“This was an important quarter for the Company. Not only did we continue to improve our year-over-year performance across a number of operating and financial metrics, we also completed our acquisition of Polygon Northwest Homes, the largest private homebuilder in the Pacific Northwest,” said William H. Lyon, Chief Executive Officer. “We realized significant increases in home sales revenue, the dollar value of orders and backlog, and the number of active selling communities. Our net income was $5.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, or $10.2 million and $0.31 per diluted share as adjusted to exclude one-time transaction expenses. We are excited to welcome the Polygon team into the William Lyon Homes family as we expand our geographic footprint and increase the scale of our existing operations within the Western region of the U.S. by adding Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington to our operating platform. While the sales environment in some of our markets has been less robust than desired, we believe that our operating strategy of focusing on the best residential markets in the western United States will allow us to continue to drive outsized growth and shareholder value.”

Matthew R. Zaist, President and Chief Operating Officer, stated, “We are extremely proud of the continued progress of our operating teams as evident in our third quarter results. On a fully combined pro forma basis for the quarter, homebuilding revenues topped $230 million, new home deliveries of 518 were up 46% and new home orders of 495 were up almost 60%. We believe that the scale of the combined company will allow us to meaningfully drive top line growth, while the cost synergies of the transaction will allow us to continue to drive efficiencies on the SG&A side of our business.” Mr. Zaist continued, “The fourth quarter is off to a strong start, as we have seen strong growth in October, with year-over-year increases in new home orders of 103%, new home deliveries of 47%, and homebuilding revenue of 51% as compared to October 2013. In the fourth quarter of 2014, we anticipate 650 to 700 new home deliveries and homebuilding revenue between $300 million and $330 million.”

Operating Results

Home sales revenue for the third quarter of 2014 was $196.1 million, as compared to $141.4 million in the year-ago period, an increase of 39%. Our performance was driven by a 19% increase in the number of deliveries to 424 homes and a 16% increase in the average sales price of homes delivered to $462,500 in the quarter, compared to 356 homes delivered and a $397,100 average sales price, respectively, in the year-ago period. Average sales price of homes delivered increased in most of our divisions, driven by price appreciation in certain communities and a 105% increase in deliveries in Southern California with ASPs of $574,500. Included in this quarter’s results, since August 12, 2014, were revenues from the newly acquired Washington and Oregon divisions of $38.9 million combined, consisting of 104 homes delivered at an average sales price of $374,100.

The dollar value of our orders for the third quarter of 2014 was $199.2 million, an increase of 40%, from $142.4 million in the year-ago period. Net new home orders for the quarter were 422, up 35% from 312 in the third quarter of 2013. The overall increase in net new home orders was driven by an increase in community count to 49 average sales locations, from 26 in the year-ago period, offset by a decrease in absorption from 4.0 sales per project per month in the year-ago period to 2.9 sales per month in the current period. Absorption was strong in the Pacific Northwest at 1.3 sales per project per week, as well as in Southern California at 0.9 sales per project per week. We ended the quarter with 55 active selling communities, a 90% increase as compared to 29 active selling communities at the end of the year-ago period.

Including the newly acquired Washington and Oregon divisions, the dollar value of homes in backlog was $382.9 million as of September 30, 2014, an increase of 84% compared to $208.1 million as of September 30, 2013. The increase was driven by a 56% increase in units in backlog to 728 from 467 in the year-ago period and an increase in the average sales price of homes in backlog to $525,900, up 18% from $445,600 in the year-ago period, and up 14% from the averages sales price of homes closed during the third quarter of 2014 of $462,500.

Homebuilding gross margins for the third quarter of 2014 were 19.6%, as compared to gross margins of 23.6% in the year-ago period. The decrease in gross margin is attributable to a lower number of homes closed during the quarter that benefit from fresh start accounting, primarily in Southern California and Nevada. In addition, with the adoption of purchase accounting related to the Polygon acquisition, GAAP margins were impacted by 200 basis points. Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage was 24.6% during the third quarter of 2014, as compared to 30.2% in the year-ago period.

Breaking down the components of SG&A, sales and marketing expense was 6.4% of homebuilding revenue during the third quarter of 2014, compared to 4.7% in the year-ago quarter, driven by higher advertising and model operations costs associated with the startup of new models and an increase in total selling communities. Excluding one-time transaction expenses, general administrative expenses decreased to 6.5% of homebuilding revenue, compared to 7.2% in the year-ago quarter, as we continued to leverage higher revenues with a lower relative cost structure.

Balance Sheet Update

At quarter end, cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $35.6 million, escrow proceeds receivable totaled $14.6 million, real estate inventories totaled $1,378.4 million and total debt was $1,041.7 million. Net debt to net book capitalization was 68.1%, and total debt to total book capitalization was 68.9% at September 30, 2014.

(1) Adjusted homebuilding gross margin is a financial measure that is not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”). It is used by management in evaluating operating performance and in making strategic decisions regarding sales pricing, construction and development pace, product mix and other operating decisions. We believe this information is meaningful as it isolates the impact that interest and purchase accounting has on homebuilding gross margin and allows investors to make better comparisons with our competitors. For comparative purposes, purchase accounting is the net adjustment in basis related to the acquisition of our Colorado, Washington and Oregon operating divisions.
