Brookfield Residential Properties Inc. today announced financial results based on U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights

"Our performance remained very strong in the third quarter, building on the excellent results achieved throughout the year and positioning us well as we move into our key fourth quarter period. Given the nature and operating cycle of our business, our fourth quarter typically accounts for the highest proportion of the year's income before income taxes. Based on current backlog, we expect fourth quarter 2012 results will be similar to the results achieved in the fourth quarter of 2011," commented Alan Norris, President and CEO of Brookfield Residential.

Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $15 million or $0.15 per share, compared to $19 million or $0.19 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2011. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net income increased significantly to $37 million or $0.37 per share, from a loss of $19 million or $(0.19) per share during the first nine months of 2011. The net loss in the prior-year period was largely the result of a one-time valuation allowance taken against the Company's U.S. deferred tax assets on the completion of the merger of Brookfield Office Properties' residential division and Brookfield Homes Corporation on March 31, 2011.

The following table breaks out normalized and non-recurring items as a result of the merger that impacted revenue and income before income taxes. The first three quarters of 2011 included $58 million of income before income taxes from a non-recurring change in business practice and the first quarter of 2012 included $9 million of interest on the transaction debt that was not included in the comparable period in 2011. Taking these items into account, income before income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, improved $13 million and $50 million on a comparable basis over the same periods in 2011.

"We also remain very optimistic about longer-term growth prospects," added Mr. Norris. "According to the Conference Board of Canada's most recent forecast, Metropolitan Outlook, Alberta, Edmonton and Calgary will lead the country in growth over the next four years. As the residential leader in each of these markets, Brookfield Residential is well positioned to capitalize on this growth going forward. Analysts are also providing a more positive view of the US housing markets with housing inventories now reaching low levels and prices stabilizing. We have significant land holdings in key US markets and as house prices increase, we expect to see a substantial positive impact on underlying land values. Overall, the short and long-term prospects for our business remain excellent," concluded Mr. Norris.

Property Transaction Highlights

During the third quarter, the Company received Area Structure Plan approval for 1,400 acres on the North Stoney lands in Calgary. This now enables the Company to proceed to final Land Use and subdivision approvals with a view to commencing development in 2015. Brookfield Residential already owns 400 acres adjacent to this property and the combined parcels will support development of over 13,000 lots.

The Company also acquired a key strategic asset of 370 acres located within one of the last large land assemblies in northwest Calgary. This popular quadrant previously captured over 25% of the Calgary market until land constraints shrunk its market share. Entitlements are estimated to take up to four years and development is set to commence in 2016.

Three Months Ended September 30, 2012

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, land revenue totaled $62 million, compared to $116 million during the same period in 2011. Approximately $43 million of the land revenue from 2011 was due to the non-recurring change in business practice for lot sales in Alberta. Taking this into account, normalized land revenue decreased by $11 million over the same period of 2011. Canadian single family lot closings accounted for $8 million of this decrease and Canadian multi-family, industrial and commercial parcel sales accounted for the remaining $3 million. While, selling prices remained relatively constant year-over-year, there was a marginal decrease of 27 lots and 7 acres in the current-year period, reflecting the timing of closings.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, housing revenue increased to $183 million from $112 million during the same period of 2011. This reflects a 55% increase in home closings and a 5% increase in the average home selling price. Sales activity continued to be strong in the third quarter, particularly in Canada, California and the Washington, D.C. Area, with an 19% year-over-year increase in overall net new home orders.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, land revenue totaled $215 million, compared to $359 million during the same period in 2011. Approximately $153 million of the land revenue from 2011 was due to the change in business practice referred to above. Excluding non-recurring revenue, normalized land revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased by $9 million or 4% over the same period of 2011. The increase in normalized land revenue was mainly driven by the sale of multi-family and commercial parcels Canada. Additional lot closings, particularly in the Canadian and the Central and Eastern U.S. operating segments, also contributed to the increase in normalized revenue.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, housing revenue increased by $125 million compared to the same period in 2011. This improvement reflects a 41% increase in home closings compared to the same period in 2011. At September 30, 2012, the backlog of units increased by approximately 35% to 1,095 homes from 813 homes at September 30, 2011. This increase reflects stronger sales demand.

Outlook

"Based on our current visibility and backlog for the fourth quarter, we are predicting that we will meet or surpass our guidance targets outlined for 2012," said Alan Norris, President & CEO of Brookfield Residential. "Our fourth quarter income before tax this year should be similar to the income before tax in the fourth quarter of 2011. This would put income before tax for the fiscal year 2012 well ahead of the recurring income before tax of $80 million in 2011."
