Commenting on today's announcements, Jessica M. Bibliowicz, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "The first quarter 2012 included solid results and positive contributions from all of our business segments.  For the quarter, we reported revenue growth of 8.9%, organic revenue growth of 5.9%, growth in Adjusted EBITDA and margin expansion."

Ms. Bibliowicz continued, "We plan to continue executing on our balanced capital allocation strategy in 2012 which includes acquisitions, a share repurchase program beginning in May and investments in our Company.  We believe these actions will continue to enhance shareholder value and NFP's client value proposition, as well as our leadership position in our core markets of benefits, insurance and wealth management."

First Quarter 2012 Results - Consolidated NFP reported first quarter 2012 net income of $5.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared with net income of $6.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the prior year period. 

First quarter 2012 cash earnings was $24.4 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared with $18.5 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the first quarter 2011.  Net income and cash earnings include the impact of an interim effective tax rate of 24.0% due to a reduction in unrecognized tax benefits.  Cash earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure and a reconciliation of net income to this non-GAAP financial measure is provided in the attached tables. 

NFP had 42.6 million weighted average fully diluted shares outstanding for the first quarter of 2012 compared to 42.4 million shares for the fourth quarter 2011.  The increase in the first quarter of 2012 includes 1.5 million shares that may be issued upon conversion of NFP's senior convertible notes.  NFP's share delivery obligation of the 1.5 million shares may be offset by the obligation of the counterparties to the convertible note hedge agreements to deliver a similar number of shares. This increase was partially offset by a reduction in weighted average shares of 1.0 million from shares repurchased by NFP during the fourth quarter 2011 and the first quarter 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter 2012 was $32.1 million, an increase of 33.7% compared with $24.0 million in the first quarter 2011.  Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.6% in the first quarter 2012 grew compared with an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 10.3% in the prior year period.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and a reconciliation of net income to this non-GAAP financial measure is provided in the attached tables.

Revenue was $254.1 million in the first quarter 2012, an increase of $20.9 million, or 8.9%, compared with $233.3 million in the first quarter 2011. Organic revenue grew 5.9% in the first quarter 2012, compared with the prior year period. The increases were driven by all three of the Company's business segments. 

Total operating expenses were $244.1 million, compared with $220.3 million in the prior year period, which were driven by the addition of operating expenses of acquired companies, expenses and impairments related to previously announced management contract buyouts and the adjustment in expected contingent consideration payments from prior acquisitions.

Cash used in operations for the first quarter 2012 was $14.6 million compared with cash used in operations of $5.9 million in the first quarter 2011. The first quarter 2012 included payments of $7.3 for the Principal Incentive Plan (PIP).  There were no comparable PIP payments in the first quarter 2011.  As of March 31, 2012, there was $15.0 million outstanding on the Company's revolving credit facility.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures The Company analyzes its performance using historical and forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures called cash earnings, cash earnings per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and percentages or calculations using these measures.  The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional meaningful methods of evaluating certain aspects of the Company's operating performance from period to period on a basis that may not be otherwise apparent under GAAP.  Cash earnings is defined as net income excluding amortization of intangibles, depreciation, the after-tax impact of the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, the after-tax impact of non-cash interest, the after-tax impact of change in estimated acquisition earn-out payables recorded in accordance with purchase accounting that have been subsequently adjusted and recorded in the consolidated statements of operations, the after-tax impact of management contract buyouts and the after-tax impact of certain non-recurring items.  Cash earnings per diluted share is calculated by dividing cash earnings by the number of weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the period indicated.  Cash earnings and cash earnings per diluted share should not be viewed as substitutes for net income and net income per diluted share, respectively.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding income tax expense, interest income, interest expense, gain on early extinguishment of debt, other, net, amortization of intangibles, depreciation, impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, (gain) loss on sale of businesses, net, the accelerated vesting of certain RSUs, any change in estimated acquisition earn-out payables recorded in accordance with purchase accounting that have been subsequently adjusted and recorded in the consolidated statements of operations and the expense related to management contract buyouts.  Adjusted EBITDA should not be viewed as a substitute for net income.  A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their GAAP counterparts is provided in the attached tables and the Company's quarterly financial supplement for the period ended March 31, 2012, which is available on the Investor Relations section of the Company's Web site at www.nfp.com.

Organic Revenue Growth The Company uses organic revenue growth as a comparable revenue measurement for future periods.  The Company excludes revenue from new acquisitions, sub-acquisitions, and the revenue derived from businesses fully disposed of for the first twelve months after the respective transaction.  With respect to situations where a significant portion of a business' assets have been disposed, the Company reduces the prior year's comparable revenue proportionally to the percentage of assets that have been disposed to facilitate an equitable organic growth comparison.
