Lennar Corporation (LEN AND LEN.B), one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, today reported results for its second quarter ended May 31, 2017. Second quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2017 were $213.6 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to second quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2016 of $218.5 million, or $0.95 per diluted share.

Stuart Miller, Chief Executive Officer of Lennar Corporation, said, "We are pleased to announce our second quarter results as we achieved net earnings of $213.6 million, or $0.91 per diluted share. These strong results were supported by an improved macroeconomic environment, renewed optimism, wage and job growth, and increased consumer confidence. We are now seeing, contrary to recent reports on housing starts and building permits, more of a reversion to normal in the housing market than the slow and steady recovery pace of the last several years.

Mr. Miller continued, "The overall market improvement was supported by our highest quarterly new orders in the last ten years of 8,898 homes, a 12% increase year over year. Home deliveries and revenues from home sales increased 15% and 18%, respectively, year over year, while our backlog dollar value increased 20% to $4.0 billion.

"Our core homebuilding business continued to produce solid operating results in the second quarter as our gross margin and operating margin on home sales were 21.5% and 12.1%, respectively. Even with 20 basis points of WCI transaction-related expenses, our SG&A as a percentage of revenues from home sales of 9.3% matched the lowest second quarter SG&A percentage in our history, primarily due to improved operating leverage and our continued focus on investing in new technologies.

"Complementing our homebuilding business, our Financial Services business reported strong earnings of $43.7 million in our second quarter, consistent with the prior year, despite a significant decrease in refinance transactions because of higher interest rates. This decrease was primarily offset by higher profit per transaction in our title operations.

"Our Multifamily business generated $6.5 million of earnings in the second quarter of 2017, driven by the sale of an apartment property by one of its joint ventures under its merchant build program. With its geographically diversified pipeline of multifamily product and increased activity in our Lennar Multifamily Venture, this segment continues to grow while capitalizing on future development opportunities.

"Our Rialto business generated $6.2 million of earnings in the second quarter of 2017. During the quarter, our investment management platform performed well, while our mortgage finance business continued its consistent program of producing strong results.

"Finally, FivePoint completed its initial public offering in May 2017, of which we now own approximately 40%. As a now public company with quarterly filings, Lennar shareholders will have greater transparency into FivePoint, which will provide an even better understanding of our strategic investment.

Mr. Miller concluded, "With a strong balance sheet, a solid backlog and carefully-crafted strategies in our core and ancillary businesses, we are well positioned to continue our strong performance for 2017."

Lennar Homebuilding

Revenues from home sales increased 18% in the second quarter of 2017 to $2.9 billion from $2.4 billion in the second quarter of 2016. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 15% increase in the number of home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, and a 3% increase in the average sales price of homes delivered. New home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, increased to 7,687 homes in the second quarter of 2017 from 6,711 homes in the second quarter of 2016. There was an increase in home deliveries in all of the Company’s Homebuilding segments and Homebuilding Other. The average sales price of homes delivered was $374,000 in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $362,000 in the second quarter of 2016. Sales incentives offered to homebuyers were $22,700 per home delivered in the second quarter of 2017, or 5.7% as a percentage of home sales revenue, compared to $21,800 per home delivered in the second quarter of 2016, or 5.7% as a percentage of home sales revenue, and $22,700 per home delivered in the first quarter of 2017, or 5.9% as a percentage of home sales revenue.

Gross margins on home sales were $616.9 million, or 21.5%, in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $561.5 million, or 23.1%, in the second quarter of 2016. Gross margin percentage on home sales decreased compared to the second quarter of 2016 primarily due to an increase in construction and land costs per home.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $268.4 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $224.8 million in the second quarter of 2016. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses were 9.3% in the second quarter of 2017, consistent with the second quarter of 2016. WCI transaction-related expenses had a negative 20 basis point impact to selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues from home sales in the second quarter of 2017.

Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was $21.5 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $9.6 million in the second quarter of 2016. In the second quarter of 2017, Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was primarily attributable to the Company’s share of net operating losses from its unconsolidated entities. The operating losses from the Company’s unconsolidated entities were primarily driven by general and administrative expenses, as there were no significant land sale transactions during the second quarter of 2017. In the second quarter of 2016, Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was primarily attributable to the Company’s share of costs associated with the FivePoint combination. This was partially offset by $6.7 million of equity in earnings from one of the Company’s unconsolidated entities primarily due to sales of homesites to third parties.

Lennar Homebuilding other income, net, was $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $13.7 million in the second quarter of 2016. Other income, net, in the second quarter of 2016 was primarily related to a profit participation received by one of Lennar Homebuilding’s consolidated joint ventures.

Lennar Homebuilding interest expense was $71.9 million in the second quarter of 2017 ($69.9 million was included in costs of homes sold, $0.7 million in costs of land sold and $1.3 million in other income, net), compared to $63.9 million in the second quarter of 2016 ($62.1 million was included in costs of homes sold, $0.6 million in costs of land sold and $1.2 million in other income, net). Interest expense included in costs of homes sold increased primarily due to an increase in home deliveries.

Lennar Financial Services

Operating earnings for the Lennar Financial Services segment were $43.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $44.1 million in the second quarter of 2016. Operating earnings were impacted by a significant decrease in refinance transactions, offset by higher profit per transaction in the segment’s title operations.

Rialto

Operating earnings for the Rialto segment were $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2017 (which included a $6.5 million operating loss and an add back of $12.6 million of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests). Operating loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $13.8 million (which included an $18.1 million operating loss and an add back of $4.3 million of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests). The increase in operating earnings is primarily due to an increase in incentive income related to carried interest distributions from the Rialto real estate funds, partially offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses and real estate owned impairments. In addition, the second quarter of 2016 included a $16.0 million write-off of uncollectible receivables related to a hospital, which was acquired through the resolution of one of Rialto’s loans from a 2010 portfolio.

Lennar Multifamily

Operating earnings for the Lennar Multifamily segment were $6.5 million in the second quarter of 2017, primarily due to the segment’s $11.4 million share of a gain as a result of the sale of an operating property by one of Lennar Multifamily’s unconsolidated entities, partially offset by general and administrative expenses. In the second quarter of 2016, the Lennar Multifamily segment had operating earnings of $14.9 million primarily due to the segment’s $15.4 million share of a gain as a result of the sale of an operating property by one of its unconsolidated entities and a gain of $5.2 million on a third-party land sale.

Corporate General and Administrative Expenses

Corporate general and administrative expenses were $66.8 million, or 2.0% as a percentage of total revenues, in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $55.8 million, or 2.0% as a percentage of total revenues, in the second quarter of 2016.

Noncontrolling Interests

Net earnings (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests were ($12.9) million and $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively. Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests during the second quarter of 2017 was primarily attributable to a net loss related to the FDIC’s interest in the portfolio of real estate loans that the Company acquired in partnership with the FDIC. Net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests in the second quarter of 2016 were primarily attributable to earnings related to Lennar Homebuilding consolidated joint ventures, partially offset by a net loss related to the FDIC’s interest in the portfolio of real estate loans that the Company acquired in partnership with the FDIC.

(2) Amount represents interest incurred related to Lennar Homebuilding debt.
(3) EBIT is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as earnings before interest and taxes. This financial measure has been presented because the Company finds it important and useful in evaluating its performance and believes that it helps readers of the Company’s financial statements compare its operations with those of its competitors. Although management finds EBIT to be an important measure in conducting and evaluating the Company’s operations, this measure has limitations as an analytical tool as it is not reflective of the actual profitability generated by the Company during the period. Management compensates for the limitations of using EBIT by using this non-GAAP measure only to supplement the Company’s GAAP results. Due to the limitations discussed, EBIT should not be viewed in isolation, as it is not a substitute for GAAP measures.

(1) Net Lennar Homebuilding debt to total capital is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net Lennar Homebuilding debt (Lennar Homebuilding debt less Lennar Homebuilding cash and cash equivalents) divided by total capital (net Lennar Homebuilding debt plus stockholders’ equity). The Company believes the ratio of net Lennar Homebuilding debt to total capital is a relevant and a useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in Lennar Homebuilding operations. However, because net Lennar Homebuilding debt to total capital is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, this financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures prescribed by GAAP. Rather, this non-GAAP financial measure should be used to supplement the Company’s GAAP results.
