PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Green Brick Partners, Inc. (NYSE: GRBK) (“we,” “Green Brick” or the “Company”), today reported results for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023.

Green Brick finished 2023 with a record $6.14 diluted EPS and record total revenues of $1.8 billion.

For the fourth quarter, we delivered a record 825 homes, an increase of 13.5% due to shorter construction cycle times and strong demand. Our industry leading homebuilding gross margin was 31.4% for the quarter and 30.9% for the year. As a result, diluted EPS for the fourth quarter increased 34% year-over-year to $1.58 per share,” said Jim Brickman, CEO and Co-Founder.

Dallas-Fort Worth and Atlanta, our two primary markets, continue to rank very high among in-migration destination cities and are among the largest housing markets in the nation. Demand in these markets remained healthy throughout 2023, benefiting from favorable demographic shifts and strong employment. We continue to experience limited competition in our infill and infill-adjacent locations from new home builders as well as existing homeowners due to the ‘golden handcuffs’ of low-rate mortgages. As a result, our net new orders for the full year grew 70.1% year-over-year to 3,356, a record number for the company.”

Mr. Brickman added, “During the fourth quarter, we started 948 homes, which tripled the pace of 4Q22. Our home starts for the last nine months have now averaged almost 900 homes per quarter. At the same time, our fourth quarter cycle times were 35% shorter year-over-year. Our backlog of $555 million at the end of 2023 increased 50.4% year-over-year, which we believe provides us a great platform to start 2024.

Our industry leading results would not have been possible without a fantastic team effort combined with our financial discipline and investment grade balance sheet. At the end of the year, our net debt to total capital ratio was 11.4% and our total debt to total capital ratio was only 21.1%, one of the lowest among our public homebuilder peers. Our low leverage and cost of debt have enabled us to retain more profits to fund our growth. Our return on equity was 24.9% for the full year, which we believe reflects the strategic advantages of our markets, our rigorous land underwriting and continued success of our management and land development teams. As we look ahead, we believe we are well positioned to continue delivering one of the best risk-adjusted returns on equity in the industry.”

Mr. Brickman concluded, “We are excited to announce that Green Brick recently closed its first land acquisition in Houston, which will be co-developed with one of the largest public homebuilders in the country. Trophy will have 460 home sites in the community, and we expect to start home construction in 2025. Houston, the fourth most populous city in the U.S, continues to be one of the most active homebuilding markets in the county. We believe Trophy is in an excellent position to capture the demand for entry-level and move-up homes with their value-rich products. As demonstrated with Trophy’s meteoric growth in the Dallas-Fort Worth area the last five years, we believe Trophy has scalability in the Houston market as well.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, we utilize certain financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. We present these measures because we believe they and similar measures are useful to management and investors in evaluating our operating performance and financing structure. We also believe these measures facilitate the comparison of our operating performance and financing structure with other companies in our industry. Because these measures are not calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The following table represents the non-GAAP measure of adjusted homebuilding gross margin for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 and reconciles these amounts to homebuilding gross margin, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
