HFF Inc. has signed a lease for 6,000 square feet at Fifth Third Center in Charlotte, and law firm Winstead has expanded at the uptown office tower, adding roughly 6,000 square feet. HFF opened a Charlotte office last year, hiring investment sales specialist Ryan Clutter to manage the office with Travis Anderson, who relocated from the firm's Dallas office to lead debt and equity placement for HFF in the Carolinas. Since opening here, the firm has worked on the sales of buildings that include 525 North Tryon, where HFF's Charlotte office is currently based.

Working on behalf of Faros Properties, LLC, HFF placed the three-year, floating-rate loan with Wells Fargo Bank. Loan proceeds were used to purchase the property and make capital improvements.

HFF, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended December 31, 2014

HFF, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported revenue of $142,489,000 against $130,968,000 for the same period in the last year. Operating income was $37,220,000 against $36,043,000 for the same period in the last year. Income before income taxes was $44,842,000 against $38,979,000 for the same period in the last year. Net income attributable was $26,945,000 or $0.71 per basic and diluted share against $22,665,000 or $0.60 per diluted share for the same period in the last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $43,551,000 against $41,293,000 for the same period in the last year. The increase in operating income is primarily due to the 8.8% increase in revenues and was partially offset by: increases in the company’s compensation-related costs and expenses associated with the net growth in headcount of 84 associates during the year, and an increase in contractual performance-based incentives for recruited transaction professionals, and increases in other operating expenses due to the growth in transactional activity and an increase in the headcount. These increases were partially offset by a reduction in firm and office profit participation expenses and non-cash stock compensation expense. Interest and other income, net, totaled $7.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of $4.7 million compared to $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. This increase is primarily a result of additional income recognized upon the initial valuation of the Company’s mortgage servicing rights and from an increase in securitization and other agency-related income. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA is attributable to the increases in operating income and securitization and other agency-related income. The Adjusted EBITDA margin for the fourth quarter of 2014 was 30.6% compared to an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 31.5% in the fourth quarter of 2013. For the year, the company reported revenue of $425,918,000 against $355,605,000 for the same period in the last year. Operating income was $84,827,000 against $69,977,000 for the same period in the last year. Income before income taxes was $103,512,000 against $86,004,000 for the same period in the last year. Net income was $61,286,000 or $1.61 per diluted share against $51,426,000 or $1.36 per diluted share for the same period in the last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $110,110,000 against $96,948,000 for the same period in the last year. This 19.8% increase in revenues is driven primarily by a growth in production volumes of 16.6%. The increase in operating income is primarily attributable to the 19.8% growth in revenues and was partially offset by: additional compensation-related costs and expenses associated with the increases in headcount, performance-based compensation and non-cash stock compensation, and increases in other operating expenses due to the growth in transactional activity and an increase in the headcount. Interest and other income, net, was $17.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, compared to $17.1 million for the twelve months ending December 31, 2013. The growth in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to the increase in operating income partially offset by a decrease in the securitization related other income. Revenue per producer increased by 9.7%, which is primarily due to the firm's team-oriented culture and efficiencies obtained from the synergies between and among the firm's business lines and property verticals. The growth in revenue for the full year is driven by a 24.2% increase in investment sales transaction volume, as adjusted for large transactions, and a 15.7% increase in debt transaction volumes as well as an increase in servicing revenue from the growth in servicing portfolio.
