Genesis Reports 2023 Second Quarter Results

Canada NewsWire

CALGARY, AB, July 27, 2023 /CNW/ - Genesis Land Development Corp. (TSX: GDC) (the "Corporation" or "Genesis") reported its financial and operating results for the three months ("Q2") and six months ended June 30, 2023 ("YTD").

Subsequent to June 30, 2023, Genesis received Outline Plan and Land Use approval from the City of Calgary for the 157 acres it acquired in Q2 2022, in the Belvedere ASP. Final approvals required prior to commencement of site servicing activity are expected to be received this fall. More growth is coming through expansion of its home building division.

Outlook

Supported by a solid financial position, a backlog of new-home orders, and the strength of Calgary's economy, Genesis continues to add growth opportunities in both its land and housing divisions. Housing price increases in recent years, rapidly increasing interest rates, inflationary pressures, tight labour markets and continuing supply chain constraints are impacting new home orders, and home affordability. These negative factors are being offset by strong housing demand from newcomers to Alberta, the continued historic low supply of homes for sale in the tight Calgary market and the growing economy.

The Calgary Real Estate Board is forecasting an overall reduction in home sales in 2023 in Calgary, to 25,921 units, down from a record high in 2022 of 29,672 units. The Royal Bank of Canada forecasts Alberta GDP to grow by 2.4% in 2023, which is the strongest in Canada but a marked deceleration from the 5.1% growth in 2022. Immigration to both Alberta and the CMA continues to be strong into 2023 as evidenced by the 4% growth in the working age population in the CMA to the end of June 2023 as compared to June 2022. In addition to strong international immigration, people are moving to the CMA from across Canada, with the biggest net inflows coming from the two provinces with the most unaffordable housing markets: Ontario and British Columbia. However, continued mixed economic indicators and general economic uncertainty, lead Genesis to remain cautious in planning and executing its strategic and business plans.

This news release contains certain statements which constitute forward-looking statements or information ("forward-looking statements") within the meaning of applicable securities legislation, including Canadian Securities Administrators' National Instrument 51-102 - Continuous Disclosure Obligations, concerning the business, operations and financial performance and condition of Genesis. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "proposed", "scheduled", "future", "likely", "seeks", "estimates", "plans", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved".

Although Genesis believes that the anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions and expectations, the reader should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors many of which are beyond the Corporation's control, which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Genesis to differ materially from anticipated future results, performance or achievement expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, Genesis cannot give any assurance that its expectations will in fact occur and cautions that actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are based on factors or assumptions made by us with respect to, among other things, opportunities that may or may not be pursued by us; changes in the real estate industry; fluctuations in the Canadian and Alberta economy; changes in the number of lots sold and homes delivered per year; and changes in laws or regulations or the interpretation or application of those laws and regulations. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control.

Forward-looking statements in this news release include, but are not limited to, Genesis' strategy; the ability to take advantage of growth opportunities; anticipated general economic and business conditions (including prospects for the local economy); and areas of continued operational focus.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: the impact of contractual arrangements and incurred obligations on future operations and liquidity; local real estate conditions, including the development of properties in close proximity to Genesis' properties and the strength and growth of the Calgary economy; the uncertainties of real estate development and acquisition activity; fluctuations in interest and inflation rates; ability to access and raise capital on favorable terms; not realizing on the anticipated benefits from transactions or not realizing on such anticipated benefits within the expected time frame; the cyclicality of the oil and gas industry; changes in the Canadian / U.S. dollar exchange rate; labor matters; governmental regulations; general economic and financial conditions; stock market volatility; and other risks and factors described from time to time in the documents filed by Genesis with the securities regulators in Canada available at www.sedar.com, including in the Corporation's MD&A under the heading "Risks and Uncertainties" and the Corporation's annual information form under the heading "Risk Factors".

Furthermore, the forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as of the date of this news release and, except as required by applicable law, Genesis does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or to revise any of the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
