Toll Brothers Reports FY 2011 3rd Qtr and 9 Month Results02:00 EDT Wednesday, August 24, 2011HORSHAM, Pa., Aug. 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Toll Brothers, Inc. (NYSE:TOL) (www.tollbrothers.com), the nation's leading builder of luxury homes, today announced results for earnings, revenues, contracts, and backlog for its third quarter ended July 31, 2011. The Company reported FY 2011 third-quarter net income of $42.1 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to FY 2010's third-quarter net income of $27.3 million, or $0.16 per share. FY 2011's third quarter included a net tax benefit of $38.2 million, due to the reversal of previously accrued state and federal taxes, compared to a $26.5 million net tax benefit in FY 2010's third quarter. FY 2011's third-quarter pretax income was $3.9 million, compared to FY 2010's third-quarter pretax income of $0.8 million. Excluding write-downs and debt retirement charges of $16.8 million and $3.4 million, respectively, FY 2011's third-quarter pretax income was $24.1 million. Excluding write-downs and debt retirement charges of $12.5 million and $0.7 million, respectively, FY 2010's third-quarter pretax income was $14.0 million. FY 2011's third-quarter revenues and home building deliveries of $394.3 million and 693 units decreased 13% in dollars and 14% in units, compared to FY 2010's third-quarter results. FY 2011's third-quarter net signed contracts of $406.7 million and 713 units rose 2% in both dollars and units, compared to FY 2010's third-quarter net signed contracts. The average price of third-quarter net signed contracts was $570,000, approximately the same as in FY 2010's third quarter. On a per-community basis, FY 2011's third-quarter net signed contracts of 3.51 units per community were 5% lower than FY 2010's third-quarter total, 1% lower than FY 2009's third-quarter total, and 30% greater than FY 2008's third-quarter total; however, they were still well below the Company's historical third-quarter average, dating back to 1990, of 5.98 units per community. The Company's contract cancellation rate (current-quarter cancellations divided by current-quarter gross signed contracts) was 7.4% in the third quarter of FY 2011, compared to 6.2% in FY 2010's third quarter: These rates are consistent with the Company's pre-downturn historical averages. As a percentage of beginning-quarter backlog, the cancellation rate was 3.2%. FY 2011's third-quarter-end backlog of $1.02 billion, or 1,780 units, increased 8% in dollars and 9% in units, compared to FY 2010's third-quarter-end backlog. For FY 2011's nine-month period, the Company reported net income of $24.8 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to FY 2010's nine-month period net loss of $53.9 million, or $0.33 per share. FY 2011's nine-month period included pretax write-downs, joint venture impairments, and charges related to early retirement of debt totaling $77.9 million, compared to $88.9 million in FY 2010's comparable period. FY 2011's nine-month period included a net tax benefit of $69.4 million, compared to a $53.9 million net tax benefit in FY 2010's nine-month period. FY 2011's nine-month pretax loss was $44.6 million, compared to FY 2010's nine-month pretax loss of $107.7 million. Excluding write-downs, joint venture impairments, and debt retirement charges, FY 2011's nine-month pretax income was $33.2 million, compared to FY 2010's nine-month pretax loss, excluding write-downs and debt retirement charges, of $19.5 million. For FY 2011's first nine months, home building revenues of $1.05 billion and 1,854 units decreased 4% in dollars and 5% in units, compared to FY 2010. FY 2011 nine-month net signed contracts of $1.21 billion and 2,140 units increased 5% in both dollars and units, compared to the same period in FY 2010. Toll Brothers ended FY 2011's third quarter with 207 selling communities, compared to 190 at FY 2010's third-quarter end. The Company now expects to end FY 2011 with between 210 and 220 selling communities. The Company ended FY 2011's third quarter with approximately 36,200 lots owned and optioned, compared to approximately 35,900 at the previous quarter-end and 35,800 one year ago. Toll Brothers ended FY 2011's third quarter with a net-debt-to-capital ratio(1) of 13.9%, compared to 11.5% at FY 2010's third-quarter end. The Company ended FY 2011's third quarter with $1.18 billion of cash and marketable securities, compared to $1.25 billion at FY 2011's second-quarter end and $1.64 billion at FY 2010's third-quarter end. The Company used $48.7 million of cash in the third quarter to retire $45.1 million of its Senior Notes due November 2012, and spent approximately $75 million on land purchases. At FY 2011's third-quarter end, the Company also had $777.5 million available under its $885 million 12-bank credit facility, which matures in October 2014. Douglas C. Yearley, Jr., Toll Brothers' chief executive officer, stated: "It is too soon to assess the ramifications of the financial volatility of the past few weeks on the housing market. While late summer is generally not the best time to sell homes, in the short run, the stock market gyrations, the budget impasse, and the U.S. Government bond rating downgrade are certainly not helping consumer confidence. However, we believe that historic low interest rates and the growing imbalance between housing production and demographics-driven demand bode well for the industry sooner or later: the key question, of course, is when. "We are pleased to be making some progress in a tough market. This was our fifth consecutive quarter of pre-write-down, pre-tax profits. Additionally, Gibraltar Capital and Asset Management LLC, our subsidiary focused on acquiring and managing portfolios of distressed real estate loans and properties, contributed $4.0 million of profits. "This past quarter's results indicated some continued stabilization in the upscale housing market, albeit at a level dramatically below historical levels. Our strong financial position and the value of our brand distinguish us in the luxury market as nervous buyers are exhibiting a flight to quality and dependability. Our buyers generally have very strong financial profiles, which have enabled them to secure mortgage financing. Our large presence in the metro-DC-to-Boston corridor and our high-rise business in the metro New York City region give us a strong position in some of the more promising U.S. markets. "We closed on about $75 million of land this quarter, nearly half of which was for a great site at 3rd Avenue and 22nd Street in the Gramercy Park area of Manhattan. We are seeing some attractive opportunities; however, the flow of deals is not occurring at the pace we would have expected this long into a down cycle."  Martin P. Connor, Toll Brothers' chief financial officer, stated: "Our third quarter gross margin, before interest and write-downs, as a percent of revenue showed slight improvement compared to the prior quarter and modest improvement compared to last year's third quarter. This reflects the benefits of our centralized purchasing initiatives and reductions in incentives. Absolute dollars expended on SG&A in the third quarter were lower than in the prior quarter and also lower than in last year's third quarter due to continuing benefits of cost reduction initiatives and some insurance reversals and recoveries. "Subject to the caveats in our Statement on Forward-Looking Information included in this release, we offer the following limited guidance:  "We currently estimate that we will deliver between 2,475 and 2,675 homes in FY 2011, which reflects our projected range of 620 to 820 home deliveries in FY 2011's fourth quarter at an average price of between $555,000 and $570,000 per home. We will give preliminary guidance for FY 2012 when we announce fourth quarter results in December 2011. Robert I. Toll, executive chairman, stated: "Our sales are gaining some traction but consumer confidence is still weak and the housing sector remains in a fragile state. The nation's economy continues to suffer from the lack of jobs in housing construction and the related manufacturing and service sectors that a healthy new home market would typically generate. Housing construction is a primary job creator for those Americans suffering among the highest levels of unemployment in the current recession. "We are hopeful, based on some recent comments out of Washington, that the Administration and Congress now recognize that housing must be healed to lift the nation out of this recession. This sentiment was echoed recently by Warren Buffet. We hope that our leaders will proceed cautiously with housing as they review options to address the deficit by ensuring that liquidity remains available to the sector and that the foundations of our system that support homeownership are not dismantled." The financial highlights for the third-quarter and nine-months ended July 31, 2011 (unaudited):  FY 2011's third-quarter net income was $42.1 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to FY 2010's third-quarter net income of $27.3 million, or $0.16 per share.
