85% Year-over-Year Increase in Consolidated Backlog Dollars to $1.67 Billion

MATAWAN, N.J., March 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: HOV), a leading national homebuilder, reported results for its fiscal first quarter ended January 31, 2021.

RESULTS FOR THE FIRST QUARTER ENDED JANUARY 31, 2021:

  • Total revenues increased 16.3% to $574.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, compared with $494.1 million in the same quarter of the prior year.

  • Homebuilding gross margin percentage, after cost of sales interest expense and land charges, increased 440 basis points to 17.3% for the three months ended January 31, 2021 compared with 12.9% during the same period a year ago.

  • Homebuilding gross margin percentage, before cost of sales interest expense and land charges, increased 340 basis points to 20.7% during the fiscal 2021 first quarter compared with 17.3% in last year’s first quarter.

  • Total SG&A was $63.7 million, or 11.1% of total revenues, in the fiscal 2021 first quarter compared with $60.4 million, or 12.2% of total revenues, in the previous year’s first quarter.

  • Total interest expense was $41.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with $43.1 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

  • Income from unconsolidated joint ventures was $1.9 million for the first quarter ended January 31, 2021 compared with $1.5 million in the fiscal 2020 first quarter.

  • Income before income taxes for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $19.6 million compared with a loss of $7.4 million in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year.

  • Adjusted pretax income, which is income before income taxes excluding land-related charges and gain on extinguishment of debt, was $21.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with a loss before these items of $14.1 million in the fiscal 2020 first quarter.

  • Net income was $19.0 million, or $2.75 per diluted common share, for the three months ended January 31, 2021 compared with a net loss of $9.1 million, or $1.49 per common share, in the first quarter of the previous fiscal year.

  • EBITDA increased 67.8% to $62.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with $37.0 million in the same quarter of the prior year.

  • For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, Adjusted EBITDA increased 110.6% to $63.9 million compared with $30.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

  • Financial services income before income taxes was $9.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, up 105.0% compared with $4.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

  • Consolidated contracts per community increased 74.2% to 16.9 contracts per community for the first quarter ended January 31, 2021 compared with 9.7 contracts per community in last year’s first quarter. Contracts per community, including domestic unconsolidated joint ventures(1), increased 69.9% to 15.8 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with 9.3 for the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

  • The number of consolidated contracts increased 34.5% to 1,778 homes during the fiscal 2021 first quarter, compared with 1,322 homes in last year’s first quarter. The number of contracts, including domestic unconsolidated joint ventures, for the three months ended January 31, 2021 increased 31.5% to 1,962 homes from 1,492 homes during the same quarter a year ago.

  • As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021, community count, including domestic unconsolidated joint ventures, was 124 communities, compared with 160 communities at January 31, 2020. Consolidated community count was 105 as of January 31, 2021, compared with 136 communities at the end of the previous year’s first quarter. The decline was primarily a result of selling out of communities at a faster than anticipated pace and delayed community openings.

  • Despite 1,385 first quarter consolidated deliveries, consolidated lots controlled increased by 733 lots sequentially to 26,782 at January 31, 2021 from 26,049 lots at October 31, 2020, which illustrated our ability to control more lots than we delivered.

  • Plan to reactivate approximately half of the lots representing multiple products in a large 1,400 home masterplan community in Northern California.

  • During February 2021, we raised home prices more aggressively to further increase margins and attempt to slow down our sales pace. After experiencing a 100.0% year-over-year increase in contracts per community in the month of January 2021, the contracts per community for February 2021 only increased 27.1% to 6.1 compared with 4.8 for the same month one year ago.

  • The dollar value of February 2021 consolidated contracts increased 8.6% to $283.0 million compared with $260.7 million in February last year; however, the number of consolidated contracts declined to 613 homes compared to 647 homes in February 2020.

  • The dollar value of consolidated contract backlog, as of January 31, 2021, increased 85.2% to $1.67 billion compared with $899.6 million as of January 31, 2020. The dollar value of contract backlog, including domestic unconsolidated joint ventures, as of January 31, 2021, increased 70.3% to $1.88 billion compared with $1.10 billion as of January 31, 2020.

  • Consolidated deliveries increased 12.1% to 1,385 homes in the fiscal 2021 first quarter compared with 1,236 homes in the previous year’s first quarter. For the fiscal 2021 first quarter, deliveries, including domestic unconsolidated joint ventures, increased 8.6% to 1,504 homes compared with 1,385 homes during the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

  • The contract cancellation rate for consolidated contracts was 17% for the first quarter ended January 31, 2021 compared with 19% in the fiscal 2020 first quarter. The contract cancellation rate for contracts including domestic unconsolidated joint ventures was 16% for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with 19% in the first quarter of the prior year.

(1)When we refer to “Domestic Unconsolidated Joint Ventures”, we are excluding results from our single community unconsolidated joint venture in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

LIQUIDITY AND INVENTORY AS OF JANUARY 31, 2021:

  • During the first quarter of fiscal 2021, land and land development spending was $178.6 million, an increase compared with $117.9 million in last year’s first quarter.

  • Total liquidity at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $306.4 million, above our targeted liquidity range of $170 million to $245 million.

  • Delivered 1,385 homes, but contracted to buy 2,140 new lots, net of walk aways, during the first quarter of fiscal 2021.

  • As of January 31, 2021, consolidated lots controlled totaled 26,782, which, based on trailing twelve-month deliveries, equaled a 4.6 years’ supply.

FINANCIAL GUIDANCE(2):

  • Assuming no changes in current market conditions, for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, total revenues are expected to be between $700 million and $750 million; adjusted pretax income is expected to be between $30 million and $45 million and adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $75 million and $90 million.

  • Assuming no changes in current market conditions, for all of fiscal 2021, total revenues are expected to be between $2.65 billion and $2.80 billion; adjusted pretax income is expected to be between $140 million and $160 million and adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $300 million and $340 million.

(2)The Company cannot provide a reconciliation between its non-GAAP projections and the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain significant items required for the reconciliation. These items include, but are not limited to, land-related charges, inventory impairment loss and land option write-offs and loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could have a material impact on GAAP reported results.

COMMENTS FROM MANAGEMENT:

“We are pleased with our fiscal 2021 first quarter results, as they exceeded the guidance we provided on our last conference call for gross margin percentage, total SG&A ratio, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted pretax income,” stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Contracts per community this quarter increased 74%, clearly indicating that demand for our homes remains very strong. We plan to continue to increase home prices in order to stay ahead of rising costs, maximize our profits and to better align our sales pace with our production capacity.”

“Our 85% increase in backlog dollars to $1.67 billion at the end of the first quarter sets us on solid footing to achieve dramatic year over year improvements in our fiscal 2021 financial performance. We ended the quarter with $306 million of liquidity, which provides us with ample capital to control land for future communities. We have made great progress in our land position, and virtually all the land we need to meet our projected deliveries in fiscal 2021 and 2022 is already under contract. Today, our land acquisition teams are primarily focused on obtaining control of land for home deliveries in fiscal 2023 and beyond,” said Mr. Hovnanian.

“We remain committed to further strengthening our balance sheet. In July 2021, one year prior to maturity, we currently plan to pay off in full the $111 million of our 10.0% senior secured notes due July 2022. Additionally, we also presently intend to pay off the remaining balance of $70 million of our 10.5% senior secured notes due July 2024 in advance of their maturity. The combination of our expected improved financial performance this year and the potential DTA valuation allowance reversal is expected to meaningfully increase our year end book value per share. Those increases to book value combined with executing on our debt reduction strategy this year would significantly improve our balance sheet,” stated J. Larry Sorsby, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
