MONMOUTH REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

MARCH 31, 2012

          

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND ACCOUNTING POLICIES

     

Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation and its subsidiaries (MREIC, the Company or we) operate as a real estate investment trust (REIT) deriving our income primarily from real estate rental operations.  In addition, the Company currently owns a majority interest in a limited liability company of which the Company consolidates its results of operations and financial condition.  The Company also owns a portfolio of investment securities.


The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT under Sections 856-860 of the Internal Revenue Code (the Code), and intends to maintain its qualification as a REIT in the future.  As a qualified REIT, with limited exceptions, the Company will not be taxed under Federal and certain state income tax laws at the corporate level on taxable income that it distributes to its shareholders.  For special tax provisions applicable to REITs, refer to Sections 856-860 of the Code.  The Company is subject to franchise taxes in some of the states in which the Company owns property.  


The interim consolidated financial statements furnished herein have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US GAAP) applicable to interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q, and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by US GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 30, 2012. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2011.


Certain amounts in the consolidated financial statements for the prior periods presented have been reclassified to conform to the financial statement presentation for the current year.  During fiscal 2011, the Quakertown, PA property was reclassified to held for sale, which resulted in $-0- and $67,081 of income from discontinued operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $27,848 and $128,258 for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, being reclassified into discontinued operations.  On October 31, 2011, the Quakertown, PA property was sold.


Use of Estimates


In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, as well as contingent assets and liabilities as of the dates of the consolidated balance sheets and revenue and expenses for the periods then ended.  Actual results could differ significantly from these estimates and assumptions.


Lease Termination Income


Lease termination income is recognized in operating revenues when there is a signed termination agreement, all of the conditions of the agreement have been met, the tenant is no longer occupying the property and the termination consideration is probable of collection. Lease termination amounts are paid by tenants who want to terminate their lease obligations before the end of the contractual term of the lease by agreement with the Company.  In March 2012, the Company received $3,222,283 in lease termination income on its property in St. Joseph, MO.  The Company also received reimbursement of $79,353 for real estate taxes and utilities.  Additionally, if the Company does not re-lease or sell the property before November 30, 2012, the tenant will pay to the Company additional rent from September 1, 2012 through November 30, 2012 in the amount of $111,113 per month (pro-rated for any area/time leased).    On May 8, 2012, the Company re-leased approximately 65% of this property (see Note 12).

Stock Based Compensation


The Company accounts for stock options and restricted stock in accordance with ASC 718-10 which requires that compensation cost for all stock awards be calculated and amortized over the service period (generally equal to the vesting period).  This compensation cost for stock option grants is determined using option pricing models, intended to estimate the fair value of the awards at the grant date.  The compensation expense for restricted stock is recognized based on the fair value of the restricted stock awards less estimated forfeitures.  The fair value for restricted stock awards is equal to the fair value of the Company’s common stock on the grant date.  Compensation costs of $62,373 and $33,580 have been recognized in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively and compensation costs of $126,696 and $63,606 have been recognized in the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.


During the six months ended March 31, 2012, the following stock options were granted under the Company’s amended and restated 2007 stock option and stock award plan (the amended and restated 2007 Plan):

During the six months ended March 31, 2012, no shares of restricted stock were granted or forfeited.  During the six months ended March 31, 2012, options to purchase 27,620 shares were forfeited.  These shares were added back to the pool of shares available for grant under the amended and restated 2007 Plan.


During the six months ended March 31, 2012, six plan participants exercised options to purchase 102,620 shares of common stock at an average exercise price of $7.52 per share for total proceeds of $771,593.


A total of 864,342 shares were available to grant as stock options or as restricted stock under the amended and restated 2007 Plan as of March 31, 2012.  As of March 31, 2012, there were options outstanding to purchase 1,085,960 shares outstanding under the Plan.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements


In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs.  The pronouncement was issued to provide a uniform framework for fair value measurements and related disclosures between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. ASU 2011-04 changes certain fair value measurement principles and enhances the disclosure requirements particularly for Level 3 fair value measurements. This pronouncement is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011.  The adoption of ASU 2011-04 did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


            In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income.  ASU 2011-05 allows an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. ASU 2011-05 eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The amendments to the Codification in the ASU do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income and are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011.  In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-12, Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05. The provisions of ASU 2011-12 indefinitely defer portions of ASU 2011-05 related to the presentation of reclassifications of items out of accumulated other comprehensive income. The Company early adopted ASU 2011-05 which did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


NOTE 2 – NET INCOME ATTRIBUTABLE TO MREIC’S COMMON SHAREHOLDERS PER SHARE

     

Basic net income attributable to MREIC’s common shareholders per share is calculated by dividing net income attributable to MREIC’s common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per common share is calculated by dividing net income attributable to MREIC’s common shareholders plus interest expense related to the Company's Convertible Subordinated Debentures (Debentures) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding plus the weighted-average number of net shares that would be issued upon exercise of stock options pursuant to the treasury stock method, plus the number of shares resulting from the possible conversion of the Debentures during the period.  


The following amounts related to the potential conversion of the outstanding Debentures are excluded from the calculation due to their antidilutive effect:

The Company is also required to disclose certain information about fair values of financial instruments.  Estimates of fair value are made at a specific point in time based upon, where available, relevant market prices and information about the financial instrument.  Such estimates do not include any premium or discount that could result from offering for sale at one time the Company’s entire holdings of a particular financial instrument.  For a portion of the Company’s financial instruments, no quoted market value exists.  Therefore, estimates of fair value are necessarily based on a number of significant assumptions (many of which involve events outside the control of management).  Such assumptions include

assessments of current economic conditions, perceived risks associated with these financial instruments and their counterparties; future expected loss experience and other factors.  Given the uncertainties surrounding these assumptions, the reported fair values represent estimates only and, therefore, cannot be compared to the historical accounting model.  Use of different assumptions or methodologies is likely to result in significantly different fair value estimates.


The fair value of cash and cash equivalents approximates their current carrying amounts since all such items are short-term in nature.  The fair value of variable rate loans payable and Subordinated Convertible Debentures approximate their current carrying amounts since such amounts payable are at approximately a weighted-average current market rate of interest.  At March 31, 2012, the fair value (estimated based upon expected cash outflows discounted at current market rates) and carrying value of fixed rate mortgage notes payable amounted to $244,261,080 and $233,639,856 respectively.   As of September 30, 2011, the above listed real estate held for sale consists of an industrial property in



17



Quakertown, PA which was classified as held for sale and is recorded at estimated fair value.  On October 31, 2011, the Company sold this property.

ITEM 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.


Overview


The following discussion and analysis of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto provided elsewhere herein and the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011.


The Company is a REIT.  The Company’s primary business is the ownership and management of industrial buildings subject to long-term leases primarily to investment-grade tenants.   During the six months ended March 31, 2012, the Company purchased five net-leased industrial properties, located in Streetsboro, OH, Corpus Christi, TX, Halfmoon, NY, Lebanon, OH and Olive Branch, MS, totaling approximately 775,000 square feet, for approximately $52,211,000.   As of March 31, 2012, the Company owned sixty-nine industrial properties and one shopping center with total square footage of approximately 8,267,000 square feet.    These properties are located in twenty-five states.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s weighted average lease expiration term was approximately 5.2 years and its occupancy rate was 95%.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s average rent per occupied square foot for fiscal 2012 was estimated at approximately $5.58.  Total real estate investments were $453,947,314 as of March 31, 2012.


The Company’s revenue primarily consists of rental and reimbursement revenue from the ownership of industrial rental property.   Income from property operations defined as rental and reimbursement revenue less real estate taxes and operating expenses increased $602,114 or 6% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 and increased $1,259,812 or 7% for the six months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the six months ended March 31, 2011. The increase was due to the additional income related to the three industrial properties purchased during fiscal 2011 and the five purchased during fiscal 2012.  The Company’s revenue also includes lease termination income, which amounted to $3,222,283 for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and $-0- for the three and six months ended March 31, 2011.  This income represents the payment from our tenant at our St. Joseph, MO property terminating their lease obligation before the end of the contractual term of the lease.  On May 8, 2012, the Company re-leased approximately 65% of this property (see Note 12).



The Company has a concentration of FDX-leased properties.  As of March 31, 2012, no tenant leased more than 5% of the Company’s total leased square footage with the exception of FDX and its



19



subsidiaries, which leased 42% of our total leased square footage. In addition, the Mead Corporation, until their early termination effective March 31, 2012 (see Note 1), and Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores, Inc., each leased 5% of our total leased square footage.  The only tenant that accounted for more than 5% of our total rental and reimbursement revenue for the six months ended March 31, 2012 was FDX and its subsidiaries.  Annualized rental and reimbursement revenue from FDX and FDX subsidiaries is estimated at approximately 52% of total rental and reimbursement revenue for fiscal 2012.  This concentration is a risk shareholders should consider.


The Company also holds a portfolio of securities of other REITs with a fair value of $44,068,756 as of March 31, 2012, which earns dividend and interest income.  The dividends received from our securities investments were at a weighted average yield of approximately 6.8% as of March 31, 2012. During the six months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recognized gains on sale of securities of $4,997,715.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company had net unrealized gains on securities available for sale of $4,597,031.  The Company invests in REIT securities on margin from time to time when the Company can achieve an adequate yield spread.  The REIT securities portfolio provides the Company with liquidity and additional income and serves as a proxy for real property investments.    


On December 5, 2011, the Company sold 2,000,000 shares of common stock in a registered direct placement.  The Company received net proceeds from this offering of approximately $16,200,000.  The Company is using such net proceeds to purchase properties in the normal course of business and for general corporate purposes.


The Company has also entered into agreements to acquire two industrial properties in Texas and one industrial property in Oklahoma, subject to due diligence which the Company is currently conducting. These are new constructions that will be subject to 10 year net-leases to FedEx Ground Package Systems, Inc. These properties are scheduled for completion and occupancy in fiscal 2012 and the first half of fiscal 2013. The combined purchase price for these three properties will be approximately $31,950,000.  The Company has made deposits of $900,000 on these acquisitions as of March 31, 2012 which is included in other assets as of March 31, 2012.


See PART I, Item 1 – Business in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 for a more complete discussion of the economic and industry-wide factors relevant to the Company and the opportunities, challenges, and risks on which the Company is focused.  


Changes in Results of Operations


As of March 31, 2012, the Company owned seventy properties with total square footage of approximately 8,267,000 as compared to sixty-five properties with total square footage of approximately 7,418,000 as of March 31, 2011.  As of March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company’s weighted average lease expiration term was approximately 5.2 years and 5.1 years.  The Company’s occupancy rate was 95% and 97% as of March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

In fiscal 2012, approximately 16% of our gross leasable area, consisting of 12 leases totaling 1,301,769 square feet, was originally set to expire.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company extended the following leases which were scheduled to expire in fiscal 2012:

The Company has been informed that 2 leases for 174,892 square feet or 13% of the space coming up for renewal in 2012 will not be renewing.  This brings our occupancy rate to 95% after quarter end.  Leases for the remaining 152,035 square feet scheduled for renewal during fiscal 2012 are in renewal discussions.


Rental and reimbursement revenue increased $562, 932 or 5% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 and increased $1,321,537 or 5% for the six months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the six months ended March 31, 2011.  The net increase was due mainly to the following:


·

Rent and reimbursements from the new properties acquired in the first half of fiscal 2012 in Streetsboro, OH, Corpus Christi, TX, Halfmoon, NY, Lebanon, OH and Olive Branch, MS totaling approximately $876,000 and $1,405,000 for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012, respectively.


·

Increased rent and reimbursements from the properties acquired during fiscal 2011 in Lebanon, TN, Rockford, IL and Edinburg, TX totaling approximately $773,000 and 1,321,000 for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012, respectively.


Lease termination income amounted to $3,222,283 for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 compared to $-0- for the three and six months ended March 31, 2011.  This income represents the payment from our tenant at our St. Joseph, MO property terminating their lease obligation before the end of the contractual term of the lease.  On May 8, 2012, the Company re-leased approximately 65% of this property (see Note 12).



Real estate taxes remained relatively stable for the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three and six months ended March 31, 2011.


Operating expenses decreased $15,374 or 3% for the three months and remained relatively stable for the six months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three and six months ended March 31, 2011.  Increases in management fees and insurance were offset by a decrease in utilities, repairs and maintenance and other operating expenses.  


General and administrative expense decreased $27,305 or 3% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 and decreased $151,082 or 7% for the six



21



months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the six months ended March 31, 2011.  The decrease in the three months ended March 31, 2012 was due primarily to the decrease in administrative and directors fees offset by an increase in franchise taxes.  The decrease for the six months ended March 31, 2012 was due mainly to a decrease in compensation from the six months ended March 31, 2011 which included a one-time severance payment of $275,000 to a former executive.  The decrease was partially offset by increases in franchise taxes and other administrative expenses of approximately $95,000.

 

Interest and dividend income increased $131,745 or 17% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 and $354,474 or 24% for the six months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the six months ended March 31, 2011.  These increases were due mainly due to a rotation into higher yielding securities.  The weighted average yield was approximately 7.3% and 6.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and approximately 6.8% and 6.6% for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.


The Company recognized a gain on sale of securities of $2,209,257 and $1,000,503 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $4,997,715 and $3,808,525 for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  In addition, the Company had net unrealized gains on its securities held for sale of $4,597,031 as of March 31, 2012.


Discontinued operations in the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 include the operations of the property in Quakertown, Pennsylvania which was classified as held for sale as of September 30, 2011 and was sold on October 31, 2011.  The following table summarizes the components of discontinued operations:

Changes in Financial Condition


The Company generated net cash from operating activities of $15,920,253 and $10,696,869 for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.   


Net real estate investments increased $44,923,758 from September 30, 2011 to March 31, 2012. This increase was due mainly to the purchase of the industrial properties in Streetsboro, OH, Corpus Christi, TX, Halfmoon, NY, Lebanon, OH and Olive Branch, MS totaling approximately $52,211,000 partially offset by depreciation expense for the six month period of $5,615,773.


Securities available for sale decreased $196,303 from September 30, 2011 to March 31, 2012.  The decrease was due mainly to the sales and redemptions of securities with an adjusted cost of $14,251,223 and an increase in the unrealized gain on securities of $2,228,868 partially offset by purchases of securities of $11,826,052.


Other assets decreased $311,846 due mainly to the decrease in deposits made on property purchases.  These deposits are reclassified to real estate investments upon the closing of the transaction.


Mortgage notes payable increased $22,025,686 from September 30, 2011 to March 31, 2012.  The increase was due mainly to the five mortgages of $34,133,000 originated in connection with the acquisitions of the five industrial properties purchased in fiscal 2012.  Details on the mortgages are as follows:

The increase in mortgages was partially offset by scheduled payments of principal of $7,744,898 and balloon payments on the Winston Salem, NC and White Bear Lake, MN property mortgages of $4,830,107.   In addition, the Company refinanced the existing mortgage on the Memphis, TN property with a balance of $9,432,309 at an interest rate of 6.25% due October 15, 2014.  The new $9,900,000 mortgage, which matures on January 1, 2024, is at a fixed interest rate of 4.5%.  The Company is scheduled to repay a total of approximately $20,000,000 in mortgage principal in the next 12 months and intends to make these principal payments from cash from operations and refinancings.


The Company’s outstanding 8% Debentures decreased $125,000 from September 30, 2011 to March 31, 2012.  The decrease was due to repurchases at par.   


Loans payable decreased $3,160,950 from September 30, 2011 to March 31, 2012.   The decrease was mainly due to payments on the line of credit of $2,500,000 and repayments on the margin loan of $5,860,950 offset by a new 5-year term loan of $2,500,000 from Two River at a fixed interest rate of 4.9%, and a new 5-year term loan of $2,700,000 from The Bank of Princeton as a variable rate of prime plus .75% with a floor of 4.5%.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company had no outstanding balance on its margin loans and $8,500,000 outstanding on its line of credit.   


Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Net cash provided by operating activities was $15,920,253 and $10,696,869 for the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  Distributions paid on common stock for the six months ended March 31, 2012 were $11,614,217 and $10,339,354, respectively (of which $1,230,696 and



23



$2,680,933, respectively, was reinvested).  The Company pays distributions from cash provided by operating activities.     


As of March 31, 2012, the Company owned securities available for sale of $44,068,756 subject to term loans of $5,200,000.  These marketable securities provide the Company with additional liquidity as well as dividend income.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company had a net unrealized gain on its portfolio of $4,597,031.  The dividends received from our investments continue to meet our expectations.


As of March 31, 2012, the Company owned seventy properties (sixty-nine industrial properties and one shopping center), of which fifty-nine carried mortgage loans totaling $233,639,856.  The unencumbered properties could be refinanced to raise additional funds, although covenants in the Company’s line of credit limit the amount of unencumbered properties which can be mortgaged.  The Company had $11,500,000 available on its $20,000,000 line of credit as of March 31, 2012.    The Company’s total net debt plus preferred equity to total market capitalization was 43% as of March 31, 2012.  


The Company has also entered into agreements to acquire two industrial properties in Texas and one industrial property in Oklahoma, subject to due diligence which the Company is currently conducting. These are new constructions that will be subject to 10 year net-leases to FedEx Ground Package Systems, Inc. These properties are scheduled for completion and occupancy in fiscal 2012 and the first half of fiscal 2013. The combined purchase price for these three properties will be approximately $31,950,000.  The Company has made deposits of $900,000 on these acquisitions as of March 31, 2012 which is included in other assets as of March 31, 2012.

On December 5, 2011 the Company sold 2,000,000 shares of common stock in a registered direct placement.  The Company received net proceeds from this offering of approximately $16,200,000.  The Company is using such net proceeds to purchase properties in the normal course of business and for general corporate purposes.


During the six months ended March 31, 2012, the Company paid $2,039,610 in preferred dividends.  On April 18, 2012, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $.4766 per share of the Company’s 7.625% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock payable June 15, 2012, to preferred shareholders of record as of May 15, 2012.


The Company raised $11,305,344 (including reinvestments of $1,230,696) from the issuance of 1,334,718 common shares in the DRIP during the six months ended March 31, 2012.  During the six months ended March 31, 2012, the Company paid $11,614,217 in total cash dividends or $0.30 per common share to common shareholders, of which $1,230,696 was reinvested in the DRIP.  On April 18, 2012, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.15 per common share to be paid on June 15, 2012 to common shareholders of record as of May 15, 2012.  On March 13, 2012, the Company temporarily suspended its Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan.  As a result, the dividend that was payable on March 15, 2012 was paid in cash to all common shareholders otherwise participating in dividend reinvestment.  


The Company uses a variety of sources to fund its cash needs in addition to cash generated through operations. The Company may sell marketable securities, borrow on its margin loans, refinance debt, or raise capital through the DRIP or capital markets.  


As described above, the Company has been raising capital through its DRIP, registered direct placements and public offerings of common and preferred stock and investing in net leased industrial properties.  The Company believes that funds generated from operations and from its recent public offerings, together with the ability to finance and refinance its properties, will provide sufficient funds to adequately meet its obligations over the next year.


The Company seeks to invest in well-located, modern buildings leased primarily to investment grade tenants on long-term leases.  In management’s opinion, newly built facilities leased to FDX and its subsidiaries meet these criteria.  The Company has a concentration of FDX and FDX subsidiary leased



24



properties.  As of March 31, 2012, no tenant leased more than 5% of the Company’s total leased square footage with the exception of FDX and its subsidiaries, which leased 42% of our total leased square footage, and the Mead Corporation, until their early termination effective March 31, 2012 (see Note 1) and Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores, Inc., each of which leased 5% of our total leased square footage.  The only tenant that accounted for more than 5% of our total rental and reimbursement revenue for the six months ended March 31, 2012 was FDX and its subsidiaries.  Annualized rent and reimbursement revenue from FDX and FDX subsidiaries is estimated at approximately 52% of total rental and reimbursement revenue for fiscal year 2012.  FDX is a publicly-owned corporation and information on its financial business operations is readily available to the Company’s shareholders.  


The Company intends to acquire additional net-leased industrial properties on long-term leases, primarily to investment grade tenants, and expand its current properties when needed.  The Company has historically financed purchases of real estate and expansions primarily through mortgages and available cash reserves.   To the extent that funds or appropriate properties are not available, fewer acquisitions and expansions will be made.  


Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.


Funds From Operations


Funds from operations (FFO) is defined as net income, excluding gains or losses from sales of depreciable assets, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization.   FFO should be considered as a supplemental measure of operating performance used by REITs.  FFO excludes historical cost depreciation as an expense and may facilitate the comparison of REITs which have different cost basis.  The items excluded from FFO are significant components in understanding the Company’s financial performance.


FFO (i) does not represent cash flow from operations as defined by generally accepted accounting principles; (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) is not an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.  FFO, 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 March 31, 2012 and 2011 is calculated as follows:

Risk Factors.  

In addition to the other information set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A – “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2011, which could materially affect the Company’s business, financial condition or future results. The risks described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and set forth below are not the only risks facing the Company.  Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to the Company or that the Company currently deems to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition and/or operating results.

Certain of our officers and directors, and certain other employees, also serve as officers, directors or employees of UMH. These individuals’ responsibilities to our company and to UMH could reduce the amount of time they spend managing our company or create competition for the time and efforts of these individuals.


We issued shares of our common stock under our Registration Statement on Form S-3 for our Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan when we were not eligible to use Form S-3, which may result in claims for rescission and other damages.

Due to the late filing of a Form 8-K, we temporarily lost our eligibility to register securities on a Form S-3 on December 12, 2011. Despite this ineligibility, we issued approximately 859,000 shares of common stock under our Form S-3 registration statement for our Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan, or our DRIP, in December 2011, January 2012 and February 2012. The aggregate purchase price of these shares was approximately $7.4 million. We have discontinued issuances under this registration statement. The purchasers of the shares issued pursuant to our DRIP when we were not eligible to issue shares Form S-3 could bring claims against us for rescission and other damages under federal or state securities laws.
