ENP Newswire - 24 February 2014
Release date- 21022014 - PHOENIX, Ariz. - ON Semiconductor Corporation (the 'Company') (Nasdaq: ONNN) announced today that it has finalized its annual audit of the consolidated financial statements that included an adjustment to the fourth quarter and 2013 income tax provision and certain related financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, to (i) increase the income tax provision from $9.7 million to $22.9 million for the quarter and from $13.7 million to $26.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, and (ii) increase deferred tax liabilities in the United States by $13.2 million as of December 31, 2013.
Of the $13.2 million increase to the income tax provision and increase in deferred tax liabilities, approximately $10.7 million relates to periods prior to the year ended December 31, 2013, and $2.5 million relates to 2013. These adjustments are the result of the Company's conclusion that certain deferred tax liabilities may not be netted against deferred tax assets prior to determining the required valuation allowance. The impact of above mentioned adjustments is limited to non-cash items with respect to the Company's financial results for the fourth quarter of 2013 and fiscal year 2013. The company does not expect any future cash implications resulting from the above mentioned revision.
While there is no change to the non-GAAP results or the first quarter 2014 outlook included in the original earnings release, the additional tax expense results in final generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP') net income attributable to ON Semiconductor Corporation for the quarter ended December 31, 201, in the amount of $28.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, and revised GAAP net income attributable to ON Semiconductor Corporation for the year ended December 31, 2013, in the amount of $150.8 million or $0.33 per diluted share.
The following includes the adjustments described above and replaces the original earnings results announced by the Company in its press release dated February 6, 2014.
For the fourth quarter of 2013, highlights include:
Total revenues of $718.0 million
GAAP gross margin of 35.2%
Non-GAAP gross margin of 34.8%
GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.06
Non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.17

'With a strong design win pipeline across multiple segments and with substantial progress in previously announced restructuring measures, we believe we are well positioned to deliver strong operational results for 2014,' said Keith Jackson, president and CEO of ON Semiconductor. 'In 2014, we expect to resume strong free cash flow generation, which had been a hallmark of our operating model. Our momentum in targeted growth areas of automobiles, smartphones, and select segments of the industrial end-market should accelerate and enable us to deliver above market growth in 2014.
'Business trends during the fourth quarter of 2013 improved significantly with heightened order activity, and the strength has continued thus far in the current quarter. With an improving macro-economic outlook, especially for developed economies, and with favorable supply-demand dynamics, we are upbeat on our outlook for 2014.'
FIRST QUARTER 2014 OUTLOOK
'Based upon product booking trends, backlog levels, and estimated turns levels, we anticipate that total ON Semiconductor revenues will be approximately $695 million to $725 million in the first quarter of 2014,' Jackson said. 'Backlog levels for the first quarter of 2014 represent approximately 80 to 85 percent of our anticipated first quarter 2014 revenues. Average selling prices for the first quarter of 2014 are expected to be down approximately 2 percent when compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. The outlook for the first quarter of 2014 includes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $7 to $9 million.'
The following table outlines ON Semiconductor's projected first quarter of 2014 GAAP and non-GAAP outlook.
Convertible Notes, Non-cash Interest Expense is calculated pursuant to FASB's Accounting Standards Codification ('ASC') Topic 470: Debt.
** Diluted share count can vary for, among other things, the actual exercise of options or vesting of 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 convertible notes or the sale of treasury shares.
*** Special items may include: 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, income tax adjustments to approximate cash taxes, actuarial (gains) losses on pension plans and other pension benefits, 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.
