The Company's revenues are derived from Base Management Fees, calculated as a percentage of Assets Under Management ("AUM"), Performance Fees, which are earned when the Company exceeds pre-specified rates of return, and Other Income. 

During the quarter, AUM increased by $205 million to $8.7 billion as at December 31, 2016, from $8.5 billion as at September 30, 2016, due to positive net investment performance of $210 million, partially offset by net withdrawals of $5 million.  Net withdrawals of $7 million from high net worth clients were partially offset by net additions of $2 million from institutional clients.  Year-over-year AUM increased by $432 million due to positive net investment performance of $508 million, partially offset by net withdrawals of $76 million.  Net withdrawals of $100 million from high net worth clients were partially offset by net additions of $24 million from institutional clients.

Base Management Fees for the three months ended December 31, 2016, decreased year-over-year to $26.6 million from $26.8 million as the increase in Average AUM for the quarter to $8.6 billion from $8.4 billion for the same quarter last year was offset by a decrease in the average Base Management Fee Percentage to 1.22% from 1.27% for the same period last year. 

Performance Fees for the three months ended December 31, 2016, were $37.4 million, compared to $31.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. 

Total expenses increased by $0.2 million from the year-ago quarter primarily due to an increase in accrued cash bonuses of $3.1 million, an increase in professional fees related to the Founders' arbitration to $1.9 million from $0.4 million, and an increase in other consulting fees.  These increases were partially offset by lower RSU amortization and the absence of a $3.6 million charge relating to a change in the tax treatment of certain transactions in two pooled funds.

Net income was $24.0 million and represented earnings per share, basic and diluted, of $0.80 and $0.78, respectively for the three months ended December 31, 2016. Net income was $18.8 million and represented earnings per share, basic and diluted, of $0.63 and $0.61, respectively, for the three months ended December 31, 2015.

Base EBITDA eliminates the effect of Performance Fees, Performance Fee related expenses, post-retirement obligations, stock option expense and amortization of RSU awards, and deducts the dollar value of the base bonus RSUs to be awarded in respect of the current period and special RSUs awarded in the period.  Base EBITDA was $10.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared with $11.0 million in the year ago quarter due primarily to lower Base Management Fees and other income as an increase in base bonus expense was offset by a decrease in other operating expenses.

"While the new U.S. administration and the upcoming elections across Europe will introduce uncertainty, we will stay true to our investment process and finding value that lies beneath the veneer of the market indices – companies that are attractively priced within otherwise expensive markets in the later stages of the economic cycle," commented Thomas MacMillan, President & Chief Executive Officer. "We believe our team's experience, emphasis on capital preservation and company-specific active portfolio construction give us and our clients an advantage in this environment."
