Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN and LEN.B), one of the nation's largest homebuilders, today reported results for its third quarter ended August 31, 2013. Third quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2013 were $120.7 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, which includes a $67.2 million tax provision, compared to third quarter 2012 net earnings attributable to Lennar of $87.1 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, which includes a $12.8 million tax benefit.

Stuart Miller, Chief Executive Officer of Lennar Corporation, said, "We are very pleased with our quarterly results, reporting earnings per share of $0.54. During the third quarter, our gross margin percentage on home sales improved to 24.9%, while our S,G&A expenses as a percentage of home sales revenue decreased to 10.2%, driving strong operating leverage as evidenced by an operating margin percentage of 14.7%. Despite a moderating sales pace, the number of new home orders in the quarter increased 14%, with a 16% increase in average sales price, resulting in a 32% increase in the dollar value of new home orders from the prior year period.  We ended the quarter with a solid backlog, with a 32% increase in the number of homes and a 53% increase in backlog dollar value. Meanwhile, our financial services business generated $23.5 million of earnings during the quarter, despite a significant slowdown of refinance business."

Mr. Miller continued, "As our core businesses continue to improve, we are equally enthusiastic about the maturing of our ancillary businesses.  With $640 million of capital raised in Fund II at the end of the quarter, Rialto has continued its strategic growth toward becoming a blue-chip money manager for real estate properties, loans and securities.  Our Lennar Multi-Family rental business has continued to grow its pipeline to more than $2.5 billion at quarter-end, which is expected to be completed over the next four years.  In addition, our FivePoint Communities business continues to prepare to harvest some of the best land deals in California."    

"We continue to see long-term fundamental demand in the market driven by the significant shortfall of new single-family and multi-family homes built over the last five years. While there may be bumps along the road that may impact the short-term pace of the recovery, the long-term outlook for our business remains extremely bright."

Mr. Miller concluded, "With a strong balance sheet, a vibrant strategy in our core businesses of homebuilding and financial services, and our maturing ancillary businesses, we remain comfortably positioned for ongoing improvement in the marketplace."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

THREE MONTHS ENDED AUGUST 31, 2013 COMPARED TO
THREE MONTHS ENDED AUGUST 31, 2012

Lennar Homebuilding

Revenues from home sales increased 55% in the third quarter of 2013 to $1,447.6 million from $932.8 million in the third quarter of 2012. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 37% increase in the number of home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, and a 13% increase in the average sales price of homes delivered. New home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, increased to 4,972 homes in the third quarter of 2013 from 3,617 homes in the third quarter of 2012. There was an increase in home deliveries in all of the Company's Homebuilding segments and Homebuilding Other. The average sales price of homes delivered increased to $291,000 in the third quarter of 2013 from $258,000 in the same period last year. Sales incentives offered to homebuyers were $18,700 per home delivered in the third quarter of 2013, or 6.0% as a percentage of home sales revenue, compared to $26,100 per home delivered in the same period last year, or 9.2% as a percentage of home sales revenue, and $20,200 per home delivered in the second quarter of 2013, or 6.7% as a percentage of home sales revenue.

Gross margins on home sales were $360.9 million, or 24.9%, in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $216.2 million, or 23.2%, in the third quarter of 2012. Gross margin percentage on home sales improved compared to last year, primarily due to a greater percentage of deliveries from the Company's new higher margin communities (communities where land was acquired subsequent to November 30, 2008), a decrease in sales incentives offered to homebuyers as a percentage of revenue from home sales and an increase in the average sales price of homes delivered, partially offset by an increase in materials, labor and land costs. Gross profits on land sales totaled $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $148.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $112.2 million in the third quarter of 2012. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 10.2% in the third quarter of 2013, from 12.0% in the third quarter of 2012, due to improved operating leverage as a result of increased absorption per community and more active communities.

Lennar Homebuilding equity in earnings (loss) from unconsolidated entities was $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, related to the Company's share of operating earnings of Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities, primarily as a result of sales of homesites to third parties by one unconsolidated entity and deferred profit related to those homesites that was earned during the third quarter of 2013. This compared to Lennar Homebuilding equity in earnings (loss) of ($6.0) million in the third quarter of 2012, primarily related to the Company's share of operating losses of Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities.

Lennar Homebuilding other expense, net, totaled $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $5.4 million in the third quarter of 2012, which included a pre-tax loss of $6.5 million related to the repurchase of $204.7 million aggregate principal amount of the 5.95% senior notes due 2013 through a tender offer.

Lennar Homebuilding interest expense was $54.3 million in the third quarter of 2013 ($31.6 million was included in cost of homes sold, $0.5 million in cost of land sold and $22.2 million in other interest expense), compared to $45.0 million in the third quarter of 2012 ($21.9 million was included in cost of homes sold, $0.4 million in cost of land sold and $22.7 million in other interest expense). Interest expense increased due to an increase in the Company's outstanding debt and an increase in deliveries, partially offset by a lower weighted average interest rate compared to the same period last year.

Lennar Financial Services

Operating earnings for the Lennar Financial Services segment were $23.5 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $25.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. The decrease in profitability was primarily due to a decrease in the profit per transaction resulting from a reduction in refinance volume in the segment's mortgage operations.

Rialto Investments

Operating earnings for the Rialto Investments segment were $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2013 (which is comprised of $0.7 million of operating earnings and an add back of $0.8 million of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests), compared to operating earnings of $7.7 million (which is comprised of a $5.7 million operating loss and an add back of $13.4 million of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests) in the same period last year. Revenues in this segment were $27.8 million in the third quarter of 2013, which consisted primarily of accretable interest income associated with the segment's portfolio of real estate loans and fees for managing and servicing assets, compared to revenues of $37.2 million in the same period last year, which included $8.1 million in fees earned from Rialto's role as sub-advisor to the AllianceBernstein L.P. ("AB") fund formed under the Federal government's Public-Private Investment Program ("PPIP"). Revenues decreased primarily due to lower interest income as a result of a decrease in the segment's portfolio of loans and the fees earned related to the PPIP in 2012, which was successfully completed in 2012. Expenses in this segment were $34.2 million in the third quarter of 2013, which consisted primarily of costs related to its portfolio operations, loan impairments of $3.5 million primarily associated with the segment's FDIC loan portfolio (before noncontrolling interests) and other general and administrative expenses, compared to expenses of $46.4 million in the same period last year, which consisted primarily of costs related to its portfolio operations, loan impairments of $20.3 million primarily associated with the segment's FDIC loan portfolio (before noncontrolling interests), and other general and administrative expenses. Expenses decreased primarily due to a decrease in loan impairments.

Rialto Investments equity in earnings from unconsolidated entities was $5.2 million in the third quarter of 2013, which primarily included $5.1 million of equity in earnings related to the Company's share of earnings from the Rialto real estate funds. Equity in earnings from unconsolidated entities was $13.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, which included $8.1 million of net gains primarily related to realized gains from the sale of investments in the portfolio underlying the AB PPIP fund, $1.2 million of interest income earned by the AB PPIP fund and $6.2 million of equity in earnings related to the Rialto Real Estate Fund (the "Fund I").

The segment also had other income (expense), net, of $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2013, which consisted primarily of realized gains on the sale of real estate owned ("REO") of $9.7 million and rental income, partially offset by expenses related to owning and maintaining REO and impairments on REO. Rialto Investments other income (expense), net, was ($10.1) million in the third quarter of 2012, which consisted primarily of expenses related to owning and maintaining REO and impairments on REO, partially offset by realized gains on the sale of REO of $2.4 million and rental income.

Corporate General and Administrative Expenses

Corporate general and administrative expenses were $37.6 million, or 2.3% as a percentage of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $32.3 million, or 2.9% as a percentage of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2012. As a percentage of total revenues, corporate general and administrative expenses improved due to increased operating leverage. 

Noncontrolling Interests

Net earnings (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests were $1.5 million and ($15.7) million, respectively, in the third quarter of 2013 and 2012. Net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests during the third quarter of 2013 were primarily related to the Company's homebuilding operations partially offset by a net loss related to the FDIC's interest in the portfolio of real estate loans that the Company acquired in partnership with the FDIC. Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests during the third quarter of 2012 was primarily related to the FDIC's interest in the portfolio of real estate loans.

Income Taxes

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company had a $67.2 million provision for income taxes, compared to a $12.8 million tax benefit in the third quarter of 2012. During the third quarter of 2012, the Company reversed $35.4 million of its valuation allowance against its state deferred tax assets and $8.6 million of its valuation allowance that was previously maintained to be utilized in remaining periods of 2012. The total reversal for the third quarter of 2012 was $44.0 million. This reversal was offset by a tax provision of $31.2 million primarily related to third quarter 2012 pre-tax earnings.

Credit Facility

In June 2013, the Company increased the aggregate principal amount of its unsecured revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility") to $950 million, which includes an $18 million accordion feature, subject to additional commitments, and extended the Credit Facility's maturity date to June 2017. The proceeds available under the Credit Facility, which are subject to specified conditions for borrowing, may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The credit agreement also provides that up to $500 million in commitments may be used for letters of credit. As of August 31, 2013, the Company had $100 million of outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility. Additionally, the Company terminated its $150 million Letter of Credit and Reimbursement Agreement and its $50 million Letter of Credit and Reimbursement Agreement during the quarter.

Noncontrolling Interests

Income Taxes

During the nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company concluded that it was more likely than not that a portion of its state deferred tax assets would be utilized. This conclusion was based on additional positive evidence including actual and forecasted earnings, as well as the Company generating cumulative pre-tax earnings over a rolling four year period achieved during the second quarter of 2013. Accordingly, during the nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company reversed $67.1 million of its valuation allowance against its state deferred tax assets. This reversal was offset by a tax provision of $150.2 million primarily related to pre-tax earnings during the nine months ended August 31, 2013, resulting in an $83.1 million provision for income taxes. As of August 31, 2013, the Company's remaining valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets was $20.4 million, which is primarily related to state net operating loss carryforwards that may expire due to short carryforward periods. During the nine months ended August 31, 2012, the Company reversed $447.0 million of its valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.

Amount represents interest incurred related to Lennar Homebuilding debt.

(3)

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 Lennar Homebuilding debt to total capital is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net Lennar Homebuilding debt (Lennar
Homebuilding debt less Lennar Homebuilding cash and cash equivalents) divided by total capital (net Lennar Homebuilding debt
plus total stockholders' equity). The Company believes the ratio of Net Lennar Homebuilding debt to total capital is a relevant and
useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in our Lennar Homebuilding operations. However,
because Net Lennar 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.
