In these volatile markets we scrutinize hedge fund filings to get a reading on which direction each stock might be going. […]

Land and lots revenue was $26.2 million, an increase of 69.4% compared to $15.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.“Despite the challenges of operating during the COVID 19 pandemic, our Q2 2020 results are by far the best in the company’s history and continue to demonstrate the remarkable growth trajectory of the company. With Q2 2020 total revenues, EPS and ending backlog each at all-time records, we could not be more thrilled with our results. The 69% year-over-year growth in pretax-income is impressive and especially noteworthy considering that these results were achieved while reducing our net debt to total capital to 24%,” said Jim Brickman, Chief Executive Officer.“While the current health crisis continues to loom large across the country, we are cautiously optimistic that the pro-business markets where we operate and the wide range of quality homes offered by our Team Builders will continue to drive future success.  This optimism is grounded in the outstanding year-over year sales growth we witnessed in May and June of this year where each month exceeded the same month in the prior year by 52% and 82%, respectively.” “Our sales growth was largely made possible by the success of Trophy Signature Homes,” said Rick Costello, Chief Financial Officer. “From 18 net sales in Q2 2019 in a single community, Trophy closed 122 units for $43.5 million in revenues and sold 152 units this quarter with just 8 average selling communities and is now a fully established brand in the Dallas-Ft. Worth market. Trophy expects to open 15 new selling communities by the end of 2020 with most of those openings occurring during the third quarter of 2020.”Green Brick, like every other company in the United States and the global economy, has been impacted by the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic and the impact of governmental actions taken to combat the pandemic.While response to the COVID-19 outbreak continues to rapidly evolve, it has led to stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines that have seriously disrupted activities in large segments of the economy. Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to build, close and sell homes in our markets. Initially, sales slowed significantly. For example, during the final two weeks of March and through the end of April, the impact of shelter-in-place/stay-at-home restrictions reduced our net new home sales and our home sales per community as compared to the same period in the prior year and materially increased cancellations. As a result, our net sales in April 2020 were down by 43% from April 2019. However, during May and June 2020, our sales increased strongly and, with a cancellation rate more in line with our historical experience, we saw net sales increase by 52% and 82% over May and June 2019, respectively. We believe the recovery and expansion of our sales activity is related to a variety of factors, including historically low mortgage interest rates, the participation in home ownership in increasing amounts by the millennial generation, the desire of renters to leave high density living conditions, and the relative strength of the markets in which we operate.As we began to see increased market activity commencing in May and accelerating into June, we re-initiated much of the previously planned capital expenditures that we had placed on hold in March based on market uncertainty. Specifically, we restarted construction of unsold units, recommenced purchases of lots and land and resumed development of land to reflect the market activity. As we move into the third quarter, we continue to see growth, as evidenced by July 2020 showing a 29% increase in net sales over July 2019. We have initiated moderate product price increases to offset some cost input increases like lumber and expect to maintain our industry leading high margins. We continue to monitor our fixed costs to position us to be responsive to the changing market conditions and have delivered this growth without returning to prior overhead levels.The length and extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s financial performance, including the ability to execute on our future financial results, will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the pandemic and related government restrictions, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted.More disclosures related to the COVID-19 pandemic are available in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2020 on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Earnings Conference Call:We will host our earnings conference call to discuss our second quarter ended June 30, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. The call can be accessed by dialing 800-374-0137 for domestic participants or 904-685-8013 for international participants. Participants should reference conference ID code 1198789. A replay of the call will be available from approximately 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time on August 5, 2020 through 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on August 19, 2020. To access the replay, the domestic dial-in number is 855-859-2056, the international dial-in number is 404-537-3406 and the conference ID code is 1198789.Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Financial Metrics:In this press release, we utilize certain financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. We present these measures because we believe they and similar measures are useful to management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating performance and financing structure. We also believe these measures facilitate the comparison of our operating performance and financing structure with other companies in our industry. Because these measures are not calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.Reclassifications:Beginning in the first quarter of 2020, the Company reclassified the allowances for option deposits and pre-acquisition costs related to option contracts from selling, general and administrative expenses to other (loss) income, net in the consolidated statements of income to conform to current year presentation. Net allowances for deposits and pre-acquisition costs totaled a gain of $1.9 million and a loss of $1.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to losses of $0.0 million and $0.5 million in the prior year periods. There was no impact on net income from the reclassification in any period.GREEN BRICK PARTNERS, INC.

    Einhorn’s Greenlight Pares Losses With 4% Gain in July

    (Bloomberg) -- David Einhorn’s Greenlight Capital hedge funds rebounded 4.1% in July, helped by a rally in homebuilder Green Brick Partners Inc.The gain pared Greenlight’s year-to-date loss to 17.5%, according to an investor update on Friday viewed by Bloomberg. It was only the second positive month for Einhorn in 2020.Green Brick, the firm’s largest U.S. holding as of the end of the first quarter, rose 16% in July with low interest rates and the escalating Covid-19 crisis boosting housing stocks. Homebuilders “have additional intrinsic value to the consumer as safe havens from the pandemic and as workspaces,” BTIG analyst Carl Reichardt wrote in a note last week. Greenlight owns almost half of the company’s stock, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Einhorn follows a value-oriented strategy of stock-picking that’s mostly been out of favor in recent years. He revamped his approach early in 2019, vowing to make fewer, more-concentrated investments.The trader may have been hurt in July by some of his short wagers. As recently as May, he said he was still betting against Tesla Inc. and Netflix Inc. The carmaker’s shares soared 33% in July, while the streaming service climbed 7.4%.Einhorn has been unable to recoup losses that began in 2015, when the funds fell by 20%. The slump deepened in 2018, his worst year, when he lost 34%. Greenlight gained 14% last year, lagging behind the S&P 500.The firm managed $2.6 billion as of Jan. 1, down from $12 billion at its peak.A spokesman for the New York-based firm declined to comment.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
