Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, chairman, president and CEO said in the announcement, “We are pleased to report positive results for the final quarter of this fiscal year. Although the winter quarter following the holidays typically has lower sales volume compared to the rest of the year, we experienced a more consistent rate of new-home orders during this quarter than the same quarter last year. We believe this is an indication of a modestly strengthening market environment in which consumer confidence levels and employment rates have been reported as improving.”
“Meanwhile,” he continued, “we have been working to increase our overall market coverage. Cavco is beginning fiscal year 2016 with factories now producing manufactured homes for most key domestic regions, including the Midwest and certain Canadian provinces served by the recently added operations of Fairmont Homes. We have also strengthened our presence and capabilities in the park model RV industry with the purchase of Chariot Eagle in Florida. Our combined operations provide a solid platform to continue to produce homes that are responsive to ongoing developments in regional and national affordable housing markets.”
