Brookfield Investments Corporation Announces Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 26, 2014) - Brookfield Investments Corporation (the "company") (TSX VENTURE:BRN.PR.A) reported net loss of $6 million or $0.13 per common share for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared with income of $69 million or $1.38 per common share for the same period in 2013. The decrease in net income relative to the prior period was due to a large amount of disposition gains recorded in the prior year quarter and the recognition of unfavourable foreign currency revaluation in the current quarter. Net income in the prior year included $52 million of disposition gains on the sale of two investments whereas the current quarter included a $3 million realized disposition loss. In addition, the company recorded $16 million of unrealized foreign currency losses in the current quarter, due to negative foreign currency revaluation of non U.S. dollar investments. Net income on a nine-month basis was $110 million in the current year and $217 million in the prior year or $2.20 and $4.35 per share, respectively.

Comprehensive income, which consists of net loss and other comprehensive income, was a loss of $42 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to income of $21 million in the same period of 2013. Other comprehensive loss was $36 million during the quarter, compared to $48 million in the third quarter of 2013. The current period reflects unfavourable market performance of the company's investment portfolio relative to the prior year.
