Percentage variances in the Consolidated Performance Highlights below are calculated and presented on a local currency basis.

Consolidated Performance Highlights:

  • Record revenue performance for the second quarter with consolidated revenue of $1.6 billion, compared with $1.4 billion last year, and consolidated fee revenue of $1.3 billion, up 15 percent from 2015. Strong Real Estate Services revenue growth was led by Property & Facility Management, up $37 million or 17 percent, Project & Development Services, up $34 million or 30 percent, and Leasing, up $35 million or 10 percent. Capital Markets & Hotels revenue growth held flat year over year, and performed well against a decline in global market volumes.

  • LaSalle generated robust performance, driven by continued expansion of annuity-based advisory fees and enhanced by $52 million of incentive fees earned on real estate dispositions. LaSalle's performance is also reflected in equity earnings, primarily from gains recognized on dispositions of legacy investments together with net valuation increases across our co-investment portfolio.

  • Consolidated operating expenses for the second quarter were $1.5 billion compared with $1.3 billion last year. Consolidated fee-based operating expenses, excluding restructuring and acquisition charges, were $1.2 billion for the second quarter, compared with $1.1 billion last year, an increase of 15 percent, primarily driven by increases in headcount from acquisitions, expansion of annuity businesses, and increases in variable compensation and commissions associated with incentive fees and leasing performance.

  • Net income attributable to common shareholders for the quarter was $79 million, compared with $90 million last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $160 million, compared with $156 million last year, reflecting strong revenue growth balanced with a change in overall business mix and investments in technology, data and people. Comparability was impacted by $26 million of equity earnings recognized last year from the sale of legacy real estate assets against current quarter comparable activity of $6 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin calculated on a fee-revenue basis was 11.6 percent for the quarter, compared with 13.2 percent last year.

  • Earnings per share for the quarter were $1.73, compared with $1.98 per share last year. Adjusted earnings per share were $1.93, compared with $2.05 per share last year and $1.68 in 2014.

Balance Sheet and Net Interest Expense:

  • In June, in advance of the Brexit vote, we increased and extended our bank credit facility in partnership with top tier banks. The capacity of the facility increased to $2.75 billion from $2.0 billion and the maturity extended to June 2021 with improved pricing.

  • JLL's credit rating was reaffirmed at BBB+ (Stable) by Standard & Poor's in July.

  • Total net debt was $1.0 billion at quarter end, an increase of $30 million from the first quarter 2016 and $480 million from the second quarter last year, reflecting the pace of acquisitions and investments.

  • Net interest expense for the quarter was $10.9 million, up from $7.6 million in 2015, primarily due to higher average borrowings compared with last year.

Financial Statement Notes

1. Consistent with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), gross contract vendor and subcontractor costs ("gross contract costs") which are managed on certain client assignments in the Property & Facility Management and Project & Development Services business lines are presented on a gross basis in both revenue and operating expenses. Gross contract costs are excluded from revenue and operating expenses in determining "fee revenue" and "fee-based operating expenses," respectively. Excluding these costs from revenue and operating expenses more accurately reflects how the company manages its expense base and its operating margins.

Adjusted operating income excludes the impact of restructuring and acquisition charges, mortgage servicing rights (MSRs) - net non-cash activity, and amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, which we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing performance.

MSRs - net non-cash activity consists of the balances presented within Revenue comprised of (a) the gains recognized by the company in conjunction with the origination and sale of mortgage loans, offset by (b) the amortization of the corresponding MSR intangible assets generated upon the aforementioned gain recognition over the period that net servicing income is projected to be received. Such gains and the corresponding MSR intangible assets are calculated as the present value of estimated cash inflows and outflows over the estimated mortgage servicing periods. This activity is more notable following the company's acquisition of Oak Grove Capital during the fourth quarter of 2015.

Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, primarily comprised of the estimated fair value ascribed at closing of an acquisition to acquired management contracts and customer backlog, is more notable following the company's recent increase in acquisition activity.

Although adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP financial measure, it is used extensively by management in budgeting, managing and assessing business performance net of the impact of capital expenditures reflected through depreciation expense, but excluding the results of our co-investments in real estate ventures accounted for under the equity method, and believed to be useful to investors for evaluating performance. However, adjusted operating income should not be considered as an alternative to operating income determined in accordance with GAAP. Because adjusted operating income is not calculated under GAAP, the company's adjusted operating income may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

To conform to 2016 presentation, 2015 amounts were recast for adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter and year-to-date to reflect the adjustments associated with MSRs - net non-cash activity and amortization of acquisition-related intangibles. However, no adjustment to revenue amounts presented throughout has been made to exclude MSRs - net non-cash activity.

2. Net restructuring and acquisition charges, MSRs - net non-cash activity, and amortization of acquisition-related intangibles are excluded from GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders to arrive at adjusted net income used in the calculation of adjusted diluted earnings per share.

Although adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures, they are used extensively by management in budgeting, managing and assessing business performance and believed to be useful to investors for evaluating performance. However, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share should not be considered as alternatives to net income and diluted earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP. Because adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are not calculated under GAAP, the company's adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Below are reconciliations of GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders to adjusted net income and calculations of earnings per share for each net income total:

Adjusted diluted earnings per share $ 1.93 $ 2.05 $ 2.75 $ 3.02

Calculated on a local currency basis, the results for the three and six months ended 2016 include a $0.05 and $0.10 favorable impact, respectively, due to foreign exchange rate fluctuations as compared to a $0.15 and $0.22 unfavorable impact for the three and six months ended 2015.

3. Adjusted EBITDA attributable to common shareholders ("Adjusted EBITDA") represents GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders before interest expense net of interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, further adjusted for certain items we do not consider indicative of our ongoing performance, including restructuring and acquisition charges and MSRs - net non-cash activity.

Although adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, they are used extensively by management and are useful to investors and lenders as metrics for evaluating and comparing our performance from period to period in a meaningful and consistent manner in addition to standard financial measurements under GAAP. EBITDA is used in the calculations of certain covenants related to the company's revolving credit facility. However, adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income determined in accordance with GAAP. Because adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are not calculated under GAAP, the company's adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Below is a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA:

Three Months Ended Six Months Ended
June 30, June 30,
($ in millions) 2016 2015 2016 2015
GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders $ 78.8 $ 90.1 $ 104.5 $ 132.0

MSRs - net non-cash activity (2.7 ) (0.1 ) 0.6 -
Adjusted EBITDA $ 159.8 $ 156.0 $ 244.8 $ 244.4

4. Percentage variances presented on a local currency basis are calculated by translating the current period results of our foreign operations to U.S. dollars using the foreign currency exchange rates from the periods against which our current period results are being compared. Management believes this methodology provides a framework for assessing our performance and operations excluding the effect of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Because percentage variances presented on a local currency basis are not calculated under GAAP, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

5. Restructuring and acquisition charges are excluded from segment operating results, although they are included for consolidated reporting. For purposes of segment operating results, the allocation of restructuring and acquisition charges to the segments has been determined not to be meaningful to investors, so the performance of segment results has been evaluated without allocation of these charges.

6. Each geographic region offers the company's full range of Real Estate Services businesses consisting primarily of tenant representation and agency leasing; capital markets; property management and facilities management; project and development services; and advisory, consulting and valuations services. LaSalle Investment Management provides investment management services to institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals.

7. The consolidated statements of cash flows are presented in summarized form. For complete consolidated statements of cash flows, please refer to the company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the near future.

8. EMEA refers to Europe, Middle East and Africa. MENA refers to Middle East and North Africa. Greater China includes China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Southeast Asia refers to Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The BRIC countries include Brazil, Russia, India and China. Benelux refers to Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

9. Certain prior-year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current presentation. The company adopted ASU 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest (ASU 2015-03), and therefore ASU 2015-15, effective January 1, 2016, as a change in accounting principle. As retrospective application is required, the comparative balance sheet information has been adjusted; debt issuance costs of $18.1 million as of December 31, 2015, have been reclassified from Other assets to Credit facility ($15.4 million) and Long-term senior notes ($2.7 million). The adoption of ASU 2015-03 had no impact on our condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income or cash flows.
