Comments on the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2017 Results

Joseph A. Sullivan, Chairman and CEO of Legg Mason said, “During the quarter, Legg Mason delivered operating results that were in line with market expectations, after excluding some non-cash charges, while continuing to drive strategic progress despite significant industry headwinds. The Company’s operating results reflect higher non-pass through performance fees for the quarter and our continued focus on managing costs.  Outflows for the quarter were impacted by challenging industry trends for active managers and driven by US equity and alternative strategies, partially offset by fixed income inflows.  Investment performance improved during the quarter, and Legg Mason’s global distribution platform had positive net flows for the twelfth time in the last thirteen quarters.

"We remain focused on continuing to expand choice for our clients through product innovation, translating our investment capabilities from legacy and new managers into new products and vehicles that meet evolving investor needs. Additionally, we will continue developing technology to further support our distribution partners, as they look to better serve clients.

"Going forward, we see significant opportunity for active asset managers who provide distinct investment styles and who embrace the need to evolve their business models to better serve clients. As we begin 2017, we look forward to welcoming our two new Directors from the Shanda group and we believe that our ability to efficiently and effectively deliver investment performance in relevant vehicles to our investor clients will be a winning long-term strategy. And as always, we intend to be thoughtful in how we allocate capital, to invest in the business and return cash to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases."


Assets Under Management of $710.4 Billion


Assets Under Management ("AUM") were $710.4 billion at December 31, 2016 compared with $732.9 billion at September 30, 2016, driven by outflows of $10.9 billion, $8.4 billion in negative foreign exchange, $2.3 billion in negative market performance and $0.9 billion related to the sale of Legg Mason Poland. AUM was up 6% from $671.5 billion at December 31, 2015.
For the quarter, long-term net outflows of $4.0 billion included equity outflows of $3.7 billion and alternative outflows of $0.8 billion, which were partially offset by fixed income inflows of $0.5 billion. Liquidity outflows were $6.9 billion.
At December 31, 2016, fixed income represented 54% of AUM, while equity represented 24%, liquidity represented 12% and alternatives represented 10%.
By geography, 68% of AUM was from clients domiciled in the United States and 32% from non-US domiciled clients.
Average AUM during the quarter was $716.7 billion compared to $742.1 billion in the prior quarter and $683.0 billion in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. Average long-term AUM was $625.8 billion compared to $631.9 billion in the prior quarter and $559.8 billion in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016.


Comparison to the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2017

Net income was $51.4 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, as compared with net income of $66.4 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017. This quarter's results included non-cash impairment charges totaling $35.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, as well as contingent consideration credit adjustments of $14.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a credit of $7.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the prior quarter. The current quarter also included acquisition and transition-related costs at EnTrustPermal of $3.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, as compared with the prior quarter costs of $13.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. In addition, the current quarter included a $4.0 million gain, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to the sale of Legg Mason Poland, while the prior quarter included a $3.7 million loss, or $0.03 per diluted share on the termination of an interest rate swap contract.

News Release
37837694_imageleggmason3312016lma03.jpg

Operating revenues of $715.2 million were down 4% compared with $748.4 million in the prior quarter, as this quarter's results included $2.3 million of performance fees at Clarion that, per the terms of the acquisition, were passed through as compensation, as compared to $35.8 million of such fees in the prior quarter. In addition, revenues were also reduced reflecting lower average long-term AUM in the quarter. These decreases were partially offset by increased non-pass through performance fees of $20.7 million, compared with $6.1 million in the prior quarter.
Operating expenses of $604.1 million were down 3% compared with $620.7 million in the prior quarter principally due to lower compensation related to the $33.5 million reduction in pass through of performance fees at Clarion. The current quarter included non-cash impairment charges of $35.0 million as well as $3.0 million in acquisition and transition-related costs compared with the prior quarter acquisition and transition-related costs of $13.2 million. The current quarter also included a credit of $14.5 million for contingent consideration fair value adjustments compared to a similar credit of $7.0 million in the prior quarter. Finally, current quarter expenses included a $1.5 million gain in the market value of deferred compensation and seed investments, which is recorded as an increase in compensation and benefits with an offset in non-operating income, compared to a gain of $5.4 million in the prior quarter.
Non-operating expense was $20.2 million, as compared to $11.2 million in the prior quarter. Interest expense increased by $1.6 million primarily due to a full quarter of expense related to the $500 million junior subordinated debt issued in August. Gains on corporate investments, not offset in compensation, were $1.3 million compared with gains of $7.3 million last quarter. Both quarters included gains on funded deferred compensation and seed investments, as described above. The current quarter included a gain of $4.0 million on the sale of Legg Mason Poland, while the prior quarter included a $3.7 million loss on the termination of an interest rate swap contract. In addition, the current quarter included $0.8 million in gains associated with the consolidation of sponsored investment vehicles compared to $6.2 million in gains in the prior quarter. The consolidation of sponsored investment vehicles has no impact on net income as the effects of consolidation are fully attributable to noncontrolling interests.
Operating margin was 15.5% compared to 17.1% in the prior quarter. Operating margin, as adjusted2, was 23.9%, as compared to 22.7% with the increase primarily due to lower acquisition and transition-related costs.
Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, excluding consolidated investment vehicles, was $13.1 million compared to $14.4 million in the prior quarter, principally related to Clarion, EnTrustPermal, RARE and Royce.

Comparison to the Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2016
 
Net income was $51.4 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, as compared with a net loss of $138.6 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. This quarter's results included non-cash impairment charges totaling $35.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share as well as contingent consideration credit adjustments of $14.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $26.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the prior year's quarter. The current quarter also included acquisition and transition-related costs at EnTrustPermal of $3.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share. The prior year's third quarter included impairment charges of $371.0 million, or $2.79 per diluted share.
Operating revenues of $715.2 million were up 8% compared with $659.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016, principally due to revenues related to the addition of recently-acquired Clarion and EnTrust as well as higher performance fees.
Operating expenses of $604.1 million were down 33% compared with $900.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. Excluding the non-cash impairment charge of $35.0 million in the current quarter and $371.0 million in the prior year quarter, operating expenses were up 8% primarily related to the addition of expenses of Clarion and Entrust and acquisition and transition-related costs of $3.0 million. The current quarter also included a credit of $14.5 million for a contingent consideration fair value adjustment. Further, the current quarter expenses included a $1.5 million gain in the market value of deferred compensation and seed investments, which is recorded as an increase in compensation and benefits with an offset in non-operating income, compared to $2.7 million in the prior year quarter.

News Release
37837694_imageleggmason3312016lma03.jpg


Non-operating expense was $20.2 million, compared to $1.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. Interest expense increased $21.5 million primarily due to the issuance of additional debt to fund the Clarion and EnTrust acquisitions . Gains on corporate investments, not offset in compensation, were $1.3 million compared with losses of $2.8 million in the prior year quarter. The current quarter included a $4.0 million gain on the sale of Legg Mason Poland, while the prior year quarter also included a gain of $6.6 million on an Australian dollar hedge related to the RARE Infrastructure acquisition. Both quarters included gains on funded deferred compensation and seed investments, as described above. In addition, the current quarter also included $0.8 million in gains associated with the consolidation of sponsored investment vehicles, as compared to $1.5 million in losses in the prior year quarter. The consolidation of sponsored investment vehicles has no impact on net income as the effects of consolidation are fully attributable to noncontrolling interests.
Operating margin was 15.5% as compared to negative 36.5% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016 driven by the non-cash impairment charges in that quarter. Operating margin, as adjusted, was 23.9%, as compared to 20.6% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016.
Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, excluding consolidated investment vehicles, was $13.1 million, principally related to Clarion, EnTrustPermal, RARE and Royce, compared to $1.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Supplemental Data Regarding Quarterly Performance

Strategy Performance
For purposes of investment performance comparisons, strategies are an aggregation of discretionary portfolios (separate accounts, investment funds, and other products) into a single group that represents a particular investment objective. In the case of separate accounts, the investment performance of the account is based upon the performance of the strategy to which the account has been assigned. Each of our asset managers has its own specific guidelines for including portfolios in their strategies. For those managers which manage both separate accounts and investment funds in the same strategy, the performance comparison for all of the assets is based upon the performance of the separate account.

Approximately eighty-eight percent of total AUM is included in strategy AUM as of December 31, 2016, although not all strategies have three-, five-, and ten-year histories. Total strategy AUM includes liquidity assets. Certain assets are not included in reported performance comparisons. These include: accounts that are not managed in accordance with the guidelines outlined above; accounts in strategies not marketed to potential clients; accounts that have not yet been assigned to a strategy; and certain smaller products at some of our affiliates.

Past performance is not indicative of future results.  For AUM included in institutional and retail separate accounts and investment funds managed in the same strategy as separate accounts, performance comparisons are based on gross-of-fee performance. For investment funds which are not managed in a separate account format, performance comparisons are based on net-of-fee performance. Funds-of-hedge funds generally do not have specified benchmarks. For purposes of this comparison, performance of those products is net of fees, and is compared to the relevant HFRX index. These performance comparisons do not reflect the actual performance of any specific separate account or investment fund; individual separate account and investment fund performance may differ. The information in this presentation is provided solely for use in connection with this presentation, and is not directed toward existing or potential clients of Legg Mason.


Long-term US Fund Assets Beating Lipper Category Average
Long-term US fund assets include open-end, closed-end, and variable annuity funds. These performance comparisons do not reflect the actual performance of any specific fund; individual fund performance may differ. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Source: Lipper Inc.

Use of Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Information

As supplemental information, we are providing a performance measure for "Operating Margin, as Adjusted" and a liquidity measure for "Adjusted EBITDA", each of which are based on methodologies other than generally accepted accounting principles ("non-GAAP"). Our management uses these measures as benchmarks in evaluating and comparing our period-to-period operating performance and liquidity.

Operating Margin, as Adjusted
We calculate “Operating Margin, as Adjusted,” by dividing (i) Operating Income, adjusted to exclude the impact on compensation expense of gains or losses on investments made to fund deferred compensation plans, the impact on compensation expense of gains or losses on seed capital investments by our affiliates under revenue sharing agreements, amortization related to intangible assets, income (loss) of consolidated investment vehicles, the impact of fair value adjustments of contingent consideration liabilities, if any, and impairment charges by (ii) our operating revenues, adjusted to add back net investment advisory fees eliminated upon consolidation of investment vehicles, less distribution and servicing expenses which we use as an approximate measure of revenues that are passed through to third parties, and less performance fees that are passed through as compensation expenses or net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, which we refer to as “Operating Revenues, as Adjusted”.  The deferred compensation items are removed from Operating Income in the calculation because they are offset by an equal amount in Non-operating income (expense), and thus have no impact on Net Income Attributable to Legg Mason, Inc.  We adjust for the impact of amortization of management contract assets and the impact of fair value adjustments of contingent consideration liabilities, if any, which arise from acquisitions to reflect the fact that these items distort comparison of our operating results with results of other asset management firms that have not engaged in significant acquisitions. Impairment charges and income (loss) of consolidated investment vehicles are removed from Operating Income in the calculation because these items are not reflective of our core asset management operations. We use Operating Revenues, as Adjusted in the calculation to show the operating margin without distribution and servicing expenses, which we use to approximate our distribution revenues that are passed through to third parties as a direct cost of selling our products, although distribution and servicing expenses may include commissions paid in connection with the launching of closed-end funds for which there is no corresponding revenue in the period. We also use Operating Revenues, as Adjusted in the calculation to show the operating margin without performance fees, which are passed through as compensation expense or net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests per the terms of certain more recent acquisitions. Operating Revenues as adjusted also include our advisory revenues we receive from consolidated investment vehicles that are eliminated in consolidation under GAAP.

We believe that Operating Margin, as Adjusted, is a useful measure of our performance because it provides a measure of our core business activities. It excludes items that have no impact on Net Income Attributable to Legg Mason, Inc. and indicates what our operating margin would have been without the distribution revenues that are passed through to third parties as a direct cost of selling our products, performance fees that are passed through as compensation expense or net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests per the terms of certain more recent acquisitions, amortization related to intangible assets, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, if any, impairment charges, and the impact of the consolidation of certain investment vehicles described above. The consolidation of these investment vehicles does not have an impact on Net Income Attributable to Legg Mason, Inc.  This measure is provided in addition to our operating margin calculated under GAAP, but is not a substitute for calculations of margins under GAAP and may not be comparable to non-GAAP performance measures, including measures of adjusted margins of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA
We define Adjusted EBITDA as cash provided (used in) by operating activities plus (minus) interest expense, net of accretion and amortization of debt discounts and premiums, current income tax expense (benefit), the net change in assets and liabilities, net (income) loss attributable to noncontrolling interests, net gains (losses) and earnings on investments, net gains (losses) on consolidated investment vehicles, and other. The net change in assets and liabilities adjustment aligns with the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Adjusted EBITDA is not reduced by equity-based compensation expense, including management equity plan non-cash issuance-related charges. Most management equity plan units may be put to or called by Legg Mason for cash payment, although their terms do not require this to occur.

News Release

We believe that this measure is useful to investors and us as it provides additional information with regard to our ability to meet working capital requirements, service our debt, and return capital to our shareholders. This measure is provided in addition to Cash provided by operating activities and may not be comparable to non-GAAP performance measures or liquidity measures of other companies, including their measures of EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA. Further, this measure is not to be confused with Net Income, Cash provided by operating activities, or other measures of earnings or cash flows under GAAP, and are provided as a supplement to, and not in replacement of, GAAP measures.

We have previously disclosed Adjusted EBITDA that conformed to calculations required by our debt covenants, which adjusted for certain items that required cash settlement that are not part of the current definition.
