Brookfield Business Partners; Brookfield Business Corporation: Brookfield Business Partners Reports Third Quarter 2023 Results

BROOKFIELD, NEWS, Nov. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Business Partners (NYSE: BBUC, BBU; TSX: BBUC, BBU.UN) announced today financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2023.

"We had a strong third quarter and are pleased with our results," said Cyrus Madon, CEO of Brookfield Business Partners. "We generated record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA and reached an agreement to sell an interest in Everise, our technology services operation, at a valuation of 3.5x our original investment. Our focus is on progressing initiatives to support our growth, including the sale of Westinghouse which we expect to close imminently."

Net income (loss) per limited partnership unit2$(0.20)$(0.18) $(0.08)$0.54
Adjusted EBITDA3$655 $611 $1,883 $1,627


Net loss attributable to unitholders for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $44 million ($0.20 loss per limited partnership unit) compared to net loss of $41 million ($0.18 loss per limited partnership unit) in the prior period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $655 million compared to $611 million in the prior period, reflecting increased contribution from our Business Services and Infrastructure Services segments.

Operational Update

The following table presents Adjusted EBITDA by segment:

Corporate and Other (29) (35) (92) (100)
Adjusted EBITDA$655 $611 $1,883 $1,627


Our Business Services segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $238 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to $213 million for the same period in 2022. Results benefited from increased contribution from our residential mortgage insurer and our dealer software and technology services operation. Current period results included contribution from our rental car services operation which we acquired in October 2022.

Our Infrastructure Services segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $228 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to $205 million during the same period in 2022. Increased contribution from modular building leasing services and improved performance at work access services was partially offset by the impact of reduced ownership at our lottery services operation.

Our Industrials segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $218 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to $228 million during the same period in 2022. Strong performance at our advanced energy storage operation was offset by reduced contribution from graphite electrode operations and our Western Canadian energy related operations.

The following table presents Adjusted EFO4 by segment:

Infrastructure Services 106 102 280 365
Industrials 152 131 377 354
Corporate and Other (93) (46) (258) (111)


Adjusted EFO for the three months ended September 30, 2023 reflected increased contribution from our Industrials and Infrastructure Services segments offset by the impact of higher current tax in our Business Services segment and higher interest expense. Adjusted EFO in the current period included $70 million of net gains primarily related to the sale of the majority of our automotive aftermarket parts remanufacturing operation and public securities.

Strategic Initiatives

  • Technology Services Operation
    In October 2023 we reached an agreement to sell a portion of our interest in our technology services operation at a valuation of approximately 3.5x what we paid for the business just over two years ago. Our share of proceeds from the sale is expected to be approximately $120 million, representing an approximate 2x realized multiple on our investment and we will continue to hold a 17% ownership interest in the business. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2024.
  • Unit Repurchase Program
    For the three months ended September 30, 2023 we repurchased 54,264 of Brookfield Business Partners L.P. units under our normal course issuer bid (NCIB).

Liquidity

We ended the quarter with approximately $1.4 billion of liquidity at the corporate level including $133 million of cash and liquid securities and $1.3 billion of availability on our term credit facilities.

Distribution

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution in the amount of $0.0625 per unit, payable on December 29, 2023 to unitholders of record as at the close of business on November 30, 2023.

Additional Information

The Board has reviewed and approved this news release, including the summarized unaudited consolidated financial statements contained herein.

Brookfield Business Partners' Letter to Unitholders and the Supplemental Information are available on our website https://bbu.brookfield.com under Reports & Filings.

Notes:

  1. Attributable to limited partnership unitholders, general partnership unitholders, redemption-exchange unitholders, special limited partnership unitholders and BBUC exchangeable shareholders.
  2. Net income (loss) per limited partnership unit calculated as net income (loss) attributable to limited partners divided by the average number of limited partnership units outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 which were 74.6 million and 74.6 million, respectively (September 30, 2022: 74.6 million and 75.5 million, respectively).
  3. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure of operating performance presented as net income and equity accounted income at the partnership's economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments, respectively, excluding the impact of interest income (expense), net, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, gains (losses) on acquisitions/dispositions, net, transaction costs, restructuring charges, revaluation gains or losses, impairment expenses or reversals, other income or expenses, and preferred equity distributions. The partnership's economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments excludes amounts attributable to non-controlling interests consistent with how the partnership determines net income attributable to non-controlling interests in its unaudited interim condensed consolidated statements of operating results. The partnership believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a comprehensive understanding of the ability of its businesses to generate recurring earnings which allows users to better understand and evaluate the underlying financial performance of the partnership's operations and excludes items that the partnership believes do not directly relate to revenue earning activities and are not normal, recurring items necessary for business operations. Please refer to the reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA included elsewhere in this release.
  4. Adjusted EFO is the partnership's segment measure of profit or loss and is presented as net income and equity accounted income at the partnership's economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries and equity accounted investments, respectively, excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization expense, deferred income taxes, transaction costs, restructuring charges, unrealized revaluation gains or losses, impairment expenses or reversals and other income or expense items that are not directly related to revenue generating activities. The partnership's economic ownership interest in consolidated subsidiaries excludes amounts attributable to non-controlling interests consistent with how the partnership determines net income attributable to non-controlling interests in its unaudited interim condensed consolidated statements of operating results. In order to provide additional insight regarding the partnership's operating performance over the lifecycle of an investment, Adjusted EFO includes the impact of preferred equity distributions and realized disposition gains or losses recorded in net income, other comprehensive income, or directly in equity, such as ownership changes. Adjusted EFO does not include legal and other provisions that may occur from time to time in the partnership's operations and that are one-time or non-recurring and not directly tied to the partnership's operations, such as those for litigation or contingencies. Adjusted EFO includes expected credit losses and bad debt allowances recorded in the normal course of the partnership's operations. Adjusted EFO allows the partnership to evaluate its segments on the basis of return on invested capital generated by its operations and allows the partnership to evaluate the performance of its segments on a levered basis.
  5. On January 1, 2023, our residential mortgage insurer adopted a new accounting standard, IFRS 17. Our comparative period information has been adjusted to present the results of our residential mortgage insurer measured in accordance with IFRS 17. The new IFRS 17 accounting standard has no impact on the fundamental economics or cash flows of the business. Total earnings recognized over the duration of an insurance contract are unchanged, however the timing of revenues and earnings is impacted by the new IFRS 17 measurement model. Compared to the previous accounting standard, the recognition of revenue in accordance with IFRS 17 has more sensitivity to changes in macroeconomic variables and will generally be slower except in periods of rapidly increasing home prices. Losses on claims will be largely unchanged with the adoption of IFRS 17, but loss ratios will be higher during periods of slower revenue recognition in accordance with IFRS 17.

Although we believe that our anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements and information are based upon reasonable assumptions and expectations, investors and other readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements and information because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond our control, which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Brookfield Business Partners to differ materially from anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and information.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated or implied by forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: general economic conditions and risks relating to the economy, including unfavorable changes in interest rates, foreign exchange rates, inflation and volatility in the financial markets; global equity and capital markets and the availability of equity and debt financing and refinancing within these markets; strategic actions including our ability to complete dispositions and achieve the anticipated
benefits therefrom, including the anticipated sale of Westinghouse; the ability to complete and effectively integrate acquisitions into existing operations and the ability to attain expected benefits; changes in accounting policies and methods used to report financial condition (including uncertainties associated with critical accounting assumptions and estimates); the ability to appropriately manage human capital; the effect of applying future accounting changes; business competition; operational and reputational risks; technological change; changes in government regulation and legislation within the countries in which we operate; governmental investigations; litigation; changes in tax laws; ability to collect amounts owed; catastrophic events, such as earthquakes, hurricanes and pandemics/epidemics including COVID-19; the possible impact of international conflicts, wars and related developments including Russia's invasion of Ukraine, terrorist acts and cyber terrorism; and other risks and factors detailed from time to time in our documents filed with the securities regulators in Canada and the United States including those set forth in the "Risk Factors" section in our 2022 Annual Report filed on Form 20-F.

Statements relating to "reserves" are deemed to be forward-looking statements as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the reserves described herein can be profitably produced in the future. We qualify any and all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary factors.

We caution that the foregoing list of important factors that may affect future results is not exhaustive. When relying on our forward-looking statements and information, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and potential events. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether written or oral, that may be as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Cautionary Statement Regarding the Use of Non-IFRS Measures

This news release contains references to Non-IFRS measures. Adjusted EBITDA is not a generally accepted accounting measure under IFRS and therefore may differ from definitions used by other entities. We believe this is a useful supplemental measure that may assist investors in assessing the financial performance of Brookfield Business Partners and its subsidiaries. However, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS.

References to Brookfield Business Partners are to Brookfield Business Partners L.P. together with its subsidiaries, controlled affiliates and operating entities. Unitholders' results include limited partnership units, redemption-exchange units, general partnership units, BBUC exchangeable shares and special limited partnership units. More detailed information on certain references made in this news release will be available in our Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our interim report for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023 furnished on Form 6-K.
