NEW YORK -- January 31, 2013

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New
York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Hovnanian Enterprises
Inc. (“Hovnanian” or the “Company”) (NYSE: HOV) for potential breaches of
fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct in seeking shareholders’
approval for an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation.

Specifically, in the Proxy Statement filed by the Company with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on January 28, 2013, the Board of Directors recommends
that Hovnanian’s shareholders vote to approve an amendment to the Company’s
Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of
Class A Common Stock from 200,000,000 shares to 400,000,000 shares. The proxy
also recommends that shareholders vote to increase the number of authorized
shares of Class B Common Stock from 30,000,000 shares to 60,000,000 shares,
and recommends that shareholders vote to approve an advisory vote on executive
compensation. The issuance of the additional shares could have a substantial
dilutive effect on the shares of Hovnanian common stock.
