“The continued expansion of our homebuilding platform in the second quarter further positions us to execute our strategic growth objectives in 2014 and coming years,” stated Larry Webb, Chief Executive Officer. “As a result of an increase in actively selling communities during the quarter, we increased backlog dollar value by 122% for owned projects and 32% for unconsolidated joint venture projects. We remained disciplined with our land acquisition strategy and continue to focus on well-located, premium lots in our target California markets. In June, we closed our unsecured revolving credit facility with U.S. Bank, which strengthens our balance sheet and provides us with additional capital to continue expanding our homebuilding activities. We're very comfortable with our Company’s strategy and foundation for growth and are well positioned to generate attractive returns for shareholders.”

Second quarter 2014 operating results

Total revenues for the second quarter 2014 were $22.5 million, compared to $19.1 million in the prior year period. The net loss for the second quarter 2014 was $1.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the prior year period. The change in net income was primarily due to a decrease in equity in net income from JVs, a decline in fee building activity and related gross margin and an increase in SG&A.

Wholly Owned Projects

Home sales revenue for the second quarter 2014 was $9.6 million, compared to $8.6 million in the prior year period and new home deliveries were 13 for the second quarter 2014, compared to 22 in the prior year period. The average selling price of homes delivered was approximately $739,000 compared to $389,000 in the prior year period. The increase in average selling prices was primarily due to a change in product mix to communities with higher average sales prices. The Company expects that the average selling price will continue to vary from quarter to quarter due to the mix of product offered and the introduction of new communities.

Homebuilding gross margin percentage for the second quarter 2014 was 17.6%, compared to 17.0% in the prior year period. Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage*, which excludes interest in cost of home sales, was 18.1%, compared to 18.4% in the prior year period, mainly attributable to a reduction in interest in cost of home sales related to a community nearing close-out. SG&A expense for the second quarter 2014 was $3.4 million, compared to $1.6 million in the prior year period. As a percent of home sales revenue, SG&A was 35.6% for the second quarter 2014, compared to 19.3% in the prior year period. The increase in SG&A was a result of increased activity related to the Company's communities, three of which opened for sale in the second quarter, and an increase in stock-based compensation and professional fees and costs associated with being a publicly traded company.

New home orders were 23 in the second quarter 2014, compared to 27 homes in the prior year period. The Company had four actively selling communities at the end of the second quarter and three at the end of the prior year period. At the end of the second quarter 2014, the number of homes in backlog was 25, representing approximately $39.6 million of backlog dollar value, compared to 35 homes the prior year period, representing approximately $17.8 million of backlog dollar value. The average selling price of homes in backlog at the end of the second quarter 2014 was $1,583,000 compared to $509,000 at the end of the prior year period. The increase in average selling price of homes in backlog was primarily the result of a change in product mix, driven by the introduction of sales in higher priced communities.

Unconsolidated Joint Ventures (JVs)

The Company’s share of net income from JVs for the second quarter 2014 was $0.2 million, compared to $0.4 million in the prior year period. The recognition of such income is significantly impacted by both the homes delivered as well as the point in time within the JV lifecycle when the homes are delivered.

The following sets forth supplemental information about the Company’s JVs. Such information is not included in the Company’s financial data for GAAP purposes. Home sales revenue of the JVs was $30.9 million and net income was $3.0 million for the second quarter 2014, compared to $34.9 million and $6.2 million in the prior year period, respectively. New home deliveries increased to 44 for the second quarter 2014, compared to 25 in the prior year period primarily due to an increase in average selling communities. The average selling price of homes delivered in JVs was $703,000 compared to $1,394,000 in the prior year period due to a higher mix of new homes delivered from lower priced communities. Homebuilding gross margin percentage generated by the JVs for the second quarter 2014 was 21.3%, compared to 26.2% in the prior year period. Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage* of the JVs, which excludes interest in cost of home sales, was 22.7%, compared to 28.6% in the prior year period.

New home orders in JVs were 84 for the second quarter 2014, compared to 36 new homes in the prior year period, primarily due to an increase in average selling communities. At the end of the second quarter 2014, the JVs had 141 homes in backlog, representing approximately $142.2 million of backlog dollar value, compared to 70 homes in the prior year period, representing approximately $107.5 million of backlog dollar value.

Fee Building Projects

Fee building revenue for the second quarter 2014 was $12.9 million, compared to $10.6 million in the prior year period. Management fees from JVs were $1.6 million for the second quarter 2014, compared to $1.5 million in the prior year period. The increase in fee building revenue was due to four new fee building agreements and the increase in management fees from unconsolidated joint ventures. Fee building gross margin for the second quarter 2014 was ($0.1) million, compared to $0.7 million in the prior year period. The results for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were negatively impacted by a delay in the timing of home starts in certain communities related to fee building projects and a delay in the timing of home closings related to certain communities owned by our unconsolidated joint ventures.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

In June 2014, the Company closed a $125.0 million senior unsecured credit facility with US Bank, which replaced the prior $30.0 million secured revolving credit facility. As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $52.3 million of cash and cash equivalents and $95.3 million in available loan commitments.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(unaudited)

In this earnings release, we utilize certain 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 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.

The following tables reconcile homebuilding gross margin percentage, as reported and prepared in accordance with GAAP, to the non-GAAP measure adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage. We believe this information is meaningful, as it isolates the impact leverage has on homebuilding gross margin and permits investors to make better comparisons with our competitors, who adjust gross margins in a similar fashion.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (continued)
(unaudited)

The following table reconciles the Company’s ratio of debt-to-capital to the ratio of net debt-to-capital. We believe that the ratio of net debt-to-capital is a relevant financial measure for management and investors to understand the leverage employed in our operations and as an indicator of the Company’s ability to obtain financing.

Notes payable $ 48,676,152 $ 17,883,338
Equity, exclusive of non-controlling interest 141,940,934   64,355,719  
Total capital $ 190,617,086   $ 82,239,057  
Ratio of debt-to-capital (1) 25.5 % 21.7 %
 
Notes payable $ 48,676,152 $ 17,883,338
Less: cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash 55,992,117   9,671,576  
Net debt 8,211,762
Equity, exclusive of non-controlling interest 141,940,934   64,355,719  
Total capital $ 141,940,934   $ 72,567,481  
Ratio of net debt-to-capital (2) % 11.3 %
(1)   The ratio of debt-to-capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing notes payable by the sum of total notes payable plus equity, exclusive of non-controlling interest.
 
(2) The ratio of net debt-to-capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing net debt (which is notes payable less cash to the extent necessary to reduce the debt balance to zero) by total capital, exclusive of non-controlling interest. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is the ratio of debt-to-capital. We believe the ratio of net debt-to-capital is a relevant financial measure for investors to understand the leverage employed in our operations and as an indicator of our ability to obtain financing. We believe that by deducting our cash from our notes payable, we provide a measure of our indebtedness that takes into account our cash liquidity. We believe this provides useful information as the ratio of debt-to-capital does not take into account our liquidity and we believe that the ratio net of cash provides supplemental information by which our financial position may be considered. Investors may also find this to be helpful when comparing our leverage to the leverage of our competitors that present similar information. See the table above reconciling this non-GAAP financial measure to the ratio of debt-to-capital.
