Portions of this document may constitute "forward-looking statements" as defined

assurance that actual outcomes will not be materially different. All
forward-looking statements are based upon information available to D.R. Horton

Factors that may cause the actual results to be materially different from the
future results expressed by the forward-looking statements include, but are not
limited to: potential deterioration in homebuilding industry conditions and the
current weak U.S. economy; the cyclical nature of the homebuilding industry and
changes in general economic, real estate and other conditions; constriction of
the credit markets, which could limit our ability to access capital and increase
our costs of capital; reductions in the availability of mortgage financing and
the liquidity provided by government-sponsored enterprises, the effects of
government programs, a decrease in our ability to sell mortgage loans on
attractive terms or an increase in mortgage interest rates; the risks associated
with our land and lot inventory; home warranty and construction defect claims;
supply shortages and other risks for acquiring land, building materials and
skilled labor; reductions in the availability of performance bonds; increases in
the costs of owning a home; the effects of governmental regulations and
environmental matters on our homebuilding operations; the effects of
governmental regulation on our financial services operations; our debt
obligations and our ability to comply with related debt covenants, restrictions
and limitations; competitive conditions within the homebuilding and financial
services industries; our ability to effect any future growth strategies
successfully; the impact of an inflationary or deflationary environment; our
ability to realize the full amount of our deferred income tax asset; and
information technology failures and data security breaches. Additional
information about issues that could lead to material changes in performance is
contained in D.R. Horton`s annual report on Form 10-K and our most recent
quarterly report on Form 10-Q, both of which are filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.
