Financial Highlights

Net income was $707 million in the year 2020, with a $134 million loss attributable to common shareholders ($0.12 per share) and the remaining income attributable to non-controlling interests.

The $4.6 billion decrease in consolidated net income and the $2.9 billion decrease in net income attributable to common shareholders were primarily attributable to:

  • valuation losses of $1.7 billion in its real estate business both on consolidated and equity accounted investment properties mostly within its retail properties;
  • an income tax expense of $837 million compared to $495 million in the prior year. The prior period benefited from the recognition of previously unrecognized tax losses; and
  • higher depreciation expense primarily as a result of recent acquisitions; partially offset by
  • contributions from acquisitions over the last twelve months.

Revenues for the year were $62.8 billion, a decrease of $5.1 billion compared to 2019, primarily due to the impact of the global economic shutdown.

Direct costs decreased by 10% or $5.3 billion compared to a 7% decrease in revenues. The decrease is primarily due to the aforementioned lower volumes at Greenergy and cost saving initiatives across a number of its businesses. These decreases were offset by higher direct costs related to recent acquisitions, net of dispositions, as well as incremental costs associated with organic growth initiatives at its operations.

Other income and gains of $785 million relate primarily to the sale of Nova Cold Logistics ULC (“Nova Cold”)1 in the first quarter, Simply Storage Inc. and Healthscope’s pathology business in the fourth quarter, as well as the partial sale of Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal (“DBCT”)1 in the fourth quarter.

Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $915 million to $5.8 billion due to businesses acquired in the year, as well as the impact of revaluation gains in the fourth quarter of 2019, which increased the current year’s opening balance of its property, plant and equipment (“PP&E”) from which the current year depreciation is determined. These increases were partially offset by the impact of recent dispositions and foreign exchange.

Income tax expense increased by $342 million primarily attributable to the absence of the prior year deferred income tax recovery of $475 million which relates to the recognition of deferred tax assets due to the projected utilization of net operating loss carryforwards.

Q2 2021 Result

August 12, 2021; Brookfield Asset Management Inc announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.9

Nick Goodman, CFO of Brookfield, stated, “The company's business performed very well during the quarter, recording $1.2 billion of distributable earnings. Growth in its asset management franchise, steady returns on its principal investments and continued momentum on its capital recycling initiatives all contributed to the strong quarter. Subsequent to quarter end, the company held the first close of $9 billion for its fourth flagship real estate fund, and its $7 billion founders’ close for its Global Transition Fund, taking total fundraising since last quarter to $24 billion. The company expect the size of these two funds to exceed $30 billion before they close for capital.”

Funds from operations (FFO) and net income in the quarter were strong at $1.6 billion and $2.4 billion, respectively, both very large increases over last year.

The company's distributable earnings continue to show strong growth, recording $1.2 billion for the quarter, and $6.3 billion over the last twelve months, a 108% increase over the comparative period. The strong performance in the quarter is supported by a 49% increase in fee-related earnings, continued carried interest realizations, increased distributions from its principal investments, and disposition gains recognized on its principal investments.

Monetization activity continued during the quarter as the company sold $8 billion of investments, returned $6 billion to clients, and realized $335 million of gross carried interest in the process, taking the total realized since the beginning of the year to more than $1 billion. Investment performance was also very strong in the quarter with its unrealized carried interest balance, not recorded in its financial accounts, increasing to $6.2 billion.

Fee-bearing capital increased to $325 billion during the quarter, an increase of approximately $48 billion over the last twelve months, leading to a $334 million increase in fee-related earnings over the same period.

The company recorded $1.5 billion of realized carried interest into income over the last twelve months, including $335 million during the quarter.

Annualized fee revenues and target carried interest now stand at a run-rate of $6.7 billion.

As at June 30, 2021, the company had $78 billion of capital available to deploy into new investments.

Brookfield Asset Management and Elion Partners Announce $1 Billion Strategic Partnership 10

September 23, 2021; Brookfield Asset Management (“Brookfield”) and Elion Partners (“Elion”), a vertically integrated industrial specialist and sponsor of institutional real estate vehicles, today announced a $1 billion strategic partnership expanding Brookfield’s Real Estate Secondaries’ logistics portfolio across core infill markets.

Brookfield recapitalized Elion Logistics Park 55 (“ELP 55”), a Chicago master-planned industrial park with the potential to develop approximately $1 billion of industrial real estate. The project includes five existing Class A industrial assets totaling four million square feet that are 100% leased, as well as the potential to develop up to 15 million square feet of additional industrial properties going forward. The master-planned logistics park is located adjacent to the BNSF railway, offers numerous tenant amenities including essential travel and repair services, and benefits from tax increment financing. Park Madison Partners acted as the exclusive capital advisor for recapitalization.

“Industrial logistics real estate continues to experience positive momentum, and now is the logical time to seek long-term capital,” said Juan DeAngulo, Managing Partner at Elion. “This partnership structure and Brookfield’s support will enable Elion to fulfill the long-term development plans for ELP 55.”

“Brookfield Asset Management is excited about the partnership with Elion and the opportunity to gain exposure to high-quality industrial assets in supply-constrained markets with significant potential upside,” said Chris Reilly, Managing Partner at Brookfield.

The investment also included an $80 million equity commitment to Elion’s latest affiliated value-added fund, Elion Real Estate Fund V, which held its final closing last month achieving its hard cap of $500 million. A majority of Fund V’s portfolio was prespecified upon Brookfield’s commitment, representing more than 3.2 million square feet of logistics real estate across infill coastal markets.

Brookfield, one of the world's largest investors in real estate with over $200 billion in AUM, launched its Real Estate Secondaries business a year ago. The strategy is focused on GP investors who are looking for flexibility and liquidity in managing their private market investments.
