Recent Business Highlights:
Ultra-Low PoweriCE40™: Lattice announced its new, ultra-low density iCE40 FPGAs, delivering the world's smallest, most flexible, single chip sensor solution for ultra-low power mobile devices. The new additions to the iCE40 FPGA family allow customers to integrate functions into a smaller space.
- Ultra-Low Density MachX03™: Lattice launched its ultra-low density MachXO3™ FPGA family, the world's smallest, lowest-cost-per I/O programmable platform aimed at expanding system capabilities and bridging emerging connectivity interfaces using both parallel and serial I/O.
- New Reference Designs: Lattice introduced three new complete reference designs that will make it easier for electronic OEMs to deliver media-rich experiences to their end users by taking advantage of low-cost, industry-standard MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) camera, application processor, and display technologies.
Business Outlook - Fourth Quarter 2013:
- In-line with recent annual demand trends, revenue is expected to be minus 5% to 9% on a sequential basis.
- Gross margin percentage is expected to be approximately 53% plus or minus 2%.
- Total operating expenses are expected to be approximately
$37.5 million, including approximately $1.0 millionof mask costs in support of growth opportunities.

Forward-Looking Statements Notice:
The foregoing paragraphs contain forward-looking statements that involve estimates, assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Such forward-looking statements include statements relating to: the continuing rebound of the broader communications market in
Estimates of future revenue are inherently uncertain due to, among other things, the high percentage of quarterly "turns" business. In addition, revenue is affected by such factors as global economic conditions, which may affect customer demand, pricing pressures, competitive actions, the demand for our Mature, Mainstream and New products, and in particular our iCE™, MachXO™ and LatticeECP3™ devices, the ability to supply products to customers in a timely manner, changes in our distribution relationships, or the volatility of our consumer business. Actual gross margin percentage and operating expenses could vary from the estimates on the basis of, among other things, changes in revenue levels, changes in product pricing and mix, changes in wafer, assembly, test and other costs, including commodity costs, variations in manufacturing yields, the failure to sustain operational improvements, the actual amount of compensation charges due to stock price changes. Any unanticipated declines in revenue or gross margin, any unanticipated increases in our operating expenses or unanticipated charges could adversely affect our profitability.
In addition to the foregoing, other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release include global economic uncertainty, overall semiconductor market conditions, market acceptance and demand for our new products, the Company's dependencies on its silicon wafer suppliers, the impact of competitive products and pricing, technological and product development risks, and the other risks that are described in this press release and that are otherwise described from time to time in our filings with the

|(1)||In June 2013 the company early adopted, with retrospective application, the requirements of ASU 2013-11 Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists. Accordingly, previous periods have been revised to conform with current period presentation. This resulted in both long-term taxes payable and deferred tax assets declining by approximately $14 million for all periods presented.|

|* Product categories are modified as appropriate relative to our portfolio of products and the generation within each major product family. New products consist of our latest generation of products, while Mainstream and Mature are older or based on unique late stage customer-based production needs. Generally, product categories are adjusted every two to three years, at which time prior periods are reclassified to conform to the new categorization. In the first fiscal quarter 2012 we reclassified our New, Mainstream and Mature product categories to better reflect our current product portfolio.|
|(2)||During the first quarter of 2013, the Company refined its methodology for assigning revenue to End Market categories. All periods presented have been revised to conform to this methodology.|
