KB Home Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended August 31, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fourth Quarter 2014

KB Home announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended August 31, 2014. Total revenues of $589.2 million increased 7% from $549.0 million in the third quarter of 2013, driven by growth in the company's housing revenues attributable to higher average selling prices. Net income for the quarter totaled $28.4 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to $27.3 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013. Operating income was $33,910,000 against $35,963,000 a year ago. Total pretax income was $28,661,000 against $26,578,000 a year ago. For the nine months, revenues of $1.60 billion were up 9% from $1.48 billion in the year-earlier period. Net income of $65.5 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, increased significantly from $11.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the nine months ended August 31, 2013. Operating income was $85,921,000 against $45,108,000 a year ago. Total pretax income was $66,348,000 against $10,047,000 a year ago. The company credited the results to a new focus on higher-priced homes in areas with tight supply and higher incomes, and it said that approach should continue to pay dividends. The company anticipates a strong fourth quarter in terms of revenue and income generation as it continues to execute on its strategic initiatives to accelerate profitable growth.
