Our business is comprised of one segment, our investment management segment, which consists of the investment management services that we provide to our clients. The components of revenues and expenses used in determining adjusted net income do not give effect to the consolidation of the funds that we manage. In addition, adjusted net income excludes the effect of: (a) non-cash equity compensation charges, (b) income taxes, (c) expenses that OCG or its Intermediate Holding Companies bear directly and (d) the adjustment for the Oaktree Capital Group Holdings, L.P. (“OCGH”) non-controlling interest. Adjusted net income is calculated at the Operating Group level. We expect that adjusted net income will include non-cash equity compensation charges related to unit grants made after our initial public offering. For additional information regarding the reconciling adjustments discussed above, please see Exhibit A.

(2)

 

Assets under management represents the NAV of the assets we manage, plus the undrawn capital that we are entitled to call at the end of the applicable period and fund-level leverage that generates management fees.

(3)

 

Management fee-generating assets under management reflects assets under management on which we earn management fees. It excludes certain assets under management, such as differences between assets under management and committed capital or cost basis for most closed-end funds, the investments we make in our funds as general partners, undrawn capital commitments to funds for which management fees are based on NAV or drawn capital, contributed capital and capital commitments to closed-end funds that have not yet commenced their investment periods, closed-end funds that are beyond the term during which they pay management fees, and assets under management in restructured and liquidating evergreen funds for which management fees were waived.

(4)

 

Incentive-creating assets under management refers to the assets under management that may eventually produce incentive income. It represents the NAV of our closed-end and evergreen funds, excluding investments made by us and our employees (which are not subject to an incentive allocation).

(5)

 

Uncalled capital commitments represent undrawn capital commitments by partners (including Oaktree as general partner) of our closed-end funds in their investment periods. If a fund distributes capital during its investment period, that capital is typically subject to possible recall, in which case it is included in uncalled capital commitments.

(6)

 

Our funds record as accrued incentives the incentive income that would be paid to us if the funds were liquidated at their reported values as of the date of the financial statements. Incentives created (fund level) refers to the amount generated by the funds during the period. We refer to the amount of incentive income recognized as revenue by us as segment incentive income. We recognize incentive income when it becomes fixed or determinable, all related contingencies have been removed and collection is reasonably assured. Amounts recognized by us as incentive income no longer are included in accrued incentives (fund level), the term we use for remaining fund-level accruals. Incentives created (fund level), incentive income and accrued incentives (fund level) are presented gross, without deduction for direct compensation expense that is owed to our investment professionals associated with the particular fund when we earn the incentive income. We call that charge “incentive income compensation expense.” Incentive income compensation expense varies by the investment strategy and vintage of the particular fund, among other factors, but generally equals between 40% and 55% of segment incentive income revenue.

(7)

 

The change in accrued incentives (fund level), net of associated incentive income compensation expense, represents the difference between (a) net incentive income recognized by us, and (b) the incentive income generated by the funds during the period that would be due to us if the funds were liquidated at their reported values as of that date, net of associated incentive income compensation expense.
 

Operating Metrics (Unaudited)

We monitor certain operating metrics that are either common to the alternative asset management industry or that we believe provide important data regarding our business. As described below, these operating metrics include AUM, management fee-generating AUM, incentive-creating AUM, incentives created (fund level), accrued incentives (fund level) and uncalled capital commitments.
