Hovnanian Enterprises Reports Fiscal 2018 First Quarter Results

Share:

Total Lots Controlled Increased Year Over Year for First Time in Two Years
Enhanced Capital Structure Through Over $500 Million of Financing Transactions

MATAWAN, N.J., March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:HOV), a leading national homebuilder, reported results for its fiscal first quarter ended January 31, 2018.

"For the first time in two years, we increased the number of total lots we controlled, which should ultimately lead to community count, revenue and profit growth," stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Hovnanian's position is further strengthened by our recent financing transactions with GSO, along with a commitment for an additional $216 million of capital from GSO which together extend our debt maturities and provide additional stability to our capital structure."

"The Company remains in a transition period due to the adverse impacts from having to pay off $320 million of debt in late 2015 and 2016 when the high yield market was closed to us and other companies with similar credit ratings. As a result, we were unable to replenish our land position sufficiently in 2016 and 2017. This led to a reduction in community count and revenues, impacting our overall profitability. We are confident the most challenging quarter for fiscal 2018 is behind us and we expect future quarters this year should yield improved operating results, as we continue to rebuild our company," concluded Mr. Hovnanian.

RESULTS FOR THE THREE-MONTHS ENDED JANUARY 31, 2018:

  • Total revenues decreased 24.4% to $417.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared with $552.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.
