Revenue from real estate properties includes contracted rent from tenants along with recoveries of property expenses. Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2019, decreased 1.4% to $66.4 million from $67.3 million for the same period in 2018. This decrease is primarily due to reduced recoveries of property taxes for the Trust's properties in Calgary resulting from reductions processed by the city.

Property operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2019, increased 7.2% to $15.7 million from $14.7 million for the same period in 2018. This increase is primarily due to expenses related to new GLA from completion of development projects in the Trust's enclosed regional centres.

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019, increased 3.9% to $14.5 million from $14.0 million for the same period in 2018 due to $0.2 million in interest expense incurred on lease liabilities from the new IFRS 16 "Leases" guidance, as well as higher short-term variable rates on a year-over-year basis.

Net Operating Income, Funds from Operations

This press release and accompanying financial information make reference to net operating income and funds from operations on a total and per unit basis.
