We remain committed to all of the Company’s stakeholders as we continue to safely operate our business.

We are well-positioned to successfully operate in this uncertain environment with our experienced team, industry-leading market share, broad geographic footprint and diverse product offerings. We expect to maintain our flexible operational and financial position by generating strong cash flows from our homebuilding operations, limiting land acquisition and land development spending and adjusting our product offerings, incentives, home pricing, sales pace and inventory levels to optimize the return on our inventory investments in each of our communities based on local housing market conditions.
