NOTES TO THE BALANCE SHEET

September 30, 2013

(Unaudited)

   

1. ORGANIZATION

Organization and Description of the Business

LGI Homes, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), was organized on July 9, 2013 as a holding company for the purposes of facilitating the initial public offering of its common stock (the “IPO”). At September 30, 2013, the Company had no material assets, no liabilities and had conducted no operations, and engaged only in activities in contemplation of the IPO. Costs incurred in connection with the IPO are the obligations of LGI Homes Group, LLC, LGI Homes Corporate, LLC and their affiliates, all of which were part of the reorganization transactions completed concurrent with the IPO (see Note 4).

LGI Homes, Inc.’s principal business is the development of communities and the design and construction of homes in Texas, Arizona, Florida and Georgia. Subsequent to September 30, 2013, LGI Homes Inc. commenced homebuilding operations in New Mexico.

   

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Separate statements of income and changes in stockholder’s equity have not been presented because there have been no operating activities or equity transactions of the Company as of September 30, 2013. A separate statement of cash flows has not been presented, as the only transactions impacting such statement as of September 30, 2013, are fully described below.

   

3. STOCKHOLDER’S EQUITY

The Company is authorized to issue 250,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share. On July 9, 2013, 1,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, were issued upon receipt of $1,000.

   

4. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On November 13, 2013, the Company completed the IPO and the reorganization of LGI Homes Group, LLC and LGI Homes Corporate, LLC and their consolidated subsidiaries and controlled variable interest entities, as well as LGI Homes II, LLC (formerly LGI Homes, Ltd.), LGI Homes — Sunrise Meadow, LLC (formerly LGI Homes — Sunrise Meadow, Ltd.), LGI Homes — Canyon Crossing, LLC (formerly LGI Homes — Canyon Crossing, Ltd.), and LGI Homes — Deer Creek, LLC, (collectively, “LGI Homes Group (Predecessor)”) into LGI Homes, Inc. A total of 10,003,358 shares of the Company’s common stock were issued to the owners of the entities that make up LGI Homes Group (Predecessor), including the issuance of 2,161,580 shares of the Company’s common stock to the non-controlling interests in a subsidiary of one of the entities. Immediate family members, a father and son, individually or jointly owned more than 50% of the voting ownership interest of each entity comprising LGI Homes Group (Predecessor). The LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) entities and the Company are under common management, operate in the same business, and are controlled by the family principals. Following the reorganization, the entities that comprise the LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company. These reorganization transactions will be accounted for at the transaction date as a combination of entities under common control.

Concurrent with the IPO, the Company acquired from GTIS Partners, LP and its affiliated entities (“GTIS”) all of GTIS’ equity interests in four unconsolidated joint ventures with LGI Homes Group (Predecessor), namely LGI-GTIS Holdings, LLC, LGI-GTIS Holdings II, LLC, LGI-GTIS Holdings III, LLC and LGI-GTIS Holdings IV, LLC (collectively, the “LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures”), in exchange for aggregate consideration of $41.4 million, consisting of a cash payment of approximately $36.9 million and 409,091 shares of the Company’s common stock valued at $4.5 million (based on the IPO price of $11.00 per share). As this transaction resulted in a change of control for the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures, the acquisition will be accounted for at the transaction date in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations, and the assets and liabilities of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures will be recorded at fair value.

1. BUSINESS

Organization and Description of the Business

LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) (the “Companies”) is a group of affiliated entities, under common control, which is engaged in the design and construction of homes in Texas, Arizona, Florida and Georgia as of September 30, 2013.

Effective November 13, 2013, the Companies were reorganized and became wholly-owned subsidiaries of LGI Homes, Inc. in connection with the closing of the initial public offering of LGI Homes, Inc.’s shares of common stock (the “IPO”).  The reorganization transactions will be accounted for as a combination of entities under common control. Refer to Note 13 for a discussion of subsequent event activity, including but not limited to the IPO, the reorganization transactions and the acquisition of joint venture partners’ interests by LGI Homes, Inc. in November 2013.

   

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation and Use of Estimates

The accompanying combined financial statements include the accounts of LGI Homes Group, LLC and LGI Homes Corporate, LLC and their consolidated subsidiaries and controlled variable interest entities, as well as LGI Homes, Ltd., LGI Homes—Sunrise Meadow, Ltd., LGI Homes—Canyon Crossing, Ltd., and LGI Homes—Deer Creek, LLC. Immediate family members, a father and son, individually or jointly own more than 50% of the voting ownership interest of each entity and have historically voted their interests in concert. The immediate family members are referred to hereinafter as the Principals. These entities have been combined for reporting purposes as they are under common management, operate in the same business, and are controlled by the Principals. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation and all intracompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in combination.

The accompanying unaudited condensed combined financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X and should be read in conjunction with the Companies’ audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012, which are included in the LGI Homes, Inc. prospectus dated November 6, 2013 that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on November 8, 2013. The accompanying unaudited condensed combined financial statements include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring entries) necessary for the fair presentation of the Companies’ results for the interim periods presented.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that 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 from those estimates, and these differences could have a significant impact on the financial statements. The significant accounting estimates include real estate inventory and cost of sales, impairment of real estate inventory and property and equipment, warranty reserves, loss contingencies, and accounting for variable interest entities. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2013. The balance sheet at December 31, 2012 has been derived from the audited combined financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements.

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Concentration of Credit Risk

Cash and cash equivalents are defined as cash on hand, demand deposits with financial institutions, and short-term liquid investments with an initial maturity date of less than three months. The Companies’ cash in demand deposit accounts may exceed federally insured limits.

Management monitors the cash balances in the Companies’ operating accounts and adjusts the cash balances as appropriate; however, these cash balances could be negatively impacted if the underlying financial institutions fail or are subject to other adverse conditions in the financial markets. To date, the Companies have experienced no loss or diminished access to cash in their operating accounts.

Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable consist primarily of proceeds due from title companies for sales closed prior to period end and are generally collected within a few days from closing.

Real Estate Inventory

Inventory consists of land, land under development, finished lots, sales offices, homes in progress, and completed homes. Inventory is stated at cost unless the carrying amount is determined not to be recoverable, in which case inventory is written down to fair value.

Land, development and other project costs, including interest and property taxes incurred during development and home construction, are capitalized to real estate inventory. Land development and other common costs that benefit the entire community, including field construction supervision and related direct overhead, are allocated to individual lots or homes, as appropriate. The costs of lots are transferred to homes in progress when home construction begins. Home construction costs and related carrying charges (principally capitalized interest and property taxes) are allocated to the cost of individual homes using the specific identification method. Costs that are not specifically identifiable to a home are allocated on a pro rata basis by taking costs and dividing by the total number of lots in the community. Management believes the allocation of costs on a pro rata basis approximates the allocation using relative sales value. Inventory costs for completed homes are expensed as cost of sales as homes are sold. Changes to estimated total development costs subsequent to initial home closings in a community are generally allocated to the remaining unsold lots and homes in the community on a pro rata basis.

The life cycle of a community generally ranges from two to five years, commencing with the acquisition of land, continuing through the land development phase, and concluding with the construction, sale, and delivery of homes. A constructed home is used as the community sales office during the life of the community and then sold. Actual individual community lives will vary based on the size of the community, the sales absorption rate, and whether the property was purchased as raw land or finished lots.

In accordance with the provisions of ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, real estate inventory is evaluated for indicators of impairment by each community during each reporting period. In conducting its review for indicators of impairment on a community level, management evaluates, among other things, the margins on homes that have been delivered, communities with slow moving inventory, projected margins on future home sales over the life of the community, and the estimated fair value of the land. For individual communities with indicators of impairment, additional analysis is performed to estimate the community’s undiscounted future cash flows. If the estimated undiscounted future cash flows are greater than the carrying value of the community group of assets, no impairment adjustment is required. If the undiscounted cash flows are less than the community’s carrying value, the asset group is impaired and is written down to its fair value. The Companies estimate the fair value of communities using a discounted cash flow model. As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the real estate inventory is stated at cost; there were no inventory impairment charges recorded during the three or nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012.

Capitalized Interest

Interest and other financing costs related to real estate inventory are capitalized as cost of inventory during community development and home construction activities and expensed in cost of sales as homes in the community are sold.

Pre-Acquisition Costs and Deposits

Amounts paid for land options, deposits on land purchase contracts, and other pre-acquisition costs are capitalized and classified as deposits to purchase. Upon execution of the purchase, these deposits are applied to the acquisition price of the land and recorded as a cost component of the land in real estate inventory. To the extent that any deposits are nonrefundable and the associated land acquisition process is terminated or no longer determined probable, the related deposits are charged to general and administrative expense. Management reviews the likelihood of the acquisition of contracted lots in conjunction with its periodic real estate impairment analysis.

Deferred Loan Costs

Deferred loan costs represent debt issuance costs and, depending on the nature and purpose of the loan, are capitalized to real estate inventory or amortized to interest expense using the straight line method which approximates the effective interest method.

Property and Equipment

Property, equipment and leasehold improvements are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation expense is recorded in general and administrative expenses. Upon sale or retirement, the costs and related accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the respective accounts and any resulting gain or loss is included in other income, net. Depreciation is generally computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, ranging from 3 to 7 years. Leasehold improvements are depreciated over the shorter of the asset life or the term of the lease. Maintenance and repair costs are expensed as incurred.

Impairments of long-lived assets are determined periodically when indicators of impairment are present. If such indicators are present, the determination of the amount of impairment is based on judgments as to the future undiscounted operating cash flows to be generated from these assets throughout their remaining estimated useful lives. If these undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying amount of the related asset, impairment is recognized for the excess of the carrying value over its fair value. There were no impairments of property, equipment and leasehold improvements recorded during the three or nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012.

Investments in Joint Ventures and Unconsolidated Variable Interest Entities (VIEs)

The Companies function as the managing member of certain joint ventures conducting homebuilding activities. In accordance with ASC 810, Consolidation, management has assessed whether these entities may be VIEs. The Companies have variable interests in the joint venture arrangements that it manages, and these joint ventures have been determined to be VIEs because the members of the joint ventures, as a group, have insufficient equity at risk without further capital contributions. The Companies’ rights as well as the rights held by the other joint venture members have been evaluated to determine the primary beneficiary of the VIE, including the extent of substantive participating rights and control of activities that most significantly affect its economic performance. Such activities include, but are not limited to, the ability to determine the budget and scope of land development work, if any; the ability to control financing decisions for the VIE; and the ability to acquire additional land into the VIE. If the Companies are not able to control the significant decisions, the Companies are not considered the primary beneficiary of the VIE. If the Companies are determined to be the primary beneficiary of the VIE, the entity is consolidated in the accompanying combined financial statements.

The Companies have investments in four joint ventures where the Companies and the other joint venture members have been deemed to have joint control and the Companies are not the primary beneficiary since all major decisions require both parties’ consent. Accordingly, the Companies’ interests in these joint ventures are accounted for using the equity method and its share of the joint ventures’ net earnings is included in income from unconsolidated joint ventures and investments in unconsolidated joint ventures. Distributions received are credited against the related investment in the joint venture.

LGI HOMES GROUP (PREDECESSOR)

In addition, the Companies have interests in two VIE’s (LGI Homes – Sterling Lakes, LLC and LGI Fund III Holdings, LLC) where it has been determined that the Companies are the primary beneficiary. In addition to the Companies serving as the managing member of these entities, the Principals of the Companies also held the general partner controlling interests in the non-managing members of the VIEs. As a result, the Companies combined with the Principals’ related party interests have the power to direct all significant activities of the VIEs, and have exposure to the risks and rewards of the VIEs, based on the division of income and loss pursuant to the joint venture agreement and the Companies’ ownership in the joint ventures. These two VIEs have been consolidated in the accompanying combined financial statements.

Management evaluates the Companies’ investments in unconsolidated entities for indicators of impairment during each reporting period. A series of operating losses of an investee or other factors may indicate that a decrease in value of the Companies’ investment in the unconsolidated entity has occurred which is other-than-temporary. The amount of impairment recognized is the excess of the investment’s carrying amount over its estimated fair value. No impairment charges have been recorded related to investments in unconsolidated entities during the three or nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012.

Insurance Costs and Reserves

The Companies have deductible limits under workers’ compensation, automobile and general liability insurance policies, and record expense and liabilities for the estimated costs of potential claims for construction defects. The excess liability limits are $2 million per occurrence and in the aggregate annually and apply in excess of automobile liability, employer’s liability under workers compensation, and general liability policies. The Companies generally require subcontractors and design professionals to indemnify the Companies for liabilities arising from their work, subject to certain limitations.

Warranty Reserves

Future direct warranty costs are accrued and charged to cost of sales in the period when the related home is sold. The Companies’ warranty liability is based upon historical warranty cost experience and is adjusted as appropriate to reflect qualitative risks associated with the types of homes built, the geographic areas in which they are built, and potential impacts of the Companies’ continued expansion. The Companies’ warranty reserves include amounts expected to be incurred under the warranty agreement with the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures.

Warranty reserves are reviewed quarterly to assess the reasonableness and adequacy and make adjustments to the balance of the pre-existing reserves, as needed, to reflect changes in trends and historical data as information becomes available.

Home Sales

In accordance with ASC 360 – 20, Real Estate Sales, revenues from home sales are recorded at the time each home sale is closed, title and possession are transferred to the buyer, and there is no significant continuing involvement of the Companies with the home. Home sales proceeds are generally received from the title company within a few days from closing. Home sales are reported net of sales discounts and incentives granted to home buyers, which are primarily seller-paid closing costs.

Cost of Sales

As discussed under Real Estate Inventory, above, cost of sales for homes closed include the construction costs of each home and allocable land acquisition and land development costs, capitalized interest, and other related common costs (both incurred and estimated to be incurred).

Selling and Commission Costs

Sales commissions are paid and expensed based on homes sold. Other residual selling costs are expensed in the period incurred.

Advertising Costs

Advertising and direct mail costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising and direct mail costs were $811,746 and $412,188 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $1,888,157 and $1,223,296 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Income Taxes

The Companies consist of limited liability companies and limited partnerships, all of which are treated as partnerships for income tax purposes and federal income taxes on taxable income or losses realized by the Companies are the obligation of the individual members or partners. However, the Companies are subject to certain state taxes and fees, including the Texas margin tax, where applicable. There are no significant deferred income taxes related to state income taxes.

Fair Value Measurement of Financial Instruments

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements, defines fair value as “the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date” within an entity’s principal market, if any. The principal market is the market in which the reporting entity would sell the asset or transfer the liability with the greatest volume and level of activity, regardless of whether it is the market in which the entity will ultimately transact for a particular asset or liability or if a different market is potentially more advantageous. Accordingly, this exit price concept may result in a fair value that differs from the transaction price or market price of the asset or liability.

Under GAAP, the fair value hierarchy prioritizes inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. Fair value measurements should maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs, where possible. Observable inputs are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity. Unobservable inputs may be needed to measure fair value in situations where there is little or no market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date and are developed based on the best information available in the circumstances, which could include the reporting entity’s own judgments about the assumptions market participants would utilize in pricing the asset or liability.

The Companies utilize fair value measurements to account for certain items and account balances within its combined financial statements. Fair value measurements may also be utilized on a nonrecurring basis, such as for the impairment of long-lived assets. The fair value of financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and notes payable, approximate their carrying amounts due to the short term nature of these instruments. In addition, as of September 30, 2013, the notes payable have a floating interest rate, which increases or decreases with market interest rates, and is subject to an interest rate floor.

The LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures are each engaged in homebuilding and land development activities. GTIS Partners, LP and affiliated entities (collectively “GTIS”) are joint venture members in these entities. The LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures are discussed collectively in these financial statements due to the similarity of the joint venture agreements and other aspects of the entities. Management of each of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures is vested in the members, being the Companies and GTIS. The Companies are considered the managing members of these entities. The managing member has the responsibility and authority to operate the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures on a day-to-day basis subject to the operating budget and business plan, which is approved by both members. The Companies use their sales, development and operations teams to support operations and have significant influence even though the respective joint venture members have been deemed to have joint control under ASC 810. All major decisions require both members’ consent. Major decisions include, but are not limited to: the acquisition or disposition of a project; capital contributions; and changes, updates or amendments to the operating budget or business plan. Generally, the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures have not obtained construction financing from outside lenders, but have financed their activities primarily through equity contributions from each of the joint venture members.

Profits are allocated to the members of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures based on the predetermined formulas specified in the joint venture agreements for the allocation of distributable cash. The GTIS member and the Companies are allocated 85% and 15% of the profits, respectively, (the “Sharing Percentages”) until such time as the members receive cash distributions equal to their initial capital investment plus, generally, a 15% internal rate of return (“First Tier Return”). Subsequent allocations of distributable cash and profits include a priority allocation of approximately 20% to 40% to the Companies’ member, depending on the amount of cash distributions achieved over the life of the joint venture. Upon liquidation of the Companies’ interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures, the Companies’ member is required to restore any deficit balance in its capital account as provided for in the respective joint venture agreements. Therefore, the Companies’ maximum exposure to loss as a result of involvement in each LGI/GTIS Joint Venture is the amount of the Companies’ equity in such joint venture ($5.1 million on a combined basis for the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures at September 30, 2013) plus the potential to fund any deficit capital balance upon liquidation; management does not consider it likely that the Companies would have deficit capital balance at liquidation. Performance of the Companies under the joint venture agreements is guaranteed by the Companies, including LGI Homes, Ltd., LGI Homes – Sunrise Meadow, Ltd., LGI Homes – Canyon Crossing, Ltd., and LGI Homes – Deer Creek, LLC, and is secured by a first lien and security interest in the Companies’ interest and the right to receive any distributions from the respective LGI/GTIS Joint Venture.

Since the internal rates of return necessary to receive a higher proportion of distributions are calculated over the life of each LGI/GTIS Joint Venture and both the timing and amount of future contributions and distributions will affect the Companies’ share of distributions, there is no certainty that the Companies will receive greater than 15% of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures’ distributions. Therefore, the Companies record their investments in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures at 15% of each venture’s capital balance and recognize the incremental amounts due to the Companies as a result of reaching the higher distribution tiers only when received.

As of December 31, 2012, none of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures had achieved the First-Tier Return, therefore there were no priority allocations paid to the Companies’ member in 2012. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, LGI-GTIS Holdings, LLC achieved the First-Tier Return and began paying the priority allocation to the Companies’ member, and during the three months ended September 30, 2013, achieved the Second-Tier and Third-Tier Return increasing the priority allocation to the Companies’ member to approximately 40%. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, LGI-GTIS Holdings II, LLC and LGI-GTIS Holdings III, LLC also achieved the First-Tier Return and began paying the priority allocation to the Companies’ member. As of September 30,

Consolidated Joint Ventures

The accompanying Combined Balance Sheets reflect two consolidated joint ventures, engaged in homebuilding and land development activities, which have been determined to be VIEs and the Companies have been deemed to be the primary beneficiary under ASC 810.

Profits are allocated to the members for the consolidated joint ventures based on the predetermined formulas specified in the joint venture agreements for the allocation of distributable cash. The non-managing members and the Companies are allocated 85% and 15% of the profits, respectively, (the “Sharing Percentages”) until such time as the members receive cash distributions equal to their initial capital investment plus, generally, a 15% internal rate of return (“First Tier Return”). Subsequent allocations of distributable cash and profits include a priority allocation of approximately 20% to 40% to the Companies’ member, depending on the amount of cash distributions achieved over the life of the joint venture.

As of December 31, 2012, the Companies’ construction and development activities were financed through credit facilities generally providing for secured notes for the construction of individual homes and/or completed lots, with maturities ranging from 9 – 12 months from the borrowing date.

As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, LIBOR was 0.25% and 0.31%, respectively. Based on the terms of the variable rate notes payable, the interest amounts paid during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, were based on the interest rate floor terms.

The Companies’ credit agreements generally require the borrower and guarantor to maintain certain net worth, liquidity and leverage ratios and, in some cases, include cross-default provisions and restrictive covenants related to transfer of control of the borrower. The Companies obtained a waiver from the bank to complete the reorganization transactions and the IPO (see Note 13). The Companies may borrow additional amounts under the credit facilities with Texas Capital Bank, N.A. for new home starts through the facility expiration date which are subject to the lender’s final approval of each project and limitations on the borrowings attributable to certain markets, speculative home building, vacant lots, and acquisition and development funding. The Companies’ current homebuilding operations are primarily funded by borrowings from one primary bank or with equity. The availability of credit to fund ongoing and future operations could be negatively impacted if the underlying financial institution fails or is subject to other adverse conditions in the financial markets. To date, the Companies have experienced no loss or lack of access to cash in their credit facilities with the bank.

Participation Obligations

The development and construction financing provided to the Companies by mezzanine lenders have included participation fee provisions based on a percentage of the home sale prices realized from the funded projects. The participation fees are paid at the time the homes are sold. The participation fees have been recorded to deferred loan costs and are amortized to interest expense, and considered in the Companies’ determination of capitalized interest discussed further below, over the term of the respective loan.

As of December 31, 2012, LGI Homes—Sunrise Meadow, Ltd. had a participation fee obligation for the remaining 264 unsold lots of the 974 total community lots; the related loan matured during April 2012.

Management believes that these claims include usual obligations incurred by real estate developers in the normal course of business. In the opinion of management, these matters will not have a material effect on the Companies’ combined financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

The Companies have provided unsecured environmental indemnities to certain lenders and joint venture members. In each case, the Companies have performed due diligence on the potential environmental risks including obtaining an independent environmental review from outside environmental consultants. These indemnities obligate the Companies to reimburse the guaranteed parties for damages related to environmental matters. There is no term or damage limitation on these indemnities; however, if an environmental matter arises, the Companies may have recourse against other previous owners. Management of the Companies is not aware of any environmental claims or occurrences and has recorded no reserves for environmental matters.

Land Deposits

The Companies have land purchase option contracts, generally through cash deposits, for the right to purchase land or lots at a future point in time with predetermined terms. The Companies do not have title to the property and obligations with respect to the option contracts are generally limited to the forfeiture of the related nonrefundable cash deposits. The following is a summary of the Companies’ land purchase deposits and option contracts included in pre-acquisition costs and deposits:

The surety bonds are guaranteed by one of the Family Principals. Management of the Companies does not believe that draws upon these bonds, if any, will have a material effect on the Companies’ combined financial position, results of operations, or cash flows. The Companies had no letters of credit outstanding at September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

12. SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Companies operate one principal homebuilding business which is organized by region and division. Initial operations were conducted in the Central region (Texas division), expanding into the Western region (Arizona division) during 2011 and the Eastern region (Georgia division and Florida division) during 2012. During August 2013, the Eastern region had its first home closings.

In accordance with ASC 280, Segment Reporting, operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision-maker (CODM) in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

The Companies have determined that they have three operating segments as of September 30, 2013, the Central region, the Western region and the Eastern region. The Central region is the largest region comprising greater than 80% of total home sales revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

The operating segments qualify for aggregation as one reporting segment. In determining the reportable segment, the Companies concluded that all operating segments have similar economic and other characteristics, including similar home floor plans, average selling prices, gross margin, production construction processes, suppliers, subcontractors, regulatory environments, customer type, and underlying demand and supply.

The CODM primarily evaluates performance based on the number of homes sold, gross margin and net income. Each operating segment follows the same accounting policies as the Companies and is managed by the Companies’ management team. The Companies have no inter-segment sales, as all sales are to external customers.

   

13. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Initial Public Offering and Reorganization Transactions

In November 2013, LGI Homes, Inc. completed the initial public offering of its common stock (the “IPO”). In the IPO, LGI Homes, Inc. issued and sold 10,350,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $11.00 per share and received net proceeds of $102.7 million after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of $8.0 million and other offering expenses of approximately $3.2 million.

In conjunction with the IPO, the Companies’ owners contributed their equity interests in the various entities combined in the accompanying financial statements of LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) to LGI Homes, Inc. in exchange for shares of LGI Homes, Inc. common stock. LGI Homes, Inc. became the parent of the Companies and accounted for the reorganization transactions as an exchange of shares between entities under common control at historical cost in a manner similar to a pooling of interests. After the reorganization transactions, the ownership percentage of each LGI Homes, Inc. common stockholder was equivalent to its ownership percentage in the Companies based on the relative fair values of the respective entities. A total of 10,003,358 shares of LGI Homes, Inc. common stock were issued to the owners of the Companies in connection with the reorganization transactions, including the issuance of 2,161,580 shares of common stock to LGI Fund III Holdings, LLC, a consolidated variable interest entity of the Companies. Since the Companies controlled LGI Fund III Holdings, LLC before and after the IPO, LGI Homes, Inc. has accounted for this transaction as an equity transaction.  Following the reorganization transactions, the Companies are wholly-owned subsidiaries of LGI Homes, Inc. The Companies’ owners’ equity at September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, has not been retroactively restated for the reorganization transactions described above.

In November 2013, prior to the closing of the IPO and the reorganization transactions described above, the entities comprising LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) distributed to their owners approximately $5.8 million to pay estimated federal income taxes on earnings for the period from January 1, 2013 through November 13, 2013. In addition, in November 2013, prior to the closing of the IPO, LGI Homes, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership, was converted into LGI Homes II, LLC, a Texas limited liability company; LGI Homes Sunrise Meadow, Ltd. was converted into LGI HomesSunrise Meadow, LLC; and LGI Homes Canyon Crossing, Ltd. was converted into LGI HomesCanyon Crossing, LLC.

ITEM 2.     MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

For purposes of this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation, references to “we,” “us,” “our” or similar terms when used in a historical context refer to LGI Homes Group (Predecessor). When used prospectively, those terms refer to LGI Homes, Inc. and its subsidiaries, including LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) and the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures subsequent to the completion of the initial public offering of LGI Homes, Inc. See Note 13, “Subsequent Events – Initial Public Offering and Reorganization Transactions” to our unaudited combined financial statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for more information regarding the reorganization transactions and the initial public offering.

Prior to the completion of the initial public offering of common stock of LGI Homes, Inc. on November 13, 2013 (the “IPO”), LGI Homes Group (Predecessor) owned a 15% equity interest in and managed the day-to-day operations of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures. Concurrent with the IPO, LGI Homes, Inc. acquired all of GTIS’s equity interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures. In our historical financial statements, our predecessor’s interest in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures have been accounted for using the equity method and our predecessor’s share of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures’ net earnings are included in income from unconsolidated joint ventures. Effective November 13, 2013, we own all of the equity interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures and will account for them on a consolidated basis after such date rather than by using the equity method.

Business Overview

We are a residential homebuilder engaged in the design and construction of homes in Texas, Arizona, Florida and Georgia. Subsequent to September 30, 2013, we commenced homebuilding operations in New Mexico.

In 2003, we commenced homebuilding operations targeting the entry-level market. After successfully establishing ourselves as homebuilders in the Houston market, we demonstrated that our operating model could flourish in additional markets including Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin and Phoenix. After conducting extensive due diligence and market studies, we entered the Atlanta, Orlando and Tucson markets in 2013. Our expansion into Florida leveraged our experience managing one of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures’ entry into the Tampa market in 2012.  

We offer homes at affordable prices in affordable locations and by utilizing a well-established sales and marketing approach, a culture of customer service excellence and a highly efficient construction process. Many of our marketing efforts are focused on converting renters of apartments and single-family homes into homeowners.

Key Results

Key financial results as of and for the three months ended September 30, 2013, as compared to the same period in 2012, were as follows:

 

·

Homes closed increased 44.6% to 240 homes from 166 homes with an increase in the average selling price of our homes of 12.1% to $154,313. Homes closed by the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures increased 35.1% to 208 homes from 154 homes, with an increase in the average selling price of 14.1% to $148,855.

 

·

Home sales revenues increased 62.1% to $37.0 million from $22.9 million. The home sales revenues of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures increased 54.1% to $31.0 million from $20.1 million.

 

·

Gross margin as a percentage of home sales revenues remained constant at 26.9%.

 

·

Total owned and controlled lots increased 208.0% to 9,342 lots at September 30, 2013 from 3,033 lots at December 31, 2012.

Recent Developments

Initial public offering

On November 13, 2013, we completed the initial public offering of our common stock (the “IPO”). In the IPO, we issued and sold 10,350,000 shares of our common stock, including 1,350,000 shares pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, at a price to the public of $11.00 per share. Shares of our common stock are listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the ticker symbol “LGIH.” The net proceeds to us from the IPO were $102.7 million, of which we used approximately $36.9 million to pay the cash consideration to GTIS to acquire all of its interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures. We expect to use the remainder of the net proceeds for working capital and for general corporate purposes, including the acquisition of land, development of lots and construction of homes.

Reorganization - LGI Transactions

Concurrent with the IPO, LGI Homes, Inc. completed a series of reorganization transactions, whereby LGI Homes, Inc. acquired all the equity interests of LGI Homes Group, LLC, LGI Homes Corporate, LLC, LGI Homes II, LLC, LGI Homes—Sunrise Meadow, LLC, LGI Homes—Canyon Crossing, LLC, LGI Homes—Deer Creek, LLC and their subsidiaries in exchange for 10,003,358 shares of LGI Homes, Inc. common stock. As a result of the reorganization transactions, the entities which made up our predecessor became our wholly-owned subsidiaries. We collectively refer to the transactions described in this paragraph as the “LGI Transaction.”

GTIS Transaction

Prior to the IPO, our predecessor owned a 15% equity interest in and managed the day-to-day operations of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures. Concurrent with the IPO, we acquired from GTIS all of GTIS’ equity interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures, in exchange for aggregate consideration of $41.4 million, consisting of a cash payment of approximately $36.9 million and 409,091 shares of our common stock valued at $4.5 million (based on the IPO price of $11.00 per share). We refer to these transactions as the “GTIS Transaction.”

We will use purchase accounting for the GTIS Transaction. Since we own all of the equity interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures, we will prospectively account for them on a consolidated basis rather than by using the equity method. We are in the process of determining the appropriate purchase accounting adjustments as of the transaction date. “Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information” was presented in the prospectus relating to the IPO dated November 6, 2013 and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 8, 2013 which included estimates based on a preliminary valuation date of June 30, 2013 for certain adjustments expected to be made as a result of this application of purchase accounting, including (i) recording the net tangible assets of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures at fair value, (ii) recording goodwill for the excess of the GTIS Transaction purchase price and the estimated fair value of our equity interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures over the identifiable net tangible assets of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures, (iii) recording a gain as a result of the re-measurement of our equity interests in the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures at fair value, and (iv) recording deferred income tax related to the purchase accounting adjustments. The components of the Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information, and specifically the real estate inventory and LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures enterprise value, could change significantly from amounts presented in the Registration Statement based on the preliminary valuation date of June 30, 2013, due to the normal operations of the LGI/GTIS Joint Ventures from the preliminary valuation date of June 30, 2013 through the transaction date, November 13, 2013, primarily due to changes in the quantities of finished lots, homes in progress and completed homes and homes closed.

Revolving Credit Facility

As of October 23, 2013, Texas Capital Bank, N.A. approved adding LGI Fund III Holdings, LLC and its subsidiaries as additional co-borrowers under our secured revolving credit facility. In addition, we have agreed on terms to amend the facility to increase the available outstanding balances to $50.0 million given certain criteria. The increase will include a provision to replace the existing guarantors with LGI Homes, Inc.

Tax Distributions

In November 2013, prior to the IPO, the entities comprising our predecessor distributed to their owners approximately $5.8 million to pay estimated federal income taxes on their earnings for the period from January 1, 2013 through November 13, 2013.
