National Financial Partners Corp. (NYSE: NFP), a leading provider of benefits, insurance and wealth management services, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. 

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100920/NY67494LOGO )

NFP announced on April 15, 2013 that it has entered into a definitive agreement with a controlled affiliate of Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, under which such controlled affiliate will acquire NFP.

First Quarter 2013 Results - Consolidated NFP reported first quarter 2013 net income (controlling interest) of $4.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared with net income (controlling interest) of $5.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the prior year period.  Net income (controlling interest) excludes minority interests.

First quarter 2013 cash earnings was $23.6 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared with $24.4 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the first quarter 2012.  First quarter 2013's effective tax rate of 53.8% was primarily driven by the impact of planned management contract buyout expense on estimated pre-tax book income and the consequent higher proportion of non-deductible expenses in the estimated annual pre-tax book income.  Compared to an expected effective tax rate of 42% for 2013, excluding the impacts of management contract buyouts, impairments, disposition activity and changes in unrecognized tax benefits, first quarter 2013's higher effective tax rate negatively impacted cash earnings per diluted share by approximately $0.02 for the quarter.  In addition, deal-related expenses associated with the pending acquisition of NFP negatively impacted cash earnings per diluted share by approximately $0.01 in the first quarter 2013.  In the first quarter 2012, an interim effective tax rate of 24.0% was due to a reduction in unrecognized tax benefits. 

NFP had 45.3 million weighted average fully diluted shares outstanding for the first quarter 2013 compared with 43.5 million shares for the fourth quarter 2012.  The increase in the first quarter 2013 was due to an increase in the shares that may be issued upon conversion of NFP's senior convertible notes, based on the increase in the average share price, from 2.4 million shares in the fourth quarter 2012 to 3.2 million shares as of the end of the first quarter 2013.  In addition, there was a dilutive impact of 1.7 million shares in the first quarter 2013, compared with 0.8 million shares in the fourth quarter 2012, associated with warrants that were sold in connection with the issuance of the senior convertible notes in June 2010.  NFP's share delivery obligation may be offset by the obligation of the counterparties to the convertible note hedge agreements to deliver a similar number of shares.

Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter 2013 was $32.7 million, an increase of 1.8%, compared with $32.1 million in the first quarter 2012.  Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.4% in the first quarter 2013 compared with 12.6% in the prior year period. 

Revenue was $263.5 million in the first quarter 2013, an increase of 3.7%, compared with $254.1 million in the first quarter 2012. Organic revenue increased 4.4% in the first quarter 2013, compared with the prior year period. Organic revenue growth was driven by all three business segments. 

Total operating expenses were $252.4 million in the first quarter 2013, compared with $244.1 million in the prior year period. Increases were driven by acquisitions and the expense for management contract buyouts.  In addition, operating expenses included deal-related expenses associated with the pending acquisition of NFP. 

Cash flow from operations for the first quarter 2013 was $21.2 million compared with cash flow used in operations of $14.6 million in the first quarter 2012, a $35.8 million increase. During the first quarter 2013, the Company made a cash payment in connection with a management contract buyout of $0.9 million that runs through operating cash flow compared to $3.4 million in the first quarter 2012.  In addition, estimated tax payments and fees to principals were $6.5 million and $9.6 million lower, respectively, in the first quarter 2013 compared to the prior year period. 

First Quarter 2013 Results – Segments NFP reports results in three segments that provide unique products and services to corporate and high net worth individual clients: the Corporate Client Group, the Individual Client Group and the Advisor Services Group. 

Corporate Client Group (CCG) CCG is one of the leading corporate benefits advisors in the middle market, offering independent solutions for health and welfare, retirement planning, executive benefits, and property and casualty insurance.  

CCG accounted for 46.6% of NFP's revenue in the first quarter 2013 and 44.1% in the first quarter 2012.  This increase was driven by both acquisitions and organic growth.  CCG revenue was $122.6 million in the first quarter 2013 compared with $112.1 million in the prior year period, an increase of $10.5 million or 9.4%.  CCG organic revenue growth was 2.4%. 

CCG Adjusted EBITDA was $25.0 million in the first quarter 2013 compared with $24.5 million in the prior year period.  Adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.4% in the first quarter 2013 compared with 21.9% in the prior year period.

Individual Client Group (ICG) ICG is a leader in the delivery of independent life insurance and wealth transfer solutions for high net worth individuals.  ICG's advisors provide wealth accumulation, preservation and transfer solutions, including estate and business planning and financial advisory services. 

ICG accounted for 28.9% of NFP's revenue in the first quarter 2013 and 31.7% in the first quarter 2012.   ICG revenue was $76.2 million in the first quarter 2013 compared with $80.6 million in the prior year period.  This decrease of $4.4 million, or 5.5%, was primarily driven by dispositions.  ICG organic revenue increased 6.6%. 

ICG Adjusted EBITDA was $3.7 million in the first quarter 2013 compared with $4.7 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 4.9% in the first quarter 2013 compared with 5.8% in the prior year period. 

Advisor Services Group (ASG) ASG serves independent financial advisors whose clients are high net worth individuals and companies by offering an open choice of broker-dealer and asset management products and services. 

ASG accounted for 24.5% of NFP's revenue in the first quarter 2013 and 24.2% for the first quarter 2012.  ASG revenue was $64.7 million in the first quarter 2013 compared with $61.4 million in the prior year period, an increase of $3.2 million.  Revenue and organic revenue increased 5.2%.  

ASG Adjusted EBITDA was $4.0 million in the first quarter 2013 compared with $2.9 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 6.1% in the first quarter 2013 and 4.7% in the prior year period.

As of March 31, 2013, assets under management at NFP's corporate registered investment advisor were $11.4 billion, compared with $10.1 billion as of March 31, 2012. 

Acquisition Activity Effective March 8, 2013, Brady Financial Group (BFG) became a part of NFP Canada.  In this transaction, NFP purchased a 70% membership interest in BFG.  NFP recognizes the remaining 30% membership interest as minority interest.  NFP has the right to purchase the remaining 30% membership interest in the future, depending on certain conditions.  Founded in 1998, BFG has annualized revenue of approximately $3 million and is a provider of corporate employee benefits, retirement and insurance to the greater Toronto market.

Effective April 1, 2013, NFP acquired the management company associated with Ikon Insurance.  Ikon Insurance, part of NFP since 2003 and based in San Juan, Puerto Rico with annualized revenue of approximately $19 million, is a comprehensive employee benefits solution provider and financial services firm working with closely held businesses, institutional and individual clients to provide group health benefits, as well as voluntary and flexible benefits.

Effective April 3, 2013, NFP acquired Thoits Insurance Services (Thoits Insurance), a leading provider of property & casualty (P&C) insurance in California.  Thoits Insurance will be integrated into NFP Property & Casualty Insurance Services (NFP P&C) to establish a California regional office, responsible for the management and growth of P&C in this area.  Thoits Insurance, with annualized revenue of approximately $10 million, was founded in 1891.

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 income; the after-tax impact of management contract buyouts; net income (non-controlling interests) 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, or reversal of previously-recognized expenses related to, 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 income; the expense related to management contract buyouts and minority interest (income) loss.  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, 2013, 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 to compare revenue across 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.  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 in making the organic growth comparison.
