Brookfield Office Properties Canada earned $234.4-million for its latest quarter, boosted by a gain on the value of its properties.
The real estate trust said the profit amounted to $2.51 per unit for the quarter ended Dec. 31 compared with a loss of $44.1-million or 47 cents per unit a year ago.
Boosting the results was a fair-value gain of $207.4-million, compared with a fair-value loss of $74.3-million in the last three months of 2009.
Revenue for the quarter totalled $109.4, down from $112-million, while funds from operations slipped to $27-million from $32.2-million a year ago.
