Friday, November 02, 2012

Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC Reports 2012 Third Quarter Results07:30 EDT Friday, November 02, 20122012 Third Quarter Dividend of $0.12 per Class A ShareNEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC (NYSE:OZM) (the "Company" or "Och-Ziff") today reported a GAAP Net Loss(1) of $127.5 million, or $0.89 per basic and diluted Class A Share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company also declared a $0.12 per share cash dividend on its Class A Shares for the 2012 third quarter.Summary HighlightsDistributable Earnings of $61.7 million, or $0.14 per Adjusted Class A Share, for the 2012 third quarter, compared to $49.9 million, or $0.12 per Adjusted Class A Share, for the 2011 third quarter. Assets under management of $31.0 billion as of October 1, 2012, compared to $29.3 billion as of July 1, 2012, and $28.5 billion as of October 1, 2011. Estimated assets under management of $31.8 billion as of November 1, 2012, which reflected year-to-date performance-related appreciation of $2.8 billion and capital net inflows of approximately $200 million. Estimated year-to-date net returns through October 31, 2012 of the OZ Master Fund of +9.4%, the OZ Europe Master Fund of +7.8%, the OZ Asia Master Fund of +3.5% and the OZ Global Special Investments Master Fund of +7.8%."During the third quarter and through October, we continued to build on the strong performance we generated in the first half of this year," said Daniel S. Och, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Och-Ziff. "Against a backdrop of mixed macroeconomic conditions globally, we actively managed our exposures and remained opportunistic in deploying capital in each of our portfolios. Our long history of generating profits for our fund investors and the ongoing strength of our investment performance demonstrate the value of the deep expertise we have in each of our investment strategies. "Interest in both our multi-strategy and dedicated credit platforms remains strong. While we believe that concerns about the weak macroeconomic environment, the ongoing difficulties in Europe, central bank actions and other factors continued to weigh on near-term investor confidence, we remain confident that allocations to the industry will become significant as institutional investors increasingly seek to enhance the yield and reduce the volatility of both their equity and fixed income portfolios. We believe that these drivers of secular growth will continue to increase in importance as market conditions remain unsettled and interest rates stay extremely low." (1) References to the Company's GAAP Net Loss throughout this press release refer to the Company's GAAP Net Loss Allocated to Class A Shareholders.GAAP NET LOSS ALLOCATED TO CLASS A SHAREHOLDERSFor the 2012 third quarter, Och-Ziff reported a GAAP Net Loss of $127.5 million, or $0.89 per basic and diluted Class A Share, compared to a GAAP Net Loss of $93.1 million, or $0.93 per basic and $0.96 per diluted Class A Share, for the 2011 third quarter. For the first nine months of 2012, Och-Ziff reported a GAAP Net Loss of $366.5 million, or $2.58 per basic and diluted Class A Share, compared to a GAAP Net Loss of $282.0 million, or $2.87 per basic and diluted Class A Share, for the first nine months of 2011.The year-over-year increases in the GAAP Net Loss were primarily due to an increase in the Company's interest in its principal operating subsidiaries (the "Och-Ziff Operating Group") driven by the public offering of 33.3 million Class A Shares in November 2011, the issuance of Class A Shares related to the vesting of Class A Restricted Share Units ("RSUs") and the exchange of Och-Ziff Operating Group A Units ("Group A Units") for Class A Shares. Because of the increase in the Company's interest in the Och-Ziff Operating Group, a larger portion of the losses of the Och-Ziff Operating Group was allocated to the Company. Partially offsetting the year-over-year increase in the GAAP Net Loss in both periods was higher profitability in the Och-Ziff Operating Group.The GAAP Net Loss in the 2012 third quarter and first nine months primarily resulted from non-cash expenses of $398.5 million and $1.2 billion, respectively, associated with the Company's reorganization in connection with its initial public offering ("IPO") in November 2007. These expenses are related to the amortization of Group A Units, which represent equity interests in the Och-Ziff Operating Group that were issued to the Company's pre-IPO limited partners in exchange for their pre-IPO interests in those subsidiaries. The Group A Units generally vest annually over five years through November 2012, and therefore the amortization of these expenses is expected to result in a GAAP Net Loss on an annual basis through the end of this year. Once vested, Group A Units may be exchanged on a one-to-one basis for Class A Shares, subject to minimum ownership requirements and transfer restrictions.Additionally, the GAAP Net Loss in the 2012 third quarter and first nine months was driven by non-cash expenses of $16.2 million and $50.3 million, respectively, for the amortization of equity-based compensation. These expenses primarily relate to RSUs granted to employees and executive managing directors, as well as Group A Units granted to executive managing directors subsequent to the IPO. Each RSU represents the right to receive one Class A Share upon vesting.Throughout this press release, the Company presents financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP. For a discussion of these non-GAAP measures, please see the discussion of "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" at the end of this press release.DISTRIBUTABLE EARNINGS (NON-GAAP)The Company's Distributable Earnings for the 2012 third quarter were $61.7 million, or $0.14 per Adjusted Class A Share, compared to $49.9 million, or $0.12 per Adjusted Class A Share, for the 2011 third quarter. Distributable Earnings for the first nine months of 2012 were $186.1 million, or $0.41 per Adjusted Class A Share, compared to $182.8 million, or $0.44 per Adjusted Class A Share, in the first nine months of 2011.The year-over-year increase in Distributable Earnings for both periods was principally driven by lower taxes, partially offset by higher non-compensation expenses and lower management fees. Also contributing to the increase for the year-to-date period was higher incentive income and lower compensation and benefits expenses.Distributable Earnings is a non-GAAP measure. For reconciliations of Distributable Earnings to the respective GAAP Net Losses for the periods discussed above, please see Exhibits 2 and 3 that accompany this press release. Additionally, please see the discussion of "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" at the end of this press release, including the definitions of Distributable Earnings and Adjusted Class A Shares.ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENTOch-Ziff's assets under management were $31.3 billion as of September 30, 2012, $1.4 billion higher than $29.9 billion as of June 30, 2012, and $2.5 billion higher than $28.8 billion as of September 30, 2011. The year-over-year increase was driven by performance-related appreciation of $2.5 billion, partially offset by capital net outflows of $16.4 million.Assets under management by fund:% Change (1)(dollars in billions)September 30, 2012June 30, 2012September 30, 2011Sep. 2012 vs.Jun. 2012Sep. 2012 vs.Sep. 2011OZ Master Fund$                 21.4$                 20.8$                 20.03%7%OZ Europe Master Fund2.02.12.4-3%-18%OZ Asia Master Fund1.41.61.6-8%-11%OZ Global Special Investments    Master Fund1.01.01.02%5%Other (1) (2)5.54.43.821%46%(1) Rounding differences may occur.(2) Includes real estate funds, credit funds and other alternative investment vehicles managed by the Company.Estimated assets under management were $31.8 billion as of November 1, 2012, which reflected estimated year-to-date performance-related appreciation of $2.8 billion and capital net inflows of approximately $200 million.INVESTMENT PERFORMANCEFor the first nine months, performance was driven primarily by the structured credit, long/short equity special situations and corporate credit strategies.Net returns by fund(1):2012JulyAugustSeptember3QYTD Sept.OZ Master Fund0.78%1.27%1.43%3.52%8.57%OZ Europe Master Fund0.49%0.75%1.69%2.95%6.43%OZ Asia Master Fund0.45%0.37%1.07%1.90%4.23%OZ Global Special Investments Master Fund0.49%0.62%1.30%2.43%7.50%(1) Please see important disclosures on Exhibit 7 that accompanies this press release.ECONOMIC INCOME (NON-GAAP)In addition to analyzing the Company's results on a GAAP basis, management also reviews the Company's results on an "Economic Income" basis. Economic Income excludes certain adjustments that are required for presentation of the Company's results on a GAAP basis, but that management does not consider when evaluating operating performance in any given period. Management evaluates Economic Income for the Och-Ziff Funds segment, the Company's only reportable segment under GAAP, and for the Company's Other Operations. Economic Income for the Company equals the sum of Economic Income for the Och-Ziff Funds segment and the Company's Other Operations.For reconciliations of Economic Income and its components to the respective GAAP measures, please see Exhibits 2 through 5 that accompany this press release. Additionally, please see the discussion of "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" at the end of this press release.The Company conducts substantially all of its business through the Och-Ziff Funds segment, which provides asset management services to its hedge funds and other alternative investment vehicles. The Company's Other Operations are primarily comprised of its real estate business, which provides asset management services to its real estate funds.Economic Income Revenues (Non-GAAP)Economic Income revenues for the 2012 third quarter were $130.4 million, a 2% decrease from Economic Income revenues of $132.9 million for the 2011 third quarter. Management fees were $122.0 million, a 2% decrease from management fees of $124.3 million for the prior-year period.  Incentive income was $8.1 million, essentially unchanged from the prior-year period.Economic Income revenues for the first nine months of 2012 were $391.7 million, a slight increase from Economic Income revenues of $391.1 million for the first nine months of 2011. Management fees were $363.1 million, a slight decrease from management fees of $367.6 million for the prior-year period. Incentive income was $27.7 million compared to $21.9 million in the prior-year period.The decrease in Economic Income revenues for the quarter-to-date period was primarily due to a $2.3 million decline in management fees, primarily in the Och-Ziff Funds segment. This change was primarily due to lower average management fee rates on our assets under management in 2012 compared to 2011. Our average management fee rate decreased to 1.62% in the 2012 third quarter from 1.66% in the 2011 third quarter. This change was primarily due to growth in our dedicated credit platforms and other longer-term assets under management, as well as the launch of our first CLO, each of which generally have lower management fee rates than our traditional hedge fund products. The increase in Economic Income revenues for the year-to-date period was primarily due to higher incentive income in the Och-Ziff Funds segment, driven by $11.3 million of incentive income recognized in the second quarter of 2012 related to assets under management subject to three-year performance measurement periods. Partially offsetting this increase was a $6.0 million decrease in incentive income related to tax distributions taken in the first quarter of 2011 that did not recur in the first quarter of 2012. The increase was also partially offset by a $4.5 million decrease in management fees, primarily in the Company's Other Operations, driven by a catch-up in the first three quarters of 2011 for additional investors in our second domestic real estate fund. These investors were charged management fees retroactively to the initial closing of the fund. Compensation and Benefits (Non-GAAP)Compensation and benefits for the 2012 third quarter totaled $23.3 million, 4% lower than compensation and benefits of $24.2 million for the 2011 third quarter. Salaries and benefits for the 2012 third quarter totaled $20.2 million, an 8% increase from salaries and benefits of $18.7 million for the prior-year period.Compensation and benefits for the first nine months of 2012 totaled $66.0 million, 7% lower than compensation and benefits of $70.7 million for the first nine months of 2011. Salaries and benefits for the first nine months of 2012 totaled $59.0 million, an 8% increase from salaries and benefits of $54.6 million for the prior-year period.The year-over-year decrease in compensation and benefits for both periods was primarily driven by the Och-Ziff Funds segment and was due to a decrease in guaranteed bonus expense, partially offset by an increase in salaries and benefits due in part to an increase in our worldwide headcount.The ratio of salaries and benefits to management fees increased to 17% in the 2012 third quarter and 16% in the first nine months of 2012 from 15% in both the 2011 third quarter and first nine months of 2011 due to the year-over-year increases in salaries and benefits while management fees decreased.Non-Compensation Expenses (Non-GAAP)Non-compensation expenses for the 2012 third quarter totaled $25.6 million, 17% higher than non-compensation expenses of $21.8 million for the 2011 third quarter. Non-compensation expenses for the first nine months of 2012 totaled $73.3 million, a 13% increase from non-compensation expenses of $64.9 million for the prior-year period.The increase in non-compensation expenses for both periods was driven primarily by higher professional services, primarily driven by the Och-Ziff Funds segment. Also contributing to the year-to-date increase were higher information processing and communications expenses, as well as higher commitment fees on the unused portion of our delayed draw term loan prior to the final draw down in June 2012.  Partially offsetting the increase for the year-to-date period was lower interest expense.The ratio of non-compensation expenses to management fees increased to 21% in the 2012 third quarter and 20% in the first nine months of 2012 from 18% in both the 2011 third quarter and the first nine months of 2011. The year-over-year increase in both periods was driven by higher non-compensation expenses while management fees decreased.Economic Income (Non-GAAP)Economic Income for the 2012 third quarter was $81.3 million, 6% lower than Economic Income of $86.6 million for the 2011 third quarter. Economic Income for the first nine months of 2012 was $251.2 million, a slight decline from Economic Income of $253.5 million for the prior-year period.The year-over-year decrease for both periods was principally driven by increased non-compensation expenses and a decline in management fees, partially offset by lower compensation and benefits.  Partially offsetting the decrease in Economic Income for the year-to-date period was higher incentive income.CAPITALAs of September 30, 2012, the number of Class A Shares outstanding was 143,480,713. For purposes of calculating Distributable Earnings per Share, the Company assumes that all the interests held by its executive managing directors and Ziff Investors Partnership, L.P. II and certain of its affiliates and control persons (the "Ziffs") in the Och-Ziff Operating Group (collectively, "Partner Units") and RSUs outstanding during the period have been converted on a one-to-one basis into Class A Shares ("Adjusted Class A Shares"). For the third quarter and first nine months ended September 30, 2012, the total weighted-average Adjusted Class A Shares outstanding were 454,503,679 and 454,032,361, respectively.DIVIDENDThe Board of Directors of Och-Ziff declared a 2012 third-quarter dividend of $0.12 per Class A Share. The dividend is payable on November 19, 2012 to holders of record as of the close of business on November 12, 2012. The ex-dividend date will be November 8, 2012.For U.S. federal income tax purposes, the dividend will be treated as a partnership distribution.  Based on the best information currently available, the Company estimates that when calculating withholding taxes, the entire amount of the 2012 third-quarter dividend will be treated as U.S. source dividend income.Non-U.S. holders of Class A Shares are generally subject to U.S. federal withholding tax at a rate of 30% (subject to reduction by applicable treaty or other exception) on their share of U.S. source dividends and certain other types of U.S. source income realized by the Company. With respect to interest, however, no withholding is generally required if proper certification (on an IRS Form W-8) of a beneficial owner's foreign status has been filed with the withholding agent.  Non-U.S. holders must generally provide the withholding agent with a properly completed IRS Form W-8 to obtain any reduction in withholding.*          *          *          *The Company will host a conference call today, November 2, 2012, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss its 2012 third-quarter results. The call will be open to the public and can be accessed by dialing +1-888-713-4216 (callers inside the U.S.) or +1-617-213-4868 (callers outside the U.S.).  The number should be dialed at least ten minutes prior to the start of the call and the passcode will be 64783245. A simultaneous webcast of the call will be available to the public on a listen-only basis on the Class A Shareholders section of the Company's website (www.ozcap.com). For those unable to listen to the live broadcast, a replay will be available by dialing +1-888-286-8010 (callers inside the U.S.) or +1-617-801-6888 (callers outside the U.S.), passcode 34643843, beginning approximately two hours after the event for two weeks.  A webcast replay of the event will also be available on the Company's website as noted above.*          *          *          *Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThe Company's non-GAAP measures should not be considered as alternatives to the Company's GAAP Net Loss or cash flow from operations, or as indicative of liquidity or the cash available to fund operations. The Company's non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.For reconciliations of the Company's non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, please see Exhibits 2 through 5 that accompany this press release. Economic IncomeIn addition to analyzing the Company's results on a GAAP basis, management also reviews the Company's results on an "Economic Income" basis. Economic Income for the Company, the Och-Ziff Funds segment and Other Operations excludes the adjustments described below that are required for presentation of the Company's results on a GAAP basis, but that management does not consider when evaluating the operating performance of the Company in any given period. Management, therefore, uses Economic Income as the basis on which it evaluates the financial performance of the Company and makes resource allocation and other operating decisions.  Management considers it important that investors review the same operating information that it uses.Economic Income is a measure of pre-tax operating performance that excludes the following from the Company's results on a GAAP basis: Income allocations to the Company's executive managing directors and the Ziffs on their direct interests in the Och-Ziff Operating Group. Management reviews operating performance at the Och-Ziff Operating Group level, where substantially all of the Company's operations are performed, prior to making any income allocations. Reorganization expenses related to the Company's IPO, equity-based compensation expenses and depreciation and amortization expenses, as management does not consider these non-cash expenses to be reflective of operating performance. Changes in the tax receivable agreement liability and net gains (losses) on investments in Och-Ziff funds, as management does not consider these items to be reflective of operating performance. Amounts related to the consolidated Och-Ziff funds, including the related eliminations of management fees and incentive income, as management reviews the total amount of management fees and incentive income earned in relation to total assets under management and fund performance.   In addition, the full amount of deferred cash compensation and expenses related to compensation arrangements based on annual investment performance are recognized on the date they are determined (generally in the fourth quarter of each year), as management determines the total amount of compensation based on the Company's performance in the year of the award. As a result of the adjustments described above, as well as an adjustment to present management fees net of recurring placement and related service fees (rather than considering these fees an expense), management fees, compensation and benefits, non-compensation expenses and net income (loss) allocated to noncontrolling interests as presented on an Economic Income basis are also non-GAAP measures. No adjustments to the GAAP basis have been made for incentive income, other revenues and net gains (losses) on joint ventures.  Distributable EarningsDistributable Earnings is a non-GAAP measure of after-tax operating performance and equals Economic Income less Adjusted Income Taxes. Adjusted Income Taxes are estimated assuming the conversion of all outstanding Partner Units into Class A Shares, on a one-to-one basis, and include the impact of payments under the tax receivable agreement. Therefore, all income (loss) of the Och-Ziff Operating Group allocated to the Partner Units is treated as if it were allocated to Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC. Partner Units represent interests in the Och-Ziff Operating Group held by the Company's executive managing directors and the Ziffs, including the Group A Units and Group D Units.  Distributable Earnings per Share is equal to Distributable Earnings divided by the weighted-average number of Adjusted Class A Shares. Management believes Distributable Earnings provides useful information to investors because it uses Distributable Earnings, among other financial information, to determine the earnings available to distribute as dividends to holders of the Company's Class A Shares and to the Company's executive managing directors and the Ziffs with respect to their Partner Units. *          *          *          *Forward-Looking StatementsThis press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which reflect the Company's current views with respect to, among other things, future events and financial performance.

Net return is presented on a total return basis, net of all fees and expenses (except incentive income on unrealized gains attributable to investments that the Company, as investment manager, determines lack a readily ascertainable fair value, are illiquid or otherwise should be held until the resolution of a special event or circumstance ("Special Investments") that could reduce returns on these investments at the time of realization), and includes the reinvestment of all dividends and other income. Performance includes realized and unrealized gains and losses attributable to Special Investments and initial public offering investments that are not allocated to all investors in the feeder funds. Investors that were not allocated Special Investments and/or initial public offering investments may experience materially different returns. (2) This comparison shows the returns of the S&P 500 Index (SPTR) and the MSCI World Index (GDDLWI) ("Broader Market Indices") against certain Och-Ziff funds (the "funds"). This comparison is intended solely for illustrative purposes to show a historical comparison of the funds to the broader equity markets, as represented by the Broader Market Indices, and should not be considered as an indication of how the funds will perform relative to the Broader Market Indices in the future. The Broader Market Indices are not performance benchmarks of the funds. The funds are not managed to correlate in any way with the returns or composition of the Broader Market Indices, which are unmanaged. It is not possible to invest in an unmanaged index. You should not assume that there is any material overlap between the securities in the funds and those that comprise the Broader Market Indices. The S&P 500 Index is an equity index whose value is calculated as the free-float weighted average of the share prices of the 500 large-cap companies listed on the NYSE and NASDAQ. The MSCI World Index is a free-float adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets. Returns of the Broader Market Indices have not been reduced by fees and expenses associated with investing in securities and include the reinvestment of dividends. EXHIBIT 8OCH-ZIFF CAPITAL MANAGEMENT GROUP LLCFinancial Supplement (Unaudited)As of October 1, 2012OZ Master Fund by Investment StrategyLong/Short Equity Special Situations42%Structured Credit26%Convertible and Derivative Arbitrage13%Corporate Credit10%Private Investments6%Merger Arbitrage3%Cash0%Assets Under Management by Geography(1)North America61%Europe25%Asia14%Investors by TypePensions30%Fund-of-Funds16%Corporate, Institutional and Other14%Foundations and Endowments13%Private Banks11%Related Parties9%Family Offices and Individuals7%Investors by GeographyNorth America73%Europe16%Asia and Other11%(1)The North American exposure includes the United States, Canada, Central America and South America.
