Fourth Quarter of 2012 Comparison with Fourth Quarter of 2011

Assets Under Management and Net Client Cash Flows

Assets under management were $14.3 billion as of December 31, 2012, down $16.0 billion, or 53%, from $30.4 billion as of December 31, 2011, due to net client cash outflows, partly offset by market appreciation.

Net client cash outflows for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $3.8 billion, driven by net client cash outflows across all strategies, although predominantly in our International Equity I and II strategies. 6

Revenues and Other Operating Income

Revenues and other operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $20.8 million, down 60% from $51.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The decrease was driven primarily by lower investment management fees of $20.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, down 60% from $51.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, due primarily to lower average assets under management and a decrease in the effective fee rate.

Expenses

Employee Compensation and Benefits

For the fourth quarter of 2012, adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $10.4 million, down 49% from $20.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The decrease was due primarily to a reduction in incentive compensation accruals and a decrease in costs associated with lower headcount.

GAAP employee compensation and benefits expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $15.1 million, a decrease of 34% from $23.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, due primarily to the reasons noted above and a decrease in the amortization of RSUs awarded at the time of the IPO, partly offset by the compensation charge related to organizational changes recorded in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Shareholder Servicing and Marketing Expenses

Shareholder servicing and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $2.1 million, down 45% from $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, driven primarily by lower platform costs, reflecting a decrease in average assets under management in proprietary funds.

General and Administrative Expenses

Adjusted general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $7.6 million, a decrease of 20% from $9.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, due primarily to a decrease in expenses associated with lower headcount, and other cost saving initiatives.

GAAP general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $7.7 million, a decrease of 19% from $9.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, due primarily to the reasons noted above.

Non-operating Income (Loss)

Adjusted non-operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million, an increase of $1.7 million from the fourth quarter of 2011, primarily reflecting an increase in gains on seed capital investments during the fourth quarter of 2012.

GAAP non-operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.7 million, an increase from $0.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, due primarily to the reason noted above.

Income Taxes

For the fourth quarter of 2012, adjusted income tax expense was $0.8 million, a decrease of 90% from $8.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, due primarily to a decrease in taxable income.

GAAP income tax benefit was $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to GAAP income tax expense of $7.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fourth Quarter of 2012 Comparison with Third Quarter of 2012

Assets Under Management

Assets under management were $14.3 billion as of December 31, 2012, a decrease of $3.3 billion, or 19%, from $17.7 billion as of September 30, 2012, due to net client cash outflows, partly offset by market appreciation.

Revenues and Other Operating Income

Revenues and other operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $20.8 million, down 23% from $26.9 million for the third quarter of 2012, driven primarily by lower investment management fees. Investment management fees were $20.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, down 23% from $26.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to a decrease in average assets under management and a decrease in the effective fee rate.

Expenses

Employee Compensation and Benefits

For the fourth quarter of 2012, adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $10.4 million, a decrease of 27% from $14.4 million for the third quarter of 2012. The decrease was due primarily to a decrease in costs associated with lower headcount and a reduction in incentive compensation accruals.

GAAP employee compensation and benefits expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $15.1 million, a decrease of 60% from $38.0 million for the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to the removal of the service requirement for the remaining unvested RSUs granted at the time of the IPO, in the third quarter of 2012, and the reasons noted above.

Shareholder Servicing and Marketing Expenses

Shareholder servicing and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $2.1 million, a decrease of 19% from $2.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to lower platform costs, reflecting a decrease in average assets under management in proprietary funds and a decline in marketing expenses.

General and Administrative Expenses

Adjusted general and administrative expenses were $7.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, a decrease of 13% from $8.7 million for the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to lower expenses across most categories.

GAAP general and administrative expenses were $7.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, a decrease of 25% from $10.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to a non-recurring expense recorded in the third quarter of 2012 related to a potential tax obligation for one of our offshore funds, for which the Company has indemnified the fund (“offshore fund expense”), and the reason noted above.

Non-operating Income (Loss)

Adjusted non-operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million, a decrease of 30% from adjusted non-operating income of $2.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting a decrease in gains on seed capital investments.

GAAP non-operating income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.7 million, a decrease of 98% from GAAP non-operating income of $144.2 million for the third quarter of 2012 due primarily to a reduction in amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement in the third quarter of 2012, associated with the valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax assets and the reason noted above.

Income Taxes

For the fourth quarter of 2012, adjusted income tax expense was $0.8 million, compared to adjusted income tax benefit of $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase was due primarily to a true-up to reflect the finalization of the prior year’s tax return in the third quarter of 2012.

GAAP income tax benefit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.5 million, compared to GAAP income tax expense of $171.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, due primarily to the valuation allowance taken on the Company’s deferred tax assets in the third quarter of 2012 and a write-off of deferred tax assets related to the vesting of RSUs granted at the time of the IPO, at a price below their grant date fair value, in the third quarter of 2012.

Full Year 2012 Comparison to Full Year 2011

Net Client Cash Flows

Expenses

Employee Compensation and Benefits

For 2012, adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $61.3 million, down 29% from $86.9 million for 2011. The decrease was due primarily to lower accruals for incentive compensation and a decrease in costs associated with lower headcount.

GAAP employee compensation and benefits expenses were $94.9 million for 2012, a decrease of 10% from $105.2 million for 2011, due primarily to the reasons noted above, partly offset by the removal of the service requirement for the remaining unvested RSUs granted at the time of the IPO in 2012 and a larger compensation charge related to organizational changes in 2012.

Shareholder Servicing and Marketing Expenses

Notes to Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Adjusted Consolidated Statements of Operations
 

Management believes the Non-GAAP adjustments set forth below provide more meaningful comparisons between periods. Additional information on the reorganization of the Company's ownership structure and the related non-recurring items are discussed in the Company's prospectus dated September 23, 2009.

 
(a)  

Adjustments to exclude the amortization expense associated with the RSUs awarded at the time of the IPO, as the granting of the awards was one-time in nature.
 
(b) Adjustments to exclude certain compensation costs associated with organizational changes.
 
(c)

The adjustments to income taxes for all periods presented prior to the Principals' exchanges on April 24, 2012, reflect the tax effect of the assumed full exchange of the Principals' non-controlling interests for Class A common stock on the first day of the respective period, since prior to such exchange, income tax expense excludes the U.S. federal and state taxes for the income attributable to the Principals.
 

Adjustments to reflect the tax effects of excluding the amortization expense associated with the RSUs awarded at the time of the IPO and the tax effects of excluding costs associated with organizational changes.
 

Adjustments also exclude a valuation allowance on the Company's deferred tax assets, the tax effect of excluding the offshore fund expense and costs associated with the wind-down of the Company's US Equity strategies and reductions in infrastructure requirements.
 
(d)

Adjustment to eliminate the Principals' non-controlling interests, which for periods prior to the Principals' exchanges on April 24, 2012, are assumed to be exchanged for Class A common stock on the first day of the respective period.
 
(e)

Adjusted diluted shares outstanding, for periods prior to the Principals' exchanges on April 24, 2012, assumes the Principals have fully exchanged their New Class A Units in Artio Global Holdings LLC for an equivalent amount of shares of the Company's Class A common stock.
 
(f)

Adjusted diluted shares outstanding for the three months ended Sep. 30, 2012, and the three months and year ended Dec. 31, 2012, include the dilutive impact of the unvested RSUs which are anti-dilutive under GAAP.
 
(g)

Adjustments to eliminate third-party investors' economic interests in the Consolidated Investment Products from both Net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests in the Consolidated Investment Products and Non-operating income (loss). Management believes these adjustments provide a more useful measure for comparing Non-operating income between periods.
 
(h) Adjustment to eliminate the offshore fund expense.
 
(i) Adjustment to eliminate costs associated with the wind-down of the Company's US Equity strategies and reductions in infrastructure requirements.
 
(j) Adjustment to eliminate non-operating income related to a reduction in amounts payable under the tax receivable agreement.

1.   Lipper, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reuters, provides independent insight on global collective investments including mutual funds, retirement funds, hedge funds and fund fees and expenses to the asset management and media communities. Lipper ranks the performance of mutual funds within a classification of funds that have similar investment objectives. Rankings are historical with capital gains and dividends reinvested and do not include the effect of loads. If an expense waiver was in effect, it may have had a material effect on the total return or yield for the period.
 
For each mutual fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a mutual fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. A fund's independent Morningstar Rating metric is then compared against the mutual fund universe breakpoints to determine its hypothetical rating.
