Och-Ziff Capital Management (NYSE: OZM) reported Q3 EPS of $0.05, $0.01 worse than the analyst estimate of $0.06.


  • Och-Ziff reached settlements with the U.S. Department of Justice (“the DOJ”) and the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (“the SEC”) in connection with their Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) investigations, and agreed to a monetary settlement in the amount of $412.1 million, which was paid in October 2016 (“FCPA settlements”).
  • Certain of the Company’s executive managing directors agreed to purchase up to $400 million of Class A Cumulative Preferred Units (the “Preferred Units”), the proceeds of which was used in part to pay the FCPA settlements. The remainder will be used for general corporate purposes.
