference call for the financial community at 5 p.m. Eastern time (ET) today to discuss the first quarter 2006 results. The company will provide a real-time audio broadcast of the teleconference on the Investor Relations page of its Web site at http://www.onsemi.com. The webcast will be available for approximately 30 days following the conference call.
