Partners Value Split Corp. Announces 2022 Annual Results
TORONTO, March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners Value Split Corp. (the “Company” TSX: PVS.PR.F, PVS.PR.G, PVS.PR.H, PVS.PR.I, PVS.PR.J, PVS.PR.K) announced today that the net asset value per unit was $95.95 as at December 31, 2022 (December 31, 2021 - $169.52). All amounts are in US dollars.
Income available for distribution for the year ended December 31, 2022 was $1.0 billion compared to $103 million in the prior year. 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 Company received one share of the Manager for every four shares held of the Corporation. As a result, the Company recognized non-cash dividend income of $957 million from the Corporation in its Statements of Comprehensive Income.
The comprehensive loss of $2.5 billion related to the decrease in the share price of the Corporation shares during the year along with the broader market. 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.
Net asset value per unit consists of one preferred share and one capital share. The net asset value per unit is posted monthly on our website at www.partnersvaluesplit.com.
Effective March 31, 2023, Rachel Powell was replaced by Jason Weckwerth as Chief Financial Officer of the Company.
