Oaktree Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (NYSE: OAK) today reported its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Adjusted net income (“ANI”) rose $131.5 million, to $297.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 from $165.5 million in the second quarter of 2012, on a $214.0 million increase in total segment revenues. The 63% growth in revenues, to $555.1 million from $341.1 million, reflected a 162% gain in incentive income, to $338.1 million from $129.0 million, and a 49% increase in investment income, to $34.6 million from $23.2 million. Driven by $4.7 billion of distributions to investors in closed-end funds, incentive income arose from funds in our distressed debt, real estate and control investing strategies, and included $272.5 million from OCM Opportunities Fund VIIb, L.P. (“Opps VIIb”). ANI increased to $632.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 from $339.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, on a 74% rise in total segment revenues, to $1.1 billion.

Distributable earnings grew to $313.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 from $176.4 million in the second quarter of 2012, on higher incentive income and investment income proceeds. For the six-month period, distributable earnings rose to $608.2 million in 2013 from $313.7 million in 2012. The 2013 results represented record highs for any quarter or six-month period in the Company's history.

Distributable earnings generated a distribution per Class A unit of $1.51 with respect to the second quarter of 2013. That quarterly distribution and the trailing two- and four-quarter distributions of $2.92 and $4.52, respectively, represent records for any such period.

Howard Marks, Chairman, said, “Our investment teams continue to deliver both exceptional cash returns and new opportunities for future growth and income. In the second quarter, our closed-end funds distributed $4.7 billion to investors, yielding record incentive income of $338.1 million. As a demonstrated leader in credit strategies, we continue to raise significant capital for our newest products to provide our clients with superior risk-adjusted investment performance across market cycles.”
