For the fourth quarter of 2012, EBITDA was $182.1 million, compared to $116.3 million for the same period of 2011. (Economic EPS, Economic net income, and EBITDA are defined in the attached tables, along with comparisons to the appropriate GAAP measure.)

For the year ended December 31, 2012, Economic net income was $408.8 million, while EBITDA was $543.4 million, and Net income was $174.0 million. For the year ended December 31, 2011, Economic net income was $351.0 million, while EBITDA was $471.3 million, and Net income was $164.9 million.

Net client cash flows for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $5.1 billion, and flows for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $30.1 billion. The aggregate assets under management of AMG’s affiliated investment management firms were approximately $432 billion at December 31, 2012.

“AMG’s results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012 reflected strong performance across all areas of our business and the excellent execution of our growth strategy, including continued outstanding growth from net client cash flows, the ongoing expansion of our global distribution platform, and the significant deployment of capital through our new investments strategy,” stated Sean M. Healey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AMG. “Our Economic earnings per share were a record $7.71 for the year, an increase of 16% over 2011, and going forward, we see excellent opportunities to generate further growth in earnings and shareholder value through both the organic growth of our Affiliates as well as the addition of outstanding new Affiliates.”

“Our Affiliates produced strong investment performance in the areas which are most attractive to global clients for the alpha-generating portions of their portfolios, including global and emerging markets equities and alternatives, which collectively generate over 70% of our EBITDA,” Mr. Healey added. “With industry-leading long-term track records in these product areas at Affiliates such as Tweedy, Browne, Harding Loevner, and Genesis in equities, and ValueAct, AQR, and BlueMountain in alternatives, we are well-positioned for continued strong organic growth. In addition, our alternative products delivered excellent absolute returns and meaningful performance fees during the year.”

Mr. Healey continued, “Our global distribution strategy, which complements Affiliate-level marketing efforts with the centralized platform of AMG’s global franchise, has now generated exceptional organic growth from net client cash flows for eleven consecutive quarters – including over $30 billion of net client cash flows in 2012, a period in which investor risk appetite remained broadly muted. The strategic investment we have made over the past five years in extending the breadth and depth of our Affiliates’ marketing reach around the globe has generated substantial incremental new business in every coverage region, and with new offices in Dubai and Zurich and additional resources in Germany and Switzerland within the past year, we expect continued momentum going forward. Given the increasing client demand for differentiated, alpha-generating strategies from specialist firms, and the significant opportunities we see to win new business and market share around the world, we will continue to add capabilities in key markets and channels globally in 2013.”

“Finally, we were very pleased with the successful execution of our new investments strategy in 2012, with the addition of Veritable, Yacktman, and our significant additional investment in BlueMountain,” Mr. Healey concluded. “Our forward new investment pipeline is strong and diverse, and includes traditional, alternative, and wealth management firms globally. We are making excellent progress in this area as we actively evaluate an array of prospective Affiliates, and we will continue to benefit from our reputation as the partner of choice to the best boutique firms around the world. Given AMG’s unique competitive position and our outstanding track record of Affiliate investments, we are confident in our ability to add materially to our earnings growth through accretive Affiliate investments going forward.”

(A)

Under our Economic net income definition, we add to Net income (controlling interest) amortization (including equity method amortization) and impairments, deferred taxes related to intangible assets, non-cash imputed interest expense (principally related to the accounting for convertible securities and contingent payment arrangements) and certain Affiliate equity expenses. We consider Economic net income an important measure of our financial performance, as we believe it best represents operating performance before non-cash expenses relating to the acquisition of interests in our affiliated investment management firms, and it is therefore employed as our principal performance benchmark. This non-GAAP performance measure is provided in addition to, but not as a substitute for, Net income; Economic net income is not a liquidity measure, and should not be used in place of liquidity measures calculated under GAAP.
 

We add back amortization and impairments attributable to acquired client relationships because these expenses do not correspond to the changes in the value of these assets, which do not diminish predictably over time. The portion of deferred taxes generally attributable to intangible assets (including goodwill) is added back because we believe it is unlikely these accruals will be used to settle material tax obligations. We add back non-cash expenses relating to certain transfers of equity between Affiliate management partners when these transfers have no dilutive effect to shareholders.
 
(B)

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. This supplemental non-GAAP liquidity measure is provided in addition to, but not as a substitute for, cash flow from operations. As a measure of liquidity, we believe EBITDA is useful as an indicator of our ability to service debt, make new investments and meet working capital requirements. EBITDA, as calculated by us, may not be consistent with computations of EBITDA by other companies. In reporting EBITDA by segment, Affiliate expenses are allocated to a particular segment on a pro rata basis with respect to the revenue generated by that Affiliate in such segment.
 
(C)

Economic earnings per share represents Economic net income divided by the adjusted diluted average shares outstanding. In this calculation, the potential share issuance in connection with our convertible securities is measured using a “treasury stock” method. Under this method, only the net number of shares of common stock equal to the value of the contingently convertible securities and the junior convertible trust preferred securities in excess of par, if any, are deemed to be outstanding. We believe the inclusion of net shares under a treasury stock method best reflects the benefit of the increase in available capital resources (which could be used to repurchase shares of common stock) that occurs when these securities are converted and we are relieved of our debt obligation. This method does not take into account any increase or decrease in our cost of capital in an assumed conversion. Economic earnings per share is not a liquidity measure, and should not be used in place of liquidity measures calculated under GAAP.
 
(D)

In the third and fourth quarters of 2012, we sold $200.0 aggregate principal amount of 6.375% Senior Notes due 2042 and $140.0 aggregate principal amount of 5.25% Senior Notes due 2022, respectively.
 
(E)

We have bifurcated our convertible debt securities into their debt and equity components on our balance sheet. The principal amount at maturity of the senior convertible notes due 2038 was $460.0 at December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012. The principal amount at maturity of the junior convertible trust preferred securities was $730.8 at December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012, comprised of $300.0 due 2036 and $430.8 due 2037.

Convertible securities interest expense, net includes the interest expense, net of tax, associated with our dilutive convertible securities.

(J)

In the fourth quarter of 2012, we adjusted our estimate of our contingent payment obligations and, accordingly, recorded a pre-tax expense attributable to the controlling interest of $3.8.
