    • This doesn't look too good. The high number of cancellations and 50% drop in pre-sales indicates a severe cooling in demand.

      I'm not sure what this statement means. Why would a higher volume of deliveries lead to more sales cancellations??

      "Given the high volume of deliveries in the second half of 2012, Gafisa brand registered a higher volume of
      sales cancellations in this quarter. Throughout the year, we will work to resell these units."

      "First-quarter 2013 consolidated pre-sales totaled R$205 million, a 50% decline compared to 1Q12. Sales from launches represented 35% of the total, while sales from inventory comprised the remaining 65%."

      "Cash generation was slightly negative, mainly impacted by lower launch volume due to seasonality and expenditures linked to landbank acquisition.”
