Non-controlling Interest
Non-controlling interest represents the equity owned by the other joint venture member of a consolidated joint venture. During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the other joint venture member contributed $16,844 to this joint venture which was formed for a specific project. The joint venture did not generate any earnings or losses during the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
Equity Method Investments
Unconsolidated joint ventures are accounted for under the equity method. For these unconsolidated joint ventures, our investment balances are included in other assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and our pro rata share of net income or loss is included in operating income on the condensed consolidated statements of income.
We entered into one joint venture in late December 2021, therefore, the activity for the year ended December 31, 2021 was not material. Our results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 include activity for this joint venture in the table below.
