Homex Reports 1Q13 Earnings Results

CULIACAN, Mexico, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Desarrolladora Homex, S.A.B. de C.V. ("Homex" or "the Company") [NYSE: HXM, BMV: HOMEX] today announced financial results for the First Quarter ended March 31, 2013[1].

Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2013 decreased 46.2 percent to Ps.3.3 billion (US$142.6 million) from Ps.6.2 billion (US$216.2 million) for the same period in 2012.  Housing revenues were Ps.2.2 billion (US$179 million), a decline of 39.4 percent compared to Ps.3.6 billion (US$294 million) during the first quarter of 2012 mainly driven by the continued slow collection experienced during the recent quarter in the Company's Mexico Division. Due to the low level of collections during the quarter, Homex's ability to complete homes under construction was also affected, impacting its capacity to restore its pipeline of new homes to be collected.
  • In accordance with IFRS since 4Q12, the Company decided not to consolidate results of its penitentiary project located in Chiapas accordingly the Company is only recognizing revenues from the Morelos penitentiary project.  For the quarter, the Company registered revenues of Ps.336.4 million from the penitentiary project located at Morelos. 
  • As recently announced, the Company has signed an agreement with Grupo Financiero Inbursa and Ideal for the sale of its interest in the Federal Penitentiaries located at Morelos and Chiapas. After the completion of this transaction, the Company will no longer consolidate the Federal Penitentiary projects in its financial statements as effectively, both, assets and liabilities, associated to the projects will be transferred to the acquiring party.  No additional capital investment from Homex is expected for the completion of the projects.
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) during the quarter were Ps.599.7 million (US$48.5 million), a 51.7 percent decrease from the Ps.1.2 billion (US$100.4 million) during the same period in 2012. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the recent quarter was 18.0 percent compared to 20.1 percent during the same period of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA margin for housing was 20.2 percent during the first quarter of 2013 compared to 24.2 percent during the same period of 2012.
  • As of March 31, 2013, and as a result of the accumulative FX gain of the Peso against the US dollar, the Company's changes in financial position (which the Company has historically presented as Free Cash Flow), reflect the booking of non-cash items. As of March 31, 2013 and on a consolidated basis, Homex generated negative FCF of Ps.3.2 billion which was driven by the increase in the construction in progress from Mexico's housing division and to a lesser extent  from the recognition of the construction in progress (as AR) from the penitentiary project of Morelos.  Homex FCF without the Federal Penitentiary and adjusted for FX was negative at Ps.3.0 billion.

Commenting on first quarter results, Gerardo de Nicolas, Chief Executive Officer of Homex, said:

"As we anticipated and shared with you in February during our fourth quarter and full year 2012 earnings call, the first quarter of the year was expected to be very challenging, and of course, this has been reflected in our reported first quarter results and liquidity position. Nonetheless, we feel positive in relation to our performance during 2013, as we believe our financial position will show improvement through the resources that we will obtain during the following months as a result of the sale of the penitentiaries that we just announced last Friday. From a total of Ps.4.0 billion, Ps.2.0 billion are intended to be invested in working capital to complete homes under construction, thus enabling us to generate operating cash flow.  We will also use Ps.2.0 billion to reduce our indebtness level.

Moreover, we are also demonstrating the effectiveness of our strategy to diversify our operations into other attractive segments, such as infrastructure in Mexico, a division that we will continue to explore and expand in the short term future.

At the same time, we will continue to work diligently with authorities, financial institutions and most importantly, inside the company to successfully navigate the challenges during this period. We remain confident in the prospects of the Mexican housing industry, as the National Housing Plan, which is a six-year plan, denotes the importance of housing in the country and the large number of Mexican families that continue to drive the demand for housing and infrastructure. In the short term, the environment will continue to be challenging, nonetheless we trust in our experience, quality product offering and our management team to accelerate our operations throughout the year in our Mexico Division, taking advantage of a stronger financial position as a result of the monetization of the prisons and the resources that we will have available to us.  We believe that we will be the first company with the ability to offer new homes as per the dramatic reduction of new homes offered in the country."
