Onex says its segment net earnings, which excludes certain items, totalled $607 million or $6.59 per diluted share, up from $515 million or $5.39 per diluted share a year ago.
The Toronto-based company's investing segment earnings totalled $493 million compared with $492 million 12 months before, while its asset management segment jumped to $195 million from $93 million in the same quarter last year.
Onex chairman and CEO Gerry Schwartz says Onex enjoyed a "very active quarter" with good momentum across all businesses.
He says investing capital per share grew by eight per cent and that fund performance at the company's private equity platform was strong.
