The fiscal 2022 revenue contribution from this business amounted to $335.3 million, an increase of 3.5% compared to the prior year.

Revenue in the Company's UK & Crown Dependencies wealth management business amounted to $80.3 million for the fourth quarter and $310.5 million for the fiscal year, increases of 7.2% and 12.0% respectively, primarily due to higher commissions and fees revenue and interest income attributable to the higher interest rate environment.

Canaccord Genuity Capital Markets

Globally, Canaccord Genuity Capital Markets earned revenue of $312.0 million for the fourth fiscal quarter, representing a decrease of 35.9% from the record set in Q4/21, largely reflecting the anticipated decrease in investment banking revenue and principal trading revenue in our US and Canadian operations. Our combined global capital markets businesses contributed revenue of $1.3 billion for the fiscal year, a year-over-year decrease of 0.7%. Firm-wide advisory revenue for the three- and 12-month periods increased 85.6% and 152.5% year-over-year to $121.6 million and $488.6 million, which is a new full-year-record for this segment.  Excluding significant items(1), this segment contributed pre-tax net income of $73.4 million for the fourth quarter and $324.6 million for the fiscal year, compared to $155.1 million in Q4/21 and $324.9 million in the previous fiscal year.

  • Canaccord Genuity Capital Markets led or co-led 47 investment banking transactions globally, each over $1.5 million, raising total proceeds of $3.3 billion during Q4/22.

  • Canaccord Genuity Capital Markets led or co-led 329 investment banking transactions globally, each over $1.5 million, raising total proceeds of $13.5 billion during fiscal 2022.

The Company's US capital markets business was the largest contributor of revenue for the three-month period, with revenue of $146.5 million, or 47.0% of total global capital markets revenue. Declines in investment banking and trading revenue during the fourth quarter were partially offset by strong advisory activity, which included contributions from our recent acquisition of Sawaya . Fourth quarter advisory revenue increased 195.3% year-over-year to $64.8 million, bringing advisory revenue for the fiscal year to a record $317.0 million, an increase of 218.8% compared to the prior fiscal year. Investment banking revenue for the three-month period decreased by 78.7% to $15.1 million when compared to the extraordinary record set in the fourth quarter of the prior year. For fiscal 2022, investment banking revenue decreased by 35.2% year-over-year to $110.0 million, reflecting the impact of the expected broad market decline that began in the second half of fiscal 2022. Principal trading revenue also decreased by 49.6% from the prior year's record, to $37.9 million in the fourth quarter due to lower trading volume and activity. Excluding significant items(1), the pre-tax profit margin in this business was 24.2% for the fourth quarter and 23.6% for the fiscal year, increases of 0.8 percentage points and 4.4 percentage points respectively.

Fourth quarter revenue of $74.5 million in our Canadian capital markets operations remained strong by historical standards but decreased by 62.6% when compared to the record set in Q4/21. This business set new quarterly and fiscal year records in advisory revenue, which amounted to $35.0 million in the fourth fiscal quarter and $105.0 million for the fiscal year, representing year-over-year increases of 12.8% and 65.5% respectively. Fourth quarter investment banking, principal trading, and commissions and fees revenue declined by 83.5%, 74.9% and 43.8% respectively when compared to the same period in the prior year. This business continues to be a top-ranked domestic underwriter in Canada and a leading underwriter for initial public offerings. Excluding significant items(1),  the  pre-tax profit margin in this business was 24.5% for the fourth quarter and 30.6% for the fiscal year, representing decreases of 22.5 percentage points and 5.2 percentage points from the prior year's quarterly and full-year records, but remained comfortably above historic levels.

Fourth quarter revenue earned by our Australian capital markets business increased 29.0% year-over-year to $61.8 million, reflecting a 25.0% increase in investment banking revenue and a 98.4% increase in commissions and fees revenue when compared to the same period a year ago. This business contributed revenue of $174.1 million for the fiscal year, a decrease of 4.7% compared to the prior year's record, and substantially above historic levels. This performance was largely driven by the robust environment for underwriting activities in our focus sectors and also includes unrealized gains in certain inventory and warrant positions earned in respect of investment banking activity. Excluding significant items(1),  the pre-tax profit margin in this business increased by 9.8 percentage points  to 29.5% for the fourth quarter and increased by  2.1 percentage points  to 29.0% for the fiscal year.

Revenue in our UK operations decreased by 19.1% for the three-month period driven mainly by lower investment banking revenue.  Advisory revenue in this business was $21.7 million for the fourth quarter and $66.6 million for the fiscal year, representing year-over-year increases of 73.9% and 117.8% respectively, and the second highest quarterly and annual contributions for this segment on record.  Excluding significant items (1), our UK & Europe capital markets business earned pre-tax net income of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter, increasing its pre-tax net income contribution for the year to $11.7 million, a year-over-year improvement of 269.5% and the highest amount since fiscal 2014. The pre-tax profit margin in this business excluding significant items(1) , was 5.0% for the fourth quarter and 9.7% for the fiscal year.

redemption of convertible debentures.  Transaction costs incurred in connection with the loan facility were recognized on an amortized cost basis and included in the effective
interest rate of the facility.  Interest associated with this loan facility is included in costs associated with redemption of convertible debentures for year ended March 31, 2022.

Diluted earnings per common share (diluted EPS) is computed using the treasury stock method, giving effect to the exercise of all dilutive elements. The Convertible Preferred Shares issued by CGWM UK are factored into the diluted EPS by adjusting net income attributable to common shareholders of the Company to reflect our proportionate share of CGWM UK's earnings on an as converted basis if the calculation is dilutive.  For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the effect of reflecting our proportionate share of CGWM UK's earnings is dilutive for diluted EPS purposes under IFRS as well as for the purpose of determining diluted EPS excluding significant items (1). Accordingly, net income attributable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 reflects the Company's proportionate share of CGWM UK's net income on an as converted basis.

The effect of reflecting the proportionate share of CGWM UK's net income excluding significant items(1) is only dilutive for the third and  fourth quarters of  fiscal 2022.  For the year ended March 31, 2022, the effect is anti-dilutive under IFRS for diluted EPS purposes but dilutive for the purpose of determining diluted EPS excluding significant items(1).  As such, the diluted EPS under IFRS for fiscal 2022 is computed based on net income attributable to common shareholders less accrued dividends on the Convertible Preferred Shares issued by CGWM UK.

Financial Condition at the End of Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2022 vs. Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2021:

  • Cash and cash equivalents balance of $1.8 billion, a decrease of $95.0 million from $1.9 billion

  • Working capital of $794.4 million, an increase of $ 241.9 million from $552.5 million

  • Total shareholders' equity of $1.2 billion, an increase of $71.0 million from $1.1 billion

Common and Preferred Share Dividends: 

On June 2, 2022, the Board of Directors approved a dividend of $0.085 per common share, payable on June 30, 2022, with a record date of June 17, 2022.

On June 2, 2022, the Board approved a cash dividend of $0.25175 per Series A Preferred Share payable on June 30, 2022 to Series A Preferred shareholders of record as at June 17, 2022.

On June 2, 2022, the Board approved a cash dividend of $0.31206 per Series C Preferred Share payable on June 30, 2022 to Series C Preferred shareholders of record as at June 17, 2022.

Non-IFRS Measures

Certain non-IFRS measures, non-IFRS ratios and supplementary financial measures are utilized by the Company as measures of financial performance. Non-IFRS measures, non-IFRS ratios and supplementary financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Management believes that these non-IFRS measures, non-IFRS ratios and supplementary financial measures allow for a better evaluation of the operating performance of the Company's business and facilitate meaningful comparison of results in the current period to those in prior periods and future periods. Non-IFRS measures presented in this earnings release include certain figures from our statement of operations that are adjusted to exclude significant items. Although figures that exclude significant items provide useful information by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core operating results, a limitation of utilizing these figures that exclude significant items is that the IFRS accounting effects of these items do in fact reflect the underlying financial results of the Company's business. Accordingly, these effects should not be ignored in evaluating and analyzing the Company's financial results. Therefore, management believes that the Company's IFRS measures of financial performance and the respective non-IFRS measures should be considered together.

Non-IFRS Measures  (Adjusted Figures)

Figures that exclude significant items provide useful information by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core operating results. Financial statement items that exclude significant items are non-IFRS measures. To calculate these non-IFRS financial statement items, we exclude certain items from our financial results prepared in accordance with IFRS.  The items which have been excluded are referred to herein as significant items. The following is a description of the composition of the non-IFRS measures used in this earnings release (note that some significant items excluded may not be applicable to the calculation

of the non-IFRS measures for each comparative period): (i) revenue excluding significant items, which is composed of revenue per IFRS less any applicable fair value adjustments on certain illiquid or restricted marketable securities as recorded for IFRS reporting purposes but which are excluded for management reporting purposes and are not used by management to assess operating performance; (ii) expenses excluding significant items, which is composed of expenses per IFRS less any applicable amortization of intangible assets acquired in connection with a business combination, acquisition-related expense items, which includes costs recognized in relation to both prospective and completed acquisitions, certain incentive-based costs related to the acquisitions and growth initiatives in  CGWM UK and US capital markets, costs associated with the redemption of convertible debentures, costs associated with the reorganization of CGWM UK, and fair value adjustments to the derivative liability component of non-controlling interests in CGWM UK; (iii) net income before taxes excluding significant items, which  is composed of revenue excluding significant items less expenses excluding significant items;  (iv) income taxes (adjusted), which is composed of income taxes per IFRS adjusted to reflect the associated tax effect of the excluded significant items; (v) net income excluding significant items, which is composed of net income before income taxes excluding significant items less income taxes (adjusted); (vi) non-controlling interests (adjusted), which is composed of non-controlling interests per IFRS less the amortization of the equity component of non-controlling interests in CGWM UK; and (vii) net income attributable to common shareholders excluding significant items, which is composed of net income excluding significant items less non-controlling interests (adjusted) and preferred share dividends paid on the Series A and Series C Preferred Shares.

A reconciliation of non-IFRS measures that exclude significant items to the applicable IFRS measures from the audited consolidated financial statements for fiscal 2022 can be found above in the table entitled "Summary of results for Q4 fiscal 2022 and year ended March 31, 2022 and selected financial information excluding significant items".

Non-IFRS Ratios

Non-IFRS ratios are calculated using the non-IFRS measures defined above. For the periods presented herein, we have used the following non-IFRS ratios: (i) total expenses excluding significant items as a percentage of revenue, which is calculated by dividing expenses excluding significant items by revenue excluding significant items; (ii) earnings per common share excluding significant items, which is calculated by dividing net income attributable to common shareholders excluding significant items by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding (basic); (iii) diluted earnings per common share excluding significant items which is calculated by dividing net income attributable to common shareholders excluding significant items  by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding (diluted); and (iv) pre-tax profit margin which is calculated by dividing net income before taxes excluding significant items by revenue excluding significant items.

Supplementary Financial Measures

Client assets are supplementary financial measures that do not have any definitions prescribed under IFRS but do not meet the definition of a non-IFRS measure or non-IFRS ratio.  Client assets, which include both assets under management (AUM) and assets under administration (AUA), is a measure that is common to the wealth management business. Client assets is the market value of client assets managed and administered by the Company from which the Company earns commissions and fees.  This measure includes funds held in client accounts as well as the aggregate market value of long and short security positions. The Company's method of calculating client assets may differ from the methods used by other companies, and therefore these measures may not be comparable to other companies. Management uses these measures to assess operational performance of the Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management business segment.
