  • Adjusted net income of $28.8 million or $1.01 per diluted share excluding the one-time charges related to the impact of remeasurement of deferred tax amounts and homebuilding acquisitions, an increase of 90%, and net income of $17.2 million, or $0.60 per diluted share

  • Home sales revenues increased 77% to a record $516.5 million
  • Deliveries grew 62% to a record 1,311 homes
  • Backlog value increased 89% to $572.9 million
  • Backlog improved 76% to 1,320 homes
  • Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage increased 30 basis points to 21.7%
  • Adjusted EBITDA improved 90% to $58.6 million
  • Completed the bolt-on acquisition of the assets of Sundquist Homes (“Sundquist”), strengthening the Company’s presence and enhancing operating efficiencies in the Seattle, Washington market

Dale Francescon, Co-Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “2017 represented the most exciting year in the history of the Company. We dramatically expanded our geographical footprint as a result of the UCP acquisition while experiencing sustained improvement across the entire Century platform, including new and legacy markets. This progress resulted in a record year of home sales revenues and earnings to produce our 15th consecutive year of profitability. During the fourth quarter of 2017, our team’s superior performance allowed us to meaningfully increase growth in net new home contracts and deliveries by over 60% year-over-year. This solid operating momentum combined with our stable margin performance demonstrates our ability to successfully execute the goals of our dynamic growth strategy. As we move forward in 2018, we anticipate another year of record results fueled by our solid pipeline of new communities and strategic investments which should further enhance our returns on equity.”

“During 2017, we continued to improve our backlog quantity and quality and strengthen our balance sheet,” said Rob Francescon, Co-Chief Executive Officer of the Company. “So far in 2018, the buyer traffic and overall market dynamics in our West, Mountain, Texas and Southeast regions are encouraging, with our newly acquired operations in California and Washington having already positively impacted our results. Additionally, our joint venture and financing divisions have each surpassed our expectations, contributing cumulative pretax income in excess of $13 million during 2017 and meaningful returns on investment. With our planned community openings, strong backlog, and recent acquisitions of leading homebuilders in attractive markets, we are well positioned to continue this positive momentum into 2018 and beyond.”

Fourth Quarter 2017 Results

Net income for the fourth quarter 2017 was $17.2 million, or $0.60 per share. Excluding the impact of one-time charges associated with the remeasurement of our net deferred tax assets and our homebuilder acquisitions, adjusted net income for the fourth quarter increased 90% to a record $28.8 million, or $1.01 per share, as compared to $15.1 million, or $0.71 per share, for the prior year quarter.

Home sales revenues and deliveries were at record levels for the Company for the fourth quarter 2017. Home sales revenues for the fourth quarter 2017 increased 77% to $516.5 million, compared to $292.4 million for the prior year quarter. The growth in home sales revenues was primarily due to a 62% increase in deliveries to 1,311 homes compared to 812 homes for the prior year quarter, and a higher average sales price of home deliveries of $394,000, compared to $360,100 in the prior year quarter. Deliveries and average sales price of home deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2017 were both favorably impacted, primarily in the West, by the acquisitions of UCP and Sundquist. Excluding the West, the Company’s legacy regions experienced growth in revenue and deliveries of 22% and 31%, respectively.

Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage, excluding interest and purchase price accounting, was 21.7% in the fourth quarter 2017, as compared to 21.0% in the third quarter and 21.4% in the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of favorable product and geographical mix. Homebuilding gross margin percentage in the fourth quarter 2017 was 17.6%, as compared to 19.2% in the prior year quarter, with approximately half of the difference attributable to the impact of purchase price accounting in the fourth quarter 2017. SG&A as a percent of home sales revenues was 12.1%, compared 11.9% in the prior year quarter, largely attributable to numerous investment initiatives to support growth objectives in 2018.

Net new home contracts in the fourth quarter 2017 increased to 922 homes, representing an increase of 62%, compared to 569 homes in the prior year quarter, attributable to the addition of the new West region and stronger demand trends in all legacy regions driving an overall increase in absorption rates. Excluding the West, the Company’s legacy regions experienced a 30% increase in net new home contracts. At the end of the fourth quarter 2017, the Company had 1,320 homes in backlog, representing $572.9 million of backlog dollar value, compared to 749 homes in backlog, representing $302.8 million of backlog dollar value in the prior year quarter, an increase of 76% in units and 89% in dollar value.

Financial services revenue was $5.2 million in the fourth quarter 2017 and financial services costs were $4.0 million. Equity in income of unconsolidated subsidiaries was $4.5 million, compared to $0.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Full Year 2017 Results

Net income for the full year 2017 was $50.3 million, or $2.03 per share. Adjusted net income increased 42% to a record $71.1 million, or $2.87 per share, compared to $50.1 million, or $2.36 per share, for the prior year.

Home sales revenues for 2017 increased 44% to $1.4 billion, compared to $978.7 million for 2016. The increase in home sales revenues was primarily due to home deliveries increasing 29% to 3,640 homes and the average selling price of homes delivered increasing to $386,100 compared to $346,500 in the prior year, helped by a shift in regional and product mix.

Homebuilding gross margin percentage in 2017 was 17.9%, compared to 19.7% in 2016. Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage, excluding purchase price accounting and interest in cost of home sales revenues, was 21.4% compared to 21.7% in the prior year. SG&A as a percent of home sales revenues remained constant at 12.5% compared to the prior year, with tight cost controls offsetting numerous investment initiatives to support growth objectives in 2018.

Net new home contracts in 2017 increased to 3,814 homes, an increase of 33%, compared to 2,860 homes in the prior year, largely attributable to increased demand, additional open communities and acquisitions.

At the end of full year 2017, the Company had 119 open communities, an increase of 34%, compared to 89 open communities at the end of the prior year.

Financial services revenue was $9.9 million for the full year 2017 and financial services costs were $8.7 million. Equity in income of unconsolidated subsidiaries was $12.2 million, compared to $0.2 million in the prior year.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2017, the Company had the full $400.0 million of availability under its credit facility.

During the full year of 2017, in addition to shares issued in connection with the UCP business combination, the Company issued 3.7 million shares of its common stock under its ATM Program for proceeds of $98.9 million, or $27.31 per share.

Full Year 2018 Outlook

David Messenger, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, commented, “We are encouraged by the strong activity in our communities during 2017 and the potential for continued success in 2018. Based on our current market outlook, we expect home deliveries to be in the range of 4,500 to 5,000 homes and our home sales revenues to be in the range of $1.75 billion to $2.0 billion. We expect our active selling community count to be in the range of 130 to 140 communities at the end of the full year 2018. With the benefit of recent U.S. tax reform, we expect to incur an income tax rate of approximately 25% in 2018.”

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share (Adjusted Diluted EPS) is a non-GAAP financial measure that we believe is useful to management, investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating our operating results and understanding our operating trends without the effect of certain non-recurring items. We believe excluding certain non-recurring items provides more comparable assessment of our financial results from period to period. Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated by excluding the effect of acquisition costs and purchase price accounting for acquired work in process from the calculation of reported EPS.

  The tax rate used in calculating adjusted net income was 35.2% for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017. The tax rate used is reflective of our GAAP tax rate for the applicable periods adjusted for certain acquisition costs which are not deductible for tax and the remeasurement of our deferred tax assets as a result of the tax cuts and Jobs Act which was signed into law on December 22, 2017. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2016, our GAAP tax rate was utilized.
 

Adjusted homebuilding gross margin excluding interest and purchase price accounting for acquired work in process inventory is not a measurement of financial performance under United States generally accepted accounting principles; however, the Company’s management believes that this information is meaningful as it isolates the impact that indebtedness and acquisitions have on homebuilding gross margin and permits the Company’s stockholders to make better comparisons with the Company’s competitors, who adjust gross margins in a similar fashion. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be used as a substitute for the Company’s operating results. An analysis of any non-GAAP financial measure should be used in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure we use as a supplemental measure in evaluating operating performance. We define adjusted EBITDA as consolidated net income before (i) income tax expense, (ii) interest in cost of home sales revenues, (iii) other interest expense, (iv) depreciation and amortization expense, and (v) adjustments resulting from the application of purchase accounting for acquired work in process inventory related to business combinations. We believe adjusted EBITDA provides an indicator of general economic performance that is not affected by fluctuations in interest rates or effective tax rates, levels of depreciation or amortization, and items considered to be non-recurring. Accordingly, our management believes that this measurement is useful for comparing general operating performance from period to period. Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, consolidated net income in accordance with GAAP as a measure of performance. Our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Our adjusted EBITDA is limited as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Net Debt to Net Capital

The following table presents our ratio of net debt to net capital, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We calculate this by dividing net debt (notes payable and revolving line of credit less cash held in escrow and cash and cash equivalents) by net capital (net debt plus total stockholders’ equity). The most directly comparable GAAP measure is the ratio of debt to capital. The Company believes the ratio of net debt to net capital is a relevant and useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in its operations and as an indicator of the Company’s ability to obtain external financing.
