Evercore Partners Inc. (the “Company”) was unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Form 10-Q”) for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2006 by November 14, 2006.

The delay in filing the Form 10-Q is the result of the Company performing additional review of the appropriate accounting for transactions in connection with repurchase or “repos” and reverse repurchase agreements or “reverse repos”, entered into by Protego Casa de Bolsa, the Mexican asset management subsidiary of Protego Asesores, the Mexican firm acquired by the Company in August 2006. The accounting matter under review related to Protego Casa de Bolsa’s financial position and results of operations.
