Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. (NYSE: WDR) today reported second quarter net income of $41.7 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to net income of $47.4 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, during the first quarter of 2012 and net income of $50.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, during the same period last year.
The second quarter of 2012 included a pre-tax charge of $5.0 million ($3.1 million net of taxes, or $0.04 per diluted share) to general and administrative expenses to reflect an impairment of certain capitalized software development costs. Our ongoing assessment and changes to our enterprise information technology infrastructure and software resulted in the decision to discontinue the usage of certain capitalized software. Excluding the charge discussed above, general and administrative costs during the quarter would have been $20.0 million, net income $44.9 million, and earnings per diluted share $0.52. We believe supplementing our discussion with these non-GAAP measures provides a more meaningful comparison to other periods. A detailed reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to reported GAAP numbers is included in the table below.
