LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ares Management Corporation (NYSE:ARES) today reported its financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2019.
"Our second quarter results highlight the strength and stability of our core financial metrics with AUM, management fees and fee related earnings growing between 17% and 24% on a year over year basis,” said Michael Arougheti, Chief Executive Officer of Ares. “The strong growth in these metrics reflects our continuing fundraising success, steady deployment across the globe, quality fund performance and our expansion into new products."
"Driven by strong fundraising, our assets under management raised, but not yet earning fees until deployment, increased more than 20% year over year, putting us in a strong position to continue our future growth,” said Michael McFerran, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Ares. “Looking forward, we are excited about our opportunities for further market share gains and the realization of operational efficiencies which we expect will enable us to improve our margins in the future."
Ares declared a quarterly dividend of $0.32 per share of its Class A common stock, payable on September 30, 2019 to its Class A common stockholders of record at the close of business on September 16, 2019.
Ares declared a quarterly dividend of $0.4375 per share of its Series A preferred stock with a payment date of September 30, 2019 to its Series A preferred stockholders of record as of the close of business on September 15, 2019. As September 15, 2019 falls on a Sunday, the effective record date for the dividend will be Friday, September 13, 2019.
