  • Certain compensation and general and administrative costs associated with organizational changes and the wind-down of the Company's US Equity strategies of $5.0 million; and
  • A non-recurring expense related to a potential tax obligation for one of our offshore funds (the “offshore fund expense”) of $1.2 million, for which the Company has indemnified the fund.

Business Update

  • Cash and seed capital5 increased by $20.2 million to $127.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, equivalent to $2.12 per share outstanding
  • Net client cash outflows of $4.3 billion for the third quarter of 2012

Management Commentary

“Although several significant non-cash items pushed our third quarter GAAP earnings into negative territory, our adjusted earnings and adjusted EBITDA remained positive, aided by reductions we have made to our operating cost structure,” said Richard Pell, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer. “We also added to our financial position, ending the quarter with cash and seed capital totaling $127.3 million, which is equivalent to $2.12 per share outstanding.”

“Strategically, we have realigned the business around our expertise in cross-border investing across both equity and fixed income markets, with particular focus on repairing our International Equity track records and growing our highly rated fixed income strategies. At the same time, we continue to concentrate on managing expenses and maintaining the strength of our balance sheet, and remain focused on investing for future growth.”

Third Quarter of 2012 Comparison with Third Quarter of 2011

Assets Under Management and Net Client Cash Flows

Assets under management were $17.7 billion as of September 30, 2012, down $16.6 billion, or 48%, from $34.3 billion as of September 30, 2011, due to net client cash outflows, partly offset by market appreciation.

Net client cash outflows for the third quarter of 2012 were $4.3 billion, driven primarily by net client cash outflows from our International Equity I and II strategies.6

Revenues and Other Operating Income

Revenues and other operating income for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $26.9 million, down 58% from $63.8 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was driven primarily by lower investment management fees of $26.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, down 60% from $65.6 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to lower average assets under management.

Expenses

Employee Compensation and Benefits

For the third quarter of 2012, adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $14.4 million, down 19% from $17.7 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was due primarily to a reduction in costs associated with lower headcount.

GAAP employee compensation and benefits expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $38.0 million, an increase of 34% from $28.4 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to the removal of the service requirement for the remaining unvested RSUs granted at the time of the IPO, partly offset by the reasons noted above and a lower compensation charge related to organizational changes in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the third quarter of 2011.

Shareholder Servicing and Marketing Expenses

Shareholder servicing and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $2.6 million, down 44% from $4.7 million for the third quarter of 2011, driven primarily by lower platform costs, reflecting a decrease in average assets under management in proprietary funds.

General and Administrative Expenses

Adjusted general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $8.7 million, a decrease of 8% from $9.5 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to lower expenses across most categories.

GAAP general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $10.3 million, an increase of 9% from $9.5 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to the offshore fund expense, party offset by the reason noted above.

Non-operating Income (Loss)

Adjusted non-operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $2.4 million, compared to an adjusted non-operating loss of $4.7 million for the third quarter of 2011, primarily reflecting gains on seed capital investments in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to losses in the third quarter of 2011.

GAAP non-operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $144.2 million, compared to GAAP non-operating loss of $6.2 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to a reduction in amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement which is associated with the valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax assets and the reason noted above.

Income Taxes

For the third quarter of 2012, adjusted income tax benefit was $0.3 million, compared to adjusted income tax expense of $11.2 million in the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was due primarily to lower taxable income and a true-up to reflect the finalization of the prior year's tax return.

GAAP income tax expense was $171.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, up from $9.8 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to a valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax assets, partly offset by the reasons noted above.

Assets Under Management

Assets under management were $17.7 billion as of September 30, 2012, a decrease of $3.5 billion, or 16%, from $21.2 billion as of June 30, 2012, due to net client cash outflows, partly offset by market appreciation.

Revenues and Other Operating Income

Revenues and other operating income for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $26.9 million, down 18% from $32.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, driven primarily by lower investment management fees. Investment management fees were $26.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, down 20% from $33.3 million for the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to a decrease in average assets under management.

Expenses

Employee Compensation and Benefits

For the third quarter of 2012, adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $14.4 million, a decrease of 13% from $16.5 million for the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to a decrease in the amortization of deferred incentive compensation awards and a reduction in costs associated with lower headcount.

GAAP employee compensation and benefits expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $38.0 million, an increase of 96% from $19.4 million for the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to the removal of the service requirement for the remaining unvested RSUs granted at the time of the IPO and the compensation charge related to organizational changes recorded in the third quarter of 2012, partly offset by the reasons noted above.

Shareholder Servicing and Marketing Expenses

Shareholder servicing and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $2.6 million, a decrease of 14% from $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to lower platform costs, reflecting a decrease in average assets under management in proprietary funds.

General and Administrative Expenses

Adjusted non-operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $2.4 million, up from adjusted non-operating loss of $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting gains on seed capital investments in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to losses in the second quarter of 2012.

GAAP non-operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $144.2 million, up from GAAP non-operating loss of $1.4 million for the second quarter of 2012 due primarily to a reduction in amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement, which is associated with the valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax assets and the reason noted above.

Income Taxes

For the third quarter of 2012, adjusted income tax benefit was $0.3 million, compared to adjusted income tax expense of $0.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. The decrease was due primarily to a true-up to reflect the finalization of the prior year's tax return.

GAAP income tax expense for the third quarter of 2012 was $171.6 million, compared to GAAP income tax benefit of $0.3 million for the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to a valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax assets and a write-off of deferred tax assets related to the vesting of RSUs granted at the time of the IPO, at a price below their grant date fair value in the third quarter of 2012.

Liquidity and Capital

Words like “believe”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “estimate”, “expect”, “project”, and similar expressions are used to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These forward-looking statements discuss matters that necessarily involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

Fund Performance and Other Disclaimers

Lipper rankings are for Class I mutual fund shares with three- and five-year track records only. Other classes may have different performance characteristics. Lipper, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reuters, provides independent insight on global collective investments including mutual funds, retirement funds, hedge funds and fund fees and expenses to the asset management and media communities. Lipper ranks the performance of mutual funds within a classification of funds that have similar investment objectives. Rankings are historical with capital gains and dividends reinvested and do not include the effect of loads. If an expense waiver was in effect, it may have had a material effect on the total return or yield for the period.

Morningstar rankings are for Class I mutual fund shares with a minimum three-year track record. For each mutual fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a mutual fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. A fund's independent Morningstar Rating metric is then compared against the mutual fund universe breakpoints to determine its hypothetical rating. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely.

Notes to Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Adjusted Consolidated Statements of Operations

 

 

Management believes the Non-GAAP adjustments set forth below provide more meaningful comparisons between periods. Additional information on the reorganization of the Company's ownership structure and the related non-recurring items are discussed in the Company's prospectus dated September 23, 2009.

 
(a)

Adjustments to exclude the amortization expense associated with the RSUs awarded at the time of the IPO from all periods presented, as the granting of the awards was one-time in nature.

 

All periods presented also exclude certain costs associated with organizational changes.
 
(b)

The adjustments to income taxes for all periods presented prior to the Principals' exchanges on April 24, 2012, reflect the tax effect of the assumed full exchange of the Principals' non-controlling interests for Class A common stock on the first day of the respective period, since prior to such exchange, income tax expense excludes the U.S. federal and state taxes for the income attributable to the Principals.

 

All periods presented include adjustments to reflect the tax effects of excluding the amortization expense associated with the RSUs awarded at the time of the IPO and the tax effects of excluding costs associated with organizational changes.

 

The three and nine months ended Sep. 30, 2012 also exclude a valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax assets, and the tax effect of excluding the offshore fund expense and costs associated with the wind-down of the Company's US Equity strategies.

 

(c)

Adjustment to eliminate the Principals' non-controlling interests, which for periods prior to the Principals' exchanges on April 24, 2012 are assumed to be exchanged for Class A common stock on the first day of the respective period.

 
(d)

Adjusted diluted shares outstanding, for periods prior to the Principals' exchanges on April 24, 2012, assumes the Principals have fully exchanged their New Class A Units in Artio Global Holdings LLC for an equivalent amount of shares of the Company's Class A common stock.

 

(e)

Adjusted diluted shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended Sep. 30, 2012 include the dilutive impact of the unvested RSUs which are anti-dilutive under GAAP.

 
(f)

Adjustments to eliminate third party investors' economic interests in the Consolidated Investment Products from both Net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests in the Consolidated Investment Products and Non-operating income (loss). Management believes these adjustments provide a more useful measure for comparing Non-operating income between periods.

 
(g) Adjustment to eliminate the offshore fund expense in the three and nine months ended Sep. 30, 2012.
 
(h) Adjustment to eliminate costs associated with the wind-down of the Company's US Equity strategies in the three and nine months ended Sep. 30, 2012.
 
(i) Adjustment to eliminate non-operating income related to a reduction in amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement.

1.   Lipper, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reuters, provides independent insight on global collective investments including mutual funds, retirement funds, hedge funds and fund fees and expenses to the asset management and media communities. Lipper ranks the performance of mutual funds within a classification of funds that have similar investment objectives. Rankings are historical with capital gains and dividends reinvested and do not include the effect of loads. If an expense waiver was in effect, it may have had a material effect on the total return or yield for the period.
 
For each mutual fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a mutual fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. A fund's independent Morningstar Rating metric is then compared against the mutual fund universe breakpoints to determine its hypothetical rating. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.
