WASHINGTON, July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group L.P. (Nasdaq:CG) today reported its unaudited results for the second quarter of 2014, which ended on June 30, 2014.
Carlyle Co-CEO David M. Rubenstein said, "Carlyle raised a significant amount of capital in the second quarter. Our track record, combined with increased demand for alternative investment strategies from large limited partners, led to substantial new fund commitments. Fundraising in our Real Assets segment was particularly strong this quarter."
Carlyle Co-CEO William E. Conway, Jr. said, "While Carlyle funds continue to produce strong returns for our fund investors, the big story is the strong performance of our European private equity businesses. Carlyle Europe Partners III has appreciated 47% over the past year and has begun generating substantial realized performance fees, further diversifying the composition of Carlyle's earnings. Our European technology funds are also performing exceptionally well."
In addition to this release, Carlyle issued a detailed earnings presentation of its second quarter 2014 results, which can be viewed at http://ir.carlyle.com.
The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution of $0.16 per common unit to holders of record at the close of business on August 11, 2014, payable on August 22, 2014.
