“I am very proud of Skyline Champion’s accomplishments in the challenging environment experienced during fiscal 2021, as we finished the year with very strong quarterly results,” said Mark Yost, Skyline Champion’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the year the team’s exceptional efforts allowed the Company to increase production in response to surging demand despite a challenging operating environment, while remaining focused on the health and safety of all our employees and partners. In addition, we were able to leverage our strong balance sheet and complete the acquisition of ScotBilt Homes, helping to broaden our footprint and add efficient manufacturing facilities to our operations. Demand for affordable housing solutions accelerated over the past year, and with our investments to simplify the customer buying experience, automate and increase capacity, Skyline Champion is in an amazing position to capitalize on this demand.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 increased 48.6% to $447.6 million compared to the prior-year period. The number of U.S. factory-built homes sold in the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 increased 28.7% to 5,923 compared to the prior year fourth quarter, as a result of strong demand and increased production levels. The ASP per U.S. home sold increased 11.6% to $67,200 due to price increases in response to rising material costs. The number of Canadian factory-built homes sold in the quarter increased to 419 homes compared to 130 homes in the prior-year period due to stronger demand and improved production levels. Total backlog for Skyline Champion was $858.6 million as of April 3, 2021 compared to $127.5 million as of March 28, 2020. Backlog increased $370.1 million during the quarter compared to a decrease of $5.6 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2020 driven by strong order levels that have outpaced production and the acquisition of ScotBilt Homes, LLC and related companies.

Gross profit increased by 65.2% to $99.1 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 compared to the prior-year period. Gross profit margin was 22.1% of net sales, a 220 basis point expansion compared to 19.9% in the fourth quarter fiscal 2020. The increase in the gross profit margin was driven by higher sales growth due to higher volume and pricing as well as operational efficiencies.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 increased to $52.5 million from $47.2 million in the same period last year. Lower expenses due to decreased travel and marketing were more than offset by higher variable compensation and investment in the company’s online customer experience platform.

Net income for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 was $33.9 million, a significant improvement compared to net income of $6.0 million during the same period of the prior year. The increase in net income was mainly driven by the increase in sales and gross profit.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 increased by 155.4% to $51.2 million compared to the fourth quarter fiscal 2020 primarily driven by an increase in net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 470 basis points to 11.4% due to higher sales growth and operational improvements.

As of April 3, 2021, Skyline Champion had $262.6 million of cash and cash equivalents.

Full Year Fiscal 2021 Financial Highlights

For fiscal 2021, net sales were $1,420.9 million which represents an increase of 3.7%, or $51.2 million, compared to fiscal 2020. Full year fiscal 2021 results included an extra week compared to fiscal year 2020 as well as revenue related to the ScotBilt acquisition and U.S. housing ASP growth of 3.9%.

Gross profit increased $8.7 million or 3.1% to $287.7 million for fiscal 2021, compared to $279.0 million for the prior year period. Gross profit margin decreased by 20 basis points to 20.2% of net sales for fiscal 2021, compared to fiscal 2020 primarily due to raw material inflation and extended employee benefits in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

SG&A decreased to $178.9 million for fiscal 2021, compared to $192.5 million in the prior year period primarily due to lower travel and marketing-related expenses.

Net income for fiscal 2021 was $84.9 million compared to net income of $58.2 million for fiscal 2020, an increase of $26.7 million or 46.0% due to an increase in operating income and a decrease in income tax expense.

Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2021 increased by 17.8% to $134.8 million, compared to $114.4 million for fiscal 2020.

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 (including dilutive securities, if any)—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) equity-based compensation awards granted before December 31, 2018, (f) restructuring charges, (g) impairment of assets, and (h) other non-operating costs including those for the acquisition and integration 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. 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. Adjusted EPS is calculated as net income or loss plus (a) equity-based compensation awards granted before December 31, 2018, (b) restructuring charges, (c) impairment of assets, and (d) other non-operating costs including those for the acquisition and integration of businesses, including the related tax effect, if any, on these items.
