April 30, 2014

NEWS RELEASE April 30, 2014 Southfield, MI, April 30, 2014 - Sun Communities, Inc. (NYSE: SUI) (the "Company"), a real estate investment trust ("REIT") that owns and operates manufactured housing and recreational vehicle communities, today reported its first quarter results. Highlights:  Three Months Ended March 31, 2014 * FFO((1)) excluding acquisition related costs was $0.95 per diluted share and OP unit ("Share") for the three months ended March 31, 2014. * Same site Net Operating Income ("NOI")((2)) increased by 6.6 percent as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2013. * Revenue producing sites increased by 560 sites bringing total portfolio occupancy to 90.2 percent. * Raised $214.0 million in net proceeds from an equity offering of 4.8 million shares of common stock. $27.6 million of the proceeds were received after quarter end when the underwriters exercised their option to purchase additional shares. * Four recreational vehicle communities were acquired during the first quarter of 2014 for $106.0 million. "Despite some literally strong headwinds, we earned FFO per share above our guidance for the quarter.  Results were strong across the board with a 560 site gain in occupancy, home sales improvement each month throughout the quarter, and same site NOI growth of 6.6%. In addition, with our most recent equity offering we continued our commitment to acquire properties on a leverage neutral basis and have excellent financial flexibility to support our continuing investment in new properties with strong growth potential," said Gary A. Shiffman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "With interest from both small investors and private equity investors and the favorable debt financing available for manufactured housing communities, we are taking advantage of the attractive market for asset dispositions and have 11 properties selected for potential sale.  When all 11 properties are sold our site counts in Michigan and Indiana will reduce by approximately 8% and 25%, respectively," Shiffman added. Funds from Operations ("FFO")((1)) FFO((1) ) excluding acquisition related costs was $38.3 million and $31.7 million, or $0.95 and $0.93 per Share for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders Net income attributable to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2014 was $7.8 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, as compared to net income of $5.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted common share, for the first quarter of 2013. Community Occupancy Total portfolio occupancy increased to 90.2 percent at March 31, 2014 from 88.6 percent at March 31, 2013.  During the first quarter of  2014, revenue producing sites increased by 560 sites as compared to 621 revenue producing sites gained in the first quarter of 2013.  Of  the 560 sites, 449 were gained in same site properties while the remaining 111 were gained in properties acquired in 2013 and 2014. Same Site Results For 173 communities owned throughout 2014 and 2013, first quarter 2014 total revenues increased 6.8 percent and total expenses increased 7.2 percent, resulting in an increase in NOI((2)) of 6.6 percent over the first quarter of 2013.  Approximately $0.7 million of repair, maintenance and utility expenses were incurred related to extreme weather conditions in certain of the Company's markets.  Same site occupancy increased to 89.9 percent at March 31, 2014 from 88.6 percent at March 31, 2013. Home Sales During the first quarter of 2014, 369 homes were sold as compared to the 466 homes sold during the first quarter of 2013. Rental home sales, which are included in total home sales, were 134 and 236 for the first quarters of 2014 and 2013, respectively.  The impact to home sales in the quarter was related to weather and new legislative provisions requiring modification to application processing and closing requirements which were resolved by the middle of March. The Company has made no revision to its previously provided guidance of 2,200 annual home sales. Acquisitions As previously announced, the Company acquired four recreational vehicle communities with over 1,900 developed sites and 89 expansion sites for a combined purchase price of  $106.0 million.  Subsequent to quarter end, on April 25, 2014, the Company acquired a recreational vehicle community located in Saco, Maine, comprised of 127 sites and land for additional expansion for a purchase price of $4.4 million. Dispositions The Company has selected 11 communities for disposition located in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Nevada.  The Company is in varying stages of negotiations with regard to the sale of the majority of these communities.  If all 11 properties are sold, the Company's total portfolio occupancy will increase by an estimated 200 basis points, site holdings in Michigan and Indiana will reduce by 8 percent and 25 percent, respectively and an estimated 700 rental homes will be sold as a result of the transactions. Equity Transactions On March 11, 2014, the Company closed an underwritten registered public offering of 4,200,000 shares of common stock.  Subsequent to quarter end, on April 8, 2014, the underwriters exercised their option to purchase an additional 630,000 shares.  The net proceeds from the offering of $214.0 million were used to repay borrowings outstanding under the Company's senior secured revolving credit facility and any remaining net proceeds will be used to fund potential future acquisitions of properties and for working capital and general corporate purposes. Guidance The Company revises its 2014 FFO((1) )guidance below:   Q2 2014 2014 FFO ((1)) excluding acquisition related costs $0.74 - $0.76 per Share $3.33 - $3.43 per Share Guidance is inclusive of acquisitions completed through April 30, 2014.  No prospective acquisitions or prospective acquisition related costs are included in guidance.  Below are updates to the guidance previously provided.  Items not addressed below remain unchanged. Revenues and expenses contain a component of seasonality; therefore, FFO((1)) per Share is not earned evenly throughout the year.  The Company earned 28.1% of estimated FFO((1)) in the first quarter, and expects to earn 22.2% , 26.9% and 22.8% of estimated FFO((1))  in the second, third and fourth quarters, respectively. * Same Site Portfolio: At the midpoint of guidance the Company's same property portfolio of 173 communities is expected to generate revenue growth of approximately 6.0% and property and operating expense growth of 3.5% resulting in NOI ((2)  )growth of approximately 7.1%. Revenue producing sites are expected to increase by approximately 1,790 sites in the Company's same site portfolio.

ACQUISITION PORTFOLIO (20 communities)   Forecasted 2014 (Dollar amounts in millions)   Midpoint ----------------------------------------- ------------------ REVENUES: Revenue- annual and seasonal   $ 15.0 Revenue- transient   15.3 Other property income   2.4 ------------------ Income from property   32.7 ------------------ PROPERTY OPERATING EXPENSES: Real estate tax   1.6 Property operating and maintenance   14.1 ------------------ Total operating expense   15.7 ------------------ NOI( (2) )from Real Property   $ 17.0 ------------------ * Recreational Vehicle Revenue: Revenue from the Company's recreational vehicle communities contains a component of transient revenue from guest stays that are other than a full year or full season.  Transient revenue is expected to be approximately $28.9 million, of which 27.7% was earned in the first quarter and 18.3%, 40.7%, 13.3% is expected to be earned in the second, third and fourth quarters, respectively. * Rental Home Program: Guidance assumes an increase of approximately 770 occupied rental units. Approximately 54% of these additions are expected to be in communities acquired or expanded in the past two years.

The budgeted average gross profit per home sale is $6,250.  Total home sales include the sale of 1,100 rental homes which will convert approximately 11% of the Company's renters to owners. The profit from rental home sales is removed from the calculation of FFO ((1)). ·           Other Income: Interest income, ancillary revenues, net, brokerage commissions and other income, net and distributions from affiliates is expected to approximate $22.7 million. ·           Community Dispositions: The Company anticipates, and full year guidance includes, an FFO ((1)) impact of ($0.05) to ($0.06) per Share resulting from the sale of 11 communities.  The Company has signed a purchase agreement for one disposition, which is subject to customary closing conditions. The Company is in varying stages of negotiation with respect to certain other proposed dispositions but has not yet reached agreement to dispose of any of these properties.  As a result, there can be no assurance that the Company will sell any of these properties this year or at all. The estimates and assumptions are forward looking based on the Company's current assessment of economic and market conditions, as well as other risks outlined below under the caption "Forward-Looking Statements" and may differ materially from actual results.

((1)      )Funds from operations ("FFO") is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles "GAAP"), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable operating property, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure that management believes is a useful supplemental measure of the Company's operating performance. Management generally considers FFO to be a useful measure for reviewing comparative operating and financial performance because, by excluding gains and losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, impairment and excluding real estate asset depreciation and amortization (which can vary among owners of identical assets in similar condition based on historical cost accounting and useful life estimates), FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs, providing perspective not readily apparent from net loss. Management believes that the use of FFO has been beneficial in improving the understanding of operating results of REITs among the investing public and making comparisons of REIT operating results more meaningful. FFO is computed in accordance with the Company's interpretation of standards established by NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than the Company. Because FFO excludes significant economic components of net income (loss) including depreciation and amortization, FFO should be used as an adjunct to net income (loss) and not as an alternative to net income (loss). The principal limitation of FFO is that it does not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP and is a supplemental measure of performance that does not replace net income (loss) as a measure of performance or net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity. In addition, FFO is not intended as a measure of a REIT's ability to meet debt principal repayments and other cash requirements, nor as a measure of working capital. FFO only provides investors with an additional performance measure. ((2)      )Investors in and analysts following the real estate industry utilize NOI as a supplemental performance measure. NOI is derived from revenues minus property operating expenses and real estate taxes. NOI does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternative to net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of the Company's financial performance or to be an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of the Company's liquidity; nor is it indicative of funds available for the Company's cash needs, including its ability to make cash distributions. The Company believes that net income (loss) is the most directly comparable GAAP measurement to NOI. Net income (loss) includes interest and depreciation and amortization which often have no effect on the market value of a property and therefore limit its use as a performance measure. In addition, such expenses are often incurred at a parent company level and therefore are not necessarily linked to the performance of a real estate asset. The Company believes that NOI is helpful to investors as a measure of operating performance because it is an indicator of the return on property investment, and provides a method of comparing property performance over time. The Company uses NOI as a key management tool when evaluating performance and growth of particular properties and/or groups of properties. The principal limitation of NOI is that it excludes depreciation, amortization, interest expense, and non-property specific expenses such as general and administrative expenses, all of which are significant costs, and therefore, NOI is a measure of the operating performance of the properties of the Company rather than of the Company overall.
