Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (NYSE:BAM)(TSX:BAM.A)(EURONEXT:BAMA) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

"We are continuing to see clients allocate an increasing portion of their capital to Brookfield's real asset investment strategies, due to the superior risk adjusted returns generated by these assets," commented Bruce Flatt, CEO of Brookfield. "Our flagship listed partnerships and private funds are well positioned to deliver long-term performance for clients and shareholders."


--  Consolidated net income for the quarter was $1.6 billion, or $1.19 per
    share, nearly four times the $0.31 recorded in the second quarter last
    year. Net income for the six months increased to 
    $2.4 billion. 
    
--  Funds from operations ("FFO") for Brookfield shareholders were $569
    million or $0.84 per share, 24% higher than the $0.68 recorded last
    year. This reflected increases in asset management fees, realized
    disposition gains and the contribution from capital deployed over the
    last 12 months. 
    
--  Fee bearing capital increased to $84 billion and represented 16% growth
    from the same quarter last year.

Operating Highlights

We expanded our asset management franchise and our flagship listed partnerships.

Fee bearing capital increased during the quarter by $7 billion to $84 billion, which was 16% higher than the same quarter last year after adjusting for the sale of a low-margin fixed income investment business. We acquired the remaining shares in our office property company, which increased the equity base of our flagship listed property partnership by $500 million. We added $1.6 billion of assets under management in our public markets asset management business, primarily through market appreciation and fund flows to property and infrastructure securities.

Our flagship private funds have committed or invested approximately 60% of their capital commitments in aggregate, and we continue to maintain a robust pipeline of investment opportunities. This gives us confidence that we will be in a position to launch successor funds well before expiration of their investment period, which should in turn lead to increases in fee bearing capital. Total assets under management were $192 billion at the end of the quarter.

We announced or completed acquisitions and capital expansions that will deploy over $2 billion of capital on behalf of clients and Brookfield shareholders.

We continued to invest in emerging markets and Europe, where we believe valuations are compelling, in particular when compared to the U.S. We announced plans to acquire a portfolio of office properties in India with an aggregate value of approximately $800 million, continued to move forward with the acquisition of a port and rail network in Brazil, and closed the purchase of wind farms in Ireland for $690 million.

Across our property business, we recycled $1.2 billion through the sale of 13 mature properties. We invested approximately $450 million in retail projects in New York. Our renewable energy business moved forward with the purchase of the stake we did not own in one of the largest hydroelectric facilities in North America for $613 million, and launched development of new wind projects in Ireland. Our infrastructure group announced plans to acquire a natural gas storage facility in California and continues to move forward with an acquisition of a container terminal in New York and district energy businesses in Chicago, Seattle and Las Vegas.

Our private equity group made further add-on purchases in a number of areas and now owns a substantial face value of debt in the power generation and distribution subsidiary of a Texas company that is currently in bankruptcy, making us one of its largest creditors.

We increased cash flow and created value with growth initiatives and operational improvements in all of our major businesses.

FFO excluding gains was $422 million, compared to $406 million in the same quarter a year ago. Our asset management business generated fee revenues of $185 million ($702 million on a LTM basis) leading to a 24% increase in quarterly fee related earnings to $88 million. The continued increase is due to 16% growth in fee-bearing capital and a resultant 31% increase in the fees generated from our listed partnerships, private funds and public market business.

Our property group generated FFO of $137 million, excluding gains, up 10% from the same quarter last year, as a result of increased ownership of our office and U.S. retail portfolios, opportunistic investments, and increases in net rents compared with expiring leases. Our office property group announced new long-term leases in New York and London that significantly increased our occupancy rates and will contribute to cash flow increases by 2016. We signed new leases that were on average 5% above expiring rents in our office properties and 14% above expiring rents in our retail portfolio.

Our renewable energy assets generated FFO of $83 million, up 5% over last year, and benefitted from the contribution from recently acquired assets and increased energy prices and capacity sales on uncontracted generation. In Brazil, we locked in long-term power supply contracts with counterparties at attractive levels.

Our infrastructure group recorded $53 million of FFO, which was up on a comparable or "same store" basis but lower than the previous year, which included the results of an Australasian utility sold in the fourth quarter of 2013. Performance was in line with expectations, and benefited from increased ownership of our Brazilian toll road network as well as inflation indexation and a larger regulated asset base in our utilities group. We continue to invest in the expansion of our South American toll roads and UK port operations.

Our private equity group generated $123 million of FFO excluding gains. This was lower than the 2013 quarter, which included additional FFO from assets that were subsequently sold, in addition to a decrease in panelboard prices. Our construction business announced new mandates totalling $1.2 billion, including a contract to build a major stadium in Australia. In our North American residential operations, we recorded higher profits following an increase in the level of land development and sales activity over the last year.

Realized disposition gains generated $147 million of FFO, compared with $58 million in the same quarter a year ago, and included a $68 million gain on the sale of a Denver office property and a $30 million gain on the repayment in full of a distressed debt investment in a European office portfolio.

Dividend Declaration

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of US$0.16 per share (representing US$0.64 per annum), payable on September 30, 2014 to shareholders of record as at the close of business on August 31, 2014. The Board also declared all of the regular monthly and quarterly dividends on its preferred shares.

Basis of Presentation

This news release and accompanying financial statements are based on International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") unless otherwise noted and make reference to funds from operations.

Funds from Operations (FFO) is defined as net income attributable to shareholders prior to fair value changes, depreciation and amortization, and deferred income taxes, and includes realized disposition gains that are not recorded in net income as determined under IFRS. FFO also includes the company's share of equity accounted investments' funds from operations. FFO consists of the following two components:


--  FFO from Operating Activities represents the company's share of revenues
    less direct costs and interest expenses; excludes realized disposition
    gains, fair value changes, depreciation and amortization and deferred
    income taxes; and includes our proportionate share of FFO from operating
    activities recorded by equity accounted investments. We present this
    measure as we believe it assists in describing our results and variances
    within FFO. 
    
--  Realized Disposition Gains are included in FFO as the purchase and sale
    of assets is a normal part of the company's business. Realized
    disposition gains include gains and losses recorded in net income and
    equity in the current period, and are adjusted to include fair value
    changes and revaluation surplus balances recorded in prior periods which
    were not included in prior period FFO. 

Brookfield uses FFO to assess its operating results and the value of its business and believes that many of its shareholders and analysts also find this measure of value to them.

FFO and its per share equivalent are non-IFRS measures which do not have any standard meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

The company provides additional information on the determination of funds from operations and a reconciliation between funds from operations and net income attributable to Brookfield shareholders, in the Supplemental Information available at www.brookfield.com.
