Basis of Presentation and Business

On June 1, 2018, Skyline Champion Corporation (formerly known as Skyline Corporation), an Indiana corporation (the “Company”) and Champion Enterprises Holdings, LLC (“Champion Holdings”) completed the transactions contemplated by the Share Contribution & Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”), dated as of January 5, 2018, by and between the Company and Champion Holdings. Under the Exchange Agreement, (i) Champion Holdings contributed to the Company all of the issued and outstanding equity interests of each of Champion Holdings’ wholly-owned operating subsidiaries (the “Contributed Shares”), and (ii) in exchange for the Contributed Shares, the Company issued to the members of Champion Holdings, in the aggregate, 47,752,008 shares of the Company common stock (“Skyline Common Stock”) (such issuance, the “Shares Issuance”). Immediately following the Shares Issuance, the members of Champion Holdings collectively held 84.5%, and the Company’s pre-closing shareholders collectively held 15.5%, of the issued and outstanding Skyline Common Stock on a fully-diluted basis. The contribution of the Contributed Shares by Champion Holdings to Skyline, and the Shares Issuance by the Company to the members of Champion Holdings are collectively referred to herein as the “Exchange.”

The Exchange was treated as a purchase of the Company by Champion Holdings for accounting and financial reporting purposes. As a result, the financial results for the six months ending September 29, 2018 are comprised of 1) the results of Champion Holdings for the period between April 1, 2018 and May 31, 2018 and 2) the Company, after giving effect to the Exchange, from June 1, 2018 through September 29, 2018.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company, have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of SEC Regulation S-X. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“U.S. GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries after elimination of intercompany balances and transactions. In the opinion of management, these statements include all normal recurring adjustments necessary to fairly state the Company’s consolidated results of operations, cash flows and financial position. The Company has evaluated subsequent events after the balance sheet date through the date of the filing of this report with the SEC. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes to the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, which was filed with the SEC on May 23, 2019.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes thereto. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations or cash flows for the full year.

The Company’s fiscal year is a 52- or 53-week period that ends on the Saturday nearest to March 31. The Company’s current fiscal year, “fiscal 2020”, will end on March 28, 2020. References to “fiscal 2019” refer to the Company’s fiscal year ended March 30, 2019. The three and six months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018 each included 13 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively.  

The Company’s operations consist of manufacturing, retail and transportation activities. The Company operates 33 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States (“U.S.”) and 5 manufacturing facilities in western Canada that primarily construct factory-built, timber-framed manufactured and modular houses that are sold primarily to independent retailers and builders/developers. The Company’s retail operations consist of 21 sales centers that sell manufactured houses to consumers primarily in the Southern U.S. The Company’s transportation business engages independent owners/drivers to transport recreational vehicles throughout the U.S. and Canada and manufactured houses in certain regions of the U.S.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements: In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASC 842”), to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. A lessee should recognize in the consolidated balance sheet a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and an asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. The recognition, measurement and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee have not significantly changed from previous requirements. This ASC 842 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 31, 2018 and modified retrospective application is permitted.

The Company adopted ASC 842 as of March 31, 2019, the first day of fiscal 2020 using the modified retrospective approach and without restating comparative periods. The Company has elected to apply the transition package of three practical expedients which allow companies not to reassess whether agreements contain leases, the classification of leases, and the capitalization of initial direct costs. The Company did not elect the practical expedient which permits the use of hindsight when determining the lease term and assessing right-of-use assets for impairment. As permitted by the standard, the Company elected to: 1) recognize lease expense for leases with a term of 12 months or less on a straight-line basis over the lease term and will not recognize any right of use assets or lease liabilities for those leases, and 2) not separate lease and non-lease components.

The primary financial statement impact upon adoption was the recognition, on a discounted basis, of the Company's minimum commitments under non-cancelable operating leases as right of use assets and obligations on the consolidated balance sheets. The adoption of ASC 842 resulted in the recognition of lease-related assets and liabilities of $13.7 million. The standard did not have a material impact on the Company's results of operations or cash flows.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Pending Adoption: In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. The standard simplifies the accounting for goodwill impairments and allows a goodwill impairment charge to be based on the amount of a reporting unit’s carrying value in excess of its fair value. This eliminates the requirement to calculate the implied fair value of goodwill or what is known as “Step 2” under the current guidance. This guidance is effective for annual and interim periods of public entities beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the potential impact this ASU will have on its consolidated financial statements.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. This guidance requires the measurement of all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This guidance also requires enhanced disclosures regarding significant estimates and judgments used in estimating credit losses. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

There were no other accounting standards recently issued that are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

Business Combination

The Exchange was completed on June 1, 2018 and was accounted for as a reverse acquisition under the acquisition method of accounting as provided by the FASB Accounting Standards Codification 805, Business Combinations. Champion Holdings was deemed to be the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes. The assets acquired and liabilities assumed as a result of the Exchange were recorded at their respective fair values and added to the carrying value of Champion Holdings’ existing assets and liabilities. The Company incurred acquisition-related costs of approximately $0.5 million and $6.9 million for the three and six months ended September 29, 2018, respectively, which were classified as other expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. Additionally, the Company incurred approximately $6.0 million in stock compensation expense related to former Skyline employees during the first quarter of fiscal 2019, which is recorded in selling, general, and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. These types of costs were 0t incurred during fiscal 2020.

The purchase price of the acquisition was determined with reference to the value of equity (common stock) of the Company based on the closing price on June 1, 2018 of $33.39 per share. The purchase price has been allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed using their estimated fair values at June 1, 2018, the closing of the Exchange. The purchase price and the allocation have been used to prepare the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.

The purchase price was allocated as follows:

Goodwill is primarily attributable to expected synergies from the combination of the companies, including, but not limited to, expected cost synergies through procurement activities and operational improvements through sharing of best practices. Goodwill, which is not deductible for income tax purposes, was allocated to the U.S. Factory-built Housing reporting unit.

Cash, trade receivables, other assets, accounts payable, accrued and other liabilities were generally stated at historical carrying values given the short-term nature of these assets and liabilities. Intangible assets consist primarily of amounts recognized for the fair value of customer relationships and trade names and were based on an independent appraisal. Customer-based assets include the Company’s established relationships with its customers and the ability of those customers to generate future economic profits for the Company. The Company estimates that these intangible assets have a weighted average useful life of ten years. Fair value estimates of property, plant, and equipment were based on independent appraisals and broker opinions of value, giving consideration to the highest and best use of the assets. Key assumptions used in the

appraisals were based on a combination of market and cost approaches, as appropriate. Level 3 fair value estimates of $40.2 million related to property, plant, and equipment and $52.1 million related to intangible assets were recognized in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as a result of the allocation of the purchase price from the Exchange. The Company determined $2.1 million of property acquired in the Exchange met the definition of held for sale at the acquisition date and was classified in other current assets. The fair value less cost to sell of this held for sale property is evaluated each reporting period to determine if it has changed. A loss of $1.0 million was recorded during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 related to this held for sale property based on updated market information. Assets held for sale were $1.1 million and $2.1 million as of September 28, 2019 and March 30, 2019, respectively. For further information on acquired assets measured at fair value, see Note 5, Goodwill and Intangible Assets.

 

The Company allocated a portion of the purchase price to certain realizable deferred tax assets totaling $27.3 million. Deferred tax assets are primarily federal and state net operating loss carryforwards and credits offset by a valuation allowance for certain state net operating loss carryforwards that are not expected to be realized. The deferred tax assets are offset by deferred tax liabilities of $20.3 million resulting from the purchase price allocation step-up in fair value that exceed the historical tax basis.

The statement of operations for the three and six months ended September 29, 2018 includes $68.0 and $90.1 million, respectively, of net sales attributable to the acquired Skyline operations.

A summary of the results of operations for the Company, on an as reported and on a pro forma basis, are as follows:

The pro forma results are based on adding the historical results of operations of Champion Holdings and Skyline and adjusting those historical amounts for the amortization of intangibles created in the Exchange; the increase in depreciation as a result of the step-up in fair value of property, plant, and equipment; removing transaction costs directly associated with the Exchange; removing equity-based compensation expense directly resulting from the Exchange; reflecting the financing arrangements entered into in connection with the Exchange, and adjusting those items for income taxes. The pro forma disclosures do not give effect to the potential impact of current financial conditions, any anticipated synergies, operating efficiencies or cost savings that may result from the Exchange or any integration costs. The pro forma data is intended for informational purposes and is not indicative of the future results of operations.

The Exchange Agreement provided that Champion Holdings was permitted to pay a capital distribution prior to completion of the Exchange to the extent it had cash in excess of debt and other debt-like items and unpaid Exchange fees and expenses. Prior to the completion of the Exchange, Champion Holdings made a capital distribution to its members equal to an aggregate of $65.3 million (of which $22.5 million was reflected as a reduction to retained earnings and $42.8 million was reflected as a reduction to members’ contributed capital).

Property, Plant, and Equipment

Property, plant, and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is calculated primarily on the straight-line method, generally over the following estimated useful lives: land improvements – 3 to 10 years; buildings and improvements – 8 to 25 years; and vehicles and machinery and equipment – 3 to 8 years. Depreciation expense for the three months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018 was $3.6 million and $2.8 million, respectively. Depreciation expense for the six months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018 was $6.7 million and $5.3 million, respectively.

Goodwill and Intangible Assets

Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of an acquired business over the fair value of the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. At September 28, 2019 and March 30, 2019, the Company had goodwill of $173.5 million and $173.4 million, respectively. The change from March 30, 2019 was a result of the finalization of the allocation of net assets recognized in connection with the Exchange.

The Company recognized finite-lived intangibles for customer relationships of $43.1 million and trade names of $9.0 million as a result of the allocation of the purchase price from the Exchange. The fair value of the customer relationship intangible asset was estimated using the multi-period excess earnings method of the income approach. The fair value of the customer relationship intangible asset was determined based on estimates and assumptions of projected cash flows attributable to the acquired customer relationships, the annual attrition rate of existing customer relationships, the contributory asset charges attributable to the assets that support the customer relationships, such as net working capital, property, plant, and equipment, trade name, and workforce, the economic life and the discount rate as determined at the time of the final valuation. The fair value of the trade name intangible asset was estimated using the relief-from-royalty method of the income approach. The fair value of the trade names intangible asset was determined based on estimates and assumptions used for the expected life of the intangible asset, the royalty rate and the discount rate that reflects the level of risk associated with the future cash flows as determined at the time of the final valuation. During the three months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018, amortization of intangible assets was $1.3 million and $1.2 million, respectively.  During the six months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018, amortization of intangible assets was $2.7 million and $1.7 million, respectively.

On June 5, 2018, the Company entered into a credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with a syndicate of banks. The Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility of up to $100.0 million, including a letter of credit sub-facility of not less than $45.0 million. Initial borrowings under the Credit Agreement were used to repay the Company’s existing $46.9 million term loans (“Term Loans”) and replace the Company’s existing cash collateralized stand-alone letter of credit facility. The revolving credit facility allows the Company to draw down, repay and re-draw loans on the available funds during the term of the Credit Agreement. During the three and six months ended September 28, 2019, the Company repaid $5.0 million and $10.0 million, respectively, of amounts previously drawn on the revolving credit facility.

The Credit Agreement matures on June 5, 2023 and has no scheduled amortization. The interest rate under the Credit Agreement adjusts based on the first lien net leverage of the Company from a high of LIBOR plus 2.25% and ABR plus 1.25% when the first lien net leverage is equal to or greater than 2.00:1.00, to a low of LIBOR plus 1.50% and ABR plus 0.50% when the first lien net leverage is below 0.50:1.00. In addition, the Company is obligated to pay an unused line fee ranging between 0.40% and 0.25% (depending on the first lien net leverage) in respect of unused commitments under the Credit Agreement. At September 28, 2019 the interest rate on borrowings under the Credit Agreement was 3.57%. At September 28, 2019, letters of credit issued under the Credit Agreement totaled $28.7 million. Total available borrowings under the Credit Agreement as of September 28, 2019 were $39.4 million.

Obligations under industrial revenue bonds are supported by letters of credit and bear interest based on a municipal bond index rate. The weighted-average interest rate at September 28, 2019, including related costs and fees, was 3.69%. At March 30, 2019, the weighted average interest rate was 3.62%. The industrial revenue bonds require lump-sum payments of principal upon maturity in 2029.

 

The Credit Agreement contains covenants that restrict the amount of additional debt, liens and certain payments, including equity buybacks, investments, dispositions, mergers and consolidations, among other restrictions as defined. The Company was in compliance with all covenants of the Credit Agreement as of September 28, 2019.

Floor Plan Payable

The Company’s retail operations utilize floor plan financing to fund the acquisition of manufactured homes for display or resale. At September 28, 2019 and March 30, 2019, the Company had outstanding borrowings on floor plan financing agreements of $30.5 million and $33.3 million, respectively. Total credit line capacity provided under the agreements was $47.0 million as of September 28, 2019. Borrowings are secured by the homes and are required to be repaid when the Company sells the home to a customer.

Leases

The Company has operating leases for land, manufacturing and office facilities, and equipment. The Company's lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that the Company will exercise such option. The Company's leases do not contain material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants. Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease terms. Lease expense included in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations is shown below:

The discount rate used to measure a lease obligation should be the rate implicit in the lease; however, the Company’s operating leases generally do not provide an implicit rate. Accordingly, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate at lease commencement to determine the present value of lease payments. The incremental borrowing rate is an entity-specific rate which represents the rate of interest a lessee would pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term with similar payments.

Income Taxes

For the three months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018, the Company recorded $7.5 million and $5.8 million of income tax expense and had an effective tax rate of 29.8% and (8.2%), respectively. For the six months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018, the Company recorded $14.2 million and $9.3 million of income tax expense and had an effective tax rate of 28.7% and (13.5%),  respectively. The change in the effective tax rate for the three and six months ended September 28, 2019, compared with the same respective periods of the prior year, was primarily due to costs related to the Exchange for which no tax benefit could be recognized.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the three and six months ended September 28, 2019 differs from the federal statutory income tax rate of 21.0% due primarily to the effect of non-deductible expenses, state and local income taxes and results in foreign jurisdictions. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three and six months ended September 29, 2018 differed from the federal statutory rate primarily due to the effect of non-deductible expenses, state and local income taxes, one-time charges related to the Exchange and results in foreign jurisdictions and non-taxable entities.

During the six months ended September 28, 2019, the Company’s uncertain tax position did not change. During the six months ended September 29, 2018, the Company’s uncertain tax position decreased by $0.4 million due to expiration of certain statutes of limitations. The Company estimates no material changes to uncertain tax benefits in the next twelve months. The Company records interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions as a component of income tax expense. Net interest and penalties for the periods presented herein were not significant.

Earnings Per Share

Basic net income (loss) per share (“EPS”) attributable to the Company was computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to the Company by the average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Certain of the Company’s time-vesting restricted share awards are considered participating securities. Diluted earnings per common share is computed based on the more dilutive of (i) the two-class method, assuming the participating securities are not exercised or converted; or (ii) the summation of average common shares outstanding and additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the dilutive potential common shares had been issued.

During the three and six months ended September 28, 2019, the two-class method was more dilutive and was not applicable to the September 29, 2018 computation given the net loss recorded for the three and six months ended September 29, 2018. The number of shares used to calculate earnings per share prior to the Exchange was determined based on the exchange ratio, as defined in the Exchange Agreement.

 

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per common share:

Transactions with Related Parties

Prior to the Exchange, the Company was party to a Management Advisory Services Agreement (“Services Agreement”) with Centerbridge Advisors, LLC; MAK Management L.P.; and Sankaty Advisors, LLC (collectively, the “Managers”), affiliates of which collectively owned a majority of the units of Champion Holdings and the Company’s common stock (the “Principal Shareholders”), whereby the Principal Shareholders provided management, consulting, financial and other advisory services to Champion Holdings. Management fee expense during fiscal 2019, recognized prior to the Exchange, was $0.3 million. The Services Agreement was terminated in connection with the Exchange. The Management fee expense is included in selling, general, and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operation.

Segment Information

Financial results for the Company's reportable segments have been prepared using a management approach, which is consistent with the basis and manner in which financial information is evaluated by the Company's chief operating decision maker in allocating resources and in assessing performance. The Company’s chief operating decision maker, the Chief Executive Officer, evaluates the performance of the Company’s segment primarily based on net sales, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and operating assets.

The Company operates in 2 reportable segments: (i) U.S. Factory-built Housing, which includes manufacturing and retail housing operations and (ii) Canadian Factory-built Housing. Corporate/Other includes the Company’s transportation operations, corporate costs directly incurred for all segments and intersegment eliminations. Segments are generally determined by geography. Segment data includes intersegment revenues and corporate office costs that are directly and exclusively incurred for each segment. Total assets for Corporate/Other primarily include cash and certain deferred tax items not specifically allocated to another segment.

Commitments, Contingencies and Legal Proceedings

Repurchase Contingencies and Guarantees

The Company is contingently liable under terms of repurchase agreements with lending institutions that provide wholesale floor plan financing to retailers. These arrangements, which are customary in the manufactured housing industry, provide for the repurchase of products sold to retailers in the event of default by the retailer on their agreement to pay the financial institution. The risk of loss from these agreements is spread over numerous retailers. The repurchase price is generally determined by the original sales price of the product and pre-defined curtailment arrangements. The Company accounts for the guarantees under its repurchase agreements with the retailers’ financing institutions by estimating and deferring a portion of the related product sale that represents the estimated fair value of the repurchase obligation. The estimated fair value takes into account the estimate of the loss the Company will incur upon resale of any repurchases. This estimate is based on recent historical experience supplemented by management’s assessment of current economic and other conditions affecting the Company’s retailers. The reserve for estimated losses under repurchase agreements was $0.9 million at September 28, 2019 and $1.0 million at March 30, 2019. Excluding the resale value of the homes, the contingent repurchase obligation as of September 28, 2019 was estimated to be approximately $157.4 million. Losses incurred on homes repurchased were immaterial during each of the three and six months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018.

In addition to the repurchase agreements, the Company has agreed to guarantee from 3% to 50% of certain retailers’ outstanding loans to a floor plan lender. At September 28, 2019, those guarantees totaled $0.7 million of which $0.5 million was outstanding.

At September 28, 2019, the Company was contingently obligated for approximately $28.7 million under letters of credit, primarily consisting of $12.7 million to support long-term debt, $15.7 million to support the casualty insurance program, and $0.3 million to support bonding agreements. The letters of credit are backed by a sub-facility under the New Credit Agreement. The Company was also contingently obligated for $24.1 million under surety bonds, generally to support performance on long-term construction contracts and license and service bonding requirements.

In the normal course of business, the Company’s former subsidiaries that operated in the United Kingdom historically provided certain guarantees to two customers. Those guarantees provide contractual liability for proven construction defects up to 12 years from the date of delivery of certain products. The guarantees remain a contingent liability of the Company which declines over time through October 2027. As of the date of this report, the Company expects few, if any, claims to be reported under the terms of the guarantees.

Legal Proceedings

The Company has agreed to indemnify counterparties in the ordinary course of its business in agreements to acquire and sell business assets and in financing arrangements. The Company is subject to various legal proceedings and claims that arise in the ordinary course of its business. As of the date of this filing, the Company believes the ultimate liability with respect to these contingent obligations will not have, either individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Item 2.

MANAGEMENT’ S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following should be read in conjunction with Skyline Champion Corporation’s condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes that appear in Item I of this Report.

Overview

On June 1, 2018, Skyline Champion Corporation (the “Company”) was formed by Skyline Corporation (“Skyline”) and Champion Enterprises Holdings, LLC (“Champion”) combining their operations pursuant to the Share Contribution & Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”), dated as of January 5, 2018, by and between Skyline and Champion Holdings, as described in further detail below. Champion Holdings was formed as a Delaware limited liability company in 2010. Skyline was originally incorporated in Indiana in 1959.  

The Company is a leading producer of factory-built housing in the U.S. and Canada. The Company serves as a complete solutions provider across complementary and vertically integrated businesses including manufactured offsite construction, company-owned retail locations, and transportation logistics services. The Company is the largest independent publicly traded factory-built solutions provider in North America based on revenue and markets its homes under several nationally recognized brand names 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. The Company operates 33 manufacturing facilities throughout the U.S. and five manufacturing facilities in western Canada that primarily construct factory-built, timber-framed manufactured and modular houses that are sold primarily to independent retailers, builders/developers, and manufactured home community operators. The Company’s retail operations consist of 21 sales centers that sell manufactured homes to consumers primarily in the southern U.S. The Company’s transportation business engages independent owners/drivers to transport manufactured homes and recreational vehicles throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Acquisitions and Expansions

Over the last several years, market demand for the Company’s products, primarily affordable housing in the U.S., has continued to improve. As a result, the Company has focused on operational improvements to make existing manufacturing facilities more profitable as well as executing measured expansion of its manufacturing and retail footprint.

In response to the increasing demand for factory-built housing in the U.S., the Company has increased capacity through strategic acquisitions and expansions of its manufacturing footprint. The Company is focused on growing in strong HUD-markets across the U.S. as well as further expanding into the Northeast and Midwest U.S. modular housing markets. During June 2019, the Company began production at its newest manufactured housing facility in Leesville, Louisiana. During fiscal 2019, the Company completed its expansion of its Corona, California facility by adding a second production line and expanded its Leola, Pennsylvania campus by adding an additional plant. Production at the Leola facility began in April 2019. The Exchange added eight plants to the Company’s manufacturing footprint in fiscal 2019 (described in more detail below). In April 2017, the Company completed the purchase of a factory-built housing plant in Mansfield, Texas. In January 2017, the Company restarted operations at the Liverpool, Pennsylvania location, which was one of five modular manufacturing facilities acquired through a series of transactions with Innovative Building Systems, LLC and its subsidiaries. (“IBS” or the “IBS Acquisition”). The other facilities acquired from IBS are idle and provide the Company with opportunity to add capacity.

The Company has also focused on expansion of its company-owned retail operations, opening three additional retail sales centers during fiscal 2018 and five during fiscal 2017. Management believes retail expansion provides an opportunity to increase the Company’s presence in market segments that are not currently served through its independent retail network, while also providing for expansion and increased utilization of existing manufacturing operations.

These acquisitions and investments are part of a strategy to grow and diversify revenue with a focus on increasing the Company’s HUD and modular homebuilding presence in the U.S. as well as improving the results of operations. These acquisitions and investments are included in the consolidated results for periods subsequent to their respective acquisition dates.

Combination with Skyline

On January 5, 2018, Champion Holdings and Skyline entered into an Exchange Agreement pursuant to which the two companies agreed to combine their operations. The Exchange was completed on June 1, 2018 and was accounted for as a reverse acquisition under the acquisition method of accounting as provided by FASB Accounting Standards Codification 805, Business Combinations (“ASC 805”). Champion Holdings was determined to be the acquirer for accounting and financial reporting purposes. The assets acquired and liabilities assumed by Champion Holdings as a result of the Exchange were recorded at their respective fair values and added to the carrying value of Champion Holdings existing assets and liabilities. As Champion Holdings is the accounting acquirer, the Company’s financial results for the six months ending September 29, 2018 are comprised of 1) the results of Champion Holdings for the period between April 1, 2018 and May 31, 2018 and 2) the Company, after giving effect to the Exchange, from June 1, 2018 through September 29, 2018.

Industry and Company Outlook

For the six months ended September 28, 2019, approximately 77% of the Company’s U.S. manufacturing sales were generated from the manufacture of homes that comply with the Federal HUD-code construction standard in the U.S. Industry shipments of HUD-code homes were 62,471 during the eight months ended August 31, 2019 compared to 66,721 units shipped in same period of the prior year. The Company’s HUD market share during those periods was 17.1% versus 14.4% in the comparable period of the prior year. Industry sales of HUD-code homes have increased since 2009, when 50,000 HUD-code homes were sold. Fewer factory-built homes were sold in 2009 than in any year since 1959. While HUD-code factory-built home shipments have improved modestly over the past few years, the industry continues to operate at relatively low levels compared to historical shipment statistics. For instance, the long-term average for manufactured home shipments since 1960 is approximately 222,000 units per year.

Net sales for the three months ended September 28, 2019 were $354.5 million, a decrease of $1.0 million, or 0.3% compared to the three months ended September 29, 2018. The following is a summary of the change by operating segment.

U.S. Factory-built Housing:

Sales of homes for the Company’s U.S. manufacturing and retail operations increased by $6.2 million, or 2.0%. The improvement was due to a 2.3% increase in average home selling prices resulting from a shift in product mix. Product mix fluctuations result from consumer preferences regarding the size and styles of homes selected for purchase, as well as opting for home upgrade packages as well as regional housing dynamics.  

Canadian Factory-built Housing:

The Canadian Factory-built Housing segment net sales increased by $1.0 million, or 4.0% for the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase was due to a 4.3% increase in average home selling price resulting from a shift in product mix. Net sales for the Canadian segment were unfavorably impacted by approximately $0.6 million as the Canadian dollar weakened compared to the U.S. dollar during the second quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to the same period of the prior year.

Corporate/Other:

Net sales for Corporate/Other includes the Company’s transportation business and the elimination of intersegment sales. For the three months ended September 28, 2019, net sales decreased $8.2 million, or 35.0%. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales in the Company’s transportation business primarily as a result of lower shipments associated with reduced RV demand in the U.S.

18


 

U.S. Factory-built Housing:

Gross profit for the U.S. Factory-built Housing segment increased by $14.7 million, or 28.9%, during the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Gross profit was 20.9% as a percent of segment net sales for the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to 16.5% in the same period of the prior year. Gross profit expansion was driven by material cost inputs, Exchange synergy capture, rationalization of product offerings and plant operating improvements. These improvements were partially offset by the production ramp costs for capacity expansion at a recently opened manufacturing facility.

Canadian Factory-built Housing:

Gross profit for the Canadian Factory-built Housing segment increased $1.4 million, or 29.8%, during the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Gross profit as a percent of net segment sales was 22.5% for the three months ended September 28, 2019, compared to 18.1% in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin increased due to product mix, lower material commodity pricing, and efforts to reduce fixed expenses during slower economic market cycles.

Corporate/Other:

Gross profit for the Corporate/Other segment decreased $1.0 million, or 26.0%, during the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. However, Corporate/Other gross profit improved as a percent of segment net sales to 18.0% from 15.8%. Gross margins for the Company’s transportation business improved as a percent of sales due in part to less brokered business to other providers at lower margins in response to the decline in revenue caused by the softening of market demand for RVs.

SELLING, GENERAL, AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

Selling, general, and administrative expenses include foreign currency transaction gains and losses, equity compensation, and intangible amortization expense.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $48.4 million for the three months ended September 28, 2019, a decrease of $79.7 million compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to stock compensation expense recognized in the prior year, as explained further below. The following is a summary of the change by operating segment.

 

 

U.S. Factory-built Housing:

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the U.S. Factory-built Housing segment increased $8.0 million, or 30.1%, during the three months ended September 28, 2019 as compared to the same period in the prior year. Selling, general, and administrative expenses, as a percent of segment net sales, was 11.0% for the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to 8.6% during the comparable period in the prior year. The increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses was a combination of factors which include (i) higher sales commissions and incentive compensation, which is generally based on sales volume or a measure of profitability; (ii) an increase in salaries and benefits to maintain competitive compensation packages to retain and recruit team members; and (iii) investment in capacity expansion at a newly opened manufacturing facility.

Canadian Factory-built Housing:

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the Canadian Factory-built Housing segment increased $0.1 million, or 6.3%, during the three months ended September 28, 2019 as compared to the same period of the prior year. As a percent of segment net sales, selling, general, and administrative expenses for the Canadian segment was 7.4% for the three months ended September 28, 2019 compared to 7.2% for the same period in the prior year. The increase is primarily due to higher sales commissions and incentive compensation, which is generally based on sales volume or a measure of profitability.

19


 

Corporate/Other:

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for Corporate/Other includes the Company’s transportation operations, corporate costs incurred for all segments and intersegment eliminations. Selling, general, and administrative expenses for Corporate/Other decreased $87.8 million, or 88.0%, during the three months ended September 28, 2019 as compared to the same period of the prior year. The decrease is mainly related to stock compensation expense recognized in the prior year triggered by the secondary offerings which closed during the second quarter of fiscal 2019 of $85.8 million, as well as a reduction in acquisition integration costs and restructuring costs of $2.7 million.

Interest expense, net was $0.4 million for the three months ended September 28, 2019, a decrease of $0.4 million compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease was related to: (i) higher interest income recognized during the period as a result of higher average cash balances invested in short term facilities and (ii) a lower average outstanding balance on its credit facility as compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease was offset by increased interest expense on the floor plan payable balances due to a higher average outstanding balance as compared to the same period in the prior year, as well as an increase in the effective interest rate on the borrowings.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 28, 2019 was $32.5 million, an increase of $8.7 million from the same period of the prior year. The increase is primarily due improved gross profit levels generated by lower material cost inputs, procurement and operational synergies related to the Exchange, and execution on identified operational improvements. See Adjusted EBITDA definition below for additional information regarding the definition and use of this metric in evaluating the Company’s results.

Net sales for the six months ended September 28, 2019 were $726.3 million, an increase of $48.6 million, or 7.2% over the six months ended September 29, 2018. The following is a summary of the change by operating segment.

22


 

U.S. Factory-built Housing:

The U.S. Factory-built Housing segment accounted for the Company’s net sales growth for the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Sales of homes for the Company’s U.S. manufacturing and retail operations increased by $71.7 million, or 12.5%. The number of homes sold during the six months ended September 28, 2019 increased by 887 units, or 9.3%. Net sales increased by $50.3 million due to the inclusion of the Skyline operations for all six months in the first half of fiscal 2020 compared to the same period of the prior year which only included four months of Skyline operations. The remainder of the increase was due to a combination of factors which included additional manufacturing capacity, plant operating improvements, and an increase in the average home selling price which was driven primarily by product mix. Product mix fluctuations result from consumer preferences regarding the sizes and styles of homes selected for purchase, and opting for home upgrade packages as well as regional housing dynamics.  

Canadian Factory-built Housing:

The Canadian Factory-built Housing segment net sales decreased by $2.6 million, or 5.0% for the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to a 11.6% decrease in number of homes sold, partially offset by a 7.4% increase in average home selling price which was a result of pricing actions taken by the Company as well as shifts in product mix. The number of homes sold decreased due to the decline in manufactured housing demand in the British Columbia and Alberta provinces versus the same period in the prior year. On a constant currency basis, net sales for the Canadian segment were unfavorably impacted by approximately $1.3 million as the Canadian dollar weakened compared to the U.S. dollar during the first half of fiscal 2020 as compared to the same period of the prior year.

Corporate/Other:

Net sales for Corporate/Other includes the Company’s transportation business and the elimination of intersegment sales. For the six months ended September 28, 2019, net sales decreased $20.4 million, or 39.1%. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net sales in the Company’s transportation business primarily as a result of lower shipments associated with reduced RV demand in the U.S.

Gross profit as a percent of sales during the six months ended September 28, 2019 was 20.7% compared to 16.8% during six months ended September 29, 2018. The following is a summary of the change by operating segment.

U.S. Factory-built Housing:

Gross profit for the U.S. Factory-built Housing segment increased by $37.6 million, or 39.2%, during the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in gross profit is due to the increase in sales volumes and improved margins. Gross profit was 20.7% as a percent of segment net sales for the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to 16.8% in the same period of the prior year. Gross profit expansion was driven by favorable material pricing, refinement of product offerings, plant operating improvements, and procurement and operational synergies related to the Exchange, all of which were partially offset by labor inflation.

Canadian Factory-built Housing:

Gross profit for the Canadian Factory-built Housing segment increased $0.6 million, or 6.4%, during the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year. Gross profit as a percent of net sales was 21.1% for the six months ended September 28, 2019, compared to 18.8% in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin increased due to product mix, lower material commodity pricing, and efforts to reduce fixed expenses during slower economic market cycles.

23


 

Corporate/Other:

Gross profit for the Corporate/Other segment decreased $2.4 million, or 28.7%, during the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to the same period in the prior year due to lower sales volume. Corporate/Other gross profit improved as a percent of segment net sales to 18.3% from 15.7%. Gross margins for the Company’s transportation business improved as a percent of sales due in part to less brokered business to other providers at lower margins in response to the decline in revenue caused by the softening of market demand for RVs.

SELLING, GENERAL, AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

Selling, general, and administrative expenses include foreign currency transaction gains and losses, equity compensation and intangible amortization expense.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $100.1 million for the six months ended September 28, 2019, a decrease of $73.0 million compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to stock compensation expense recognized in the prior year, as explained further below. The following is a summary of the change by operating segment.

 

 

U.S. Factory-built Housing:

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the U.S. Factory-built Housing segment increased $19.6 million, or 38.5%, during the six months ended September 28, 2019 as compared to the same period in the prior year. Selling, general, and administrative expenses, as a percent of segment net sales, was 11.0% for the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to 8.9% during the comparable period in the prior year. The inclusion of six months of Skyline operations for the first half of fiscal 2020 versus four months for the same period of the prior year as well as intangible amortization related to the Exchange increased selling, general, and administrative expenses by $6.7 million. The Company recorded ramp up costs for capacity expansion of $2.1 million during the six months ended September 28, 2019. The remainder of the increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses was a combination of factors which include (i) higher sales commissions and incentive compensation, which is generally based on sales volume or a measure of profitability, and (ii) an increase in salaries and benefits to maintain competitive compensation packages to retain and recruit team members.

Canadian Factory-built Housing:

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the Canadian Factory-built Housing segment decreased $0.2 million, or 5.0%, during the six months ended September 28, 2019 as compared to the same period of the prior year. The decrease is due to an effort to reduce fixed expenses during slower economic market cycles, partially offset by higher sales commissions and incentive compensation, which is generally based on sales volume or a measure of profitability. As a percent of segment net sales, selling, general, and administrative expenses for the Canadian segment was 7.5% for both the six months ended September 28, 2019 and the same period in the prior year.

Corporate/Other:

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for Corporate/Other includes the Company’s transportation operations, corporate costs incurred for all segments and intersegment eliminations. Selling, general, and administrative expenses for Corporate/Other decreased $92.5 million, or 78.3%, during the six months ended September 28, 2019 as compared to the same period of the prior year. The decrease is mainly related to stock compensation expense of $93.9 million recognized in the prior year triggered by the Exchange and secondary offerings, as well as a reduction in acquisition integration and restructuring costs of $3.0 million. This decrease was partially offset by a fair market value adjustment charge of $1.0 million related to property acquired in the Exchange and stock-based compensation expense for long term incentive plans of $2.1 million recorded during the six months ended September 28, 2019.

Interest expense, net was $0.7 million for the six months ended September 28, 2019, a decrease of $1.2 million compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease was primarily related to higher interest income recognized during the period as a result of higher average cash balances invested in short term facilities. In addition, the Company incurred reduced interest expense due to (i) a lower weighted average interest rate on its revolving credit facility of 3.9% as compared to 7.4% on the term loans under a previously outstanding credit agreement, and (ii) an average lower outstanding balance on its credit facility as compared to the same period in the prior year.

Income tax expense for the six months ended September 28, 2019 was $14.2 million, representing an effective tax rate of 28.7%, compared to income tax expense of $9.3 million, representing an effective tax rate of (13.5%), for the six months ended September 29, 2018.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the six months ended September 28, 2019 differs from the federal statutory income tax rate of 21.0%, due primarily to the effect of non-deductible expenses, state and local income taxes, and results in foreign jurisdictions. The Company’s effective tax rate for the six months ended September 29, 2018 differed from the federal statutory rate of 21.0% primarily due the effect of non-deductible expenses, state and local income taxes, one-time charges related to the Exchange and results of operations in foreign jurisdictions and non-taxable entities. The effective tax rate for the six months ended September 28, 2019 is more representative of the Company’s ongoing expected effective tax rate.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended September 28, 2019 was $64.6 million, an increase of $18.0 million from the same period of the prior year. The increase is primarily a result of increased operating income after adjusting for the effect of increased depreciation and amortization, transaction-related expenses, integration costs, restructuring costs and non-cash equity-based compensation incurred in connection with the Exchange. The increase in operating income is primarily due to an increase in sales volume from the inclusion of the Skyline operations and an improvement in gross profit margins partially offset by higher selling, general, and administrative costs. See Adjusted EBITDA definition below for additional information regarding the definition and use of this metric in evaluating the Company’s results.

The Company 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 prior to 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. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors to evaluate its performance and that of its competitors. However, the Company’s use of Adjusted EBITDA may vary from that of others in its industry.

In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, investors should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses similar to those adjusted for in this presentation. This presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

Adjusted EBITDA:

 

does not reflect the interest expense on our debt;

 

excludes impairments; and

 

does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

 

although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and

 

other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using non-GAAP financial measures only on a supplemental basis.

BACKLOG

Although orders from customers can be cancelled at any time without penalty, and unfilled orders are not necessarily an indication of future business, the Company’s unfilled U.S. and Canadian manufacturing orders for homes at September 28, 2019 totaled $172.0 million compared to $252.4 million at September 29, 2018. The reduction in backlog is driven by a decrease in order rates from retailers. The order rates are based on manufacturers’ backlogs and delivery times which are shorter, generally, than the same time last year. In addition, backlog for Canadian operations was lower in the current period due to continued softness in the western Canada housing markets.

The Company’s primary sources of liquidity are cash flows from operations, existing cash balances and borrowings under available credit facilities. The Company has $39.4 million of unused borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility. Cash balances and cash flow from operations for the next year are expected to be adequate to fund capital expenditures. The level of cash availability is projected to be in excess of cash needed to operate the business for the next year. In the event operating cash flow is inadequate and one or more capital resources were to become unavailable, the Company would revise operating strategies accordingly.

Cash provided by operating activities was $52.2 million during the six months ended September 28, 2019 compared to $29.0 million during the six months ended September 29, 2018. Cash was generated by operating income (before non-cash charges) from higher sales and operating margins compared to the prior year. Additionally, there were no transaction expenses incurred for the Skyline acquisition or equity offering costs in the first half of fiscal 2020 compared to $7.5 million in the same period of the prior year, which contributed to the positive increase in cash provided by operating activities compared to the prior period.    �� 

Cash used in investing activities was $9.4 million for the six months ended September 28, 2019 which was related to capital expenditures. The expenditures for capital items are part of the Company’s focus on efficiency and safety initiatives as well as the expansion of production capacity with the investment in the new Leesville, Louisiana manufacturing facility. Cash provided by investing activities was $5.2 million during the six months ended September 29, 2018 as a result of cash acquired in the Exchange of $9.7 million, offset by capital expenditures of $4.7 million.

Cash used in financing activities was $14.8 million for the six months ended September 28, 2019, primarily related to the $10.0 million repayment on the revolving credit facility and $2.8 million, net repayment on the floor plan payable balance. Cash used in financing activities for the six months ended September 29, 2018 was $67.9 million, primarily as a result of distributions to Champion Holdings’ members of $65.3 million prior to completion of the Exchange and $2.0 million of additional payments made for deferred financing fees. The Company also borrowed $46.9 million under the revolving credit agreement during the six months ended September 29, 2018 and utilized the proceeds to repay term loans.
