PORTLAND, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 13, 2018 — Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the leading provider of customizable smart connectivity solutions, announced financial results today for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.

The Company reported revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 of $95.3 million, which increased 3.6% sequentially, as compared to the third quarter 2017 revenue of $92.0 million, and decreased 19.3% as compared to the fourth quarter 2016 revenue of $118.1 million.

Gross margin on a GAAP basis was 53.8% for the fourth quarter of 2017, as compared to the third quarter of 2017 gross margin of 58.0% and 53.7% for the fourth quarter of 2016. Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2017 declined compared to the third quarter of 2017 largely as the result of a reduction in the Company's inventory valuation of lower wafer and overhead costs.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $51.9 million on a GAAP basis, including an intangible asset impairment credit of $3.8 million, as compared to $90.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, including an intangible asset impairment charge of $36.2 million and the gain on sale of a building of $4.6 million, and $64.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, including $6.2 million in acquisition related expenses.

For the fiscal year 2017, revenue was $386.0 million, a decrease of 9.6% from $427.1 million in the fiscal year 2016. Revenue growth from the Computing, Industrial and Automotive end markets was offset by a non-recurrence of product demand related to the tin-lead and line item reduction program in 2016, a delay in the HDMI royalty sharing agreement, and year-over-year declines in DTV demand. Net loss on a GAAP basis for fiscal year 2017 was $70.6 million ($0.58 per basic and diluted share), compared to a net loss of $54.1 million ($0.45 per basic and diluted share) reported in fiscal year 2016.
