Total adjusted operating expenses were $153 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016, a decrease of (5%) when compared with $160 million in adjusted operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2015. Adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses were $128 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with $139 million for the same three-month period a year ago. The decrease in adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses was primarily the result of our change on October 1 from a revenue sharing model that historically approximated an awarded compensation ratio of between 67% and 71% to a target adjusted awarded compensation ratio of between 65% and 66%. This resulted in an adjusted awarded compensation ratio of 65% for the fiscal 2016 third quarter, versus 71% for the third quarter last year.

Adjusted non-compensation expenses were $24 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016, compared with $21 million in the prior year period. The increase in adjusted non-compensation expenses was primarily a result of increases in general operating expenses associated with the significant expansion of the Company’s Corporate Finance staff.

Total adjusted operating expenses were $400 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2015, compared with $405 million for the same nine-month period of fiscal 2015. Adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses decreased (4%) to $332 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2016, as compared with $346 million for the same nine-month period a year ago. The decrease in adjusted employee compensation and benefits expenses was due to (i) our change on October 1 from a revenue sharing model that historically approximated an awarded compensation ratio of between 67% and 71% to a target adjusted awarded compensation ratio of between 65% and 66%, and (ii) higher non-compensation expenses that resulted in decreased compensation that was available to employees. This resulted in an adjusted awarded compensation ratio of 67% for the nine months ended December 31, 2015, versus 70% for the same nine-month period a year ago.

Adjusted non-compensation expenses were $68 million in the current year nine-month period, compared with $59 million in the prior year period. The increase in adjusted non-compensation expenses is primarily a result of (i) planned increases in non-compensation expenses as a result of being a public company, and (ii) increases in general operating expenses associated with the significant expansion of the Company’s Corporate Finance staff, especially in Europe.

Segment Reporting

For the third quarter ended December 31, 2015, Corporate Finance revenue increased 15% to $124 million as compared with $108 million during the same period last year. Revenues increased quarter-over-quarter as a result of an increase in the number of closed transactions and a slight increase in the average fee per transaction. Segment profit equaled $35 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, compared with $25 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The increase in profitability was a result of (i) the corresponding increase in revenues, and (ii) our change on October 1 to a target adjusted awarded compensation ratio of between 65% and 66%, as described above. CF increased its Managing Director (“MD”) headcount by 32 from a year ago, primarily as a result of the completion of the Leonardo & Co., MESA Securities, Inc., and McQueen Ltd. acquisitions, as well as opportunistic hires and internal promotions across all industry groups. CF closed 52 transactions in the third quarter, versus 42 transactions in the same quarter last year.

For the third quarter ended December 31, 2015, Financial Restructuring revenue was $50 million, compared with $62 million during the prior year period. The decline in revenues was primarily driven by fewer closed transactions for the third quarter when compared to the same quarter last year, as a result of a moderate restructuring environment over the last couple of years, which impacted current quarter closings and revenues. Segment profit equaled $14 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, compared with $21.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The decline in profitability was a result of (i) the corresponding decrease in revenues, and (ii) fixed and semi-variable costs that did not decline at the same rate as revenues, resulting in lower margins. FR’s MD headcount increased by three from a year ago, and FR closed 14 transactions in the third quarter versus 20 transactions in the same quarter last year, with a slightly higher average transaction fee for each closed transaction.

For the third quarter ended December 31, 2015, Financial Advisory Services revenue was $31 million, compared with $26 million in the prior year period. Revenues in FAS increased primarily as a result of (i) continued activity in the M&A markets (particularly in large-cap M&A), (ii) continued strength in the non-transaction-based product lines with the addition of new clients and growth from existing clients, and (iii) the inclusion of Strategic Consulting revenues, which were not included in the prior year’s quarter. Segment profit equaled $8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, compared with $5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The increase in profitability was a result of (i) the corresponding increase in revenues, and (ii) our change on October 1 to a target adjusted awarded compensation ratio of between 65% and 66%, as described above. FAS’s MD headcount increased by 11 from a year ago as a result of the additional MDs who came from the Bridge Strategy Group acquisition, internal promotions, and opportunistic hires to increase depth across its product lines. FAS generated 506 fee events in the third quarter, versus 422 fee events during the same quarter last year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income, total and on a per-share basis, is presented in this earnings press release and is a non-GAAP measure that management believes, when presented together with comparable GAAP measures, is useful to investors in understanding the Company’s operating results. This release also presents the adjustments to the line items of the income statement that are used to calculate adjusted net income. Adjusted net income removes the significant accounting impact of one-time charges associated with the Company’s IPO and other matters, as set forth in the tables at the end of this release.

Adjusted net income as calculated by the Company is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Additionally, adjusted net income is not a measurement of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to the Company’s financial information determined under GAAP. For a description of the Company’s use of adjusted net income and a reconciliation with net income, see the section of this press release titled “Reconciliation of GAAP to Adjusted Financial Information.” Please refer to our financial statements, prepared in accordance with GAAP, for purposes of evaluating our financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows.
