Margins should also be similar to last year, executives said on the company’s fourth-quarter conference call.
The comments came after the firm reported earnings that exceeded estimates. Private equity firms are raking in record sums as yield-starved investors seek to bolster returns. Apollo took in $10.5 billion in capital during the period, bringing fundraising for the year to $64 billion, according to a statement Thursday.
Apollo, led by billionaire Leon Black, managed to benefit from asset sales during a period of high valuations. The New York-based company returned $5.5 billion to investors in the quarter, more than double the year-earlier period. The increase was driven in part by the sale of digital infrastructure company Presidio Inc. for $2.2 billion.
