“Our businesses continue to do an outstanding job of managing through an extremely volatile period,” Bill Boor, president and chief executive officer, stated in a release. “The impressive results this quarter were achieved while managing persistent labor and supply challenges. We were also able to close on the Commodore acquisition ahead of schedule and are well into the combination of two strong organizations. We’re excited about the improvements that will come from leveraging the best of both.

“With continuing strong demand drivers and our solid operating foundation we remain focused on our long-term strategies. We have a tremendous opportunity to provide affordable homes at a faster and faster pace by investing in manufacturing improvements in our existing plants and growing our capacity through new operations and acquisitions,” Boor continued.
