MIAMI, Dec. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN and LEN.B), one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended November 30, 2023. Fourth quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2023 were $1.4 billion, or $4.82 per diluted share, compared to $1.3 billion, or $4.55 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2022. Excluding mark-to-market losses on technology investments and other one-time items, fourth quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2023 were $1.5 billion, or $5.17 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2022 of $1.5 billion, or $5.02 per diluted share. Net earnings attributable to Lennar for the year ended November 30, 2023 were $3.9 billion, or $13.73 per diluted share, compared to $4.6 billion, or $15.72 per diluted share for the year ended November 30, 2022.

Stuart Miller, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Lennar, said, “We are pleased to report another strong quarter and year end, against the backdrop of evolving, though constructive, market conditions. During our fourth quarter, the economic environment shifted as interest rates rose for most of the quarter, and then subsided. Higher interest rates tested homebuyer sentiment, although purchasers remained responsive to incentives that enabled affordability. The well documented production deficit and chronic supply shortage continued to result in housing demand outweighing short supply. These conditions remained constructive for our overall operating strategy of focusing on production and sales pace over price, generating strong cash flow, increasing returns on equity and assets, and driving a strong bottom line.”

“Earnings were $1.4 billion, or $4.82 per diluted share, compared to $1.3 billion, or $4.55 per diluted share last year. We delivered 23,795 homes in our fourth quarter, a 19% increase year over year, and our new orders were 17,366, up 32%, year over year, driven by our operating strategy of maintaining production pace in lock step with sales pace, using pricing and margin as a shock absorber. Accordingly, our homebuilding gross margin in the fourth quarter was 24.2%, reflecting the pressure from higher interest rates, and our average sales price, net of incentives, per home delivered was $441,000 in the fourth quarter, compared to almost $500,000 last year while Homebuilding S,G&A expenses were 6.6%, generating a 17.6% net margin.”

“Driven by this quarter’s and year’s strong operating performance, we continued to strengthen and fortify our balance sheet and our future. During the quarter, we repaid $488 million of debt and repurchased $337 million of our common stock, ending the quarter with homebuilding debt to total capital of 9.6%, the lowest in our history, no borrowings on our $2.6 billion revolver and cash of $6.3 billion. With cash on hand exceeding our debt, and with overall liquidity of $8.9 billion, our balance sheet has never been in a stronger position.”

Jon Jaffe, Co-Chief Executive Officer and President of Lennar, said, “Operationally, our starts in the fourth quarter were 18,378, up 43% year over year, our new orders were 17,366, up 32%, and our deliveries of 23,795 were up 19%. We are clearly moving closer to an even flow operating model as we are now expecting approximately 18,500 starts, 18,000 new orders, and 17,000 deliveries in the first quarter of 2024. We expect more consistent results through the year as our cycle time is normalizing and was down 24% year over year as the improving supply chain and labor market positively impacted our production times and our inventory turn improved to 1.5 times reflecting broader efficiencies. Concurrently, the Lennar Machine continued to carefully match sales pace using our digital marketing and dynamic pricing models to keep production pace and sales pace closely matched.”

“During the quarter, we continued the execution of our land light strategy. This was evidenced by our years supply of owned homesites improving to 1.4 years from 1.9 years and our controlled homesite percentage increasing to 76% from 69% year over year. These results drove our return on inventory to 29.4%.”

Mr. Miller concluded, “Even as the economic and interest rate environment has shifted from more restrictive to more constructive, we have remained vigilant and focused on a consistent even flow operating strategy. This strategy has positioned us particularly well as interest rates now seem more likely to moderate in 2024. We expect our strong land position and community count, along with our pace over price sales strategy, will allow us to aim for a year over year delivery growth rate of 10% in 2024. Accordingly, we expect to deliver approximately 80,000 homes for the year, with 16,500 to 17,000 homes at a gross margin of between 21.0% to 21.25% in the first quarter of 2024. We will not guide full year margin at this time, as the interest rate environment is rapidly evolving. With strengthening prospects for future performance, we will continue to drive strong cash flow to further fortify our balance sheet with significant liquidity, and will allocate capital to reduce debt as it comes due, and increase our share repurchase target to $2 billion in 2024.”

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
THREE MONTHS ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2023 COMPARED TO 
THREE MONTHS ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2022

Homebuilding

Revenues from home sales increased 8% in the fourth quarter of 2023 to $10.4 billion from $9.7 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 19% increase in the number of home deliveries, partially offset by a 9% decrease in the average sales price of homes delivered. New home deliveries increased to 23,795 homes in the fourth quarter of 2023 from 20,064 homes in the fourth quarter of 2022. The average sales price of homes delivered was $441,000 in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $483,000 in the fourth quarter of 2022. The decrease in average sales price of homes delivered in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year was primarily due to pricing to market through an increased use of incentives and product mix.

Gross margins on home sales were $2.5 billion, or 24.2%, in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $2.4 billion, or 24.8%, in the fourth quarter of 2022. During the fourth quarter of 2023, gross margins decreased because of a decrease in average sales price, which was partially offset by a decrease in costs per square foot as the Company continued to focus on construction cost savings.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $688 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $563 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to 6.6% in the fourth quarter of 2023, from 5.8% in the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily due to an increase in the use of brokers due to current market conditions.

Financial Services

Operating earnings for the Financial Services segment were $168 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to $125 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase in operating earnings was primarily due to a higher profit per locked loan in the Company’s mortgage business as a result of higher margins, and higher lock volume because of an increased capture rate and deliveries. There was also an increase in profitability from the Company’s title business due to higher volume and productivity as a result of continued implementation of technology initiatives.

Other Ancillary Businesses

Operating loss for the Multifamily segment was $12 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to operating earnings of $15 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Operating loss for the Lennar Other segment was $125 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to an operating loss of $106 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The Lennar Other operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2023 was primarily due to negative mark-to-market adjustments of $36 million on the Company’s publicly traded technology investments and a $65 million write-off of one of the Company’s non-public technology investments. The Lennar Other operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2022 was primarily due to negative mark-to-market adjustments of $96 million on the Company’s publicly traded technology investments.

Tax Rate

For the quarter ended November 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company had a tax provision of $417 million and $415 million, which resulted in an overall effective income tax rate of 23.4% and 23.9%, respectively.

OTHER TRANSACTIONS

Debt Transactions

During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company redeemed $378 million aggregate principal amount of its 4.875% senior notes due December 2023 at an early redemption price of 100% of the principal amount outstanding. Additionally, the Company repurchased $110 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due in April 2024 and November 2027.

Share Repurchases

During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company repurchased 3 million shares of its common stock for $337 million at an average per share price of $112.49.

Liquidity

At November 30, 2023, the Company had $6.3 billion of Homebuilding cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings under its $2.6 billion revolving credit facility, thereby providing $8.9 billion of available capacity.

EBIT is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as earnings before interest and taxes. This financial measure has been presented because the Company finds it important and useful in evaluating its performance and believes that it helps readers of the Company’s financial statements compare its operations with those of its competitors. Although management finds EBIT to be an important measure in conducting and evaluating the Company’s operations, this measure has limitations as an analytical tool as it is not reflective of the actual profitability generated by the Company during the period. Management compensates for the limitations of using EBIT by using this non-GAAP measure only to supplement the Company’s GAAP results. Due to the limitations discussed, EBIT should not be viewed in isolation, as it is not a substitute for GAAP measures.

Net homebuilding debt to total capital is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net homebuilding debt (homebuilding debt less homebuilding cash and cash equivalents) divided by total capital (net homebuilding debt plus stockholders’ equity). The Company believes the ratio of net homebuilding debt to total capital is a relevant and a useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in homebuilding operations. However, because net homebuilding debt to total capital is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, this financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures prescribed by GAAP. Rather, this non-GAAP financial measure should be used to supplement the Company’s GAAP results.
