With no debt and $1.1 billion of cash and near-cash items, Onex is in a very strong financial position. Onex also has $1.3 billion of undrawn, committed capital from limited partners in Onex Partners III and ONCAP III. Combined, we have the resources to pursue just about any attractive opportunity.
In 2012, Onex' operating companies paid down approximately $1.8 billion of debt and distributed approximately $1.6 billion, including a $1.2 billion distribution from Tomkins following the sale of several non-core assets. Our businesses also made capital expenditures and add-on acquisitions of approximately $1.1 billion, including JELD-WEN's acquisition of CraftMaster, the world's third-largest integrated manufacturer of interior doors and door facings.
Onex' interest in Onex Partners' and ONCAP's private companies grew by 17% and 23%, respectively, in 2012. Overall, Onex' proprietary capital, including $1.1 billion of cash and near-cash items, grew by 12% on a per share basis during the year.
By transforming good businesses into industry leaders, Onex has generated a 28-year gross IRR of 28% and an average multiple of 2.9 times invested capital from realized, substantially realized and publicly traded investments. At Onex, we all share in the success and failure of our investments. At December 31, 2012, the value of the Onex team's investment in Onex' shares and its businesses was approximately $1.7 billion.
Managing and Growing Third-Party Capital
Onex earns recurring management fees and/or carried interest on $8.8 billion of third-party assets under management. In 2012, Onex Partners, ONCAP and Onex Credit Partners earned a total of $113 million in management and other fees. Onex also received $3 million of carried interest as a result of the realization of Center for Diagnostic Imaging. Combined fees and carried interest received offset ongoing operating expenses in 2012.
At December 31, 2012, the value of Onex' unrealized carried interest was approximately $50 million based on the traded market values of Onex Partners' public companies and a further $90 million based on the year-end valuations of the private businesses. Onex' share of the total unrealized carried interest grew by $47 million in 2012. The amount of carried interest ultimately realized by Onex depends on the overall performance of each Fund.
With Onex Partners III more than 75% invested, Onex is in a position to fundraise for Onex Partners IV.
Onex Credit Partners completed two CLO offerings in 2012, raising approximately $840 million, including $58 million from Onex. These CLOs increased Onex Credit Partners' third-party capital under management to $1.8 billion. In the last few years, the market for CLOs has significantly consolidated and favours well-capitalized, diversified sponsors. As market conditions permit, we expect Onex Credit Partners to launch additional CLOs, which would represent an additional source of recurring management fees.
Creating Value for Shareholders
Over time, we hope that the value of Onex' shares reflects both growth in the value of our assets and the intrinsic value of our asset management capabilities. At December 31, 2012 Onex' Subordinate Voting Shares closed at C$41.87, a 26% increase from December 31, 2011. This compares to a 13% increase in the S&P 500 and a 4% increase in the S&P/TSX Composite Index.
The Company paid a fourth-quarter dividend of C$0.0275 per Subordinate Voting Share on January 31, 2013 to shareholders of record on January 10, 2013.
