Referring to the fiscal 2013 third quarter results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased with the continued contributions and progress of our acquired businesses. However, increasing homebuilding component and raw material costs, continued competitive pricing pressures, market demand for smaller and lower price-point homes and a higher income tax provision adversely affected our earnings during the quarter. The average sales price per home was approximately $50,100 during the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared to $53,200 during the third quarter last year, a 5.8% decrease. On a positive note, home sales increased this quarter to 2,065 homes, 4.7% higher than 1,972 homes sold during the same quarter last year.""We continue to expand our presence in key markets in the United States and have made progress in other regions. Our financial services subsidiaries are broadening their product offerings to manufactured home buyers in current and new geographic areas, and continue to be solid contributors to our financial results. Rising apartment occupancy rates and higher rental costs should make affordable manufactured housing an increasingly attractive alternative for many people. As employment and consumer confidence levels improve, we anticipate rising demand for our homes," Mr. Stegmayer concluded.
