Legacy Housing Corporation Reports Record 2018 Results

April 8, 2019

BEDFORD, Texas, April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Housing Corporation (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LEGH) today announced record revenues and net income for the full year of 2018.  

2018 Fiscal Year Results

  • Gross revenue for the year ended December 31, 2018 rose to an all-time high of $161.8 million, representing a 26% increase over the $128.7 million recorded for the year ended December 31, 2017. This achievement was primarily due to an increase in both the number and the price of our homes sold. 
  • Our company-owned store sales totaling $10.4 million in 2017 climbed 27% to $13.2 million in 2018.  We opened three new retail stores in December 2018, two in Georgia and one in Texas.
  • Our consumer loan portfolio’s outstanding principal balance grew by $10.5 million in 2018 to $97 million, net of deferred financing fees and allowance for loan loss and our mobile home park loan portfolio’s outstanding principal balance grew by $8.4 million in 2018 to $58 million.
  • Income before taxes for the year ended December 31, 2018 increased 16% to $30.6 million versus $26.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.
  • Income tax expense for 2018 was $9.1 million, compared to only $124,000 in the prior year due to a change in the organizational structure of our company from a partnership in 2017 to a corporation in 2018 to accommodate our initial public offering. On a pro forma basis, our tax expense for 2017 would have been approximately $9.4 million.
  • Net income was $21.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $26.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. However, on a pro forma basis after taking into account the additional tax expense associated with converting from a partnership to a corporation as noted above, our pro forma net income in 2017 was $16.9 million assuming the company had been a corporation as of the beginning of 2017. On a pro-forma basis, our net income increased 27% from 2017 to 2018.
  • To cap off the year, we completed our initial public offering of common stock on December 18, 2018 and, on January 16, 2019, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full. In total, we sold 4,600,000 shares of our common stock for gross proceeds of $55,200,000.

Curtis D. Hodgson, Executive Chairman of the Board, commented on the company’s success, saying, “We are pleased that 2018 was a record revenue year in Legacy Housing’s 15-year history, a feat resulting from our improved income from operations, healthy expansion of our financing activities, and growth in product sales.” He went on to point out that, “Despite some industry-wide softening of sales at the end of the year in a couple of our key markets, mainly Texas and Louisiana, given our progress to date, we remain optimistic about the immediate future of our industry in 2019 and beyond. We think we are uniquely positioned to grow our business in the coming years in light of the vertical integration of our business, the financing options we offer, and the quality and pricing of the products we build and sell.”
