__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
NEW YORK, February 8, 2021 - KKR & Co. Inc. (NYSE: KKR) today reported its fourth quarter 2020 results.

GAAP Net Income (Loss) Attributable to KKR & Co. Inc. Common Stockholders(1) was $1,479.7 million and $1,946.0 million, respectively, for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Distributable operating earnings was up 18% and 11% for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to the equivalent periods in 2019.
Assets Under Management and Fee Paying Assets Under Management were $252 billion and $186 billion, up 15% and 16%, respectively, year-over-year, driven in part by record fundraising in 2020.  Uncalled commitments were $67 billion, up 18% year-over-year, of which $20 billion will contribute to Fee Paying Assets Under Management when that capital is either invested or enters its investment period.
Capital Invested and Syndicated Capital totaled $12.5 billion and $34.5 billion in the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020, respectively.
Book Value was $20 billion or $23.09 per adjusted share as of December 31, 2020.

___________________________

“We ended 2020 with a strong fourth quarter. We are enormously proud of the dedication of our employees and the results delivered on behalf of our fund investors and shareholders over the course of the year. In addition to strong investment performance and continued Book Value growth, we had the most active fundraising and deployment year in our history,” said Henry R. Kravis and George R. Roberts, Co-Chairmen and Co-Chief Executive Officers of KKR. “The strength of our fundamentals, coupled with the completion of our acquisition of Global Atlantic, positions us well for future growth.”


Note: KKR discloses in this earnings release certain financial measures, including after-tax distributable earnings, distributable revenues, distributable expenses, book value, book assets, and book liabilities, that are not calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“non-GAAP”). Such non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in Exhibit A.

(1)Represents only that portion of the business held by KKR & Co. Inc. and does not include the economic interests that are held by KKR Holdings L.P. Our non-GAAP financial results are presented prior to giving effect to the allocation of ownership interests between KKR & Co. Inc. and KKR Holdings L.P. and as such represents the business in total.



GAAP RESULTS
Net Income (Loss) Attributable to KKR & Co. Inc. Common Stockholders was $1,479.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared to $515.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. Net Income (Loss) Attributable to KKR & Co. Inc. Common Stockholders was $1,946.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $1,971.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019.
Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 were $2,005.2 million compared to $1,063.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily driven by (i) a higher level of carried interest and (ii) an increase in transaction fees and management fees. Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020 were $4,230.9 million compared to $4,220.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily driven by higher level of management fees and transaction fees, partially offset by a lower level of carried interest in the current period.
Expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 were $1,179.1 million compared to $751.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily driven by higher accrued carried interest compensation. Expenses for the year ended December 31, 2020 were $2,933.1 million compared to $2,908.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily due to a higher level of compensation expense, partially offset by a decrease in general, administrative and other expense.
Total investment income (loss) for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was $3,998.1 million compared to $1,145.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. Total investment income (loss) for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $4,428.9 million compared to $3,855.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The increase in both periods is primarily due to investment portfolio appreciation.
KKR & Co. Inc. Stockholders’ Equity - Common Stockholders per Outstanding Share of common stock was $21.15 as of December 31, 2020, up from $18.44 as of December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to the net income that is attributable to KKR & Co. Inc. common stockholders during 2020, partially offset by dividends to common stockholders.

NON-GAAP RESULTS
AFTER-TAX DISTRIBUTABLE EARNINGS
After-tax distributable earnings were $431.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, compared with $375.1 million in the comparable prior period. After-tax distributable earnings were $1,522.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared with $1,405.3 million in the comparable prior period.
After-tax distributable earnings increased in the quarterly period primarily due to increases in transaction fees and management fees, partially offset by a decrease in realized investment income and a higher level of compensation expense. The increase in the year ended December 31, 2020 is primarily attributable to increases in management fees and realized performance income, partially offset by a higher level of compensation expense and a decrease in realized investment income. Management fees were $393.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 and $1,417.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared with $317.1 million and $1,227.2 million in the comparable prior periods. The increase in management fees for both periods reflects an overall higher level of FPAUM in each of the Private Markets and Public Markets business lines.
BOOK VALUE PER ADJUSTED SHARE
Book value per adjusted share was $23.09 as of December 31, 2020, up 20%, compared with $19.24 as of December 31, 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to net appreciation in the value of our investment portfolio and after-tax distributable earnings for the year ended December 31, 2020 net of dividends to our shareholders. For the year ended December 31, 2020, KKR's private equity portfolio appreciated 17%.
___________________________
OPERATING METRICS
ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENT
AUM was $251.7 billion as of December 31, 2020 compared to $233.8 billion as of September 30, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to (i) new capital raised primarily in our real assets, growth equity and leveraged credit strategies and (ii) appreciation in the value of our Private Markets and Public Markets portfolios. The increases were partially offset by distributions to limited partners in our private equity and private credit portfolios and redemptions in funds managed by our strategic partners.
FEE PAYING ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENT
FPAUM was $186.2 billion as of December 31, 2020 compared to $177.3 billion as of September 30, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to new capital raised in our real assets, private equity, leveraged credit and private credit strategies, partially offset by distributions to limited partners in our private equity portfolio, distributions across various Public Markets strategies and redemptions in funds managed by our strategic partners.

The declaration and payment of any future dividends on preferred or common stock will be subject to the discretion of the board of directors of KKR & Co. Inc. based on a number of factors, including KKR’s future financial performance and other considerations that the board deems relevant, the terms of KKR & Co. Inc.'s certificate of incorporation and applicable law. There can be no assurance that future dividends will be made as intended or at all or that any particular dividend policy for common stock will be maintained.
Based on preliminary financial results of Global Atlantic as of December 31, 2020, the estimated value of the Global Atlantic assets to be managed by KKR as of the closing of the Global Atlantic acquisition is approximately $90 billion.

In total, as can be seen in the table below, KKR has used approximately $1.4 billion to either repurchase shares or retire equity awards since the inception of KKR’s share repurchase plan on October 27, 2015 through February 5, 2021.

INFORMATION ON NON-GAAP AND OTHER MEASURES & DEFINITIONS (UNAUDITED)

KKR operates through one operating and reportable segment. Management makes operating decisions and assesses performance of our business prior to giving effect to the (i) allocation of income (loss) between KKR & Co. Inc. and KKR Holdings L.P.; (ii) consolidation of the investment funds and collateralized financing entities that KKR manages; and (iii) other consolidated entities that are not subsidiaries of KKR & Co. Inc.
KKR discloses the following financial measures in this earnings release that are calculated and presented using methodologies other than in accordance with GAAP: after-tax distributable earnings, after-tax distributable earnings per adjusted share, book value, book value per adjusted share, book assets, book liabilities, distributable revenues, distributable expenses and fee related earnings. We believe that providing these performance measures on a supplemental basis to our GAAP results is helpful to stockholders in assessing the overall performance of KKR’s businesses. These financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for similar financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, if available. In addition, we caution readers that these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the calculations of other investment managers, and as a result, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other investment managers. These non-GAAP measures are presented in this earnings release as KKR’s operating results, which were previously referred to as segment results. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, where applicable, are included in Exhibit A.
Adjusted shares represents shares of common stock of KKR & Co. Inc. outstanding under GAAP adjusted to include shares issuable upon exchange of all units of KKR Holdings L.P. and the number of assumed shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of our Series C Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock. We believe providing adjusted shares is useful to stockholders as it provides insight into the calculation of amounts available for distribution as dividends on a per adjusted share basis assuming all units of KKR Holdings L.P. and all shares of Series C Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock are exchanged and converted, respectively, to shares of common stock. Weighted average adjusted shares is used in the calculation of after-tax distributable earnings per adjusted share and adjusted shares is used in the calculation of book value per adjusted share.

After-tax distributable earnings is a non-GAAP performance measure of KKR’s earnings excluding mark-to-market gains (losses) after interest expense, Series A and B preferred dividends, noncontrolling interests and income taxes paid. It is used by management to assess the net realized earnings of KKR for a given reporting period, after deducting equity-based compensation under the Equity Incentive Plans and adjusting to exclude the impact of strategic corporate transaction-related charges and non-recurring items, if any. KKR believes that after-tax distributable earnings is useful to stockholders as it aligns KKR’s net realization performance with the manner in which KKR receives its revenues and determines the compensation of its employees. Series C Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock dividends have been excluded from after-tax distributable earnings because the definition of adjusted shares used to calculate after-tax distributable earnings per adjusted share assumes that all shares of Series C Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock have been converted to shares of common stock. After-tax distributable earnings does not represent and is not used to calculate actual dividends under KKR’s dividend policy. Equity-based compensation expense is included in after-tax distributable earnings as a component of compensation expense in order to reflect the dilutive nature of these non-cash equity-based awards. Income taxes paid represents the implied amount of income taxes that would be paid assuming that all pre-tax distributable earnings were allocated to KKR & Co. Inc. and taxed at the same effective rate, which would occur following an exchange of all KKR Holdings units for common stock of KKR & Co. Inc. Income taxes paid also includes amounts paid pursuant to the tax receivable agreement.
Assets under management ("AUM") represent the assets managed or advised by KKR from which KKR is entitled to receive fees or a carried interest (either currently or upon deployment of capital), general partner capital, and assets managed or advised by our strategic BDC partnership and the hedge fund and other managers in which KKR holds an ownership interest. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into the capital raising activities of KKR and its hedge fund and other managers and the overall activity in their investment funds and other managed capital. KKR calculates the amount of AUM as of any date as the sum of: (i) the fair value of the investments of KKR's investment funds; (ii) uncalled capital commitments from these funds, including uncalled capital commitments from which KKR is currently not earning management fees or carried interest; (iii) the fair value of investments in KKR's co-investment vehicles; (iv) the par value of outstanding CLOs (excluding CLOs wholly-owned by KKR); (v) KKR's pro rata portion of the AUM of hedge fund and other managers in which KKR holds an ownership interest; (vi) all AUM of the strategic BDC partnership with FS Investments; and (vii) the fair value of other assets managed by KKR. The pro rata portion of the AUM of hedge fund and other managers is calculated based on KKR’s percentage ownership interest in such entities multiplied by such entity’s respective AUM. KKR's definition of AUM is not based on any definition of AUM that may be set forth in the agreements governing the investment funds, vehicles or accounts that it manages or calculated pursuant to any regulatory definitions.
Book assets is a non-GAAP performance measure that represents cash and short-term investments, investments, net unrealized carried interest, tax assets, and other assets of KKR presented on a basis that deconsolidates (i) KKR's investment funds and collateralized financing entities that KKR manages and (ii) other consolidated entities that are not subsidiaries of KKR & Co. Inc. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into the assets of KKR that are used to operate its business lines. As used in this definition, cash and short-term investments represent cash and liquid short-term investments in high-grade, short-duration cash management strategies used by KKR to generate additional yield.

Book liabilities is a non-GAAP performance measure that represents the debt obligations of KKR (including KFN), tax liabilities, and other liabilities of KKR presented on a basis that deconsolidates (i) KKR's investment funds and collateralized financing entities that KKR manages and (ii) other consolidated entities that are not subsidiaries of KKR & Co. Inc. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into the liabilities of KKR excluding the liabilities that are allocated to noncontrolling interest holders and to the holders of the Series A and Series B Preferred Stock.

Page 14


Book value is a non-GAAP performance measure of the net assets of KKR and is used by management primarily in assessing the unrealized value of KKR’s book assets after deducting for book liabilities, noncontrolling interests and Series A and B Preferred Stock. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into the net assets of KKR excluding those net assets that are allocated to noncontrolling interest holders and to the holders of the Series A and B Preferred Stock. KKR's book value includes the net impact of KKR's tax assets and liabilities as prepared under GAAP. Series C Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock has been included in book value, because the definition of adjusted shares used to calculate book value per adjusted share assumes that all shares of Series C Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock have been converted to shares of common stock.
Capital invested is the aggregate amount of capital invested by (i) KKR’s investment funds, (ii) KKR's Principal Activities business line as a co-investment, if any, alongside KKR’s investment funds, and (iii) KKR's Principal Activities business line in connection with a syndication transaction conducted by KKR's Capital Markets business line, if any. Capital invested is used as a measure of investment activity at KKR during a given period. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides a measure of capital deployment across KKR’s business lines. Capital invested includes investments made using investment financing arrangements like credit facilities, as applicable.  Capital invested excludes (i) investments in certain leveraged credit strategies, (ii) capital invested by KKR’s Principal Activities business line that is not a co-investment alongside KKR’s investment funds, and (iii) capital invested by KKR’s Principal Activities business line that is not invested in connection with a syndication transaction by KKR’s Capital Markets business line. Capital syndicated by KKR's Capital Markets business line to third parties other than KKR’s investment funds or Principal Activities business line is not included in capital invested.  See also syndicated capital.
Distributable revenues is a non-GAAP performance measure that represents the realized revenues (which excludes unrealized carried interest and unrealized net gains (losses)) generated by KKR and is the sum of (i) fees and other, net, (ii) realized performance income (loss) and (iii) realized investment income (loss). KKR believes that distributable revenues is useful to stockholders as it provides insight into the realized revenue generated by KKR's business lines.
Distributable expenses is a non-GAAP performance measure that represents the expenses of KKR and is the sum of (i) compensation and benefits (excluding unrealized performance income compensation), (ii) occupancy and related charges and (iii) other operating expenses. KKR believes that distributable expenses is useful to stockholders as it provides insight into the costs expended in connection with generating KKR's distributable revenues.
Distributable operating earnings is a non-GAAP performance measure that represents after-tax distributable earnings before interest expense, preferred dividends, income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests and income taxes paid. We believe distributable operating earnings is useful to stockholders as it provides a supplemental measure of our operating performance without taking into account items that we do not believe relate directly to KKR's operations.
Fee paying AUM ("FPAUM") represents only the AUM from which KKR is entitled to receive management fees. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into the capital base upon which KKR earns management fees. FPAUM is the sum of all of the individual fee bases that are used to calculate KKR's and its hedge fund and BDC partnership management fees and differs from AUM in the following respects: (i) assets and commitments from which KKR is not entitled to receive a management fee are excluded (e.g., assets and commitments with respect to which it is entitled to receive only carried interest or is otherwise not currently entitled to receive a management fee) and (ii) certain assets, primarily in its private equity funds, are reflected based on capital commitments and invested capital as opposed to fair value because fees are not impacted by changes in the fair value of underlying investments.
Fee related earnings is a non-GAAP supplemental performance measure of earnings of KKR before performance income and investment income. KKR believes this measure may be useful to stockholders as it may provide additional insight into the profitability of KKR’s fee generating management companies and capital markets businesses. Fee related earnings is calculated as KKR’s total Fees and Other, Net, multiplied by KKR’s distributable operating margin. For purposes of the fee related earnings calculation, distributable operating margin is calculated as distributable operating earnings, before equity-based compensation, divided by total distributable revenues.
Syndicated capital is the aggregate amount of capital in transactions originated by KKR and its investment funds and carry-yielding co-investment vehicles, which has been distributed to third parties, generally in exchange for a fee. It does not include (i) capital invested in such transactions by KKR investment funds and carry-yielding co-investment vehicles, which is instead reported in capital invested, (ii) debt capital that is arranged as part of the acquisition financing of transactions originated by KKR investment funds, and (iii) debt capital that is either underwritten or arranged on a best efforts basis. Syndicated capital is used as a measure of investment activity for KKR during a given period, and we believe that this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into levels of syndication activity in KKR's Capital Markets business line and across KKR's investment platform.
Uncalled commitments is the aggregate amount of unfunded capital commitments that KKR’s investment funds and carry-paying co-investment vehicles have received from partners to contribute capital to fund future investments. We believe this measure is useful to stockholders as it provides additional insight into the amount of capital that is available to KKR’s investment funds to make future investments. Uncalled commitments are not reduced for investments completed using fund-level investment financing arrangements.

(1)Represents transaction costs related to the acquisition of Global Atlantic.
(2)Core interest expense may be used by certain debt investors as an alternative measurement of interest expense incurred by KKR and excludes interest expense related to debt obligations from investment financing arrangements related to certain of KKR’s investment funds, investment vehicles and principal investments and also excludes interest expense incurred by KFN. The financing arrangements excluded from core interest expense are not direct obligations of the general partners of KKR’s private equity funds or its management companies, and in the case of debt obligations of KFN, are non-recourse to KKR beyond the assets of KFN. KKR believes this measure is useful to debt investors as it provides an indication of the amount of interest expense borne by KKR excluding interest expense that is allocated to KKR’s investment funds, other noncontrolling interest holders and KFN. Additionally, we believe this measure is useful for analyzing KKR’s ability to service its debt obligations other than the debt obligations of KFN.
(3)Adjusted EBITDA may be useful to debt investors in evaluating KKR's ability to service its debt and provides insight into the amount of KKR’s distributable earnings before the impact of interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, preferred dividends and noncontrolling interests.
