TTM Technologies: Defense, Data Drive Profits in 3Q

Reading time ( words)

TTM Technologies, Inc., a leading global printed circuit board (“PCB”) and radio frequency (“RF”) components manufacturer, reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, which ended on September 28, 2020.  

On April 19th, 2020, TTM completed the previously announced sale of its Mobility business unit. The operating results and related assets and liabilities of the Mobility business under US GAAP are presented as discontinued operations for all periods. Non-GAAP results do not include Mobility results but still include the two E-MS plants being shut down. Please refer to the earnings schedule for additional details on exited businesses and continuing operations.

“In the third quarter, TTM demonstrated excellent operational execution to deliver revenue and earnings above the previously guided range. The diversified mix of end markets that we serve enabled the PCB segment to grow revenues and outperform profit expectations due to solid growth in the data center and defense end markets despite weakness in the commercial aerospace end market,” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. “Additionally, strict financial discipline led to strong operating cash flow in the quarter driving our net debt leverage ratio down to 1.6x.”

Third Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net sales were $513.6 million
  • GAAP net loss of $41.5 million, or ($0.39) per diluted share, inclusive of a goodwill impairment charge of $69.2 million
  • Non-GAAP net income was $26.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted share
  • Cash flow from operations of $84.8 million
  • Received all remaining proceeds from Mobility sale and repaid $400 million of Term Loan B
  • Leverage ratio at September 28th was 1.6x defined as net debt/last twelve months EBITDA excluding Mobility

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?
