COMMENTS FROM MANAGEMENT:

“The fourth quarter was illustrative of our efforts towards achieving our growth strategy. We experienced solid double-digit percentage gains in deliveries, total revenues, community count, contracts, backlog and contracts per community,” stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our adjusted pretax profit of $45 million for the quarter beat consensus estimates and made us profitable on this basis for the full year. Our increased level of revenues and the resultant lower SG&A expense ratio for the fourth quarter demonstrate the benefits of leveraging our SG&A expenses with higher revenues. We are encouraged by the current housing environment and economic backdrop which we believe should allow us to execute on our objectives.”

J. Larry Sorsby, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President commented, “During the fourth quarter, we took steps to significantly improve our capital structure and better position the Company to execute on our growth strategy. We successfully exchanged or refinanced over $800 million of debt. We eliminated all maturities until 2022 and pushed out over 50% of the debt maturing in 2022 and 2024. Additionally, we simplified the capital structure by creating a single collateral pool for all secured debt holders. The long-term benefits of extending our debt maturities far outweighed the short-term impact of the $42 million charge for the early extinguishment of debt. At the end of the fourth quarter, we had $276 million of liquidity, which enables us to continue to invest in new land to further our community count, revenues and profitability growth in the future.”
