PHOENIX, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavco Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: CVCO) today announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended September 29, 2018.
Financial highlights include the following:
Commenting on the quarter, Daniel Urness, President and Acting Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased to report positive financial results for the quarter. Improvements in economic measures including increased consumer confidence, low unemployment and growth in jobs and wages have continued to support the homebuying ability of our customers. We are working to further increase manufactured home production volume through investments in homebuilding capabilities, processes, labor recruitment and employee retention efforts. Production staff training and quality assurance are also significant areas of focus given our diverse home product offerings and reputation for high standards of quality. Further, we believe that rising site-built housing prices, residential rent and interest rates make our high value, precision built homes increasingly sought after as an attractive affordable housing solution."
Mr. Urness also noted, "We were saddened by the harm inflicted by Hurricanes Florence and Michael in the Southeastern United States. Our operations were fortunately outside of the paths of the storms. We stand ready to meet the need for new homes that may result as the impacted areas rebuild. Additionally, we are willing and able to assist in building units for disaster relief, should the need arise."
