HILLSBORO, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 29, 2019 — Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC), the low power programmable leader, announced financial results today for the fiscal third quarter ended September 28, 2019.

Jim Anderson, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We improved our operating margin to 25% on a non-GAAP basis as we continued to execute on our business strategy and drive additional operational improvements. We made solid progress on our product roadmap and are excited about the acceleration in the schedule of our planned new product rollouts. This includes our recently introduced CrossLinkPlus™ FPGA family, which is already sampling to customers ahead of plan. Our priority remains executing on our business strategy as we unlock additional value for the company and its shareholders."

Sherri Luther, Chief Financial Officer, said, "We achieved a 67% sequential improvement in GAAP diluted EPS in Q3 2019 compared to Q2 2019 and a 100% year-over-year improvement compared to Q3 2018. We have generated approximately $85 million in cash flow from operations in the first nine months of 2019, 4 times the same period in 2018, underscoring our focus on cash generation. This has allowed us to make $107 million in total debt payments for the first nine months of 2019, including $33.4 million in total debt payments in Q3 2019. Reducing our leverage ratio below 1.5, as defined in our credit agreement, allowed us to lower the interest rate by another 25 basis points in the quarter for a total reduction of 300 basis points in 2019. We continue to focus on profitability and cash generation, and have a clear line of sight on achieving our financial model targets."
