Financial and Operating Highlights

  oTotal revenue for the second quarter of 2013 decreased 84.4 percent to
    Ps.1.1 billion (US$85.6 million) from Ps.7.1 billion (US$548.6 million)
    for the same period in 2012. Housing revenues were Ps.290.4 million
    (US$22.3 million), a decline of 93.4 percent compared to Ps.4.4 billion
    (US$337.5 million) during the second quarter of 2012.
  oDuring the quarter the Company recognized revenues of Ps.800.9 million
    (US$61.5 million) in relation to building service contracts with state and
    the federal government compared to Ps.1.6 billion (US$127.5 million)
    during the year ago period.
  oDuring the quarter, the Company effectively closed the transaction with
    IDEAL to sell Homex's interest in the penitentiaries projects for
    approximately Ps.4.5 billion generating an income of Ps.989.4 million
    which was registered as other income in the P&L.
  oThe Company recognized a charge of Ps.5.3 billion in Costs of Good Sold
    (COGS) for land and construction-in-progress inventory as per the initial
    viability analysis performed on the Company's housing projects and land
    inventory according to the recently published rules for subsidy
    application from SEDATU.
  oFor the quarter, the Company created a Ps.2.1 billion provision registered
    in Selling General and Administrative Expenses (SG&A) for uncollectable
    accounts receivable outstanding for more than 160 days from clients that
    lost their eligibility for subsidies or deteriorated their credit status,
    making collection of those receivables uncertain.
  oAs per the cancellation of currency hedges in relation to Homex's Senior
    Notes due 2019 and 2020, the Company registered a loss of Ps.1.2 billion
    in Net Comprehensive Financing Cost.
  oFor the six-months accumulated period, as of June 30, 2013, Homex
    generated a consolidated negative Free Cash Flow (FCF) of Ps.3.3 billion
    which was mainly driven by the negative free cash flow of Ps.7.5 billion
    without the penitentiaries projects mainly driven by the Company's
    six-months accumulated negative net income.

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

"The second quarter of 2013 reflects the industry's structural and policies
changes which have affected Homex' operations since year end 2012. Despite
the complexity of the challenges that we had been facing which have translated
in legal and liquidity implications affecting our operations, we continue to
feel positive about our future prospects and more importantly we continue to
work diligently to solve Homex' current situation. The housing industry in
Mexico continues to be very attractive and we trust in the Federal
government's commitment and support for a solid and active future for the
industry and for our company.

During the quarter, we have dedicated a lot of time and effort to evaluate
Homex' financial alternatives as well as to restructure and resize our
operations to reflect current conditions with the objective of reactivating
our operations to improve our financial position.

During the quarter, we also successfully closed the transaction with IDEAL to
sell Homex' interest in the penitentiaries projects. This key operation
brought resources to Homex to reduce its liabilities.

We will continue to dedicate our efforts on progressively reactivating our
housing projects in Mexico; we have made important advances during the second
quarter of 2013 which should enable us to achieve better performance during
the following months."
