  • Revenue from homebuilding operations increased 36.2% to $343.9 million

Dustin Bogue, President and Chief Executive Officer of UCP, stated, “We are pleased to achieve record earnings for the full year 2016 as a result of sustained revenue momentum, operating discipline and a transformative approach to generating stronger profitability. During the year, our efforts to design innovative homes and uphold best in class construction standards allowed us grow homebuilding revenues and improve homebuilding gross margin, despite inflationary increases in material and labor costs. In the fourth quarter, the West division continued to be the main driver of growth, with home deliveries growing 22.8% and net new home orders growing 31.7%, on the strength of demand from our first-time and move down home buyer. In the Southeast, fourth quarter net new home orders grew for the second consecutive quarter. Overall, our West and Southeast markets continue to demonstrate healthy housing fundamentals with year-end backlog up 45.4% to 362 units. As we look to 2017 and beyond, we are committed to growing earnings through a sustainable pipeline of well-located communities to drive high-quality orders at attractive margins. We plan to accomplish this while improving balance sheet metrics, extending our debt maturities and maintaining an effective land strategy to improve returns on equity.”

Fourth Quarter 2016 Operating Results

Net income increased to $9.3 million for the quarter, compared to $7.6 million for the prior year period. Net income attributable to Class A common stockholders was $7.2 million, or $0.89 per share, compared to $3.2 million, or $0.40 per share, for the prior year period. Net income and net income attributable to Class A common stockholders of UCP for the fourth quarter 2016 included a $5.6 million tax benefit the majority of which was in connection with the removal of UCP’s valuation allowance of $5.5 million on its deferred tax asset as of December 31, 2016.

Homebuilding revenue increased 17.5% to $104.4 million, compared to $88.9 million for the prior year period. The improvement was driven by a 15.2% increase in homes delivered to 257, compared to 223 during the prior year period, led by increased deliveries of 22.8% in the West. The average selling price of a home increased 1.8% to $406,000 per home, compared to the prior year period.

Homebuilding gross margin percentage was 18.6%, compared to 18.0% for the prior year period. Adjusted homebuilding gross margin percentage was 20.9%, compared to 21.1% for the prior year period, due primarily to inflationary increases in material and labor costs. Consolidated gross margin percentage was 18.5%, compared to 19.6% for the prior year period, primarily as a result of lower revenue from a significant land sale in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Sales and marketing expense was $5.7 million, or flat compared to the prior year period. As a percentage of total revenue, sales and marketing expense increased slightly to 5.4%, compared to 5.3% for the prior year period, due to a reduction in land development revenue. Sales and marketing expense as a percentage of homebuilding revenue improved by 100 basis points year-over-year.

General and administrative expense was $10.1 million, compared to $7.6 million for the prior year period. General and administrative expense in the fourth quarter 2016 included approximately $1.3 million of one-time expenses associated with professional fees in connection with capital market activities, which was partly offset by tightly managing other G&A expenses. As a percentage of total revenue, general and administrative expense was 9.6% compared to 7.1% for the prior year period, primarily attributable to the one-time costs in the fourth quarter of 2016 and a reduction in land development revenue.

Net new home orders increased 26.1% to 232, compared to 184 for the prior year period, led by a 31.7% increase in net new home orders in the West. The average number of selling communities remained consistent with the prior year period at 28. Unit backlog at the end of the quarter was up 45.4% to 362, compared to 249 at the end of the prior year period. Unit backlog in the Southeast improved 64.1% to 105 homes. Backlog on a dollar basis increased 37.6% to $149.6 million, compared to $108.8 million at the end of the prior year period.

Total lots owned and controlled were 6,638 at December 31, 2016, compared to 5,878 at December 31, 2015. UCP reduced its number of owned lots by 720 lots to 4,031 and increased its number of controlled lots by 1,480 lots to 2,607, as UCP continues to prudently manage its inventory and strive to expand its return on equity and assets.

Full Year 2016 Operating Results

Net income increased to $14.4 million for 2016, compared to $5.8 million for 2015. Net income attributable to Class A common stockholders was $9.2 million, or $1.15 per share, compared to $2.4 million, or $0.30 per share, for the prior year.

Total consolidated revenue increased 25.3% to $349.4 million, compared to $278.8 million for the prior year. Homebuilding revenue increased 36.2% to $343.9 million, compared to $252.6 million for the prior year. The improvement was the result of a 17.0% increase in the number of homes delivered to 820 during 2016, compared to 701 during 2015, and a 16.4% increase in the average selling price per home. Land development revenue was $5.4 million, compared to $21.1 million for the prior year. Opportunities to sell land at attractive margins did not exist during 2016 to the extent they did in 2015 and the economics did not justify foregoing margins available from building homes through ongoing operations.

Homebuilding gross margin percentage was 18.3%, compared to 17.8% for the prior year. Adjusted Homebuilding gross margin was 20.7%, compared to 20.3% for the prior year. Consolidated gross margin percentage was 17.6%, compared to 18.5% for the prior year. Selling, general and administrative expense was $48.4 million, compared to $45.8 million for the prior year. As a percentage of total revenue, selling, general and administrative expense was 13.9%, compared to 16.4% for the prior year.

Net new home orders increased 8.5% to 933 from 860 for the prior year while the average number of selling communities remained consistent with the prior year at 28.

Stock Repurchase Program

In June 2016, UCP’s board of directors authorized a stock repurchase program, under which UCP may repurchase up to $5.0 million of its Class A common stock through June 1, 2018. As of December 31, 2016, UCP had repurchased 146,346 shares of Class A common stock for approximately $1.2 million under this stock repurchase program.

(1) Adjusted gross margin, adjusted homebuilding gross margin and adjusted land development gross margin are non-GAAP financial measures. These metrics have been adjusted to add back capitalized interest, and impairment and abandonment charges. We use adjusted gross margin information as a supplemental measure when evaluating our operating performance. We believe this information is meaningful, because it isolates the impact that leverage and non-cash impairment and abandonment charges have on gross margin. However, because adjusted gross margin information excludes interest expense and impairment and abandonment charges, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results, the utility of adjusted gross margin information as a measure of our operating performance is limited. In addition, other companies may not calculate adjusted gross margin information in the same manner that we do. Accordingly, adjusted gross margin information should be considered only as a supplement to gross margin information as a measure of our performance. The table above provides a reconciliation of adjusted gross margin numbers to the most comparable GAAP financial measure.
 
     

Debt-to-Capital and Net Debt-to-Capital Ratios

 
At December 31,
(Dollars in thousands)       2016   2015
Debt $ 160,994 $ 155,966
Equity       226,886   217,408  
Total capital $ 387,880 $ 373,374
Ratio of debt-to-capital       41.5 % 41.8 %
Debt $ 160,994 $ 155,966
 
Net cash and cash equivalents $ 42,478 $ 40,729
Less: restricted cash and minimum liquidity requirement       16,547   15,900  
Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents 25,931 24,829
 
Net debt $ 135,063 $ 131,137
Equity       226,886   217,408  
Total adjusted capital $ 361,949 $ 348,545
Ratio of net debt-to-capital (1) 37.3 % 37.6 %
 
(1)   The ratio of net debt-to-capital is computed as the quotient obtained by dividing net debt (which is debt less cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash balance requirements) by the sum of net debt plus stockholders’ and member's equity. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is the ratio of debt-to-capital. We believe the ratio of net debt-to-capital is a relevant financial measure for investors to understand the leverage employed in our operations and as an indicator of our ability to obtain financing. We reconcile this non-GAAP financial measure to the ratio of debt-to-capital in the table above. UCP’s calculation of net debt-to-capital ratio might not be comparable with other issuers or issuers in other industries.
