New contracts for the third quarter of 2021 were 1,964, a 33% decrease from 2,949 new contracts in 2020. For the first nine months of 2021, new contracts increased 1% to 7,340 compared to 7,299 in the first nine months of 2020.

The Company's cancellation rate was 8% and 10% in the third quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Robert H. Schottenstein, Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, “We are pleased with our third quarter performance highlighted by a number of records including a 24% increase in net income and continued strong returns. We achieved these record third quarter results despite 15% fewer communities than a year ago and significant supply chain disruptions. We increased our revenue by 7% to a third quarter record $904 million, increased pre-tax income by 32% to $125 million, excluding a charge for early extinguishment of debt, and improved our operating margin by 250 basis points to 13.8%, which aided us in producing a strong return on equity of 27%. Our gross margins improved by 160 basis points over last year to 24.5%, and our overhead expense ratio improved by 90 basis points to 10.7%. Despite our reduced community count and limiting sales in a majority of our communities, our third quarter sales pace was 3.7 homes per month. As a result, we set an all-time quarterly record in backlog sales value of $2.5 billion – a 40% increase from a year-ago.”

Mr. Schottenstein continued, “We are also very excited to announce that we are commencing operations in the Nashville market, one of the nation’s most dynamic and fastest growing housing markets. We have been looking at Nashville for several years and believe it will be a very successful operation for us.”

Mr. Schottenstein concluded, “We ended the quarter with record-high shareholders’ equity of $1.5 billion, an increase of 31% from 2020’s third quarter, equating to book value of $53 per share. Our cash position at quarter end was $221 million, with no borrowings on our $550 million credit facility and a homebuilding debt to capital ratio of 31%. During the quarter, we also repurchased $16 million of our common shares and extended our senior debt maturities by issuing $300 million of 3.95% senior notes that mature in 2030, replacing our 2025 senior notes. Overall, we are on track for a solid finish to 2021 and are well positioned for 2022 with a healthy balance sheet, a solid land pipeline, a strong backlog and a significant number of new communities opening in 2022.”
