Gross margin from home sales for the 2011 third quarter was 15.8% (18.8%* excluding $7.3 million of inventory impairment charges) versus 17.0% (20.0%* excluding $6.0 million of inventory impairment charges) for the prior quarter.   The 120 basis point decline in the 2011 third quarter adjusted gross margin from home sales was driven by lower margins in substantially all of the Company's markets due to general price softening and a mix shift to more deliveries from lower margin projects.  The impairments related to two homebuilding projects in Northern California totaling $5.7 million, one homebuilding project in Arizona for $0.8 million and one homebuilding project in the Carolinas for $0.8 million.  Excluding inventory impairment charges and previously capitalized interest costs, gross margin from home sales for the 2011 third quarter was 26.6%* versus 27.9%* for the 2011 second quarter.    The Company's 2011 third quarter SG&A expenses (including Corporate G&A) were $39.1 million compared to $38.4 million for the 2011 second quarter and included noncash stock-based compensation expenses of $2.6 million and $3.5 million, respectively.  The Company's 2011 third quarter SG&A expenses included $0.6 million in restructuring charges related to the implementation of our plan to reduce the fixed portion of our G&A expenses for 2012 by 10% as compared to 2011.  The Company's 2011 third quarter SG&A rate from home sales was 16.2% versus 17.6% for the 2010 third quarter.  Excluding restructuring charges, the Company's 2011 third quarter SG&A rate was 15.9%*.  The improvement in the Company's SG&A rate was primarily the result of a 17% increase in revenues from home sales, partially offset by higher sales and marketing costs associated with new community openings. The Company's G&A expenses (excluding incentive compensation and restructuring charges) were $22.8 million for the 2011 third quarter, and have remained stable, ranging from $22.4 million to $22.8 million per quarter since the 2010 first quarter.Net new orders (excluding joint ventures) for the 2011 third quarter increased 38% from the 2010 third quarter to 764 homes on a 21% increase in the number of average active selling communities from 131 to 159.  The Company's monthly sales absorption rate for the 2011 third quarter was 1.6 per community compared to 1.4 per community for the 2010 third quarter and 1.7 per community for the 2011 second quarter.  The Company's cancellation rate for the 2011 third quarter was 16%, compared to 19% for the 2010 third quarter and 14% for the 2011 second quarter.  The total number of sales cancellations for the 2011 third quarter was 144, of which 81 cancellations related to homes in the Company's 2011 third quarter beginning backlog and 63 related to orders generated during the quarter.  The dollar value of homes in backlog (excluding joint ventures) increased 42% to $304.8 million, or 848 homes, compared to $214.2 million, or 605 homes, for the 2010 third quarter, and increased 4% compared to $293.8 million, or 781 homes, for the 2011 second quarter.  The increase in backlog value was driven primarily by a 38% increase in net new orders as compared to the prior year period.  The Company used $78.5 million of cash in operating activities for the 2011 third quarter versus $67.4 million of cash used in operating activities in the 2010 third quarter.  Cash flows used in operating activities for the 2011 third quarter included cash land purchases and land development costs of $74.7 million and $31.7 million, respectively, compared to $91.3 million and $22.3 million, respectively, for the 2010 third quarter.  Excluding land and development costs, cash inflows from operating activities for the 2011 third quarter were $27.9 million* versus cash inflows of $46.1 million* in the 2010 third quarter.  The decrease in cash inflows from operating activities (excluding land and development costs) as compared to the 2010 third quarter was primarily due to a $47 million decrease in cash flows attributable to the timing of the origination and sale of mortgage loans held for sale by the Company's financial services subsidiary, offset by the increase in cash inflows as a result of a 16% increase in deliveries compared to the prior year period.  During the 2011 third quarter, the Company approved the purchase of $55 million of land, comprised of 1,280 lots.  Approximately 46% of the land approved (based on land value) was for land located in California, 21% in Florida, 20% in Texas and 13% in the Carolinas.  During the same period, the Company purchased $74.7 million of land, comprised of 1,682 lots.  Approximately 62% of the land purchased (based on land value) is located in California and 24% in Florida, with the balance spread throughout the Company's other operations.    Earnings Conference CallA conference call to discuss the Company's 2011 third quarter results will be held at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time October 28, 2011.  The call will be broadcast live over the Internet and can be accessed through the Company's website at http://ir.standardpacifichomes.com.  The call will also be accessible via telephone by dialing (888) 596-2581 (domestic) or (913) 312-0385 (international); Passcode: 1266541.

FINANCIAL MEASURESEach of the below measures are non-GAAP financial measures and other 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 inventory impairment charges and deposit write-offs (net of a 39% income tax benefit), restructuring charges (net of a 39% 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 inventory impairment charges and deposit write-offs (net of income tax benefit), restructuring charges (net of income tax benefit), and the deferred tax asset valuation allowance related to these charges for the three months ended September 30, 2011 is calculated as follows:Three Months

calculates EBITDA and Adjusted Homebuilding EBITDA.  Adjusted Homebuilding EBITDA means net income (loss) (plus cash distributions of income from unconsolidated joint ventures) before (a) income taxes, (b) homebuilding interest expense (c) expensing of previously capitalized interest included in cost of sales, (d) impairment charges and deposit write-offs, (e) (gain) loss on early extinguishment of debt (f) homebuilding depreciation and amortization, (g) amortization of stock-based compensation, (h) income (loss) from unconsolidated joint ventures and (i) income (loss) from financial services subsidiary.  Other companies may calculate Adjusted Homebuilding EBITDA (or similarly titled measures) differently.  We believe Adjusted Homebuilding EBITDA information is useful to management and investors as one measure of the Company's ability to service debt and obtain financing.  Adjusted Homebuilding EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and due to the significance of the GAAP components excluded, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flow from operations or any other operating or liquidity performance measure prescribed by GAAP.Three Months EndedLTM Ended September 30,September 30,2011September 30,2010June 30,201120112010(Dollars in thousands)Net income (loss)$(6,434)$4,543$(10,519)$(53,607)$92,796Provision (benefit)

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.September 30,2011June 30,2011December 31,2010September 30,2010(Dollars in
