This acquisition will expand and strengthen ON Semiconductor’s product portfolio, adding new capabilities ranging from microcontrollers and custom Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) to integrated power modules and motor control devices for the consumer, automotive and industrial end-markets.
“Having completed seven acquisitions, ON Semiconductor has a proven track record of successfully integrating acquired businesses, and realizing manufacturing and operational efficiencies,” said Jackson. “While ON Semiconductor has had a manufacturing and sales presence in Japan for more than a decade, this acquisition is an exciting move on our part to wholeheartedly enter the Japanese market. Customers of both SANYO Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor will benefit from what will become the combined expertise of talented engineering, manufacturing, sales, service and supply chain teams. We value SANYO Semiconductor’s customer knowledge and understanding, and look forward to building upon these important longstanding relationships. Our goal is to continue the structural transformation efforts begun by SANYO Electric. We welcome SANYO Electric as a shareholder and hope to build a collaborative long-term relationship.”
Teruo Tabata, president of SANYO Semiconductor, added, “There will be no change in the strategy as far as technology is concerned, as both companies specialize in analog technology. Instead, following the acquisition by ON Semiconductor, new opportunities to introduce both companies’ existing products in our newly combined markets will be available. We can also expect to expand the consumer base and further grow the business by offering complementary products and services to each other. In addition, we can expect further business development by strengthening product competitiveness through ON Semiconductor’s superior cost control measures in a value-added supply chain.”
Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, which has been approved by the boards of directors of both ON Semiconductor and SANYO Electric, SANYO Electric is expected to receive approximately $129 million (¥11.6 billion) in cash and approximately $238 million (¥21.4 billion) worth of ON Semiconductor common stock, expected to equal approximately 7 to 8 percent of ON Semiconductor’s fully diluted shares outstanding, subject to adjustment at closing. ON Semiconductor has the right to replace the stock consideration with cash at closing.
The transaction is subject to various closing conditions and regulatory approvals. The companies expect the transaction to close before the end of 2010. ON Semiconductor expects to incur deal costs and record charges related to the transaction. The amount of these charges has not yet been determined.
“In addition to the strategic benefits, we believe that the acquisition provides significant financial opportunities,” said Donald Colvin, ON Semiconductor executive vice president and CFO. “Although semiconductor valuations are currently depressed, we believe we have acquired the business for an agreeable price, with negligible dilutive impact to ON Semiconductor in the near term, and do not foresee the need for additional debt financing at this time. SANYO Semiconductor operates at approximately break-even today. Based on current revenue run rates, our goal is to deliver in excess of $30 million in pre-tax income on a quarterly basis from SANYO Semiconductor approximately eighteen months after closing the transaction. In addition, we expect that the acquisition will be accretive to ON Semiconductor’s non-GAAP earnings per share approximately twelve months after closing.”
ON Semiconductor plans to continue and expand upon the structural transformation initiated by SANYO Electric. SANYO Electric has agreed to support its original business transformation plan to restore SANYO Semiconductor’s profitability. SANYO Electric has also agreed to support ON Semiconductor’s future efforts to further improve SANYO Semiconductor’s manufacturing and operations.
For ON Semiconductor’s second fiscal quarter ended July 2, 2010, the company expects that both revenues and earnings will be in line with the guidance provided in the company’s first fiscal quarter 2010 earnings release which was announced on May 5, 2010. Further details of the company’s second quarter 2010 results will be made available on our regularly scheduled conference call on August 4, 2010.
