Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On February 19, 2021, the employment of Daniel L. Urness, Executive Vice-President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer with Cavco Industries, Inc. (the "Company") was mutually concluded. As previously disclosed by the Company in September 2020, Mr. Urness received a Wells Notice from the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to its pending investigation. Mr. Urness had been on leave since October 2020. The decision to separate was driven by Mr. Urness' ongoing need to focus on addressing the Wells Notice coupled with the Company’s need for an active Chief Financial Officer.

Consistent with Mr. Urness' Employment Agreement dated April 1, 2019, the Separation Agreement provides for: (i) a cash severance payment of $812,531; (ii) accelerated stock option award vesting; (iii) a pro-rata portion of unvested performance-based share awards with vesting to be determined based on actual performance as of the end of the applicable performance period; (iv) the payment of certain COBRA premiums; (v) certain confidentiality, non-solicitation, non-competition and cooperation provisions; and (vi) a Waiver and General Release of Claims.

Paul Bigbee, the Company's Chief Accounting Officer, will continue to act as the Company’s Principal Financial Officer and Principal Accounting Officer.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
