Toll Brothers Reports FY 2012 2nd Qtr and 6 Month Results02:00 EDT Wednesday, May 23, 2012HORSHAM, Pa., May 23, 2012 (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 second quarter and first six months ended April 30, 2012. The Company reported FY 2012 second-quarter net income of $16.9 million, or $0.10 per share, compared to a FY 2011 second-quarter net loss of $20.8 million, or $0.12 per share. FY 2012's second quarter included a net tax benefit of $1.2 million, compared to a net tax benefit of $10.7 million in FY 2011's second quarter. FY 2012's second-quarter results included $2.0 million of pre-tax inventory write-downs and a $1.6 million recovery of prior joint venture impairments, compared to FY 2011's second quarter pre-tax write-downs and joint venture impairments totaling $32.5 million. Excluding write-downs and joint venture impairments and recoveries, FY 2012's second-quarter pre-tax income was $16.1 million, compared to pre-tax income of $1.0 million in FY 2011's second quarter. FY 2012's second-quarter revenues and home building deliveries of $373.7 million and 671 units rose 17% in dollars and 14% in units, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter revenues of $319.7 million and 591 units. FY 2012's second-quarter net signed contracts of $754.7 million and 1,290 units rose 51% in dollars and 47% in units, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter net signed contracts of $500.9 million and 879 units. The average price of FY 2012's second-quarter net signed contracts was $585,000. On a per-community basis, FY 2012's second-quarter net signed contracts of 5.61 units per community were the highest for any second quarter since FY 2006. FY 2012's second-quarter-end backlog of $1.50 billion, or 2,403 units, increased 49% in dollars and 37% in units, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter-end backlog of $1.01 billion and 1,760 units. The average price of units in FY 2012's second-quarter-end backlog was $624,000: The number was outsized due to 20 condo units in backlog averaging $3.8 million from the Touraine, which is under construction on Manhattan's Upper East Side. For FY 2012's six-month period, the Company reported net income of $14.1 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to FY 2011's six-month period net loss of $17.4 million, or $0.10 per share. FY 2012's six-month period included $10.1 million of pre-tax inventory write-downs and a $1.6 million recovery of prior joint venture impairments, compared to $57.6 million of inventory write-downs and joint venture impairments in FY 2011's comparable period. FY 2012's six-month period included a net tax benefit of $4.8 million, compared to a net tax benefit of $31.2 million in FY 2011's six-month period. Excluding write-downs and joint venture recoveries, FY 2012's six-month pre-tax income was $17.8 million, compared to FY 2011's six-month pre-tax income, excluding write-downs and impairments, of $9.1 million. For FY 2012's first six months, home building revenues of $695.6 million and 1,235 units increased 6% in both dollars and units, compared to FY 2011's same-period results of $653.8 million and 1,161 units. FY 2012 six-month net signed contracts of $1.2 billion and 1,942 units increased 48% in dollars and 36% in units, compared to FY 2011's same-period results of $808.1 million and 1,427 units. Toll Brothers ended FY 2012's second quarter with 230 selling communities, compared to 203 at FY 2011's second-quarter end. The Company now expects to end FY 2012 with between 230 and 245 selling communities, a slight decrease from its previous range of guidance: This is attributable to the faster sell-out of certain communities than previously projected due to stronger demand. The Company ended FY 2012's second quarter with approximately 39,500 lots owned and optioned, compared to 39,700 in the previous quarter and 35,900 one year ago. Toll Brothers ended FY 2012's second quarter with a net-debt-to-capital ratio(1) of 26.9%, compared to 13.6% at FY 2011's second-quarter end. The Company ended FY 2012's second quarter with $927 million of cash and marketable securities, compared to $719 million at FY 2012's first-quarter end and $1.25 billion at FY 2011's second-quarter end. The increase in cash between FY 2012's first and second quarters reflected the Company's issuance of $300 million of senior notes due in FY 2022, offset, in part, by the Company's use of $124 million for the purchase of land. At FY 2012's second-quarter end, the Company had $819 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 appears that the housing market has moved into a new and stronger phase of recovery as we have experienced broad-based improvement across most of our regions over the past six months. The spring selling season has been the most robust and sustained since the downturn began. Even now, for the first three weeks of May, our non-binding reservation deposits, a leading indicator of future contracts, are running 39% ahead on a gross basis, and 23% ahead on a per-community basis, compared to last year's same May period. "We believe we are benefiting from the release of five years of pent-up demand and reduced competition in our luxury niche. We believe our brand name, our well-located communities, and our demonstrated reliability during the downturn are enabling us to attract more buyers and grow at a faster pace than the housing market in general. "Based on the experience of the past several years, we still believe buyer confidence, although improved, is fragile. Certainly, a better employment picture, encouraging housing data, more stories of multiple bidders competing for homes and a generally positive economic tone are helping. While domestic and global "headline risk" remains a concern in potentially undermining buyer confidence, with mortgage rates at historic lows and inventory supplies dropping in many markets, we are feeling better than we have at any time in the past five years." Martin P. Connor, Toll Brothers' chief financial officer, stated: "Higher sales paces coupled with cost-saving and other initiatives undertaken during the downturn, are starting to translate into positive financial results. Impairments in the first six months of FY 2012 have moderated and our SG&A as a percentage of revenues is trending positively. Gross margins were steady this quarter, compared to the previous quarter, as the dampening impact of purchase accounting on our Seattle deliveries was offset by higher-margin deliveries from our new urban high-rise project, 1450 Washington, in Hoboken, New Jersey. We also generated $5.2 million of pre-tax income from investments in various distressed asset portfolios by our Gibraltar Capital and Asset Management subsidiary. "Our strong balance sheet and access to capital continue to give us advantages over the smaller private builders with whom we compete in the luxury sector. This quarter we raised $300 million of ten-year senior debt at 5.875%, which we will put to work to support future growth. "Subject to the caveats in our Statement on Forward-Looking Information included in this release, we offer the following limited guidance: "We ended FY 2012's second quarter with a backlog of 2,403 homes and currently estimate that we will deliver between 2,700 and 3,200 homes in FY 2012. We believe the average delivered price for the next two quarters will be between $560,000 and $580,000 per home, and we expect to deliver approximately 10% more homes in FY 2012's fourth quarter than in FY 2012's third quarter." Robert I. Toll, executive chairman, stated: "In some locations, it is no longer a buyer's market; in a few locations it's even a seller's market. We would like to say ‛We're back', but we need a little more confirmation: Nonetheless, it sure feels good, compared to the desert we've just crossed." The financial highlights for the second quarter and six months ended April 30, 2012 (unaudited): FY 2012's second-quarter net income was $16.9 million, or $0.10 per share, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter net loss of $20.8 million, or $0.12 per share. FY 2012's second-quarter net income included $2.0 million of pre-tax inventory write-downs and a $1.6 million recovery of prior joint venture impairments. In FY 2011, second-quarter pre-tax inventory write-downs and joint venture impairments totaled $32.5 million including $19.6 million of joint venture impairments. FY 2012's second-quarter pre-tax income was $15.6 million, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter pre-tax loss of $31.5 million. Excluding write-downs and joint venture impairments and recoveries, FY 2012's second-quarter pre-tax income was $16.1 million, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter pre-tax income of $1.0 million. FY 2012's six-month net income was $14.1 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to FY 2011's six-month net loss of $17.4 million, or $0.10 per share. FY 2012's six-month net income included $10.1 million of pre-tax inventory write-downs and a $1.6 million recovery of prior joint venture impairments: $9.0 million of the inventory write-downs was attributable to operating communities, $0.9 million to land owned for future communities, and $0.2 million to land controlled for future communities. In FY 2011, six-month pre-tax write-downs totaled $57.6 million including $39.6 million in joint venture impairments. FY 2012's six-month pre-tax income was $9.2 million, compared to FY 2011's six-month pre-tax loss of $48.5 million. Excluding write-downs and joint venture recoveries, FY 2012's six-month pre-tax income was $17.8 million, compared to pre-tax income of $9.1 million for FY 2011's six-month period, excluding write-downs and joint venture impairments. The Company recorded a FY 2012 second-quarter tax benefit of $1.2 million and a six-month tax benefit of $4.8 million, compared to a $10.7 million tax benefit in FY 2011's second quarter and a $31.2 million tax benefit in FY 2011's six-month period. FY 2012's second-quarter total revenues of $373.7 million and 671 units increased 17% in dollars and 14% in units from FY 2011's second-quarter total revenues of $319.7 million and 591 units. FY 2012's second-quarter gross margin, excluding interest and write-downs, improved to 23.2% from 23.0% in FY 2011's second quarter. Interest included in cost of sales decreased to 4.7% of revenues in FY 2012's second quarter from 5.4% of revenues in FY 2011's second quarter, as delivering inventory was held for shorter periods. FY 2012's six-month total revenues of $695.6 million and 1,235 units rose 6% in both dollars and units, compared to FY 2011's same period totals of $653.8 million and 1,161 units. The Company signed gross contracts of $773.0 million and 1,322 units in FY 2012's second quarter, an increase of 48% in dollars and 44% in units, compared to $521.1 million and 915 gross contracts signed in FY 2011's second quarter. The Company signed 2,017 gross contracts totaling $1.24 billion in FY 2012's first six months, an increase of 35% and 47%, respectively, in units and dollars, compared to the 1,496 gross contracts totaling $847.0 million signed in FY 2011's six-month period. The average price per unit of gross contracts signed in FY 2012's second quarter was approximately $585,000, compared to approximately $677,000 in FY 2012's first quarter and $570,000 in FY 2011's second quarter. The Company's FY 2012 second-quarter net contracts of $754.7 million and 1,290 units rose by 51% and 47%, respectively, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter net contracts of $500.9 million and 879 units. On a per-community basis, FY 2012's second-quarter net signed contracts were 5.61 units per community, compared to second quarter totals of 4.35 in FY 2011, 4.32 units in FY 2010 and 2.33 units in FY 2009. FY 2012's second quarter total was the highest for any second quarter since FY 2006: However, it was still approximately 19% below the Company's 10-year historical second-quarter average per community of 6.92 units. The Company's FY 2012 six-month net contracts of $1.20 billion and 1,942 units increased by 48% and 36%, respectively, compared to net contracts of $808.1 million and 1,427 units in FY 2011's six-month period. The average price per unit of net contracts signed in FY 2012's second quarter was approximately $585,000, compared to approximately $682,000 in FY 2012's first quarter and $570,000 in FY 2011's second quarter. FY 2012's first quarter contracts were positively impacted by 16 contracts signed at an average price of $4.1 million at The Touraine, the Company's 22-unit boutique condominium building under construction on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Excluding the Touraine, the average price of net signed contracts in FY 2012's second quarter was down 2% sequentially, compared to $596,000 in FY 2012's first quarter. In FY 2012, second-quarter cancellations totaled 32. This compared to 43 in FY 2012's first quarter, and 55, 57, 36, and 33, respectively, in FY 2011's fourth, third, second and first quarters. FY 2012's second-quarter cancellation rate (current-quarter cancellations divided by current-quarter signed contracts) was 2.4%. This compared to 6.2% in FY 2012's first quarter, and 7.9%, 7.4%, 3.9%, and 5.7%, respectively, in FY 2011's fourth, third, second and first quarters. As a percentage of beginning-quarter backlog, FY 2012's second-quarter cancellation rate was 1.8%. This compared to 2.6% in FY 2012's first quarter, and 3.1%, 3.2%, 2.4% and 2.3%, respectively, in FY 2011's fourth, third, second and first quarters. In FY 2012, second-quarter-end backlog of $1.5 billion and 2,403 units increased 49% in dollars and 37% in units from FY 2011's second-quarter-end backlog of $1.0 billion and 1,760 units. The average price of FY 2012's second-quarter-end backlog units was $624,000, compared to $572,000 at FY 2011's second-quarter end. The average price of FY 2012's second-quarter end backlog was nearly identical to the average price of FY 2012's first-quarter end backlog of $626,000. FY 2012's second- and first–quarter end backlogs was positively impacted by 20 units in backlog at an average price of $3.8 million at the Touraine. The Touraine is expected to deliver units in the Company's first half of FY 2013. Excluding the Touraine, the average price of backlog units at FY 2012's second–quarter end was $597,000, up 4%, compared to FY 2011's second-quarter-end backlog average price, and up 1% sequentially, compared to $591,000 in FY 2012's first-quarter end backlog, excluding the Touraine. In FY 2012's second quarter, unconsolidated entities in which the Company had an interest delivered $24.0 million of homes, compared to $52.3 million in the second quarter of FY 2011. In FY 2012's first six months, unconsolidated entities in which the Company had an interest delivered $47.5 million of homes, compared to $131.3 million in the same six-month period of FY 2011. The Company recorded its share of the results from these entities' operations in "Income (Loss) from Unconsolidated Entities" on the Company's Statement of Operations. In FY 2012's second quarter, unconsolidated entities in which the Company had an interest signed agreements for $38.2 million of homes, compared to $75.5 million in the second quarter of FY 2011. In FY 2012's first six months, unconsolidated entities in which the Company had an interest signed agreements for $59.7 million of homes, compared to $99.7 million in the same six-month period of FY 2011. In FY 2012's second quarter and first six months, the Company's Gibraltar Capital and Asset Management subsidiary reported pre-tax income of $5.2 million and $6.9 million respectively, compared to FY 2011's second quarter and first six month results of $0.9 million and $1.1 million. The Company ended its FY 2012 second quarter with $927 million in cash and marketable securities, compared to $719 million at 2012's first-quarter end and $1.25 billion at FY 2011's second-quarter end. The increase in cash between FY 2012's first and second quarters reflected the Company's issuance of $300 million of senior notes due in FY 2022, offset, in part, by the Company's use of $124 million for the purchase of land. At FY 2012's second-quarter end, it had $819 million available under its $885 million 12-bank credit facility, which matures in October 2014. The Company's Stockholders' Equity at FY 2012's second-quarter end increased to $2.63 billion, compared to $2.60 billion at FY 2012's first-quarter end. The Company ended FY 2012's second quarter with a net-debt-to-capital ratio(1) of 26.9%, compared to 25.0% at FY 2012's first-quarter end and 13.6% at FY 2011's second-quarter end.  The Company ended FY 2012's second quarter with approximately 39,500 lots owned and optioned, compared to 39,700 one quarter earlier, 35,900 one year earlier and 91,200 at its peak at FY 2006's second-quarter end. At 2012's second-quarter end, approximately 32,300 of these lots were owned, of which approximately 12,100 lots, including those in backlog, were substantially improved. The Company ended FY 2012's second quarter with 230 selling communities, compared to 228 at FY 2012's first-quarter end and 203 at FY 2011's second-quarter end. The Company now expects to end FY 2012 with between 230 to 245 selling communities, a slight decrease from its previous range of guidance: This is due to increased sales paces resulting in the sell-out of certain communities more quickly than previous projected. This compares to its peak of 325 communities at FY 2007's second-quarter end. Based on FY 2012's second-quarter-end backlog and the pace of activity at its communities, the Company currently estimates it will deliver between 2,700 and 3,200 homes in FY 2012. It believes the average delivered price for FY 2012's final two quarters will be between $560,000 and $580,000 per home. The Company expects to deliver approximately 10% more homes in FY 2012's fourth quarter than in FY 2012's third quarter. (1) Net debt-to-capital is calculated as total debt minus mortgage warehouse loans minus cash and marketable securities, divided by total debt minus mortgage warehouse loans minus cash and marketable securities plus stockholders' equity.
