One Liberty Properties, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

Rental Income Increased 8.9% Over the Second Quarter 2010

GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - One Liberty Properties, Inc. (NYSE: OLP), an owner of a geographically diversified portfolio of retail, industrial, office and other properties primarily under long term leases in the United States, today announced operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Patrick J. Callan, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of One Liberty, stated, "During the second quarter, we continued to execute our business strategy and delivered solid results. We continue to seek acquisitions to build our portfolio while at the same time taking advantage of opportunities to improve our property portfolio. This was exemplified by the sale of a property for a gain of $932,000. We intend to re-deploy the capital in the next few quarters as we work to close on properties in our pipeline of opportunities."

Operating Results:

Rental income for second quarter of 2011 increased 8.9% to $11.24 million compared to $10.32 million for the second quarter of 2010. The increase is attributable primarily to rental income earned from the 15 properties the Company has acquired since February 2010.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2011 were $5.0 million compared to $4.73 million for the second quarter in the prior year.

Income from continuing operations was $4.11 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to $2.15 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010. Included in the current period results is $1.24 million ($0.085 per share) attributable to gain on settlement of debt at a discount. The per share impact to 2011 results takes into account the issuance of 2.7 million shares in February 2011 and shares issued under the Company's dividend reinvestment program.

Asset Disposition:

The Company sold a property located in California for approximately $11.5 million, for a net gain of $932,000.

Funds from Operations:

Funds from Operations ("FFO") was $6.7 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2010. FFO per diluted share increased 15% to $0.46 in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $0.40 in the same period in 2010, with $1.24 million or $0.085 per diluted share representing a gain attributable to the settlement of debt at a discount. The per share impact to 2011 FFO takes into account the issuance of 2.7 million shares issued in February 2011 and shares issued under the Company's dividend reinvestment program. A reconciliation of GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts is presented with the financial information included later in this release.

Balance Sheet:

The Company at June 30, 2011 had $11.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, total assets of $437.3 million, total debt of $202.7 million and stockholders' equity of $220.2 million.

Dividend:

On July 6, 2011, the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per share to stockholders of record as of June 28, 2011. Based on the closing price of $14.23 per share on August 4, 2011 the current yield on an annualized basis is 9.3%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
One Liberty believes that Funds from Operations ("FFO") is a widely recognized and appropriate measure of the performance of an equity REIT. One Liberty presents FFO because it considers FFO to be an important supplemental measure of One Liberty's operating performance. One Liberty believes FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. As a result, FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing perspective that may not necessarily be apparent from net income.

One Liberty has determined FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT"). FFO is defined by NAREIT as "net income (or loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures." FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and is not indicative of cash available to fund cash needs. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Management believes FFO is of interest to securities analysts, investors and other interested parties and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures as reported by others.
