Dexus has adopted Funds from Operations (FFO) as its underlying earnings measure which has been defined in accordance with the guidelines established by the Property Council of Australia for its reporting with effect from 1 July 2014.
In accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, net profit includes a number of non-cash adjustments including fair value movements in asset and liability values. FFO is a financial measure of real estate operating performance and is determined by adjusting net profit after finance costs and taxes for certain items which are non-cash, unrealised or capital in nature.
The Directors consider FFO to be a measure that reflects the underlying performance of the Group.
