Nov 11 (Reuters) - H&R Real Estate Investment Trust HR_u.TO posted a 61 percent increase in third-quarter funds from operations as rental income rose.

Quarterly FFO -- a property measure that strips out the effects of depreciation and other factors from earnings -- was C$67.2 million, or 45 Canadian cents per stapled basic unit, up from last year’s C$41.7 million, or 28 Canadian cents per stapled basic unit.

Adjusted FFO was 37 Canadian cents per stapled basic unit.

H&R, which invests in office, industrial and retail properties in Canada and the United States, said rentals from income properties rose 3 percent to C$152.7 million.

Units of the trust have gained about 11 percent in value since it posted a rise in quarterly FFO in August.

They were down about 2 percent at C$19.59 in afternoon trade on Thursday on the Toronto Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Gowri Jayakumar in Bangalore; Editing by Vinu Pilakkott)
