Duff & Phelps Corporation (NYSE: DUF), a leading independent provider of financial advisory and investment banking services, today announced financial results for its first quarter of 2010 and declared a quarterly dividend.

Results

For the quarter ended March 31, 2010, Duff & Phelps generated revenues excluding reimbursable expenses of $89.2 million, compared to $89.3 million for the corresponding prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA (1) for the quarter was $15.5 million, representing 17.4% of revenues excluding reimbursable expenses, compared to $15.2 million for the corresponding prior year quarter, representing 17.0% of revenues excluding reimbursable expenses. Net income attributable to Duff & Phelps Corporation was $4.3 million, or $0.16 per share of Class A common stock on a fully diluted basis, compared to $1.8 million, or $0.11 per share for the corresponding prior year quarter. Adjusted pro forma net income (1) was $7.3 million, or $0.19 per share on a fully exchanged, fully diluted basis, compared to $7.0 million, or $0.20 per share, for the corresponding prior year quarter.

“Duff & Phelps’ diversified portfolio demonstrated stability during the first quarter, as we emerge from the difficult economic environment of 2009,” commented Noah Gottdiener, chief executive officer. “Investment Banking was a particular strength with overall segment revenue increasing 48% compared to the first quarter of 2009. We are well-positioned to benefit from an improving M&A market and to build share in our non-cyclical businesses. I look forward to working with our recently named leadership team to grow the business.”

“We are focused on maintaining a disciplined expense structure, as demonstrated by continued efficiencies in SG&A,” said Jacob Silverman, chief financial officer. “Our balance sheet remains strong with ample liquidity to fund growth opportunities. In addition, our increased quarterly dividend and new share repurchase program reflect our commitment to enhancing value for our shareholders.”

Declaration of Quarterly Dividend

The Company also announced today that its board of directors has increased the quarterly dividend by 20% to $0.06 per share on its outstanding Class A common stock. The dividend is payable on May 28, 2010 to shareholders of record on May 18, 2010.

Authorization of Stock Repurchase Program

The Company also announced today that its board of directors has approved a stock repurchase program, authorizing the Company to repurchase in the aggregate up to $50.0 million of its outstanding common stock. Purchases by the Company under this program may be made from time to time at prevailing market prices in open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, block purchase techniques or otherwise, as determined by the Company’s management. The purchases will be funded from existing cash balances.

This program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock. The timing, frequency and amount of repurchase activity will depend on a variety of factors, such as levels of cash generation from operations, cash requirements for investment in the Company’s business, current stock price, market conditions and other factors. The share repurchase program may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time and has no set expiration date.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and is reconciled as follows (in thousands):

Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues 17.4 % 17.0 %

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides a relevant and useful alternative measure of our ongoing profitability and performance, when viewed in conjunction with GAAP measures, as it adjusts net income or loss attributable to Duff & Phelps Corporation for (a) net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interest, (b) provision for income taxes, (c) interest expense and depreciation and amortization (a significant portion of which relates to debt and capital investments that have been incurred as the result of acquisitions and investments in stand-alone infrastructure which we do not expect to incur at the same levels in the future), (d) equity-based compensation associated with the Legacy Units of D&P Acquisitions, a significant portion of which is due to certain one-time grants associated with acquisitions prior to our IPO, and options to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock granted in connection with the IPO (“IPO Options”), and (e) impairment charges, acquisition retention expenses and other merger and acquisition costs, which are generally non-recurring in nature or are related to deferred payments associated with prior acquisitions.

Given the level of acquisition activity during the period prior to our IPO, and related capital investments and one time equity grants associated with acquisitions during the this period (which we do not expect to incur at the same levels post IPO) and the IPO, and our belief that, as a professional services organization, our operations are not capital intensive on an ongoing basis, we believe the Adjusted EBITDA measure, in addition to GAAP financial measures, provides a relevant and useful benchmark for investors, in order to assess our financial performance and comparability to other companies in our industry. The Adjusted EBITDA measure is utilized by our senior management to evaluate our overall performance and operating expense characteristics and to compare our performance to that of certain of our competitors. A measure similar to Adjusted EBITDA is the principal measure that determines the compensation of our senior management team. In addition, a measure similar to Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure that determines compliance with certain financial covenants under our credit facility. Management compensates for the inherent limitations associated with using the Adjusted EBITDA measure through disclosure of such limitations, presentation of our financial statements in accordance with GAAP and reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, net income or loss. Furthermore, management also reviews GAAP measures, and evaluates individual measures that are not included in Adjusted EBITDA such as our level of capital expenditures, equity issuance and interest expense, among other measures.

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, consists of net income or loss attributable to Duff & Phelps Corporation before (a) net income or loss attributable to the noncontrolling interest, (b) provision for income taxes, (c) other expense, net, (d) depreciation and amortization, (e) charges from impairment of intangible assets, (f) equity-based compensation associated with Legacy Units and IPO Options included in both compensation and benefits and in selling, general and administrative expenses, (g) acquisition retention expenses, and (h) merger and acquisition costs.

Adjusted pro forma net income, as defined by Duff & Phelps, consists of Adjusted EBITDA (as defined above), less depreciation, amortization and impairment of intangible assets; interest income and expense (excluding a non-recurring charge from the repayment and subsequent termination of our former credit agreement); other income or expense; and pro forma corporate income tax applied at an assumed rate as specified in the applicable footnote (such assumed pro forma corporate income tax rate may fluctuate between periods and may include true-ups relating to prior periods, based on management estimates and judgments). Adjusted pro forma net income per share, as defined by Duff & Phelps, consists of adjusted pro forma net income divided by the weighted average number of the Company's Class A and Class B shares for the applicable period, giving effect to the dilutive impact, if any, of stock options and restricted stock awards.

Both Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted pro forma net income are non-GAAP financial measures which are not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered alternatives to, measurements required by GAAP, such as operating income, net income or loss, net income or loss per share, cash flow from continuing operating activities or any other measure of performance or liquidity derived in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. In addition, it should be noted that companies calculate Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted pro forma net income differently and, therefore, Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted pro forma net income as presented for us may not be comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted pro forma net income reported by other companies.

(1)
  The utilization rate for any given period is calculated by dividing the number of hours incurred by client service professionals who worked on client assignments (including internal projects for the Company) during the period by the total available working hours for all of such client service professionals during the same period, assuming a 40 hour work week, less paid holidays and vacation days. Financial Advisory utilization excludes approximately 60 client service professionals associated with Rash & Associates, L.P. (“Rash”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, due to the nature of the work performed.
 
(2) Average billing rate-per-hour is calculated by dividing applicable revenues for the period by the number of hours worked on client assignments (including internal projects for the Company) during the same period. Financial Advisory revenues used to calculate rate-per-hour exclude approximately $1,583 and $1,892 of revenues associated with Rash in the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
