Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results
Net sales for the third quarter of 2015 were $652.0 million compared to $445.4 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $345.3 million in the third quarter of 2014.

GAAP operating income for the third quarter of 2015 was $23.6 million compared to an operating loss of $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2015 and operating income of $12.3 million in the third quarter of 2014.

GAAP net loss attributable to stockholders for the third quarter of 2015 was $2.2 million, or $0.02 per share. This compares to GAAP net loss of $36.6 million, or $0.41 per share, in the second quarter of 2015 and GAAP net income of $7.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014. The GAAP results were negatively impacted by approximately $12.3 million of expenses related to the acquisition and integration of Viasystems.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income attributable to stockholders for the third quarter of 2015 was $23.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $14.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015 and $11.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2014.

"Our strong third quarter operating performance included the first full quarter of contribution from the Viasystems acquisition," said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. "Revenue was within our guidance range and non-GAAP earnings exceeded expectations. Demand in the aerospace and defense and mobility end markets, in particular, remained strong throughout the quarter."

Mr. Edman continued, "We are pleased with both our organic growth and our continued progress with the integration of Viasystems during the quarter. Shortly after the quarter ended, we announced plans to close three facilities as a part of our global integration plan. We expect the consolidation to improve plant utilization, operational performance and customer focus, and project that these actions will drive us closer to realizing our annualized synergies goal of $55.0 million. We remain focused on ongoing operational excellence and execution across our newly expanded diverse set of end markets and customers."

Business Outlook
For the fourth quarter of 2015, TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $640 million to $680 million, and non-GAAP net income will be in the range of $0.21 to $0.27 per diluted share.
