  • Stock repurchases were approximately $50 million in the quarter.

Commenting on the quarter, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Boor said, “Despite winter months typically being slower, our orders written this quarter, on a same-plant basis, were the highest in the last six quarters. Dealer orders continue to improve while the return of community orders still lies ahead. Our manufacturing and retail operations have executed very well through this downturn, and each of our plants is positioned to respond to improving conditions.”

He continued, “Our continuing strong cash flow has enabled us to remain focused on the underlying critical need for quality, affordable homes. To that end, in December we were excited to announce our new Anthem series, the first nationally available HUD-approved manufactured duplex. This is a great example of how we are working with developers and community operators on innovative solutions to improve housing affordability.”

2024 Stock Repurchase Program

On Jan. 30, 2024, the company’s Board of Directors approved a new $100 million stock repurchase program that may be used to purchase its outstanding common stock. This increases the total available to $139 million including the amount remaining under the program announced in 2023.

The purchases may be made in the open market or one or more privately negotiated transactions in compliance with applicable securities laws and other legal requirements. While there is no expiration date, the actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased under the program will be determined by the Company in its discretion and will depend on a number of factors, including market conditions, applicable legal requirements and other strategic capital needs and opportunities. The plan does not obligate Cavco to acquire any particular amount of common stock and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The Company expects to finance the program from existing cash resources.
