German real estate firm Deutsche Wohnen AG (DWHHF.PK) Friday reported that its first-half funds from operations, operating result after current interest and taxes or FFO I increased 11% to 220.8 million euros from 198.7 million euros in the previous year. FFO I per share rose just under 7% to 0.63 euro.

In the first half, consolidated Group profit was 672.0 million euros, higher than 647.2 million euros last year.

Contracted rental income grew to 366.5 million euros from prior year's 347.8 million euros. This led to an increase in the operating result, i.e., net operating income, to 283.7 million euros from previous year's 272.9 million euros.
