The Carlyle Group Announces Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group L.P. (NASDAQ:CG) today reported its unaudited results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Carlyle Co-CEO David M. Rubenstein said, “Carlyle's diverse platform produced strong cash flows during the third quarter despite global market declines. Our fund investors continued to entrust us with significant new capital as long term performance remains strong and our investment capabilities continue to expand. Third quarter Economic Net Income was largely driven by portfolio valuations on the final day of September, and since then global markets and valuations have moved higher. Our core business trends remain unaffected by these short term movements.”

Carlyle Co-CEO William E. Conway, Jr. said, “The fundamentals of our business are healthy and our portfolio is in good shape. We recently announced a number of attractive new investments and exits which should close in the coming few quarters, positioning us to deploy capital at a level in line with our historic pace and generating attractive levels of Distributable Earnings for our unitholders.”

U.S. GAAP results for Q3 2015 included loss before provision for income taxes of $(529) million, and net loss attributable to the common unitholders through The Carlyle Group L.P. of $(84) million, or net loss per common unit of $(1.11), on a diluted basis. Total balance sheet assets were $33 billion as of September 30, 2015.
