January 28, 2009

First Quarter Results

- Net Sales Decreased 21 Percent to $2.8 Billion; Organic Sales Declined 18 Percent

- Loss Per Share From Continuing Operations of $0.08 on a GAAP Basis; Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS) of $0.22

Second Quarter Outlook

- Company Expects Sales to Decline 32 to 35 Percent With an Organic Sales Decline of 28 to 31 Percent

- GAAP Loss From Continuing Operations Expected to be $0.10 to $0.15; Adjusted EPS Expected to be $0.05 to $0.10

PEMBROKE, Bermuda, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tyco Electronics Ltd. (NYSE: TEL; BSX: TEL) today reported results for the fiscal first quarter ended Dec. 26, 2008. The company reported net sales of $2.8 billion for the fiscal first quarter, a decrease of 21 percent compared to the prior-year period. Excluding currency effects, the organic sales decline was 18 percent. The GAAP loss per share from continuing operations was $0.08 for the quarter, compared to diluted EPS of $1.74 in the prior-year period. Included in the loss per share from continuing operations were $0.30 per share of charges -- $0.15 per share of costs associated with the termination of a contract by the State of New York, $0.12 per share of restructuring costs and $0.03 per share of charges related to other items. This compares to $1.15 per share of tax sharing income and $0.03 of restructuring charges in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations were $0.22 in the quarter, a decrease of 65 percent from last year's adjusted EPS of $0.62.

"We are in a very challenging and, in many ways, unprecedented environment," said Tyco Electronics Chief Executive Officer  Tom Lynch . "Our business is experiencing a significant deterioration in demand, especially in the global consumer markets served by our Electronic Components segment. In automotive -- our largest market -- sales declined 31 percent on an organic basis compared to the prior year. In addition to weak end-user demand, inventory adjustments across the supply chain contributed to our overall sales declines. Despite these circumstances, I am confident that we will improve our competitive position by staying close to our customers, continuing to invest in key technologies, reducing our cost structure and maintaining our financial strength."

Organic Sales Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Operating Margin and Free Cash Flow are all non-GAAP financial measures and are described at the end of this press release. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures, see the attached tables. All dollar amounts are pre-tax and stated in millions. All comparisons are to the quarter ended Dec. 28, 2007unless otherwise indicated.

 ($ in millions) Dec. 26, 2008 Dec. 28, 2007 $ Change % Change ------------ ------------- -------- -------- Net Sales $2,809 $3,558 $(749) (21)% Operating Income/(Loss) $(21) $472 $(493) NM Restructuring-Related Costs $(78) $(21) Other Items, Net $(128) $0 ------ --- Adjusted Operating Income $185 $493 $(308) (62)% Operating Margin NM 13.3% Adjusted Operating Margin 6.6% 13.9% 

The GAAP operating loss was $21 million, compared to $472 million of income in the prior-year period. Included in the current quarter operating income were restructuring costs of $78 million and other items of $128 million. Included in prior-year operating income were $21 million of restructuring costs. Excluding these items in both periods, adjusted operating income was $185 millioncompared to $493 million a year ago, a decrease of 62 percent. The adjusted operating margin was 6.6 percent, compared to 13.9 percent a year ago -- reflecting a 21 percent decline in sales, primarily in the company's Electronic Components segment, as well as approximately $50 million of losses related to foreign currency hedging activity.

CASH FLOW

Free cash flow was a use of $79 million in the quarter. Cash from continuing operations was $33 million versus $387 million in the prior-year quarter, primarily reflecting lower operating income and increased cash restructuring costs.

 ADDITIONAL ITEMS -- On Jan. 14, 2009, the company announced that its Board of Directors had unanimously approved a proposed change of the company's place of incorporation from Bermuda to Switzerland. If approved by the company's shareholders, Tyco Electronics intends to implement the change as soon as practicable. -- As disclosed on Jan. 15, 2009, the New York State Office for Technology terminated a master agreement for construction, operation and maintenance of the Statewide Wireless Network. First fiscal quarter results include charges of $111 million related to this termination. The charges include a $61 million asset impairment, as well as a $50 million request for payment under a standby letter of credit. Tyco Electronics believes that the termination was improper and is currently pursuing legal remedies to protect its rights under the contract. 

ORDERS

Total company orders declined 35 percent compared to the prior year. On an organic basis, excluding the effects of currency translation, orders declined 33 percent and the book-to-bill ratio was 0.96. Order rates in the Electronic Components segment declined 34 percent organically compared to the prior year and the book-to-bill ratio was 0.88, reflecting declines in all regions and nearly all end markets.

SECOND QUARTER FISCAL 2009 OUTLOOK

For the second quarter of fiscal 2009, the company expects a sales decline of 32 to 35 percent below prior-year sales of $3.7 billion, with an organic sales decline of 28 to 31 percent. The company further expects a GAAP loss from continuing operations of$0.10 to $0.15, which includes restructuring costs of approximately $0.20 per share. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations are expected to be $0.05 to $0.10, compared to adjusted EPS of $0.67 in the prior-year period. This outlook assumes current foreign exchange rates.

SEGMENT RESULTS

Tyco Electronics is comprised of four reporting segments: Electronic Components, Network Solutions, Undersea Telecommunications and Wireless Systems.

Electronic Components

The Electronic Components segment is one of the world's largest suppliers of passive electronic components, including connectors and interconnect systems, relays, switches, circuit protection devices, touchscreens, sensors, and wire and cable.

 $ % Organic ($ in millions) Dec. 26, 2008 Dec. 28, 2007 Change Change Growth ------------- ------------- -------- ------ ------- Net Sales $1,992 $2,640 $(648) (25)% (22)% Operating Income $12 $352 $(340) (97)% Restructuring- Related Costs $(56) $(15) Other Items $(8) $0 ---- ---- Adjusted Operating Income $76 $367 $(291) (79)% Operating Margin 0.6% 13.3% Adjusted Operating Margin 3.8% 13.9% 

Sales in the segment declined 25 percent compared to the prior-year quarter and declined 22 percent organically. On an organic basis, the company experienced declines in the automotive (-31 percent), computer (-30 percent), communications (-19 percent) and industrial (-9 percent) markets. Specifically in automotive, Europe declined 36 percent, North America declined 33 percent, and Asia declined 22 percent.

Operating income decreased by $340 million and adjusted operating income decreased by $291 million. The adjusted operating margin decreased due to the sales declines, as well as an approximately $50 million loss related to currency hedging activities. Excluding the losses associated with these hedging activities, the adjusted operating margin was 6.3 percent. Restructuring costs in the quarter were $56 million and other charges were $8 million, compared to $15 million of restructuring costs in the prior-year quarter.

Network Solutions

The Network Solutions segment is one of the world's largest suppliers of infrastructure components and systems for the communication service provider, building networks and energy markets.

 $ % Organic ($ in millions) Dec. 26, 2008 Dec. 28, 2007 Change Change Growth ------------- ------------- -------- ------ ------- Net Sales $456 $512 $(56) (11)% (2)% Operating Income $45 $69 $(24) (35)% Restructuring- Related Costs $(19) $(5) ----- ---- Adjusted Operating Income $64 $74 $(10) (14)% Operating Margin 9.9% 13.5% Adjusted Operating Margin 14.0% 14.5% 

Segment sales declined 11 percent compared to the prior-year quarter and declined 2 percent organically. On an organic basis, sales to the energy market grew 3 percent, while sales to the communication service provider and building networks markets each declined 5 percent.

Operating income decreased by $24 million and adjusted operating income decreased by $10 million. The decrease in the adjusted operating margin was primarily due to the overall sales decline. Restructuring costs in the quarter were $19 million, compared to $5 million in the prior-year quarter.

Undersea Telecommunications

The company's Undersea Telecommunications segment is a world leader in developing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining the world's most advanced fiber optic undersea networks.

 $ % Organic ($ in millions) Dec. 26, 2008 Dec. 28, 2007 Change Change Growth ------------- ------------- ------ ------ ------- Net Sales $265 $314 $(49) (16)% (16)% Operating Income $38 $43 $(5) (12)% Restructuring- Related Costs $(3) $(1) ---- ---- Adjusted Operating Income $41 $44 $(3) (7)% Operating Margin 14.3% 13.7% Adjusted Operating Margin 15.5% 14.0% 

Sales in the segment declined 16 percent organically versus the prior year due to construction of a large trans-Pacific project in the prior-year period. Adjusted operating income decreased $3 million. The adjusted operating margin increased to 15.5 percent, driven by a favorable project mix. Restructuring costs in the quarter were $3 million, compared to $1 million in the prior-year quarter.

Wireless Systems

The Wireless Systems segment is a leading innovator of wireless technology for critical communications.

 $ % Organic ($ in millions) Dec. 26, 2008 Dec. 28, 2007 Change Change Growth ------------- ------------- ------ ------ ------- Net Sales $96 $92 $4 4% 5% Operating Income/ (Loss) $(107) $8 $(115) NM Other Items $(111) $0 ------ --- Adjusted Operating Income $4 $8 $(4) (50)% Operating Margin NM 8.7% Adjusted Operating Margin 4.2% 8.7% 

Sales in the segment grew 5 percent organically, due to increased radio systems deployments and implementations. Operating income decreased $115 million and adjusted operating income decreased $4 million. The decrease in operating income was due to charges of $111 million associated with the termination of the New York State Statewide Wireless Network contract. The decrease in the adjusted operating margin was primarily related to a lower-margin sales mix.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

"Organic Sales Growth," "Adjusted Operating Income," "Adjusted Earnings Per Share," "Adjusted Operating Margin," and "Free Cash Flow" (FCF) are non-GAAP measures and should not be considered replacements for GAAP results.

"Organic Sales Growth" is a useful measure used by the company to measure the underlying results and trends in the business. The difference between reported net sales growth (the most comparable GAAP measure) and Organic Sales Growth (the non-GAAP measure) consists of the impact from foreign currency, acquisitions and divestitures. Organic Sales Growth is a useful measure of the company's performance because it excludes items that: i) are not completely under management's control, such as the impact of foreign currency exchange; or ii) do not reflect the underlying growth of the company, such as acquisition and divestiture activity. It is also a component of the company's compensation programs. The limitation of this measure is that it excludes items that have an impact on the company's sales. This limitation is best addressed by using organic sales growth in combination with the GAAP numbers. See the accompanying tables to this press release for the reconciliation presenting the components of Organic Sales Growth.

The company has presented its operating income before unusual items including costs related to legal settlements, restructuring costs, impairment charges and other income or charges ("Adjusted Operating Income"). The company utilizes Adjusted Operating Income to assess segment level core operating performance and to provide insight to management in evaluating segment operating plan execution and underlying market conditions. It is also a significant component in the company's incentive compensation plans. Adjusted Operating Income is a useful measure for investors because it better reflects the company's underlying operating results, trends and the comparability of these results between periods. The difference between Adjusted Operating Income and operating income (the most comparable GAAP measure) consists of the impact of charges related to litigation settlement costs, restructuring costs and other income or charges that may mask the underlying operating results and/or business trends. The limitation of this measure is that it excludes the financial impact of items that would otherwise either increase or decrease the company's reported operating income. This limitation is best addressed by using Adjusted Operating Income in combination with operating income (the most comparable GAAP measure) in order to better understand the amounts, character and impact of any increase or decrease on reported results.

The company has presented adjusted diluted earnings per share, which is earnings per share from continuing operations before unusual items, including costs related to legal settlements, restructuring costs, impairment charges, loss on retirement of debt and other income or charges ("Adjusted Earnings Per Share"). The company presents Adjusted Earnings Per Share because we believe that it is appropriate for investors to consider results excluding these items in addition to our results in accordance with GAAP. We believe such a measure provides a picture of our results that is more comparable among periods since it excludes the impact of unusual items, which may recur occasionally, but tend to be irregular as to timing, thereby making comparisons between periods more difficult. This limitation is best addressed by using Adjusted Earnings Per Share in combination with earnings per share (the most comparable GAAP measure) in order to better understand the amounts, character and impact of any increase or decrease on reported results.

The company has presented its operating margin before unusual items including costs related to legal settlements, restructuring costs and other income or charges ("Adjusted Operating Margin"). The company presents and forecasts its Adjusted Operating Margin before unusual items to give investors a perspective on the underlying business results. Because the company cannot predict the amount and timing of such items and the associated charges or gains that will be recorded in the company's financial statements, it is difficult to include the impact of those items in the forecast.

"Free Cash Flow" (FCF) is a useful measure of the company's cash generation which is free from any significant existing obligation. The difference between cash flows from operating activities (the most comparable GAAP measure) and FCF (the non-GAAP measure) consists mainly of significant cash outflows that the company believes are useful to identify. FCF permits management and investors to gain insight into the number that management employs to measure cash that is free from any significant existing obligation. The difference reflects the impact from:

 -- net capital expenditures, -- voluntary pension contributions, and -- cash impact of unusual items. 

Net capital expenditures are subtracted because they represent long-term commitments. Voluntary pension contributions are subtracted from the GAAP measure because this activity is driven by economic financing decisions rather than operating activity. The company forecasts its cash flow results excluding any voluntary pension contributions because it has not yet made a determination about the amount and timing of any future such contributions. In addition, the company's forecast excludes the cash impact of unusual items because the company cannot predict the amount and timing of such items.

The limitation associated with using FCF is that it subtracts cash items that are ultimately within management's and the Board of Directors' discretion to direct and that therefore may imply that there is less or more cash that is available for the company's programs than the most comparable GAAP measure. This limitation is best addressed by using FCF in combination with the GAAP cash flow numbers.

FCF as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. The measure should be used in conjunction with other GAAP financial measures. Investors are urged to read the company's financial statements as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the accompanying tables to this press release that show all the elements of the GAAP measures of Cash Flows from Operating Activities, Cash Flows from Investing Activities, Cash Flows from Financing Activities and a reconciliation of the company's total cash and cash equivalents for the period. See the accompanying tables to this press release for a cash flow statement presented in accordance with GAAP and a reconciliation presenting the components of FCF.
