HomeBanc Corp., Atlanta, has revised the range of its expected third-quarter net loss (under generally accepted accounting principles) from $0.00-$0.04 per share to $0.04-$0.08 per share.Because HomeBanc is structured as a real estate investment trust, its management said REIT taxable income is also a meaningful measure of its performance. Using that measure, HomeBanc is estimating income available to holders of common stock at $0.25-$0.27 per share for the third quarter, up from the previous guidance of $0.22-$0.25. Origination volume for the quarter was $1.3 billion, down 28% from $1.8 billion for the same period in 2005. "The by-product of the industry downturn is overcapacity, margin compression, and aggressive credit practices," said Patrick S. Flood, HomeBanc Corp.'s chairman and chief executive officer. ".... As a result, we are accelerating certain expense reduction efforts to better position our company to confront the challenges of the environment in which we are operating."
