ALISO VIEJO, Calif--()--The New Home Company Inc. (NYSE: NWHM) today announced results for the 2017 first quarter.

First Quarter 2017 Highlights Compared to First Quarter 2016

  • Net income of $0.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share vs. a net loss of $0.8 million, or $(0.04) per diluted share
  • Total revenues of $125.0 million vs. $85.2 million, a 47% increase
  • Home sales revenue of $69.4 million, a 64% increase
  • Net new home orders up 125%
  • Backlog dollar value up 34% to $313.9 million, a record quarter-end value
  • Wholly owned community count up 40% to 14 vs. 10

“I am extremely pleased with our first quarter results,” said The New Home Company’s Chief Executive Officer Larry Webb. “Both revenues and profits came in ahead of our projections, resulting in earnings per diluted share of $0.04 for the quarter. Orders for our wholly owned business increased 125% on a year-over-year basis thanks to strong contributions from both our Northern and Southern California operations. The demand we saw in the first quarter is further evidence that California continues to be one of the strongest housing markets in the country. The state’s track record of creating good paying jobs and its ongoing lack of available supply have created a significant need for new housing in a number of markets.”

Mr. Webb continued, “The value of our backlog at the end of the quarter was $314 million, up 34% from last year, and represented the highest quarter-end backlog total in our company’s history. The company also improved its financial position and liquidity through the issuance of $250 million senior unsecured notes due 2022.”

Mr. Webb concluded, “The strong start to the year positions us well towards achieving our full year financial goals. As we broaden our product portfolio to include more affordable price points, The New Home Company is in a solid position to take advantage of industry demand trends for the benefit of our homebuyers and shareholders alike.”

First Quarter 2017 Operating Results

Total revenues for the 2017 first quarter were $125.0 million, compared to $85.2 million in the prior year period. Net income attributable to the Company was $0.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million, or $(0.04) per diluted share, in the prior year period. The year-over-year increase in net income was primarily attributable to a 47% increase in total revenues, a 20 basis point improvement in home sales gross margin, and a 600 basis point improvement in selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses as a percentage of home sales revenue, due to stronger operating leverage from growth in our wholly owned operations. These improvements were partially offset by a 170 basis point reduction in fee building gross margin percentage.

Wholly Owned Projects

Home sales revenue for the 2017 first quarter increased 64% to $69.4 million, compared to $42.3 million in the prior year period. The increase in home sales revenue was driven primarily by a 93% increase in deliveries, which was partially offset by a 15% decrease in the average selling price of homes delivered to $1.3 million. The decrease in our average selling price was primarily due to a mix shift, including an increase in the number of deliveries from lower-priced Southern California communities.

Gross margin from homes sales was 13.5% versus 13.3% in the prior year period. The increase in home sales gross margin as compared to the prior year was primarily due to a change in mix, including the favorable impact of higher margins from communities located in Newport Coast, CA. Adjusted gross margin from home sales for the 2017 first quarter, which excludes interest in cost of home sales was 15.7%* compared to 14.8%*.

Our SG&A expense ratio as a percentage of home sales revenue was 14.5% versus 20.5% in the prior year period. The 600 basis point improvement in the SG&A rate was largely attributable to a 64% increase in home sales revenue, which was driven by a significant increase in new home deliveries due to growth in our wholly owned operations, and leverage of our G&A expenses.

Net new home orders were up 125% to 126 homes, compared to 56 homes in the prior year period. The Company's monthly sales absorption pace was up significantly to 2.8 sales per average selling community compared to 1.8 in the prior year period. Selling communities were up 40% over the prior year, ending the 2017 first quarter with 14 communities compared to 10 as of the end of the prior year period.

The dollar value of the Company's wholly owned backlog at the end of the 2017 first quarter was up 34% year-over-year to $313.9 million and totaled 151 homes, compared to $234.0 million and 104 homes in the prior year period. The increase in backlog dollar value primarily related to the increase in net new home orders.

Fee Building Projects

Fee building revenue for the 2017 first quarter increased 30% to $55.6 million primarily due to an increase in fee building construction activity. Fee building gross margin was $1.7 million, or 3.0%, compared to $2.0 million, or 4.7%, in the prior year period. The reduction in fee building gross margin percentage was largely due to a decrease in management fees received from joint ventures, which were $1.2 million during the 2017 first quarter compared to $2.2 million in the prior year period. The decrease in management fees from JVs was primarily the result of fewer deliveries and lower revenues from JV communities, which is consistent with the Company’s strategic shift to emphasize wholly owned operations.

Unconsolidated Joint Ventures (JVs)

The Company’s share of joint venture income for the 2017 first quarter was $0.3 million, compared to a $7,000 loss in the prior year period. The following sets forth supplemental information about the Company’s JVs. Such information is not included in the Company’s financial data for GAAP purposes but is provided for informational purposes.

Total revenue of the JVs was $26.6 million and net loss was $(0.9) million, compared to $42.0 million and $2.1 million in income in the prior year period, respectively. Home sales revenue of the JVs was $25.1 million, compared to $38.2 million in the prior year period.

At the end of the 2017 first quarter, the JVs had nine active selling communities, up from six at the end of the prior year period. Net new home orders from JVs for the 2017 first quarter decreased 15% to 39 homes as compared to 46 homes in the prior year period. The dollar value of homes in backlog from unconsolidated JVs at the end of the 2017 first quarter was $64.0 million from 69 homes, compared to $94.7 million from 101 homes in the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

On March 17, 2017, the Company completed the sale of $250 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.25% Senior Notes due 2022. Proceeds from the notes were used to repay the outstanding balance under the Company's revolving credit facility, with the balance to be used for general corporate purposes. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had real estate inventories totaling $322.0 million, of which $192.4 million represented work-in-process and completed homes (including models), $87.1 million in land and land under development, and $42.5 million in land deposits and pre-acquisition costs. The Company owned or controlled 1,670 lots through its wholly owned operations (excluding fee building and joint venture lots), of which 1,036 lots, or 62%, were controlled or under option. The Company ended the 2017 first quarter with $110.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and had no borrowings outstanding under its $260.0 million revolving credit facility. The Company ended the 2017 first quarter with $241.7 million in debt outstanding (net of unamortized discount and debt issuance costs), a debt-to-capital ratio of 49.6% and a net debt-to-capital ratio of 34.9%*.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Unaudited)

In this earnings release, we utilize certain 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 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.

The following table reconciles homebuilding gross margin percentage as reported and prepared in accordance with GAAP, to the non-GAAP measure adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage. We believe this information is meaningful, as it isolates the impact leverage has on homebuilding gross margin and provides investors better comparisons with our competitors, who adjust gross margins in a similar fashion.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin percentage and the ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to total interest incurred are non-GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA means net income (loss) (plus cash distributions of income from unconsolidated joint ventures) before (a) income taxes, (b) interest expense, (c) amortization of previously capitalized interest included in cost of sales or other expense, (d) non-cash impairment charges and abandoned project costs, (e) gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, (f) depreciation and amortization, (g) amortization of equity-based compensation and (h) income (loss) from unconsolidated joint ventures. Adjusted EBITDA margin percentage is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total revenue for a given period. The ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to total interest incurred is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total interest incurred for a given period. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA assists investors in understanding and comparing the operating characteristics of homebuilding activities by eliminating many of the differences in companies' respective capitalization, interest costs, tax position and level of impairments. Due to the significance of the GAAP components excluded, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operations or any other performance measure prescribed by GAAP. A reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to us to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin percentage and the ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to total interest incurred is provided in the following table.

The following table reconciles the Company’s ratio of debt-to-capital to the non-GAAP ratio of net debt-to-capital. We believe that the ratio of net debt-to-capital is a relevant financial measure for management and investors to understand the leverage employed in our operations and as an indicator of the Company’s ability to obtain financing.

Total debt, net $ 241,738 $ 118,000
Equity, exclusive of noncontrolling interest 245,415   244,523  
Total capital $ 487,153   $ 362,523  
Ratio of debt-to-capital(1) 49.6 % 32.5 %
 
Total debt, net $ 241,738 $ 118,000
Less: cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash 110,322   31,081

Ratio of net debt-to-capital(2) 34.9 % 26.2 %
 
(1)     The ratio of debt-to-capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing total debt, net by the sum of total debt plus equity, exclusive of noncontrolling interest.
(2) The ratio of net debt-to-capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing net debt (which is total debt, net less cash to the extent necessary to reduce the debt balance to zero) by total capital, exclusive of noncontrolling interest. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is the ratio of debt-to-capital. We believe the ratio of net debt-to-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 notes payable, 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 net of cash 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 the table above reconciling this non-GAAP financial measure to the ratio of debt-to-capital.
