HILLSBORO, OR - JUNE 14, 2006 - Lattice Semiconductor (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced its business update for the second quarter of 2006.
Due to positive quarter-to-date business trends, particularly in the FPGA segment of the business, the Company today raised its revenue guidance. Additionally, due to a gain related to the liquidation of a portion of its foundry investments, the Company also raised its guidance for Other Income. The revised guidance is as follows:
- Second quarter revenue is expected to grow 5%-7% sequentially, as compared to previous guidance of 3%-6%;
- Other Income is expected to be approximately $4.0 million, an increase over previous guidance of $2.5 million.
All other guidance remains unchanged.
No conference call will be held in conjunction with this guidance update.
The foregoing business update contains forward-looking statements. Lattice believes the factors identified below in connection with each such statement could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.
Estimates of future revenue are inherently uncertain due to the high percentage of quarterly “turns” business, as well as such factors as pricing pressures, competitive actions, the demand for our products, and our ability to supply products to customers in a timely manner.
In addition to the foregoing, other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements herein include the Securities and Exchange Commission’s informal inquiry and any resulting actions, our ability to successfully conclude the settlement of our pending securities class action litigation, the Company’s dependencies on its silicon wafer suppliers, technological and product development risks, and other risks that are 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.
