Washington, District of Columbia, UNITED STATES

WASHINGTON, July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group L.P. (NASDAQ:CG) today reported its unaudited results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Carlyle Co-CEO David M. Rubenstein said, “Carlyle performed well on all metrics in the quarter, with $5.0 billion in gross new fund commitments, 5% appreciation across our carry fund portfolio, $5.3 billion in realized proceeds for our fund investors and a healthy $0.63 per common unit distribution for unitholders. Our firm is well positioned to take advantage of market opportunities wherever and whenever they may arise.”

Carlyle Co-CEO William E. Conway, Jr. said, “Our diverse and experienced investment teams continue to find attractive new opportunities to deploy investor capital, and we have invested $12.7 billion in equity over the last twelve months. While this is a challenging time to invest given low or negative interest rates around the world alongside slowing growth, I am confident our investment teams will continue to find good opportunities.”

U.S. GAAP results for Q2 2016 included income before provision for income taxes of $68 million, and net income attributable to the common unitholders through The Carlyle Group L.P. of $6 million, or net income per common unit of $0.07, on a diluted basis.  U.S. GAAP results for the twelve months ended June 30, 2016 included loss before provision for income taxes of $604 million and net loss attributable to The Carlyle Group L.P. of $74 million.  Total balance sheet assets were $10 billion as of June 30, 2016.
