Beazer Homes Reports Strong Fourth Quarter and Full Fiscal 2019 Results

ATLANTA--()--Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (NYSE: BZH) (www.beazer.com) today announced its financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2019.

“We finished fiscal 2019 with a strong fourth quarter, positioning us for growth in revenue, profitability and returns in the coming year,” said Allan P. Merrill, Chairman and CEO of Beazer Homes. “Operational improvements in sales pace, community count and gross margins reflected the decisive actions we took to combat challenging market conditions in the first and second quarters. We also made improvements to our balance sheet during the year. We returned nearly $90 million to investors and accessed the capital markets, which allowed us to reduce debt, cut interest expense significantly, extend maturities, and buy back approximately 10% of our outstanding shares at prices well below book value.”

“Looking forward, we believe these operational and capital structure improvements will accelerate our progress toward our multi-year balanced growth objectives, which include achieving double digit returns on our assets and reducing debt below $1 billion.”

The following provides additional details on the Company's performance during the fiscal fourth quarter 2019:

Orders. Net new orders for the fourth quarter increased 11.7% from the prior year, to 1,458, exceeding our expectations as a result of healthy demand. The increase in net new orders was driven by a 3.7% increase in average community count to 168. The cancellation rate for the quarter was 16.3%, down 520 basis points from the previous year.

Backlog. The dollar value of homes in backlog as of September 30, 2019 increased 5.9% to $665.1 million, or 1,708 homes, compared to $628.0 million, or 1,632 homes, at the same time last year. The average selling price of homes in backlog was $389.4 thousand, up 1.2% year over year.

Homebuilding Revenue. Fourth quarter homebuilding revenue was $773.0 million, up 1.5% from the same period last year. The average selling price rose 3.0% to $383.8 thousand, offset by an 1.5% decrease in home closings to 2,014 homes.

Homebuilding Gross Margin. Homebuilding gross margin (excluding impairments, abandonments and amortized interest) was 19.9% for the fourth quarter, ahead of our expectations by about half a point and down 170 basis points from the same period in fiscal 2018. The decline in year-over-year gross margin is attributed to the softening of demand for new homes in many of our markets during the first half of FY 2019.

SG&A Expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total revenue, were 9.5% for the quarter, down 60 basis points compared to the prior year. On an absolute dollar basis, SG&A was down $3.4 million year over year.

Profitability. Net income from continuing operations was $2.5 million, generating diluted earnings per share of $0.08. Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA of $82.1 million was down $8.0 million compared to the same period last year.

Liquidity. At the close of the fourth quarter, the Company had $356.7 million of available liquidity, including $106.7 million of unrestricted cash and $250.0 million available on its secured revolving credit facility.

Share and Debt Repurchases. The Company retired $23.7 million of its outstanding 7.250% unsecured Senior Notes due 2023 at an average price of $102.417 per $100 principal amount and $6.0 million of its outstanding 5.875% unsecured Senior Notes due 2027 at an average price of $92.250 per $100 principal amount. For fiscal 2019, the Company repurchased $51.3 million of unsecured Senior Notes and $34.6 million of stock. These successful repurchases drove the achievement of our capital allocation goals for fiscal 2019.

Changes in Capital Structure. In September 2019, the Company issued $350.0 million of 7.250% unsecured Senior Notes due 2029 and entered into an unsecured term loan agreement for $150.0 million. The proceeds from the issuance, combined with the principal amount from the term loan and cash on the balance sheet, were used to redeem all $500.0 million of the outstanding 8.750% unsecured Senior Notes due 2022. In addition, the Company executed a Seventh Amendment to the Secured Revolving Credit Facility, which extended the termination date from February 2021 to February 2022 and increased the maximum aggregate amount of commitments from $210.0 million to $250.0 million. These transactions extended our access to liquidity, reduced cash interest expense by approximately $15.0 million annually, and extended our next significant debt maturity to 2025.

Gatherings

The final quarter of fiscal 2019 represented another step forward for our Gatherings business. Fiscal year-over-year, Gatherings experienced an increase in sales in both actively selling communities located in Orlando and Dallas. New communities are under development in Nashville, Houston, Atlanta, and in Dallas, positioning Gatherings for continued growth in fiscal 2020.

Merrill Appointed Chairman; Provencio Appointed Lead Director

As the Company announced in August, Stephen Zelnak, the Company’s current Chairman, will be retiring at the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders, scheduled for early February 2020. In connection with Mr. Zelnak’s retirement, the Company’s Board of Directors has appointed Allan P. Merrill, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, to serve as Chairman of the Board, and Norma A. Provencio, an independent director, to serve as Lead Director.

“Allan’s and Norma’s appointments are part of a comprehensive, long-term succession plan that helps ensure the Board continues to have the broad expertise and perspective needed to govern our business and constructively engage with senior management and stakeholders,” said Mr. Zelnak. “We believe Allan and Norma are the right people to lead the next phase of the Company’s balanced growth strategy - they are extraordinary and capable leaders who have the experience, qualities, and skills necessary for their important new roles, and I wish them all the best in the years ahead.”

Summary results for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2019 are as follows:

Reconciliation of homebuilding gross profit and the related gross margin before impairments and abandonments and interest amortized to cost of sales to homebuilding gross profit and gross margin, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided for each period discussed below. Management believes that this information assists investors in comparing the operating characteristics of homebuilding activities by eliminating many of the differences in companies' respective level of impairments and level of debt.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to total company net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided for each period discussed below. 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, tax position and level of impairments. These EBITDA measures should not be considered alternatives to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of operating performance.
