Artio Global Investors Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results; Announces Dividend Of $0.02 Per Share

Stocks in this article: ART

“Strategically, we have realigned the business around our expertise in cross-border investing across both equity and fixed income markets, with particular focus on repairing our International Equity track records and growing our highly rated fixed income strategies. At the same time, we continue to concentrate on managing expenses and maintaining the strength of our balance sheet, and remain focused on investing for future growth.”

Third Quarter of 2012 Comparison with Third Quarter of 2011

Assets Under Management and Net Client Cash Flows

Assets under management were $17.7 billion as of September 30, 2012, down $16.6 billion, or 48%, from $34.3 billion as of September 30, 2011, due to net client cash outflows, partly offset by market appreciation.

Net client cash outflows for the third quarter of 2012 were $4.3 billion, driven primarily by net client cash outflows from our International Equity I and II strategies. 6

Revenues and Other Operating Income

Revenues and other operating income for the third quarter of 2012 totaled $26.9 million, down 58% from $63.8 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was driven primarily by lower investment management fees of $26.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, down 60% from $65.6 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to lower average assets under management.


Employee Compensation and Benefits

For the third quarter of 2012, adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $14.4 million, down 19% from $17.7 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was due primarily to a reduction in costs associated with lower headcount.

GAAP employee compensation and benefits expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $38.0 million, an increase of 34% from $28.4 million for the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to the removal of the service requirement for the remaining unvested RSUs granted at the time of the IPO, partly offset by the reasons noted above and a lower compensation charge related to organizational changes in the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the third quarter of 2011.
