Notes:
(1) NOI, FFO, OFFO and AFFO are not measures recognized under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS. NOI, FFO, OFFO and AFFO are supplemental measures of a company's performance and management believes that NOI, FFO, OFFO and AFFO are relevant measures of its earnings performance and its ability to pay dividends on the Company's common shares. The IFRS measurement most directly comparable to AFFO is cash flow from operations.
(2) Payout Ratio is calculated using dividends declared per share divided by the basic AFFO per share for the respective periods.
