N/M - Not Meaningful

Long-term assets under management increased 16 percent to $103.9 billion at September 30, 2018 from $89.8 billion at June 30, 2018, as a result of the addition of SGA, market appreciation, and positive net flows. Total assets under management at September 30, 2018 were $105.6 billion, including $1.7 billion of assets in liquidity strategies.
Total sales in the third quarter were $6.3 billion compared with $6.6 billion in the second quarter, as higher sales in retail separate accounts and institutional were more than offset by lower open-end fund sales. Retail separate account sales increased 25 percent sequentially to $0.9 billion, primarily attributable to small/mid-cap equity strategies. There was a 4 percent sequential increase in institutional sales to $1.5 billion, which included meaningful new mandates for three affiliates. Mutual fund sales were $3.8 billion, reflecting an annualized sales rate of 34 percent, compared with $4.4 billion in the prior quarter, which included high levels of domestic equity sales. In the third quarter, domestic equity and bank loan strategies continued to generate strong levels of sales, but declined modestly from unusually high levels in the second quarter.
Total net inflows of $0.5 billion included positive net flows from retail separate accounts and open-end funds and compared with net inflows of $1.3 billion in the second quarter. Net flows in retail separate accounts increased to $358.3 million from $161.4 million in the second quarter primarily as a result of higher sales. Mutual fund net flows were positive for the third consecutive quarter at $0.3 billion, compared with $1.1 billion sequentially. Institutional had modest net outflows of ($0.1) billion as sales, which increased by 4 percent to $1.5 billion, were more than offset by $0.8 billion of partial redemptions from existing accounts and $0.8 billion of outflows from closed accounts.

GAAP Results

Operating income increased sequentially to $33.9 million from $27.3 million, reflecting a 15 percent increase in total revenues partially offset by a 12 percent increase in operating expenses, both related to the addition of SGA, organic growth of assets under management, and performance-related fees. Third-quarter operating expenses included $4.3 million of acquisition and integration costs compared with $2.0 million in the second quarter, with the increase attributable to professional fees related to the closing of the SGA transaction.
Net income per diluted share of $3.19 included a $0.35 per share benefit from discrete tax adjustments, ($0.37) of acquisition and integration costs, and ($0.49) of realized and unrealized losses on investments. Second quarter net income per diluted share of $2.75 included ($0.22) of acquisition and integration costs, ($0.07) of discrete tax adjustments, and ($0.04) of realized and unrealized losses on investments.

Non-GAAP Results
Revenues, as adjusted, of $128.5 million increased 16 percent from the prior quarter as a result of the addition of SGA, an increase in average assets from market appreciation and positive net flows, and a higher average fee rate. The increase in the fee rate reflected both continued positive flows into domestic equity open-end mutual funds and $3.6 million of performance-related fees. Employment expenses, as adjusted, of $61.7 million increased 15% sequentially due to the addition of SGA and an increase in profit-based variable compensation. Other operating expenses, as adjusted, decreased 5% from the second quarter, which included the annual Board of Director's equity grant and higher sales and marketing costs.
Operating income, as adjusted, and the related margin were $48.2 million and 38 percent, respectively, compared with $37.6 million and 34 percent in the sequential quarter. The sequential-quarter margin expansion reflects higher revenues, the addition of SGA, and lower other operating expenses.
Net income attributable to common stockholders, as adjusted, which is net of the noncontrolling interests related to SGA, was $3.64 per diluted common share, an increase of 23 percent from $2.97 in the prior quarter.
Interest and dividends earned on seed and CLO investments, which are not included in net income, as adjusted, were $3.4 million, or $0.30 on an after-tax per-share basis, compared with $4.6 million or $0.39 per share in the second quarter.
The effective tax rate, as adjusted, was 27 percent, compared with 28 percent in the prior quarter, primarily due to the impact of SGA-related noncontrolling interests.

N/M - Not Meaningful


Working capital at September 30, 2018 of $128.2 million increased by 36 percent from June 30, 2018, reflecting net cash generated from the business, the impact of the SGA closing, changes in debt outstanding, and return of capital to shareholders.
The company borrowed $105.0 million of term loan debt and utilized existing balance sheet resources to fund its $129.5 million majority investment in SGA. During the quarter, the company repaid $11.6 million of debt. The net leverage ratio, which is net debt to EBITDA (in accordance with the company's credit agreement), was 0.9x at September 30, 2018 compared with 0.7x at June 30, 2018.
The company repurchased approximately 38,200 shares, or 0.5 percent of outstanding common shares, as adjusted, for $5.0 million during the quarter.
In August, the company declared a $0.55 per share common stock dividend, an increase of 22 percent from the previous quarterly rate. The dividend increase is the first since the company initiated a quarterly dividend in May 2014.

(in thousands except per share data)

The following are reconciliations and related notes of the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure to each non-GAAP measure.

Non-GAAP financial measures have material limitations and should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP measures.
