Adjusted Funds From Operations
In real estate investment trusts (REITs), a measure of revenue from operations involving liquid transfers, like cash, rather than illiquid assets. In general, the FFO is determined by taking the REIT's earnings and adding back their depreciation and amortization of mortgages, then subtracting regular expenditures used to maintain the REIT's assets. It is widely considered a better measure of an REIT's earnings than its funds from operations.
