Since our founding in 1950, PulteGroup has delivered almost 750,000 homes throughout the United States. What began as a single home built by the hands and entrepreneurial spirit of our founder Bill Pulte, is today the nation’s third largest homebuilder with operations in over 40 major cities. Marketing under some of the industry’s best known brands: Pulte, Centex, Del Webb, DiVosta, American West, and John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, we can meet the needs of first-time, move-up and active-adult homebuyers.

Driving Dramatic Gains in Income and Profitability

PulteGroup operates against a stated objective of delivering high returns on invested capital and equity over the housing cycle.  Research indicates that high ROIC and ROE are key drivers to creating long-term shareholder value in the homebuilding industry.  This focus has helped the Company raise key operating and financial metrics to be among the industry leaders. 

Consistent with our emphasis on generating high returns, our capital allocation priorities have been developed to create value for our shareholders.  We routinely allocate capital against these four stated priorities:

  • Invest in the business, including M&A, through land acquisition and development;
  • Fund our dividend and work to grow it over time;
  • Use excess capital to repurchase our common shares;
  • And, selectively purchase our outstanding debt to control overall financial leverage.

Adhering to these priorities, during the five-year period of 2016 through 2020, we invested approximately $14 billion in land acquisition and development, while returning $2.9 billion to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases.
