“In the fourth quarter, TTM demonstrated excellent operational execution in the face of COVID-19 related challenges to deliver revenue above the midpoint and earnings above the previously guided range. TTM outperformed revenue expectations due to better sales across all end markets,” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. “Additionally, strict financial discipline led to solid operating cash flow in the quarter, driving our net debt leverage ratio down to 1.4x and enabling repayment of our convertible bond.”

"Despite the challenges from COVID-19 and the strengthening Chinese currency, we delivered solid results in 2020 and made progress on our strategy of diversification, differentiation and discipline. Specifically, we exited the volatile consumer and lower margin businesses through the sale of the Mobility business unit and the restructuring of the E-MS business unit," continued Edman. “In addition, we generated significant cash flow due to our operational and financial discipline. This cash, along with the proceeds from the Mobility sale, allowed us to repay $400 million of our Term Loan and our convertible bonds reducing our leverage and putting TTM in a strong position for the future.”
TTM estimates that revenue for the first quarter of 2021 will be in the range of $490 million to $530 million, and non-GAAP net income will be in the range of $0.19 to $0.25 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.
