903 Days ago

PHOENIX, July 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVCO) today announced financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended June 29, 2019.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $264.0 million, up 7.1% from $246.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. The increase was primarily from higher home selling prices and changes in product mix.

  • Income before income taxes increased 13.7% to $27.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 compared to $24.1 million in the same quarter last year. During the period, the Company experienced higher gross profit margins from increased home selling prices coupled with lower material input costs.

  • Income tax expense was $6.1 million, an effective tax rate of 22.2%, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 compared to $4.4 million and an effective tax rate of 18.4% in the same quarter of the prior year. The lower effective tax rate in the prior year primarily relates to greater tax benefits from stock option exercises, as illustrated below.

  • Net income increased 8.1% to $21.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, from $19.7 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Diluted net income per share was $2.31 for the three months ended June 29, 2019, compared to $2.12 for the comparable period last year.

During each period presented, ancillary items had the following impact on the results of operations (in millions):

Commenting on the quarter, Bill Boor, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Both our factory-built housing and financial services businesses have delivered another quarter of strong and growing financial results. From an industry perspective, the homebuying ability of our customers continues to be supported by positive economic drivers, including consumer confidence, growth in jobs and wages, low unemployment and ongoing efforts to advance financing options. Given this positive macroeconomic backdrop, we are optimistic about the demand dynamics for affordable housing and our ability to compete effectively in this market. As we have discussed previously, there are isolated geographic areas, particularly the South Central and South Eastern United States, experiencing some softness in factory orders. That said, our overall backlog is healthy at seven weeks of production."

Mr. Boor continued, "Our gross margins have remained strong this quarter. The Company maintained effective home pricing strategies while continuing to benefit from generally lower commodity prices. Our home sales order backlog has stabilized at $131 million at the end of the quarter compared to $129 million at the end of last quarter. We believe we are in a solid position to produce strong results throughout fiscal year 2020."

Cavco’s management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, July 30, 2019, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Time). Interested parties can access a live webcast of the conference call on the Internet at https://investor.cavco.com.
