Partners Value Investments Inc. (the “Company”, TSX: PVF.WT) announced today its financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2023. All amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.

The Company recorded a net loss of $120.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023 compared to net income $489.3 million in the prior year period. Net loss in the current period was primarily driven by significant remeasurement losses associated with the retractable shares of $118.8 million, compared to remeasurement gains of $386.2 million in the prior year period. 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 $1.80 compared to a decrease of $6.30 in the prior year quarter.

Excluding retractable share and warrant liability remeasurement gains and dividends paid on retractable shares, Adjusted Losses for the Company was $9.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to Adjusted Earnings of $38.4 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Losses in the current period were as a result of unfavorable foreign currency movement in the Canadian dollar of which the majority of the Corporation’s liabilities are denominated coupled with higher deferred tax expenses.

As at June 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 $33.65 and $32.63, respectively. As at August 25, 2023, the market prices of a BN and BAM share were $32.48 and $33.23, respectively.
