Non-GAAP Information:  Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Shareholders (FFO) is defined 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.

The Company's FFO for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 is calculated as follows:

Samuel A. Landy, President, stated, "FFO amounted to $2,102,000 or $0.13 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $1,680,000 or $0.11 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  Occupancy increased 300 basis points from year end from 77% to 80% at September 30, 2012.  We have seen an increase in sales during 2012.  We have also seen an increase in demand for rental units and are meeting this demand.  Our securities portfolio has continued to perform well, with $3.5 million in gains realized thus far in 2012 and an additional $7.6 million in unrealized gains at quarter end."           

"UMH has continued to execute its growth plan.  In July, we acquired a 123-site community in New Middletown, Ohio for a purchase price of $3.4 million.  In August, we acquired 11 communities, ten located in Pennsylvania and one located in New York, for a total purchase price of $28.3 million.   In September, we acquired two communities with a total of 280 sites located in Ohio for a purchase price of $5.9 million.  Subsequent to quarter end, in October we issued 1,250,000 shares of our 8.25% Series A Preferred Stock, generating net proceeds of approximately $31 million.   The company is very well positioned to continue to execute its growth strategy."

UMH, a publicly-owned REIT, owns and operates fifty-five manufactured home communities containing approximately 10,400 developed home sites. These communities are located in New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Indiana.  In addition, the Company owns a portfolio of REIT securities.
