Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

Some of the above representatives have been recipients of MHI PAC contributions. Yet despite years of having people collecting MHI connected donations, manufactured housing has remained stuck in low gear on Capitol Hill. If photo and video ops, or mentions of manufactured housing were gold, perhaps MHI would have bragging rights. But given that MHI has failed at achieving their own stated goals (see examples to illustrate that claim), their razzle dazzle is being revealed for precisely what it is. A show. Which begs the question, what is the purpose of MHI’s theatrics?

The apparent answer is this.  While the distractions, paltering, projecting or head fakes are occurring, MHI engages in giving apparent cover for MHI’s dominating brands to consolidate the industry. MHI’s antitrust and several of their other statements appear to be contradicted by actual behavior including the formal statements of several of their corporate leaders. Examples of that are linked. MHI’s attorneys and leadership will be asked about these concerns and allegations.

A growing number of Democratic and Republican connected figures have called for antitrust action. Should Congress hold hearings, MHProNews editorially favors any such authentic and robust effort. They should include an inquiry into MHI’s arguably deceptive practices. See the related reports to learn more.

Ironically, Skyline Champion’s own investor pitch-deck provides ample evidence for manufactured housing industry underperformance. That same pitch-deck further provides evidence that Mergers and Acquisitions are a key part of their business model. What is there in such revelations that Birch and Williams miss? Bear in mind, that they are mere stand-ins who voluntarily raised their hands in defense of Berkshire and MHI firms like Skyline Champion.
