PHOENIX, Feb. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVCO) today announced financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended January 1, 2022 and provided updates on other business items.

On September 24, 2021, we completed the acquisition of certain assets and liabilities of The Commodore Corporation ("Commodore"), which operates six manufacturing plants and two retail locations. Since the acquisition date, the results of Commodore are included in Cavco's consolidated financial statements.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Record breaking Net revenue and Net income of $432 million and $80 million, respectively, of which Commodore contributed $73 million and $2 million, respectively. Net income was favorably impacted by a $29.9 million net benefit primarily from estimated non-recurring tax credits for the construction of energy efficient homes over an approximately five year period.

  • Gross profit as a percentage of Net revenue increased to 26.7% with factory-built housing gross profit as a percentage of Net revenue at 25.2%, a 110 basis point improvement sequentially from the prior quarter ended October 2, 2021.

  • Earnings per diluted share was $8.57 compared to $2.12 in last year's third quarter. This quarter was favorably impacted by $3.23 from non-recurring energy efficient home tax credits.

  • Factory utilization improved to approximately 80%, consistent with pre-pandemic levels.

  • Backlogs were $1.1 billion at the end of the quarter, consistent with the prior quarter ended October 2, 2021 and up $633 million from a year ago. Commodore contributed $277 million of this year over year growth.

  • Returned nearly $9 million to shareholders through stock repurchases, with $29 million repurchased through the fiscal year to date.

Commenting on the quarter, Bill Boor, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Our record third quarter results reflect strength in manufactured housing demand as well as our ability to increase home production, improving our plant utilization to pre-pandemic levels of approximately 80%. While we still face labor and supply challenges, our production improvement is directly attributable to the innovation of our team members who are completing homes in a more efficient manner."

Mr. Boor continued, "Demand for our products remains strong, with order rates above 2019 levels. Demographics, long-term undersupply, rising home prices and upward interest rate pressure are all intensifying the need for affordable housing. That is why we continue to invest in production capacity, through our previously announced Glendale, Arizona greenfield project and ongoing investment in many of our existing plants."

  • In the factory-built housing segment, the increases in Net revenue were primarily due to higher home selling prices and higher home sales volume. The higher home prices were driven by product price increases and a shift toward more multi-section homes. Home sales volume increased from the addition of Commodore and higher factory capacity utilization.

  • Financial services segment Net revenue increased primarily due to higher volume in home loan sales and more insurance policies in force in the current year compared to the prior year, partially offset by lower interest income earned on the acquired consumer loan portfolios that continue to amortize and lower unrealized gains on marketable equity securities in the insurance subsidiary's portfolio.

  • In the factory-built housing segment, Gross profit for the three and nine months ended January 1, 2022 increased from higher home sales prices, partially offset by higher material costs per unit. Our margins benefited from lumber product price declines that have flowed through cost of goods sold; however, most other material prices have increased significantly. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased in these periods from higher salary and incentive compensation expense on improved earnings and expenses incurred in engaging third-party consultants in relation to pursuing the non-recurring energy efficient home net tax credits. The nine month period also includes transaction deal costs related to the Commodore acquisition and higher net costs related to the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") inquiry.

  • In the financial services segment, Gross profit for the three and nine months ended January 1, 2022, decreased primarily due to higher weather related claims and lower unrealized gains on marketable equity securities compared to the prior year period.

  • Other income, net during the nine months ended January 1, 2022 includes a $3.3 million gain in the second fiscal quarter on the consolidation of a non-marketable equity investment, which went from a 50% ownership to 70%.

  • For the three and nine months ended January 1, 2022, income taxes resulted in a benefit of $20.7 million and $0.9 million, respectively. This is due to $34.4 million of estimated non-recurring net tax credits related to the sale of energy efficient homes between fiscal year 2018 and fiscal third quarter 2022 available under the Internal Revenue Code §45L. This credit was initially established under the Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 and most recently extended in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. The credit expired in its current format as of December 31, 2021. The Company determined eligibility for the program in consultation with third-party qualified experts and recognized the benefit for the five eligible years in the current quarter. In total, after considering the net tax credits and associated expenses, diluted net income per share for the three months ended January 1, 2022 was favorably impacted by $3.23 per share.

Housing Demand and Production Updates

Housing demand remains strong as qualified individuals continue pursuing affordable home-ownership. Home order rates have moderated from the extreme highs we saw the past few quarters, but still remain above pre-COVID rates, which we considered to be strong.

Our backlogs at January 1, 2022 were $1.1 billion, consistent with second fiscal quarter of 2022 and up $633 million, or 134.1%, compared to $472 million at December 26, 2020. The year over year increase includes $277 million attributable to Commodore. Although we continue to experience hiring challenges, higher and largely unpredictable factory employee absenteeism and other inefficiencies from building material supply disruptions, our total average plant capacity utilization rate was approximately 80% during the third fiscal quarter of 2022, back to pre-pandemic levels and improved from approximately 75% during the second fiscal quarter of 2022 and the third fiscal quarter of 2021.

Update on New Park Model Facility in Arizona

We continue to make progress on the new Glendale, Arizona facility that focuses on park model production and is expected to begin operations in mid-calendar year 2022.
