Skyline Champion Announces Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2023 Results

QuoteMarksLeftSideFebruary 06, 2023 04:30 PM Eastern Standard Time

TROY, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Skyline Champion Corporation (NYSE: SKY) (“Skyline Champion”) today announced financial results for its third quarter ended December 31, 2022 (“fiscal 2023”).

Third Quarter Fiscal 2023 Highlights (compared to Third Quarter Fiscal 2022)

  • Net sales increased 8.9% to $582.3 million
  • U.S. homes sold decreased 1.4% to 5,749
  • Total backlog decreased 34.6% to $532 million from the sequential second quarter
  • Average selling price (“ASP”) per U.S. home sold increased 13.5% to $94,200
  • Gross profit margin expanded by 50 basis points to 29.9%
  • Net income increased by 22.5% to $82.8 million
  • Earnings per share (“EPS”) increased 22.0% to $1.44
  • EBITDA increased 12.8% to $109.1 million
  • EBITDA margin expanded by 60 basis points to 18.7%
  • Net cash generated by operating activities of $85.5 million during the quarter

“We delivered solid sales and earnings growth in the third quarter,” said Mark Yost, Skyline Champion’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “While backlogs continue to trend toward historical levels due to retailer destocking, we saw positive demand in key channels and select markets during the quarter. The momentum in our business continues to be driven by our ability to increase engagement with a growing base of home buyers and highlights our unique offering of value-oriented home solutions. We are confident that Skyline Champion can continue to perform due to our attractive price points, differentiated product offering, and enhanced production capabilities.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2023 Results

Net sales for the third quarter fiscal 2023 increased 8.9% to $582.3 million compared to the prior-year period. The number of U.S. homes sold in the third quarter fiscal 2023 decreased 1.4% to 5,749. Volume levels during the quarter were impacted by reduced production schedules and backlogs normalizing to meet current seasonal demand. The ASP per U.S. home sold increased 13.5% to $94,200 due to the mix of units sold and price increases to offset cost inflation. The number of Canadian factory-built homes sold in the quarter decreased to 273 homes compared to 336 homes in the prior-year period due to a shift in product mix to larger homes and reduced demand in certain markets. Total backlog for Skyline Champion was $532 million as of December 31, 2022, compared to $814 million as of October 1, 2022. Backlogs continued to decrease to more normal levels, following historical highs, due to moderating order rates as retailers continued to destock existing inventory.

Gross profit increased by 10.7% to $174.1 million in the third quarter fiscal 2023 compared to the prior-year period. Gross profit margin was 29.9% of net sales, a 50-basis point expansion compared to 29.4% in the third quarter fiscal 2022. Gross profit margin improvement is being driven by higher pricing and the increase in retail sales as a percentage of total U.S. sales, resulting from our expansion of retail operations. These increases were partially offset by lower volume and higher input costs.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the third quarter fiscal 2023 increased to $71.8 million from $65.8 million in the same period last year. SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 12.3%, consistent with prior year levels. The higher SG&A expense during the quarter was due to additional investments in new capacity and acquisitions as well as investments made to enhance our online customer buying experience partially offset by lower variable compensation expenses.

Net income increased by 22.5% to $82.8 million for the third quarter fiscal 2023 compared to the prior-year period. The increase in net income was driven by the increase in sales and profitability as well as net interest income versus expense last year.

EBITDA for the third quarter fiscal 2023 increased by 12.8% to $109.1 million compared to the third quarter fiscal 2022 driven by an increase in net sales and improved profitability. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 60 basis points to 18.7% due to higher sales and profitability.

As of December 31, 2022, Skyline Champion had $712.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, an increase of $277.0 million as compared to prior fiscal year end.

Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) throughout this press release, Skyline Champion has provided non-GAAP financial measures, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which present operating results on a basis adjusted for certain items. Skyline Champion uses these non-GAAP financial measures for business planning purposes and in measuring its performance relative to that of its competitors. Skyline Champion believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful financial metrics to assess its operating performance from period-to-period by excluding certain items that Skyline Champion believes are not representative of its core business. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace, and should not be considered superior to, the presentation of Skyline Champion’s financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Skyline Champion defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss plus, (a) the provision for income taxes, (b) interest income or expense, net, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) gain or loss from discontinued operations, (e) restructuring charges and impairment of assets, (f) other non-operating income and costs, including those for the acquisition and integration or disposition of businesses. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of earnings calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss, net sales, operating income or earnings per share prepared on a U.S. GAAP basis. Adjusted EBITDA does not purport to represent cash flow provided by, or used in, operating activities as defined by U.S. GAAP. Skyline Champion believes that Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors to evaluate its performance and that of its competitors. However, Skyline Champion’s use of Adjusted EBITDA may vary from that of others in its industry. Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled from the respective measure under U.S. GAAP in the tables below. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales reported in the statement of operations.

Part II Additional Information with More MHVille Expert MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

Let’s tee this up with two questions. Did anyone at Skyline Champion read Freddie Mac’s research on:

  • “Identifying the Opportunities to Expand Manufactured Housing” by Astou Aw, Lariece Brown, Ashley Yea? (Note: this has no obvious publication date, but it was published in 2022 and prior to the Urban Institute’s “The Role of Manufactured Housing in Increasing the Supply of Affordable Housing” by Karan Kaul Daniel Pang published in July 2022, which referenced it.
  • “Majority Of Consumers Would Consider Buying A Manufactured Home” published on June 29, 2022?

They obviously should have. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine a scenario where they would not have read both reports, and they would have read what MHLivingNews and/or MHProNews reported on those research briefs. Then, note from the Skyline Champion May 2022 investor relations ‘pitch deck’ (power point presentation) the following page.

Hold those thoughts in mind.

FreddieMacResearchMajorityofConsumersWouldConsiderBuyingAManufacturedHomeScreenshot 2023-02-09 092728

The Freddie Mac YouTube video above was uploaded on May 24, 2022.
On this date and time (about 9:30 AM ET) it only has 352 views.

Next. Skyline’s own statement indicates that they are ramping up vertically integrated sales, though they phrased that somewhat differently in the press release above.  From their May 2022 Investor Relations (IR) ‘pitch deck’ (power point presentation or PDF) is the following page.

More on retailers and vertical integration shortly.

Further note that Skyline admits that there are “international” “risks,” which apparently goes to the concerns raised in the report linked below. That is in keeping with the alert that MHProNews alerted readers to in the report linked below.


Manufactured Housing Industry Supply Chains in China, Asia at Risk-U.S., Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Philippines Prep for Conflict with Communist North Korea and China–War Could be ‘Soon’

When Skyline Champion mentions risks caused by the “possible unavailability of additional capital when needed,” one should consider the impact of MHI’s failure to secure the full and proper implementation of DTS.  Neither Skyline Champion, nor MHI, can have it both ways. It should be apparent that more financing and more competitive rates is a plus for more manufactured housing sales, their press release above says as much in their disclosures. But that also means that when Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fail to properly support their Congressionally mandated Duty to Serve Manufactured Housing, they are letting the home buying public, taxpayers, independent retail channels, and their stock shareholders/investors all down.


This quote graphic of the comment shown by Mark Yost, President and CEO of Skyline Champion (SKY) was uploaded by MHProNews on June 3, 2020. At the time, MHI or their surrogates claimed that progress was being made on DTS. Clearly, it was not. More than 2½ years later, there is still no progress.
This quote by William C. “Bill’ Boor was uploaded on MHProNews on February 18, 2020. So, over 3 years later, there is still no progress on DTS. There is an admission by MHI in writing that CrossMods (ChoiceHome at Freddie Mac and MH Advantage at Fannie Mae) is being eschewed by developers. only single or low double digit annual sales per year have occurred, per sources deemed reliable. Yet, MHI and their dominating members hailed Crossmods as a breakthrough for the industry. They pointed to ‘research’ that claimed it would be several times more accepted than manufactured homes. That has not been proven out in the marketplace. That begs an array of questions about the veracity and reliability of MHI ‘research.’ but since Boor and Yost are on the MHI board of directors, why haven’t they fixed this issue? Recall that DTS was made law as part of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008). Approaching a dozen years later, there is still negligible support for chattel lending, which is depending on the source is about 75 (+/-) percent of most manufactured housing loans. Why do key MHI members, seemingly in unison, say similar things that are dubious or false?

An arguably coy reference to the looming Department of Energy (DOE) rule implementation of new manufactured housing industry energy standards is another example of ‘they can’t have it both ways’ in evidence in this report. In the above release, they said: “the extensive regulation affecting the production and sale of factory-built housing and the effects of possible changes in laws with which we must comply…” are among their risk factors. But Skyline Champion, which has an MHI board seat (as noted at the top of this report), has apparently not pressed MHI to take legal action, which the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) has recommended. Once more, that is a looming harm (“risk”) to marginal homebuyers, taxpayers, independent retailers, and their shareholders/investors.

Retail and the Shift in MHVille Distribution Channel Volume

When SKY’s forward-looking statements, which normally may cause some investors eyes to glaze over, include a notice that: “changes to relationships with, independent retailers” is on their radar of “risks,” that could be a ‘moat’ move that Skyline Champion is participating in alongside Cavco Industries and Berkshire Hathaway owned Clayton Homes.

When they indicate an expansion of their own vertically-integrated retail channel, that could be a ‘which came first?’ issue, but facts would be available to the firm that could clear the question up. Did they begin to expand retail because of ‘destocking,’ or did expansion of their retail centers help fuel “destocking” by independents near their corporate owned retail stores?

A reasonable takeaway from the facts and statements shown is this. There are indications that the SKY management at some levels may be setting up at least some of their own independents for a fall. When it comes to the so-called Big Three (Big 3) at MHI of Clayton Homes, Skyline Champion and Cavco Industries, it has arguably not been a given that the producer/suppliers are on the side of independents for much of the 21st century. Consider the evidence-based 3rd party blasts shown herein, including those immediately below.

Official HUD Manufactured Housing Production Facts for Dec 2022 plus 2022 Year End Totals Explored by Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR)-“Millions” Needed – Analysis

See his context and the full ‘debate’ context in the report, linked here.

Many in MHVille have stopped talking much about COVID19. But it is certainly near the top of the list of factors that have impacted the economy, American (and global) politics, the housing market, and the manufactured housing industry.


When their press release mentions legal issues, think about not only existing ones, but potential ones.


Call for Congressional Oversight Hearings of Manufactured Home Industry Regulators Highlighted by Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR); plus MHVille Markets Update


In their May 2022 Investor presentation, the firm said: “Skyline Champion Corporation is rethinking and transforming construction across the United States and Western Canada. We are making it possible for people to have a home that is built better, built faster and is more attainable today. We achieve this by providing off site solutions that are more innovative, affordable, and sustainable housing solutions for our customers and the end consumer.” The “end customer” in that narrative is the retail homebuyer. But Skyline Champion’s other “customers” are independent retailers, communities, builder-developers, and their own vertically integrated retailers. Their lingo of “off site built” homes is a page out of the Clayton Homes backed MHI playbook. Given the concerns noted herein, some of those remarks may well be paltering.


“Open and transparent communication with all our stakeholders –shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, and communities we serve. Social responsibility to homebuyers, customers, employees and the communities in which they live and work.”

But the case can be made that MHI apparently isn’t transparent. As a board member of MHI, they have an ability to do something about that, don’t they? At a minimum, when antitrust, improper regulator engagement or other legal concerns come to the forefront, as MHARR and others have routinely pressed, Skyline Champion has its own set of responsibilities. So do their officers, members of management, and staff.


Speaking of staff, there is word that Terry Decio, part of the family tree from the Skyline portion of the organization, will be retiring.

Back to their May 2022 investor pitchbook, when Skyline Champion’s management say that “60 percent of the U.S. population cannot afford a traditional home,” that is a remark that cuts more than one way. In making that statement, or others that could be referenced, they also have fiduciary and other responsibilities.  If they are failing to live up to those remarks, there is arguably exposure.

Despite the fact that Skyline Champion’s stock lost value in 2022, per the insights noted below, some analysts think the company’s stock is poised for growth.

That said, their forward-looking statement “risks” and the factors noted herein are among the reasons that detail-oriented professionals should be cautious when it comes to this firm’s leadership. This isn’t a question of the product; it is a question of the policies and schemes of the leaders behind the products.




As but one more example of concern, on page 19 of their IR pitch deck, SKY said under “FINANCING AND REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT” that “EASING REGULATION AN ADDITIONAL TAILWIND” and “IMPROVING FINANCING ENVIRONMENT AS LENDERS RETURN TO MARKET.” While it may be true that they take no responsibility (their disclaimers) for what happens the instant after they publish such remarks, the case could be made that those statements were paltering at best, or deceptive a worst, before they were made. MHProNews has published extensively on the MHI CrossMod® scheme. For Skyline Champion to even hint that there was improvement there is blatantly misleading. MHI itself has admitted that developers are moving away from CrossMods.

MHProNews plans on providing “transparent” Skyline Champion management with the opportunity to respond to the questions and concerns raised in this report. Among the noteworthy issues? According to MHI’s August 2022 manufactured housing industry snapshot, “49% of new manufactured homes are placed on private property and 51% are placed in manufactured home communities.” In May, 2022, Skyline Champion said that 33 percent of their production was going into manufactured home communities. In their recent press release, Skyline Champion asserts that their retail channel is ‘destocking.’ When did Skyline Champion begin to shift more of their production to communities? To their own retail centers? These are questions of substance for manufactured housing independents as well as for investors and regulators.MHProNews Note 1: depending on your browser or device, many images in this report can be clicked to expand. or example, in some browsers/devices you click the image and select ‘open in a new window.’ After clicking that selection, you click the image in the open window to expand the image to a larger size.

There are numbers of examples where Skyline Champion, along with other key MHI members, have arguably been failing in their responsibilities to their independent retailers and to their shareholders.

MHProNews plans to do another report in the near term that unpacks the firm’s latest management discussion of quarterly results. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, dig into the linked and related reports to learn more about the nuances behind the numbers, observations, and remarks. Skyline’s leaders may be relying too much on “Caveat emptor.” Stay informed to the pluses, minuses, and sobering realities about the manufactured housing industry to the one and only industry professional trade media in MHVille that explores the apparent disconnects between corporate, nonprofit, or association claims and realities. ##
