Net Income Up 137% and EPS Up 135% to $1.28

Adjusted Net Income Up 93% and Adjusted EPS Up 92% to $1.39

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 28, 2021-- CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“The benefits of our diversification strategy were clearly evident in the third quarter with both earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share 70% or more above the third-quarter 2019 peak,” said Bob Sulentic, president and chief executive officer of CBRE. “Our leaders around the world have been adept at identifying and securing compelling opportunities to grow our business across the four dimensions of diversification – asset types, business lines, client types and geographies. While returning capital to our shareholders, we have committed approximately $2 billion of capital already this year to secularly favored areas, including green energy and infrastructure project management, logistics and multifamily assets and flex office solutions. These investments, and the opportunities they open up for us to make further capital and organic investments in these areas, will position us to drive earnings growth for years to come.”

The Advisory Services segment rebounded strongly from pandemic-suppressed levels of third-quarter 2020. Third-quarter 2021 revenue growth was very strong, with all business lines exceeding third-quarter 2019 levels. In addition to strong revenue growth, cost-saving actions taken in 2020 contributed to a more than 80% increase in segment operating profit.

Capital markets activity led the segment’s recovery. Global property sales revenue rose 93% (91% local currency) from the weak levels of last year’s third quarter and exceeded the third-quarter 2019 peak level by 27%. Compared with last year’s third quarter, the United States posted a robust increase, with revenue up 116%, and CBRE’s market share improved 20 basis points from last year’s third quarter to a market-leading 16.8%, according to Real Capital Analytics. International markets also saw strong increases versus last year’s third quarter, paced by Australia and the United Kingdom.

Commercial mortgage origination revenue jumped 41% (same local currency) from third-quarter 2020. Lending activity rose across all capital sources in step with increased investment market activity, with private lenders leading the upturn. During the quarter, industrial and multifamily assets remained in keen demand, while interest in hospitality, retail and well-leased office assets also increased. Government-Sponsored Enterprise lending picked up from earlier in the year, with an emphasis on affordable housing.

Leasing activity continued to revive. Compared with last year’s third quarter, global leasing revenue increased 58% (57% local currency) and exceeded the third-quarter 2019 peak level by 7%. International markets continued to set the pace for leasing recovery with both EMEA and APAC increasing by double-digit percentages compared with the third-quarter 2019 peak level. United States revenue surged 67% compared with third-quarter 2020 and increased 5% from the third-quarter 2019 peak. Industrial properties once again saw very strong growth. Activity at United States office buildings improved notably compared with both second-quarter 2021 and third-quarter 2020 but remained below pre-pandemic levels.

Loan servicing revenue increased 35% (same local currency) from third-quarter 2020 and the loan servicing portfolio increased 19% to approximately $300 billion at quarter’s end. Valuation revenue continued to bounce back strongly around the globe, rising 27% (25% local currency) from third-quarter 2020. Property management revenue rose 6% (5% local currency) compared with third-quarter 2020.

The GWS segment again posted solid revenue growth and 16% operating profit growth across its global business base.

Facilities management, which is largely contractual, saw an increase of 6% (4% local currency) in revenue compared with third-quarter 2020. This increase was propelled by significant strength with local clients.

Project management revenue rose 21% (19% local currency) from third-quarter 2020, reflecting a continued recovery of construction activity following last year’s lockdowns.

The new business pipeline increased markedly from the second quarter and was up relative to third-quarter 2020 and 2019 levels, with representation from financial services, industrial, life sciences and technology companies.

Continued strong growth in both development services and investment management drove a sharp increase in segment operating profit in the third quarter.

Global real estate development operating profit (11) nearly doubled from third-quarter 2020 to approximately $100 million, fueled by a strong pace of industrial asset sales at high valuations.

The in-process development portfolio ended the quarter at $16.8 billion, a record level for the company and up $1.6 billion from second-quarter 2021. Build-to-suits and fee development comprised approximately half of the in-process portfolio. The pipeline remained relatively stable at $9.6 billion, largely comprised of industrial and multifamily assets.

Investment management revenue rose 35% (32% local currency) from third-quarter 2020 to $135 million, driven by a record level of asset management fees and higher incentive, acquisition and disposition fees. Operating profit(11) surged 68% (64% local currency) from third-quarter 2020 to $49 million, reflecting strong revenue gains and prudent cost management.

Assets under management ended the quarter at $133.1 billion, a record high for the company and an increase of $4.0 billion ($5.8 billion local currency) from second-quarter 2021. The increase reflected higher asset valuations and strong net capital inflows, partly offset by unfavorable foreign currency movement.

Corporate and Other Segment

Corporate segment expense, which primarily reflects overhead costs, increased to $118.8 million from $77.1 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase was primarily due to an increase in stock compensation expense tied to significant growth in performance this quarter as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020, when the operating results were impacted by the pandemic.

Capital Allocation Overview

  • Free Cash Flow – During the third quarter of 2021, free cash flow increased 14.5% to $927.5 million. This reflected cash from operating activities of $973.0 million, less total capital expenditures of $45.5 million. Net capital expenditures totaled $39.7 million. (12)
  • Stock Repurchase Program – The company spent $100.0 million to repurchase more than 1.0 million shares at an average price of $97.55 per share during the third quarter of 2021, and $188.3 million to repurchase 2.2 million shares at an average price of $87.29 per share during the first nine months of 2021. There was $161.7 million of capacity remaining under the company’s authorized stock repurchase program as of September 30, 2021.
  • Acquisitions and Investments – As announced in July 2021, the company signed an agreement to acquire a 60% ownership interest in Turner & Townsend Holdings Limited, a global leader in program management, project management and cost consulting, for approximately $1.3 billion. Of this amount, an initial payment of approximately $0.7 billion will be made in early November, when the transaction is expected to close. In addition, the company made in-fill acquisitions totaling $21.0 million in cash and deferred consideration during the third quarter.

Leverage and Financing Overview

  • Leverage – The company’s net leverage ratio (net cash (13) to trailing twelve-month adjusted EBITDA) was (0.31x) as of September 30, 2021, which is substantially below the company's primary debt covenant of 4.25x. The net leverage ratio is computed as follows (dollars in millions):

The terms “net revenue,” “adjusted revenue,” “adjusted net income,” “adjusted earnings per share” (or adjusted EPS), “adjusted EBITDA,” “business line operating profit,” “segment operating profit on revenue margin,” “segment operating profit on net revenue margin” and “free cash flow,” all of which CBRE uses in this press release, are non-GAAP financial measures under SEC guidelines, and you should refer to the footnotes below as well as the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section in this press release for a further explanation of these measures. We have also included in that section reconciliations of these measures in specific periods to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP for those periods.

Totals may not sum in tables in millions included in this release due to rounding.

(1)

Local currency percentage change is calculated by comparing current-period results at prior-period exchange rates versus prior-period results.

(2)

Net revenue is gross revenue less costs largely associated with subcontracted vendor work performed for clients. These costs are reimbursable by clients and generally have no margin.

(3)

Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before net interest expense, write-off of financing costs on extinguished debt, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, asset impairments, adjustments related to certain carried interest incentive compensation expense (reversal) to align with the timing of associated revenue, fair value adjustments to real estate assets acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period, costs incurred related to legal entity restructuring, costs associated with workforce optimization, transformation initiatives, and integration and other costs related to acquisitions.

(4)

Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share (or adjusted EPS) exclude the effect of select items from GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share as well as adjust the provision for income taxes for such charges. Adjustments during the periods presented included non-cash depreciation and amortization expense related to certain assets attributable to acquisitions, certain carried interest incentive compensation expense (reversal) to align with the timing of associated revenue, the impact of fair value adjustments to real estate assets acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period, costs incurred related to legal entity restructuring, integration and other costs related to acquisitions, costs associated with workforce optimization, transformation initiatives and asset impairments.

(5)

Free cash flow is calculated as cash flow from operations, less capital expenditures (reflected in the investing section of the consolidated statement of cash flows).

(6)

Segment operating profit is the measure reported to the chief operating decision maker (CODM) for purposes of making decisions about allocating resources to each segment and assessing performance of each segment. Segment operating profit represents earnings before net interest expense, write-off of financing costs on extinguished debt, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and asset impairments, as well as adjustments related to the following: certain carried interest incentive compensation expense (reversal) to align with the timing of associated revenue, fair value adjustments to real estate acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period, costs incurred related to legal entity restructuring, costs associated with workforce optimization, transformation initiatives and integration and other costs related to acquisitions. Prior period results have been recast to conform to this definition.

(7)

Segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins represent segment operating profit divided by revenue and net revenue, respectively.

(8)

Third-quarter 2021 GWS net revenue growth was negatively impacted by approximately 3% due to a reclassification of pass-through revenue in project management. There was no impact to GWS revenue in the period.

(9)

Adjusted revenue for the Real Estate Investments segment reflects revenue for this segment, less the direct cost of revenue, along with equity income from unconsolidated subsidiaries and gain on disposition of real estate, net of non-controlling interests. Adjusted revenue also removes the impact of fair value adjustments to real estate assets acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period.

(10)

Segment operating profit in the Real Estate Investments segment includes equity income from unconsolidated subsidiaries and gain on disposition of real estate, net of non-controlling interests, and the associated compensation expense.

(11)

Represents line of business profitability/losses, as adjusted.

(12)

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the company incurred capital expenditures of $45.5 million (reflected in the investing section of the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows) and received tenant concessions from landlords of $5.8 million (reflected in the operating section of the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows).

(13)

Net debt (cash) is calculated as cash available for company use less total debt (excluding non-recourse debt).

(14)

Cash represents cash and cash equivalents (excluding restricted cash) and excludes $92.2 million of cash in consolidated funds and other entities not available for company use at September 30, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following measures are considered “non-GAAP financial measures” under SEC guidelines:

(i)

Net revenue

(ii)

Adjusted revenue for the Real Estate Investments segment

(iii)

Net income attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. stockholders, as adjusted (which we also refer to as “adjusted net income”)

(iv)

Diluted income per share attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. shareholders, as adjusted (which we also refer to as “adjusted earnings per diluted share” or “adjusted EPS”)

(v)

Adjusted EBITDA

(vi)

Business line operating profit/loss

(vii)

Segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins

(viii)

Free cash flow

(ix)

Net cash

These measures are not recognized measurements under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). When analyzing our operating performance, investors should use these measures in addition to, and not as an alternative for, their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Our management generally uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate operating performance and for other discretionary purposes. The company believes these measures provide a more complete understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of current results to prior periods and may be useful for investors to analyze our financial performance because they eliminate the impact of selected charges that may obscure trends in the underlying performance of our business. The company further uses certain of these measures, and believes that they are useful to investors, for purposes described below.

With respect to net revenue: net revenue is gross revenue less costs largely associated with subcontracted vendor work performed for clients. We believe that investors may find this measure useful to analyze the company’s overall financial performance because it excludes costs reimbursable by clients that generally have no margin, and as such provides greater visibility into the underlying performance of our business. Prior to 2021, the company utilized fee revenue to analyze the overall financial performance. This metric excluded additional reimbursed costs, primarily related to employees dedicated to clients, some of which included minimal margin.

With respect to adjusted revenue: the company believes that investors may find this measure useful to analyze the financial performance of our Real Estate Investments segment because it is more reflective of this segment’s total operations.

With respect to adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted EBITDA, business line operating profit, and segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins: the company believes that investors may find these measures useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry because their calculations generally eliminate the accounting effects of acquisitions, which would include impairment charges of goodwill and intangibles created from acquisitions—and in the case of adjusted EBITDA, business line operating profit and segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins—the effects of financings and income tax and the accounting effects of capital spending. All of these measures and adjusted revenue may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. In the case of adjusted EBITDA, this measure is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our management’s discretionary use because it does not consider cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments. The adjusted EBITDA measure calculated herein may also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled definitions in our credit facilities and debt instruments, which amounts are further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges and are used by us to determine compliance with financial covenants therein and our ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt. The company also uses adjusted EBITDA, segment operating profit and adjusted EPS as significant components when measuring our operating performance under our employee incentive compensation programs.

With respect to free cash flow, the company believes that investors may find this measure useful to analyze the cash flow generated from operations after accounting for cash outflows to support operations and capital expenditures. With respect to net cash, the company believes that investors use this measure when calculating the company’s net leverage ratio.

Net income attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. stockholders, as adjusted (or adjusted net income), and diluted income per share attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. stockholders, as adjusted (or adjusted EPS), are calculated as follows (in thousands, except share and per share data):
