HILLSBORO, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 11, 2020 — Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the low power programmable leader, announced financial results today for the fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended December 28, 2019.

Jim Anderson, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We made solid progress in 2019, as we drove a 210 basis point improvement in gross margin on a non-GAAP basis, and an 88% increase in non-GAAP net income for the full year. We are seeing the benefits of our business and product strategy, which is aligned with our customers and 100% focused on power efficient FPGAs. We remain focused on driving further improvements as we increase our cadence of new hardware products, solutions, and software stacks, including the launch of Nexus, our next-generation FPGA platform. The launch was ahead of schedule and serves as a testament to the execution of our product roadmap."

For the full year 2019, GAAP diluted EPS increased 252% compared to the full year 2018 and improved 300% in Q4 2019 as compared to Q4 2018. We increased cash flow from operations by 141% for the full year 2019, continuing our focus on cash generation. Our improved financial performance allowed us to significantly reduce our leverage ratio to 1.3, as defined in our credit agreement, compared to a leverage ratio of 3.0 in the year ago fourth quarter. We remain focused on profitability and cash generation as we drive additional progress towards our target model."
