Samuel A. Landy, President, commented on the second quarter of 2013 results, "UMH is pleased with its accomplishments during the quarter. Our portfolio occupancy increased 100 basis points over the quarter, from 81% to 82% currently and is up 400 basis points over the prior year.  Our income from community operations (defined as rental and related income less community operating expenses) increased 20% from $5,695,000 for the prior quarter to $6,836,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, and increased 70% from $4,027,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Core FFO per share is up 28% for the six months ended June 30, 2013 from $0.36 in the prior year period to $0.46 currently.  Our acquisitions are being well-integrated and have resulted in increased earnings per share from our community operations."

"In April 2013, UMH acquired Holiday Mobile Village, a 274-site manufactured home community located in Nashville, Tennessee, for a purchase price of $7,250,000.  Additionally, as a result of a new mortgage in 2013, the modification of rates on existing mortgages and paying off higher rate debt, our weighted-average interest rate continued to improve and is now at 4.4%. Our REIT securities portfolio continued to perform well generating $3.7 million in realized gains in the first half of 2013 and an additional $5.2 million in unrealized gains at quarter end. The Company is very well positioned to continue to execute its growth strategy and anticipates additional acquisitions in 2013."

UMH Properties, Inc., 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.

Non-GAAP Information:  We assess and measure our overall operating results based upon an industry performance measure referred to as Funds From Operations (FFO), which management believes is a useful indicator of our operating performance.  FFO is used by industry analysts and investors as a supplemental operating performance measure of a REIT.  FFO, as defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), represents Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Common Shareholders, as defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US GAAP), excluding Extraordinary Items, as defined under US GAAP, Gains or Losses from sales of previously depreciated real estate assets, Impairment Charges related to depreciable real estate assets, plus certain non-cash items such as Real Estate Asset Depreciation and Amortization.  NAREIT created FFO as a non-US GAAP supplemental measure of REIT operating performance.  We define Core Funds From Operations (Core FFO), as FFO plus Acquisition Costs.  FFO and Core FFO should be considered as supplemental measures of operating performance used by REITs.  FFO and Core FFO exclude historical Cost Depreciation as an expense and may facilitate the comparison of REITs which have different cost bases.  The items excluded from FFO and Core FFO are significant components in understanding the Company's financial performance. 




FFO and Core FFO (i) do not represent Cash Flow from Operations as defined by US GAAP; (ii) should not be considered as an alternative to Net Income as a measure of operating performance or to Cash Flows from Operating, Investing and Financing activities; and (iii) are not alternatives to Cash Flow as a measure of liquidity.  FFO and Core FFO, as calculated by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other REITs. 

 

The Company's FFO and Core FFO for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 is calculated as follows:
