JANUS CAPITAL GROUP INC. ANNOUNCES

FIRST QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

 


 

First quarter earnings of $0.17 per diluted share,

or $0.23 as adjusted for merger-related costs

 


 

DENVER — Janus Capital Group Inc. (“JCG”) (NYSE: JNS) today reported first quarter 2017 net income of $30.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with fourth quarter 2016 net income of $30.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, and net income of $35.1 million, or $0.19 per diluted share in the first quarter 2016.

 

First quarter 2017 net income adjusted for merger-related costs was $43.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share.

The increase in assets under management during the first quarter 2017 reflects market appreciation of $12.1 billion partially offset by long-term net outflows of $4.7 billion.

First quarter 2017 revenues of $257.6 million increased from the fourth quarter 2016 due to higher investment management fees as a result of higher average assets under management. First quarter 2017 operating expenses of $202.3 million increased $12.7 million from fourth quarter operating expenses of $189.6 million, primarily due to increased marketing and advertising expenses related to the proposed merger of JCG and Henderson Group plc (“Henderson”). JCG also had seasonally higher employee compensation expenses, partially offset by lower merger-related costs within general and administrative expenses compared to the fourth quarter 2016.

 

Capital and Liquidity

 

At March 31, 2017, JCG had total equity of $1.7 billion, cash and investments of $655.8 million and outstanding debt of $407.4 million.

 

Cash flows from operations during the first quarter 2017 were $(50.1) million compared with $94.8 million during the fourth quarter 2016 and $(44.0) million during the first quarter 2016. The change in cash flows from operations comparing the first quarter 2017 to the fourth quarter 2016 is due to the payment of annual incentive compensation in the first quarter 2017.

 



 

On April 18, 2017, JCG’s Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.11 per share. The quarterly dividend will be paid on May 19, 2017, to stockholders of record at the close of business on May 5, 2017.

Notes:

(1)     Growth / Core and Fixed Income assets and flows reflect an even split of the Janus Balanced Fund between the two categories.

(2)     ETN sales and redemptions across all periods (exclusive of the first and second quarters 2016) were adjusted due to a revised reporting method by the subsidiary; ending and average assets were not impacted.

(3)     Assets and flows in 2016 reflect a recategorization of the Janus Global Real Estate Fund from the Growth / Core to Global / International discipline.

(4)     First quarter 2017 gross sales and redemptions exclude an intra-strategy transfer of $1.6 billion from a Danish krone-denominated account into a U.S. dollar-denominated account.

 



 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). To provide greater transparency into JCG’s business on an ongoing operations basis and allow more appropriate comparisons with industry peers, the Company presents adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income attributable to JCG and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to JCG common shareholders as non GAAP financial measures. Each of these non-GAAP financial measures is considered to be effective indicators, for both management and investors, of JCG’s financial performance over time. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude expenses incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 related to the merger with Henderson as these expenses are not considered part of the Company’s ongoing operations. Management uses non-GAAP performance measures to evaluate the business on an ongoing basis, and they are consistent with internal management reporting. The most directly comparable GAAP measures are operating income, operating margin, net income attributable to JCG and diluted earnings per share attributable to JCG common shareholders.

 

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as substitutes for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Additional reconciling items may be added in the future to these non-GAAP measures if appropriate. The tax effect related to reconciling items has been calculated based on the tax rate attributable to the jurisdiction to which the transaction relates.

 



 

The following are reconciliations of GAAP basis operating income, operating margin, net income attributable to JCG and diluted earnings per share attributable to JCG common shareholders to adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income attributable to JCG and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to JCG common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016. The Company did not adjust its GAAP basis figures for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as the amounts during this period reflect JCG’s business on an ongoing operations basis. Amounts are presented in millions, except per share data and operating profit percentages.

Janus Capital Group Inc. (“JCG”) provides investment advisory services through its primary subsidiaries, Janus Capital Management LLC (“Janus”), INTECH Investment Management LLC (“INTECH”) and Perkins Investment Management LLC (“Perkins”).

 

“Complex-Wide Mutual Funds” means all affiliated mutual funds managed by Janus, INTECH and Perkins. “Fundamental Equity Mutual Funds” means all mutual funds managed by Janus or Perkins that invest in equity securities. “Fixed Income Mutual Funds” means all mutual funds managed by Janus that invest primarily in fixed income securities. “Mathematical Equity Relative Return Strategies” means all relative return discretionary managed accounts (not mutual funds) that are advised or sub-advised by INTECH with at least a one-year track record.

 

Mutual fund relative performance analysis shown is for each Fund’s Class I Shares in the Janus investment fund (“JIF”) trust and Institutional Shares in the Janus Aspen Series (“JAS”) trust or, if not available, in the Fund’s “parent” share class (that with the longest history). These share classes may not be eligible for purchase by all investors. Other share classes may have higher sales and management fees, which can result in differences in performance.

 

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal and fluctuation of value. Performance may be affected by risks that include those associated with non-diversification, portfolio turnover, short sales, potential conflicts of interest, foreign and emerging markets, initial public offerings (IPOs), high-yield and high-risk securities, undervalued, overlooked and smaller capitalization companies, real estate related securities including Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), derivatives, and commodity-linked investments. Each product has different risks. Please see the prospectus for more information about risks, holdings and other details.

 



 

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product 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. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

 

The Morningstar percentile ranking is based on a fund’s total return (including income and capital gains, if any, and excluding sales charges) relative to all funds in the same category for the period. The highest (or most favorable) percentile rank is 1%, and the lowest (or least favorable) percentile rank is 100%. The top-performing funds in a category will always receive a rank of 1.

 

Morningstar performance on an asset-weighted basis is calculated by taking all funds and assigning the assets under management (“AUM”) in each respective fund to either the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th quartile bucket based on each fund’s respective Morningstar relative ranking. The total AUM of each quartile’s bucket is then divided by complex-wide total AUM to arrive at the respective percent of AUM in each bucket.

 

Please consider the charges, risks, expenses and investment objectives carefully before investing.

Forward-looking statements This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements may include: management plans relating to the Transaction; the expected timing of the completion of the Transaction; the ability to complete the Transaction; the ability to obtain any required regulatory, shareholder or other approvals; any statements of the plans and objectives of management for future operations, products or services, including the execution of integration plans relating to the Transaction; any statements of expectation or belief; projections related to certain financial metrics; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “target,” “outlook,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “project” and other similar words and expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, subject to numerous assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which change over time and are beyond our control. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and investors and security holders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Janus Capital Group Inc. (“Janus Capital Group”) does not assume any duty and does not undertake to update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, nor does Janus Capital Group intend to do so, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. Because forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions and uncertainties, actual results or future events could differ, possibly materially, from those that Janus Capital Group anticipated in its forward-looking statements and future results could differ materially from historical performance. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those included under Item 1A “Risk Factors” in Janus Capital Group’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and those disclosed in Janus Capital Group’s other periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), as well as the possibility: that expected benefits of the Transaction may not materialize in the timeframe expected or at all, or may be more costly to achieve; that the Transaction may not be timely completed, if at all; that prior to the completion of the Transaction or thereafter, Janus Capital Group’s businesses may not perform as expected due to transaction-related uncertainty or other factors; that the parties are unable to successfully implement integration strategies related to the Transaction; that required regulatory, shareholder or other approvals are not obtained or other customary closing conditions are not satisfied in a timely manner or at all; reputational risks and the reaction of the companies’ shareholders, customers, employees and other constituents to the Transaction; and diversion of management time on merger-related matters. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning the proposed transaction or other matters attributable to Janus Capital Group or any other person acting on their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements referenced above. For any forward-looking statements made in this communication or in any documents, Janus Capital Group claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Annualized, pro forma, projected and estimated numbers are used for illustrative purposes only, are not forecasts and may not reflect actual results.

INTECH Firm-Wide Annualized Rolling 3-Year Period Composite Performance INTECH rolling 3-year performance Older rolling periods reflect fewer composites than more recent rolling periods. Performance for rolling periods other than three years are different and are available upon request. Data reflects past performance, which does not guarantee future results. Performance presented net of fees. Performance includes the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Outperformance is not indicative of positive absolute performance. Rolling periods calculated quarterly since each strategy’s inception. Chart includes performance for all active relative-risk strategies with at least a three-year track record. Chart excludes terminated published composites. See p. 29 and 30 for standardized performance and p. 31 for additional information on the strategies, inception dates and benchmarks included in this chart.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures To provide greater transparency into JCG’s business on an ongoing operations basis and allow more appropriate comparisons with industry peers, the Company presents adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income attributable to JCG and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to JCG common shareholders as non-GAAP financial measures. Each of these non-GAAP financial measures is considered to be effective indicators, for both management and investors, of JCG’s financial performance over time. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude expenses related to the merger with Henderson as these expenses are not considered part of the Company’s ongoing operations. Management uses non-GAAP performance measures to evaluate the business on an ongoing basis, and they are consistent with internal management reporting. The most directly comparable GAAP measures are operating income, operating margin, net income attributable to JCG and diluted earnings per share attributable to JCG common shareholders. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as substitutes for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Additional reconciling items may be added in the future to these non-GAAP measures if appropriate. The tax effect related to reconciling items has been calculated based on the tax rate attributable to the jurisdiction to which the transaction relates.

Mathematical equity performance disclosure For the period ending March 31, 2017, 0%, 40%, 25% and 33% of the mathematical equity mutual funds were beating their benchmarks on a 1-, 3-, 5-year and since-fund inception basis. Funds included in the analysis and their inception dates are: INTECH U.S. Core Fund – Class I (2/03); INTECH U.S. Managed Volatility Fund – Class I (12/05); INTECH International Managed Volatility Fund – Class I (5/07), INTECH Global Income Managed Volatility Fund – Class I (12/11), Janus Aspen INTECH U.S. Low Volatility Portfolio – Service Shares (9/12) and INTECH Emerging Markets Managed Volatility Fund – Class I (12/14). INTECH's focus on managed volatility may keep the Fund from achieving excess returns over its index. The strategy may underperform during certain periods of up markets and may not achieve the desired level of protection in down markets. The proprietary mathematical process used by INTECH may not achieve the desired results. Since the portfolios are regularly re-balanced, this may result in a higher portfolio turnover rate, higher expenses and potentially higher net taxable gains or losses compared to a "buy and hold" or index fund strategy. Past performance cannot guarantee future results. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal and fluctuation of value. Non-U.S. investments are subject to certain risks of overseas investing, including currency fluctuations and changes in political and economic conditions, which could result in significant market fluctuations. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. Performance results reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Composite performance results shown are time-weighted rates of return using daily valuation, include the effect of transaction costs (commissions, exchange fees, etc.), and are gross of non-reclaimable withholding taxes, if any. The composites include all actual fee-paying accounts managed on a fully discretionary basis according to the investment strategy from inception date, including those no longer under management. Portfolios meeting such criteria enter the composite upon the full first month under management. Reporting currency is USD, unless otherwise noted. The gross performance results presented do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees. Returns will be reduced by such advisory fees and other contractual expenses as described in each client’s individual contract. The net performance results presented reflect the deduction of model investment advisory fees, and not the advisory fees actually charged to the accounts in the composite. Prior to December 31, 2004, the model advisory fees deducted reflect the maximum fixed fee in effect for each strategy. Beginning January 1, 2005, the model advisory fees deducted reflect the standard fee schedule in effect during the period shown, applied to each account in the composite on a monthly basis. Standard fee schedules are available upon request. Actual advisory fees paid may vary among clients invested in the same strategy, which may be higher or lower than the model advisory fees. Some accounts may utilize a performance-based fee. For U.S. Large Cap Growth from inception to 12/31/05, the composite’s benchmark was the S&P 500/Barra Growth Index (“Barra Growth Index”). In 2005, S&P announced index name and methodology changes affecting the Barra Growth Index, which later became the S&P 500/Citigroup Growth Index (“Citigroup Growth Index”). During the transitional period, from 1/1/06 to 3/31/06, the benchmark return consisted partially of the return of the Barra Growth Index and the Citigroup Growth Index. On 4/1/06, the composite’s benchmark was changed to the Citigroup Growth Index. Effective 12/9/2009, the Citigroup Growth Index's name was changed to S&P 500 Growth Index. The S&P 500 Growth Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index developed by Standard and Poor's consisting of those stocks within the S&P 500 Index that exhibit strong growth characteristics. The index measures the performance of the growth style of investing in large cap U.S. stocks. The S&P 500 Growth Index will be reconstituted annually. Prior to May 21, 2010, with respect to non-U.S. securities traded on non-U.S. exchanges, INTECH used fair value prices that reflected current market conditions at the end of regular trading hours of the NYSE, normally 4:00 PM ET, rather than unadjusted closing prices in local markets. Therefore, the prices as well as foreign exchange rates used to calculate the U.S. dollar market values of securities may have differed from those used by an index. Indices generally use the unadjusted closing price in local markets instead of fair value pricing. As of May 21, 2010, prices for non-U.S. securities traded on non-U.S. exchanges are typically valued as of the close of their respective local markets. However, if a significant event takes place between the close of the local market and the close of the U.S. domestic market, a security may be fair valued. Non-U.S. securities are translated into U.S. dollars using the 4:00 P.M. London spot rate. With respect to European Large Cap Core, prices assigned to investments are published prices on their primary markets or exchanges since the composite’s inception. The returns for the indices shown do not include any transaction costs, management fees or other costs, and are gross of dividend tax withholdings. Mathematical equity strategies included in the investment performance summaries include those strategies with at least a 1-year track record. Absolute-risk strategies are excluded. MSCI makes no express or implied warranties or representations and shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to any MSCI data contained herein. The MSCI data may not be further redistributed or used as a basis for other indices or any securities or financial products This report has not been approved, reviewed or produced by MSCI.

Other important disclosures Data presented reflects past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Due to market volatility, current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Call 877.33JANUS (52687) or visit janus.com/advisor/mutual-funds for performance, rankings and ratings current to the most recent month-end. Janus Capital Group Inc. (“JCG”) provides investment advisory services through its primary subsidiaries, Janus Capital Management LLC (“Janus”), INTECH Investment Management LLC (“INTECH”) and Perkins Investment Management LLC (“Perkins”). “Complex-Wide Mutual Funds” means all affiliated mutual funds managed by Janus, INTECH and Perkins. “Fundamental Equity Mutual Funds” means all mutual funds managed by Janus or Perkins that invest in equity securities. “Fixed Income Mutual Funds” means all mutual funds managed by Janus that invest primarily in fixed income securities. “Mathematical Equity Strategies” means all relative-risk, discretionary managed accounts (not mutual funds) that are advised or sub-advised by INTECH. Mutual fund relative performance analysis shown is for each Fund's Class I Shares in the Janus investment fund (“JIF”) trust and Institutional Shares in the Janus Aspen Series (“JAS”) trust or, if not available, in the Fund’s “parent” share class (that with the longest history). These share classes may not be eligible for purchase by all investors. Other share classes may have higher sales and management fees, which can result in differences in performance. Morningstar Comparative Performance Morningstar performance on an asset-weighted basis is calculated by taking all funds and assigning the assets under management ("AUM") in each respective fund to either the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th quartile bucket based on each fund's respective Morningstar relative ranking. The total AUM of each quartile’s bucket is then divided by complex-wide total AUM to arrive at the respective percent of AUM in each bucket. The Morningstar percentile ranking is based on a fund’s total return (including income and capital gains, if any, and excluding sales charges) relative to all funds in the same category for the period. The highest (or most favorable) percentile rank is 1%, and the lowest (or least favorable) percentile rank is 100%. The top-performing funds in a category will always receive a rank of 1. For the 1-, 3-, 5- and 10-year periods ending March 31, 2017, 50%, 74%, 67% and 74% of the 54, 50, 46 and 35 Complex-Wide mutual funds; 67%, 84%, 61% and 76% of the 39, 38, 36 and 29 Fundamental Equity mutual funds; 11%, 29%, 83% and 100% of the 9, 7, 6 and 4 Fixed Income mutual funds outperformed the majority of their Morningstar peers based on total returns. On an asset-weighted basis, 84% of the Complex-Wide mutual fund assets, 83% of the Fundamental Equity mutual fund assets and 100% of the Fixed Income mutual fund assets outperformed the majority of their Morningstar peers based on total returns for the 10-year period. The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating," is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product 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. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
