“During third quarter we completed the acquisition of CREDO Petroleum, which is expected to generate attractive returns and additional value for shareholders, and provide a platform to accelerate value realization of our mineral assets. In addition, we finished the quarter with a solid balance sheet and over $170 million in available liquidity. Oil production remains well above 2011 levels and we are seeing renewed interest in mineral leasing associated with exploration for oil and liquids. Housing market conditions remain relatively steady and we continue to build a solid pipeline of multifamily development properties. In addition, we are generating significant cash flow and solid returns from the sale of our stabilized multifamily assets,” said Jim DeCosmo, president and chief executive officer of Forestar Group. “We are well positioned to accelerate value realization, capitalize on strategic growth opportunities and grow net asset value.”
