Highlight of Business Operations:

The $45.8 million decrease in liquid assets in fiscal 2012 primarily reflects net cash provided by operating activities of $178.8 million, net inflows into consolidated funds from non-controlling interest holders of $42.0 million, proceeds from the issuance of Non-Voting Common Stock of $55.7 million, $8.6 million of excess tax benefits associated with stock option exercises and $22.1 million reflecting the impact of our consolidated CLO entity’s operating, investing and financing activities, offset by net cash used for the purchase of available-for-sale securities and investments in equity method investees of $127.4 million, the repurchase of $106.5 million of Non-Voting Common Stock, the payment of $87.8 million of dividends to shareholders, $12.3 million in contingent payments made to the sellers of the former Tax-Advantaged Bond Strategies (“TABS”) business of M.D. Sass Investors Services and the payment of $19.9 million to acquire additional interests in our majority owned subsidiaries. Net cash used for the purchase of available-for-sale securities and investments in equity method investees of $127.4 million primarily reflects our acquisition of a 49 percent interest in Hexavest in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in investment advisory fees and other receivables can be attributed to the increase in our revenue run rate at the end of fiscal 2012 compared to the end of fiscal 2011.

The $204.2 million increase in liquid assets in fiscal 2011 can be attributed to an increase in cash and cash equivalent balances of $203.0 million and an increase in investment advisory fees and other receivables of $1.1 million. The increase in cash and cash equivalent balances in fiscal 2011 primarily reflects net cash provided by operating activities of $172.3 million, net proceeds from the sale of available-for-sale securities of $156.9 million, net inflows into consolidated funds from non-controlling interest holders of $118.5 million and proceeds from the issuance of Non-Voting Common Stock of $60.9 million offset by the repurchase of $198.6 million of Non-Voting Common Stock, the payment of $85.2 million of dividends to shareholders, $11.6 million in contingent payments made to the sellers of TABS business and the payment of $6.6 million to purchase additional interests in Parametric and Parametric Risk Advisors in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The increase in investment advisory fees and other receivables can be attributed to the increase in our revenue run rate at the end of fiscal 2011 compared to the end of fiscal 2010.

Cash provided by investing activities totaled $133.5 million in fiscal 2011 compared to cash used for investing activities of $14.0 million in fiscal 2010. The increase in cash provided by investing activities year over year can be primarily attributed to an increase in net proceeds received in conjunction with the net purchases and sales of available-for-sale investments in fiscal 2011. In fiscal 2010, the Company made a contingent payment of $8.8 million, to the sellers of TABS under the terms of the 2009 acquisition agreement.

Redeemable non-controlling interests as of October 31, 2012 consist of third-party investors’ ownership in consolidated investment funds of $20.1 million, non-controlling interests in Parametric, Parametric Risk Advisors and Atlanta Capital redeemable at other than fair value of $33.7 million, $8.7 million and $32.1 million, respectively, and redeemable interests in profit interests granted under subsidiary-specific long-term incentive plans of Parametric and Atlanta Capital of $2.0 million and $2.2 million, respectively. Redeemable non-controlling interests as of October 31, 2011 consist of third-party investors’ ownership in consolidated investment funds of $25.6 million, non-controlling interests in Parametric, Parametric Risk Advisors and Atlanta Capital redeemable at other than fair value of $42.4 million, $10.3 million and $21.4 million, respectively, and redeemable interests in profit interests of Parametric and Atlanta Capital of $0.6 million and $0.5 million, respectively.

In conjunction with its acquisition of the TABS business in December 2008, the Company is obligated to make four further annual contingent payments based on prescribed multiples of TABS’s revenue for the twelve months ending December 31, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016. There is no defined floor or ceiling on any payment, resulting in significant uncertainty as to the amount of any payment in the future. Accordingly, future payments to be made have been excluded from the above table until such time as the uncertainty has been resolved. The Company made a contingent payment of $12.3 million with respect to the twelve months ended December 31, 2011.
