    Investment Highlights

    Shares of ONNN gained 1.6% in the last five trading days and 5.1% in the last month.  Year-to-date, the stock is up 13.0%.

    The energy-management chip maker last month reported its total revenues in the second quarter increased nearly 4% to $905.8 million quarter-over-quarter, a record quarterly result for the Company.

    During the second quarter of 2011, the Company reported GAAP net income of $41.0 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted share.  The second quarter 2011 GAAP net income included net charges of $73.4 million, or $0.16 per fully diluted share, from special items.  During the first quarter of 2011, the Company reported a GAAP net income of $82.6 million, or $0.18 per fully diluted share.

    The Company said it gross profit and net income for the quarter were slightly less than anticipated due to a more adverse impact from the March 2011 earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan, as well as manufacturing cost increases from commodity prices and foreign currencies.

    Second quarter 2011 non-GAAP net income was $114.4 million, or $0.25 per share on a fully diluted basis. First quarter 2011 non-GAAP net income was $121.2 million, or $0.27 per share on a fully diluted basis.

    On a mix-adjusted basis, average selling prices for ONNN in the second quarter of 2011 were approximately flat when compared to the first quarter of 2011. Total company GAAP gross margin in the second quarter was 29.4%, which included a net charge of approximately $53.0 million, or approximately 580 basis points, from special items.  Total company non-GAAP gross margin in the second quarter was 35.2%.

    Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 was $176.5 million, compared to $167.3 million reported for the first quarter of 2011.

    President and CEO Keith Jackson said ONNN’s revenues for Japan began to stabilize in May and the Company currently expects to see some slight revenue growth in its overall SANYO Semiconductor business in the third quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2011.

    “Thanks in large part to the great efforts and teamwork of our employees, all of our factories in Japan were capable of full production during the second half of May.  Semiconductor manufacturing cycle times, however, have a lag between when the factories can begin full production and when those final products can be shipped to customers.  In the third quarter, we expect a modest impact to revenues from this lost production,” Jackson stated.

    For the third quarter of 2011,  ONNN believes it is prepared to support higher growth if higher demand materializes.  The Company anticipates revenues will be  in the range of $895 to $925 million in the current quarter based upon product booking trends, backlog levels and estimated turns levels.

    “Backlog levels for the third quarter of 2011 represent approximately 90 percent of our anticipated third quarter 2011 revenues.  We expect that average selling prices for the third quarter of 2011 will be flat to down approximately one percent when compared to the second quarter of 2011.  The non-GAAP outlook for the third quarter of 2011 includes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $12 million.”

    Technical Analysis


    ONNN is within its Bollinger Bands. This is a normal condition suggesting that it is neither overbought nor oversold relative to the recent levels.

    ONNN is below its 20-day moving average. This bearish sign is even more significant because the moving average is also trending lower.

    ONNN’s MACD is currently indicating a weak bullish signal. Although the MACD is trending above the signal line, the indicator is still below 0, which suggests that the underlying moving averages are bearish.
