SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bridge Investment Group Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BRDG) (“Bridge” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.
Net Income (Loss) was $(2.8) million for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. On a basic and diluted basis, net income (loss) attributable to Bridge per share of Class A common stock was $(0.24).
Distributable Earnings of Bridge Investment Group Holdings LLC (the “Operating Company”) were $35.0 million, or $0.20 per share after-tax, for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. Fee Related Earnings to the Operating Company were $35.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.
Robert Morse, Bridge’s Executive Chairman, stated “Despite market headwinds in capital raising and deployment, Bridge delivered a solid quarter with the help of growth in many of our key financial metrics, including 43% year-over-year growth in fee-earning AUM and 33% year-over-year growth in recurring management fees. This has served our platform well, providing stability to our business during a period of volatility. We have remained patient and selective through unstable times as asset prices have adjusted, and more recently have found attractive opportunities to deploy meaningful capital. As we look forward, Bridge is poised for success across a number of growth vectors, including residential rental, logistics, credit and secondaries strategies.”
Jonathan Slager, Bridge’s Chief Executive Officer, added “In uncertain times, forward integration and sector specialization is our vital differentiator. We're experiencing positive trends in most of our areas of focus and seeing green shoots on the transaction side as our deal pipelines grow. We are well-positioned to execute on the widening opportunity set we see today.”
Bridge declared a quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share of its Class A common stock, payable on September 15, 2023 to its Class A common stockholders of record at the close of business on September 1, 2023.
