PHOENIX, Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:CVCO) today announced financial results for the second quarter and first six months ended September 28, 2013 of fiscal year 2014.

Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled $129.8 million, up 17.9% from $110.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $4.7 million compared to $2.7 million reported in the same quarter one year ago.

Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $4.3 million, compared to net income of $1.3 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year. Net income per share based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the quarter ended September 28, 2013 was $0.51 and $0.50, respectively, versus $0.18 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The effective income tax rate for the second fiscal quarter was approximately 30% compared to approximately 39% during the same quarter last year. The lower income tax rate this quarter resulted primarily from recording the expected net deferred income tax benefits from the noncontrolling interest buyout transaction completed during the second quarter, as further described below, and certain income tax credits.

For the first six months of fiscal 2014, net sales totaled $263.8 million, up 15.3% from $228.9 million for the comparable prior year period. Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for the first half of fiscal 2014 was $6.1 million, compared to $2.1 million last year. For the six months ended September 28, 2013, net income per share based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding was $0.80 and $0.79, respectively, versus basic and diluted net income per share of $0.30 for the prior year period.

During the second fiscal 2014 quarter and as previously disclosed, Cavco completed the purchase of all noncontrolling interests in Fleetwood Homes, Inc., a jointly-owned corporation formed in 2009 by Cavco and Third Avenue Value Fund. Fleetwood Homes, Inc., a Cavco subsidiary, owns Fleetwood Homes, Palm Harbor Homes, CountryPlace Mortgage and Standard Casualty Company. As consideration for the 50% interest that it did not already own, Cavco paid $91.4 million in its common stock. The resulting issuance of 1,867,370 shares increased the total number of common shares outstanding to 8,837,324. Historically, 50% of the financial results of these businesses have been recorded as attributable to Cavco's common stockholders in the consolidated financial statements. As of July 22, 2013, Cavco owns 100% of these businesses and is therefore entitled to all of the associated earnings from that date forward.

Commenting on the quarterly financial statements, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "The improved earnings per share results were positively influenced by Cavco's buyout of all noncontrolling interests, which occurred early in the quarter. In addition, our stockholders' equity balance increased 58% from the March 30, 2013 balance to approximately $279 million, primarily resulting from the transaction. We expect the Company's improved financial statement condition will support further growth in all facets of our business: home building, retail sales of homes, mortgage lending, and insurance services."

"Revenue growth from higher home sales volume continued during Cavco's second fiscal quarter. The overall response from manufactured home retailers, developers, and homeowners to our blend of product offerings has been positive. We are now entering the seasonally slower winter months and the health of the general economy remains fragile; still, we believe that we are in position to generate improved results compared to last year's third quarter," Mr. Stegmayer concluded.

Cavco's management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, November 1, 2013, at 12:00 noon (Eastern Time). Interested parties can access a live webcast of the conference call on the Internet at under the Investor Relations link. An archive of the webcast and presentation will be available for 90 days at under the Investor Relations link.
