Lattice Semiconductor Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

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.

New products consist of our latest generation of products, while Mainstream and Mature are older or based on unique late stage customer-based production needs. Generally, product categories are adjusted every two to three years, at which time prior periods are reclassified to conform to the new categorization. In the first fiscal quarter 2014 we reclassified our New, Mainstream and Mature product categories to better reflect our current product portfolio.
