TTM Technologies, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2015 Results

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TTM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:TTMI), a major global printed circuit board ("PCB") manufacturer, today reported results for the third quarter 2015, which ended September 28, 2015. Results for the period reflect the first full quarter of consolidated results from the acquisition of Viasystems Group, Inc. ("Viasystems"), completed on May 31, 2015.

Third Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • Net sales were $652.0 million
  • GAAP net loss attributable to stockholders was $2.2 million, or $0.02 per share
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders was $23.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share

Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Net sales for the third quarter of 2015 were $652.0 million compared to $445.4 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $345.3 million in the third quarter of 2014.

GAAP operating income for the third quarter of 2015 was $23.6 million compared to an operating loss of $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 and operating income of $12.3 million in the third quarter of 2014.

GAAP net loss attributable to stockholders for the third quarter of 2015 was $2.2 million, or $0.02 per share. This compares to GAAP net loss of $36.6 million, or $0.41 per share, in the second quarter of 2015 and GAAP net income of $7.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014. The GAAP results were negatively impacted by approximately $12.3 million of expenses related to the acquisition and integration of Viasystems.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income attributable to stockholders for the third quarter of 2015 was $23.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $14.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015 and $11.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2015 was $87.6 million, or 13.4 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $59.7 million, or 13.4 percent of net sales, for the second quarter of 2015 and $43.6 million, or 12.6 percent of net sales, for the third quarter of 2014.

"Our strong third quarter operating performance included the first full quarter of contribution from the Viasystems acquisition," said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. "Revenue was within our guidance range and non-GAAP earnings exceeded expectations. Demand in the aerospace and defense and mobility end markets, in particular, remained strong throughout the quarter."

Mr. Edman continued, "We are pleased with both our organic growth and our continued progress with the integration of Viasystems during the quarter. Shortly after the quarter ended, we announced plans to close three facilities as a part of our global integration plan. We expect the consolidation to improve plant utilization, operational performance and customer focus, and project that these actions will drive us closer to realizing our annualized synergies goal of $55.0 million. We remain focused on ongoing operational excellence and execution across our newly expanded diverse set of end markets and customers."

Business Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2015, TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $640 million to $680 million, and non-GAAP net income will be in the range of $0.21 to $0.27 per diluted share.

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, inventory markup and PP&E step up.
3 Non-GAAP operating income and operating margin measures exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, gain on sale of assets, inventory markup, acquisition-related costs, asset impairments, restructuring and other 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, inventory markup, acquisition-related costs, 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, inventory markup, acquisition-related costs, 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.
