Driving Gains Income and Profitability

Since 2011, PulteGroup has been operating against the clearly defined goals of delivering high returns on invested capital and equity that, in turn, are expected to create long-term business value for our shareholders. Key to achieving higher returns has been a series of initiatives designed to improve our fundamental business results in the areas of operating margins, growth in pretax income, inventory turns and the efficient use of capital. As a result of our efforts, PulteGroup’s operating and financial performance has risen to be among the industry leaders allowing us to drive dramatic gains in pretax income.

Supporting our efforts to deliver higher returns and increased shareholder value is our stated capital allocation priorities which are: 1) invest in the business, which can include M&A; 2) fund our dividend and look to grow it over time; and 3) use excess cash to repurchase shares. Consistent with these priorities, in the five-year period of 2013 through 2017, the Company invested approximately $10 billion in land acquisition and development, while returning $2.8 billion to shareholders through dividends and share repurchase.
