Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2016 Fourth Quarter and Year End Results

PHOENIX, May 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:CVCO) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended April 2, 2016. The financial statements include the operations of two regional manufactured home builders acquired during the first quarter of fiscal 2016: Chariot Eagle, which primarily produces park model RVs; and Fairmont Homes, a premier builder of manufactured and modular homes and park model RVs.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 totaled $177.3 million, up 25.6% from $141.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Net revenue for fiscal year 2016 was $712.4 million, 25.7% higher than $566.7 million for the prior fiscal year. The increase was from homes sold by newly acquired businesses this fiscal year and higher home sales volume at pre-existing operations.

  • Income before income taxes was $10.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, a 19.8% increase over $9.1 million reported in last year's fourth fiscal quarter. For the fiscal year ended April 2, 2016, income before income taxes increased 22.6% to $44.0 million as compared to the prior fiscal year's income before income taxes, as adjusted to exclude a net gain from asset sales, of $35.9 million.

  • Net income was $7.0 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, compared to $6.0 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year, a 16.7% increase. For the fiscal year ended April 2, 2016, net income was $28.5 million, up 24.5% from adjusted net income of $22.9 million for the year ended March 28, 2015.

  • Net income per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $0.78 and $0.77, respectively, versus $0.67 and $0.66, respectively for the quarter ended March 28, 2015. Net income per share for the year ended April 2, 2016, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $3.21 and $3.15, respectively, versus adjusted basic and diluted net income per share of $2.59 and $2.54, respectively, for the prior year.

Adjusted amounts described above relate to a net gain of $1.4 million on the sale of idle properties recorded in Other income, net during the year ended March 28, 2015. These adjustments are reconciled to the relevant U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measures in the tables at the end of this press release.

Commenting on the earnings release, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased to report year-over-year improvement in our financial results this quarter. With Cavco's broad market reach and expanded line of manufactured home products, we look forward to the traditionally stronger spring and summer selling season that has already begun. The Company is well positioned to take advantage of reported overall demand growth for new single family homes."

In addition, Cavco was recently honored as 2016’s Manufacturer of the Year by the Manufactured Housing Institute, as voted by its peers, for the seventh consecutive year. Mr. Stegmayer concluded, "Receiving the MHI Manufacturer of the Year award from our industry peers is an extreme honor. This award is a testament to our associates’ commitment to product innovation, quality and high customer satisfaction. We believe that homebuyers look for value and long term enjoyment when selecting their home. The Cavco companies have spent more than 60 years creating a brand dedicated to delivering quality, value and exceptional customer service."

Cavco’s management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, May 27, 2016, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time). Interested parties can access a live webcast of the conference call on the Internet at under the Investor Relations link.

We prepare our financial statements in accordance with GAAP. Within this press release, we make reference to adjusted income before income taxes, adjusted net income, and adjusted net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow evaluation of the financial results of the Company excluding the impact of certain items and facilitate comparisons of prior periods. These measures should be reviewed in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures and are not presented as alternative measures. These measures, excluding certain items affecting comparability, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

During the twelve months ended March 28, 2015, the Company sold the idle Woodland, California production facility for $4.7 million and the idle Albemarle, North Carolina facility for $0.9 million, and two idle retail locations, resulting in an aggregate net gain of $1.4 million.
