SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bridge Investment Group Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BRDG) (“Bridge” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Total Revenue and Investment Income for Bridge Investment Group Holdings LLC (the “Operating Company”) were $92.2 million and $84.9 million, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. These data increased 79% and 340%, respectively, from revenue and investment income figures from the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Net Income applicable to the Operating Company was $58.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $27.2 for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, representing a 113% increase year over year. On a basic and diluted basis, net income attributable to Bridge per share of Class A common stock was $0.41 for the post IPO period from July 16, 2021 through September 30, 2021.

Distributable Earnings of the Operating Company were $42.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to $14.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, on a pro forma basis, an increase of $27.5 million or 185%.

Robert Morse, Bridge’s Executive Chairman, commented that, “Bridge delivered another quarter of strong results, based on record capital raising and deployment across our investment verticals. We ended the quarter with record AUM and momentum in the specialized verticals within real estate in which we compete. Our existing strategies continue to attract new capital and our newly launched Logistics strategies are already active in the markets. We continue to see significant growth opportunity for Bridge’s unique investment approach and the information advantage we gain with our forward vertical integration and property management. We are proud that our third quarter results represent new highs for fee-paying AUM, fee-related earnings, and distributable earnings.”

Jonathan Slager, Bridge’s Chief Executive Officer, added “commercial real estate fundamentals continue to be healthy and are recovering in tandem with economic growth. Bridge took advantage of attractive demand over the third quarter to raise a record $1.5 billion of equity commitments and also to deploy a record $1.3 billion of equity in new investments. Bridge also accelerated the pace of investment realizations in the third quarter to take advantage of strong valuations, especially for multifamily assets. With $2.1 billion of dry powder and $302 million of unrealized performance fees, the future looks bright for continued growth in fee revenue.”

Common Dividend

Bridge declared a quarterly dividend of $0.24 per share of its Class A common stock, payable on December 17, 2021, to its Class A common stockholders of record at the close of business on December 3, 2021.
