"By all measures our third quarter business performance was outstanding," said Kent Alder, President and CEO of TTM. "We achieved record revenue and profitability, exceeding the guidance we provided for the quarter. The recently completed combination with Meadville has clearly been a transformative event for TTM. Integration is progressing well as evidenced by the strength of our results for the third quarter."

"Both our North American and Asian facilities continue to experience solid backlogs and high levels of capacity utilization. Our scale, diversified customer base and end markets, as well as the strategic initiatives we have taken to date to enhance operating efficiencies, have combined to drive better results. All of these factors increase our confidence in our position for long-term growth," concluded Alder.

Business Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2010, TTM estimates revenue will be in the range of $351 million to $367 million, GAAP earnings attributable to stockholders in a range from $0.28 to $0.35 per diluted share and non-GAAP earnings attributable to stockholders in a range from $0.35 to $0.42 per diluted share.

About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes information about the Company's non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders and non-GAAP earnings per share attributable to stockholders, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that both measures -- which add back amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on debt, asset impairment and restructuring charges, inventory adjustments, costs related to the Meadville Holdings transaction and miscellaneous closing costs 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.

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.

Furthermore, readers are cautioned that these statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the company's control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the company's dependence upon the electronics industry, the impact of the current economic crisis, the company's dependence upon a small number of customers, the unpredictability of and potential fluctuation in future revenues and operating results, increased competition from low-cost foreign manufacturers and other "Risk Factors" set forth in the company's most recent SEC filings.

1 This information provides a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders and non-GAAP EPS attributable to stockholders to the financial information in our consolidated statements of operations.
           
2 Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to stockholders adjusted for controlling portion of interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and asset impairment. We present adjusted EBITDA to enhance the understanding of our operating results, and it is a key measure we use to evaluate our operations. In addition, we provide our adjusted EBITDA because we believe that investors and securities analysts will find adjusted EBITDA to be a useful measure for evaluating our operating performance and comparing our operating performance with that of similar companies that have different capital structures and for evaluating our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures, and working capital requirements. However, adjusted EBITDA is not defined under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America, and it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income as a measure of operating results.
           
3 Excludes noncontrolling interest portion.
           
4 This information provides non-GAAP net income attributable to stockholders and non-GAAP EPS attributable to stockholders, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that both measures --- which add back amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on debt (before consideration of capitalized interest), asset impairment and restructuring charges, inventory write-down related to facility closures, inventory fair value adjustment, costs related to the Meadville Holdings transaction and miscellaneous closing costs 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.
