GAMCO Investors, Inc. (GAMCO) (NYSE: GBL) today announced first quarter 2012 earnings of $23.8 million or $0.90 per fully diluted share versus $17.6 million or $0.65 per fully diluted share in the first quarter 2011.

Revenues were $81.7 million in the first quarter of 2012, up $4.8 million, or 6.3%, from $76.9 million in the prior year quarter. Incentive fees for the first quarter of 2012 were $2.5 million vs. $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2011. Revenues, excluding incentive fees, rose $4.5 million. Operating income before management fee was $31.2 million, a 30.7% increase from $23.9 million in the prior year period. We note, however, that the initial quarter of 2011 was impacted by $5.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, of one-time costs directly related to the launch of a new closed-end fund.

Shareholders’ book value was $421.1 million or $15.81 per share at March 31, 2012. We ended the quarter with cash and investments of approximately $746.2 million and $264.3 million (face value of $285.3 million) of debt.

Assets under Management – Up 7.6% from December 31, 2011 and 3.6% from March 31, 2011

AUM were a record $36.7 billion as of March 31, 2012, an increase of 3.6% from AUM of $35.4 billion at March 31, 2011 and 7.6% above the December 31, 2011 AUM of $34.1 billion. Highlights are as follows:

  • Our open-end equity funds’ AUM were $13.0 billion on March 31, 2012, 5.2% higher than the $12.3 billion on March 31, 2011 and 5.9% above the $12.3 billion on December 31, 2011. Net cash flows out of our open-end equity funds were $135 million during the first quarter of 2012.
  • Our closed-end funds had AUM of $6.1 billion on March 31, 2012, lower by 1.7% from $6.2 billion on March 31, 2011 but increasing 4.6% from the $5.8 billion on December 31, 2011. Net additions to AUM from at-the-market offerings totaled $40 million in the first quarter of 2012, while distributions, net of reinvestments, lowered AUM by $108 million.
  • Our institutional and private wealth management business ended the quarter with $15.0 billion in AUM, rising 2.0% from the $14.7 billion on March 31, 2011 and 11.1% higher than the December 31, 2011 level of $13.5 billion. Net cash flows, which encompasses new and closed accounts as well as additional investments or withdrawals from existing accounts, totaled $367 million in the first quarter of 2012.
  • Our investment partnerships’ AUM were $594 million on March 31, 2012 versus $547 million on March 31, 2011 and $605 million on December 31, 2011. Net cash outflows in the first quarter of 2012 were $26 million.
  • The GAMCO International SICAV, our Luxembourg based UCITS fund which has two sub-funds, the GAMCO Strategic Value and the GAMCO Merger Arbitrage, was initially seeded with $100 million of proprietary money. At March 31, 2012, AUM was $118 million, combining $11 million in net cash inflows with $2 million in market appreciation to climb 12.4% from $105 million at December 31, 2011.
  • AUM in The Gabelli U.S. Treasury Money Market Fund, our 100% U.S. Treasury money market fund, which is ranked #1 by Lipper based on total return among 70 U.S. Treasury Money Market Funds for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2012, were $1.9 billion at March 31, 2012, increasing 21.4% from the $1.6 billion at March 31, 2011 and 5.4% higher from the $1.8 billion at December 31, 2011. We continue to provide financial support to our money market fund through fee waivers and expense reimbursements during this unusually low interest rate environment. 1
  • In addition to management fees, we earn incentive fees for certain institutional client assets, assets attributable to preferred issues for our closed-end funds, our GDL Fund (NYSE: GDL) and investment partnership assets. As of March 31, 2012, assets with incentive based fees were $3.7 billion, 2.6% lower than the $3.8 billion on March 31, 2011 but 2.8% above the $3.6 billion on December 31, 2011. The majority of these assets have calendar year-end measurement periods; therefore, our incentive fees are primarily recognized in the fourth quarter when the uncertainty is removed at the end of the annual measurement period.

For the First Quarter

Revenues

Investment advisory and incentive fees for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012 were $67.8 million, an increase of 7.7% from the $62.9 million reported in the 2011 period:

  • Open-end fund revenues were $31.5 million versus $28.4 million in the first quarter 2011, an increase of 10.9%. Average AUM for open-end equity funds rose 9.6% from the prior year quarter as average AUM for all open-end funds were 11.3% higher at $14.8 billion in the 2012 quarter versus $13.3 billion in the prior year quarter.
  • Our closed-end fund revenues rose 5.1% to $12.3 million from $11.7 million in the first quarter 2011. Average closed-end fund AUM, excluding certain closed-end fund preferred share assets that generate annual performance based fees, rose 4.4% from the prior year quarter. Asset growth was driven by market performance and $40 million from at-the-market offerings of the GAMCO Global Gold, Natural Resources & Income Trust by Gabelli (NYSE: GGN), less distributions, net of reinvestments, from all closed-end funds of $108 million.
  • Institutional and private wealth management account revenues, which are generally based upon beginning of quarter AUM, increased 3.7% to $22.7 million in the first quarter 2012 from $21.9 million in first quarter 2011. The increase was directly related to higher incentive fees and higher AUM. During the first quarter 2012, we earned $2.5 million in incentive fees, an increase of $0.3 million from the first quarter 2011 amount of $2.2 million.
  • Investment partnership revenues for first quarter 2012 were $1.2 million, an increase of 44.4% from $0.9 million in the first quarter 2011.

Our institutional research services generated revenues of $2.3 million in the first quarter 2012, versus $3.6 million in the first quarter 2011 principally due to lower trading volume.

Revenues from the distribution of our open-end funds and other income were $11.6 million for the first quarter 2012, an increase of $1.3 million or 12.4% from the prior year quarter of $10.3 million and were largely driven by higher average AUM in open-end equity funds.

Operating Income and Margin

Operating income, which is net of management fee expense, increased $6.2 million, or 30.1%, to $27.0 million in the 2012 first quarter versus $20.8 million in the prior year period. The year over year increase in operating income primarily results from $5.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, of one-time costs directly related to the launch of a new closed-end fund during the first quarter of 2011 as well as a reduction in non-compensation operating expenses partially offset by an increase in management fee expense and mutual fund distribution costs. Operating margin was 33.0% in the 2012 first quarter versus 27.0% in the prior year period (33.5% excluding the one-time costs previously discussed). Operating income before management fee was $31.2 million in the first quarter 2012, versus $23.9 million in the first quarter 2011. For the first quarter 2012, the operating margin before management fee was 38.2% versus 31.0% in the first quarter of 2011 (38.3% excluding the one-time costs previously discussed). Management believes evaluating operating income before management fee is an important measure in analyzing the Company’s operating results. Further information regarding Non-GAAP measures is included in Notes on Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Table V included elsewhere herein.

Other Income / (Expense)

Other income/(expense), net, was $10.7 million ($0.23 per diluted share net of management fee and tax expense) in the first quarter of 2012 versus $7.8 million ($0.13 per diluted share, net of management fee and tax expense) in the first quarter of 2011. Mark to market gains, largely unrealized, from investments in our mutual funds as well as proprietary capital in our alternative products were $15.1 million versus $10.7 million in the 2011 first quarter. Interest expense was $4.4 million in the 2012 first quarter, $1.5 million higher than the prior year quarter due to an increase in total debt outstanding.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was 36.5% compared to the 2011 quarter effective tax rate of 36.0% and full year 2011 effective tax rate of 36.9%.

Business and Investment Highlights

  • We rebranded the Gabelli Woodland Small Cap Fund to the Gabelli Focus Five Fund, a concentrated fund that will seek to invest up to 50% of the fund in five companies. The Focus Five Fund is based on the strategy of Gabelli & Company’s research report, The Focus Five, published quarterly since January 2006.
  • The Gabelli Dividend & Income Trust, a non-diversified, closed-end fund with $2.0 billion in net assets, expanded its investment team with the addition of Jeff Jonas, CFA. Mr. Jonas joins Mario J. Gabelli, Barbara G. Marcin, Robert D. Leininger, Kevin V. Dreyer and Christopher J. Marangi.
  • During the first quarter of 2012, Gabelli & Company, Inc. hosted several conferences, including our 23rd annual Pump, Valve & Motor Symposium and our 4th annual Movie & TV Broadcasting Conference.
  • Available on the “In the News” and “On the Air” segments of our website are recent interviews with Portfolio Managers including Mario Gabelli, Howard Ward and Caesar Bryan among others as they address world markets, industries and specific stocks. Also available is Howard Ward’s “Top Ten Reason to Own Stocks” (in six languages). Complete articles and interviews are on the Gabelli website at www.gabelli.com/inthenews.html.

During the quarter, GAMCO obtained several new institutional mandates and one new European based subadvisory relationship.

We have signed a letter of intent with a major London based investment firm to act as investment manager to a new Luxembourg domiciled SICAV with UCITS status and employing an investment strategy which is expected to be similar to the Gabelli Merger Arbitrage Fund.

Other Financial Highlights

Statement of Financial Condition

We ended the quarter with approximately $746.2 million in cash and investments versus $674.8 million at December 31, 2011 and $604.9 million at March 31, 2011. This included approximately $99.0 million in available for sale securities at March 31, 2012 of which $62.3 million was in Company sponsored registered investment companies.

We continue to have the flexibility of issuing any combination of senior and subordinated debt securities, convertible debt securities and common and preferred securities under our shelf of up to a total amount of $300 million, which we plan to renew before its expiration in July 2012.

Shareholders’ book value was $421.1 million or $15.81 per share on March 31, 2012 compared to $404.0 million or $15.10 per share on December 31, 2011 and $398.9 million or $14.74 per share on March 31, 2011.

Shareholder Compensation

Dividends

On February 7, 2012, our Board of Directors approved a quarterly dividend of $0.04 per share payable on March 27, 2012 to its Class A and Class B shareholders of record on March 13, 2012.

During 2012, we paid $1.1 million, or $0.04 per share, in dividends, and since our IPO we have paid cumulative dividends of $345.1 million, or $13.46 per share.

GAMCO announced on May 1, 2012 that its Board of Directors approved a special dividend of $0.25 per share to all of its Class A and Class B shareholders in addition to its quarterly dividend of $0.04 per share payable on June 26, 2012 to its Class A and Class B shareholders of record on June 12, 2012. The Board continues to examine its future dividend policy.

Share Repurchase and Stockholders’ Equity

In 2012 to date, we repurchased 224,733 shares at an average price of $44.35 per share for an investment of $10.0 million. Since our IPO, we have repurchased a total of 7.6 million shares at an average price of $40.74 per share for an investment of $308.3 million. There currently remain 348,634 shares available to be repurchased under our existing buyback plan.

Since our IPO of six million shares at a price of $17.50 per share in 1999, we have returned, through dividends and stock repurchases, $653 million to our shareholders.

Fully diluted shares outstanding for the first quarter 2012 were 26.6 million, 1.6% lower than 27.0 million in the first quarter 2011. Diluted shares outstanding were lower in the first quarter 2012 due to shares purchased under our Stock Repurchase Program.

During the first quarter of 2012, the compensation committee of the Board approved the granting of 105,300 RSAs to staff members. At March 31, 2012, we had 375,000 RSAs outstanding.

NOTES ON NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(in millions, except per share data)         3/31/2012         12/31/2011         3/31/2011     Stockholders' book value $ 421.08 $ 403.97 $ 398.85 Shares outstanding   26.63   26.75   27.06 Stockholders' book value per share $ 15.81 $ 15.10 $ 14.74 B.   Operating income before management fee expense is used by management to evaluate its business operations. We believe this measure is useful in illustrating the operating results of GAMCO Investors, Inc. (the “Company”) as management fee expense is based on pre-tax income before management fee expense, which includes non-operating items including investment gains and losses from the Company’s proprietary investment portfolio and interest expense. The reconciliation of operating income before management fee expense to operating income is provided in Table V.   C. Operating income before management fee expense per share and other income, net per share are used by management for purposes of evaluating its business operations. We believe this measure is useful in comparing the operating and non-operating results of the Company for the purposes of understanding the composition of net income per fully diluted share.

Notes on Fund Performance Statistics:

 

The Gabelli U.S. Treasury Money Market Fund (Fund) ranked #1 out of 70 funds for the one-year period ended March 31, 2012, #2 out of 62 funds for the five-year period and #2 out of 47 funds for the ten-year period. The rankings are based on total return over the length of the period. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investment returns and yield will fluctuate. Income will be subject to federal income tax. An investment in the Fund is not guaranteed nor insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any government agency. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. During the respective periods, the Adviser has waived certain fees and reimbursed expenses. Without such reimbursements or waivers, return and rankings would have been lower.

Strong rankings are not indicative of positive fund performance. Absolute performance for some funds was negative for certain periods. Other share classes are available which may have different performance characteristics.   Lipper, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reuters, provides independent insight on global collective investments including mutual funds, retirement funds, hedge funds, fund fees and expenses to the asset management and media communities. Lipper ranks the performance of mutual funds within a classification of funds that have similar investment objectives. Rankings are historical with capital gains and dividends reinvested and do not include the effect of loads. If an expense waiver was in effect, it may have had a material effect on the total return or yield for the period.   Relative long-term investment performance remained strong with approximately 30%, 45%, 63% and 67% of firmwide mutual funds in the top half of their Lipper categories on a one-, three-, five-, and ten-year total-return basis, respectively, as of March 31, 2012.   Investors should carefully consider the investment objective, risks, charges, and expenses of each fund before investing. Each fund's prospectus contains information about these and other matters and should be read carefully before investing. Each fund’s share price will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the fund’s portfolio securities. Stocks are subject to market, economic and business risks that cause their prices to fluctuate. When you sell fund shares, they may be worth less than what you paid for them. Consequently, you can lose money by investing in a fund. You can obtain a prospectus by calling 800-GABELLI (422-3554), online at www.gabelli.com, or from your financial advisor. Distributed by G.distributors, LLC., One Corporate Center, Rye New York, 10580. Other share classes are available that have different performance characteristics.   The inception date for the Gabelli SRI Green Fund was June 1, 2007.
