Partners Value Investments Inc. Announces Q3 2023 Interim Results

Published

TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners Value Investments Inc. (the “Company”, TSX: PVF.WT) announced today its financial results for the nine months ended September 30, 2023. All amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.

The Company recorded net income of $72.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to net income of $343.9 million in the prior year period. Net income was lower in the current period primarily due to lower remeasurement gains on the Company’s retractable shares and warrant liability as well as lower foreign currency gains.  The Company’s retractable common shares are classified as liabilities due to their cash retraction feature. The remeasurement gains or losses in a given period are driven by the respective depreciation or appreciation of the Partnership unit price as the exchangeable shares are recognized at fair value based on the quoted price of the Partnership’s Equity LP units. During the quarter, the Partnership unit price increased by $0.52 compared to a decrease of $3.59 in the prior year quarter.

Excluding retractable share and warrant liability remeasurement gains and dividends paid on retractable shares, Adjusted Earnings for the Company was $29.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to Adjusted Earnings of $78.8 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Earnings were lower in the current period as a result of lower foreign currency gains.

As at September 30, 2023, the market prices of a Brookfield Corporation (the “Corporation”, NYSE/TSX: BN) and Brookfield Asset Management Ltd. (the “Manager”, NYSE/TSX: BAM) share were $31.27 and $33.34, respectively. As at November 16, 2023, the market prices of a BN and BAM share were $34.07 and $33.47, respectively.
