LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Janus Henderson Group plc (NYSE/ASX: JHG; ‘JHG’, ‘the Group’) published its first quarter 2020 results for the period ended 31 March 2020.

First quarter 2020 operating income was US$(332.4) million compared to US$154.3 million in the fourth quarter 2019 and US$124.5 million in the first quarter 2019. Adjusted operating income, adjusted for the goodwill and intangible asset impairments and one-time, acquisition and transaction related costs, of US$164.5 million decreased 4% compared to US$171.0 million in the fourth quarter 2019 and increased 15% compared to US$143.4 million in the first quarter 2019.

First quarter 2020 diluted earnings (loss) per share was US$(1.35) compared to US$0.59 in the fourth quarter 2019 and US$0.48 in the first quarter 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share of US$0.60 decreased 8% compared to US$0.65 in the fourth quarter 2019 and increased 7% versus US$0.56 in the first quarter 2019.

First quarter 2020 includes goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges of US$487.3 million.

Dick Weil, Chief Executive Officer of Janus Henderson Group plc, stated:

“At Janus Henderson, our top priority has been looking after the health and safety of our employees and their loved ones. In a short time, we have successfully implemented business continuity plans across all of our offices enabling us to continue to deliver for our clients.

“As an active manager, we have an important role in helping our clients navigate and make sense of volatile markets. We have seen our teams across the firm collaborate more than ever through relevant content, analysis and insights as we collectively work to protect our clients in the near term while maintaining a clear focus on delivering superior outcomes over the long term.

“This is supported by our financial foundation which remains very strong with solid first quarter financial results, US$800 million of cash on the balance sheet and little debt. As you would expect, we are managing our expenses carefully and the focus we have had on cost discipline will also support our positioning through this period. We continue to be a highly cash-generative business, which supports the ongoing needs of the business whilst returning cash to shareholders.

“I am proud of the effort and professionalism displayed by our people during this difficult period, as well as the initiatives we have undertaken to support our local communities and charity partners. Our culture and values are particularly important at times such as these, and I want to thank everyone at Janus Henderson for their commitment and dedication to our clients and each other.”

SUMMARY OF FINANCIAL RESULTS (unaudited) (in US$ millions, except per share data or as noted)

The Group presents its financial results in US$ and in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (‘US GAAP’ or ‘GAAP’). However, JHG management evaluates the profitability of the Group and its ongoing operations using additional non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses these performance measures to evaluate the business, and adjusted values are consistent with internal management reporting. See ‘Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial information’ below for additional information.

First quarter 2020 adjusted revenue of US$442.7 million decreased from the fourth quarter 2019 result of US$463.1 million due to lower average AUM, lower performance fees and partially offset by a higher net management fee margin. First quarter 2020 adjusted operating income of US$164.5 million declined from US$171.0 million in the fourth quarter 2019, primarily driven by the impact of adverse market conditions.

DIVIDEND AND SHARE BUYBACK

On 29 April 2020, the Board declared a first quarter dividend in respect of the three months ended 31 March 2020 of US$0.36 per share. Shareholders on the register on the record date of 11 May 2020 will be paid the dividend on 27 May 2020. Janus Henderson does not offer a dividend reinvestment plan.

As part of the US$200 million on-market buyback programme approved by the Board in February 2020, JHG purchased approximately 2.1 million of its ordinary shares on the NYSE and its CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) on the ASX in the first quarter, for a total outlay of US$31.2 million.

Outperformance is measured based on composite performance gross of fees vs primary benchmark, except where a strategy has no benchmark index or corresponding composite in which case the most relevant metric is used: (1) composite gross of fees vs zero for absolute return strategies, (2) fund net of fees vs primary index or (3) fund net of fees vs Morningstar peer group average or median. Non-discretionary and separately managed account assets are included with a corresponding composite where applicable.

Cash management vehicles, ETFs, Managed CDOs, Private Equity funds and custom non-discretionary accounts with no corresponding composite are excluded from the analysis. Excluded assets represent 6% of AUM as at 31 March 2020. Capabilities defined by Janus Henderson.

The top two Morningstar quartiles represent funds in the top half of their category based on total return. On an asset-weighted basis, 80%, 74%, 82%, 82% and 86% of total mutual fund AUM were in the top 2 Morningstar quartiles for the 10-year periods ended 31 Mar 2019, 30 Jun 2019, 30 Sep 2019, 31 Dec 2019 and 31 Mar 20 respectively. For the 1-, 3-, 5- and 10-year periods ending 31 Mar 2020, 59%, 63%, 62% and 65% of the 202, 194, 182 and 145 total mutual funds, respectively, were in the top 2 Morningstar quartiles.

Analysis based on ‘primary’ share class (Class I Shares, Institutional Shares or share class with longest history for US Trusts; Class A Shares or share class with longest history for Dublin based; primary share class as defined by Morningstar for other funds). Performance may vary by share class. Rankings may be based, in part, on the performance of a predecessor fund or share class and are calculated by Morningstar using a methodology that differs from that used by Janus Henderson. Methodology differences may have a material effect on the return and therefore the ranking. When an expense waiver is in effect, it may have a material effect on the total return, and therefore the ranking for the period.

Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial information

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with GAAP, we compute certain financial measures using non-GAAP components, as defined by the SEC. These measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, GAAP, and our financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. We have provided a reconciliation of our non-GAAP components to the most directly comparable GAAP components. The following are reconciliations of US GAAP revenue, operating expenses, operating income, net income attributable to JHG and diluted earnings per share to adjusted revenue, adjusted operating expenses, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income attributable to JHG and adjusted diluted earnings per share.

1.

JHG contracts with third-party intermediaries to distribute and service certain of its investment products. Fees for distribution and servicing related activities are either provided for separately in an investment product’s prospectus or are part of the management fee. Under both arrangements, the fees are collected by JHG and passed through to third-party intermediaries who are responsible for performing the applicable services. The majority of distribution and servicing fees collected by JHG are passed through to third-party intermediaries. JHG management believes that the deduction of distribution and service fees from revenue in the computation of adjusted revenue reflects the pass-through nature of these revenues. In certain arrangements, JHG performs the distribution and servicing activities and retains the applicable fees. Revenues for distribution and servicing activities performed by JHG are not deducted from GAAP revenue.

2.

Adjustments primarily represent integration costs in relation to the Merger, including severance costs, legal costs and consulting fees. Adjustments for the three months ended 31 March 2019 also include an impairment of sub-leased office space. JHG management believes these costs are not representative of our ongoing operations.

3.

Investment management contracts have been identified as a separately identifiable intangible asset arising on the acquisition of subsidiaries and businesses. Such contracts are recognised at the net present value of the expected future cash flows arising from the contracts at the date of acquisition. For segregated mandate contracts, the intangible asset is amortised on a straight-line basis over the expected life of the contracts. Adjustments for the three months ended 31 March 2020, also include impairment charges of our goodwill and certain mutual fund investment management agreements and client relationships. JHG management believes these non-cash and acquisition-related costs are not representative of the ongoing operations of the Group.

4.

Adjustments for the three months ended 31 March 2020 primarily relate to the gain recognised on the disposal of Geneva during the quarter. Other adjustments include contingent consideration adjustments associated with prior acquisitions and increased debt expense as a consequence of the fair value uplift on debt due to acquisition accounting. JHG management believes these costs are not representative of our ongoing operations.

5.

The tax impact of the adjustments is calculated based on the applicable U.S. or foreign statutory tax rate as it relates to each adjustment. Certain adjustments are either not taxable or not tax-deductible.
