Douglas C. Yearley, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer, stated: “Despite the many challenges facing our industry over the past year, we delivered record results in FY 2022, closing the year with our strongest quarterly earnings ever. In our fourth quarter, we delivered 3,765 homes, generated home sales revenues of $3.6 billion and increased earnings by 86% to $5.63 per share diluted as compared to Q4 2021. Driven by the strong pricing in our backlog, our fourth quarter adjusted gross margin was 29.0%, a 310-basis point increase compared to Q4 2021, and our fourth quarter SG&A expense, as a percentage of home sales revenues, improved by 110 basis points over Q4 2021 to 7.7%. For the year, we delivered over 10,500 homes and grew home sales revenues by 15.2%, posted an adjusted gross margin of 27.5%, decreased SG&A margin by 80 basis points and improved our return on beginning equity by 720 basis points to 24.3%. We earned a record $10.90 per share diluted and increased our book value to $54.79 per share. I am pleased with these results and proud of the extraordinary efforts of the entire Toll Brothers team.

“While FY 2022 was a year of records for our Company, the dramatic increase in mortgage rates since March presents a challenging market as we enter FY 2023. Many homebuyers are on the sidelines, waiting for clarity on the direction of mortgage rates and the overall economy. Our net signed contracts were down 60% in units and 56% in dollars in the fourth quarter, with no discernible change nearly halfway through our first quarter. Despite the softer market, FY 2023 is positioned to be another solid, high-margin year for us because of our strong backlog of 8,098 homes valued at $8.9 billion at fiscal year end. We are projecting an adjusted gross margin of 27.0% and earnings per share of $8.00 to $9.00 in FY 2023. This would increase our book value per share to above $60 at fiscal year-end 2023.

“As a primarily build-to-order home builder, we are strategically balancing the delivery of our large, high-margin backlog in FY 2023 with the generation of new sales for future deliveries. In this uncertain demand environment, our pricing strategy reflects, for each of our communities, an evaluation of local market dynamics, including elasticity of demand, the size of our backlog and the depth and quality of our land holdings in that market. We intend to continue making appropriate price adjustments as FY 2023 progresses. We also plan to grow our community count, replenish our supply of spec inventory in certain markets, and take advantage of shorter cycle times and lower building costs as trades have begun to show signs of increased capacity.

“Importantly, we have sufficient land under control to increase community count by 10% in FY 2023. We continue to assess all pending and future land transactions using rigorous underwriting standards based on current market conditions. Our balance sheet is solid, with over $3.0 billion of liquidity at fiscal year end and a net debt-to-capital ratio of 23.4%. In addition, we expect to generate significant cash flow from operations in FY 2023. This should enable us to continue reducing debt and returning cash to stockholders throughout the year.

“We believe the long-term prospects for the housing market remain positive despite recent weakness. Demographic and migration trends continue in our favor. In addition, there continues to be a substantial shortage of homes in America as housing starts have not kept up with population growth for at least the past 15 years. We believe these fundamental drivers will support the housing market well into the future.”

Toll Brothers operates in following five geographic segments, with current operations generally located in the states listed below:

  • North: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania
  • Mid-Atlantic: Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia
  • South: Florida, South Carolina and Texas
  • Mountain: Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and Utah
  • Pacific: California, Oregon and Washington

At October 31, 2022, the Company concluded that its City Living operations no longer met the definition of an operating segment, primarily due to the change in structure and a shift in strategy for its operations. Therefore, the Company concluded it has five operating segments as reflected above. Amounts reported in prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the fiscal 2022 presentation. The realignment did not have any impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations, earnings per share or cash flows for the periods presented.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

This press release contains, and Company management’s discussion of the results presented in this press release may include, information about the Company’s adjusted home sales gross margin and the Company’s net debt-to-capital ratio.

These two measures are non-GAAP financial measures which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the comparable GAAP financial measures, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies in the home building business.

The Company’s management considers these non-GAAP financial measures as we make operating and strategic decisions and evaluate our performance, including against other home builders that may use similar non-GAAP financial measures. The Company’s management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in understanding our operations and leverage and may be helpful in comparing the Company to other home builders to the extent they provide similar information.

Adjusted Home Sales Gross Margin
The following table reconciles the Company’s home sales gross margin as a percentage of home sales revenues (calculated in accordance with GAAP) to the Company’s adjusted home sales gross margin (a non-GAAP financial measure). Adjusted home sales gross margin is calculated as (i) home sales gross margin plus interest recognized in home sales cost of revenues plus inventory write-downs recognized in home sales cost of revenues divided by (ii) home sales revenues.

Adjusted home sales gross margin as a percentage of home sale revenues 29.0%  25.9%  27.5%  25.0%
                

The Company’s management believes adjusted home sales gross margin is a useful financial measure to investors because it allows them to evaluate the performance of our home building operations without the often varying effects of capitalized interest costs and inventory impairments. The use of adjusted home sales gross margin also assists the Company’s management in assessing the profitability of our home building operations and making strategic decisions regarding community location and product mix.

Forward-looking Adjusted Home Sales Gross Margin
The Company has not provided projected first quarter and full FY 2023 home sales gross margin or a GAAP reconciliation for forward-looking adjusted home sales gross margin because such measure cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis, since inventory write-downs are based on future activity and observation and therefore cannot be projected for the first quarter and full FY 2023. The variability of these charges may have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our first quarter and full FY 2023 home sales gross margin.

Net Debt-to-Capital Ratio
The following table reconciles the Company’s ratio of debt to capital (calculated in accordance with GAAP) to the Company’s net debt-to-capital ratio (a non-GAAP financial measure). The net debt-to-capital ratio is calculated as (i) total debt minus mortgage warehouse loans minus cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) total debt minus mortgage warehouse loans minus cash and cash equivalents plus stockholders’ equity.

The Company’s management uses the net debt-to-capital ratio as an indicator of its overall leverage and believes it is a useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in the Company’s operations.
