For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, see "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Selected Summary Financial Information." We believe that presenting our results and measures on an adjusted basis in conjunction with U.S. GAAP measures provides the most meaningful basis for comparison of our operating results across periods.

 

For the fourth quarter of 2013, net revenues from continuing operations on a U.S. GAAP basis were $187.6 million. Net income from continuing operations on a U.S. GAAP basis was $28.0 million, or $1.75 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, net revenues from continuing operations on a U.S. GAAP basis were $525.2 million. Net income from continuing operations on a U.S. GAAP basis was $49.8 million, or $2.98 per diluted common share, in 2013. For a reconciliation of our U.S. GAAP results to the adjusted results, see "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Selected Summary Financial Information."

"We finished the year very strong generating sequential improvement across all areas of the company," said Andrew S. Duff, chairman and chief executive officer. "As a result, we produced our best quarterly revenue since we went public in 2004. Our Equity and Asset Management businesses led the way, supported by our Fixed Income activities which rebounded from difficult market conditions in mid-year."

Duff continued, "We executed effectively on our strategy, which focuses our resources on our strongest, highest margin businesses. For the year, our Revenues, Net Income and most importantly, ROE, improved over 2012. Key execution steps included expanding our resources in public finance and M&A primarily through acquisitions, and significant additions to our Fixed Income business."

Fourth Quarter Results from Continuing Operations - Non-GAAP Basis

Throughout the Adjusted Consolidated Expenses and Business Segment Results sections of this press release the firm presents financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP"). The non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments to exclude (1) revenues and expenses related to noncontrolling interests, (2) amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, (3) compensation for acquisition-related agreements, and (4) restructuring and acquisition integration costs. Management believes that presenting results and measures on an adjusted basis in conjunction with U.S. GAAP measures provides the most meaningful basis for comparison of its operating results across periods. For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures, see "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Selected Summary Financial Information."

Adjusted Consolidated Expenses

For the fourth quarter of 2013, adjusted compensation and benefits expenses were $110.7 million, up 27% and 41% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively, due to improved financial results.

For the fourth quarter of 2013, adjusted compensation and benefits expenses were 60.6% of adjusted net revenues, compared to 61.9% and 62.7% for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively. The adjusted compensation ratio decreased compared to both periods due to an increased revenue base.

Adjusted non-compensation expenses were $29.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, up 5% and 3% compared to the year-ago period and the third quarter of 2013, respectively.

Business Segment Results

The firm has two reportable business segments: Capital Markets and Asset Management. Consolidated net revenues and expenses are fully allocated to these two segments. The operating results of our Hong Kong capital markets business, and FAMCO, an asset management subsidiary sold in the second quarter of 2013, are presented as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Capital Markets

For the quarter, Capital Markets generated adjusted pre-tax operating income of $31.1 million, compared to $19.6 million and $9.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively.

Adjusted net revenues were $155.0 million, up 25% and 45% compared to the year-ago period and the third quarter of 2013, respectively.

  • Equity financing revenues of $34.1 million increased 89% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 due to more completed transactions and higher revenue per transaction. Revenues increased 14% compared to the sequential quarter due to higher revenue per transaction.
  • Fixed income financing revenues were $22.3 million, up 9% compared to the year-ago period due to higher revenue per transaction. Revenues increased 74% compared to the third quarter of 2013 due to more completed transactions and higher revenue per transaction.
  • Advisory services revenues were $35.3 million, down 21% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and up 74% compared to the third quarter of 2013. Revenues were unfavorable compared to the year-ago period due to fewer completed transactions as sellers were motivated to complete transactions during 2012 due to pending tax increases. Revenues increased compared to the third quarter of 2013 due to higher revenue per transaction.
  • Equity institutional brokerage revenues of $26.1 million increased 30% and 14% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively, due to improved trading performance. Also, revenues improved compared to both periods due to higher gains from our equity strategic trading activities, which we began in the second half of 2013 to leverage the firm's intellectual capital and diversify our strategic trading efforts.
  • Fixed income institutional brokerage revenues were $26.5 million, up 18% and 55% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively, due to an improved secondary fixed income trading environment. Revenues also increased compared to the third quarter of 2013 as results from the firm's fixed income strategic trading businesses improved compared to the sequential quarter.
  • Management and performance fees earned from managing our alternative asset management funds were $1.2 million, up 113% and 11% compared to the year-ago period and the sequential quarter, respectively. The increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 was primarily driven by higher assets under management (AUM) from net client inflows.
  • Adjusted investment income, which includes gains and losses on our merchant banking and firm investments, was $11.3 million compared to $0.9 million in the year-ago period and $4.6 million in the sequential quarter. Adjusted revenues increased compared to both periods due primarily to higher gains on our merchant banking investments.
  • Long-term financing expenses, which represent interest paid on the firm's variable rate senior notes and syndicated bank facility, were $1.8 million, down 37% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease was due to additional costs recognized in the fourth quarter of 2012 upon prepayment of the syndicated bank facility. Long-term financing expenses were flat compared to the third quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted operating expenses for the fourth quarter were $123.9 million, up 18% and 27% compared to the prior year quarter and the third quarter of 2013, resulting from higher compensation expenses due to improved operating results and business expansion.
  • Adjusted segment pre-tax operating margin was 20.1% compared to 15.8% in the year-ago period and 9.1% in the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted pre-tax operating margin improved compared to both periods due to leverage on our non-compensation expenses from higher adjusted net revenues.

Asset Management

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, Asset Management generated adjusted pre-tax operating income of $11.0 million, up 103% and 43% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively.

Net revenues were $27.6 million, an increase of 69% and 53% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively, due to higher management and performance fees. Performance fees, the majority of which are recorded in the fourth quarter if earned, were $7.1 million in the current quarter, compared to $0.1 million in the year-ago period and the third quarter of 2013. Net revenues also increased compared to both periods due to higher management fees from increased AUM due to market appreciation.

  • Adjusted operating expenses for the current quarter were $16.6 million, up 52% and 60% compared to the year-ago period and the third quarter of 2013, respectively, due to higher compensation expenses.
  • Adjusted segment pre-tax operating margin was 39.8%, compared to 33.0% in the year-ago period and 42.6% in the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted segment pre-tax margin improved relative to the prior year quarter due to higher adjusted net revenues, and decreased relative to the sequential quarter due to higher compensation expenses.
  • Assets under management were $11.2 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to $9.1 billion in the year-ago period and $10.6 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2013. Increases in AUM have been driven by market appreciation.

Other Matters

In the fourth quarter of 2013, we reversed the full amount of our U.K. subsidiary's deferred tax asset valuation allowance resulting in a $4.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted common share, tax benefit to our results of operations for the quarter.

Fourth Quarter Results from Discontinued Operations - U.S. GAAP Basis

Discontinued operations include the results of our Hong Kong capital markets business, which we shut down in 2012, and FAMCO, an asset management subsidiary we sold in the second quarter of 2013.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the net loss from discontinued operations was $0.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted common share. The net loss was driven by remaining costs related to the sale of FAMCO and the liquidation of our Hong Kong subsidiaries. The net loss from discontinued operations was $3.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted common share, in the year-ago period and a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share, in the third quarter of 2013.

Full-Year 2013 Results from Continuing Operations - Non-GAAP Basis

Adjusted Consolidated Expenses

For 2013, adjusted compensation and benefits expenses were $319.6 million, up 8% compared to 2012, due to improved financial performance. Adjusted compensation and benefits expenses were 61.9% of adjusted net revenues, up from 61.0% in 2012 primarily due to changes in our mix of revenues.

Adjusted non-compensation expenses were $111.0 million in 2013, consistent with the prior year.

Business Segment Results

Capital Markets

For 2013, Capital Markets generated adjusted pre-tax operating income of $52.3 million, consistent with $53.6 million in 2012. Adjusted net revenues were $434.5 million in 2013, up 3% compared to $420.0 million in the prior year.

Adjusted operating expenses were $382.2 million in 2013, up 4% compared to 2012. Adjusted segment pre-tax operating margin was 12.0%, down slightly from 2012.

Asset Management

For 2013, Asset Management generated adjusted pre-tax operating income of $33.5 million, up 35% compared to 2012. Net revenues were $81.9 million in 2013, up 27% compared to 2012 due to higher management and performance fees.

Adjusted operating expenses were $48.4 million in 2013, up 21% compared to 2012, due to higher compensation expenses. Adjusted segment pre-tax operating margin was 40.9% compared to 38.3% in 2012. The increase in adjusted segment pre-tax operating margin in 2013 resulted from improved operating results which were driven by higher net revenues.

Other Matters

During 2013, the firm returned $55.9 million of capital to shareholders by repurchasing approximately 1,720,000 shares, or 11% of our outstanding common stock, at an average price of $32.52 per share. The firm has $39.5 million remaining on its share repurchase authorization, which expires on September 30, 2014.

In 2013, the firm acquired $15.5 million, or approximately 387,000 shares, related to employee obligations on the vesting of equity awards.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and the conference call to discuss the contents of this press release contain forward-looking statements. Statements that are not historical or current facts, including statements about beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. These forward-looking statements cover, among other things, statements made about general economic and market conditions (including the interest rate environment and outlook for equity markets), the market positioning of and prospects for our public finance business , the environment and prospects for capital markets and corporate advisory transactions (including our performance in specific sectors), our integration of Seattle-Northwest Securities Corporation and Edgeview Partners, L.P., the anticipated benefits from our hiring of an investment banking team from Partnership Capital Growth and other hires in our fixed income institutional brokerage business, expected additional costs relating to the sale of FAMCO and the liquidation of our Hong Kong business, anticipated financial results generally (including expectations regarding our non-compensation expenses, compensation ratio, revenue levels, operating margins, earnings per share, and return on equity), current deal pipelines (or backlogs), our strategic priorities (including growth in public finance, asset management, and corporate advisory), or other similar matters.

Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both known and unknown, and important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated or discussed in the forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and important factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • market and economic conditions or developments may be unfavorable, including in specific sectors in which we operate, and these conditions or developments, such as market fluctuations or volatility, may adversely affect our business, revenue levels and profitability;
  • further interest rate volatility, especially if the changes are rapid or severe, could continue to negatively impact our fixed income institutional business;
  • strategic trading activities comprise a meaningful portion of our fixed income institutional brokerage revenue, and results from these activities may be volatile and vary significantly, including the possibility of incurring losses, on a quarterly and annual basis;
  • the volume of anticipated investment banking transactions as reflected in our deal pipelines (and the net revenues we earn from such transactions) may differ from expected results if there is a decline in macroeconomic conditions or the financial markets, or if the terms of any transactions are modified;
  • the expected benefits of the Seattle-Northwest and Edgeview acquisitions and any hires that we make, including the hiring of a team as was done in the case of Partnership Capital Growth, may take longer than anticipated to achieve and may not be achieved in their entirety or at all, and will depend upon our integration of the companies and performance of new hires proving successful; and
  • our stock price may fluctuate as a result of several factors, including but not limited to, changes in our revenues and operating results.

A further listing and description of these and other risks, uncertainties and important factors can be found in the sections titled "Risk Factors" in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in Part II, Item 7 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, and updated in our subsequent reports filed with the SEC (available at our Web site at www.piperjaffray.com and at the SEC Web site at www.sec.gov).
