Manning & Napier, Inc. Announces Exchange Of Units Of Manning & Napier Group

Manning & Napier, Inc. (NYSE:MN), (“Manning & Napier” or “the Company”) today provided an update regarding its legacy ownership exchange. Pursuant to the existing exchange agreement established during the Company’s initial public offering, the legacy shareholders, consisting of its founder, management team and certain other employees, have the opportunity to exchange on an annual basis a portion of their interests in Manning & Napier Group, LLC for either cash or shares of the Company’s Class A common stock. This annual process was recently completed, and as a result, legacy shareholders exchanged an aggregate of 2,098,837 Class A units of Manning & Napier Group, LLC for approximately $30.3 million. Subsequent to the exchange, the Class A units were retired. As a result of the exchange, the Company’s ownership interest in Manning & Napier Group, LLC has correspondingly increased.

The price of each Class A unit was $14.45, or the average closing-price of the Class A common stock, for the 15 trading days prior to March 27, 2014, less a 5% discount.

“We believe the best use of our available cash resources is to purchase the units being tendered as part of this current exchange process, while preserving our ability to participate in mergers and acquisitions, fund dividends to our public shareholders and retain a flexible capital structure,” said Patrick Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer of Manning & Napier. “As with last year, the exchange has an accretive impact for our shareholders and demonstrates our continued confidence in the long-term growth potential of Manning & Napier.”
