Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results

Volume growth during the quarter was driven by continued strong demand and increased production levels. The ASP per U.S. home sold increased 30.7% to $87,800 due to price increases to offset inflation in materials, labor, and transportation costs.
The number of Canadian factory-built homes sold in the quarter decreased to 400 homes compared to 419 homes in the prior-year period due to the extra week in the fourth quarter of last year. Total backlog for Skyline Champion was $1.6 billion as of April 2, 2022, compared to $858.6 million as of April 3, 2021. Backlog growth was driven by strong order activity and higher average selling prices per home.

Gross profit margin was 29.9% of net sales, a 780 basis point expansion compared to 22.1% in the fourth quarter fiscal 2021.
