Samuel A. Landy, President and CEO, commented on the results of the second quarter of 2014:

"Core FFO per share has increased from $0.05 for the fourth quarter of 2013 to $0.11 for the first quarter of 2014 to $0.15 for the current quarter.  Income from community operations increased to $7.4 million for the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $6.8 million for the same period in 2013.  Same store occupancy has increased by 130 basis points to 82.6% currently, as compared to 81.3% a year ago.  Occupancy in rental units continues to be strong and is currently at 93%.  These positive trends are expected to continue throughout 2014."

"On the acquisition front, subsequent to quarter-end, we purchased six manufactured home communities located in Pennsylvania and Ohio for an aggregate cost of $17.6 million.  These all-age communities total approximately 600 developed homesites situated on 278 acres.  The weighted-average occupancy for these communities is 87%.  We anticipate additional acquisitions going forward."

Notes:

(1)  Non-US GAAP Information:  FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") as net income applicable to common shareholders, excluding gains or losses from sales of depreciable assets, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization.   We define Core FFO as FFO plus acquisition costs.  We define Income from Community Operations as Rental and Related Income less Community Operating Expenses.  FFO and Core FFO per diluted common share are defined as FFO and Core FFO divided by weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.  FFO and Core FFO per diluted common share should be considered as supplemental measures of operating performance used by real estate investment trusts (REITs).   FFO and Core FFO per diluted common 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 Core FFO per diluted common share are significant components in understanding the Company's financial performance.

FFO and Core FFO per diluted common share (A) do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; (B) 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 (C) are not alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.  FFO and Core FFO per diluted common share, 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, 2014 and 2013 are calculated as follows:
