On October 22, 2012, Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. (the "Company") issued a news release announcing its results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. The information is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this report on Form 8-K. The news release was also posted on the Company's website, www.equitylifestyle.com, on October 22, 2012.

The Company projects its net income per share (fully diluted) and funds from operations ("FFO") per share (fully diluted) for the year ending December 31, 2012 to be between $1.12 and $1.22 and $4.54 and $4.64, respectively.

The Company's annualized dividend for 2012 is $1.75 per common share. At the next quarterly Board of Directors meeting, management of the Company intends to recommend an increase of $0.25 per common share to the annual dividend for 2013 for a total dividend of $2.00 per common share. The Board of Directors of the Company has the sole discretion to approve an increase of the dividend and therefore there can be no assurance that this increase will be approved.

The information contained in this report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed "filed" with the Securities and Exchange Commission nor incorporated by reference in any registration statement filed by Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

When used, words such as "anticipate," "expect," "believe," "project," "intend," "may be" and "will be" and similar words or phrases, or the negative thereof, unless the context requires otherwise, are intended to identify forward-looking statements and may include, without limitation, information regarding the Company's expectations, goals or intentions regarding the future, and the expected effect of the recent acquisitions on the Company. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to:

          volatility;


         results from home sales and occupancy will continue to be impacted by
          local economic conditions, lack of affordable manufactured home
          financing and competition from alternative housing options including
          site-built single-family housing;


         impact of government intervention to stabilize site-built single family
          housing and not manufactured housing;

          estimates regarding the future performance of recent acquisitions;


         unanticipated costs or unforeseen liabilities associated with the
          recent acquisitions;


         ability to obtain financing or refinance existing debt on favorable
          terms or at all;

the effect of interest rates;

the dilutive effects of issuing additional securities;

          representing a right-to-use the Properties under the Codification Topic
          "Revenue Recognition;" and


         other risks indicated from time to time in the Company's filings with
          the Securities and Exchange Commission.
