During the first quarter of 2010, ONNN reported GAAP net income of $63.0 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share. The first quarter 2010 GAAP net income included net charges of $22.3 million, or $0.05 per fully diluted share, from special items. The special item details can be found in the attached schedules. During the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company reported a GAAP net income of $68.0 million, or $0.15 per fully diluted share.

    First quarter 2010 non-GAAP net income was $85.3 million, or $0.19 per share on a fully diluted basis and includes stock based compensation expense. Fourth quarter 2009 non-GAAP net income was $84.9 million, or $0.19 per share on a fully diluted basis and includes stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures (and other non-GAAP measures used elsewhere in this release, such as non-GAAP gross margin and adjusted EBITDA) to the Company’s most directly comparable measures are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

    On a mix-adjusted basis, average selling prices in the first quarter of 2010 were down approximately 1% to 2% when compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. GAAP gross margin in the first quarter was 41.5%. Non-GAAP gross margin in the first quarter of 2010 was 42.1%, including stock based compensation expense. GAAP gross margin in the first quarter included a net charge of approximately $3.7 million, or approximately 60 basis points, from special items.

    Investment Highlights

    ONNN recently announced that it has successfully prepaid and terminated its $169.75 million term loan and terminated its $25.0 million undrawn revolver under its senior secured credit facilities, which would have matured in 2013.  With the repayment of this facility, the Company expects to save annual cash interest expense of approximately $3.4 million based on that day’s LIBOR.

    ONNN has expanded its portfolio of products to support next generation power system design. The NCP4303A and NCP4303B are full featured synchronous rectification controller and driver integrated circuits (ICs) targeted at use in Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) for applications such as ATX power supplies, flat screen televisions, high power AC-DC adapters and gaming consoles. Their unique features provide an efficient and flexible solution for secondary side rectification in SMPS.

    Capable of a maximum operating frequency of 500kHz, these new ICs feature high current gate drivers along with high-speed logic circuitry to provide appropriately timed drive signals to the synchronous rectification MOSFET. The extremely low turn-off delay time of 40ns typical, combined with the high sink current capability of the drivers and the automatic package parasitic inductance compensation system allow synchronous rectification MOSFET conduction time to be maximized – thus increasing the efficiency of the SMPS.

    Externally adjustable minimum on and off times (which are independent of the Vcc level) help to deal with the ringing induced by PCB layouts and other parasitic elements. This results in reliable, noiseless operation. The NCP4303 also features a trigger input that can be used to interface with the primary side of the power supply, allowing use in constant current applications.

    The NCP4303 is available with two different gate drive clamp voltages to tailor to the characteristics of different synchronous MOSFETs available on the market. The NCP4303A has a gate drive clamp of 12V, while the NCP4303B has a 6V gate drive clamp. These versatile devices can be used in various power topologies, such as flyback, forward and half bridge resonant LLC.


    Technical Analysis


    ONNN is below its 50-day moving average. This bearish sign is even more significant because the moving average is also trending lower.

    ONNN’s recent volatility has been greater than normal. This is evidenced by the increased distance between the upper and lower Bollinger Bands. These bands measure volatility using standard deviation and a large width is due to high volatility. Additionally, ONNN is trading near its lower Bollinger Band. This suggests that the stock price is low relative to its recent price action.

    The MACD for ONNN currently indicates a strong bearish signal for two reasons. First, the MACD is below the signal line, a 9-day moving average. Second, the MACD is below the critical level of zero, which implies that the underlying moving averages are trending lower.
