GAAP operating income for the first quarter of 2020 was $16.2 million, compared to $30.1 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $29.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.
GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $3.2 million, or ($0.03) per diluted share. This compares to net income of $6.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2019, and net income of $7.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2019.
First Quarter 2020 Non-GAAP Financial Results
Net sales for the first quarter of 2020 were $610.8 million, compared to $620.2 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $719.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of 2020 was $19.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $16.4 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019 and $43.9 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020 was $82.1 million, or 13.4 percent of net sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $78.5 million, or 12.7 percent of net sales, for the first quarter of 2019 and $111.3 million, or 15.5 percent of net sales, for the fourth quarter of 2019.
“As we start the second quarter, all of our manufacturing facilities remain operational and we are particularly proud of our urgent production of printed circuit boards used for critical medical needs. I want to recognize all of our employees for their tremendous efforts in support of our customers during these challenging times,” said Tom Edman, CEO of TTM. “TTM’s first priority remains the health and safety of our employees and we have taken proactive measures against the spread of COVID-19 in all of our facilities. We have implemented enhanced cleaning, social distancing practices, temperature checks, and masks among other measures.”
“Regarding our financial results for the first quarter, TTM delivered revenue above the midpoint and earnings above the previously guided range despite a government mandated shutdown of our manufacturing plants in China as a result of COVID-19. The year over year growth we experienced in the aerospace and defense, cellular and computing end markets partially offset weakness in our automotive and networking and communications end markets.”
Looking ahead, we believe that COVID-19 may cause end demand weakness, supply chain disruptions, as well as inefficiencies with our own production. Taking this into consideration, TTM estimates that revenue for the second quarter of 2020 will be in the range of $520 million to $560 million, and non-GAAP net income will be in the range of $0.11 to $0.17 per diluted share, which includes the financial impact of the Mobility business unit until it was sold on April 17th.

These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the impact of COVID-19, general market and economic conditions, including interest rates, currency exchange rates and consumer spending, demand for TTM's products, market pressures on prices of TTM's products, warranty claims, changes in product mix, contemplated significant capital expenditures and related financing requirements, TTM's dependence upon a small number of customers and other factors set forth in the "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of the Company's public reports filed with the SEC.
About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes information about TTM’s adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. TTM presents non-GAAP financial information to enable investors to see TTM through the eyes of management and to provide better insight into TTM’s ongoing financial performance.
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 to similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. TTM 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.
With respect to the Company’s outlook for non-GAAP net income per diluted share, we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty or without unreasonable effort certain items that may affect a comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Our expected non-GAAP net income per diluted share excludes primarily the future impact of restructuring actions, impairment charges, unusual gains and losses, and tax adjustments. These reconciling items are highly variable and difficult to predict due to various factors outside of management’s control and could have a material impact on our future period net income per diluted share calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, a reconciliation of non-GAAP net income per diluted share to a comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not available without unreasonable effort and has not been provided.
