"2007 was another solid year of performance for many of our business segments," said Keith Jackson, ON Semiconductor President and CEO. "We saw 14% growth in our computing end-market as our power management integrated circuits were adopted by a number of leading computing OEMs. In December, we also completed our acquisition of the CPU Voltage and Thermal Products Group from Analog Devices, Inc. The acquisition expands our overall computing power management business and accelerates our notebook power management revenue growth. Our automotive end-market also had a record year with revenues growing by over 10% versus 2006 and representing our highest automotive end-market revenues since 2002. Our wireless and consumer electronics end-markets declined slightly in 2007 as two major customers in these end-markets significantly reduced their builds compared to 2006. In December, we also signed a definitive merger agreement to acquire AMI Holdings, Inc., parent company of AMI Semiconductor. We are excited to complete this transaction, with a target closing date in the first half of 2008. We believe this business complements our existing automotive and industrial businesses and adds new opportunities for ON Semiconductor in the medical and military/aerospace end-markets."
