Palm Harbor Homes Announces Completion of $141 Million 2005 Securitization by CountryPlace Mortgage.

DALLAS -- Palm Harbor Homes, Inc. (Nasdaq/NM:PHHM) today announced that CountryPlace Mortgage, Ltd., the Company's 80 percent owned full-service chattel lender subsidiary, has closed CountryPlace Manufactured Housing Contract Trust 2005-1, a $141 million Rule 144A securitization, which represents the first time a new issuer has issued manufactured housing asset-backed securities in this decade.

The proceeds from the securitization will be used to repay borrowings from its warehouse facility and to originate new loans. The securities were offered and sold only to "qualified institutional buyers" in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
