Robert E. Mellor, Chairman, President and CEO, stated: v”Sales and net income for the quarter topped our record results for the same period last year. We were pleased to have achieved an increase in net income despite a slowdown in the overall housing industry. Our growth in the second quarter reflects market share gains from recent acquisitions, as mixed regional results from continuing operations largely offset one another. During the quarter, we focused on the integration of our recent acquisitions, which have served to further extend our operations. We are pleased that our growing range of construction services and our geographic diversity are helping to insulate BMHC from some of the impact of regional market variations in homebuilding activity.”
