payments was $201.6 million* vs. $389.2 million*Ken Campbell, the Company's President and CEO commented, "I am pleased to announce that before debt refinancing charges, the fourth quarter represented our third consecutive quarter of generating an operating profit.  Before land spends and debt refinancing costs, we generated $10 million of cash flows from operations for the quarter and over $200 million for 2010 despite weaker homebuyer demand."  Mr. Campbell continued, "During the quarter we also successfully completed the refinancing of $576 million of our pre-September 2016 debt, which was reduced from $665 million to less than $90 million.  This refinance, coupled with the proceeds from our recent equity issuance, provides us with a substantial amount of capital and liquidity to continue our land acquisition strategy over the next few years.  As a result of our land buying efforts, we expect to open over 55 new communities in 2011, 35 of which are slated for the first half of the year."For the 2010 fourth quarter, the Company generated a net loss of $21.9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared to net income of $82.7 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the year earlier period.  The 2010 fourth quarter included a $23.8 million charge related to the early extinguishment of debt and $2.3 million of asset impairments.  Excluding charges related to the early extinguishment of debt and impairments, the Company generated net income of $4.3 million* for the 2010 fourth quarter and $20.6 million* for the full year 2010.  The 2009 fourth quarter included an income tax benefit of $94.1 million related to tax legislation enacted during the prior year, $10.9 million of asset impairment charges, a $3.5 million charge related to the early extinguishment of debt and $1.6 million of restructuring charges.  Homebuilding revenues for the 2010 fourth quarter were $212.4 million, down 37% from $339.8 million for the 2009 fourth quarter.  The decrease in homebuilding revenues was driven primarily by a 34% decline in new home deliveries to 619 homes, which was offset in part by a 7% increase in consolidated average home price to $340,000 as compared to $318,000 for the 2009 fourth quarter.  The increase in average home price was largely due to the delivery of more higher priced homes in California and a reduction in deliveries in Florida and Arizona as compared to the 2009 fourth quarter.  Homebuilding revenues for 2010 were $912.4 million compared to $1,166.4 million for the prior year.Gross margin from home sales for the 2010 fourth quarter was 22.2% versus 18.1% for the year earlier period.  The Company's 2010 fourth quarter gross margin from home sales included $1.8 million of inventory impairment charges and was offset by a $2.0 million benefit related to a reduction in its warranty accrual, while the Company's 2009 fourth quarter margin included $6.6 million of inventory impairment charges.  Excluding impairment charges, gross margin from home sales was 23.1%* for the 2010 fourth quarter compared to 20.3%* for the prior year quarter.  The 280 basis point improvement in the 2010 fourth quarter adjusted gross margin from home sales was driven primarily by lower direct construction costs, an increased mix of California deliveries and higher margins in Southern California as compared to the 2009 fourth quarter, and the $2.0 million warranty accrual adjustment in 2010.  Excluding impairments and previously capitalized interest costs, gross margin from home sales for the 2010 fourth quarter was 30.2%* versus 26.9%* for the 2009 fourth quarter.    The Company's 2010 fourth quarter SG&A expenses (including Corporate G&A) were $38.0 million compared to $49.4 million for the 2009 fourth quarter and included noncash stock-based compensation expenses of $3.3 million and $5.6 million, respectively.  The Company's 2010 fourth quarter SG&A rate from home sales was 18.1% versus 16.5% for the 2009 fourth quarter.  The increase in the Company's SG&A rate was primarily the result of a 30% decrease in revenues from home sales. During the 2010 fourth quarter, the Company issued $275 million of 8 3/8% senior notes due 2018 and $400 million of 8 3/8% senior notes due 2021.  The net proceeds from the issuance of these notes (approximately $666.8 million) were used to repurchase or repay $575.7 million principal amount of indebtedness due between 2012 and 2015 and to extinguish a $24.5 million liability associated with the termination of the Company's Term Loan B interest rate swap arrangement.  As a result of these transactions, the Company recognized a $23.8 million charge from the early extinguishment of debt, $21.7 million of which was a cash charge related to tender premiums and other related costs and $2.1 million related to the write-off of deferred debt issuance costs.  The $24.5 million cost associated with the early unwind of the Company?s interest rate swap related to the Term Loan B will be amortized over a period of approximately 2.3 years.  As a result of these refinancing transactions, the Company reduced the principal amount of its debt maturing prior to September 2016 from approximately $665 million to $89 million and eliminated substantially all of the restrictive covenants contained in the supplemental indentures governing the 2012, 2014 and 2015 notes.The Company generated a $9.1 million income tax benefit during the 2010 fourth quarter related to the current quarter loss which was fully offset by a noncash deferred tax asset valuation allowance for the same amount.  In addition, the Company recorded a $1.2 million tax benefit related to a net reduction of its liability for uncertain tax positions during the 2010 fourth quarter due primarily to the expiration of statutes of limitations related to state income taxes.  During the three months and year ended December 31, 2010, the Company recorded a noncash reduction of its deferred tax asset of $8.8 million and $22.9 million, respectively, and a corresponding noncash reduction of its deferred tax asset valuation allowance primarily related to built-in losses realized during these periods that were in excess of the Section 382 annual limitation.  As of December 31, 2010, the Company had a $516.4 million deferred tax asset valuation allowance.The Company used $52.5 million of cash flows from operating activities for the 2010 fourth quarter versus generating $109.7 million of cash flows from operating activities in the 2009 fourth quarter.  The decline in cash flows from operations as compared to the 2009 fourth quarter was driven primarily by a $127.4 million decrease in homebuilding revenues (including a $37.6 million decrease in land sale revenues), a $24.5 payment made to unwind the Term Loan B interest rate swap and $6.5 million of accelerated interest payments made in connection with the 2010 fourth quarter tender and debt restructure.  Cash outflows from operations for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 also included $33.6 million and $35.3 million, respectively, of cash land purchases.  Excluding cash land purchases, land sales, and $31.0 million of accelerated payments related to the debt restructure, cash inflows from operating activities for the 2010 fourth quarter were $10.4 million* versus $110.3 million* in the 2009 fourth quarter.  In addition, during the 2010 fourth quarter, the Company generated $239.5 million of cash flows from financing activities, which included approximately $187.5 million of proceeds related to the issuance of the Company's common stock in connection with the early exercise of a warrant.Net new orders (excluding joint ventures) for the 2010 fourth quarter decreased 22% from the 2009 fourth quarter to 428 homes on an 8% increase in the number of average active selling communities from 124 to 134.  The Company's monthly sales absorption rate for the 2010 fourth quarter was 1.1 per community compared to 1.5 per community for the 2009 fourth quarter.  The Company's cancellation rate for the 2010 fourth quarter was 23% versus 21% for the 2009 fourth quarter and 19% for the 2010 third quarter.  The total number of sales cancellations for the 2010 fourth quarter was 130, of which 71 cancellations related to homes in the Company's 2010 fourth quarter beginning backlog and 59 related to orders generated during the quarter.  The dollar value of homes in backlog (excluding joint ventures) decreased 34% to $137.4 million, or 414 homes, compared to $207.9 million, or 599 homes, for the 2009 fourth quarter.  The decrease in backlog value was driven primarily by a 22% decrease in net new orders and a 4% decline in average home price in backlog from $347,000 to $332,000.  During the 2010 fourth quarter, the Company approved (but had not yet consummated) the purchase of $45.0 million of land, comprised of approximately 1,400 lots, 13% of which are finished and 87% are raw.  During the same period, the Company purchased approximately 750 lots valued at $33.6 million.  Approximately 36% of the land purchases related to land located in California and 38% in Texas, with the balance spread throughout the Company's other operations.  For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company purchased approximately 5,400 lots valued at $315.4 million ($282.4 million of which were land purchases and $33.0 million were acquired through an investment in a joint venture).

companies may calculate such non-GAAP measures differently.  Due to the significance of the GAAP components excluded, such measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to operating performance measures prescribed by GAAP.The table set forth below reconciles the Company's net loss to net income excluding asset impairment charges (net of a 38% income tax benefit), loss on early extinguishment of debt (net of a 38% income tax benefit), and the deferred tax asset valuation allowance related to these charges.  We believe this measure is useful to management and investors as it provides perspective on the underlying operating performance of the business excluding these charges and provides comparability with the Company?s peer group.  Net income excluding asset impairment charges (net of income tax benefit), loss on early extinguishment of debt (net of income tax benefit), and the deferred tax asset valuation allowance related to these charges for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010 is calculated as follows:Three Months EndedYear EndedDecember 31, 2010December 31, 2010(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)Net

provides the Company's total debt to book capitalization and adjusted net homebuilding debt to total adjusted book capitalization ratios.  We believe that the adjusted net homebuilding debt to total adjusted book capitalization ratio is useful to management and investors as a measure of the Company's ability to obtain financing.  For purposes of the ratio of adjusted net homebuilding debt to total adjusted book capitalization, total adjusted book capitalization is adjusted net homebuilding debt plus stockholders' equity.  Adjusted net homebuilding debt excludes indebtedness included in liabilities from inventories not owned, indebtedness of the Company's financial services subsidiary and additionally reflects the offset of cash and equivalents.  As of December 31,20102009(Dollars in

pro forma common shares outstanding include the if-converted Series B Preferred Stock, and excludes 3.9 million shares issued under a share lending agreement related to the Company's 6% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes.  The Company believes that the pro forma stockholders' equity per common share information is useful to management and investors as a measure to determine the book value per common share after giving effect of the issuance of preferred shares assuming full conversion to common stock and excluding shares outstanding under the share lending agreement.
