HILLSBORO, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 1, 2004
Lattice Semiconductor Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) is a United States based manufacturer of high-performance programmable logic devices (FPGAs, CPLDs, & SPLDs). The Oregon based company is the number four ranked company in world market share for FPGA devices, Corporation (Nasdaq:LSCC LSCC Lake-Sumter Community College (Florida)
LSCC Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (stock symbol)
LSCC Lawson State Community College (Alabama) ) today announced that it plans to release fourth quarter and 2003 year end financial results in mid-March. The Company has set March 18, 2004 as the preliminary date for release of its financial results.
As previously announced, a detailed review of the Deferred Income account is being conducted under the direction of the Audit Committee. In the event the account is determined to have been overdepleted, the review will also consider appropriate corrective measures.
Deferred Income is the balance sheet account that represents the Company's judgment as to the potential gross margin, plus credits that may be due, on inventory held by the Company's distributors. Because the Company's accounting policy is to defer recognition of sales to distributors until the product is resold to end customers, a common practice in the semiconductor industry, the Company must use a variety of estimates to determine the Deferred Income account balance. As of September 30, 2003, the reported balance in the account was $6.4 million.
The Company today also provided a revenue outlook for the first quarter of 2004. Management believes fourth quarter revenue is within the range stated in its business outlook statement, published on the Company's web site on December 11, 2003. Additionally, based on current business activity, management expects first quarter 2004 revenue to grow approximately 6 to 10 percent on a sequential basis.
