DALLAS -- January 30, 2014

American Realty Investors, Inc. (ARL) today recognized a 161% increase in
stock value over the period of eighteen months. ARL’s common stock had quoted
value per share of approximately $5.85 as of January 30, 2014.

“As we look back on our strategic commitment to fortify our portfolio we are
pleased to see solid results. This is evidenced by both our residential and
commercial occupancy levels running higher than last year, and significantly
higher over the previous several years,” stated CEO and President Daniel J.
Moos. “We’re also starting to see new development opportunities, which should
provide us with enhanced ability to sell various land assets. We will continue
to adapt to the improved results in the Texas and surrounding regions’ real
estate market and are cautiously optimistic about the future as the market
continues to improve.”

With over 40 years in the real estate industry, Gene Phillips, advisory source
to Pillar Income Asset Management, Inc., notes that the changes in the current
market are in keeping with his experience through previous recessions. “The
U.S. residential real estate market grew steadily in 2013, and I foresee
steady growth in commercial real estate in 2014. It’s commonly known that the
U.S. economy recovers on the back of the real estate industry. In particular,
a low tax environment and low cost of living enhance Texas recovery even
further as major investors and corporations look to our state and neighboring
states for relocation and development opportunities.”
