Brookfield Investments Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 28, 2014) - Brookfield Investments Corporation (the "company") (TSX VENTURE:BRN.PR.A) reported net income of $26 million or $0.53 per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2014 compared with $22 million, or $0.45 per common share for the same period in 2013. The increase in net income in the current period was due to a higher level of dividends received on the company's investment portfolio and positive foreign currency revaluation, partially offset by a higher level of forest products income recorded in the prior year. Net income on a six month basis was $116 million and $148 million in the current and prior year or $2.33 and $2.97 per share, respectively.

Comprehensive income, which consists of net income and other comprehensive income, was $113 million compared to loss of $441 million in the same period of 2013. Other comprehensive income was $87 million during the quarter, compared to a loss of $463 million in the second quarter of 2013. The current period benefited from favourable market performance of the company's investment portfolio relative to the prior year.
