Review of First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Adjusted Revenues(1) increased 23% to $96.5 million for the first quarter of 2015 from $78.5 million for the first quarter of 2014. The increase was primarily due to a 21% increase in revenues from AUM or AUA to $81.1 million from $67.1 million in the prior year period.

Total operating expenses increased 21% to $89.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $74.5 million in the first quarter of 2014. Cost of revenues increased 12% to $38.7 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $34.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 due to the increase in revenue from AUM or AUA, partially offset by Placemark revenue which is recognized net of manager fees. Compensation and benefits increased 34% to $31.5 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $23.5 million in the prior year period primarily due to the inclusion of Placemark and an increase in headcount to support growth in the business. General and administration expenses increased 17% to $14.2 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $12.2 million in the prior year period, partly due to the inclusion of Placemark.

Income from operations was $6.7 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2014. Net income attributable to Envestnet, Inc. was $2.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $3.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the first quarter of 2015 was $16.8 million, compared to $11.8 million in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted Net Income(1) was $8.2 million, compared to $6.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted Net Income Per Share(1) was $0.22, compared to $0.17 in the first quarter of 2014.

At March 31, 2015, Envestnet had $209.9 million in cash and cash equivalents, and its revolving credit facility was undrawn with $100 million available.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

“Adjusted revenues” exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue. Under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we record at fair value the acquired deferred revenue for contracts in effect at the time the entities were acquired. Consequently, revenue related to acquired entities for periods subsequent to the acquisition does not reflect the full amount of revenue that would have been recorded by these entities had they remained stand-alone entities.

“Adjusted EBITDA” represents net income before interest income, interest expense, accretion on contingent consideration, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, severance, fair market value adjustment on contingent consideration, and pre-tax loss attributable to non-controlling interest.

“Adjusted net income” represents net income before non-cash interest expense, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, severance, amortization of acquired intangibles, accretion on contingent consideration, fair market value adjustment on contingent consideration, and net loss attributable to non-controlling interest. Reconciling items are tax effected using the income tax rates noted in the reconciliation table found in this release.

“Adjusted net income per share” represents adjusted net income divided by the diluted number of weighted-average shares outstanding.

See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this press release. These measures should not be viewed as a substitute for revenues, net income or net income per share determined in accordance with GAAP.
