Five Point Holdings, LLC (NYSE:FPH), an owner and developer of large mixed-use, master-planned communities in California (including Valencia), reported its fourth quarter and year-end 2019 results. Emile Haddad, Chairman and CEO, said, “The end of last year marked an inflection point for our company as we had our first homesite sales in December at Valencia/Newhall. A lot has changed over the past three weeks. While we hope that the unprecedented conditions facing the country and the economy will be short-lived, we believe we are well positioned to withstand these challenges. Our balance sheet remains strong, and we have the ability to quickly adjust our land development expenditures in response to changing market conditions. We look forward to the opportunities that await us once we have weathered this storm.”
