Quoting Management: “We generated strong first quarter growth in adjusted EBITDA, as adjusted, which was up 34 percent, driven by continued VPG improvement and development margin expansion in our key North America segment,” said Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer. “Our top-line results benefitted from higher pricing and improved closing efficiency during the quarter. In addition, lower product cost and leveraging our fixed marketing and sales expenses drove another quarter of strong development margin performance. As a result, we now expect to achieve full year 2013 adjusted company development margin of 17 to 18 percent.”
