JLL Reports Financial Results for First-Quarter 2023

Resilient performance by annuity-based businesses outpaced by continued market-wide pullback in transactional revenues

CHICAGO, May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (NYSE: JLL) today reported operating performance for first-quarter 2023 with diluted loss per share of $0.19 and adjusted diluted earnings per share1 of $0.65.

  • First-quarter revenue was $4.7 billion, up 1% in local currency, and fee revenue1 was $1.6 billion, down 15% in local currency
    • Market-wide transaction slowdown continued to impact Capital Markets activity, which was down against a robust prior year
    • Muted Leasing activity across asset classes and most geographies drove the Markets Advisory decline
    • Strong demand continued for Project Management, driving double-digit growth in Work Dynamics
  • Margin contraction was primarily driven by the decline in transaction-based revenue
  • Run-rate fixed expense growth over the past few quarters was partially offset by ongoing cost reduction actions

“Our first quarter financial results were in line with the expectations we had at the beginning of the year. Strong fee revenue growth in our resilient business lines was offset by the continuation of the industry-wide slowdown in investment sales and leasing volumes,” said Christian Ulbrich, JLL CEO. “JLL’s diversified global platform and leadership position in both U.S. debt origination and equity placement put us in a unique situation to help our clients navigate the current operating environment. The investments we have made in our business over the past several years and the steps we have taken to reduce our operating costs position us to gain market share and drive long-term stakeholder value.”

Revenue

Revenue increased 1% and fee revenue decreased 15% compared with 2022. Economic headwinds and continued interest rate uncertainty continued to adversely impact most of the transaction-based businesses, notably Investment Sales and Debt/Equity Advisory within Capital Markets as well as Leasing within Markets Advisory. However, continued demand in Project Management, within Work Dynamics, drove its fee revenue growth of 24%. Annuity-based businesses continued to demonstrate resilience while delivering fee revenue growth for the quarter, as JLL Technologies grew 29%; Property Management, within Markets Advisory, grew 12%; LaSalle advisory fees grew 9%; and Workplace Management, within Work Dynamics, grew 3%.

Refer to segment performance highlights for additional detail.

The following charts reflect the segment proportion of revenue and fee revenue for the current and prior-year quarters.

Net (loss) income, Adjusted EBITDA and Margin Performance

Net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders for the first quarter was a loss of $9.2 million, compared with income of $145.6 million in 2022, and Adjusted EBITDA was $109.0 million, compared with $273.6 million last year. Interest expense, net of interest income, increased $16.1 million, compared with the prior year, due to an increase in the average outstanding borrowings under our credit facilities in addition to a higher effective interest rate.

Diluted loss per share for the first quarter was $0.19, down from diluted earnings per share of $2.86 in 2022; adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.65, compared with $3.47 last year.

The lower adjusted EBITDA margin compared with the prior-year quarter was largely driven by the decline in transaction-based revenue, specifically Leasing, Investment Sales, and Debt/Equity Advisory, as well as the change in equity earnings. In addition, run-rate growth in fixed compensation expense over the past few quarters was partially offset by ongoing cost reduction actions.

Cash Flows and Capital Allocation:

Net cash provided by operating activities was an outflow of $716.3 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared with an outflow of $716.4 million in the prior-year quarter. Free Cash Flow5 was an outflow of $765.6 million this quarter, compared with an outflow of $763.0 million last year. Lower annual incentive compensation and commission payments in 2023, compared with 2022, and incremental cash inflow associated with trade receivables, were offset by (i) a decline in cash provided by earnings (largely driven by the Capital Markets and Markets Advisory change in business performance), (ii) an additional pay period in the current quarter and (iii) incremental cash outflow associated with net reimbursables given continued growth in Workplace Management over the last four quarters.

The declines in Markets Advisory revenue and fee revenue were predominantly driven by Leasing, the result of lower transaction volume across asset types and a decrease in average deal size, particularly in the office sector, across most geographies. The lower Leasing fee revenue was in line with global market volumes as global gross absorption fell 18%, according to JLL Research. The increase in Property Management fee revenue was partially attributable to portfolio expansion in the Americas and also reflected incremental fees from interest-rate sensitive contract terms in the United Kingdom. The decrease in Advisory, Consulting and Other was primarily due to the absence of revenues associated with exiting a business in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The adjusted EBITDA margin contraction was substantially due to the lower Leasing fee revenue described above.

The declines in Capital Markets revenue and fee revenue reflected uncertainty with interest rates and the macroeconomic outlook as transaction volumes fell and the deal-cycle time remained elongated. This was most visible in Investment Sales and Debt/Equity Advisory which had declines across asset classes and geographies compared to the prior-year quarter. This aligned with broader market performance as Q1 global market volumes for investment sales were down 56% in USD (54% in local currency) according to JLL Research. Loan Servicing included continued growth in the portfolio originated under the Fannie Mae DUS program. This growth was overshadowed by a $4.5 million decline in prepayment fees compared to the prior-year quarter, as elevated interest rates continued to dampen refinancing activity.

The adjusted EBITDA margin contraction was predominantly driven by the meaningful decline in fee revenue described above.

Work Dynamics revenue and fee revenue achieved double-digit growth compared with the prior-year quarter, propelled by the increase in Project Management and continued resilience within Workplace Management. Project Management’s growth was attributable to continued project demand in several geographies, most notably the U.S., France and MENA.

The margin contraction was primarily attributable to $9.0 million of Tetris contract losses in Europe as well as incremental investments in sustainability and technology products. These margin dilutive impacts were partially offset by the higher revenue described above.

(a) Included in Segment operating loss is carried interest expense of $0.7 million and $6.2 million for the first quarter of 2023 and 2022, respectively, related to the segment’s equity earnings.

The increases in JLL Technologies revenue and fee revenue over the prior-year quarter were primarily driven by growth from existing customers, led by solutions and service offerings, especially from large enterprise clients.

Equity earnings in both periods were primarily attributable to net valuation increases of JLL Technologies’ investments, largely reflecting subsequent financing rounds at increased per-share values.

Fee revenue growth with greater operating efficiencies drove the margin improvement, which was tempered by lower equity earnings, net of carried interest.

LaSalle advisory fee growth was concentrated in core open-end funds, primarily in North America and Asia Pacific. This growth was offset by lower transaction fees attributable to muted deal activity, consistent with global trends in transaction volumes.

The current quarter’s equity losses were primarily attributable to valuation declines in the co-investment portfolio. In addition, the co-investment in a LaSalle-managed publicly-traded REIT in Japan experienced a lower negative share price movement compared with the prior-year quarter.

The adjusted EBITDA margin contraction was largely attributable to higher equity losses as additional advisory fee platform scale was offset by lower transaction fees.

JONES LANG LASALLE INCORPORATED
Financial Statement Notes

1.   Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to develop budgets and forecasts, measure and reward performance against those budgets and forecasts, and enhance comparability to prior periods. These measures are believed to be useful to investors and other external stakeholders as supplemental measures of core operating performance and include the following:

(i)     Fee revenue and Fee-based operating expenses,

(ii)     Adjusted EBITDA attributable to common shareholders (“Adjusted EBITDA”) and Adjusted EBITDA margin,

(iii)     Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders and Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share,

(iv)     Percentage changes against prior periods, presented on a local currency basis, and

(v)     Free Cash Flow.

However, non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered alternatives to measures determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Any measure that eliminates components of a company’s capital structure, cost of operations or investments, or other results has limitations as a performance measure. In light of these limitations, management also considers GAAP financial measures and does not rely solely on non-GAAP financial measures. Because the company’s non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjustments to GAAP Financial Measures Used to Calculate non-GAAP Financial Measures

Gross Contract Costs represent certain costs associated with client-dedicated employees and third-party vendors and subcontractors and are directly or indirectly reimbursed through the fees we receive. These costs are presented on a gross basis in Operating expenses with the equal amount of corresponding fees in Revenue. Excluding gross contract costs from both Fee revenue and Fee-based operating expenses more accurately reflects how the company manages its expense base and operating margins and also enables a more consistent performance assessment across a portfolio of contracts with varying payment terms and structures.

Net Non-Cash Mortgage Servicing Rights (“MSR”) and Mortgage Banking Derivative Activity consists of the balances presented within Revenue composed of (i) derivative gains/losses resulting from mortgage banking loan commitment and warehousing activity and (ii) gains recognized from the retention of MSR upon origination and sale of mortgage loans, offset by (iii) amortization of MSR intangible assets over the period that net servicing income is projected to be received. Non-cash derivative gains/losses resulting from mortgage banking loan commitment and warehousing activity are calculated as the estimated fair value of loan commitments and subsequent changes thereof, primarily represented by the estimated net cash flows associated with future servicing rights. MSR gains and corresponding MSR intangible assets are calculated as the present value of estimated cash flows over the estimated mortgage servicing periods. The above activity is reported entirely within Revenue of the Capital Markets segment. Excluding net non-cash MSR and mortgage banking derivative activity reflects how the company manages and evaluates performance because the excluded activity is non-cash in nature.

Restructuring and Acquisition Charges primarily consist of: (i) severance and employment-related charges, including those related to external service providers, incurred in conjunction with a structural business shift, which can be represented by a notable change in headcount, change in leadership or transformation of business processes; (ii) acquisition, transaction and integration-related charges, including fair value adjustments, which are generally non-cash in the periods such adjustments are made, to assets and liabilities recorded in purchase accounting such as earn-out liabilities and intangible assets; and (iii) lease exit charges. Such activity is excluded as the amounts are generally either non-cash in nature or the anticipated benefits from the expenditures would not likely be fully realized until future periods. Restructuring and acquisition charges are excluded from segment operating results and therefore are not line items in the segments’ reconciliation to Adjusted EBITDA.

Amortization of Acquisition-Related Intangibles, primarily composed of the estimated fair value ascribed at closing of an acquisition to assets such as acquired management contracts, customer backlog and relationships, and trade name, is more notable following the company’s increase in acquisition activity in recent years. Such non-cash activity is excluded as the change in period-over-period activity is generally the result of longer-term strategic decisions and therefore not necessarily indicative of core operating results.

Gain or Loss on Disposition reflects the gain or loss recognized on the sale of businesses. Given the low frequency of business disposals by the company historically, the gain or loss directly associated with such activity is excluded as it is not considered indicative of core operating performance.

Interest on Employee Loans, Net of Forgiveness reflects interest accrued on employee loans less the amount of accrued interest forgiven. Certain employees (predominantly in our Leasing and Capital Markets businesses) receive cash payments structured as loans, with interest. Employees earn forgiveness of the loan based on performance, generally calculated as a percentage of revenue production. Such forgiven amounts are reflected in Compensation and benefits expense. Given the interest accrued on these employee loans and subsequent forgiveness are non-cash and the amounts perfectly offset over the life of the loan, the activity is not indicative of core operating performance and is excluded from non-GAAP measures.

Operating Results – Local Currency

In discussing operating results, the company reports Adjusted EBITDA margins and refers to percentage changes in local currency, unless otherwise noted. Amounts presented on a local currency basis are calculated by translating the current period results of foreign operations to U.S. dollars using the foreign currency exchange rates from the comparative period. Management believes this methodology provides a framework for assessing performance and operations excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

The following table reflects the reconciliation to local currency amounts for consolidated (i) revenue, (ii) fee revenue, (iii) operating income and (iv) Adjusted EBITDA.
