Dallas, TX, October 24, 2018 – Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG) today reported third quarter 2018 earnings. Highlights from the quarter include:
Revenues of $29.9 million compared with $33.5 million in last year's third quarter and $32.8 million in the second quarter of this year.
Net income of $5.4 million compared with $4.1 million in last year's third quarter and $8.0 million in the second quarter of this year.

At quarter-end, Westwood had $119.1 million in cash and short-term investments, stockholders’ equity of $164.7 million, and no debt.

Revenues of $29.9 million decreased $3.6 million from last year's third quarter on lower average assets under management resulting from net outflows and the sale of the Omaha-based component of our Private Wealth business. Revenues decreased $2.9 million from this year's second quarter on lower average assets under management and the recording of performance-based fees of $1.6 million in the second quarter.

Assets under management at September 30, 2018 totaled $20.8 billion compared to $23.6 billion at September 30, 2017 and $21.6 billion at June 30, 2018.

Third quarter net income of $5.4 million compared with $4.1 million in last year's third quarter. The current quarter benefited from lower compensation expenses after selling the Omaha-based component of our Private Wealth business and reductions in incentive compensation, offset by lower asset-based fees and higher information technology expenses as we continue to invest in our technology infrastructure. The prior year quarter was negatively impacted by a $2.5 million legal settlement charge, net of insurance recovery and taxes. Diluted earnings per share of $0.62 in the current quarter compared to $0.49 in the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP Economic Earnings increased from $9.0 million, or $1.07 per share, in last year's third quarter, to $9.5 million, or $1.11 per share, in the third quarter of 2018.

Third quarter net income of $5.4 million compared with $8.0 million in the second quarter, which benefited from higher asset-based fees, performance-based fees and foreign currency transaction gains. Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of $0.62 compared to $0.94 for the second quarter. Non-GAAP Economic Earnings for the third quarter of $9.5 million, or $1.11 per share, compared to $12.2 million, or $1.43 per share, in the second quarter.
