Realized and Unrealized Gains of $0.8 million in the quarter increased relative to the prior year but decreased relative to the previous quarter; the change relative to the prior periods was driven principally by valuation adjustments in Private Equity.

Equity in Earnings of Affiliates of $0.5 million in the quarter increased relative to the prior year, reflecting an increased contribution from ABS Investment Management, and was down from the prior quarter.


Investment Management’s fourth quarter expenses were $20.2 million, down 1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 and up 6% compared to previous quarter. Included in the quarter were $0.7 million of acquisition costs. Year-to-date Investment Management expenses were $78.4 million, down 12% from a year ago. The decrease from the prior year results primarily reflects lower compensation costs driven by the decline in revenues and profitability.

Other U.S. GAAP Expenses

Evercore’s Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of the exclusion of expenses associated with the vesting of IPO equity awards and awards granted in conjunction with the Lexicon acquisition and certain business acquisition-related costs, including Special Charges. In addition, for Adjusted Pro Forma purposes, client related expenses and expenses associated with revenue-sharing engagements with third parties have been presented as a reduction from Revenues and Non-compensation costs. Further details of these expenses, as well as an explanation of similar expenses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and the three months ended September 30, 2012, are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-11.
