Aug 7 (Reuters) - Canada’s InnVest Real Estate Investment Trust INN_u.TO posted a 37 percent drop in quarterly funds from operations, as the ongoing economic meltdown hurt travel demand.
For the second quarter ended June 30, the trust reported funds from operations (FFO) of C$24 million ($22.28 million), or 31 Canadian cents per unit, lower than C$38 million, or 48 Canadian cents per unit, a year-ago.
Six analysts, on average, were expecting FFO of 39 Canadian cents per unit for the quarter, according to Reuters Estimates.
Hotel revenue fell 12 percent to C$156 million, with occupancy dropping 7 percentage points to 61.1 percent.
Revenue per available room (RevPar) decreased 14 percent to C$72.15, driven by the deteriorating economic environment and its impact on discretionary travel demand.
Units of InnVest were down about 3 percent at C$3.75 in morning trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange. ($1=1.077 Canadian dollar) (Reporting by R. Manikandan in Bangalore; Editing by Maju Samuel)
