TORONTO, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ and TSX: CIGI) (“Colliers” or the “Company”) today announced operating and financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023. All amounts are in US dollars.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2023, revenues were $965.9 million, down 3% (1% in local currency), Adjusted EBITDA (note 1) was $104.6 million, down 14% (14% in local currency) and Adjusted EPS (note 2) was $0.86, down 40% versus the prior year period. First quarter adjusted EPS was not materially impacted by changes in foreign exchange rates. GAAP operating earnings were $22.1 million as compared to $40.8 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP diluted net loss per share was $0.47 versus $0.42 in the prior year quarter. First quarter GAAP diluted net loss per share was not materially impacted by changes in foreign exchange rates.

“During the seasonally slow first quarter, Investment Management and Outsourcing & Advisory delivered robust growth, Leasing was up slightly and, as expected, Capital Markets declined considerably in line with overall market conditions. Since our initial outlook 90 days ago, we have seen higher interest rates and challenging debt markets impact transaction volumes. Now with the additional stress on the banking system and increasing limitations on debt availability, there is more uncertainty around property valuations. Until interest rates stabilize and financing of real estate transactions becomes more predictable, we expect transaction activity to remain muted,” said Jay S. Hennick, Global Chairman & CEO of Colliers.

“Aside from our Capital Markets segment, the momentum from the rest of our business is strong. Revenues from Investment Management and Outsourcing & Advisory increased 40% and 13%, respectively, and together these segments represent more than 60% of our overall Adjusted EBITDA. Having a large proportion of our earnings coming from these revenue streams highlights the transformation of Colliers into a much more balanced, diversified and resilient company.”

“After quarter end, Colliers continued to build on its global platform by completing acquisitions in Australia and New Zealand in our Engineering & Design and Project Management segments. In addition, we announced the early redemption, effective June 1, 2023, of our outstanding 4% convertible notes. Eliminating the convertible notes will reduce interest costs and simplify our balance sheet.”

“Our shareholders know that Colliers has a history of seizing its greatest opportunities during challenging times. We believe that higher interest rates and tighter access to capital gives us a tremendous advantage in completing acquisitions, recruiting key talent and scaling in our newer growth engines that will translate into additional value for shareholders,” he concluded.

(1) Investment Management local currency revenues, excluding pass-through carried interest, were up 96% for the three months ended March 31, 2023

 

Consolidated revenues decreased 1% on a local currency basis in the seasonally slow first quarter. Investment Management and Outsourcing & Advisory generated robust growth, Leasing was up slightly while Capital Markets declined in line with overall market conditions. Consolidated internal revenues measured in local currencies declined 9% (note 3) versus the prior year quarter.

Segmented First Quarter Results
Revenues in the Americas region totalled $581.6 million for the first quarter, down 9% (8% in local currency) versus $641.7 million in the comparative prior year quarter. The decline was related to the significant fall-off in Capital Markets transaction volumes across all asset classes, relative to a very strong prior year quarter. Outsourcing & Advisory revenues were up high single digits, driven by growth in Engineering & Design and Property Management, while Leasing revenues were flat. Adjusted EBITDA was $53.9 million, down 34% (33% in local currency) relative to the strong prior year quarter. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was due to lower revenues and a change in service mix. GAAP operating earnings were $32.9 million, relative to $61.3 million in the prior year quarter.

Revenues in the EMEA region totalled $143.4 million, down 6% (2% in local currency) compared to $153.3 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue declined significantly in Capital Markets, in line with overall market conditions. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $11.3 million in the seasonally slow first quarter as compared to earnings of $4.9 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP operating loss was $25.0 million, versus $30.8 million in the prior year quarter.

Revenues in the Asia Pacific region totalled $120.1 million compared to $119.4 million in the prior year quarter, up 1% (7% in local currency), with growth in Leasing and Outsourcing & Advisory more than offsetting a decline in Capital Markets. Adjusted EBITDA was $8.0 million, down 21% (15% in local currency) relative to the strong prior year quarter on changes in service mix. GAAP operating earnings were $5.0 million, versus $8.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Investment Management revenues for the first quarter were $120.7 million compared to $86.4 million in the prior year quarter, up 40% (40% in local currency). Passthrough revenue (from historical carried interest) was nil versus $24.7 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of carried interest, revenue was up 96% (96% in local currency) driven by (i) acquisitions and (ii) management fee growth from increased assets under management. Adjusted EBITDA was $54.9 million, up 105% (105% in local currency) over the prior year quarter. GAAP operating earnings were $14.8 million in the quarter, versus $17.2 million in the prior year quarter with the reduction attributable to contingent acquisition consideration related to recent acquisitions. Assets under management were $97.6 billion as of March 31, 2023, as compared to $97.7 billion as of December 31, 2022, with modestly lower asset values mostly offset by net capital inflows.

Unallocated global corporate costs as reported in Adjusted EBITDA were $0.9 million in the first quarter, relative to $1.5 million in the prior year quarter. The corporate GAAP operating loss for the quarter was $5.5 million relative to $15.1 million in the first quarter of 2022.

Outlook for 2023
In early February, the Company provided its initial outlook for 2023. Since then, a significant banking crisis has occurred, availability of credit has tightened further and uncertainty around asset valuations has increased, causing a revision to the outlook. Lower transaction volumes are now expected to persist for the remainder of the year. Capital Markets revenues are expected to be down 30-40% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, with year-over-year comparisons becoming more favourable in the third and fourth quarters.

Robust growth (including the impact of recent acquisitions) is expected to continue in the Company’s high value recurring service lines, Investment Management and Outsourcing & Advisory, while Leasing is expected to remain flat to down slightly. The Company expects higher Adjusted EBITDA margins in 2023 due to the change in service mix (greater proportion of earnings coming from higher-margin Investment Management) offset in part by lower Capital Markets margins, net of cost control measures across the Company. Adjusted EPS growth is expected to continue to be impacted by increased interest costs as well as a larger proportion of earnings growth generated from non-wholly owned operations.

The outlook for 2023, including the impact of acquisitions completed in 2022 and to the present date in 2023, is as follows:

Notes
Non-GAAP Measures
1. Reconciliation of net earnings to Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings, adjusted to exclude: (i) income tax; (ii) other expense (income); (iii) interest expense; (iv) loss on disposal of operations; (v) depreciation and amortization, including amortization of mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”); (vi) gains attributable to MSRs; (vii) acquisition-related items (including contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments, contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense and transaction costs); (viii) restructuring costs and (ix) stock-based compensation expense. We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our own operating performance and our ability to service debt, as well as an integral part of our planning and reporting systems. Additionally, we use this measure in conjunction with discounted cash flow models to determine the Company’s overall enterprise valuation and to evaluate acquisition targets. We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure because we believe such measure is useful to investors as a reasonable indicator of operating performance because of the low capital intensity of the Company’s service operations. We believe this measure is a financial metric used by many investors to compare companies, especially in the services industry. This measure is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP in the United States, and should not be considered as a substitute for operating earnings, net earnings or cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may differ from other issuers and accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net earnings to Adjusted EBITDA appears below.

2. Reconciliation of net earnings and diluted net earnings per common share to adjusted net earnings and Adjusted EPS

Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted net earnings per share as calculated under the “if-converted” method, adjusted for the effect, after income tax, of: (i) the non-controlling interest redemption increment; (ii) loss on disposal of operations; (iii) amortization expense related to intangible assets recognized in connection with acquisitions and MSRs; (iv) gains attributable to MSRs; (v) acquisition-related items; (vi) restructuring costs and (vii) stock-based compensation expense. We believe this measure is useful to investors because it provides a supplemental way to understand the underlying operating performance of the Company and enhances the comparability of operating results from period to period. Adjusted EPS is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as a substitute for diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating this non-GAAP measure may differ from other issuers and, accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted net earnings and of diluted net earnings per share to Adjusted EPS appears below.

Adjusted EPS is calculated using the “if-converted” method of calculating earnings per share in relation to the Convertible Notes, which were issued on May 19, 2020. As such, the interest (net of tax) on the Convertible Notes is added to the numerator and the additional shares issuable on conversion of the Convertible Notes are added to the denominator of the earnings per share calculation to determine if an assumed conversion is more dilutive than no assumption of conversion. The “if-converted” method is used if the impact of the assumed conversion is dilutive. The “if-converted” method is dilutive for the Adjusted EPS calculation for all periods presented.

3. Reconciliation of net cash flow from operations to free cash flow

Free cash flow is defined as net cash flow from operating activities plus contingent acquisition consideration paid, less purchases of fixed assets, plus cash collections on AR Facility deferred purchase price less distributions to non-controlling interests. We use free cash flow as a measure to evaluate and monitor operating performance as well as our ability to service debt, fund acquisitions and pay of dividends to shareholders. We present free cash flow as a supplemental measure because we believe this measure is a financial metric used by many investors to compare valuation and liquidity measures across companies, especially in the services industry. This measure is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP in the United States, and should not be considered as a substitute for operating earnings, net earnings or cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating free cash flow may differ from other issuers and accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net cash flow from operating activities to free cash flow appears below.

4. Local currency revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth rate and internal revenue growth rate measures

Percentage revenue and Adjusted EBITDA variances presented on a local currency basis are calculated by translating the current period results of our non-US dollar denominated operations to US dollars using the foreign currency exchange rates from the periods against which the current period results are being compared. Percentage revenue variances presented on an internal growth basis are calculated assuming no impact from acquired entities in the current and prior periods. Revenue from acquired entities, including any foreign exchange impacts, are treated as acquisition growth until the respective anniversaries of the acquisitions. We believe that these revenue growth rate methodologies provide a framework for assessing the Company’s performance and operations excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and acquisitions. Since these revenue growth rate measures are not calculated under GAAP, they may not be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.

5. Assets under management

We use the term assets under management (“AUM”) as a measure of the scale of our Investment Management operations. AUM is defined as the gross market value of operating assets and the projected gross cost of development assets of the funds, partnerships and accounts to which we provide management and advisory services, including capital that such funds, partnerships and accounts have the right to call from investors pursuant to capital commitments. Our definition of AUM may differ from those used by other issuers and as such may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.

6. Adjusted EBITDA from recurring revenue percentage

Adjusted EBITDA from recurring revenue percentage is computed on a trailing twelve-month basis and represents the proportion of adjusted EBITDA (note 1) that is derived from Outsourcing & Advisory and Investment Management service lines. Both these service lines represent medium to long-term duration revenue streams that are either contractual or repeatable in nature. Adjusted EBITDA for this purpose is calculated in the same manner as for our debt agreement covenant calculation purposes, incorporating the expected full year impact of business acquisitions and dispositions.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings
(1)  Acquisition-related items include contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments, contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense and transaction costs.
(2)  Diluted EPS is calculated using the “if-converted” method of calculating earnings per share in relation to the Convertible Notes, which were issued on May 19, 2020. As such, the interest (net of tax) on the Convertible Notes is added to the numerator and the additional shares issuable on conversion of the Convertible Notes are added to the denominator of the earnings per share calculation to determine if an assumed conversion is more dilutive than no assumption of conversion. The “if-converted” method is used if the impact of the assumed conversion is dilutive. The “if-converted” method is anti-dilutive for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022.
(3)  See definition and reconciliation above.
