Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following tables set forth a reconciliation between our home closings gross margin and our adjusted home closings gross margin, our net income and adjusted net income, our net income and adjusted EBITDA, and our income from continuing operations before income taxes and adjusted earnings before income taxes. Adjusted home closings gross margin is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated based on home closings gross margin, excluding impairments and capitalized interest amortization. Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated based on net income from continuing operations, excluding various charges associated with the early extinguishment of debt. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial metric that measures performance by adjusting net income from continuing operations to exclude interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation expenses, and expenses related to the early extinguishment of debt. Adjusted earnings before income taxes is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated based on income from continuing operations before income taxes, excluding various charges associated with the early extinguishment of debt. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate our performance on a consolidated basis as well as the performance of our regions. In the future we may include additional adjustments in the above described non-GAAP financial measures, to the extent we deem them appropriate and useful to management and investors.

We believe adjusted home closings gross margin is useful to investors because it allows investors to evaluate the performance of our homebuilding operations without the often varying effects of interest costs capitalized. We believe adjusted net income and adjusted earnings before income taxes are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate our performance without the effects of various items we do not believe are characteristic of our ongoing operations or performance. We believe adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors regarding our results of operations for similar reasons and also because it assists both investors and management in analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. Adjusted EBITDA provides an indicator of general economic performance that is not affected by fluctuations in interest rates or effective tax rates, levels of depreciation or amortization, or non-recurring items.

These measures are considered non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures as a measure of our operating performance. Although other companies in the homebuilding industry report similar information, the methods used may differ. We urge investors to understand the methods used by other companies in the homebuilding industry to calculate net income and gross margins and any adjustments to such amounts before comparing our measures to those of such other companies.
