<< back to list of filings

Form 10-Q

The SEC form 10-Q is a comprehensive report of a company's performance that must be submitted quarterly by all public companies to the Securities and Exchange Commission. In the 10-Q, firms are required to disclose relevant information regarding their financial position. The form must be submitted on time, and the information should be available to all interested parties.

The 10-Q is due 35 days (it used to be 45 days) after each of the first three fiscal quarters. There is no filing after the fourth quarter because that is when the 10-K is filed.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

Note 1 Basis of Presentation and Accounting Policies

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended May 6, 2017 have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

The unaudited financial information included in this report includes all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to reflect a fair statement of the results for the interim periods. The results of operations for the three and six months ended May 6, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results of the full fiscal year.

The condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 5, 2016.

Recently Issued Accounting PronouncementsIn February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, “Leases” (ASU 2016-02). The core principle of ASU 2016-02 is that an entity should recognize on its balance sheet assets and liabilities arising from a lease. In accordance with that principle, ASU 2016-02 requires that a lessee recognize a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying leased asset for the lease term. The recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee will depend on the lease classification as finance or operating lease. This new accounting guidance is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 (i.e., calendar years beginning on January 1, 2019), including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company believes the implementation of this guidance will have no material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17 “Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes” (ASU 2015-17). ASU 2015-17 simplifies the presentation of deferred income taxes by eliminating the separate classification of deferred income tax liabilities and assets into current and noncurrent amounts in the consolidated balance sheet statement of financial position. The amendments in the update require that all deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in the consolidated balance sheet. The amendments in this update are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods therein and may be applied either prospectively or retrospectively to all periods presented. Early adoption is permitted. The Company has not adopted ASU 2015-17 and believes the implementation of this guidance will have no material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, “Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory”. The amendments require an entity to measure in scope inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. Subsequent measurement is unchanged for inventory measured using LIFO or the retail inventory method. The amendments do not apply to inventory that is measured using last-in, first-out (LIFO) or the retail inventory method. The amendments apply to all

Table of Contents

other inventory, which includes inventory that is measured using first-in, first-out (FIFO) or average cost. The amendments in this update are effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company does not expect this amendment to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”, which requires an entity to recognize revenue from the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance addresses, in particular, contracts with more than one performance obligation, as well as the accounting for some costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer; and provides for additional disclosures with respect to revenues and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14 which deferred the effective date of ASU 2014-09 for all entities by one year. With respect to public entities, this update is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2017 and early adoption is permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company believes the implementation of this guidance will have no material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

Note 2 Inventories

New home inventory is carried at the lower of cost or market value. The cost of finished home inventories determined on the specific identification method is removed from inventories and recorded as a component of cost of sales at the time revenue is recognized. Under the specific identification method, if finished home inventory can be sold for a profit there is no basis to write down the inventory below the lower of cost or fair market value.

The Company acquired certain repossessed pre-owned inventory (Buy Back Inventory) in 2011 as part of an Amendment of the Finance Revenue Sharing Agreement (FRSA) agreement with 21st Mortgage Corporation. This inventory is valued at the Company’s cost to acquire determined on the specific identification method, plus refurbishment costs (any item on the home that needs to be repaired or replaced) incurred to date to bring the inventory to a more saleable state. The Buy Back inventory amount is reduced where necessary on a unit specific basis by a valuation reserve which management believes results in inventory being valued at market.

Other pre-owned homes are acquired (Repossessions Inventory) as a convenience to the Company’s joint venture partner, 21st Mortgage Corporation. This inventory has been repossessed by 21st Mortgage Corporation or through mortgage foreclosure. The Company acquired this inventory at the amount of the uncollected balance of the financing at the time of the foreclosure/repossessions by 21st Mortgage Corporation. The Company records this inventory at cost determined on the specific identification method. All of the refurbishment costs are paid by 21st Mortgage Corporation. This arrangement assists 21st Mortgage Corporation with liquidation of their repossessed inventory. The timing of these repurchases by the Company is unpredictable as it is based on the repossessions 21st Mortgage Corporation incurs in the portfolio. When the home is sold, the Company retains the cost of the home, an interest factor on the cost of the home and a sales commission for the sale of the home, from the sales proceeds. Any additional proceeds are paid to 21st Mortgage. Any shortfall from the proceeds to cover these amounts is paid by 21st Mortgage to the Company. As the Company has no risk of loss on the sale, there is no valuation allowance necessary for this inventory.

Pre-owned homes are also taken as trade-ins on new home sales (Trade-in Inventory). This inventory is recorded at estimated actual wholesale value which is generally lower then market value, determined on the specific identification method, plus refurbishment costs incurred to date to bring the inventory to a more saleable state. The Trade-in inventory amount is reduced where necessary on a unit specific basis by a valuation reserve which management believes results in inventory being valued at market.

Note 4 Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents, accounts and notes receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximates fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments.

The Company accounts for the fair value of financial investments in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) No. 820 “Fair Value Measurements” (ASC 820).

Table of Contents

ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e. exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820 requires disclosures that categorize assets and liabilities measured at fair value into one of three different levels depending on the assumptions (i.e. inputs) used in the valuation. Financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input significant to the fair value measurement. The ASC 820 fair value hierarchy is defined as follows:

 

    Level 1 - Valuations are based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

    Level 2 - Valuations are based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, or quoted prices in markets that are not active for which significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly.

 

    Level 3 - Valuations are based on prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement. Inputs reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability at the measurement date.

The following tables represent the Company’s financial assets and liabilities which are carried at fair value.

The Company’s limited warranty covers substantial defects in material or workmanship in specified components of the home including structural elements, plumbing systems, electrical systems, and heating and cooling systems which are supplied by the Company that may occur under normal use and service during a period of twelve (12) months from the date of delivery to the original homeowner, and applies to the original homeowner or any subsequent homeowner to whom this product is transferred during the duration of this twelve (12) month period.

The Company tracks the warranty claims per home. Based on the history of the warranty claims, the Company has determined that a majority of warranty claims usually occur within the first three months after the home is sold. The Company determines its warranty accrual using the last three months of home sales. Accrued warranty costs are included in accrued expenses in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Note 9 Commitments and Contingent Liabilities

Majestic 21 – On May 20, 2009, the Company became a 50% guarantor on a $5 million note payable entered into by Majestic 21, a joint venture in which the Company owns a 50% interest. This guarantee was a requirement of the bank that provided the $5 million loan to Majestic 21. The $5 million guarantee of Majestic 21’s debt is for the life of the note which matures on the earlier of May 31, 2019 or when the principal balance is less than $750,000. The amount of the guarantee declines with the amortization and repayment of the loan. As collateral for the loan, 21st Mortgage Corporation (our joint venture partner) has granted the lender a security interest in a pool of loans encumbering homes sold by Prestige Homes Centers, Inc. If the pool of loans securing this note should decrease in value so that the notes outstanding principal balance is in excess of 80% of the principal balance of the pool of loans, then Majestic 21 would have to pay down the note’s principal balance to an amount that is no more than 80% of the principal balance of the pool of loans. The Company and 21st Mortgage Corporation are obligated jointly to contribute the amount necessary to bring the loan balance back down to 80% of the collateral provided. We do not anticipate any required contributions as the pool of loans securing the note have historically been in excess of 100% of the collateral value. As of May 6, 2017, the outstanding principal balance of the note was $725,985 and the amount of collateral held by our joint venture partner for the Majestic 21 note payable was $1,657,167. Based upon management’s analysis, the fair value of the guarantee is not material and as a result, no liability for the guarantee has been recorded in the accompanying balance sheets of the Company.

Note 10 Cash Dividend

On March 10, 2017 the Board of Directors declared a one-time cash dividend of $.15 per common share to stockholders of record as of March 27, 2017. The cash dividend was paid from our cash reserves on April 17, 2017 in the amount of $600,726.

Sales to two publicly traded REITs and other companies which own multiple retirement communities in our market area accounted for approximately 11% and 22% of our sales for the first six months ended May 6, 2017 and April 30, 2016, respectively. Accounts receivable due from these customers were approximately $863,664 at May 6, 2017.

The demand for affordable manufactured housing in Florida and the U.S. continues to improve. According to the Florida Manufactured Housing Association, shipments in Florida for the period from February through April 2017 were up approximately 6% from the same period last year. Our sales and earnings continue to be affected by the lack of available retail and wholesale financing. Constrained consumer credit and the lack of lenders in the industry, partly as a result of an increase in government regulations, have limited many manufactured housing buyers from purchasing affordable manufactured homes.

We believe maintaining our strong financial position is vital for future growth and success. Because of the recent years of very challenging business conditions in our market area, management continues 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.

The Company has specialized for over 50 years in the design and production of quality, affordable manufactured homes at its plant located in central Florida. With multiple retail sales centers, an insurance agency subsidiary, and an investment in a retirement manufactured home community, we are the only vertically integrated manufactured home company headquartered in Florida.

Insurance agent commission revenues in the second quarter of 2017 were $73,683 compared to $65,037 in the second quarter of 2016. Total insurance agent commission revenues for the first six months of 2017 were $141,202 compared to $116,431 for the first six months of 2016. The insurance agent commissions resulted from new policies and renewals generated. The Company establishes appropriate reserves for policy cancellations based on numerous factors, including past transaction history with customers, historical experience and other information, which is periodically evaluated and adjusted as deemed necessary. In the opinion of management, no reserve was deemed necessary for policy cancellations at May 6, 2017 and November 5, 2016.

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 24% in second quarters of 2017 and 2016 as well as for the first six months of 2017 and 2016. The gross profit in second quarter of 2017 was $2,398,884 compared to $1,965,568 in the second quarter of 2016 and was $4,422,948 for the first six months of 2017 compared to $3,722,003 for the first six months of 2016. The gross profit is dependent on the sales mix of wholesale and retail homes and number of pre-owned homes sold. The increase in gross profit is primarily due to the increase in the overall number of homes sold.

Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of net sales was 11% in second quarter of 2017 compared to 12% in the second quarter of 2016 and was 11% for the first six months of 2017 compared to 12% for the first six months of 2016. Selling, general and administrative expenses in second quarter of 2017 was $1,122,286 compared to $1,011,699 in the second quarter of 2016 and was $2,089,873 for the first six months of 2017 compared to $1,792,393 for the first six months of 2016. The dollar increase in expenses resulted from the increase in compensation expenses directly related to our increased sales.

We earned interest of $31,357 for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $22,044 for the second quarter of 2016. For the first six months of 2017, interest earned was $71,804 compared to $34,091 in the first six months of 2016. The increase is primarily due to the accrued interest from the note receivable acquired in the sale of the investment in retirement community.

Our earnings from Majestic 21 in the second quarter of 2017 were $28,123 compared to $35,702, for the second quarter of 2016. Our earnings from Majestic 21 for the first six months of 2017 were $56,721 compared to $69,110 for the first six months of 2016. The earnings from Majestic 21 represent the allocation of profit and losses which are owned 50% by 21st Mortgage and 50% by the Company.

We received a $225,956 payment under an escrow arrangement related to the finance revenue sharing agreement between 21st Mortgage Corporation and the Company in the second quarter of 2017.

The Company recorded an income tax expense in the amount of $464,416 in the second quarter of 2017 as compared to $2,128,376 in second quarter 2016. Income tax expense for the six months of 2017 was $891,386 compared to $2,480,940 for the second quarter of 2016.

We reported net income of $1,107,509 for the second quarter of 2017 or $0.28 per share, compared to $3,671,881 or $0.91 per share, for the second quarter of 2016. For the first six months of 2017 net income was $1,810,832 or $0.45 per share, compared to $4,350,282 or $1.08 per share, in the first six months of 2016.

We own the entire inventory for our Prestige retail sales centers which includes new, pre-owned and repossessed or foreclosed homes and do not incur any third party floor plan financing expenses. The Company has no material commitments for capital expenditures.

On March 10, 2017 the Board of Directors declared a one-time cash dividend of $.15 per common share to stockholders of record as of March 27, 2017. The cash dividend was paid from our cash reserves on April 17, 2017 in the amount of $600,726.

We view our liquidity as our total cash and short term investments. We currently have no line of credit facility and we do not believe that such a facility is currently necessary for our operations. We have no debt. We also have approximately $3 million of cash surrender value of life insurance which we could access as an additional source of liquidity though we have not currently viewed this to be necessary. As of May 6, 2017, the Company continued to report a strong balance sheet which included total assets of approximately $52 million and stockholders’ equity of approximately $46 million.
