Overall Results

LREIT completed Q3-2023 with a loss and comprehensive loss of $1.9 million, compared to an income and comprehensive income of $9.0 million during Q3-2022, representing a decrease in income and comprehensive income of $10.8 million. The decrease in income and comprehensive income mainly reflects a decrease from fair value adjustments of $10.8 million and a $1.2 million decrease in rental revenues, partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in property operating costs.

The decrease from fair value adjustments reflects a $0.4 million gain from fair value adjustments during Q3-2023, compared to a $11.2 million gain from fair value adjustments during Q3-2022. The gain from fair value adjustments during Q3-2023 reflects an increase in the carrying value of the Fort McMurray properties segment, which is mainly due to an increase in the normalized revenue considered to be achievable in the Fort McMurray rental market as a result of the favourable occupancy and rental rate trends; partially offset by an unfavourable variance from fair value adjustments of the Other investment properties segment, which is mainly due to an increase in normalized property operating costs. The gain from fair value adjustments recognized during Q3-2022 mainly reflected an increase in the carrying value of the Fort McMurray properties segment, primarily as a result of changes made to key valuation assumptions to incorporate information obtained from external appraisals received during the quarter and in recognition of the favourable occupancy trend.

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