Funds from operations

• Abbreviated FFO. Used by Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) to define the cash flow from their operations. It is calculated by adding Depreciation and Amortization expenses to earnings, and can be represented as Funds From Operations Per Share (FFO/S). FFO/S should be used in lieu of EPS when evaluating REITs and other similar investment trusts.

• Abbreviated FFO. Used by real estate and other investment trusts to define the cash flow from trust operations. It is earnings with depreciation and amortization added back. A similar term increasingly used is Funds Available for Distribution (FAD), which is FFO less capital investments in trust property and the amortization of mortgages.
