SUPPLEMENT TO THE PROXY STATEMENT
FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON MAY 3, 2019
The following information corrects the definitive proxy statement of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (the Company) originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 22, 2019, in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Companys Board of Directors for use at the Companys 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders or any adjournment(s) thereof (the Proxy Statement).
The Proxy Statement section titled CEO Pay Ratio did not reflect the correct numerical pay ratio calculation and inadvertently omitted employer 401(k) contributions made on behalf of Mr. James R. Anderson, our Chief Executive Officer (our CEO), when stating our CEOs annualized annual total compensation. Accordingly, for fiscal 2018, our last completed fiscal year:
The median of the annual total compensation of all employees of our company (other than our CEO), was $74,420.
The annualized annual total compensation of our CEO was $10,655,771.
For 2018, based on this information, the annual total compensation of our CEO, including a one-time sign on bonus and other inducement awards issued to Mr. Anderson in connection with our executive transition, was 143.2 times that of the median of the annual total compensation of all employees. In future years, we expect the ratio to substantially decrease toward our peer group median. The CEOs total compensation for fiscal 2018 adjusted to exclude what we consider one-time items was $3,970,557. Under this methodology, the ratio of our CEOs adjusted annual total compensation was 53.4 times that of the median of the annual total compensation of all employees.
