Partners Value Investments Inc. Announces 2020 Annual Results TSX Venture Exchange:PVF-WT

4 min read

TORONTO, March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Partners Value Investments Inc. (the “Company”, TSX: PVF.WT) announced today its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2020. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

The Company generated net income of $91 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to a net loss of $129 million in the prior year. The increase in net income was primarily driven by valuation gains on the decrease in value of the warrant liability as a result of the change in market price of Partners Value Investments L.P., foreign currency gains on CAD denominated preferred shares, higher dividend income, and lower investment valuation losses during the year, partially offset by decreased interest income and higher income taxes paid.

The market price of a Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (“Brookfield”) share was $41.27 as at December 31, 2020 (2019 – $38.53).
