Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, "The D.R. Horton team produced strong results in our second quarter, as our consolidated pre-tax income increased 18% to $353.9 million on $3.3 billion of revenues. The spring selling season is going well, as the value of our net sales orders increased by 52% sequentially from the December quarter and 17% from the March quarter last year. These results reflect the strength of our experienced operational teams, diverse product offerings through our family of brands and good market conditions across our broad national footprint.

"Our balance sheet strength, liquidity and continued earnings and cash flow generation are increasing our flexibility, and we plan to maintain our disciplined, opportunistic position to improve the long-term value of our company. We also remain focused on growing our revenues and pre-tax profits at a double-digit annual pace, while continuing to generate positive annual operating cash flows and improved returns. With 27,100 homes in inventory at the end of March and a robust supply of lots, we are well-positioned for the remainder of the spring and the second half of fiscal 2017."

The Company is updating its fiscal 2017 guidance as follows:

Increasing the range of consolidated revenues to $13.6 billion to $14.0 billion from $13.4 billion to $13.8 billion

Increasing the range of homes closed to 44,500 to 46,000 homes from 43,500 to 45,500 homes

Homebuilding SG&A expense of 8.8% to 9.1% of homebuilding revenues compared to prior guidance of approximately 9.0%

Increasing financial services pre-tax profit margin to approximately 35% from approximately 30%

An income tax rate of approximately 35.5% compared to prior guidance of approximately 35.0%

The Company reaffirms its previously issued fiscal 2017 guidance for other metrics including:

-- Consolidated pre-tax profit margin of 11.2% to 11.5%

-- Home sales gross margin of around 20%

-- Diluted share count of approximately 380 million shares

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 balance sheet strength, liquidity and continued earnings and cash flow generation are increasing our flexibility, and we plan to maintain our disciplined, opportunistic position to improve the long-term value of our company; that we remain focused on growing our revenues and pre-tax profits at a double-digit annual pace, while continuing to generate positive annual operating cash flows and improved returns and that with 27,100 homes in inventory at the end of March and a robust supply of lots, we are well-positioned for the remainder of the spring and the second half of fiscal 2017. The forward-looking statements also include that the Company is updating its fiscal 2017 guidance as follows: increasing the range of consolidated revenues to $13.6 billion to $14.0 billion from $13.4 billion to $13.8 billion; increasing the range of homes closed to 44,500 to 46,000 homes from 43,500 to 45,500 homes; homebuilding SG&A expense of 8.8% to 9.1% of homebuilding revenues compared to prior guidance of approximately 9.0%; increasing financial services pre-tax profit margin to approximately 35% from approximately 30%; and an income tax rate of approximately 35.5% compared to prior guidance of approximately 35.0%; and that the Company reaffirms its previously issued fiscal 2017 guidance for other metrics including: consolidated pre-tax profit margin of 11.2% to 11.5%; home sales gross margin of around 20%; diluted share count of approximately 380 million shares; and cash flow from operations in the range of $300 million to $500 million.

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: the cyclical nature of the homebuilding industry and changes in 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 provided by government agencies, changes in government financing 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; the effects of a health and safety incident; the effects of negative publicity; supply shortages and other risks of acquiring land, building materials and skilled labor; the impact of an inflationary, deflationary or higher interest rate environment; 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 regulations on our financial services operations; our significant debt 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 our growth strategies, acquisitions or investments successfully; the effects of the loss of key personnel; 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.
