“Despite the challenging backdrop, Onex continues to focus on its foundational values of investing in high-quality assets with a long-term perspective and maintaining ample liquidity to take advantage of market cycles,” said Gerry Schwartz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Onex. “Together with a strong culture, deep client relationships and an exceptionally strong balance sheet, we are again positioned to turn market uncertainty into long-term opportunity.”

“As we look to the future, I am delighted to announce our proposal to appoint Bobby Le Blanc as Chief Executive Officer following our next annual meeting of shareholders. Bobby has shown exemplary leadership over his 23 years with Onex and is ideally suited to guide Onex into its next phase of growth while providing for a smooth transition for the organization. The Board and I have complete faith in Bobby and his ability to continue to build value for all our stakeholders.”

Gerry Schwartz will remain closely involved with Onex as its Founder and Chairman. He will also remain the sole holder of Onex’ Multiple Voting Shares (MVS). The proposal is conditional upon an amendment to the MVS to maintain their current voting entitlement following the transition of roles.  A five-year sunset provision will be added to the MVS. The Board has approved the proposal upon the report and positive recommendation of a Special Committee. Shareholder approval of the amendment will be sought at the company’s annual general meeting in 2023.

Highlights

  • Onex’ investing capital per fully diluted share(6) decreased 1% and was largely unchanged in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively. As of September 30, 2022, Onex had approximately $7.6 billion of investing capital, or $90.26 (C$123.71) per fully diluted share. Investing capital per fully diluted share benefited from share buybacks during the quarter. In Canadian dollars, investing capital per fully diluted share increased 5% and 8% over the same periods largely reflecting the appreciation of the U.S. Dollar.   
  • The value of Onex’ private equity investments declined 2%(7) in the quarter (2021: 11% increase), largely reflecting macroeconomic and market factors. The portfolio continued to perform well relative to public market benchmarks such as the S&P 500 and MSCI World indices which produced total returns of negative 5% and negative 6%, respectively, in the third quarter. Onex’ Credit investments gained 1% in the third quarter (2021: 4%).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures and ratios which have been calculated using methodologies that are not in accordance with IFRS. The presentation of financial measures in this manner does not have a standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar financial measures presented by other companies.

(3) Asset management fee-related earnings (loss) excludes Onex’ public company expenses and other expenses associated with managing Onex’ investing capital and is a component of total fee-related earnings (loss).
(4) Total fee-related earnings (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed under International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). Therefore, it may not be comparable to similar financial measures disclosed by other companies. The most directly comparable financial measure under IFRS to fee-related earnings (loss) is Onex’ net earnings (loss). Refer to the 2022 Year-To-Date Results & Activity section of Onex’ Q3 2022 Interim MD&A and the supplementary financial schedules in this press release for further details concerning fee-related earnings (loss).
(5) Distributable earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS. Therefore, it may not be comparable to similar financial measures disclosed by other companies. The most directly comparable financial measure under IFRS to distributable earnings is Onex’ net earnings (loss). Refer to the 2022 Year-To-Date Results & Activity section of Onex’ Q3 2022 Interim MD&A and the supplementary financial schedules in this press release for further details concerning distributable earnings.

The percentage changes in investing capital per share exclude the impact of capital deployed in Onex’ asset management segment, where applicable, and dividends paid by Onex.
(7) The gross return on Onex’ private equity investments is a non-GAAP ratio calculated using methodologies that are not in accordance with IFRS. The presentation of this ratio does not have a standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar financial measures presented by other companies. The net gains (losses) used to calculate the gross return of Onex’ private equity investments are gross of management incentive programs. Refer to page 10 of Onex’ Q3 2022 Interim MD&A for further details concerning the gross performance of Onex’ private equity investments.
(8) Refer to the glossary in Onex’ Q3 2022 Interim MD&A for details concerning the composition of FG AUM and run-rate management fees.
(9) Cash and near-cash is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated using methodologies that are not in accordance with IFRS. The presentation of these measures does not have standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and therefore might not be comparable to similar financial measures presented by other companies. The most directly comparable financial measure under IFRS to cash and near-cash is Onex’ consolidated cash and cash equivalents balance, which was $151 million at September 30, 2022 (December 31, 2021 – $547 million).
