(RTTNews) - KKR & Co. Inc. (KKR) reported that its second-quarter net income attributable to common stockholders increased to $698.6 million or $1.24 per share from $514.4 million or $0.93 per share in the previous year.
After-tax distributable earnings per adjusted Share of $0.39 for the second quarter of 2020 are flat compared to the second quarter of 2019. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report earnings of $0.36 per share. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.
Revenues for the quarter rose to $1.33 billion from last year's $1.18 billion, driven by a higher level of carried interest due to the recovery in the financial markets, partially offset by the decrease in transaction fees.
