NVR, Inc. Announces First Quarter Results

RESTON, Va., April 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR), one of the nation's largest homebuilding and mortgage banking companies, announced net income for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021 of $248.8 million, or $63.21 per diluted share.  Net income and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 increased 42% and 41%, respectively, when compared to 2020 first quarter net income of $175.7 million, or $44.96 per diluted share.  Consolidated revenues for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $2.04 billion, which increased 29% from $1.58 billion in the first quarter of 2020. 

Homebuilding

New orders in the first quarter of 2021 increased by 26% to 6,314 units, when compared to 5,015 units in the first quarter of 2020. The average sales price of new orders in the first quarter of 2021 was $410,500, an increase of 10% when compared with the first quarter of 2020.  The cancellation rate in the first quarter of 2021 was 10% compared to 21% in the first quarter of 2020.  Settlements in the first quarter of 2021 increased by 20% to 5,072 units, compared to 4,230 units in the first quarter of 2020. Our backlog of homes sold but not settled as of March 31, 2021 increased on a unit basis by 42% to 12,791 units and increased on a dollar basis by 51% to $5.20 billion when compared to the respective backlog unit and dollar balances as of  March 31, 2020.

Homebuilding revenues of $1.96 billion in the first quarter of 2021 increased by 26% compared to homebuilding revenues of $1.56 billion in the first quarter of 2020.  Gross profit margin in the first quarter of 2021 increased to 19.7%, compared to 16.8% in the first quarter of 2020.  Gross profit margin in the first quarter of 2020 was impacted by contract land deposit impairments of approximately $36.4 million, or 234 basis points of revenue.  Income before tax from the homebuilding segment totaled $253.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 69% when compared to the first quarter of 2020.

Mortgage Banking

Mortgage closed loan production in the first quarter of 2021 totaled $1.41 billion, an increase of 25% when compared to the first quarter of 2020.  Income before tax from the mortgage banking segment totaled $58.6 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 411% when compared to $11.5 million in the first quarter of 2020.  This increase was primarily attributable to increased mortgage volume in the first quarter of 2021, coupled with income in the first quarter of 2020 being adversely impacted by disruptions in the mortgage markets related to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in a  reduction in fair value of mortgage servicing rights.

Effective Tax Rate

Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was an expense of 20.3% as compared to a benefit of 8.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in the effective tax rate quarter over quarter is primarily attributable to recognizing a lower income tax benefit related to excess tax benefits from stock option exercises in the first quarter of 2021.  For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020 we recognized $17.4 million and $55.7 million, respectively, in such income tax benefits.

Other Matters - COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all facets of our business.  Our primary focus as we face this challenge is to do everything we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and trade partners.  Residential construction has been deemed an essential business in each of the markets we operate.  In each of our markets, we continue to operate in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local health department guidelines, which has resulted in significant changes to the way we conduct business. 

Although current demand for new homes is strong, there remains uncertainty regarding the extent and timing of disruption to our business that may result from COVID-19 and related governmental actions.  There is also uncertainty as to the effects of economic relief efforts on the U.S. economy, unemployment, consumer confidence, demand for our homes and the mortgage market, including lending standards and secondary mortgage markets. We are unable to predict the extent to which this will impact our operational and financial performance including the impact of future developments such as the duration and spread of COVID-19, corresponding governmental actions, and the impact of such on our employees, customers and trade partners.
