TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Onex Corporation (TSX: ONEX) today announced its financial results for the third-quarter and nine-months ended September 30, 2020 and an update on matters following quarter end.
“Building on our portfolio improvements last quarter, we continue to demonstrate increased momentum in our private equity and credit portfolios, resulting in a very good quarter for Onex,” said Gerry Schwartz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Onex. “Earlier this quarter, I was delighted to announce Bobby Le Blanc as President of Onex, in recognition of his leadership ability and the positive role he continues to play in our success.”
For the three-months ended September 30, 2020, total segment net earnings were $515 million ($5.39 per fully diluted share). Investing segment earnings of $492 million ($5.17 per fully diluted share) were primarily driven by net gains on Onex’ private equity and credit investments consistent with the recovery in those markets during the quarter. Third-quarter asset and wealth management segment earnings of $23 million ($0.22 per fully diluted share) were driven by management and advisory fees as well as an increase in unrealized carried interest.
For the nine-months ended September 30, 2020, total segment net earnings were $152 million ($1.55 per fully diluted share). Investing segment earnings of $164 million ($1.67 per fully diluted share) were primarily driven by a net gain on Onex’ private equity investments which reflects the overall resiliency and diversification of the operating businesses that Onex has invested in. The asset and wealth management segment loss for the nine-months ended September 30, 2020 was $12 million ($0.12 per fully diluted share) driven primarily by a net reversal of unrealized carried interest.
