MIAMI, Dec. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN and LEN.B), one of the nation's largest homebuilders, today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended November 30, 2022. Fourth quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2022 were $1.3 billion, or $4.55 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 billion, or $3.91 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2021. Net earnings attributable to Lennar for the year ended November 30, 2022 were $4.6 billion, or $15.72 per diluted share, compared to $4.4 billion, or $14.27 per diluted share for the year ended November 30, 2021. Excluding mark-to-market adjustments on technology investments in both years, and homebuilding impairments and deposit write-offs in 2022, fourth quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2022 were $1.5 billion, or $5.02 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2021 of $1.3 billion, or $4.36 per diluted share.

Stuart Miller, Executive Chairman of Lennar, said, "We are pleased to announce our fourth quarter results which were consistent with our previously articulated strategies. In the fourth quarter, our earnings were $1.3 billion, or $4.55 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 billion, or $3.91 per diluted share for the fourth quarter last year. Excluding mark-to-market losses on our technology investments, homebuilding impairments and deposit write-offs, fourth quarter earnings were $1.5 billion, or $5.02 per diluted share, compared to $1.3 billion, or $4.36 per diluted share for the fourth quarter last year, excluding mark-to-market losses, a 10% and 15% increase year over year, respectively."

Mr. Miller continued, "In the fourth quarter, consistent with our strategy of maintaining tight inventory control, our home deliveries were 20,064, up 13% over last year, and in line with our guidance estimate given at the beginning of the quarter. Additionally, we produced a pre-impairment homebuilding gross margin of 25.3% and homebuilding S,G&A expenses of 5.8%, leading to a 19.5% pre-impairment net margin. Our gross margin declined by 270 basis points year-over-year as we adjusted the price of both our new home sales and homes in backlog to market to reduce cancellation rates and promote deliveries."

We matched our starts pace to sales pace and drove sales by our "pricing to market" to turn inventory, generate cash, and maximize returns. Accordingly, our new orders in the fourth quarter were down 15%, year over year, which compares favorably to reported market conditions, including a cancellation rate of 26%, compared to 12% last year. Our sales volume and pricing have clearly been impacted by rising interest rates, but there remains a significant national shortage of housing, especially workforce housing, and there is still demand as we navigate the rebalance between price and interest rates."

"We have also remained very focused on our balance sheet and liquidity. Accordingly, at year end, we had homebuilding debt to capital of 14.4%, the lowest in our history, no borrowings on our $2.6 billion revolver and cash of $4.6 billion. With liquidity of $7.2 billion and no debt maturing until fiscal 2024, our balance sheet has never been in a stronger position than it is today."

Rick Beckwitt, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-President of Lennar, said, "Much of our balance sheet and inventory management progress was driven by our land strategy, while simultaneously driving sales, deliveries and managing production. During the quarter, we reassessed every deal in our land pipeline and worked with our strong land relationships to improve the underwriting on many deals. Our ending community count for the quarter was 1,208, which was up slightly from the third quarter. We also continued to make significant progress on our land light strategy. This was evidenced by our years supply of owned homesites improving to 2.5 years from 3.0 years and our controlled homesite percentage increasing to 63% from 59% year over year."

Jon Jaffe, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-President of Lennar, said, "During the quarter, consistent with our strategy of cost control and cycle time reduction, our homebuilding machine continued to be intensely focused on carefully managing production. Our cycle time during the quarter was flat sequentially, indicating that the well documented supply chain and labor issues that impacted our productivity are beginning to become more manageable and perhaps subside. Our quarterly starts and sales pace were 3.6 homes and 3.7 homes per community, respectively, and we ended the fourth quarter with approximately 900 completed, unsold homes, less than one home per community, demonstrating our focus on inventory management."

Mr. Miller concluded, "As we have seen over the past quarters, interest rates are fluctuating and are likely to continue to move, and the housing market will continue to rebalance pricing and interest rates. While we have a clear-cut strategy of execution, as we look towards 2023, we will only give broad boundaries for deliveries and gross margin. For the first quarter of 2023, the range for deliveries will be between 12,000 to 13,500 homes and gross margin will be about 21%. For the full year 2023, the range for deliveries will be between 60,000 to 65,000 homes. We continue to fortify our balance sheet with significant liquidity and operate from a position of strength, enabling us to continue to execute on our core strategies and outperform in periods of uncertainty."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

THREE MONTHS ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2022 COMPARED TO
THREE MONTHS ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2021

Homebuilding

Revenues from home sales increased 21% in the fourth quarter of 2022 to $9.7 billion from $8.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 13% increase in the number of home deliveries and an 8% increase in the average sales price. New home deliveries increased to 20,064 homes in the fourth quarter of 2022 from 17,819 homes in the fourth quarter of 2021. The average sales price of homes delivered was $483,000 in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $448,000 in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Gross margins on home sales were $2.4 billion, or 24.8% (25.3% pre-impairment), in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $2.2 billion, or 28.0%, in the fourth quarter of 2021. Gross margins in the fourth quarter of 2022 include $30.8 million of homebuilding impairments in eight communities and $13.6 million of impairments to the Company's homes in backlog. During the fourth quarter of 2022, gross margin decreased due to an increase in costs per square foot primarily due to higher material and labor costs and higher land costs, which were partially offset by an increase in revenues per square foot, which was negatively impacted by higher sales incentives. Gross loss on land sales was $21.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, which includes $37.2 million of deposit write-offs as the Company walked away from 27,800 controlled homesites. This compared to gross margin on land sales of $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $563.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $477.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 5.8% in the fourth quarter of 2022, from 6.0% in the fourth quarter of 2021. This was the lowest percentage in the Company's history primarily due to an increase in leverage as a result of higher volume and average sales price and benefits of the Company's technology efforts.

Financial Services

Operating earnings for the Financial Services segment were $124.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $111.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The increase in operating earnings was primarily due to higher volume and lower costs in the Company's title business due to benefits of the Company's technology efforts.

Other Ancillary Businesses

Operating earnings for the Multifamily segment were $14.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $9.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Operating loss for the Lennar Other segment was $106.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to an operating loss of $176.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Lennar Other operating loss for both the fourth quarter of 2022 and 2021 was primarily due to negative mark-to-market adjustments on the Company's publicly traded technology investments.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

YEAR ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2022 COMPARED TO
YEAR ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2021

Homebuilding

Revenues from home sales increased 25% in the year ended November 30, 2022 to $31.8 billion from $25.3 billion in the year ended November 30, 2021. Revenues were higher primarily due to an 11% increase in the number of home deliveries and a 13% increase in the average sales price. New home deliveries increased to 66,399 homes in the year ended November 30, 2022 from 59,825 homes in the year ended November 30, 2021. The average sales price of homes delivered was $480,000 in the year ended November 30, 2022, compared to $424,000 in the year ended November 30, 2021.

Gross margins on home sales were $8.8 billion, or 27.5% (27.7% pre-impairment), in the year ended November 30, 2022, compared to $6.8 billion, or 26.8%, in the year ended November 30, 2021. Gross margins in the year ended November 30, 2022 include $33.6 million of homebuilding impairments in nine communities and $18.1 million of impairments to the Company's homes in backlog taken during the year. During the year ended November 30, 2022, an increase in costs per square foot primarily due to higher materials and labor costs, was mostly offset by an increase in revenues per square foot. Overall, gross margins improved year over year as land costs remained relatively flat while interest expense decreased as a result of the Company's focus on reducing debt. Gross loss on land sales was $28.5 million in the year ended November 30, 2022, which includes $47.9 million of deposit write-offs as the Company walked away from 42,000 controlled homesites. This compared to gross margin on land sales of $24.3 million in the year ended November 30, 2021.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $2.0 billion in the year ended November 30, 2022, compared to $1.8 billion in the year ended November 30, 2021. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 6.2% in the year ended November 30, 2022, from 7.1% in the year ended November 30, 2021, due to a decrease in broker commissions, an increase in leverage, and benefits of the Company's technology efforts.

Financial Services

Operating earnings for the Financial Services segment were $381.9 million in the year ended November 30, 2022. The operating earnings included a $35.5 million one-time charge due to an increase in a litigation accrual in the third quarter related to a court judgment. The Company has appealed this judgment since it believes there were clear errors of law made by the trial court. Excluding this one-time charge, operating earnings were $417.4 million, compared to operating earnings of $490.4 million in the year ended November 30, 2021. The decrease in operating earnings was primarily due to lower mortgage net margins driven by a more competitive mortgage market, partially offset by an increase in rate lock volume. Mortgage results were partially offset by the Company's title earnings, which increased primarily due to higher revenues per transaction and lower costs due to benefits of the Company's technology efforts.

Other Ancillary Businesses

Operating earnings for the Multifamily segment were $66.8 million in the year ended November 30, 2022, compared to $21.5 million in the year ended November 30, 2021. Operating loss for the Lennar Other segment was $735.6 million in the year ended November 30, 2022, compared to operating earnings of $733.0 million in the year ended November 30, 2021. Lennar Other operating loss for the year ended November 30, 2022 was primarily due to negative mark-to-market adjustments on the Company's publicly traded technology investments. The operating earnings for the year ended November 30, 2021 were primarily due to positive mark-to-market adjustments on the Company's publicly traded technology investments and the gain on the sale of the Company's solar business.

Debt Transaction

During the year ended November 30, 2022, the Company retired early $575 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.75% senior notes due November 2022. The redemption price, which was paid in cash, was 100% of the principal amount plus accrued but unpaid interest.

Tax Rate

For both the years ended November 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company had a tax provision of $1.4 billion, which resulted in an overall effective income tax rate of 22.8% and 23.5%, respectively. The Company's overall effective income tax rate was lower in 2022 primarily due to the resolution of an uncertain state tax position and the retroactive reinstatement of the energy efficient home credits for 2022, resulting from the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act by Congress.

Share Repurchases

During the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 1.6 million shares of its common stock for $120.5 million at an average per share price of $75.32. For the year ended November 30, 2022, the Company repurchased 11.0 million shares of its common stock for $967.4 million at an average per share price of $88.20.

Liquidity

At November 30, 2022, the Company had $4.6 billion of Homebuilding cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings under its $2.6 billion revolving credit facility, thereby providing $7.2 billion of available capacity.

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.

Net homebuilding debt to total capital is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net homebuilding debt (homebuilding debt
less homebuilding cash and cash equivalents) divided by total capital (net homebuilding debt plus stockholders' equity). The
Company believes the ratio of net homebuilding debt to total capital is a relevant and a useful financial measure to investors
in understanding the leverage employed in homebuilding operations. However, because net 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.
