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

The Partnership recorded net income of $10.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million in the prior year quarter. Net income increased in the current quarter primarily due to investment valuation gains on the Partnership’s other investments portfolio of $16.7 million compared to $5.3 million in the prior year quarter, and lower foreign currency losses, which were partially offset by an increase in income tax expense.

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