Bridge Investment Group Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BRDG) (“Bridge” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Total Revenue and Investment Income were $99.0 million and $104.9 million, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. These increased 38% and 31%, respectively, from revenue and investment income figures of $72.0 million and $79.9 million, respectively, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.
Net Income was $124.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $83.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, representing a 50% increase year-over-year. On a basic and diluted basis, net income attributable to Bridge per share of Class A common stock was $0.44.
Distributable Earnings of Bridge Investment Group Holdings LLC (the “Operating Company”) was $54.6 million, or $0.32 per share after-tax, for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $36.6 million, or $0.25 per share after-tax, for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 on a proforma basis, representing a 28% increase year-over-year on a per share basis.
Robert Morse, Bridge’s Executive Chairman, remarked, “Bridge reported its best quarter for distributable earnings in company history, increasing 14% from Q1 2022, against a more challenging macroeconomic backdrop. This was driven by strong margins and realizations. Our specialized investment approach and vertically integrated business model continue to drive attractive returns for our investors. While we acknowledge the challenges presented by current conditions for alternative asset managers broadly, we are well positioned to navigate the road ahead with long-term committed capital, a strengthened balance sheet and our carefully curated focus on some of the most attractive investment sectors within US real estate.”
Jonathan Slager, Bridge’s Chief Executive Officer, added “Bridge delivered another strong quarter with fundraising inflows of $1.5 billion and deployment of $938.2 million, increasing gross assets under management to $42.0 billion and fee earning assets under management to $15.5 billion, up 46% and 44% respectively, from a year ago. During the quarter, we completed the final closing of our Debt Strategies Fund IV, which raised $2.9 billion in equity commitments, almost two times the amount raised in the predecessor fund, demonstrating the scalability of our business. Bridge also had significant investment realizations in the second quarter to take advantage of continuing interest in U.S. real estate, especially for multifamily assets.”
Bridge declared a quarterly dividend of $0.30 per share of its Class A common stock, payable on September 16, 2022 to its Class A common stockholders of record at the close of business on September 2, 2022.
