Skyline Champion Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

October 30, 2019

ELKHART, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Skyline Champion Corporation (NYSE:SKY) (“Skyline Champion”) today announced financial results for its second quarter ended September 28, 2019 of the fiscal year ending March 28, 2020 (“fiscal 2020”).

Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Highlights (compared to Second Quarter Fiscal 2019)

  • Net sales decreased 0.3% to $354.5 million
  • U.S. factory built net sales increased 2.0% to $312.8 million
  • Gross profit as a percent of sales expanded by 430 basis points to 20.9%
  • Net income of $17.7 million, compared to a net loss of $77.0 million
  • Earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.31, compared to a loss of $1.42
  • Excluding non-recurring expenses, Adjusted EPS was $0.34, an increase of 70% compared to $0.20
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 36% to $32.5 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 250 basis points to 9.2%
  • Announced the appointment of two additional independent directors to the Skyline Champion Board of Directors

“We continued to deliver expansion of gross margin, EPS, net income, and Adjusted EBITDA through our focused efforts on operational improvements, coupled with lower material costs,” said Mark Yost, Skyline Champion’s Chief Executive Officer. “I am proud of our ability to generate strong profit improvement as we continue to invest in growth and ramp up production at our Leesville, LA facility. As anticipated, consolidated revenue was stable year-over-year with growth in our U.S. and Canadian housing segments offset by continued softness in our trucking business. For the remainder of our fiscal year, we expect year-over-year volumes to improve modestly.”

“During the quarter, we successfully started shipping our new class of homes with specifications compliant with the GSE’s home financing programs. In addition, we are excited to introduce our Genesis® brand of homes, which is designed for the new class of homes, to give builder-developers a strategic alternative to better serve the growing need for attainable housing.”

Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

The business combination that created Skyline Champion closed on June 1, 2018, as a result the second quarter fiscal 2020 represents the first reporting period in which year-over-year comparables include a full quarter of Skyline Champion results.

Net sales for the second quarter fiscal 2020 decreased 0.3% to $354.5 million compared to the prior-year second quarter. The number of U.S. factory-built homes sold by Skyline Champion in the second quarter fiscal 2020 decreased 0.2% to 5,026 compared to the prior year second quarter. The decrease in number of homes sold was offset by a 2% increase in average selling price (“ASP”) per U.S. home sold to $62,200. ASP increased primarily due to a shift in product mix. The number of Canadian factory-built homes sold in the quarter remained stable at 311 homes compared to 312 homes in the prior-year second quarter. Total backlog for Skyline Champion was $172 million as of September 28, 2019 compared to $252 million as of September 29, 2018 as industry retailers have normalized their order cadence to keep pace with customer demand.

Gross profit increased by 25% to $74.1 million in the second quarter fiscal 2020 compared to the prior-year period. Gross profit was 20.9% of net sales for the second quarter fiscal 2020, a 430 basis point improvement compared to 16.6% in the second quarter fiscal 2019. Gross profit expansion was driven by material pricing from synergies and market normalization, as well benefits from the rationalization of product offerings, and plant operating improvements.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter fiscal 2020 decreased to $48.4 million from $128.1 million in the same period last year, primarily due to non-reoccurring, non-cash, equity-based compensation expense of $85.8 million recognized in the prior year. The equity-based compensation expense was from the vesting of restricted shares issued to employees and directors triggered by the secondary offerings that closed during the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

Net income for the second quarter fiscal 2020 was $17.7 million, compared to a net loss of $77.0 million during the same period of the prior year. The increase in net income was driven by an increase in profitability from higher gross profit, a reduction in equity-based compensation, the absence of other expenses related to the business combination and secondary offerings, and lower net interest expense. EPS improved to $0.31, compared to a loss per share of $1.42. Excluding non-recurring expenses, Adjusted EPS of $0.34 increased 70% from $0.20.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter fiscal 2020 increased by 36% to $32.5 million compared to the second quarter fiscal 2019. The increase was primarily driven by improved gross profit. The Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 250 basis points to 9.2%.

As of September 28, 2019, Skyline Champion had $154.7 million of cash and cash equivalents and $39.4 million of unused borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility.

About Skyline Champion Corporation:

Skyline Champion Corporation (NYSE: SKY) was formed on June 1, 2018 as the result of the combination of Skyline Corporation (“Skyline”) and the operating assets of Champion Enterprises Holdings, LLC (“Champion”). The combined company employs approximately 7,000 people and is the largest independent, publicly traded, factory-built housing company in North America. With more than 65 years of homebuilding experience and 38 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and western Canada, Skyline Champion is well positioned with a leading portfolio of manufactured and modular homes, park-models and modular buildings for the multi-family, hospitality, senior and workforce housing sectors.

In addition to its core home building business, Skyline Champion operates a factory-direct retail business, Titan Factory Direct, with 21 retail locations spanning the southern United States, and Star Fleet Trucking, providing transportation services to the manufactured housing and other industries from several dispatch locations across the United States.

Skyline Champion builds homes under some of the most well know brand names in the factory-built housing industry including Skyline Homes, Champion Home Builders, Genesis Homes, Athens Park Models, Dutch Housing, Excel Homes, Homes of Merit, New Era, Redman Homes, Shore Park, Silvercrest, Titan Homes in the U.S. and Moduline and SRI Homes in western Canada.

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, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Adjusted Earnings Per Share—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 expense, net, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) gain or loss from discontinued operations, (e) foreign currency gains and losses, (f) equity-based compensation awards granted before December 31, 2018, (g) restructuring charges, (h) impairment of assets, and (i) other non-operating costs including those for the acquisition and integration or disposition of businesses and idle facilities. 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. 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 our 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.
