D.R. Horton, Inc., America's Builder, Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Earnings

06:00 EDT Thursday, July 25, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas (Business Wire) -- D.R. Horton, Inc. (NYSE:DHI), America's Builder, today reported that pre-tax income for its third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013 increased 184% to $205.1 million, compared to $72.2 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2012. Homebuilding revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 47% to $1.6 billion from $1.1 billion in the same quarter of 2012. The current quarter's home sales gross margin of 21.4% includes an 80 basis point benefit from unusually large cash reimbursements related to previously incurred litigation costs as compared to reimbursements in the prior year quarter. Net income for the third fiscal quarter was $146.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, compared to $787.8 million, or $2.22 per diluted share, in the same quarter of fiscal 2012. The prior year quarterly results included a non-cash tax benefit of $716.7 million from a reduction of the Company's valuation allowance for its deferred tax asset.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2013, the Company's pre-tax income increased 217% to $455.1 million, compared to $143.7 million in the same period of 2012. Homebuilding revenue for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 increased 45% to $4.3 billion from $2.9 billion in the first nine months of fiscal 2012. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 was $323.2 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, compared to $856.2 million, or $2.47 per diluted share, in the same period of fiscal 2012. The nine-month results in 2013 and 2012 included non-cash tax benefits of $19.3 million and $716.7 million, respectively, from a reduction of the Company's valuation allowance for its deferred tax asset.

Net sales orders for the third quarter ended June 30, 2013 increased 12% to 6,822 homes from 6,079 homes in the year-ago quarter and the value of net sales orders increased 30% to $1.8 billion from $1.4 billion. The Company's cancellation rate (cancelled sales orders divided by gross sales orders) for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was 24%. Net sales orders for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 increased 27% to 19,960 homes from 15,772 homes in the first nine months of fiscal 2012 and the value of net sales orders increased 45% to $5.1 billion from $3.5 billion. The Company's sales order backlog of homes under contract at June 30, 2013 increased 36% to 9,911 homes from 7,311 homes at June 30, 2012. The value of the backlog increased 56% to $2.6 billion at June 30, 2013 from $1.7 billion a year ago.

The Company ended the quarter with $607.8 million of homebuilding unrestricted cash and net homebuilding debt to total capital of 36.6%. Net homebuilding debt to total capital consists of homebuilding notes payable net of cash divided by total equity plus homebuilding notes payable net of cash.

Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, “Our homebuilding and financial services operations delivered strong results again this quarter, with a 580 basis point improvement in our pre-tax income margin to 12.1% and a 184% increase in our pre-tax income to $205.1 million. Homes sold, closed and in backlog all increased double-digit percentages, while the dollar values all increased 30% or more. Our average sales price increased 15% to $268,000, reflecting pricing power across most of our markets and increased demand from move-up buyers. Our gross margin on home sales improved 340 basis points to 21.4%, and our SG&A expense ratio improved 200 basis points to 10.2% as we leveraged the fixed costs in our overhead structure. Our strengthening operating metrics combined with our backlog of 9,911 homes at June 30, 2013 position us for a strong finish to our fiscal year.”

The Company will host a conference call today (Thursday, July 25th) at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time. The dial-in number is 877-407-8033, and the call will also be webcast from www.drhorton.com on the “Investors” page.

Portions of this document may constitute “forward-looking statements” as defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Although D.R. Horton believes any such statements are based on reasonable assumptions, there is no assurance that actual outcomes will not be materially different. All forward-looking statements are based upon information available to D.R. Horton on the date this release was issued. D.R. Horton does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Forward-looking statements in this release include that our strengthening operating metrics combined with our backlog of 9,911 homes at June 30, 2013 position us for a strong finish to our fiscal year. Factors that may cause the actual results to be materially different from the future results expressed by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: potential deterioration in homebuilding industry conditions and the current weak U.S. economy; the cyclical nature of the homebuilding industry and changes in general economic, real estate and other conditions; constriction of the credit markets, which could limit our ability to access capital and increase our costs of capital; reductions in the availability of mortgage financing and the liquidity provided by government-sponsored enterprises, the effects of government programs, a decrease in our ability to sell mortgage loans on attractive terms or an increase in mortgage interest rates; the risks associated with our land and lot inventory; home warranty and construction defect claims; supply shortages and other risks for acquiring land, building materials and skilled labor; reductions in the availability of performance bonds; increases in the costs of owning a home; the effects of governmental regulations and environmental matters on our homebuilding operations; the effects of governmental regulation on our financial services operations; our debt obligations and our ability to comply with related debt covenants, restrictions and limitations; competitive conditions within the homebuilding and financial services industries; our ability to effect any future growth strategies successfully; the impact of an inflationary or deflationary environment; our ability to realize the full amount of our deferred income tax asset; and information technology failures and data security breaches. Additional information about issues that could lead to material changes in performance is contained in D.R. Horton's annual report on Form 10-K and our most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q, both of which are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
