Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, "Our homebuilding and financial services operations delivered a great quarter, highlighted by pre-tax income of $201.9 million and a pre-tax income margin of 11.6%. The dollar value of our homes sold, closed and in backlog all increased by double-digit percentages. Our net sales orders in the March quarter were up 57% sequentially from the December quarter and up 9% from the March quarter last year. Our average sales price increased 10% to $278,900, reflecting continued pricing power in many of our markets.

“Housing market conditions remain favorable, and as expected, the pace and strength of the improvement varies significantly across our local operating markets. Our broad geographic footprint, diversified product offerings, solid balance sheet and robust finished lot supply put us in a strong position to capture demand and increase revenues and profitability in the second half of our fiscal year."

The Company will host a conference call today (Thursday, April 24th) at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time. The dial-in number is 877-407-8033, and the call will also be webcast from the Company's website at investor.drhorton.com.
