Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2016 First Quarter Results

PHOENIX, Aug. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO) today announced financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended June 27, 2015. The financial statements include the operations of two regional manufactured home builders acquired during the fiscal quarter. On March 30, 2015, the Company purchased certain assets and liabilities of Chariot Eagle, which produces park model RVs and manufactured homes distributed in the Southeastern United States. The previously announced May 1, 2015 purchase of certain assets and liabilities of Fairmont Homes added a premier builder of manufactured and modular homes and park model RVs serving the Midwest, western Great Plains states, the Northeast and several provinces in Canada. Since their respective acquisition dates, the financial impact and fiscal quarter results from these new businesses are included in Cavco's consolidated financial statements presented herein.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 totaled $161.7 million, up 16.2% from $139.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. The increase was largely from homes sold by the new operations acquired during the quarter and also from higher overall sales volume.
  • Income before income taxes was $8.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, a $0.3 million decrease from $8.9 million reported in the comparable quarter last year. Income before income taxes in the financial services segment, comprised of the mortgage and insurance subsidiaries, decreased $0.7 million from the same period last year, even though the finance subsidiary's earnings improved from the prior period. The net decline was directly caused by the manufactured home insurance subsidiary's high claims volume generated by record setting storms in Texas. While claims activity typically spikes in April and May, a prime season for storm activity in the area, the severity of the hail and wind storms and the damage to insured homes were considerably greater than anticipated. According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Texas rainfall for the first 6 months of 2015 was 80% higher than average, marking the wettest year-to-date ever measured in the state. Losses from these catastrophic events were somewhat mitigated by reinsurance contracts in place.
  • Net income was $5.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016, compared to $5.8 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year.
  • Net income per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $0.61 and $0.60, respectively, versus $0.65 and $0.64, respectively for the quarter ended June 28, 2014.

Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "During the quarter, Cavco began folding the Fairmont Homes and Chariot Eagle operations into the Company. We continue to be excited about the opportunities these businesses bring to our family of companies and expect future revenue and earnings growth as the integration process continues."

"The financial services segment's earnings were significantly impacted this quarter by unpredictably high insurance claims activity. However, the business has been a solid performer for the Company over time despite occasional periods of high claim experience. The home insurance subsidiary continues to be a good business for the overall organization and one that is complementary to our factory-built housing operations."

Mr. Stegmayer concluded, "The Company has expanded to provide a broad range of systems-built housing solutions in most of the key market regions in the United States and Canada. Meanwhile, Cavco has maintained a solid financial structure to support continued growth. While the manufactured housing industry is still faced with challenging economic and regulatory conditions, we believe that our organization is well positioned in the current environment as well as for the longer term."

Cavco's management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, August 6, 2015, at 11:00 AM (Eastern Daylight Time).
