Hovnanian Enterprises Reports Fiscal 2019 First Quarter Results

11% Sequential Increase in Consolidated Community Count
Consolidated Lots Controlled Grew 11% Year-over-Year
February Net Contracts Rebound to Above Last Year’s Strong Levels

MATAWAN, N.J., March 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: HOV), a leading national homebuilder, reported results for its fiscal first quarter ended January 31, 2019.

“Our first quarter results were in line with our expectations. During the quarter, when compared to the prior year, we increased our consolidated land position, grew our earnings from unconsolidated joint ventures and improved our pretax results,” stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “After our weak November net contracts, we are pleased that contracts per community for December, January and February have rebounded to levels similar to last year’s strong results. In fact, for February, contracts per community, community count and absolute net contracts increased compared with the prior year.”

“We continue to move forward towards our goal of growing our community count and revenues, which ultimately should lead to substantially improved levels of profitability. During the first quarter, we increased our consolidated community count 11% compared to October 31, 2018 and grew our consolidated land position by 11% year over year as well. Our growth in land position this quarter was entirely driven by an increase in our option lot position, while our owned land position declined slightly. In keeping with our strategy of high inventory turns and risk mitigation, we now control 58% of our land via options. We remain disciplined in our approach to underwriting new land opportunities and believe that the strong U.S. economy, along with positive demographic trends, should bode well for the housing market going forward,” concluded Mr. Hovnanian.
