Review of Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2012Revenue increased 26% to $44.3 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $35.3 million for the second quarter of 2011. The increase in revenue was driven primarily by the growth in professional management revenue, which increased 33% to $35.2 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $26.5 million for the second quarter of 2011. Costs and expenses increased 27% to $38.2 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $30.1 million for the second quarter of 2011. This was due primarily to an increase in fees paid to plan providers for connectivity to plan and plan participant data, printed material costs associated with enrollment campaigns and member materials, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, wages due to increased headcount and higher compensation, as well as an increase in rent expense. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue (exclusive of amortization of internal use software) increased to 39% for the second quarter of 2012 from 35% for the second quarter of 2011, due primarily to an increase in fees paid to plan providers for connectivity to plan and plan participant data resulting from the achievement of certain contractual AUM-based milestones. Income from operations was $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2012 compared to $5.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. As a percentage of revenue, income from operations was 14% for the second quarter of 2012 compared to 15% for the second quarter of 2011. Net income increased to $3.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012 compared to net income of $3.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, Adjusted Net Income i was $5.4 million and Adjusted Earnings Per Share i were $0.11 for the second quarter of 2012 compared to Adjusted Net Income of $4.2 million and Adjusted Earnings Per Share of $0.09 for the second quarter of 2011. “Despite challenging financial markets, our growth in members, plan sponsors, and assets under management demonstrates that employers and employees are looking for professional help to achieve their retirement goals,” said Ray Sims, chief financial officer of Financial Engines.
Assets Under Contract and Assets Under ManagementAUC was $536 billion as of June 30, 2012, an increase of 24% from $431 billion as of June 30, 2011, due primarily to new employers making our services available, contributions, and market performance. AUC for plans in which Income+ service has been made available was $21 billion as of June 30, 2012. AUM increased by 24% year over year to $54.2 billion as of June 30, 2012, from $43.8 billion as of June 30, 2011. The increase in AUM was driven primarily by net new enrollment into the Professional Management service, contributions, and market performance.

|(1)||The aggregate amount of assets under management, at the time of enrollment, of new members who enrolled in our Professional Management service within the period less the aggregate amount of assets, at the time of cancellation, for voluntary cancellations from the Professional Management service within the period, less the aggregate amount of assets, as of the last available positive account balance, for involuntary cancellations occurring when the member's 401(k) plan account balance has been reduced to zero or when the cancellation of a plan sponsor contract for the Professional Management service has become effective within the period.|
|(2)||Other factors affecting assets under management include employer and employee contributions, market movement, plan administrative fees, as well as participant loans and hardship withdrawals. Employer and employee contributions are estimated each quarter from annual contribution rates based on data received from plan providers and are estimated to have been approximately $0.7 billion in Q3'11, $0.8 billion in Q4'11, $0.8 billion in Q1'12, and $0.9 billion in Q2'12. We cannot separately quantify the impact of the other factors contained in this line item as the information we receive from the plan providers does not separately identify these transactions or the changes in balances due to market movement.|
