TORONTO, May 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners Value Investments Inc. (the “Company”, TSX: PVF.WT) announced today its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

The Company recorded Adjusted Earnings of $9.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to an Adjusted Loss of $2.4 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Earnings increased in the current quarter due to investment valuation gains of $16.7 million compared to $5.3 million in the prior year quarter, combined with lower foreign currency losses, and was partially offset by an increase in income tax expense.

The Company generated net income of $31.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $11.6 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in net income was primarily due to a warrant liability valuation gain of $43.5 million compared to $13.9 million in the prior year quarter, offset by remeasurement losses of $16.7 million relating to the Company’s retractable common shares. The remeasurement losses are the result of an increase in the weighted average price of a Partnership unit which is used to determine the fair value of the retractable common share liability.

The market price of a Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (“Brookfield”) share was $56.57 per share at March 31, 2022 (December 2021 – $60.38).
