Silvercrest Asset Management Group Inc. Reports Q4 and Year-end 2016 Results

NEW YORK, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Silvercrest Asset Management Group Inc. (NASDAQ: SAMG) (the "Company" or "Silvercrest") today reported the results of its operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

Business Update

Silvercrest continued its history of delivering organic growth in both its core family wealth business and institutional business during the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016. Silvercrest added approximately $100 million in newly committed client accounts and assets. We remain proud of Silvercrest's ability to maintain its history of organic growth.

Strong investment performance during the fourth quarter contributed additional growth of approximately $500 million in discretionary assets. Combined with Silvercrest's organic growth, during the fourth quarter, discretionary assets increased approximately $600 million to $13.8 billion as of December 31, 2016, a 14% increase in discretionary assets under management for the calendar year 2016. The firm has continued its growth while maintaining its fee basis for assets under management and margins, and investing in the business for future growth.

Importantly, Silvercrest's proprietary value equity strategies continued their strong performance with outstanding results for 2016. Each of the firm's six primary equity strategies have outperformed their relevant benchmarks for nearly all measured periods, as well as since inception. We are enormously proud of this achievement during a time when many active managers have struggled on a relative basis.

We believe Silvercrest's growth, culture and premier brand in the fast-growing RIA business, makes it a desirable business partner. We remain optimistic about complementing our organic growth with accretive acquisitions to add professional talent and broaden our high net worth network of clients.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Total Assets Under Management ("AUM") of $18.6 billion, inclusive of discretionary AUM of $13.8 billion and non-discretionary AUM of $4.8 billion at December 31, 2016.

AUM Increased to $18.6 billion

Silvercrest's discretionary assets under management increased by $1.7 billion, or 14.1%, to $13.8 billion at December 31, 2016 from $12.1 billion at December 31, 2015.  The increase was attributable to market appreciation of $1.3 billion and net client inflows of $0.4 billion.  Silvercrest's AUM increased by $0.5 billion, or 2.8%, to $18.6 billion at December 31, 2016 from $18.1 billion at December 31, 2015.  The increase was attributable to market appreciation of $1.0 billion, partially offset by net client outflows of $0.5 billion.

Silvercrest's discretionary assets under management increased by $0.5 billion, or 4.3%, to $12.1 billion at December 31, 2015 from $11.6 billion at December 31, 2014.  The increase was attributable to net client inflows of $0.9 billion, partially offset by market depreciation of $0.4 billion.  Silvercrest's AUM increased by $0.2 billion, or 1.1%, to $18.1 billion at December 31, 2015 from $17.9 billion at December 31, 2014.  The increase was attributable to net client inflows of $0.9 billion, which include $0.7 billion of AUM related to our acquisition of Jamison, Eaton & Wood, Inc. ("the Jamison Acquisition") on June 30, 2015, partially offset by $0.7 billion in market depreciation.

Fourth Quarter 2016 vs. Fourth Quarter 2015

Revenue increased by $2.0 million, or 10.3%, to $21.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, from $19.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. This increase was driven primarily by growth in our management and advisory fees as a result of increased AUM. 

Total expenses increased by $2.6 million, or 17.0%, to $17.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $15.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Compensation and benefits expense increased by $2.5 million, or 22.5%, to $13.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $11.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the accrual for bonuses of $2.2 million and an increase in salary expense of $0.3 million as a result of both merit-based increases and increased headcount.  General and administrative expenses increased by $0.1 million, or 2.4%, to $4.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 from $4.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. This increase was primarily due to an increase in occupancy and related costs of $0.1 million, an increase to our accounts receivable reserve of $0.3 million in conjunction with increased revenue levels, a change in the fair value of estimated earnout payments of $0.3 million and an increase in travel and entertainment expenses of $0.1 million, partially offset by a decrease in professional fees of $0.2 million and a decrease in sub-advisory fees of $0.4 million.

Consolidated net income was $2.5 million or 11.7% of revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2016 as compared to $2.2 million or 11.3% of revenue for the same period in the prior year.  Net income attributable to Silvercrest was $1.3 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2016.   Our Adjusted Net Income1 was $2.6 million, or $0.20 per adjusted basic share and $0.19 per adjusted diluted share2 for the three months ended December 31, 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA1 was $5.9 million or 27.8% of revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2016 as compared to $5.8 million or 30.0% of revenue for the same period in the prior year.

Year Ended December 31, 2016 vs. Year Ended December 31, 2015

Revenue increased by $5.1 million, or 6.8%, to $80.3 million for year ended December 31, 2016, from $75.1 million for year ended December 31, 2015. This increase was driven primarily by growth in our management and advisory fees as a result of increased assets under management mainly as a result of the Jamison Acquisition, and, to a lesser extent, by growth in our family office services fees, mainly as a result of the Cappiccille Acquisition.  Revenue related to the Jamison Acquisition for the year ended December 31, 2016 was $4.9 million and for the six months ended December 31, 2015 was $2.6 million.  Revenue related to the acquisition of Cappiccille & Company, LLC for the year ended December 31, 2016 was $0.6 million.

Total expenses increased by $7.4 million, or 12.8%, to $65.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 from $58.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. This increase was primarily attributable to increases in compensation and benefits expense of $6.1 million and an increase in general and administrative expenses of $1.3 million.  The increase in compensation and benefits expense was primarily attributable to an increase in the accrual for bonuses of $2.5 million, an increase in benefits costs of $0.2 million, an increase in equity-based compensation of $1.7 million due to the granting of restricted stock units in August 2015 and May 2016 and an increase in salaries expense of $1.7 million primarily as a result of both merit-based increases and increased headcount due to the Jamison and Cappiccille acquisitions.  The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to an increase in investment research costs of $0.2 million, mainly as a result of the Jamison Acquisition, an increase in occupancy and related costs of $0.1 million, an increase in client reimbursements of $0.1 million, an increase in business taxes of $0.1 million, an increase to our accounts receivable reserve of $0.3 million in conjunction with increased revenue levels, an increase in the fair value of earnout payments related to the acquisitions of Milbank Winthrop & Co. and Jamison of $0.4 million and an increase in depreciation and amortization of $0.3 million due primarily to intangibles acquired as part of the Jamison Acquisition.  This was partially offset by a decrease in professional fees of $0.2 million.

Consolidated net income was $10.0 million or 12.4% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 as compared to $10.7 million or 12.4% of revenue for the same period in the prior year.  Net income attributable to Silvercrest was $5.0 million, or $0.62 per basic and diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2016. 

Silvercrest's Adjusted Net Income1 was $9.8 million, or $0.76 and $0.72 per adjusted basic and diluted share2, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA1 was $22.5 million or 28.0% of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 as compared to $21.9 million or 29.1% of revenue for the same period in the prior year.











1

Adjusted measures are non-GAAP measures and are explained and reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in Exhibits 3 and 4.

Adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share measures for the year ended December 31, 2016 are based on the number of shares of Class A common stock and Class B common stock outstanding as of December 31, 2016.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share are further based on the addition of unvested deferred equity units, restricted stock units, and performance units to the extent dilutive at the end of the reporting period.

We have computed average AUM by averaging AUM at the beginning of the applicable period and AUM at the end of the applicable period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents were $37.5 million at December 31, 2016, compared to $31.6 million at December 31, 2015. Silvercrest L.P. had notes payable of $2.5 million at December 31, 2016 and $4.5 million at December 31, 2015.  As of December 31, 2016, there was nothing outstanding on our revolving credit facility with City National Bank. 

Total Silvercrest Asset Management Group Inc.'s equity was $47.3 million at December 31, 2016.  We had 8,074,197 million shares of Class A common stock outstanding and 4,866,303 million shares of Class B common stock outstanding at December 31, 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional insight, promote transparency and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making, we supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with GAAP with Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Earnings Per Share which are non-GAAP financial measures of earnings.  These adjustments, and the non-GAAP financial measures that are derived from them, provide supplemental information to analyze our operations between periods and over time. Investors should consider our non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

  • EBITDA represents net income before provision for income taxes, interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization.
  • We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA without giving effect to the Delaware franchise tax, professional fees associated with acquisitions or financing transactions, gains on extinguishment of debt or other obligations related to acquisitions, impairment charges and losses on disposals or abandonment of assets and leaseholds, client reimbursements and fund redemption costs, severance and other similar expenses, but including partner incentive allocations, prior to our initial public offering, as an expense. We feel that it is important to management and investors to supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis with Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure of earnings, as this measure provides a perspective of recurring earnings of the Company, taking into account earnings attributable to both Class A and Class B shareholders.
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. We feel that it is important to management and investors to supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis with Adjusted EBITDA Margin, a non-GAAP financial measure of earnings, as this measure provides a perspective of recurring profitability of the Company, taking into account profitability attributable to both Class A and Class B shareholders.
  • Adjusted Net Income represents recurring net income without giving effect to professional fees associated with acquisitions or financing transactions, losses on forgiveness of notes receivable from our principals, gains on extinguishment of debt or other obligations related to acquisitions, impairment charges and losses on disposals or abandonment of assets and leaseholds, client reimbursements and fund redemption costs, severance and other similar expenses, but including partner incentive allocations, prior to our initial public offering, as an expense. Furthermore, Adjusted Net Income includes income tax expense assuming a blended corporate rate of 40%. We feel that it is important to management and investors to supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis with Adjusted Net Income, a non-GAAP financial measure of earnings, as this measure provides a perspective of recurring income of the Company, taking into account income attributable to both Class A and Class B shareholders.
  • Adjusted Earnings Per Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the actual Class A and Class B shares outstanding as of the end of the reporting period for basic Adjusted Earnings Per Share, and to the extent dilutive, we add unvested deferred equity units, restricted stock units and performance units to the total shares outstanding to compute diluted Adjusted Earnings Per Share. As a result of our structure, which includes a non-controlling interest, we feel that it is important to management and investors to supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis with Adjusted Earnings Per Share, a non-GAAP financial measure of earnings, as this measure provides a perspective of recurring earnings per share of the Company as a whole as opposed to being limited to our Class A common stock.

(b)

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, respectively, represents $84 and $310 of accrued earnout related to our Richmond, VA office expansion.  For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, respectively, represents $71 and $292 of accrued earnout and $0 and $69 of professional fees related to our Richmond, VA office expansion. 



(c) 

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, respectively, represents a sign on bonus of $102 and $364 paid to a new employee, compensatory incentive fees of $322 and $322 paid to a former Marathon Capital Group, LLC principal, costs associated with the upgrade of our telephone system of $24 and $82, software implementation costs of $0 and $13, professional fees related to a mock compliance audit of $0 and $78, professional fees related to a mock Sarbanes 404 audit of $43 and $43, a fair value adjustment to the Milbank contingent purchase price consideration of $80 and $80, a fair value adjustment to the Jamison contingent purchase price consideration of $79 and $79 and a true-up adjustment to our tax receivable agreement of $30 and $152.  This was partially offset by a fair value adjustment to the Cappiccille contingent purchase price consideration of ($7) and ($7).  For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, respectively, represents professional fees of $0 and $57 related to the initial award agreements of restricted stock unit grants, relocation expenses for a specific partner of $28 and $28, software implementation costs of $40 and $40, professional fees of $49 and $49 related to a telecom project and compensatory incentive fees of $11 and $11 paid to a former Marathon Capital Group, LLC principal.  This was offset by a fair value adjustment to the Milbank contingent purchase price consideration of ($82) and ($82), a fair value adjustment to the Jamison contingent purchase price consideration of ($87) and ($87) and a true-up adjustment to our tax receivable agreement of ($219) and ($1,209). The adjustment in fair value of the tax receivable agreement is the result in a reduction in future effective corporate tax rate in New York City as a result of a law change. The reduction in the future effective corporate tax rate will result in less tax benefits being recognized by the Company from future amortization reducing its liability pursuant to the tax receivable agreement.
