Net Revenues were $387.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, an increase of 50% compared to $257.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $80.8 million, up 1,419% compared to $5.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Earnings Per Share was $1.76 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, up 1,367% in comparison to the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

The compensation ratio for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was 53.1%, compared to 69.8% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The trailing twelve-month compensation ratio of 59.0% compares to 64.8% for the same period in 2016. These compensation ratios were impacted by our review of the outlook for the Evercore ISI business. See the Business Line Reporting - Discussion of U.S. GAAP Results below.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, Evercore's effective tax rate was 16.2%, compared to 55.9% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily driven by the application of a new accounting standard, effective January 1, 2017, related to share-based compensation, which requires that the tax deduction associated with the appreciation in the Firm's share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above the original grant price be reflected in income tax expense. The effective tax rate is also impacted by the non-deductible treatment of compensation associated with Evercore LP Units/Interests.

Adjusted Results:

Adjusted Net Revenues were $384.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, an increase of 50% compared to $257.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. was $83.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, up 155% compared to $32.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Adjusted Earnings Per Share was $1.61 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, up 156% in comparison to the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

The Adjusted compensation ratio reflects the cost associated with compensation awarded to employees based on their performance consistent with market rates, and the cost associated with the addition of senior professionals. These new hire costs reflect both the number and seniority of the personnel we recruit and have the potential to change the compensation ratio in any period. The Adjusted compensation ratio for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was 59.0%, compared to 57.6% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The Adjusted compensation ratio for the trailing twelve months was 57.6%, compared to 57.8% for the same period in 2016.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, Evercore's Adjusted effective tax rate was 10.9%, compared to 37.5% for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The decrease in the Adjusted effective tax rate was primarily driven by the application of a new accounting standard, effective January 1, 2017, related to share-based compensation, which requires that the tax deduction associated with the appreciation in the Firm's share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above the original grant price be reflected in income tax expense.  Changes in the Adjusted effective tax rate are also driven by the level of earnings in businesses with minority owners.

Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. and Adjusted Earnings Per Share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 were $58.3 million and $1.13, respectively, excluding the effects of the change in accounting for income taxes.

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.

"2017 is off to a solid start, with record first quarter revenues up 50% year over year and record net income and earnings per share for the period. Our Advisory business delivered the best first quarter revenues in our history, and the second best quarterly revenues overall. We continue to invest in the business, extending our global reach with the addition of Waleed El-Amir, a Senior Advisor, who will work with us to expand our presence in the Middle East and Africa from our newly established office in Dubai and Roopesh Shah, who will join our Restructuring and Debt Advisory team in New York as a Senior Managing Director," said Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer. "For Equities, strong equity markets bolstered our ECM activity; however, low volatility created a more challenging secondary revenue environment than has been prevalent in prior quarters. We have carefully reviewed the outlook for our equities business, as we consistently do, and reflecting these market conditions, we have lowered our expectations for Adjusted earnings and, consequently, for the remaining number of contingent shares to be delivered in relation to the 2014 acquisition of ISI. We continue to be strongly committed to this business, as it continues to contribute meaningfully to our revenues and earnings and to the success of our broader Investment Banking business. In the first quarter, we returned $102 million of capital to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases, sustaining our commitment to offset the dilution caused by our annual compensation programs and new SMD hires."

"We are experiencing strong activity levels in each of Advisory, Restructuring and Capital Markets," said John S. Weinberg, Executive Chairman. "As the economy continues to strengthen, we are hopeful that our business will continue to build."

"Market conditions continue to favor sustained, healthy levels of M&A volume. Interest rates remain low, credit availability and business confidence levels are good and equity valuations are relatively high. Historically, such conditions have meant good merger levels," said Roger C. Altman, Founder and Senior Chairman. "Evercore's own business is strong, and we again expect to continue to gain market share relative to our ‎competitors."

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 vested and certain unvested Evercore LP Units and Interests 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 Partners Inc. for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of certain business acquisition-related charges, which were partially offset by the reversal of expenses associated with awards granted in conjunction with certain of the Company's acquisitions.

Acquisition-related compensation charges for 2017 include the reversal of expenses associated with performance-based awards granted in conjunction with the Company's acquisition of ISI. The amount of the reversal of expense is based on the determination that it is no longer probable that Evercore ISI will achieve certain earnings and margin targets in future periods. Acquisition-related charges for 2017 also include adjustments for amortization of intangible assets.

In addition, for Adjusted purposes, client related expenses have been presented as a reduction from Revenues and Non-compensation costs.

Evercore's Adjusted Diluted Shares Outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of the inclusion of Evercore LP partnership units, as well as the assumed vesting of certain LP Units/Interests and unvested restricted stock units granted to ISI employees.

This release also presents changes in Adjusted Net Revenues, Adjusted Investment Management Revenues and Adjusted Investment Management Expenses from the prior-year periods assuming that the restructuring of certain Investment Management affiliates occurred on December 31, 2015. This includes the transfer of ownership of the Mexican Private Equity Business that occurred on September 30, 2016. Evercore believes this is useful additional information for investors because it improves the comparability of period-over-period results and aligns with management's view of business performance.

Further details of these adjustments, as well as an explanation of similar amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and the three months ended December 31, 2016, are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-13.

During the first quarter, Investment Banking earned advisory fees from 163 client transactions (vs. 173 in Q1 2016) and fees in excess of $1 million from 53 client transactions (vs. 41 in Q1 2016).

During the first quarter, Commissions and Related Fees of $49.7 million decreased 13% from the first quarter of last year on lower trading volume. Underwriting Fees of $10.0 million for the first quarter increased 202% versus the first quarter of last year, as we participated in 15 underwriting transactions (vs. 5 in Q1 2016); 3 as a bookrunner (vs. 2 in Q1 2016).

Expenses

Compensation costs were $196.1 million for the first quarter, an increase of 16% from the first quarter of last year. The trailing twelve-month compensation ratio was 59.4%, down from 65.4% for the same period in 2016. Evercore's Investment Banking compensation ratio was 52.9% for the first quarter, down versus the compensation ratio reported for the first quarter of last year of 70.8%.

Compensation costs for the first quarter of 2017 include $4.8 million of expense related to the Class E LP Units and the reversal of $26.2 million of expense related to the Class G and H LP Interests issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI. This expense reversal followed a review of the outlook for the Evercore ISI business where the Company concluded that it would be appropriate to lower the level of earnings and margins that it considers probable of achievement for future periods. Compensation costs included $31.7 million of expense for the first quarter of 2016 related to the Class E, G and H LP Units/Interests issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI based on the probability assumptions in place at that time.

The life to date actual accrued expense related to unvested Class H LP Interests as of March 31, 2017 was $56.3 million, which would be reversed if the actual performance fell below, or is deemed probable of falling below, the minimum thresholds prior to vesting. Conversely, assuming the maximum thresholds for the Class G and H LP Interests were considered probable of achievement at March 31, 2017, an additional $76.1 million of expense would have been incurred in the first quarter of 2017 and the remaining expense to be accrued over the future vesting period extending from April 1, 2017 to February 15, 2020 would be $103.4 million. In that circumstance, the total number of Class G and H LP Interests that would vest and become exchangeable to Class E LP Units would be 4.6 million.

Non-compensation costs for the first quarter were $66.5 million, up 15% from the first quarter of last year. The ratio of non-compensation costs to net revenue for the first quarter was 17.9%, compared to 24.0% for the first quarter of last year.

For the first quarter, Evercore's Investment Management segment reported Net Revenues of $16.5 million and Operating Income of $3.2 million. The Operating Margin was 19.3% for the first quarter.

As of March 31, 2017, Investment Management reported $8.4 billion of AUM, an increase of 6% from December 31, 2016, caused primarily by an increase in AUM at Evercore Wealth Management to $6.8 billion.

On September 30, 2016, the Company completed the transfer of ownership and control of the Mexican Private Equity Business to a newly formed entity, Glisco Partners Inc., which is controlled by the principals of the business.

Investment Advisory and Management Fees of $15.3 million for the first quarter decreased 3% compared to the first quarter of last year, driven primarily by lower fees in Private Equity, partially offset by higher fees in Wealth Management.

Realized and Unrealized Gains of $1.1 million in the first quarter decreased relative to the first quarter of last year, with the change relative to the prior period driven principally by lower gains in Private Equity.

Expenses

Investment Management's first quarter expenses were $13.3 million, a decrease of 7% compared to the first quarter of last year.

(1) Advisory Fees on an Adjusted basis reflect the reduction of revenues for client-related expenses and provisions for uncollected receivables of $6,683, $8,082 and $3,922 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2016, respectively, as well as the reclassification of earnings (losses) related to our equity investment in G5 | Evercore - Advisory of ($149), $1,464 and ($272) for the three months ended March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2016, respectively.

 

During the first quarter, Investment Banking earned advisory fees from 163 client transactions (vs. 173 in Q1 2016) and fees in excess of $1 million from 53 client transactions (vs. 41 in Q1 2016).

During the first quarter, Commissions and Related Fees of $49.7 million decreased 13% from the first quarter of last year on lower trading volume. Underwriting Fees of $10.0 million for the first quarter increased 202% versus the first quarter of last year, as we participated in 15 underwriting transactions (vs. 5 in Q1 2016); 3 as a bookrunner (vs. 2 in Q1 2016).

Within the above results, Evercore ISI, our U.S. equities business, reported Net Revenues of $54.5 million, down 6% from the first quarter of 2016. Allocated U.S. underwriting revenues were $5.0 million for the first quarter and Operating Margins were 15.2%, compared to 19.7% for the first quarter of last year.

Adjusted Expenses

Adjusted compensation costs were $217.5 million for the first quarter, an increase of 58% from the first quarter of last year. The Adjusted trailing twelve-month compensation ratio was 58.1%, down from 58.4% for the same period in 2016. Evercore's Investment Banking Adjusted compensation ratio was 59.3% for the first quarter, up versus the Adjusted compensation ratio reported for the first quarter of last year of 58.2%.

Adjusted Non-compensation costs for the first quarter were $57.4 million, up 14% from the first quarter of last year. The increase in Adjusted non-compensation costs versus the same period in 2016 reflects the addition of personnel within most parts of the business. The ratio of Adjusted non-compensation costs to Adjusted net revenue for the first quarter was 15.7%, compared to 21.3% for the first quarter of last year.

(1) Management fees from Institutional Asset Management on an Adjusted basis reflect the reduction of revenues for client-related expenses of $16, $36 and $23 for the three months ended March 31, 2017, December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2016, respectively.

 

(2) Management fees from Private Equity on an Adjusted basis reflect the reduction of revenues for provisions for uncollected receivables of $206 for the three months ended December 31, 2016.

 

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

 

On September 30, 2016, the Company completed the transfer of ownership and control of the Mexican Private Equity Business to a newly formed entity, Glisco Partners Inc., which is controlled by the principals of the business.

Adjusted Investment Advisory and Management Fees of $15.3 million for the first quarter decreased 3% compared to the first quarter of last year, driven primarily by lower fees in Private Equity, partially offset by higher fees in Wealth Management.

Realized and Unrealized Gains of $1.1 million in the first quarter decreased relative to the first quarter of last year, with the change relative to the prior period driven principally by lower gains in Private Equity.

Equity in Earnings of Affiliates of $1.8 million in the first quarter increased relative to the first quarter of last year principally as a result of higher income earned in the first quarter of 2017 by ABS.

Expenses

Investment Management's first quarter Adjusted expenses were $13.3 million, down 6% compared to the first quarter of last year. Assuming the restructuring of certain Investment Management affiliates had occurred on December 31, 2015, Adjusted Investment Management expenses would have increased 1% when compared to the first quarter of last year.

Balance Sheet

The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, holding cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $414.1 million at March 31, 2017. Current assets exceed current liabilities by $436.7 million at March 31, 2017. Amounts due related to the Long-Term Notes Payable and Subordinated Borrowings were $178.7 million at March 31, 2017.

Capital Transactions

On April 24, 2017, the Board of Directors of Evercore declared a quarterly dividend of $0.34 per share to be paid on June 9, 2017 to common stockholders of record on May 26, 2017.

During the three months ended March 31, 2017 the Company repurchased approximately 1.1 million shares at an average price per share of $77.99.

During the first quarter, after consideration of the market environment in which our equities business operates and the intermediate term cost structure of that business, we reduced the shares we expect to deliver, included in our Adjusted share base, for the 2014 acquisition of ISI from approximately 7.0 million shares to 5.4 million shares.

The total shares available to be granted in the future under the Amended and Restated 2016 Evercore Partners Inc. Stock Incentive Plan was approximately 7.5 million as of March 31, 2017.

Basis of Alternative Financial Statement Presentation

Our Adjusted results are a non-GAAP measure. As discussed further under "Non-GAAP Measures", 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 better reflect management's view of operating results. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation of our U.S. GAAP results to Adjusted results is presented in the tables included in Annex I.

Adjusted Results

Throughout the discussion of Evercore's business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted basis (formerly called "Adjusted Pro Forma"), 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 vested and certain unvested Evercore LP Units and Interests, as well as Acquisition Related Share Issuances and Unvested Restricted Stock Units granted to Lexicon and ISI employees, 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 Vesting of Evercore LP Units and Exchange into Class A Shares.  The Company incurred expenses, in Employee Compensation and Benefits, resulting from the vesting of Class E LP Units issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI, as well as Class G and H LP Interests. In 2017, the amount of reversal of expense for the Class G and H LP Interests is based on the determination that it is no longer probable that Evercore ISI will achieve certain earnings and margin targets in 2017 and in future periods. The Adjusted results assume these LP Units and certain Class G and H LP Interests have vested and have been exchanged for Class A shares. Accordingly, any expense or reversal of expense associated with these units and interests, and related awards, 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 these previously granted equity interests, and thus the Adjusted results reflect the exchange of certain vested and unvested Evercore LP partnership units and interests and IPO related restricted stock unit awards into Class A shares.

2.   Adjustments Associated with Business Combinations.  The following charges resulting from business combinations 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:

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

b.  Compensation Charges.  Expenses for deferred consideration issued to the sellers of certain of the Company's acquisitions.

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

d.  Fair Value of Contingent Consideration.  The expense associated with changes in the fair value of contingent consideration issued to the sellers of certain of the Company's acquisitions is excluded from the Adjusted results.

e.  Gain on Transfer of Ownership of Mexican Private Equity Business.  The gain resulting from the transfer of ownership of the Mexican Private Equity business in the third quarter of 2016 is excluded from the Adjusted Results.

3.   Client Related Expenses.  Client related expenses and provisions for uncollected receivables have been classified as a reduction of revenue in the Adjusted 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.   Special Charges.  Expenses during 2016 related to a charge for the impairment of our investment in Atalanta Sosnoff during the fourth quarter.

5.   Income Taxes.  Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, C-Corporations 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 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 and that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis. This assumption is consistent with the assumption that certain Evercore LP Units and interests 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 presentation can reflect the netting of changes in the Company's Tax Receivable Agreement against Income Tax Expense.

6.  Presentation of Interest Expense.  The Adjusted 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 Investment Banking and Investment Management Operating Income are presented before interest expense on debt, which is included in interest expense on a U.S. GAAP basis.

7.   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 more meaningful presentation.

This release also presents changes in Adjusted Net Revenues, Adjusted Investment Management Revenues and Adjusted Investment Management Expenses from the prior-year periods assuming that the restructuring of certain Investment Management affiliates occurred on December 31, 2015. This includes the transfer of ownership of the Mexican Private Equity Business that occurred on September 30, 2016. Evercore believes this is useful additional information for investors because it improves the comparability of period-over-period results and aligns with management's view of business performance.
