Evercore Partners Reports Record Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, Evercore’s U.S. GAAP effective tax rate was approximately 43% and 44%, respectively, compared to (143%) and 62%, respectively, for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011. The effective tax rate for U.S. GAAP purposes reflects significant adjustments relating to the tax treatment of certain compensation transactions, changes in valuation allowances on deferred tax assets of non-U.S. subsidiaries as well as the non-controlling interest associated with Evercore LP Units. The effective tax rate for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, was lower than the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 primarily due to a higher level of expected foreign sourced income and the release of certain tax provisions in 2012.

Balance Sheet

The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, holding cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $296.0 million at December 31, 2012. Current assets exceed current liabilities by $208.4 million at December 31, 2012. Amounts due related to the Long-Term Notes Payable were $101.4 million at December 31, 2012.

During the quarter the Company repurchased approximately 57,000 shares at an average cost of $27.51 per share.


On January 29, 2013, the Board of Directors of Evercore declared a quarterly dividend of $0.22 per share to be paid on March 8, 2013 to common stockholders of record on February 22, 2013.


On January 1, 2013 we promoted three Managing Directors to Senior Managing Director in the Advisory business – Stuart Britton (Financial Institutions), Arturo Ramirez (Mexico Public Finance Sector) and Mark Williamson (Transportation and Infrastructure).

Stuart joined Evercore in August 2011 upon the closing of our merger with Lexicon and specializes in coverage of companies in the insurance sector. Prior to joining Evercore, Stuart was a Partner and Managing Director of Lexicon. He led Lexicon’s Financial Institutions Group in New York and had overall responsibility for their New York Office. Since joining Evercore, Stuart has advised on a number of notable transactions including the sale of Flagstone to Validus, the sale of HSBC’s North American insurance operations to Enstar, the acquisition of certain of The Hartford’s life businesses by Philadelphia Financial, and a number of advisory assignments for Marsh & McLennan.
