Greenwood Village, Colorado (May 2, 2019) – Century Communities, Inc. (NYSE: CCS), a leading national homebuilder, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

First Quarter 2019 Highlights Compared to First Quarter 2018

·

Adjusted net income of $18.4 million, or $0.60 per diluted share and net income of $17.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share

·

Home sales revenues increased 33% to $523.3 million

·

Selling, general & administrative expense (“SG&A”) as a percent of home sales revenues improved by 110 basis points to 13.2%

·

Home deliveries grew 77% to 1,663 homes

·

Net new home contracts increased 35% to a record 1,858 homes

·

Homes in backlog improved 35% to 2,376 homes

·

Adjusted EBITDA of $40.4 million



Dale Francescon, Co-Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The first quarter ended significantly stronger than it started, where we experienced an overall stabilization in demand trends and better affordability, compared to relatively muted buyer activity in the latter half of 2018 which continued into the beginning of this year.  Our focus remains on deepening our platform and driving additional operational efficiencies. Our concentration in markets with sound economic fundamentals combined with our lower price point product offerings throughout our business well positions us to deliver further earnings growth and generate enhanced returns for our stockholders.”



Rob Francescon, Co-Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are encouraged by the pick-up in buyer activity in recent months which allowed us to end the quarter with a record number of net new contracts.  Our continued expansion of Wade Jurney Homes’ asset-light, lower price point operations into new geographies should contribute more meaningfully to earnings as we progress through the year. We view our significant focus on entry level buyers as a catalyst for ongoing success in the quarters to come as our national platform and expanded scale allows us to continue to drive enhancements and efficiencies throughout our business.”



First Quarter 2019 Results

Home sales revenues for the first quarter 2019 increased 33% to $523.3 million, compared to $394.8 million for the prior year quarter. The growth in home sales revenues was primarily attributable to a 77% increase in home deliveries to 1,663 homes compared to 941 homes for the prior year quarter, partly attributable to the acquisition of Wade Jurney Homes. Excluding the impact from the acquisition, deliveries from the Century Communities branded business increased 13% year over year. Average sales price of home deliveries for the first quarter 2019 was $314,700, compared to $419,600 in the prior year quarter, consistent with the Company’s expansion of its offering of entry level homes.


 

Net new home contracts in the first quarter 2019 increased 35% to a record 1,858 homes, compared to 1,377 homes in the prior year quarter, attributable to the addition of Wade Jurney Homes. At the end of the first quarter 2019, the Company had 2,376 homes in backlog, an increase of 35% compared to 1,757 homes in backlog in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted net income for the first quarter was $18.4 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, as compared to $22.5 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income excludes the impact of one-time items associated with homebuilder acquisitions. Net income for the first quarter 2019 was $17.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share as compared to $20.0 million or $0.67 per diluted share for the prior year quarter.

Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage, excluding interest and purchase price accounting, was 19.8% in the first quarter 2019, as compared to 23.2% in the prior year quarter, which benefitted from a  particularly favorable product mix. Homebuilding gross margin percentage in the first quarter 2019 was 17.1%, as compared to 19.1% in the prior year quarter, largely attributable to higher incentives and product mix.  SG&A as a percent of home sales revenues improved to 13.2%, compared to 14.3% in the prior year quarter, due to process enhancements, tight cost controls, and benefits generated by our larger scale.

Financial services generated pre-tax income of $1.6 million in the first quarter 2019 as compared to $1.2 million in the prior year quarter. 



Balance Sheet and Liquidity



As of March 31, 2019, the Company had total assets of $2.3 billion, including cash of $62.8 million and inventories of $1.9 billion. Liabilities totaled $1.4 billion, which included $1.1 billion of long-term debt. As of March 31, 2019, the Company had $353.0 million of availability under its credit facility.



Full Year 2019 Outlook



David Messenger, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, commented, “We are optimistic on the prospects for continued growth in our overall business and long-term housing fundamentals. Given better visibility across our footprint during the first quarter 2019, we introduce our full year outlook for home deliveries to be in the range of 7,000 to 8,000 homes and our home sales revenues to be in the range of $2.2 billion to $2.5 billion.”

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 the Company’s financial information in evaluating its operating results and understanding its operating trends without the effect of certain non-recurring items. The Company believes excluding certain non-recurring items provides more comparable assessment of its 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 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was our GAAP tax rate of 25.6%. For the three months ended March 31, 2018 the tax rate utilized was 26.5% which is reflective of the Company’s GAAP tax rate for the applicable period adjusted for certain discrete items.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(Unaudited)



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. The Company defines 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. The Company believes 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, the Company’s 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. The Company’s presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA is limited as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.

Ratio of Net Homebuilding Debt to Net Capital

The following table presents the Company’s ratio of net homebuilding debt to net capital, which is a non-GAAP financial measure.  The Company calculates this by dividing net homebuilding debt (senior notes payable and revolving line of credit less cash held in escrow and cash and cash equivalents) by net capital (net homebuilding 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 homebuilding 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.
