Scott Stowell, the Company's Chief Executive Officer commented, "I am pleased with our strong financial performance in 2013, the fourth most profitable year in Standard Pacific Homes' nearly 50-year history and our highest annual pretax earnings since 2005."  Mr. Stowell added, "The execution of our strategy continues to drive top line revenue and profitability and is reflected in our strong results."  

Revenues from home sales for the 2013 fourth quarter increased 58%, to $598.5 million, as compared to the prior year period, resulting primarily from a 38% increase in new home deliveries and a 15% increase in the Company's consolidated average home price to $446 thousand.  The increase in average home price was primarily attributable to general price increases within a majority of the Company's markets and a decrease in the use of sales incentives.  The increase in new home deliveries was driven by a 50% year-over-year increase in the number of homes in beginning backlog expected to close during the quarter. 

Gross margin from home sales for the 2013 fourth quarter increased to 26.8% compared to 20.8% in the prior year period.  The 600 basis point year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to price increases and a decrease in the use of sales incentives.  Excluding previously capitalized interest costs, gross margin from home sales was 32.2%* for the 2013 fourth quarter versus 28.9%* for the 2012 fourth quarter.    

The Company's 2013 fourth quarter SG&A expenses (including Corporate G&A) were $67.9 million compared to $49.4 million, down 180 basis points as a percentage of home sale revenues to 11.3%, compared to 13.1% for the 2012 fourth quarter.  The improvement in the Company's SG&A rate was primarily due to a 58% increase in revenues from home sales and reflects the operating leverage inherent in our business.

Net new orders for the 2013 fourth quarter decreased 11% from the 2012 fourth quarter to 878 homes.  The year-over-year decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease in the Company's monthly sales absorption rate to 1.7 per community for the 2013 fourth quarter, compared to 2.2 per community in both the 2012 fourth quarter and the 2013 third quarter. The Company's cancellation rate for the 2013 fourth quarter was 21%, compared to 15% for the 2012 fourth quarter and 20% for the 2013 third quarter.  Our 2013 fourth quarter cancellation rate increased from the historically low levels we experienced in the prior year period, but was consistent with our average historical cancellation rate over the last 10 years.  As a percentage of beginning backlog our cancellation rate was 7.9% in the quarter, a 20 basis point increase from the same period last year.    

The dollar value of homes in backlog increased 55% to $800.5 million, or 1,700 homes, compared to $515.5 million, or 1,404 homes, as of the end of fiscal year 2012, and was down 17% compared to $964.1 million, or 2,165 homes, as of the end of the 2013 third quarter.  The increase in year-over-year backlog value was driven primarily by a 28% increase in the average selling price of the homes in backlog, reflecting the continued execution of our strategy to focus on the move-up buyer, the shift to more to-be-built homes that have a longer construction cycle, and pricing opportunities in select markets.

Cash used in operating activities was $27.8 million for the 2013 fourth quarter versus $112.0 million in the 2012 fourth quarter.  During the 2013 fourth quarter, the Company spent $216.0 million on land purchases and development costs, compared to $270.7 million for the 2012 fourth quarter.  Excluding land purchases and development costs, cash inflows from operating activities for the 2013 fourth quarter were $185.7 million* versus $158.8 million* in the 2012 fourth quarter.  The year-over-year increase in cash inflows from operating activities (excluding land purchases and development costs) was primarily due to a 58% increase in home sale revenues. 

The Company purchased $116.9 million of land (2,231 homesites) during the 2013 fourth quarter, of which 38% (based on homesites) was located in Florida, 22% in the Carolinas, 20% in Texas and 16% in California, with the balance spread throughout the Company's other operations.  As of December 31, 2013, the Company owned or controlled 35,175 homesites, of which 22,790 are owned and actively selling or under development, 7,442 are controlled or under option, and the remaining 4,943 homesites are held for future development or for sale.  The homesites owned that are actively selling or under development represent a 5.0 year supply based on the Company's deliveries for the year ended December 31, 2013.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Each 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 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:

The table set forth below reconciles the Company's cash flows provided by (used in) operations to cash inflows from operations excluding land purchases and development costs.  We believe this measure is useful to management and investors to provide perspective on underlying cash flow generation excluding swings related to the timing of land purchases and development costs.

The table set forth below reconciles 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.

The table set forth below 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.
