Onex Reports Full-Year 2013 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/21/14 --

All amounts in U.S. dollars unless otherwise stated

Onex Corporation ("Onex") (TSX:OCX) today announced its consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013 and an update on matters following year-end.

Highlights


--  In June, Onex Partners III acquired the largest operator of tradeshows
    in the United States, Emerald Expositions ("Emerald"), in a transaction
    valued at $950 million. In January 2014, Emerald acquired George Little
    Management, LLC, adding more than 20 leading tradeshows, including the
    largest show in the New York metropolitan area. The total equity
    investment for both transactions was $490 million, of which Onex' share
    was $119 million. 
    
--  Distributions during 2013 from our private equity funds, Onex Partners
    and ONCAP, totalled $2.9 billion - the second highest year in Onex'
    history. Onex' share of distributions was $1.1 billion, including $75
    million of carried interest. Realizations included the recapitalization
    of Carestream Health, the sale of shares of Allison Transmission in
    secondary offerings, and the sales of RSI Home Products, TMS
    International, BSN SPORTS and Caliber Collision Centers ("Caliber"). The
    sale of Caliber is particularly noteworthy as ONCAP II generated returns
    of 7.5 times the capital invested. 
    
--  Onex Partners and ONCAP operating companies collectively raised or
    refinanced a total of $8.9 billion of debt, and paid down debt totalling
    approximately $1.1 billion in 2013.  
    
--  Including realizations and distributions, Onex Partners' and ONCAP's
    private companies generated returns for Onex of 34% during 2013.
    Including our public companies, the value of all operating businesses in
    the Onex Partners and ONCAP Funds, including realizations and
    distributions, increased by 35% during 2013.  
    
--  Including its year-end cash and near-cash equivalents balance of $1.7
    billion, Onex' proprietary capital grew last year to $5.8 billion,
    representing a 23% increase on a per-share basis to $50.93 (C$54.16). 
    
--  Onex Credit Partners completed two collateralized loan obligation
    ("CLO") offerings, raising more than $1.0 billion, including $64 million
    from Onex, and has established a warehouse facility for a fifth CLO. 
    
--  In 2013, Onex launched the fundraising for Onex Partners IV, and to date
    has raised a total of $3.7 billion in aggregate commitments towards its
    $4.5 billion target, including Onex' $1.2 billion commitment. 

Building our Businesses

"We had some very gratifying realizations in 2013," said Gerald W. Schwartz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Onex. "In particular, investors recognized the great job done at Carestream Health in growing its digital imaging business and maintaining tight control throughout. As well, Caliber's aggressive acquisition and integration strategy really paid off for investors. Looking forward, with $1.7 billion in cash and near-cash equivalents and $3.4 billion in committed, undrawn capital, we will be aggressively looking for more businesses to buy and build in 2014."

By transforming good businesses into industry leaders, Onex has generated a 29-year gross IRR of 28% and a multiple of 3.0 times invested capital from realized, substantially realized and publicly traded investments.

In addition to the firm's commitment to every business, the Onex management team continues to be heavily invested in everything Onex owns. At December 31, 2013, the value of the team's investment in our businesses and Onex shares was approximately $1.7 billion.

Managing and Growing Other Investors' Capital

Onex earns recurring management fees and/or carried interest on $12.0 billion of capital managed for limited partners and other investors. In 2013, combined management fees and carried interest received offset ongoing operating expenses.

Onex officially launched fundraising of Onex Partners IV in 2013, targeting a fund size of $4.5 billion in total capital commitments. To date, Onex has raised $3.7 billion in aggregate commitments, including Onex' $1.2 billion commitment, and expects to complete fundraising in 2014. This new fund will contribute to Onex' stream of annual management fees and the potential to earn carried interest on invested limited partner capital. Onex' limited partnership agreements typically have a 10-year term and provide predictable management fees from assets under management. Although fees for Onex Partners III decreased to 1% of invested capital effective December 2013, the end of its original five-year commitment period, we expect to start drawing management fees for Onex Partners IV sometime in 2014.

At December 31, 2013, the value of Onex' unrealized carried interest was approximately $54 million based on the traded market values of Onex Partners' public companies and a further $148 million based on the year-end valuations of the private businesses. These year-end values reflect a $137 million increase in the value of Onex' carried interest including the impact of $75 million of realized carried interest received during the year. The amount of carried interest ultimately realized by Onex depends on the overall performance of each Fund.

We continue to see growth in Onex Credit Partners. During 2013, two CLO offerings totalling more than $1.0 billion closed, bringing Onex Credit Partners' year-end assets under management to $3.3 billion - a 44% increase over the prior year. As this investing platform continues to grow, so too will the recurring management fees, creating additional value for Onex shareholders.

Creating Value for Shareholders

Onex' long-term goal is to grow its capital per share on average by at least 15% per annum. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, Onex' proprietary capital per share grew by 23% to $50.93 (C$54.16).

Our goal is to have the value of Onex' shares reflect both the growth in the value of our assets and the intrinsic value of our asset management capabilities. At December 31, 2013, Onex' Subordinate Voting Shares ("SVS") closed at C$57.35, a 37% increase from December 31, 2012. This compares to a 30% increase in the S&P 500 and a 10% increase in the S&P/TSX Composite Index.

The Company paid a fourth-quarter dividend of C$0.0375 per SVS on January 31, 2014 to shareholders of record on January 10, 2014.

In 2013, Onex repurchased 3,060,400 SVS for a total cost of $153 million or an average cost per share of C$51.81. In January 2014, Onex repurchased 397,200 SVS for a total cost of $21 million or an average cost per share of C$57.01. Over the last 17 years, Onex has repurchased more than 80 million SVS for a total cost of approximately C$1.4 billion.

Consolidated Results

Onex' quarterly and full-year consolidated financial results do not follow any specific trends due to acquisitions and dispositions of businesses, changes in the value of its publicly traded and privately held operating companies and varying business cycles at its operating companies.

On a consolidated basis for the fourth quarter, revenues increased 10% to $7.0 billion compared to the same period of the prior year. Onex reported a consolidated net loss of $223 million compared to a loss of $83 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

On a consolidated basis for the full year ended December 31, 2013, revenues increased 12% to $27.8 billion consistent with the change in the quarter. The net loss for the year was $813 million compared to net earnings of $16 million for the year prior. This change was primarily driven by a greater increase in the fair value of the limited partners' interest in our operating businesses that is recorded as a liability, which resulted in approximately $750 million in increased charges to Onex' consolidated net earnings. In addition, the aerostructures segment reported a loss primarily as a result of forward-loss charges on long-term contracts.

Attached are the Consolidated Balance Sheets, Statements of Earnings, Statements of Cash Flows and information by industry segment for the full year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 as prepared under International Financial Reporting Standards. The complete financial statements, including Management's Discussion and Analysis of the results, are posted on Onex' website, www.onex.com, and are also available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

     million). RSI, which was sold in February 2013, was included in private
     companies of Onex Partners at December 31, 2012.                       
(2)  Based on the closing market values and net of the estimated MIP        
     liability on these investments. TMS International, which was sold in   
     October 2013, was included in public companies of Onex Partners at     
     December 31, 2012.

     statements net of management incentive programs on these investments of
     $17 million (2012 - $25 million) and a US$/C$ exchange rate of 1.0636  
     (2012 - 0.9949). BSN SPORTS, which was sold in June 2013, and Caliber  
     Collision, which was sold in November 2013, were included in ONCAP at  
     December 31, 2012.                                                     
(5)  Based on the fair value.                                               
(6)  Based on the fair value of Onex Real Estate Partners' investments.     
(7)  Based on the market values of investments in Onex Credit Partners'     
     Funds and Onex Credit Partners Collateralized Loan Obligations,

     (2012 - $328 million) invested in a segregated Onex Credit Partners'   
     unleveraged senior secured loan strategy fund, which is included with  
     cash and near-cash items.                                              
(8)  Includes $343 million (2012 - $328 million) invested in a segregated   
     Onex Credit Partners' unleveraged senior secured loan strategy fund.   
(9)  Calculated on a fully diluted basis. Fully diluted shares were         
     approximately 115.9 million at December 31, 2013 (December 31, 2012 -  
     126.1 million). Fully diluted shares include (i) all outstanding       
     Subordinate Voting Shares; and (ii) outstanding Stock Options that have
     met the minimum 25% price appreciation threshold.                      
(10) The change in Onex Capital per Share during the year is driven         
     primarily by fair value changes of Onex' investments. Share repurchases
     and options exercised during the year will have an impact on the       
     calculation of Onex Capital per Share. The impact on Onex Capital per  
     Share will be to the extent that the price for share repurchases and   
     option exercises is above or below the Onex Capital per Share.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
