D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
March 31, 2015



NOTE A – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited, consolidated financial statements include the accounts of D.R. Horton, Inc. and all of its 100% owned, majority-owned and controlled subsidiaries (which are collectively referred to as the Company, unless the context otherwise requires). All significant intercompany accounts, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair statement have been included. These financial statements do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2014.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions 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 materially from those estimates.

Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made in the prior year financial statements to conform to classifications used in the current year. Cash balances of the Company's captive insurance subsidiary, which are expected to be used to fund the captive insurance subsidiary's operations and pay future anticipated legal claims, have been correctly presented within homebuilding cash and cash equivalents rather than homebuilding other assets. These balances were $42.0 million and $40.9 million at March 31, 2014 and September 30, 2013, respectively. The statement of cash flows for the six months ended March 31, 2014, including the statement of cash flows of the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries as reflected in Note O, have been revised to reflect this correction. As other prior period financial information is presented in future filings, the Company will similarly revise its financial statements in such filings.

Cash balances of the Company's captive insurance subsidiary, which were $40.5 million and $43.3 million at March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, respectively, are included in homebuilding cash and cash equivalents in the consolidated balance sheets.

Seasonality

Historically, the homebuilding industry has experienced seasonal fluctuations; therefore, the operating results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015 or subsequent periods.

Variable Interests

The Company enters into land and lot option purchase contracts to acquire land or lots for the construction of homes. Under these contracts, the Company will fund a stated deposit in consideration for the right, but not the obligation, to purchase land or lots at a future point in time with predetermined terms. Under the terms of many of the option purchase contracts, the option deposits are not refundable in the event the Company elects to terminate the contract.

D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
March 31, 2015


Option purchase contracts can result in the creation of a variable interest in the entity holding the land parcel under option. There were no variable interest entities reported in the consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014 because the Company determined it did not control the activities that most significantly impact the variable interest entity’s economic performance and it did not have an obligation to absorb losses of or the right to receive benefits from the entity. The maximum exposure to losses related to the Company’s variable interest entities is limited to the amounts of the Company’s related option deposits. At March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, the amount of option deposits related to these contracts totaled $60.4 million and $55.7 million, respectively, and are included in homebuilding other assets in the consolidated balance sheets.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2014-04, “Receivables - Troubled Debt Restructurings by Creditors,” which was revised in August 2014. ASU 2014-04 applies to all creditors who obtain physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan in satisfaction of a receivable. The guidance clarifies when an in substance repossession or foreclosure of the property has occurred and helps determine when a creditor should derecognize a loan receivable and recognize real estate property. ASU 2014-14 applies to creditors that hold government-guaranteed mortgage loans and requires that these loans, including those guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Veterans Affairs (VA), be derecognized and that a separate other receivable be recognized upon foreclosure if certain conditions are met. Upon foreclosure, the separate other receivable should be measured based on the amount of the loan balance expected to be recovered from the guarantor. The guidance in this ASU is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2015 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers,” which is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance. The core principle of this guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue for the transfer of goods or services equal to the amount that it expects to be entitled to receive for those goods or services. The guidance is expected to be effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018 and allows for full retrospective or modified retrospective methods of adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-12, “Compensation - Stock Compensation,” which states that a performance target in a share-based payment that affects vesting and that could be achieved after the requisite service period should be accounted for as a performance condition. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2016 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements - Going Concern,” which provides guidance about management's responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about the entity's ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. This guidance is intended to reduce the diversity in the timing and content of footnote disclosures. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning with its fiscal year ending September 30, 2017 and is not expected to have any impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-02, “Consolidation,” which changes the analysis that a reporting entity must perform to determine whether it should consolidate certain types of legal entities. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2016 and is not expected to have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, “Interest - Imputation of Interest,” which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability. This new guidance is a change from the current treatment of recording debt issuance costs as an asset representing a deferred charge, and is consistent with the accounting treatment for debt discounts. The guidance, which requires retrospective application, is effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2016, but early adoption is allowed. The Company is currently evaluating this guidance, which will not have a material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE B – SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Company is a national homebuilder that is primarily engaged in the acquisition and development of land and the construction and sale of residential homes, with operations in 79 markets in 27 states across the United States. The Company designs, builds and sells single-family detached homes on lots it develops and on fully developed lots purchased ready for home construction. To a lesser extent, the Company also builds and sells attached homes, such as town homes, duplexes, triplexes and condominiums. Periodically, the Company sells land and lots to other developers and homebuilders where it has excess land and lot positions. The homebuilding segments generate most of their revenues from the sale of completed homes, and to a lesser extent from the sale of land and lots.

The Company’s financial services segment provides mortgage financing and title agency services primarily to the Company’s homebuilding customers. The Company sells substantially all of the mortgages it originates and the related servicing rights to third-party purchasers. The financial services segment generates its revenues from originating and selling mortgages and collecting fees for title insurance agency and closing services.

The Company’s 38 homebuilding operating divisions and its financial services operation are its operating segments. The homebuilding operating segments are aggregated into six reporting segments and the financial services operating segment is its own reporting segment.

Expenses maintained at the corporate level consist primarily of interest and property taxes, which are capitalized and amortized to cost of sales or expensed directly, and the expenses related to operating the Company’s corporate office. The amortization of capitalized interest and property taxes is allocated to each segment based on the segment’s cost of sales, while those expenses associated with the corporate office are allocated to each segment based on the segment’s inventory balances.

NOTE C – INVENTORY

At March 31, 2015, the Company reviewed the performance and outlook for all of its land inventories and communities for indicators of potential impairment and performed detailed impairment evaluations and analyses when necessary. The Company performed detailed impairment evaluations of communities and land inventories with a combined carrying value of $424.2 million and recorded impairment charges of $8.1 million during the second quarter to reduce the carrying value of impaired communities to their estimated fair value. The impairment charges were primarily related to a strategic decision to sell a parcel of land in the Southeast region. During the six months ended March 31, 2015, impairment charges totaled $12.0 million. There were $2.3 million of impairment charges recorded in the three and six months ended March 31, 2014.

During the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company wrote off $4.4 million and $2.1 million, respectively, of earnest money deposits and pre-acquisition costs related to land option contracts that are expected to be terminated. During the six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company wrote off $6.6 million and $4.8 million, respectively, of these deposits and costs.

Homebuilding:

The Company has a $975 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility with an uncommitted accordion feature that could increase the size of the facility to $1.25 billion, subject to certain conditions and availability of additional bank commitments. The facility also provides for the issuance of letters of credit with a sublimit equal to approximately 50% of the revolving credit commitment. Letters of credit issued under the facility reduce the available borrowing capacity. The interest rate on borrowings under the revolving credit facility may be based on either the Prime Rate or London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus an applicable margin, as defined in the credit agreement governing the facility. The maturity date of the facility is September 7, 2019. At March 31, 2015, the Company had $175.0 million of borrowings outstanding at a 1.9% annual interest rate and $90.3 million of letters of credit issued under the revolving credit facility.

The Company's revolving credit facility imposes restrictions on its operations and activities, including requiring the maintenance of a minimum level of tangible net worth, a maximum allowable ratio of debt to tangible net worth and a borrowing base restriction if the Company's ratio of debt to tangible net worth exceeds a certain level. These covenants are measured as defined in the credit agreement governing the facility and are reported to the lenders quarterly. A failure to comply with these financial covenants could allow the lending banks to terminate the availability of funds under the revolving credit facility or cause any outstanding borrowings to become due and payable prior to maturity. In addition, the credit agreement governing the facility and the indentures governing the senior notes impose restrictions on the creation of secured debt and liens. At March 31, 2015, the Company was in compliance with all of the covenants, limitations and restrictions of its revolving credit facility and public debt obligations.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
March 31, 2015



The Company has an automatically effective universal shelf registration statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in September 2012, registering debt and equity securities that the Company may issue from time to time in amounts to be determined. The Company anticipates filing a new universal shelf registration statement that will register debt and equity securities prior to the expiration of its current universal shelf registration statement in September 2015.

In February 2015, the Company issued $500 million principal amount of 4.0% senior notes due February 15, 2020, with interest payable semi-annually. The notes represent unsecured obligations of the Company. The annual effective interest rate of the senior notes after giving effect to the amortization of financing costs is 4.2%. On February 15, 2015, the Company repaid the remaining $157.7 million principal amount of its 5.25% senior notes which were due on that date.

Effective August 1, 2014, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $500 million of the Company's debt securities effective through July 31, 2015. All of the $500 million authorization was remaining at March 31, 2015.

Financial Services:

The Company’s mortgage subsidiary, DHI Mortgage, has a mortgage repurchase facility that is accounted for as a secured financing. The mortgage repurchase facility provides financing and liquidity to DHI Mortgage by facilitating purchase transactions in which DHI Mortgage transfers eligible loans to the counterparties against the transfer of funds by the counterparties, thereby becoming purchased loans. DHI Mortgage then has the right and obligation to repurchase the purchased loans upon their sale to third-party purchasers in the secondary market or within specified time frames from 45 to 120 days in accordance with the terms of the mortgage repurchase facility. In February 2015, the mortgage repurchase facility was amended and its maturity date was extended to February 26, 2016. Additionally, new commitments were obtained from banks which increased the total capacity of the facility to $400 million. The amendment allows for the capacity of the facility to be increased further, without requiring additional commitments, from $400 million to $450 million during the last five days of any fiscal quarter and the first twenty-five days of the following fiscal quarter. Additionally, the capacity of the facility can be increased to $550 million subject to the availability of additional commitments.

As of March 31, 2015, $485.6 million of mortgage loans held for sale with a collateral value of $469.6 million were pledged under the mortgage repurchase facility. As a result of advance paydowns totaling $72.1 million, DHI Mortgage had an obligation of $397.5 million outstanding under the mortgage repurchase facility at March 31, 2015 at a 2.4% annual interest rate.

The mortgage repurchase facility is not guaranteed by D.R. Horton, Inc. or any of the subsidiaries that guarantee the Company’s homebuilding debt. The facility contains financial covenants as to the mortgage subsidiary’s minimum required tangible net worth, its maximum allowable ratio of debt to tangible net worth and its minimum required liquidity. These covenants are measured and reported monthly. At March 31, 2015, DHI Mortgage was in compliance with all of the conditions and covenants of the mortgage repurchase facility.

NOTE E – CAPITALIZED INTEREST

The Company capitalizes interest costs incurred to inventory during active development and construction (active inventory). Capitalized interest is charged to cost of sales as the related inventory is delivered to the buyer. During periods in which the Company’s active inventory is lower than its debt level, a portion of the interest incurred is immediately reflected as interest expense. Since the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company's active inventory has exceeded its debt level, and all interest incurred has been capitalized to inventory.

The following table summarizes the Company’s interest costs incurred, capitalized and expensed during the three and six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014:

NOTE F – MORTGAGE LOANS

Mortgage Loans Held for Sale
Mortgage loans held for sale consist primarily of single-family residential loans collateralized by the underlying property. At March 31, 2015, mortgage loans held for sale had an aggregate fair value of $517.6 million and an aggregate outstanding principal balance of $502.0 million. At September 30, 2014, mortgage loans held for sale had an aggregate fair value of $476.9 million and an aggregate outstanding principal balance of $466.6 million. During the six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, mortgage loans originated totaled $2.2 billion and $1.6 billion, respectively, and mortgage loans sold totaled $2.2 billion and $1.6 billion, respectively. The Company had gains on sales of loans and servicing rights, net of recourse expense (benefit), of $40.8 million and $73.6 million during the three and six months ended March 31, 2015, compared to $23.9 million and $44.4 million in the same periods of 2014. Net gains on sales of loans and servicing rights are included in financial services revenues in the consolidated statements of operations. Approximately 84% of the mortgage loans sold by DHI Mortgage during the six months ended March 31, 2015 were sold to three major financial entities, none of whom purchased more than 40% of the total loans sold.

To manage the interest rate risk inherent in its mortgage operations, the Company hedges its risk using derivative instruments, generally forward sales of mortgage-backed securities (MBS), which are referred to as “hedging instruments” in the following discussion. The Company does not enter into or hold derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.

D.R. HORTON, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) – (Continued)
March 31, 2015



Newly originated loans that have been closed but not committed to third-party purchasers are hedged to mitigate the risk of changes in their fair value. Hedged loans are committed to third-party purchasers typically within three days after origination. The notional amounts of the hedging instruments used to hedge mortgage loans held for sale vary in relationship to the underlying loan amounts, depending on the movements in the value of each hedging instrument relative to the value of the underlying mortgage loans. The fair value change related to the hedging instruments generally offsets the fair value change in the mortgage loans held for sale. The net fair value change, which for the three and six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 was not significant, is recognized in financial services revenues in the consolidated statements of operations. At March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, the Company's mortgage loans held for sale that were not committed to third-party purchasers totaled $373.4 million and $348.6 million, respectively, and the notional amounts of the hedging instruments related to those loans totaled $373.3 million and $348.2 million, respectively.

Other Mortgage Loans and Loss Reserves

Mortgage loans are sold with limited recourse provisions derived from industry-standard representations and warranties in the relevant agreements. Primarily, these representations and warranties involve the absence of misrepresentations by the borrower or other parties, the appropriate underwriting of the loan and in some cases, a required minimum number of payments to be made by the borrower. The Company generally does not retain any other continuing interest related to mortgage loans sold in the secondary market. Other mortgage loans generally consist of loans repurchased due to these limited recourse obligations. Typically, these loans are impaired and some become real estate owned through the foreclosure process. At March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, the Company’s total other mortgage loans and real estate owned, before loss reserves, were as follows:

The Company has recorded reserves for estimated losses on other mortgage loans, real estate owned and future loan repurchase obligations due to the limited recourse provisions, all of which are recorded as reductions of financial services revenue. The loss reserve for loan repurchase and settlement obligations is estimated based on an analysis of loan repurchase requests received, actual repurchases and losses through the disposition of such loans or requests, discussions with mortgage purchasers and analysis of mortgages originated. The reserve balances at March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014 were as follows:

Loan Commitments and Related Derivatives

The Company is party to interest rate lock commitments (IRLCs), which are extended to borrowers who have applied for loan funding and meet defined credit and underwriting criteria. At March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, the notional amount of IRLCs, which are accounted for as derivative instruments recorded at fair value, totaled $440.1 million and $303.2 million, respectively.

The Company manages interest rate risk related to its IRLCs through the use of best-efforts whole loan delivery commitments and hedging instruments. These instruments are considered derivatives in an economic hedge and are accounted for at fair value with gains and losses recognized in financial services revenues in the consolidated statements of operations. At March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, the notional amount of best-efforts whole loan delivery commitments totaled $46.0 million and $28.2 million, respectively, and the notional amount of hedging instruments related to IRLCs not yet committed to purchasers totaled $351.7 million and $243.8 million, respectively.


NOTE G – INCOME TAXES

The Company’s income tax expense for the three and six months ended March 31, 2015 was $82.2 million and $160.4 million, respectively, compared to $70.9 million and $137.5 million in the same periods of fiscal 2014. The effective tax rate was 35.7% and 35.6% for the three and six months ended March 31, 2015, respectively, compared to 35.1% in both periods of fiscal 2014. The effective tax rates for all periods include an expense for state income taxes that is partially offset by a tax benefit for the domestic production activities deduction.

At March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, the Company had deferred tax assets, net of deferred tax liabilities, of $578.6 million and $596.1 million, respectively, partially offset by valuation allowances of $30.9 million and $31.1 million, respectively. The valuation allowance for both periods relates to the Company’s state deferred tax assets for net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards. The Company believes it is more likely than not that a portion of its state NOL carryforwards will not be realized because some state NOL carryforward periods are too brief to realize the related deferred tax assets.
 
When assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, the Company considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of its deferred tax assets will not be realized. The realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of sufficient taxable income in future periods. The Company records a valuation allowance when it determines it is more likely than not that a portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The accounting for deferred taxes is based upon estimates of future results. Differences between the anticipated and actual outcomes of these future results could have a material impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations or financial position. Also, changes in existing federal and state tax laws and tax rates could affect future tax results and the valuation of the Company's deferred tax assets.

NOTE I – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

The Company has an automatically effective universal shelf registration statement, filed with the SEC in September 2012, registering debt and equity securities that it may issue from time to time in amounts to be determined. The Company anticipates filing a new universal shelf registration statement that will register debt and equity securities prior to the expiration of its current universal shelf registration statement in September 2015.

Effective August 1, 2014, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $100 million of the Company’s common stock effective through July 31, 2015. All of the $100 million authorization was remaining at March 31, 2015, and no common stock has been repurchased subsequent to March 31, 2015.

During the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0625 per common share, which was paid on February 17, 2015 to stockholders of record on February 6, 2015. A quarterly cash dividend of $0.0375 per common share was approved and paid during the three months ended March 31, 2014.

NOTE J – EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

Restricted Stock Units

In November 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors approved and granted a total of 290,000 performance based restricted stock units (Performance RSUs) to the Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of the Company that vest at the end of a three-year performance period ending September 30, 2017. The number of units that ultimately vest depends on the Company's relative position as compared to its peers at the end of the three-year period in achieving certain performance criteria and can range from 0% to 200% of the number of units granted. The performance criteria are total shareholder return, return on investment, SG&A expense containment and gross profit. Each Performance RSU represents the contingent right to receive one share of the Company's common stock if the vesting conditions are satisfied. The Performance RSUs have no dividend or voting rights during the performance period. The fair value of these equity awards on the date of grant was $23.62 per unit. Compensation expense related to this grant was $0.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended March 31, 2015, based on the Company's performance against the peer group, the elapsed portion of the performance period and the grant date fair value of the award.

In November 2014, the Compensation Committee also approved and granted an award of 30,000 restricted stock units (RSUs) to the Chief Financial Officer of the Company that vest annually in equal installments over a three-year period ending in November 2017. Each RSU represents the contingent right to receive one share of the Company's common stock if the vesting conditions are satisfied. The RSUs have no dividend or voting rights during the vesting period. The fair value of this equity award on the date of grant was $21.88 per unit. Compensation expense related to this grant was $0.1 million in the six months ended March 31, 2015.

In March 2015, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors and the Board of Directors approved and granted awards of approximately 2.0 million RSUs to the executive officers, other key employees and non-management directors of the Company. The RSUs were awarded to approximately 570 recipients and vest annually in equal installments over periods of three to five years. Each RSU represents the contingent right to receive one share of the Company's common stock if the vesting conditions are satisfied. The RSUs have no dividend or voting rights during the vesting period. RSUs generally result in less dilution to shareholders than stock options, which have been granted to key employees in the past. RSUs also provide an immediate, tangible value to the recipient and better diversification than stock options alone, which promotes the retention of key employees over the multi-year vesting period. The average fair value of these equity awards on the date of grant was $26.09 per unit. Compensation expense related to this grant was $3.8 million in the three and six months ended March 31, 2015.


NOTE K – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Warranty Claims

The Company typically provides its homebuyers with a ten-year limited warranty for major defects in structural elements such as framing components and foundation systems, a two-year limited warranty on major mechanical systems, and a one-year limited warranty on other construction components. The Company’s warranty liability is based upon historical warranty cost experience in each market in which it operates, and is adjusted as appropriate to reflect qualitative risks associated with the types of homes built and the geographic areas in which they are built.

Legal Claims and Insurance

The Company is named as a defendant in various claims, complaints and other legal actions in the ordinary course of business. At any point in time, the Company is managing several hundred individual claims related to construction defect matters, personal injury claims, employment matters, land development issues and contract disputes. The Company has established reserves for these contingencies based on the estimated costs of pending claims and the estimated costs of anticipated future claims related to previously closed homes. The estimated liabilities for these contingencies were $449.4 million and $456.9 million at March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, respectively, and are included in homebuilding accrued expenses and other liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets. At both March 31, 2015 and September 30, 2014, approximately 99% of these reserves related to construction defect matters. Expenses related to the Company’s legal contingencies were $20.4 million and $5.4 million in the six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The Company’s reserves for construction defect claims include the estimated costs of both known claims and anticipated future claims. As of March 31, 2015, no individual existing claim was material to the Company’s financial statements, and the majority of the Company’s total construction defect reserves consisted of the estimated exposure to future claims on previously closed homes. The Company has closed a significant number of homes during recent years, and the Company may be subject to future construction defect claims on these homes. Although regulations vary from state to state, construction defect issues can generally be reported for up to ten years after the home has closed in many states in which the Company operates. Historical data and trends regarding the frequency of claims incurred and the costs to resolve claims relative to the types of products and markets where the Company operates are used to estimate the construction defect liabilities for both existing and anticipated future claims. These estimates are subject to ongoing revision as the circumstances of individual pending claims and historical data and trends change. Adjustments to estimated reserves are recorded in the accounting period in which the change in estimate occurs.

Historical trends in construction defect claims have been inconsistent, and the Company believes they may continue to fluctuate over the next several years. Housing market conditions have been volatile across most of the Company's markets over the past ten years, and the Company believes such conditions can affect the frequency and cost of construction defect claims. The Company closed a significant number of homes during its peak operating years from 2003 to 2007. If the ultimate resolution of construction defect claims resulting from closings in the Company's peak operating years varies from current expectations, it could significantly change the Company's estimates regarding the frequency and timing of claims incurred and the costs to resolve existing and anticipated future claims, which would impact the construction defect reserves in the future. If the frequency of claims incurred or costs of existing and future legal claims significantly exceed the Company's current estimates, they will have a significant negative impact on its future earnings and liquidity.

The Company's reserves for legal claims decreased from $456.9 million at September 30, 2014 to $449.4 million at March 31, 2015 due to payments made for legal claims during the period, net of reimbursements received from subcontractors, partially offset by an increase in the number of closed homes that are subject to possible future construction defect claims. Changes in the Company’s legal claims reserves during the six months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 were as follows:

The Company estimates and records receivables when recovery is probable under its applicable insurance policies related to its estimated contingencies for known claims and anticipated future construction defect claims on previously closed homes and other legal claims and lawsuits incurred in the ordinary course of business. Additionally, the Company may have the ability to recover a portion of its losses from its subcontractors and their insurance carriers when the Company has been named as an additional insured on their insurance policies. The Company's receivables related to its estimates of insurance recoveries from estimated losses from pending legal claims and anticipated future claims related to previously closed homes totaled $134.1 million, $138.4 million and $136.1 million at March 31, 2015, September 30, 2014 and March 31, 2014, respectively, and are included in homebuilding other assets in the consolidated balance sheets.

The estimation of losses related to these reserves and the related estimates of recoveries from insurance policies are subject to a high degree of variability due to uncertainties such as trends in construction defect claims relative to the Company's markets and the types of products built, claim frequency, claim settlement costs and patterns, insurance industry practices and legal interpretations, among others. Due to the high degree of judgment required in establishing reserves for these contingencies, actual future costs and recoveries from insurance could differ significantly from current estimated amounts, and it is not possible for the Company to make a reasonable estimate of the possible loss or range of loss in excess of its reserves.

Land and Lot Option Purchase Contracts

The Company enters into land and lot option purchase contracts to acquire land or lots for the construction of homes. At March 31, 2015, the Company had total deposits of $64.4 million, consisting of cash deposits of $56.9 million and promissory notes, letters of credit and surety bonds of $7.5 million, to purchase land and lots with a total remaining purchase price of approximately $2.0 billion. A limited number of the land and lot option purchase contracts at March 31, 2015, representing $25.7 million of remaining purchase price, were subject to specific performance clauses which may require the Company to purchase the land or lots upon the land sellers meeting their contractual obligations. The majority of land and lots under contract are currently expected to be purchased within three years.

Other Commitments

At March 31, 2015, the Company had outstanding surety bonds of $945.2 million and letters of credit of $93.4 million to secure performance under various contracts. Of the total letters of credit, $90.3 million were issued under the Company's revolving credit facility. The remaining $3.1 million of letters of credit were issued under secured letter of credit agreements requiring the Company to deposit cash as collateral with the issuing banks, and the cash restricted for this purpose is included in homebuilding restricted cash in the consolidated balance sheets.

NOTE M – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Fair value measurements are used for the Company's mortgage loans held for sale, debt securities collateralized by residential real estate, IRLCs and other derivative instruments on a recurring basis, and are used for inventories, other mortgage loans, rental properties and real estate owned on a nonrecurring basis, when events and circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. The fair value hierarchy and its application to the Company’s assets and liabilities is as follows:

Level 1 – Valuation is based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.
Level 2 – Valuation is determined from quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, or by model-based techniques in which all significant inputs are observable in the market. The Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value using Level 2 inputs on a recurring basis are as follows:
mortgage loans held for sale;
IRLCs; and
loan sale commitments and hedging instruments.
Level 3 – Valuation is typically derived from model-based techniques in which at least one significant input is unobservable and based on the Company’s own estimates about the assumptions that market participants would use to value the asset or liability.
The Company's assets measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs on a recurring basis are as follows:
debt securities collateralized by residential real estate; and
a limited number of mortgage loans held for sale with some degree of impairment affecting their marketability.
The Company’s assets measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs that are typically reported at the lower of carrying value or fair value on a nonrecurring basis are as follows:
inventory held and used;
inventory available for sale;
certain other mortgage loans; and
rental properties and real estate owned.

(a)
In October 2012, the Company purchased defaulted debt securities which are secured by residential real estate. These securities, which are included in other assets in the consolidated balance sheets, are classified as available for sale and are reflected at fair value. The fair value of these securities was determined by estimating the future cash flows of the securities and the residential real estate utilizing discount rates of 6% and 18%, respectively. Unrealized gains or losses on these securities, net of tax, are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in the consolidated balance sheets. The Company has entered into an agreement to purchase this residential real estate parcel and all additional defaulted debt securities associated with the parcel, in order to develop the property and build and sell homes. In April 2015, the Company completed this purchase transaction for $19.6 million in cash. The purchase price will be allocated to the land and the debt securities acquired in the third quarter of fiscal 2015.
(b)
Mortgage loans held for sale are reflected at fair value. Interest income earned on mortgage loans held for sale is based on contractual interest rates and included in financial services interest and other income. Mortgage loans held for sale at March 31, 2015 includes $13.4 million of originated loans for which the Company elected the fair value option upon origination and which the Company has not sold into the secondary market, but plans to sell as market conditions permit. The fair value of these mortgage loans held for sale is generally calculated considering the secondary market and adjusted for the value of the underlying collateral, including interest rate risk, liquidity risk and prepayment risk.
(c)
Fair value measurements of these derivatives represent changes in fair value, as calculated by reference to quoted prices for similar assets, and are reflected in the balance sheet. Changes in these fair values during the periods presented are included in financial services revenues in the consolidated statements of operations.

NOTE O – SUPPLEMENTAL GUARANTOR INFORMATION

All of the Company's senior notes and the unsecured revolving credit facility are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, on a joint and several basis, by substantially all of the Company's homebuilding subsidiaries (collectively, Guarantor Subsidiaries). Each of the Guarantor Subsidiaries is 100% owned, directly or indirectly, by the Company. The Company's subsidiaries engaged in the financial services segment and certain other subsidiaries do not guarantee the Company's senior notes and the unsecured revolving credit facility (collectively, Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries). In lieu of providing separate financial statements for the Guarantor Subsidiaries, consolidating condensed financial statements are presented below. Separate financial statements and other disclosures concerning the Guarantor Subsidiaries are not presented because management has determined that they are not material to investors.

The guarantees by a Guarantor Subsidiary will be automatically and unconditionally released and discharged upon: (1) the sale or other disposition of its common stock whereby it is no longer a subsidiary of the Company; (2) the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of its assets (other than to the Company or another Guarantor); (3) its merger or consolidation with an entity other than the Company or another Guarantor; or (4) depending on the provisions of the applicable indenture, either (a) its proper designation as an unrestricted subsidiary, (b) its ceasing to guarantee any of the Company's publicly traded debt securities, or (c) its ceasing to guarantee any of the Company's obligations under the revolving credit facility.
