Douglas C. Yearley, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer, stated: “Our business continues to operate at a very high level. With strong demand and constrained industry-wide supply, we have continued to raise prices in excess of cost increases while setting all-time records for contracts and backlog in both units and dollars, and exceeding our guidance on nearly every metric.
“These exceptional results reflect the strategic expansion of our product lines and geographies, as well as structural changes we have made in how we operate to focus on driving sustainable increases in profit margins and return on equity. Based on the land we currently control, we are projecting community count growth to 340 communities at fiscal year end, with an additional 10% growth in fiscal 2022.
“We are encouraged by the continued strength of the housing market, which is supported by a long-term supply-demand imbalance, favorable demographics, especially the drive to home ownership among millennials, low mortgage rates, and the greater overall appreciation for one’s home that has emerged out of the pandemic. These market conditions, which we expect to continue into the foreseeable future, play to our strengths of creating luxury communities in desirable locations, offering a broad range of price points, and providing our home buyers the ability to personalize their homes.
“Based on the strength of our outlook for the remainder of this year and beyond, we are raising our fiscal year 2021 guidance on nearly all key metrics. We expect continued margin improvement through the second half of fiscal 2021 as well as in 2022, and we project return on beginning equity in excess of 20% in fiscal 2022.”
