In aggregate, AUM was approximately $2.5 billion as at September 30, 2017 down approximately $83 million from the prior year end. AUM in IAM Private Debt decreased approximately $153 million in fiscal 2017. During the year IAM Private Debt deployed invested capital of approximately $355 million increasing future management fees, as fees are earned on assets deployed. The decrease in IAM Private Debt’s total AUM was the result of distributions to investors of routine principal repayments received on loans in pre-existing private debt funds and early prepayment on a loan. AUM in IAM Real Estate increased approximately $70 million in fiscal 2017; the net increase primarily represents the raising of approximately $41 million in the open fund during 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $2.1 million from $(0.2 million) in fiscal 2016 to $1.9 million in fiscal 2017. A significant portion of this increase resulted from higher management, acquisition and commitment fees.

John Robertson, Chief Executive Officer, said “We are very pleased with the results for 2017 and they are in line with the expectations for the year.  As we have said in the past, we receive management fees on invested capital not committed capital.  Primarily as a result of significant deployment in the Private Debt Group, revenues rose by $2.3 million, a 20% increase; while expenses remained relatively flat.  This resulted in an increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the year of $2.1 million over 2016 Adjusted EBITDA.  With over $600 million in committed capital remaining to be deployed and relatively flat expenses anticipated, we expect similar progress to be achieved in fiscal 2018.  In addition, the open ended real estate fund, IAM Real Property Fund began accepting quarterly subscriptions as of March 31, 2017 and to-date has raised $41 million with further subscriptions in the process of being finalized.  The Debt Group is in the market raising a higher yield fund and is also preparing to launch their sixth corporate debt fund in fiscal 2018.  These initiatives should maintain the committed but uninvested capital at a level in excess of $500 million.  

With the improvement in earnings and the positive outlook for the future, the intention is to distribute a $0.02 quarterly dividend.  This represents a 33% increase in the annual dividend.  The first quarterly dividend will be paid December 20, 2017.”
