“We are very excited about the results from our recent acquisition of GHO Homes”, said Rick Costello, CFO of Green Brick Partners, Inc. “The addition of GHO Homes, whose homes are at lower price points than our other builders, accounts for most of the decline in the average sales price of backlog and in the average sales price of closed units for the three months ended September 30, 2018. More importantly, we have recorded $29.8 million in homebuilding revenues from GHO Homes since the acquisition in April 2018. Green Brick’s share of GHO Homes’ pre-tax income is $3.0 million before purchase accounting adjustments of $0.6 million. GHO Homes also added $74.0 million to our backlog as of September 30, 2018.”

“Despite operating in the wettest September in Dallas history, we had a record setting third quarter with revenue up 31.9% and net income attributable to Green Brick Partners up 31.4%. In addition, despite a more competitive operating environment, our backlog is up over 87% from September 30, 2017. Furthermore, Green Brick Mortgage is now operational and staged for significant growth”, said Jim Brickman, CEO of Green Brick Partners, Inc.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In this press release, we utilize certain financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. We present these measures because we believe they and similar measures are useful to management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating performance and financing structure. We also believe these measures facilitate the comparison of our operating performance and financing structure with other companies in our industry. Because these measures are not calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
