LOS ANGELES-Executives during CBRE Inc.’s Q1 2012 earnings conference call on April 24 reported favorable numbers: Revenue for the quarter totaled $1.35 billion (a 14% increase year over year from $1.2 million); an EBIDTA increase of 24% from the same quarter last year and net income per diluted share moving up from $40.6 million during Q1 2011 to $45.9 million during the just completed quarter. Even the selected charges of $18.9 million were viewed in a positive light, matched as they were to the ING Real Estate Investment Management acquisition, which CBRE spent much of 2011 completing.
