Partners Value Investments Inc. Announces Q2 2022 Interim Results

TORONTO, Aug. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Partners Value Investments Inc. ((the “Company”, TSX:PVF) announced today its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2022. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

The Company generated net income of $489.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to a net loss of $575.9 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in net income was primarily due to a remeasurement gain of $386.2 million during the quarter relating to the Company’s retractable common shares compared to remeasurement losses of $479.1 million in the prior year quarter. These shares are classified as liabilities due to their exchangeable feature equivalent to a Partnership unit, therefore the remeasurement gains or losses in a given period are driven by the respective depreciation or appreciation of the Partnership unit price.

Excluding remeasurement losses and warrant liability valuations, Adjusted Earnings was $38.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to adjusted earnings of $28.4 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Earnings is higher in the current year period due to foreign currency gains and tax recoveries, partially offset by lower investment income from dividends. Dividend income was lower in the current period due to the receipt of Brookfield Asset Management Reinsurance Partners Ltd. shares valued at $46 million as a dividend-in-kind from Brookfield Asset Management in the prior year period.

The market price of a Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (“Brookfield”) share was $44.47 per share at June 30, 2022 (December 2021 – $60.38). The market price of a Brookfield share was $51.02 on August 22, 2022.
