KKR & Co. L.P. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE: KKR) today reported its second quarter 2013 results.

AUM and fee paying assets under management (“FPAUM”) were $83.5 billion and $68.0 billion, respectively as of June 30, 2013, both up from March 31, 2013. The increases in both AUM and FPAUM were primarily attributable to new capital raised relating to the Asian Fund II. The increases were partially offset by distributions to fund limited partners and to a lesser extent the impact of the Asian Fund entering its post-investment period.

For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, FRE was $98.2 million and $186.2 million, respectively, up from $69.8 million and $143.1 million in the comparable periods of 2012. The increase in both comparable periods was primarily driven by new capital raised over the past twelve months and the acquisition of Prisma.

For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, the carrying value of our private equity investment portfolio appreciated 0.9% and 6.6%, respectively. ENI was $144.4 million and $792.2 million for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, down from $546.1 million and $1,273.3 million in the comparable periods of 2012. The decrease in both comparable periods was primarily due to lower investment income earned from our principal investments as well as a lower level of net carried interest earned from our private equity funds. While the fair value of our principal investments increased during the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, the level of appreciation was lower than in the comparable periods of 2012.

“Over the past year, organic fee-paying AUM inflows have exceeded $19 billion, supporting the continued growth of our Private Markets business as well as the scaling of our newer strategies in Public Markets,” said Henry R. Kravis and George R. Roberts, Co-Chairmen and Co-Chief Executive Officers of KKR. “In addition, our realization activity in the second quarter drove the highest cash carry we’ve reported since going public, contributing to a quarterly distribution of $0.42 per unit.”
 
Note: Certain financial measures, including FRE, ENI, after-tax ENI, ENI after taxes and equity-based charges, fee related EBITDA, book value, cash and short-term investments and adjusted units, are not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). See Exhibits A and B for a reconciliation of such measures to financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

GAAP RESULTS

GAAP results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013 included net income attributable to KKR & Co. L.P. of $15.1 million and $208.6 million, respectively, and net income attributable to KKR & Co. L.P. per common unit of $0.05 and $0.72, respectively, on a diluted basis. For the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, net income attributable to KKR & Co. L.P. was $146.3 million and $336.7 million, respectively, and net income attributable to KKR & Co. L.P. per common unit was $0.58 and $1.37, respectively, on a diluted basis. The decrease in both comparable periods was primarily due to a lower level of investment appreciation recorded in net gains (losses) from investment activities. The decrease in net gains (losses) from investment activities was partially offset by increases in fees primarily attributable to the acquisition of Prisma and higher transaction fees. The decrease in compensation and benefits expense was primarily attributable to lower carry pool allocations as a result of the recognition of lower carried interest during the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the comparable periods in 2012.
