SANTA ANA, CA - May 1, 2012 - TTM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTMI), a major global printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer, today reported results for the first quarter 2012, which ended March 26, 2012.

First Quarter 2012 Highlights
  • Net sales were $300.5 million
  • GAAP net income attributable to stockholders was $12.6 million, or $0.15 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders was $18.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share
  • Gross margin was 18.8 percent
Financial Results

Net sales for the first quarter decreased to $300.5 million from $361.5 million in the fourth quarter.

Operating income for the first quarter increased to $21.8 million compared to operating income of $17.6 million in the fourth quarter. Included in operating results for the fourth quarter of 2011 was a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $15.2 million at the company’s backplane assembly plant in Shanghai, China.

GAAP net income attributable to stockholders for the first quarter was $12.6 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to stockholders of $11.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income attributable to stockholders for the first quarter was $18.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders of $31.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA, which adds back asset impairments, for the first quarter was $46.4 million, or 15.4 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $60.2 million, or 16.6 percent of net sales, for the fourth quarter.

"We achieved first quarter gross margin and net income in line with our guidance, despite lower than expected revenue. A more favorable product mix combined with consistent execution helped overcome the negative leverage that comes with decreased revenue and contributed to the solid gross margin performance," said Kent Alder, President and CEO of TTM. "In addition to normal seasonality, our top line was impacted by weaker demand in the telecom infrastructure and cellular phone markets."

"Our ability to produce the most complex PCBs continues to differentiate TTM from our competitors. Advanced HDI PCBs, which are used in high-growth products such as touchpad tablets and smartphones, continued to represent a growing portion of our product mix."

"Based on our qualification work with customers, we remain optimistic about the second half of the year," concluded Alder.

Business Outlook

For the second quarter, TTM estimates revenue will be in the range of $320 million to $340 million, GAAP earnings attributable to stockholders in a range from $0.10 to $0.19 per diluted share and non-GAAP earnings attributable to stockholders in a range from $0.18 to $0.27 per diluted share.

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 impairments, 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 to 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.
