PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:LSCC), the leading provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, announced financial results today for the fiscal third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

The Company reported revenue for the third quarter of 2017 of $92.0 million, which decreased 2.3% sequentially, as compared to the second quarter 2017 revenue of $94.1 million, and decreased 18.8%, as compared to the third quarter 2016 revenue of $113.2 million.

Gross margin on a GAAP basis was 58.0% for the third quarter of 2017, as compared to the second quarter of 2017 gross margin of 54.4% and 59.5% for the third quarter of 2016. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2017 was 58.1% on a non-GAAP basis, as compared to 54.6% for the second quarter of 2017 and 59.8% for the third quarter of 2016.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $90.8 million on a GAAP basis, including an intangible asset impairment charge of $36.2 million, as compared to $59.9 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $73.4 million for the third quarter of 2016. Total operating expenses were $44.6 million for the third quarter of 2017 on a non-GAAP basis, as compared to $46.0 million for the second quarter of 2017, and $52.9 million for the third quarter of 2016.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $43.1 million ($0.35 per basic and diluted share), as compared to a net loss on a GAAP basis in the prior quarter of $13.0 million ($0.11 per basic and diluted share), and a net loss on a GAAP basis in the year ago period of $12.4 million ($0.10 per basic and diluted share). Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $5.3 million ($0.04 per basic and diluted share), as compared to $0.1 million ($0.00 per basic and diluted share) in the prior quarter, and $5.9 million ($0.05 per basic and diluted share) in the year ago period. For a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Non-GAAP please see the table titled, “Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” provided as part of this press release.

Darin G. Billerbeck, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Product revenue increased in our three core markets in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to the second quarter of 2017. Our core business continues to grow while we invest in new solutions for opportunities at the edge of the cloud -- opportunities that perfectly align to Lattice's technology and strategy. While our IP and services were down, growth in our silicon revenue offset a majority of this decline. We expect to exit the year leveraging our core business stability and new design wins to take advantage of the significant growth opportunities in front of us. We will continue to execute on our plan to drive OpEx lower as we focus on generating higher free cash flow to pay down our debt and invest into areas of strength."

Max Downing, Chief Financial Officer, added, "We are seeing positive results from the decisive actions we took to reduce operating expenses and to maximize profitability. In-line with our plan, we completed the sale of our Shanghai building in the quarter, which resulted in a gain on the sale of $4.6 million. We also took an intangible asset impairment charge of $36.2 million related to our previously announced strategic decision to cease future investment in wired application specific standard product development as we concentrate our resources on higher potential growth opportunities. In addition to the headcount and spin-out actions, we have a number of other cost structure improvements that are well underway and expected to benefit us in 2018, putting us on track to deliver additional improved financial results. We ended the third quarter of 2017 with approximately $108 million in cash and investments, up meaningfully from approximately $85 million in the second quarter of 2017."

Recent Business Highlights

  • CrossLink Adds Modular IP Cores to Support Intelligence at the Edge Applications: Lattice announced the availability of seven new modular IP cores for its award winning CrossLink FPGA product for increased design flexibility to support consumer, industrial and automotive applications. These modular IP cores offer the building blocks for customers to create their own unique video bridging solutions. Announced in May 2016, the CrossLink product was designed to address barriers faced by the increasingly complex and dynamic video market. Lattice equipped designers with a new way to deliver low power and compact bridging solutions without compromising performance to deliver cutting-edge innovations for multiple growth markets including automotive, AR/VR and drones. The new IP cores add to an already robust suite of tools to support quickly evolving intelligence at the edge applications.
  • Continued Success and Leadership in AR and VR Applications: Guangdong Virtual Reality Technology Co., Ltd. (Ximmerse), a provider of interaction systems for mobile AR/VR applications, selected Lattice’s low power, small form factor ECP5™ FPGA to perform stereo vision computing in their AR/VR tracking platform. Lattice’s market-leading ECP5 FPGAs are ideal for flexible connectivity and acceleration at the edge due to their low power, small form factor and low cost, delivering an energy-efficient, low latency solution.
  • Launched Solution to Expedite Embedded Vision Design and Prototyping: Lattice’s first-of-its-kind development kit combines its CrossLink™ video bridging FPGA, ECP5™ processing FPGA and high-resolution HDMI® ASSP into a single, modular platform, along with Helion’s pre-packaged ISP options. This provides a complete hardware and software solution to expedite the development of advanced applications at the edge, including embedded vision applications in Industry 4.0 applications, robotics, drones, automotive, AR and intelligent cameras for smart cities.
  • Lattice's iCE40 FPGA Enables Low Latency and Concurrent Sensor Processing in SteamVR Tracking: Valve selected Lattice’s low power and low cost iCE40™ FPGA to enable concurrent data capture and processing for its SteamVR™ Tracking. As a low power and low latency sensor hub on the SteamVR tracking platform, Lattice’s iCE40 FPGA significantly reduces the number of signals that need to be routed from the sensors to the applications processor (AP) / microcontrollers (MCUs) on the printed circuit board (PCB), which in turn reduces EMI emissions, PCB congestion and improves signal integrity.

Business Outlook - Fourth Quarter 2017*:

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 is expected to be between approximately $92 million and $97 million.
  • Gross margin percentage for the fourth quarter of 2017 is expected to be approximately 56% plus or minus 2% on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.
  • Total operating expenses are expected to be between approximately $53 million and $55 million on a GAAP basis and between approximately $43 million and $45 million on a non-GAAP basis.

Forward-Looking Statements Notice:

The foregoing paragraphs contain forward-looking statements that involve estimates, assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Any statements about our expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance are not historical facts and may be forward-looking. Such forward-looking statements include statements relating to: our expectation that we will deliver new solutions for opportunities at the edge of the cloud that will perfectly align to Lattice's technology and strategy; that we will exit the year leveraging our core business stability and new design wins to take advantage of the significant growth opportunities in front of us; that we will continue to execute on our plan to drive OpEx lower as we focus on generating higher free cash flow to pay down our debt and invest into areas of strength; that we have a number of other cost savings actions that are well underway and expect them to benefit us in 2018, putting us on track to deliver improved financial results; and the statements under the heading “Business Outlook-Fourth Quarter 2017.” Other forward-looking statements may be indicated by words such as “will,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “may,” “expect,” “plan,” “project,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “forecast,” “future,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “propose,” “potential,” “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology; and our expectation that we will remain focused on maximizing the leverage of our operating model and reduce our outstanding debt balance. 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™ and MachXO3L™ 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, the failure to achieve the anticipated benefits and synergies of the Silicon Image transaction. In addition, actual results are subject to other risks and uncertainties that relate more broadly to our overall business, including those risks more fully described in Lattice’s filings with the SEC including its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, and Lattice’s quarterly reports filed on Form 10-Q.

You should not unduly rely on forward-looking statements because actual results could differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. In addition, any forward-looking statement applies only as of the date on which it is made. 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Included within this press release and the accompanying tables and notes are non-GAAP financial measures that supplement the Company's consolidated financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP measures presented exclude charges and adjustments primarily related to stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, acquisition-related charges, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of intangible assets, purchase accounting adjustments, gain on sale of building, gain or loss on sale of business unit, and the estimated tax effect of these items. These charges and adjustments may be nonrecurring in nature but are a result of periodic or non-core operating activities of the Company. The Company describes these non-GAAP financial measures and reconciles them to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables and notes attached to this press release.

The Company's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of our performance that, when viewed in conjunction with our GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting our ongoing financial performance and operating results than GAAP measures alone. In particular, investors may find the non-GAAP measures useful in reviewing our operating performance without the significant accounting charges resulting from the Silicon Image acquisition, alongside the comparably adjusted prior year results. Management also uses these non-GAAP measures for strategic and business decision-making, internal budgeting, forecasting, and resource allocation processes and believes that investors should have access to similar data when making their investment decisions.

In addition, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA in calculating the annual excess cash flow debt payment. These non-GAAP measures are included solely for informational and comparative purposes and are not meant as a substitute for GAAP and should be considered together with the consolidated financial information located in the tables attached to this press release.
