TTM Technologies, Inc. Reports 2011 Third Quarter Results

for immediate release

SANTA ANA, CA - November 2, 2011 - TTM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTMI), a major global printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer, today reported results for the third quarter 2011, ended September 26, 2011.

Third Quarter 2011 Highlights
  • Net sales were $358.3 million
  • GAAP net income attributable to stockholders was $24.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders was $31.0 million, or $0.38 per diluted share
  • Gross margin was 19.7 percent

"Our third quarter financial results were impacted by the challenging macroeconomic environment," said Kent Alder, President and CEO of TTM. "Softer demand for printed circuit boards due to weaker economic conditions - combined with several push outs of orders at the end of the quarter - led to lower than expected revenue for the quarter.

"We remain confident that the underlying long-term drivers for advanced PCBs, such as the proliferation of converged mobile devices and the surge in networking applications, remain unchanged," Alder said. "We believe we have invested wisely in our capacity expansion, which has been focused on advanced PCB technology, enabling TTM to be well positioned for the next stage of growth when the demand environment improves."

Financial Results
Net sales for the third quarter decreased to $358.3 million from $366.1 million in the second quarter.

Operating income for the third quarter increased to $36.3 million compared to an operating loss of $8.5 million in the second quarter due to a non-cash asset impairment charge of $48.1 million. Excluding the asset impairment charge, operating income for the second quarter was $39.6 million.

GAAP net income attributable to stockholders for the third quarter was $24.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $20.9 million, or $0.26 per basic share, for the second quarter. Included in the second quarter net loss attributable to stockholders was the after-tax asset impairment charge of $46.6 million, or $0.57 per basic share.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income attributable to stockholders for the third quarter was $31.0 million, or $0.38 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders of $32.9 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the second quarter.

EBITDA for the third quarter was $59.3 million, or 16.5 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $64.2 million, or 17.5 percent of net sales, for the second quarter.

About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes information about the Company's non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders and non-GAAP earnings per share attributable to stockholders, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that both measures -- which add back amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on debt, asset impairment, restructuring and other charges as well as the associated tax impact of these charges -- provide additional useful information to investors regarding the Company's ongoing financial condition and results of operations.

A material limitation associated with the use of the above non-GAAP financial measures is that they have no standardized measurement prescribed by GAAP and may not be comparable with similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of each non-GAAP financial measure and reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
