COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Diamond Hill Investment Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DHIL) today reported unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

The following are selected highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2022:

  • Assets under management ("AUM") were $25.8 billion compared to $31.0 billion as of December 31, 2021, and $32.4 billion as of June 30, 2021.

  • The AUM as of June 30, 2021 included $3.4 billion in AUM related to our high-yield focused advisory contracts which were sold in the third quarter of 2021.

  • Average AUM was $28.2 billion compared to $32.1 billion for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Net client outflows were $515 million, compared to $550 million of net inflows for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Revenue was $39.0 million, compared to $45.1 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Operating profit margin was 52% compared to 39% for the second quarter of 2021. Operating profit margin, as adjusted,6 was 40% compared to 43% for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Investment loss was $17.7 million compared to investment income of $5.9 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Net income attributable to common shareholders was $4.4 million compared to $16.9 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Earnings per share attributable to common shareholders - diluted was $1.40 compared to $5.28 for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Net operating income, as adjusted after tax per diluted share,5 was $3.77 compared to $4.44 for the second quarter of 2021.

  • The Company returned $12.4 million to its shareholders via 69,693 shares repurchased during the quarter and $4.7 million via a $1.50 per share dividend during the quarter.

"Despite the difficult environment during the quarter, our core operating results were resilient," said Heather Brilliant, president and CEO.  "Our net income and corresponding earnings per share were impacted significantly by the market downturn, which resulted in large unrealized losses on our corporate investments. While these seed capital investments may cause short-term volatility in our earnings, we believe they are important for the long-term growth of our business."

Dividends:

The Company announced today that its board of directors has approved the payment of a regular quarterly cash dividend of  $1.50 per share. The dividend will be paid on September 16, 2022, to its shareholders of record as of September 1, 2022.

Use of Supplemental Data as Non-GAAP Performance Measure

As supplemental information, the Company is providing performance measures that are based on methodologies other than U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("non-GAAP"). Management believes the non-GAAP measures below are useful measures of its core business activities, are important metrics in estimating the value of an asset management business, and may enable more appropriate peer comparisons. These non-GAAP measures should not be used as a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and may be calculated differently by other companies. The following schedule reconciles GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures for the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2022, and 2021, respectively.

(1) Gains (losses) on deferred compensation plan investments, net: The gain (loss) on deferred compensation plan investments,
which increases (decreases) deferred compensation expense included in operating income, is removed from operating income in
the calculation because it is offset by an equal amount in investment income (loss) below net operating income on the income
statement, and thus has no impact on net income attributable to the Company.


(2) Net operating income, as adjusted: This non-GAAP measure represents the Company's net operating income adjusted to
exclude the impact on compensation expense of gains and losses on investments in the deferred compensation plan.


(3) Tax provision on net operating income, as adjusted: This non-GAAP measure represents the tax provision, excluding the
impact of investment related activity, and is calculated by applying the unconsolidated effective tax rate to net operating
income, as adjusted.


(4) Net operating income, as adjusted, after tax: This non-GAAP measure deducts from the net operating income, as adjusted,
the tax provision on net operating income, as adjusted.


(5) Net operating income, as adjusted after tax per diluted share: This non-GAAP measure was calculated by dividing the net
operating income, as adjusted after tax, by diluted weighted average shares outstanding.


(6) Operating profit margin, as adjusted: This non-GAAP measure was calculated by dividing the net operating income, as
adjusted, by total revenue.

 

The Company does not recommend that investors consider the above non-GAAP financial measures alone, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
