$0.02 diluted EPS for the quarter, or $0.03 as adjusted

Declares $0.08 quarterly dividend

New York, NY – (GlobeNewswire) – February 3, 2017 – WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (NASDAQ: WETF), an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) and exchange-traded product (“ETP”) sponsor and asset manager today reported net income of $2.5 million or $0.02 diluted EPS in the fourth quarter. Excluding a goodwill impairment charge of $1.7 million, adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure

1) was $4.2 million1 or $0.03 per share1. This compares to net income of $20.5 million or $0.15 diluted EPS in the fourth quarter of last year and net income of $8.0 million or $0.06 diluted EPS in the third quarter of 2016.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg said, “Negative sentiment around our two largest exposures in 2016 overshadowed several noteworthy accomplishments. From an asset gathering standpoint we generated a record $1.9 billion of inflows into our U.S. Equity suite in addition to launching the industry’s most successful new ETF - the WisdomTree Dynamic Currency Hedged International Equity ETF (DDWM).”

Mr. Steinberg added, “The industry is rapidly evolving and we continue to make the global investments necessary in products, people and technology to be a beneficiary of change. During 2016, we enhanced our distribution capabilities including key hires in the institutional and retirement channels, we invested in tools and technology including partnering with and taking a minority stake in AdvisorEngine, and we further expanded our global reach with the launch of locally listed funds in Canada and the buyout of the remaining minority stake in WisdomTree Europe.”

Mr. Steinberg concluded, “Despite the challenges of 2016, we’ve laid the foundation and fundamentals for a successful 2017, and beyond.”
