Nobility Homes, Inc. Announces Sales and Earnings for Its Second Quarter 2022


OCALA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 17, 2022 / Today Nobility Homes, Inc. (OTCQX:NOBH) announced sales and earnings for its second quarter ended May 7, 2022. Sales for the second quarter of 2022 was $10.6 million as compared to $14.7 million recorded in the second quarter of 2021. Income from operations for the second quarter of 2022 was $1.6 million versus $2.1 million in the same period a year ago. Net income after taxes was $1.5 million as compared to $1.7 million for the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2022 were $0.42 per share compared to $0.47 per share last year.

For the first six months of fiscal 2022 sales were $21.5 million as compared to $23.8 million for the first six months of 2021. Income from operations was $3.0 million versus $3.3 million last year. Net income after taxes was $2.6 million compared to $2.8 million last year. Diluted earnings per share were $0.74 per share compared to $0.77 per share last year.

Nobility's financial position during the second quarter 2022 remains very strong with cash and cash equivalents and short term investments of $27.1 million and no outstanding debt. Working capital is $29.6 million and our ratio of current assets to current liabilities is 2.7:1. Stockholders' equity is $43.3 million and the book value per share of common stock was $12.83.

Terry Trexler, President, stated, "The demand for affordable manufactured housing in Florida and the U.S. continues to improve. According to the Florida Manufactured Housing Association, shipments for the industry in Florida for the period from November 2021 through April 2022 were up approximately 23% from the same period last year. Our sales and earnings continue to be affected as we continue to experience the negative impact of limitations being placed on certain key production materials from suppliers, the delay or lack of key components from vendors as well as back orders, delayed shipments, price increases and labor shortages. This has caused delays in completion of the homes at the manufacturing facility and the set up process of retail homes in the field. We expect that these challenges will continue for the remainder of fiscal year 2022 and potentially beyond until the industry supply chain normalizes.

Maintaining our strong financial position is vital for future growth and success. Because of very challenging business conditions during economic recessions in our market area, management will continue to evaluate all expenses and react in a manner consistent with maintaining our strong financial position, while exploring opportunities to expand our distribution and manufacturing operations.

Our many years of experience in the Florida market, combined with home buyers' increased need for more affordable housing, should serve the Company well in the coming years. Management remains convinced that our specific geographic market is one of the best long-term growth areas in the country."

On June 5, 2022 the Company celebrated its 55th anniversary in business specializing in the design and production of quality, affordable manufactured homes. With multiple retail sales centers in Florida for over 31 years and an insurance agency subsidiary, we are the only vertically integrated manufactured home company headquartered in Florida.
