CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. Reports Strong Earnings Growth on 24% Revenue Increase for the Third Quarter of 2010

October 26, 2010
Earnings Per Share Rise 150% From Third-Quarter 2009 to $0.20

LOS ANGELES, Oct 26, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) today reported strong earnings and revenue growth for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

  • Net income on a U.S. GAAP basis improved 361% to $57.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the third quarter, compared with $12.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009.
  • Excluding selected charges1, net income2 would have totaled $62.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the current-year quarter, compared with net income of $21.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2009.
  • Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)3 rose 73% to $169.9 million for the third quarter of 2010 from $98.1 million a year earlier. Excluding selected charges, EBITDA3 rose 60% to $175.5 million in the current period from $109.9 million in the third quarter of 2009.
  • Revenue for the quarter totaled $1.3 billion, an increase of 24% from $1.0 billion in the third quarter of 2009. This represents the strongest year-over-year quarterly revenue growth since the fourth quarter of 2007.

"Our global platform, service line depth, industry-leading brand and financial stability are driving our strong performance in this improved market environment," said Brett White, chief executive officer of CB Richard Ellis. "This is evident in our third quarter financial results, where we demonstrated solid revenue growth across all our business segments as well as strong operating leverage. Business momentum remains positive heading into year-end, notwithstanding sluggish global economic activity."

Revenue rose by double digits in each of the Company's primary geographies. The Americas - CB Richard Ellis' largest business segment - saw revenue rise by 26% in the current-year quarter, led by the continued rebound of property sales and leasing activity across the region. Overall, Americas property sales and leasing revenue increased 69% and 36%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2010.

Globally, property sales revenue jumped 63% in the third quarter of 2010 from the depressed levels of 2009's third quarter. This reflects a slow return of liquidity to the investment market, which has helped drive demand for commercial real estate, as well as CB Richard Ellis' improving market share in key markets globally. For example, the Company's share of U.S. investment sales activity rose to 17.9% in the third quarter of 2010, according to Real Capital Analytics, a more than 400 basis-point increase from the same quarter last year. In the United Kingdom, the Company's share of overall investment activity for the third quarter of 2010 increased more than 500 basis points from a year ago to 21.7%, according to Property Data.

In a major transaction that illustrates the Company's market position, following the close of the third quarter, CB Richard Ellis represented the State of California in the $2.3 billion sale-leaseback of an 11 office building portfolio. The transaction, the largest portfolio sale in the U.S. since 2008, is expected to close prior to year end.

Global leasing revenue also grew strongly at 27% in the third quarter of 2010, while property and facilities management rose by 7%, with notable growth in Asia Pacific and EMEA.

CB Richard Ellis sustained strong momentum in capturing new outsourcing business. The Company signed a record 19 long-term real estate outsourcing contracts with new clients during the third quarter. The Company's focus on further market penetration in the government and health care sectors resulted in new service contracts with the U.S. General Services Administration, Canadian Department of Public Works & Government Services and Northwestern Memorial Hospital, among others. Other new names added to the Company's outsourcing client roster included Air Liquide, Akzo Nobel, Capital One, Dupont, Green River Capital, Sainsbury's Supermarkets and United Technologies Corporation. In all, the Company completed 33 outsourcing contracts (new business, expansions and renewals) during the third quarter.

In early October, CB Richard Ellis completed the sale of $350 million of senior unsecured bonds, which mature in 2020, at a 6.625% fixed interest rate, and entered into discussions with its lenders to raise $650 million of new secured term loans and establish a new $700 million revolving credit facility. The Company has already used the net proceeds of the bond sale to pay down some of its existing term debt. In addition, it plans to use approximately $500 million of cash on hand and the $650 million of new secured term loans to retire the remainder of its existing term-loan debt. The new credit facility, which the Company anticipates will be on better terms than its existing facilities in terms of pricing and other features, is expected to be finalized in November.

"Our refinancing plan takes advantage of our improved financial performance and the low interest-rate environment to further strengthen our balance sheet and provide us greater flexibility as the market recovery unfolds," said Mr. White.

Third-Quarter 2010 Segment Results

Americas Region

Revenue for the Americas region, including the U.S., Canada and Latin America, rose 26% to $812.3 million for the third quarter of 2010, compared with $646.2 million for the third quarter of 2009. Operating income for the Americas region nearly doubled during the current quarter to $94.7 million from $47.7 million for the third quarter of 2009. EBITDA for this region totaled $110.5 million for the third quarter of 2010, up 73% from $63.7 million in last year's third quarter. The region saw meaningful improvement across all business lines during the quarter, and the significant profitability increase reflected a shift in revenue mix toward higher-margin transaction activity, while expense growth was contained.

EMEA Region

Revenue for the EMEA region, which mainly consists of operations in Europe, rose 12% to $215.8 million for the third quarter of 2010 from $192.3 million for the third quarter of 2009. The EMEA region reported operating income of $14.3 million for the current-year third quarter, up from $11.7 million for the same period in 2009. EBITDA totaled $17.8 million for the third quarter of 2010, more than 20% higher than the $14.7 million achieved in last year's third quarter. These improved results reflect better business performance in several countries, particularly France, Russia and the United Kingdom.

Asia Pacific Region

In the Asia Pacific region, which includes operations in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, revenue rose 27% to $167.4 million for the third quarter of 2010 from $131.6 million for the third quarter of 2009. Operating income for the region rose 28% to $13.6 million for the third quarter of 2010, compared with $10.6 million for the same period of 2009. EBITDA increased by 20% to $15.6 million for the third quarter of 2010 compared with $13.0 million for last year's third quarter. These improved results reflect better revenue performance in several countries, particularly Australia, India, Japan and Singapore, partially as a result of increased reimbursements, which had minimal bottom line impact.

Global Investment Management Business

Global Investment Management, which includes investment management operations in the U.S., Europe and Asia, saw revenue rise 51% to $49.5 million for the third quarter of 2010 from $32.9 million in the third quarter of 2009. Operating income nearly doubled to $11.6 million for the current-year quarter compared with $6.1 million in the same period of 2009. Third-quarter 2010 EBITDA also increased significantly to $16.7 million from $4.6 million in the prior-year third quarter. The current-year revenue, operating income and EBITDA improvements were partly attributable to 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. Also contributing to the positive results were higher acquisition and asset management fees in the current-year quarter, partially offset by greater reversals of net carried interest incentive compensation expense accruals in the prior-year third quarter.

Assets under management totaled $35.7 billion at the end of the third quarter, up 3% and 6%, respectively, from year-end 2009 and the second quarter of 2010.

Development Services

The Development Services segment, which consists of real estate development and investment activities primarily in the U.S., saw revenue increase to $21.3 million for the third quarter of 2010, compared with $20.2 million for the third quarter of 2009. The operating loss narrowed to $3.7 million for the current-year third quarter, compared with $19.1 million for the same period in 2009. Third-quarter 2010 EBITDA totaled $9.4 million, up from $2.1 million in the prior-year third quarter. The operating loss for the third quarter of 2009 included 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 included both items. Higher EBITDA in the current-year period was primarily driven by improved equity earnings as well as gains on property sales classified as "discontinued operations," which are included in the calculation of EBITDA, but not in operating income/loss.

As of September 30, 2010, development projects in process totaled $4.9 billion and the inventory of pipeline deals as of September 30, 2010 was $1.1 billion. These totals are up from $4.4 billion and $0.8 billion, respectively, at June 30, 2010 and $4.7 billion and $0.9 billion, respectively, at year-end 2009.

Nine-Month Results

For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, the Company reported net income on a U.S. GAAP basis of $105.2 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, a turnaround from a net loss of $30.9 million, or $0.11 loss per diluted share, in the same period of 2009. Excluding selected charges, net income would have totaled $124.5 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the nine-month period of 2010, a significant improvement from $23.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the year-earlier period. Revenue for the nine months increased 21% to $3.5 billion. EBITDA for the nine months nearly doubled to $406.5 million, compared with $205.0 million for the same period last year. Excluding selected charges, EBITDA would have totaled $428.2 million in the current year-to-date period, up 68% from $254.9 million for the same period last year.

Full-Year Outlook

In light of year-to-date performance and visibility through year-end, the Company now expects Earnings Per Share, as adjusted, for full-year 2010 to approximate a range of $0.65 to $0.70. This expectation is indicative of Management's belief that the commercial real estate cycle has turned to the positive, notwithstanding sluggish general economic growth.

1Selected charges include amortization expense related to customer relationships resulting from acquisitions, integration 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 (loss) 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 (loss) 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."
