 KB Home Reports 2016 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results
   Wednesday, January 11, 2017 4:05:00 PM ET

--Net Orders Increase 20% to 2,254; Net Order Value Up 27% to $856 Million

--Backlog Value Increases to $1.5 Billion, Highest Year-End Level Since 2006

KB Home (KBH ) today reported results for its fourth quarter and year ended November 30, 2016.

"We made considerable progress on several fronts in 2016 with solid operational execution driving year-over-year increases in our annual deliveries, revenues and earnings," said Jeffrey Mezger, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We finished the year with strong fourth quarter performance and poised for long-term success with a roadmap for returns-focused growth, a refined core business strategy, and specific three-year financial targets. We also took decisive actions to improve our asset efficiency, committing to sell certain non-core land assets over the coming year. While this resulted in inventory-related impairment charges in the quarter, we intend to productively redeploy the cash proceeds to deleverage our balance sheet and invest in our business."

"With healthy net order activity in the fourth quarter contributing to our highest backlog value level in 10 years, we are entering 2017 with strong momentum," said Mezger. "Our strategy is to continue to grow the scale of our business within our current geographic footprint, increase our operating profits, and generate cash internally to both support our future growth and improve our leverage ratio. We believe we are well positioned to capitalize on the continuing increase in demand from first-time homebuyers accompanying current positive economic and demographic trends in many of our served markets."

KB HOME RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES For the Twelve Months and Three Months Ended November 30, 2016 and 2015 (In Thousands, Except Percentages)

This press release contains, and Company management’s discussion of the results presented in this press release may include, information about the Company’s adjusted housing gross profit margin and ratio of net debt to capital, both of which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are relevant and useful to investors in understanding its operations and the leverage employed in its operations, and may be helpful in comparing the Company with other companies in the homebuilding industry to the extent they provide similar information. However, because the adjusted housing gross profit margin and the ratio of net debt to capital are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, these financial measures may not be completely comparable to other companies in the homebuilding industry and, therefore, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to operating performance and/or financial measures prescribed by GAAP. Rather, these non-GAAP financial measures should be used to supplement their respective most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in order to provide a greater understanding of the factors and trends affecting the Company’s operations.

Adjusted Housing Gross Profit Margin

The following table reconciles the Company’s housing gross profit margin calculated in accordance with GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measure of the Company’s adjusted housing gross profit margin:

(a) Represents the amortization of previously capitalized interest associated with housing operations.

(b) Represents inventory impairment and land option contract abandonment charges associated with housing operations.

Adjusted housing gross profit margin is a non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company calculates by dividing housing revenues less housing construction and land costs excluding (1) amortization of previously capitalized interest associated with housing operations and (2) housing inventory impairment and land option contract abandonment charges recorded during a given period, by housing revenues. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is housing gross profit margin. The Company believes adjusted housing gross profit margin is a relevant and useful financial measure to investors in evaluating the Company’s performance as it measures the gross profits the Company generated specifically on the homes delivered during a given period. This non-GAAP financial measure isolates the impact that the amortization of previously capitalized interest associated with housing operations, and housing inventory impairment and land option contract abandonment charges have on housing gross profit margins, and allows investors to make comparisons with the Company’s competitors that adjust housing gross profit margins in a similar manner. The Company also believes investors will find adjusted housing gross profit margin relevant and useful because it represents a profitability measure that may be compared to a prior period without regard to variability of amortization of previously capitalized interest associated with housing operations, and housing inventory impairment and land option contract abandonment charges. This financial measure assists management in making strategic decisions regarding community location and product mix, product pricing and construction pace.

The ratio of net debt to capital is a non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company calculates by dividing notes payable, net of homebuilding cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash, by capital (notes payable, net of homebuilding cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash, plus stockholders’ equity). The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is the ratio of debt to capital. The Company believes the ratio of net debt to capital is a relevant and useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in the Company’s operations.
