Phoenix, Arizona, UNITED STATES

PHOENIX, Oct. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVCO) today announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended September 28, 2019. On August 2, 2019, the Company completed the acquisition of Destiny Homes, which operates a manufactured and modular housing factory in Moultrie, Georgia. The results from this acquired operation since the acquisition date are included in the current quarter's consolidated financial statements presented herein.

Financial highlights include the following:

  • Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $268.7 million, up 11.3% from $241.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2019. The increase was from improved home sales volume, higher home selling prices and changes in product mix. Net revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2020 was $532.7 million, a 9.2% increase from $487.9 million in the comparable prior year period.
  • Income from operations increased 15.5% to $22.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 compared to $19.4 million in the same quarter last year. During the period, the Company realized higher gross profit margins mainly from increased home selling prices coupled with lower material input costs. Income from operations for the first six months of fiscal 2020 was $47.4 million, a 13.9% increase from $41.6 million in the comparable prior year period.
  • Net income was $20.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to net income of $15.6 million in the same quarter of the prior year, a 34.0% increase. Included in this quarter's results was a $3.4 million net gain on the sale of idle land recorded in Other income, net. For the six months ended September 28, 2019, net income was $42.2 million, up 19.5% from net income of $35.3 million in the prior year period. Diluted net income per share was $2.25 and $4.56 for the three and six months ended September 28, 2019, respectively, compared to $1.67 and $3.80 for the comparable periods last year.

Overall production rates have improved and order backlog has declined to $137 million at the end of the quarter compared to $204 million in the comparable period. This strong backlog level is up slightly from $131 million in the sequential quarter and represents approximately seven weeks of production.
