Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (NYSE:OAK) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02

Results of Operations.

On April 16, 2018, Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing certain changes to its non-GAAP measures. Beginning with the quarter ended March 31, 2018, reported management fees and incentive income will reflect the portion of the net earnings from management fees and performance fees, respectively, attributable to Oaktree’s 20% ownership interest in DoubleLine Capital LP and its affiliates (collectively, “DoubleLine”). Such net earnings were previously reported as investment income.

Additionally, assets under management (“AUM”), management fee-generating AUM, incentive-creating AUM and incentives created (fund level) will reflect Oaktree’s pro-rata portion (based on our 20% ownership stake) of DoubleLine’s total AUM, management fee-generating AUM, incentive-creating AUM and performance fees, respectively.

Finally, the impact of the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”), which resulted in the remeasurement of Oaktree’s deferred tax assets and tax receivable liability in the fourth quarter of 2017, will no longer be included in its non-GAAP measures.

In order to assist investors and analysts in understanding the impact of the changes on first quarter 2018 financial results, which will be released on April 26, the information for full years 2016 and 2017 reflecting (i) the amounts as presented in Oaktree’s fourth quarter 2017 earnings press release, (ii) the adjustments, and (iii) the resulting adjusted amounts for adjusted net income, distributable earnings, fee-related earnings, AUM, management fee-generating AUM, incentive-creating AUM and incentives created (fund level) have been presented in the press release and posted on the unitholder section of Oaktree’s website.

A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1. The information in this Item 2.02 and the attached press release is “furnished” but not “filed” for purposes of Section18 of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).
