Homex Announces Not To Execute Its Capital Increase Plan During 2010

CULIACAN, SINALOA, Mexico, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Desarrolladora Homex, S.A.B. de C.V. (Homex or the Company) (NYSE: HXM, BMV: HOMEX) announced that during the Board of Directors meeting held on Friday, January 29th, the Board along with the Company's Management team, and according to Homex' shareholders approved faculties at the General Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting held on November 20th, resolved not to execute its Capital Expansion Plan during 2010.  

The Company decided to cancel the plan after successfully concluding the private placement of US$250 million bond through which Homex has extended its average debt maturity profile from an average of 4.5 years to an average of 6.3 years, thus importantly reducing its need for capital, while maintaining its financial ratios and improving the Company's liquidity.

"As we walk into 2010, I feel confident that Homex is well prepared to tap new and exciting opportunities, and that we have taken the appropriate steps at the right time to maintain a sound balance sheet, positioning us  to gain market share and prudently broaden the scope of our operations," said Gerardo de Nicolas, Chief Executive Officer of Homex. "In addition, the challenging economic environment experienced during 2009, encouraged us to keep working diligently to improve our efficiency and strengthen our financial performance during 2010,"  concluded de Nicolas.
