Net income of $12.1 million or diluted EPS $0.09

Record $13.5 billion in net inflows for the quarter with AUM reaching record $55.8 billion

Net inflow market share of 23.8% for the quarter

Declares $0.08 quarterly dividend

NEW YORK, May 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") and exchange-traded product ("ETP") sponsor and asset manager today reported net income of $12.1 million for the first quarter of 2015 or $0.09 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $30.2 million in the first quarter of 2014 (which included a non-recurring tax benefit of $13.7 million) and $9.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Included in the quarter was a loss of $1.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted EPS, associated with the Company`s European listed ETP business, which was acquired in April 2014.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg said, "We reported a record $13.5 billion in net inflows in the first quarter in the U.S., making WisdomTree one of the fastest-growing companies within the ETF and broader asset management industry in 2015 to date. WisdomTree`s industry-leading growth underscores our ability to identify and disseminate useful and differentiated investment solutions to an ever-growing ETF market. We also recorded record revenues and pre-tax earnings in the quarter."

"Now the sixth largest ETP sponsor in the world with $61.2 billion in AUM globally, we are continuing to experience strong organic growth in the second quarter, led by our currency hedged equity ETFs. Importantly, we are continuing to plant the seeds for future growth as we execute against the strategic growth initiatives we previously outlined for the year, including investments in people, products and technology."

First Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 40.1% from the first quarter of 2014 and 21.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 to a record $60.1 million primarily due to higher average AUM from strong inflows. Revenues from our European listed ETPs, which were acquired in April 2014, increased to $0.6 million from $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher inflows for the Boost branded ETPs. The average advisory fee for our US listed ETFs increased to 0.52% as compared to 0.51% for the first quarter of 2014 due to the change in the mix of our AUM and remained the same at 0.52% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.

Margins

Gross margin for our US listed ETFs, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 83.2% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 78.6% in the first quarter of 2014 and 82.5% in the fourth quarter of 2014. The increase was primarily due to beneficial pricing changes for our fund accounting, administration and custody services, which took effect in April 2014, as well as higher average AUM.

Consolidated pre-tax margin was 35.0% in the first quarter of 2015. Pre-tax margin for our U.S. listed ETFs was 38.3% on average U.S. listed AUM of $46.4 billion. The Company`s margins were compressed in the first quarter due to the timing difference between when the Company recorded higher compensation costs from record inflows levels versus when it recognizes the full impact of the revenues from these inflows.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 48.0% from the first quarter of 2014 and 18.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 to $39.1 million. Included in the quarter was $2.4 million of expenses associated with our European listed ETPs.
•Compensation and benefits expense increased 110% from the first quarter of 2014 to $19.6 million due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our record setting inflow levels experienced in the quarter as well as higher headcount related expenses to support our growth. Included in the quarter was $1.1 million in compensation costs for employees associated with our European listed ETPs. Our headcount was 109 in the US and 136 globally at the end of the quarter.
•Fund management and administration expense increased 10.9% from the first quarter of 2014 to $10.2 million. Fees associated with higher inflow levels, average AUM and number of ETFs increased, and were partly offset by lower fees as a result of changing our fund accounting, administration and custody service provider in April 2014. We also incurred additional costs for our European listed ETPs which were acquired in April 2014. This expense increased 13.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 due to expenses associated with higher inflow levels and additional costs for the WisdomTree branded ETFs which were launched in Europe in the fourth quarter. We had 70 US listed ETFs and 63 European listed ETPs at the end of the quarter.
•Marketing and advertising expense increased 19.3% from the first quarter of 2014 and 7.2% from the fourth quarter to $3.1 million primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.
•Sales and business development expense increased 46.0% from the first quarter of 2014 to $1.9 million primarily due to higher spending for sales related activities. This expense was relatively unchanged compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.
•Professional and consulting fees decreased 18.5% from the first quarter of 2014 to $1.5 million. In the first quarter of last year, we incurred advisory fees in connection with our acquisition of Boost. This expense decreased 42.9% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 primarily due to lower fees relating to strategic consulting services.
•Occupancy, communication and equipment expense was essentially unchanged at $0.9 million as compared to the first and fourth quarters of last year.
•Depreciation and amortization expense was also relatively unchanged at $0.2 million as compared to the first and fourth quarters of last year.
•Third-party sharing arrangements expense increased to $0.3 million in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher fees for our marketing agents in Latin America and listing our ETFs on a third party platform.
•Acquisition contingent payment expense was $0.3 million in the first quarter. This represents the current expense accrual for expected payments due to the former Boost shareholders related to our acquisition in April 2014 and is primarily driven by increased AUM derived from our European business.
•Income tax expense was $9.0 million for the first quarter of 2015. The effective tax rate on our US listed ETF business increased to 39.4% from 38.3% in the fourth quarter of last year due to state taxes. The Company`s overall effective tax rate was 42.6% due to the non-deductibility of losses in our European ETP business. These losses may be recognized in the future after the European business is profitable. The Company recorded a tax benefit of $13.7 million in the first quarter of last year related to its deferred tax asset, which previously had been recorded with a full valuation allowance.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2015, the Company had total assets of $217.9 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents and investments of $173.3 million. There were approximately 135.6 million shares of common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2015. Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 137.3 million for the first quarter.

Quarterly Dividend and Stock Buyback

The Company`s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.08 per share of the Company`s common stock. The dividend will be paid on May 27, 2015 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 13, 2015. In addition, during the quarter, the Company purchased approximately 773,000 shares for $14.1 million.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management`s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:
•anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets and ETPs;
•anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our ETPs;
•our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;
•our ability to develop new products and services;
•our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to us at favorable costs;
•our ability to successfully expand our business into non-U.S. markets;
•timing of payment of our cash income taxes;
•competition in our business; and
•the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.

Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:
•Recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.
•Challenging global market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing customers to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.
•Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.
•We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from a limited number of products - in particular two funds, the WisdomTree Europe Hedged Equity Fund and the WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund - and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the AUM of those funds.
•Most of our AUM are held in our U.S. listed ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.
•We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from international hedged equity ETFs and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks, as well as general investor sentiment regarding monetary policy of those markets.
•We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in securities of Japanese and European companies and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks, as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets and currency fluctuations.
•We derive a significant portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.
•Many of our ETPs and ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.
•We depend on third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and our ETPs and ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm our customers.

Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company`s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include gross margin, gross margin percentage and our operating results for our US and European listed ETF businesses. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We disclose gross margin as a non-GAAP financial measurement to allow investors to analyze our revenues less the direct costs paid to third parties attributable to those revenues. We disclose the results of our US listed ETF business to allow investors to better compare our results to the prior year as in April 2014, we acquired Boost ETP, a UK based ETP sponsor.

$0.08 diluted net income EPS

Pre-tax income increases 35% and revenues increase 19% from year ago quarter

Declares $0.08 quarterly dividend and $100 million share buyback program

Lowers baseline U.S. tax rate to approximately 38%

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. ( WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") and exchange-traded product ("ETP") sponsor and asset manager, today reported net income of $10.6 million or $0.08 per diluted EPS in the third quarter. Pre-tax income was $20.3 million in the third quarter, an increase of 35.4% from the third quarter of 2013 and 0.6% from the second quarter of 2014. Pre-tax income is comparable to previous periods since prior to 2014, the Company did not record tax expense because of its net operating losses.

Included in the quarter was a loss of $1.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted EPS, associated with the Company's European listed ETP business, which was acquired in April 2014. The Company also lowered its U.S. income tax rate to approximately 38% from 45% (see "Income Taxes" for further discussion).

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg said, "WisdomTree reported another quarter of record revenues and strong financial results. Despite the challenging market, net inflow levels increased from the second quarter to $748 million."

Mr. Steinberg continued, "The growing scale and positive momentum of our business is driving powerful cash generation. In addition, we are lowering our tax rate which will increase our earnings going forward, further propelling WisdomTree to a position of financial strength. As a result, we believe the time is right to institute a new component of our capital management program."

Capital Return Program - Quarterly Dividend and Share Buyback

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.08 per share of the Company's common stock. The dividend will be paid on November 26, 2014, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 12, 2014.

The Board also authorized the Company to purchase up to $100 million of its common stock over three years, including purchases to offset future equity grants made under the Company's equity plans. Purchases under this program will be made in open market or privately negotiated transactions. This authority may be exercised from time to time and in such amounts as market conditions warrant, and subject to regulatory considerations. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, corporate and regulatory requirements, market conditions, and other corporate liquidity requirements and priorities. The repurchase program may be suspended or terminated at any time without prior notice.

"We have structured a capital management plan which reflects WisdomTree's strength, strategy and commitment to our shareholders. With $164 million in cash and investments, we are confident we can continue to profitably grow the business and reinvest aggressively for future growth while continuing to generate surplus cash," added Mr. Steinberg.

Assets Under Management and Net Inflows

U.S. listed ETF assets under management ("AUM") were $35.8 billion at September 30, 2014, up 14.3% from September 30, 2013 primarily due to inflow levels. U.S. listed AUM was up 0.9% from June 30, 2014 primarily due to $0.7 billion of net inflows partly offset by $0.4 billion of negative market movement.

European listed AUM was $123.2 million, up 8.8% from $113.2 million at June 30, 2014 primarily due to $19.2 million of net inflows partly offset by $9.2 million of negative market movement.

Performance

In evaluating the performance of our U.S. listed equity, fixed income and alternative ETFs against actively managed and index based mutual funds and ETFs, 86% of the $35.3 billion invested in our ETFs and 56% (29 of 52) of our ETFs outperformed their comparable Morningstar average since inception as of September 30, 2014.

Third Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 18.9% from the third quarter of 2013 and 6.8% compared to the second quarter of 2014 to $47.1 million primarily due to higher average AUM and average fee capture. Included in the third quarter was $0.2 million in revenues from our European listed ETPs, which were acquired in April 2014. Our average advisory fee for our U.S. listed ETFs was 0.52% as compared to 0.51% for the third quarter of 2013 and 0.51% in the second quarter of 2014.

Margins

Gross margin for our U.S. listed ETFs, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 82.2% in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to 76.9% in the third quarter of 2013 and 82.4% in the second quarter of 2014. The increase was primarily due to beneficial pricing changes for our fund accounting, administration and custody services, which took effect April 2014.

Pre-tax margin was 43.0% in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to 37.8% in the third quarter of 2013 and 45.6% in the second quarter of 2014. Pre-tax margin for our U.S. listed ETFs was 46.6% in the quarter.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 8.9% from the third quarter of 2013 and 11.9% compared to the second quarter of 2014 to $26.9 million. Included in the quarter was $1.8 million of expenses associated with our European listed ETPs.

• Compensation and benefits expense increased 3.5% from the third quarter of 2013 to $10.0 million as lower accrued incentive compensation due to our inflow levels were offset by higher headcount related expenses to support our growth. In addition, we incurred higher compensation costs due to our acquisition of Boost in April 2014. This expense increased 32.3% as compared to the second quarter of 2014 primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation and headcount related expenses. Our global headcount was 114 at the end of the third quarter of 2014.

• Fund management and administration expense decreased 3.7% from the third quarter of 2013 to $8.5 million. This decrease was primarily due to the transfer of our fund accounting, administration and custody services to State Street, despite the higher average AUM. Partly offsetting this decrease was $0.3 million of expenses for our European listed ETPs. This expense increased 8.3% from the second quarter of 2014 primarily due to variable costs related to higher average AUM. We had 69 U.S. listed ETFs and 42 European listed ETPs at the end of the third quarter of 2014.

• Marketing and advertising expense increased 64.5% from the third quarter of 2013 and 22.6% from the second quarter of 2014 to $3.3 million primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.

• Sales and business development expense decreased 2.0% from the third quarter of 2013 and 25.9% from the second quarter of 2014 to $1.3 million primarily due to lower spending for sales and product development related initiatives.

• Professional and consulting fees increased $0.8 million from the third quarter of 2013 to $1.4 million primarily due to higher strategic corporate consulting costs. This expense decreased 24.8% compared to the second quarter of 2014. The second quarter of 2014 included advisory and other costs associated with our transaction to acquire Boost, which we completed in April 2014.

• Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased 22.0% from the third quarter of 2013 to $0.9 million primarily due to costs for new office space which we began to occupy in January 2014. This expense was relatively unchanged compared to the second quarter of 2014.

• Depreciation and amortization expense increased $0.1 million to $0.2 million from the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to amortization of leasehold improvements for our new office space. This expense was essentially unchanged compared to the second quarter of 2014.

• Third-party sharing arrangements expense decreased 50.0% to $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2014 as compared to the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to lower fees to our third party marketing agent in Latin America. This expense was relatively unchanged as compared to the second quarter of 2014.

• Other expenses remained relatively unchanged as compared to the third quarter of 2013 and second quarter of 2014 at $1.1 million.
Income Taxes

The Company completed state tax planning which resulted in a reduction of its current baseline operating tax rate in the U.S. from 45% to approximately 38%. As a result, the Company recorded a charge to tax expense to reduce the value of its deferred tax asset, which had previously been recorded at a 45% rate. In addition, the Company accounted for non-deductible expenses associated with its acquisition of Boost in April 2014. As a result of these items, the Company recorded a charge of $1.3 million to tax expense. Management will discuss income taxes further on its conference call.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had total assets of $202.2 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents of $151.3 million and investments of $12.2 million. There were approximately 131.9 million shares of common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2014. Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 138.3 million for the third quarter.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:

• anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets and ETPs;

• anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our ETPs;

• our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;

• our ability to develop new products and services;

• our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to U.S. at favorable costs;

• our ability to successfully expand our business into non-U.S. markets;

• timing of payment of our cash income taxes;

• competition in our business; and

• the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.
Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:

• We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.

• Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing customers to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.

• Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.

• Most of our assets under management are held in our U.S. listed ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.

• We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.

• We derive a substantial amount of our revenue from products invested in securities of Japanese companies and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets and currency fluctuations between the Japanese Yen and the U.S. Dollar.

• We derive a majority of our revenue from a limited number of products -- in particular one fund, WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund, that accounted for approximately 30% of our ETF AUM -- and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.

• Our ETPs and ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.

• We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and our ETPs and ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm our customers.
Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include gross margin, gross margin percentage and our operating results for our U.S. listed ETF business. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We disclose gross margin as a non-GAAP financial measurement to allow investors to analyze our revenues less the direct costs paid to third parties attributable to those revenues. We disclose the results of our U.S. listed ETF business to allow investors to better compare our results to the prior year as in April 2014, we acquired Boost ETP, a UK based ETP sponsor.

Pre-Tax Income of $16.5 Million; Doubles From Year Ago Quarter

$0.12 Diluted Pretax EPS

Revenues Increase 46% From Year Ago Quarter

NEW YORK, May 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (WETF), an exchange-traded product ("ETP") sponsor and asset manager, today reported pre-tax income of $16.5 million or $0.12 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2013 and $16.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Included in the quarter were $1.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted EPS, of costs associated with our acquisition of U.K.-based ETP provider Boost and non-recurring costs for transitioning our fund accounting and administration services. The Company also recorded a non-recurring tax benefit of $13.7 million resulting in net income of $30.2 million for the first quarter of 2014.1

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg said, "WisdomTree's powerful operating model produced strong financial results in the first quarter on a base of $33.9 billion in average ETF assets. Even against the backdrop of a challenging market environment for some of our largest exposures, we increased revenues and earnings year over year, demonstrating the scale and strength of our business."

Mr. Steinberg continued, "We completed important initiatives, including a seamless transition in back office fund accounting, administration and custody services. We also completed our investment to establish WisdomTree Europe and look forward to building out a platform of Boost and WisdomTree products for the world's second largest ETF market. We continue to invest strategically to make WisdomTree even more competitive for the future."

First Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 46.3% to $42.9 million as compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher average AUM. Revenues decreased 0.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 due to two less revenue days in the first quarter. Our average advisory fee was 0.51% as compared to 0.54% for the first quarter of 2013 and 0.51% in the fourth quarter of 2013 due to a change in mix of our ETFs.

Margins

Our gross margin, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 78.6% in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to 71.6% in the first quarter of 2013 and 78.2% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Our pre-tax margin was 38.4% in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to 26.8% in the first quarter of 2013 and 38.2% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 23.1% to $26.4 million from $21.5 million in the first quarter of 2013. Total expenses decreased 0.9% from $26.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Included in the quarter was $0.8 million of costs associated with our acquisition of Boost and $0.5 million in non-recurring costs for transitioning our fund accounting and administration services.

Compensation and benefits expense increased 25.0% to $9.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2013. This increase was primarily due to higher headcount related expenses to support our growth as well as higher payroll taxes associated with 2013 bonus payments.
Compensation and benefits expense decreased 2.9% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 primarily due to lower accrued incentive compensation partly offset by higher payroll taxes and stock based compensation associated with 2013 bonus awards.

Our headcount at the end of the first quarter of 2014 was 90 compared to 72 at the end of the first quarter of 2013 and 87 at the end of 2013.

Fund management and administration expenses increased 11.5% to $9.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2013. Higher average AUM resulted in a $0.6 million increase in variable fees charged by our third party service providers associated with AUM. In addition, we incurred a non-recurring charge of $0.5 million for transitioning our fund accounting and administration services.
Fund management and administration expenses increased 2.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 primarily due to the transition cost referred to above. Partly offsetting this increase was a decrease in regulatory fees associated with net inflow levels and certain variable fees associated with a decrease in our emerging markets AUM.

We had 62 ETFs at the end of the first quarter of 2014 compared to 47 at the end of the first quarter of 2013 and 61 at the end of 2013.

Marketing and advertising expenses increased to $2.6 million representing an increase of 33.1% from the first quarter and 20.2% from the fourth quarter of last year primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.
Sales and business development expenses decreased to $1.3 million representing a decrease of 27.8% from the first quarter and 29.6% from the fourth quarter of last year primarily due to lower levels of spending for sales related initiatives.
Professional and consulting fees increased to $1.8 million representing an increase of 192.8% from the first quarter and 91.8% from the fourth quarter of last year primarily due to advisory and other costs associated with our transaction to acquire Boost. In addition, corporate legal fees increased as well as technology consulting expenses associated with our office relocation.
Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased to $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2014 representing a 138.7% increase from the first quarter of last year primarily due to costs for new office space which we began to occupy in January 2014. This expense decreased 17.7% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 primarily due to the expiration in January 2014 of the lease for our previous office space. From September 2013 to January 2014, we recognized rent expense for the new office space we were preparing to occupy while continuing to recognize rent expense for the old space we were occupying at the time.
Depreciation and amortization expense increased to $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2014 representing a 134.1% increase from the first quarter of last year primarily due to amortization of leasehold improvements for our new office space. This expense was essentially unchanged compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.
Third-party sharing arrangements expense decreased to $0.01 million representing a decrease of 91.0% from the first quarter and 97.8% from the fourth quarter of last year primarily due to lower levels of inflows from our third party marketing agent in Latin America.
Other expenses increased 32.6% to $1.1 million compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher independent director fees as well as higher general and administrative expenses. This expense decreased 20.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 primarily due to lower overhead related expenses.
Taxes

The Company recorded a non-recurring tax benefit of $13.7 million in the first quarter to recognize the Company's deferred tax asset, which previously had been reserved with a 100% valuation allowance. The Company expects to record GAAP taxes beginning in the second quarter at a rate of 45%; however, for some time it will not be paying cash taxes due to the size of its net operating losses. The Company will discuss this topic on its conference call.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had total assets of $159.7 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents of $104.8 million and investments of $11.8 million. There were approximately 131.5 million shares of common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2014. Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding were approximately 138.7 million for the first quarter.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:

anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets;
anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our exchange traded funds;
our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;
our ability to develop new products and services;
our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to us at favorable costs;
competition in our business; and
the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.
Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:

We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.
Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing WisdomTree ETF shareholders to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.
Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.
Most of our assets under management are held in ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.
We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.
We derive a substantial amount of our revenue from products invested in securities of Japanese companies and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets and currency fluctuations between the Japanese Yen and the U.S. Dollar.
We derive a majority of our revenue from a limited number of products--in particular one fund, WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund, that accounted for approximately one third of our ETF AUM--and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.
The WisdomTree ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.
We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and the WisdomTree ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm WisdomTree ETF shareholders.
Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include gross margin and gross margin percentage. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We disclose gross margin as a non-GAAP financial measurement to allow investors to analyze our revenues less the direct costs paid to third parties attributable to those revenues.

Diluted EPS $0.12 for the quarter and $0.37 for the year

Record revenues up 83% from year ago quarter and 76% for the year

$2.3 billion net inflows in quarter and record $14.3 billion for the year

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") sponsor and asset manager, today reported net income of $16.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, or $0.12 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $15.0 million in the third quarter of 2013. For the full year, net income was $51.5 million, or $0.37 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $11.0 million in 2012.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg commented, "2013 was a year of transformational growth, stellar operating performance and record financial results for WisdomTree. Powered by $14.3 billion in net inflows, our revenues are up 76% for the year, and with the growth of our business we are demonstrating the scale, efficiency and earnings power of our operating model."

Mr. Steinberg continued, "We also continued to invest in our business to position WisdomTree for future growth. During the course of the year we bolstered our product set in important categories like domestic equities, domestic fixed income and currency hedged equities. In total, 15 new products launched in 2013 provide investment solutions for a strengthening U.S. dollar, as well as rising interest rates."

Mr. Steinberg concluded, "We also made important strides at the business level, including the announcement last quarter of a new fund administration and custody services relationship with State Street Bank and Trust Company, a global leader with the infrastructure to support our growth. Today, we announced expansion plans for the European ETF market. As we continue into 2014 with strong momentum, I am excited about the significant opportunities for WisdomTree's expansion and development."

Fourth Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 83.1% to a record $43.2 million as compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and 8.9% compared to the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher average AUM as a result of positive net inflows into our ETFs and market appreciation. Our average advisory fee earned was 0.51% as compared to 0.54% for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 0.51% in the third quarter of 2013 due to the majority of our inflows going to our Japan hedged equity ETF (DXJ), which has an expense ratio of 0.48%.

Margins

Our gross margin, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 78% in the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to 68% in the fourth quarter of 2012 and 77% in the third quarter of 2013.

Our pre-tax margin was 38% in the third and fourth quarters of 2013 as compared to 22% in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 45.7% to $26.7 million from $18.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Included in the prior year quarter was $0.2 million of net costs related to patent litigation and offering costs. Total expenses increased 8.2% from $24.7 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Compensation and benefits expense increased 56.3% to $9.6 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our record level of net inflows in 2013 and higher headcount related expenses to support our growth.
Compensation and benefits expense was essentially unchanged from the third quarter of 2013 as higher accrued incentive compensation was partly offset by lower stock based compensation.
Our headcount at the end of 2013 was 87 compared to 70 at the end of 2012 and 84 at the end of the third quarter of 2013.
Fund management and administration expenses increased 41.1% to $9.0 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. At the end of 2012, we ended our joint venture with BNY Mellon. As a result, we began to record certain operating costs related to our currency and fixed income ETFs, which were previously recognized by BNY Mellon as part of the joint venture. This resulted in approximately $0.5 million in higher costs this quarter, while eliminating the expense of the third-party sharing arrangement. Higher average AUM resulted in a $1.9 million increase in variable fees charged by our third party service providers associated with AUM.
Fund management and administration expenses increased 1.8% compared to the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher average AUM as well as costs associated with new ETFs.
We have 61 ETFs at the end of the year compared to 46 at the end of 2012 and 53 at the end of the third quarter of 2013.
Marketing and advertising expenses increased to $2.1 million representing an increase of 31.8% from the fourth quarter of last year and 5.6% from the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.
Sales and business development expenses increased to $1.8 million representing an increase of 75.5% from the fourth quarter of last year and 41.6% from the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher levels of spending for sales related initiatives.
Professional and consulting fees increased to $0.9 million representing an increase of 18.8% from the fourth quarter of last year and 72.7% from the third quarter of 2013 primarily due advisory costs associated with our transaction to acquire a majority stake in Boost ETP.
Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased to $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 representing a 196.2% increase from the fourth quarter of last year and 51.2% from the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to costs for new office space which we began to occupy in January 2014.
Third-party sharing arrangements expense decreased 65.0% to $0.5 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 due to the end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon discussed above.
Third-party sharing arrangements expense increased 21.7% compared to the third quarter of 2013 due to higher inflow levels by our marketing agent in Latin America.
Other expenses increased 87.8% to $1.4 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and increased 23.5% compared to the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses.
Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2013, WisdomTree had total assets of $141.8 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents of $104.3 million and investments of $11.7 million. There were approximately 130.4 million shares of common stock outstanding as of December 31, 2013. Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding were approximately 140.0 million for the fourth quarter and full year.

Net Operating Loss

The Company's pretax net operating loss carryforward (NOL) was $136.5 million at December 31, 2012. The Company estimates its NOL has increased to approximately $143.0 million as of December 31, 2013. The increase was primarily due to the tax benefit the Company receives when its employees exercise options or vest in restricted stock. The Company will discuss the treatment of its NOL further on its earnings call.

Conference Call

WisdomTree will discuss its results and operational highlights during a conference call on Friday, January 31, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. ET. The call-in number will be (877) 303-7209.

Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:

We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.
Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing WisdomTree ETF shareholders to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.
Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.
Most of our assets under management are held in ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.
We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.
We derive a substantial amount of our revenue from products invested in securities of Japanese companies and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets and currency fluctuations between the Japanese Yen and the U.S. Dollar.
We derive a majority of our revenue from a limited number of products--in particular one fund, WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund, that accounted for more than one third of our ETF AUM--and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.
The WisdomTree ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.
We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and the WisdomTree ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm WisdomTree ETF shareholders.
Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include proforma operating income, proforma operating expenses, proforma pre-tax operating margin, gross margin and gross margin percentage. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We have disclosed our results excluding certain non-operating items including (1) our patent litigation with Research Affiliates LLC; (2) expenses for the WisdomTree ETF shareholder proxy solicitation; and (3) advisory and other related fees associated with the secondary offering of our common stock in November 2012. Management excludes these items when measuring our financial performance as they are not directly related to our core business of being an ETF sponsor and asset manager. We disclose gross margin as a non-GAAP financial measurement to allow investors to analyze our revenues less the direct costs paid to third parties attributable to those revenues.

This compares to $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $12.2 million in the second quarter of 2013.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg commented, "WisdomTree continues to drive top line growth with $1.2 billion in net inflows in the quarter, comprised by balanced inflows across domestic, international and emerging market equity ETFs; as well as continued strength in our franchise-leading yen hedged Japan fund. We are effectively capitalizing on the greater awareness of our currency hedged equity family which is translating into significant asset growth in sister products. Importantly, we continue to position the company for future growth and have launched eight new ETFs so far this year."

Mr. Steinberg added, "As we continue to grow and reach economies of scale, we are demonstrating the powerful operating leverage in our business. WisdomTree's pre-tax margins reached 38% on a base of $30.5 billion in average assets under management."

Assets Under Management, Net Inflows and Market Share

ETF assets under management ("AUM") were $31.4 billion at September 30, 2013, up 86.8% from $16.8 billion at September 30, 2012, and up 8.2% from $29.0 billion at June 30, 2013. Net inflows for the third quarter of 2013 were $1.2 billion as compared to $1.0 billion in the third quarter of 2012 and $5.0 billion in the second quarter of 2013. WisdomTree's market share of industry net inflows was 2.1% in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to 2.0% in the third quarter of 2012 and 32.2% in the second quarter of 2013. For the first nine months of 2013, WisdomTree's market share was 9.8% as compared to 2.8% in the same period last year.

Third Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 83.0% to a record $39.6 million as compared to the third quarter of 2012 and 6.2% compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher average AUM as a result of positive net inflows into our ETFs and market appreciation. Our average advisory fee earned was 0.51% as compared to 0.54% for the third quarter of 2012 and 0.52% in the second quarter of 2013 due to the majority of our inflows going to our Japan hedged equity ETF (DXJ), which has an expense ratio of 0.48%.

Margins

Our gross margin, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 77% in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to 68% in the third quarter of 2012 and 74% in the second quarter of 2013.

Our pre-tax margin was 38% in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to 21% (or 22% proforma) in the third quarter of 2012 and 33% in the second quarter of 2013 reflecting the operating scale in our business model.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 44.0% to $24.7 million from $17.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. Included in the prior year quarter was $0.2 million of net costs related to patent litigation. Excluding this cost, total expenses increased 45.9% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Total expenses decreased 1.7% from $25.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.
• Compensation and benefits expense increased 68.3% to $9.6 million compared to the third quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our record level of net inflows on a year-to-date basis in 2013; higher headcount related expenses to support our growth; and higher stock based compensation expense due to equity awards granted to our employees as part of 2012 year-end compensation.

Compensation and benefits expense increased 2.1% compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to payroll taxes as a result of option exercises as well as increased headcount. Partly offsetting these increases, was lower accrued incentive compensation due to our lower level of net inflows in the third quarter as compared to the second quarter of 2013.

Our headcount at the end of the third quarter of 2013 was 84 compared to 70 at the end of the third quarter of 2012 and 79 at the end of the second quarter of 2013.

• Fund management and administration expenses increased 55.1% to $8.8 million compared to the third quarter of 2012. At the end of 2012, we ended our joint venture with BNY Mellon. As a result, we began to record certain operating costs related to our currency and fixed income ETFs, which were previously recognized by BNY Mellon as part of the joint venture. This resulted in approximately $0.5 million in higher costs this quarter, while eliminating the expense of the third-party sharing arrangement. Higher average AUM resulted in a $2.3 million increase in variable fees charged by our third party service providers associated with AUM.

Fund management and administration expenses decreased 3.4% compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to variable regulatory fees associated with net inflow levels. We also incurred higher expenses in the second quarter due to the annual rebalancing of our international equity ETFs.

• Marketing and advertising expenses increased $1.2 million to $2.0 million compared to the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth. This expense decreased 7.5% compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to lower levels of advertising related activities.

• Sales and business development expenses increased 57.0% to $1.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 primarily due to new product development related activities as well as higher levels of spending for sales related initiatives.

Sales and business development expenses decreased 14.1% compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to lower level of sales related spending.

• Professional and consulting fees decreased 58.5% to $0.5 million compared to the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to lower variable stock based compensation, which ended as of the end of 2012. Professional and consulting fees decreased 17.5% compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to lower level of spending for business consultants.

• Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased 93.3% to $0.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2012 and increased 22.3% compared to the second quarter of 2013. This increase was primarily due to costs for new office space which we will occupy in January 2014 as well as expense related to commercial rent tax.

• Third-party sharing arrangements expense decreased 68.7% to $0.4 million compared to the third quarter of 2012 due to the end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon discussed above.

Third-party sharing arrangements expense decreased 12.6% compared to the second quarter of 2013 due to lower inflow levels by our marketing agent in Latin America.

• Other expenses increased 35.5% to $1.2 million compared to the third quarter of 2012 and increased 9.7% compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2013, WisdomTree had total assets of $118.3 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents of $87.1 million and investments of $11.6 million.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:
• anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets;

• anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our exchange traded funds;

• our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;

• our ability to develop new products and services;

• our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to us at favorable costs;

• competition in our business; and

• the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.

Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:
• We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.

• Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing WisdomTree ETF shareholders to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.

• Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.

• Most of our assets under management are held in ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.

• We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.

• We derive a substantial amount of our revenue from products invested in securities of Japanese companies and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets and currency fluctuations between the Japanese Yen and the U.S. Dollar.

• We derive a majority of our revenue from a limited number of products--in particular one fund, WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund, that accounted for more than one third of our ETF AUM at September 30, 2013--and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.

• The WisdomTree ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.

• We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and the WisdomTree ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm WisdomTree ETF shareholders.

Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements

In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include proforma operating income, proforma expenses, proforma pre-tax operating margin and gross margin. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We have disclosed our results excluding certain non-operating items including (1) our patent litigation with Research Affiliates LLC; and (2) expenses for the WisdomTree ETF shareholder proxy solicitation. Management excludes these items when measuring our financial performance as they are not directly related to our core business of being an ETF sponsor and asset manager. We disclose gross margin as a non-GAAP financial measurement to allow investors to analyze our revenues less the direct costs paid to third parties attributable to those revenues.

WisdomTree Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results
GlobeNewswirePress Release: WisdomTree Investments, Inc. – Fri, Jul 26, 2013 7:00 AM EDT..

$5.0 Billion Net Inflows in Quarter

Net Inflow Market Share 29% in Second Quarter, 15% First Half

Record Revenues, Up 83% From Year Ago Quarter

Record Net Income $12.2 Million, Up 56% From Prior Quarter

Diluted EPS $0.09

NEW YORK, July 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") sponsor and asset manager, today reported net income of $12.2 million for the second quarter of 2013, or $0.09 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2013.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg commented, "With $5.0 billion in net inflows for the quarter and nearly $11 billion in the first half of 2013, we continued our positive momentum from the first quarter to achieve a strong second quarter with record market share gains. WisdomTree was the third best asset gatherer across all U.S. mutual fund and ETF complexes in the second quarter according to Morningstar."

Mr. Steinberg continued, "WisdomTree's innovative ETF strategies are powering our top-line growth, with our currency hedged equity and domestic equity families leading our net inflows in the second quarter. While growing our existing funds, we are also seeking to bolster and expand upon the success of these strategies by launching new funds. In the second quarter, we listed two new currency hedged equity funds and our first dividend growth ETF.

Mr. Steinberg concluded, "Our robust asset growth is translating into excellent financial results with record revenues and net income in the second quarter. While we believe the ETF industry is still in its early innings of growth, WisdomTree is already proving the efficiency and scale of our business model: we achieved a 33% pre-tax margin on a base of $28.4 billion in average assets."

Assets Under Management, Net Inflows and Market Share

ETF assets under management ("AUM") were $29.0 billion at June 30, 2013, up 93.1% from $15.0 billion at June 30, 2012, and up 15.4% from $25.1 billion at March 31, 2013. Net inflows for the second quarter of 2013 were $5.0 billion as compared to $0.3 billion in the second quarter of 2012 and $5.9 billion in the first quarter of 2013. WisdomTree's market share of industry net inflows was 29.4% in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to 1.4% in the second quarter of 2012 and 10.8% in the first quarter of 2013. For the first six months of 2013, WisdomTree's market share was 15.2% as compared to 3.4% for the first six months of 2012.

Second Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 83.1% to a record $37.3 million as compared to the second quarter of 2012 and 27.2% compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher average AUM as a result of $5.0 billion of net inflows into our ETFs.

Our average advisory fee earned was 0.52% as compared to 0.54% for the second quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2013 due to the majority of our inflows arising from our Japan Hedged Equity Fund (DXJ), which is priced at 0.48%.

Margins

Our gross margin, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 74% in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to 67% in the second quarter of 2012 and 72% in the first quarter of 2013. Higher AUM and the end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon were the primary drivers for the higher gross margin.

Our pre-tax margin was 33% in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to 1% (or 15% proforma) in the second quarter of 2012 and 27% in the first quarter of 2013 reflecting the operating scale in our business model.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 23.8% to $25.1 million from $20.3 million in the second quarter of 2012 and increased 16.8% from $21.5 million in the first quarter of 2013. Included in the prior periods were non-operating items related to patent litigation and ETF shareholder proxy.

Proforma operating expenses (non-GAAP) $25,089 $21,487 $17,257 16.8% 45.4%
• Compensation and benefits expense increased 72.5% to $9.4 million compared to the second quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our record level of net inflows. In addition, we incurred higher stock based compensation due to equity awards granted to our employees as part of year-end compensation. Lastly, we incurred higher headcount related expenses. Our headcount at the end of the second quarter of 2013 was 79 compared to 66 at the end of the second quarter of 2012.


Compensation and benefits expense increased 26.3% compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our strong results.
• Fund management and administration expenses increased 63.6% to $9.1 million compared to the second quarter of 2012. At the end of 2012, we ended our joint venture with BNY Mellon. As a result, we began to record certain operating costs related to our currency and fixed income ETFs, which were previously recognized by BNY Mellon as part of the joint venture. This resulted in approximately $0.6 million in higher costs, while eliminating the expense of the third-party sharing arrangement. Higher average AUM resulted in a $2.7 million increase in portfolio management, fund administration, accounting, index licensing, regulatory and distribution fees. We also incurred $0.3 million in higher printing related fees due to an increase in the number of holders of our ETFs.


Fund management and administration expenses increased 10.7% compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher average AUM.
• Marketing and advertising expenses increased 41.9% to $2.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 and increased 13.4% compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.

• Sales and business development expenses increased 80.5% to $1.5 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 primarily due to new product development related activities as well as higher levels of spending for sales related initiatives.


Sales and business development expenses decreased 15.6% compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to lower level of sales related spending.
• Professional and consulting fees decreased 53.1% to $0.7 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 primarily due to lower variable stock based compensation, which ended as of the end of 2012, partly offset by higher corporate consulting related fees. Professional and consulting fees increased slightly compared to the first quarter of 2013.

• Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased 57.6% to $0.6 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 and increased 56.8% compared to the first quarter of 2013. This increase was primarily due to $0.2 million in commercial rent tax expense payable to NYC on our office space since 2008.

• Third-party sharing arrangements expense declined 65.2% to $0.4 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 due to the end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon discussed above.


Third-party sharing arrangements expense increased $0.3 million compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher inflows raised by our marketing agent in Latin America.
• Other expenses increased 42.8% to $1.1 million compared to the second quarter of 2012 and increased 23.2% compared to the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2013, WisdomTree had total assets of $97.1 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents of $70.7 million and investments of $11.4 million. There were approximately 128.0 million shares of common stock issued as of June 30, 2013. Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding was approximately 140 million.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:
• anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets;

• anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our exchange traded funds;

• our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;

• our ability to develop new products and services;

• our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to us at favorable costs;

• competition in our business; and

• the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.

Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:
• We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.

• Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing WisdomTree ETF shareholders to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.

• Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.

• Most of our assets under management are held in ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.

• We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.

• We derive a substantial amount of our revenue from products invested in securities of Japanese companies and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets and currency fluctuations between the Japanese Yen and the U.S. Dollar.

• We derive a majority of our revenue from a limited number of products--in particular one fund, WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity Fund, that accounted for 34.3% of our ETF AUM at June 30, 2013--and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.

• The WisdomTree ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.

• We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and the WisdomTree ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm WisdomTree ETF shareholders.

Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

WisdomTree Announces First Quarter 2013 Results
Press Release: WisdomTree Investments, Inc. – Fri, Apr 26, 2013
+0.02
Record $5.9 Billion Net Inflows, 10.8% Market Share

Record Revenues, Up 53% From Year Ago Quarter

Record Net Income $7.9 Million, Up 50% From Prior Quarter, Up Seven Times From Year Ago Quarter

Diluted EPS $0.06

NEW YORK, April 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (WETF), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") sponsor and asset manager, today reported net income of $7.9 million for the first quarter of 2013, or $0.06 per share on a fully diluted basis. This compares to $1.1 million, or $0.01 per share on a fully diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2012 and $5.3 million, or $0.04 per share on a fully diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg commented, "WisdomTree's net inflows of $5.9 billion represented our best quarter yet and fueled a meaningful acceleration in our organic growth in 2013. The drivers behind this strong top-line growth underscore two important points: First, WisdomTree is innovating and executing at the highest levels -- our currency hedged Japanese equity strategy led the entire ETF industry with $3.9 billion of net inflows in the first quarter. Second, we are seeing balanced growth across our platform in important asset classes. In fact, excluding Japan-related assets, we achieved our second best quarter with $1.9 billion in inflows across our dividend-weighted equity and fixed income strategies."

Mr. Steinberg continued, "Our scalable business model is driving strong top-line growth, expanding margins and earnings. At $27 billion in assets and the fifth largest U.S. ETF sponsor today, WisdomTree has reached an exciting point in our development."

Assets Under Management, Net Inflows and Market Share

ETF assets under management ("AUM") were $25.1 billion at March 31, 2013, up from $15.7 billion at March 31, 2012 and $18.3 billion at December 31, 2012. Net inflows for the first quarter of 2013 were $5.9 billion compared to $2.3 billion in the first quarter of 2012 and $1.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012. WisdomTree's market share of industry net inflows was 10.8% in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 4.3% in the first quarter of 2012 and 1.9% in the fourth quarter of 2012.

First Quarter Financial Discussion

Revenues

Total revenues increased 53.1% to a record $29.3 million as compared to the first quarter of 2012 and 24.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher average AUM as a result of record $5.9 billion of net inflows into our ETFs. Our average advisory fee earned was unchanged at 0.54% as compared to the first and fourth quarters of 2012.

Margins

Our gross margin, which is our total revenues less fund management and administration expenses and third party sharing arrangements, was 72% in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 63% in the first quarter of 2012 and 68% in the fourth quarter of 2012. The end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon and higher AUM were the primary drivers for the higher gross margin.

Our pre-tax margin was 27% in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 6% in the first quarter of 2012 and 22% in the fourth quarter of 2012 reflecting the operating scale in our business model.

Expenses

Total expenses increased 19.0% to $21.5 million from $18.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 and increased 17.3% from $18.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Included in the prior periods were non-operating items related to patent litigation, ETF shareholder proxy and secondary and initial exchange listing costs.

16.2%

24.1%

• Compensation and benefits expense increased 27.7% to $7.5 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. This increase was primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation due to our record level of net inflows. Our headcount at the end of the first quarter of 2013 was 72 compared to 64 at the end of the first quarter of 2012.


Compensation and benefits expense increased 21.4% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher accrued incentive compensation, higher stock based compensation and payroll taxes.
• Fund management and administration expenses increased 51.2% to $8.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. At the end of 2012, we ended our joint venture with BNY Mellon. As a result, we began to record certain operating costs related to our currency and fixed income ETFs, which were previously recognized by BNY Mellon as part of the joint venture. This resulted in approximately $0.6 million in higher costs. Higher average AUM resulted in a $1.8 million increase in portfolio management, fund administration, accounting, index licensing, regulatory and distribution fees. We also incurred $0.3 million in higher printing related fees due to an increase in the number of holders of our ETFs.


Fund management and administration expenses increased 29.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to the end of the joint venture and higher average AUM.
• Marketing and advertising expenses increased 46.1% to $1.9 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and increased 19.1% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher levels of advertising related activities to support our growth.

• Sales and business development expenses more than doubled to $1.8 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and increased 71.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher levels of sales related initiatives and activities.

• Professional and consulting fees decreased 44.7% to $0.6 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and decreased 22.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to lower variable stock based compensation, which ended as of the end of 2012, partly offset by higher corporate consulting and accounting related fees.

• Occupancy, communication and equipment expense increased 25.2% to $0.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2012. Beginning in the second quarter of 2012, we began occupying office space we had previously sub-leased to a third party. This expense was essentially unchanged compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.

• Third-party sharing arrangements expense declined 93.6% to $0.1 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and declined 91.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 due to the end of our joint venture with BNY Mellon discussed above.

• Other expenses increased 41.4% to $0.9 million compared to the first quarter of 2012 and increased 12.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2013, WisdomTree had total assets of $76.1 million which consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents of $52.3 million and investments of $10.7 million. The Company has no debt.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, the risks described below. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read this press release completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

In particular, forward-looking statements in this press release may include statements about:
• anticipated trends, conditions and investor sentiment in the global markets;

• anticipated levels of inflows into and outflows out of our exchange traded funds;

• our ability to deliver favorable rates of return to investors;

• our ability to develop new products and services;

• our ability to maintain current vendors or find new vendors to provide services to us at favorable costs;

• competition in our business; and

• the effect of laws and regulations that apply to our business.

Our business is subject to many risks and uncertainties, including without limitation:
• We have only a limited operating history and, as a result, recent historical growth may not provide an accurate representation of the growth we may experience in the future, which may make it difficult to evaluate our future prospects.

• Challenging market conditions associated with declining prices of securities can adversely affect our business by reducing the market value of the assets we manage or causing WisdomTree ETF shareholders to sell their fund shares and trigger redemptions.

• Fluctuations in the amount and mix of our AUM may negatively impact revenue and operating margin.

• Most of our assets under management are held in ETFs that invest in foreign securities and we therefore have substantial exposure to foreign market conditions and are subject to currency exchange rate risks.

• We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from products invested in emerging markets and are exposed to the market-specific political and economic risks as well as general investor sentiment regarding future growth of those markets.

• We derive a substantial portion of our revenue from a limited number of products and, as a result, our operating results are particularly exposed to the performance of those funds, investor sentiment toward the strategies pursued by those funds and our ability to maintain the assets under management of those funds.

• The WisdomTree ETFs have a limited track record, and poor investment performance could cause our revenue to decline.

• We depend on other third parties to provide many critical services to operate our business and the WisdomTree ETFs. The failure of key vendors to adequately provide such services could materially affect our operating business and harm WisdomTree ETF shareholders.

• We may from time to time in the future be, involved in legal proceedings that could require significant management time and attention, possibly resulting in significant expense or in an unfavorable outcome, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial conditions, results of operations and cash flows.

Other factors, such as general economic conditions, including currency exchange rate fluctuations, also may have an effect on the results of our operations. For a more complete description of the risks noted above and other risks that could cause our actual results to differ from our current expectations, please see the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date of this press release. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments may cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. Therefore, these forward-looking statements do not represent our views as of any date other than the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measurements








In an effort to provide additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we also disclose certain non-GAAP information which we believe provides useful and meaningful information. The non-GAAP financial measurements included in this release include proforma operating income, proforma expenses and proforma pre-tax operating margin. Our management reviews these non-GAAP financial measurements when evaluating our financial performance and results of operations; therefore, we believe it is useful to provide information with respect to these non-GAAP measurements so as to share this perspective of management. Non-GAAP measurements do not have any standardized meaning, do not replace nor are superior to GAAP financial measurements and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measurements should be considered in the context with our GAAP results. We have disclosed our results excluding certain non-operating items including (1) our patent litigation with Research Affiliates LLC; (2) expenses for the WisdomTree ETF shareholder proxy solicitation; and (3) advisory and other related fees associated with the secondary offering of our common stock in November 2012. Management excludes these items when measuring our financial performance as they are not directly related to our core business of being an ETF sponsor and asset manager.

BNY Mellon Asset Management Announces Strategic Venture to Create New ETFs
Friday January 25, 8:00 am ET
Dreyfus and WisdomTree to Collaborate on International Cash and Fixed Income ETFs


NEW YORK, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BNY Mellon Asset Management announced today that The Dreyfus Corporation is to partner with WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (Pink Sheets: WSDT - News) on International Cash and Fixed Income ETF products. The products will be part of the WisdomTree Trust and will be co-branded and marketed by both organizations. Dreyfus will act as subadvisor to the Trust.

"BNY Mellon Asset Management comprises asset management companies with individual, proprietary investment expertise, and this unique combination of talent fosters the development of innovative investment products," said Ronald P. O'Hanley, president and chief executive officer of BNY Mellon Asset Management. "The creation of new ETFs complements what BNY Mellon Asset Management does already." BNY Quantitative Equity Management Group already subadvises for WisdomTree, among others. "BNY Mellon Asset Management's ability to distribute new ETFs in the marketplace extends our capabilities to new products that are becoming increasingly important in the retail and intermediary business," O'Hanley continued.

"Dreyfus is excited to be entering the ETF business as it is an increasingly vibrant segment of asset management," said Phil Maisano, chief investment strategist of BNY Mellon Asset Management and chief investment officer of Dreyfus. "The strategic venture between Dreyfus and WisdomTree creates a formidable player as both companies bring their respective expertise to the venture."

"WisdomTree is very excited to partner with BNY Mellon Asset Management as we venture into new asset classes," said Jonathan Steinberg, WisdomTree chief executive officer. "We believe there is significant opportunity for ETFs to provide exposure to cash products around the world. Despite U.S. cash being a $3 trillion market segment, today's U.S. investor is surprisingly limited in their ability to easily hold cash in non-U.S. cash investments. We are pleased to work with a widely recognized asset management industry leader in BNY Mellon Asset Management."

Through its asset servicing business, The Bank of New York Mellon will provide full fund accounting and administration services for the new ETFs.

WisdomTree Launches Innovative 401 (k) Platform
Monday October 8, 9:47 am ET
Open Platform Focuses on ETF Indexing Investment Strategy Using WisdomTree ETFs as Core; Supplements with No-Load Actively Managed Mutual Funds and Select Low-Cost ETFs from Other Leading Providers
Company Chairman Michael Steinhardt and Former SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt to Unveil Platform Today at 9:30 AM News Conference at the W Hotel in Times Square, NYC


NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WisdomTree Retirement Services Inc., a subsidiary of WisdomTree Investments, Inc. (Pink Sheets: WSDT - News) announced today the launch of a next-generation 401(k) solution designed to deliver a premium platform in terms of flexibility, transparency, low-costs and meaningful asset allocation to investors. The platform puts index-based investing and WisdomTree's fundamental ETFs at the heart of the investment strategy and offers the added flexibility to include no-load actively managed mutual funds for additional diversification. The all-inclusive open architecture platform features third-party ERISA fiduciary and investment advisory services and is designed to be used by Plan Sponsors, Advisors, Brokers and third-party administrators (TPAs).

Arthur Levitt, Senior Advisor to WisdomTree Investments and former Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission commented, "The inclusion of ETFs in 401(k) plans - the staple of the vast majority of American retirement portfolios - is a logical next step for these products. Along with other advocates of investor protection in our marketplace, I see ETFs revolutionizing the way 401(k) plans are assembled and operated in terms of transparency, low fees and broader selection of available investments."

CEO Jonathan Steinberg commented, "We are excited to introduce this new 401(k) platform at a time when the 401(k) market is poised for a transformation. With emphasis being placed on fees and transparency, we believe the timing is perfect. Additionally, we believe WisdomTree is ideally suited for retirement plans as a hallmark of our fundamentally weighted strategies is the focus on capital preservation and reduced volatility."

The comprehensive service platform is entirely fee-transparent, highly flexible and low in cost, offering an all-inclusive 401(k) ETF program for as low as 65 to 70 bps.(1) Within the WisdomTree 401(k) platform we have eliminated the trading fees and commissions typically associated with retail ETF purchases.

To deliver the offering WisdomTree has partnered with CLS Investment Firm LLC (CLS) for asset allocation services; Professional Capital Service (PCS) will handle participant recordkeeping and ICTC (Ameritrade) for custody and trading services.

WisdomTree offers two options:

The "Model Plan" is a wrap-fee ETF 401(k) turnkey solution that offers six professionally built ETF portfolios attuned to investors' risk tolerance or target retirement date. The models feature ETFs from WisdomTree as well as Vanguard and iShares. Additionally, advisors can supplement the ETF models with a menu of no-load, non-12b1 mutual funds.(2)

The "Custom Plan" features all of the investment options available in the Model Plan and allows advisors who can assume more fiduciary responsibility for their clients to create customized portfolios.

Al Shemtob, Director of Retirement Services commented, "We anticipate a shift in the way the retirement plan community thinks about investment strategies and related best practices. We believe that the transparent, low cost, investor-friendly nature of ETFs will prove attractive to advisors and plan administrators as the Pension Protection Act sheds light on the hidden fees present in many mutual fund offerings and places new emphasis on fee disclosures, lower expenses and ultimate fiduciary responsibility."

Press Conference dial-in:

WisdomTree will hold an event today, October 8th, to discuss the 401(k) market and the Company's plans to bring its unique offering to the marketplace at a press conference this morning being held at 9:30 at The W Hotel in Times Square. Media are encouraged to dial in at 1.877.299.4502, pass code 241 870 63#. A live web cast of the conference can be accessed at https://www.gotomeeting.com/register/926766749. International participants, please call: 1.617.597.5442, pass code 241 870 63#.
