“UCP’s success during the past quarter has been the result of our team’s experience, our opportunistic land purchases during the housing downturn, and our ability to build differentiated communities and homes primarily in the robust markets of Northern California and Washington State.” stated Dustin Bogue President and Chief Executive Officer of UCP.
Mr. Bogue continued, “Despite the recent rise in interest rates, we continue to see strong traffic and new home orders in our communities due to favorable community locations and expanding demand. As we move ahead, we will continue to acquire land, open new communities, and leverage our cost base through higher selling prices.”
Second quarter 2013 operating results
UCP’s net loss decreased to $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $2.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, primarily driven by an increase in revenue that was partly offset by a lower gross margin and higher SG&A, and included approximately $0.9 million of non-recurring IPO related costs.
