TTM Technologies, Inc. Reports 2009 First Quarter Results

for immediate release

SANTA ANA, CA - April 30, 2009 - TTM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TTMI), North America's largest printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer, today reported results for the first quarter of 2009, ended March 30, 2009.

First Quarter 2009 Financial Results - GAAP
First quarter net sales of $149.0 million decreased $15.9 million, or 9.7 percent, from fourth quarter net sales of $164.9 million.

First quarter gross margin of 16.3 percent declined from fourth quarter gross margin of 18.6 percent.

During the first quarter, TTM Technologies recorded a restructuring charge of $2.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, related to the closure of the Company's Redmond, WA facility and other layoffs announced January 15, 2009.

Operating income for the first quarter was $5.0 million compared to an operating loss of $108.9 million for the fourth quarter. Excluding asset impairment and restructuring charges, operating income for the first quarter was $7.8 million compared to $14.5 million for the fourth quarter.

During the first quarter, TTM Technologies adopted FASB Staff Position APB 14-1, "Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments That May be Settled in Cash Upon Conversion (Including Partial Cash Settlement)" (APB 14-1), which increases the interest expense on the Company's outstanding convertible debt. The adoption of APB 14-1 resulted in increased interest expense of $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2009 and is expected to result in increased expense of approximately $4.6 million for the full year 2009. The increased interest expense resulting from APB 14-1 is a non-cash expense.

Net income for the first quarter was $1.4 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a fourth quarter net loss of $69.2 million, or $1.62 per basic share. Fourth quarter results have been adjusted to reflect the retroactive impact of APB 14-1.

Kent Alder, President and CEO of TTM, said, "The macroeconomic environment continues to place unprecedented challenges on global enterprises, with demand for printed circuit boards continuing to be negatively impacted. Despite the decline in revenue, however, we generated $12.1 million of cash in the first quarter and continued to reduce our costs." Commenting on the Company's diversified business model, Alder added, "The Aerospace/Defense end market was stable and remained a significant contributor to our success."

First Quarter 2009 Financial Results - Non-GAAP
Non-GAAP results for the first quarter exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, restructuring and asset impairment charges, non-cash interest expense and the income tax effects related to these expenses.

First quarter non-GAAP net income was $5.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to fourth quarter non-GAAP net income of $9.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share.

Excluding asset impairment charges, adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the first quarter was $11.1 million, or 7.5 percent of net sales, compared with fourth quarter EBITDA of $20.7 million, or 12.5 percent of net sales.

A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures is provided after the GAAP financial statements accompanying this press release.

About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes information about the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that both measures - which exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debt, asset impairment charges and restructuring charges as well as the associated tax impact of these charges - provide additional useful information to investors regarding the Company's ongoing financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the Company's internal reporting, including information provided to the Company's Audit Committee and Board of Directors, contains non-GAAP measures.

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 with similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company 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.
