Net income increased $541,000 to a total of $4.14 million compared with $3.6 million in 2004.

For the first six months of 2005, diluted FFO increased 10.2% or $2.27 million to a total of $24.5 million compared with $22.2 million for first six months of 2004. Net income increased 13.1% or $1.05 million to a total of $9.05 million compared with$8 million in 2004. “As a result of our productive three months and the business opportunities on the horizon, we remain bullish about our prospects,” Gershenson said.
