EDMONTON, Jan. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Imperial Equities Inc. (TSX-V:IEI) has reported that Fiscal 2012 is the first year that Imperial Equities began reporting under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). All real estate assets were valued utilizing fair market values as opposed to the traditional depreciated cost method. At September 30, 2012 the fair market value of Imperial's real estate assets exceed $100 million.
"For a company with depreciating assets, reporting under GAAP rules was clearly a distortion of the real value of its assets. With IFRS we now report our properties at fair market values utilizing data as provided by management and independent third party appraisers. For more than a year now Imperial Equities began the transition to IFRS and has initiated and received independent AACI third party appraisals on over 80% of its portfolio. Any new acquisitions and build to suit properties will, as a matter of course, have its market value determined in a manner consistent with the methods used by independent appraisers", said Sine Chadi, President and CEO of Imperial Equities.
"We are pleased to report that at September 30, 2012 our real estate assets, which now reflect their market value, are more appropriately recorded at $101,440,458".
