Manning & Napier, Inc. Announces Acquisition Of 2100 Xenon

Manning & Napier, Inc. (NYSE:MN), ("Manning & Napier" or "the Company") today announced that it will acquire the business and operations of 2100 Xenon Group, LLC, an alternative investment manager specializing in managed futures and global macro strategies for institutional and individual clients. The acquisition will enhance Manning & Napier’s alternative capabilities and provide increased product diversification to clients. The transaction is subject to certain regulatory approvals and is expected to close within the second quarter. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

As a result of the transaction, Manning & Napier will acquire three alternative investment product track records and add personnel with investment expertise in managed futures, including Jay Feuerstein, founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of 2100 Xenon, and Jeff Bolduc, CFA, Director of Research. Mr. Feuerstein and Mr. Bolduc collectively have over 40 years of experience managing risk and providing absolute return strategies to clients. Mr. Feuerstein, who will be named to Manning & Napier’s Senior Research Group as Managing Director of Alternative Strategies, has extensive experience managing alternative strategies across asset classes. Mr. Bolduc will be a Portfolio Manager within the firm’s Alternative Strategies Group.

The 2100 Xenon team is expected to manage its strategies consistent with current resourcing and begin to participate in broader mandates addressing specific client risks over time. The strategies currently managed by the team will be marketed under the Manning & Napier brand as Xenon strategies. These strategies include a global managed futures strategy, a long/short global fixed income futures product, and a futures alpha product, which collectively represented approximately $200 million in client assets as of December 31, 2013.

Patrick Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer of Manning & Napier commented, “Manning & Napier has been actively searching for a complementary manager to expand our investment management capabilities to include alternative strategies. Our objectives included both product diversification and expanding the solution set we offer to our clients in today’s challenging environment. We believe the blend of our sales and service capability with the added investment expertise will prove a winning combination.”
