WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group L.P. (NAS: CG) today reported its unaudited results for the second quarter of 2013, which ended on June 30, 2013.

Carlyle Co-CEO David M. Rubenstein said, "We had a solid quarter across the firm and continued to demonstrate our ability to produce cash distributions for unitholders. Fundraising strengthened across the board, and we continue to invest in growth initiatives to build our capabilities."


Carlyle Co-CEO William E. Conway, Jr. said, "Our global portfolio is in great shape and our pace of producing realized proceeds continues to be brisk. I am particularly pleased with the state of our U.S. buyout portfolio which is producing large amounts of cash carry and accrued carry for future distributions."

U.S. GAAP results for Q2 2013 included income before provision for income taxes of $286 million and net income/(loss) attributable to the common unitholders through The Carlyle Group L.P. of ($3.3) million, or net income/(loss) per common unit of ($0.07) on a diluted basis. Total balance sheet assets were $33.8 billion as of June 30, 2013.

 

Second 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 August 19, 2013, payable on August 30, 2013.

Year-to-date, the Board of Directors has declared $0.32 in distributions per common unit. Carlyle has generated $1.00 in year-to-date after-tax Distributable Earnings per common unit.

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.

Carlyle All Segment Results

  • Distributable Earnings (DE): $163 million for Q2 2013 and $729 million on an LTM basis

    • Fee-Related Earnings were $26 million for Q2 2013 and declined by $10 million from $36 million in Q2 2012 due to higher fundraising costs and fee and basis step downs of several funds exiting their investment periods, offset by higher Fee-Earning Assets Under Management.

    • Realized Net Performance Fees were $118 million for Q2 2013, compared to $76 million in Q2 2012. For Q2 2013, Realized Net Performance Fees were positively impacted by exits in The Hertz Corporation, The Nielsen Company, CommScope Inc, SS&C Technologies Inc, Wesco Holdings Inc., Cobalt International Energy, Boston Private Financial Holdings Inc., among others. Realized Net Performance Fees were $543 million on an LTM basis, which was 14% lower than the prior rolling twelve month period.
