"Actual U.S. single-family starts were 471,100 in 2010, a 5.9 percent increase over 2009. This is the first time in the past five years there has been a year-over-year increase in housing starts," said Floyd Sherman, Builders FirstSource Chief Executive Officer. Commenting on the recent quarter, Mr. Sherman added, "However, it is evident that challenging conditions still persist, as actual U.S. single-family starts for the fourth quarter of 2010 were 95,600, a decrease of 8.7 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. In the South Region, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau and which encompasses our entire geographic footprint, actual single-family starts were 49,900, down 9.3 percent from the fourth quarter of 2009, and single-family units under construction were 116,800, a decrease of 8.2 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2009.  Despite this decline in construction activity, our sales of $147.1 million for the current quarter were down just 4.5 percent when compared to sales of $154.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. These sales results, even when adjusted for commodity inflation, would indicate we gained market share during the quarter. We look to continue this trend, but only where these gains are at acceptable margins."
