JMP Group Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Results

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- JMP Group Inc. (NYSE: JMP), an investment banking and alternative asset management firm, reported financial results today for the quarter and full fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

"JMP Group posted record adjusted operating EPS—which excludes profits on the sale of acquired loans—of $0.24 for the quarter, up more than 70% from the fourth quarter of 2011, thanks to increased public equity underwriting and private placement fee revenues, good overall performance in our hedge funds and credit strategies, and an adjustment to the compensation ratio applied to net investment income for the period," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Joe Jolson. "Despite depressed institutional equity underwriting and trading volumes across Wall Street for much of 2012, JMP delivered its second consecutive year of record earnings, generating $0.68 of adjusted operating EPS, compared to $0.56 for 2011."

Segment Results of Operations

At JMP Securities, adjusted net revenues excluding net investment income grew 56.8% for the fourth quarter and 2.1% for 2012 on a year-over-year basis, driven by a growing share of U.S. equity capital markets fee revenues and higher private placement fee revenues, which were partially offset by a decline in net brokerage commission revenues. JMP Securities' operating margin on adjusted net revenues improved to 9.2% for the year, compared to 4.1% for 2011, as a result of revenue growth combined with continued strict control over operating expenses.

At Harvest Capital Strategies, adjusted net revenues excluding net investment income grew 13.0% for the fourth quarter and fell 3.7% for 2012 on a year-over-year basis, despite a decline in incentive fees generated by the Harvest Small Cap Partners strategy as well as a reduction in other revenues due to the liquidation of a sponsored hedge fund, Expo Health Sciences Master Fund, and the termination of a consulting agreement with New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. in June 2012. The decline in fee revenues was more than offset by a material increase in net investment income driven primarily by an improved return on the capital invested by JMP Group in its hedge funds of 11.9% for 2012, compared to 4.8% for 2011, and a reduced compensation accrual in connection with net investment income.

At the JMP Credit segment, which includes Harvest Capital Credit, adjusted net revenues excluding net gains on the sale or payoff of acquired loans improved by 2.2% for the fourth quarter but declined by 14.4% for 2012 on a year-over-year basis. A decline in CLO management fee revenues resulting from the final liquidation of Rosedale CLO II in July 2012 was partially offset by increasing revenues from Harvest Capital Credit as it deployed its committed capital throughout the year.

Included in the net loss of $1.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was a loss of $2.8 million attributable to non-controlling interests in net realized and unrealized losses at Harvest Growth Capital and Harvest Growth Capital II, venture capital funds managed by Harvest Capital Strategies that are consolidated under GAAP. GAAP accounting requires that JMP Group consolidate both funds due to Harvest Capital Strategies' role as the funds' manager and managing member, despite the company's ownership of just 4.5% of Harvest Growth Capital and 3.3% of Harvest Growth Capital II. The presentation of adjusted net revenues elsewhere in this press release excludes JMP Group's non-controlling interests in these funds; and, accordingly, the aforementioned loss of $2.8 million is not included in adjusted net revenues. Net of its non-controlling interests, JMP Group had a net realized and unrealized loss of $0.2 million on its investments in Harvest Growth Capital and Harvest Growth Capital II for the quarter. For more information on adjusted net revenues, including a reconciliation to net revenues, please see the section below titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Gain on Sale, Payoff and Mark-to-Market of Loans and Loan Loss Provision

Together, JMP Credit Corporation and Harvest Capital Credit generated a net realized and unrealized gain of $4.4 million from the sale, payoff or mark-to-market of loans for the quarter, compared to $2.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year, the net realized and unrealized gain from the sale, payoff or mark to market of loans was $7.2 million, compared to $17.0 million for 2011.

JMP Credit Corporation realized a net gain of $3.9 million for the quarter due to the sale or payoff of 60 of the loans in its portfolio, compared to a net gain of $2.0 million in connection with 21 loans for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year, the net realized gain was $6.6 million as a result of the sale or payoff of 127 loans, compared to a net gain of $17.0 million in connection with 110 loans for 2011. For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, net realized gains of $2.7 million and $4.7 million, respectively, were due to the sale or payoff of loans acquired with JMP Credit in April 2009, compared to net realized gains of $1.8 million and $14.8 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, respectively. At December 31, 2012, seven loans with an aggregate par value of $25.2 million and an associated liquidity discount of $4.3 million remained from the portfolio acquired in April 2009.

At December 31, 2012, discounts and reserves (including liquidity discounts, allowances for loan losses and deferred loan fees) equaled $12.7 million, or 3.1% of gross performing loans outstanding at JMP Credit. With regard to impaired loans, discounts and reserves (including credit discounts, liquidity discounts, and allowances for loan losses) equaled $1.7 million—equivalent to 49.6% of gross impaired loans outstanding or 0.4% of gross loans outstanding—compared to $9.5 million, or 2.2% of gross loans outstanding, at December 31, 2011.

A net loan loss provision of $1.1 million for the quarter was recorded at JMP Credit, which is currently consolidated under GAAP, as a specific reserve in connection with an impaired loan. At December 31, 2012, general loan loss reserves equaled 0.5% of gross performing loans at JMP Credit, in line with 0.5% at December 31, 2011.

Harvest Capital Credit realized a net realized and unrealized gain of $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 and $0.7 million for the full year. Of those amounts, $0.3 million resulted from the payoff of two loans in its portfolio during the fourth quarter. No loans were paid off in 2011. The remaining net unrealized gains of $0.2 million and $0.4 million for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012, respectively, were due to mark-to-market adjustments, as discussed below.

Due to its adoption of investment company accounting in preparation for its pending initial public offering as a business development company, Harvest Capital Credit, which is currently consolidated under GAAP, was required to change certain accounting principles which it had been permitted to employ historically. As of September 30, 2012, Harvest Capital Credit reports all investments, including debt investments, at market value or, in the absence of a readily available market value, at fair value. Consequently, its financial statements for the first three quarters of 2012 have been recast to reflect a retrospective application of investment company accounting, and all loan loss provisions taken for those periods have been reversed. At December 31, 2012, Harvest Capital Credit's debt investments were marked to market, resulting in net unrealized gains of $0.2 million and $0.4 million for the fourth quarter and the full year, respectively.

JMP Group's consolidated financial statements for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 indicate loan loss provisions of $1.1 million and $2.0 million, respectively. However, for the year, there is a reversal of $0.2 million in connection with the recasting of Harvest Capital Credit's results described above. Net of the reversal, the loan loss provision associated only with JMP Credit would have been $2.2 million for the year.

Other Income

Other income was $0.3 million for the quarter, compared to $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year, other income was $3.8 million, compared to $4.3 million for 2011.

Net Interest Income

Interest income was $8.8 million for the quarter, and interest expense was $10.4 million, resulting in net interest expense of $1.6 million, compared to net interest expense of $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding net amortization expense related to liquidity discounts, net interest income was $6.0 million, compared to $4.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the launch of Harvest Capital Credit in September 2011 and the subsequent deployment of a portion of its committed capital. For the year, net interest expense was $7.1 million, compared to net interest expense of $2.4 million for 2011; excluding net interest expense due to net amortization of liquidity discounts, net interest income was $22.1 million for 2012 and $21.1 million for 2011.

Expenses

Compensation and Benefits

Compensation and benefits expense was $10.6 million for the quarter, compared to $22.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the fourth quarter of 2012, non-cash compensation expense attributable to performance-related and other restricted stock units, or RSUs, granted subsequent to JMP Group's May 2007 initial public offering was $1.9 million, compared to $9.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The aforementioned compensation and benefits expense of $10.6 million for the quarter excludes 77%, or $7.0 million, of the total cost of deferred compensation for 2012, which will be recognized for GAAP accounting purposes on a quarterly basis though paid at year-end 2013 and 2014.

For the year, compensation and benefits expense was $66.4 million, compared to $89.0 million for 2011. For 2012, non-cash compensation expense attributable to performance-related and other RSUs granted subsequent to the company's IPO was $2.5 million, compared to $9.5 million for 2011. The aforementioned compensation and benefits expense of $66.4 million for the year excludes 77%, or $7.0 million, of the total cost of deferred compensation for 2012, which will be recognized for GAAP accounting purposes on a quarterly basis though paid at year-end 2013 and 2014.

Excluding the cost of RSU grants but accelerating and recognizing all deferred compensation expense at December 31, 2012, compensation and benefits expense was 46.8% of adjusted net revenues for the quarter, compared to 52.6% for the fourth quarter of 2011, and was 56.6% for the year, compared to 58.1% for 2011. The declines in the compensation ratios for both the fourth quarter of 2012 and the full year were related to better-than-expected net investment income, which affected the company's revenue mix and led management to decide at year-end to adjust the compensation accrual on net investment income for 2012. The decision reduced the company's ratio of compensation and benefits expense to adjusted net revenues by 8.9 percentage points for the quarter and 2.4 percentage points for the year.

Non-Compensation Expense

Non-compensation expense was $7.0 million for the quarter, compared to $6.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. For the year, non-compensation expense was $25.0 million, compared to $26.8 million for 2011. As a percentage of adjusted net revenues, non-compensation expense was 21.0% for the quarter, compared to 25.4% for the fourth quarter of 2011, and was 19.9% for the year, compared to 19.8% for 2011.

Personnel

At December 31, 2012, the company had 224 full-time employees, compared to 217 at the end of the prior quarter and 217 at December 31, 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the GAAP financial results presented in this press release, JMP Group presents the non-GAAP financial measures discussed below. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the company's current financial performance. Additionally, company management believes that this presentation enables meaningful comparison of JMP Group's financial performance in various periods. However, the non-GAAP financial results presented should not be considered a substitute for results that are presented in a manner consistent with GAAP. A limitation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented is that the adjustments concern gains, losses or expenses that JMP Group generally expects to continue to recognize; the adjustment of these items should not be construed as an inference that these gains or expenses are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Therefore, company management believes that both JMP Group's GAAP measures of its financial performance and the respective non-GAAP measures should be considered together. The non-GAAP measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Adjusted Net Revenue

Adjusted net revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure that (i) includes asset management fees, net interest income or expense, and other revenues eliminated upon the consolidation of Harvest Growth Capital, Harvest Growth Capital II and Harvest Capital Credit, (ii) excludes the net amortization of liquidity discounts on loans held and asset-backed securities issued by JMP Credit Corporation, (iii) excludes amortization expense related to an intangible asset, (iv) reverses unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses recorded at Harvest Capital Credit, (v) reverses net unrealized gains and losses on strategic equity investments and warrants and (vi) excludes the non-controlling interest in net unrealized gains and losses on Harvest Growth Capital and Harvest Growth Capital II. In particular, adjusted net revenue adjusts for:

Additionally, management considers it instructive to further adjust the company's adjusted net revenues to exclude the financial impact of gains or losses recognized by JMP Credit Corporation due to the sale or payoff of loans originally included in the portfolio acquired by JMP Group in April 2009.

A reconciliation of JMP Group's net revenues to its adjusted net revenues for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 and for comparable prior periods is set forth below.

Company management has utilized adjusted net revenue, adjusted in the manner described above, as an additional device to aid in understanding and analyzing JMP Group's financial results for the periods presented. Management believes that adjusting net revenue in these ways is useful in that it allows for a better evaluation of the performance of JMP Group's ongoing business and facilitates a meaningful comparison of the company's results in a given period to those in prior and future periods.

Asset Management-Related Fee Revenues

Asset management-related fee revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure that sums asset management fees with certain fee revenues (in particular, asset management fundraising fees generated by JMP Securities, loan fees, and revenues from fee-sharing arrangements with other asset managers) that are reported in JMP Group's financial statements as other income. In addition, asset management-related fee revenues incorporate base management and incentive fees earned by Harvest Capital Strategies as manager of Harvest Growth Capital, Harvest Growth Capital II and Harvest Capital Credit. JMP Group consolidates the two Harvest Growth Capital funds and Harvest Capital Credit in accordance with GAAP accounting standards; however, asset management fees generated by these entities are included in asset management-related fee revenues as though deconsolidated.

Company management has utilized asset management-related fee revenue as a means of assessing the performance of JMP Group's combined asset management activities, including its fundraising and other services for third parties. Management believes that asset management-related fee revenues, as presented above, provide useful information by indicating the relative contributions of base management fees and performance-related incentive fees, thus facilitating a comparison of those fees in a given period to those in prior and future periods. Management also believes that asset management-related fee revenue is a more meaningful measure than standalone asset management fees as reported, because asset management-related fee revenues represent the combined impact of JMP Group's various asset management activities on the company's total net revenues.

Operating Net Income

Operating net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that (i) reverses stock-based compensation expense related to equity awards granted both at the time of JMP Group's May 2007 initial public offering and thereafter, (ii) excludes the net amortization of liquidity discounts on loans held and asset-backed securities issued by JMP Credit Corporation, (iii) excludes amortization expense related to an intangible asset, (iv) excludes one-time costs associated with Harvest Capital Credit's pending initial public offering, (v) reverses unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses recorded at Harvest Capital Credit, (vi) reverses net unrealized gains and losses on strategic equity investments and warrants, and (vii) assumes an effective tax rate of 42%. In particular, operating net income adjusts for:

(1)   Weighted average diluted share count indicated is a non-GAAP measure. Due to the vesting in the first quarter of 2012 of performance-related RSUs resulting from the achievement of adjusted operating EPS objectives for 2011, GAAP requires that not only the related compensation expense but also the increase in diluted shares be reflected as fourth quarter 2011 events, irrespective of the fact that the vesting did not take place until the first quarter of 2012, at which time it increased the weighted average number of basic shares outstanding. On a GAAP basis, the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was 22,796,939, and adjusted operating net income per diluted share using this denominator would have been $0.14. Alternately, management prefers to present a non-GAAP share count for the period, which is in keeping with the calculation of the weighted average number of diluted shares in quarters not impacted by the vesting of performance-related RSUs.

Company management has utilized operating net income on a total and per share basis, adjusted in the manner described above, as an additional device to aid in understanding and analyzing JMP Group's financial results for the periods presented. Management believes that operating net income provides useful information by excluding certain items that may not be representative of the company's core operating results or core business activities. Management also believes that operating net income is a useful measure because it allows for a better evaluation of the performance of JMP Group's ongoing business and facilitates a meaningful comparison of the company's results in a given period to those in prior and future periods.

Adjusted Operating Net Income

Adjusted operating net income excludes from operating net income the financial contribution of gains or losses recognized by JMP Credit Corporation due to the sale or payoff of loans originally included in the portfolio acquired by JMP Group in April 2009. Management believes that this metric can be instructive to investors who wish to assess the company's core earnings over time without regard to a relatively volatile revenue stream. By excluding profits from sales and payoffs of acquired loans, management intends to present the earnings power of the company's core businesses and ongoing operations. Moreover, the company utilized adjusted operating net income as a threshold for the vesting of performance-related RSUs granted as a component of 2011 and 2012 employee bonus compensation.

Reconciliations of JMP Group's operating net income to its adjusted operating net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 and for comparable prior periods are set forth below.

Segment Reporting

In order to demonstrate the contribution to the company's results of each of its primary businesses on a standalone basis, JMP Group presents the operating net income generated by each segment in the tables that follow. Management believes that these presentations enable investors to better understand the separate but interrelated financial operations of the company's various business lines and to more accurately assess the contribution of each to JMP Group's aggregate results.

Total net revenues have been adjusted, in part, as detailed above in the section titled "Adjusted Net Revenue," and the resulting adjusted net revenues (i) include asset management fees, net interest income or expense, and other revenues eliminated upon the consolidation of Harvest Growth Capital, Harvest Growth Capital II and Harvest Capital Credit, (ii) exclude the net amortization of liquidity discounts on loans held and asset-backed securities issued by JMP Credit Corporation, (iii) exclude amortization expense related to an intangible asset, (iv) reverse unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses recorded at Harvest Capital Credit; (v) reverse net unrealized gains and losses on strategic equity investments and warrants and (vi) exclude non-controlling interests in net unrealized gains and losses on Harvest Growth Capital, Harvest Growth Capital II and Harvest Capital Credit. Total non-interest expenses have been adjusted, in part, as detailed above in the section titled "Operating Net Income," and the resulting adjusted non-interest expense reverses stock-based compensation expense related to equity awards granted both at the time of JMP Group's May 2007 initial public offering and thereafter. For the purposes of calculating operating net income, an effective tax rate of 42% is assumed.

Adjusted Tangible Book Value per Share

At December 31, 2012, JMP Group's tangible book value per share was $5.62, compared to $5.33 at September 30, 2012 and $5.74 at December 31, 2011. Adjusting book value to reflect the net liquidity discount on JMP Credit Corporation's loan portfolio and asset-backed securities issued and to accelerate the recognition of deferred compensation expense, JMP Group's adjusted tangible book value per share at December 31, 2012 would have been $5.15, as indicated by the table below.

(1)   Due to the vesting in the first quarter of 2012 of performance-related RSUs resulting from the achievement of adjusted operating EPS objectives for 2011, GAAP required that the related compensation expense be reflected in the fourth quarter of 2011, the period in which the objectives were met and the vesting was triggered. The increased expense lowered pre-tax earnings and created a tax benefit, which added to net income and, consequently, to stockholders' equity. JMP Group opted to reverse the net benefit of the vesting for the purposes of calculating tangible stockholders' equity in order to exclude the financial impact of an event that was not core to the company's operating activities.
 
(2) Return on adjusted tangible equity equals annualized operating net income divided by average adjusted tangible stockholders' equity.
 

Share Repurchase Activity

During the quarter ended December 31, 2012, JMP Group repurchased 155,558 shares of its common stock at an average price of $5.21 per share, or $0.8 million in total. At year-end, approximately 750,000 shares remained eligible for repurchase under the company's existing repurchase authorization.

Cautionary Note Regarding Quarterly Financial Results

Due to the nature of its business, JMP Group's quarterly revenues and net income may fluctuate materially depending on: the size and number of investment banking transactions on which it advises; the timing of the completion of those transactions; the size and number of securities trades which it executes for brokerage customers; the performance of its asset management funds and inflows and outflows of assets under management; gains or losses stemming from sales of or prepayments on, or losses stemming from defaults on, loans underlying the company's collateralized loan obligation or in its small business lending portfolio; and the effect of the overall condition of the securities markets and economy as a whole. Accordingly, revenues and net income in any particular quarter may not be indicative of future results. Furthermore, JMP Group's compensation expense is generally based upon revenues and can fluctuate materially in any quarter, depending upon the amount and sorts of revenue recognized as well as other factors. The amount of compensation and benefits expense recognized in a particular quarter may not be indicative of such expense in any future period. As a result, the company suggests that its annual results may be the most meaningful gauge for investors in evaluating the performance of its business.
