NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Evercore Partners Inc. (EVR) today announced that its U.S. GAAP Net Revenues were $149.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to $152.6 million and $218.7 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively. U.S. GAAP Net Income from Continuing Operations for the first quarter was $13.4 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to $9.3 million, or $0.17 per share, a year ago and $23.4 million, or $0.42 per share, last quarter.

Adjusted Pro Forma Net Revenues were $149.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared with $152.9 million and $214.6 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. was $14.7 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter, compared to $16.7 million, or $0.36 per share, a year ago and $33.0 million, or $0.71 per share, last quarter.

The U.S. GAAP trailing twelve-month compensation ratio of 62.4% compares to 65.3% for the same period in 2013 and 63.5% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013. The U.S. GAAP compensation ratio for the three months ended March 31, 2014, March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013 was 61.3%, 66.8% and 61.3%, respectively. The Adjusted Pro Forma compensation ratio for the trailing twelve months was 59.1%, compared to 59.2% for the same period in 2013 and 59.2% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013. The Adjusted Pro Forma compensation ratio for the current quarter was 59.2%, compared to 59.8% and 59.0% for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively.

Evercore’s quarterly results may fluctuate significantly due to the timing and amount of transaction fees earned, as well as other factors. Accordingly, financial results in any particular quarter may not be representative of future results over a longer period of time.

“Our results in the first quarter were affected by the delay in the closing of meaningful transactions and the seasonality that we have experienced in previous first quarters. While our advisory business grew only modestly compared to the first quarter of last year, our risked and unrisked backlogs are at record levels, causing us to be optimistic about the continued momentum of our business in the coming quarters. Our equities business continued to grow market share in secondary trading but reported lower overall revenues due to a decline in underwriting revenue as markets became unsettled late in the quarter. And our investment management business increased both the level of assets under management and its contribution to our earnings,” said Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to be pleased with the overall momentum of our business. The pipeline for advisory and underwriting assignments grew throughout the quarter and now is at record levels. Our early stage businesses performed well, with both Private Funds and Wealth Management reporting the best quarters in their history. We are actively recruiting new talent, both in the U.S. and globally. And we returned $71.9 million to our shareholders, including repurchasing 1.1 million shares of stock.”

“It's evident that the M&A environment is becoming healthier,” said Roger Altman, Executive Chairman. “And, we are confident of our ability to gain market share as this improvement continues.”

The U.S. GAAP and Adjusted Pro Forma results present the continuing operations of the Company, which exclude amounts related to Evercore Pan-Asset Capital Management (“Pan”), whose operations were discontinued during the fourth quarter of 2013. See page A-1 for the full financial results of the Company including its discontinued operations.

Throughout the discussion of Evercore’s business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, which is an unaudited non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) measure. Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), and then those results are adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore’s results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore’s operating results. Evercore uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information about the Adjusted Pro Forma basis of reporting used by management to evaluate the performance of Evercore and each line of business, including reconciliations of U.S. GAAP results to an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, see pages A-2 through A-11 included in Annex I. These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company’s two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management.

Business Line Reporting

A discussion of Adjusted Pro Forma revenues and expenses is presented below for the Investment Banking and Investment Management segments. Unless otherwise stated, all of the financial measures presented in this discussion are Adjusted Pro Forma measures. For a reconciliation of the Adjusted Pro Forma segment data to U.S. GAAP results, see pages A-2 to A-11 in Annex I.

For the first quarter, Evercore’s Investment Banking segment reported Net Revenues of $126.2 million, which represents a decrease of 3% year-over-year and 32% sequentially. Operating Income of $23.2 million decreased 17% from the first quarter of last year and 47% sequentially. Operating Margins were 18.4% in comparison to 21.3% for the first quarter of last year and 23.7% for the fourth quarter of last year.

Revenues

During the quarter, Investment Banking earned advisory fees from 116 clients (vs. 115 in Q1 2013 and 182 in Q4 2013) and fees in excess of $1 million from 32 transactions (vs. 26 in Q1 2013 and 51 in Q4 2013).

The Institutional Equities business contributed revenues of $9.9 million in the quarter, down 21% in comparison to the fourth quarter, reflecting lower levels of activity in both the primary and secondary markets during the quarter, and down 14% from the first quarter of 2013, reflecting weaker underwriting results.

Expenses

Compensation costs were $75.5 million for the first quarter, a decrease of 3% year-over-year and 34% sequentially. The trailing twelve-month compensation ratio was 60.4%, up from 59.1% a year ago and flat from the previous quarter. Evercore’s Investment Banking compensation ratio was 59.9% for the first quarter, versus the compensation ratio reported for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013 of 59.8% and 61.5%, respectively.

Non-compensation costs for the current quarter were $27.5 million, up 12% from the same period last year and flat sequentially. The increase in costs versus the prior year reflects the addition of personnel within the business. The ratio of non-compensation costs to net revenue for the current quarter was 21.8%, compared to 18.9% in the same quarter last year and 14.7% in the previous quarter.

Expenses in the Institutional Equities business were $11.2 million for the first quarter, a decrease of 8% from the previous quarter.

(2) Realized and Unrealized Gains from Private Equity were $2.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013, on a U.S. GAAP basis, including the write-off of General Partnership investment balances during the fourth quarter of 2013 associated with the acquisition of Protego.
 

(3) Equity in G5 | Evercore - Wealth Management and ABS on a U.S. GAAP basis are reclassified from Investment Management Revenue to Income from Equity Method Investments.

 

Investment Advisory and Management Fees of $20.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 increased compared to the same period a year ago, driven primarily by higher fees in Wealth Management and Institutional Asset Management.

Realized and Unrealized Gains of $1.6 million in the quarter decreased relative to the prior year; the change relative to the prior period was driven principally by Private Equity losses.

Equity in Earnings of Affiliates of $0.6 million in the quarter decreased relative to the prior year and the prior quarter principally as a result of lower income earned in the first quarter of 2014 by G5 | Evercore.

Expenses

Investment Management’s first quarter expenses were $19.6 million, down 5% compared to the first quarter of 2013 and 2% compared to the previous quarter.

Other U.S. GAAP Expenses

Evercore’s Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. for the three months ended March 31, 2014 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of the exclusion of expenses associated with awards granted in conjunction with the Lexicon acquisition and certain business acquisition-related charges. In addition, for Adjusted Pro Forma purposes, client related expenses have been presented as a reduction from Revenues and Non-compensation costs. Further details of these expenses, as well as an explanation of similar expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013, are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-11.

Non-controlling Interests

Non-controlling Interests in certain subsidiaries are owned by the principals and strategic investors in these businesses. Evercore’s equity ownership percentages in these businesses primarily range from 51% to 80%. For the periods ended March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2013 the gain (loss) allocated to non-controlling interests was as follows:

    (1) The difference between the above Adjusted Pro Forma and U.S. GAAP Noncontrolling Interests relates primarily to intangible amortization expense for certain acquisitions, and allocations for discontinued operations, which we excluded from the Adjusted Pro Forma results.

We have committed to increase our ownership of the Wealth Management business from 51% to 61.5% in the second quarter of 2014.

Income Taxes

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, Evercore’s Adjusted Pro Forma effective tax rate was 37.0%, compared to 38.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, Evercore’s U.S. GAAP effective tax rate was approximately 36.1%, compared to 45.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The effective tax rate for U.S. GAAP purposes for 2014 reflects significant adjustments relating to the tax treatment of non-controlling interest associated with Evercore LP Units, state, local and foreign taxes, and other adjustments. In addition, for 2013, the effective tax rate for U.S. GAAP reflects the tax treatment of compensation transactions related to the vesting of Evercore LP Units, which were fully vested as of December 31, 2013.

Balance Sheet

The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, holding cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $166.7 million at March 31, 2014. Current assets exceed current liabilities by $250.6 million at March 31, 2014. Amounts due related to the Long-Term Notes Payable were $103.7 million at March 31, 2014.

On April 21, 2014, the Board of Directors of Evercore declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share to be paid on June 13, 2014 to common stockholders of record on May 30, 2014.

During the three months ended March 31, 2014 the Company repurchased approximately 1,150,000 shares at an average cost per share of $53.83.

Adjusted Pro Forma Results

Throughout the discussion of Evercore’s business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, which is a non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) measure. Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units, other IPO related restricted stock unit awards, as well as Acquisition Related Share Issuances and Unvested Restricted Stock Units granted to Lexicon employees, into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore’s results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore’s operating results. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company’s two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. The differences between Adjusted Pro Forma and U.S. GAAP results are as follows:

1. Assumed Vesting of Evercore LP Units and Exchange into Class A Shares. The Company incurred expenses, primarily, in Employee Compensation and Benefits, resulting from the modification of Evercore LP Units, which primarily vested over a five-year period ending December 31, 2013. The Adjusted Pro Forma results assume these LP Units have vested and have been exchanged for Class A shares. Accordingly, any expense associated with these units and related awards is excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results and the noncontrolling interest related to these units is converted to controlling interest. The Company’s Management believes that it is useful to provide the per-share effect associated with the assumed conversion of this previously granted but unvested equity, and thus the Adjusted Pro Forma results reflect the vesting of all unvested Evercore LP partnership units and IPO related restricted stock unit awards.

2. Adjustments Associated with Business Combinations. The following charges resulting from business combinations have been excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results because the Company’s Management believes that operating performance is more comparable across periods excluding the effects of these acquisition-related charges;

a. Amortization of Intangible Assets. Amortization of intangible assets related to the Protego acquisition, the Braveheart acquisition and the acquisitions of SFS and Lexicon.

b. Compensation Charges. Expenses for deferred share-based and cash consideration and retention awards associated with the acquisition of Lexicon, as well as base salary adjustments for Lexicon employees for the period preceding the acquisition.

c. Special Charges. Expenses primarily related to the write-off of intangible assets during the fourth quarter of 2013 associated with the acquisition of Morse Williams.

d. GP Investments. Write-off of General Partnership investment balances during the fourth quarter of 2013 associated with the acquisition of Protego.

3. Client Related Expenses. Client related expenses, expenses associated with revenue sharing engagements with third parties and provisions for uncollected receivables have been classified as a reduction of revenue in the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation. The Company’s Management believes that this adjustment results in more meaningful key operating ratios, such as compensation to net revenues and operating margin.

4. Income Taxes. Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, a C-Corporation and a Public Corporation and therefore, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate-level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to the Adjusted Pro Forma earnings to assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C-Corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates, that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis and that adjustments for deferred tax assets related to the ultimate tax deductions for equity-based compensation awards are made directly to stockholders’ equity. This assumption is consistent with the assumption that all Evercore LP Units are vested and exchanged into Class A shares, as discussed in Item 1 above, as the assumed exchange would change the tax structure of the Company. In addition, the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation reflects the netting of changes in the Company’s Tax Receivable Agreement against Income Tax Expense.

A - 2

5. Presentation of Interest Expense. The Adjusted Pro Forma results present interest expense on short-term repurchase agreements, within the Investment Management segment, in Other Revenues, net, as the Company’s Management believes it is more meaningful to present the spread on net interest resulting from the matched financial assets and liabilities. In addition, Adjusted Pro Forma Investment Banking and Investment Management Operating Income is presented before interest expense on long-term debt, which is included in interest expense on a U.S. GAAP basis.

6. Presentation of Income from Equity Method Investments. The Adjusted Pro Forma results present Income from Equity Method Investments within Revenue as the Company’s Management believes it is a more meaningful presentation.

7. Presentation of Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investment in Pan. The Adjusted Pro Forma results from continuing operations exclude the income (loss) from our equity method investment in Pan. The Company’s Management believes this to be a more meaningful presentation.

(10) Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, a C-Corporation and a Public Corporation and therefore, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to decrease Evercore’s effective tax rate to approximately 37% for the three months ended March 31, 2014. These adjustments assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C-Corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates, that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis and that, historically, adjustments for deferred tax assets related to the ultimate tax deductions for equity-based compensation awards are made directly to stockholders’ equity. In addition, the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation reflects the netting of changes in the Company’s Tax Receivable Agreement against Income Tax Expense .
