The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

Ocala, FL…December 19, 2019 – Today Nobility Homes, Inc. (OTCQX: NOBH) announced increased sales and earnings results for its fiscal year ended November 2, 2019. Sales for fiscal year 2019 were up 11% to $47.3 million as compared to $42.8 million recorded in fiscal year 2018. Income from operations, up 45% for fiscal year 2019, was $8.3 million versus $5.7 million in the same period a year ago. Net income after taxes was $8.8 million as compared to $5.0 million for the same period last year. In June 2019 the Company sold its former Pace retail sales center property located in Pace, Florida for total net proceeds of $1.1 million and in October 2019 the Company sold its interest in Walden Woods South for total net proceeds of $1.5 million. Diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2019 were $2.32 per share compared to $1.27 per share last year.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, sales were $11.8 million as compared to $12.8 million in the fourth quarter of last fiscal year. Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2019 was up 6% to $2.1 million versus $2.0 million in the same period last year. Net income after taxes was $2.9 million versus last year’s results of $1.6 million. Diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter were $0.79 per share versus earnings of $0.40 per share last year.

Nobility’s financial position during fiscal year 2019 remained very strong with cash and cash equivalents, short term investments and certificates of deposit of $33.2 million and no outstanding debt. Working capital is $38.1 million and our ratio of current assets to current liabilities is 5.2:1. Stockholders’ equity is $49.5 million and the book value per share of common stock increased to $13.50.

Terry Trexler, President, stated, “The demand for affordable manufactured housing in Florida continues to be good. According to the Florida Manufactured Housing Association, shipments in Florida for the period from November 2018 through October 2019 were up approximately 17% from the same period last year. Constrained consumer credit and the lack of lenders in our industry, partly as a result of an increase in government regulations, still affects our results by limiting many affordable manufactured housing buyers from purchasing homes

However, legislation may help improve this situation in the future.

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, 2019 the Company celebrated its 52nd anniversary in business specializing in the design and production of quality, affordable manufactured homes. With multiple retail sales centers and an insurance agency subsidiary, we are the only vertically integrated manufactured home company headquartered in Florida.
