“Manufactured housing is most efficient with just-in-time inventory which is how we are operating today. During the first half of the year, we replenished our inventory, which will allow us to further increase occupancy, revenue and sales income in the second half of the year. We currently have 315 homes on site that are ready for occupancy or are being set up and another 140 homes expected to be delivered over the next few weeks.

“We have positioned the company with a strong balance sheet so that we can continue to invest in new homes, capital improvements and the expansion of our communities, which will enhance the long-term value of our portfolio and ultimately increase our earnings per share. Additionally, we are prepared to acquire new communities when accretive investment opportunities become available.”
