“TTM delivered the fifth consecutive quarter of year on year organic growth with revenues and operating performance that significantly exceeded expectations” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM.  “On a year over year basis, the fastest growth in the fourth quarter came from the cellular and the aerospace and defense end markets.  This drove cash flow from operations to a record high of $152.7 million in the quarter.”

"2017 continued to validate TTM’s strategy of diversification, differentiation and discipline.  We saw solid organic growth in the aerospace and defense, cellular and computing end markets that more than offset the decline in the networking and communications end markets," continued Edman.  “I would like to thank our employees for their tremendous efforts to achieve these results for the year 2017.”

“In the first quarter of 2018, we face short term seasonal challenges in our consumer oriented cellular and computing end markets, but remain optimistic for full year growth in nearly all 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 2018, TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $610 million to $660 million, and non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders will be in the range of $0.22 to $0.28 per diluted share.
