NEW YORK, July 28, 2021 – Evercore Inc. (NYSE: EVR) today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

LEADERSHIP COMMENTARY

John S. Weinberg, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, "Our record second quarter and year-to-date results reflect the breadth and diversity of our capabilities, supported by a positive macroeconomic environment. Our Advisory teams continue to be busy across capabilities and geographies, and this pace of activity translated into revenues – first half Advisory revenues increased more than 50% year-over-year and surpassed $1 billion for the first time. In our Underwriting business, we continue to participate in assignments across diverse industries and our revenues year-to-date increased 11% year-over-year. In Equities, we continue to deliver high quality content to our client base and had a very active quarter with conferences. We are pleased to have three Advisory Senior Managing Directors committed to join Evercore over the next few months to strengthen areas of strategic significance and dialogues with potential recruits remain high. Finally, we are excited to welcome Celeste Mellet to Evercore to help guide our organization through our next stage of growth."

Ralph Schlosstein, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer, "We continued to deliver for our clients, our people and our shareholders throughout the second quarter. The positive economic environment, pressure on business models from technology and energy disruption, strong CEO and Board confidence and record levels of investable capital from sponsors and SPACs led to robust announcement activity. We maintained our #1 league table ranking in the U.S. for announced M&A volumes among independent firms and we continue to have meaningful dialogue with clients on capital raising opportunities and other strategic priorities. This high level of activity is contributing to our strong backlogs. While we have delivered for our clients and produced extraordinary financial results during this period of remote work over the past 16 months, we remain firmly committed to our culture of in-the-office collaboration and apprenticeship. Our teams started to transition back to the office during the quarter and we are looking forward to having more of our teams back in the office over the next several weeks. Lastly, we are back to our pre-pandemic approach to capital return for our shareholders and returned nearly $500 million through dividends and repurchases of 3.3 million shares year-to-date."

Roger C. Altman, Founder and Senior Chairman, "Evercore continued its long standing momentum in the second quarter, as we both increased our market share again and saw strong levels of M&A and capital raising. The Firm’s broader platform, as compared to earlier years, and its exceptional talent, is powering this gratifying strength."

 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. See "Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs" below.

Net Revenues
For the three months ended June 30, 2021, Net Revenues of $687.9 million increased 36% versus the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily reflecting an increase in Advisory Fees of $224.4 million, partially offset by a decrease in Underwriting Fees of $45.5 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Net Revenues of $1.4 billion increased 45% versus the six months ended June 30, 2020, primarily reflecting increases in Advisory Fees and Underwriting Fees of $377.7 million and $12.6 million, respectively, as well as an increase in Other Revenue, net, primarily driven by a shift from net losses of $6.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to gains of $16.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 on our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. See the Business Line Reporting - Discussion of U.S. GAAP Results below for further information.

Compensation
For the three months ended June 30, 2021, compensation costs of $407.8 million increased 22% versus the three months ended June 30, 2020. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the compensation ratio was 59.3% versus 65.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The compensation ratio for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was 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, 2021, compensation costs of $803.2 million increased 33% versus the six months ended June 30, 2020. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the compensation ratio was 59.5% versus 64.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2020. The compensation ratio for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was 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, 2021 principally reflects higher levels of incentive compensation, higher amortization of prior period deferred compensation awards and higher base salaries. See "Deferred Compensation" for more information. The compensation ratio in any given period is subject to fluctuation based, in part, on the amount of revenue earned in that period.

3


Non-Compensation Costs
For the three months ended June 30, 2021, Non-Compensation Costs of $73.1 million decreased 6% versus the three months ended June 30, 2020, primarily driven by a decrease in bad debt expense, partially offset by an increase in professional fees. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Non-Compensation Costs of $145.8 million decreased 9% versus the six months ended June 30, 2020, primarily driven by decreased travel and related expenses, as a substantial number of employees continued to work remotely in 2021, as well as a decrease in bad debt expense, partially offset by an increase in professional fees.

Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs
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 of $8.2 million and $30.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, which have been recorded as Special Charges, Including Business Realignment Costs, and are excluded from our Adjusted results.

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 expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives of $0.4 million and $1.9 million, respectively.

Effective Tax Rate
For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the effective tax rate was 22.1% versus 24.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2020. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the effective tax rate was 19.2% versus 25.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2020. The effective tax rate is principally impacted by the deduction associated with the appreciation in the Firm's share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above the original grant price. The provision for income taxes for the six months ended June 30, 2021 reflects an additional tax benefit of $17.0 million versus $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, 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.

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 six months ended June 30, 2021 was also higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of certain business acquisition-related and disposition-related charges. Acquisition-related charges for 2021 include professional fees incurred.

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

Evercore's Adjusted Diluted Shares Outstanding for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 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, 2020 are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-11. 

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 six months ended June 30, 2020, this resulted in a reclassification of $215 thousand and $400 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.

Other Revenue, net, for the six months ended June 30, 2021 increased versus the six months ended June 30, 2020, primarily driven by a shift from net losses of $6.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to gains of $16.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 on our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program, as well as the gain on the redemption of the G5 debt security in the second quarter of 2021.

The increase in the amount of compensation recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 principally reflects higher levels of incentive compensation, higher amortization of prior period deferred compensation awards and higher base salaries. See "Deferred Compensation" for more information. The compensation ratio in any given period is subject to fluctuation based, in part, on the amount of revenue earned in that period.

Non-Compensation Costs for the three months ended June 30, 2021 were $70.0 million, a decrease of 6% compared to the second quarter of last year. The decrease in Non-Compensation Costs versus last year primarily reflects a decrease in bad debt expense, partially offset by an increase in professional fees. The ratio of Non-Compensation Costs to Net Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2021 of 10.4% decreased from 15.0% for the second quarter of last year. Non-Compensation Costs for the six months ended June 30, 2021 were $139.8 million, a decrease of 9% compared to the six months ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in Non-Compensation Costs versus last year primarily reflects decreased travel and related expenses, as a substantial number of employees continued to work remotely in 2021, as well as a decrease in bad debt expense, partially offset by an increase in professional fees. The ratio of Non-Compensation Costs to Net Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2021 of 10.6% decreased from 16.9% for the six months ended June 30, 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, of 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

Adjusted Other Revenue, net, for the six months ended June 30, 2021 increased versus the six months ended June 30, 2020, primarily driven by a shift from net losses of $6.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to gains of $16.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 on our investment funds portfolio, which is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program.

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 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 Evercore LP Units, as well as 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 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 issued in conjunction with the acquisition of ISI. The Adjusted results assume substantially all of the 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 these previously granted equity interests, and thus the Adjusted results reflect the exchange of substantially all 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.
c.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.
d.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 is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.
e.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 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 expansion of our headquarters in New York and our business realignment initiatives.
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
A - 2    


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, is presented in Other Revenue, 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.
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.

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 six months ended June 30, 2020, this resulted in a reclassification of $215 thousand and $400 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.
