ELS Reports Fourth Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: ELS

2. See page 10 for the Income from Property Operations detail for the 2011 Acquisition Properties.

3. Includes approximately $50,000 resulting from the decrease in fair value of the net asset described in the following sentences. The Company owns both a fee interest and a leasehold interest in a 2,200 site property. The ground lease contains a purchase option on behalf of the lessee and a put option on behalf of the lessor. The options may be exercised by either party upon the death of the fee holder. The Company is the beneficiary of an escrow funded by the seller and denominated in approximately 114,000 shares of common stock of the Company. The escrow was established to protect the Company from future scheduled ground lease payments as well as scheduled increases in the option purchase price over time. The current fair value estimate of the escrow is $6.8 million. The Company will revalue the asset as of each reporting date and will recognize in earnings any increase or decrease in fair value of the escrow.

4. See definition of FFO on page 21.

5. Fourth quarter 2012 FFO adjusted to include a deduction for depreciation expense on rental homes would have been $48.6 million, or $1.07 per fully diluted share.

6. Net income per fully diluted common share is calculated before Income allocated to OP Units.
