New York, NY – (GlobeNewswire) – February 1, 2019 – WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (NASDAQ: WETF), an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) and exchange-traded product (“ETP”) sponsor and asset manager today reported a net loss of ($11.6) million or ($0.08) diluted loss per share in the fourth quarter. Adjusted net income (a

non-GAAP measure1) was $10.2 million1 or $0.06 diluted EPS1 (see “Fourth Quarter Financial Discussion” below). This compares to net income of $0.2 million or $0.00 diluted EPS (as adjusted, $5.2 million1 or $0.04 diluted EPS1) in the fourth quarter of last year and net income of $22.0 million or $0.13 diluted EPS (as adjusted, $14.7 million1 or $0.09 diluted EPS1) in the third quarter of 2018.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg said, “In 2018 we made considerable progress on key strategic initiatives of generating sustainable, diversified growth and becoming a leading product and solutions provider to financial intermediaries and institutions. Despite volatility in global capital markets and considerable investor de-risking during the quarter, WisdomTree generated positive annualized organic growth of 2%. The strategic benefits of completing our acquisition of ETF Securities were evident in the fourth quarter, as growth in our commodities products helped offset pressure from the global equity market selloff. In addition, our domestic fixed income product suite continued to scale, reaching over $2 billion of AUM at year end, up from under $500 million at the start of the year. We continued to build out our differentiated solutions program, which combined with our unique product set, allowed us to sign numerous distribution agreements with platforms and intermediaries. We anticipate this will drive stable, diversified organic growth in the years to come.”

Steinberg continued, “WisdomTree is well positioned to offer investors world class investment strategies and business solutions. We are seeing benefits from the investments made in our business and believe we are poised for the firm’s next wave of growth.”
