(1)  Non-GAAP Information:  Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Shareholders (FFO) is defined by NAREIT as net income attributable to common shareholders excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable assets, plus depreciation.  FFO per share is defined as FFO divided by the weighted average shares outstanding.  FFO and FFO per share should be considered as supplemental measures of operating performance used by real estate investment trust (REITs).  FFO and FFO per share exclude historical cost depreciation as an expense and may facilitate the comparison of REITs which have different cost basis.  The items excluded from FFO and FFO per share are significant components in understanding and assessing the Company's financial performance.  FFO and FFO per share (1) do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by generally accepted accounting principles; (2) should not be considered as alternatives to net income or net income per share as measures of operating performance or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities; and (3) are not alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.  FFO and FFO per share, as calculated by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other REITs.  Core FFO is defined as FFO plus acquisition costs.

The Company's FFO and Core FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 is calculated as follows:

Samuel A. Landy, President, commented on the first quarter of 2013 results, "UMH is pleased with its accomplishments during the quarter. Our portfolio occupancy increased 400 basis points year over year, from 77% at March 31, 2012 to 81% at March 31, 2013.  We have seen an increase in demand for rental units and are meeting this demand."

"UMH has continued to strengthen its already strong balance sheet.  On March 29, 2013, the Company entered into a new $35 million Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility with Bank of Montreal.  The Company has the ability to increase the borrowing capacity to $50 million. This new facility will give us additional borrowing capacity and flexibility to support our growth strategy."

"Our REIT securities portfolio continued to perform well generating $3.3 million in realized gains in the first quarter of 2013 and an additional $8.2 million in unrealized gains at quarter end.  Over the past few years, we have been very successful in harnessing gains on our securities investment and redeploying that capital into our community acquisitions.  In March 2013, the Company acquired 10 manufactured home communities for $67.5 million.  These 10 all age communities total 1,854 sites and are situated on approximately 400 acres.  In April 2013, the company acquired Holiday Mobile Village, a 274-site manufactured home community located in Nashville, Tennessee, for a purchase price of $7,250,000.  The Company is very well positioned to continue to execute its growth strategy and anticipates additional acquisitions in 2013."

UMH, a publicly-owned REIT, owns and operates sixty-eight manufactured home communities containing approximately 12,800 developed home sites. These communities are located in New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Indiana and Michigan.  In addition, the Company owns a portfolio of REIT securities.
