CBRE Group, Inc. Reports Strong Revenue and Earnings for Third-Quarter 2011

Earnings per Share Rise 20% to $0.24

Los Angeles, CA – October 27, 2011 CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) today reported strong revenue and earnings for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.   

  • Revenue for the quarter totaled $1.5 billion, an increase of 21% from $1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2010.   
  • Net income on a U.S. GAAP basis improved to $63.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 12% and 11%, respectively, from $57.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2010.  
  • Excluding selected charges1, net income2 totaled $77.7 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the current-year quarter, up 24% and 20%, respectively, from $62.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2010. 
  • Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)3 rose 5% to $179.0 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $169.9 million a year earlier.  Excluding selected charges, EBITDA3 increased 11% to $194.8 million in the current period from $175.5 million in the third quarter of 2010. EBITDA and EBITDA, excluding selected charges, included $7.4 million of net carried-interest expense (versus a benefit of $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2010) in the Global Investment Management business, and $8.6 million of insurance and legal reserves in the Americas business. Without these expenses, EBITDA, excluding selected charges, would have risen 21% for the quarter.

Management Commentary
“We are very pleased to report double-digit growth in revenue, earnings and adjusted EBITDA during a time of increased financial market volatility and economic uncertainty,” said Brett White, chief executive officer of CBRE.  “Global revenue rose significantly in nearly all of our major service lines and geographies, reflecting the durability of the commercial real estate market recovery, coupled with our ability to improve market share in an uneven macro environment.  

“Particularly notable was the strong growth in outsourcing, where we are benefiting from our focus on expanding our contractual relationships with space occupiers, especially in Europe and Asia Pacific. While the growth rate moderated somewhat in our capital markets businesses – property sales and mortgage brokerage – due, in part, to tougher year-over-year comparisons, revenue from these businesses nevertheless posted healthy gains, fueled by the Americas.”  

Outsourcing revenue improved 19% -- the strongest growth rate for this business line since the third quarter of 2008 -- as new clients have been on-boarded at a record pace and penetration of international markets has accelerated.   

CBRE signed a record 49 long-term outsourcing contracts in the quarter, including 20 with new clients.  This is the third consecutive quarter in which the Company has established a new record for total outsourcing contracts.  The Company continued to cultivate outsourcing relationships in the health care and government markets, signing 15 total contracts in these two sectors during the quarter.   

Global property sales rose 23% for the quarter, driven by exceptionally strong growth in the Americas (up 42%), which offset essentially flat performance in EMEA and Asia Pacific.  Commercial mortgage brokerage revenue rose 32%, reflecting the continued availability of debt capital at attractive pricing.  For the quarter, global mortgage activity (loan originations and sales) improved 52% from a year ago to approximately $5.8 billion.   

Property leasing revenue was also up strongly, rising 19% globally for the quarter. All regions improved from a year ago at a double-digit pace, with robust growth in Asia Pacific and EMEA. 

Despite heightened concern about sovereign debt issues in Europe, EMEA registered the strongest revenue growth among CBRE’s global regions.  The region’s 28% overall revenue increase for the quarter was bolstered by a 48% jump in outsourcing revenue. The growth in outsourcing reflects the diversification of EMEA’s business base, and increased adoption of outsourcing in the European marketplace.  In addition, property leasing revenue rose 33%, as CBRE closed sizable transactions in the third quarter in France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.  

Asia Pacific revenue also improved sharply.  The region’s total revenue rose 24%, led by increases of 41% in property leasing and 21% in outsourcing.  The Americas, CBRE’s largest region, saw revenue rise 17%, as all service lines in this region posted solid double- digit percentage increases.  

Revenue in the Company’s Global Investment Management business increased 56% during the quarter.  This included revenue from CBRE Clarion Securities, the global listed real estate securities business acquired from ING Group, N.V., on July 1, 2011. Following the end of the third quarter, the Company closed on its acquisition of ING’s real estate investment management (ING REIM) business in Asia, and plans to complete its acquisition of the ING REIM business in Europe before year-end. 

During the third quarter, CBRE also acquired two niche service providers that further strengthened its services platform in Europe: a retail services business in the United Kingdom, and a shopping center management business in the Netherlands.  

Mr. White added: “Globally, the commercial real estate market recovery continues, albeit hesitantly, amid weak growth in many of the world’s leading economies.  That said, our third-quarter results demonstrate our ability to perform for clients and shareholders in a difficult market environment. We are very well positioned for this recovery cycle, with a strong balance sheet, and remain keenly focused on sustaining our growth and improving our operating leverage going forward.”  

Third-Quarter 2011 Segment Results 

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

  • Revenue rose 17% to $954.2 million, compared with $812.3 million for the third quarter of 2010.
  • Operating income rose 13% to $107.0 million from $94.7 million for the prior-year third quarter.
  • EBITDA totaled $126.2 million, up 14% from $110.5 million in last year’s third quarter. Operating income and EBITDA were negatively impacted by higher legal and insurance reserves in the current quarter.
  • The region saw double-digit revenue growth across most business lines.

 

EMEA Region (primarily Europe)

  • Revenue rose 28% to $276.0 million from $215.8 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase was driven by growth in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
  • Operating income rose 22% to $17.5 million compared with $14.3 million for the same period in 2010.
  • EBITDA increased 19% to $21.1 million compared with $17.8 million in last year’s third quarter.
  • Current-period operating income and EBITDA reflect investments in staffing and resources for significantly increased outsourcing activity, a lack of material recovery in capital markets activity, as well as strategic hiring in late 2010 and 2011.   

Asia Pacific Region (Asia, Australia and New Zealand)

  • Revenue rose 24% to $208.1 million from $167.4 million for the third quarter of 2010.
  • Operating income rose 42% to $19.3 million, compared with $13.6 million for the third quarter of 2010.
  • EBITDA increased 40% to $21.8 million compared with $15.6 million for last year’s third quarter.
  • The sharply improved results reflect higher revenue in several countries, particularly Australia/New Zealand, China, Japan and India.

 

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

  • Revenue increased 56% to $77.4 million from $49.5 million in the third quarter of 2010.  The increase was driven by higher asset management fees primarily attributable to the CBRE Clarion Securities acquisition, which was completed at the beginning of the quarter.  Also contributing to the increase was higher incentive fees in the current-year period.
  • Operating loss totaled $0.3 million, compared with operating income of $11.6 million for the third quarter of 2010.
  • EBITDA totaled $6.2 million compared with $16.7 million in the prior-year third quarter.  
  • Current-year operating results and EBITDA include $9.4 million of costs associated with the acquisition of the ING REIM businesses as well as a net carried interest incentive compensation accrual of $7.4 million, compared with a $1.4 million net reversal of carried interest in the prior-year period.
  • Assets under management totaled $53.5 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2011—including the listed securities business acquired from ING -- up 42% from year-end 2010 and 50% from the third quarter of 2010. The third-quarter 2011 total excludes $5.0 billion of assets managed by ING REIM Asia, which was acquired on October 3, 2011.

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

  • Revenue totaled $18.8 million compared with $21.3 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was primarily due to lower rental revenue resulting from property dispositions. 
  • Operating loss narrowed to $0.4 million as compared with an operating loss of $3.7 million for the same period in 2010, primarily driven by higher gains from property dispositions from sales of properties which are consolidated. 
  • EBITDA totaled $3.8 million compared with $9.4 million in the prior-year third quarter. Third-quarter 2010 EBITDA benefited from gains on the sale of properties reflected in equity income from unconsolidated subsidiaries and income from discontinued operations, partially offset by non-controlling interests activity, all of which did not occur to the same extent in the current year. Equity income from unconsolidated subsidiaries, income from discontinued operations, and activity associated with non-controlling interests are all included in the calculation of EBITDA, but not operating income.
  • Development projects in process totaled $5.1 billion, up $0.2 billion from both year-end 2010 and the third quarter of 2010. The inventory of pipeline deals rose to $1.5 billion, up $0.3 billion from year-end 2010 and $0.4 billion from the third quarter of 2010.   

Nine-Month Results

  • Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 totaled $4.1 billion, an increase of 20% from $3.5 billion in the nine months ended September 30, 2010. 
  • Net income on a U.S. GAAP basis rose 52% to $159.4 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared with $105.2 million, or $0.33 per diluted share for the same period in 2010.
  • Excluding selected charges, net income totaled $185.2 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, for the current year-to-date period, an increase of 49% and 46%, respectively, from $124.5 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.
  • EBITDA rose 13% to $458.1 million for the first nine months of 2011 from $406.5 million a year earlier.  Excluding selected charges, EBITDA improved 14% to $487.7 million in the current nine-month period from $428.2 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2010.

 

Outlook
Despite tepid global economic growth, the commercial real estate recovery continues.  Accordingly, management is re-affirming its expectations for full year 2011 earnings in the range of $0.95 to $1.05 per share.

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, 2010 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, 2011, 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 written request from the CBRE Investor Relations Department at investorrelations@cbre.com.   

1 Selected charges include integration and other costs related to acquisitions, amortization expense related to customer relationships acquired in the Trammell Crow Company (TCC) acquisition, the write-down of impaired assets and cost containment expenses.    

2 A reconciliation of net income attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. to net income attributable to CBRE Group, Inc., as adjusted for selected charges, is provided in the section of this press release entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” 

3 EBITDA represents earnings before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, while amounts shown for EBITDA, as adjusted, remove the impact of certain cash and non-cash charges related to acquisitions, cost containment and asset impairments.  Our management believes that both of these measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry because the calculations of EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, generally eliminate the effects of financing and income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending and acquisitions, which would include impairment charges of goodwill and intangibles created from acquisitions. Such items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.  As a result, our management uses these measures to evaluate operating performance and for other discretionary purposes, including as a significant component when measuring our operating performance under our employee incentive programs. Additionally, we believe EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, are useful to investors to assist them in getting a more complete picture of our results from operations. 

However, EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, are not recognized measurements under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, readers should use EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, in addition to, and not as an alternative for, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, are not intended to be measures of free cash flow for our management’s discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments. The amounts shown for EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted, also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled definitions in our 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 our ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt and making certain restricted payments.

For a reconciliation of EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted to net income attributable to CBRE 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.”
