Commenting on the results, Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are proud to report strong results in what is typically a seasonally slower winter period. This quarter, growing market demand led to improvement across all of our housing product lines. Shipment volume for the manufactured housing industry and the Company was also aided by government orders for disaster relief units, which further enhanced home sales growth."

Mr. Stegmayer continued, "We remained focused on increasing core sales and expanding business opportunities in areas with significant affordable housing demand. A recent example of this strategy is the purchase of Lexington Homes in April 2017. This manufacturing facility will serve as our base to build a stronger presence in Mississippi and the surrounding states which are historically good markets for factory built homes."

Cavco's management will hold a conference call to review these results tomorrow, June 13, 2017, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Time). Interested parties can access a live webcast of the conference call on the Internet at under the Investor Relations link. An archive of the webcast and presentation will be available for 90 days at under the Investor Relations link.
