Total operating expenses were $204 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, an increase of 7% when compared with $191 million in operating expenses for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. Employee compensation and benefits expenses were $174 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $165 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. The increase in employee compensation and benefits expenses was primarily a result of the growth in revenues for the quarter.

Total adjusted operating expenses were $193 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, an increase of 5% when compared with $184 million in adjusted operating expenses for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. Adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $164 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $159 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. The increase in adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were primarily a result of the growth in revenues for the quarter. This resulted in an adjusted compensation ratio of 63.5% for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with 64.0% for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Non-compensation expenses were $30 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $26 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016, an increase of 16%. Non-compensation expenses increased primarily as a result of higher general operating expenses during the third quarter ended December 31, 2017. Adjusted non-compensation expenses were $29 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $26 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016, an increase of 12%. Adjusted non-compensation expenses increased primarily as a result of higher general operating expenses during the third quarter ended December 31, 2017.

The provision/(benefit) for income taxes was $(6) million, representing an effective tax rate of (12)% for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $22 million, representing an effective tax rate of 39% for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. The significant decrease in the effective tax rate was a result of (i) the Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts (the "Tax Act") that was enacted into law in December 2017 that resulted in a lower effective federal tax rate; the re-measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities based on the new tax rate; and a one-time deemed repatriation tax on foreign earnings, and (ii) the positive difference between the price of the stock at the time of vesting in October 2017 (accelerated from April/May 2018) and our stock price at the time of grant for the shares that vested. The adjusted provision for income taxes was $21 million, representing an adjusted effective tax rate of 31% for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $24 million, representing an adjusted effective tax rate of 39% for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. The decrease in the adjusted effective tax rate was a result of a lower statutory federal tax rate per the Tax Act.

Segment Reporting for the Third Quarter

For the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, Corporate Finance revenue grew 5% to $129 million, compared with $123 million during the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. The growth in revenues was driven by an increase in the number of closed transactions. CF closed 54 transactions in the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, versus 50 transactions in the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. Segment profit equaled $34 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $40 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. Segment profitability decreased primarily as a result of higher employee compensation and benefits as a percentage of revenues when compared to the same quarter of the prior year.

For the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, Financial Restructuring revenue grew 4% to $94 million, compared with $90 million during the third quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Segment profit was $33 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $25 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016, an increase of 33%. The increase in profitability was primarily a result of lower employee compensation and benefits expenses as a percentage of revenues when compared to the same quarter last year.

For the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, Financial Advisory Services revenue grew 4% to $36 million, compared with $34 million in the third quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Segment profit was $6 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared with $9 million for the third quarter ended December 31, 2016. Segment profitability decreased primarily as a result of higher employee compensation and benefits and increased non-compensation expenses when compared to the same quarter last year.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. You can identify these statements by our use of the words “assumes,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “guidance,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” and similar expressions that do not relate to historical matters. You should exercise caution in interpreting and relying on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control and could materially affect actual results, performance, or achievements. For a further description of such factors, you should read the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income, total and on a per share basis, and adjusted operating expenses are presented and discussed in this earnings press release and are non-GAAP measures that management believes, when presented together with comparable GAAP measures, are useful to investors in understanding the Company’s operating results. Adjusted net income and adjusted operating expenses remove the significant accounting impact of one-time charges associated with the Company’s IPO and other matters, as set forth in the tables at the end of this release.

Adjusted net income and adjusted operating expenses as calculated by the Company are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Additionally, adjusted net income is not a measurement of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to the Company’s financial information determined under GAAP. For a description of the Company’s use of adjusted net income and a reconciliation with net income, as well as a reconciliation of the specific line items in adjusted operating expenses, see the section of this press release titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Financial Information.” Please refer to our financial statements, prepared in accordance with GAAP, for purposes of evaluating our financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows.
