Cavco Industries Reports Fiscal 2019 First Quarter Results

1106 Days ago

PHOENIX, Aug. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: CVCO) today announced financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 totaled $246.4 million, up 19.1% from $206.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. The increase was primarily from improved home sales volume and higher home selling prices from input cost inflation and modestly larger home sizes. Current quarter net revenue also includes $6.5 million from this quarter's required implementation of accounting standards whereby subcontracted pass-through services, such as the preparation of a home site or other home enhancements, are now recognized on a gross basis rather than net of associated costs.

  • Income before income taxes was $24.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, a 53.5% increase from $15.7 million in the comparable quarter last year. As part of this increase, $1.5 million in unrealized gains on corporate investments from this quarter's implementation of new accounting standards was recorded in other income, net. Unrealized gains and losses are now required to be reported on the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income instead of recording these amounts in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

  • Income tax expense was $4.4 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 18.4% for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 compared to $3.9 million and an effective tax rate of 24.9% in the same quarter of the prior year. The current fiscal quarter was benefited by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act"), which was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Act reduced the federal corporate tax rate to 21% for our fiscal year ending March 30, 2019. In addition, the current quarter includes a deduction of $1.2 million related to excess tax benefits from exercises of stock options, compared to $1.4 million deducted in the prior year period.

  • Net income was $19.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, compared to net income of $11.8 million in the same quarter of the prior year, a 66.9% increase. Diluted net income per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $2.12 compared to diluted net income per share of $1.28 for the comparable quarter last year.

Commenting on the quarter, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Cavco's home order rates continue to benefit from the improving housing market and economy. At the end of the first fiscal quarter, Cavco’s sales order backlog was $196 million compared to $137 million at the end of the same quarter last year. The tight labor market remains a challenge; accordingly we continue to focus our efforts on talent recruiting, training and retention programs, along with increasing factory production rates by investing in production capacity and efficiency initiatives."

Cavco’s management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, August 7, 2018, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Time). Interested parties can access a live webcast of the conference call on the Internet at www.cavco.com under the Investor Relations link. An archive of the webcast and presentation will be available for 90 days at www.cavco.com under the Investor Relations link.
