Partners Value Investments LP Announces 2018 Third Quarter Results

Partners Value Investments LP Announces 2018 Third Quarter Results

TORONTO, November 29, 2018 – Partners Value Investments LP (the “Partnership”) announced today its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2018. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

Partners Value Investments LP (the “Partnership”) recorded an increase in net book value during the third quarter of $318 million ($3.60 per unit) to $3.4 billion ($38.10 per unit). The increase is due to an increase in the quoted market price of Brookfield Asset Management common shares, investment valuation gains, and investment income earned on the Partnerships investment portfolio.

The net income for the quarter was $2 million, of which a loss of $3 million was attributable to the Equity Limited Partners ($0.04 per Equity LP unit), down from net income of $2 million in the prior year quarter. The net loss was primarily a result of foreign currency losses resulting from the weakening United States dollar, and income tax expense incurred due to large gains realized as a result of selling various portfolio securities during the third quarter.
