Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results And Increases Quarterly Dividend; Assets Under Management Increase 21% Year-over-year To Record $14.1 Billion; Mutual Fund Assets Increase 46% Year-over-year To Record $1.6 Billion

Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG) today reported third quarter 2012 revenues of $18.9 million, net income of $2.5 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.34. This compares to revenues of $16.0 million, net income of $3.3 million and earnings per diluted share of $0.46 in the third quarter 2011. Economic Earnings were $5.6 million compared to $5.9 million for the third quarter 2011. Economic Earnings per share (“Economic EPS”) were $0.76 per diluted share compared to $0.81 per diluted share for the third quarter 2011. (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.)

Third quarter 2012 results reflect the start-up phase of Westwood International Advisors Inc., our new Toronto-based subsidiary launched in the second quarter 2012 to manage Emerging Markets and Global Equities strategies. Westwood International now has eleven full-time employees and began managing assets for external clients during the third quarter. This launch timing meant that third quarter 2012 results reflected significant costs with little offsetting revenue thus far. As of September 30, 2012, Westwood International had total assets under management of $740 million, comprised of $486 million of external client assets and $254 million in Westwood Trust common trust fund assets.

Assets under management were $14.1 billion as of September 30, 2012, an increase of 21% compared to $11.7 billion as of September 30, 2011 primarily due to market appreciation and inflows from new and existing clients, partially offset by asset outflows from certain clients. Mutual fund assets totaled $1.6 billion as of September 30, 2012, an increase of 46% compared to $1.1 billion as of September 30, 2011.

Westwood’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.40 per common share, an 8% increase from the previous quarterly dividend of $0.37 per share, payable on December 14, 2012 to stockholders of record on December 3, 2012.
