Phoenix-based RV and manufactured home builder Cavco Industries Inc. announced on Thursday (May 23) after the market closed financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended March 30, 2013.
According to a news release, net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 totaled $108.8 million, up 9.4% from $99.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. Income before income taxes for the fourth quarter improved to $4.2 million from $2.4 million for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter. Net income was $3.0 million for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter compared to $2.9 million, which included a $1.2 million income tax benefit related to an election made for the acquired Palm Harbor insurance group’s assets, as reported in the same quarter one year ago.
Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter was $1.4 million, compared to $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, which included one half of the $1.2 million income tax benefit from last year’s tax election discussed above, consistent with Cavco’s ownership percentage of Palm Harbor.
Net income per share based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the quarter ended March 30, 2013, was $0.20, versus basic and diluted net income per share of $0.24 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
For the fiscal year ended March 30, 2013, net revenue increased 2.1% to $452.3 million from $443.1 million for fiscal year 2012. Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for fiscal year 2013 was $5.0 million compared to $15.2 million last year. Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for fiscal year 2012 included one-half (or approximately $11.0 million) of the bargain purchase gain recognized from the Palm Harbor transaction, which occurred on April 23, 2011. This bargain purchase gain allocation was consistent with Cavco’s ownership percentage of Palm Harbor.
For fiscal year 2013, net income per share based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding was $0.71, versus basic and diluted net income per share of $2.22 and $2.19, respectively, for the prior year period.
Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, chairman, president and CEO, said, “We are pleased to report improved results for the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year. We realized a 15.1% increase in home sales to 2,176, up from 1,890 homes sold in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. On an annual basis, the average sales price per home decreased to approximately $48,594 compared to $51,760 in fiscal year 2012, as demand rose for small size and lower price point homes. However, we sold 6.8% more homes overall in fiscal 2013 versus last year, totaling 8,398 homes compared to 7,860 in fiscal year 2012.”
He continued, “Several new product designs from each of our main housing brands, namely Cavco Homes, Fleetwood Homes, and Palm Harbor Homes, were individually recognized recently by receiving design awards from the Manufactured Housing Institute. We were also acknowledged as Manufacturer of the Year for the fourth year in a row, as voted by our peers in the industry trade association, a recognition that our employees enthusiastically share with our customers and vendors.”
