CBRE Group, Inc. Reports Financial Results for Second-Quarter 2021

EPS Rises to $1.30 (GAAP) and $1.36 (Adjusted)

DALLAS--()--CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBRE) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

As our results for the second quarter demonstrate, CBRE continues to benefit from the multi-year efforts to diversify our business. The commercial real estate market has offered up significant opportunity to diversify across asset type, business lines, client type and geography. We have moved decisively to capitalize on this opportunity and are making investments and driving organic growth initiatives that will continue this trend,” said Bob Sulentic, president and chief executive officer of CBRE. “Our agreement to acquire a majority interest in Turner & Townsend is an excellent example. Turner & Townsend has a great brand and management team, operating in sectors with favorable long-term growth profiles that will advance diversification across the four dimensions of our business.”

Our growth in the second quarter was strong, even compared with prior peak-year performance in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA grew at a better than 20% compound rate from second-quarter 2019 with strong growth across all three business segments. Each segment experienced significant margin expansion over this period,” he continued.

The Advisory Services segment rebounded strongly compared with second-quarter 2020, when the Covid pandemic suppressed business activity around the world. Second-quarter 2021 performance was very strong globally, with significantly higher revenue across all lines of business. This revenue growth, coupled with cost actions taken in 2020 and approximately $7 million of incremental Covid-related expenses in the prior-year period, led to a more than doubling of segment operating profit.

Capital markets activity led the segment’s recovery. Global property sales revenue surged 152% (142% local currency), from especially weak levels of last year’s second quarter. Impressively, global sales revenue was 27% above the second-quarter 2019 level. Internationally, the United Kingdom, Japan and Australia posted the sharpest gains compared with last year’s second quarter, while the United States posted a 163% increase over this period. In a rebounding United States investment sales market, CBRE market share improved 210 basis points from last year’s second quarter, according to Real Capital Analytics data.

Commercial mortgage origination revenue also improved significantly, rising 61% (60% local currency) from second-quarter 2020. Lending activity picked up dramatically across all commercial capital sources in step with the revival of investment market activity, particularly for industrial and multifamily assets. The Government-Sponsored Enterprises remained a steady source of debt capital for multifamily properties, particularly affordable housing.

Leasing revenue rose 33% (29% local currency) compared with last year’s second quarter but remained about 18% below the 2019 level. While overall leasing activity rebounded in the United States, with revenue up 24% compared with second-quarter 2020, it remained 30% lower than second-quarter 2019. International markets were generally stronger with Australia, Continental Europe and the United Kingdom each posting growth rates in excess of 50% versus second-quarter 2020. Industrial properties once again set the pace for growth, while office leasing continued to improve. Notably, overall leasing revenue in EMEA and APAC rose by double digits compared with second-quarter 2019.

Revenue growth from other Advisory Services business lines was also strong. Loan servicing revenue increased 16% (same local currency) for the quarter. The loan servicing portfolio totaled approximately $294 billion at quarter’s end, up 20% over the past year. Valuation revenue rose 38% (29% local currency), reflecting the recovery of property markets. Property management net revenue continued to grow steadily, rising over 6% (1% in local currency).

The GWS segment posted solid revenue and segment operating profit growth across its global business base.

Facilities management, which is largely contractual, saw net revenue rise 10% (6% local currency), with strong growth within data centers and local facilities management. Project management benefited from a continued rebound in construction activity, which helped to fuel 15% (11% local currency) net revenue growth.

The new business pipeline continues to have strong representation across client and property types that are benefiting from secular shifts accelerated by Covid, such as life sciences, technology and logistics companies, as well as growing demand for data center management.

Strong revenue growth, combined with ongoing prudent cost management, led to a robust increase in segment operating profit. The segment’s overall margin on net revenue expanded over 180 basis points. The prior-year second quarter also included approximately $17 million for Covid-related expenditures.

On July 27, 2021, CBRE announced an agreement to acquire a 60% ownership interest in Turner & Townsend Holdings Limited, a global leader in program management, project management and cost consulting, for approximately $1.3 billion. The acquisition is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. Upon completion of the transaction, Turner & Townsend’s financial results will be consolidated and reported in CBRE’s GWS segment.

Strong performance in both development services and investment management spurred elevated REI segment operating profit growth.

U.S. real estate development operating profit (10) surged to nearly $122 million, from $11 million in the prior year, a quarterly record for the company. The robust performance was fueled by large office assets that commanded strong valuations due to the high quality of the assets and the tenancy. The U.K. multifamily development business (Telford Homes) showed continued recovery from the negative effects of Covid-19. Its net operating loss (10) for the quarter narrowed to approximately $2 million versus $11 million in the prior-year second quarter.

The in-process development portfolio ended the quarter at $15.2 billion, up $0.2 billion from first-quarter 2021 – a record level for the company. The pipeline increased by $2.8 billion from first-quarter 2021 to $9.6 billion, largely driven by fee-based office and industrial work for blue-chip occupier clients.

Investment management revenue surged 35% (26% local currency) to $139 million, driven by significantly higher asset management and incentive/development fees, as well as carried interest. Operating profit (13) rose 38% (27% local currency) to $45 million, reflecting revenue gains, prudent cost management, and the higher carried interest.

Assets under management ended the quarter at $129.1 billion, a record high for the company and an increase of $4.6 billion ($4.1 billion local currency) from first-quarter 2021. The increase reflected higher asset valuations, net capital inflows and favorable foreign currency movement.

Hana, the company’s startup flexible workspace business, completed its integration with Industrious National Management Company LLC (Industrious), during the second quarter. CBRE retains financial responsibility for four legacy Hana units, which will be reported in the Real Estate Investments segment. The financial impact of the company’s Industrious investment will be reported within the Advisory Services segment.

Corporate and Other Segment

Corporate segment expense, which primarily reflects overhead costs, declined to $69.5 million from $87.0 million in the prior-year quarter. Costs in the prior-year quarter were elevated due to approximately $17 million of incremental Covid-related expenses and a charitable contribution in support of Covid relief efforts as well as severance costs associated with the company’s workforce optimization. The 2021 second quarter benefited from approximately $10 million of venture investment gains and the effect of cost-structure improvement activities undertaken in 2020. These benefits were partially offset by higher incentive compensation expense, which had been significantly reduced in the prior-year quarter due to Covid’s impact on business activity.

Adjustments to GAAP Net Income and Earnings Per Share

Adjustments to GAAP net income totaled $20.2 million on a net basis. This included approximately $27.0 million of favorable pre-tax adjustments, including $17.2 million of non-cash acquisition-related depreciation and amortization; $8.1 million of integration and other costs related to acquisitions; $1.7 million of investment management carried interest incentive compensation expense to align with the timing of associated carried interest revenue, along with an unfavorable pre-tax adjustment of $(0.4) million related to fair value adjustments on real estate assets acquired in the Telford Homes acquisition; and a $6.5 million net tax adjustment associated with the aforementioned pre-tax adjustments.

GAAP net income increased 441% (414% local currency) to $443 million and earnings per share increased 437% (411% local currency) to $1.30, compared with the prior-year period. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share increased 293% (274% local currency) and 290.6% (271.3% local currency) to $462.9 million and $1.36, respectively, compared with the prior-year period. The 2020 second quarter included the previously mentioned $38 million of costs associated with workforce optimization efforts and more than $40 million of incremental costs and donations related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Capital Allocation Overview

  • Free Cash Flow – During the second quarter of 2021, free cash flow increased 362% to approximately $375 million. This reflected cash from operating activities of $421 million, less total capital expenditures of $46.3 million. Net capital expenditures (of which a considerable portion during the period was discretionary) totaled $35.1 million. (11)
  • Stock Repurchase Program – The company repurchased $24.1 million of its stock during the second quarter of 2021. There was $261.7 million of capacity remaining under the company’s authorized stock repurchase program as of June 30, 2021.
  • Acquisitions and Investments – During the second quarter of 2021, as previously mentioned, the company purchased an incremental interest in Industrious, bringing its current ownership stake to 40%. In addition, the company acquired a technical facilities services firm based in Denmark; an infrastructure and development services firm based in Australia, and a gaming sector advisory firm based in Las Vegas.

Leverage and Financing Overview

  • Leverage – The company’s net leverage ratio (net cash (12) to trailing twelve-month adjusted EBITDA) was (0.07x) as of June 30, 2021, which is substantially below the company's primary debt covenant of 4.25x. The net leverage ratio is computed as follows (dollars in millions):

We have also included in that section reconciliations of these measures in specific periods to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP for those periods.

Totals may not sum in tables in millions included in this release due to rounding.

(1)

Local currency percentage change is calculated by comparing current-period results at prior-period exchange rates versus prior-period results.

(2)

Net revenue is gross revenue less costs largely associated with subcontracted vendor work performed for clients. These costs are reimbursable by clients and generally have no margin.

(3)

Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before net interest expense, write-off of financing costs on extinguished debt, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, asset impairments, adjustments related to certain carried interest incentive compensation expense (reversal) to align with the timing of associated revenue, fair value adjustments to real estate assets acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period, costs incurred related to legal entity restructuring, costs associated with workforce optimization efforts and integration and other costs related to acquisitions.

(4)

Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share (or adjusted EPS) exclude the effect of select items from GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share as well as adjust the provision for income taxes for such charges. Adjustments during the periods presented included non-cash depreciation and amortization expense related to certain assets attributable to acquisitions, certain carried interest incentive compensation expense (reversal) to align with the timing of associated revenue, the impact of fair value adjustments to real estate assets acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period, costs incurred related to legal entity restructuring, integration and other costs related to acquisitions, costs associated with workforce optimization efforts, and asset impairments.

(5)

Free cash flow is calculated as cash flow from operations, less capital expenditures (reflected in the investing section of the consolidated statement of cash flows).

(6)

Segment operating profit is the measure reported to the chief operating decision maker (CODM) for purposes of making decisions about allocating resources to each segment and assessing performance of each segment. Segment operating profit represents earnings before net interest expense, write-off of financing costs on extinguished debt, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and asset impairments, as well as adjustments related to the following: certain carried interest incentive compensation expense (reversal) to align with the timing of associated revenue, fair value adjustments to real estate acquired in the Telford Acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period, costs incurred related to legal entity restructuring, costs associated with workforce optimization efforts and integration and other costs related to acquisitions. Prior period results have been recast to conform to this definition.

(7)

Segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins represent segment operating profit divided by revenue and net revenue, respectively.

(8)

Adjusted revenue for the Real Estate Investments segment reflects revenue for this segment, less the direct cost of revenue, along with equity income from unconsolidated subsidiaries and gain on disposition of real estate, net of non-controlling interests. Adjusted revenue also removes the impact of fair value adjustments to real estate assets acquired in the Telford acquisition (purchase accounting) that were sold in the period.

(9)

Segment operating profit in the Real Estate Investments segment includes equity income from unconsolidated subsidiaries and gain on disposition of real estate, net of non-controlling interests, and the associated compensation expense.

(10)

Represents line of business profitability/losses, as adjusted

(11)

For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the company incurred capital expenditures of $46.3 million (reflected in the investing section of the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows) and received tenant concessions from landlords of $11.3 million (reflected in the operating section of the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows).

(12)

Net cash is calculated as cash available for company use less total debt (excluding non-recourse debt).

(13)

Cash represents cash and cash equivalents (excluding restricted cash) and excludes $113.8 million of cash in consolidated funds and other entities not available for company use at June 30, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following measures are considered “non-GAAP financial measures” under SEC guidelines:

(i)

Net revenue

(ii)

Adjusted revenue for the Real Estate Investments segment

(iii)

Net income attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. stockholders, as adjusted (which we also refer to as “adjusted net income”)

(iv)

Diluted income per share attributable to CBRE Group, Inc. shareholders, as adjusted (which we also refer to as “adjusted earnings per diluted share” or “adjusted EPS”)

(v)

Adjusted EBITDA

(vi)

Business line operating profit/loss

(vii)

Segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins

(viii)

Free cash flow

(ix)

Net cash

These measures are not recognized measurements under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). When analyzing our operating performance, investors should use these measures in addition to, and not as an alternative for, their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Our management generally uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate operating performance and for other discretionary purposes. The company believes these measures provide a more complete understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of current results to prior periods and may be useful for investors to analyze our financial performance because they eliminate the impact of selected charges that may obscure trends in the underlying performance of our business. The company further uses certain of these measures, and believes that they are useful to investors, for purposes described below.

With respect to net revenue: net revenue is gross revenue less costs largely associated with subcontracted vendor work performed for clients. We believe that investors may find this measure useful to analyze the company’s overall financial performance because it excludes costs reimbursable by clients that generally have no margin, and as such provides greater visibility into the underlying performance of our business. Prior to 2021, the company utilized fee revenue to analyze the overall financial performance. This metric excluded additional reimbursed costs, primarily related to employees dedicated to clients, some of which included minimal margin.

With respect to adjusted revenue: the company believes that investors may find this measure useful to analyze the financial performance of our Real Estate Investments segment because it is more reflective of this segment’s total operations.

With respect to adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted EBITDA, business line operating profit, and segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins: the company believes that investors may find these measures useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry because their calculations generally eliminate the accounting effects of acquisitions, which would include impairment charges of goodwill and intangibles created from acquisitions—and in the case of adjusted EBITDA, business line operating profit and segment operating profit on revenue and net revenue margins—the effects of financings and income tax and the accounting effects of capital spending. All of these measures and adjusted revenue may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. In the case of adjusted EBITDA, this measure is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our management’s discretionary use because it does not consider cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments. The adjusted EBITDA measure calculated herein may also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled definitions in our credit facilities and debt instruments, which amounts are further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges and are used by us to determine compliance with financial covenants therein and our ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt. The company also uses adjusted EBITDA, segment operating profit and adjusted EPS as significant components when measuring our operating performance under our employee incentive compensation programs.

With respect to free cash flow, the company believes that investors may find this measure useful to analyze the cash flow generated from operations after accounting for cash outflows to support operations and capital expenditures. With respect to net cash, the company believes that investors use this measure when calculating the company’s net leverage ratio.
