OPERATING REVENUE

Operating revenue1 was $606 million for the third quarter of 2018, down 3% from the third quarter of 2017, and $2,070 million for the first nine months of 2018, up 5% from the first nine months of 2017.

Financial Advisory

Our Financial Advisory results include M&A Advisory, Capital Advisory, Capital Raising, Restructuring, Shareholder Advisory, Sovereign Advisory, and other strategic advisory work for clients.

Third Quarter

Financial Advisory operating revenue was $304 million for the third quarter of 2018, 1% lower than the third quarter of 2017. The results reflected an increase in M&A Advisory, offset by a decrease in Restructuring.

During the third quarter of 2018, Lazard was engaged in highly visible, complex M&A transactions and other advisory assignments, including cross-border transactions, spin-offs and distressed asset sales, as well as sovereign, capital and shareholder advisory in the Americas, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia.

Among the major M&A transactions that were completed during the third quarter of 2018 were the following (clients are in italics): WGL Holdings’ $6.4 billion sale to AltaGas; Sky on the sale of its stake in Sky Betting & Gaming (“SBG”) as part of SBG’s $4.7 billion sale to The Stars Group; Quality Care Properties on its $3.9 billion sale to Welltower in conjunction with the sale of HCR ManorCare to ProMedica; Daily Mail & General Trust in the £2.5 billion sale of ZPG to Silver Lake; and Servier’s $2.4 billion acquisition of Shire’s Oncology business.

During or since the third quarter of 2018 we have been engaged in a broad range of highly visible and complex restructuring and debt advisory assignments for debtors and creditors. Publicly announced assignments completed during the third quarter of 2018 on which Lazard advised included: Seadrill; Quality Care Properties; and Danaos.

Our Sovereign and Capital Advisory services remained active globally, advising governments and corporations on balance sheet matters, financing strategy and capital raising.

Please see M&A transactions on which Lazard advised in the third quarter, or continued to advise or completed since September 30, 2018, as well as Capital Advisory, Sovereign Advisory and Restructuring assignments, on pages 8 –11 of this release.

First Nine Months

Financial Advisory operating revenue was a record $1,108 million for the first nine months of 2018, 5% higher than the first nine months of 2017.

Lazard advised or continues to advise on a number of significant and complex M&A transactions announced year to date, including: Express Scripts’ $67 billion sale to Cigna; Forest City’s $11.4 billion sale to Brookfield; MassMutual in the $5.8 billion strategic combination of Invesco and OppenheimerFunds; WestRock’s $4.9 billion acquisition of KapStone; SUPERVALU’s $2.9 billion sale to United Natural Foods; and Archer Daniels Midland’s €1.5 billion acquisition of Neovia.

Asset Management

In the text portion of this press release, we present our Asset Management results as 1) Management fees and other revenue, and 2) Incentive fees.

Third Quarter

Asset Management operating revenue was $302 million for the third quarter of 2018, 4% lower than the third quarter of 2017.

Management fees and other revenue was $300 million for the third quarter of 2018, 4% lower than the third quarter of 2017, and 5% lower than the second quarter of 2018. Both comparisons reflected a change in the mix of average assets under management (AUM), as well as lower average AUM in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the second quarter.

Average AUM for the third quarter of 2018 was $240 billion, 3% higher than the third quarter of 2017, and 2% lower than the second quarter of 2018.

AUM as of September 30, 2018, was $240 billion, up 1% from September 30, 2017, and up 1% from June 30, 2018. The sequential increase was primarily driven by market appreciation, offset by foreign exchange depreciation and net outflows of $288 million.

Incentive fees were $2 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $3 million for the third quarter of 2017.

First Nine Months

Asset Management operating revenue was a record $961 million for the first nine months of 2018, 7% higher than the first nine months of 2017.

Management fees and other revenue was a record $941 million for the first nine months of 2018, 8% higher than the first nine months of 2017.

Average AUM for the first nine months of 2018 was $247 billion, 12% higher than the first nine months of 2017. Net outflows were $1.7 billion for the first nine months of 2018.

Incentive fees were $20 million for the first nine months of 2018, compared to $27 million for the first nine months of 2017.

OPERATING EXPENSES

Compensation and Benefits

In managing compensation and benefits expense, we focus on annual awarded compensation (cash compensation and benefits plus deferred incentive compensation with respect to the applicable year, net of estimated future forfeitures and excluding charges). We believe annual awarded compensation reflects the actual annual compensation cost more accurately than the GAAP measure of compensation cost, which includes applicable-year cash compensation and the amortization of deferred incentive compensation principally attributable to previous years’ deferred compensation. We believe that by managing our business using awarded compensation with a consistent deferral policy, we can better manage our compensation costs, increase our flexibility in the future and build shareholder value over time.

For the third quarter of 2018, we accrued adjusted compensation and benefits expense1 at an adjusted compensation1 ratio of 55.8%. This resulted in $338 million of adjusted compensation and benefits expense, compared to $354 million for the third quarter of 2017. The decrease reflected lower operating revenue.

For the first nine months of 2018, adjusted compensation and benefits expense was $1,155 million, compared to $1,114 million for the first nine months of 2017. The increase reflected higher operating revenue.

We manage our compensation and benefits expense based on awarded compensation with a consistent deferral policy. Assuming that the performance of both of our businesses, our hiring levels, and the compensation environment are similar to 2017, we expect our 2018 awarded compensation ratio1 to be in line with the 2017 awarded compensation ratio.

We take a disciplined approach to compensation, and our goal is to maintain a compensation-to-operating revenue ratio over the cycle in the mid- to high-50s percentage range on both an awarded and adjusted basis, with consistent deferral policies.

Non-Compensation Expense

For the third quarter of 2018, adjusted non-compensation expense1 was $109 million, 1% lower than the third quarter of 2017. The ratio of adjusted non-compensation expense to operating revenue1 for the third quarter of 2018 was 18.1%, compared to 17.6% for the third quarter of 2017.

For the first nine months of 2018, adjusted non-compensation expense was $342 million, 2% higher than the first nine months of 2017. The ratio of adjusted non-compensation expense to operating revenue for the first nine months of 2018 was 16.5%, compared to 16.9% for the first nine months of 2017.

Our goal remains to achieve an adjusted non-compensation expense-to-operating revenue ratio over the cycle of 16% to 20%.

 

4


TAXES

The provision for taxes, on an adjusted basis1,2, was $33 million for the third quarter of 2018 and $113 million for the first nine months of 2018. The effective tax rate on the same basis was 23.0% for the third quarter and 21.2% for the first nine months of 2018, compared to 24.6% and 27.2% for the respective 2017 periods.

CAPITAL MANAGEMENT AND BALANCE SHEET

Our primary capital management goals include managing debt and returning capital to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases.

For the third quarter of 2018, Lazard returned $136 million to shareholders, which included: $53 million in dividends and $83 million in share repurchases of our Class A common stock.

For the first nine months of 2018, Lazard returned $724 million to shareholders, which included: $308 million in dividends; $307 million in share repurchases of our Class A common stock; and $109 million in satisfaction of employee tax obligations in lieu of share issuances upon vesting of equity grants.

In the third quarter of 2018, we issued $500 million aggregate principal amount of 4.50% Senior Notes due September 2028. We used part of the net proceeds to retire $250 million of the outstanding $500 million of 4.25% Senior Notes due November 2020, and plan to use the remaining net proceeds for general corporate purposes, including potential repurchases of shares of our Class A common stock.

Year to date, we have repurchased 6.2 million shares at an average price of $52.33 per share. In line with our objectives, these repurchases have more than offset the potential dilution from our 2017 year-end equity-based compensation awards (net of estimated forfeitures and tax withholding to be paid in cash in lieu of share issuances), which were granted at an average price of $56.22 per share.

On October 24, 2018, our Board of Directors authorized additional share repurchases of up to $300 million, which expires as of December 31, 2020, bringing our total outstanding share repurchase authorization to $524 million.

On October 24, 2018, Lazard declared a quarterly dividend of $0.44 per share on its outstanding common stock. The dividend is payable on November 16, 2018, to stockholders of record on November 5, 2018.

Lazard’s financial position remains strong. As of September 30, 2018, our cash and cash equivalents were $1,132 million, and stockholders’ equity related to Lazard’s interests was $1,067 million.

ENDNOTES

1 A non-U.S. GAAP measure. See attached financial schedules and related notes for a detailed explanation of adjustments to corresponding U.S. GAAP results. We believe that presenting our results on an adjusted basis, in addition to U.S. GAAP results, is the most meaningful and useful way to compare our operating results across periods.

2 Third-quarter and first nine-month 2018 adjusted results exclude pre-tax charges of (i) $6.8 million in the third quarter relating to a debt refinancing by Lazard Ltd’s subsidiary Lazard Group LLC, which redeemed $250 million of its outstanding $500 million of 4.25% Senior Notes maturing in November 2020; (ii) $7.7 million and $20.5 million in the third quarter and first nine months, respectively, of costs associated with the implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system; and (iii) $2.4 million, for the nine-month period, of office space reorganization costs primarily relating to incremental rent expense and lease abandonment costs. In addition, third-quarter and first nine-month 2018 adjusted results exclude a benefit of $6.7 million and $16.0 million, respectively, of acquisition-related items, primarily reflecting changes in fair value of contingent consideration associated with certain business acquisitions. On a U.S. GAAP basis, these items resulted in a net charge of $4.4 million, or $0.03 (diluted) per share, in the third quarter, and a net charge of $6.6 million, or $0.05 (diluted) per share, for the first nine months of 2018.
