“Building on our portfolio improvements last quarter, we continue to demonstrate increased momentum in our private equity and credit portfolios, resulting in a very good quarter for Onex,” said Gerry Schwartz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Onex. “Earlier this quarter, I was delighted to announce Bobby Le Blanc as President of Onex, in recognition of his leadership ability and the positive role he continues to play in our success.”

  • Onex reported segment net earnings for the nine-months ended September 30, 2020 of $152 million ($1.55 per fully diluted share), comprised of net earnings of $164 million from its investing segment and a net loss of $12 million from its asset and wealth management segment.
  • Onex’ private equity investments generated gross returns of 14% and 9% during the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.
  • Onex’ total shareholder capital per fully diluted share increased by approximately 10% in the third-quarter to $74.04 (C$98.76), primarily driven by net increases in Onex’ private equity and credit investments.
  • In August, Onex Partners sold approximately 32.0 million shares of SIG Combibloc Group (SWX: SIGN) at a price of CHF 15.50 per share. Onex’ share of the net proceeds was $162 million as a Limited Partner in Onex Partners IV and as a co-investor.
  • In August, Onex invested $35 million in Onex Partners V as part of the Fund’s investment in preferred shares of Emerald Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EEX). This attractively valued investment supports a business with a solid collection of assets with an opportunity remaining to improve operations.
  • In September, Onex invested $64 million in Onex Partners V as part of the fund’s investment in Independent Clinical Services Group Ltd.
  • In October, Onex Partners agreed to make a majority investment in OneDigital, a leading U.S. provider of employee benefits insurance brokerage and retirement consulting services. The transaction values OneDigital at $2.65 billion. The new equity investment of approximately $725 million will be made by Onex Partners V, Onex’ share will be approximately $200 million.

Financial Results

For the three-months ended September 30, 2020, total segment net earnings were $515 million ($5.39 per fully diluted share). Investing segment earnings of $492 million ($5.17 per fully diluted share) were primarily driven by net gains on Onex’ private equity and credit investments consistent with the recovery in those markets during the quarter. Third-quarter asset and wealth management segment earnings of $23 million ($0.22 per fully diluted share) were driven by management and advisory fees as well as an increase in unrealized carried interest.

For the nine-months ended September 30, 2020, total segment net earnings were $152 million ($1.55 per fully diluted share). Investing segment earnings of $164 million ($1.67 per fully diluted share) were primarily driven by a net gain on Onex’ private equity investments which reflects the overall resiliency and diversification of the operating businesses that Onex has invested in. The asset and wealth management segment loss for the nine-months ended September 30, 2020 was $12 million ($0.12 per fully diluted share) driven primarily by a net reversal of unrealized carried interest.

Enclosed are supplementary schedules and non-IFRS measures related to Onex’ consolidated net earnings for the three- and nine-months ended September 30, 2020, shareholder capital at September 30, 2020 and cash and near-cash changes for the nine-months ended September 30, 2020.
