Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
(1)Basis of Presentation
Basis of Consolidation
The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. The basis of consolidation is unchanged from the disclosure in the Company's Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements section in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for the fair presentation of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been made.
The Company has historically experienced, and expects to continue to experience, variability in quarterly results. The condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Homebuilding cash and cash equivalents as of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020 included $666.8 million and $314.3 million, respectively, of cash held in escrow. On average for the three months ended August 31, 2021, cash was held in escrow for approximately three days.
Share-based Payments
During the three months ended August 31, 2021, the Company granted employees an immaterial number of nonvested shares. During the three months ended August 31, 2020, the Company granted employees 0.9 million of nonvested shares. During the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company granted employees 1.4 million and 1.8 million nonvested shares, respectively.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standard Update ("ASU") 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments ("ASU 2016-13"). ASU 2016-13 significantly changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments. ASU 2016-13 requires immediate recognition of estimated credit losses expected to occur over the remaining life of many financial assets, which generally results in earlier recognition of allowances for credit losses on loans and other financial instruments. ASU 2016-13 was effective for the Company's fiscal year beginning December 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2016-13 did not have a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350), Simplifying the Accounting for Goodwill Impairment ("ASU 2017-04"). ASU 2017-04 removes the requirement to perform a hypothetical purchase price allocation to measure goodwill impairment. A goodwill impairment will now be the amount by which a reporting unit's carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. ASU 2017-04 was effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning December 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2017-04 did not have a material impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.
New Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740), Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes ("ASU 2019-12"). ASU 2019-12 will be effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning December 1, 2021. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of ASU 2019-12 will have on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

Reclassifications
Certain prior year amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform with the 2021 presentation. The Company reclassed the balance of its investment in Doma, formerly States Title, to which the Company sold the majority of the Financial Services segment's retail title agency business and title insurance underwriter in the first quarter of 2019, from the Financial Services segment to the Lennar Other segment in the condensed consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented. This was reclassed to be included in our strategic technology investments as the entity had announced that it would merge with a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company and during the three months ended August 31, 2021 completed the merger and became a publicly traded entity. In addition, the Company reflected its contributions to its charitable foundation in a new line on its condensed consolidated statements of operations for all periods presented. This was previously reflected in the Corporate general and administrative line. These reclassifications had no impact on the Company's total assets, total equity, revenues or net earnings in its condensed consolidated financial statements.
(2)Operating and Reporting Segments
The Company's homebuilding operations construct and sell homes primarily for first-time, move-up and active adult homebuyers primarily under the Lennar brand name. In addition, the Company's homebuilding operations purchase, develop and sell land to third parties. The Company's chief operating decision makers manage and assess the Company’s performance at a regional level. Therefore, the Company performed an assessment of its operating segments in accordance with ASC 280, Segment Reporting, and determined that the following are its operating and reportable segments:
Homebuilding segments: (1) East (2) Central (3) Texas (4) West
(5) Financial Services
(6) Multifamily
(7) Lennar Other
The assets and liabilities related to the Company’s segments were as follows:

Homebuilding Segments
Information about homebuilding activities in states which are not economically similar to other states in the same geographic area is grouped under "Homebuilding Other," which is not considered a reportable segment.
Evaluation of segment performance is based primarily on operating earnings (loss) before income taxes. Operations of the Company’s Homebuilding segments primarily include the construction and sale of single-family attached and detached homes as well as the purchase, development and sale of residential land directly and through the Company’s unconsolidated entities. Operating earnings (loss) for the Homebuilding segments consist of revenues generated from the sales of homes and land, other revenues from management fees and forfeited deposits, equity in earnings (loss) from unconsolidated entities and other income (expense), net, less the cost of homes sold and land sold, and selling, general and administrative expenses incurred by the segment.
The Company’s reportable Homebuilding segments and all other homebuilding operations not required to be reported separately have homebuilding divisions located in:
East: Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and South Carolina
Central: Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina and Virginia
Texas: Texas
West: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington
Other: Urban divisions and other homebuilding related investments primarily in California, including FivePoint Holdings, LLC ("FivePoint")

Financial Services
Operations of the Financial Services segment include primarily mortgage financing, title and closing services primarily for buyers of the Company’s homes. It also includes originating and selling into securitizations commercial mortgage loans through its LMF Commercial business. Financial Services’ operating earnings consist of revenues generated primarily from mortgage financing, title and closing services, and property and casualty insurance, less the cost of such services and certain selling, general and administrative expenses incurred by the segment. The Financial Services segment operates generally in the same states as the Company’s homebuilding operations.
At August 31, 2021, the Financial Services warehouse facilities were all 364-day repurchase facilities and were used to fund residential mortgages or commercial mortgages for LMF Commercial as follows:

Total$1,961,438 
(1)Includes $11.4 million warehouse repurchase facility used by LMF Commercial to finance the origination of floating rate accrual loans, which are reported as accrual loans within loans held-for-investment, net.
The Financial Services segment uses the residential facilities to finance its residential lending activities until the mortgage loans are sold to investors and the proceeds are collected. The facilities are non-recourse to the Company and are expected to be renewed or replaced with other facilities when they mature. The LMF Commercial facilities finance LMF Commercial loan originations and securitization activities and were secured by up to an 80% interest in the originated commercial loans financed.
Borrowings and collateral under the facilities and their prior year predecessors were as follows:
(In thousands)August 31, 2021November 30, 2020
Borrowings under the residential facilities$900,332 1,185,797 
Collateral under the residential facilities934,345 1,231,619 
Borrowings under the LMF Commercial facilities54,990 124,617 
If the facilities are not renewed or replaced, the borrowings under the lines of credit will be repaid by selling the mortgage loans held-for-sale to investors and by collecting receivables on loans sold but not yet paid for. Without the facilities, the Financial Services segment would have to use cash from operations and other funding sources to finance its lending activities.
Substantially all of the residential loans the Financial Services segment originates are sold within a short period in the secondary mortgage market on a servicing released, non-recourse basis. After the loans are sold, the Company retains potential liability for possible claims by purchasers that it breached certain limited industry-standard representations and warranties in the loan sale agreements. Purchasers sometimes try to defray losses by purporting to have found inaccuracies related to sellers’ representations and warranties in particular loan sale agreements. Mortgage investors could seek to have the Company buy back mortgage loans or compensate them for losses incurred on mortgage loans that the Company has sold based on claims that the Company breached its limited representations or warranties. The Company’s mortgage operations have established accruals for
12

Lennar Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) (Continued)

possible losses associated with mortgage loans previously originated and sold to investors. The Company establishes accruals for such possible losses based upon, among other things, an analysis of repurchase requests received, an estimate of potential repurchase claims not yet received and actual past repurchases and losses through the disposition of affected loans as well as previous settlements. While the Company believes that it has adequately reserved for known losses and projected repurchase requests, given the volatility in the residential mortgage industry and the uncertainty regarding the ultimate resolution of these claims, if either actual repurchases or the losses incurred resolving those repurchases exceed the Company’s expectations, additional recourse expense may be incurred. Loan origination liabilities are included in Financial Services’ liabilities in the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets.

(1)During both the three and nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020 all the commercial loans originated were recorded as loans held-for-sale, which are held at fair value.
Investments held-to-maturity
At August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, the Financial Services segment held commercial mortgage-backed securities ("CMBS"). These securities are classified as held-to-maturity based on its intent and ability to hold the securities until maturity and changes in estimated cash flows are reviewed periodically to determine if an other-than-temporary impairment has occurred. Based on the segment’s assessment, no impairment charges were recorded during either the three or nine months ended August 31, 2021 or 2020. The Company has financing agreements to finance CMBS that have been purchased as investments by the Financial Services segment.

Multifamily
The Company is actively involved, primarily through unconsolidated entities, in the development, construction and property management of multifamily rental properties. The Multifamily segment focuses on developing a geographically diversified portfolio of institutional quality multifamily rental properties in select U.S. markets.
Operations of the Multifamily segment include revenues generated from the sales of land, revenue from construction activities, and management and promote fees generated from joint ventures and equity in earnings (loss) from unconsolidated entities and other gains (which includes sales of buildings), less the cost of sales of land sold, expenses related to construction activities and general and administrative expenses.

Lennar Other
Lennar Other primarily includes strategic investments in technology companies, primarily managed by the Company's LENX subsidiary, and fund interests the Company retained when it sold the Rialto asset and investment management platform. Operations of the Lennar Other segment include operating earnings (loss) consisting of revenues generated primarily from the Company's share of carried interests in the Rialto fund investments retained after the sale of Rialto's asset and investment management platform, along with equity in earnings (loss) from the Rialto fund investments and strategic technology investments, gains (losses) from investments in equity securities and other income (expense), net from the remaining assets related to the Company's former Rialto segment.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, the Company completed the sale of the Company's residential solar business to Sunnova Energy International Inc. ("Sunnova") for shares in Sunnova. The Company recorded a gain of $153.0 million upon the closing of the sale. The calculation of the gain included the fair value of the 3.1 million shares in initial consideration received at closing and the fair value of potential shares to be received upon achievement of earnouts. The significant unobservable fair value assumptions used in the calculation were a terminal value multiple of 3 and a 15% discount rate. The fair value of the earnouts was also based on the probability of achieving full or partial earnouts.
The investments in Opendoor Technologies, Inc. ("Opendoor"), Sunnova, Hippo Holdings, Inc. ("Hippo"), SmartRent, Inc. ("SmartRent") and Blend Labs, Inc. ("Blend") are held at market and will therefore change depending on the value of the Company's share holdings in those entities on the last day of each quarter. The following is a detail of Lennar Other realized and unrealized gain (loss):

During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, Opendoor, Hippo, SmartRent and Blend began trading and the Company began to mark to market the Company's share holdings in the public entities. The mark to market recognition was due to the entities in which the Company holds the investments going public and the loss of a contractual right to a board seat, where applicable, during the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and the investments now being accounted for as investments in equity securities which are held at fair value and the changes in fair value are recognized through earnings. As of November 30, 2020, the investments were included in the Company's investments in unconsolidated entities and were accounted for using the equity method. In addition, as previously noted, Doma Holdings, Inc. ("Doma") went public during the three months ended August 31, 2021. Doma is an investment that continues to be accounted for under the equity method due to the Company's significant ownership interest which allows the Company to exercise significant influence. As of August 31, 2021, the Company owns approximately 25% of Doma and the carrying amount of the Company's investment is $62.4 million.
(3)Investments in Unconsolidated Entities
Homebuilding Unconsolidated Entities
The investments in the Company's Homebuilding unconsolidated entities were as follows:
(In thousands)August 31, 2021November 30, 2020
Investments in unconsolidated entities (1) (2)$983,429 953,177 
Underlying equity in unconsolidated entities' net assets (1)1,291,535 1,269,701 
(1)The basis difference was primarily as a result of the Company contributing its investment in three strategic joint ventures with a higher fair value than book value for an investment in the FivePoint entity and deferring equity in earnings on land sales to the Company.
(2)Included in the Company's recorded investments in Homebuilding unconsolidated entities is the Company's 40% ownership of FivePoint. As of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, the carrying amount of the Company's investment was $389.8 million and $392.1 million, respectively.
The Company has an immaterial amount of recourse exposure to debt of the Homebuilding unconsolidated entities in which it has investments. While the Company sometimes guarantees debt of unconsolidated entities, in most instances the Company’s partners have also guaranteed that debt and are required to contribute their shares of any payments. In most
14

Lennar Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) (Continued)

instances the amount of guaranteed debt of an unconsolidated entity is less than the value of the collateral securing it.
In the first quarter of 2021, the Company formed the Upward America Venture ("the Venture"). The Venture acquires single family homes for rent in high growth markets across the United States. The Venture raised equity to get to a total commitment of $1.25 billion led by institutional investors. Including leverage, the Venture will be positioned to acquire over $4.0 billion of new single family homes and townhomes from Lennar and potentially other homebuilders.
Multifamily Unconsolidated Entities
The unconsolidated entities in which the Multifamily segment has investments usually finance their activities with a combination of partner equity and debt financing. In connection with many of the bank loans to Multifamily unconsolidated entities, the Company (or entities related to them) has been required to give guarantees of completion and cost over-runs to the lenders and partners. The details related to these are unchanged from the disclosure in the Company's Notes to the Financial Statements section in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. As of both August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, the fair value of the completion guarantees was immaterial. As of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, Multifamily segment's unconsolidated entities had non-recourse debt with completion guarantees of $866.9 million and $722.9 million, respectively.
In many instances, the Multifamily segment is appointed as the construction, development and property manager for its Multifamily unconsolidated entities and receives fees for performing this function. The Multifamily segment also provides general contractor services for construction of some of the rental properties owned by unconsolidated entities in which the Company has investments.

These strategic investments include the Company's investment in Doma, formerly known as States Title, which was reclassified from the Financial Services segment.

(1)For both the three and nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, the effective tax rate included state income tax expense and non-deductible executive compensation, partially offset by new energy efficient home and solar tax credits. The nine months ended August 31, 2020 also included benefits related to the years ended November 30, 2018 and 2019, due to Congress retroactively extending the new energy efficient home tax credit in December 2019.
(6)Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the Company.
All outstanding nonvested shares that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents that participate in undistributed earnings with common stock are considered participating securities and are included in computing earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. The two-class method is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per share for each class of common stock and participating securities according to dividends or dividend equivalents and participation rights in undistributed earnings. The Company’s restricted common stock ("nonvested shares") is considered participating securities.
Basic and diluted earnings per share were calculated as follows:

(1)Subsequent to August 31, 2021, the Company provided notice that it would redeem on October 15, 2021 its $600 million 4.125% senior unsecured notes, which have a scheduled maturity of January 15, 2022.
The carrying amounts of the senior notes in the table above are net of debt issuance costs of $12.4 million and $15.9 million as of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, respectively.
In June 2021, the Company redeemed $300 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.25% senior notes due December 2021. The redemption price, which was paid in cash, was 100% of the principal amount plus accrued unpaid interest.
As of August 31, 2021 the maximum available borrowings on the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility") were $2.5 billion and included a $300 million accordion feature, subject to additional commitments, thus the maximum borrowings could be $2.8 billion maturing in 2024. The Credit Facility agreement (the "Credit Agreement") provides that up to $500 million in commitments may be used for letters of credit. The maturity, debt covenants and details of the Credit Facility are unchanged from the disclosure in the Company's Financial Condition and Capital Resources section in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. In addition to the Credit Facility, the Company has other letter of credit facilities with different financial institutions.
Procedures related to performance letters of credit, financial letters of credit and surety bonds are unchanged from the disclosure in the Company's Financial Condition and Capital Resources section in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020.

(9)Financial Instruments and Fair Value Disclosures
The following table presents the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of financial instruments held or issued by the Company at August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, using available market information and what the Company believes to be appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value. The use of different market assumptions and/or estimation methodologies might have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts. The table excludes cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, receivables, net and accounts payable, all of which had fair values approximating their carrying amounts due to the short maturities and liquidity of these instruments.

The following methods and assumptions are used by the Company in estimating fair values:
Financial Services—The fair values above are based on quoted market prices, if available. The fair values for instruments that do not have quoted market prices are estimated by the Company on the basis of discounted cash flows or other financial information. For notes and other debts payable, the fair values approximate their carrying value due to variable interest pricing terms and the short-term nature of the majority of the borrowings.
Homebuilding—For senior notes and other debts payable, the fair value of fixed-rate borrowings is primarily based on quoted market prices and the fair value of variable-rate borrowings is based on expected future cash flows calculated using current market forward rates.
Lennar Other—The fair value for notes payable approximate their carrying value due to variable interest pricing terms and the short-term nature of the borrowings.
Fair Value Measurements:
GAAP provides a framework for measuring fair value, expands disclosures about fair value measurements and establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value summarized as follows:
Level 1: Fair value determined based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.
Level 2: Fair value determined using significant other observable inputs.
Level 3: Fair value determined using significant unobservable inputs.

LMF Commercial loans held-for-sale116,010 (2,881)194,362 (774)
Financial Services residential loans held-for-sale - Fair value is based on independent quoted market prices, where available, or the prices for other mortgage whole loans with similar characteristics. The Company recognizes the fair value of its rights to service a mortgage loan as revenue upon entering into an interest rate lock loan commitment with a borrower. The fair value of these are included in Financial Services’ loans held-for-sale as of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020. Fair value of servicing rights is determined based on actual sales of servicing rights on loans with similar characteristics.
LMF Commercial loans held-for-sale - The fair value of loans held-for-sale is calculated from model-based techniques that use discounted cash flow assumptions and the Company’s own estimates of CMBS spreads, market interest rate movements and the underlying loan credit quality. The details and methods of the calculation are unchanged from the fair value disclosure in the Company's Notes to the Financial Statements section in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. These methods use unobservable inputs in estimating a discount rate that is used to assign a value to each loan. While the cash payments on the loans are contractual, the discount rate used and assumptions regarding the relative size of each class in the CMBS capital structure can significantly impact the valuation. Therefore, the estimates used could differ materially from the fair value determined when the loans are sold to a securitization trust.
Mortgage servicing rights - Financial Services records mortgage servicing rights when it sells loans on a servicing-retained basis or through the acquisition or assumption of the right to service a financial asset. The fair value of the mortgage servicing rights is calculated using third-party valuations. The key assumptions, which are generally unobservable inputs, used in the valuation of the mortgage servicing rights include mortgage prepayment rates, discount rates and delinquency rates and are noted below:
Unobservable inputsAs of August 31, 2021As of November 30, 2020
Mortgage prepayment rate14%18%
Discount rate14%12%
Delinquency rate3%4%
Lennar Other investments in equity securities - The fair value of investments in equity securities was calculated based on independent quoted market prices. The Company’s investments in equity securities were recorded at fair value with all changes in fair value recorded to Lennar Other unrealized gain of the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss).
Lennar Other investments available-for-sale - The fair value of investments available-for-sale is calculated from model-based techniques that use discounted cash flow assumptions and the Company’s own estimates of CMBS spreads, market interest rate movements and the underlying loan credit quality. Loan values are calculated by allocating the change in value of an assumed CMBS capital structure to each loan. The value of an assumed CMBS capital structure is calculated, generally, by discounting the cash flows associated with each CMBS class at market interest rates and at the Company’s own estimate of CMBS spreads.

Finished homes and construction in progress are included within inventories. Inventories are stated at cost unless the inventory within a community is determined to be impaired, in which case the impaired inventory is written down to fair value. The Company disclosed its accounting policy related to inventories and its review for indicators of impairment in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020.
The Company estimates the fair value of inventory evaluated for impairment based on market conditions and assumptions made by management at the time the inventory is evaluated, which may differ materially from actual results if market conditions or assumptions change. For example, changes in market conditions and other specific developments or changes in assumptions may cause the Company to re-evaluate its strategy regarding previously impaired inventory, as well as inventory not currently impaired but for which indicators of impairment may arise if market deterioration occurs, and certain other assets that could result in further valuation adjustments and/or additional write-offs of option deposits and pre-acquisition costs due to abandonment of those options contracts.
The Company disclosed its accounting policy related to inventories and its review for indicators of impairment in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in its Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. On a quarterly basis, the Company reviews its active communities for indicators of potential impairments.

The Company evaluated the joint venture ("JV") agreements of its JV's that were formed or that had reconsideration events, such as changes in the governing documents or to debt arrangements during the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and based on the Company's evaluation, during the nine months ended August 31, 2021, the Company consolidated two entities that had a total combined assets and liabilities of $30.7 million and $0.7 million, respectively. During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, there were no VIEs that were deconsolidated.
The carrying amount of the Company's consolidated VIE's assets and non-recourse liabilities are disclosed in the footnote to the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) (Continued)

A VIE’s assets can only be used to settle obligations of that VIE. The VIEs are not guarantors of the Company’s senior notes or other debts payable. The assets held by a VIE usually are collateral for that VIE’s debt. The Company and other partners do not generally have an obligation to make capital contributions to a VIE unless the Company and/or the other partner(s) have entered into debt guarantees with a VIE’s lenders. Other than debt guarantee agreements with a VIE’s lenders, there are no liquidity arrangements or agreements to fund capital or purchase assets that could require the Company to provide financial support to a VIE. While the Company has option contracts to purchase land from certain of its VIEs, the Company is not required to purchase the assets and could walk away from the contracts.
Unconsolidated VIEs
The Company’s recorded investments in VIEs that are unconsolidated and its estimated maximum exposure to loss were as follows:

$884,330 1,058,373 949,447 1,101,506 
(1)As of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, the maximum exposure to loss of Homebuilding's investments in unconsolidated VIEs was limited to its investments in unconsolidated VIEs, except as of August 31, 2021, with regard to the Company's remaining commitment to fund capital in the Upward America Venture, a single family for rent platform. The increase was due to the Company's commitment to fund the Upward America Venture.
(2)As of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, the maximum exposure to loss of Multifamily's investments in unconsolidated VIEs was primarily limited to its investments in the unconsolidated VIEs, except with regard to the remaining equity commitment of $24.9 million and $88.1 million, respectively, to fund LMV I and LMV II for future expenditures related to the construction and development of its projects. The decrease was due to the funding of capital for LMV I and LMV II.
(3)As of August 31, 2021, the decrease in investments in unconsolidated VIEs and maximum exposure to loss was related to an entity which had a reconsideration event due to the payoff of a note receivable which caused the entity to no longer be considered a VIE.
While these entities are VIEs, the Company has determined that the power to direct the activities of the VIEs that most significantly impact the VIEs’ economic performance is generally shared and the Company and its partners are not de-facto agents. While the Company generally manages the day-to-day operations of the VIEs, each of these VIEs has an executive committee made up of representatives from each partner. The members of the executive committee have equal votes and major decisions require unanimous consent and approval from all members. The Company does not have the unilateral ability to exercise participating voting rights without partner consent.
There are no liquidity arrangements or agreements to fund capital or purchase assets that could require the Company to provide financial support to the VIEs. Except for the unconsolidated VIEs discussed above, the Company and the other partners did not guarantee any debt of the other unconsolidated VIEs. While the Company has option contracts to purchase land from certain of its unconsolidated VIEs, the Company is not required to purchase the assets and could walk away from the contracts.
Option Contracts
The Company has access to land through option contracts, which generally enable it to control portions of properties owned by third parties (including land funds) and unconsolidated entities until the Company has determined whether to exercise the options.
The Company evaluates all option contracts for land to determine whether they are VIEs and, if so, whether the Company is the primary beneficiary of certain of these option contracts. Although the Company does not have legal title to the optioned land, if the Company is deemed to be the primary beneficiary or makes a significant deposit for optioned land, it may need to consolidate the land under option at the purchase price of the optioned land.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, consolidated inventory not owned increased by $167.8 million with a corresponding increase to liabilities related to consolidated inventory not owned in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of August 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to additions in the nine months ended August 31, 2021 as the Company focused on increasing its controlled homesites, partially offset by takedowns. To reflect the purchase price of the homesite takedowns, the Company had a net reclass related to option deposits from consolidated inventory not owned to land under development in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of August 31, 2021. The liabilities related to consolidated inventory not owned primarily represent the difference between the option exercise prices for the optioned land and the Company’s cash deposits.

(11)Commitments and Contingent Liabilities
The Company is party to various claims, legal actions and complaints arising in the ordinary course of business. In the opinion of management, the disposition of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. From time to time, the Company is also a party to various lawsuits involving purchases and sales of real property. These lawsuits include claims regarding representations and warranties made in connection with the transfer of properties and disputes regarding the obligation to purchase or sell properties.
The Company does not believe that the ultimate resolution of these claims or lawsuits will have a material adverse effect on its business or financial position. However, the financial effect of litigation concerning purchases and sales of property may depend upon the value of the subject property, which may have changed from the time the agreement for purchase or sale was entered into.
Leases
The Company has entered into agreements to lease certain office facilities and equipment under operating leases. The Company recognizes lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. ROU assets and right-of-use lease liabilities are recorded on the balance sheet for all leases, except leases with an initial term of 12 months or less. Many of the Company's leases include options to renew. The exercise of lease renewal options is at the Company's option and therefore renewal option payments have not been included in the ROU assets or lease liabilities. The following table includes additional information about the Company's leases:

(1)Total future minimum lease payments exclude variable lease costs of $26.2 million and short-term lease costs of $2.1 million. This also does not include minimum lease payments for executed and legally enforceable leases that have not yet commenced. As of August 31, 2021, the minimum lease payments for these leases that have not yet commenced were immaterial.
(2)The Company's leases do not include a readily determinable implicit rate. As such, the Company has estimated the discount rate for these leases to determine the present value of lease payments at the lease commencement date or as of December 1, 2019, which was the effective date of ASU 2016-02. As of August 31, 2021, the weighted average remaining lease term and weighted average discount rate used in calculating the lease liabilities were 8.3 years and 2.9%, respectively. The Company recognized the lease liabilities on its condensed consolidated balance sheets within accounts payable or other liabilities of the respective segments.
The Company's rental expense and payments on lease liabilities were as follows:

On occasion, the Company may sublease rented space which is no longer used for the Company's operations. For both the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had an immaterial amount of sublease income.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included under Item 1 of this Report and our audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, for our fiscal year ended November 30, 2020.
Some of the statements in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, are "forward-looking statements," within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements typically include the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “consider,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “objective,” “plan,” “predict,” “projection,” “seek,” “strategy,” “target,” “will” or other words of similar meaning. Forward-looking statements contained herein may include opinions or beliefs regarding market conditions and similar matters. In many instances, those opinions and beliefs are based upon general observations by members of our management, anecdotal evidence and our experience in the conduct of our businesses, without specific investigation or analyses. Therefore, while they reflect our view of the industries and markets in which we are involved, they should not be viewed as reflecting verifiable views or views that are necessarily shared by all who are involved in those industries or markets. These statements concern expectations, beliefs, projections, plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts.
The forward-looking statements reflect our current views about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. We wish to caution readers that certain important factors may have affected and could in the future affect our actual results and could cause actual results to differ significantly from what is anticipated by our forward-looking statements. The most important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: the potential negative impact to our business of the ongoing coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic, the duration, impact and severity of which is highly uncertain; continuation of supply shortages and increased costs related to construction materials and labor; cost increases related to real estate taxes and insurance; reduced availability of mortgage financing, increased interest rates and increased competition in the mortgage industry; reductions in the market value of our investments in public companies; an extended slowdown in the real estate markets across the nation, including a slowdown in either the market for single family homes or the multifamily rental market; our inability to successfully execute our strategies, including our land lighter strategy and our strategy to monetize non-core assets; changes in general economic and financial conditions that reduce demand for our products and services, lower our profit margins or reduce our access to credit; our inability to acquire land at anticipated prices; the possibility that we will incur nonrecurring costs that affect earnings in one or more reporting periods; decreased demand for our homes or Multifamily rental properties; increased competition for home sales from other sellers of new and resale homes; our inability to pay down debt; government actions or other factors that might force us to terminate our program of repurchasing our stock; a decline in the value of our land inventories and resulting write-downs of the carrying value of our real estate assets; the failure of the participants in various joint ventures to honor their commitments; difficulty obtaining land-use entitlements or construction financing; natural disasters and other unforeseen events for which our insurance does not provide adequate coverage; new laws or regulatory changes that adversely affect the profitability of our businesses; our inability to refinance our debt on terms that are as favorable as our current arrangements; and changes in accounting conventions that adversely affect our reported earnings.
Please see our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2020 and our other filings with the SEC for a further discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties which could affect our future results. We undertake no obligation, other than those imposed by securities laws, to publicly revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of those statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

Outlook
The housing market remains strong. Demand has been strong while the supply of new and existing homes has remained constrained. New home construction cannot ramp up quickly enough to fill the void of the underproduction of homes for the past decade, and short supply is likely to remain for some time to come. The supply chain for both land and construction is significantly stressed. Given supply chain challenges, we believe the industry will not be able to quickly remedy the supply shortage with increased production. Accordingly, we expect the market to remain in its current imbalance for an extended period of time. We remain focused on orderly, targeted growth, with our sales pace tightly matched with our pace of production, which enables price appreciation to offset future cost escalations to maximize margins. Even though home prices have moved much higher, overall affordability remains strong as interest rates are still lower than they were a year ago. Personal savings for deposits are strong and wages seem to be rising faster than monthly payments. Millennials are moving out of their parents’ homes and forming families, while apartment dwellers are finding a first-time single-family home.
The housing market is not only strong, but it is also going through some structural changes that will promote stability in the market, and extend housing benefits to the breadth of a diverse society. The iBuyer and single-family for rent participants are providing additional liquidity to the marketplace to purchase and sell homes, as they evolve and provide ever more frictionless transactions. They are also solving important industry problems that have needed solutions for a very long time. The iBuyers, led by Opendoor, are becoming more than just a home sale option. They are an ever more effective and instrumental convenience provider, as the coordination of a new home is being complicated by supply chain disruption. Additionally, the single-family for rent participants, including our Upward America Venture, are also providing more liquidity while making a single-family home lifestyle accessible to more families. The solution to higher home prices causing affordability issues is building more housing and making a growing portion of that housing stock available to more families to rent if they cannot yet meet the requirements for home ownership. Professional ownership of homes enables renters to access a single-family lifestyle while they build the credentials to own. Better housing for families produces better outcomes for families and the industry is rewiring to provide those solutions.
The combined effects of this strong housing market along with structural changes, which we are in position to capitalize on through our strategic investments, puts Lennar in a position to continue to drive returns. We are focused on cash flow, debt reduction, stock buyback, land controlled versus owned, return on capital, and return on equity, and on innovative technologies. While we have been carefully managing our supply chain, the supply chain for both land and construction is significantly stressed. Accordingly, we expect our community count at the end of the 2021 fiscal year will be up only approximately 7% versus the 10% we previously guided. In addition, we expect our deliveries for the fourth quarter of 2021 will be approximately 18,000 versus the 19,000 to 21,000 we previously guided. We expect our gross margin to be about 28% and we expect our SG&A to be about 6.7% for the fourth quarter, though these amounts will move up or down a bit depending on the number of homes delivered. Our return on equity stands now at 21.9%, which is an 800 basis point improvement over last year. We have remained focused on our optioned versus owned land strategy. We ended the third quarter with a 3.3 years supply of land owned, compared to a 3.8 years supply of land owned at the same time last year, and our homesites controlled percentage increased to 53% from 35% in the prior year. Among other things, this has enabled us to reduce debt, such that our third quarter homebuilding debt-to-total capital ratio improved to 21.2%, from 29.5% in the prior year.
We have continued to work on the structural components and organization of our spin company. The new company will be configured as an independent and active asset management business that raises third-party capital to support ongoing business verticals. As previously noted, two of these verticals have already raised third-party capital, of which our subsidiaries are active asset managers. Our multifamily platform has approximately $9 billion of gross capital under management and is raising its third fund now. Our growing single family for rent platform currently manages approximately $1.25 billion of equity already raised. Both of these programs are neatly configured as independent, self-sustaining operations. Additionally, we have a dynamic and growing independent land and land management business that has been refined and we have a growing technology investment business, LENX, that is performing exceptionally well. We are considering including them, or at least portions of our investments in them, in the spin-off.
In spite of the miss of deliveries and the supply chain disruption that is affecting us and the industry, we believe we have never been better positioned financially, organizationally and technologically to thrive and grow in this evolving housing market demand. As we begin to look to 2022, we see continued strength in the market and double-digit growth in sales, starts, deliveries and community count for Lennar. The story remains that supply is short and demand is strong. Some are concerned that demand is slowing as prices move higher and interest rates move. It feels to us that sales are slowing because many sales were made early and the industry is building through those sales slower than expected. We believe that home production has been constrained for a decade and we are making up the deficit now, which should keep the housing market thriving for some time to come.

(1) Results of Operations
Overview
We historically have experienced, and expect to continue to experience, variability in quarterly results. Our results of operations for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Our homebuilding business is seasonal in nature and generally reflects higher levels of new home order activity in our second and third fiscal quarters and increased deliveries in the second half of our fiscal year. However, a variety of factors can alter seasonal patterns.
Our net earnings attributable to Lennar were $1.4 billion, or $4.52 per diluted share ($4.52 per basic share), in the third quarter of 2021, compared to net earnings attributable to Lennar of $666.4 million, or $2.12 per diluted share ($2.13 per basic share), in the third quarter of 2020. Our net earnings attributable to Lennar were $3.2 billion, or $10.36 per diluted share ($10.37 per basic share), in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to net earnings attributable to Lennar of $1.6 billion, or $5.03 per diluted share ($5.05 per basic share), in the nine months ended August 31, 2020.

Revenues from home sales increased 19% in the third quarter of 2021 to $6.5 billion from $5.5 billion in the third quarter of 2020. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 10% increase in the number of home deliveries and an 8% increase in the average sales price. New home deliveries increased to 15,199 homes in the third quarter of 2021 from 13,842 homes in the third quarter of 2020. The average sales price of homes delivered was $428,000 in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $396,000 in the third quarter of 2020.
Gross margin on home sales were $1.8 billion, or 27.3%, in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $1.3 billion, or 23.1%, in the third quarter of 2020. The gross margin percentage on home sales increased primarily as a result of price appreciation as the increase in revenue per square foot outpaced the increase in cost per square foot.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $453.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $435.9 million in the third quarter of 2020. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 7.0% in the third quarter of 2021, from 8.0% in the third quarter of 2020. This was the lowest percentage for a quarter in our history primarily due to a decrease in broker commissions and benefits of our technology efforts.
Operating earnings for our Financial Services segment were $111.9 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $135.1 million in the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in operating earnings was primarily due to lower mortgage net margins driven by an increase in competition. This was partially offset by an increase in title operating earnings due to higher volume and an increase in profit per transaction derived from technology initiatives.
Operating loss for our Multifamily segment was $9.4 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $5.1 million in the third quarter of 2020. Operating earnings for our Lennar Other segment was $492.0 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2020. In the third quarter of 2021, we recorded mark to market gains on our investments in newly public companies (Hippo, SmartRent and Blend) of $433 million and on our current investments (Opendoor and Sunnova) of $61 million.
Nine Months Ended August 31, 2021 versus Nine Months Ended August 31, 2020
Revenues from home sales increased 20% in the nine months ended August 31, 2021 to $17.4 billion from $14.5 billion in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. Revenues were higher primarily due to a 14% increase in the number of home deliveries and a 5% increase in the average sales price. New home deliveries increased to 42,006 homes in the nine months ended August 31, 2021 from 36,835 homes in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. The average sales price of homes

delivered was $414,000 in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to $395,000 in the nine months ended August 31, 2020.
Gross margin on home sales were $4.6 billion, or 26.2%, in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to $3.2 billion or 21.8%, in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. The gross margin percentage on home sales increased primarily as a result of price appreciation as the increase in revenue per square foot outpaced the increase in cost per square foot. Gross margin on land sales in the nine months ended August 31, 2021 was $17.9 million, compared to a loss of $21.9 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. The loss in the nine months ended August 31, 2020 was primarily due to a write-off of costs in the second quarter of 2020 as a result of Lennar not moving forward with a naval base development in Concord, California, northeast of San Francisco.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1.3 billion in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to $1.2 billion in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. As a percentage of revenues from home sales, selling, general and administrative expenses improved to 7.6% in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, from 8.4% in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. The improvement was primarily due to a decrease in broker commissions and benefits of our technology efforts.
Operating earnings for our Financial Services segment were $379.3 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to $343.8 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2020 (which included $329.7 million operating earnings and an add back of $14.1 million net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests). The nine months ended August 31, 2020 included a $61.4 million gain on the deconsolidation of a previously consolidated entity. Excluding this gain, the improvement in operating earnings was primarily due to an increase in volume and margin in the mortgage and title businesses.
Operating earnings for our Multifamily segment were $12.1 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to an operating loss of $4.0 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. Operating earnings for our Lennar Other segment were $909.2 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2021, compared to an operating loss of $9.1 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2020. The operating earnings for the nine months ended August 31, 2021 was primarily due to mark to market gains on strategic investments that went public during the nine months ended August 31, 2021 (Opendoor, Hippo, SmartRent and Blend) and the sale of our solar business to Sunnova.

Backlog represents the number of homes under sales contracts. Homes are sold using sales contracts, which are generally accompanied by sales deposits. In some instances, purchasers are permitted to cancel sales if they fail to qualify for financing or under certain other circumstances. Various state and federal laws and regulations may sometimes give purchasers a right to cancel homes in backlog. We do not recognize revenue on homes under sales contracts until the sales are closed and title passes to the new homeowners.

The segment also originates and sells into securitizations commercial mortgage loans through its LMF Commercial business. Our Financial Services segment sells substantially all of the residential loans it originates within a short period in the secondary mortgage market, the majority of which are sold on a servicing released, non-recourse basis. After the loans are sold, we retain potential liability for possible claims by purchasers that we breached certain limited industry-standard representations and warranties in the loan sale agreements.
The following table sets forth selected financial and operational information related to the residential mortgage and title activities of our Financial Services segment:

Details of these securities and related debt are within Note 2 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Multifamily Segment
We have been actively involved, primarily through unconsolidated entities, in the development, construction and property management of multifamily rental properties. Our Multifamily segment focuses on developing a geographically diversified portfolio of institutional quality multifamily rental properties in select U.S. markets.
Originally, our Multifamily segment focused on building multifamily properties and selling them shortly after they were completed. However, more recently we have focused on creating and participating in ventures that build multifamily properties with the intention of retaining them after they are completed.

Lennar Other Segment
At August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, we had $1.7 billion and $521.7 million, respectively, of assets in our Lennar Other segment, which included investments in unconsolidated entities of $387.5 million and $387.1 million, respectively. The increase in assets during the nine months ended August 31, 2021 was due to an increase in the value of our strategic technology investments, primarily managed by our LENX subsidiary. This increase was largely related to our strategic investments in Hippo, SmartRent, Opendoor and Sunnova. During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, we completed the sale of our residential solar business to Sunnova for shares in the entity.

(2) Financial Condition and Capital Resources
At August 31, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash related to our homebuilding, financial services, multifamily and other operations of $2.8 billion, compared to $2.9 billion at November 30, 2020 and $2.2 billion at August 31, 2020.
We finance all of our activities, including homebuilding, financial services, multifamily, other and general operating needs, primarily with cash generated from our operations, debt issuances and cash borrowed under our warehouse lines of credit and our unsecured revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility").
Operating Cash Flow Activities
During the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, cash provided by operating activities totaled $1.3 billion and $2.9 billion, respectively. During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, cash provided by operating activities was impacted primarily by our net earnings, net of Lennar Other unrealized/realized gain of $847.4 million primarily due to mark to market gains on strategic investments that went public during the nine months ended August 31, 2021, (Opendoor, Sunnova, Hippo, SmartRent and Blend) and the sale of our solar business to Sunnova. In addition there was a decrease in loans held-for-sale of $209.3 million primarily related to the sale of loans originated by our Financial Services segment, an increase in accounts payable and other liabilities of $514.0 million, and a decrease in receivables of $131.3 million, partially offset by an increase in inventories due to strategic land purchases, land development and construction costs of $2.3 billion.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2020, cash provided by operating activities was impacted primarily by our net earnings, a decrease in loans held-for-sale of $557.8 million primarily related to the sale of loans originated by Financial Services, a decrease in receivables of $264.6 million and an increase in accounts payable and other liabilities of $165.6 million, partially offset by an increase in other assets of $124.6 million.

Investing Cash Flow Activities
During the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, cash used in investing activities totaled $131.2 million and $267.5 million, respectively. During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, our cash used in investing activities was primarily due to cash contributions of $354.6 million to unconsolidated entities, which included (1) $164.0 million to Homebuilding unconsolidated entities, (2) $66.8 million to Multifamily unconsolidated entities, and (3) $123.8 million to the strategic technology investments included in the Lennar Other segment. This was partially offset by distributions of capital from unconsolidated entities of $292.5 million, which primarily included (1) $159.3 million from Homebuilding unconsolidated entities, (2) $107.2 million from Multifamily unconsolidated entities, and (3) $26.0 million from the unconsolidated Rialto real estate funds included in our Lennar Other segment.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2020, our cash used in investing activities was primarily due to cash contributions of $412.5 million to unconsolidated entities and deconsolidation of a previously consolidated entity, which included (1) $86.9 million to Homebuilding unconsolidated entities, (2) $122.7 million to Multifamily unconsolidated entities, (3) $50.3 million to the strategic technology investments included in the Lennar Other segment; and (4) the derecognition of $152.5 million of cash as of the date of deconsolidation of a previously consolidated Financial Services entity. This was partially offset by distributions of capital from unconsolidated entities of $135.7 million, which primarily included (1) $58.3 million from Homebuilding unconsolidated entities, (2) $39.1 million from the unconsolidated Rialto real estate funds included in our Lennar Other segment; and (3) $38.3 million from Multifamily unconsolidated entities.
Financing Cash Flow Activities
During the nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020, cash used in financing activities totaled $1.3 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively. During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, cash used in financing activities was primarily impacted by (1) $357.5 million of net repayments under our Financial Services' warehouse facilities, which included the LMF Commercial warehouse repurchase facilities; (2) the redemption of $300.0 million aggregate principal amount of our senior notes; (3) $234.0 million of dividend payments; and (4) repurchases of our common stock for $452.5 million, which included $388.0 million of repurchases under our repurchase program and $64.6 million of repurchases related to our equity compensation plan. These were partially offset by $441.2 million of proceeds from liabilities related to consolidated inventory not owned due to land sales to land banks.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2020, cash used in financing activities was primarily impacted by (1) $789.3 million of net repayments under our Financial Services' warehouse facilities, which included the LMF Commercial warehouse repurchase facilities; (2) $550.3 million of principal payments on notes payable and other borrowings; (3) the redemption of $313.0 million aggregate principal amount of our senior notes; and (4) repurchases of our common stock for $319.0 million, which included $288.5 million of repurchases under our repurchase program and $30.3 million of repurchases related to our equity compensation plan. These were partially offset by $175.6 million of receipts related to noncontrolling interests.
Debt to total capital ratios are financial measures commonly used in the homebuilding industry and are presented to assist in understanding the leverage of our homebuilding operations. Homebuilding debt to total capital and net Homebuilding debt to total capital are calculated as follows:
(Dollars in thousands)August 31, 2021November 30, 2020August 31, 2020
Homebuilding debt$5,542,513 5,955,758 7,180,274

Net Homebuilding debt to total capital (1)12.4 %15.3 %23.3 %
(1)Net homebuilding debt to total capital is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net homebuilding debt (homebuilding debt less homebuilding cash and cash equivalents) divided by total capital (net homebuilding debt plus stockholders' equity). We believe the ratio of net homebuilding debt to total capital is a relevant and a useful financial measure to investors in understanding the leverage employed in homebuilding operations. However, because net homebuilding debt to total capital is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, this financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures prescribed by GAAP. Rather, this non-GAAP financial measure should be used to supplement our GAAP results.
At August 31, 2021, Homebuilding debt to total capital was lower compared to November 30, 2020 and August 31, 2020, primarily as a result of a decrease in Homebuilding debt and an increase in stockholders' equity due to net earnings.

We are continually exploring various types of transactions to manage our leverage and liquidity positions, take advantage of market opportunities and increase our revenues and earnings. These transactions may include the issuance of additional indebtedness, the repurchase of our outstanding indebtedness, the repurchase of our common stock, the acquisition of homebuilders and other companies, the purchase or sale of assets or lines of business, the issuance of common stock or securities convertible into shares of common stock, and/or the pursuit of other financing alternatives. In connection with some of our non-homebuilding businesses, we are also considering other types of transactions such as sales, restructurings, joint ventures, spin-offs or initial public offerings as we continue to move back towards being a pure play homebuilding company.
Our Homebuilding senior notes and other debts payable as well as letters of credit and surety bonds are summarized within Note 7 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Our Homebuilding average debt outstanding and the average rates of interest was as follows:

Subsequent to August 31, 2021, we provided notice that we would redeem on October 15, 2021 our $600 million 4.125% senior unsecured notes, which have a scheduled maturity of January 15, 2022.
As of August 31, 2021, the maximum borrowings on our Credit Facility were $2.5 billion and included a $300 million accordion feature, subject to additional commitments, thus the maximum borrowings could be $2.8 billion maturing in 2024. The Credit Facility agreement (the "Credit Agreement") provides that up to $500 million in commitments may be used for letters of credit. Under the Credit Agreement, we are subject to debt covenants. The maturity, details and debt covenants of the Credit Facility are unchanged from the disclosure in the Financial Condition and Capital Resources section of our Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2020. The following summarizes our debt covenant requirements and our actual levels or ratios with respect to those covenants as calculated per the Credit Agreement as of August 31, 2021:

Financial Services Warehouse Facilities
Our Financial Services segment uses the residential facilities to finance its residential lending activities until the mortgage loans are sold to investors and the proceeds are collected. The facilities are non-recourse to us and are expected to be renewed or replaced with other facilities when they mature. The LMF Commercial facilities finance LMF Commercial loan origination and securitization activities and were secured by up to an 80% interest in the originated commercial loans financed. These facilities and the related borrowings and collateral are detailed in Note 2 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Changes in Capital Structure
In January 2021, our Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to the lesser of $1.0 billion in value, or 25 million in shares, of our outstanding Class A and Class B common stock. The repurchase authorization replaced a January 2019 authorization and has no expiration date. The details of our Class A and Class B common stock under this program for both the three and nine months ended August 31, 2021 and 2020 are included in Note 4 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2021, treasury stock increased due to our repurchase of 4.8 million shares of Class A and Class B common stock due primarily to our repurchase of 4.0 million shares of Class A and Class B common stock through our stock repurchase program. During the nine months ended August 31, 2020, treasury stock increased due to our repurchase of 4.4 million shares of Class A and Class B common stock through our stock repurchase program.
On September 29, 2021, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share on both our Class A and Class B common stock, payable on October 28, 2021 to holders of record at the close of business on October 14, 2021. On July 19, 2021, we paid cash dividends of $0.25 per share on both our Class A and Class B common stock to holders of record at the close of business on July 2, 2021, as declared by our Board of Directors on June 18, 2021. We approved and paid cash dividends of $0.125 per share for each of the first three quarters of 2020 and $0.25 per share in the fourth quarter of 2020 and each of the first three quarters of 2021 on both our Class A and Class B common stock.

Based on our current financial condition and credit relationships, we believe that our operations and borrowing resources will provide for our current and long-term capital requirements at our anticipated levels of activity.
Supplemental Financial Information
Currently, substantially all of our 100% owned homebuilding subsidiaries are guaranteeing all our senior notes. The guarantees are full and unconditional.
The indentures governing our senior notes require that, if any of our 100% owned subsidiaries, other than our finance company subsidiaries and foreign subsidiaries, directly or indirectly guarantee at least $75 million principal amount of debt of Lennar Corporation (other than senior notes), those subsidiaries must also guarantee Lennar Corporation’s obligations with regard to its senior notes. Included in the following tables as part of “Obligors” together with Lennar Corporation are subsidiary entities that are not finance company subsidiaries or foreign subsidiaries and were guaranteeing the senior notes because at August 31, 2021 they were guaranteeing Lennar Corporation's letter of credit facilities and its Credit Facility, disclosed in Note 7 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. The guarantees are full, unconditional and joint and several and the guarantor subsidiaries are 100% directly or indirectly owned by Lennar Corporation. A subsidiary's guarantee of Lennar senior notes will be suspended at any time when it is not directly or indirectly guaranteeing at least $75 million principal amount of debt of Lennar Corporation (other than senior notes), and a subsidiary will be released from its guarantee and any other obligations it may have regarding the senior notes if all or substantially all its assets, or all of its capital stock, are sold or otherwise disposed.
Supplemental information for the Obligors, which excludes non-guarantor subsidiaries and intercompany transactions, at August 31, 2021 is included in the following tables. Intercompany balances and transactions within the Obligors have been eliminated and amounts attributable to the Obligor’s investment in consolidated subsidiaries that have not issued or guaranteed the senior notes have been excluded. Amounts due from and transactions with nonobligor subsidiaries and related parties are separately disclosed:

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
Homebuilding: Investments in Unconsolidated Entities
As of August 31, 2021, we had equity investments in 40 active homebuilding and land unconsolidated entities (of which three had recourse debt, 11 had non-recourse debt and 26 had no debt) compared to 38 active homebuilding and land unconsolidated entities at November 30, 2020. Historically, we have invested in unconsolidated entities that acquired and developed land (1) for our homebuilding operations or for sale to third parties or (2) for the construction of homes for sale to third-party homebuyers. Through these entities, we have primarily sought to reduce and share our risk by limiting the amount of our capital invested in land, while obtaining access to potential future homesites and allowing us to participate in strategic ventures. The use of these entities also, in some instances, has enabled us to acquire land to which we could not otherwise obtain access, or could not obtain access on as favorable terms, without the participation of a strategic partner. Participants in these joint ventures have been land owners/developers, other homebuilders and financial or strategic partners. Joint ventures with land owners/developers have given us access to homesites owned or controlled by our partners. Joint ventures with other homebuilders have provided us with the ability to bid jointly with our partners for large land parcels. Joint ventures with financial partners have allowed us to combine our homebuilding expertise with access to our partners’ capital. Joint ventures with strategic partners have allowed us to combine our homebuilding expertise with the specific expertise (e.g. commercial or infill experience) of our partners. Each joint venture is governed by an executive committee consisting of members from the partners. Details regarding these investments, balances and debt are included in Note 3 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

The following table summarizes the principal maturities of our Homebuilding unconsolidated entities ("JVs") debt as per current debt arrangements as of August 31, 2021 and it does not represent estimates of future cash payments that will be made to reduce debt balances. Many JV loans have extension options in the loan agreements that would allow the loans to be extended into future years.

Multifamily: Investments in Unconsolidated Entities
At August 31, 2021, Multifamily had equity investments in 18 unconsolidated entities that are engaged in multifamily residential developments (of which 11 had non-recourse debt and seven had no debt), compared to 22 unconsolidated entities at November 30, 2020. We invest in unconsolidated entities that acquire and develop land to construct multifamily rental properties. Through these entities, we are focusing on developing a geographically diversified portfolio of institutional quality multifamily rental properties in select U.S. markets. Initially, we participated in building multifamily developments and selling them soon after they were completed. Recently, however, we have been focused on developing properties with the intention of retaining them. Participants in these joint ventures have been financial partners. Joint ventures with financial partners have allowed us to combine our development and construction expertise with access to our partners’ capital. Each joint venture is governed by an operating agreement that provides significant substantive participating voting rights on major decisions to our partners.
The Multifamily segment includes LMV I and LMV II, which are long-term multifamily development investment vehicles involved in the development, construction and property management of class-A multifamily assets. Details of each as of and during the nine months ended August 31, 2021 are included in Note 3 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
We regularly monitor the results of both our Homebuilding and Multifamily unconsolidated joint ventures and any trends that may affect their future liquidity or results of operations. We also monitor the performance of joint ventures in which we have investments on a regular basis to assess compliance with debt covenants. For those joint ventures not in compliance with the debt covenants, we evaluate and assess possible impairment of our investment. We believe all of the joint ventures were in compliance with applicable debt covenants at August 31, 2021.
The following table summarizes the principal maturities of our Multifamily unconsolidated entities debt as per current debt arrangements as of August 31, 2021 and it does not represent estimates of future cash payments that will be made to reduce debt balances.

Lennar Other: Investments in Unconsolidated Entities
As part of the sale of the Rialto investment and asset management platform, we retained our ability to receive a portion of payments with regard to carried interests if funds meet specified performance thresholds. We periodically receive advance distributions related to the carried interests in order to cover income tax obligations resulting from allocations of taxable income to the carried interests. These distributions are not subject to clawbacks but will reduce future carried interest payments to which we become entitled from the applicable funds and have been recorded as revenues.
As of August 31, 2021 and November 30, 2020, we had strategic technology investments in unconsolidated entities of $187.6 million and $196.7 million, respectively.
Option Contracts
We often obtain access to land through option contracts, which generally enable us to control portions of properties owned by third parties (including land funds) and unconsolidated entities until we have determined whether to exercise the options.

The table below indicates the number of homesites owned and homesites to which we had access through option contracts with third parties ("optioned") or unconsolidated JVs (i.e., controlled homesites):

Contractual Obligations and Commercial Commitments
Our contractual obligations and commercial commitments have not changed materially from those reported in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2020. There were no outstanding borrowings under our Credit Facility as of August 31, 2021.
(3) New Accounting Pronouncements
See Note 1 of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included under Item 1 of this Report for a discussion of new accounting pronouncements applicable to our company.
(4) Critical Accounting Policies
We believe that there have been no significant changes to our critical accounting policies during the nine months ended August 31, 2021 as compared to those we disclosed in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, for the year ended November 30, 2020.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
We are exposed to market risks related to fluctuations in interest rates on our investments, debt obligations, loans held-for-sale and loans held-for-investment. We utilize forward commitments and option contracts to mitigate the risks associated with our mortgage loan portfolio.
As of August 31, 2021, we had no outstanding borrowings under our Credit Facility.
As of August 31, 2021, our borrowings under Financial Services' warehouse repurchase facilities totaled $900.3 million under residential facilities and $55.0 million under LMF Commercial facilities.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Each of our Co-Chief Executive Officers and Co-Presidents ("Co-CEOs") and Chief Financial Officer participated in an evaluation by our management of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on their participation in that evaluation, our Co-CEOs and CFO concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of August 31, 2021 to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or furnished under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is accumulated and communicated to our management, including both of our Co-CEOs and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
Both of our Co-CEOs and CFO also participated in an evaluation by our management of any changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended August 31, 2021. That evaluation did not identify any changes that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
Part II. Other Information

Item 1. Legal Proceedings
We are party to various claims and lawsuits which arise in the ordinary course of business, but we do not consider the volume of our claims and lawsuits unusual given the number of homes we deliver and the fact that the lawsuits often relate to homes delivered several years before the lawsuits are commenced. Although the specific allegations in the lawsuits differ, they most commonly involve claims that we failed to construct homes in particular communities in accordance with plans and specifications or applicable construction codes and seek reimbursement for sums allegedly needed to remedy the alleged deficiencies, assert contract issues or relate to personal injuries. Lawsuits of these types are common within the homebuilding industry. We are a plaintiff in a number of cases in which we seek contribution from our subcontractors for home repair costs. The costs incurred by us in construction defect lawsuits may be offset by warranty reserves, our third-party insurers,

subcontractor insurers or indemnity contributions from subcontractors. From time to time, we are also a party to lawsuits involving purchases and sales of real property. These lawsuits often include claims regarding representations and warranties made in connection with the transfer of the property and disputes regarding the obligation to purchase or sell the property. From time-to-time, we also receive notices from environmental agencies or other regulators regarding alleged violations of environmental or other laws. We typically settle these matters before they reach litigation for amounts that are not material to us.
We do not believe that the ultimate resolution of these claims or lawsuits will have a material adverse effect on our business or financial position.
