GREENHILL & CO. REPORTS FIRST QUARTER LOSS PER SHARE OF $0.02

 

    Total quarterly revenues of $56.9 million, down 15% from prior year’s first quarter as completion fees for the quarter related to relatively small transactions

 

    Compensation costs similar to last year’s first quarter, but compensation ratio elevated as a result of lower revenues

 

    Earnings negatively impacted by tax charge of $2.1 million related to mandatory new accounting for tax effect of vesting of restricted stock awards, which resulted in reported net loss

 

    Repurchased 423,556 shares of our common stock equivalents during the quarter from our employees in settlement of tax liabilities upon vesting of restricted stock units

 

    Recruited 6 Managing Directors, including 2 who extend our reach into the Spanish market

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, April 27, 2017 – Greenhill & Co., Inc. (NYSE: GHL) today reported revenues of $56.9 million, a net loss allocated to common stockholders of $0.7 million and a diluted loss per share of $0.02 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

The Firm’s first quarter earnings results were negatively impacted by a tax charge of $2.1 million, which was required under new accounting guidance effective for 2017 related to the tax effect, at the time of the vesting of restricted stock awards, of the difference between the grant price value and the market price value of the awards. Prior to this accounting change, we reported the tax effect of the vesting of restricted stock awards as an adjustment to equity and not to the provision for income taxes. Excluding this charge, and if we had reported under accounting guidance prior to 2017, the Firm’s first quarter 2017 net income allocated to common stockholders would have been $1.4 million and diluted earnings per share would have been $0.04.

The Firm’s first quarter 2017 revenues compare to revenues of $66.9 million for the first quarter of 2016, which represents a decrease of $10.0 million, or 15%. The Firm’s first quarter net loss allocated to common stockholders and diluted loss per share compare to net income of $4.4 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.14 for the first quarter of 2016.

The Firm’s revenues and net income can fluctuate materially depending on the number, size and timing of completed transactions on which it advised and other factors. Accordingly, the revenues and net income in any particular period may not be indicative of future results.
