LEADERSHIP COMMENTARY

John S. Weinberg, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, "2021 was an extraordinary year for Evercore, showcasing the depth and diversity of our business. This, combined with the outstanding collaboration and teamwork across our firm and robust market activity, led to our record results for 2021, with Evercore exceeding $2.7 billion in Advisory revenues for the first time in our history and up 57% over last year. Over the past few years, we have invested significantly in our platform, both by attracting highly talented individuals and by adding to our broad and expanding platform of capabilities. We are thrilled to have recruited eight Senior Managing Directors in Advisory in 2021 and remain strongly committed to developing talent for internal promotion, recently announcing our largest promotion class ever. Further, as we continue to grow and invest in the firm, we remain committed to returning all capital not required to support our business to our shareholders."

Ralph Schlosstein, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, "We are executing on our long-term growth objectives by continuing to invest in building out the depth of our sector coverage, enhancing our capabilities, and widening the geographies we cover, while focusing intensely on clients, including financial sponsors. Our efforts are being recognized in our financial results, and in 2021, we ranked for the fourth consecutive year number four in advisory fees among all publicly traded investment banks.

With my upcoming transition to Chairman Emeritus in late February, I have been reflecting upon my last 13 years at the firm and take immense pride in the extraordinary growth of the firm and our dedication to excellence, our commitment to our people and the exemplary culture we have built. Our business continues to perform exceptionally well, and as we look ahead, the prospects for Evercore’s long term growth are very real and very exciting."

Roger C. Altman, Founder and Senior Chairman, "Client support for Evercore's values of integrity, excellence, discretion and clients first led to another record year for the firm amidst the continuing challenges of COVID. We are grateful to our clients, to all of our employees and, especially to our outgoing CEO, Ralph Schlosstein, for this special year."

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.

Business Segments:

Evercore's business results are categorized into two segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. Investment Banking includes providing advice to clients on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and other strategic corporate transactions, as well as services related to securities underwriting, private placement services and commissions for agency-based equity trading services and equity research. Investment Management includes Wealth Management and interests in private equity funds which are not managed by the Company, as well as advising third-party investors through affiliates and historically through Institutional Asset Management. See pages A-2 to A-10 for further information and reconciliations of these segment results to our U.S. GAAP consolidated results.

Non-GAAP Measures:

Throughout this release certain information is presented on an adjusted basis, which is a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted 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 certain Evercore LP Units into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed adjusted 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.

Evercore's Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Evercore Inc. for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of certain business acquisition-related and disposition-related charges and Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs. Acquisition-related charges for 2021 include professional fees incurred. Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, in 2021 relate to the write-down of certain assets associated with a legacy private equity investment relationship which, consistent with the Company's current investment strategy, the Company decided to wind down during the third quarter of 2021.

The gain on the redemption of the G5 debt security in the second quarter of 2021 was excluded from Adjusted Net Revenues.

Evercore's Adjusted Diluted Shares Outstanding for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021 were higher than U.S. GAAP, as a result of the inclusion of certain Evercore LP Units and Unvested Restricted Stock Units.

Further details of these adjustments, as well as an explanation of similar amounts for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 are included in pages A-2 to A-10.

Full year Commissions and Related Revenue decreased $0.9 million year-over-year, reflecting lower volatility and volumes compared to the prior year period.

Employee Compensation and Benefits  Fourth quarter Employee Compensation and Benefits increased $51.4 million, or 10%, year-over-year. The fourth quarter compensation ratio was 50.1% versus 54.8% for the prior year period. Full year Employee Compensation and Benefits increased $476.4 million, or 35%, year-over-year. The full year compensation ratio was 56.2% versus 60.6% for the prior year period. The increase in the amount of compensation recognized in both the fourth quarter and full year principally reflects a higher accrual for incentive compensation, higher base salaries and higher amortization of prior period deferred compensation awards, as well as increased headcount year over year, each related to growth in the business. The decrease in the compensation ratio for both the fourth quarter and full year reflects leverage achieved on higher revenues. See "Deferred Compensation" for more information.

Non-Compensation Costs  Fourth quarter Non-Compensation Costs increased $14.8 million, or 17%, year-over-year, primarily driven by an increase in other operating expenses related to charitable contributions made to the Evercore Foundation (formed in 2021) and an increase in travel and related expenses, as travel began to resume during the quarter. The fourth quarter Non-Compensation ratio of 9.0% decreased from 9.3% for the prior year period. Full year Non-Compensation Costs increased $11.3 million, or 4%, year-over-year, primarily driven by increases in professional fees and charitable contributions made to the Evercore Foundation, partially offset by decreases in travel and related expenses and bad debt expense. The full year Non-Compensation ratio of 10.0% decreased from 14.1% for the prior year. The decrease in the Non-Compensation ratio for both the fourth quarter and full year principally reflects leverage achieved on higher revenues.

Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs  Full year 2021 Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, relate to the write-down of certain assets associated with a legacy private equity investment relationship which, consistent with the Company's current investment strategy, the Company decided to wind down during the third quarter of 2021.

In 2020, the Company completed a review of operations focused on markets, sectors and people which delivered lower levels of productivity in an effort to attain greater flexibility of operations and better position itself for future growth. This review generated reductions of approximately 8% of our headcount.

In conjunction with the employment reductions, the Company incurred separation and transition benefits and related costs for certain employees terminated as a result of the Company's review of its operations of $4.1 million and $41.7 million for fourth quarter and full year 2020, respectively, which have been recorded as Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, and are excluded from our Adjusted results.

Fourth quarter and full year 2020 Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, also reflect the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements and certain other fixed assets in conjunction with the expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives of $1.3 million and $3.3 million, respectively, and charges related to the impairment of assets resulting from the wind-down of our Mexico business of $1.7 million.

Effective Tax Rate

The fourth quarter effective tax rate was 23.9% versus 23.2% for the prior year period. The full year effective tax rate was 22.2% versus 23.7% for the prior year period. The effective tax rate is principally impacted by the deduction associated with the appreciation or depreciation in the Firm's share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above or below the original grant price. The full year provision for income taxes for 2021 reflects an additional tax benefit of $18.7 million versus an additional tax expense of $0.02 million for the prior year period, due to the net impact associated with the appreciation or depreciation in our share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above or below the original grant price.

See page 4 for additional business metrics.

Advisory Fees  Fourth quarter adjusted Advisory Fees increased $181.0 million, or 23%, year-over-year, reflecting growth in fee size. Full year adjusted Advisory Fees increased $996.5 million, or 57%, year-over-year, reflecting an increase in the number of Advisory fees earned and growth in fee size.

Underwriting Fees  Fourth quarter Underwriting Fees decreased $30.0 million, or 32%, year-over-year, reflecting a decrease in the number of transactions we participated in. Full year Underwriting Fees decreased $29.5 million, or 11%, year-over-year, reflecting a decrease in the number of transactions we participated in, as well as a decrease in the relative fee size of our participation in those transactions, as we participated in several of the largest deals in our history in 2020.

Commissions and Related Revenue  Fourth quarter Commissions and Related Revenue increased $2.0 million, or 4%, year-over-year, primarily reflecting higher revenues from research subscriptions and convertible securities. Full year Commissions and Related Revenue decreased $0.9 million year-over-year, reflecting lower volatility and volumes compared to the prior year period.

Asset Management and Administration Fees  Fourth quarter adjusted Asset Management and Administration Fees increased $1.6 million, or 8%, year-over-year, primarily driven by an increase in fees from Wealth Management clients, as associated AUM increased 20%, primarily from market appreciation. This was partially offset by a 27% decrease in equity in earnings of affiliates, driven by lower income earned by ABS and Atalanta Sosnoff during the quarter. Full year adjusted Asset Management and Administration Fees increased $11.4 million, or 17%, year-over-year, primarily driven by an increase in fees from Wealth Management clients, as associated AUM increased 20%, primarily from market appreciation.

Other Revenue  Fourth quarter adjusted Other Revenue, net, decreased $0.4 million, or 3%, year-over-year, primarily driven by lower performance of our private equity investments in 2021, partially offset by higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. Full year adjusted Other Revenue, net, increased $12.1 million, or 59%, year-over-year, primarily driven by higher performance of our investment funds portfolio.

Employee Compensation and Benefits  Fourth quarter adjusted Employee Compensation and Benefits increased $51.4 million, or 10%, year-over-year. The fourth quarter adjusted compensation ratio was 49.7% versus 52.3% for the prior year period. Full year adjusted Employee Compensation and Benefits increased $477.5 million, or 35%, year-over-year. The full year adjusted compensation ratio was 55.7% versus 58.9% for the prior year period. The increase in the amount of adjusted compensation recognized in both the fourth quarter and full year principally reflects a higher accrual for incentive compensation, higher base salaries and higher amortization of prior period deferred compensation awards, as well as increased headcount year over year, each related to growth in the business. The decrease in the adjusted compensation ratio for both the fourth quarter and full year reflects leverage achieved on higher revenues. See "Deferred Compensation" for more information.

Non-Compensation Costs  Fourth quarter adjusted Non-Compensation Costs increased $14.8 million, or 17%, year-over-year, primarily driven by an increase in other operating expenses related to charitable contributions made to the Evercore Foundation (formed in 2021) and an increase in travel and related expenses, as travel began to resume during the quarter. The fourth quarter adjusted Non-Compensation ratio of 8.9% increased from 8.8% for the prior year period. Full year adjusted Non-Compensation Costs increased $13.0 million, or 4%, year-over-year, primarily driven by increases in professional fees and charitable contributions made to the Evercore Foundation, partially offset by decreases in travel and related expenses and bad debt expense. The full year adjusted Non-Compensation ratio of 9.9% decreased from 13.6% for the prior year. The decrease in the adjusted Non-Compensation ratio for the full year principally reflects leverage achieved on higher revenues.

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate

The fourth quarter adjusted effective tax rate was 25.2% versus 25.0% for the prior year period. The full year adjusted effective tax rate was 23.8% versus 25.4% for the prior year period. The adjusted effective tax rate is principally impacted by the deduction associated with the appreciation or depreciation in the Firm's share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above or below the original grant price. The full year adjusted provision for income taxes for 2021 reflects an additional tax benefit of $19.5 million versus an additional tax expense of $0.02 million for the prior year period, due to the net impact associated with the appreciation or depreciation in our share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above or below the original grant price.

Liquidity

The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet. As of December 31, 2021, cash and cash equivalents were $575.3 million, investment securities and certificates of deposit were $1.8 billion and current assets exceeded current liabilities by $1.5 billion. Amounts due related to the Notes Payable were $376.2 million at December 31, 2021.

Headcount

As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company employed approximately 1,950 and 1,800 people, respectively, worldwide.

As of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company employed 154(1) and 147(2) total Senior Managing Directors, respectively, in its Investment Banking business, of which 114(1) and 107(2), respectively, were Advisory Senior Managing Directors.

(1) Senior Managing Director headcount as of December 31, 2021, adjusted to include two additional Advisory Senior Managing Directors committed to join in 2022.

(2) Senior Managing Director headcount as of December 31, 2020, adjusted for known departures related to the Company's realignment in 2020.

Deferred Compensation

During 2021, the Company granted to certain employees approximately 2.2 million unvested restricted stock units ("RSUs") (including 1.9 million granted in conjunction with the 2020 bonus awards) with a grant date fair value of approximately $259.6 million.

In addition, during the first quarter of 2021, as part of the 2020 bonus awards, the Company granted approximately $97 million of deferred cash awards to certain employees, related to our deferred cash compensation program.

The Company recognized compensation expense related to RSUs and our deferred cash compensation program of $82.4 million and $344.5 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021, respectively, and $71.9 million and $304.3 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, respectively.

As of December 31, 2021, the Company has approximately 5.2 million unvested RSUs with an aggregate grant date fair value of $511.7 million. RSUs are expensed over the service period of the award, subject to retirement eligibility, and generally vest over four years.

As of December 31, 2021, the Company expects to pay an aggregate of $339.2 million related to our deferred cash compensation program at various dates through 2025, subject to certain vesting events. Amounts due pursuant to this program are expensed over the service period of the award, subject to retirement eligibility, and are reflected in Accrued Compensation and Benefits, a component of current liabilities.

Capital Return Transactions

On February 1, 2022, the Board of Directors of Evercore declared a quarterly dividend of $0.68 per share to be paid on March 11, 2022 to common stockholders of record on February 25, 2022.

During the fourth quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 40 thousand shares from employees for the net settlement of stock-based compensation awards at an average price per share of $146.27, and approximately 1.3 million shares at an average price per share of $140.66 in open market transactions pursuant to the Company's share repurchase program. The aggregate approximately 1.4 million shares were acquired at an average price per share of $140.82. During 2021, the Company repurchased approximately 1.0 million shares from employees for the net settlement of stock-based compensation awards at an average price per share of $118.62, and approximately 4.5 million shares at an average price per share of $135.11 in open market transactions pursuant to the Company's share repurchase program. The aggregate approximately 5.5 million shares were acquired at an average price per share of $132.10.

Adjusted Results

Throughout the discussion of Evercore's business and elsewhere in this release, information is presented on an Adjusted basis, which is a non-generally accepted accounting principles ("non-GAAP") measure. Adjusted 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 certain Evercore LP Units, as well as Unvested Restricted Stock Units, into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted 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 amounts are allocated to the Company's two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. The differences between the Adjusted and U.S. GAAP results are as follows:

1.

  Assumed Exchange of Evercore LP Units into Class A Shares. In prior periods, the Company incurred expenses, in Employee Compensation and Benefits, resulting from the vesting of Evercore LP Units, including those issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI. The Adjusted results assume substantially all Evercore LP Units have been exchanged for Class A shares. Accordingly, any expense associated with these units is excluded from the Adjusted results and the noncontrolling interest related to these units is converted to a controlling interest. The Company's management believes that it is useful to provide the per-share effect associated with the assumed conversion of substantially all of these previously granted equity interests and IPO related restricted stock units, and thus the Adjusted results reflect their exchange into Class A shares.

2.

  Adjustments Associated with Business Combinations and Divestitures. The following charges resulting from business combinations and divestitures have been excluded from the Adjusted results because the Company's Management believes that operating performance is more comparable across periods excluding the effects of these acquisition-related charges:
   

1.

Amortization of Intangible Assets and Other Purchase Accounting-related Amortization. Amortization of intangible assets and other purchase accounting-related amortization from the acquisition of ISI and certain other acquisitions.
   

2.

Acquisition and Transition Costs. Primarily professional fees incurred and costs related to transitioning acquisitions or divestitures.
   

3.

Net Loss on Sale of ECB businesses. The net loss resulting from the gain on the sale of the ECB Trust business and the loss on the sale of the remaining ECB business incurred in the third and fourth quarters of 2020, respectively, is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.
   

4.

Foreign Exchange Gains / (Losses). Release of cumulative foreign exchange losses in the fourth quarter of 2020 resulting from the sale and wind-down of our businesses in Mexico are excluded from the Adjusted presentation.
   

5.

Gain on Redemption of G5 Debt Security. The gain on the redemption of the G5 debt security in the second quarter of 2021 is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

3.

  Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs. Expenses during 2021 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to the write-down of certain assets associated with a legacy private equity investment relationship which, consistent with the Company's current investment strategy, the Company decided to wind down during the third quarter. Expenses during 2020 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to separation and transition benefits and related costs for certain employees terminated as a result of the Company's review of its operations and the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements and certain other fixed assets in conjunction with the expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives, as well as charges related to the impairment of assets resulting from the wind-down of our Mexico business.

4.

  Income Taxes. Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, C-Corporations and a Public Corporation in the U.S. as the ultimate parent. Certain of the subsidiaries, particularly Evercore LP, have noncontrolling interests held by management or former members of management. As a result, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate level taxes and certain other state and local taxes are levied. The assumption in the Adjusted earnings presentation is that substantially all of the noncontrolling interest is eliminated through the exchange of Evercore LP units into Class A common stock of the ultimate parent. As a result, the Adjusted earnings presentation assumes that the allocation of earnings to Evercore LP’s noncontrolling interest holders is substantially eliminated and is therefore subject to statutory tax rates of a C-Corporation under a conventional tax structure in the U.S. and that certain state and local taxes are reduced accordingly.

5.

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

6.

  Presentation of Income from Equity Method Investments. The Adjusted results present Income from Equity Method Investments within Revenue as the Company's Management believes it is a useful presentation.

Reclassifications:

Certain balances in the prior period were reclassified to conform to their current presentation in this release. "Commissions and Related Fees" has been renamed to "Commissions and Related Revenue" and principal trading gains and losses from our institutional equities business have been reclassified from "Other Revenue, Including Interest and Investments" to "Commissions and Related Revenue." For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, this resulted in a reclassification of $375 thousand and $925 thousand, respectively, from "Other Revenue, Including Interest and Investments" to "Commissions and Related Revenue." There was no impact on U.S. GAAP or Adjusted Net Revenues, Operating Income, Net Income or Earnings Per Share.

The prior period reclassifications from "Other Revenue, Including Interest and Investments" to "Commissions and Related Revenue" are as follows: Q1 2020: $185 thousand; Q2 2020: $215 thousand; Q3 2020: $150 thousand; Q4 2020: $375 thousand; Q1 2019: ($2) thousand; Q2 2019: $25 thousand; Q3 2019: $320 thousand; Q4 2019: $249 thousand.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Adjusted Financial Data

For further information on these adjustments, see page A-2.

(1)

 

Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments has been reclassified to Revenue in the Adjusted presentation.

(2)

 

Interest Expense on Debt is excluded from Net Revenues and presented below Operating Income in the Adjusted results and is included in Interest Expense on a U.S. GAAP basis.

(3)

 

The gain resulting from the redemption of the G5 debt security in the second quarter of 2021 is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

(4)

 

The net loss resulting from the gain on the sale of the ECB Trust business and the loss on the sale of the remaining ECB business in the third and fourth quarters of 2020, respectively, is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

(5)

 

Release of cumulative foreign exchange losses in the fourth quarter of 2020 resulting from the sale and wind-down of our businesses in Mexico are excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

(6)

 

Expenses incurred from the vesting of Class J Evercore LP Units issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI are excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

(7)

 

Expenses during 2021 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to the write-down of certain assets associated with a legacy private equity investment relationship which, consistent with the Company's current investment strategy, the Company decided to wind down during the third quarter. Expenses during 2020 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to separation and transition benefits and related costs for certain employees terminated as a result of the Company's review of its operations and the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements and certain other fixed assets in conjunction with the expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives, as well as charges related to the impairment of assets resulting from the wind-down of our Mexico business.

(8)

 

Non-Compensation Costs on an Adjusted basis reflect the following adjustments:

   

(8a)

The exclusion from the Adjusted presentation of expenses associated with amortization of intangible assets and other purchase accounting-related amortization from the acquisition of ISI and certain other acquisitions.
   

(8b)

The exclusion from the Adjusted presentation of professional fees incurred and costs related to transitioning acquisitions or divestitures.

(9)

 

Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, C-Corporations and a Public Corporation in the U.S. as the ultimate parent. Certain of the subsidiaries, particularly Evercore LP, have noncontrolling interests held by management or former members of management. As a result, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate level taxes and certain other state and local taxes are levied. The assumption in the Adjusted earnings presentation is that substantially all of the noncontrolling interest is eliminated through the exchange of Evercore LP units into Class A common stock of the ultimate parent. As a result, the Adjusted earnings presentation assumes that the allocation of earnings to Evercore LP’s noncontrolling interest holders is substantially eliminated and is therefore subject to statutory tax rates of a C-Corporation under a conventional tax structure in the U.S. and that certain state and local taxes are reduced accordingly.

(10)

 

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

(11)

 

Assumes the exchange into Class A shares of substantially all Evercore LP Units and IPO related restricted stock unit awards in the Adjusted presentation. In the computation of outstanding common stock equivalents for U.S. GAAP net income per share, the Evercore LP Units are anti-dilutive.
