Nov 7 (Reuters) - RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust REI_u.TO reported a 14 percent rise in quarterly funds from operations, helped partly by gains from better valuation of its properties.
The FFO, a key measure of profitability for real estate companies, rose to C$97 million, or 37 Canadian cents a unit, in the third quarter from C$85 million, or 35 Canadian cents a unit, a year earlier.
The REIT said net income rose by C$112 million to C$168 million from last year.
Units of the Toronto-based company closed at C$24.92 on Friday on the Toronto Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Maneesha Tiwari in Bangalore; Editing by Maju Samuel)
