Overall Results

LREIT completed Q2-2023 with a loss and comprehensive loss of $1.1 million, compared to a loss and comprehensive loss of $2.8 million during Q2-2022, representing a decrease in loss and comprehensive loss of $1.7 million. The decrease in loss and comprehensive loss mainly reflects a favourable variance from fair value adjustments of $1.8 million and a $1.0 million decrease in property operating costs, partially offset by a $1.1 million decrease in rental revenues from investment properties.

The favourable variance from fair value adjustments reflects a $1.2 million gain from fair value adjustments during Q2-2023, compared to a $0.6 million loss from fair value adjustments during Q2-2022.  The gain in Q2-2023 was primarily due to an increase in the carrying value of the properties located in Fort McMurray, Alberta reflecting an increase in the normalized revenue considered to be achievable as a result of the favourable occupancy and rental rate trends. Losses from fair value adjustments recognized during Q2-2022 mainly reflected an increase in normalized operating cost primarily due to the impact of higher than expected property insurance costs for certain properties within the Fort McMurray properties segment.

The decreases in both property operating costs and rental revenues are primarily attributable to the sales of Laird's Landing, Lakewood Apartments and Westhaven Manor during Q1-2023.
