Och-Ziff Reports Wider Loss In Q1, But Funds Post Gains

May 3 2011 | 12:39pm ET

Och-Ziff Capital Management reported a first quarter net loss of $95.5 million for Q1 2011, up from $88.6 million a year earlier, and attributed to charges stemming from its 2007 initial public offering.

The hedge fund manager said higher management fees drove a 33% year-on-year hike in its “distributable earnings” to $65.2 million or 16 cents per Class A share.

Higher management fees and incentive incomes increased 26% to $138.4 million, while assets under management increased to $29.4 billion as of May 1 (compared to $27.6 billion as of January 1).

Och-Ziff also reported estimated year-to-date net returns (through April 30, 2011) of 4.1% for its Master Fund, 4.0% for its Europe Master Fund, 2.4% for its Asia Master Fund and 5.5% for its best performer, the Global Special Investments Master Fund.

"We believe that capital inflows into the hedge fund industry are accelerating as institutional investors seek to increase the proportion of non-correlated strategies in their portfolios," said Daniel Och, chairman and chief executive. "We remain confident that we are viewed as a manager of choice, which we believe positions us to attract a meaningful share of new industry flows."
