  • Strong investment performance, with 76% and 77% of assets under management (‘AUM’) outperforming relevant benchmarks on a 3 and 5 year basis, respectively, as at 31 December 2019
  • Fourth quarter 2019 operating income of US$154.3 million and adjusted operating income of US$171.0 million
  • AUM of US$374.8 billion, up 5% compared to the prior quarter, as a result of strong markets and favourable FX partially offset by net outflows
  • Completed US$13 million of share buybacks during the fourth quarter concluding the US$200 million share buyback programme
  • Board declared quarterly dividend of US$0.36 per share and approved additional authorisation of US$200 million of buybacks through April 2021

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Janus Henderson Group plc (JHG) published its fourth quarter and full year 2019 results for the period ended 31 December 2019.

Fourth quarter 2019 operating income was US$154.3 million compared to US$143.6 million in the third quarter 2019 and US$150.0 million in the fourth quarter 2018. Adjusted operating income, adjusted for one-time, acquisition and transaction related costs, of US$171.0 million increased 7% compared to US$160.2 million in the third quarter 2019 and increased 3% compared to US$145.3 million in the fourth quarter 2018.

Fourth quarter 2019 diluted earnings per share was US$0.59 compared to US$0.58 in the third quarter 2019 and US$0.54 in the fourth quarter 2018. Adjusted diluted earnings per share of US$0.65 increased 2% compared to US$0.64 in the third quarter 2019 and increased 10% versus US$0.59 in the fourth quarter 2018.

Dick Weil, Chief Executive Officer of Janus Henderson Group plc (JHG), stated:

“2019 for Janus Henderson (JHG) was a year marked by large outflows but also excellent investment performance, growing momentum in our retail businesses around the world and important progress towards our strategic objectives. Our business is generating good cash flow which was returned to shareholders through dividends and a US$200 million share buyback. Strong markets and our investment performance have more than offset outflows resulting in AUM being 14% higher than a year ago, which creates a good starting point for 2020.

“I am optimistic about the outlook for the firm. With the talent and leadership that we have added, and the strength of the existing team, I believe the firm is well positioned. I remain confident that our excellent investment performance, alongside our clear strategy and strong financial position, will drive positive outcomes for clients, shareholders and employees.”

SUMMARY OF FINANCIAL RESULTS (unaudited) (in US$ millions, except per share data or as noted)

The Group presents its financial results in US$ and in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (‘US GAAP’ or ‘GAAP’). However, JHG management evaluates the profitability of the Group and its ongoing operations using additional non GAAP financial measures. Management uses these performance measures to evaluate the business, and adjusted values are consistent with internal management reporting.

Fourth quarter 2019 adjusted revenue of US$463.1 million increased from the third quarter 2019 result of US$433.2 million due to higher average AUM and a higher net management fee margin, and higher performance fees. Fourth quarter 2019 adjusted operating income of US$171.0 million improved from US$160.2 million in the third quarter 2019, primarily driven by positive market and currency movements and higher performance fees.

DIVIDEND AND SHARE BUYBACK

On 3 February 2020, the Board declared a fourth quarter dividend in respect of the three months ended 31 December 2019 of US$0.36 per share. Shareholders on the register on the record date of 18 February 2020 will be paid the dividend on 5 March 2020. Janus Henderson (JHG) does not offer a dividend reinvestment plan.

As part of the US$200 million on-market buyback programme approved by the Board in February 2019, JHG purchased approximately 0.5 million of its ordinary shares on the NYSE and its CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) on the ASX in the fourth quarter, for a total outlay of US$13 million.

Additionally, on 3 February 2020, and subject to formally appointing a corporate broker, the Board approved JHG commencing a new on-market buyback programme in 2020, on a date to be determined and announced by JHG. The Group intends to spend up to US$200 million to buy its ordinary shares on the NYSE and its CDIs on the ASX over 12 months. Further information regarding the proposed on-market buyback programme will be announced immediately prior to its finalisation and formal launch.

During the first quarter 2020, the firm will purchase shares on market for the annual share grants associated with 2019 variable compensation, which is not connected with the above Board approval. As a firm policy, Janus Henderson (JHG) does not issue new shares to employees as part of its annual compensation practices.

Outperformance is measured based on composite performance gross of fees vs primary benchmark, except where a strategy has no benchmark index or corresponding composite in which case the most relevant metric is used: (1) composite gross of fees vs zero for absolute return strategies, (2) fund net of fees vs primary index or (3) fund net of fees vs Morningstar peer group average or median. Non-discretionary and separately managed account assets are included with a corresponding composite where applicable.

Cash management vehicles, ETFs, Managed CDOs, Private Equity funds and custom non-discretionary accounts with no corresponding composite are excluded from the analysis. Excluded assets represent 5% of AUM as at 31 December 2019. Capabilities defined by Janus Henderson (JHG).

Includes Janus Investment Fund, Janus Aspen Series and Clayton Street Trust (US Trusts), Janus Henderson Capital Funds (Dublin based), Dublin and UK OEIC and Investment Trusts, Luxembourg SICAVs and Australian Managed Investment Schemes. The top two Morningstar quartiles represent funds in the top half of their category based on total return. On an asset-weighted basis, 82%, 80%, 74%, 82% and 82% of total mutual fund AUM were in the top 2 Morningstar quartiles for the 10-year periods ended 31 Dec 2018, 31 Mar 2019, 30 Jun 2019, 30 Sep 2019 and 31 Dec 2019, respectively. For the 1-, 3-, 5- and 10-year periods ending 31 Dec 2019, 64%, 56%, 59% and 62% of the 201, 195, 183 and 146 total mutual funds, respectively, were in the top 2 Morningstar quartiles.

Analysis based on ‘primary’ share class (Class I Shares, Institutional Shares or share class with longest history for US Trusts; Class A Shares or share class with longest history for Dublin based; primary share class as defined by Morningstar for other funds). Performance may vary by share class. Rankings may be based, in part, on the performance of a predecessor fund or share class and are calculated by Morningstar using a methodology that differs from that used by Janus Henderson (JHG). Methodology differences may have a material effect on the return and therefore the ranking. When an expense waiver is in effect, it may have a material effect on the total return, and therefore the ranking for the period.

ETFs and funds not ranked by Morningstar are excluded from the analysis. Capabilities defined by JHG. © 2019 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

1

JHG contracts with third-party intermediaries to distribute and service certain of its investment products. Fees for distribution and servicing related activities are either provided for separately in an investment product’s prospectus or are part of the management fee. Under both arrangements, the fees are collected by JHG and passed-through to third-party intermediaries who are responsible for performing the applicable services. The majority of distribution and servicing fees collected by JHG are passed through to third-party intermediaries. JHG management believes that the deduction of distribution and service fees from revenue in the computation of adjusted revenue reflects the pass-through nature of these revenues. In certain arrangements, JHG performs the distribution and servicing activities and retains the applicable fees. Revenues for distribution and servicing activities performed by JHG are not deducted from GAAP revenue.

2

Adjustments primarily represent integration costs in relation to the Merger, including 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. The year ended 31 December 2019 also included a US$18 million impairment of certain mutual fund contracts. JHG management believes these non-cash and acquisition-related costs do not represent the ongoing operations of the Group.

4

2019 adjustments primarily represent contingent consideration adjustments associated with acquisitions prior to the Merger and increased debt expense as a consequence of the fair value uplift on debt due to acquisition accounting. JHG management believes these costs do not represent the ongoing operations of the Group.

5

The tax impact of the adjustments is 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.
