NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Ares Management Corporation (NYSE:ARES) today reported its financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2023.
GAAP net income attributable to Ares Management Corporation was $61.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. On a basic and diluted basis, net income attributable to Ares Management Corporation per share of Class A and non-voting common stock was $0.30 for the quarter ended September 30, 2023.
After-tax realized income was $261.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. After-tax realized income per share of Class A and non-voting common stock was $0.83 for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. Fee related earnings were $274.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2023.
“Despite a more challenging market, we continued to deliver for our investors and shareholders in the third quarter with strong fund performance and continued growth in our key financial metrics,” said Michael Arougheti, Chief Executive Officer and President of Ares. “We had our second highest ever quarter of fundraising with gross new commitments totaling nearly $22 billion supported by our consistent performance through market cycles and our market leadership across our diversified global private credit strategies.”
“Our quarterly deployment has continued to improve sequentially this year as we gain share from traditional providers in a slower market environment,” said Jarrod Phillips, Chief Financial Officer of Ares. “Our available capital balance surpassed $100 billion for the first time in our firm’s history which provides us with significant visibility on further margin expansion and future earnings growth.”
Ares declared a quarterly dividend of $0.77 per share of its Class A and non-voting common stock, payable on December 29, 2023 to its Class A and non-voting common stockholders of record at the close of business on December 15, 2023.
