Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2016 Second Quarter Results

PHOENIX, Oct. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO) today announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended September 26, 2015. This quarter's financial statements include the operations of two regional manufactured home builders acquired during the first quarter of fiscal year 2016. 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 Company also purchased certain assets and liabilities of Fairmont Homes, 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.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016 totaled $192.0 million, up 37.8% from $139.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015. Net revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2016 was $353.6 million, up 27.0% from $278.5 million for the comparable prior year period. The increase was largely from homes sold by the new operations acquired this fiscal year and also from higher overall sales volume.
  • Income before income taxes was $12.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, a $3.8 million increase from $8.7 million reported in the comparable quarter last year. For the first six months of fiscal 2016, income before income taxes increased $3.5 million to $21.1 million compared to $17.6 million for the comparable period in the prior year. Income before income taxes increased mainly from home sales volume during the quarter at the newly acquired factories as well as from pre-existing operations.
  • Net income was $8.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, compared to $5.5 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year. For the six months ended September 26, 2015, net income was $13.5 million, up $2.3 million from $11.2 million for the first six months of fiscal 2015.
  • Net income per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $0.91 and $0.89, respectively, versus $0.62 and $0.61, respectively for the comparable quarter last year. Net income per share for the six months ended September 26, 2015, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $1.52 and $1.49, respectively, versus $1.27 and $1.25, respectively, for the prior year six month period.

Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased to report improved results this quarter. Home sales activity has been growing and our operations have been successful in capturing additional sales volume. The integrations of the recently purchased Fairmont Homes and Chariot Eagle operations are progressing as expected. The newly acquired operations are producing affordable housing solutions complementary to Cavco's growing home product lineup while expanding our geographic footprint. In addition to these new businesses, a variety of U.S. housing indicators give us confidence in further organic growth potential and we believe the Company is well positioned to take advantage of increasing demand for affordable housing."
