For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, revenues were $1.13 billion, up 19% (23% in local currency), adjusted EBITDA (note 1) was $161.3 million, up 18% (21% in local currency) and adjusted EPS (note 2) was $1.84, up 16% versus the prior year period.

GAAP diluted net earnings per share were $0.67 versus diluted net loss of $10.53 in the prior year quarter. Second quarter GAAP EPS would have been approximately $0.05 higher excluding changes in foreign exchange rates.

Prior year GAAP operating loss of $345.8 million included the settlement of the LTIA. The GAAP earnings per share were $0.26 as compared to diluted loss per share of $10.80. Year to date GAAP EPS would have been approximately $0.08 higher excluding changes in foreign exchange rates.

“Colliers reported strong second quarter results with continued solid revenue growth across all service lines,” said Jay S. Hennick, Global Chairman & CEO of Colliers.

“During the quarter, we also continued to grow our Investment Management segment in both size and scale furthering our goal of becoming a major player in the rapidly growing alternative private capital industry. We completed two acquisitions and a third after quarter end. Then, in late June, we announced the addition of Versus Capital, a highly successful alternative real asset manager in the US with strong private wealth distribution capabilities. Once completed, Colliers will have more than $85 billion in assets under management (“AUM”).“

“Investment Management now comprises about 30% of Colliers’ pro forma annualized adjusted EBITDA and the business compares very favorably with other public peers in the investment management industry. Our revenues are predominately from recurring management fees, about 90% of our investment funds are perpetual or long-dated strategies – defined as 10 years or more, and 70% are in rapidly growing sectors like alternatives and infrastructure. Most importantly, each of our platforms has a long history of delivering top-tier performance for investors through all investment cycles. Over the past 6 years, Colliers has built an impressive Investment Management business and we continue to see great potential in the years to come.”

“Separately, during the quarter, we added a building consultancy and project management leader in the UK, enhancing our service capabilities in Europe and continuing the growth of our Outsourcing & Advisory segment.”

“Overall, Colliers continues to transform into a more resilient, global and diversified services company with 55% of our pro forma earnings coming from recurring revenue streams and the balance from essential advisory services. Based on acquisitions already completed or announced, we expect 2022 to be a record year of capital deployment, with more than $1 billion invested.“

“With our strong global brand and operating platform, proven track record of more than 27 years, balanced and diversified business model, unique enterprising culture and significant inside ownership, we expect to continue delivering excellent returns for shareholders for many years to come,” he concluded.

Segmented Second Quarter Results
Revenues in the Americas region totalled $740.7 million for the second quarter, up 27% (28% in local currency) versus $582.8 million in the prior year quarter. Outsourcing & Advisory revenues were up sharply, driven by Engineering & Design (including recent acquisitions). Capital Markets growth was robust, particularly in industrial and land sales, partially offset by a reduction in debt origination activity. Adjusted EBITDA was $101.6 million, up 29% (30% in local currency) over the prior year quarter and included an $11.7 million gain on the termination of a lease, offset by (i) higher discretionary and variable costs as well as (ii) changes in revenue mix with a reduction in higher-margin debt origination. GAAP operating earnings were $81.1 million, relative to $63.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Revenues in the EMEA region totalled $169.3 million for the second quarter, up 7% (20% in local currency) compared to $158.6 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue growth was led by Outsourcing & Advisory (including recent acquisition). Leasing activity was up, however, Capital Markets revenues were impacted by geopolitical uncertainty in the region. Adjusted EBITDA was $14.4 million, down 30% (21% in local currency) relative to the prior year and was impacted by (i) lower Capital Markets revenues and (ii) higher discretionary and variable costs. GAAP operating earnings were $4.2 million, versus operating earnings of $14.4 million in the prior year quarter.

Revenues in the Asia Pacific region totalled $142.6 million for the second quarter compared to $154.0 million in the prior year quarter, down 7% (down 1% in local currency). Revenues were impacted by continued COVID-19 lockdowns in several Asian markets which extended until late in the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $19.5 million, down 5% (up 2% in local currency) from $20.7 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP operating earnings was $17.6 million, versus $16.7 million in the prior year quarter.

Investment Management revenues for the second quarter were $75.1 million compared to $50.5 million in the prior year quarter, up 49% (48% in local currency). Passthrough revenue from historical carried interest represented $1.9 million for the quarter versus nil in the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of carried interest, revenue was up 45% (45% in local currency) driven by (i) management fee growth from increased assets under management and (ii) two acquisitions completed during the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $29.2 million, up 37% (36% in local currency) over the prior year quarter. GAAP operating earnings were $19.2 million in the quarter, versus $14.2 million in the prior year quarter. Assets under management were $68.7 billion as of June 30, 2022, up 54% from $44.5 billion on June 30, 2021. Including Rockwood Capital, completed on July 6, 2022, assets under management are now $81 billion, of which $70 billion are either perpetual or long-dated strategies.

Unallocated global corporate costs as reported in Adjusted EBITDA were $3.4 million in the second quarter, relative to $5.0 million in the prior year quarter. The corporate GAAP operating loss for the quarter was $18.2 million relative to a loss of $494.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, with the prior year period impacted by (i) the settlement of the LTIA and (ii) contingent acquisition consideration expense related to acquisitions.

Notes
Non-GAAP Measures
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) settlement of LTIA; (v) loss on disposal of operations; (vi) depreciation and amortization, including amortization of mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”); (vii) gains attributable to MSRs; (viii) acquisition-related items (including contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments, contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense and transaction costs); (ix) restructuring costs and (x) 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 $ 161,313     $ 136,558     $ 282,774     $ 228,687  

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 as calculated under the “if-converted” method, adjusted for the effect, after income tax, of: (i) the non-controlling interest redemption increment; (ii) settlement of LTIA; (iii) loss on disposal of operations; (iv) amortization expense related to intangible assets recognized in connection with acquisitions and MSRs; (v) gains attributable to MSRs; (vi) acquisition-related items; (vii) restructuring costs and (viii) 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.

Adjusted EPS is calculated using the “if-converted” method of calculating earnings per share in relation to the Convertible Notes, which were issued on May 19, 2020. As such, the interest (net of tax) on the Convertible Notes is added to the numerator and the additional shares issuable on conversion of the Convertible Notes are added to the denominator of the earnings per share calculation to determine if an assumed conversion is more dilutive than no assumption of conversion. The “if-converted” method is used if the impact of the assumed conversion is dilutive. The “if-converted” method is dilutive for the adjusted EPS calculation for all periods presented.

3. Reconciliation of net cash flow from operations to free cash flow:

Free cash flow is defined as net cash flow from operating activities plus contingent acquisition consideration paid, plus the cash portion of the LTIA settlement, less purchases of fixed assets, plus cash collections on AR Facility deferred purchase price. We use free cash flow as a measure to evaluate and monitor operating performance as well as our ability to service debt, fund acquisitions and pay of dividends to shareholders and distributions to non-controlling interests. We present free cash flow as a supplemental measure because we believe this measure is a financial metric used by many investors to compare valuation and liquidity measures across 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 free cash flow may differ from other issuers and accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net cash flow from operating activities to free cash flow appears below.

  Three months ended   Six months ended
  June 30   June 30
(in thousands of US$) 2022     2021     2022     2021  
                       
Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities $ 32,399     $ 56,687     $ (248,310 )   $ 18,548  
Contingent acquisition consideration paid   1,257       2,997       60,810       10,472  
Settlement of LTIA (cash portion)         96,186             96,186  
Purchase of fixed assets   (13,581 )     (10,510 )     (23,416 )     (32,603 )
Cash collections on AR Facility deferred purchase price   90,101       11,824       256,429       22,732  
Free cash flow $ 110,176     $ 157,184     $ 45,513     $ 115,335  

4. 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 no impact from acquired entities in the current and prior periods. Revenue from acquired entities, including any foreign exchange impacts, are treated as acquisition growth until the respective anniversaries of the acquisitions. 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.

5. Assets under management

We use the term assets under management (“AUM”) as a measure of the scale of our Investment Management operations. AUM is defined as the gross market value of operating assets and the projected gross cost of development assets of the funds, partnerships and accounts to which we provide management and advisory services, including capital that such funds, partnerships and accounts have the right to call from investors pursuant to capital commitments. Our definition of AUM may differ from those used by other issuers and as such may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.

6. Adjusted EBITDA from recurring revenue percentage

Adjusted EBITDA from recurring revenue percentage is computed on a trailing twelve-month basis and represents the proportion of adjusted EBITDA (note 1) that is derived from Outsourcing & Advisory and Investment Management service lines. Both these service lines represent medium to long-term duration revenue streams that are either contractual or repeatable in nature. We report this metric on a pro forma basis, incorporating the expected full year impact of business acquisitions and dispositions.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings
(1)  Acquisition-related items include contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments, contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense and transaction costs.
(2)  Settlement of Long-Term Incentive Arrangement with the Company’s Chairman & CEO as approved by 95% of the Company’s disinterested shareholders. The settlement resulted in a cash payment of $96,186 and the issuance of 3,572,858 Subordinate Voting Shares on April 16, 2021.
(3)  Diluted EPS is calculated using the “if-converted” method of calculating earnings per share in relation to the Convertible Notes, which were issued on May 19, 2020. As such, the interest (net of tax) on the Convertible Notes is added to the numerator and the additional shares issuable on conversion of the Convertible Notes are added to the denominator of the earnings per share calculation to determine if an assumed conversion is more dilutive than no assumption of conversion. The “if-converted” method is used if the impact of the assumed conversion is dilutive. The “if-converted” method is dilutive for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The “if-converted” method is anti-dilutive for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021 and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021.
(4)  See definition and reconciliation above.
