Taylor Morrison Home Corporation (NYSE: TMHC) announced today financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Our results for the first quarter represent the combined results of our subsidiaries Taylor Morrison Communities, Inc. and Monarch Communities Inc. (collectively "the Company"). Net income for the quarter was $24.3 million, compared to net income of $10.3 million for the first quarter of 2012.

"We started the year in a position of strength, with a 136% increase in net income, continuing our track record of solid financial performance and adding to our trend of more than three consecutive years of profitability," said Sheryl Palmer, President and CEO. "We are pleased to demonstrate continued quarter-over-quarter improvements in key operational and financial metrics. The results we're releasing today are the manifestation of years of preparation and demonstrate the value around the Company's land strategy during the downturn. Our opportunistic land strategy continues to be conscious and calculated and the foundation of our success."

Net sales orders increased 52% to 1,681 in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 1,106 in the first quarter of last year. Net sales orders in the Company's U.S. operations increased 68%, partially offset by a 29% sales order decline in its Canadian operations. As expected, community count increased 31% to 167 from 124 in the first quarter of last year, primarily due to our acquisition of Darling Homes based in Texas. The Company's overall monthly absorption pace increased to 3.4 net sales orders per community in the first quarter of 2013 compared to 3.0 for the first quarter of 2012.

The Company's sales order backlog of homes under contract increased 45% to 3,872 homes with a sales value of $1.4 billion at March 31, 2013 compared with 2,669 homes with a sales value of $884 million as of March 31, 2012. The Company's U.S. backlog of homes under contract increased 109% to 2,506 homes with a sales value of $993 million at March 31, 2013 compared with 1,199 homes with a sales value of $398 million at March 31, 2012. The first quarter 2013 cancellation rate, representing cancelled sales orders divided by gross sales orders, was 11% in both the first quarter of 2012 and 2013.

Home closings revenue totaled $366.8 million in the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 66%, benefiting from a 63% increase in homes closed to 1,012 during the quarter. Gross profit margin on home closings in the first quarter of 2013 improved to 21.2%, compared to 17.6% in the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted gross profit margin on home closings in the first quarter 2013, excluding interest expense, improved 340 basis points to 23.4% compared to 20.0% for the first quarter 2012.

For the first quarter, the Company's mortgage and title operations reported gross profit of $2.4 million. The mortgage capture rate for the Company's U.S. operations for the quarter was 81%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $46.3 million, or 12.6% of home closing revenues for the 2013 first quarter compared to $32.4 million, or 14.7% of home closing revenues for the first quarter of 2012. Equity in income of unconsolidated entities, which represents the Company's investments in home building joint ventures, was $3.2 million in both the first quarter of 2012 and 2013.

The Company ended the first quarter of 2013 with $251.2 million of cash, including $13.2 million of restricted cash. Homebuilding inventories at the end of the 2013 first quarter totaled $1.7 billion. The Company owned and controlled approximately 45,100 lots at March 31, 2013 compared with approximately 31,000 lots at March 31, 2012.

Financing Activities

On April 12, 2013, we completed our initial public offering ("IPO") and sold 28,572,000 shares at $22.00 per share for a total of $628.5 million. Subsequent to the offering, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option of 4,285,800 shares at $22.00 per share for $94.3 million. Approximately $204.3 million of the proceeds from the IPO were used to redeem $189.6 million of the 7.75% senior notes due 2020, issued by two of our subsidiaries at a price equal to 103.875% their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The remainder of the IPO proceeds was used to purchase equity interests from the principal equity holders and pay IPO-related fees.

Concurrent with the IPO, our subsidiaries entered into a new $400 million unsecured revolving credit facility, maturing in April 2017, replacing an existing $225 million secured revolving credit facility. In addition, two of our subsidiaries issued $550 million aggregate principal amount of 5.25% senior notes due 2021, the proceeds of which will be used for general corporate purposes.
