TTM Technologies, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Results

COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TTM Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTMI), a leading global printed circuit board (“PCB”) manufacturer, today reported results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, which ended January 2nd, 2017.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Net sales were $706.5 million
  • GAAP net loss attributable to stockholders was $2.0 million, or $0.02 per share, which included a pre-tax charge of $47.8 million for debt extinguishment
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders was $59.8 million, or $0.58 per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $128.5 million

Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2016 were $706.5 million, compared to $668.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and $641.7 million in the third quarter of 2016.

GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $69.6 million, compared to $36.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and $50.2 million in the third quarter of 2016.

GAAP net loss attributable to stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $2.0 million, or $0.02 per share. This compares to a GAAP net income attributable to stockholders of $9.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015 and $25.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2016. The fourth quarter GAAP net loss includes a pre-tax charge of $47.8 million due to the early extinguishment of debt.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income attributable to stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $59.8 million, or $0.58 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders of $31.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2015 and $40.1 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $128.5 million, or 18.2 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $95.8 million, or 14.3 percent of net sales, for the fourth quarter of 2015 and $102.2 million, or 15.9 percent of net sales, for the third quarter of 2016.

“Our fourth quarter revenues exceeded the high end of our guidance and our profitability was better than our forecast,” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. “On a year over year basis, most end markets grew, with the fastest growth coming from the cellular and automotive end markets. This drove substantial operating income leverage in the business resulting in the highest non-GAAP EPS in the history of the company.”

Full Year 2016 Financial Results
Net sales for fiscal year 2016 increased to $2.5 billion from $2.1 billion in fiscal year 2015.

GAAP operating income for fiscal year 2016 was $173.5 million, an increase from GAAP operating income of $61.3 million in fiscal year 2015.

GAAP net income attributable to stockholders for fiscal year 2016 was $34.9 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss attributable to stockholders of $25.9 million, or $0.28 per share, for fiscal year 2015.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income attributable to stockholders for fiscal year 2016 was $142.3 million, or $1.40 per diluted share. This compares to fiscal year 2015 non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders of $81.1 million, or $0.87 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal year 2016 was $395.4 million, or 15.6 percent of net sales, compared to $285.7 million, or 13.6 percent of net sales, for fiscal year 2015.

"2016 was the year that validated TTM’s strategy of diversification, differentiation and discipline. We saw solid growth in the automotive and aerospace and defense end markets that partially offset the declines in the cellular and networking and communications end markets. Due to disciplined execution of synergies and cost controls, we generated $217 million in free cash flow and repaid approximately $218 million of our debt, allowing us to achieve a net debt to EBITDA ratio of less than 2.0 well ahead of our original timeline," continued Edman. “I would like to thank our employees for their tremendous efforts to achieve these results for the year 2016 as we created a new “One TTM” resulting from the combination of Viasystems and TTM Technologies.”

“In 2017, we are looking forward to year on year growth in many of our end markets driven by megatrends such as growing automotive electronic content, increased aerospace and defense procurement, and upgrades in cellular phones.”

Business Outlook
For the first quarter of 2017, TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $595 million to $635 million, and non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders will be in the range of $0.25 to $0.31 per diluted share.

About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes information about TTM’s adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. TTM presents non-GAAP financial information to enable investors to see TTM through the eyes of management and to provide better insight into TTM’s ongoing financial performance.

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. TTM 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.

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, and inventory markup.
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 Non-GAAP diluted number of shares used in computing non-GAAP earnings per share attributable to stockholders excludes the dilutive effect of convertible debt.
6 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.
