Apollo Global Management, Inc., is a global alternative investment manager firm. It was founded in 1990 by Leon Black, Josh Harris,[4] and Marc Rowan.[5] Apollo is headquartered in New York City, with offices across North America, Europe and Asia.[6] The companys stock is publicly traded on the NYSE under the symbol APO.

The firm specializes in investing across credit, private equity, and real assets.[7][8]

Apollo Global Management reported $414B of assets under management at the end of June 2020. Around 72% of assets are in the credit business ($300.4B as of last quarter close). Around 18% of assets ($73.3B as of last quarter close) are in private equity. The remaining 10% of assets are in real assets ($39.9B as of last quarter close).[9] Around 66% of assets are in the credit business ($209.7B as of last quarter close). Around 21% of assets ($67.7B as of last quarter close) are in private equity. The remaining assets are in real assets ($39.9B as of last quarter close).[9][failed verification]

Among the most notable companies Apollo has an investment in are ADT, CareerBuilder, Cox Media Group, Intrado, Rackspace, Redbox, Shutterfly, Smart & Final, and University of Phoenix.

In March 2021, Apollo Global Management announced plans to merge with Athene Holding, the life insurance company. The merger values Athene at $11 billion. Since it was founded in 2009, Athene has been backed by Apollo.[10] Athene went public in 2016 and had a market capitalization of just over $10 billion. Prior to the merger announcement, Apollo already owned 35% of Athene.[11] The deal is expected to close in January 2022.[12] The combined entity will have a market cap of $29 billion, making it eligible for inclusion in the S&P 500 index.[13]

In March 2021, Apollo announced that Leon Black had stepped down as CEO and chairman after revelations that he paid Jeffrey Epstein $158 million for personal tax-related advice over the period from 2012 to 2017.[14][15] Marc Rowan became CEO after Black stepped down.[16]

History[edit]

Apollo, originally referred to as Apollo Advisors, was founded in 1990, on the heels of the collapse of Drexel Burnham Lambert in February 1990, by Leon Black, the former head of Drexels mergers and acquisitions department, along with other Drexel alumni.[17] Among the most notable founders are John Hannan, Drexels former co-director of international finance; Craig Cogut, a lawyer who worked with Drexels high-yield division in Los Angeles; and Arthur Bilger, the former head of the corporate finance department. Other founding partners included Marc Rowan, Josh Harris, and Michael Gross, who both worked under Black in the mergers and acquisitions department, and Antony Ressler, who worked as a senior vice president in Drexels high yield department with responsibility for the new issue/syndicate desk.[18][19][20]

Less than six months after the collapse of Drexel, the founders of Apollo had already begun a series of ventures. Apollo Investment Fund L.P., the first of its private equity investment funds, was formed to make investments in distressed companies. Apollos first fundraised approximately $400 million of investor commitments on the strength of Blacks reputation as a prominent lieutenant of Michael Milken and a key player in the buyout boom of the 1980s.[18] Lion Advisors was set up to provide investment services to Credit Lyonnais, which was seeking to profit from depressed prices in the high yield market.[21]

1990s[edit]

At the time of Apollos founding, there was little financing for new leveraged buyouts and Apollo turned instead to a strategy of distressed-to-control takeovers.[22][23] Apollo would purchase distressed securities which could be converted into a controlling interest in the equity of the company through a bankruptcy reorganization or other restructuring. Apollo used distressed debt as an entry point, enabling the firm to invest in such firms as Vail Resorts,[24] Walter Industries,[25][26] Culligan, and Samsonite.[27]

Early on, Apollo made a name for itself by acquiring interests in companies that Drexel had helped finance by purchasing high-yield bonds from failed savings and loans and insurance companies. Apollo acquired several large portfolios of assets from the U.S. governments Resolution Trust Corporation.[28] One of Apollos earliest and most successful deals involved the acquisition of Executive Life Insurance Companys bond portfolio. Using this vehicle, Apollo would purchase the Executive Life portfolio, generating tremendous profits[clarification needed] when the value of high yield bonds recovered, but also resulting in a variety of state regulatory issues for Apollo and Credit Lyonnais over the purchase.[29] More than a decade after the purchase, in 2002, California Attorney General Bill Lockyer accused Apollo, Leon Black, and an investor group led by French bank Credit Lyonnais of illegally acquiring the assets and bond portfolio of Executive Life Insurance Co. in 1991. According to the State of California, Credit Lyonnais allegedly violated a California law that prohibited foreign government-owned banks from owning California insurance companies.[30]

In 1993, Apollo Real Estate Advisers was founded in collaboration with William Mack to seek opportunities in the U.S. property markets.[31] Apollo Real Estate Investment Fund, L.P., the first in a family of real estate opportunity funds, was closed in April 1993 with $500 million of investor commitments. In 2000, Apollo exited the partnership, which continued to operate as Apollo Real Estate Advisers until changing its name to AREA Property Partners, effective January 15, 2009. That firm is owned and controlled by its remaining principals, who include William Mack, Lee Neibart, William Benjamin, John Jacobsson, Stuart Koenig, and Richard Mack.[32] As of 2008, the firm was investing out of three funds: Apollo Real Estate Investment Fund V, Apollo European Real Estate Fund II, and Apollo Value Enhancement Fund VII. In 2004, Apollo Real Estate acquired the Value Enhancement Funds family of investment vehicles to broaden its offerings in the value-added segment of the real estate investment spectrum. Apollo also operates a real estate mezzanine lending program and real estate securities hedge fund called Claros Real Estate Securities Fund, L.P.[33]

In 1995, Apollo raised its third private equity fund, Apollo Investment Fund III, with $1.5 billion of investor commitments from investors that included CalPERS and the General Motors pension fund.[34][35] Unlike its first two funds and later funds, Fund III would ultimately prove only an average performer for private equity funds of its vintage. Among the investments made in Fund III (invested through 1998) were: Alliance Imaging, Allied Waste Industries, Breuners Home Furnishings, Levitz Furniture,[36] Communications Corporation of America,[37] Dominicks, Ralphs (acquired Apollos Food-4-Less),[38] Move.com, NRT Incorporated,[39] Pillowtex Corporation,[40] Telemundo,[41] and WMC Mortgage Corporation.[42]

Apollo invested in AMC in 2001 and would buy out the company in 2004

Also in 1995, Apollo founding partner Craig Cogut left the firm to found a smaller competitor Pegasus Capital Advisors. Since inception Pegasus has raised $1.8 billion in four private equity funds focused on investments in middle-market companies in financial distress. In 1997, Apollo co-founder Tony Ressler founded Ares Management as the successor to its Lion Advisors business which would manage collateralized debt obligation vehicles.[43]

In 1998, Apollo raised its fourth private equity fund, Apollo Investment Fund IV, with $3.6 billion of investor commitments.[34] Among the investments made in Fund IV (invested through 2001) were: Allied Waste Industries,[44] AMC Entertainment,[45] Berlitz International,[46] Clark Retail Enterprises,[47] Corporate Express (Buhrmann), Encompass Services Corporation, National Financial Partners, Pacer International,[48] Rent-A-Center, Resolution Performance Products, Resolution Specialty Materials, Sirius Satellite Radio, SkyTerra Communications, United Rentals, and Wyndham Worldwide.[49]

2000–2005[edit]

src=https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b3/SolowBuilding.jpg/165px-SolowBuilding.jpg

Apollo deployed its fourth fund during the booming markets of the late 1990s, only to experience difficulties with the collapse of the Internet bubble and the onset of the recession. Amid the turmoil of collapsing markets, Apollo was able to raise its fifth private equity fund in 2001, Apollo Investment Fund V, with $3.7 billion of investor commitments.[citation needed] Among the investments made in Fund V (invested through 2006) were Affinion Group, AMC Entertainment, Berry Plastics, Cablecom, Compass Minerals, General Nutrition Centers (GNC), Goodman Global, Hexion Specialty Chemicals (Borden), Intelsat, Linens n Things, Metals USA, Nalco Investment Holdings, Sourcecorp, Spectrasite Communications, and Unity Media.

Meanwhile, Ares profited significantly from investments made after the collapse of the high yield market in 2000 and 2001.[citation needed] Although the founders of Ares had completed a spin-out with the formation of the firm in 1997, they had initially maintained a close relationship with Apollo and operated as the West Coast affiliate of Apollo.[50][citation needed] By 2002, when Ares raised its first corporate opportunities fund, the firm announced that it would separate from its former parent company. The timing of this separation also coincided with Apollos legal difficulties with the State of California over its purchase of Executive Life Insurance Company in 1991.[51]

Following the spin-off of Ares in 2002, Apollo developed two new affiliates to continue its investment activities in the capital markets. The first of these new affiliates, founded in 2003, was Apollo Distressed Investment Fund (DIF) Management a credit opportunity investment vehicle.[52] The following year, in April 2004, Apollo raised $930 million through an initial public offering (IPO) for a listed business development company, Apollo Investment Corporation (NasdaqAINV)). Apollo Investment Corporation was formed to invest primarily in middle-market companies in the form of mezzanine debt and senior secured loans, as well as by making certain direct equity investments in companies. The company also invests in the securities of public companies.[53][54]

2005–2010[edit]

src=https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/03/Caesars_Palace_-_Across_Bellagio_Lake.jpg/255px-Caesars_Palace_-_Across_Bellagio_Lake.jpg

Between 2005 and 2007 the private equity market was booming, with new largest buyout records set and surpassed several times in an 18-month window.[55] Although Apollo was involved in a number of notable and large buyouts, the firm avoided the very largest transactions during the time. Among Apollos most notable investments during this period included Harrahs Entertainment, a leading US gaming and casino company; Norwegian Cruise Line, the cruise line operator; Claires Stores, the retailer of costume jewelry; and Realogy, the real estate franchisor.[56]

In August 2006, Apollo launched a $2 billion publicly traded private equity vehicle in Europe, AP Alternative Assets (ENXTAM:AAA).[54] The IPO of this new vehicle followed in the footsteps of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, which raised $5 billion for its KKR Private Equity Investors vehicle in May 2006.[57] Apollo initially attempted to raise $2.5 billion for the public vehicle but fell short when it offered the shares in June, raising only $1.5 billion. Apollo raised an additional $500 million via private placements in the weeks following that sale.[58]

Between 2006 and 2007, as the private equity industry expanded, several of the largest private equity firms, most notably The Blackstone Group and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, announced plans to realize value from their firms through the sale of shares in the public equity markets. Apollo Management chose a different path and completed a private placement of shares in its management company in July 2007. By pursuing a private placement rather than a public offering, Apollo was able to avoid much of the public scrutiny applied to Blackstone and KKR.[54][59] In November 2007, Apollo was able to realize additional value from the sale of a 9% ownership interest in its management company to the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA).[60] Ultimately, in April 2008, Apollo filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)[61] to permit some holders of its privately traded stock to sell their shares on the New York Stock Exchange. That same year, the firm opened an office in India, marking their first push into Asia.[62]

Apollo lost its investment in retailer Linens n Things with the companys 2008 bankruptcy[63]

As the deterioration of the financial markets worsened into 2008, Apollo saw several of its investments come under pressure. Apollos 2005 investment in the struggling US retailer Linens n Things suffered from a significant debt burden and softening consumer demand. In May 2008, Linens filed for bankruptcy protection, costing Apollo all of its $365 million investment in the company.[63][64] At the same time, Apollos investment in Claires, Realogy and Harrahs Entertainment came under pressure.[56] Apollo responded to its investment difficulties by seeking to exchange a portion of the existing debt at Harrahs and Realogy to more favorable securities.[65] At Claires, Apollo exercised its PIK toggle option to shut off cash interest payments to its bondholders and instead issue more debt, in order to provide the company with additional financial flexibility.[66]

In December 2008, Apollo completed fundraising for its latest fund, Apollo Investment Fund VII, with approximately $14.7 billion of investor commitments.[67] Apollo had been targeting $15 billion, but had been in fundraising for more than 16 months, with the bulk of the capital raised in 2007.[68]

In December 2009, it was announced that Apollo would acquire Cedar Fair Entertainment Company shares and the company would become private underneath the management group.[69] The deal includes a cash payment of $635 million and assumed debt which gives the transaction a value of $2.4 billion.[70] It was later announced in April 2010 that the deal was pulled due to poor shareholder response.[71]

2011–2017[edit]

In January 2011, Apollo acquired 51% of Alcan Engineered Products from Rio Tinto.[72]

In March 2011, Apollo completed its initial public offering (NYSE: APO).[73]

In March 2012, Apollo made a second attempt to acquire an amusement park operator with a $225.7 million offer for Great Wolf Resorts.[74] In November 2012, Apollo acquired The McGraw-Hill Companies education division (McGraw-Hill Education) in a deal totaling $2.5 billion.[75]

On March 11, 2013, Apollo Global Management made the only bid for the snacks business of Hostess Brands, including Twinkies, for $410 million.[76] Apollo bought a portfolio of Irish home loans from Lloyds Bank in December 2013 for €307m, less than half their nominal £610m (€367m) value.[clarification needed] The shares were bought by an Apollo Global Management subsidiary, Tanager Limited. The portfolio made a £33m loss last year.[77]

In January 2014, Apollo and CEC Entertainment, the parent company of Chuck E. Cheeses, announced that Apollo bought the company and its brand for about $1 billion.[78]

In October 2014, Apollo finalized the merger of its Endemol television studio with 21st Century Foxs Shine Group. The merged company became Endemol Shine Group, with AGM and Fox each owning half of the studio.[79]

In June 2015, Apollo Global Management made a successful offer of around $1.03 billion in cash to privatize OM Group.[82] Also that month, Apollo won the bidding during an auction for Saint-Gobains Verallia glass bottle manufacturing unit for a rumored fee of around 2.95 billion.[83]

In February 2016, ADT Corporation agreed to be acquired by Apollo Global Management.[84] Apollo Education Group[85] shareholders approved a merger with Apollo Global Management in May 2016. Apollo Education is the parent company of the University of Phoenix. In June 2016, Apollo Global Management made a successful offer to purchase Diamond Resorts International.[86] Apollo made a successful offer to purchase Rackspace in August 2016.[87]

In May 2017, Apollo announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire West Corp for approximately $2 billion.[88] In December, Apollo agreed to acquire Mexican restaurant chain Qdoba from Jack in the Box.[89]

In November 2017, Apollo Global Management loaned $184 million to Kushner Companies.[90]

2018–2019[edit]

AGM was in talks to buy Nexstar Media Group for over $1 billion.[91] However, on February 14, 2019, Cox Media Group announced that it was selling its 14 television stations to AGM.[92] In March 2019 filings with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Apollo disclosed that, through the newly formed Terrier Media, the Cox stations would be acquired for $3.1 billion (to be reduced by the value of a minority equity stake in Terrier that will be retained by Cox Enterprises); Terrier will also concurrently acquire Northwest Broadcasting, giving the company 25 television stations.[93] On June 26, 2019, Cox announced that its 60 radio stations, as well as its national advertising business CoxReps, and local OTT advertising agency Gamut, would also be acquired by the new company, which concurrently announced that it would retain the Cox Media Group name instead of Terrier Media.[94] On February 10, 2020, Cox Enterprises bought back the Ohio newspapers it sold to AGM. The FCC required Apollo to reduce the daily newspapers to three days or sell them.[95]

On April 16, 2019, AGM announced that it would once again acquire Smart & Final for $1.1 billion.[96] On June 10, 2019, AGM announced that it would acquire Shutterfly for $2.7 billion, as well as its competitor Snapfish in a separate transaction valued at around $300 million. Apollo plans to merge both companies into a single entity, with Snapfish parent company District Photo as a minority stakeholder.[97] In August, AGM agreed to provide approximately $1.8 billion of debt financing to support New Media Investment Group Inc.s acquisition of Gannett.[98] On October 23, 2019, AGM announced it signed agreements to take a 48.6% stake in Italian gambling group Gamenet SPA.[99][100] On October 26, 2019, Apollo and The Walt Disney Company agreed to sell Endemol Shine Group to French studio Banijay Group.[101] The sale was completed on July 3, 2020.[102]

2020–present[edit]

At the end of March 2020, Apollo Global Managed reported $315.5 billion of assets under management.[103][104] In April 2020, AGM announced that it would invest $300 million in Cimpress, an Irish-domiciled printing group that owns Vistaprint.[105] In May, AGM announced the purchase of $1.75 billion of preferred stock in Albertsons Companies.[106] In July 2020, it was reported that the company totalled around $100 billion in investments for war chest in the second quarter of 2020. The sum was double the companys previous record despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.[107]

In March 2021, Apollo managed a $110 million mezzanine credit facility between LendingPoint and MidCap Financial Trust.[108]

On May 3, 2021, Apollo announced its intention to acquire Verizon Media (which includes AOL, Yahoo!, and Verizon Digital Media Services properties) from Verizon for $5 billion. Verizon will retain a 10% stake in the new company, which will be named Yahoo.[109]

SuccessorAres Management

Lion Advisors (or Lion Capital), which was founded at the same time as Apollo in 1990, focused on investment management and consulting services to foreign institutional accounts targeting investments in public and private high yield debt securities in the US. In 1992, Lion entered into a more formal arrangement to manage the $3 billion high-yield portfolio for Credit Lyonnais which together with a consortium of other international investors provided the capital for Lions investment activities. The Lion business would ultimately be replaced by Ares Management.[171]

Ares Management, founded in 1997, was initially established to manage a $1.2 billion market value collateralized debt obligation vehicle. Ares would grow to manage a family of collateralized loan obligation (CLO) vehicles that would invest in capital markets-based securities including senior bank loans and high-yield and mezzanine debt. Ares was founded by Antony Ressler and John H. Kissick, both partners at Apollo as well as Bennett Rosenthal, who joined the group from the global leveraged finance group at Merrill Lynch.[172]

Ares I and II which were raised were structured as market value CLOs. Ares III though Ares X was structured as cash flow CLOs. In 2002, Ares completed a spinout from Apollo management. Although technically, the founders of Ares had completed a spinout with the formation of the firm in 1997, they had maintained a close relationship with Apollo over its first five years and operated as the West Coast affiliate of Apollo. Shortly thereafter, Ares completed fundraising for Ares Corporate Opportunities Fund, a special situations investment fund with $750 million of capital under management.[171][172]

In 2004, Ares debuted a publicly traded business development company, Ares Capital Corporation (NASDAQ:ARCC).[173] In 2006, Ares raised a $2.1 billion successor special situations fund (Ares Corporate Opportunities Fund II).[172]
