Evercore's quarterly results may fluctuate significantly due to the timing and amount of transaction fees earned, as well as other factors. Accordingly, financial results in any particular quarter may not be representative of future results over a longer period of time.

"Our quarterly results reflect the continuing market share gains by our firm, as our independent advisory model is increasingly embraced by corporate leaders, private equity firms, Boards of Directors and large institutional investors. Our net revenues exceeded $200 million for the second time in our history, and this was the second strongest quarter in our history by most important measures," said Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Each of our businesses performed well in the second quarter. Completed M&A assignments and capital markets advisory assignments contributed to our strong second quarter Investment Banking results, reflecting both the large number of assignments completed and the return of transactions generating larger fees. Investment Management benefited significantly from the closing of a $201 million private equity fund in Mexico and investment performance continued to be solid at each of our key platforms. We delivered strong shareholder performance as operating margins were 24.7%, and we returned more than $65.5 million to shareholders, repurchasing more than 1.5 million shares and units and paying dividends of $8.3 million in the quarter."

"Evercore delivered strong Investment Banking results in this quarter. Our revenues of $180 million represent the second best quarterly results in our history, earning fees of $1 million or more from 38 clients and completing 18 underwriting transactions. We are consistently adding new talent to the firm, and did so again this quarter. We launched a Private Capital Advisory business, to be led by Nigel Dawn, and announced the addition of Scott Kamran to our Technology team and Keith Magnus, who will join us to open an office in Singapore, serving clients in Singapore and Southern Asia. Finally, overall, we expect Evercore's investment banking market share to increase again," said Roger Altman, Executive Chairman.

Throughout the discussion of Evercore's business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, which is an unaudited non-generally accepted accounting principles ("non-GAAP") measure. Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), and then those results are adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore's results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore's operating results. Evercore uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.For more information about the Adjusted Pro Forma basis of reporting used by management to evaluate the performance of Evercore and each line of business, including reconciliations of U.S. GAAP results to an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, see pages A-2 through A-11 included in Annex I.These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company's two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management.
