Oaktree Capital Group, LLC Announces Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Fee-related earnings

Fee-related earnings (“FRE”) increased $13.1 million, or 19.0%, to $82.2 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $69.1 million for the second quarter of 2011, reflecting the aforementioned increase in management fees and lower levels of compensation, benefits, general, administrative and other expenses.

The portion of FRE attributable to our Class A units (“fee-related earnings-OCG”) was $0.41 and $0.30 per Class A unit for the second quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively, reflecting income tax rates applied against FRE of 20% and 32%, respectively. As described at the table under “Fee-Related Earnings,” the 2012 tax rate of 20% for fee-related earnings-OCG excludes the impact of the aforementioned one-time adjustment to deferred tax assets. The effective income tax rate used for interim fiscal periods is based on the estimated full-year income tax rate. The income tax rate, which is subject to change as the year progresses, declined from the prior-year period as a result of, among various factors, increased deductions resulting from our initial public offering.

Distributable earnings

Distributable earnings increased $6.1 million, or 3.6%, to $176.4 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $170.3 million for the second quarter of 2011, as increases of $13.1 million in fee-related earnings and $1.9 million in incentive income, net of incentive income compensation expense, exceeded a decline of $9.0 million in receipts of investment income. The decline in investment income receipts reflected the fact that the second quarter of 2011 included two quarters’ worth of receipts from Opps VIIb, because the fund’s first quarter 2011 receipts of $30.1 million were counted in the subsequent quarter, when the fund entered its liquidation period.

The portion of distributable earnings attributable to our Class A units (“distributable earnings-OCG”) was $1.02 and $0.91 per Class A unit for the second quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively, reflecting distributable earnings per Operating Group unit of $1.17 and $1.15, respectively, less costs borne by Class A unitholders for professional fees and other expenses, cash taxes attributable to the Intermediate Holding Companies and amounts payable pursuant to the tax receivable agreement.
