Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights: FY 2012's fourth quarter net income was $411.4 million, or $2.35 per share, compared to $15.0 million, or $0.09 per share in FY 2011's fourth quarter. Included in FY 2012's fourth quarter was a net tax benefit of $350.7 million, which included the reversal of $400.0 million of the Company's deferred tax asset valuation reserves against its deferred tax asset, offset by a tax provision of $49.3 million. Net income also included pre-tax inventory write-downs of $1.5 million and $0.7 million of cash recoveries of prior joint venture write-offs, compared to pre-tax inventory write-downs of $18.2 million and a $0.4 million pre-tax loss from early repurchase of debt in FY 2011's fourth quarter. Pre-tax income was $60.7 million, compared to $15.3 million in FY 2011's fourth quarter. Revenues of $632.8 million and homebuilding deliveries of 1,088 units rose 48% in dollars and 44% in units, compared to FY 2011's fourth quarter. Net signed contracts of $684.1 million and 1,098 units rose 75% in dollars and 70% in units, compared to FY 2011's fourth quarter. On a per-community basis, FY 2012's fourth-quarter net signed contracts of 4.86 units per community were the highest for any fourth quarter since FY 2005. Backlog of $1.67 billion and 2,569 units rose 70% in dollars and 54% in units, compared to FY 2011's fourth-quarter-end backlog. The Company's cancellation rate (current-quarter cancellations divided by current-quarter signed contracts) was 4.6%, compared to 7.9% in FY 2011's fourth quarter. The average price of homes delivered was $582,000, compared to $576,000 in FY 2012's third quarter and $565,000 in FY 2011's fourth quarter. Gross margin, excluding interest and write-downs, was 24.6%, compared to 24.2% in FY 2011's fourth quarter. SG&A as a percentage of revenue improved to 11.8%, compared to 16.0% in FY 2011's fourth quarter due primarily to higher revenues and an insurance reserve reversal of $8.0 million. The Company ended FY 2012 with 224 selling communities, compared to 226 at FY 2012's third-quarter end, and 215 at FYE 2011. At FYE 2012 the Company had approximately 40,400 lots owned and optioned, compared to approximately 39,200 at FY 2012's third-quarter end and approximately 37,500 one year ago. FY 2012 Financial Highlights FY 2012 net income was $487.1 million, or $2.86 per share diluted, compared to FY 2011's net income of $39.8 million, or $0.24 per share diluted. Included in FY 2012's full year net income was a net tax benefit of $374.2 million, which included the reversal of $400.0 million of the Company's deferred tax asset valuation reserves against its deferred tax asset, offset by a tax provision of $25.8 million. Net income included pre-tax inventory write-downs of $14.7 million and $2.3 million of cash recoveries of prior joint venture write-offs, compared to pre-tax inventory write-downs of $92.7 million and a $3.8 million pre-tax loss from early repurchase of debt in FY 2011. FY 2011 net income also included a net tax benefit of $69.2 million. Pre-tax income was $112.9 million, compared to a pre-tax loss of $29.4 million in FY 2011. Revenues of $1.88 billion and homebuilding deliveries of 3,286 units rose 28% in dollars and 26% in units, compared to FY 2011. Net signed contracts of $2.56 billion and 4,159 units rose 59% in dollars and 49% in units, compared to FY 2011. On a per-community basis, FY 2012's net signed contracts of 18.2 units per community were the highest for any fiscal year since FY 2006. Gross margin, excluding interest and write-downs, was 24.0%, compared to 23.3% for FY 2011. SG&A as a percentage of revenue improved to 15.3% compared to 17.7% for FY 2011. Douglas C. Yearley, Jr., Toll Brothers' chief executive officer, stated: "Pent-up demand, rising home prices, low interest rates, and improving consumer confidence motivated buyers to return to the housing market in FY 2012. As household formations accelerated and unsold home inventories dropped to record lows, the industry took further steps toward a sustained housing recovery. "We enjoyed resurgent activity across all of our product lines and in most of our geographic regions. The momentum that began in our first quarter of FY 2012 built throughout the year. Sequentially, over the four quarters of FY 2012, the value of net signed contracts rose 45%, 51%, 66% and 75% compared to FY 2011's same four quarters. Our net contracts per community ("same store sales"), which increased 33% and 60% respectively versus FY 2011's full year and fourth quarter, were the highest for a fiscal year since FY 2006 and the highest for a fourth quarter since FY 2005. Now, five weeks into FY 2013, our contracts are up 34% versus FY 2012's same period. "Our large increase in FY 2012 contracts was achieved primarily through an increase in per-community sales. FY 2012's contracts per community of 18.2, while up 33% from FY 2011, were still 36% below our average annual pace from 1987 through 2006 of 28.6; therefore, as the economy strengthens, we believe there is great potential to increase sales paces per community. "We believe the publicly traded home building companies are growing market share: As the only national home building company focused on the luxury market, we are particularly well positioned. Our financial strength gives us a competitive advantage over the small and mid-sized private builders in our luxury niche whose access to capital and land remains constricted. "Our financial strength also gives us an advantage in buying land, as sellers know we have the appetite and capital to close transactions quickly. Since the start of our fourth quarter, we have been seeing great deal flow in some excellent locations. Our philosophy has always been to acquire exceptionally located sites – "on the corner of 'Main and Main.'" In contrast to the "just-in-time" model of some "land-light" builders, we often take this land through approvals while we have it under option and then improve it. This helps increase our profit margins and enables us to position the company for the future as we put land under control today that may translate into revenues starting several years later. "As the economy slowly heals and more customers re-enter the housing market, we look forward to the future. Based on our strong balance sheet, solid land holdings, recognized brand and excellent team of associates, we believe we are well-positioned for the housing market's continuing recovery." Martin P. Connor, Toll Brothers' chief financial officer, stated: "We ended FY 2012 with approximately $1.2 billion of cash and marketable securities, $814.9 million available under our 12-bank credit facility and a net-debt-to-capital ratio of 23.6%. Our stockholders' equity grew $535 million in FY 2012, due primarily to our operating income and the reversal of most of our valuation allowance. "Our strong credit ratings enable us to access the capital markets at industry-leading rates. This quarter we raised $287.5 million through a 20-year exchangeable note offering, callable in September 2017, with a 0.50% coupon and a conversion premium set at $49.08 per share - 50% above our then-current stock price of $32.72.  "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 with a backlog of $1.67 billion and 2,569 units, up 70% in dollars and 54% in units, compared to FYE 2011. With this backlog and the lowest cancellation rate in our industry, we believe we will deliver between 3,600 and 4,400 homes in FY 2013 at an average price of between $595,000 and $630,000 per home. We expect to end FY 2013 with between 225 and 255 selling communities." Robert I. Toll, executive chairman, stated: "Our optimism for our own and the housing industry's prospects is buoyed by basic demographics. During the last five years, population has continued to increase in the United States; however, household formations, a key driver of housing demand, have not kept pace. A recent study by Harvard University estimated that, based on historic trends, 1.8 to 2.8 million more U.S. households should have been formed since 2007 than actually were created. Recent trends suggest these formations are starting to occur.  "Meanwhile, new home production has been anemic. Many experts estimate that, going forward, the industry has to produce between 1.4 and 1.7 million new homes per year to keep pace with basic demographic-driven demand. From 2008 through 2011, that number dropped to 660,000 on average and is projected by the National Association of Home Builders to be about 757,000 for 2012. Clearly, more new home production will be needed to meet future demand. "While general economic trends are encouraging, we hope there is recognition among our leaders that policies supportive of a housing recovery will have an exponentially positive impact on job growth and that an increase in home values will translate into stronger family balance sheets, improved consumer confidence and a greater propensity to spend, which will accelerate the economic recovery.  "In a speech on November 15, 2012, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke stated the case for housing: 'Strengthening and broadening the housing recovery remain a critical challenge for policymakers, lenders and community leaders. The degree to which that challenge is met will help determine the strength and sustainability of the economic recovery and the extent to which its benefits are broadly felt.'" "Toll Brothers was named 2012 Builder of the Year by Professional Builder magazine a few weeks ago. As we end 2012 and look forward to 2013, Doug and I especially want to thank our co-workers. Their enthusiasm, diligence, perseverance, excellence and commitment to quality is why Toll Brothers received this honor."
