FFO, NFFO, and AFFO Projections. We modestly adjusted our projections for Funds From Operations, Normalized Funds From Operations, and Adjusted Funds From Operations. Our prior estimates reflected a larger estimate for depreciation and amortization and other than we are now using. We are now projecting third quarter FFO at $0.31 per share, versus a prior $0.36, NFFO of $0.31 versus $0.37, and AFFO of $0.31 versus a prior $0.32.
No Change in Business Outlook. We are not currently expecting any major change in the business environment and our projections for revenue and EPS remain unchanged. ICE ADP has risen from below 20,000 in the spring to nearly 26,000 in September, while Southwest Border encounters exceeded 200,000/mth since March and likely will be up over 32% from the full fiscal year 2021.
