Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2010 Results And Declares Quarterly Dividend; Net Income Increases 53% Year-over-year; WHG Funds Assets Increase 75% Year-over-year

Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG) today reported 2010 second quarter revenues of $13.2 million, net income of $2.5 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.36. This compares to revenues of $10.0 million, net income of $1.6 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.25 in the second quarter of 2009. Cash earnings were $5.2 million compared to $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2009. Cash earnings per share (“Cash EPS”) were $0.76 per diluted share compared to $0.58 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2009. (Cash earnings and Cash EPS are non-GAAP financial measures that are explained and reconciled with the most comparable GAAP financial measures in the attached tables.)

Assets under management were $9.7 billion as of June 30, 2010, an increase of 18% compared to assets under management of $8.2 billion as of June 30, 2009. The increase in assets under management was primarily due to market appreciation of assets under management and asset inflows from new and existing clients, partially offset by the withdrawal of assets by certain clients. The WHG Funds had assets of $652 million as of June 30, 2010, an increase of 75% compared to assets of $372 million as of June 30, 2009.

Westwood’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per common share, payable on October 1, 2010 to stockholders of record on September 15, 2010.

Brian Casey, Westwood’s President & CEO, commented, “Despite a challenging market, we were pleased to see continued net flows in the Subadvisory channel as well as the WHG Funds. Our assets in the five WHG Funds grew over 75% year-over-year and we continue to have positive momentum.”

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, Westwood reported revenues of $26.4 million, net income of $5.4 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.80, compared to revenues of $18.2 million, net income of $2.9 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.43, for the same 2009 period. Cash earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $10.0 million compared to $6.6 million for the same period in 2009, while Cash EPS for the six months ended June 30, 2010 were $1.48 per diluted share compared to $0.99 per diluted share for the same period in 2009.
