  • Net sales were $620.2 million
  • GAAP net income was a loss of $3.3 million, or ($0.03) per share
  • Non-GAAP net income was $16.4 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, inclusive of $0.03 of foreign exchange losses
  • Cash flow from operations of $36.9 million
  • Repaid $30 million of our Term Loan B

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Net sales for the first quarter of 2019 were $620.2 million, compared to $663.6 million in the first quarter of 2018 and $711.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

GAAP operating income for the first quarter of 2019 was $17.5 million, compared to $30.0 million in the first quarter of 2018 and $42.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. 

GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2019 was a loss of $3.3 million, or ($0.03) per share.  This compares to income of $10.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018 and $52.5 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2018. 

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $16.4 million, or $0.16 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $28.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2018 and $55.0 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 was $78.5 million, or 12.7 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $83.2 million, or 12.5 percent of net sales, for the first quarter of 2018 and $117.4 million, or 16.5 percent of net sales, for the fourth quarter of 2018.

“For the first quarter, TTM generated good cash flow and delivered earnings within the previously guided range, despite weakness in some of our commercial end markets,” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM.  “We were pleased to see solid year over year growth from the aerospace and defense end market that partially offset weakness in our cellular and automotive end markets.  We expect softness in the commercial markets to continue in Q2 and plan to address this challenge with the same discipline we have demonstrated in the past.  At the same time, we will continue to be focused on cash flow generation and our strategic goals of diversification and differentiation.”

Business Outlook
For the second quarter of 2019 TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $610 million to $650 million, and non-GAAP net income will be in the range of $0.15 to $0.21 per diluted share.

Forward-Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements that relate to future events or performance. TTM cautions you that such statements are simply predictions and actual events or results may differ materially. These statements reflect TTM's current expectations, and TTM 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 TTM statements will not be realized. Further, these statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond TTM'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 TTM's products, market pressures on prices of TTM's products, warranty claims, changes in product mix, contemplated significant capital expenditures and related financing requirements, TTM's dependence upon a small number of customers and other factors set forth in the "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of the Company's public reports filed with the SEC.

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.

With respect to the Company’s outlook for non-GAAP net income per diluted share, we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty or without unreasonable effort certain items that may affect such measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Our expected non-GAAP net income per diluted share excludes primarily the future impact of restructuring actions, impairment charges, unusual gains and losses, and tax adjustments. These reconciling items are highly variable and difficult to predict due to various factors outside of management’s control and could have a material impact on our future period net income per diluted share calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Accordingly, a reconciliation of non-GAAP net income per diluted share to such measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not available without unreasonable effort and has not been provided.

  1 This information provides a reconciliation of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP EPS, and adjusted EBITDA to the financial information in our consolidated condensed statements of operations.
                     
  2 Non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin measures exclude amortization of intangibles, 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, restructuring and other charges.
                     
  4 This information provides non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS, 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, 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 Income tax adjustments reflect the difference between income taxes based on a non-GAAP tax rate and a forecasted annual GAAP tax rate.
                     
  6 Non-GAAP diluted number of shares used in computing non-GAAP earnings per share excludes the dilutive effect of convertible debt.
                     
  7 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, 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.
