continued growth in Property & Facility Management.  Leasing revenue grew 9 percent in local currency for the year, with the largest growth in the Americas.  Property & Facility Management fee revenue rose 13 percent in local currency, also led by the Americas region, which increased 15 percent in local currency, followed by Asia Pacific, up 13 percent.  LaSalle Investment Management's advisory fees decreased from 2011 due to significant asset and portfolio sales, but have remained consistent throughout each quarter of 2012.  LaSalle generated $23 million of incentive fees and $24 million of equity earnings during the year.    Consolidated quarter-to-date revenue rose to $1.2 billion, 9 percent higher in local currency than the fourth quarter of 2011, and was up 8 percent on a fee revenue basis.   Operating expenses, excluding restructuring and acquisition charges, were $3.6 billion for the year, an increase of 10 percent, 12 percent in local currency, compared with $3.3 billion in 2011.  The increase was driven by higher variable compensation resulting from improved Leasing revenue, as well as higher compensation resulting from increased headcount primarily to service new and expanded Property & Facility Management contracts.  Compensation expense was further impacted by the firm's previously disclosed decision to eliminate its Stock Ownership Program ("SOP"), which resulted in approximately $11 million of accelerated compensation expense in the current year, a timing difference rather than a permanent increase in compensation, as well as a timing difference of $5 million related to the acceleration of the final deferred payment for the Staubach acquisition and extension of employment agreements with the majority of the Staubach shareholders who are working in the firm.  Fee-based operating expenses1, excluding restructuring and acquisition charges, were $3.3 billion, an increase of 9 percent in local currency, also mostly attributable to higher compensation expense.Full-year results included $45 million of restructuring and acquisition charges, principally related to integration and retention costs for the second-quarter 2011 acquisition of King Sturge, but also including severance and lease exit costs in targeted areas of the business that are anticipated to remain economically challenged for an extended period of time.  The firm's results also included $5 million of intangibles amortization related to the King Sturge acquisition.  Fourth-quarter fee-based operating expenses excluding restructuring and acquisition charges were $1.0 billion, up 8 percent from $928 million last year.  The majority of the increase was due to increases in variable compensation, notably bonus and commission expense, as several of the firm's businesses reached higher bonus and commission hurdles in the fourth quarter, particularly in the United States.Balance SheetDuring the fourth quarter, the firm issued $275 million of 4.4% Senior Notes due November 2022.  The investment-grade notes were sold to a diverse group of investors and further strengthen the firm's liquidity and balance sheet position.  The proceeds from the issuance were used to reduce borrowings on the firm's long-term revolving credit facility.  Outstanding debt on this facility was $169 million as of December 31, 2012, compared with $463 million last year.    Also in the quarter, the firm made a payment of $115 million to certain former Staubach shareholders.  This represents an acceleration of the majority of a $156 million deferred acquisition payment previously recorded and scheduled to be paid in August 2013.  In addition, the Americas' Leasing performance since the 2008 merger produced an earn-out of $36 million, of which $5 million was paid in the second quarter of 2012.  The remaining $31 million has been recorded as a deferred acquisition obligation as of December 31, 2012, and will be paid in the first half of 2013.  Total net debt, which includes deferred acquisition obligations, decreased $105 million during 2012 to $538 million as of December 31, 2012.Business Segment Performance HighlightsAmericas Real Estate Services Full-year revenue in the Americas region was $1.7 billion, an increase of 15 percent from 2011.  On a fee revenue basis, revenue increased 11 percent.  The largest growth was in Capital Markets & Hotels, which increased 25 percent, and Property & Facility Management, which increased 15 percent.  Leasing revenue increased 9 percent despite overall office leasing volumes dropping 20 percent in the United States. Americas Revenue   ($ in millions, "LC" = local currency)Three Months Ended December 31, % Change in LCTwelve Months Ended  December 31,% Change in LC2012201120122011Leasing$

operating expenses increased 12 percent from last year.  The year-over-year increase was due to higher fixed compensation costs associated with a larger employee base, as well as higher commission expenses related to improved Leasing and Capital Markets & Hotels revenue.  The SOP elimination earlier this year has added approximately $5 million to compensation expense compared with 2011.  Also impacting Americas full-year and fourth-quarter operating expenses was $5 million of compensation expense related to acceleration of the deferred acquisition payment.Operating income was $168 million

13.4 percent last year.  Adjusting for the impact of the SOP elimination and acceleration of deferred acquisition payments, 2012 EBITDA margin would have been equal to a similarly adjusted 2011.Fourth-quarter fee-based operating expenses were $457 million, compared with $408 million in 2011, a 12 percent increase, and included the $5 million of compensation expense related to the accelerated deferred acquisition payment and $2 million from the elimination of the SOP.EMEA Real Estate ServicesEMEA's full-year revenue was $1.0 billion, a 12 percent increase in local currency.

notes. JONES LANG LASALLE INCORPORATEDFinancial Statement Notes1. Consistent with U.S. GAAP ("GAAP"), gross contract vendor and subcontractor costs ("gross contract costs") which are managed on certain client assignments in the Property & Facility Management and Project & Development Services business lines are presented on a gross basis in both revenue and operating expenses.  Gross contract costs are excluded from revenue and operating expenses in determining "fee revenue" and "fee-based operating expenses", respectively.  Excluding these costs from revenue and operating expenses more accurately reflects how the firm manages its expense base and its operating margins.  Adjusted operating income excludes the impact of restructuring and acquisition charges and intangible amortization related to the King Sturge acquisition.  "Adjusted operating income margin" is calculated by dividing adjusted operating income by fee revenue.  Below are reconciliations of revenue and operating expenses to fee revenue and fee-based operating expenses, as well as adjusted operating income margin calculations, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, and 2011. Three Months EndedTwelve Months EndedDecember 31,December 31,($ in millions)2012201120122011Revenue$  1,248.7$  1,148.2$ 3,932.8$  3,584.5Gross contract costs(83.3)(66.9)(292.6)(210.5)Fee

income for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, and December 31, 2011, are restructuring and acquisition charges and intangible amortization related to the recent King Sturge acquisition.

Although adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, they are used extensively by management and are useful to investors and lenders as metrics for evaluating operating performance and liquidity. EBITDA is used in the calculations of certain covenants related to the firm's revolving credit facility. However, adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with GAAP. Because adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are not calculated under GAAP, the firm's adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.Below is a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA (in thousands): Three Months EndedTwelve Months EndedDecember 31,December 31,2012201120122011Net income attributable to common shareholders$106,831$84,765$207,556$163,997Add:Interest expense, net of interest income10,3378,37235,17335,591Provision for income taxes34,65729,52569,24456,387Depreciation and amortization20,10022,33378,81082,832EBITDA$171,925$144,995$390,783$338,807Add:Restructuring and acquisition charges13,04533,98345,42156,127Adjusted EBITDA$184,970$178,978$436,204$394,9344. Restructuring and acquisition charges are excluded from segment operating results, although they are included for consolidated reporting.  For purposes of segment operating results, the allocation of restructuring charges to the segments has been determined not to be meaningful to investors, so the performance of segment results has been evaluated without allocation of these charges.5. Intangible amortization from the second-quarter 2011 King Sturge acquisition is included in depreciation and amortization in the firm's consolidated results, as well as in EMEA's segment results, but has been excluded from adjusted operating income and adjusted net income.6. Each geographic region offers the firm's full range of Real Estate Services businesses consisting primarily of tenant representation and agency leasing; capital markets; property management and facilities management; project and development services; and advisory, consulting and valuations services.  The Investment Management segment provides investment management services to institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals.7. The consolidated statements of cash flows are presented in summarized form.
