  • Pre-tax distributable earnings ("DE") of $137 million, or $0.30 per dividend paying share, for the second quarter of 2015, compared to pre-tax DE of $172 million, or $0.39 per dividend paying share for the second quarter of 2014
  • Net cash and investments of $2.87 per dividend paying share as of June 30, 2015

  • Total uncalled capital, or "dry powder," of $10.1 billion as of June 30, 2015, including $7.1 billion available for general investment purposes

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Raised $3.2 billion of capital across alternative investment businesses during the quarter and $8.6 billion in the first half of 2015
  • Recorded $1.1 billion of net client inflows for Logan Circle during the quarter, bringing total net client inflows year-to-date through June 30, 2015 to $1.6 billion
  • Investment performance summary as of June 30, 2015:
    • Second quarter 2015 net returns of 2.3% for Drawbridge Special Opportunities Fund ("DBSO") LP and (6.2)% for Fortress Macro Fund Ltd
    • Annualized inception-to-date net IRRs for FCO, FCO II and FCO III of 25.1%, 17.7% and 12.0%, respectively
    • Private Equity fund valuations decreased 2.3% in the first half of 2015
    • 13 out of 16 Logan Circle fixed income strategies outperformed respective benchmarks for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 and 15 of 16 strategies have outperformed respective benchmarks since inception

"We delivered strong financial performance in the second quarter and carried great momentum into the second half of the year," said Fortress Chief Executive Officer Randy Nardone. "Our results reflect continued top-tier investment performance in our Credit funds and substantial contributions from a Permanent Capital business that now accounts for nearly 20% of total alternative AUM. Robust investor demand for successor Credit PE funds and equity raised for our Permanent Capital Vehicles led to our raising more capital in the first half of 2015 than in any full year since 2008. With assets under management at an all-time high of $72 billion, ample dry powder to deploy and substantial embedded value to harvest, we have a very optimistic outlook for future earnings growth and valuation upside."

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 Fortress's alternative AUM residing in long-term investment structures. Fortress's alternative investment 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 six months ended June 30, 2015. The consolidated GAAP statement of operations and balance sheet are presented on pages 12-13 of this press release.

CONSOLIDATED GAAP RESULTS

Fortress recorded GAAP net income of $5 million, or $0.00 per diluted Class A share, for the second quarter of 2015, compared to GAAP net income of $73 million, or $0.12 per diluted Class A share, for the second quarter of 2014. Our diluted earnings per share for all periods presented includes the income tax effects to net income (loss) attributable to Class A shareholders from the assumed conversion of Fortress Operating Group units and fully vested restricted partnership units to Class A shares.

The year-over-year decrease in Fortress's second quarter 2015 GAAP net income was primarily driven by a $78 million decrease in other income and a $42 million increase in expenses, partially offset by a $38 million increase in revenues. The decrease in other income was primarily related to $36 million of losses from equity method investees while the increase in expenses was primarily related to higher compensation and benefits. The increase in revenues was primarily related to higher management fees and incentive income from affiliates.

CONSOLIDATED SEGMENT RESULTS (NON-GAAP)

This section provides information about each of Fortress's businesses: (i) Credit Hedge Funds and Credit PE Funds, (ii) Private Equity Funds and Permanent Capital Vehicles, (iii) Liquid Hedge Funds, and (iv) Logan Circle.

Fortress uses DE as the primary metric to manage its businesses and gauge the Company's performance, and it uses DE exclusively to report segment results. All DE figures are presented on a pre-tax basis. Consolidated segment results are non-GAAP information and are not presented as a substitute for Fortress's GAAP results.

2 The Assets Under Management presented for the Liquid Hedge Funds includes $3,896 million related to Affiliated Managers. The Assets Under Management presented for the Credit Hedge Funds includes $156 million related to the third-party originated Value Recovery Funds. Fortress earns fees from the Value Recovery Funds based only on collections.
3 The Average Management Fee Rate presented for the Liquid Hedge Funds excludes Affiliated Managers. The Average Management Fee Rate presented for the Credit Hedge Funds excludes the third-party originated Value Recovery Funds. See footnote (2) above.
4 The Incentive Eligible NAV Above Incentive Income Threshold presented for Liquid and Credit Hedge Funds excludes sidepocket investments and for Liquid Hedge Funds, excludes Affiliated Managers. The Incentive Eligible NAV Above Incentive Income Threshold presented for Private Equity Funds and Credit PE Funds (except for Fund V, Long Dated Value Fund I and Real Estate Opportunities Fund II, of which a portion of the fund's capital was above the incentive income threshold as of June 30, 2015), represents total fund NAV. The Incentive Eligible NAV Above Incentive Income Threshold presented for the Permanent Capital Vehicles represents the equity basis that is used to calculate incentive income.
5 The Undistributed Incentive Income presented for the Liquid Hedge Funds excludes Affiliated Managers. Undistributed Incentive Income includes the impact of sidepocket investments on Liquid and Credit Hedge Funds. Undistributed Incentive Income for Private Equity Funds, Credit PE Funds and Liquid and Credit Hedge Fund sidepocket and redeeming capital account (RCA) investments has not been recognized in Distributable Earnings and will be recognized when realized; Undistributed Incentive Income for other Hedge Fund investments was recognized in Distributable Earnings when earned. Undistributed Incentive Income for Permanent Capital Vehicles includes incentive income that would have been recorded in Distributable Earnings if Fortress had (i) exercised all of its in-the-money options it holds in the Permanent Capital Vehicles and sold all of the resulting shares and (ii) sold all of its Permanent Capital Vehicle common shares which it received as incentive income, based on their June 30, 2015 closing price.
6 Net Investment Income includes Unallocated Expenses of $1 million.
 

Pre-tax DE was $137 million in the second quarter of 2015, down from $172 million in the second quarter of 2014. This year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower net investment income and management fees, partially offset by higher incentive income.

Management fees were $144 million in the second quarter of 2015, down from $152 million in the second quarter of 2014. Management fees for the second quarter of 2014 included approximately $15 million attributable to the former Fortress Asia Macro Funds ("FAMF"). With the transition of FAMF to Graticule Asset Management Asia L.P. ("Graticule") in the first quarter of 2015, Fortress no longer includes FAMF management fees in revenue. Adjusting for this transition, Fortress management fees increased by approximately $7 million year-over-year in the second quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher management fees from the Credit PE Funds, Permanent Capital Vehicles, Logan Circle and Credit Hedge Funds, partially offset by lower management fees from the Liquid Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds.

Incentive income recorded in the second quarter of 2015 totaled $183 million, up from $78 million recorded in the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to higher incentive income from the Credit PE Funds and Permanent Capital Vehicles.

Earnings from Affiliated Managers were a loss of $1 million in the second quarter of 2015, down from earnings of $9 million in the first quarter of 2015, related to our interests in Graticule.

Additionally, Fortress had $1.0 billion in gross undistributed, unrecognized incentive income based on investment valuations as of June 30, 2015. This includes $974 million from our funds, $38 million from options in our permanent capital vehicles and $6 million in common shares Fortress received in connection with the IPO of Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC ("FTAI").

The Company's segment revenues and distributable earnings will fluctuate materially depending upon the performance of its funds and the realization events within its Private Equity businesses, as well as other factors. Accordingly, the revenues and distributable earnings in any particular period should not be expected to be indicative of future results.

ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENT

As of June 30, 2015, AUM totaled $72.0 billion, up from $69.9 billion as of March 31, 2015. During the quarter, Fortress raised $3.0 billion of capital and equity that was directly added to AUM, recorded $1.1 billion of net client inflows for Logan Circle, and had a $0.8 billion increase in invested capital. These increases to AUM were partially offset by (i) $1.5 billion of market-driven valuation losses, (ii) $0.4 billion of Liquid Hedge Fund redemptions, (iii) $0.3 billion of capital distributions to investors, (iv) $0.2 billion of payments to Credit Hedge Fund investors from redeeming capital accounts, and (v) a $0.2 billion capital reset adjustment.

As of June 30, 2015, the Credit Funds and Private Equity Funds had $8.5 billion and $1.7 billion of uncalled capital, respectively, that will become AUM if deployed/called. Uncalled capital or dry powder – capital committed to the funds but not invested and generating management fees – includes $3.0 billion that is only available for follow-on investments, management fees and other fund expenses. Notably, approximately 81% of alternative AUM was in funds with long-term investment structures as of June 30, 2015, which provides for a stable, predictable base of management fees.

BUSINESS SEGMENT RESULTS

Below is a discussion of second quarter 2015 segment results and business highlights.

Credit:

  • DBSO LP net returns of 2.3% for the second quarter of 2015
  • FCO, FCO II, FCO III, Japan Opportunity Fund ("FJOF") and FJOF II (Yen) recorded annualized inception-to-date net IRRs of 25.1%, 17.7%, 12.0%, 31.7% and 24.2%, respectively, through June 30, 2015
  • Closed latest flagship Credit Real Estate fund, Fortress Real Estate Opportunities Fund ("FROF") II, at its cap of $1.0 billion
  • Credit PE Funds invested $0.8 billion of capital in the first half of 2015, compared to $0.3 billion invested in the first half of 2014

(See supplemental data on pages 19-20 for more detail on Credit results)

The Credit business, which includes our Credit PE Funds and Credit Hedge Funds, generated pre-tax DE of $68 million in the second quarter of 2015, up from $35 million in the second quarter of 2014. The 94% year-over-year increase in DE was primarily driven by substantially higher incentive income, partially offset by higher profit sharing and operating expenses.

The Credit Hedge Funds generated pre-tax DE of $36 million in the quarter, compared to $32 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to an $8 million increase in incentive income year-over-year. DBSO LP, Fortress's flagship credit hedge fund, had net returns of 2.3% in the second quarter following net returns of 2.2% in the first quarter of 2015.

The Credit PE Funds generated pre-tax DE of $32 million in the quarter, up significantly from $3 million in the second quarter of 2014, as increased realization activity resulted in $60 million of incentive income in the quarter, compared to $13 million of incentive income in the second quarter of 2014. Gross unrecognized Credit PE incentive income totaled $874 million at quarter end, up $38 million from June 30, 2014, despite $259 million of gross Credit PE incentive income recognized in DE over the last twelve months.

The Credit PE Funds raised $0.7 billion of capital in the quarter, including $0.4 billion for FROF II which closed at its cap of $1.0 billion. At quarter end, approximately 20% of the fund's capital has already been committed or invested in the U.S. and Europe. FROF II is a successor fund to FROF I and related funds, which launched in September 2011 with approximately $625 million in commitments.

Private Equity and Permanent Capital Vehicles:

  • AUM increased 20% year-over-year to all-time high of $16.5 billion
  • Raised $2.3 billion of permanent equity capital in the second quarter, including $0.4 billion of capital raised in connection with FTAI's IPO
  • Exercised and sold in-the-money New Residential Investment Corp. ("New Residential") options, resulting in gross incentive income of $57 million recognized in DE in the second quarter

(See supplemental data on pages 17-18 for more detail on Private Equity results)

The Private Equity business recorded pre-tax DE of $76 million in the second quarter of 2015, including $62 million for the Permanent Capital Vehicles and $14 million for the Private Equity Funds. Pre-tax DE declined from $131 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to $91 million of Private Equity fund investment income that was recorded in the second quarter of 2014, partially offset by $74 million of Permanent Capital Vehicle incentive income in the second quarter of 2015.

The Permanent Capital Vehicles have raised $2.4 billion of capital year-to-date through June 30, 2015, including $1.3 billion raised by New Residential, $0.3 billion raised by Eurocastle Investment Limited ("Eurocastle"), $0.4 billion raised by FTAI, $0.3 billion raised by New Senior Investment Group Inc. ("New Senior") and $0.2 billion raised by New Media Investment Group Inc. ("New Media"). A portion of the capital raised by New Residential was used to help fund New Residential's acquisition of HLSS in April 2015.

In June 2015, Fortress sold 3.6 million shares acquired through the exercise of outstanding in-the-money options it held in New Residential. The transaction resulted in $57 million of gross incentive income recognized in DE in the quarter.

Private Equity Fund valuations decreased 2.3% in the first half of 2015, primarily due to depreciation of Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. (NYSE: NSM) and certain privately held portfolio company investments, partially offset by appreciation of Springleaf Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: LEAF).

Liquid Hedge Funds:

  • Raised $0.3 billion of capital year-to-date through June 30, 2015

(See supplemental data on page 21 for more detail on Liquid Hedge Funds results)

The Liquid Hedge Funds recorded a pre-tax DE loss of $6 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to pre-tax DE of $7 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to lower management fees. Earnings from Affiliated Managers were a loss of $1 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to earnings of $9 million in the first quarter of 2015.

Second quarter 2015 net returns for the Fortress Macro Funds, Fortress Convex Asia Funds, Fortress Centaurus Global Funds and Fortress Partners Funds were (6.2)%, (0.8)%, (4.1)% and (1.2)%, respectively. Net returns year-to-date through July 24, 2015 for the Fortress Macro Funds, Fortress Convex Asia Funds and Fortress Centaurus Global Funds were (9.9)%, (1.8)% and (2.2)%, respectively.*

Liquid Hedge Funds ended the quarter with $7.4 billion of AUM, including $3.9 billion related to Affiliated Managers. Liquid Hedge Fund AUM declined slightly during the quarter primarily due to $0.4 billion of redemptions, partially offset by $0.2 billion of capital raised. At quarter end, there were $718 million of Liquid Hedge Fund redemption notices outstanding, including $510 million to be paid primarily in the third quarter of 2015.

__________________________________

* The net returns for the Fortress Convex Asia Funds reflect returns for the Fortress Convex Asia Funds and Fortress Convex Asia PF Funds collectively. The calculation of net returns for the Fortress Convex Asia PF Funds reflect all expenses, including management fees, accrued incentive allocation (if any), and other expenses over the fund's Trading Level. "Trading Level" is defined as the product of the fund's NAV multiplied by the Funding Factor. The "Funding Factor" is 2x for Fortress Convex Asia Fund PF Ltd and Fortress Convex Asia Fund PF LP. The net returns for the Fortress Partners Funds represent the performance of Fortress Partners Fund LP. Please see supplemental data on page 21 for more detail on the returns of each Fortress Partners Fund.

 

Logan Circle:

  • 13 out of 16 Logan Circle fixed income investment strategies outperformed their respective benchmarks in the quarter, and 15 of 16 strategies have outperformed respective benchmarks since inception
  • AUM totaled $33.6 billion at June 30, 2015, an increase of 15% compared to June 30, 2014
  • Net client inflows totaled $1.1 billion in the quarter

(See supplemental data on page 22 for more detail on Logan Circle results)

Logan Circle, our traditional asset management business, recorded breakeven pre-tax DE in the quarter, compared to a pre-tax DE loss of $1 million in the second quarter of 2014, as higher management fees were offset by higher operating expenses.

Logan Circle ended the quarter with $33.6 billion in AUM, relatively flat compared to the prior quarter and a 15% increase compared to the second quarter of 2014. AUM was relatively flat quarter-over-quarter as net inflows were largely offset by market-driven valuation losses.

For the year-to-date period through June 30, 2015, all 16 of Logan Circle's fixed income strategies outperformed their respective benchmarks. Since inception, 15 of 16 Logan Circle fixed income strategies have outperformed their respective benchmarks and seven were ranked in the top quartile of performance for their competitor universe.

LIQUIDITY & CAPITAL

As of June 30, 2015, Fortress had cash and cash equivalents of $234 million and debt obligations of $75 million.

As of June 30, 2015, Fortress had $1.2 billion of investments in Fortress funds and options in publicly traded permanent capital vehicles. As of June 30, 2015, Fortress had a total of $166 million of outstanding commitments to its funds.

In addition, the NAV of Fortress's investments in its own funds exceeded its segment cost basis by $538 million at quarter end, representing net unrealized gains that have not yet been recognized for segment reporting purposes.

DIVIDEND

Fortress's Board of Directors declared a second quarter 2015 cash dividend of $0.08 per dividend paying share. The dividend is payable on August 14, 2015 to Class A shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 11, 2015.

The declaration and payment of any dividends are at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, which may decide to change its dividend policy at any time. Please see below for information on the U.S. federal income tax implications of the dividend.

NON-GAAP INFORMATION

DE is a primary metric used by management to measure Fortress's operating performance. Consistent with GAAP, DE is the sole measure that management uses to manage, and thus report on, Fortress's segments, namely: Private Equity, Permanent Capital Vehicles, Credit Hedge Funds, Credit PE Funds, Liquid Hedge Funds and Logan Circle. DE differs from GAAP net income in a number of material ways. For a detailed description of the calculation of pre-tax DE and fund management DE, see Exhibit 3 to this release and note 10 to the financial statements included in the Company's most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

Fortress aggregates its segment results to report consolidated segment results, as shown in the table under "Summary Financial Results" and in the "Total" column of the table under "Consolidated Segment Results (Non-GAAP)." The consolidated segment results are non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that consolidated segment results provide a meaningful basis for comparison among present and future periods. However, consolidated segment results should not be considered a substitute for Fortress's consolidated GAAP results. The exhibits to this release contain reconciliations of the components of Fortress's consolidated segment results to the comparable GAAP measures, and Fortress urges you to review these exhibits. Fortress also uses weighted average dividend paying shares and units outstanding (used to calculate pre-tax DE per dividend paying share) and net cash and investments. The exhibits to this release contain reconciliations of these measures to the comparable GAAP measures, and Fortress urges you to review these exhibits.

‘‘Distributable earnings'' is Fortress's supplemental measure of operating performance used by management in analyzing segment and overall results. It reflects the value created which management considers available for distribution during any period. As compared to generally accepted accounting principles (‘‘GAAP'') net income, distributable earnings excludes the effects of unrealized gains (or losses) on illiquid investments, reflects contingent revenue which has been received as income to the extent it is not expected to be reversed, and disregards expenses which do not require an outlay of assets, whether currently or on an accrued basis. Distributable earnings is reflected on an unconsolidated and pre-tax basis, and, therefore, the interests in consolidated subsidiaries related to Fortress Operating Group units (held by the principals) and income tax expense are added back in its calculation. Distributable earnings is not a measure of cash generated by operations which is available for distribution nor should it be considered in isolation or as an alternative to cash flow or net income in accordance with GAAP and it is not necessarily indicative of liquidity or cash available to fund the Company's operations. For a complete discussion of distributable earnings and its reconciliation to GAAP, as well as an explanation of the calculation of distributable earnings impairment, see note 10 to the financial statements included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Fortress's management uses distributable earnings:

  • in its determination of periodic distributions to equity holders;
  • in making operating decisions and assessing the performance of each of the Company's core businesses;
  • for planning purposes, including the preparation of annual operating budgets; and
  • as a valuation measure in strategic analyses in connection with the performance of its funds and the performance of its employees.

Growing distributable earnings is a key component to the Company's business strategy and distributable earnings is the supplemental measure used by management to evaluate the economic profitability of each of the Company's businesses and total operations. Therefore, Fortress believes that it provides useful information to investors in evaluating its operating performance. Fortress's definition of distributable earnings is not based on any definition contained in its amended and restated operating agreement.

"Fund management DE" is equal to pre-tax distributable earnings excluding our direct investment-related results. Fund management DE is comprised of "Pre-tax Distributable Earnings" excluding "Investment Loss (Income)" and "Interest Expense." Fund management DE and its components are used by management to analyze and measure the performance of our investment management business on a stand-alone basis. Fortress defines segment operating margin to be equal to fund management DE divided by segment revenues. The Company believes that it is useful to provide investors with the opportunity to review our investment management business using the same metrics. Fund management DE and its components are subject to the same limitations as pre-tax distributable earnings, as described above.

"Dividend paying shares and units" represents the number of shares and units outstanding at the end of the period which were entitled to receive dividends or related distributions. The Company believes it is useful for investors in computing the aggregate amount of cash required to make a current per share distribution of a given amount per share. It excludes certain potentially dilutive equity instruments, primarily non-dividend paying restricted Class A share units, and, therefore, is limited in its usefulness in computing per share amounts. Accordingly, dividend paying shares and units should be considered only as a supplement and not an alternative to GAAP basic and diluted shares outstanding. The Company's calculation of dividend paying shares and units may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.

Net cash and investments represents cash and cash equivalents plus investments less debt outstanding. The Company believes that net cash and investments is a useful supplemental measure because it provides investors with information regarding the Company's net investment assets. Net cash and investments excludes certain assets (investments in options, due from affiliates, deferred tax asset, other assets) and liabilities (due to affiliates, accrued compensation and benefits, deferred incentive income and other liabilities) and its utility as a measure of financial position is limited. Accordingly, net cash and investments should be considered only as a supplement and not an alternative to GAAP book value as a measure of the Company's financial position. The Company's calculation of net cash and investments may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
