Carlyle Profit Up 0.5%

May 9 2013 | 11:31am ET

The Carlyle Group's first-quarter profit rose slightly on stronger returns, higher fee income and increased asset sales, the private equity giant said.

Washington, D.C.-based Carlyle's economic net income rose 0.5% to $393.9 million, besting analysts' estimates. Carlyle credit increased fee income, itself due to rising stock markets and higher valuations. The firm also said it took advantage of the former to sell some shares and exit at least one investment.

Under generally-accepted accounting principles, Carlyle's profit was $33.8 million. Distributable earnings actually dropped from $178.8 million to $168.4 million; Carlyle will pay a 16-cent divided to investors.

Carlyle's buyout funds increased by 9% in the first quarter. All told, its funds, including real-estate and some Global Market Strategies vehicles, rose 7% on the quarter. Assets under management rose 3.5% in the quarter to $176.3 billion.
