D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
December 31, 2017


NOTE A – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited, consolidated financial statements include the accounts of D.R. Horton, Inc. and all of its 100% owned, majority-owned and controlled subsidiaries, including recently acquired Forestar Group Inc. (Forestar), which are collectively referred to as the Company, unless the context otherwise requires. Noncontrolling interests represent the proportionate equity interests in consolidated entities that are not 100% owned by the Company. The Company owns a 75% controlling interest in Forestar and therefore is required to consolidate 100% of Forestar within its consolidated financial statements, and the 25% interest the Company does not own is accounted for as noncontrolling interests. The Company’s investment in unconsolidated entities in which significant influence, but not control, is held is accounted for by the equity method of accounting. All intercompany accounts, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. In the opinion of management, these financial statements reflect all adjustments considered necessary to fairly state the results for the interim periods shown, including normal recurring accruals and other items. These financial statements, including the consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2017, which was derived from audited financial statements, do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017.

Change in Presentation and Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made to conform to the current year’s presentation. The Company has changed the presentation of the consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations to present its homebuilding, land development, financial services and other operations on a combined basis. Prior year amounts have also been combined to reflect this presentation. Of the $56.7 million accounts payable and other liabilities in financial services and other operations at September 30, 2017, $4.8 million is classified as accounts payable and $51.9 million is classified as accrued expenses and other liabilities under the new presentation. See Note B for detailed financial information for the Company’s reporting segments.

Additionally, as a result of the adoption of ASU 2016-09 in the current period, $5.1 million of cash paid for shares withheld for taxes on stock-based awards was reclassified from operating cash flows to financing cash flows in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the three months ended December 31, 2016. These reclassifications had no effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

Seasonality

Historically, the homebuilding industry has experienced seasonal fluctuations; therefore, the operating results for the three months ended December 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018 or subsequent periods.

Business Acquisition

On October 5, 2017, the Company acquired 75% of the outstanding shares of Forestar for $558.3 million in cash, pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement entered into in June 2017 (the acquisition). Forestar was and continues to be a publicly-traded residential and real estate development company with operations currently in 16 markets and 11 states.

The Company’s alignment with Forestar advances its strategy of increasing its access to high-quality optioned land and lot positions to enhance operational efficiency and returns. Both companies are identifying land development opportunities to expand Forestar’s platform, and the Company plans to acquire a large portion of Forestar’s finished lots in accordance with the master supply agreement between the two companies. As the controlling shareholder of Forestar, the Company has significant influence in guiding the strategic direction and operations of Forestar.

The Company hired a valuation firm to assist in the allocation of the purchase price to Forestar’s assets and liabilities. The fair values of inventories and the investment in unconsolidated entities were determined by discounting the expected future cash flows using discount rates of approximately 16% to 22% or based on contract prices from third parties. The fair values of inventories and the investment in unconsolidated entities utilized significant inputs not observable in the market, and thus represent Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of noncontrolling interests was based on valuing the Forestar shares that were not purchased by the Company at the weighted average stock price of Forestar on the acquisition date, which is a Level 1 measurement. The fair value of notes payable was based on quoted market prices, which is a Level 2 measurement. The fair values of other assets and liabilities primarily approximate carrying value due to their short-term nature, which is a Level 1 measurement. Certain estimated fair values, including goodwill, inventory, investment in unconsolidated entities, other assets and tax related amounts, are not yet finalized and are subject to revision as additional information becomes available and more detailed analyses are completed.

The purchase price was allocated based on the preliminary estimated fair value of 100% of Forestar’s assets and liabilities, as follows (in millions):
Cash
$
401.9

Inventories
344.7

Investment in unconsolidated entities

Notes payable
130.1

     Total liabilities
183.5

 
 
Less: Noncontrolling interests
175.2

     Net assets acquired
$
558.3


As a result of the acquisition, the Company’s preliminary estimate of goodwill is $20.0 million, none of which will be tax deductible. The goodwill relates to expected synergies from the relationship with Forestar under the master supply agreement that will increase the Company’s access to high-quality optioned land and lot positions. The transaction costs incurred by D.R. Horton related to this acquisition were $7.2 million, of which $5.3 million was incurred during the current period and expensed to selling, general and administrative expense in the three months ended December 31, 2017.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” which is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance. The core principle of this guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue for the transfer of goods or services equal to the amount that it expects to be entitled to receive for those goods or services. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and allows for full retrospective or modified retrospective methods of adoption. The Company currently plans to adopt this standard using the modified retrospective method and is continuing to evaluate its effect.

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11, “Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory,” which simplifies the subsequent measurement of inventory, excluding inventory measured using the last-in, first-out or retail inventory methods. The guidance specifies that inventory currently measured at the lower of cost or market, where market could be determined with different methods, should now be measured at the lower of cost or net realizable value. The guidance was effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2017 and did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, “Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities,” which addresses certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial instruments. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases,” which requires that lease assets and liabilities be recognized on the balance sheet and that key information about leasing arrangements be disclosed. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2019, although early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, “Compensation - Stock Compensation,” which simplifies several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. The guidance was effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2017 and did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
December 31, 2017




In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses,” which replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information in determining credit loss estimates. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2020 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows - Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments,” which amends and clarifies the current guidance to reduce diversity in practice of the classification of certain cash receipts and payments in the statement of cash flows. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated statements of cash flows.

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, “Statement of Cash Flows - Restricted Cash,” which requires amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the total beginning and ending amounts for the periods shown on the statement of cash flows. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position or cash flows.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, “Business Combinations - Clarifying the Definition of a Business,” which clarifies the definition of a business for determining whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other.” The guidance simplifies the measurement of goodwill impairment by removing the second step of the goodwill impairment test, which requires the determination of the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit. Under the new guidance, goodwill impairment is measured as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying amount exceeds its fair value with the loss recognized limited to the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2020 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-09, “Compensation - Stock Compensation: Scope of Modification Accounting,” which clarifies which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting. Under the new guidance, modification accounting is required if the fair value, vesting conditions or classification (equity or liability) of the new award are different from the original award immediately before the original award is modified. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE B – SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Company is a national homebuilder that is primarily engaged in the acquisition and development of land and the construction and sale of residential homes, with operations in 79 markets in 26 states across the United States. The Company’s operating segments are its 44 homebuilding divisions, its majority-owned Forestar land development operations acquired in October 2017, its financial services operations and its other business activities. The homebuilding operating segments are aggregated into six reporting segments, as shown below. The Company’s reporting segments are its homebuilding reporting segments, its Forestar land development segment and its financial services segment.

The Company’s homebuilding divisions design, build and sell single-family detached homes on lots they develop and on fully developed lots purchased ready for home construction. To a lesser extent, the homebuilding divisions also build and sell attached homes, such as townhomes, duplexes, triplexes and condominiums. The homebuilding divisions generate most of their revenues from the sale of homes, with a lesser amount from the sale of land and lots. The Company’s reportable homebuilding segments are: East, Midwest, Southeast, South Central, Southwest and West. These reporting segments have homebuilding operations located in the following states:
 
East:
 
Delaware, Georgia (Savannah only), Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia
 
Midwest:
 
Colorado, Illinois and Minnesota
 
Southeast:
 
Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee
 
South Central:
 
Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas
 
Southwest:
 
Arizona and New Mexico
 
West:
 
California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington

The Forestar land development reporting segment has operations in 16 markets and 11 states, where it owns, directly or through joint ventures, interests in residential and mixed-use projects. The Company’s homebuilding divisions and Forestar are currently identifying land development opportunities to expand Forestar’s platform, and the homebuilding divisions expect to acquire a large portion of Forestar’s finished lots in accordance with the master supply agreement. Forestar’s segment results are presented on their historical cost basis, consistent with the manner in which management evaluates segment performance.

The Company’s financial services reporting segment provides mortgage financing and title agency services to homebuyers in many of the Company’s homebuilding markets. The segment generates the substantial majority of its revenues from originating and selling mortgages and collecting fees for title insurance agency and closing services. The Company sells substantially all of the mortgages it originates and the related servicing rights to third-party purchasers.

In addition to its core homebuilding, land development and financial services operations, the Company has subsidiaries that engage in other business activities. These subsidiaries conduct insurance-related operations, construct and own income-producing rental properties, own non-residential real estate including ranch land and improvements and own and operate oil and gas related assets. One of these subsidiaries, DHI Communities, recently began developing and constructing multi-family rental properties on land parcels the Company already owned and currently has five projects under active construction. At December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, property and equipment balances in the consolidated balance sheets included $115.6 million and $93.7 million, respectively, related to costs incurred by DHI Communities. The results of these subsidiaries are immaterial for separate reporting and therefore are grouped together and presented as other.

There were no impairment charges recorded in the three months ended December 31, 2016.

During both of the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company wrote off $2.3 million of earnest money deposits and pre-acquisition costs related to land option contracts that the Company has terminated or expects to terminate.

Land held for sale of $204.2 million at December 31, 2017 primarily relates to legacy assets in the Forestar land development segment that the Company expects to sell in the next twelve months. On February 8, 2018, the Company sold these assets. See Note O.

D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
December 31, 2017




Homebuilding:

The Company has a $1.275 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility with an uncommitted accordion feature that could increase the size of the facility to $1.9 billion, subject to certain conditions and availability of additional bank commitments. The facility also provides for the issuance of letters of credit with a sublimit equal to approximately 50% of the revolving credit commitment. Letters of credit issued under the facility reduce the available borrowing capacity. The interest rate on borrowings under the revolving credit facility may be based on either the Prime Rate or London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus an applicable margin, as defined in the credit agreement governing the facility. The maturity date of the facility is September 25, 2022. Borrowings and repayments under the facility were $715 million and $415 million, respectively, during the three months ended December 31, 2017. At December 31, 2017, there were $300 million of borrowings outstanding at a 3.4% annual interest rate and $98.0 million of letters of credit issued under the revolving credit facility.

The Company’s revolving credit facility imposes restrictions on its operations and activities, including requiring the maintenance of a maximum allowable ratio of debt to tangible net worth and a borrowing base restriction if the Company’s ratio of debt to tangible net worth exceeds a certain level. These covenants are measured as defined in the credit agreement governing the facility and are reported to the lenders quarterly. A failure to comply with these financial covenants could allow the lending banks to terminate the availability of funds under the revolving credit facility or cause any outstanding borrowings to become due and payable prior to maturity. The credit agreement governing the facility and the indenture governing the senior notes also impose restrictions on the creation of secured debt and liens. At December 31, 2017, the Company was in compliance with all of the covenants, limitations and restrictions of its revolving credit facility and public debt obligations.

The Company has an automatically effective universal shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in August 2015, registering debt and equity securities that the Company may issue from time to time in amounts to be determined.

In December 2017, the Company issued $400 million principal amount of 2.55% senior notes due December 1, 2020, with interest payable semi-annually. The notes represent unsecured obligations of the Company. The annual effective interest rate of these notes after giving effect to the amortization of financing costs is 2.8%. In December 2017, the Company redeemed $400 million principal amount of its 3.625% senior notes due February 2018. The senior notes were redeemed at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest.

Effective August 1, 2017, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $500 million of the Company’s debt securities effective through July 31, 2018. All of the $500 million authorization was remaining at December 31, 2017.

Forestar:

On October 5, 2017, Forestar terminated its $50 million senior credit facility. The $50 million senior credit facility included a $50 million sublimit for letters of credit, of which $14.3 million was outstanding at the time of termination. Also on October 5, 2017, Forestar entered into a new agreement providing for a $30 million secured standby letter of credit facility, secured by $40 million in cash, which is included in restricted cash in the consolidated balance sheet. Letters of credit outstanding under the prior facility were transferred to the new facility. Outstanding letters of credit at December 31, 2017 totaled $14.4 million.

D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
December 31, 2017




On October 5, 2017, Forestar had $120 million principal amount of 3.75% convertible senior notes due 2020. The completion of the acquisition resulted in a fundamental change in the notes as described in the related note indentures and as a result, Forestar offered to purchase all or any part of every holder’s convertible senior notes for a price in cash equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of repurchase. As a result, Forestar purchased $1.1 million of the aggregate principal amount of the notes. Also, prior to the acquisition, upon conversion of the notes each holder was entitled to receive 40.8351 shares of former Forestar common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes surrendered for conversion. In connection with the acquisition, the conversion ratio was adjusted in accordance with the indenture governing the convertible notes such that each holder is now entitled to receive $579.77062 in cash and 8.17192 shares of new Forestar common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes surrendered for conversion. The convertible senior notes are not guaranteed by D.R. Horton, Inc. or any of the subsidiaries that guarantee the Company’s homebuilding debt.

On October 5, 2017, Forestar had $5.3 million principal amount of 8.50% senior secured notes due 2022. Pursuant to the indenture governing the notes, the notes were redeemed for $5.9 million on October 30, 2017.

Financial Services:

The Company’s mortgage subsidiary, DHI Mortgage, has a mortgage repurchase facility that is accounted for as a secured financing. The mortgage repurchase facility provides financing and liquidity to DHI Mortgage by facilitating purchase transactions in which DHI Mortgage transfers eligible loans to the counterparties against the transfer of funds by the counterparties, thereby becoming purchased loans. DHI Mortgage then has the right and obligation to repurchase the purchased loans upon their sale to third-party purchasers in the secondary market or within specified time frames from 45 to 60 days in accordance with the terms of the mortgage repurchase facility. The total capacity of the facility is $600 million; however, the capacity increases, without requiring additional commitments, to $725 million for approximately 30 days at each quarter end and to $800 million for approximately 45 days at fiscal year end. The capacity of the facility can also be increased to $1.0 billion subject to the availability of additional commitments. The Company is currently in discussions with its lenders and expects to renew and extend the facility on similar terms prior to its February 23, 2018 maturity date.

As of December 31, 2017, $494.6 million of mortgage loans held for sale with a collateral value of $476.6 million were pledged under the mortgage repurchase facility. As a result of advance paydowns totaling $89.1 million, DHI Mortgage had an obligation of $387.5 million outstanding under the mortgage repurchase facility at December 31, 2017 at a 3.7% annual interest rate.

The mortgage repurchase facility is not guaranteed by D.R. Horton, Inc. or any of the subsidiaries that guarantee the Company’s homebuilding debt. The facility contains financial covenants as to the mortgage subsidiary’s minimum required tangible net worth, its maximum allowable ratio of debt to tangible net worth and its minimum required liquidity. These covenants are measured and reported to the lenders monthly. At December 31, 2017, DHI Mortgage was in compliance with all of the conditions and covenants of the mortgage repurchase facility.

In the past, DHI Mortgage has been able to renew or extend its mortgage credit facility at a sufficient capacity and on satisfactory terms prior to its maturity and obtain temporary additional commitments through amendments to the credit facility during periods of higher than normal volumes of mortgages held for sale. The liquidity of the Company’s financial services business depends upon its continued ability to renew and extend the mortgage repurchase facility or to obtain other additional financing in sufficient capacities.

NOTE E – CAPITALIZED INTEREST

The Company capitalizes interest costs incurred to inventory during active development and construction (active inventory). Capitalized interest is charged to cost of sales as the related inventory is delivered to the buyer. During periods in which the Company’s active inventory is lower than its debt level, a portion of the interest incurred is reflected as interest expense in the period incurred. During the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017, the Company’s active inventory exceeded its debt level, and all interest incurred was capitalized to inventory.

The following table summarizes the Company’s interest costs incurred, capitalized and expensed during the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016:

NOTE F – MORTGAGE LOANS

Mortgage Loans Held for Sale
Mortgage loans held for sale consist primarily of single-family residential loans collateralized by the underlying property. At December 31, 2017, mortgage loans held for sale had an aggregate carrying value of $538.2 million and an aggregate outstanding principal balance of $521.3 million. At September 30, 2017, mortgage loans held for sale had an aggregate carrying value of $587.3 million and an aggregate outstanding principal balance of $570.8 million. During the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, mortgage loans originated totaled $1.6 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively, and mortgage loans sold totaled $1.6 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively. The Company had gains on sales of loans and servicing rights of $57.0 million during the three months ended December 31, 2017 compared to $57.4 million in the prior year period. Net gains on sales of loans and servicing rights are included in revenues in the consolidated statements of operations. Approximately 91% of the mortgage loans sold by DHI Mortgage during the three months ended December 31, 2017 were sold to four major financial entities, one of which purchased 39% of the total loans sold.

To manage the interest rate risk inherent in its mortgage operations, the Company hedges its risk using derivative instruments, generally forward sales of mortgage-backed securities (MBS), which are referred to as “hedging instruments” in the following discussion. The Company does not enter into or hold derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.

December 31, 2017




Newly originated loans that have been closed but not committed to third-party purchasers are hedged to mitigate the risk of changes in their fair value. Hedged loans are committed to third-party purchasers typically within three days after origination. The notional amounts of the hedging instruments used to hedge mortgage loans held for sale vary in relationship to the underlying loan amounts, depending on the movements in the value of each hedging instrument relative to the value of the underlying mortgage loans. The fair value change related to the hedging instruments generally offsets the fair value change in the mortgage loans held for sale. The net fair value change, which for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 was not significant, is recognized in revenues in the consolidated statements of operations. At December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, the Company’s mortgage loans held for sale that were not committed to third-party purchasers totaled $374.7 million and $330.7 million, respectively, and the notional amounts of the hedging instruments related to those loans totaled $374.6 million and $330.7 million, respectively.

Other Mortgage Loans and Loss Reserves

Mortgage loans are sold with limited recourse provisions derived from industry-standard representations and warranties in the relevant agreements. These representations and warranties primarily involve the absence of misrepresentations by the borrower or other parties, the appropriate underwriting of the loan and in some cases, a required minimum number of payments to be made by the borrower. The Company generally does not retain any other continuing interest related to mortgage loans sold in the secondary market. The majority of other mortgage loans consists of loans repurchased due to these limited recourse obligations. Typically, these loans are impaired, and some become real estate owned through the foreclosure process. At December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, the Company’s total other mortgage loans and real estate owned, before loss reserves, were as follows:

The Company has recorded reserves for estimated losses on other mortgage loans and future loan repurchase obligations due to the limited recourse provisions, both of which are recorded as reductions of revenue. The loss reserve for loan repurchase and settlement obligations is estimated based on analysis of the volume of mortgages originated, loan repurchase requests received, actual repurchases and losses through the disposition of such loans or requests and discussions with mortgage purchasers. The reserve balances at December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017 were as follows:

Loan Commitments and Related Derivatives

The Company is party to interest rate lock commitments (IRLCs), which are extended to borrowers who have applied for loan funding and meet defined credit and underwriting criteria. At December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, the notional amount of IRLCs, which are accounted for as derivative instruments recorded at fair value, totaled $452.9 million and $446.2 million, respectively.

The Company manages interest rate risk related to its IRLCs through the use of best-efforts whole loan delivery commitments and hedging instruments. These instruments are considered derivatives in an economic hedge and are accounted for at fair value with gains and losses recognized in revenues in the consolidated statements of operations. At December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, the notional amount of best-efforts whole loan delivery commitments totaled $31.8 million and $26.9 million, respectively, and the notional amount of hedging instruments related to IRLCs not yet committed to purchasers totaled $376.4 million and $389.3 million, respectively.


NOTE G – INCOME TAXES

The Company’s income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 was $202.4 million and $111.2 million, respectively. The effective tax rate was 51.7% for the three months ended December 31, 2017 compared to 35.0% in the prior year period. The effective tax rate for the three months ended December 31, 2017 reflects the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act), which was enacted into law on December 22, 2017, and an excess tax benefit related to stock-based compensation. The effective tax rate for both periods includes an expense for state income taxes, reduced by tax benefits for the domestic production activities deduction.

The Tax Act reduced the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% for all corporations effective January 1, 2018. For fiscal year companies, the change in law requires the application of a blended tax rate in the year of change, which will be 24.5% for the Company’s fiscal year ending September 30, 2018. Thereafter, the applicable statutory tax rate is 21%. ASC 740 requires all companies to reflect the effects of the new law in the period in which the law was enacted. Accordingly, the Company reduced the statutory tax rate that applied to its year-to-date earnings from 35% to 24.5%. In addition, the Company remeasured its deferred tax assets and liabilities for the tax law change, which resulted in additional income tax expense of $108.7 million during the three months ended December 31, 2017. After the remeasurement, the Company’s deferred tax assets, net of deferred tax liabilities, were $260.8 million at December 31, 2017 compared to $376.2 million at September 30, 2017. No other tax law changes as a result of the Tax Act are expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements. The adjustment to the deferred tax accounts as a result of the law change is the Company’s best estimate based on the information available at this time and may change as additional information becomes available. Adjustments to deferred tax expense could arise if the actual timing of future deferred tax reversals and originations differs from current estimates and would be recorded in subsequent quarters until the filing of the Company’s federal tax return. Further, any required adjustment would be reflected as a discrete expense or benefit in the quarter that it is identified, as allowed by SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118.

On October 5, 2017, the Company acquired 75% of the outstanding shares of Forestar. The Company has recorded a preliminary estimate for goodwill of $20.0 million, which is not deductible for income tax purposes. Deferred tax assets of $19.5 million and a valuation allowance of $19.2 million were recorded as a result of the acquisition. At the acquisition date, the Company considered whether it was more likely than not that some portion or all of Forestar’s deferred tax assets would not be realized. In making such judgment, the Company considered all available positive and negative evidence. The Company determined that Forestar’s cumulative losses in recent years were a significant piece of negative evidence that outweighed the positive evidence, and a valuation allowance was recorded.

D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
December 31, 2017




In addition to the valuation allowance relating to Forestar’s deferred tax assets, the Company has a valuation allowance related to state deferred tax assets for net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards. The valuation allowance was recorded because it is more likely than not that a portion of the state NOL carryforwards will not be realized because some state NOL carryforward periods are too brief to realize the related deferred tax asset. The Company’s total valuation allowance was $21.7 million at December 31, 2017 and $11.2 million at September 30, 2017. The Company will continue to evaluate both the positive and negative evidence in determining the need for a valuation allowance with respect to its remaining state NOL carryforwards and Forestar’s deferred tax assets. Any reversal of the valuation allowance in future periods will impact the Company’s effective tax rate.

The accounting for deferred taxes is based upon estimates of future results. Differences between the anticipated and actual outcomes of these future results could have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated results of operations or financial position. Also, changes in existing federal and state tax laws and tax rates could affect future tax results and the valuation of the Company’s deferred tax assets.

NOTE I – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

The Company has an automatically effective universal shelf registration statement, filed with the SEC in August 2015, registering debt and equity securities that it may issue from time to time in amounts to be determined.

Effective August 1, 2017, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $200 million of the Company’s common stock effective through July 31, 2018. During the three months ended December 31, 2017, the Company repurchased 500,000 shares of its common stock for $25.4 million, resulting in a remaining authorization of $174.6 million at December 31, 2017.

During the three months ended December 31, 2017, the Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.125 per common share, which was paid on December 15, 2017 to stockholders of record on December 1, 2017. In January 2018, the Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.125 per common share, payable on March 9, 2018 to stockholders of record on February 23, 2018. Quarterly cash dividends of $0.10 per common share were approved and paid in the comparable quarters of fiscal 2017.


NOTE J – EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)

The Company’s Stock Incentive Plan provides for the granting of stock options and restricted stock units to executive officers, other key employees and non-management directors. Restricted stock unit awards may be based on performance (performance-based) or on service over a requisite time period (time-based). Performance-based and time-based RSU equity awards represent the contingent right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock per RSU if the vesting conditions and/or performance criteria are satisfied. The RSUs have no dividend or voting rights until vested.

In November 2017, a total of 330,000 performance-based RSU equity awards were granted to the Company’s Chairman, its Chief Executive Officer and its Chief Operating Officer. These awards vest at the end of a three-year performance period ending September 30, 2020. The number of units that ultimately vest depends on the Company’s relative position as compared to its peers in achieving certain performance criteria and can range from 0% to 200% of the number of units granted. The performance criteria are total shareholder return; return on investment; selling, general and administrative expense containment; and gross profit. The grant date fair value of these equity awards was $45.79 per unit. Compensation expense related to these grants was $1.6 million in the three months ended December 31, 2017, based on the Company’s performance against the peer group, the elapsed portion of the performance period and the grant date fair value of the award. Also, 40,000 time-based RSUs were granted to the Company’s Chief Financial Officer in November 2017. These time-based RSUs vest annually in equal installments over a three-year period ending November 2020. The fair value of this equity award on the date of grant was $43.46 per unit.

NOTE K – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Warranty Claims

The Company provides its homebuyers with a ten-year limited warranty for major defects in structural elements such as framing components and foundation systems, a two-year limited warranty on major mechanical systems, and a one-year limited warranty on other construction components. The Company’s warranty liability is based upon historical warranty cost experience in each market in which it operates and is adjusted to reflect qualitative risks associated with the types of homes built and the geographic areas in which they are built.

Changes in the Company’s warranty liability during the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 were as follows:

Legal Claims and Insurance

The Company is named as a defendant in various claims, complaints and other legal actions in the ordinary course of business. At any point in time, the Company is managing several hundred individual claims related to construction defect matters, personal injury claims, employment matters, land development issues, contract disputes and other matters. The Company has established reserves for these contingencies based on the estimated costs of pending claims and the estimated costs of anticipated future claims related to previously closed homes. The estimated liabilities for these contingencies were $419.7 million and $420.6 million at December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, respectively, and are included in accrued expenses and other liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets. Approximately 98% of these reserves related to construction defect matters at both December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017. Expenses related to the Company’s legal contingencies were $8.8 million and $27.0 million in the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

The Company’s reserves for construction defect claims include the estimated costs of both known claims and anticipated future claims. As of December 31, 2017, no individual existing claim was material to the Company’s financial statements. The Company has closed a significant number of homes during recent years and may be subject to future construction defect claims on these homes. Although regulations vary from state to state, construction defect issues can generally be reported for up to ten years after the home has closed in many states in which the Company operates. Historical data and trends regarding the frequency of claims incurred and the costs to resolve claims relative to the types of products and markets where the Company operates are used to estimate the construction defect liabilities for both existing and anticipated future claims. These estimates are subject to ongoing revision as the circumstances of individual pending claims and historical data and trends change. Adjustments to estimated reserves are recorded in the accounting period in which the change in estimate occurs.

D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
December 31, 2017




Historical trends in construction defect claims have been inconsistent, and the Company believes they may continue to fluctuate. Housing market conditions have been volatile across most of the Company’s markets over the past ten years, and the Company believes such conditions can affect the frequency and cost of construction defect claims. If the ultimate resolution of construction defect claims resulting from the Company’s home closings in prior years varies from current expectations, it could significantly change the Company’s estimates regarding the frequency and timing of claims incurred and the costs to resolve existing and anticipated future claims, which would impact the construction defect reserves in the future. If the frequency of claims incurred or costs of existing and future legal claims significantly exceed the Company’s current estimates, they will have a significant negative impact on its future earnings and liquidity.

The Company’s reserves for legal claims decreased from $420.6 million at September 30, 2017 to $419.7 million at December 31, 2017. Changes in the Company’s legal claims reserves during the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 were as follows:

The Company estimates and records receivables under its applicable insurance policies related to its estimated contingencies for known claims and anticipated future construction defect claims on previously closed homes and other legal claims and lawsuits incurred in the ordinary course of business when recovery is probable. Additionally, the Company may have the ability to recover a portion of its losses from its subcontractors and their insurance carriers when the Company has been named as an additional insured on their insurance policies. The Company’s receivables related to its estimates of insurance recoveries from estimated losses for pending legal claims and anticipated future claims related to previously closed homes totaled $73.1 million, $74.4 million and $84.7 million at December 31, 2017, September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, and are included in other assets in the consolidated balance sheets.

The estimation of losses related to these reserves and the related estimates of recoveries from insurance policies are subject to a high degree of variability due to uncertainties such as trends in construction defect claims relative to the Company’s markets and the types of products built, claim frequency, claim settlement costs and patterns, insurance industry practices and legal interpretations, among others. Due to the high degree of judgment required in establishing reserves for these contingencies, actual future costs and recoveries from insurance could differ significantly from current estimated amounts, and it is not possible for the Company to make a reasonable estimate of the possible loss or range of loss in excess of its reserves.

Land and Lot Option Purchase Contracts

The Company enters into land and lot option purchase contracts to acquire land or lots for the construction of homes. Under these contracts, the Company will fund a stated deposit in consideration for the right, but not the obligation, to purchase land or lots at a future point in time with predetermined terms. Under the terms of many of the option purchase contracts, the option deposits are not refundable in the event the Company elects to terminate the contract. Option deposits are included in other assets in the consolidated balance sheets.



25


D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
December 31, 2017




At December 31, 2017, the Company had total deposits of $269.7 million, consisting of cash deposits of $263.8 million and promissory notes and letters of credit of $5.9 million, to purchase land and lots with a total remaining purchase price of approximately $5.0 billion. The majority of land and lots under contract are currently expected to be purchased within three years. A limited number of the land and lot option purchase contracts at December 31, 2017, representing $35.4 million of remaining purchase price, were subject to specific performance provisions which may require the Company to purchase the land or lots upon the land sellers meeting their contractual obligations.

Option purchase contracts can result in the creation of a variable interest in the entity holding the land parcel under option. There were no variable interest entities reported in the consolidated balance sheets at December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017 because the Company determined it did not control the activities that most significantly impact the variable interest entity’s economic performance, and it did not have an obligation to absorb losses of or the right to receive benefits from the entity. The maximum exposure to losses related to the Company’s variable interest entities is limited to the amounts of the Company’s related option deposits. At December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017, the option deposits related to these contracts totaled $256.6 million and $222.9 million, respectively.

Other Commitments

At December 31, 2017, the Company had outstanding surety bonds of $1.2 billion and letters of credit of $114.9 million to secure performance under various contracts. Of the total letters of credit, $98.0 million were issued under the Company’s revolving credit facility and $14.4 million were issued by Forestar. The remaining $2.5 million of letters of credit were issued under a secured letter of credit agreement requiring the Company to deposit cash as collateral with the issuing bank, and the cash restricted for this purpose is included in restricted cash in the consolidated balance sheets.

NOTE M – INVESTMENT IN UNCONSOLIDATED ENTITIES

As a result of the Forestar acquisition, the Company obtained ownership interests in 15 entities that are accounted for by the equity method. The purpose of these entities is to acquire and develop residential, multi-family and mixed-use communities. At December 31, 2017, the Company’s investment in these unconsolidated entities was $86.1 million, which includes a purchase accounting adjustment of $21.0 million to increase the investments to their fair value at the acquisition date. The aggregate outstanding debt of these entities was $85.1 million, of which $79.5 million is non-recourse to the Company.

NOTE N – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Fair value measurements are used for the Company’s mortgage loans held for sale, debt securities collateralized by residential real estate, IRLCs and other derivative instruments on a recurring basis and are used for inventories, other mortgage loans and real estate owned on a nonrecurring basis, when events and circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. The fair value hierarchy and its application to the Company’s assets and liabilities is as follows:

Level 1 – Valuation is based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities. The Company does not currently have any assets or liabilities measured at fair value using Level 1 inputs.
Level 2 – Valuation is determined from quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, or by model-based techniques in which all significant inputs are observable in the market. The Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value using Level 2 inputs on a recurring basis are as follows:
mortgage loans held for sale;
IRLCs; and
loan sale commitments and hedging instruments.
The Company’s assets measured at fair value using Level 2 inputs on a nonrecurring basis are a limited number of mortgage loans held for sale with some degree of impairment affecting their marketability and are reported at the lower of carrying value or fair value. When available, fair value is determined by reference to quoted prices in the secondary markets for such assets.

Level 3 – Valuation is typically derived from model-based techniques in which at least one significant input is unobservable and based on the Company’s own estimates about the assumptions that market participants would use to value the asset or liability.
The Company’s assets measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs on a recurring basis are as follows:
debt securities collateralized by residential real estate; and
a limited number of mortgage loans held for sale with some degree of impairment affecting their marketability and for which reference to quoted prices in the secondary markets is not available.
The Company’s assets measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs that are typically reported at the lower of carrying value or fair value on a nonrecurring basis are as follows:
inventory held and used;
inventory available for sale;
certain mortgage loans held for sale;
certain other mortgage loans; and
real estate owned.

___________________
(a)
Mortgage loans held for sale are reflected at fair value. Interest income earned on mortgage loans held for sale is based on contractual interest rates and included in other income. Mortgage loans held for sale at December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017 include $7.2 million and $5.6 million, respectively, of loans for which the Company elected the fair value option upon origination and did not sell into the secondary market. Mortgage loans held for sale totaling $2.2 million and $0.9 million were transferred to Level 3 during the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively, due to significant unobservable inputs used in determining the fair value of these loans. The fair value of these mortgage loans held for sale is generally calculated considering pricing in the secondary market and adjusted for the value of the underlying collateral, including interest rate risk, liquidity risk and prepayment risk. The Company plans to sell these loans as market conditions permit.
(b)
Fair value measurements of these derivatives represent changes in fair value, as calculated by reference to quoted prices for similar assets, and are reflected in the balance sheet as other assets or accrued expenses and other liabilities. Changes in the fair value of these derivatives are included in revenues in the consolidated statements of operations.

___________________
(a)
The fair values included in the table above represent only those assets whose carrying values were adjusted to fair value as a result of impairment in the respective period and were held at the end of the period.
(b)
In performing its impairment analysis of communities, discount rates ranging from 10% to 18% were used in the periods presented.
(c)
The fair value of inventory available for sale was determined based on recent offers received from outside third parties, comparable sales or actual contracts.
(d)
These mortgage loans have some degree of impairment affecting their marketability. When available, quoted prices in the secondary market are used to determine fair value (Level 2); otherwise, a cash flow valuation model is used to determine fair value (Level 3).
(e)
The fair value of other mortgage loans was determined based on the value of the underlying collateral.

For the financial assets and liabilities that the Company does not reflect at fair value, the following tables present both their respective carrying value and fair value at December 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017:

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)

NOTE O – SUBSEQUENT EVENT

On February 8, 2018, the Forestar land development segment sold a portion of its legacy assets, owned both directly and indirectly through ventures, for $232 million. The carrying value of these assets was included in land held for sale and investment in unconsolidated entities in the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2017. The transaction will not have a material impact on the Company’s fiscal 2018 earnings.



NOTE P – SUPPLEMENTAL GUARANTOR INFORMATION

All of the Company’s homebuilding senior notes and the homebuilding revolving credit facility are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, on a joint and several basis, by D.R. Horton, Inc. and other subsidiaries (Guarantor Subsidiaries). Each of the Guarantor Subsidiaries is 100% owned, directly or indirectly, by the Company. The Company’s subsidiaries associated with the Forestar land development operation, the financial services operations and certain other subsidiaries do not guarantee the Company’s senior notes or the revolving credit facility (collectively, Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries). In lieu of providing separate financial statements for the Guarantor Subsidiaries, consolidating condensed financial statements are presented below. Separate financial statements and other disclosures concerning the Guarantor Subsidiaries are not presented because management has determined that they are not material to investors.

The guarantees by a Guarantor Subsidiary will be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged upon: (1) the sale or other disposition of its common stock whereby it is no longer a subsidiary of the Company; (2) the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of its assets (other than to the Company or another Guarantor); (3) its merger or consolidation with an entity other than the Company or another Guarantor; or (4) depending on the provisions of the applicable indenture, either its (a) proper designation as an unrestricted subsidiary, (b) ceasing to guarantee any of the Company’s publicly traded debt securities, or (c) ceasing to guarantee any of the Company’s obligations under the revolving credit facility.

To conform to the current year presentation, the Company’s equity in income of subsidiaries in its condensed consolidating statement of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2016 is presented after income tax expense. As a result, the amounts of equity in income of subsidiaries and income tax expense were each reduced by $89.4 million in both the D.R. Horton, Inc. and Eliminations columns. This reclassification, which the Company determined was not material, had no impact on any financial statements or notes, except for the D.R. Horton, Inc. and Eliminations columns of the condensed consolidating statement of operations in this Supplemental Guarantor Information note. Prior period financial information will be presented similarly in the condensed consolidating statement of operations of future filings.
