D.R. Horton, Inc. (NYSE:DHI), America’s Builder, today reported that net income per common share attributable to D.R. Horton for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2023 increased 2% to $2.82 per diluted share compared to $2.76 per diluted share in the same quarter of fiscal 2023. Net income attributable to D.R. Horton in the first quarter of fiscal 2024 decreased 1% to $947.4 million compared to $958.7 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2023. Consolidated revenues in the first quarter of fiscal 2024 increased 6% to $7.7 billion compared to $7.3 billion in the same quarter of fiscal 2023.

Net cash used in operations was $153.4 million during the three months ended December 31, 2023. The Company's consolidated cash balance at December 31, 2023 was $3.3 billion and available capacity on its credit facilities was $3.1 billion, for total liquidity of $6.4 billion. Debt at December 31, 2023 totaled $5.3 billion, with no senior note maturities in fiscal 2024. The Company's debt to total capital ratio at December 31, 2023 was 18.6%. Debt to total capital ratio consists of notes payable divided by stockholders' equity plus notes payable.

The Company's return on equity (ROE) was 21.8% for the trailing twelve months ended December 31, 2023, and homebuilding return on inventory (ROI) was 29.0% for the same period. ROE is calculated as net income attributable to D.R. Horton for the trailing twelve months divided by average stockholders' equity, where average stockholders' equity is the sum of ending stockholders' equity balances of the trailing five quarters divided by five. Homebuilding ROI is calculated as homebuilding pre-tax income for the trailing twelve months divided by average inventory, where average inventory is the sum of ending homebuilding inventory balances for the trailing five quarters divided by five.

Donald R. Horton, Chairman of the Board, said, “The D.R. Horton team delivered solid results in the first fiscal quarter of 2024, highlighted by earnings of $2.82 per diluted share. Consolidated pre-tax income for the quarter was $1.2 billion on a 6% increase in revenues to $7.7 billion, with a pre-tax profit margin of 16.1%. Although inflation and mortgage interest rates remain elevated, our net sales orders increased 35% from the prior year quarter, as the supply of both new and existing homes at affordable price points remains limited, and demographics supporting housing demand remain favorable.

“We are well-positioned to meet changing market conditions with our affordable product offerings and flexible lot supply and are focused on turning our inventory to maximize returns and capital efficiency in each of our communities. Our strong balance sheet, liquidity and low leverage provide us with significant financial flexibility, and we plan to maintain our disciplined approach to investing capital to enhance the long-term value of our company, including returning capital to our shareholders through both dividends and share repurchases on a consistent basis.”
