Ares Management, L.P. (NYSE:ARES) today reported its financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2016. "Ares generated another quarter of strong financial results as third quarter economic net income and distributable earnings increased across all three investment groups compared to the same period last year," said Tony Ressler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ares. "With more than $4 billion in new capital commitments during the third quarter, our broad investment platform continues to attract existing and new investors to our funds as they seek alternative, less correlated solutions in today's low rate and low growth market environment." "In the third quarter, we benefited from positive fund investment performance, improved fee related earnings and realizations on a number of successful investments," said Michael Arougheti, President of Ares. "In addition, we have a number of initiatives that we expect will help us drive higher fee related earnings margins in the coming years." Common Distribution Ares declared a quarterly distribution of $0.20 per common unit, payable to common unitholders of record at the close of business on November 21, 2016, payable on December 5, 2016. Preferred Distribution A distribution of $0.4375 per Series A Preferred Unit has been declared with a payment date of December 31, 2016 to holders of record as of the close of business on December 15, 2016.
