GlobeNews reports Cavco Industries, Inc.’s financials for the fiscal third-quarter 2013 reveal net sales remained the same as for same quarter 2012–$114.6 million. Net income was $3 million for both. The first nine months of FY 2013, which ended Dec. 29, 2012 saw sales drop by $.01 million from the same period last year to $343.5 million. Net income for the first nine months of FY 2013 attributable to Cavco stockholders was $3.6 million versus $13.3 million for last year, which includes $11 million as the result of acquiring Palm Harbor in 2011. Speaking of Q3, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer (and former MHI Chairman) says, “We are pleased with the continued contributions and progress of our acquired businesses. However, increasing homebuilding component and raw material costs, continued competitive pricing pressures, market demand for smaller and lower price-point homes and a higher income tax provision adversely affected our earnings during the quarter. The average sales price per home was approximately $50,100 during the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared to $53,200 during the third quarter last year, a 5.8% decrease. On a positive note, home sales increased this quarter to 2,065 homes, 4.7% higher than 1,972 homes sold during the same quarter last year.” As MHProNews understands, Cavco is the second largest producer of manufactured homes in the nation.
