Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN and LEN.B), one of the nation's leading homebuilders, today reported results for its third quarter ended August 31, 2018. Third quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2018 were $453.2 million, or $1.37 per diluted share, compared to third quarter net earnings attributable to Lennar in 2017 of $249.2 million, or $1.04 per diluted share.

This was partially offset by $34.1 million ($0.10 per diluted share) of tax benefits related to

Stuart Miller, Executive Chairman of Lennar, said, "We are pleased to announce our results for the quarter, we achieved net earnings of , or  per diluted share.

"While national economic data has pointed to higher prices and rising interest rates causing slower overall sales, the basic underlying fundamentals of the housing industry of low unemployment, higher wages and low inventory levels remain favorable and are likely to support longer-term strength in the housing market."

Rick Beckwitt, Chief Executive Officer of Lennar, said, "During the quarter, we continued to complete the integration of CalAtlantic to grow our business under one unified operating platform, and we remain right on track to achieve our synergy goals."

"Our homebuilding business had a strong third quarter with new orders and deliveries both up 11% over last year, on a pro forma basis for the acquisition of CalAtlantic. Our homebuilding gross margin was 21.9% when adjusted to eliminate the effects of the write-up of CalAtlantic backlog and construction in progress in purchase accounting. Our SG&A of 8.6% marked an all-time, third-quarter low which shows our continued focus on leveraging our size and scale  utilizing our enhanced technologies to reduce costs."

"Complementing our homebuilding business, our Financial Services operating earnings increased to $ million from $49.1 million last year, expanding its platform across a greater number of deliveries, which was partially offset by the year-over-year reduction in refinance activity."

Jon Jaffe, President and Chief Operating Officer of Lennar, said, "With the CalAtlantic integration substantially completed, we are keenly focused on direct construction cost savings. The strategy of achieving material scale in local markets is playing out as planned and fits right into our focus of being the 'Builder of Choice' for national manufacturers, suppliers and local trades."

Mr. Miller concluded, "With a solid balance sheet, strong cash flow generation and continued execution of our core operating strategies, we believe that we are very well positioned to continue our strong performance as we head towards the end of 2018 and into 2019."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

THREE MONTHS ENDED AUGUST 31, 2018 COMPARED TO
THREE MONTHS ENDED AUGUST 31, 2017

On February 12, 2018, Lennar Corporation completed its acquisition of CalAtlantic. Prior year information includes only stand alone data for Lennar Corporation.

Lennar Homebuilding

Revenues from home sales increased 83% in the third quarter of 2018 to $5.2 billion from $2.8 billion in the third quarter of 2017. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 66% increase in the number of home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, and a 10% increase in the average sales price of homes delivered. New home deliveries, excluding unconsolidated entities, increased to 12,600 homes in the third quarter of 2018 from 7,588 homes in the third quarter of as a result of the significant increase in volume resulting from the CalAtlantic acquisition. The average sales price of homes delivered was $415,000 in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $375,000 in the third quarter of 2017. The increase in average sales price was primarily resulting from the CalAtlantic acquisition. Sales incentives offered to homebuyers were $22,900 per home delivered in the third quarter of 2018, or 5.2% as a percentage of home sales revenue, compared to $21,800 per home delivered in the third quarter of 2017, or 5.5% as a percentage of home sales revenue, and $23,000 per home delivered in the second quarter of 2018, or 5.3% as a percentage of home sales revenue.

Gross margins on home sales were $1.1 billion, or 20.3%, in the third quarter of 2018. Excluding the backlog/construction in progress write-up of $84.2 million related to purchase accounting adjustments on CalAtlantic homes that were delivered in the third quarter of 2018, gross margins on home sales were $1.1 billion or compared to gross margins on home sales of $650.4 million, or 22.8%, in the third quarter of 2017, which included insurance recoveries of $10.3 million that positively impacted gross margin percentage by 30 basis points. Gross margin percentage on home sales decreased compared to the third quarter of 2017 primarily due to higher construction and land costs, partially offset by an increase in the average sales price of homes delivered.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $446.7 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $262.5 million in the third quarter of 2017. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 8.6% in the third quarter of 2018, from 9.2% in the third quarter of 2017, due to improved operating leverage as a result of an increase in home deliveries and continued benefit from technology initiatives. WCI Communities, Inc. ("WCI") transaction-related expenses had a negative 20 basis point impact to selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenues from home sales in the third quarter of 2017.

Gross profits on land sales were $3.3 million in the three months ended August 31, 2018, compared to $5.2 million in the three months ended August 31, 2017. Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $9.7 million in the third quarter of 2017. In the third quarter of 2018, Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was primarily attributable to the Company's share of valuation adjustments related to assets of a Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entity, partially offset by the Company's share of net operating earnings from its other unconsolidated entities. In the third quarter of 2017, Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was primarily attributable to the Company's share of net operating losses from its unconsolidated entities, which was primarily driven by general and administrative expenses, as there were no significant land sale transactions for which the Company recognized its share of earnings during the third quarter of 2017. Lennar Homebuilding other income, net, was $12.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2017.

Lennar Homebuilding interest expense was $86.9 million in the third quarter of 2018 ($83.0 million was included in costs of homes sold, $0.8 million in costs of land sold and $3.1 million in other income, net), compared to $71.8 million in the third quarter of 2017 ($68.6 million was included in costs of homes sold, $0.9 million in costs of land sold and $2.3 million in other income, net). Interest expense included in costs of homes sold increased primarily due to an increase in home deliveries.

Lennar Financial Services

Operating earnings for the Lennar Financial Services segment were $56.6 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $49.1 million in the third quarter of 2017. Operating earnings were impacted by an increase in the segment's title and mortgage operations due to the acquisition of CalAtlantic's Financial Services operations, partially offset by a decrease in refinance transactions and lower mortgage profit per loan originated.

Rialto

Operating earnings for the Rialto segment were $10.7 million in the third quarter of 2018 (which included $9.4 million of operating earnings and an add back of $1.2 million of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests). Operating earnings in the third quarter of 2017 were $3.2 million (which included a $3.2 million operating loss and an add back of $6.4 million of net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests). The increase in operating earnings was primarily due to a decrease in real estate owned impairments due to the liquidation of the FDIC and bank portfolios earlier in the year as well as decreases in general and administrative expenses and interest expense. The increase in operating earnings was partially offset by decreases in incentive and interest income, as well as a decrease in Rialto Mortgage Finance ("RMF") securitization earnings due to lower average net margin.

Lennar Multifamily

Operating loss for the Lennar Multifamily segment was $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, primarily driven by selling, general and administrative expenses of the segment and equity in loss related to Lennar Multifamily Venture Fund I ("LMV Fund I") and other Multifamily joint ventures as a result of incurring expenses that exceeded revenues while rental operations were reaching stabilization. This was partially offset by $1.7 million of our share of gains from the sale of one operating property as well as $5.1 million of promote revenue related to two properties in LMV Fund I. In the third quarter of 2017, the Lennar Multifamily segment had operating earnings of $9.1 million primarily due to the segment's $15.4 million share of gains as a result of the sale of two operating properties by Lennar Multifamily's unconsolidated entities and management fee income, partially offset by general and administrative expenses.

Corporate General and Administrative Expenses

Corporate general and administrative expenses were $96.3 million, or 1.7% as a percentage of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $72.9 million, or 2.2% as a percentage of total revenues, in the third quarter of 2017. The decrease in corporate general and administrative expenses as a percentage of total revenues was due to improved operating leverage as a result of an increase in revenues.

Noncontrolling Interests

Net earnings (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests were $14.4 million and ($5.6) million in the third quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively. Net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests during the third quarter of 2018 were primarily attributable to net earnings related to the Lennar Homebuilding consolidated joint ventures. Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests in the third quarter of 2017 was primarily attributable to 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.

This compared to gross margin on home sales of $1.7 billion, or 21.9%, in the nine months ended August 31, margin percentage on home sales decreased compared to the nine months ended August 31, 2017 primarily due to higher construction and land costs, partially offset by an increase in the average sales price of homes delivered.

In the nine months ended August 31, 2018, Lennar Homebuilding equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was primarily attributable to the Company's share of valuation adjustments related to assets of a Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entity and the Company's share of net operating losses from its unconsolidated entities.

OTHER TRANSACTIONS

Merger with CalAtlantic

On February 12, 2018, the Company completed the acquisition of CalAtlantic through a transaction in which CalAtlantic was merged with and into a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company ("Merger Sub"), with Merger Sub continuing as the surviving corporation and a subsidiary of the Company (the "Merger"). CalAtlantic was a homebuilder which built homes across the homebuilding spectrum, from entry level to luxury, in 43 metropolitan statistical areas spanning 19 states. CalAtlantic provided mortgage, title and escrow services. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2018, the Company recorded $12.0 million and $140.1 million, respectively, of acquisition and integration costs related to the Merger.

Debt Transactions

During the three months ended August 31, 2018, the Company redeemed $250 million aggregate principal amount of 6.95% senior notes due 2018. The redemption price, which was paid in cash, was 100% of the principal amount plus accrued but unpaid interest.

Tax Reform

In December 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted, which will have a positive impact on our effective tax rate in 2018 and subsequent years. The tax reform bill, and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 enacted in February, is expected to reduce our effective tax rate from 34% in 2017 to approximately 24% in 2018.

For the three and nine months ended August 31, 2018, the Company's effective tax rate was 17.8% and 25.4%, respectively. The rate was positively impacted by tax accounting method changes implemented during the third quarter, the domestic productions activities deduction, and energy credits. Excluding the one-time non-cash deferred tax asset write down of $68.6 million recorded in the first quarter of 2018 due to the tax reform bill and the $34.1 million benefit recorded in the third quarter of 2018, primarily related to tax accounting method changes and energy credits, the tax rate for the nine months ended August 31, 2018 would have been 22.6%. The tax rate for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2017 was 33.4% and 33.6%, respectively.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation

Net earnings, adjusted to exclude backlog/construction in progress write-up related to CalAtlantic purchase accounting and CalAtlantic acquisition and integration costs, is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance or liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management believes this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors because it shows what our earnings would have been but for backlog/construction in progress write-up related to CalAtlantic purchase accounting and CalAtlantic acquisition and integration costs. The following is a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP measure:
