ON Semiconductor set to buy WiFi specialist Quantenna
ON Semiconductor will acquire Quantenna for approximately $1.07 billion in an all-cash transaction that corresponds to a price of $24.50 per share.

The acquisition consideration represents an enterprise value of approximately $936 million, after accounting for Quantenna’s net cash of approximately $136 million at the end of Q4 2018. The acquisition enhances ON Semiconductor’s connectivity portfolio with the addition of Quantenna’s Wi-Fi technology and software capabilities.

“We are very pleased to welcome Quantenna to ON Semiconductor’s team. The acquisition of Quantenna is another step towards strengthening our presence in industrial and automotive markets. The combination of ON Semiconductor’s expertise in highly efficient power management and broad sales and distribution reach, and Quantenna’s industry leading Wi-Fi technologies and software expertise creates a formidable platform for addressing fast growing markets for low-power connectivity in industrial and automotive applications,” said Keith Jackson, president and chief executive officer of ON Semiconductor. “I am very excited about the opportunity this acquisition creates for customers, shareholders, and employees of the two companies.”

Following consummation, the transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to ON Semiconductor’s non-GAAP earnings per share and free cash flow, excluding any non-recurring acquisition related charges, the fair value step-up inventory amortization, and amortization of acquired intangibles.

ON Semiconductor intends to fund the transaction through cash on hand and available capacity under its existing revolving credit facility.

Completion of the transaction is subject to approval by Quantenna’s stockholders, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The transaction has been approved by ON Semiconductor’s and Quantenna’s boards of directors and is expected to close in the second half of 2019.
