NVR, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Results

·12 min read

RESTON, Va., Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR), one of the nation's largest homebuilding and mortgage banking companies, announced net income for its third quarter ended September 30, 2020 of $256,466,000, or $65.11 per diluted share. Net income and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 increased 15% and 16%, respectively, when compared to 2019 third quarter net income of $223,787,000, or $56.11 per diluted share. Consolidated revenues for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $1,990,012,000, which increased 4% from $1,911,264,000 in the third quarter of 2019.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, consolidated revenues were $5,192,908,000, a 4% decrease from $5,398,469,000 reported for 2019. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $596,244,000, a decrease of 4% when compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $153.03, a decrease of 2% from $156.61 per diluted share for 2019.

Homebuilding

New orders in the third quarter of 2020 increased by 40% to 6,681 units, when compared to 4,766 units in the third quarter of 2019. New orders have been favorably impacted by robust demand attributable to historically low mortgage interest rates and lower resale inventory levels. The average sales price of new orders in the third quarter of 2020 was $384,200, an increase of 4% when compared with the third quarter of 2019. The cancellation rate in the third quarter of 2020 decreased to 12% compared to 16% in the third quarter of 2019. Settlements increased in the third quarter of 2020 to 5,180 units, which was 1% higher than the third quarter of 2019. Our backlog of homes sold but not settled as of September 30, 2020 increased on both a unit and dollar basis by 32% and 37%, respectively, to 12,124 units and $4,655,510,000 compared to the respective backlog unit and dollar balances as of September 30, 2019.

Homebuilding revenues of $1,920,751,000 in the third quarter of 2020 increased 3% compared to homebuilding revenues of $1,873,331,000 in the third quarter of 2019. Gross profit margin in the third quarter of 2020 increased to 20.0%, compared to 19.0% in the third quarter of 2019. Income before tax from the homebuilding segment totaled $269,645,000 in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 10% when compared to the third quarter of 2019.

Mortgage Banking

Mortgage closed loan production in the third quarter of 2020 totaled $1,382,060,000, an increase of 1% when compared to the third quarter of 2019. Income before tax from the mortgage banking segment totaled $51,812,000 in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 142% when compared to $21,400,000 in the third quarter of 2019. This increase is due primarily to an increase in secondary marketing gains on sales of loans.

Effective Tax Rate

Our effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was 20.2% and 13.9%, respectively, compared to 16.2% and 14.8% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. The effective tax rate in each period was favorably impacted by the recognition of an income tax benefit related to excess tax benefits from stock option exercises totaling $17,834,000 and $80,343,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, and $27,604,000 and $86,809,000, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

Other Matters - COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all facets of our business. Our primary focus as we face this challenge is to do everything we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and trade partners. We are currently able to operate in all of the markets we serve. In each of our markets, we continue to operate in accordance with the safety guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local guidelines.

There is uncertainty regarding the extent and timing of disruption to our business that may result from COVID-19 and related governmental actions. There is also uncertainty as to the effects of economic relief efforts on the U.S. economy, unemployment, consumer confidence, demand for our homes and the mortgage market, including lending standards and secondary mortgage markets. We are unable to predict the extent to which this will impact our operational and financial performance including the impact of future developments such as the duration and spread of COVID-19, corresponding governmental actions, and the impact of such on our employees, customers and trade partners.
