CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2009 Financial Results

Los Angeles, CA – October 28, 2009CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) today reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.08 for the third quarter of 2009 on revenue of $1.0 billion. 

On a U.S. GAAP basis, the Company reported net income for the quarter of $12.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. Excluding one-time charges1, net income2 for the third quarter would have totaled $21.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA)3 for the third quarter totaled $98.1 million, which was lowered by $11.8 million4 of one-time charges, mostly related to cost-containment actions.

These results compared with third-quarter 2008 revenue of $1.3 billion; net income of $40.4 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, on a U.S. GAAP basis; adjusted net income (excluding one-time charges) of $56.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted share; and EBITDA of $148.0 million.  Third-quarter 2008 EBITDA included $10.8 million5 of one-time charges.

“During the third quarter, we continued to make strong progress in both managing our capital structure and positioning the Company to grow profitably as the economy improves,” said Brett White, president and chief executive officer of CB Richard Ellis. “We substantially strengthened our balance sheet by extending maturities and amortization on almost $1 billion of bank debt. Operationally, our business continued to perform well amid a very difficult global market environment.  Because of our two-year effort to increase efficiencies and remove costs from our operating platform, combined EBITDA margins in our major geographic regions -- the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific -- matched the prior-year quarter, despite significantly lower revenue.  As expected, margins also saw seasonal improvement compared with the second quarter of 2009. During the quarter, we completed actions that will allow us to achieve our goal of reducing annualized operating costs by $600 million. CB Richard Ellis is now well positioned to both serve clients on a profitable basis in the current environment and to drive significant market share growth.  Our business is also positioned to benefit from very significant operating leverage.

“We are beginning to see signs that market conditions in some parts of the world and in some business segments – like the broader economy – are starting to stabilize.  For example, the trend in our U.S. and Asia Pacific valuation business improved modestly during the quarter due to an increase in portfolio assignments related to workouts and bankruptcies.  In addition, our overall business performance in the Asia Pacific Region has stabilized faster than in other regions due to the relative strength of those economies. However, major investment sales and leasing markets globally remain under pressure and will likely continue to be stressed until the credit markets and global economy recover.”

Outsourcing continues to grow in importance for CB Richard Ellis. Revenue from this segment has held up better than in other business lines, but slipped slightly compared with the year-earlier quarter due to reduced client spending as well as the effect of client consolidations and distress over the past year.

During the third quarter, CB Richard Ellis secured one of the industry’s largest-ever third-party property management assignments, a 70 million square foot U.S. portfolio from RREEF America.  At the same time, the Company significantly expanded its outsourcing client roster adding eight new accounts, including CEVA Logistics, Ryder System, the State of Maryland and West Penn Allegheny Health System. The latter two reflect CB Richard Ellis’ increasing penetration of the growing government and health care sectors. The Company also expanded its service offering for eight existing outsourcing clients and renewed seven others.

The contractually-oriented U.S. property and facilities management business lines, which are part of the outsourcing business, performed particularly well in the third quarter of 2009.  These operations generated approximately $27 million of EBITDA versus approximately $24 million in the third quarter of 2008.  This performance demonstrates the resilience of these business lines during a market downturn as well as their significance to the overall Company.

CB Richard Ellis also continued to move nimbly to capture new opportunities resulting from the current market dislocations.  For example, the Company is marketing approximately $3 billion of distressed assets for sale in the U.S. (including properties for the FDIC), and in Europe is acting as special servicer for more than $6 billion of failed CMBS loan funds.

Successful Loan Modification Program
During the third quarter, the Company also reached agreement with its lenders to extend maturities and amortization schedules on $985 million of bank loans. This loan modification program is part of CB Richard Ellis’ strategy to strengthen its balance sheet.  This strategy included a $600 million capital raise ($150 million of equity and $450 million of senior subordinated notes) during the second quarter and comprehensive amendments to the Company’s Credit Agreement during the first quarter. Year-to-date, CB Richard Ellis has paid or pre-paid $429 million6 of amortization, and its total amortization between now and the end of 2012 is $393 million. Remaining term loans and bonds now mature in 2013, 2015 and 2017.  These actions put the Company on sound financial footing and provide significant financial flexibility.

Americas Segment Results
Revenue for the Americas region, including the U.S., Canada and Latin America, was $646.2 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $816.2 million for the third quarter of 2008.  Operating income for the Americas region was $47.7 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $67.8 million for the same period of 2008.  EBITDA for this region totaled $63.7 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $81.0 million in last year’s third quarter. While market conditions remained weak, revenue declines were largely offset by a 20% reduction in operating expenses compared with a year ago.

EMEA Segment Results
Revenue for the EMEA region, which mainly consists of operations in Europe, was $192.3 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $271.7 million for the third quarter of 2008.  The EMEA region reported operating income of $11.7 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $18.2 million for the same period in 2008.  EMEA reported EBITDA of $14.7 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $23.1 million for last year’s third quarter.  Partially offsetting the revenue decrease was a 36% reduction in operating expenses, compared to the prior-year period.

Asia Pacific Segment Results
In the Asia Pacific region, which includes operations in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, revenue totaled $131.6 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $141.5 million for the third quarter of 2008.  Operating income for the Asia Pacific region improved to $10.6 million for the third quarter of 2009 from $5.1 million for the same period of 2008.  EBITDA also increased to $13.0 million for the third quarter of 2009 from $9.1 million for last year’s third quarter. These improved results reflect modestly better business performance in countries such as Australia and China as well as the effect of cost containment efforts, which reduced operating expenses by 21% compared with the prior-year period.

Global Investment Management Segment Results
In the Global Investment Management segment, which consists of investment management operations in the U.S., Europe and Asia, revenue totaled $32.9 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $39.8 million in the third quarter of 2008.  The third-quarter revenue decline was attributable to lower asset management, acquisition and incentive fees than were achieved in the third quarter of 2008.  Operating income for the third quarter was $6.1 million compared with $20.7 million for the same period in 2008, while third-quarter EBITDA totaled $4.6 million, compared with $19.4 million in the year-earlier third quarter.  Excluding the impact of reversing net carried interest incentive compensation expense accruals, which totaled $6.0 million and $15.3 million for the third quarter of 2009 and 2008, respectively, Global Investment Management operating expenses decreased by 6% compared with the prior-year period. The lower carried-interest-related reversal, combined with the revenue decline, drove operating income and EBITDA lower in the quarter versus the prior-year quarter.

Assets under management totaled $34.9 billion at the end of the third quarter, down 4% from the second quarter of 2009 and 9% from year-end 2008. 

Development Services Segment Results
In the Development Services segment, which consists of real estate development and investment activities primarily in the U.S., revenue totaled $20.2 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared with $30.5 million for the third quarter of 2008.  Operating expenses for the quarter fell by 6% from a year earlier. Excluding one-time charges, primarily related to write-downs of real estate assets, operating expenses fell by 50% from a year earlier.  Development Services posted an operating loss of $19.1 million for the third quarter of 2009, compared to a $3.5 million operating loss for the same period in 2008.   Third-quarter 2009 EBITDA totaled $2.1 million, compared with $15.5 million in the prior year third quarter.  The operating loss for the third quarter of 2009 includes a gross, non-cash write-down of real estate assets of $17.2 million, but not the offsetting portion attributable to non-controlling interests of $15.7 million.  EBITDA includes both items.  Higher EBITDA in the prior-year period was primarily driven by gains on property sales classified as “discontinued operations,” which were included in the calculation of EBITDA, but not in the calculation of operating income/loss.  Such gains did not recur in the current year period.

Development projects in process as of September 30, 2009 totaled $5.1 billion, down 9% from year-end 2008. The inventory of pipeline deals as of September 30, 2009 stood at $1.0 billion, down 60% from year-end 2008.   

Nine-Month Results
For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company reported a net loss of $30.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, on a U.S. GAAP basis, compared with net income of $77.4 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, in 2008. Adjusted net income2 totaled $23.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the nine-month period, on revenue of $2.9 billion.  For the same period in 2008, adjusted net income totaled $121.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, on $3.8 billion of revenue.  EBITDA for the current year-to-date period totaled $205.0 million versus $335.5 million for the same period last year.  The one-time charges that negatively impacted EBITDA totaled $49.9 million7 in 2009 and $42.5 million8 in 2008.

Additional information concerning factors that may influence the Company's financial information is discussed under “Risk Factors”, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” and “Forward-Looking Statements” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, and under “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” and “Forward-Looking Statements” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, as well as in the Company’s press releases and other periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Such filings are available publicly and may be obtained on the Company’s Web site at www.cbre.com or upon request from the CB Richard Ellis Investor Relations Department at investorrelations@cbre.com. 

1One-time charges include a tax true-up related to the write-off of financing costs incurred in connection with the credit agreement amendment entered into on March 24, 2009, amortization expense related to customer relationships resulting from acquisitions, integration costs related to acquisitions, cost-containment expenses and the write-down of impaired assets.  

2A reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. to net income attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc., as adjusted for one-time items, is provided in the section of this release entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” 

3The Company’s management believes that EBITDA is useful in evaluating its operating performance compared to that of other companies in its industry because the calculation of EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of financing and income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending and acquisitions, which items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.  As a result, the Company’s management uses EBITDA as a measure to evaluate the operating performance of various business segments and for other discretionary purposes, including as a significant component when measuring its operating performance under its employee incentive programs. Additionally, management believes EBITDA is useful to investors to assist them in getting a more accurate picture of the Company’s results from operations.

However, EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and when analyzing the Company’s operating performance, readers should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, net income determined in accordance with GAAP.  Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company’s presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments.  The amounts shown for EBITDA also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled definitions in the Company’s debt instruments, which are further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges and are used to determine compliance with financial covenants and the Company’s ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt and making certain restricted payments.

For a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, the most comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, see the section of this press release titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

4Includes cost-containment expenses of $6.8 million, impairment of assets of $4.1 million, net of non-controlling interests (minority interest), and integration costs related to acquisitions of $0.9 million, the majority of which related to the Trammell Crow Company acquisition.

5Includes impairment of assets of $4.1 million, cost containment expenses of $3.4 million and integration costs related to acquisitions of $3.3 million, the majority of which related to the Trammell Crow Company acquisition.

6As a result of the loan modification, approximately $42 million of the revolver loan was converted into a term loan in August, 2009.

7Includes cost-containment expenses of $31.7 million, impairment of assets of $13.8 million, net of non-controlling interests (minority interest), and integration costs related to acquisitions of $4.4 million, the majority of which related to the Trammell Crow Company acquisition.

8Includes impairment of assets of $26.6 million and integration costs related to acquisitions of $12.5 million, the majority of which related to the Trammell Crow Company acquisition and cost containment expenses of $3.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The following measures are considered “non-GAAP financial measures” under SEC guidelines:

 

(i)                 Net income attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc., as adjusted for one-time items

 

(ii)               Diluted earnings per share attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc, as adjusted for one-time items

 

(iii)             EBITDA

                 

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more complete understanding of ongoing operations and enhance comparability of current results to prior periods as well as presenting the effects of one-time items in all periods presented.  The Company believes that investors may find it useful to see these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze financial performance without the impact of one-time items that may obscure trends in the underlying performance of its business.


Net income attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc., as adjusted for one-time items and diluted net income per share attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. shareholders, as adjusted for one-time items are calculated as follows (dollars in thousands, except per share data):
