Lennar Corporation revealed earnings for fourth quarter that dropped from last year.
Analysts had expected the company to earn $1.48 per share, according figures compiled by Thomson Reuters. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.
The company said revenue for the quarter rose 12.1% to $3.79 billion. This was up from $3.38 billion last year.
Stuart Miller, chief executive officer of Lennar Corporation, said, "We are pleased to announce a strong fourth quarter and fiscal 2017, as we continued to execute on our strategies in all of our operating businesses.
"Although we missed fourth quarter, bottom-line guidance because a single, strategic transaction shifted into the first quarter of 2018, our core operating performance exceeded expectations. The proceeds from the shifted transaction will now benefit from a much lower federal tax rate." ■
