TROY, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE )--Skyline Champion Corporation (NYSE: SKY) (“Skyline Champion”) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended July 2, 2022 (“fiscal 2023”).

First Quarter Fiscal 2023 Highlights (compared to First Quarter Fiscal 2022)

“I am excited to report another strong quarter of sales and earnings growth,” said Mark Yost, Skyline Champion’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our growth and improved profitability levels continue to be driven by the demand for our homes and our team’s ability to increase production levels. The ongoing efforts to deliver better homes faster through streamlining product offerings and investments in capacity and people are paying off as we sequentially reduced our backlog and improved delivery times to our customers. We expect awareness of our housing solutions to continue to increase given the tighter economic environment and challenges within the traditional site-built home market. Innovation is a priority as we continue to improve the process of building and buying a home for our customers, reinforcing our ability to capture the new growth opportunities that are emerging.”

Net sales for the first quarter fiscal 2023 increased 42.3% to $725.9 million compared to the prior-year period. The number of U.S. homes sold in the first quarter fiscal 2023 increased 6.9% to 6,813. Volume growth during the quarter was driven by increased shipments from improved production levels. The ASP per U.S. home sold increased 35.1% to $97,000 due to the mix of units sold and price increases to offset inflation in materials, labor and transportation costs. The number of Canadian factory-built homes sold in the quarter decreased to 352 homes compared to 385 homes in the prior-year period due to the timing of home shipments. Total backlog for Skyline Champion was $1.4 billion as of July 2, 2022, compared to $1.2 billion as of July 3, 2021. Backlog increased primarily due to higher average selling prices per home, partially offset by increased production and moderation of order rates.

Gross profit increased by 105.6% to $229.3 million in the first quarter fiscal 2023 compared to the prior-year period. Gross profit margin was 31.6% of net sales, a 970-basis point expansion compared to 21.9% in the first quarter fiscal 2022. The ongoing improvement in gross profit margin is being driven by higher volumes, pricing, operational efficiencies, and product mix, including sales to the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the quarter.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the first quarter fiscal 2023 increased to $72.3 million from $54.0 million in the same period last year. SG&A as a percentage of net sales decreased 60 basis points to 10.0%. Higher volumes, increased profitability, and fixed cost leverage during the quarter more than offset higher compensation expenses, additional investments in capacity and the ongoing investments in the enhanced customer buying experience.

Net income increased by 173.1% to $117.2 million for the first quarter fiscal 2023 compared to the prior-year period. The increase in net income was driven by the increase in sales volume, pricing, and operating leverage.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter fiscal 2023 increased by 159.4% to $162.7 million compared to the first quarter fiscal 2022 driven by an increase in net sales and improved profitability. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 1,010 basis points to 22.4% due to higher sales and continued operational improvements increasing the leverage of fixed costs.

As of July 2, 2022, Skyline Champion had $463.8 million of cash and cash equivalents.

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 and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, 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) restructuring charges and impairment of assets, (f) other non-operating income and costs, including those for the acquisition and integration or disposition of businesses. 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. Adjusted EBITDA does not purport to represent cash flow provided by, or used in, operating activities as defined by U.S. GAAP. 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 its 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.
