Company Release - 4/26/2007 1:36 PM ET


To correct a comment made during its first-quarter earnings call this morning, Gary Black, CEO of Janus Capital Group Inc. (NYSE: JNS), issued the following statement regarding its ownership of its INTECH subsidiary:

"Janus Capital Group does not anticipate owning 100% of INTECH. Janus' additional purchases of INTECH in 2006 and 2007 reflect our strong belief in the growth prospects of INTECH, and our view that these purchases create value for Janus shareholders. Janus expects its equity interest to increase over time, but it is important to clarify that Janus sees tremendous benefit in meaningful equity ownership by INTECH employees."
