Cavco Industries, Part 1, Market Spotlight
The charts, graphics and illustrations below are not found in the Seeking Alpha release and transcript. Nor was Legal & General mentioned in the transcript provided, which is an observation that should not be misconstrued.
Part One of the review of the Cavco data and reporting will focus on what’s below, but the planned part two and/or part three will have information from an informed source with ties to Cavco that are unlikely to be found anywhere else.
Let’s begin the review of the meat of the Cavco transcript, per Seeking Alpha’s release.
Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO)
Q2 2018 Earnings Conference Call
November 08, 2017 01:00 PM ET
Joe Stegmayer – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Dan Urness – Chief Financial Officer
Mark Fusler – Director of Finance Reporting
Pete Lucas – CJS Securities
Brian Hollenden – Sidoti
“Thank you, Latif. And welcome everyone to the Second Quarter Conference Call. As usual, Dan Urness, our Chief Financial Officer is with me, and Mark Fusler, our Director of Finance Reporting.”
Stegmayer introduced Urness who handled many of the investors conference call details.
Urness gave the typical disclosures regarding questions and statements that:
“may not be historical in nature and therefore are considered forward-looking. All statements in comments today are made within the context of safe harbor rules. All forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control. Our actual results or performance may differ materially from anticipated results or performance.”
“Cavco disclaims any obligation to update or — update any forward-looking statements made on this call, and investors should not place any reliance on them,” Urness said per Seeking Alpha’s transcript.
Additionally Urness said:
“For our quarterly report on the financials, net revenue for the second fiscal quarter was $201 million up 6.5% from $188 million during the second quarter of fiscal year 2017.
Breaking this increase down by business segment factory-built housing net revenue increased $11.9 million from a larger proportion of higher priced homes sold and improved home sales volume including incremental sales from our new Lexington Homes factory in Mississippi.
Financial services segment net revenue increased from more insurance policies in force and higher home loan sales volume compared to the prior year quarter.
This revenue increase was partially offset by $1.4 million of required payments to reinstate catastrophic reinsurance policies for the insurance subsidiary causing a direct adverse impact to the quarterly earnings.
Consolidated gross profit in the second fiscal quarter as a percentage of net revenue was 17.2% down from 20.8%
in the same period last year. As described in our earnings release severe hurricane activity this quarter adversely impacted consolidated financial results.
The financial services segment loss was caused by high home owners’ insurance claim volume in Texas, although the Company’s losses on these claims were limited to $1.5 million through its reinsurance contracts.
In the factory-built housing segment the hurricanes caused substantial new home inventory damage at certain company owned retail stores, as well as a limited number of lost production days and delays of home sales in Texas and Florida.
Selling, general and administrative expenses in the fiscal 2018 second quarter as a percentage of net revenue was 13% compared to 13.5% during the same quarter last year.
The improvement was related to fixed cost efficiencies gained from higher net revenue levels.
The effective income tax rate for the quarter was 27.3% compared to 28.7% in the same quarter the prior year.
The current quarter contains a benefit related to the required implementation of new accounting standards requiring the company to record tax benefits from stock option exercises as an income tax expense reduction, whereas these benefits were previously recognized in equity.”
