Hovnanian Enterprises Reports Fiscal 2018 Results

Reported Fourth Quarter Net Income of $46 Million
Exceeded or Met Guidance
Consolidated Lots Controlled Grew 20% Year-over-Year

MATAWAN, N.J., Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: HOV), a leading national homebuilder, reported results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended October 31, 2018.

“We are pleased to report solid performance in our fourth quarter. We exceeded or met our guidance for total revenues, gross margin, SG&A expense ratio and adjusted pretax profits,” stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Given the recent consumer hesitation in purchasing homes, we remain cautious and are carefully evaluating current market conditions when underwriting new land acquisitions. Nonetheless, we continue to move forward with our goal of increasing our community count. Our total consolidated lots controlled at the end of the fourth quarter expanded 20% year over year.”

“We recognize that there has been an overall industry cooling in home sales during the quarter; a time when mortgage rates rose and stock market volatility caused hesitation among potential home buyers. However, given the overall demographic trends and the strong U.S. economy, as home buyers become adjusted to the higher mortgage rate environment, expectations will likely adjust and the housing market should resume its path of recovery,” concluded Mr. Hovnanian.

RESULTS FOR THE THREE-MONTH PERIOD AND YEAR ENDED OCTOBER 31, 2018:
