LEADERSHIP COMMENTARY

John S. Weinberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, "We reported the strongest first quarter net revenues and earnings in our history. Record first quarter Advisory revenues were driven by the high volume of completed transactions across a broad array of sectors and capabilities. While our backlogs remain strong, we are closely monitoring factors that could weigh on global M&A activity in the intermediate-term, including the war in Ukraine, mounting inflationary pressures, supply chain constraints and rising rates. In terms of talent, we are actively investing at all levels across the firm, as human capital remains the most important investment we make in our business. We are pleased to have two Advisory Senior Managing Directors join us so far this year and two others committed to joining later this year. Lastly, we continue our commitment to returning capital which is not needed to be invested in the business. This quarter, we announced a share repurchase authorization of $1.4 billion, repurchased 2.0 million shares and increased our quarterly dividend to $0.72 per share."

Roger C. Altman, Founder and Senior Chairman, "The Firm generated strong results during this past quarter and 2022 will be another year of deepening our pool of talent and our array of services to clients."

Evercore's quarterly results may fluctuate significantly due to the timing and amount of transaction fees earned, as well as other factors. Accordingly, financial results in any particular quarter may not be representative of future results over a longer period of time.

Business Segments:

Evercore's business results are categorized into two segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. Investment Banking includes providing advice to clients on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and other strategic corporate transactions, as well as services related to securities underwriting, private placement services and commissions for agency-based equity trading services and equity research. Investment Management includes Wealth Management and interests in private equity funds which are not managed by the Company, as well as advising third-party investors through affiliates. See pages A-2 to A-8 for further information and reconciliations of these segment results to our U.S. GAAP consolidated results.

Non-GAAP Measures:

Throughout this release certain information is presented on an adjusted basis, which is a non-GAAP measure. Adjusted results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), and then those results are adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of certain Evercore LP Units into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed adjusted measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore's results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore's operating results. Evercore uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The gain on the sale of a portion of the Company's interests in ABS in the first quarter of 2022 has been excluded from Adjusted Net Revenues.

Evercore's Adjusted Diluted Shares Outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were higher than U.S. GAAP, as a result of the inclusion of certain Evercore LP Units and Unvested Restricted Stock Units.

Further details of these adjustments, as well as an explanation of similar amounts for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are included in pages A-2 to A-8.

Assets Under Management includes Evercore assets which are managed by Evercore Wealth Management of $0.3 million and $76.4 million as of March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Advisory Fees First quarter Advisory Fees increased $112.6 million, or 22%, year-over-year, reflecting growth in average fee size driven by a number of large fees during the first quarter.

Underwriting Fees First quarter Underwriting Fees decreased $43.0 million, or 54%, year-over-year, reflecting a decrease in the number of transactions we participated in due to the decline in overall market issuances.

Commissions and Related Revenue First quarter Commissions and Related Revenue decreased $2.6 million, or 5%, year-over-year, primarily reflecting lower trading volumes, partially offset by increased revenues from research subscriptions and convertible securities.

Asset Management and Administration Fees First quarter Asset Management and Administration Fees increased $2.2 million, or 14%, year-over-year, driven by an increase in fees from Wealth Management clients as associated AUM increased 9%, primarily from market appreciation.

Other Revenue First quarter Other Revenue, net, decreased $8.7 million year-over-year, primarily driven by lower performance of our investment funds portfolio due to the overall market decline. The portfolio is used as an economic hedge against our deferred cash compensation program. This was partially offset by a $1.3 million gain on the sale of a portion of our interests in ABS during the first quarter of 2022.

Employee Compensation and Benefits First quarter Employee Compensation and Benefits increased $34.3 million, or 9%, year-over-year, in line with the increase in Net Revenues. The first quarter compensation ratio was 59.4% versus 59.7% for the prior year period. See "Deferred Compensation" for more information.

Non-Compensation Costs First quarter Non-Compensation Costs increased $11.0 million, or 15%, year-over-year, primarily driven by an increase in travel and related expenses, as travel began to resume during the fourth quarter of 2021, as well as higher professional fees. The first quarter Non-Compensation ratio of 11.6% increased from 11.0% for the prior year period.

Effective Tax Rate

The first quarter effective tax rate was 16.4% versus 16.1% for the prior year period. The effective tax rate is principally impacted by the deduction associated with the appreciation in the Firm's share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above the original grant price. The first quarter provision for income taxes reflects an additional tax benefit of $19.0 million versus $16.7 million for the prior year period, due to the net impact associated with the appreciation in our share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above the original grant price.

Non-Compensation Costs First quarter adjusted Non-Compensation Costs increased $11.1 million, or 15%, year-over-year, primarily driven by an increase in travel and related expenses, as travel began to resume during the fourth quarter of 2021, as well as higher professional fees.

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate

The first quarter adjusted effective tax rate was 17.1%, flat versus the prior year period.

The first quarter adjusted provision for income taxes for 2022 reflects an additional tax benefit of $19.6 million versus $17.7 million for the prior year period, due to the net impact associated with the appreciation in our share price upon vesting of employee share-based awards above the original grant price.

The Company recognized compensation expense related to RSUs and our deferred cash compensation program of $91.2 million and $82.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company has approximately 5.7 million unvested RSUs with an aggregate grant date fair value of $648.2 million. RSUs are expensed over the service period of the award, subject to retirement eligibility, and generally vest over four years.

Adjusted Results

Throughout the discussion of Evercore's business and elsewhere in this release, information is presented on an Adjusted basis, which is a non-generally accepted accounting principles ("non-GAAP") measure. Adjusted results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of certain Evercore LP Units, as well as Unvested Restricted Stock Units, into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore's results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore's operating results. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These Adjusted amounts are allocated to the Company's two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. The differences between the Adjusted and U.S. GAAP results are as follows:

  1. Assumed Exchange of Evercore LP Units into Class A Shares. The Adjusted results assume substantially all Evercore LP Units have been exchanged for Class A shares. Accordingly, the noncontrolling interest related to these units is converted to a controlling interest. The Company's management believes that it is useful to provide the per-share effect associated with the assumed conversion of substantially all of these previously granted equity interests and IPO related restricted stock units, and thus the Adjusted results reflect their exchange into Class A shares.
  2. Adjustments Associated with Business Combinations and Divestitures. The following charges resulting from business combinations and divestitures have been excluded from the Adjusted results because the Company's Management believes that operating performance is more comparable across periods excluding the effects of these acquisition-related charges:
    1. Acquisition and Transition Costs. Primarily professional fees incurred and costs related to transitioning acquisitions or divestitures.
    2. Gain on Sale of Interests in ABS. The gain on the sale of a portion of the Company's interests in ABS in the first quarter of 2022 is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.
  3. Income Taxes. Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, C-Corporations and a Public Corporation in the U.S. as the ultimate parent. Certain of the subsidiaries, particularly Evercore LP, have noncontrolling interests held by management or former members of management. As a result, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate level taxes and certain other state and local taxes are levied. The assumption in the Adjusted earnings presentation is that substantially all of the noncontrolling interest is eliminated through the exchange of Evercore LP units into Class A common stock of the ultimate parent. As a result, the Adjusted earnings presentation assumes that the allocation of earnings to Evercore LP’s noncontrolling interest holders is substantially eliminated and is therefore subject to statutory tax rates of a C-Corporation under a conventional tax structure in the U.S. and that certain state and local taxes are reduced accordingly.
  4. Presentation of Interest Expense. The Adjusted results present Adjusted Investment Banking Operating Income before interest expense on debt, which is included in interest expense on a U.S. GAAP basis.
  5. Presentation of Income from Equity Method Investments. The Adjusted results present Income from Equity Method Investments within Revenue as the Company's Management believes it is a useful presentation.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Adjusted Financial Data

For further information on these adjustments, see page A-2.

(1)

Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments has been reclassified to Revenue in the Adjusted presentation.

(2)

Interest Expense on Debt is excluded from Net Revenues and presented below Operating Income in the Adjusted results and is included in Interest Expense on a U.S. GAAP basis.

(3)

The gain on the sale of a portion of the Company's interests in ABS in the first quarter of 2022 is excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

(4)

Professional fees incurred and costs related to transitioning acquisitions or divestitures are excluded from the Adjusted presentation.

(5)

Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, C-Corporations and a Public Corporation in the U.S. as the ultimate parent. Certain of the subsidiaries, particularly Evercore LP, have noncontrolling interests held by management or former members of management. As a result, not all of the Company’s income is subject to corporate level taxes and certain other state and local taxes are levied. The assumption in the Adjusted earnings presentation is that substantially all of the noncontrolling interest is eliminated through the exchange of Evercore LP units into Class A common stock of the ultimate parent. As a result, the Adjusted earnings presentation assumes that the allocation of earnings to Evercore LP’s noncontrolling interest holders is substantially eliminated and is therefore subject to statutory tax rates of a  C-Corporation under a conventional tax structure in the U.S. and that certain state and local taxes are reduced accordingly.

(6)

Reflects an adjustment to eliminate noncontrolling interest related to substantially all Evercore LP partnership units which are assumed to be converted to Class A common stock in the Adjusted presentation.

(7)

Assumes the exchange into Class A shares of substantially all Evercore LP Units and IPO related restricted stock unit awards in the Adjusted presentation. In the computation of outstanding common stock equivalents for U.S. GAAP net income per share, the Evercore LP Units are anti-dilutive.
