The BusinessWeek 50 Ranking

26

D. R. Horton

REVENUE AND profit have risen every quarter since D.R. Horton’s founding in 1978. And execs at the Fort Worth company are confident of hitting their target of 100,000 homes sold in 2010, double their industry-leading sales of 2005. “The skeptics are dead wrong,” says CEO Tomnitz. “The next five years will be a lot easier than the last 28.” If housing continues to soften, Horton’s emphasis on efficiency and on wringing concessions from suppliers should help it undercut other builders. It also has its strongest balance sheet ever. One risk: 28% of last year’s unsold land and homes was in bubbly California.
