Fourth-Quarter Business Commentary:

  • Revenues increased in fourth-quarter 2012 as compared to both fourth-quarter 2011 and third-quarter 2012. This was driven by an increase in Asset management, administration, and distribution fee revenues resulting from increased cash flows from new and existing clients and market appreciation in 2012.

  • Net income attributable to SEI increased in fourth-quarter 2012 as compared to both fourth-quarter 2011 and third-quarter 2012. This was driven by the increase in fourth-quarter 2012 revenues when compared to both periods.

  • Our average assets under management, excluding LSV, increased $22.0 billion, or 19 percent, to $138.5 billion in the fourth-quarter 2012, as compared to $116.5 billion during the fourth-quarter 2011, and increased $5.9 billion, or four percent, as compared to $132.6 billion during the third-quarter 2012 (See attached Ending and Average Asset Balances schedules for further details).

  • Sales events, net of client losses, during fourth-quarter 2012 totaled approximately $27.0 million and are expected to generate net annualized recurring revenues of approximately $21.7 million when contract values are fully realized.

  • Income from LSV increased in fourth-quarter 2012 to $25.0 million as compared to $23.4 million in fourth-quarter 2011 due to an increase in assets under management. Our ownership interest in LSV was approximately 40 percent in fourth-quarter 2012 and 41 percent in fourth-quarter 2011.

  • Equity in the earnings of unconsolidated affiliates was negatively impacted $1.3 million in fourth-quarter 2012 as a result of our cumulative share of the operating losses related to an ownership position we hold in a Shanghai-based wealth management firm.

  • In fourth-quarter 2012, we sold the SIV security, Gryphon, and as a result of the sale we no longer own any SIV securities. Net income attributable to SEI includes gains from SIV securities of $5.9 million in fourth-quarter 2012 compared to losses of $0.7 million in fourth-quarter 2011 and a gain of $3.4 million in third-quarter 2012.

  • The effective tax rates were 35.0 percent in fourth-quarter 2012 and 34.7 percent in fourth-quarter 2011 and 39.0 percent in third-quarter 2012. The decrease in the tax rate in fourth-quarter 2012 as compared to third-quarter 2012 was due to the accrual of taxes on the cumulative undistributed earnings of SEI Asset Korea in third-quarter 2012. As a result of the expected sale of SEI Asset Korea, we no longer consider the undistributed earnings to be indefinitely reinvested and therefore accrued U.S. deferred taxes on the cumulative undistributed earnings of SEI Asset Korea.

  • On January 3, 2013, President Barack Obama signed into law the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (the Act), which reinstated the research and development credit retroactively from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013. The accounting rules require the determination of current and deferred taxes be based upon the provisions of the enacted tax law as of the balance sheet date. Since the Act was not signed into law until January 2, 2013, the effect was not reflected in the tax provision for 2012. The effect of the 2012 research and development tax credit will be reflected in first-quarter 2013.

  • In fourth-quarter 2012, we purchased 1.9 million shares of our common stock for $41.7 million.
