(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 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 six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 is calculated as follows:

Samuel A. Landy, President, stated, "We are pleased with our 2010 results to date.  FFO per share amounted to $0.44 for the six months ended June 30, 2010 as compared to $.19 for the six months ended June 30, 2009.  We purchased two communities in June; Sunny Acres, a 207-site community in Somerset, PA, and Suburban Estates, a 200-site community in Greensburg, PA.  These two high-quality, well-occupied communities are an excellent fit to our existing portfolio.  Our securities portfolio has performed well, with an unrealized gain of approximately $3,400,000 at quarter end.  We have continued to strengthen our already strong balance sheet.  We now have 16 unencumbered assets, approximately $3 million in cash, over $33 million in REIT securities subject to margin and bank loans of $11 million, an unused $5 million line of credit, and a low leverage ratio of approximately 46% debt to total market cap. Our occupancy rate remained unchanged from year-end at 78%. However, we anticipate that falling conventional homeownership rates will translate into increased demand for our homesites.  UMH is well positioned for continued growth and we are actively seeking opportunistic investments."

UMH, a publicly-owned REIT, owns and operates thirty manufactured home communities located in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Tennessee.  In addition, the Company owns a portfolio of REIT securities.
