MESSAGE FROM MANAGEMENT TEAM


At MDC, we do not believe in mediocrity. Our experience, leadership and disciplined approach to business have given us the competitive edge needed to succeed in an ever evolving industry. These characteristics have helped to sustain us through turbulent economic periods and create value for our shareholders.

Our business judgment comes not only from building homes for more than 200,000 families over more than four decades, but also from the hands-on experience our two senior leaders have gained during their combined 80+ years at MDC.

Given the strength of our balance sheet and our industry expertise, we believe we are well positioned for continued success and growth.

We want to extend our appreciation to our employees, subcontractors, customers, business associates and shareowners for their continued support in our ongoing pursuit of operational excellence.

Sincerely, Larry A. Mizel Chairman and CEO
