 For the 2012 fourth quarter, the Company reported net income of $5.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3.0 million, or $0.16 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income for the 2012 fourth quarter consisted primarily of adjusted pre-tax income from operations of $7.0 million, offset by $1.6 million of asset impairments and $0.4 million of tax expense. The prior year fourth quarter loss consisted primarily of adjusted pre-tax income from operations of $1.4 million, offset by $4.5 million of asset impairments. The Company reported net income of $13.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, or $0.67 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $33.9 million, or $1.81 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2011.

New contracts for 2012's fourth quarter were 673 - increasing 33% from 2011's fourth quarter of 505. For 2012, new contracts increased 27% from 2,381 in 2011 to 3,020 in 2012. M/I Homes had 131 active communities at December 31, 2012 compared to 122 a year ago. The Company's cancellation rate was 21% in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 23% in 2011's fourth quarter and for 2012 it was 17%. Homes delivered in 2012's fourth quarter were 887 compared to 667 in 2011's fourth quarter. Homes delivered for the twelve months





ended December 31, 2012 increased 21% to 2,765 compared to 2011's deliveries of 2,278. Backlog of homes at December 31, 2012 had a sales value of $283 million, with backlog units of 965 and an average sales price of $293,000. At December 31, 2011, backlog sales value was $181 million, with backlog units of 676 and an average sales price of $267,000.

Robert H. Schottenstein, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, “We are very pleased with our fourth quarter and full year results highlighted by a $47 million bottom-line improvement over last year and a return to full year profitability. Several factors contributed to the year-over-year improvement in our profitability, including a 27% increase in new contracts, a 21% increase in homes delivered, and a 200 basis point increase in adjusted gross margins, with 2012 margins reaching 19.5%. This material improvement in our margins was the result of continued solid performance of our newer communities and the strategic shift in our geographic footprint, which resulted in more closings in our better performing markets as well as pricing power in select locations and submarkets. We ended the year with nearly 300 units more in backlog than a year ago, representing our highest year-end backlog, both in units and dollar value since 2006.”
 
Mr. Schottenstein continued, “Our financial condition remains strong. We ended the year with $154 million in cash, a 39% net debt to net capital ratio, and no outstanding borrowings under our $140 million credit facility. Looking ahead, with macro housing conditions continuing to show noticeable signs of improvement, we are excited about our future. From an operating standpoint, we will stay focused on improving our profitability, growing our aggregate market share in our existing markets, expanding our community count and continuing the successful expansion of our footprint into Texas, with the opening of our first communities in Austin later this year. We ended 2012 with momentum and believe we are very well positioned to build upon that momentum as we look to 2013 and beyond.”

Adjusted operating gross margin, adjusted operating gross margin percentage, adjusted pre-tax income (loss) from operations and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. Management finds these measures to be useful in evaluating the Company's performance because they disclose the financial results generated from homes the Company actually delivered during the period, as the asset impairments and certain other write-offs relate, in part, to inventory that was not delivered during the period. They also assist the Company's management in making strategic decisions regarding the Company's future operations. The Company believes investors will also find these measures to be important and useful because they disclose financial  measures that can be compared to a prior period without regard to the variability of asset impairments and certain other write-offs and unusual charges. In addition, to the extent that the Company's competitors provide similar information, disclosure of these measures helps readers of the Company's financial statements compare the Company's financial results to the results of its competitors with regard to the homes they deliver in the same period. Because these measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of the Company's competitors due to potential differences in methods of calculation and charges being excluded.  Due to the significance of the GAAP components excluded, such measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to operating performance measures prescribed by GAAP.  Adjusted EBITDA is also presented in accordance with the terms of our revolving credit facility.
