Non-IFRS Financial Measures
Net Operating Income ("NOI") is a measure of operating performance based on income generated from the properties of the REIT. Management considers this non-IFRS measure to be an important measure of the REIT's operating performance.
Funds from operations ("FFO") is a measure of operating performance based on the funds generated from the business of the REIT before reinvestment or provision for other capital needs. Management considers this non-GAAP measure to be an important measure of the REIT's operating performance.
Adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") is calculated as FFO subject to certain adjustments.
Management considers AFFO to be an important performance measure to determine the sustainability of future distributions paid to holders of Units after provision for maintenance capital expenditures. AFFO should not be interpreted as an indicator of cash generated from operating activities as it does not consider changes in working capital.
NOI, FFO and AFFO do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and should not be construed as alternatives to profit/loss, cash flow from operating activities or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS. Such measures as computed by the REIT may differ from similar measures as reported by other trusts or companies in similar or different industries.
Neither the TSXV nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSXV) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
