Partners Value Investments Inc. Announces 2017 Third Quarter Results

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners Value Investments Inc. (the “Company”) announced today its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2017. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

The net income for the quarter was $75 million, an increase from net income of $19 million in the prior year quarter. The increase is primarily driven by the recognition of valuation gains on the change in value of the warrant liability. Adjusting for the warrant liability valuation gain, net loss for the period was $2 million primarily resulting from foreign exchange losses incurred on our Canadian dollar denominated liabilities.

The market price of Brookfield Asset Management (“Brookfield”) Class A common shares increased 5% during the quarter to $41.30 per share.
