Comstock Holding Companies, Inc. Reports Second-Quarter 2013 Results

Comstock Holding Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHCI) (“Comstock” or the “Company”), a homebuilding and multi-faceted real estate development and services company in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, today announced results for the second quarter of 2013, ended June 30.

Business Update

“For the second consecutive quarter, our homebuilding revenue for just three months approximated the homebuilding revenue we generated for the full year 2012,” remarked Chairman and CEO Christopher Clemente. “These results reflect the rebounding demand for new homes in the Washington, D.C. area and the positive response to the new communities and products Comstock is bringing to market.

“Sales at our open communities continue to reflect increased demand for new homes and the reduced inventory of existing homes for sale. Our robust sales in the first half of 2013 enabled us to generate total first-half revenue of $23.8 million, significantly outpacing last year’s results, while generating current backlog as of August 13th of $23.2 million on 52 pre-sold units.

“However, delays in permitting for our newer projects and the well-publicized shortage of skilled labor have resulted in what we believe are temporary production cycle delays. We are now projecting settlements of 125-130 units with a significant number of these settlements to occur in the fourth quarter of 2013. As a result, we expect to report revenue from our homebuilding operations to approximate $64 million and break-even or marginal profitability for 2013.”

Clemente added, “Returning Comstock to profitability for 2013 while positioning for additional growth and profitability in 2014 remains a top priority. We are confident in the steps we have taken to position Comstock for further growth in 2014 and look forward to opening additional communities that will build on the progress we have made this year. Recently, we started site development at two new communities: The Townes at Shady Grove Metro (36 townhouses located in Rockville, MD) and Falls Grove (19 single family homes and 110 townhomes located in Manassas, VA). We are also preparing to commence work on additional projects in Loudoun County, VA and Frederick, MD, with the goal of having seven active communities by early 2014.
