Behind the Numbers:

M/I turned a profit in its second quarter, essentially canceling out its first quarter loss and bringing the company to near break-even for the first half of 2012. More encouraging was a 30% jump in new orders, close to the order gains other public builders are reporting for the second quarter. M/I also pointed out that the quarter was its 12th consecutive quarter of increased earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. However, the company’s cash balance has dropped by a half in the last year to a relatively low balance of nearly $57 million.
