FINANCIAL GUIDANCE(2):

The Company is reiterating its financial guidance for the full year of fiscal 2022 and is providing guidance for the third quarter of 2022. Financial guidance below assumes no adverse changes in current market conditions, including further deterioration in the supply chain, material increase in mortgage rates, or increased inflation and excludes further impact to SG&A expenses from phantom stock expense related solely to stock price movements from the closing price of $46.02 at April 29, 2022.

  • For the third quarter of fiscal 2022, total revenues are expected to be between $780 million and $830 million, gross margin, before cost of sales interest expense and land charges, is expected to be between 24.0% and 26.0% and adjusted pretax income is expected to be between $70 million and $85 million.

  • For fiscal 2022, total revenues are expected to be between $2.80 billion and $3.00 billion, gross margin, before cost of sales interest expense and land charges, is expected to be between 23.5% and 25.5%, adjusted pretax income is expected to be between $260 million and $310 million, adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $410 million and $460 million and fully diluted earnings per share is expected to be between $26.50 and $32.00. At the midpoint of our guidance, we anticipate our shareholders' equity to increase by approximately 105% by October 31, 2022.

  • Continue to focus on leverage levels and anticipate reducing senior secured notes by at least an additional $100 million during the second half of fiscal 2022.

(2)The Company cannot provide a reconciliation between its non-GAAP projections and the most directly comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain significant items required for the reconciliation. These items include, but are not limited to, land-related charges, inventory impairment loss and land option write-offs and loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could have a material impact on GAAP reported results.

COMMENTS FROM MANAGEMENT:

“Despite continued challenges due to supply chain disruptions, labor tightness, increasing mortgage rates and permitting/inspection delays, we are pleased our adjusted pretax income increased 184% year over year and was above the high end of our guidance range. We also reduced our senior secured notes by an additional $100 million during the second quarter of fiscal 2022,” stated Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “New homes sales face a persistent headwind from rising mortgage rates, increasing home prices and fears of a recession. Despite those concerns, demand for our homes throughout the second quarter of fiscal 2022 remained strong. During the second quarter of 2022 our contracts per community were 15.0, which was above the pre-Covid 2019 second quarter pace of 10.5 and the normal historical average (1997 through 2002) second quarter pace of 13.5 contracts per community.”

“We already have over 100% of our expected third and fourth quarter deliveries in contract backlog and we are beginning to build our fiscal 2023 backlog. This provides us with a high level of confidence that we are on track to achieve our adjusted profit guidance for fiscal 2022. Since August of 2021, we have paid off $281 million of senior secured notes prior to their maturity and anticipate paying off at least another $100 million of senior secured notes in the second half of fiscal 2022. Additionally, by the end of 2022, we expect our equity to increase year over year by more than 100% to approximately $365 million. We remain focused on increasing profitability and further strengthening our balance sheet,” concluded Mr. Hovnanian.
