Partners Value Investments L.P.

TORONTO, March 28, 2024 (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, 2023. All amounts are stated in U.S. dollars.

The Partnership recorded net income of $15 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to net income of $1.1 billion in the prior year. The decrease in income was primarily attributable to the absence of a one-time special distribution received from Brookfield Corporation (the “Corporation”) in the prior year and lower foreign currency gains and tax recoveries. Income of $6 million was attributable to the Equity Limited Partners, $8 million was attributable to Preferred Limited Partners, and $1 million attributable to non-controlling interests. The financial results reflect the impact of the re-organization on November 24, 2023.

As at December 31, 2023, the market prices of a Brookfield Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BN) and Brookfield Asset Management Ltd. (the “Manager”, NYSE/TSX: BAM) share were $40.12 and $40.17, respectively. As at March 27, 2024, the market prices of a BN and BAM share were $41.58 and $41.80, respectively.
