WisdomTree Announces First Quarter 2020 Results – Diluted Loss Per Share of ($0.06), or Earnings Per Share of $0.07, as adjusted

New York, NY – (GlobeNewswire) – May 1, 2020 – WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (NASDAQ: WETF)

today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2020.

During the first quarter of 2020, market declines arising from the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the market performance of most financial assets and sectors of the economy, including the AUM that we manage. While we have experienced a recent decline in revenue arising from this volatility, we continue to operate without disruption.

$21.9 million of non-cash charges, including (i) a $19.7 million impairment charge related to our financial interests in AdvisorEngine in anticipation of our exit from this investment and (ii) a loss on revaluation of deferred consideration of $2.2 million.

($8.6) million net loss, or $11.21 million net income, as adjusted, see “Non-GAAP Financial Measurements” for additional information.

$50.3 billion of ending AUM, a decrease of 20.9% resulting from the market declines associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

$536 million of net outflows ($182 million of net inflows excluding HEDJ/DXJ), driven by outflows from our international developed market equity and U.S. equity products, partly offset by inflows into our commodity products.

0.43% average global advisory fee, a decrease of 1.0 basis point due to AUM mix shift.

$63.9 million of operating revenues, a decrease of 7.3% primarily due to lower average AUM and a lower average global advisory fee.

77.3% gross margin1, unchanged from the prior quarter.

24.5% operating income margin (25.1%1 as adjusted), a 3.0 point increase (3.1 point increase, as adjusted1) primarily due to reduced discretionary spending as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

$5.0 million of available capital used to pay down debt, in connection with our capital management strategy.

$0.03 quarterly dividend declared, payable on May 27, 2020 to stockholders of record as of the close of business May 13, 2020.

Update from Jonathan Steinberg, WisdomTree CEO

 

 

“The combination of our investments in technology over the past several years and our resilient business model allowed us to seamlessly work through these unprecedented circumstances with no compromise to our high standards of operational excellence and client service. We remain committed to helping our clients navigate these markets, manage their businesses and better serve their customers while protecting our number one asset, our employees.”

 

“Like all asset managers, market declines have impacted our business, but we are responsibly managing costs and WisdomTree remains differentiated, confident and well positioned for the future. March disrupted the strong momentum we had built in the business, but the setback was only temporary, and we remain focused on our 2020 plan of growth, performance and innovation.”
