Forward-Looking Statements

 

The Company’s public communications and SEC filings may contain statements related to future, not past, events. These forward-looking statements are generally accompanied by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “future,” “goal,” “intend,” “likely,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “strategy,” “target,” “will,” “would,” or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes. These forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company’s strategy, projections and estimates concerning the timing and success of specific projects and the Company’s future production, land and lot sales, the outcome of legal proceedings, the anticipated impact of natural disasters or contagious diseases on its operations, operational and financial results, including its estimates for growth, financial condition, sales prices, prospects, capital spending and the anticipated use of the proceeds of the issuance of new securities and the completion of the Offer.

 

The major risks and uncertainties—and assumptions that are made—that affect the Company’s business and may cause actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: the effects of the ongoing novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic, which are highly uncertain, cannot be predicted and will depend upon future developments, including the severity of COVID-19 and the duration of the outbreak, the duration of existing social distancing and shelter-in-place orders, further mitigation strategies taken by applicable government authorities, the availability of a vaccine, adequate testing and treatments and the prevalence of widespread immunity to COVID-19; the effect of general economic conditions, including employment rates, housing starts, interest rate levels, availability of financing for home mortgages and strength of the U.S.; market demand for the Company’s products, which is related to the strength of the various U.S. business segments and U.S. and international economic conditions; the availability of desirable and reasonably priced land and the Company’s ability to control, purchase, hold and develop such parcels; access to adequate capital on acceptable terms; geographic concentration of the Company’s operations, particularly within California; levels of competition; the successful execution of the Company’s internal performance plans, including restructuring and cost reduction initiatives; raw material and labor prices and availability; oil and other energy prices; the effect of U.S. trade policies, including the imposition of tariffs and duties on homebuilding products and retaliatory measures taken by other countries; the effect of weather, including the re-occurrence of drought conditions in California; the risk of loss from earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, floods, droughts, windstorms, hurricanes, pest infestations and other natural disasters, and the risk of delays, reduced consumer demand, and shortages and price increases in labor or materials associated with such natural disasters; the risk of loss from acts of war, terrorism or outbreaks of contagious diseases, such as COVID-19; transportation costs; U.S. federal and state tax policies; the effect of land use, environment and other governmental laws and regulations; legal proceedings or disputes and the adequacy of reserves; risks relating to any unforeseen changes to or effects on liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, indebtedness, financial condition, losses and future prospects; changes in accounting principles; risks related to unauthorized access to the Company’s computer systems, theft of the Company’s homebuyers’ confidential information or other forms of cyber-attack; and the other factors that are described in “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, filed with the SEC on February 19, 2020, and under Part II, Item 1A, of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, filed with the SEC on April 23, 2020, as such descriptions may be updated or amended in any future reports the Company files with the SEC. These or other uncertainties may cause the Company’s actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in its forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they were made, and the Company does not undertake to update them.
