Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter ended December 29, 2012.
For the fourth quarter, revenue was $65.9 million, a decrease of 7.1% from $70.9 million reported in the prior quarter, and a decrease of 6.1% from the $70.2 million reported in the same quarter a year ago. FPGA revenue for the fourth quarter was $20.9 million, a decrease from the $26.1 million reported in the prior quarter, and a slight decrease from the $22.1 million reported in the same quarter a year ago. PLD revenue for the fourth quarter was $45.0 million, essentially flat with the $44.8 million reported in the prior quarter, and a decrease from the $48.1 million reported in the same quarter a year ago.
Net loss for the fourth quarter was $7.2 million ($0.06 per basic and diluted share), which includes a tax expense of $0.4 million, amortization expense from acquired intangibles of $0.8 million and restructuring charges of $5.4 million, compared to prior quarter net loss of $2.2 million ($0.02 per basic and diluted share) and net income of $40.9 million ($0.34 per diluted share) reported in the same quarter a year ago. Third quarter of 2012 results included a tax provision of $1.9 million ($0.02 per basic and diluted share) and $0.7 million of amortization expense from acquired intangibles. Fourth quarter of 2011 results included a tax benefit of $35.1 million ($0.29 per diluted share), $0.5 million of acquisition related charges and $1.1 million ($0.01 per diluted share) of restructuring charges.
Darin G. Billerbeck, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Results for the fourth quarter of 2012 were in line with our revised guidance and reflect the continued challenging macro environment worldwide. Weakness was broad based across nearly all end markets and geographies except for the consumer market. Based on customer and market forecasts, we expect to see some improvement in the communications and other markets throughout 2013. We continue to gain traction in the consumer and mobile consumer markets led by our iCE products. We have shipped more than 15 million iCE40 devices, making this our fastest ramping product."
Joe Bedewi, Corporate Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "Gross Margin came in at 54.2%, which was at the high end of our original guidance. We continue to drive additional cost reductions in operations and materials purchases, which we believe will continue to deliver benefits as we move through 2013. Operating expenses were approximately $42.1 million, which included $5.4 million in restructuring charges. This is approximately $0.9 million below our original guidance. We expect to see the benefits of our restructuring actions in the first quarter of 2013 and beyond. Finally, during the quarter we repurchased approximately 1.3 million shares at a cost of approximately $5.2 million. During 2012, we repurchased approximately 4.1 million shares at a cost of approximately $17.5 million."
Fourth Quarter 2012 Business Highlights:
- Shipped 15 Millionth iCE FPGA: Shipments of Lattice's iCE FPGA devices, including its flagship ultra-low density iCE40 FPGA family, reached 15 million. This success reflects widespread adoption of the iCE40 devices for use in mobile consumer applications, which represent the overwhelming majority of device shipments.
- Awarded "Digital Semiconductor Product of the Year": Lattice's ultra-low density iCE40 FPGA family was named "Digital Semiconductor Product of the Year" as part of the 2012 Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards, which recognize the achievements of individuals and companies across Europe.
- New Security & Surveillance Solutions Showcased: Lattice demonstrated several new FPGA-based camera designs at the China Security Expo in Beijing, China in the fourth quarter, including several camera solutions developed in conjunction with Lattice partner organizations.
Business Outlook - First Quarter 2013:
- Revenue is expected to decline approximately 2% to 4% on a sequential basis.
- Gross margin percentage is expected to be approximately 54% plus or minus 2%.
- Total operating expenses are expected to be approximately $35.5 million, including approximately $0.5 million in restructuring charges.

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 business outlook, including those statements under the heading "Business Outlook - First Quarter 2013" relating to expected revenue, gross margin, total operating expenses, and projected restructuring charges, the expected improvement in the communications and other markets throughout 2013; our ability to gain traction in the communications and mobile consumer markets; our belief that additional cost reductions in operations and materials purchases will continue to deliver benefits as we move through 2013; our expectation that we will see the benefits of our restructuring actions in the first quarter of 2013 and beyond. 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 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. Further, the impact of any restructuring, including the restructuring actions undertaken during the fourth quarter of 2012, will depend on, among other factors, the final actions taken, negotiation of related expenses with third parties, the timing of restructuring activities and the ability of the Company to successfully reallocate functions formerly addressed by the employees and other resources eliminated in the restructuring. 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.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
