Adjusted Pro Forma Net Revenues were $760.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, compared with $638.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Revenues were $214.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, compared with $212.1 million and $186.5 million for the quarters ended December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2013, respectively. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. was $103.7 million, or $2.25 per share, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, compared to $78.0 million, or $1.78 per share, for the same period last year. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. was $33.0 million, or $0.71 per share, for the fourth quarter, compared to $35.3 million, or $0.81 per share, a year ago and $24.3 million, or $0.53 per share, last quarter.

The U.S. GAAP trailing twelve-month compensation ratio of 63.5% compares to 67.0% for the same period in 2012 and 63.8% for the twelve months ended September 30, 2013. The U.S. GAAP compensation ratio for the three months ended December 31, 2013, December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2013 was 61.3%, 62.6% and 63.2%, respectively. The Adjusted Pro Forma compensation ratio for the trailing twelve months was 59.2%, compared to 59.7% for the same period in 2012 and 58.9% for the twelve months ended September 30, 2013.

Evercore’s quarterly results may fluctuate significantly due to the timing and amount of transaction fees earned, as well as other factors. Accordingly, financial results in any particular quarter may not be representative of future results over a longer period of time.

“2013 was another record year, our fifth consecutive year of significant growth in net revenues and earnings. These results reflect the attractiveness of our independent advisory model to clients globally, and the success of our disciplined approach to investment in our business; adding clients, growing market share and expanding the range of advisory capabilities that we provide to our clients,” said Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We had a record year in our advisory business and our early stage businesses were profitable for the quarter and the full year, as the Institutional Equities business continued to grow market share and the Wealth Management business increased assets under management to $4.9 billion. Our operating margins improved to 23.2%; we increased our dividend for the sixth consecutive year and we repurchased sufficient shares to offset the dilutive effect of bonus awards for the fourth consecutive year. Looking ahead, we hope to build on this strong momentum and continue to gain market share in our key businesses and geographies.”

“2013 was a strong year for Evercore as Investment Banking Net Revenues and Operating Income grew by 18% and 22%, respectively, our third consecutive year of growing Investment Banking Operating Income by more than 20% in what has been a generally flat advisory market overall. Our growth reflects the increasing diversity of Evercore’s advisory business, as fee paying clients increased 10%, to 358, and our capabilities in M&A, Restructuring, Equity and Debt Capital Markets and Private Funds Advisory continued to expand. These results reflect the strength of our core advisory business, which gained share in the M&A market for the third consecutive year. We also continued to grow globally, earning 32% of our Investment Banking revenues from clients located outside of the United States,” said Roger Altman, Executive Chairman. “We are well positioned to sustain our positive momentum as we recruited five Advisory Senior Managing Directors in 2013, expanding our capabilities in Latin America and Singapore, and increasing our presence on the West Coast with a new office in Silicon Valley. We began 2014 with 66 Advisory Senior Managing Directors and have since promoted two of our talented Managing Directors, strengthening our position in the energy and utilities industries.”

The U.S. GAAP and Adjusted Pro Forma results present the continuing operations of the Company, which exclude amounts related to Evercore Pan-Asset Capital Management (“Pan”), whose operations were discontinued during the fourth quarter of 2013. See page A-1 for the full financial results of the Company including its discontinued operations.

Throughout the discussion of Evercore’s business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, which is an unaudited non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) measure. Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), and then those results are adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore’s results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore’s operating results. Evercore uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For more information about the Adjusted Pro Forma basis of reporting used by management to evaluate the performance of Evercore and each line of business, including reconciliations of U.S. GAAP results to an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, see pages A-2 through A-11 included in Annex I. These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company’s two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management.

Business Line Reporting

A discussion of Adjusted Pro Forma revenues and expenses is presented below for the Investment Banking and Investment Management segments. Unless otherwise stated, all of the financial measures presented in this discussion are Adjusted Pro Forma measures. For a reconciliation of the Adjusted Pro Forma segment data to U.S. GAAP results, see pages A-2 to A-11 in Annex I.

(2) Realized and Unrealized Gains from Private Equity were $2.8 million and $8.1 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013, respectively, on a U.S. GAAP basis, including the write-off of General Partnership investment balances during the fourth quarter of 2013 associated with the acquisition of Protego.
 

(3) Equity in G5 | Evercore - Wealth Management and ABS on a U.S. GAAP basis are reclassified from Investment Management Revenue to Income from Equity Method Investments.

 

Investment Advisory and Management Fees of $21.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 increased compared to the same period a year ago, driven primarily by higher fees in Wealth Management and Institutional Asset Management.

Realized and Unrealized Gains of $4.3 million in the quarter increased relative to the prior year; the change relative to the prior period was driven principally by Private Equity gains, including carry.

Equity in Earnings of Affiliates of $3.5 million in the quarter increased relative to the prior year and the prior quarter principally as a result of performance fees earned in the fourth quarter of 2013 by an affiliated investment manager.

Expenses

Investment Management’s fourth quarter expenses were $20.0 million, down 1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and 4% compared to the previous quarter, driven principally by lower levels of compensation. Year-to-date Investment Management expenses were $81.8 million, up 4% from a year ago.

Other U.S. GAAP Expenses

Evercore’s Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of the exclusion of expenses associated with the vesting of IPO equity awards and awards granted in conjunction with the Lexicon acquisition, Special Charges, certain business acquisition-related charges and the netting of changes in the Company’s Tax Receivable Agreement with Income Tax Expense. In addition, for Adjusted Pro Forma purposes, client related expenses and expenses associated with revenue-sharing engagements with third parties have been presented as a reduction from Revenues and Non-compensation costs. Further details of these expenses, as well as an explanation of similar expenses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and the three months ended September 30, 2013, are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-11.

Non-controlling Interests

Non-controlling Interests in certain subsidiaries are owned by the principals and strategic investors in these businesses. Evercore’s equity ownership percentages in these businesses range from 51% to 72%. For the periods ended December 31, 2013, September 30, 2013, and December 31, 2012 the gain (loss) allocated to non-controlling interests was as follows:

(1) The difference between the above Adjusted Pro Forma and U.S. GAAP Noncontrolling Interests relates primarily to intangible amortization expense for certain acquisitions, and allocations for discontinued operations, which we excluded from the Adjusted Pro Forma results.
 

Income Taxes

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013, Evercore’s Adjusted Pro Forma effective tax rate was 37.2% and 37.8%, respectively, compared to 37.9% and 38.0% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, respectively.

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013, Evercore’s U.S. GAAP effective tax rate was approximately 53.1% and 46.0%, respectively, compared to 42.7% and 43.9% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, respectively. The effective tax rate for U.S. GAAP purposes reflects significant adjustments relating to the tax treatment of certain compensation transactions, non-controlling interest associated with Evercore LP Units, state, local and foreign taxes, and other adjustments.

Balance Sheet

The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, holding cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $341.9 million at December 31, 2013. Current assets exceed current liabilities (which include $157.7 million of accrued compensation and benefits, which will be paid to employees in early 2014) by $254.9 million at December 31, 2013. Amounts due related to the Long-Term Notes Payable were $103.2 million at December 31, 2013.

Capital Transactions

On January 27, 2014, the Board of Directors of Evercore declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share to be paid on March 14, 2014 to common stockholders of record on February 28, 2014.

During the three months ended December 31, 2013 the Company repurchased approximately 51,000 shares at an average cost per share of $50.14.

Adjusted Pro Forma Results

Throughout the discussion of Evercore’s business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, which is a non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) measure. Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units, other IPO related restricted stock unit awards, as well as Acquisition Related Share Issuances and Unvested Restricted Stock Units granted to Lexicon employees, into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore’s results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore’s operating results. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company’s two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. The differences between Adjusted Pro Forma and U.S. GAAP results are as follows:

1. Assumed Vesting of Evercore LP Units and Exchange into Class A Shares. The Company incurred expenses, primarily, in Employee Compensation and Benefits, resulting from the modification of Evercore LP Units, which will vest generally over a five-year period. The Adjusted Pro Forma results assume these LP Units have vested and have been exchanged for Class A shares. Accordingly, any expense associated with these units and related awards is excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results and the noncontrolling interest related to these units is converted to controlling interest. The Company’s Management believes that it is useful to provide the per-share effect associated with the assumed conversion of this previously granted but unvested equity, and thus the Adjusted Pro Forma results reflect the vesting of all unvested Evercore LP partnership units and IPO related restricted stock unit awards.

2. Adjustments Associated with Business Combinations. The following charges resulting from business combinations have been excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results because the Company’s Management believes that operating performance is more comparable across periods excluding the effects of these acquisition-related charges;

a. Amortization of Intangible Assets. Amortization of intangible assets related to the Protego acquisition, the Braveheart acquisition and the acquisitions of SFS and Lexicon.

b. Compensation Charges. Expenses for deferred share-based and cash consideration and retention awards associated with the acquisition of Lexicon, as well as base salary adjustments for Lexicon employees for the period preceding the acquisition.

c. Special Charges. Expenses primarily related to the write-off of intangible assets during the fourth quarter of 2013 associated with the acquisition of Morse Williams and the exiting the legacy office space in the UK in 2012.

d. GP Investments. Write-off of General Partnership investment balances during the fourth quarter of 2013 associated with the acquisition of Protego.

3. Client Related Expenses. Client related expenses, expenses associated with revenue sharing engagements with third parties and provisions for uncollected receivables, have been classified as a reduction of revenue in the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation. The Company’s Management believes that this adjustment results in more meaningful key operating ratios, such as compensation to net revenues and operating margin.

4. Income Taxes. Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, a C-Corporation and a Public Corporation and therefore, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate-level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to the Adjusted Pro Forma earnings to assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C-Corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates, that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis and that adjustments for deferred tax assets related to the ultimate tax deductions for equity-based compensation awards are made directly to stockholders’ equity. This assumption is consistent with the assumption that all Evercore LP Units are vested and exchanged into Class A shares, as discussed in Item 1 above, as the assumed exchange would change the tax structure of the Company. In addition, the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation reflects the netting of changes in the Company’s Tax Receivable Agreement against Income Tax Expense.

A - 2

5. Presentation of Interest Expense. The Adjusted Pro Forma results present interest expense on short-term repurchase agreements, within the Investment Management segment, in Other Revenues, net, as the Company’s Management believes it is more meaningful to present the spread on net interest resulting from the matched financial assets and liabilities. In addition, Adjusted Pro Forma Investment Banking and Investment Management Operating Income is presented before interest expense on long-term debt, which is included in interest expense on a U.S. GAAP basis.

6. Presentation of Income from Equity Method Investments. The Adjusted Pro Forma results present Income from Equity Method Investments within Revenue as the Company’s Management believes it is a more meaningful presentation.

7. Presentation of Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investment in Pan. The Adjusted Pro Forma results from continuing operations exclude the income (loss) from our equity method investment in Pan. The Company’s Management believes this to be a more meaningful presentation.

The exclusion from the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation of expenses associated with amortization of intangible assets acquired in the Protego, Braveheart, SFS and Lexicon acquisitions.

(10)

Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, a C-Corporation and a Public Corporation and therefore, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to decrease Evercore’s effective tax rate to approximately 37% and 38% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013, respectively. These adjustments assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C-Corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates, that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis and that, historically, adjustments for deferred tax assets related to the ultimate tax deductions for equity-based compensation awards are made directly to stockholders’ equity. In addition, the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation reflects the netting of changes in the Company’s Tax Receivable Agreement against Income Tax Expense.

(11)

Reflects adjustment to eliminate noncontrolling interest related to all Evercore LP partnership units which are assumed to be converted to Class A common stock in the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation.

(12a)

Assumes the vesting of all Evercore LP partnership units and IPO related restricted stock unit awards in the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation. In the computation of outstanding common stock equivalents for U.S. GAAP net income per share, the unvested Evercore LP partnership units are anti-dilutive.

(12b)

Assumes the vesting of all Acquisition Related Share Issuance and Unvested Restricted Stock Units granted to Lexicon employees in the Adjusted Pro Forma presentation. In the computation of outstanding common stock equivalents for U.S. GAAP, these Shares and Restricted Stock Units are reflected using the Treasury Stock Method.
