AMG Reports Financial and Operating Results for the First Quarter of 2013

Company Reports Economic EPS of $2.27; EPS of $1.15

Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (NYSE: AMG) today reported its financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

For the first quarter of 2013, Economic earnings per share (“Economic EPS”) were $2.27, compared to $1.58 for the same period of 2012, while diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2013 were $1.15, compared to $0.71 for the same period of 2012. For the first quarter of 2013, Economic net income was $124.2 million, compared to $83.5 million for the same period of 2012. For the first quarter of 2013, Net income was $62.4 million, compared to $37.4 million for the same period of 2012. For the first quarter of 2013, EBITDA was $175.0 million, compared to $114.1 million for the same period of 2012. (Economic EPS, Economic net income, and EBITDA are defined in the attached tables, along with comparisons to the appropriate GAAP measure.)

Net client cash flows for the first quarter of 2013 were $12.0 billion. The aggregate assets under management of AMG’s affiliated investment management firms were approximately $463 billion at March 31, 2013.

“With strong year-over-year growth in our earnings and record net client cash flows of $12 billion in the first quarter, AMG has had an excellent start to 2013,” stated Sean M. Healey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AMG. “Our Economic earnings per share increased 44% over the first quarter of 2012 – adjusting for the impact of the early realization of performance fees, the increase was 30% – reflecting continued strong organic growth and excellent execution across all areas of our business.”

“This quarter marks AMG’s twelfth consecutive quarter of strong net client cash flows generated by the successful execution of our global distribution strategy and our Affiliates’ excellent investment performance,” Mr. Healey continued. “Our Affiliates’ industry-leading products, particularly in global and emerging markets equities and alternatives, continue to see strong demand around the world, especially given the long-term track records of outperformance at Affiliates such as Tweedy, Browne, Harding Loevner, Genesis, BlueMountain, and AQR. As we continue to enhance the breadth and depth of our global distribution platform, including into additional coverage regions, we see substantial opportunities for our Affiliates to generate new business and win further market share globally.”

“Finally, we continue to make progress with a diverse pipeline of prospective Affiliates around the world,” Mr. Healey concluded. “With our unique competitive position and a favorable transaction environment, we are actively pursuing an array of opportunities across outstanding traditional and alternative firms, and we are confident in our prospects for continued meaningful growth through accretive new investments.”

Notes
(in millions, except per share data)
     
(A)

Under our Economic net income definition, we add to Net income (controlling interest) amortization (including equity method amortization) and impairments, deferred taxes related to intangible assets, non-cash imputed interest expense (principally related to the accounting for convertible securities and contingent payment arrangements) and certain Affiliate equity expenses. We consider Economic net income an important measure of our financial performance, as we believe it best represents operating performance before non-cash expenses relating to the acquisition of interests in our affiliated investment management firms, and it is therefore employed as our principal performance benchmark. This non-GAAP performance measure is provided in addition to, but not as a substitute for, Net income; Economic net income is not a liquidity measure, and should not be used in place of liquidity measures calculated under GAAP.

 

We add back amortization and impairments attributable to acquired client relationships because these expenses do not correspond to the changes in the value of these assets, which do not diminish predictably over time. The portion of deferred taxes generally attributable to intangible assets (including goodwill) is added back because we believe it is unlikely these accruals will be used to settle material tax obligations. We add back non-cash imputed interest expense and reductions or increases in contingent payment arrangements to better reflect our contractual interest obligations. We add back non-cash expenses relating to certain transfers of equity between Affiliate partners when these transfers have no dilutive effect to shareholders.

 
(B)

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. This supplemental non-GAAP liquidity measure is provided in addition to, but not as a substitute for, cash flow from operations. As a measure of liquidity, we believe EBITDA is useful as an indicator of our ability to service debt, make new investments and meet working capital requirements. EBITDA, as calculated by us, may not be consistent with computations of EBITDA by other companies. In reporting EBITDA by segment, Affiliate expenses are allocated to a particular segment on a pro rata basis with respect to the revenue generated by that Affiliate in such segment.

 
(C)

Economic earnings per share represents Economic net income divided by the adjusted diluted average shares outstanding. In this calculation, the potential share issuance in connection with our convertible securities is measured using a “treasury stock” method. Under this method, only the net number of shares of common stock equal to the value of the contingently convertible securities and the junior convertible trust preferred securities in excess of par, if any, are deemed to be outstanding. We believe the inclusion of net shares under a treasury stock method best reflects the benefit of the increase in available capital resources (which could be used to repurchase shares of common stock) that occurs when these securities are converted and we are relieved of our debt obligation. This method does not take into account any increase or decrease in our cost of capital in an assumed conversion. Economic earnings per share is not a liquidity measure, and should not be used in place of liquidity measures calculated under GAAP.

 
(D)

Other includes assets under management attributable to Affiliate product transitions, new investment client transitions and transfers of our interests in certain Affiliated investment management firms, the financial effects of which are not material to our ongoing results.

 
(E)

In the first quarters of 2012 and 2013, we adjusted our estimate of our contingent payment obligations and, accordingly, recorded a gain attributable to the controlling interest of $5.0 ($3.3 net of tax) and an expense attributable to the controlling interest of $8.2 ($5.3 net of tax), respectively.

 
(F)

Our consolidated income tax provision includes taxes attributable to controlling interests, and to a lesser extent, taxes attributable to non-controlling interests, as follows:
