TORONTO, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ and TSX: CIGI) (“Colliers” or the “Company”) today announced operating and financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. All amounts are in US dollars.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, revenues were $1.0 billion, up 29% (31% in local currency) relative to the same quarter in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA (note 1) was $121.5 million, up 32% (33% in local currency) and adjusted EPS (note 2) was $1.44, up 38% versus the prior year period. First quarter adjusted EPS would have been approximately $0.02 higher excluding foreign exchange impacts. GAAP operating earnings were $40.8 million and included a $26.1 million loss on disposal of the Company’s Russian operations. GAAP operating earnings in the quarter were up 2% versus $40.0 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP diluted net loss per share was $0.42, versus diluted net earnings of $0.11 in the prior year quarter. First quarter GAAP EPS would have been approximately $0.02 higher excluding changes in foreign exchange rates.

“Colliers delivered strong first quarter results building on the momentum coming out of 2021,” said Jay S. Hennick, Global Chairman & CEO of Colliers. “Revenues, AEBITDA and AEPS were all up sharply and we were pleased to see assets under management (AUM) in our Investment Management segment also up considerably.”

“Last week, we announced the promotion of Chris McLernon to Chief Executive Officer of Real Estate Services| Global. Over the past 12 years as the leader of our EMEA business, Chris delivered exceptional results. He is a true culture carrier and has a deep understanding of the Colliers way of operating. In his new role, he will have direct oversight of Colliers’ Capital Markets, Leasing and Outsourcing & Advisory businesses globally, reporting to me. Having him on board will provide us with the additional bench strength we need to successfully pursue our ambitious 2025 growth plan.”

“During the quarter, we were also busy on the acquisition front. We added our affiliate operations in Cincinnati and Cleveland, completed the previously announced acquisition of our affiliate in Italy and Colliers Engineering & Design expanded its operations in the US Southwest. Just after quarter end, we also completed the previously announced addition of Antirion which is being integrated into our Colliers Global Investors platform in Europe. Once we complete the Basalt Infrastructure transaction later this year, our Investment Management business will represent about 23% (note 5) of our consolidated AEBITDA. This marks an important milestone in our service line diversification and continues the transformation of Colliers into a different kind of company. In the future, we expect our Investment Management segment to represent an even greater proportion of our overall AEBITDA. So far this year we have completed or announced acquisition investments totalling more than $400 million and our pipeline of potential opportunities remains solid. If we are successful, 2022 would result in a record year of capital allocation for Colliers.”

“The leadership of our company has a proven, 27-year track record of creating significant value for shareholders. The Colliers business model is balanced, highly diversified and asset-light. These characteristics, together with our enterprising culture, growth mindset and substantial inside ownership, position us well to continue delivering superior returns for shareholders in the future,” he concluded.

Segmented First Quarter Results
Revenues in the Americas region totalled $641.7 million for the first quarter, up 35% (35% in local currency) versus $475.8 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue growth was evenly distributed across all services lines. Leasing and Capital Markets activity was strong, particularly in industrial, land and multifamily asset classes. Outsourcing & Advisory revenues increased on solid growth in Engineering & Design (including recent acquisitions), Valuation and Loan Servicing. Adjusted EBITDA was $81.1 million, up 42% (43% in local currency) over the prior year quarter on higher revenues. GAAP operating earnings were $61.3 million, relative to $42.9 million in the prior year quarter.

Revenues in the EMEA region totalled $153.3 million for the first quarter, up 22% (30% in local currency) compared to $126.1 million in the prior year quarter with solid growth across all service lines. Leasing and Capital Markets benefitted from solid transaction activity while Outsourcing & Advisory revenue growth was driven by a strong recovery in project management revenues. Adjusted EBITDA was $4.9 million, up 9% (23% in local currency) over the prior year. GAAP operating loss was $30.8 million and included the loss on disposal of the Company’s Russian operations, versus an operating loss of $1.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Revenues in the Asia Pacific region totalled $119.4 million for the first quarter compared to $128.3 million in the prior year quarter, down 7% (down 3% in local currency). Revenue growth was impacted primarily by the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns in several Asian markets. Adjusted EBITDA was $10.2 million, down from $15.5 million in the prior year quarter. GAAP operating earnings was $8.2 million, versus $11.7 million in the prior year quarter.

The corporate GAAP operating loss for the quarter was $15.1 million relative to a loss of $23.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, with the prior year period impacted by contingent acquisition consideration expense related to acquisitions.

Outlook for 2022
The Company is increasing its outlook for full year 2022 to reflect strong first quarter operating results as well as the impact of acquisitions. The financial outlook is based on the Company’s best available information as of the date of this press release, and remains subject to change based on, but not limited to, numerous macroeconomic, health, social, geopolitical (including escalation of hostilities, outbreak or continuation of war, elections, disruption of supply chains) and related factors.

Disposal of Russian operations
In March 2022, Colliers discontinued its operations in Russia and terminated its affiliate in Belarus. The disposal of the Company’s operations resulted in a loss of $26.1 million, the majority of which was attributable to the realization of accumulated foreign currency translation losses. The loss was not tax deductible and was substantially all non-cash.

Repurchase of Subordinate Voting Shares
During the period from March 3, 2022 to April 25, 2022, the Company purchased, 999,439 Subordinate Voting Shares for total consideration of $126.4 million under its current normal course issuer bid (“NCIB”) at a weighted average purchase price of $126.42 per share. Under the NCIB, all shares are purchased for cancellation. Colliers may purchase its Subordinate Voting Shares, from time to time, if it believes that the market price of its Subordinate Voting Shares is attractive and that the purchase would be an appropriate use of corporate funds and in the best interests of Colliers.

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) loss on disposal of Russian operations; (v) depreciation and amortization, including amortization of mortgage servicing rights (“MSRs”); (vi) gains attributable to MSRs; (vii) acquisition-related items (including contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments, contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense and transaction costs); (viii) restructuring costs and (ix) 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.

  March 31
(in thousands of US$) 2022     2021  
             
Net earnings $ 21,317     $ 24,807

Other income, including equity earnings from non-consolidated investments   (3,128 )     (1,982 )
Interest expense, net   6,318       8,284

Loss on disposal of Russian operations   26,090

Restructuring costs   90       293  
Stock-based compensation expense   4,861       2,925  
Adjusted EBITDA $ 121,461     $ 92,129  

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) loss on disposal of Russian operations; (iii) amortization expense related to intangible assets recognized in connection with acquisitions and MSRs; (iv) gains attributable to MSRs; (v) acquisition-related items; (vi) restructuring costs and (vii) 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.

(1) Amounts shown reflect the “if-converted” method’s dilutive impact on the adjusted EPS calculation for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

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 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.
