Management Commentary “As we reported in our preliminary results last month, we closed out 2020 with one of the strongest quarters in our history,” said John Ho, CEO of Landsea Homes. “These results are a direct reflection of our team’s ability to swiftly execute our strategic shift to selling a higher volume of more affordable home offerings, and we are especially proud to have done so during the COVID-19 pandemic. While we were able to significantly increase the total number of homes delivered, we also closed out the year with a substantial backlog that increased over sixfold from 2019, setting us up for continued success this year. “In fact, we believe the housing market is poised to be one of the strongest in recent memory. The vast majority of Americans are continuing to work from home, and we have more millennials than ever looking for entry and move-up level homes as they hope to take advantage of the current low interest rate environment. If you combine these favorable macroeconomic conditions with the recent influx in capital from our business combination, our innovative and unique High Performance Homes and LiveFlex™ offerings, and our strategic shift into high-growth, affordable housing markets, we are well positioned to increase shareholder value.” Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial and Operational Results Total revenue was $284.7 million compared to $286.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The slight decline was primarily due to the Company not having any lot sales in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $11.0 million in the same period of 2019. Excluding lot sales from total revenue, total home sales increased 3% to $284.7 million compared to $275.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Total homes delivered increased 111% to 587 homes at an average sales price of $485,000 compared to 278 homes delivered at an average sales price of $990,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019. Net new home orders increased 182% to 415 homes with a dollar value of $235.4 million, an average sales price of $567,000 and a monthly absorption rate of 4.5 sales per active community compared to 147 homes with a dollar value of $130.6 million, an average sales price of $888,000 and a monthly absorption rate of 2.4 sales per active community in the prior year period. The decline in average sales price remains consistent with the Company’s strategic shift to selling a higher volume of entry and move-up level homes, along with having a higher percentage of orders in Arizona. Home sales gross margin increased 10 basis points to 15.0% compared to 14.9% in the prior year period. Adjusted home sales gross margin (a non-GAAP measure) was 22.1% compared to 23.5% in the prior year period. The decline was primarily driven by lower interest in cost of home sales and higher purchase price accounting for acquired inventory. Net income attributable to Landsea Homes was $10.7 million compared to $12.9 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net income attributable to Landsea Homes (a non-GAAP measure) was $19.4 million compared to $21.2 million in the prior year period. The slight decline was primarily a result of an increase in sales and marketing expenses related to promoting a broader base of new housing developments for sale and an increase in sales tax from the Arizona market. Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $36.1 million compared to $40.0 million in the prior year quarter, with the decline primarily driven by the aforementioned increase in operating expenses. Full Year 2020 Financial and Operational Results Total revenue increased 16% to $734.6 million compared to $631.0 million in 2019, with total home sales increasing 29% compared to the prior year. The Company did not have any lot sales in 2020 compared to $62.1 million in 2019. Total homes delivered increased 156% to 1,527 homes at an average sales price of $481,000 compared to 597 homes delivered at an average sales price of $953,000 in 2019. Net new home orders increased 294% to 1,891 homes with a dollar value of $968.4 million, an average sales price of $512,000 and a monthly absorption rate of 5.2 sales per active community compared to 480 homes with a dollar value of $461.3 million, an average sales price of $961,000 and a monthly absorption rate of 2.7 sales per active community in the prior year. The decline in average sales price is a result of the aforementioned strategic shift to sell a higher volume of entry and move-up level homes across geographies with lower price points. Total homes in backlog increased 520% to 750 homes with a dollar value of $389.3 million and an average sales price of $519,000 at December 31, 2020, compared to 121 homes with a dollar value of $84.0 million and an average sales price of $694,000 at December 31, 2019. Total lots owned or controlled at December 31, 2020, increased 41% to 6,680 compared to 4,724 at December 31, 2019. Home sales gross margin was 12.9% compared to 16.0% in the prior year. Adjusted home sales gross margin (a non-GAAP measure) was 20.7% compared to 23.5% in 2019. The decline was a result of COVID-related incentives and job site expenses, along with the aforementioned increased purchase price accounting adjustments. Net loss attributable to Landsea Homes was $9.0 million compared to net income of $17.2 million in the prior year. The decrease was a result of a significant increase in the purchase price accounting adjustments for acquired inventory of Garrett Walker Homes, along with higher sales and marketing expenses related to the increase in sales tax from the Arizona market. Adjusted net income attributable to Landsea Homes (a non-GAAP measure) was $28.0 million compared to $37.9 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $65.0 million compared to $73.9 million in 2019. Liquidity At December 31, 2020, cash and cash equivalents totaled $105.8 million compared to $154.0 million at December 31, 2019. Total debt was $264.8 million compared to $190.0 million at December 31, 2019. As a reminder, the Company’s balance sheet at December 31, 2020, does not reflect the influx of approximately $107 million in net proceeds from the closing of the business combination with LF Capital Acquisition Corporation (“LF Capital”) on January 7, 2021 (the “Business Combination”). Landsea Homes’ ratio of debt to capital was 33.3% at December 31, 2020, compared to 24.6% at December 31, 2019. The Company’s net debt to net book capitalization was 22.6% at December 31, 2020, compared to 5.4% at December 31, 2019. 2021 Outlook Landsea Homes currently expects to report approximately $883 million in total revenue for 2021, with total homes delivered of 1,979 at an average sales price of $446,000. The Company also expects to report adjusted net income attributable to Landsea Homes of approximately $44 million in 2021. These expectations for 2021 are being driven by organic growth, along with the benefit from potential near-term acquisition targets.

In the following table, we calculate gross margins adjusting for interest in cost of sales, inventory impairments (if applicable), and purchase price accounting for acquired work in process inventory (if applicable). This non-GAAP financial measure should not be used as a substitute for the Company's operating results in accordance with GAAP. An analysis of any non-GAAP financial measure should be used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe this non-GAAP measure is meaningful because it provides insight into the impact that financing arrangements and acquisitions have on our homebuilding gross margin and allows for comparability of our gross margins to competitors that present similar information Three Months Ended December 31, 2020 % 2019 % (dollars in thousands)Home sales revenue$284,738 100.0% $275,188 100.0%Cost of home sales242,124 85.0% 234,121 85.1%Home sales gross margin42,614 15.0% 41,067 14.9%Add: Interest in cost of home sales14,348 5.0% 22,206 8.1%Add: Inventory impairments— —% — —%Adjusted home sales gross margin excluding interest and inventory impairments (1)56,962 20.0% 63,273 23.0%Add: Purchase price accounting for acquired inventory6,024 2.1% 1,438 0.5%Adjusted home sales gross margin excluding interest, inventory impairments, and purchase price accounting for acquired inventory$62,986 22.1% $64,711 23.5% Year Ended December 31, 2020 % 2019 % (dollars in thousands)Home sales revenue$734,608 100.0% $568,872 100.0%Cost of home sales639,737 87.1% 478,054 84.0%Home sales gross margin94,871 12.9% 90,818 16.0%Add: Interest in cost of home sales37,926 5.2% 40,262 7.1%Add: Inventory impairments3,413 0.5% — —%Adjusted home sales gross margin excluding interest and inventory impairments (1)136,210 18.5% 131,080 23.0%Add: Purchase price accounting for acquired inventory15,519 2.1% 2,874 0.5%Adjusted home sales gross margin excluding interest, inventory impairments, and purchase price accounting for acquired inventory$151,729 20.7% $133,954 23.5% EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA The following table presents EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three months and years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used in evaluating operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before (i) income tax expense (benefit), (ii) interest expenses, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) inventory impairments, (v) purchase accounting adjustments for acquired work in process inventory related to business combinations, (vi) (gain) loss on debt extinguishment, (vii) transaction costs related to business combinations, and (viii) the impact of income or loss allocations from our unconsolidated joint ventures. We believe Adjusted EBITDA provides an indicator of general economic performance that is not affected by fluctuations in interest, effective tax rates, levels of depreciation and amortization, and items considered to be non-recurring. The economic activity related to our unconsolidated joint ventures is not core to our operations and is the reason we have excluded those amounts. Accordingly, we believe this measure is useful for comparing our core operating performance from period to period. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

Adjusted Net Income Adjusted Net Income to Landsea is a non-GAAP financial measure that we believe is useful to management, investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating our operating results and understanding our operating results without the effect of certain expenses that were historically pushed down by our parent company and other non-recurring items. We believe excluding these items provides a more comparable assessment of our financial results from period to period. Adjusted Net Income to Landsea is calculated by excluding the effects of related party interest that was pushed down by our parent company, purchase accounting adjustments for acquired work in process inventory related to business combinations, and the impact from our unconsolidated joint ventures, and tax-effected using a normalized effective tax rate. The economic activity related to our unconsolidated joint ventures is not core to our operations and is the reason we have excluded those amounts. We also adjust for the expense of related party interest pushed down from our parent company as we have no obligation to repay the debt and related interest.

Net Debt to Net Capital The following table presents the ratio of debt to capital as well as the ratio of net debt to net capital which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The ratio of debt to capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing total debt, net of issuance costs, by total capital (sum of total debt, net of issuance costs plus total equity). The non-GAAP ratio of net debt to net capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing net debt (which is total debt, net of issuance costs less cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash to the extent necessary to reduce the debt balance to zero) by net capital (sum of net debt plus total equity). The most comparable GAAP financial measure is the ratio of debt to capital. We believe the ratio of net debt to net capital is a relevant financial measure for investors to understand the leverage employed in our operations and as an indicator of our ability to obtain financing. We believe that by deducting our cash from our debt, we provide a measure of our indebtedness that takes into account our cash liquidity. We believe this provides useful information as the ratio of debt to capital does not take into account our liquidity and we believe that the ratio of net debt to net capital provides supplemental information by which our financial position may be considered. Investors may also find this to be helpful when comparing our leverage to the leverage of our competitors that present similar information. See table below reconciling this non-GAAP measure to the ratio of debt to capital.
