TTM Technologies, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2005 Results

for immediate release

SANTA ANA, CA - July 7, 2005 - TTM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTMI), a leading manufacturer of time-critical and technologically advanced printed circuit boards, today reported results for the second quarter of 2005.

Second-Quarter Results
Second quarter 2005 net sales decreased 7 percent to $57.2 million, compared to $61.6 million for the second quarter of 2004. Sequentially, from the first quarter of 2005, net sales decreased $1.7 million, or 3 percent. The sequential decline resulted from declining prices, partially offset by higher volumes.

Quick-turn business remained stable in the second quarter and represented 22 percent of net sales, compared to 21 percent for the second quarter of 2004 and 21 percent for the first quarter of 2005.

Gross margin decreased to 19.3 percent for the second quarter of 2005, compared to 31.0 percent for the second quarter of 2004 and 23.0 percent for the first quarter of 2005. Gross margins during the second quarter of 2005 were negatively affected by lower prices, reduced operating efficiency due to back-end loaded shipments, and higher wage and benefits costs.

General and administrative expenses of $3.0 million in the second quarter declined from $3.8 million in the year-ago period and $3.4 million in the first quarter of 2005. Sequentially, lower Sarbanes Oxley compliance costs and incentive compensation were partially offset by higher legal expenses.

TTM posted an operating profit of $4.8 million for the second quarter of 2005, down from $11.0 million for the second quarter of 2004 and $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2005. The decline in gross profit, as described above, was the primary cause.

Net income for the second quarter of 2005 was $3.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with $4.5 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2005, and $6.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2004.

EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the second quarter of 2005 was $7.9 million, compared with $13.5 million for the second quarter of 2004 and $9.7 million for the first quarter of 2005.

In the second quarter of 2005, TTM generated cash flow from operations of $3.7 million, enabling it to fund net capital expenditures of $2.2 million, while expanding its cash and short-term investments to a total of $63.6 million.

"Volume remained healthy in the second quarter, increasing 2 percent from the first quarter of 2005, as order and shipment activity built over the course of the quarter," said Kent Alder, President and CEO of TTM Technologies. "But the back-end loaded shipment pattern reduced operating efficiency, while pricing was lower than anticipated."

Outlook
For the third quarter of 2005, TTM is estimating revenues of $57 million to $60 million and earnings of $0.07 to $0.10 per diluted share. "To date, third quarter order rates are at higher levels than we experienced at the beginning of the second quarter, but we continue to see pricing pressure," concluded Alder.

Other Announcements
TTM also announced today that Stacey Peterson, the company's Chief Financial Officer, will be leaving to accept a position as chief financial officer of a Los Angeles-based company.

"Stacey has been a tremendous asset to TTM," stated Kent Alder. "Among her many accomplishments, she has established effective financial controls and put in place a talented financial team that will serve our company well. The company has retained an executive search firm to find a successor. In the meantime, Stacey will help with the transition until a new CFO is named."
