Prologis Inc. on Monday bumped up its financial and operational expectations for the year.

The owner of warehouses said it now expects net earnings of $2.80 to $2.90 a share during 2021, up from $2.36 to $2.52 a share.

Funds from operations on after adjustments are expected to range from $3.96 to $4.02 a share, up 1.5% from an earlier forecast at the midpoint. FFO is a profit metric that excludes some costs that are important for property owners, such as depreciation.

Average occupancy at Prologis is now expected to range from 96.25% to 96.75%, up from 95.50% to 96.5%.

"Given the strength of our results and the market, we are taking up our guidance metrics across the board," said Prologis Finance Chief Thomas Olinger.
