VICTORY CAPITAL REPORTS RECORD NET INCOME AND EARNINGS PER SHARE IN FIRST QUARTER

First Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Total Assets Under Management (AUM) of $154.3 billion

  • Long-term gross flows of $6.7 billion; long-term net outflows of $983 million

  • GAAP operating margin of 42.1%

  • GAAP net income of $0.88 per diluted share

  • Adjusted net income with tax benefit of $1.13 per diluted share1

  • Board authorizes 33% increase in regular quarterly cash dividend

Victory Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: VCTR) ("Victory Capital" or "the Company") today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

"I am pleased to report that Victory Capital is off to a very strong start in 2021," said David Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Investment performance generated on behalf of clients was excellent across our Investment Franchises and Solutions platform in the first quarter. At the same time, long-term gross sales increased 18% from the fourth quarter. Our long-term net flows were positive in March and the steady improvement that began in the middle of last year has continued in the second quarter.

"First quarter operating performance was also exceptional. We achieved robust GAAP and adjusted profit margins that resulted in the highest net income and earnings per share for any three-month period in our Company’s history.

"We continue to generate substantial cash flow, and this allowed us to reduce our leverage ratio to 1.6x. In February, we repriced our term loan for the second time since origination, lowering the interest rate by another 25 basis points. Since the beginning of last year, we have successfully reduced the interest rate spread on our debt by 100 basis points.

"In addition to lowering our cost of capital, our strong financial condition was instrumental in our Board’s decision to authorize another increase in our quarterly cash dividend. This represents the fourth consecutive increase in cash dividends declared since August. With this latest increase, the $0.12 cash dividend declared today is 140% greater than the dividend announced in conjunction with last year’s first-quarter results. We have also continued to repurchase shares as an added means of returning a portion of excess cash flow to shareholders.

"The acquisition of our newest Investment Franchise, THB Asset Management, closed and it has been fully integrated onto our platform. Our distribution teams have begun marketing THB’s strategies, all of which have exceptional investment performance track records.

"Investments in our business during the first quarter included adding executive talent within our Direct Investor Business, completing the build out of an experienced sales team focusing on RIAs, multi-family offices, and bank trust departments, and continuing to invest in data and analytics. All of these initiatives are designed to enhance our growth over the remainder of this year and beyond. As always, serving the needs of our clients remains our top priority."

AUM, Flows and Investment Performance

Victory Capital’s AUM increased by $7.1 billion to $154.3 billion at March 31, 2021, compared with $147.2 billion at December 31, 2020. The increase was due to positive market action of $7.7 billion and $547 million of acquired assets, partially offset by net outflows of $1.2 billion. Total gross flows for the first quarter were $6.8 billion, including long-term gross flows of $6.7 billion.

As of March 31, 2021, Victory Capital offered 124 investment strategies through its 10 autonomous Investment Franchises and Solutions Platform. The table below presents outperformance against benchmarks by AUM as of March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Compared with Fourth Quarter 2020

Revenue increased 6% to $212.9 million, in the first quarter, compared with $200.4 million in the fourth quarter, due to higher average AUM and a slight increase in revenue realization quarter over quarter partially offset by two fewer days in the quarter. GAAP operating margin expanded 330 basis points in the first quarter to 42.1%, up from 38.8% in the fourth quarter, due to relatively flat operating expenses and an increase in revenue as a result of higher average AUM. First quarter GAAP net income rose 19% to $65.2 million, up from $54.9 million in the prior quarter. On a per-share basis, GAAP net income advanced 17% to $0.88 per diluted share in the first quarter, versus $0.75 per diluted share in the fourth quarter.

Adjusted net income with tax benefit increased 6% to $83.6 million in the first quarter, up from $78.6 million in the fourth quarter. On a per-share basis, adjusted net income with tax benefit increased 6% to $1.13 per diluted share in the first quarter, from $1.07 per diluted share in the prior quarter. Adjusted EBITDA increased 3% to $106.8 million in the first quarter, versus $103.8 million in the fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin contracted 160 basis points in the first quarter of 2021 to 50.2% compared with 51.8% in the prior quarter primarily due to higher seasonal payroll taxes and benefits.

First Quarter 2021 Compared with First Quarter 2020

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021, rose 4% to $212.9 million, compared with $204.4 million in the same quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher average AUM.

GAAP operating margin was 42.1% in the first quarter, a 220 basis point decrease from the 44.3% recorded in the same quarter of 2020. Operating expenses increased 8% to $123.2 million, compared with $113.8 million in last year’s first quarter. The increase was primarily related to a non-cash, $8.0 million difference in amounts recorded to the change in the fair value of contingent acquisition payments. GAAP net income rose 14% to $65.2 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, in the first quarter compared with $57.2 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, in the same quarter of 2020.

Adjusted net income with tax benefit advanced 22% to $83.6 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, in the first quarter, compared with $68.5 million, or $0.92 per diluted share in the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA rose 17% to $106.8 million, compared with $91.5 million in last year’s same quarter. Year-over-year, adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 540 basis points to 50.2% in the first quarter of 2021, compared with 44.8% in the same quarter last year.

Balance Sheet / Capital Management

During the first quarter, the Company reduced outstanding debt by an additional $50.0 million. Subsequent to March 31, 2021, the Company reduced outstanding debt by $27.0 million, for a total of $388.8 million, since July 1, 2019.

On February 18, 2021, the Company entered into the Second Amendment (the "Second Amendment") to the 2019 Credit Agreement, as amended, with the other loan parties thereto, Barclays Bank PLC, as administrative agent, and the Royal Bank of Canada as fronting bank. The Company refinanced the 2019 Term Loans for a reduced applicable margin on LIBOR of 25 basis points. The applicable margin on LIBOR under the repriced term loans is 2.25%, compared to 2.50% under the First Amendment.

Today, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share, an increase of 33% over the fourth quarter 2020. The dividend is payable on June 25, 2021, to shareholders of record on June 10, 2021.

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Victory Capital uses non-GAAP financial measures referred to as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to measure the operating profitability of the Company. These measures eliminate the impact of one-time acquisition, restructuring and integration costs and demonstrate the ongoing operating earnings metrics of the Company. The Company has included these non-GAAP measures to provide investors with the same financial metrics used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjustments made to GAAP Net Income to calculate Adjusted EBITDA, as applicable, are:

  • Adding back income tax expense;

  • Adding back interest paid on debt and other financing costs, net of interest income;

  • Adding back depreciation on property and equipment;

  • Adding back other business taxes;

  • Adding back amortization expense on acquisition-related intangible assets;

  • Adding back stock-based compensation expense associated with equity awards issued from pools created in connection with the management-led buyout and various acquisitions and as a result of equity grants related to the IPO;

  • Adding back direct incremental costs of acquisitions, including restructuring costs;

  • Adding back debt issuance cost expense;

  • Adjusting for earnings/losses on equity method investments.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjustments made to GAAP Net Income to calculate Adjusted Net Income, as applicable, are:

  • Adding back other business taxes;

  • Adding back amortization expense on acquisition-related intangible assets;

  • Adding back stock-based compensation expense associated with equity awards issued from pools created in connection with the management-led buyout and various acquisitions and as a result of any equity grants related to the IPO;

  • Adding back direct incremental costs of acquisitions, including restructuring costs;

  • Adding back debt issuance cost expense;

  • Subtracting an estimate of income tax expense applied to the sum of the adjustments above.

Tax Benefit of Goodwill and Acquired Intangible Assets

Due to Victory Capital’s acquisitive nature, tax deductions allowed on acquired intangible assets and goodwill provide it with additional significant supplemental economic benefit. The tax benefit of goodwill and intangible assets represent the tax benefits associated with deductions allowed for intangible assets and goodwill generated from prior acquisitions in which the Company received a step-up in basis for tax purposes. Acquired intangible assets and goodwill may be amortized for tax purposes, generally over a 15-year period. The tax benefit from amortization on these assets is included to show the full economic benefit of deductions for all acquired intangible assets with a step-up in tax basis.
