Business Strategy The company has developed a long-term business strategy which focuses on the following elements in order to provide a range of homebuyers with quality homes while maximizing returns on invested capital over the course of a housing cycle: geographic diversification in growth markets; diversity of product offerings; differentiated process; consistent use of national brand; operational scale efficiencies; and balanced land policies. Seasonality The company’s homebuilding operating cycle generally reflects higher levels of new home order activity in the second and third fiscal quarters and increased closings in the third and fourth fiscal quarters.
