  • SG&A as a percentage of revenue improved to 18.4%, compared to 21.6% in FY 2012's first quarter, due primarily to increased revenue volume.
  • The Company ended its first quarter with 225 selling communities, compared to 224 at FYE 2012, and 228 at FY 2012's first-quarter end.
  • At FY 2013's first-quarter end, the Company had approximately 43,700 lots owned and optioned, compared to approximately 40,400 at FYE 2012 and approximately 39,700 one year ago.

Douglas C. Yearley, Jr., Toll Brothers' chief executive officer, stated: "Demand has increased. With our first quarter contracts up 49%, and contracts for the first three weeks of our second quarter up 40% versus comparable periods in FY 2012, it appears that momentum is building.
