TTM Technologies Completes Acquisition of Telephonics Corporation

Reading time ( words)

TTM Technologies, Inc. announced that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Telephonics Corporation (“Telephonics”) from Griffon Corporation for approximately $330 million in cash. Telephonics, founded in 1933, is recognized globally as a leading provider of highly sophisticated intelligence, surveillance and communications solutions that are deployed across a wide range of land, sea and air applications.

The transaction significantly broadens TTM’s Aerospace and Defense product offering vertically into higher-level engineered system solutions and horizontally into surveillance and communications markets, while strengthening its position in radar systems. With the addition of critical engineering talent, the combined company will be well positioned to benefit from the anticipated increased spending in defense electronics.

“I enthusiastically welcome Telephonics employees to TTM and look forward to the combination of our respective talents,” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. “We expect that Telephonics’ complementary portfolio and skills will enhance TTM’s strategic capabilities and growth opportunities, enabling us to deliver significant benefits to our Aerospace and Defense customers.”

Key Terms of the Transaction and Financial Highlights

The purchase of the stock of the Telephonics business entities was completed in a debt free, cash free transaction for $330 million in cash, subject to customary working capital adjustments.

TTM has identified approximately $12 million in pre-tax, run rate, cost synergies which are expected to be realized by the end of 2024. TTM believes that significant additional revenue and cost synergies will result from other integration efforts over a longer period of time.

TTM expects to finance the purchase with cash on hand. At the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, TTM had $519.1 million in cash on the balance sheet.

This transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to non-GAAP EPS. However, TTM does not expect a material contribution from Telephonics in Q2 due to the transaction close date at the end of our second quarter. We will provide further information during our second quarter earnings call.

There is plenty of evidence that the American PCB industry is going through a revitalization. While a few new companies are being established, others are being rejuvenated as investors gain more interest and confidence in domestic PCB companies. I reached out to Prashant Patel, owner and president of Alpha Circuit I LLC in the greater Chicago area. I wanted to hear about his investment and the unique path he took to owning a PCB shop.

James Webb Space Telescope en Route to Discover Origins of the Universe, Study Exoplanets

01/06/2022 | Thales
A joint program between NASA and its counterparts in Europe (ESA) and Canada (CSA), Webb will observe the beginnings of our Universe by reaching back in time to just a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. It will also observe exoplanets – planets outside the Solar System – that are comparable to our own, as well as the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. The ultimate aim of this successor to the iconic Hubble space telescope is to discover galaxies that reach back to the relative beginnings of the Universe. This state-of-the-art time machine is expected to revolutionize all aspects of modern astronomy. It will unveil the hidden side of the Universe, namely stars enveloped in clouds of dust, molecules in the atmosphere of other worlds, and the light issuing from the first stars and galaxies.

DoD Faces Growing Risks from Reliance on Lead in Electronics

12/13/2021 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Like a cancer that spreads untreated until it becomes an urgent problem, the U.S. defense community is facing a small but growing problem that is increasingly undermining U.S. military readiness and technological dominance. The problem is lead—specifically, the lead-alloy solders that traditionally have been used to attach electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Over the last 15 years, the commercial electronics industry has shifted to lead-free solders, prompted by environmental health regulations in Europe and elsewhere. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its contractors never made the switch and are still heavily reliant on leaded solders. Now, leaded electronics are becoming harder to find and more outdated.
