PHOENIX, May 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:CVCO) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended March 29, 2014.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 totaled $131.2 million, up 20.6% from $108.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income was $4.2 million for the fiscal 2014 fourth quarter compared to $3.0 million reported in the same quarter one year ago.

Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for the fiscal 2014 fourth quarter was $4.2 million, compared to $1.4 million reported in the same quarter of the prior year. The prior year amount was net of $1.6 million of net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interest. As previously reported, Cavco purchased the noncontrolling interest during the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 and Cavco now owns 100% of its consolidated subsidiaries; accordingly all of the fiscal 2014 fourth quarter consolidated net income is attributable to Cavco stockholders. Net income per share based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the quarter ended March 29, 2014 was $0.48 and $0.47, respectively, versus basic and diluted net income per share of $0.20 for the quarter ended March 30, 2013.

For the fiscal year ended March 29, 2014, net revenue increased 17.9% to $533.3 million from $452.3 million for fiscal year 2013. Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for fiscal year 2014 was $16.2 million compared to $5.0 million last year. For fiscal year 2014, net income per share based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding was $1.97 and $1.94, respectively, versus basic and diluted net income per share of $0.71 for the prior year period.

Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "The execution of our strategic plans during the past five years positioned Cavco to benefit from the quite modest improvement the manufactured home industry experienced this past year. Fiscal 2014's net income attributable to common shareholders was also positively influenced by this year's buyout of all noncontrolling interests related to past acquisitions. We are pleased to report that our improved annual financial results were from increased earnings in both our factory-built housing and financial services segments as homes sold increased 13.6% from the prior year."

Mr. Stegmayer continued, "We were gratified to finish our fiscal year by being named the 2014 Manufacturer of the Year by the Manufactured Housing Institute, as voted by our peers in the factory-built home industry's national trade organization. This is the fifth consecutive year that we have been so honored. We appreciate the recognition the award brings to our company as we share this distinction with our valued employees, customers and vendors."

Cavco's management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, May 23, 2014, at 12:00 NOON (Eastern Daylight 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.
