In the third quarter the value of our net sales orders increased by 25%, our home sales revenue increased by 37%, and the value of our sales order backlog increased by 15%.

“This quarter we made significant progress toward our goal of producing sustainable positive cash flow from operations by generating $357.4 million of cash. For the nine months ended June, we generated $188.6 million of cash flow from operations, an improvement of $762.3 million from the same period in the prior year.

“Solid performance in our three core brands is enabling us to capitalize on market opportunities and continue to expand our industry-leading market share. We are well-positioned to finish our fiscal year strong and have an even stronger fiscal 2016 with 12,761 homes in backlog, a robust community count, finished lot supply and inventory of homes available for sale and our diversified D.R. Horton, Emerald Homes and Express Homes product offerings. We remain intently focused on growing our revenues and profits at a double-digit pace, while generating improved returns and continued positive cash flows.”
