Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2017 Second Quarter Results

PHOENIX, Nov. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO) today announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended October 1, 2016.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 totaled $188.3 million, down 1.9% from $192.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016. The decrease is mainly from a decline in quarterly home sales of approximately 1%. Net revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2017 was $373.5 million, up 5.6% from $353.6 million for the comparable prior year period, primarily from 7.6% higher sales volume. This period also contains one additional month of Fairmont Homes operations versus the same period last year, as Fairmont Homes was purchased by the Company on May 1, 2015.
  • Income before income taxes was $13.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, a 4.8% increase from $12.5 million income before income taxes in the comparable quarter last year. For the first six months of fiscal 2017, income before income taxes increased 1.9% to $21.5 million compared to income before income taxes of $21.1 million for the comparable period in the prior year. The increase was primarily from improved operating leverage from home sales volume, partially offset for the six month period by high claims volume at the Company's insurance subsidiary generated by multiple unusually severe storms in Texas during the first quarter of this fiscal year.
  • Net income was $9.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017, compared to net income of $8.1 million in the same quarter of the prior year, a 14.8% increase. This increase includes $755,000 of certain research and development tax credits that became realizable by the Company during the quarter. For the six months ended October 1, 2016, net income was $14.8 million, up 9.6% from net income of $13.5 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016.
  • Net income per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $1.04 and $1.03, respectively, compared to net income per share of $0.91 and $0.89, respectively, for the comparable quarter last year. Net income per share for the six months ended October 1, 2016, based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding, was $1.65 and $1.63, respectively, versus basic and diluted net income per share of $1.52 and $1.49, respectively, for the prior six month period.

Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased to report improved profitability this quarter while still operating in a highly competitive housing market. We remain encouraged by the continued housing recovery and our solid backlogs. Interest from manufactured home retailers, developers and community operators for our product offerings remains strong heading into the winter season."

Cavco’s management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, November 9, 2016, 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.
