"Our solid fourth quarter execution combined with seasonal growth in the cellular phone end market and robust demand in the automotive and aerospace and defense end markets drove our sequential increases in gross margin, operating profit and strong free cash flow generation," said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. "We are pleased to report non-GAAP earnings above the high end of our guidance range and revenue in line with expectations. In addition, we generated $118 million in free cash flow during the quarter which we will use to repay $70-80 million of principal on our term loan late in the first quarter."

"2015 was a transformational year for our company that culminated in the creation of one of today's leading global PCB manufacturers with increased customer and end market diversity. We delivered on our integration initiatives and exited the year having achieved 80% of our $55 million annualized synergy target," continued Edman.

"We expect our leadership in a diverse set of end markets to pay-off in the first quarter of 2016 as anticipated strength in automotive and aerospace and defense markets will help to mitigate a seasonal downturn in the cellular phone market. We will continue to build on these strengths as we leverage TTM's advanced technology position into the automotive market in particular."

For the first quarter of 2016, TTM estimates that revenue will be in the range of $570 million to $610 million, and non-GAAP net income will be in the range of $0.05 to $0.11 per diluted share.
