SUMMARY FINANCIAL RESULTS
Fortress’s business model is highly diversified, and management believes that this positions the company to capitalize on opportunities for investing, capital formation and harvesting profits that can occur at different points in any cycle for our individual businesses. Fortress’s business model generates stable and predictable management fees, which is a function of the majority of alternative assets under management residing in long-term investment structures. Fortress’s alternatives businesses also generate variable incentive income based on performance, and this incentive income can contribute meaningfully to financial results. Balance sheet investments represent a third component of Fortress’s business model, and the company has built substantial value in these investments, which are made in Fortress funds alongside the funds’ limited partners.
The table below summarizes Fortress’s operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. The consolidated GAAP statement of operations and balance sheet are presented at the end of this press release.
