Terry Trexler, President, stated, "Sales and operations for the first quarter of 2010, were adversely impacted by our country's severe economic uncertainty and the reduced manufactured housing shipments in Florida, plus the overall decline in Florida and the nation's housing market. Industry shipments in Florida for calendar year 2009 were down approximately 45% from the same period last year. Lack of retail and wholesale financing, increasing unemployment and home foreclosures, slow sales of existing site-built homes, very low consumer confidence and a poor economic outlook for the U.S. economy are just a few of the challenges our country, our industry, and the Company faced.
Management understands that during these very challenging economic times, maintaining the Company's strong financial position is vital for future growth and success. Because of deteriorating business conditions and the lack of any clarity that today's economic challenges will improve significantly, the Company will continue to evaluate Prestige's fifteen retail model centers in Florida, along with all expenses within the Company and react in a manner consistent with maintaining our financial position.Although the overall housing picture, financial market and economy have declined significantly this past year and the immediate outlook for the manufactured housing industry in Florida and the nation is uncertain, the long-term demographic trends still favor future growth in the Florida market area we serve. Job formation, immigration growth and migration trends, plus consumers returning to more affordable housing should favor Florida. Management remains convinced that our specific geographic market is one of the best long-term growth areas in the country and, because of the financial operating leverage inherent in the Company, we expect to out-perform the industry. For fiscal 2010, the country must experience a better economy with less uncertainty, improved sales in the existing home market, declining unemployment, continued low interest rates, improving credit markets, increased consumer confidence and more retail financing for the demand of our affordable homes to improve. The Company invested as a limited partner in two new Florida retirement manufactured home communities in fiscal year 2008. Although these investments will report non-cash losses in the initial fill-up stage, management believes that the new attractive and affordable manufactured home communities for senior citizens will be a growth area for Florida in the future." Nobility Homes, Inc. has specialized for 42 years in the design and production of quality, affordable manufactured homes at its plant located in central Florida. With fifteen Company retail sales centers, a finance company joint venture, an insurance subsidiary, and an investment in two new affordable retirement manufactured home communities, Nobility is the only vertically integrated manufactured home company headquartered in Florida.
