HFF, Inc. (NYSE:HF) announced today the year-end unaudited 2017 transaction volume of HFF, Inc.’s (the “Company’s”) operating partnerships (which consist of Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. and HFF Real Estate Limited (collectively, “HFF”), HFF Securities, L.P. and HFF Securities Limited (collectively, “HFFS”)).

The Company reported record results for its transaction volume, which it estimates at approximately $96 billion on 2,355 transactions across the Company’s debt placement, investment advisory, equity placement and loan sales capital markets platforms. This figure excludes transaction volume relating to HFFS’s advisory and consulting assignments, which are not reported due to the complexity of reporting such volume as disclosed in the Company’s previous filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. HFF’s 2017 annual transaction volume represents a gain of 17.0% over the $82 billion transaction volume closed in 2016. The number of transactions HFF closed in 2017 – approximately 2,355 – represents an increase of 154 transactions or 7.0% from the 2016 figure of 2,201.

HFF’s debt placement volume in 2017 is estimated to be approximately $51.6 billion compared to $40.6 billion in 2016, which represents an approximate 27% increase.

HFF’s combined investment advisory, equity placement, and loan sales volume is estimated to be approximately $44.3 billion compared to $41.4 billion in 2016, which represents an approximate 7.2% increase over 2016.

HFF’s commercial loan servicing portfolio balance is estimated to be approximately $69.8 billion on 3,066 loans serviced as of December 31, 2017, which represents an approximate 20.5% increase from the year-end 2016 portfolio balance of $58.0 billion on 2,807 loans serviced.

The amount of active private equity discretionary fund transactions on which HFFS has been engaged and may recognize additional future revenue was approximately $1.82 billion at year-end 2017, down from the 2016 year-end volume of $2.8 billion.

This press release outlines the Company’s production volume totals, which are calculated from an internal database and have not been audited. Note that these amounts may be adjusted as the Company completes its review and audit of its fourth quarter and year-end results for 2017. No inferences about the Company’s fourth quarter 2017 earnings should be made from this announcement of transaction volume. The Company’s earnings for fourth quarter 2017 are currently scheduled to be publicly released in late February 2018. The Company has elected to release its production volumes at this time in order for HFF and HFFS to participate in several industry surveys which are important to their respective businesses.
