TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ and TSX: CIGI) today announced fourth quarter and full year operating and financial results for the year ended December 31, 2018. All amounts are in US dollars.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2018, revenues were $889.9 million, a 16% increase (18% in local currency) relative to the comparable prior year period, adjusted EBITDA (note 1) was $133.2 million, up 39% (39% in local currency) and adjusted EPS (note 2) was $1.77, up 30% versus the prior year period. Fourth quarter adjusted EPS would have been approximately $0.01 higher excluding foreign exchange impacts. GAAP operating earnings were $98.1 million, relative to $78.9 million in the prior year period. GAAP EPS was $1.33 per share, relative to $0.82 per share in the prior year period, with the prior period impacted by a one-time charge of $13.3 million ($0.34 per share) to re-measure US deferred income tax assets at lower corporate tax rates upon the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the United States. Fourth quarter GAAP EPS would have been approximately $0.01 higher excluding changes in foreign exchange rates.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, revenues were $2.83 billion, a 16% increase (15% in local currency) relative to the comparable prior year period, adjusted EBITDA was $311.4 million, up 28% (27% in local currency) and adjusted EPS was $4.09, up 29% versus the prior year period. Full year adjusted EPS would have been approximately $0.03 lower excluding foreign exchange impacts. GAAP operating earnings were $201.4 million, relative to $167.4 million in the prior year period. GAAP EPS was $2.45 per share, compared to $1.31 per share in the prior year, with the prior year impacted by the re-measurement of US deferred income tax assets as noted above. Full year GAAP EPS would have been approximately $0.03 lower excluding changes in foreign exchange rates.

“Colliers delivered robust revenue and earnings growth for the fourth quarter to cap off an outstanding year, with each of our operating units contributing excellent results,” said Jay S. Hennick, Chairman and CEO of Colliers International. “In 2018, we established our Investment Management platform with the acquisition of Harrison Street Real Estate Capital, which together with our existing European investment management business has $26.4 billion of assets under management as of December 31, 2018. We also completed 11 other transactions in markets around the world to strengthen our core real estate services business. With 2018 now complete, we are well on-track to achieving our ambitious five-year growth plan to double our size by 2020. Looking ahead, despite a number of ongoing geopolitical events, we are confident in our business prospects for 2019 with expectations of continued organic growth in most markets and the completion of strategic acquisitions to strengthen our highly respected brand and global platform that is recognized among the best in the industry,” he concluded.

Consolidated revenues for the fourth quarter grew 18% on a local currency basis, with strong contributions from Lease Brokerage and Outsourcing & Advisory services. Consolidated internal revenues measured in local currencies were up 7% (note 3), led by strong Lease Brokerage activity in the Americas region.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, consolidated revenues grew 14% on a local currency basis, led by strong growth in Lease Brokerage and Outsourcing & Advisory services. Internal revenue growth in local currencies was 6% led by Lease Brokerage in all three geographic regions, with the balance from acquisitions completed during the past year.

Segmented Fourth Quarter Results
Americas region revenues totalled $474.5 million for the fourth quarter compared to $419.7 million in the prior year quarter, up 14% on a local currency basis. Internal growth in local currencies was 9% and recent acquisitions contributed 5% to growth. Internal growth was generated primarily from Lease Brokerage activity, led by Canada. Adjusted EBITDA was $45.6 million, versus $37.5 million the prior year quarter, with margins positively impacted by operating leverage on existing operations. GAAP operating earnings were $34.3 million, relative to $31.2 million in the prior year quarter.

EMEA region revenues totalled $216.9 million for the fourth quarter compared to $181.1 million in the prior year quarter, an increase of 21% on a local currency basis. Acquisitions contributed 15% growth with internal growth at 6%. All three service lines contributed to internal growth, particularly in Germany and France. Adjusted EBITDA was $48.9 million, up from $35.4 million, with margin expansion from improved results in France and the favourable impact of recent acquisitions. GAAP operating earnings were $38.9 million, up from $29.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

GAAP operating earnings were $27.2 million, up from $24.3 million in the prior year quarter.

The new Investment Management segment is comprised of Harrison Street which was acquired in July 2018, and the Company’s existing European investment management business which was previously reported within the EMEA segment. Investment management revenues for the fourth quarter were $38.9 million and adjusted EBITDA was $17.7 million. GAAP operating earnings were $11.1 million relative to $1.7 million in the prior year quarter and were impacted by significant acquisition-related intangible asset amortization. Assets under management increased to $26.4 billion as of December 31, 2018, reflecting solid growth since the date of acquisition of Harrison Street.

Global corporate costs as reported in Adjusted EBITDA were $8.1 million in the fourth quarter, relative to $4.8 million in the prior year period, with the increase attributable to higher insurance costs as well as performance-based management incentive compensation accruals. The GAAP operating loss was $13.4 million, relative to $7.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Internal growth was concentrated in Lease Brokerage, primarily in Germany, with other service lines flat due to a strong prior year comparative.

GAAP operating earnings were $53.9 million, up from $45.6 million in 2017.

GAAP operating earnings were $66.2 million, up from $55.1 million in the prior year.

Investment Management segment revenues totalled $76.0 million for the year, compared to $12.7 million in the prior year with the increase attributable to the acquisition of Harrison Street in July 2018.

Notes
1. Reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings, adjusted to exclude: (i) income tax; (ii) other expense (income); (iii) interest expense; (iv) depreciation and amortization; (v) acquisition-related items (including transaction costs, contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments and contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense); (vi) restructuring costs and (vii) stock-based compensation expense. We use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our own operating performance and our ability to service debt, as well as an integral part of our planning and reporting systems. Additionally, we use this measure in conjunction with discounted cash flow models to determine the Company’s overall enterprise valuation and to evaluate acquisition targets. We present adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure because we believe such measure is useful to investors as a reasonable indicator of operating performance because of the low capital intensity of the Company’s service operations. We believe this measure is a financial metric used by many investors to compare companies, especially in the services industry. This measure is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP in the United States, and should not be considered as a substitute for operating earnings, net earnings or cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating adjusted EBITDA may differ from other issuers and accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted EBITDA appears below.

Adjusted EBITDA$133,203  $96,033 $311,435  $242,824 

2. Reconciliation of net earnings and diluted net earnings per common share to adjusted net earnings and adjusted EPS:

Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted net earnings per share, adjusted for the effect, after income tax, of: (i) the non-controlling interest redemption increment; (ii) income tax expense on enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the United States (“US Tax Reform”); (iii) amortization expense related to intangible assets recognized in connection with acquisitions; (iv) acquisition-related items; (v) restructuring costs and (vi) stock-based compensation expense. We believe this measure is useful to investors because it provides a supplemental way to understand the underlying operating performance of the Company and enhances the comparability of operating results from period to period. Adjusted EPS is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as a substitute for diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating this non-GAAP measure may differ from other issuers and, accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted net earnings and of diluted net earnings per share to adjusted EPS appears below.

3. Local currency revenue growth rate and internal revenue growth rate measures

Percentage revenue variances presented on a local currency basis are calculated by translating the current period results of our non-US dollar denominated operations to US dollars using the foreign currency exchange rates from the periods against which the current period results are being compared. Percentage revenue variances presented on an internal growth basis are calculated assuming acquired entities were owned for the entire current period as well as the entire prior period. Revenue from acquired entities is estimated based on the operating performance of each acquired entity for the year prior to the acquisition date. We believe that these revenue growth rate methodologies provide a framework for assessing the Company’s performance and operations excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and acquisitions. Since these revenue growth rate measures are not calculated under GAAP, they may not be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.

Notes to Segmented Results
(1)  New US GAAP revenue guidance was adopted effective January 1, 2018 which had the impact of (i) increasing the proportion of reimbursable expenses related to property management activities accounted for as revenue on a gross basis, with no impact on earnings and (ii) accelerating the recognition of revenue related to certain Lease Brokerage transaction, with an accompanying immaterial increase to earnings. The Company also restated its results for the three and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2017 to reflect the impact of the adoption.
(2)  The Investment Management segment includes Harrison Street which was acquired in July 2018, as well as the Company’s existing European investment management business which was previously reported within the EMEA segment.
