At March 31, 2021, the Company had 46,100 homes in inventory, of which 12,200 were unsold. 700 of the Company’s unsold homes at March 31, 2021 were completed.

The Company’s return on equity (ROE) was 27.1% for the trailing twelve months ended March 31, 2021, and homebuilding return on inventory (ROI) was 31.2% for the same period. ROE is calculated as net income attributable to D.R.

Homebuilding ROI is calculated as homebuilding pre-tax income for the trailing twelve months divided by average inventory, where average inventory is the sum of ending homebuilding inventory balances for the trailing five quarters divided by five.

The Company ended the second quarter with $1.9 billion of unrestricted homebuilding cash and $1.8 billion of available capacity on its revolving credit facilities for total homebuilding liquidity of $3.7 billion. Homebuilding debt at March 31, 2021 totaled $2.6 billion. The Company’s homebuilding debt to total capital ratio at March 31, 2021 was 16.8%. Homebuilding debt to total capital consists of homebuilding notes payable divided by stockholders’ equity plus homebuilding notes payable. Subsequent to quarter-end, the Company’s senior unsecured homebuilding revolving credit facility was amended to extend its maturity date to April 20, 2026. The capacity of the homebuilding revolving credit facility was increased to $2.19 billion with an uncommitted accordion feature that could increase the size of the facility to $3.0 billion, subject to certain conditions and availability of additional bank commitments.

Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, “The D.R. Horton team delivered strong results in the second fiscal quarter of 2021, highlighted by EPS increasing 95% to $2.53 per diluted share. Our consolidated pre-tax income increased 90% to $1.2 billion on a 43% increase in revenues to $6.4 billion and a 450 basis point increase in our pre-tax profit margin to 18.3%. Our net sales orders increased 35% to 27,059 homes, while our homes in inventory increased 38% to 46,100 homes. These results reflect our experienced teams and production capabilities, industry-leading market share, broad geographic footprint and diverse product offerings across multiple brands.

“Housing market conditions remain very robust, and we are focused on maximizing returns and improving capital efficiency in each of our communities while increasing our market share. Our strong balance sheet, liquidity and low leverage provide us with significant financial flexibility. We plan to maintain our disciplined approach to investing capital to enhance the long-term value of our company, including returning capital to our shareholders through both dividends and share repurchases on a consistent basis.”

COVID-19

During March 2020, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic (C-19) and the related widespread reductions in economic activity across the United States began to adversely affect the Company’s business. However, residential construction and financial services are designated as essential businesses as part of critical infrastructure in almost all of the municipalities across the U.S. where the Company operates. The Company implemented operational protocols to comply with social distancing and other health and safety guidelines as required by federal, state and local government agencies, taking into consideration guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health authorities.

The Company believes its strong balance sheet and liquidity position provide it with flexibility to operate effectively through changing economic conditions. The Company plans to continue to generate strong cash flows from its homebuilding operations and manage its product offerings, incentives, home pricing, sales pace and inventory levels to optimize the return on its inventory investments in each of its communities based on local housing market conditions.
