ORIGINAL: Partners Value Investments L.P. Announces 2022 Annual Results

2023-03-30 23:26 ET - News Release

TORONTO, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners Value Investments L.P. (the “Partnership”, TSX: PVF.UN TSX:PVF.PR.U) announced today its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $1.1 billion compared to net income of $31 million in the prior year. Net income was higher in the current period primarily due to a special non-cash distribution received from Brookfield Corporation (the “Corporation”, formerly Brookfield Asset Management Inc.). On December 9, 2022, the Corporation completed the distribution of a 25% interest in its asset management business through Brookfield Asset Management Ltd. (the “Manager”), which was incorporated and publicly listed for the purpose of holding an interest in this business. As part of this distribution, the Partnership received one share of the Manager for every four shares held of the Corporation. As a result, the Partnership recognized non-cash dividend income of $1.0 billion from the Corporation in its Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Income of $1.1 billion was attributable to the Equity Limited Partners ($13.78 per Equity LP unit) and income of $6.9 million was attributable to Preferred Limited Partners. Excluding the impact of special distributions received in 2022 and 2021 (December 31, 2021 – $46 million related to the spinoff of Brookfield Reinsurance Ltd.), net income increased by approximately $93 million compared to 2021 due to higher foreign currency gains related to the Partnership’s preferred shares and corporate borrowings and tax recoveries in the current year.

As at December 31, 2022, the market prices of a Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BN) and Manager (NYSE/TSX: BAM) share were $31.46 and $28.67, respectively. As at March 29, 2023, the market prices of a BN and BAM share were $31.19 and $31.39, respectively.

Effective March 31, 2023, Rachel Powell will be replaced by Jason Weckwerth as Chief Financial Officer of the Partnership.
