Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2017 First Quarter Results

PHOENIX, Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO) today announced financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended July 2, 2016.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 totaled $185.1 million, up 14.5% from $161.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016. The increase was primarily from 17.0% higher sales volume, as the Company sold 3,395 homes this quarter compared to 2,902 homes during last year's first fiscal quarter. The current quarter contains one additional month of Fairmont Homes operations versus the same quarter last year, as Fairmont Homes was purchased by the Company on May 1, 2015.
  • Income before income taxes was $8.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, a 2.3% decrease from $8.6 million income before income taxes in the comparable quarter last year. Income before income taxes in the factory-built housing segment increased $2.7 million over the same period last year. The increase was primarily from improved operating leverage from higher home sales during the quarter. Income before income taxes in the financial services segment, comprised of the mortgage and insurance subsidiaries, decreased $2.9 million from the same period last year. The net decline was directly caused by high claims volume at the Company's insurance subsidiary generated by multiple unusually severe storms in Texas. While claims activity typically spikes in April and May, a prime season for storm activity in the area, the severity and occurrence of hail and wind storms and the damage to insured homes were considerably greater this year as compared to last year. Losses from these events were somewhat mitigated by reinsurance contracts.
  • Net income was $5.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, consistent with net income of $5.4 million in the same quarter of the prior year.
  • Net income per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $0.61 and $0.60, respectively, consistent with net income per share of $0.61 and $0.60, respectively, for the comparable quarter last year.

Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Overall housing demand continued to improve during the quarter, as reflected in the higher sales volume we are pleased to report. Although significant insurance claims activity from unpredictably extreme weather adversely impacted our financial services segment's results this quarter, the long-term prospects for this business remain positive. We look forward to the improved market opportunities available to our businesses and expect to continue to benefit from them during the fiscal year."

Cavco’s management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, August 10, 2016, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Time).
