ORANGE COUNTY, CA-Pacific Gulf Properties Inc. (NYSE:PAG) reported third-quarter earnings of $17,103,000 or $0.71 a share. Those earnings, known as Funds From Operations (FFO), are a 15% increase per share over the same quarter in 1999.

For the first three quarters of the year, the Newport Beach-based REIT’s FFO increased 13% over the first nine months of last year to $49.254 million. The gain in both cases was attributed mainly to same-store rents on the REIT’s portfolio of industrial and multifamily properties, including rental housing for seniors.

For the first nine months of the year net operating income was $78 million on revenue of $102 million, also a 13% increase from a year ago.

During the third quarter PAG completed industrial facility leases totaling 736,000 sf, generating a 20% increase in effective rents over ending rates on expired leases. Industrial properties generated 82% of the REIT’s net operating income for both the quarter and the first nine months of the year. Industrial same-store net operating income increased 9% over 1999, while multifamily same-store net operating income increased 16% from a year ago.

As of September 30, the occupancy rate for both the industrial and multifamily properties in the REIT’s portfolio was 97%.
