Management Comments
“Following our record performance in 2021, we are off to a strong start to what we expect to be another year of profitable growth for our Company” stated Eric Lipar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LGI Homes.
“Despite supply chain headwinds, we delivered strong first quarter operational results. Our average sales price was a record $341,495, representing an increase of 23.9% over the first quarter of last year. Absorptions for the quarter came in at 6.0 closings per community, per month, significantly outperforming our historical average of 5.5. Additionally, we delivered record profitability in virtually all our key metrics, including our highest gross margin and adjusted gross margin in Company history and new first quarter records in pre-tax net income margin and net income margin.
“As expected, cost pressures and supply chain disruptions continue to impact our operations and we are working side-by-side with our trade partners and the municipalities where we operate to limit those impacts on our customers. Additionally, while demand for new homes continues to outpace supply, it is clear we are no longer operating in the frenzied atmosphere that dominated our industry at this time last year. However, despite early signs

that demand is moderating, the primary constraint to closing more homes continues to be extended cycle times and delays in the opening of new communities.
“Based on our performance to date, we are updating our full year guidance to reflect our new expectations of delivering an average sales price in a range between $335,000 and $350,000, gross margins between 27.0% and 29.0% and adjusted gross margins between 28.5% and 30.5%.”
Mr. Lipar concluded, “The upward revisions in our full year pricing and margin guidance demonstrate our positive outlook and continued confidence in LGI Homes’ ability to deliver significant profitability, sustainable growth and strong stockholder returns in 2022 and for years to come.”

Full Year 2022 Outlook
Subject to the caveats in the Forward-Looking Statements section of this press release, the Company updates its prior full year 2022 guidance. The Company now believes that its average sales price per home closed will be between $335,000 and $350,000, its gross margin as a percentage of home sales revenues will be between 27.0% and 29.0% and its adjusted gross margin (non-GAAP) as a percentage of home sales revenues will be between 28.5% and 30.5% with capitalized interest accounting for substantially all the difference between gross margin and adjusted gross margin as a percentage of home sales revenues.
This updated outlook assumes that general economic conditions, including input costs, materials, product and labor availability, interest rates and mortgage availability, in the remainder of 2022 are similar to those experienced to date in 2022 and that construction costs, availability of land, land development costs and overall absorption rates in the remainder of 2022 are consistent with the Company’s recent experience. In addition, this outlook assumes that governmental regulations relating to land development, home construction and COVID-19 are similar to those currently in place. Any further COVID-19 governmental restrictions on land development, home construction or home sales could negatively impact the Company’s ability to achieve this guidance.

The Company will host a conference call via live webcast for investors and other interested parties beginning at 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 (the “Earnings Call”). The Earnings Call will be hosted by Eric Lipar, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, and Charles Merdian, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.

Non-GAAP Measures
In addition to the results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company has provided information in this press release relating to adjusted gross margin, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share.
Adjusted Gross Margin
Adjusted gross margin is a non-GAAP financial measure used by management as a supplemental measure in evaluating operating performance. The Company defines adjusted gross margin as gross margin less capitalized interest and adjustments resulting from the application of purchase accounting included in the cost of sales. Management believes this information is useful because it isolates the impact that capitalized interest and purchase accounting adjustments have on gross margin. However, because adjusted gross margin information excludes capitalized interest and purchase accounting adjustments, which have real economic effects and could impact results, the utility of adjusted gross margin information as a measure of operating performance may be limited. In addition, other companies may not calculate adjusted gross margin information in the same manner that the Company does. Accordingly, adjusted gross margin information should be considered only as a supplement to gross margin information as a measure of the Company’s performance.
The following table reconciles adjusted gross margin to gross margin, which is the GAAP financial measure that management believes to be most directly comparable (dollars in thousands, unaudited):
