TORONTO,– Timbercreek Financial (TSX: TF) (the “Company”) announced today its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 (“Q1 2019”).
“It was a solid start to 2019 and a reasonably active period during what is typically a slower quarter for the company from an originations perspective,” said Cameron Goodnough, CEO of Timbercreek Financial. “We experienced modest margin compression in the quarter, but are seeing signs of rates normalizing in the multi-residential apartment market. Our team continues to evaluate attractive opportunities in all of our key markets, ensuring we find the right transactions for the portfolio with a key emphasis on income-producing properties in urban markets.”

The Company prepares and releases financial statements in accordance with IFRS. As a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS, the Company discloses certain financial measures not recognized under IFRS and that do not have standard meanings prescribed by IFRS (collectively the “non-IFRS measures”). These non-IFRS measures are further described in Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) available on SEDAR. The Company has presented such non-IFRS measures because the Manager believes they are relevant measures of the Company’s ability to earn and distribute cash dividends to shareholders and to evaluate its performance. These non-IFRS measures should not be construed as alternatives to total net income and comprehensive income or cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of the Company’s performance.
