Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Net sales for the second quarter of 2014 were $297.6 million compared to $291.9 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $338.0 million in the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2014 was $3.2 million compared to operating income of $4.5 million in the first quarter of 2014 and operating income of $28.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. Operating results for the second quarter of 2013 included a gain of $17.9 million resulting from TTM's sale of its equity interest in the SYE plant. Excluding this gain, operating income was $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $3.1 million, or $0.04 per share. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $3.8 million, or $0.05 per share, in the first quarter of 2014 and GAAP net income of $13.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $3.9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $1.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014 and $7.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $32.8 million, or 11.0 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $29.1 million, or 10.0 percent of net sales, for the first quarter of 2014 and $39.1 million, or 11.6 percent of net sales, for the second quarter of 2013.

"We generated sales and non-GAAP earnings in line with our expectations for the second quarter," said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. "We are pleased with our strong performance in the networking/ communications and aerospace & defense end markets. In most other end markets, we experienced normal seasonality, with somewhat broader softness in the computing end market."

"Based on our backlog and customer product ramps, we continue to expect our financial performance to be stronger in the second half of the year. Accordingly, we expect robust sales growth for the third quarter with improved utilization levels in our advanced technology facilities," concluded Mr. Edman.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2014, TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $325 million to $355 million, and non-GAAP earnings in the range of $0.11 to $0.17 per diluted share.

About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes information about the Company's adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders and non-GAAP earnings per share attributable to stockholders, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company presents non-GAAP financial information to enable investors to see the company through the eyes of management and to provide better insight into the Company's ongoing financial performance.

Management believes that the non-GAAP financial information – which add back amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on debt, asset impairments, restructuring and other unusual or infrequent items (such as the gain realized on the SYE transaction) as well as the associated tax impact of these charges and discrete tax items – provides 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.

Safe Harbor Statement

This release contains forward-looking statements that relate to future events or performance. We caution you that such statements are simply predictions and actual events or results may differ materially. These statements reflect the company's current expectations and the company does not undertake to update or revise these forward looking statements, even if experience or future changes make it clear that any projected results expressed or implied in this or other company statements will not be realized. Further, these statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the company's control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, general market and economic conditions, including interest rates, currency exchange rates and consumer spending, demand for the company's products, market pressures on prices of the company's products, warranty claims, changes in product mix, contemplated significant capital expenditures and related financing requirements, the company's dependence upon a small number of customers and other "Risk Factors" set forth in the company's most recent SEC filings.

1 This information provides a reconciliation of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders, non-GAAP EPS attributable to stockholders, and adjusted EBITDA to the financial information in our consolidated condensed statements of operations.
2 Non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin measures exclude stock-based compensation expense.
3 Non-GAAP operating income and operating margin measures exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, gain on sale of assets, and restructuring and impairment charges.
4 This information provides non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders and non-GAAP EPS 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 (before consideration of capitalized interest), gain on sale of assets, asset impairments, restructuring and other charges as well as the associated tax impact of these charges and discrete tax items --- provide additional useful information to investors regarding the Company's ongoing financial condition and results of operations.
5 Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, gain on sale of assets, asset impairments, restructuring and other charges. We present adjusted EBITDA to enhance the understanding of our operating results, and it is a key measure we use to evaluate our operations. In addition, we provide our adjusted EBITDA because we believe that investors and securities analysts will find adjusted EBITDA to be a useful measure for evaluating our operating performance and comparing our operating performance with that of similar companies that have different capital structures and for evaluating our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures, and working capital requirements. However, adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income as a measure of operating results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
