  • Strong investment performance across all time periods, with 75%, 77% and 87% of assets under management (“AUM”) outperforming benchmarks on a 1, 3 and 5 year basis, respectively, as at 30 September 2017
  • Net inflows of US$0.7 billion, with positive flows across Equities, Alternatives and Fixed Income
  • Expansion of long-standing strategic partnership with BNP Paribas into the US, supporting Janus Henderson Group’s global operating model
  • Merger related annual cost synergy run rate increased to at least US$125 million, up from US$110 million
  • AUM increased to US$360.5 billion, up 5% from the second quarter 2017

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Janus Henderson Group plc (NYSE:JHG, ASX:JHG, “JHG” or “the Group”) published its third quarter results for the three month period ended 30 September 2017.

Third quarter 2017 net income attributable to JHG of US$99.5 million increased 139% compared to US$41.7 million in the second quarter 2017 (third quarter 2016: US$53.4 million). Net income attributable to JHG on an adjusted basis, adjusted for acquisition and transaction related costs, of US$114.2 million decreased 18% compared with US$139.8 million in the second quarter 2017 (third quarter 2016: US$108.4 million) on a pro forma adjusted basis.

Third quarter 2017 diluted earnings per share of US$0.49 increased 75% compared to US$0.28 in the second quarter 2017 (third quarter 2016: US$0.46). Diluted earnings per share on an adjusted basis of US$0.56 decreased 18% compared to US$0.68 in the second quarter 2017 (third quarter 2016: US$0.52) on a pro forma adjusted basis.

Integration efforts since the closing of the merger on 30 May 2017 are progressing ahead of expectations. As at 30 September 2017, the combined Group had completed US$72 million of annualised run rate pre-tax net cost synergies, which comprised savings largely from headcount reduction. The Group now expects it will be able to realise at least US$90 million of annualised run rate pre-tax net cost synergies by the end of the first 12 months post completion, up from previous guidance of US$85 million. The expansion of the long-standing strategic partnership with BNP Paribas into the US, which was announced today, coupled with the ongoing integration work across the firm, has enabled the Group to increase expectations for recurring annual run rate pre-tax net cost synergies to at least US$125 million within three years post completion. This is increased from previous guidance of at least US$110 million.

Dick Weil and Andrew Formica, co-Chief Executive Officers of Janus Henderson Group plc, said:

“The delivery of consistently strong investment performance is a testament to the quality of our investment teams and underpins the improved momentum we have seen in net sales in the third quarter. Importantly, flows were driven by demand for a wide range of strategies across Janus Henderson’s Equity, Fixed Income and Alternative capabilities. We are encouraged by the levels of engagement, support and relationships developing with clients, globally.

“Integration across Janus Henderson continues to progress at pace, with our focus concentrated on delivering first-class investment performance and service to our clients. The expansion of our long-standing strategic partnership with BNP Paribas into the US will provide the firm with a consistent global platform to support growth. Our confidence in our ability to deliver cost synergies has enabled us to increase our target to at least US$125 million on an annual run rate basis. Only five months have passed since the formation of Janus Henderson, yet pleasingly we are seeing green shoots in the cross-revenue opportunities, brought about by our global distribution footprint, expanded product set and collaborative culture.”

The Group presents its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP” or “GAAP”) which includes the results of Janus Capital Group from the merger closing date. However, in the opinion of Management, the profitability of the Group and its ongoing operations is best evaluated using additional non-GAAP financial measures on a pro forma adjusted basis.

Management fees on a pro forma basis grew 5%, driven primarily by growth in average AUM. Third quarter 2017 adjusted operating income of US$168.4 million decreased from US$199.5 million in the second quarter 2017, driven by lower performance fees.

1 Distribution expenses are paid to financial intermediaries for the distribution of JHG’s investment products. JHG management believes that the deduction of third-party distribution, service and advisory expenses from revenues in the computation of net revenue reflects the nature of these expenses as revenue-sharing activities, as these costs are passed through to external parties who perform functions on behalf of, and distribute, the Group’s managed AUM.
2 Adjustments primarily represent deal and integration costs in relation to the merger. These costs primarily represent severance costs, legal costs and consulting fees. JHG management believes these costs do not represent the ongoing operations of the Group.
3 Investment management contracts have been identified as a separately identifiable intangible asset arising on the acquisition of subsidiaries and businesses. Such contracts are recognised at the net present value of the expected future cash flows arising from the contracts at the date of acquisition. For segregated mandate contracts, the intangible asset is amortised on a straight-line basis over the expected life of the contracts. JHG management believes these non-cash and acquisition related costs do not represent the ongoing operations of the Group.
4 Adjustment primarily relates to the gain recognised on disposal of the alternative UK small cap team (‘Volantis team’) on 1 April 2017. JHG management believes this gain does not represent the ongoing operations of the Group.
5 Adjustments primarily represent fair value movements on options issued to Dai-ichi and deferred consideration costs associated with acquisitions prior to the Merger. JHG Management believes these costs do not represent the ongoing operations of the Group.
6 The tax impact of the adjustments are calculated based on the US or foreign statutory tax rate as they relate to each adjustment. Certain adjustments are either not taxable or not tax deductible.

Many of these factors are beyond the control of the company and its management. Any forward-looking statements contained in this document are as at the date on which such statements were made. The company assumes no duty to update them, even if experience, unexpected events, or future changes make it clear that any projected results expressed or implied therein will not be realised.
