3.       Earnings Per Share

         Effective for the quarter ended January 31, 1998, the Company adopted
         Statement on Financial Accounting Standards No. 128, Earnings Per Share
         (SFAS 128). SFAS 128 simplifies the standards for computing earnings
         per share by replacing the presentation of primary earnings per share
         with a presentation of basic earnings per share. Basic earnings per
         share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted-average
         number of shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is calculated
         by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of shares
         outstanding, adjusted for dilutive potential common shares. The
         following reconciliation details the numerators and denominators used
         to calculate basic and diluted earnings per share for the respective
         periods:

4.       Stock Split

         On January 6, 1998, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a
         three-for-two stock split in the form of a 50% stock dividend payable
         February 20, 1998 to stockholders of record on January 30, 1998. This
         resulted in the issuance of 1,485,297 additional shares of common
         stock. Share and per share data for all periods presented herein have
         been adjusted to give effect to the 50% stock split.


5.       Stock Dividend

         On December 15, 1998, the Company's Board of Directors declared a 10%
         stock dividend which was paid on February 19, 1999 to stockholders of
         record on January 15, 1999. This resulted in the issuance of 442,820
         additional shares of common stock. The dividend was charged to retained
         earnings in the amount of approximately $6.5 million, which was based
         upon the fair value of the Company's common stock. All references to
         weighted-average shares outstanding and per share amounts included
         herein reflect the 10% stock dividend and its retroactive effect.

               MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF
                       OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION

Results of Operations

         Net sales in the first quarter of 1999 were $10,107,000 as compared to
$10,606,000 for the first quarter of 1998. The decrease in sales for the first
three months of 1999 was primarily due to the additional stocking of $1.2 
million of new inventory homes for the Company's seven new retail sales centers 
that were added in the fourth quarter of 1998.

         Gross profit in the first quarter of 1999 as a percentage of net sales
was 27.6 percent compared to 25.5 percent for the same period last year. The
increase in gross profit in the first quarter of 1999 was primarily a result of
improvements in the gross margins at the retails sales centers, caused by
selling a mix of higher priced homes.

         Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of net
sales, was 16.9 percent in the first quarter of 1999 compared to 14.2 percent
for the same period last year. The increase in first quarter of 1999 selling,
general and administrative expenses as a percent of net sales was due to
increased overhead from the seven new retail sales centers added during the
fourth quarter of 1998.

         Other income for first quarter 1999 was $77,000 of which $52,000 was
from interest on short term investments and $22,000 was undistributed earnings
from the Company's financing joint venture, Nobility 21. This compares to 
$93,000 in the first quarter of fiscal year 1998, of which $64,000 was from 
short term interest and $26,000 was undistributed earnings from Nobility 21.

         As a result of the factors discussed above, net income for the first
quarter of 1999 was $718,000 or $.15 per share, compared to $800,000 or $.16 per
share in the first quarter of 1998. Earnings per share for the first quarter of
1998 has been restated to reflect a 10% stock dividend paid on February 19,
1999.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

     Cash and cash equivalents were $4,600,000 at January 31, 1999 compared to
$5,892,000 as of October 31, 1998. Working capital increased to $13,799,000 at
January 31, 1999 from $13,141,000 at October 31, 1998. Inventories increased to
$11,274,000 in the first quarter of 1999 from $10,391,000 at the fourth quarter
of 1998. The increase in inventory was due to the additional $1.2 million of
homes manufactured in the first quarter of 1999 which were used to stock the 
new retail sales centers added in the fourth quarter of 1998.

     The Company maintains a revolving credit agreement with a major bank 
providing for borrowings up to $4.0 million. A second revolving line of credit 
agreement with another bank provides for borrowings up to $1.5 million. These 
two agreements provide the Company with an additional $5.5 million of working
capital for use in connection with its overall operations. At January 30, 1999
and October 31, 1998, there were no amounts outstanding under either of these
agreements.

     Consistent with normal practice, the Company's operations are not expected 
to require significant capital expenditures during fiscal year 1999. Working
capital requirements for the home inventory for new and existing sales centers
will be met with internal sources.

                 OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION (Continued)

Forward Looking Statements

         Certain statements in this report are forward-looking statements within
the meaning of the federal securities laws. Although the Company believes that
the 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, competitive pricing pressures at both the
wholesale and retail levels, changes in market demand, adverse weather
conditions that reduce sales at retail centers, the risk of manufacturing plant
shutdowns due to storms or other factors, and the impact of marketing and
cost-management programs.

Year 2000 Issue

         Many existing computer programs use only two digits to identify a year
in the date field. As the century date change occurs, these programs may
recognize the year 2000 as 1900, or not at all. If not corrected, many computer
systems and applications could fail or create erroneous results by or at the
year 2000 (the "Year 2000 Issue").

         The Company has developed plans to address its possible exposures
related to the impact of the Year 2000 Issue on its operations. These plans were
implemented primarily with the use of internal resources. The Company has
assessed (i) the equipment in its manufacturing operations that contains
microprocessors or relies on software, and (ii) the Company's internal systems.
The Company has determined that its manufacturing equipment does not have a Year
2000 Issue.

         The Company's internal systems consist of its central operating and
accounting systems, which handles the majority of its business transactions. The
Company has completed an assessment of its central operating and accounting
systems which resulted in the identification of certain modifications necessary
to bring these systems into year 2000 compliance. These modifications have been
made, primarily through the purchase of updated hardware and updated
vendor-supplied software. Based on the results of initial testing with respect
to these systems, the Company does not anticipate that the Year 2000 Issue will
materially impact operations or operating results.

         Management believes that total pretax costs incurred to date in
connection with the Year 2000 Issue have not materially impacted the Company's
operating results and that future costs of compliance likewise will not be
material.

         The Company believes its planning efforts are adequate to address the
Year 2000 Issue and that its risk factors are primarily those that it cannot
directly control, including the readiness of its major suppliers, customers and
service providers. Failure on the part of these entities to timely remediate
their Year 2000 Issue could result in disruptions in the Company's supply of
materials, disruptions in its customers' ability to conduct business and
interruptions to the Company's daily operations. Management believes that its
exposure to third party risk may be minimized to some extent because it does not
rely significantly on any one supplier or customer. There can be no guarantee,
however, that the systems and operations relied on by such third parties will be
corrected on a timely basis and will not have a material adverse effect on the
Company.

               MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF
                 OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION (Continued)

         Due to the nature of the Company's manufacturing and retail operations,
including the fact that the materials used by the Company in its manufactured
homes are widely available, the Company does not currently have formal
contingency plans or a timetable for implementing them. The Company's suppliers
typically maintain a one-month supply of materials. Contingency plans will be
established, if they are deemed necessary, after the Company has adequately
assessed the impact on its operations should third parties fail to properly
remediate their computer systems. Contingency plans would include such items as
identifying alternative suppliers and increasing inventory levels prior to the
year 2000 to ensure availability of supplies for the Company's manufacturing and
retail operations.

                           REVOLVING CREDIT AGREEMENT


March 4, 1998

Mr. Terry E. Trexler, President
Nobility Homes, Inc.
3741 S. W. 7th ST
Ocala, FL   34478

Dear Mr. Trexler:

The following agreement is provided in an effort to clarify the terms,
conditions and covenants relative to the $2,500,000 Line of Credit ("Line"),
which was provided your organization by SunTrust Bank, North Central Florida. If
requested by Nobility Homes, Inc., SunTrust Bank will increase the line to
$4,000,000.00, provided however, that Nobility Homes, Inc. is not in default of
any loan covenants. Nobility Homes, Inc. agrees to execute all necessary
documents relative to increasing the line of credit. This agreement shall
supersede the previous agreement dated March 27, 1997. The Line is offered
subject to the following terms, conditions and covenants.

                                A. TERMS OF LINE

1.    Borrower:  Advances under the line shall be made to Nobility  Homes,  Inc.
      ("Borrower"), which shall be responsible for the repayment of the 
      advances.

2.    Amount of Line: The maximum amount of the Line shall be Two Million, Five
      Hundred Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($2,500,000.00).

3.    Purpose: Advances under the Line are to be used for general short-term
      working capital requirements which occur in the normal course of 
      Borrower's business.

4.    Term of Line: The Line shall be represented and evidenced by a promissory
      note or notes, payable on demand of the Bank. The Bank's obligation to 
      advance under this Line of Credit Commitment shall expire on demand and 
      shall be subject to the Borrower's continued banking relationship with the
      Bank, as well as the continued satisfactory financial condition of the 
      Borrower, in the opinion of the Bank.

5.    Interest Rate: Advances under the Line shall bear and accrue interest at a
      rate per annum which is defined as SunTrust Banks', Inc. Prime Rate minus 
      1/2% (loan rate today would be 8.00%). Interest shall be due and payable 
      monthly.  Rate basis is floating, with adjustments made the day of change.

5.1   Calculation of Interest: All interest under the Note or hereunder shall be
      calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days 
      elapsed in an interest period (actual/360 method), unless the Bank shall 
      otherwise elect.

6.    Advances: The sums contemplated to be advanced may be repaid and re-
      advanced pursuant to the terms hereof, so long as this agreement remains 
      in effect. The advances may be repaid in whole or in part at any time 
      without prepayment, premium, penalty, or fee whatsoever.

7.    Line of Credit Paydown: During the term of this commitment, the outstand-
      ings under the Line shall be paid down to a balance not to exceed One and 
      No/100 Dollars ($1.00) for thirty (30) consecutive days.

8.    Loan Security: The advances shall be extended on an unsecured basis; how-
      ever, the Borrower shall not, without the prior written consent of the 
      Bank, permit or suffer to exist any lien, charge, encumbrance, or security
      interest in or upon the Borrower's business assets, with the exception of 
      floor plan lines of credit occurring in the normal course of business, in 
      as much as they do not adversely impact the financial covenants detailed 
      in this agreement.

                     B. REQUIREMENTS AND CONDITIONS OF LINE

1.    Financial Information: Borrower shall maintain books and records in

           quarter, an income statement and a balance sheet prepared in

           year, prepared in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
           standards certified by independent certified public accountants of 
           recognized standing selected by the Borrower and satisfactory to the 
           Bank; and

      (c)  No Default Certificates. Together with each report required by Sub-

           chief financial officer that no Default or Event of Default then 
           exists or if a Default or Event of Default exists, the nature and 
           duration thereof and the Borrower's intention with respect thereto. 
           In addition, in the event of a default, the Borrower's independent 
           auditors (if applicable) shall include, within its audit report, a

           under the line, the Borrower shall deliver to the Bank a written 
           request for Advance signed by an authorized officer of the firm as 
           stated in the corporate resolutions.

      (c)  No Adverse Change. There shall have been no material adverse change 
           in the condition, financial or otherwise, of the Borrower or any 
           Subsidiary from such condition as it existed on the date of the most 
           recent financial statements of Borrower delivered prior to date 
           hereof.

                          C. COVENANTS OF THE BORROWER

The Borrower covenants and agrees that from the date hereof and until payment in
full of the Indebtedness and the formal termination of this Agreement, unless
the Bank shall otherwise consent in writing, the Borrower and each Subsidiary:

1.    Use of Loan Proceeds. Shall use the proceeds of the Loan only for the
      commercial purposes permitted herein or otherwise permitted by the Bank 
      and furnish the bank all evidence that it may reasonably require with 
      respect to such use.

2.    Insurance. Shall maintain such liability insurance, workers' compensation
      insurance, and casualty insurance as may be required by law, customary and
      usual for prudent businesses in its industry or as may be reasonably 
      required by the Bank.

3.    Payment of Taxes, Etc. Shall pay before delinquent all of its debts and 
      taxes except that the Bank shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to 
      nonpayment of taxes being actively contested in accordance with law 
      (provided that the Bank may require bonding or other assurances).

4.    Compliance; Hazardous Materials. Shall strictly comply with all laws,
      regulations, ordinances and other legal requirements, specifically includ-
      ing, without limitation, ERISA, all securities laws and all laws relating

      the Bank, neither the Borrower nor any Subsidiary shall engage in the

      compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

      (other than sales of obsolete or worn-out equipment and sales of Inventory
      in the ordinary course of business). Change in the principal ownership of 
      the Firm will cause the Line to become immediately due and payable.

7.    Financial Covenants. At all times, the Borrower shall be in compliance 
      with the following financial covenants on a consolidated basis:

      (a)  The tangible net worth of the Borrower shall not be less than 
           $5,500,000 at the end of any fiscal quarter;

      For purposes of this Agreement, the term "tangible net worth" shall be
      the net worth of an Entity according to generally accepted accounting
      principles less any write-up of assets subsequent to October 31, 1993;
      deferred assets other than prepaid insurance and prepaid taxes;
      patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, non-compete agreements,
      franchises and other intangibles; goodwill or other amounts
      representing the excess of the purchase price of assets or stock over
      the value assigned thereto on the books of such Entity; unamortized
      debt discount and expense; and any other amounts categorized as
      intangibles under generally accepted accounting principles.

      (b)  The ratio of current assets of the Borrower to current liabilities 
           shall not be less than 2.0:1 as at the end of the fiscal quarter;

      (c)  All financial terms used herein shall have the meanings assigned to 
           them under generally accepted accounting principles unless another 
           meaning shall be specified.

      Default along with any events of default as contained with the promissory 
      note:

      (a)  Any representation or warranty made by the Borrower or any other 
           party to any Loan Document (other than the Bank) herein or therein or
           in any certificate or report furnished in connection herewith or 
           therewith shall prove to have been untrue or incorrect in any 
           material respect when made; or

      (b)  There shall occur any default by the Borrower in the payment, when 
           due, of any principal of or interest on the Note, any amounts due 
           hereunder or any other Loan Document or any other Indebtedness (not 
           cured within the grace period provided in such Note or in the 
           document or instrument evidencing such Indebtedness);

      (c)  There shall occur any default by the Borrower or any other party to 
           any Loan Document (other than the Bank) in the performance of any 
           agreement, covenant or obligation contained in this Agreement or such
           Loan Document not provided for elsewhere and such default is not 
           cured within any grace period provided in this Agreement or such 
           other loan Document;

      (d)  The Borrower or any Subsidiary shall (i) voluntarily liquidate or 
           terminate operations or apply for or consent to the appointment of, 
           or the taking of possession by, a receiver, custodian, trustee or 
           liquidator or such Person or of all or of a substantial part of its 
           assets, (ii) admit in writing its inability, or be generally unable, 
           to pay its debts as the debts become due, (iii) make a general 
           assignment for the benefit of its creditors, (iv) commence a 
           voluntary case under the federal Bankruptcy Code (as now or hereafter
           in effect), (v) file a petition seeking to take advantage of any 
           other law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency; or

      (e)  Without its application, approval or consent, a proceeding shall be
           commenced, in any court of competent jurisdiction, seeking in respect
           of such Person any remedy under the federal Bankruptcy Code, the 
           liquidation, reorganization, dissolution, winding-up, or composition 
           or readjustment of debt, the appointment of a trustee, receiver, 
           liquidator or the like of such Person, or of all or any substantial 
           part of the assets of such Person, or other like relief under any law
           relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, winding-up, or 
           composition or adjustment of debts.

9.    Remedies. If any Default shall occur, the Bank may, without notice to the
      Borrower, at its option, withhold further Advances to the Borrower of 
      proceeds of the Loans. Should any Event of Default occur and not be cured 
      upon demand following delivery of written notice from the bank to the 
      Borrower complete upon hand or overnight delivery or upon facsimile 
      delivery or mailing by certified mail, return receipt requested, the Bank 
      may declare any or all Indebtedness to be immediately due and payable, 
      bring suit against the Borrower to collect the Indebtedness, exercise any 
      remedy available to the Bank hereunder and take any action or exercise any
      remedy provided herein or in any other Loan Document or under applicable 
      law. No remedy shall be exclusive of other remedies or impair the right of
      the Bank to exercise any other remedies.

10.   Severability No failure on the part of the Bank to exercise, and no delay 
      in exercising, any right hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall 
      operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of 
      any right hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the 
      exercise of any other right. The remedies herein provided are cumulative 
      and are in addition to any other remedies provided by law, any Loan 
      Document or otherwise.

10.1. Notices. Any notice or other communication hereunder to any party hereto
      shall be by hand delivery, overnight delivery, facsimile, telegram, telex 
      or registered certified mail and unless otherwise provided herein shall be
      deemed to have been given or made when delivered, telegraphed, telexed, 
      faxed or deposited in the mails, postage prepaid, addressed to the party 
      at its address specified below (or at any other address that the party may
      hereafter specify to the other parties in writing):
