LOS ANGELES--Ares Management, L.P. (NYSE:ARES) today reported its financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2017.
"Ares generated record second quarter earnings driven by strong fund appreciation and growth in management fees," said Tony Ressler, Chief Executive Officer of Ares. “Supported by more than $5 billion in new commitments in the second quarter and more than $15 billion raised over the past twelve months, we have crossed a major milestone for our firm, passing the $100 billion mark and ending the quarter with $104 billion in AUM.”
“Our results reflect our strong fundraising momentum, excellent investment performance, consistent deployment and an increased focus on harvesting our assets at attractive values,” said Michael Arougheti, President of Ares. “As a result, we are building a strong foundation for future value creation as evidenced by our 35% year over year increase in core fee related earnings and 59% year over year increase in net accrued performance fees, reflecting our potential to generate strong distributable earnings through this market cycle.”
Ares declared a quarterly distribution of $0.31 per common unit, payable on September 1, 2017 to common unitholders of record at the close of business on August 18, 2017.
Ares declared a distribution of $0.4375 per Series A Preferred Unit with a payment date of September 30, 2017 to preferred unitholders of record as of the close of business on September 15, 2017.
