The Company’s cancellation rate (cancelled sales orders divided by gross sales orders) for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was 24% compared to 17% in the prior year quarter. Net sales orders for the first nine months of fiscal 2022 decreased 4% to 62,555 homes and increased 15% in value to $24.9 billion compared to 65,429 homes and $21.7 billion in the same period of fiscal 2021. The Company's sales order backlog of homes under contract at June 30, 2022 decreased 9% to 29,244 homes and increased 8% in value to $11.9 billion compared to 32,209 homes and $11.0 billion at June 30, 2021.

At June 30, 2022, the Company had 56,400 homes in inventory, of which 27,200 were unsold. 1,400 of the Company’s unsold homes at June 30, 2022 were completed.

The Company's return on equity (ROE) was 35.1% for the trailing twelve months ended June 30, 2022, and homebuilding return on inventory (ROI) was 41.7% for the same period. ROE is calculated as net income attributable to D.R. Horton for the trailing twelve months divided by average stockholders' equity, where average stockholders' equity is the sum of ending stockholders' equity balances of the trailing five quarters divided by five. Homebuilding ROI is calculated as homebuilding pre-tax income for the trailing twelve months divided by average inventory, where average inventory is the sum of ending homebuilding inventory balances for the trailing five quarters divided by five.

The Company ended the third quarter with $1.2 billion of unrestricted homebuilding cash and $1.6 billion of available capacity on its revolving credit facility for total homebuilding liquidity of $2.8 billion. Homebuilding debt at June 30, 2022 totaled $3.7 billion, which includes $350 million of senior notes that mature in September 2022. The Company’s homebuilding debt to total capital ratio at June 30, 2022 was 17.0%. Homebuilding debt to total capital ratio consists of homebuilding notes payable divided by stockholders’ equity plus homebuilding notes payable.

Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, "The D.R. Horton team delivered strong results in the third fiscal quarter of 2022, highlighted by EPS increasing 53% to $4.67 per diluted share. Our consolidated pre-tax income increased 54% to $2.2 billion on a 21% increase in revenues to $8.8 billion and a 540 basis point increase in our pre-tax profit margin to 24.8%. These results reflect our experienced teams and production capabilities, industry-leading market share, broad geographic footprint and diverse product offerings across multiple brands.

"During the first half of fiscal 2022 and most of our third quarter, housing market conditions remained strong. During the quarter, we were still selling homes later in the construction cycle to better ensure the certainty of the home close date for our homebuyers as we continued working to stabilize our construction cycle times. In June, we began to see a moderation in housing demand as mortgage interest rates increased substantially and inflationary pressures remained elevated. Although these pressures may persist for some time, we believe we are well-positioned to meet changing market conditions with our affordable product offerings and lot supply and our strong trade and supplier relationships.

"The strength of our balance sheet, liquidity and low leverage provide us significant financial flexibility, and we are managing our homes in inventory to maximize returns and improve capital efficiency in each of our communities while continuing to increase market share. We plan to maintain our disciplined approach to investing capital to enhance the long-term value of our company, including returning capital to our shareholders through both dividends and share repurchases on a consistent basis."

Guidance

Based on the Company’s results for the first nine months of fiscal 2022, expected completion dates of homes under construction and current market conditions, D.R. Horton is updating its fiscal 2022 guidance as follows:

  • Consolidated revenues in a range from $33.8 billion to $34.6 billion

  • Homes closed between 83,000 and 85,000 homes

The Company plans to also provide guidance for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 on its conference call today.
