The Carlyle Group Announces First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

  • $0.47 per common unit in Distributable Earnings in Q1 2013, or $168 million on a pre-tax basis
  • $4.9 billion in new capital raised in Q1 2013 and $16.9 billion raised over the past twelve months
  • 7% portfolio appreciation in Q1 2013, driving Economic Net Income of $394 million on a pre-tax basis
  • $4.1 billion in realized proceeds in Q1 2013, with $19.1 billion realized over the past twelve months
  • Declared quarterly distribution of $0.16 per common unit for Q1 2013
  • U.S. GAAP net income attributable to The Carlyle Group L.P. of $34 million, or $0.66 per common unit on a diluted basis, in Q1 2013

Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group L.P. (NASDAQ: CG) today reported its unaudited results for the first quarter of 2013, which ended on March 31, 2013.

David M. Rubenstein, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Carlyle, said, “Our first quarter results continue to demonstrate strength in the Carlyle Engine. Fundraising was particularly strong, with $5 billion in new capital raised, and we generated $4 billion in realized proceeds. We continue to invest in Carlyle’s growing operational capabilities, notably the build-out of our international energy team, the launch of our new business development corporation, and an expanded retail strategy.”

William E. Conway, Jr., Co-Chief Executive Officer of Carlyle, said, “Our carry funds had a strong showing, appreciating 7% during the quarter, and our Global Market Strategies business continued to grow and perform well across all metrics. Distributable Earnings were solid and ENI more than doubled quarter over quarter. Our $142 million in realized net performance fees shows how our product diversity and geographic scope deliver results. We are focused on the long-term growth and profitability of the firm, which we believe will benefit our fund and public investors alike.”

U.S. GAAP results for Q1 2013 included income before provision for income taxes of $452 million and net income attributable to the common unitholders through The Carlyle Group L.P. of $34 million, or net income per common unit of $0.66 on a diluted basis. Total balance sheet assets were $32.7 billion as of March 31, 2013.

First Quarter Distribution

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution of $0.16 per common unit to holders of record at the close of business on May 20, 2013, payable on May 31, 2013.

The Carlyle Group Distribution Policy

As further discussed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, Carlyle currently anticipates that it will cause Carlyle Holdings to make quarterly distributions to its partners, including The Carlyle Group L.P.’s wholly owned subsidiaries, that will enable The Carlyle Group L.P. to pay a quarterly distribution of $0.16 per common unit for each of the first three quarters of each year, and, for the fourth quarter of each year, to pay a distribution of at least $0.16 per common unit, that, taken together with the prior quarterly distributions in respect of that year, represents its share, net of taxes and amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement, of Carlyle’s Distributable Earnings in excess of the amount determined by the General Partner to be necessary or appropriate to provide for the conduct of its business, to make appropriate investments in its business and its funds or to comply with applicable law or any of its financing agreements. Carlyle anticipates that the aggregate amount of its distributions for most years will be less than its Distributable Earnings for that year due to these funding requirements. The declaration and payment of any distributions is at the sole discretion of the General Partner, which may change the distribution policy at any time.

The Carlyle Engine

Carlyle evaluates the underlying performance of its business on four key metrics known as the Carlyle Engine: funds raised, equity invested, carry fund returns and realized proceeds for fund investors. The table below highlights the results of these metrics for Q1 2013, year-to-date (YTD) and for the last twelve months (LTM)1.

               
Funds Raised Equity Invested
Q1 $4.9 billion Q1 $2.5 billion
YTD: $4.9 bn LTM: $16.9 bn YTD: $2.5 bn LTM: $8.8 bn
           
Realized Proceeds Carry Fund Returns
Q1 $4.1 billion Q1 7%
YTD: $4.1 bn LTM: $19.1 bn YTD: 7% LTM: 11%
 
Note: Equity Invested and Realized Proceeds reflect carry funds only.
 

During Q1 2013, Carlyle generated net realized proceeds of $4.1 billion from 128 different investments across 35 carry funds. Carlyle deployed $2.5 billion of equity in Q1 2013 in 84 new or follow-on investments across 19 carry funds. Carlyle realized proceeds of $19.1 billion and invested $8.8 billion on an LTM basis.

Distributable Earnings were $678 million on an LTM basis, which is 11% lower than the prior rolling twelve month period. A realized investment loss on a balance sheet investment in our Real Assets segment had a ($15) million impact on Distributable Earnings, equivalent to ($0.03) per common unit on a post-tax basis.
    • Fee Related Earnings were $36 million for Q1 2013 and increased by $2 million from $34 million in Q1 2012 due to an increase in Fee-earning AUM and our acquisition of an equity interest in NGP Energy Capital Management, offset by higher fundraising costs and fee and basis step downs of several funds exiting their investment periods. Fee Related Earnings were $172 million on an LTM basis, up 49% compared with the prior rolling twelve month period.
    • Realized Net Performance Fees were $142 million for Q1 2013 compared to $143 million in Q1 2012.

Realized Net Performance Fees were $501 million on an LTM basis, which was 17% lower than the prior rolling twelve month period.
    • Realized Investment Income/(Loss) was ($9) million in Q1 2013, driven by the ($15) million realized investment loss on a balance sheet investment in our Real Assets segment.
  • Economic Net Income (ENI): $394 million for Q1 2013 and $737 million on an LTM basis
    • Economic Net Income was $394 million for Q1 2013 and $737 million on an LTM basis. On a post-tax basis, Carlyle generated $1.02 in ENI per Adjusted Unit for Q1 2013.

Corporate Private Equity and Global Market Strategies carry funds were both up 9% while Real Assets carry funds were up 3% compared to the end of Q4 2012. Carry fund appreciation was 11% on an LTM basis, compared to 15% in the prior rolling twelve month period.

  • Distributable Earnings (DE): $11 million for Q1 2013 and $92 million on an LTM basis. The following components impacted Distributable Earnings in Q1 2013:
    • Fee Related Earnings were $9 million in Q1 2013 ($13 million on an LTM basis), compared to ($1) million in Q1 2012. The increase was largely driven by the acquisition of an equity interest in NGP Energy Capital Management, which closed on December 20, 2012.
    • Realized Net Performance Fees were $16 million for Q1 2013 ($93 million on an LTM basis), compared to $22 million for Q1 2012.
    • Realized Investment Income/(Loss) of ($13) million was driven by the realization of a ($15) million investment loss in a real estate investment that was originally reserved in Q4 2012. This negatively impacted Distributable Earnings per common unit by ($0.03).
  • Economic Net Income (ENI): $42 million for Q1 2013

  • Total Assets Under Management (AUM): $40.3 billion as of Q1 2013
    • Total AUM increased 25% versus Q1 2012, driven largely by the acquisition of an equity interest in NGP Energy Capital Management, partially offset by distributions.
    • Fee-earning AUM of $29.4 billion was up 29% versus Q1 2012, with the increase driven largely by NGP Energy Capital Management, partially offset by distributions and step-downs in basis for funds at the end of their original investment period.

  • On-balance sheet investments attributable to unitholders of $291 million, excluding the equity investment by Carlyle in NGP Energy Capital Management.
  • Net Accrued Performance Fees attributable to unitholders of $1,437 million. These performance fees are comprised of Gross Accrued Performance Fees of $2,622 million less $56 million in accrued giveback obligation and $1,129 million in accrued performance fee compensation and non-controlling interest.
  • Loans payable and senior notes totaling $923 million. During Q1 2013, indirect subsidiaries of The Carlyle Group L.P. issued $900 million in aggregate principal amount of 10-year and 30-year senior notes. Carlyle used the net proceeds to repay the outstanding borrowings of $386 million under the revolving credit facility of its senior credit facility and $475 million of its term loan ($25 million remains outstanding under the term loan as of March 31, 2013). The senior notes were issued at a discount of approximately $2 million, which will be recognized and increase the liability over the term of the notes.

(1) The data presented herein that provides "inception to date" performance results of our segments relates to the period following the formation of the first fund within each segment. For our Corporate Private Equity segment our first fund was formed in 1990. For our Real Assets segment our first fund was formed in 1997. For our Global Market Strategies segment, CSP II and CEMOF I were formed in June 2007 and December 2010, respectively.
(2) Represents the original cost of all capital called for investments since inception of the fund.
(3) Represents all realized proceeds combined with remaining fair value, before management fees, expenses and carried interest.
(4) Multiple of invested capital ("MOIC") represents total fair value, before management fees, expenses and carried interest, divided by cumulative invested capital.
(5) An investment is considered realized when the investment fund has completely exited, and ceases to own an interest in, the investment. An investment is considered partially realized when the total amount of proceeds received in respect of such investment, including dividends, interest or other distributions and/or return of capital, represents at least 85% of invested capital and such investment is not yet fully realized. Because part of our value creation strategy involves pursuing best exit alternatives, we believe information regarding Realized/Partially Realized MOIC and Gross IRR, when considered together with the other investment performance metrics presented, provides investors with meaningful information regarding our investment performance by removing the impact of investments where significant realization activity has not yet occurred. Realized/Partially Realized MOIC and Gross IRR have limitations as measures of investment performance, and should not be considered in isolation. Such limitations include the fact that these measures do not include the performance of earlier stage and other investments that do not satisfy the criteria provided above. The exclusion of such investments will have a positive impact on Realized/Partially Realized MOIC and Gross IRR in instances when the MOIC and Gross IRR in respect of such investments are less than the aggregate MOIC and Gross IRR. Our measurements of Realized/Partially Realized MOIC and Gross IRR may not be comparable to those of other companies that use similarly titled measures. We do not present Realized/Partially Realized performance information separately for funds that are still in the investment period because of the relatively insignificant level of realizations for funds of this type. However, to the extent such funds have had realizations, they are included in the Realized/Partially Realized performance information presented for Total Corporate Private Equity and Total Real Assets.
(6) Fully Invested funds are past the expiration date of the investment period as defined in the respective limited partnership agreement. In instances where a successor fund has had its first capital call, the predecessor fund is categorized as fully invested.
(7) Gross Internal Rate of Return ("Gross IRR") represents the annualized IRR for the period indicated on Limited Partner invested capital based on contributions, distributions and unrealized value before management fees, expenses and carried interest.
(8) Net Internal Rate of Return ("Net IRR") represents the annualized IRR for the period indicated on Limited Partner invested capital based on contributions, distributions and unrealized value after management fees, expenses and carried interest.
(9) Aggregate includes the following funds: CP I, CMG, CVP I, CVP II, CEVP, CETP I, CAVP I, CAVP II, CAGP III, CUSGF III and Mexico.
(10) Includes co-investments, prefund investments and certain other stand-alone investments arranged by us.
(11) The Gross IRR and Net IRR for CEOF I are not meaningful as the investment period commenced May 2011.
(12) Aggregate includes the following funds: MENA, CSABF, CETP II, CBPF, CSSAF and CPF I.
(13) For purposes of aggregation, funds that report in foreign currency have been converted to U.S. dollars at the reporting period spot rate.
(14) Aggregate includes the following funds: CRP I, CRP II, CAREP I, CAREP II, Energy I and Renew I.
(15) Aggregate includes the following fund: CRCP I.
(16) Represents the original cost of investments net of investment level recallable proceeds which is adjusted to reflect recyclability of invested capital for the purpose of calculating the fund MOIC.
(17) Gross IRR and Net IRR for CEMOF I are not meaningful as the investment period commenced in December 2010.
(18) Includes private equity and mezzanine primary fund investments, secondary fund investments and co-investments originated by the AlpInvest team. Excluded from the performance information shown are a) investments that were not originated by AlpInvest and b) Direct Investments, which was spun off from AlpInvest in 2005. As of March 31, 2013, these excluded investments represent $0.6 billion of AUM.
(19) Fully Committed funds are past the expiration date of the commitment period as defined in the respective limited partnership agreement.
(20) To exclude the impact of FX, all foreign currency cash flows have been converted to Euro at the reporting period spot rate.
(21) Aggregate includes Main Fund I - Co-Investments, Main Fund I - Mezzanine Investments, AlpInvest CleanTech Funds and funds which are not included as part of a main fund.
(22) Gross IRR and Net IRR are not meaningful as commitment periods commenced in Q3 2012.
(23) Represents the U.S. dollar equivalent balance translated at the spot rate as of period end.

The Carlyle Group L.P.

Non-GAAP Financial Information and Other Key Terms

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Carlyle discloses in this press release the following financial measures that are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America:

  • Economic net income or “ENI,” represents segment net income which excludes the impact of income taxes, acquisition-related items including amortization of acquired intangibles and contingent consideration taking the form of earn-outs, charges associated with equity-based compensation issued in Carlyle’s initial public offering or in acquisitions or strategic investments, corporate actions and infrequently occurring or unusual events. Carlyle believes the exclusion of these items provides investors with a meaningful indication of its core operating performance. For segment reporting purposes, revenues and expenses, and accordingly segment net income, are presented on a basis that deconsolidates certain Carlyle funds, related co-investment entities and CLOs (referred to collectively as the “Consolidated Funds”) that Carlyle consolidates in its consolidated financial statements pursuant to U.S. GAAP. For periods prior to its Initial Public Offering, ENI also reflects pro forma compensation expense for compensation to senior Carlyle professionals, which Carlyle has accounted for as distributions from equity rather than as employee compensation for periods prior to its Initial Public Offering. Total Segment ENI equals the aggregate of ENI for all segments. ENI is evaluated regularly by management in making resource deployment decisions and in assessing performance of Carlyle’s four segments and for compensation. Carlyle believes that reporting ENI is helpful to understanding its business and that investors should review the same supplemental financial measure that management uses to analyze its segment performance.
  • Fee Related Earnings is a component of ENI and is used to measure Carlyle’s operating profitability exclusive of performance fees, investment income from investments in Carlyle’s funds and performance Fee Related compensation. Accordingly, Fee Related Earnings reflect the ability of the business to cover direct base compensation and operating expenses from fee revenues other than performance fees. For periods prior to its Initial Public Offering, Fee Related Earnings also reflects pro forma compensation expense for compensation to senior Carlyle professionals, which Carlyle has accounted for as distributions from equity rather than as employee compensation for periods prior to its Initial Public Offering. Fee Related Earnings are reported as part of Carlyle’s segment results. Carlyle uses Fee Related Earnings from operations to measure its profitability from fund management fees.
  • Distributable Earnings is a component of ENI representing total ENI less net performance fees and investment income plus realized net performance fees and realized investment income. Distributable Earnings is intended to show the amount of net realized earnings without the effects of consolidation of the Consolidated Funds. Distributable Earnings is derived from Carlyle’s segment reported results and is an additional measure to assess performance and amounts potentially available for distribution from Carlyle Holdings to its equity holders.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a component of ENI and is used to measure Carlyle’s ability to cover recurring operating expenses from cash earnings. Adjusted EBITDA is computed as ENI excluding unrealized performance fees, unrealized performance fee compensation, unrealized investment income, depreciation and amortization expense, and interest expense.

Income before provision for income taxes is the GAAP financial measure most comparable to ENI, Fee Related Earnings, Distributable Earnings, and Adjusted EBITDA. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to income before provision for income taxes are included within this press release. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Other Key Terms

Assets under management” or “AUM” refers to the assets managed by Carlyle. AUM equals the sum of the following:

(a) the fair value of the capital invested in Carlyle carry funds, co-investment vehicles, NGP management fee funds and fund of funds vehicles plus the capital that Carlyle is entitled to call from investors in those funds and vehicles (including Carlyle commitments to those funds and vehicles and those of senior Carlyle professionals and employees) pursuant to the terms of their capital commitments to those funds and vehicles;

(b) the amount of aggregate collateral balance and principal cash at par of our CLOs (inclusive of all positions) and the reference portfolio notional amount of our synthetic CLOs; and

(c) the net asset value (pre-redemptions and subscriptions) of Carlyle’s long/short credit, emerging markets, multi-product macroeconomic and other hedge funds and certain structured credit funds.

AUM includes certain energy and renewable resources funds that Carlyle jointly advises with Riverstone Investment Group L.L.C. (“Riverstone”) and certain NGP management fee funds advised by NGP Energy Capital Management. In addition, Carlyle’s calculation of AUM (but not Fee-earning AUM) includes uncalled commitments to, and the fair value of invested capital in, investment funds from Carlyle and its personnel, regardless of whether such commitments or invested capital are subject to management or performance fees.

Available capital,” commonly known as “dry powder,” for Carlyle’s carry funds and NGP management fee funds refers to the amount of capital commitments available to be called for investments. Amounts previously called may be added back to available capital following certain distributions.

Carlyle funds,” “our funds” and “our investment funds” refer to the investment funds and vehicles advised by Carlyle.

Carry funds” refers to those investment funds that Carlyle advises, including the buyout funds, growth capital funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds, certain energy funds and distressed debt and mezzanine funds (but excluding Carlyle’s structured credit funds, hedge funds and fund of funds vehicles as well as the NGP management fee funds), where Carlyle receives a special residual allocation of income, which is referred to as a “carried interest,” in the event that specified investment returns are achieved by the fund.

Expired available capital” occurs when a fund has passed the investment and follow-on periods and can no longer invest capital into new or existing deals. Any remaining available capital, typically a result of either recycled distributions or specific reserves established for the follow-on period that are not drawn, can only be called for fees and expenses and is therefore removed from the total AUM calculation.

Fee-earning assets under management” or “Fee-earning AUM” refers to the assets managed by Carlyle from which Carlyle derives recurring fund management fees. Fee-earning AUM generally equals the sum of:

(a) for carry funds and certain co-investment vehicles where the investment period has not expired, the amount of limited partner capital commitments, for fund of funds vehicles, the amount of external investor capital commitments during the commitment period, and for NGP management fee funds, the amount of investor capital commitments before the first investment realization;

(b) for substantially all carry funds and certain co-investment vehicles where the investment period has expired, the remaining amount of limited partner invested capital and for NGP management fee funds where the first investment has been realized, the amount of partner commitments less realized and written-off investments;

(c) the amount of aggregate Fee-earning collateral balance at par of our collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs“), as defined in the fund indentures (typically exclusive of equities and defaulted positions) as of the quarterly cut-off date for each CLO, and the reference portfolio notional amount of our synthetic collateralized loan obligations (“synthetic CLOs“);

Fee-earning AUM includes certain energy and renewable resources funds that Carlyle jointly advises with Riverstone and certain NGP management fee funds advised by NGP Energy Capital Management.

For Carlyle’s carry funds, co-investment vehicles, NGP management fee funds and fund of funds vehicles, total AUM includes the fair value of the capital invested, whereas Fee-earning AUM includes the amount of capital commitments or the remaining amount of invested capital at cost, depending on whether the investment period for the fund has expired. As such, Fee-earning AUM may be greater than total AUM when the aggregate fair value of the remaining investments is less than the cost of those investments.

Fund of funds vehicles” refer to those funds, accounts and vehicles advised by AlpInvest Partners B.V., formerly known as AlpInvest Partners N.V.

NGP management fee funds” refers to those funds advised by NGP Energy Capital Management. In December 2012, Carlyle acquired an equity interest in NGP Energy Capital Management that entitles Carlyle to an allocation of income equal to 47.5% of the management Fee Related revenues of the NGP Energy Capital Management entities that serve as the advisors to certain private equity funds.

Net performance fees” refers to the performance fees from Carlyle funds and fund of funds vehicles net of the portion allocated to Carlyle investment professionals which is reflected as performance Fee Related compensation expense.

Performance fees” consist principally of carried interest from carry funds and fund of funds vehicles and incentive fees or allocations from certain of our Global Market Strategies funds. Carlyle is generally entitled to a 20% allocation (or 1.8% to 10% in the case of most of the fund of funds vehicles) of the net realized income or gain as a carried interest after returning the invested capital, the allocation of preferred returns of generally 8% to 9% and the return of certain fund costs (subject to catch-up provisions as set forth in the fund limited partnership agreement). Carried interest revenue, which is a component of performance fees in Carlyle’s consolidated financial statements, is recognized by Carlyle upon appreciation of the valuation of the applicable funds’ investments above certain return hurdles as set forth in each respective partnership agreement and is based on the amount that would be due to Carlyle pursuant to the fund partnership agreement at each period end as if the funds were liquidated at such date.

Realized net performance fees” refers to the realized performance fees from Carlyle funds and fund of funds vehicles net of the portion allocated to Carlyle investment professionals which is reflected as realized performance Fee Related compensation expense.
