TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- BAM Investments Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BNB) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

BAM Investments Corp. recorded comprehensive income, which consists of net income and other comprehensive income, of $18.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 which, in turn, increased the company's net book value by $0.25 per share to $19.13 per share. Other comprehensive income includes $13.8 million of after-tax unrealized gains on the company's investment portfolio, primarily as a result of a $0.25 per share increase in the market price of the company's Brookfield Asset Management shares to $33.90 per share.
