LEADERSHIP COMMENTARY

Ralph Schlosstein, President, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, "Our results for the second quarter and first half of 2020 demonstrate our ability to support our clients broadly in challenging economic and financial markets. We are particularly pleased with our team's ability to assist clients in raising strategic capital, advising on several of the largest transactions of the year and leading to record quarterly and year-to-date underwriting revenues. Restructuring and debt advisory activity remains high, as does client engagement with our macro and fundamental research teams."

Schlosstein continued, "We remain focused on our cost management initiatives and, despite the more challenging environment, we were able to deliver a 20% Adjusted operating margin for the second quarter, a sequential increase of 100 basis points. Our cash position and our balance sheet remain strong and our capital return strategies remain on track."

John S. Weinberg, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, "Our diverse capabilities and the breadth of our platform allowed our teams to work closely with our clients to address their immediate liquidity, capital and financial management needs, including the execution of several innovative assignments, during the quarter. We continue to have strong and healthy dialogues with our clients, which are beginning slowly to include preparation for opportunities and strategic transactions that will be possible in the recovery."

Weinberg continued, "Our success is made possible by our exceptional team. We are proud of how well our people have responded to the challenges of the predominantly remote working environment and we are incredibly pleased with our ability to interact with and serve our clients."

Roger C. Altman, Founder and Senior Chairman, "While there are still some headwinds in the merger market, the Evercore model is proving to be a resilient one for clients. The Firm's independence, as well as our expanded ability to raise capital, is particularly valuable in this environment."

(1) Operating Income includes Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, of $8.6 million recognized in the Investment Banking segment for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and $32.2 million and $0.1 million recognized in the Investment Banking and Investment Management segment, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Operating Income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 includes Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, of $1.0 million and $2.1 million, respectively, recognized in the Investment Banking segment. See "Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs" below and page 9 for further information.

Net Revenues

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, Net Revenues of $507.1 million decreased 5% versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Advisory Fees of $107.1 million, partially offset by increases in Underwriting Fees and Commissions and Related Fees of $76.7 million and $5.5 million, respectively, and higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, Net Revenues of $934.1 million decreased 1% versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Advisory Fees of $74.4 million and lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and legacy private equity investments. These decreases were partially offset by increases in Underwriting Fees and Commissions and Related Fees of $70.9 million and $18.9 million, respectively. See the Business Line Reporting - Discussion of U.S. GAAP Results below for further information.

Compensation

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the compensation ratio was 65.9% versus 59.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The compensation ratio for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is 67.5% when the $8.2 million of separation and transition benefits expense, which is presented within Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, is also included. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the compensation ratio was 64.7% versus 59.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The compensation ratio for the six months ended June 30, 2020 is 68.0% when the $30.2 million of separation and transition benefits expense, which is presented within Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, is also included. See "Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs" below for further information. The increase in the amount of compensation recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 is driven by higher levels of incentive compensation, higher base salaries, primarily due to promotions, and the amortization of unvested share-based and deferred cash awards. The resulting compensation ratios are higher than the comparable periods for 2019 due to these increases, as well as lower Other Revenue earned during the six months ended June 30, 2020 resulting from lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and legacy private equity investments. The compensation ratio in any given period is subject to fluctuation based, in part, on the amount of revenue earned in that period. See pages 7 and 8 for discussion of the potential impact of COVID-19.

Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs

In the first quarter of 2020, the Company substantially completed a review of operations focused on markets, sectors and people which have delivered lower levels of productivity in an effort to attain greater flexibility of operations and better position itself for future growth.

This review, which began in the fourth quarter of 2019, will generate reductions of approximately 6% of our headcount. In conjunction with the employment reductions, the Company expects to incur separation and transition benefits and related costs of approximately $38 million, $30.3 million of which has been recorded as Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, in the first six months of 2020 and are excluded from our Adjusted results. The Company believes these actions will best position it to continue to provide clients with the highest quality of independent advice while delivering value to our shareholders.

We have entered into an agreement for the leaders of our business in Mexico to purchase Evercore Casa de Bolsa, S.A. de C.V., our Mexico based broker-dealer focused principally on providing Investment Management services. We continue to review additional opportunities in smaller markets. These opportunities could result in further charges in 2020 if pursued to completion.

The Company's estimates of charges are based on a number of assumptions. Actual results may differ materially if actual activity deviates from these assumptions.

Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 also reflect the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements and certain other fixed assets in conjunction with the previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives of $0.4 million and $1.9 million, respectively. Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflect the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements in conjunction with the previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York.

Operating Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, Operating Income of $86.7 million decreased 32% versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Investment Banking revenue and an increase in operating costs and Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, partially offset by higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, Operating Income of $136.0 million decreased 35% versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Investment Banking Net Revenues, including lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and an increase in operating costs and Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs. See the Business Line Reporting - Discussion of U.S. GAAP Results below for further information.

Effective Tax Rate

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the effective tax rate was 24.5% versus 24.8% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the effective tax rate was 25.0% versus 18.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The effective tax rate is impacted by the non-deductible treatment of compensation associated with Evercore LP Units, as well as 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.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, Net Income Attributable to Evercore Inc. and Earnings Per Share of $56.4 million and $1.35, respectively, decreased 31% and 28%, respectively, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, principally driven by a decrease in Investment Banking revenue and an increase in operating costs and Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, partially offset by higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, Net Income Attributable to Evercore Inc. and Earnings Per Share of $87.6 million and $2.08, respectively, decreased 41% and 39%, respectively, versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, principally driven by a decrease in Investment Banking Net Revenues, including lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and an increase in operating costs and Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs. The decrease was also driven in part by a higher effective tax rate.

Adjusted Net Revenues

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, Adjusted Net Revenues of $513.9 million decreased 4% versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Advisory Fees of $107.3 million, partially offset by increases in Underwriting Fees and Commissions and Related Fees of $76.7 million and $5.5 million, respectively, and higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, Adjusted Net Revenues of $948.9 million decreased 1% versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Advisory Fees of $74.3 million and lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and legacy private equity investments. These decreases were partially offset by increases in Underwriting Fees and Commissions and Related Fees of $70.9 million and $18.9 million, respectively. See the Business Line Reporting - Discussion of Adjusted Results below for further information.

Adjusted Compensation

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Adjusted compensation ratio was 65.0% versus 58.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Adjusted compensation ratio was 63.6% versus 58.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in the amount of Adjusted compensation recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 is driven by higher levels of incentive compensation, higher base salaries, primarily due to promotions, and the amortization of unvested share-based and deferred cash awards. The resulting Adjusted compensation ratios are higher than the comparable periods for 2019 due to these increases, as well as lower Other Revenue earned during the six months ended June 30, 2020 resulting from lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and legacy private equity investments. The Adjusted compensation ratio in any given period is subject to fluctuation based, in part, on the amount of revenue earned in that period. See pages 7 and 8 for discussion of the potential impact of COVID-19.

Adjusted Operating Income

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, Adjusted Operating Income of $102.7 million decreased 26% compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Investment Banking revenue and an increase in operating costs, partially offset by higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, Adjusted Operating Income of $185.3 million decreased 21% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in Investment Banking Net Revenues, including lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and an increase in operating costs. See the Business Line Reporting - Discussion of Adjusted Results below for further information.

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Adjusted effective tax rate was 26.2% versus 25.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Adjusted effective tax rate was 25.6% versus 19.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The Adjusted effective tax rate is 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.

Adjusted Net Income and Earnings Per Share

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Evercore Inc. and Adjusted Earnings Per Share of $71.8 million and $1.53, respectively, decreased 29% and 26%, respectively, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, principally driven by a decrease in Investment Banking revenue and an increase in operating costs, partially offset by higher performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. The decrease was also driven in part by a higher effective tax rate.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Evercore Inc. and Adjusted Earnings Per Share of $129.6 million and $2.74, respectively, decreased 29% and 27%, respectively, versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, principally driven by a decrease in Investment Banking Net Revenues, including lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, and an increase in operating costs. The decrease was also driven in part by a higher effective tax rate.

Adjusted Operating Expenses

Adjusted Operating Expenses exclude adjustments relating to Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, as described in more detail on page 4.

COVID-19 Update

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has continued to have, and is expected to continue having, a significant negative effect on our business. During these unprecedented times, we have continued to operate our business while prioritizing our people, our clients, our shareholders and our communities, and we are doing our part to continue reducing the spread of COVID-19. The health, safety and wellness of our employees and their families remains our top priority. We are progressing with our plans for returning to office based on conditions and guidance in the applicable local market, although currently the substantial majority of our employees are working from home, including senior corporate and business leaders.

Within the current environment caused by COVID-19, we have seen a significant decline in global and domestic M&A transactions, and a prolonging of transaction closings as the conditions typically required for global and domestic M&A are generally not present. Accordingly, we have pivoted our services to meet the evolving priorities and needs of our clients. While we observed an initial decline in equity underwriting activity during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, subsequently our equity underwriting activity levels have meaningfully increased. Our restructuring, debt advisory and capital markets advisory businesses remain very active, and the volatility and increased volume in the equity markets have allowed our Equities business to maintain elevated levels of secondary revenues. However, as we have previously indicated, given that these businesses produce less revenue than our M&A advisory business, the increased activity will not be sufficient to offset weakness in M&A activity.

At this time, it is uncertain how long our business will be negatively impacted by COVID-19 and any associated economic and market downturn. Although we anticipate that the decline in revenue will have a significant impact on our results of operations and cash flows, it is uncertain at this time how significant that impact will be. The degree of the impact will likely be directly correlated to the length and depth of any economic slowdown and the speed of any recovery. Market access to working capital, access to both short-term and long-term financing and/or the ability to raise capital will be impacted, and may be impacted significantly, during any resulting periods of economic distress. Our ability to fund operations, make capital investments, maintain compliance with our debt covenants and fund shareholder dividends and other capital commitments or stock repurchases may be adversely affected, depending on the length and depth of any disruption. We continue to monitor our cash levels, liquidity, regulatory capital requirements, debt covenants and our other contractual obligations regularly. This includes focusing on client billing activity, accounts receivable collections and cost management initiatives. Management is also carefully reviewing decisions related to capital projects and returning capital to investors, such as purchasing outstanding shares and dividend recommendations to the Board of Directors.

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.

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 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 six months ended June 30, 2020 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of the exclusion of expenses associated with awards granted in conjunction with certain of the Company's acquisitions, and certain other business acquisition-related charges and Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs.

Acquisition-related compensation charges for 2020 include expenses associated with awards granted in conjunction with the Company's acquisition of ISI. Acquisition-related charges for 2020 also include professional fees incurred and amortization of intangible assets.

Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, for 2020 relate to separation and transition benefits and related costs 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 previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives.

Evercore's Adjusted Diluted Shares Outstanding for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 were higher than U.S. GAAP, as a result of the inclusion of certain Evercore LP Units.

Further details of these adjustments, as well as an explanation of similar amounts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-11.

Revenues

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, fees from Advisory services decreased $107.1 million, or 24%, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, reflecting a decrease in the number of Advisory fees earned and a decline in revenue earned from large transactions. Underwriting Fees of $93.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $76.7 million, or 453%, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, as we closed several of the largest deals in our history. We participated in 36 underwriting transactions during the three months ended June 30, 2020 (vs. 16 in Q2 2019); 21 as a bookrunner (vs. 10 in Q2 2019). Commissions and Related Fees for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $5.5 million, or 11%, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, as volatility remained elevated during 2020. See COVID-19 Update on pages 7 and 8 for further information.

During the six months ended June 30, 2020, fees from Advisory services decreased $74.4 million, or 10%, versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, reflecting a decrease in the number of Advisory fees earned and a decline in revenue earned from large transactions. Underwriting Fees of $114.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 increased $70.9 million, or 162%, versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, as we closed several of the largest deals in our history. We participated in 48 underwriting transactions during the six months ended June 30, 2020 (vs. 39 in 2019); 29 as a bookrunner (vs. 27 in 2019). Commissions and Related Fees for the six months ended June 30, 2020 increased $18.9 million, or 21%, versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, as volatility remained elevated during 2020. See COVID-19 Update on pages 7 and 8 for further information.

Other Revenue, net, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily reflecting gains on the investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, as the market rebounded during the quarter. Other Revenue, net for the six months ended June 30, 2020 decreased versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily reflecting net losses of $6.8 million on the investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program.

Expenses

Compensation costs were $325.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, an increase of 6% from the second quarter of last year. The compensation ratio was 65.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 59.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The compensation ratio for the three months ended June 30, 2020 is 67.4% when the $8.2 million of separation and transition benefits expense, which is presented within Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, is also included. Compensation costs were $587.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, an increase of 8% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The compensation ratio was 64.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 59.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The compensation ratio for the six months ended June 30, 2020 is 68.0% when the $30.1 million of separation and transition benefits expense, which is presented within Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, is also included. See page 4 for further information. The increase in the amount of compensation recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 is driven by higher levels of incentive compensation, higher base salaries, primarily due to promotions, and the amortization of unvested share-based and deferred cash awards. The resulting compensation ratios are higher than the comparable periods for 2019 due to these increases, as well as lower Other Revenue earned during the six months ended June 30, 2020 resulting from lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. The compensation ratio in any given period is subject to fluctuation based, in part, on the amount of revenue earned in that period. See pages 7 and 8 for discussion of the potential impact of COVID-19.

Non-compensation Costs for the three months ended June 30, 2020 were $74.4 million, a decrease of 13% compared to the second quarter of last year. Non-compensation Costs versus last year primarily reflects decreased travel and related expenses, partially offset by increased bad debt expense. The ratio of Non-compensation Costs to Net Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2020 of 15.0% decreased from 16.5% for the second quarter of last year, primarily driven by decreased travel and related expenses in 2020. Non-compensation Costs for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $153.8 million, a decrease of 6% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in Non-compensation Costs versus last year reflects decreased travel and related expenses and professional fees, partially offset by increased bad debt expense. The ratio of Non-compensation Costs to Net Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2020 of 16.9% decreased from 17.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by decreased travel and related expenses and professional fees in 2020.

Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 reflect $8.2 million and $30.3 million, respectively, for separation and transition benefits and related costs as a result of the Company's review of its operations and $0.4 million and $1.9 million, respectively, for the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements and certain other fixed assets in conjunction with the previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives. See page 4 for further information. Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 reflect the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements in conjunction with the previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York.

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, fees from Advisory services decreased $107.3 million, or 24%, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, reflecting a decrease in the number of Advisory fees earned and a decline in revenue earned from large transactions. Underwriting Fees of $93.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $76.7 million, or 453%, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, as we closed several of the largest deals in our history.

Commissions and Related Fees for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $5.5 million, or 11%, versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, as volatility remained elevated during 2020. See COVID-19 Update on pages 7 and 8 for further information.

During the six months ended June 30, 2020, fees from Advisory services decreased $74.3 million, or 10%, versus the six months ended June 30, 2019, reflecting a decrease in the number of Advisory fees earned and a decline in revenue earned from large transactions.

Other Revenue, net, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased versus the three months ended June 30, 2019, primarily reflecting gains on the investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, as the market rebounded during the quarter.

Adjusted Expenses

Adjusted compensation costs were $325.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, an increase of 8% from the second quarter of last year. The Adjusted compensation ratio was 65.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 58.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. Adjusted compensation costs were $586.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, an increase of 9% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. The Adjusted compensation ratio was 63.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 58.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The increase in the amount of Adjusted compensation recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 is driven by higher levels of incentive compensation, higher base salaries, primarily due to promotions, and the amortization of unvested share-based and deferred cash awards. The resulting Adjusted compensation ratios are higher than the comparable periods for 2019 due to these increases, as well as lower Other Revenue earned during the six months ended June 30, 2020 resulting from lower performance of our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. The Adjusted compensation ratio in any given period is subject to fluctuation based, in part, on the amount of revenue earned in that period. See pages 7 and 8 for discussion of the potential impact of COVID-19.

Adjusted Non-compensation Costs for the three months ended June 30, 2020 were $73.8 million, a decrease of 11% from the second quarter of last year. The decrease in Adjusted Non-compensation Costs versus last year primarily reflects decreased travel and related expenses, partially offset by increased bad debt expense. The ratio of Adjusted Non-compensation Costs to Adjusted Net Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2020 of 14.8% decreased from 16.0% for the second quarter of last year, primarily driven by decreased travel and related expenses in 2020. Adjusted Non-compensation Costs for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $152.6 million, a decrease of 5% from the six months ended June 30, 2019. The decrease in Non-compensation Costs versus last year reflects decreased travel and related expenses and professional fees, partially offset by increased bad debt expense. The ratio of Adjusted Non-compensation Costs to Adjusted Net Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2020 of 16.6% decreased from 17.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2019, primarily driven by decreased travel and related expenses and professional fees in 2020.

(1) Equity in ABS and Atalanta Sosnoff on a U.S. GAAP basis are reclassified from Asset Management and Administration Fees to Income from Equity Method Investments.

Adjusted Asset Management and Administration Fees of $15.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased 4% compared to the second quarter of last year, principally driven by an increase in fees from Wealth Management clients, which increased 7% compared to the second quarter of last year, as associated AUM increased 9%.

Equity in Earnings of Affiliates of $2.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased 1% relative to the second quarter of last year, driven principally by higher income earned in the second quarter of 2020 by Atalanta Sosnoff.

Adjusted Asset Management and Administration Fees of $30.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 increased 5% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019, principally driven by an increase in fees from Wealth Management clients, which increased 7% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019, as associated AUM increased 9%.

Equity in Earnings of Affiliates of $4.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 increased 16% relative to the six months ended June 30, 2019, driven principally by higher income earned by Atalanta Sosnoff and ABS in 2020.

Adjusted Expenses

Investment Management's Adjusted expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2020 were $11.7 million, a decrease of 2% compared to the second quarter of last year, due to a decrease in both compensation and non-compensation costs. Investment Management's Adjusted expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $24.4 million, an increase of 1% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019, due to an increase in both compensation and non-compensation costs.

Liquidity

The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, holding cash and cash equivalents of $1.0 billion and investment securities of $99.7 million at June 30, 2020. Current assets exceed current liabilities by $951.1 million at June 30, 2020. Amounts due related to the Notes Payable were $373.1 million at June 30, 2020.

Deferred Compensation

During the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company granted to certain employees approximately 1.9 million unvested RSUs. In June 2020, the Company's stockholders approved the Amended and Restated 2016 Evercore Inc. Stock Incentive Plan (the "Amended 2016 Plan"). The total shares available to be granted in the future under the Amended 2016 Plan was approximately 7.0 million as of June 30, 2020.

The Company recognized compensation expense related to our deferred cash compensation program and restricted stock units of $35.6 million and $50.2 million, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and $57.9 million and $100.5 million, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2020. The Company recognized compensation expense related to our deferred cash compensation program and restricted stock units of $18.2 million and $56.5 million, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and $35.5 million and $112.1 million, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which reflect our current views with respect to, among other things, Evercore's operations and financial performance. In some cases, you can identify these forward-looking statements by the use of words such as "outlook," "backlog," "believes," "expects," "potential," "probable," "continues," "may," "will," "should," "seeks," "approximately," "predicts," "intends," "plans," "estimates," "anticipates" or the negative version of these words or other comparable words. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included in this presentation are forward-looking statements, including with respect to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, and are based on various underlying assumptions and expectations and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions, and may include projections of our future financial performance based on our growth strategies and anticipated trends in Evercore's business. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. Evercore believes these factors include, but are not limited to, those described under "Risk Factors" discussed in Evercore's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K and Registration Statements. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this release, including those statements herein with respect to the negative effect that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our business and is expected to continue to have on our business, which we expect to be significant. At this time, it is uncertain how long our business will be negatively impacted by COVID-19 and the associated economic and market downturn. In addition, new risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for Evercore to predict all risks and uncertainties, nor can Evercore assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, you should not rely upon forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results and Evercore does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any of these forward-looking statements. Evercore undertakes no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Adjusted Results

Throughout the discussion of Evercore's business segments 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 vested and unvested Class A Evercore LP Units, as well as Acquisition Related Class E and J Evercore LP Units and Unvested Restricted Stock Units granted to 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 and Class J Evercore LP Units issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI. The Adjusted 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 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 vested and unvested Class A and E Evercore LP Units and IPO related restricted stock unit awards 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:

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

3. Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs. Expenses during 2020 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to separation and transition benefits and related costs 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 previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives. Expenses during 2019 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements in conjunction with the previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York.

4. 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 is subject to the statutory tax rates of a C-Corporation under a conventional corporate tax structure 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 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.

5. 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.

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 more meaningful presentation.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Adjusted Financial Data

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

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

(4) Expenses during 2020 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to separation and transition benefits and related costs 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 previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives. Expenses during 2019 that are excluded from the Adjusted presentation relate to the acceleration of depreciation expense for leasehold improvements in conjunction with the previously announced expansion of our headquarters in New York.

(5a) 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.

(5b) Primarily the exclusion from the Adjusted presentation of professional fees incurred and costs related to transitioning acquisitions or divestitures.

(6) 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 is subject to the statutory tax rates of a C-Corporation under a conventional corporate tax structure 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 are vested and exchanged into Class A shares, as the assumed exchange would change the tax structure of the Company.

(7) Reflects an 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 presentation.

(8) Assumes the vesting, and exchange into Class A shares, of Class A and E 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.
