(1)  Non-GAAP Information:  Funds from Operations (FFO) is defined as net income 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 bases.  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 quarter ended March 31, 2010 and 2009 is calculated as follows:



Net Income (Loss)



(Gain) Loss on Sales of Depreciable Assets

Samuel A. Landy, President, stated, "We are pleased with our first quarter results.  FFO per share amounted to $0.24 for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 as compared to a negative ($.005) for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.  Adjusting for the impact of our securities gains and losses, our FFO per share was $0.16 for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 as compared to $0.21 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.   Occupancy remained unchanged from year-end at 78%.  However, the US economy appears to be improving and while employment tends to be a lagging indicator, early indications are favorable for the company to generate increases in sales and occupancy.  We have continued to strengthen our already strong balance sheet and at quarter end had approximately $7 million in cash and over $37 million in REIT securities subject to margin and bank loans of $5 million.  We are well positioned for future growth and are actively seeking opportunistic investments."
