Beazer Homes Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results

May 2, 2019 at 4:15 PM EDT

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2019-- Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (NYSE: BZH) (www.beazer.com) today announced its financial results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2019.

“We had a strong second quarter of fiscal 2019, with our results surpassing our expectations across nearly every operational metric. We benefited from the decrease in mortgage rates, which has contributed to improved affordability and a more favorable demand environment,” said Allan P. Merrill, President and CEO of Beazer Homes. “At the same time, as part of our ongoing stock and debt repurchase program, we bought back an additional $7.5 million, or 652 thousand shares, of stock and retired more than $5.0 million of our outstanding Senior Notes.”

“During the quarter, we also took impairments on several of our California assets. In response to recent changes in market conditions, we concluded that it had become necessary to reduce prices in some of our active communities, all of which were previously classified as land held for future development. Additionally, after a thorough review of our California assets, we made a strategic decision to sell or activate all of the remaining assets which were still classified as land held for future development. Although these decisions led to an impairment this quarter, our actions will enable us to increase our sales pace, generate cash more quickly and redeploy this capital to more attractive investments.”

Beazer Homes Fiscal Second Quarter 2019 Highlights and Comparison to Fiscal Second Quarter 2018

  • Net loss from continuing operations of $100.8 million, compared to net income of $11.6 million in fiscal second quarter 2018
  • Excluding impairment charges and gain on debt extinguishment recognized during the quarter, net income from continuing operations was $6.2 million compared to $11.6 million in fiscal second quarter 2018
  • Impairment on certain California assets of $147.6 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $32.6 million, down 17.6%
  • Homebuilding revenue of $420.9 million, down 4.6%, on a 10.4% decrease in home closings to 1,134 and a 6.5% increase in average selling price to $371.2 thousand
  • Homebuilding gross margin excluding impairments and abandonments was 15.4%, down 150 basis points. Excluding impairments, abandonments and amortized interest, homebuilding gross margin was 19.8%, also down 150 basis points
  • SG&A as a percentage of total revenue was 12.7%, down 10 basis points
  • Unit orders of 1,598, down 4.8% on a 12.0% decrease in sales/community/month to 3.3 and an 8.2% increase in average community count to 163
  • Dollar value of backlog of $783.3 million, down 11.5%
  • Unrestricted cash at quarter end was $86.4 million
  • Repurchases of 652.2 thousand shares of common stock for $7.5 million
  • Repurchases of $5.1 million of Senior Notes

Profitability. Net loss from continuing operations was $100.8 million, including an impairment charge of $147.6 million on select California assets, as discussed above. After adjusting for impairment charges and gain on debt extinguishment taken during the quarter, the Company generated net income from continuing operations of $6.2 million. Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $32.6 million was down $6.9 million, or 17.6%, compared to the same period last year.

Impairments. Of the total impairments during the quarter, $109.0 million related to 9 formerly land held for future development communities that are currently generating sales or are under development in Southern California and reflected the deterioration in conditions that occurred in their respective markets. Concurrently, the Company performed a strategic review of its remaining land held for future development assets in California and now plans to sell all of these parcels. As a result, land held for sale impairment charges totaling $38.6 million were recognized on 6 of these communities. The Company no longer has any land held for future development assets in California.

Orders. Net new orders for the second quarter decreased 4.8% from the prior year period, to 1,598. The drop in net new orders was driven by a decrease in the absorption rate to 3.3 sales per community per month, down from 3.7 the previous year, but equal to the Company’s average second quarter absorption rate over the previous five years. The cancellation rate for the quarter was 14.5%, down 40 basis points year-over-year and was the lowest recorded in the past five years in any quarter.

Homebuilding Revenue. Second quarter home closings of 1,134 homes were down 10.4% from the same period last year. This was partially offset by a 6.5% increase in the average selling price to $371.2 thousand, leading to homebuilding revenue of $420.9 million, down 4.6% from the prior year period.

Backlog. The dollar value of homes in backlog as of March 31, 2019 decreased 11.5% to $783.3 million, or 1,989 homes, which compared to $885.4 million, or 2,312 homes, at the same time last year. The average selling price of homes in backlog rose 2.8% year over year to $393.8 thousand.

Homebuilding Gross Margin. Homebuilding gross margin (excluding impairments, abandonments and amortized interest) was 19.8% for the second quarter, down 150 basis points from the same period in fiscal 2018. The reduction in gross margin reflected the Company's efforts to respond to weak demand in the first quarter. Gross margin benefited from approximately 60 bps of construction reimbursements and other benefits that we do not expect to recur in the near term.

SG&A Expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of total revenue, were 12.7% for the quarter, an improvement of 10 basis points compared to the prior year period.

Liquidity. At the close of the second quarter, the Company had approximately $221.4 million of available liquidity, including $86.4 million of unrestricted cash and $135.0 million available on its secured revolving credit facility after accounting for borrowings.

Capital Allocation Update. Earlier this fiscal year, the Company announced its Board of Directors had authorized the repurchase of up to $50.0 million of common stock. As part of this program, the Company repurchased $7.5 million of its common stock during the second quarter, bringing the total year-to-date repurchases to $24.0 million. Further, the Company repurchased $5.1 million of debt during the second quarter. In line with its commitment to repurchase debt in excess of its share repurchases by the end of the current fiscal year, the Company plans to retire at least $25.0 million or more in debt, plus additional amounts based on future share repurchases, during the second half of fiscal 2019.

Gatherings.

The Company continued the rollout of its Gatherings active-adult communities during the second quarter of fiscal 2019 as Dallas' Gatherings at Mercer Crossing began construction on its second building, with its first building scheduled to be completed in April. Subsequent to the end of the second fiscal quarter, the Company approved two new communities in Charleston and Maryland. In addition, the Company now has ongoing Gatherings activity in Houston, Orlando, Dallas, and Nashville.

Reconciliation of homebuilding gross profit and the related gross margin before impairments and abandonments and interest amortized to cost of sales to homebuilding gross (loss) 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 (loss) income, 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 (loss) income determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of operating performance.
