Share:
MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Artisan Partners Asset Management Inc. (NYSE: APAM) (the "Company" or "Artisan Partners") today reported its results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, including net income and earnings per share.

Eric Colson, Artisan Partners' Chief Executive Officer, said, "At Artisan, we have designed our investment culture to allow our talent to thrive. Our autonomous team structure gives our portfolio managers the flexibility to build a team and a process that is uniquely their own. Autonomy also fosters an ownership mentality of responsibility, accountability and a long-term perspective. Within our autonomous teams, we work to manage talent lifecycles so that top talent has space to grow and evolve at Artisan. Our deliberate approach to talent management has helped us to develop and maintain multiple investment franchises. We are excited about developing our newest teams into franchises and continuing to grow our firm over the long term."

Business Update

Mr. Colson added, "As of June 30, 2015, all of our strategies had followed their objectives with integrity and all had positive absolute returns since inception. Eight of our twelve investment strategies (excluding strategies with less than a five-year track record) added value relative to their broad performance benchmarks over the trailing five-year period. Six of our eight strategies with a ten-year track record added value relative to their broad performance benchmarks over that period.

"During the quarter, we continued to experience strong client demand for our Non-U.S. Growth and Global Opportunities strategies. The Non-U.S. Growth strategy had $1.0 billion in net inflows. The Global Opportunities strategy was not far behind with $878 million. The bulk of net outflows were in our mid-cap and small-cap domestic strategies. While relative performance of the U.S. Small-Cap Value and U.S. Mid-Cap Value strategies has suffered during the pro-longed bull market, we believe some of the outflows across all four strategies is part of a larger trend of investors and clients re-balancing portfolios away from the mid- and small-cap domestic sectors where absolute performance has generally been exceptional over the last five years.

"We remain committed to running our business with integrity and long-term discipline. We will stick to what we know. Our business is investments, people and trust. As an active manager, our investment talent will remain the primary driver of our long-term performance. We will continue to work very hard to maintain an investment culture and performance results that create the trust of our talent, our clients and our investors.

"At the end of June we launched our newest investment strategy, the Artisan Developing World strategy. The strategy is managed by Lewis Kaufman, who joined our firm earlier this year to found the Artisan Partners Developing World team. The team's investment process seeks to capitalize on opportunities in developing world economies by investing in companies that compound business value over a market cycle, while mitigating the volatility of returns. The strategy is consistent with our objective of launching new strategies that are driven by investment talent, fit well within evolving institutional asset allocations, reflect increasing degrees of investment freedom, and will be difficult to replicate with passive products."

Assets Under Management Increased to $109.2 billion

During the June quarter, our AUM increased to $109.2 billion at June 30, 2015, an increase of $0.5 billion, or 0.4%, compared to $108.7 billion at March 31, 2015, as a result of $0.8 billion in market appreciation, offset in part by $0.3 billion of net client cash outflows. Compared to June 30, 2014, AUM decreased $2.8 billion, or 2.6%, due to $3.7 billion of net client cash outflows and transfers offset in part by $0.9 billion in market appreciation.

Average AUM for the June quarter of 2015 was $111.4 billion, an increase of 2.8% compared to average AUM for the March quarter of 2015 of $108.4 billion and a 3.0% increase from the average of $108.2 billion for the June quarter of 2014.

June Quarter of 2015 Compared to March Quarter of 2015

GAAP net income was $23.8 million, or $0.50 per basic and diluted share, in the June quarter of 2015 compared to net income of $19.5 million, or $0.43 per basic and diluted share, in the March quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income was $54.4 million, or $0.74 per adjusted share, in the June quarter of 2015 compared to adjusted net income of $47.5 million, or $0.65 per adjusted share, in the March quarter of 2015. The March quarter was negatively impacted by start-up costs related to the addition of our seventh investment team as well as seasonal expenses.

  • Revenues of $211.5 million in the June quarter of 2015 increased $7.9 million from $203.6 million in the March quarter of 2015 primarily due to higher average AUM and one more day in the June quarter.
  • Operating expenses of $133.2 million in the June quarter of 2015 decreased $2.6 million from $135.8 million in the March quarter of 2015 primarily as a result of $6.5 million ($4.1 million net of adjusted provision for income taxes, or $0.06 per adjusted share) of initial start-up costs in the March quarter associated with the formation of our seventh investment team. In addition, the June quarter included lower seasonal expenses of $2.1 million ($1.3 million net of adjusted provision for income taxes, or $0.02 per adjusted share). Seasonal expenses include employer funded retirement and health care contributions, payroll taxes, and non-employee director compensation. The quarter-over-quarter decreases were partially offset by higher incentive compensation in the June quarter, primarily linked to our revenue growth, and an increase in other operating expenses, such as investments in technology and general and administrative expenses.
  • GAAP operating margin was 37.0% for the June quarter of 2015 compared to 33.3% for the March quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted operating margin increased to 42.1% for the June quarter of 2015 from 38.4% for the March quarter of 2015 primarily as a result of the start-up costs and seasonal expenses discussed above. Costs of establishing our seventh investment team negatively impacted GAAP and adjusted operating margins in the March quarter by 320 basis points, and lower seasonal expenses increased the June margins by 100 basis points.

June Quarter of 2015 Compared to June Quarter of 2014

GAAP net income was $23.8 million, or $0.50 per basic and diluted share, in the June quarter of 2015 compared to net income of $19.3 million, or $0.42 per basic and diluted share, in the June quarter of 2014. Adjusted net income was $54.4 million, or $0.74 per adjusted share, in the June quarter of 2015 compared to adjusted net income of $60.0 million, or $0.84 per adjusted share, in the June quarter of 2014.

  • Revenues of $211.5 million in the June quarter of 2015 increased $3.0 million from $208.5 million in the June quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher average AUM.
  • Operating expenses of $133.2 million in the June quarter of 2015 increased $5.5 million from $127.7 million in the June quarter of 2014 primarily as a result of higher revenue-based incentive compensation, increased expenses mainly associated with increased headcount and firm technology initiatives and increased equity compensation expense related to the July 2014 and January 2015 equity grants. Partially offsetting the increases was a $5.5 million decrease in pre-offering related equity compensation expense.
  • GAAP operating margin was 37.0% for the June quarter of 2015 compared to 38.8% for the June quarter of 2014.
  • Adjusted operating margin was 42.1% for the June quarter of 2015 compared to 46.5% for the June quarter of 2014. The decrease in adjusted operating margin was the result of increased equity based compensation expense, increased headcount and investment in technology initiatives. The additional equity compensation expense reduced adjusted operating margin by 230 basis points.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2015 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2014

GAAP net income was $43.3 million, or $0.95 per basic and diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to $27.9 million, or $1.64 loss per basic and diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Basic and diluted earnings per share were negatively impacted in the six months ended June 30, 2014 by our purchase of our preferred securities, which reduced net income available to common stockholders. Adjusted net income was $101.9 million, or $1.39 per adjusted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to adjusted net income of $116.0 million, or $1.62 per adjusted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

  • Revenues of $415.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 increased $4.8 million from $410.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 primarily due to higher average AUM.
  • Operating expenses of $269.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 increased $6.7 million from $262.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 as a result of a $9.1 million increase in equity compensation expense related to the July 2014 and January 2015 equity grants, $6.5 million ($4.1 million net of adjusted provision for income taxes, or $0.06 per adjusted share) of initial start-up costs associated with the formation of our seventh investment team, increased expenses mainly associated with increased headcount and firm technology initiatives, and higher revenue-based incentive compensation. The increase was partially offset by an $18.7 million decrease in pre-offering related equity compensation expense.
  • GAAP operating margin was 35.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to 36.1% for the six months ended June 30, 2014.
  • Adjusted operating margin was 40.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to 45.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2014. The decrease in adjusted operating margin was primarily a result of the increased equity compensation expense and initial start-up costs discussed above.

The Company's management uses non-GAAP measures (referred to as "adjusted" measures) of net income and operating income to evaluate the profitability and efficiency of the underlying operations of the business and as a factor when considering net income available for distributions and dividends. These adjusted measures remove the impact of (1) pre-offering related compensation, (2) offering related proxy expense and (3) net gain (loss) on the tax receivable agreements. These adjustments also remove the non-operational complexities of the Company's structure by adding back non-controlling interests and assuming all income of Artisan Partners Holdings is allocated to the Company. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide more meaningful information to analyze the Company's profitability and efficiency between periods and over time. The Company has included these non-GAAP measures to provide investors with the same financial metrics used by management to manage the Company.

Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company's non-GAAP measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even if similar terms are used to identify such measures. The Company's non-GAAP measures are as follows:

  • Adjusted net income represents net income excluding the impact of (1) pre-offering related compensation, (2) offering related proxy expense, and (3) net gain (loss) on the tax receivable agreements. Adjusted net income also reflects income taxes assuming the vesting of all unvested share-based awards of Class A common stock and as if all outstanding limited partnership units of Artisan Partners Holdings and all shares of the Company's convertible preferred stock had been exchanged for or converted into Class A common stock of the Company on a one-for-one basis. Assuming full vesting, exchange and conversion, all income of Artisan Partners Holdings is treated as if it were allocated to the Company, and the adjusted provision for income taxes represents an estimate of income tax expense at an effective rate reflecting assumed federal, state, and local income taxes. The estimated adjusted effective tax rate was 37.0% and 36.2% for the 2015 and 2014 periods, respectively.
  • Adjusted net income per adjusted share is calculated by dividing adjusted net income by adjusted shares. The number of adjusted shares is derived by assuming the vesting of all unvested share-based awards of Class A common stock, the exchange of all outstanding limited partnership units of Artisan Partners Holdings and the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Company's convertible preferred stock for or into Class A common stock of the Company on a one-for-one basis.
  • Adjusted operating income represents the operating income of the consolidated company excluding offering related proxy expense and pre-offering related compensation.
  • Adjusted operating margin is calculated by dividing adjusted operating income by total revenues.
  • Adjusted EBITDA represents income before income taxes, interest expense and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests, offering related proxy expense, pre-offering related compensation, and net gain (loss) on the tax receivable agreements

Pre-offering related compensation includes the amortization of unvested Class B common units of Artisan Partners Holdings that were granted before the Company's initial public offering, which closed on March 12, 2013.

Offering related proxy expense represents costs incurred as a result of the change of control (for purposes of the Investment Company Act and Investment Advisers Act) which occurred on March 12, 2014. We incurred costs through the first quarter of 2014 to solicit the necessary approvals and consents from the boards and shareholders of the mutual funds that we advise or sub-advise and from our separate accounts clients, which were necessary because of the change of control.

Net gain (loss) on tax receivable agreements represents the income or expense associated with the valuation of amounts payable under the tax receivable agreements entered into in connection with the Company's initial public offering and related reorganization.

______________________________________

1 We measure the results of our "composites", which represent the aggregate performance of all discretionary client accounts, including mutual funds, invested in the same strategy except those accounts with respect to which we believe client-imposed socially based restrictions may have a material impact on portfolio construction and those accounts managed in a currency other than U.S. dollars (the results of these accounts, which represented approximately 8% of our assets under management at June 30, 2015, are maintained in separate composites, which are not presented in these materials).

2 Value-added is the amount in basis points by which the average annual gross composite return of each of our strategies has outperformed the broad-based market index most commonly used by our clients to compare the performance of the relevant strategy. Value-added for periods less than one year is not annualized. The Artisan High Income Strategy may hold loans and other security types that may not be included in the BofA Merrill Lynch High Yield Master II Index. At times, this can cause material differences in relative performance.

3 Developing World Strategy's composite inception date is July 1, 2015, for the purposes of calculating strategy performance. The strategy began investment operations on June 29, 2015.
