Nobility Homes, Inc. Sales and Earnings for its Fiscal Year 2022 Report, Result$ Best Inflation – Net After Taxes Up 34%, More Fact$; DeSantis ESG and NOBH; plus MHVille Stocks, Market Updates


According to information created by the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), which used to be available publicly but no longer is, Nobility Homes Inc is not an MHI member. That factoid may shed light on why independent producer Nobility Homes is outperforming so many other manufactured housing industry independents. As Nobility Homes (NOBH) also states in their press releases, they are a Florida based firm. That is one of several reasons that MHProNews in Part II of today’s report shines a light on Gov. Ron DeSantis (FL-R), rumored to be a GOP 2024 contender for that party’s presidential nomination, said in a statement that may prove to benefit Nobility Homes. Against that brief preface, Part I of today’s report is the media release via Accesswire and Yahoo are the facts and statements provided by Ocala, FL based Nobility Homes, Inc. (OTCQX:NOBH). Highlighting in what follows is added by MHProNews, but the text is as shown in their media release.


Part I. Nobility Fiscal 2022 Results

QuoteMarksLeftSideToday Nobility Homes, Inc. (OTCQX:NOBH) announced sales and earnings results for its fiscal year ended November 5, 2022. Sales for fiscal year 2022 increased 14% to $51.5 million as compared to $45.1 million recorded in fiscal year 2021. Income from operations for fiscal year 2022 increased 37% to $8.4 million versus $6.1 million in the same period a year ago. Net income after taxes increased 34% to $7.2 million as compared to $5.4 million for the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2022 were $2.10 per share compared to $1.50 per share last year.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, sales increased 71% to $16.2 million as compared to $9.5 million in the fourth quarter of last fiscal year. Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2022 increased 93% to $3.2 million versus $1.7 million in the same period last year. Net income after taxes increased 76% to $2.7 million versus last year’s results of $1.6 million. Diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter were $0.81 per share versus earnings of $0.44 per share last year.

Nobility’s financial position during fiscal year 2022 remained very strong with cash and cash equivalents, certificates of deposit and short-term investments of $21.1 million and no outstanding debt. Working capital is $33.7 million and our ratio of current assets to current liabilities is 3.3:1. Stockholders’ equity is $47.9 million and the book value per share of common stock increased to $14.22.

Terry Trexler, President, stated, “The demand for affordable manufactured housing in Florida and the U.S. is starting to reflect the increased interest rate environment by the Federal Reserve. Although net sales increased during the twelve months ended November 5, 2022 as compared to the same period last year, we continued 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. These supply chain issues have caused delays in the completion of the homes at the manufacturing facility and the set-up process of retail homes in the field, resulting in decreased net sales due to our inability to timely deliver and setup homes to customers. We expect that these challenges will continue for the first six months of fiscal year 2023 or until the industry supply chain normalizes. According to the Florida Manufactured Housing Association, shipments for the industry in Florida for the period from November 2021 through October 2022 were up approximately 23% from the same period last year.

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 and modular homes. With multiple retail sales centers in Florida for over 32 years and an insurance agency subsidiary, we are the only vertically integrated manufactured home company headquartered in Florida.


Certain statements in this report are unaudited or forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Although Nobility believes that the amounts and expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, there are risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the potential adverse impact on our business caused by the COVID-19 pandemic or other health pandemics, competitive pricing pressures at both the wholesale and retail levels, inflation, increasing material costs (including forest based products) or availability of materials due to potential supply chain interruptions (such as current inflation with forest products and supply issues with vinyl siding and PVC piping), changes in market demand, changes in interest rates, availability of financing for retail and wholesale purchasers, consumer confidence, adverse weather conditions that reduce sales at retail centers, the risk of manufacturing plant shutdowns due to storms or other factors, the impact of marketing and cost-management programs, reliance on the Florida economy, impact of labor shortage, impact of materials shortage, increasing labor cost, cyclical nature of the manufactured housing industry, impact of rising fuel costs, catastrophic events impacting insurance costs, availability of insurance coverage for various risks to Nobility, market demographics, management’s ability to attract and retain executive officers and key personnel, increased global tensions, market disruptions resulting from terrorist or other attack, any armed conflict involving the United States and the impact of inflation.

Part II. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

This part of the Daily Business News on MHProNews report will be comprised of three components. The first is more manufactured housing and Nobility Homes, specific. The second segment (Part II b) is about recent remarks by Governor Ron DeSantis, which may or may not reflect the views of Nobility’s management, but which are part of the business milieu that Nobility and thousands of other Florida businesses are operating in. Part II c will provide a broader ESG content, which will include manufactured housing connected firms.

Part II a: Virtually all of manufactured housing connected equities lost ground when their year-end stock value (gain or loss) are compared to the rate of inflation in 2022.

That said, Nobility’s earnings and percentage of increase – per their details posted in their latest press release – was as shown above. In a challenging post-COVID, post-inflationary environment, Nobility appears to outperform several manufactured housing firms, some of which have a larger market cap.




Nobility was an early leader in vertical integration in manufactured housing among independent producers of HUD Code manufactured homes. That pattern is one that several independents have followed in recent years, perhaps due in part to the success that Nobility has enjoyed.  Snapshots of prior quarterly results are found in the reports linked below. A pattern of steady growth and profitability become obvious.

Manufactured housing has dipped in the past 3 months, as was reported in the data from the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), shown below.

Those who are concerned about what direction the downturn may go may take comfort in Trexler’s remark above:  “We expect that these challenges will continue for the first six months of fiscal year 2023 or until the industry supply chain normalizes.” The last downturn that hit HUD Code manufactured homes ran for 2½ years. By accident and/or design, the prior downturn coincided with the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) roll out of their so-called “new class of manufactured housing” which they later rebranded as CrossMod© homes.  It seems when MHI, and their dominating brands pushes CrossMods, the industry dips. MHI admitted the failure of that product, as the reports linked below explored.

Several of the risk factors cited by Nobility in their forward-looking statements are on issues that MHProNews has been reporting for some time. For example, on the international front, is the report linked below.

Note that in these videos, Nobility is displaying their models without traditional vinyl skirting, but are instead matching the siding and frame it to be the foundation enclosure.



It is sometimes seemingly little touches like that which gives a home a residential appeal that is only a fraction of the cost of the Clayton backed MHI CrossMods. An MHI member told MHProNews that having ‘run the numbers, they determined that even using land-home lending at a lower interest rate, that CrossMods are so much more costly, ‘they do not pencil out.’

Nobility is one of several independent producers that either produce residential style homes and/or produce a mix of tape and texture as well as VOG style manufactured housing interiors.  For additional insights and information, see the linked reports and the videos shown.




Part II b.  Nobility in “Ron DeSantis” Led Florida

Florida is often seen as a ‘beacon of freedom’ and inspiration by those on the political right.  A significant portion of that is tied to policies championed by popular and recently re-elected Governor Ron DeSantis (FL-R). DeSantis, per recent reports, is rumored to be preparing for entry into the 2024 Republican presidential primary. If so, it is said that this might occur later in the summer or in September. Even on the political left, Florida and DeSantis are targets of barbs and open attacks by personalities such as California Gov. Gavin Newsome (CA-D). DeSantis is one of the top two contenders for the GOP presidential nomination, per public polling, vying with Floridian deposed President Donald J. Trump. Let’s note that at this time, there is no known public stance made by Nobility on any political topic.  So, this analysis is not about a corporate stance, nor about the stance of their management. But it does relate to part of their forward-looking statements, which make it clear that they have tied themselves to Florida and its business environment.

In a 2.13.2022 article published by Newsmax, which also has offices in Florda, the right-leaning news organization remarked on the tweet above and reported the following.

Gov. DeSantis: Florida Won’t Go Down ‘ESG’…Road

QuoteMarksLeftSideFlorida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis said Monday he is proposing legislation to end financial institutions in the state using “environmental, social, and governance” (ESG) scores to restrict investment decisions dealing with public funds and accounts.

“Our legislative proposal will ensure that financial institutions will no longer be able to discriminate against hard-working Floridians and small businesses on the basis of political, religious or social beliefs,” DeSantis tweeted Monday, outlining the legislative proposal.

The proposal would stop financial institutions from “discriminating against customers for their religious, political, or social beliefs,” such as owning firearms, increasing border security, or increasing the nation’s energy independence.

It also bans financial sector businesses from using “ESG scores” in their banking and lending practices to prevent Floridians from getting loans, lines of credit, or opening bank accounts.

In addition, the proposal would not allow investment decisions based on ESG at the state and municipal levels to ensure the best growth in investments that fund retirees and taxpayers, as well as eliminates ESG considerations when issuing bonds.

Investopedia defines ESG as “a set of standards for a company’s behavior used by socially conscious investors to screen potential investments” to make companies act more responsibly when it comes to protecting the environment, conducting themselves better with employees, suppliers and customers, and being more responsible and transparent in the way it governs itself.

“It has devolved into a mechanism to inject political ideology into investment decisions, corporate governance, and really, just the everyday economy,” DeSantis said at a press conference announcing the initiative. “That is not ultimately something that is going to work out well for us here in Florida, or in the United States of America.”


The above is per the Newsmax website, in a report linked here. Skipping ahead, that report concluded as follows.


QuoteMarksLeftSideHe said, in addition to putting the U.S. in a bad position depending on others for energy, it ends up raising the cost of all goods which need that energy to produce.

“One of the major things facing our country that we have to do is recapture all the supply chains and bring them out of China,” he said. “[During COVID] almost every single thing that people needed was produced in China. [ESG] really helps China. It gives them even a bigger competitive advantage than they already have.” ##


Those comments align with reporting by MHProNews on the various challenges and threats posed by doing business with China, as in the example linked here

With respect to ESG investing, firms like giant Blackrock are being pressed by several states to stop their influence and pressure on businesses they are invested in to follow ESG guidelines. Thus, the connection MHProNews editorially sees between FL based Nobility and the ESG issue. 


Riley Moore-Blackrock & Woke Capitalism ‘Economic Extortion’ ‘Could Destroy U.S. Free Market Capitalism’ May ‘Violate Fiduciary Duty to Shareholders, Antitrust Laws;’ Plus MHVille Stocks Update


Based upon the evidence from ‘red states’ response to BlackRock, Nobility’s public ‘politically neutral’ posture and lack of mention in their media release of ESG policies could prove to be of benefit to the firm for the foreseeable future.  As Seeking Alpha previously noted in their headline remark, Nobility has operated profitably and with a large margin of safety. Indeed, its 55-year history ought to speak for itself.

MHProNews, the demonstrable #1 source for manufactured housing industry trade information on Nobility Homes and numerous other MHVille brands, will continue to monitor and periodically report on Nobility (NOBH) as is deemed warranted. ##
