News Release

 

Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter Results

 

Overland Park, KS, Jan. 28, 2010

— Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. (NYSE: WDR) today reported fourth quarter net income of $33.3 million, or $0.39 per diluted share compared to a net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.01) per share during the fourth quarter of 2008 and net income of $33.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share during the third quarter of 2009.

 

The fourth quarter of 2008 included significant restructuring and impairment charges.  Combined, these charges totaled $18.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share.  For comparative purposes, net income and earnings per diluted share excluding these charges would have been $17.4 million, or $0.21 per diluted share.

 

The third quarter of 2009 included a tax benefit from the carry back of capital losses generated in connection with the sale of our subsidiary, Austin, Calvert & Flavin, Inc. (“ACF”), which were partly offset by charges related to the sale of ACF.  For comparative purposes, net income and earnings per diluted share excluding the effects of the sale of ACF would have been $31.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted share.

 

Management believes adjusting results to exclude special and/or non-recurring items provides investors with a more comparable basis for evaluating results and financial performance to other periods.  A schedule reconciling adjusted results to GAAP is included on page 8 of this release.
