Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Results

PHOENIX, Oct. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:CVCO) today announced financial results for the second quarter and first six months ended September 27, 2014 of its fiscal year 2015.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $139.3 million, up 7.3% from $129.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014. Net revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2015 was $278.5 million, up 5.6% from $263.8 million for the comparable prior year period.
  • Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders was $5.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to $4.3 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year. For the first six months of fiscal 2015, net income attributable to Cavco stockholders was $11.2 million, compared to $6.1 million during the first six months of the last fiscal year. The prior fiscal year amounts were after a deduction of $0.4 million and $2.5 million for the three and six months ended, respectively, of net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interest, which was eliminated in July 2013 in relation to the buyout of all redeemable noncontrolling interest, as previously reported.
  • Net income per share attributable to Cavco stockholders for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding was $0.62 and $0.61, respectively, versus $0.51 and $0.50, respectively, for the prior year second quarter. Net income per share attributable to Cavco stockholders for the six months ended September 27, 2014, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding was $1.27 and $1.25, respectively, versus $0.80 and $0.79, respectively, for the prior year six month period.

Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Cavco is pleased to report further modest earnings improvement in the continually challenging housing environment. We believe that demand for manufactured housing is improving, but adverse economic factors and constrained credit, in part related to government regulations, have limited the ability of many people to buy homes. Home sales activity has been more robust in markets with higher levels of consumer confidence and stronger employment gains. In all regions, however, home loan underwriting requirements continue to be especially stringent for buyers of affordable homes and the availability of manufactured home lending options has been constrained."

"Given these circumstances, Cavco's primary objective is to produce homes that are responsive to a variety of home buyer living preferences and housing needs. This means meeting affordability and financing requirements through concentrated efforts, including production efficiency and flexibility in home design and pricing. This also means strict attention to construction quality and responsive warranty services to ensure lasting value from each residence," Mr. Stegmayer concluded.

Cavco's management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, October 31, 2014, at 1:00 PM (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.
