LOS ANGELES—August 9, 2016—Ares Management, L.P. (NYSE:ARES) today reported its financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016.
“Ares generated significantly stronger second quarter results compared to the same period last year as our funds delivered good performance across our strategies despite increased levels of market volatility,” said Tony Ressler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ares. “Our franchise continues to expand as global investors seek higher, less correlated returns from alternative investments.”
“All three of our investment groups generated strong realizations during the second quarter,” said Michael Arougheti, President of Ares. “We also continue to build up a record level of available capital, which leaves us well positioned to grow our future management fees and fee related earnings over time as we invest and create long term value for our investors.”
Ares declared a quarterly distribution of $0.28 per common unit, payable to common unitholders of record at the close of business on August 23, 2016, payable on September 6, 2016.
Series A Preferred Distribution
In June 2016, Ares issued 12,400,000 units of 7.00% Series A Preferred Units at $25.00 per unit, including 1,240,000 units issued pursuant to the over-allotment option. Distributions on these preferred units are payable on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31, beginning on September 30, 2016. Ares declared a distribution of $0.544444 per Series A Preferred Unit and set aside for payment on September 30, 2016 to holders of record as of the close of business on September 15, 2016. The first distribution on the Series A Preferred is calculated based on the date of the original issuance.
