  1. Challenges and Opportunities Around the Globe:Criteria of Successful Fabless Companies Semiconductor Market Overview April 2011

  2. GSA Mission Accelerate the growth and increase the return on invested capital of the global semiconductor industry by fostering a more effective ecosystem through collaboration, integration and innovation • GSA is the only organization that brings together the entire semiconductor ecosystem in order to represent industry-wide interests and thoughts • GSA strives to promote the visibility of our members both internally and externally • GSA provides a neutral environment for executives within the semiconductor industry to meet and collaborate on ways to improve efficiencies and resolve industry wide problems • GSA identifies and discusses market trends & opportunities, and how our members can best capitalize on these • GSA encourages and supports entrepreneurship as we recognize that this is what continually pushes our industry forward

  3. About GSA: Our History and Future • Phase I: 1994 Established Fabless Semiconductor Association • Saw a need to bring together the fabless manufacturers, foundries, and back-end to achieve a more collaborative working relationship • Began with 40 Charter Members and a 9-person board of directors • Phase II: Acceptance of the Fabless Business Model • The Fabless model began to evolve and become accepted as a viable alternative to traditional IDM’s • Phase III: Growth and Expansion • The organization grew to nearly 300 members and we expanded our presence in Asia-Pacific and Europe • Phase IV: Transitioned to Global Semiconductor Alliance • A conscious decision to include the entire semiconductor ecosystem as the lines of delineation began to blur between fabless, fab-lite, and IDM’s

  4. GSA Success Model • The number of companies that seek support from GSA • Represent nearly 500 companies and their partners in 30 countries. • In 2010, 73 companies joined membership. • The executives exposed to and involved in our efforts • Over 100 executives involved in a GSA leadership role. • Multiple Interest Groups & Working Groups • IP, EDA, Test, 3D IC, MEMS, Supply Chain, AMS/RF • Organized to discuss common issues and concerns as well as accelerate the adoption of specific technology and ideas • Collaborate and host global events • Europe, Israel, China, Taiwan, Japan, U.S. and Canada • Provide numerous resources, surveys & reports, unique to GSA membership • Collaborative Innovation in the Global Semiconductor Industry; Wafer Fabrication & Back-End Pricing Report; Memory Conference Report; Global Semiconductor Financial Tracker; Global Semiconductor Funding, IPO & M&A Update; GSA Forum; Leading Indicator Index

  6. J.P Morgan/GSA Semiconductor Index of Leading Indicators • March Index fell below 50, implying that some near-term caution has developed • Prospects for the industry & economy have been negatively impacted by the crisis in Japan, the Middle East and political uncertainty in the U.S. and Europe.

  7. Revenue – Quarterly • Q4 2010 • Q-o-Q Revenue Growth = -3.7% • First Q-o-Q decrease since Q1 2009 Source: IHS iSuppli Corp. March 2011

  8. Revenue – Annual • 2010 Growth: 32.1% • 2011 Forecasted Growth: 7% (Source: IHS iSuppli) • 0 3.5% CAGR 5% CAGR 7% CAGR Source: IHS iSuppli Corp. March 2011

  9. Revenue – 2010 End Market Growth Growth Drivers: Mobile PCs and Smartphones, LCD TVs, energy efficient tools, industrial automation, emerging hybrid and electric vehicles, infotainment, and engine controls Source: Databeans, April 2011

  10. Revenue – 2011 End Market Growth Fast Growing Component Areas: FPGAs, SoC’s & baseband processors for tablets and phones, RF/Wireless ICs, touch screen interface devices, automotive/power semiconductor devices, HD processing chips (Source: EE Herald) 1% Growth Source: Databeans, April 2011

  14. Trends – R&D Investments • On average, R&D spending for US listed companies decreased from 2009 to 2010 in terms of per cent of sales, but not in terms of total spend • On average, foundries only spend 5% to 10% on R&D, whereas IDM’s and fabless companies spend 20% on R&D. Of course this is off-set by the foundries CAPEX • Of the top 10 companies, Broadcom had the highest R&D to sales ratio at 28% • TSMC was the first pure-play foundry to join the top 10 R&D spenders (7%, $945K) Source: GSA

  16. Trends – The Shift from Digital to Analog • Why the move? • Increased margin • Less software, CAPEX, and R&D intensive • Market growth • Worldwide analog sales climbed to $42 billion in 2010 • Analog chip revenue will rise by about 14% in 2011 • High-growth analog devices: power ICs, sensors, displays, actuators and lighting • Sustainability • Applications that will drive the analog market: energy conservation, power control for transportation, alternative energy sources, and other applications in clean-tech

  17. 2010 M&A Activity • For 2010, 109 semiconductor M&A deals were announced which is a 10% increase over 2009

  18. 2011 M&A Activity M&As • 28 semiconductor M&A deals were announced in Q1, however the pace is expected to increase as companies try to fill holes in their product lines Source: GSA

  19. 2010 Funding Activity • The total number of deals closed, decreased from 139 in 2009 to 121 in 2010 • However the total funding raised was increased, from $1.1B in 2009 to $1.2B in 2010

  20. 2011 Funding Activity Q1 2011 Funding • 21 semiconductor companies raised $407.1 million • Number of companies funded decreased by 3 when compared to Q4 2010 and decreased by 23 when compared to Q1 2010 • The dollar amount invested increased by 5% when compared to Q4 2010 and decreased by 10% when compared to Q1 2010.
