Bridge Investment Group Holdings Inc. Reports First Quarter 2023 Results
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bridge Investment Group Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BRDG) (“Bridge” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.
Net Income (Loss) was $(67.4) million for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. On a basic and diluted basis, net income (loss) attributable to Bridge per share of Class A common stock was $0.03 and $(0.13), respectively.
Distributable Earnings of Bridge Investment Group Holdings LLC (the “Operating Company”) were $33.4 million, or $0.19 per share after-tax, for the quarter ended March 31, 2023. Fee Related Earnings to the Operating Company were $30.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.
Robert Morse, Bridge’s Executive Chairman, remarked “During the first quarter we continued to build momentum in our business across multiple metrics: we increased fee-earning AUM 51% year-over-year and closed Multifamily V at a record $2.3 billion, highlighting investors’ confidence in our specialized strategies. We continued to deploy capital into attractive fixed income opportunities and selectively in equity strategies. Additionally, we closed the acquisition of Newbury Partners on March 31, 2023, expanding Bridge into the attractive secondaries sector and integration has been comprehensive and seamless. We have strong conviction in each of our key thematic areas - Residential Rental, Logistics, Private Credit and Secondaries. These are resilient strategies which we believe benefit from durable secular tailwinds.”
Jonathan Slager, Bridge’s Chief Executive Officer, added “Bridge’s specialized investment approach, forward integration into property management and conservative leverage are important differentiators for our company. Over 98% of our fee-earning AUM is in long-term, closed end funds that have no redemption features and a weighted-average duration of 7.5 years, adding to the foundational stability of our business. Despite broader market headwinds, we are well positioned with $4.4 billion of dry powder to invest at what we believe will be an attractive point in the cycle.”
Bridge declared a quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share of its Class A common stock, payable on June 16, 2023 to its Class A common stockholders of record at the close of business on June 2, 2023.
