Governor Touts Cavco Industries Expansion Plans, but Simply Wall Street Asks – Is Cavco (CVCO) Risky Due to Debt, Market Volatility? Facts and Analysis; plus MHVille Market Updates

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s (D) office has provided the following media release to MHProNews about the expansion plans announced by Cavco Industries (CVCO) in their state. The expansion is at the previously independently owned facilities of The Commodore Corporation (TCC), which were acquired by Cavco last year. It is against the backdrop of the expansion announced by Wolf and Cavco that the Simply Wall Street report is analyzed by MHProNews. The broader Daily Business News on MHProNews market report will follow that segment of today’s featured reports.


Governor Tom Wolf – Cavco Selects Pennsylvania to Expand Manufacturing Operations, Will Create 55 New Jobs

March 28, 2022

Governor Tom Wolf announced today that Cavco Industries Inc., one of the nation’s largest manufactured home builders, has chosen to expand its national manufacturing operations in Pennsylvania, creating 55 new jobs and retaining 607 total existing positions over the next three years. Cavco recently purchased The Commodore Corporation, now known as Commodore Homes LLC, which has three home production facilities in Clarion and Butler counties.

“Having a nationally recognized company like Cavco choose to expand their operations in Pennsylvania sends a very clear message to other businesses about the strength of our manufacturing sector,” said Gov. Wolf. “We are pleased to support this expansion project that will create and retain a total of 662 jobs and provide a significant boost to the local economies.”

Cavco and Commodore Homes LLC will continue to invest and expand operations at all three facilities – 4 Pennwest Way, Emlenton (Butler County) and 20898 & 20510 Paint Boulevard, Shippenville (both in Clarion County). The company’s investment in the expansion project will include construction, renovation, equipment and infrastructure costs.

“Cavco is excited about the combination of Commodore and Cavco,” said Steve Like, Senior Vice President for Business Development at Cavco. “This acquisition allows Cavco to expand its business into the northeastern U.S. housing markets we have not previously served. Commodore’s strong reputation for quality and service, combined with the experienced and talented workforce at its Pennsylvania manufacturing facilities provide the basis for potential future growth.”

The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for a $220,000 Pennsylvania First grant and a $98,000 workforce development grant to help train workers. Cavco has committed to investing more than $8 million into the project.

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania. Gov. Wolf has invested more than $16.2 billion over the past seven years to support 409 completed projects, create more than 45,500 new jobs, and retain more than 140,300 jobs for Pennsylvanians.

Cavco Industries Inc. is one of the nation’s largest national manufactured home builders and specializes in offering consumers quality, affordable homes that can meet the needs of changing lifestyles.

MHProNews has noted for some time that manufactured housing is capable of substantial growth, based upon current market dynamics, capital access, existing laws, and long-term housing needs.

In a sense, to those in the know, the question posed by Simply Wall Street’s headline is on its face absurd.

But ironically, perhaps the greatest risk that Cavco faces is not from debt or market volatility. But rather, the risk that Cavco – and arguably several fellow Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) brands face – are legal and regulatory threats. More on that following some key statements and facts provided by Simply Wall Street. It should in fairness be noted that the following are free insights from that financial services information platform, which routinely tease readers into buying a membership or subscription or their paid insights.


Is Cavco Industries (NASDAQ:CVCO) A Risky Investment?

By Simply Wall St

Published March 29, 2022

Some say volatility, rather than debt, is the best way to think about risk as an investor, but Warren Buffett famously said that ‘Volatility is far from synonymous with risk.’ So it seems the smart money knows that debt – which is usually involved in bankruptcies – is a very important factor, when you assess how risky a company is. As with many other companies Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CVCO) makes use of debt. But the real question is whether this debt is making the company risky.

What Risk Does Debt Bring?

Debt is a tool to help businesses grow, but if a business is incapable of paying off its lenders, then it exists at their mercy. Part and parcel of capitalism is the process of ‘creative destruction’ where failed businesses are mercilessly liquidated by their bankers. However, a more frequent (but still costly) occurrence is where a company must issue shares at bargain-basement prices, permanently diluting shareholders, just to shore up its balance sheet. Of course, debt can be an important tool in businesses, particularly capital heavy businesses. When we think about a company’s use of debt, we first look at cash and debt together.

What Is Cavco Industries’ Net Debt?

As you can see below, Cavco Industries had US$5.50m of debt at January 2022, down from US$12.7m a year prior. However, it does have US$288.4m in cash offsetting this, leading to net cash of US$282.9m.

How Strong Is Cavco Industries’ Balance Sheet?

We can see from the most recent balance sheet that Cavco Industries had liabilities of US$272.8m falling due within a year, and liabilities of US$32.1m due beyond that. Offsetting this, it had US$288.4m in cash and US$64.5m in receivables that were due within 12 months. So it actually has US$48.1m more liquid assets than total liabilities.

This short term liquidity is a sign that Cavco Industries could probably pay off its debt with ease, as its balance sheet is far from stretched. Succinctly put, Cavco Industries boasts net cash, so it’s fair to say it does not have a heavy debt load!

Even more impressive was the fact that Cavco Industries grew its EBIT by 111% over twelve months. That boost will make it even easier to pay down debt going forward. When analysing debt levels, the balance sheet is the obvious place to start. But ultimately the future profitability of the business will decide if Cavco Industries can strengthen its balance sheet over time. So if you want to see what the professionals think, you might find this free report on analyst profit forecasts to be interesting.

Finally, while the tax-man may adore accounting profits, lenders only accept cold hard cash. Cavco Industries may have net cash on the balance sheet, but it is still interesting to look at how well the business converts its earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) to free cash flow, because that will influence both its need for, and its capacity to manage debt. Over the last three years, Cavco Industries recorded free cash flow worth a fulsome 93% of its EBIT, which is stronger than we’d usually expect. That puts it in a very strong position to pay down debt.

Summing up

While we empathize with investors who find debt concerning, you should keep in mind that Cavco Industries has net cash of US$282.9m, as well as more liquid assets than liabilities. The cherry on top was that in converted 93% of that EBIT to free cash flow, bringing in US$120m. So we don’t think Cavco Industries’s use of debt is risky. The balance sheet is clearly the area to focus on when you are analysing debt. However, not all investment risk resides within the balance sheet – far from it. To that end, you should be aware of the 1 warning sign we’ve spotted with Cavco Industries. ” ##

When clicking on that “warning sign”, it takes readers to this page which has the following quotes.

No risks detected for CVCO from our risk checks. ##

So, whoever ‘edits’ Simply Wall Street’s content apparently missed the disconnect between the teaser for the page that stated the above and more. But to say that there are ‘no risks detected’ for Cavco is absurd, given the SEC litigation and what might flow in its wake from shareholders, consumers, other public officials, etc.

The report below aligns with the Gov. Wolf announcement of organic expansion plans.

The notion that a top official of a publicly traded firm says during an earnings call that they are turning away business ought to be a red flag for thinking people. Yet Cavco’s Bill Boor has said just that without apparent shame.


Boor’s comments and what follows from the SEC and related are arguably tied to growth efforts connected to mergers and acquisitions (M&A), a.k.a. consolidation. Why hasn’t Cavco’s management been more pragmatically focused on organic growth, as Legacy Housing – for instance – has been? But instead of organic growth, Cavco has pressed industry consolidation, as have some other MHI dominating brands.





The revelations from the SEC pleadings, see the report above, read like elements from a fictional novel or movie script. The risk isn’t from debt or market swings, but rather from the apparent thinking and behavior that leads a company’s corporate behavior in stunningly aberrant ways. Former MHI and former Cavco chair Joe Stegmayer has already cut a deal with the SEC, per their statements. Stegmayer stepped down from Cavco’s leadership, but never stepped down from his role at MHI. It is too odd to make such facts up.

Above the headlines in this Yahoo screen grab on 3.29.2022 are two seemingly contradictory statements. On the left, it says that Cavco is deemed undervalued. On the right, the performance outlook says that short, medium, and long-term prospects for Cavco are all pointing down. A look at the one year and 5-year stock pricing graphics reveal significantly volatile stock price behavior, despite the ongoing need for more affordable housing. MHProNews Note: depending on your browser or device, many images in this report can be clicked to expand. Click the image and follow the prompts. To return to this page, use your back key, escape or follow the prompts.

Per Yahoo’s analysis in the graphic above, Cavco has short, medium, and long-term downward pressures. Yet, they say that CVCO is undervalued? Objectively, it need not be so convoluted or contradictory. What appears to be missing is the will among Cavco’s executives to press for the enforcement of existing laws that would open the door to potentially historic level of organic growth by Cavco and other firms too. Perhaps Cavco’s leadership should come clean with their shareholders and public officials such as the SEC in some deal that reveals the scandals and apparent backroom deals that have been occurring in manufactured housing. Look at the SEC pleadings to see how some of those backroom deals apparently have operated.

Bill Boor is correct in saying that the industry has an opportunity to ‘catch up’ – or even pass – conventional housing builders. But that opportunity existed 2 decades ago too. That means, that until the root issues are addressed, authentic progress will not be obtained. It also means that when Boor makes this observation, he is apparently and ironically pointing at the failures of his firm to tap into those robust growth opportunities. That has implications for investors and arguably spells risks for the company.
