WisdomTree Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

Record $5.9 Billion Net Inflows, 10.8% Market Share

Record Revenues, Up 53% From Year Ago Quarter

Record Net Income $7.9 Million, Up 50% From Prior Quarter, Up Seven Times From Year Ago Quarter

Diluted EPS $0.06

NEW YORK, April 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (Nasdaq:WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") sponsor and asset manager, today reported net income of $7.9 million for the first quarter of 2013, or $0.06 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $1.1 million, or $0.01 per share on a fully diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2012 and $5.3 million, or $0.04 per share on a fully diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg commented, "WisdomTree's net inflows of $5.9 billion represented our best quarter yet and fueled a meaningful acceleration in our organic growth in 2013. The drivers behind this strong top-line growth underscore two important points: First, WisdomTree is innovating and executing at the highest levels — our currency hedged Japanese equity strategy led the entire ETF industry with $3.9 billion of net inflows in the first quarter. Second, we are seeing balanced growth across our platform in important asset classes. In fact, excluding Japan-related assets, we achieved our second best quarter with $1.9 billion in inflows across our dividend-weighted equity and fixed income strategies." 

Mr. Steinberg continued, "Our scalable business model is driving strong top-line growth, expanding margins and earnings. At $27 billion in assets and the fifth largest U.S. ETF sponsor today, WisdomTree has reached an exciting point in our development."

Assets Under Management, Net Inflows and Market Share

ETF assets under management ("AUM") were $25.1 billion at March 31, 2013, up from $15.7 billion at March 31, 2012 and $18.3 billion at December 31, 2012. Net inflows for the first quarter of 2013 were $5.9 billion compared to $2.3 billion in the first quarter of 2012 and $1.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012. WisdomTree's market share of industry net inflows was 10.8% in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 4.3% in the first quarter of 2012 and 1.9% in the fourth quarter of 2012.

First Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 53.1% to a record $29.3 million as compared to the first quarter of 2012 and 24.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher average AUM as a result of record $5.9 billion of net inflows into our ETFs. Our average advisory fee earned was unchanged at 0.54% as compared to the first and fourth quarters of 2012.

Margins

Our gross margin, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 72% in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 63% in the first quarter of 2012 and 68% in the fourth quarter of 2012. The end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon and higher AUM were the primary drivers for the higher gross margin.

Our pre-tax margin was 27% in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 6% in the first quarter of 2012 and 22% in the fourth quarter of 2012 reflecting the operating scale in our business model. 

Expenses

Total expenses increased 19.0% to $21.5 million from $18.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 and increased 17.3% from $18.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Included in the prior periods were non-operating items related to patent litigation, ETF shareholder proxy and secondary and initial exchange listing costs.

  • Compensation and benefits expense increased 27.7% to $7.5 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our record level of net inflows. Our headcount at the end of the first quarter of 2013 was 72 compared to 64 at the end of the first quarter of 2012. 

Compensation and benefits expense increased 21.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation, higher stock based compensation and payroll taxes.

  • Fund management and administration expenses increased 51.2% to $8.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. At the end of 2012, we ended our joint venture with BNY Mellon. As a result, we began to record certain operating costs related to our currency and fixed income ETFs, which were previously recognized by BNY Mellon as part of the joint venture. This resulted in approximately $0.6 million in higher costs. Higher average AUM resulted in a $1.8 million increase in portfolio management, fund administration, accounting, index licensing, regulatory and distribution fees. We also incurred $0.3 million in higher printing related fees due to an increase in the number of holders of our ETFs.

Fund management and administration expenses increased 29.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to the end of the joint venture and higher average AUM.

  • Marketing and advertising expenses increased 46.1% to $1.9 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and increased 19.1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.
     
  • Sales and business development expenses more than doubled to $1.8 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and increased 71.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher levels of sales related initiatives and activities.
     
  • Professional and consulting fees decreased 44.7% to $0.6 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and decreased 22.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to lower variable stock based compensation, which ended as of the end of 2012, partly offset by higher corporate consulting and accounting related fees.
     
  • Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased 25.2% to $0.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. Beginning in the second quarter of 2012, we began occupying office space we had previously sub-leased to a third party. This expense was essentially unchanged compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.
     
  • Third-party sharing arrangements expense declined 93.6% to $0.1 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and declined 91.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 due to the end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon discussed above.
     
  • Other expenses increased 41.4% to $0.9 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and increased 12.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses.

Balance Sheet

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below.  If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:

  • anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets;
     
  • anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our exchange traded funds;
     
  • our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;
     
  • our ability to develop new products and services;
     
  • our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to us at favorable costs;
     
  • competition in our business; and
     
  • the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.

Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:

  • We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.
     
  • Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing WisdomTree ETF shareholders to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.
     
  • Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.
     
  • Most of our assets under management are held in ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.
     
  • We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.
     
  • We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from a limited number of products and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.
     
  • The WisdomTree ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.
     
  • We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and the WisdomTree ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm WisdomTree ETF shareholders.
     
  • We may from time to time in the future be, involved in legal proceedings that could require significant management time and attention, possibly resulting in significant expense or in an unfavorable outcome, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial conditions, results of operations and cash flows.

Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements
 
In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include proforma operating income, proforma expenses and proforma pre-tax operating margin. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We have disclosed our results excluding certain non-operating items including (1) our patent litigation with Research Affiliates LLC; (2) expenses for the WisdomTree ETF shareholder proxy solicitation; and (3) advisory and other related fees associated with the secondary offering of our common stock in November 2012. Management excludes these items when measuring our financial performance as they are not directly related to our core business of being an ETF sponsor and asset manager.
