Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leader in low power, small form factor and customizable solutions announced financial results today for the fiscal second quarter ended June 28, 2014.
For the second quarter, revenue was $99.3 million, an increase of 2.8% from $96.6 million reported in the prior quarter, and an increase of 17.2% from the $84.7 million reported in the same quarter a year ago.
Net income for the second quarter was $11.8 million ($0.10 per basic and diluted share), compared to the prior quarter net income of $12.0 million ($0.10 per basic and diluted share) and net income of $5.0 million ($0.04 per basic and diluted share) reported in the same quarter a year ago.
Darin G. Billerbeck, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "This was another solid quarter for us as we executed to our plan. Strength in communications and growth in the industrial markets more than offset sequential softness in the consumer market. We continue to accelerate our new products to market, reaffirming our leadership in providing the lowest power, smallest footprint and affordably innovative programmable solutions."
Joe Bedewi, Corporate Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "Revenue and gross margin continue to be highlights, underscoring the strength of our business strategy. We achieved gross margins of 55.4% on a diversified revenue base, completely in sync with our stated strategy. The sequential increase in operating expenses was primarily due to an increase in variable compensation and severance costs. Our cash and investments increased approximately $22 million to end the second fiscal quarter with approximately $247 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities."
Recent Business Highlights:
- Major Product Launch: Lattice's new iCE40 Ultra™ FPGAs deliver 5x more functionality at 30% smaller size than competing solutions. Lattice has also reduced power by 75% over previous devices. Combined, these enable designers to give their systems more compact form factors and longer battery life, speeding customization of innovative features for mobile devices.
Business Outlook - Third Quarter 2014:
- Revenue is expected to be 8% to 12% lower on a sequential basis.
- Gross margin percentage is expected to be higher at approximately 56% plus or minus 2%.
- Total operating expenses are expected to be lower by approximately one million dollars on a sequential basis.

Forward-Looking Statements Notice:
The foregoing paragraphs contain forward-looking statements that involve estimates, assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Such forward-looking statements include statements relating to: our continued acceleration of all new products to reaffirm our leadership in providing the lowest power, smallest footprint and affordably innovative programmable solutions; and those statements under the heading “Business Outlook - Third Quarter 2014” relating to expected revenue, gross margin and total operating expenses. Other forward-looking statements may be indicated by words such as “will,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “forecast,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “propose,” “potential,” “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Lattice believes the factors identified below could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.
Estimates of future revenue are inherently uncertain due to, among other things, the high percentage of quarterly “turns” business. In addition, revenue is affected by such factors as global economic conditions, which may affect customer demand, pricing pressures, competitive actions, the demand for our Mature, Mainstream and New products, and in particular our iCE40™, MachXO™ and LatticeECP3™ devices, the ability to supply products to customers in a timely manner, changes in our distribution relationships, or the volatility of our consumer business. Actual gross margin percentage and operating expenses could vary from the estimates on the basis of, among other things, changes in revenue levels, changes in product pricing and mix, changes in wafer, assembly, test and other costs, including commodity costs, variations in manufacturing yields, the failure to sustain operational improvements, the actual amount of compensation charges due to stock price changes. Any unanticipated declines in revenue or gross margin, any unanticipated increases in our operating expenses or unanticipated charges could adversely affect our profitability.
In addition to the foregoing, other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release include global economic uncertainty, overall semiconductor market conditions, market acceptance and demand for our new products, the Company's dependencies on its silicon wafer suppliers, the impact of competitive products and pricing, technological and product development risks, and the other risks that are described in this press release and that are otherwise described from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
