PHOENIX, Feb. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVCO) ("we," "our," the "Company" or "Cavco") today announced financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2022 and provided updates on other business items.

Commenting on the quarter, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Boor said, "Our team continues to deliver outstanding performance despite rising interest rates, high inflation and uncertainty in the general economy. The market has clearly shifted over the past few quarters, but our manufacturing and retail operators are doing what they do best — staying nimble, keeping costs as variable as possible to tightly manage margins and maintaining strong teams ready for the inevitable return to an under-supplied market."

He continued, "Our balance sheet remains strong with over $280 million in cash after the acquisition of Solitaire Homes, which closed subsequent to quarter end on January 3rd. We remain focused on providing quality affordable homes, and we are well positioned to continue growing and helping more families achieve the dream of home ownership."

  • In the factory-built housing segment, the increase in Net revenue for both the three and nine months was due to higher home sales volume and higher home selling prices.

  • Financial services segment Net revenue increased for the three months from more insurance policies in force in the current period. For the nine months, Net revenue decreased modestly related to the market performance of the equity securities in the insurance subsidiary's portfolio during the current period and lower interest income earned on the acquired consumer loan portfolios that continue to amortize as expected. These items were partially offset by more insurance policies in force in the current year compared to the prior year.

  • In the factory-built housing segment, the gross profit percentage and total Gross profit for both the three and nine months increased from higher home sales prices.

  • In the financial services segment, Gross profit and Income from operations for the three and nine months were negatively affected by higher insurance claims from Arizona and North Texas weather related events compared to the same period last year.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months decreased as the prior year quarter included higher contractor fees related to the claiming of the energy efficient home credits. This was partially offset by higher incentive compensation on improved earnings. For the nine months, Selling, general and administrative expenses increased from higher compensation on improved earnings and higher legal and professional fees.

  • 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, due to $34.4 million of net tax credits related to the construction and sale of energy efficient homes in the calendar years 2018 through 2021. The current year periods include $2.4 million and $5.1 million, respectively, for homes sold during calendar year 2022 as the program was extended in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021.

Housing Demand and Production Updates

Our backlog at December 31, 2022 was $427 million compared to $651 million last quarter, a decrease of $224 million or 34%. This was largely due to lower home order rates net of cancellations. Order rates are down from the extreme highs we saw during the summer of 2020 to the summer of 2021. For the third fiscal quarter of 2023, our capacity utilization was approximately 65% over all available production days, but was approximately 80% excluding market and weather driven downtime.

Acquisition of Solitaire Homes

As announced on January 3, 2023, we completed the acquisition of the business of Solitaire Homes, including its four manufacturing facilities, twenty-two retail locations and its dedicated transportation operations. The addition of Solitaire Homes strengthens our position in the Southwest, with high quality products that complement our existing home offerings. The purchase price totaled $93 million, before certain customary adjustments, and was funded with cash on hand.
