Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2010 Results And Declares Quarterly And Special Dividends; Assets Under Management Rise To Record $10.6 Billion; WHG Funds Assets Increase 66% Year-over-Year To Record $760 Million

Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG) today reported 2010 third quarter revenues of $13.5 million, net income of $2.6 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.38. This compares to revenues of $11.6 million, net income of $2.3 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.32 in the third quarter of 2009. Economic Earnings were $5.0 million compared to $4.3 million for the third quarter of 2009. Economic Earnings per share (“Economic EPS”) were $0.73 per diluted share compared to $0.67 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2009. (Non-GAAP performance measures Cash earnings and Cash EPS have been renamed Economic Earnings and Economic EPS, respectively, and are explained and reconciled with the most comparable GAAP numbers in the attached tables.)

Assets under management were $10.6 billion as of September 30, 2010, an increase of 12% compared to assets under management of $9.5 billion as of September 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 $760 million as of September 30, 2010, an increase of 66% compared to assets of $458 million as of September 30, 2009.

Westwood’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per common share as well as a special dividend of $0.33 per share. Both dividends are payable on December 15, 2010 to stockholders of record on December 1, 2010.

Brian Casey, Westwood’s President & CEO, commented, “We are pleased to have achieved record assets under management of $10.6 billion at September 30, 2010 and to report that the planned acquisition of McCarthy Group Advisors is proceeding as planned. We expect the McCarthy transaction to close during the fourth quarter, resulting in over $1 billion in additional client assets. As McCarthy clients and employees learn more about Westwood, they have expressed confidence in our business model and reputation for excellence. We are excited to deliver a quality experience to McCarthy’s clients and employees and to work together to identify growth opportunities.”
