Toll Brothers is the nation's premier builder of luxury homes and is currently building in 20 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
The company has experienced steep declines in sales over the past several years due to the collapse in the home market.
Toll Brothers builds luxury single-family detached and attached home communities, master planned luxury residential resort-style golf communities and urban low-, mid- and high-rise communities, principally on land it develops and improves. The Company operates its own architectural, engineering, mortgage, title, land development and land sale, golf course development and management, home security and landscape subsidiaries. The Company also operates its own lumber distribution, and house component assembly and manufacturing operations.
In fiscal 2011, Toll Brothers reported revenues of $1.47 billion, a 1% drop over the previous year, and net income of $39.8 million. The company built 2,611 units in 2011, down 1% from the previous year.
The company ended the year with 215 selling communities, up from 195 in 2010 with 37,500 lots owned or optioned.
Douglas Yearley, CEO of Toll, said, "Our strong balance sheet gives us the financial flexibility to invest for the future. During FY 2011, we spent approximately $281 million on land for our core traditional and urban new home business, purchasing approximately 3,400 lots and optioning another 5,800: this resulted in a net increase to 37,500 lots owned and controlled at FYE 2011 versus 34,700 at FYE 2010. Nearly 60% of our lots are concentrated in the land-constrained metro Washington DC to metro Boston corridor, which enjoys lower unemployment and greater affluence than many other regions. Recently, we announced our entry into the Seattle market through the acquisition of CamWest LLC, which added approximately 1,300 lots owned and 200 under option to our land position. During FY 2012, including Seattle, we project growing our community count by between 9% and 19% and reaching FYE 2012 with between 235 and 255 selling communities.
"The urban metro New York City market remains a bright light for us. In FY 2011, we opened for sale three new buildings under our "Toll Brothers City Living" brand. We launched 1450 Washington Avenue, the fourth building in our successful Hudson Tea project at the northern tip of Hoboken, New Jersey. In Manhattan, we opened The Touraine on the Upper East Side at 65th Street and Lexington Avenue, a small boutique building with an average projected sales price of $5 million per unit. On the Brooklyn waterfront, we opened 205 Water Street in the DUMBO neighborhood. Before opening for sale, The Touraine and 205 Water each had lists of over 3,000 potential customers who had expressed interest. In total, in the urban metro New York City market, we have completed 13 buildings of approximately 2,550 units, approximately 2,430 of which have been sold; we are in construction on three buildings of 245 units; and have eight more buildings of approximately 1,600 units in planning."
