  • Net income on a U.S. GAAP basis improved 48% to $95.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter, compared with $64.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Management Commentary

“The increasing pace of market recovery in 2010 was well matched to CB Richard Ellis’ strengths of people, brand and platform,” said Brett White, the Company’s chief executive officer. “Our professionals around the world executed extremely well and drove our second-most profitable year ever, punctuated by sizable increases in activity across virtually all business lines in the final quarter. We believe the market remains in the early stages of recovery, and we enter 2011 with excellent momentum in most business lines globally.” 

The Company posted double-digit revenue gains in the fourth quarter in every global business line except Development Services. Global property sales and leasing activity were particularly strong. Global leasing revenue grew by 35% compared with the fourth quarter of 2009 as market fundamentals continued to stabilize and demand for space rebounded. The strong growth was buoyed by the Company’s leading market position in the world’s major business centers. For example, during the fourth quarter, CB Richard Ellis arranged a 450,000 square foot headquarters lease for Société Générale -- the largest office lease in New York City in 2010. 

Global sales revenue improved 40% from the year-earlier fourth quarter, as credit availability broadened further and investor sentiment improved. This strong increase is particularly noteworthy because sales volumes had begun to rebound in late 2009 from the depressed levels earlier that year, making for tougher year-over-year comparisons in the current-year quarter.  

Outsourcing revenue, which includes property and facilities management, improved by 10%, led by the Americas, which benefited from continued expansion of its client base. The Company continued to sign outsourcing contracts globally at an exceptionally strong pace. A total of 34 long-term contracts were signed in the fourth quarter, matching the record level achieved in the second quarter of 2010.  This total included 18 new outsourcing clients – such as AIG, Allianz Firemen’s Fund, the City of Sacramento, Dentsu, Education Management LLC, the U.S. General Services Administration, Metro AG, and Tahitian Noni International – and 16 existing contract renewals or expansions.  

Geographically, revenue growth was led by the Americas. This business segment -- the Company’s largest – saw revenue rise 35%, powered by robust growth in both property sales (66%) and leasing (45%). Revenue rose 18% in Asia Pacific, paced by strong increases in India and China.  EMEA revenue rose by 7%, driven by continued strong growth in property sales in core markets, particularly in the U.K. and France. This was partially offset by more modest activity across other business lines, consistent with general economic conditions in the region. Significantly improved performance in the Global Investment Management business also contributed to the Company’s strong results for the fourth quarter. 

During the fourth quarter, EBITDA in the Americas Region was negatively impacted by approximately $30 million due to the reinstatement of discretionary incentive compensation earlier than anticipated, yet is within the previously-announced parameters for such cost reinstatements over time. This decision was made in light of the very strong financial performance in this segment and the Company overall.   

Fourth-Quarter 2010 Segment Results 

Americas Region (U.S., Canada and Latin America)

  • Revenue rose 35% to $1.0 billion, compared with $769.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.
  • Operating income rose to $107.4 million from $83.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.
  • EBITDA totaled $127.7 million, up 24% from $103.3 million in last year’s fourth quarter.
  • The region saw robust growth across most business lines and a shift in revenue mix toward higher-margin transaction activity, partially offset by the reinstatement of incentive compensation.

 

EMEA Region (primarily Europe)

  • Revenue rose 7% to $307.3 million from $287.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase was driven by growth in Germany, Ireland, Spain and the United Kingdom.
  • Operating income totaled $45.4 million compared with $48.4 million for the same period in 2009.
  • EBITDA totaled $47.6 million compared with $49.0 million in last year’s fourth quarter.
  • Operating income and EBITDA were negatively impacted in the current-year quarter by approximately $5.0 million from foreign currency translation. In addition, current-period results reflect higher costs associated with investments in our business, particularly in the U.K.

 

Asia Pacific Region (Asia, Australia and New Zealand)

  • Revenue rose 18% to $209.4 million from $177.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.
  • Operating income rose 41% to $33.5 million, compared with $23.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.
  • EBITDA increased 28% to $34.3 million compared with $26.8 million for last year’s fourth quarter.
  • The improved results reflect higher revenue and profitability in several countries, particularly Australia, China, India and Japan.

 

Global Investment Management Business (investment management operations in the U.S., Europe and Asia)

  • Revenue more than doubled to $79.8 million from $38.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.  The Company recognized revenue of $19.9 million from a fund liquidation (carried interest revenue) but did not recognize any such revenue in the prior-year fourth quarter.  Higher acquisition and asset management fees in the current-year quarter also contributed to the revenue increase.
  • Operating income totaled $13.4 million, a strong improvement from an operating loss of $0.7 million in the same period of 2009.
  • EBITDA also increased significantly to $26.0 million from an EBITDA loss of $2.3 million in the prior-year fourth quarter.  
  • The improved results were mainly attributable to the increase in revenue as well as higher equity earnings associated with our partnership interest in the liquidated fund. This was partially offset by carried interest incentive compensation expense accruals of $19.8 million related to the fund that liquidated during the quarter as well as future fund liquidations. It compared with a net reversal of $0.2 million in the prior-year period. In addition, results were positively impacted by the reversal of a provision for management fee receivables from another fund that improved its liquidity position during the quarter. 
  • The current-year revenue, operating income and EBITDA were also positively impacted by the consolidation of several properties for financial reporting purposes due to a change in accounting regulations effective January 1, 2010. This accounting change had no bottom line impact. 
  • Assets under management rose to $37.6 billion, up 8% from year-end 2009 and 5% from the third quarter of 2010. 

 

Development Services (real estate development and investment activities primarily in the U.S.)

  • Revenue totaled $17.4 million, compared with $24.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.
  • Operating loss totaled $26.8 million, up from an operating loss of $14.6 million for the same period in 2009.
  • EBITDA improved to $5.4 million from an EBITDA loss of $9.6 million in the prior-year fourth quarter. 
  • The wider operating loss was primarily attributable to non-cash write-downs of real estate assets of $24.6 million versus $9.2 million in the prior year period.  The operating loss did not include the offsetting portion attributable to non-controlling interests of $22.2 million and $6.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and 2009, respectively. EBITDA, however, included both items.
  • Improved EBITDA in the current-year period was primarily driven by improved equity earnings associated with gains on property sales. 
  • Development projects in process totaled $4.9 billion and the inventory of pipeline deals stood at $1.2 billion.  The in-process total was unchanged from the third quarter of 2010 and up $0.2 billion from year-end 2009. The pipeline was up $0.1 billion from third-quarter 2010 and $0.3 billion from year-end 2009.    
     

2011 Outlook

Given the strong momentum across all business lines in 2010, and particularly in the fourth quarter, the Company anticipates that Earnings Per Share, as adjusted, will be in the range of $0.95 to $1.05 in 2011. The Company is comfortable with this guidance because it believes the market is in the early stages of a commercial real estate recovery that will continue in 2011. However, the Company also recognizes the robust growth achieved in 2010 will make for tougher comparisons in 2011.  In formulating its guidance, the Company took into account the fact that interest expense will be lower in 2011 as a result of its debt paydown and refinancing activities over the past year.

Note:  This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the ''safe harbor'' provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding our future growth momentum, operations and financial performance.  These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the Company’s actual results and performance in future periods to be materially different from any future results or performance suggested in forward-looking statements in this release.  Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release and, except to the extent required by applicable securities laws, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise any of them to reflect actual results, any changes in expectations or any change in events.  If the Company does update one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that it will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.  Factors that could cause results to differ materially include, but are not limited to: general conditions of financial liquidity for real estate transactions; our leverage and our ability to perform under our credit facilities; commercial real estate vacancy levels; employment conditions and their effect on vacancy rates; property values; rental rates; interest rates; realization of values in investment funds to offset related incentive compensation expense; our ability to leverage our platform to grow revenues and capture market share; our ability to retain and incentivize producers; the integration of our acquisitions and the level of synergy savings achieved as a result; a decline in asset values in, or a reduction in earnings or cash flow from, our investment programs, as well as related litigation, liabilities and reputational harm; and our ability to comply with laws and regulations related to our international operations, including the anti-corruption laws of the U.S. and other countries. 

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, 2009 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 September 30, 2010, 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.   

1Selected charges include amortization expense related to customer relationships resulting from acquisitions, integration and other costs related to acquisitions, cost-containment expenses, the write-down of impaired assets and the write-off of financing costs.    

2A reconciliation of net income attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. to net income attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc., as adjusted for selected charges, is provided in the section of this press 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. Amounts shown for EBITDA, as adjusted, remove the impact of certain cash and non-cash charges related to acquisitions, cost containment and asset impairments. 

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

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 selected charges

 

(ii)               Diluted income per share attributable to CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc, as adjusted for selected charges

 

(iii)             EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted for selected charges

                 

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 selected charges 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 selected charges that may obscure trends in the underlying performance of its business.

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