Aug 6 (Reuters) - Apollo Global Management LLC said on Wednesday its second-quarter earnings declined 6 percent, missing most analysts’ expectations, as it sold fewer of its private equity holdings while taxes and expenses rose.
Total economic net income (ENI) after taxes was $207.5 versus $220.1 million in the quarter of 2013. This translated into ENI per share of 52 cents, lower than the average analyst estimate of 66 cents, according to a poll by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Apollo cited a higher tax provision and increased profit-sharing expenses for the $12.6 million decrease in ENI.
Distributable earnings after taxes and related payables, which show actual cash available to pay dividends, came to $227.1 million versus $603.9 million for the same period in 2013.
Total assets under management were $167.5 billion as the end of June, up from $159.3 billion as of the end of March.
