PHOENIX, July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:CVCO) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended June 28, 2014 of its fiscal year 2015.

Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $139.2 million, up 3.9% from $134.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014. Net income for the fiscal 2015 first quarter was $5.8 million compared to $3.9 million reported in the same quarter one year ago.

Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for the fiscal 2015 first quarter was $5.8 million, compared to net income of $1.8 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year. The prior year amount was after deduction for the $2.0 million of net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interest. As previously reported, Cavco purchased the noncontrolling interest during the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 and now owns 100% of its consolidated subsidiaries; accordingly, all of the fiscal 2015 first quarter consolidated net income is attributable to Cavco stockholders. Net income per share attributable to Cavco stockholders based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the quarter ended June 28, 2014 was $0.65 and $0.64, respectively, versus basic and diluted net income per share attributable to Cavco stockholders of $0.26 for the prior year period.

Commenting on the quarter, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to begin the new fiscal year with improved results in the first fiscal quarter compared to the same quarter last year. It is important to note, however, that net income attributable to Cavco Stockholders in last year's first quarter excluded approximately $2 million of net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, which accounts for approximately one-half of the improvement. Overall, Cavco benefited from sequentially higher home sales volume and increased regular order backlog during the first fiscal quarter. The larger backlog level enhanced production efficiencies in our systems-based homebuilding operations."

Mr. Stegmayer continued, "Cavco's outlook continues to be positive. We believe the geographic markets in which we operate have good potential for increased manufactured housing demand. However, improvements in important macro-economic factors such as consumer confidence and employment levels continue to be slower and less consistent than needed to foster greater household formation rates and home ownership levels."

Mr. Stegmayer concluded, "Cavco's home distribution network is made up of independent and company-owned locations that work collaboratively with our homebuilding production teams that have the experience to be flexible and adaptive to local building requirements and preferences. We consistently develop new and innovative product designs that appeal to a broad range of customer housing trends. Combined with the additional product offerings and services of our finance and insurance businesses, we believe Cavco is well positioned for future growth."

Cavco's management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, August 1, 2014, 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.
