Exhibit 99.1


Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014
Earnings and Announces Quarterly Dividend
    
New York, January 30, 2015 – Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. (NYSE: OPY) today reported net income of $2.7 million or $0.20 per share for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with net income of $13.3 million or $0.99 per share for the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 79.8%. Income before taxes was $9.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with income before taxes of $23.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 58.9%. The Company's operating results for the fourth quarter of 2014 were significantly impacted by a decrease of $31.9 million in gross incentive fees earned from the Company's participation in hedge funds in its asset management business. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $254.9 million compared with $293.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of 13.1%. Separately, the effective income tax rate was negatively impacted by the non-deductible charges related to two regulatory matters during the six months ended June 30, 2014 (see next paragraph), significantly lowering net income during the fourth quarter of 2014.

For the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company reported net income of $8.8 million or $0.65 per share compared with net income of $25.1 million or $1.85 per share for the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of 64.8%. Income before taxes for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $25.7 million compared with income before taxes of $43.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of 41.4%. The Company's operating results for the year ended December 31, 2014 were significantly impacted by the reduction in gross incentive fees (referred to above) and $19.7 million in charges during the six months ended June 30, 2014 related to two regulatory matters emanating from low-priced securities transactions. The non-deductible nature of these charges had a negative impact on the effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2014. Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $1.0 billion, a decrease of 1.5% compared to the 2013 year.

Equity markets in the U.S. continued to outperform with the S&P 500 returning 4.4% for the fourth quarter of 2014 and 11.4% for the full year 2014, continuing a rally that has now extended to six years. The U.S. economy continued

1



to perform well and easily outperformed all other developed economies. Continued low interest rates coupled with low inflation, despite a wind down of the Federal Reserve's bond buying program, propelled investors into the equity markets. Contrary to consensus forecasts, the yield on the 10-year Treasury decreased finishing the year yielding 2.2%, relying heavily on demand from non-U.S. investors fleeing uncertain markets and weak currencies abroad. The significant increase in domestic production of crude oil combined with reduced demand from weakening economies elsewhere was reflected in the sharp decline in the price of crude oil which ended 2014 at $53.46 a barrel as compared to $98.90 a barrel at the end of 2013.

Albert G. Lowenthal, Chairman and CEO commented, “The Company's revenues reached $1.0 billion in 2014 for only the third time in its history driven by increased fees earned on traditional management products and from mergers and acquisitions activity as well as increased institutional equities commissions. This, however, was more than offset by decreased retail commissions, lower trading profits, decreases in incentive fees earned on alternative products, and lower originations in the commercial mortgage banking business. The Company's operating results for the full fiscal year were particularly hampered by substantially increased legal and regulatory costs in its Private Client business segment.

As reported earlier in the week, the Company has resolved its outstanding issues related to low-priced securities with two regulatory agencies. The Company continues to put legal and regulatory issues that arose during much earlier periods behind it and is taking important steps to prevent a recurrence. We look forward to higher levels of profitability through the considerable improvements in our core capital markets businesses as well as the favorable impact that the expected rise in interest rates will have on our business."

Financial Highlights
Commission revenue was $120.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 1.4% compared with $122.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 due to low transaction volumes from retail investors during the fourth quarter of 2014. For the year ended December 31, 2014, commission revenue was $469.8 million compared with $486.8 million for the comparable period last year, a decrease of 3.5% due to low transaction volumes from retail investors during the 2014 year.
Advisory fees were $72.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2014, a decrease of 25.5% compared with $96.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 due to the decrease in incentive fees referred to above offset by increases in advisory fees on traditional managed products. For the year ended December 31, 2014, advisory fees were $281.7 million compared with $274.2 million for the comparable period in 2013, an increase of 2.7% due to increases in advisory fees on traditional managed products offset by decreases in incentive fees referred to above.
Investment banking revenue decreased 11.7% to $31.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with $35.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 due to a large decrease in equities underwriting fees which was partially offset by increased fees from mergers and acquisitions activity during the fourth quarter of 2014. For the year ended December 31, 2014, investment banking revenue was $125.6 million compared with $98.0 million for the comparable period in 2013, an increase of 28.2% due to increases in equities underwriting fees and fees from mergers and acquisitions activity during the 2014 year.
Principal transactions revenue decreased 52.7% to $4.8 million during the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with $10.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 due to lower trading profits in equities and lower originations of commercial mortgages during the fourth quarter of 2014. For the year ended December 31, 2014, principal transactions revenue was $29.7 million compared with $43.8 million for the comparable period in 2013, a decrease of 32.1% due to lower trading profits in equities and fixed income and lower originations of commercial mortgages during the 2014 year.

Provision for Income Taxes

The effective income tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2014 was 71.4% compared with 41.4% for the fourth quarter of 2013. The significant increase in the effective income tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2014 was due to the impact of non-deductible charges associated with the low-priced securities regulatory matters that were recorded during the first and second quarters of 2014 and their size relative to the amount that was originally estimated for income before income taxes versus the actual income before income taxes for the full fiscal year ended December 31, 2014. The Company is required to use its best estimate to arrive at an effective annual tax rate for quarterly reporting purposes in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 270, Interim Reporting.

Non-compensation expenses were $314.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2014, an increase of 4.7% compared to $299.9 million during the 2013 year due to higher legal and regulatory costs partially offset by lower debt service costs on the outstanding Senior Secured Notes during the 2014 year.

Provision for Income Taxes

The effective income tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2014 was 62.8% compared with 40.4% for the 2013 year. The significant increase in the effective income tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2014 was due to the impact of non-deductible charges associated with the low-priced securities regulatory matters that were recorded during the first and second quarters of 2014.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At December 31, 2014, total equity was $533.7 compared with $527.9 million at December 31, 2013.
At December 31, 2014, book value per share was $38.71 (compared with $38.77 at December 31, 2013) and tangible book value per share was $26.27 (compared with $26.19 at December 31, 2013).
The Company’s level 3 assets, primarily auction rate securities, were $108.7 million at December 31, 2014 (compared with $93.7 million at December 31, 2013). The increase in level 3 assets was due to increases in auction rate securities, interest rate lock commitments, and firm investments in private equity funds it sponsored during the 2014 year.
