Artisan Partners Asset Management Inc. Reports 2Q13 Results

Artisan Partners Asset Management Inc. (NYSE: APAM) (the "Company" or "Artisan Partners") today reported its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, and net income and earnings per share for the period from March 12, 2013 (the closing date of its initial public offering) through June 30, 2013.

"Since the founding of our firm, our approach to the management of our business has consistently centered on our investment talent, strong long-term investment results, asset diversification and financial discipline. We believe that if we remain focused on those primary guideposts over long periods positive results should follow," Eric Colson, President and CEO, noted.

Business Update

Mr. Colson went on to say, "As of June 30, 2013, 10 of our 12 investment strategies (excluding our 13 th strategy which we launched late in the quarter) added value relative to their broad performance benchmarks over the trailing 5-year and 10-year periods and since each strategy's inception. In addition, more than 90% of our assets under management were in strategies outperforming the respective benchmarks over the trailing 3, 5, and 10-year periods and since each strategy's inception.

"Our business development efforts continued to be well diversified by investment team, strategy and distribution channel. A highlight of the second quarter was the continued success of our global distribution efforts. Artisan Partners Global Funds, our family of five UCITS funds, which we launched at the end of 2010, grew past the $1 billion mark. We think this reflects very solid early interest in our business model and investment capabilities by investors outside the U.S. In particular, we are optimistic about our growth potential in the EMEA region.

"From a financial standpoint, our primary metrics remained in line with our long-term expectations for our business. In a traditionally slow quarter for market flows, we were pleased with our organic growth. We have continued to generate strong cash flows and recently declared our first dividend. Our highly variable cost structure has continued to support our above average operating margin. As previously stated, we plan to distribute the majority of our annual earnings to our shareholders through the combination of a consistent quarterly dividend and a special annual dividend.
