Review of First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Adjusted revenues increased 68% to $78.5 million for the first quarter of 2014 from $46.8 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to an 85% increase in revenues from AUM or AUA to $67.1 million from $36.3 million in the prior year period. Revenue from Prudential’s Wealth Management Solutions (“WMS”) business, acquired by the Company in July 2013, is included for the entire first quarter of 2014.

Total operating expenses in the first quarter of 2014 increased 62% to $74.5 million from $46.0 million in the prior year period. Cost of revenues increased 105% to $34.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 from $16.8 million in the first quarter of 2013 due to the increase in revenue from AUM or AUA and additional cost attributable to WMS revenues, which have a higher cost profile than the Company’s non-WMS business. Compensation and benefits increased 36% to $23.5 million in the first quarter of 2014 from $17.2 million in the prior year period due to higher personnel cost from WMS, as well as higher non-cash compensation expense. General and administration expenses increased 37% to $12.2 million in the first quarter of 2014 from $8.9 million in the prior year period, primarily due to WMS.

Income from operations was $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2013. Net income attributable to Envestnet, Inc. was $3.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the first quarter of 2014 was $11.8 million, compared to $8.2 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Net Income(1) was $6.3 million, compared to $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted Net Income Per Share(1) was $0.17, compared to $0.12 in the first quarter of 2013.

At March 31, 2014, the Company had $52.6 million in cash and cash equivalents with no debt.

(1) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

“Adjusted revenues” exclude the effect of purchase accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue. Under 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 deferred revenue fair value adjustment, interest income, imputed interest on contingent consideration, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, re-audit related expenses, severance, litigation related expense and pre-tax loss attributable to non-controlling interest.

“Adjusted net income” represents net income before deferred revenue fair value adjustment, imputed interest on contingent consideration, non-cash compensation expense, restructuring charges and transaction costs, re-audit related expenses, severance, amortization of acquired intangibles, litigation related expense 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 United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
