During the 2012 fourth quarter, the Company reversed a portion of its deferred tax valuation allowance, recognizing a $454 million benefit.  Following this reversal, the Company's remaining deferred tax valuation allowance stood at approximately $23 million, which as of December 31, 2012, partially offsets the Company's $478 million deferred tax asset.  Net new orders for the 2012 fourth quarter increased 60% from the 2011 fourth quarter to 983 homes.  The 60% year-over-year growth is primarily attributable to a 70% increase in the Company's monthly sales absorption rate to 2.2 per community for the 2012 fourth quarter, compared to 1.3 per community for the 2011 fourth quarter, and a 3% increase from 2.1 per community for the 2012 third quarter.  The 3% quarter-over-quarter increase bucked the historical seasonal trend, which averaged down 19% over the last fifteen years.     The dollar value of homes in backlog increased 122% to $515.5 million, or 1,404 homes, compared to $232.6 million, or 681 homes, for the 2011 fourth quarter, and increased 3% compared to $498.7 million, or 1,394 homes, for the 2012 third quarter.  The increase in year-over-year backlog value was driven primarily by a 60% increase in net new orders and a shift to more to-be-built homes.  The Company used $112.0 million of cash in operating activities for the 2012 fourth quarter versus $12.0 million in the 2011 fourth quarter.  During the 2012 fourth quarter, the Company spent $267.6 million on land purchases and development costs, compared to $86.3 million for the 2011 fourth quarter.  Excluding land purchases and development costs, cash inflows from operating activities for the 2012 fourth quarter were $155.6 million* versus $74.3 million* in the 2011 fourth quarter.  The year-over-year increase in cash inflows from operating activities (excluding land purchases and development costs) was primarily due to a 29% increase in home sale revenues.  The Company purchased $204.8 million of land (3,085 homesites) during the 2012 fourth quarter, of which 21% (based on homesites) was located in California, 49% in Florida, 13% in Arizona and 10% in Texas, with the balance spread throughout the Company's other operations.  The Company purchased $542.1 million of land (9,344 homesites) during the year ended December 31, 2012, of which 39% (based on homesites) was located in California, 25% in Florida, 18% in the Carolinas and 12% in Texas, with the balance spread throughout the Company's other operations.  As of December 31, 2012, the Company owned or controlled 30,767 homesites, of which 19,219 are owned and actively selling or under development, 5,292 are controlled or under option, and the remaining 6,256 homesites are held for future development or for sale.  The homesites owned that are actively selling or under development represent a 5.8 year supply based on the Company's deliveries for the year ended December 31, 2012.   Earnings Conference CallA conference call to discuss the Company's 2012 fourth quarter results will be held at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time February 1, 2013.  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) 221-9542 (domestic) or (913) 312-1507 (international); Passcode: 5053434.  The audio transmission with the slide presentation will be available on our website for replay within 2 to 3 hours following the live broadcast, and can be accessed by dialing (888) 203-1112 (domestic) or (719) 457-0820 (international); Passcode: 5053434.

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 income to net income excluding the partial reversal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance during the 2012 fourth quarter.  We believe this measure is useful to management and investors as it provides perspective on the underlying operating performance of the business excluding the benefit from the valuation allowance reversal and provides comparability with the Company's peer group.  Net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the reversal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 is calculated as follows:  Three Months EndedYear EndedDecember 31, 2012December 31, 2012(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)Net income$486,925$531,421Less:

the Company's total consolidated debt to adjusted net homebuilding debt and provides the Company's total consolidated 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 of the Company's financial services subsidiary and additionally reflects the offset of cash and equivalents. At December

outstanding include common shares issuable upon conversion of our outstanding 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 remaining 3.9 million shares were returned to the Company in October 2012, in connection with the maturity of 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 to the conversion of our outstanding preferred shares assuming full conversion to common stock and excluding shares previously outstanding under the share lending agreement.

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 EndedYear Ended December 31,December 31,2012December 31,2011September
