2016 annual results: strong growth in AUM

Tikehau Capital’s (Paris:TKO) supervisory board met on March 22nd 2016 and reviewed the full year consolidated financial statements2 as at 31 December, 2016.

In 2016, Tikehau Capital’s AUM increased by 57% (i.e. €3.6bn) to €10bn.

The growth in AUM primarily resulted from:

  • Net inflows of €2.2bn (including €1.8bn of funds raised and €0.4bn from capital increases)
  • The acquisition of the investment management company IREIT Global and the credit fund management business of Lyxor further increased AUM by €1.2bn.

Breakdown of the €10bn assets managed by Tikehau Capital as of 31 December, 2016:

  • Private Debt: €4.9bn, i.e. 49%
  • Real-Estate: €1.8bn, i.e. 18%
  • Private Equity: €1.4bn, i.e. 14%
  • Liquid Strategies: €1.9bn, i.e. 19%

On a consolidated basis (including Tikehau IM revenues since 21 December 2016 and valuation of Salvepar at the closing share price on 31 December 2016), net revenues totalled €76.3m vs €39.6m on 31 December 2015. The €36.7m increase primarily reflects a €22.5m fair-value adjustment for the private equity business (including Salvepar) and an increase of €11.8m in dividends, coupons and other payments received.

Consolidated income from the asset management and investments activities (operating income) was €57.4m vs €5.9m in 2015 including losses from hedging strategies (€62.2m) and proportional income from companies consolidated by the equity method (Tikehau IM and Tikehau Capital Europe) which are now fully consolidated (€67.4m).

Net financial income for the year was €-7.3m vs €-2.5m in 2015 due to an increase in the average level of debt during the year.

Consolidated group share was €72.4m (vs €9.6m in 2015) after the application of differed tax assets on tax reported losses totalling €22.4m. Pro forma net income came to €3.6m.

As at 31 December 2016, the net cash position of the group was €129.8m on a consolidated basis vs €15.6m in 2015. The net cash position was €495.1m on a pro forma basis.

Shareholders’ equity amounted to €1,132.4m vs €376.1m in 2015 (€1,530.5m on a pro forma basis).

A new organisation to accelerate growth

Over the past twelve months, Tikehau Capital has undergone several major changes aiming at accelerating growth and strengthening its financial structure, notably by unifying its business lines and assets into a single structure:

  • A €416m capital increase in June 2016 (in cash and through the early conversion of convertible bonds issued in 2015).
  • Unifying its business lines and assets enabling Tikehau Capital to become the holding company of an asset management and investment group.
  • A €200m capital increase in cash at the beginning of 2017.
  • An exchange and cash tender offer in February 2017 for its subsidiary Salvepar, to acquire the equities and convertible bonds (ORNANE).

On 7 March 2017, Tikehau Capital successfully completed its admission to the regulated market of Euronext Paris, listing 70,888,284 shares at a fixed IPO price of €21 per share.

Tikehau Capital’s stock closed at €25.25 on 21 March 2017, i.e. + 20% since the IPO, increasing market cap to almost €1.8 bn.

A stable shareholding structure to support the group in its development

In July 2016, Tikehau Capital announced that FFP (the listed holding company of the Peugeot family) and the Singaporean investment group Temasek participated in a €416m capital increase designed to accelerate the group’s international expansion. FFP and Temasek each currently hold 3% of the capital.

In March 2017, the Fonds stratégique de participations (FSP), a consortium of seven major French insurance groups, took a 5.5% capital stake.

These new shareholders have entered the capital alongside the group’s long-standing institutional partners.

Dividend

The company does not plan to propose paying a dividend for 2016.

Governance

The Supervisory Board reviewed its composition and format at the meeting held on 22 March 2017. The Supervisory Board is composed of eleven members, including seven independent board members. Christian de Labriffe (former CEO of Salvepar) was appointed Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

The Supervisory Board also nominated its committees. The following members were appointed to the Audit & Risks Committee: Jean-Louis Charon (Chairman), Constance de Poncins and Roger Caniard. The following members were appointed to the Appointments & Remunerations Committee: Fanny Picard (Chairman), Jean Charest and Léon Seynave.

Outlook

Tikehau Capital intends to pursue its development in its four business lines, in Europe and globally.

Given its strategy and development projects, the group targets a total of assets under management of over €20bn by 2020. Tikehau Capital plans to use its shareholders’ equity to accelerate the development of its asset management business which will become the main driver in terms of revenues in the medium term.
