(1) Excludes assets under management in liquidity strategies, including in certain open-end mutual funds and institutional accounts

N/M - Not Meaningful

Long-term assets under management increased 3% to $103.3 billion at June 30, 2019 from $99.9 billion at March 31, 2019 as a result of market appreciation and modestly positive net flows. Total assets under management at June 30, 2019 were $105.0 billion, including $1.8 billion of assets in liquidity strategies.

Total sales in the second quarter of $5.1 billion declined 7% from $5.5 billion in the first quarter, which included $0.8 billion of sales related to the issuance of a collateralized loan obligation (CLO) and an initial model allocation for two new exchange traded funds. Institutional sales of $1.7 billion increased 82% sequentially, primarily reflecting the funding of a $0.9 billion global real estate securities subadvisory mandate. Second quarter mutual fund sales of $2.5 billion compared with $3.0 billion in the prior quarter, primarily due to lower sales of fixed income and international equity strategies. Retail separate account sales were $0.7 billion, down 3% sequentially, with growth in the intermediary-sold channel more than offset by a decline in private client sales.

Total net flows of $0.1 billion during the second quarter, compared with net flows of ($0.1) billion in the first quarter, included positive net flows from institutional, retail separate accounts, and exchange traded funds partially offset by net outflows in open-end funds. Institutional had net flows of $0.5 billion due to the funding of several new mandates, partially offset by $0.9 billion of partial redemptions from existing accounts and $0.4 billion of outflows from closed accounts. Net flows in retail separate accounts were $0.3 billion, consistent with the prior quarter, as a modest decline in sales was more than offset by lower redemptions. Mutual fund net flows of ($0.7) billion in the second quarter improved from ($0.9) billion in the prior quarter, with outflows primarily from bank loan strategies.

GAAP Results

Operating income increased sequentially to $30.1 million from $21.0 million, primarily reflecting a 7% increase in revenues due to higher average assets under management and lower employment expenses compared with the seasonally high first quarter. Second quarter operating expenses included $0.3 million of restructuring and severance costs compared with $1.2 million in the prior quarter.

Net income per diluted share of $3.26 included a $0.32 benefit from net unrealized gains on investments, ($0.13) of net realized losses on investments, ($0.11) of acquisition and integration costs, and ($0.03) of restructuring and severance costs. First quarter net income per diluted share of $2.61 included a $0.58 benefit from net unrealized gains on investments, ($0.29) of net realized losses on investments, ($0.13) of acquisition and integration costs, and ($0.10) of restructuring and severance costs.

The effective tax rate of 24% during the second quarter compared with 16% in the prior quarter. The sequential increase reflected lower tax valuation releases related to marketable securities.

Non-GAAP Results

Revenues, as adjusted, of $121.0 million increased 7% from the prior quarter as a result of higher average assets and an increase in the average fee rate. Employment expenses, as adjusted, declined 4% to $57.0 million primarily due to the impact of seasonally higher first quarter expenses. In addition, the sequential change in employment expenses was impacted by lower sales-based compensation, partially offset by higher profit-based incentive compensation. Other operating expenses, as adjusted, increased 3% from the first quarter due to the annual equity grants to the Board of Directors of $0.8 million.

Operating income, as adjusted, and the related margin were $43.7 million and 36%, respectively, compared with $33.5 million and 30%, respectively, in the prior quarter. The increased margin reflected the impact of the seasonally higher first quarter employment expenses as well as higher revenues, as adjusted, in the second quarter.

Interest and dividends earned on cash equivalents and seed capital and CLO investments were $3.8 million, a decline from $4.2 million in the first quarter primarily related to lower CLO interest income.

Net income attributable to common stockholders, as adjusted, which is net of noncontrolling interests, was $3.63 per diluted common share, an increase of $0.90, or 33%, from $2.73 in the prior quarter. The increase primarily reflected higher operating income, as adjusted.

The effective tax rate, as adjusted, was 27%, unchanged from the prior quarter.

(3) Defined as gross debt less cash and cash equivalents

N/M - Not Meaningful

Working capital at June 30, 2019 of $148.7 million increased by 8% from March 31, 2019, reflecting net cash generated from the business partially offset by changes in debt outstanding and return of capital to shareholders.

During the second quarter, the company repurchased 67,709 shares, or 1% of beginning of quarter outstanding common shares, for $7.5 million. In addition, the company net settled 9,753 shares for $1.1 million to satisfy employee tax obligations on restricted stock units.

The company also repaid $12.4 million of debt in the second quarter. The net leverage ratio, which is net debt to EBITDA (in accordance with the company's credit agreement), was 0.7x at June 30, 2019 compared with 0.9x at March 31, 2019.

Non-GAAP Information and Reconciliations
(in thousands except per share data)

The following are reconciliations and related notes of the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure to each non-GAAP measure.

The non-GAAP financial measures included in this release differ from financial measures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as a result of the reclassification of certain income statement items, as well as the exclusion of certain expenses and other items that are not reflective of the earnings generated from providing investment management and related services. Non-GAAP financial measures have material limitations and should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP measures.

Notes to Reconciliations:

   

1.

Distribution and other asset-based expenses - Primarily payments to distribution partners for providing services to investors in our sponsored funds and payments to third-party service providers for investment management-related services. Management believes that making this adjustment aids in comparing the company's operating results with other asset management firms that do not utilize intermediary distribution partners or third-party service providers.

   

2.

Consolidated investment products - Revenues and expenses generated by operating activities of mutual funds and CLOs that are consolidated in the financial statements. Management believes that excluding these operating activities to reflect net revenues and expenses of the company prior to the consolidation of these products is consistent with the approach of reflecting its operating results from managing third-party client assets.

   

3.

Amortization of intangible assets - Non-cash amortization expense or impairment expense, if any, attributable to acquisition-related intangible assets, including any portion that is allocated to noncontrolling interests. Management believes that making this adjustment aids in comparing the company's operating results with other asset management firms that have not engaged in acquisitions.

   

4.

Restructuring and severance - Certain expenses associated with restructuring the business, including lease abandonment-related expenses and severance costs associated with staff reductions, that are not reflective of the ongoing earnings generation of the business. Management believes that making this adjustment aids in comparing the company's operating results with prior periods.

   

5.

Acquisition and integration expenses - Expenses that are directly related to acquisition and integration activities. Acquisition expenses include transaction closing costs, certain professional fees, and financing fees. Integration expenses include costs incurred that are directly attributable to combining businesses, including compensation, restructuring and severance charges, professional fees, consulting fees, and other expenses. Management believes that making these adjustments aids in comparing the company's operating results with other asset management firms that have not engaged in acquisitions.

Other - Certain expenses that are not reflective of the ongoing earnings generation of the business. In addition, it includes income tax expense (benefit) items, such as adjustments for uncertain tax positions, changes in tax law, valuation allowances and other unusual or infrequent items not related to current operating results to reflect a normalized effective rate. Preferred dividends are adjusted as the shares are mandatorily convertible into common shares at the end of three years and the non-GAAP weighted average shares are adjusted to reflect the conversion. Management believes that making these adjustments aids in comparing the company's operating results with prior periods.

Seed capital and CLO investments (gains) losses - Gains and losses (realized and unrealized) of seed capital and CLO investments. Gains and losses (realized and unrealized) generated by investments in seed capital and CLO investments can vary significantly from period to period and do not reflect the Company's operating results from providing investment management and related services. Management believes that making this adjustment aids in comparing the Company's operating results with prior periods and with other asset management firms that do not have meaningful seed capital and CLO investments

Definitions:
Revenues, as adjusted, comprise the fee revenues paid by clients for investment management and related services. Revenues, as adjusted, for purposes of calculating net income attributable to common stockholders, as adjusted, differ from U.S. GAAP revenues in that they are reduced by distribution and other asset-based expenses that are generally passed through to external parties, and exclude the impact of consolidated investment products.

Operating expenses, as adjusted, is calculated to reflect expenses from ongoing continuing operations. Operating expenses, as adjusted, for purposes of calculating net income attributable to common stockholders, as adjusted, differ from U.S. GAAP expenses in that they exclude amortization or impairment, if any, of intangible assets, restructuring and severance, the impact of consolidated investment products, acquisition and integration-related expenses and certain other expenses that do not reflect the ongoing earnings generation of the business.

Operating margin, as adjusted, is a metric used to evaluate efficiency represented by operating income, as adjusted, divided by revenues, as adjusted.

Earnings (loss) per share, as adjusted, represent net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, as adjusted, divided by weighted average shares outstanding, as adjusted, on either a basic or diluted basis.
