ON Semiconductor and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Partner to Transfer Ownership of East Fishkill, NY 300mm Facility

Sponsored by Businesswire

ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ON)
(“ON Semiconductor”) and GLOBALFOUNDRIES today announced that they have
entered into a definitive agreement for ON Semiconductor to acquire a
300mm fab located in East Fishkill, New York. The total consideration
for the acquisition is $430 million, of which $100 million has been paid
at signing of the definitive agreement, and $330 million will be paid at
the end of 2022, after which ON Semiconductor will gain full operational
control of the fab, and the site’s employees will transition to ON
Semiconductor. Completion of the transaction is subject to regulatory
approval and other customary closing conditions.

The agreement allows ON Semiconductor to increase its 300mm production
at the East Fishkill fab over several years, and allows for
GLOBALFOUNDRIES to transition its numerous technologies to the company’s
three other at-scale 300mm sites. Under the terms of the agreement,
GLOBALFOUNDRIES will manufacture 300mm wafers for ON Semiconductor until
the end of 2022. First production of 300mm wafers for ON Semiconductor
is expected to start in 2020.

The agreement also includes a technology transfer and development
agreement and a technology license agreement. This provides a world
class, experienced 300mm manufacturing and development team to enable
conversion of ON Semiconductor wafer processes from 200mm to 300mm. ON
Semiconductor will also have immediate access to advanced CMOS
capability including 45nm and 65nm technology nodes. These processes
will form the basis for future technology development at ON

“We are pleased to welcome the GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab10 team to ON
Semiconductor’s team. The acquisition of 300 mm East Fishkill fab is
another major step in our progress towards leadership in power and
analog semiconductors,” said Keith Jackson, president and chief
executive officer of ON Semiconductor. “The acquisition adds additional
capacity over the next few years to support growth in our power and
analog products, enables incremental manufacturing efficiencies, and
accelerates progress towards our target financial model. I am very
excited about the opportunity this acquisition creates for customers,
shareholders, and employees of the two companies and look forward to a
successful partnership with GLOBALFOUNDRIES in the coming years.”

“ON Semiconductor is an ideal partner for GLOBALFOUNDRIES and this
agreement is a transformative step in our journey to build
GLOBALFOUNDRIES into the world’s leading specialty foundry,” said Tom
Caulfield, CEO at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. “This partnership enables
GLOBALFOUNDRIES to further optimize our assets globally and intensify
our investments in the differentiated technologies that fuel our growth
while securing a long-term future for the Fab 10 facility and our

“We are excited to support ON Semiconductor’s expansion to the
Mid-Hudson Region, which will keep high paying manufacturing jobs in New
York State and support the company’s plan for future growth and
development,” said Howard Zemsky, president and CEO at Empire State
