Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results; Assets Under Management Increase 43% Year-over-year To Record $13.8 Billion; Mutual Fund Assets Increase 98% Year-over-year To Record $1.3 Billion

Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG) today reported 2011 second quarter revenues of $18.9 million, net income of $3.7 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.52. This compares to revenues of $13.2 million, net income of $2.5 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.34 in the second quarter of 2010. The second quarter 2011 results include the impact of a performance-based fee of approximately $991,000. Economic Earnings were $6.7 million compared to $5.2 million for the second quarter of 2010. Economic Earnings per share (“Economic EPS”) were $0.94 per diluted share compared to $0.76 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2010. (Economic Earnings and Economic EPS are non-GAAP performance measures and are explained and reconciled with the most comparable GAAP numbers in the attached tables.)

Assets under management were $13.8 billion as of June 30, 2011, an increase of 43% compared to $9.7 billion as of June 30, 2010. The increase was primarily due to market appreciation of assets under management, the acquisition of McCarthy Group Advisors in November 2010 and asset inflows from new and existing clients, partially offset by the withdrawal of assets by certain clients. Mutual fund assets were $1.3 billion as of June 30, 2011, an increase of 98% compared to assets of $652 million as of June 30, 2010, driven by net asset inflows as well as market appreciation.

Brian Casey, Westwood’s President & CEO, commented, “While market volatility returned in the second quarter, our investment teams produced returns ahead of the corresponding benchmarks for most of the products we manage. We posted record assets under management and generated the highest level of quarterly revenue in our history. Our WHG Funds continue to attract strong net inflows resulting in an organic growth rate for the funds of greater than 50% over the last twelve months.”
