Giving Back to Society - $75 million since IPO

Since our initial public offering in February 1999, our firm's combined charitable donations total approximately $75 million, including $48 million through the shareholder designated charitable contribution program. Based on the program created by Warren Buffett at Berkshire Hathaway, our corporate charitable giving is unique in that the recipients of GAMI's charitable contributions are chosen directly by our shareholders, rather than by our corporate officers. Since its inception in 2013, GAMI shareholders have designated charitable gifts to approximately 350 charitable organizations.

Revenue

(In thousands) Three Months Ended
March 31, 2024 March 31, 2023 $ Change % Change
Investment advisory and incentive fees
Fund revenues $37,270 $37,467 $(197) -0.5%
Institutional and Private Wealth Management 15,196 15,337 (141) -0.9%
SICAV 6 2,191 (2,185) -99.7%
Total $52,472 $54,995 $(2,523) -4.6%
Distribution fees and other income 4,473 4,911 (438) -8.9%
Total revenue $56,945 $59,906 $(2,961) -4.9%


The modest quarter over quarter decline in Funds and Institutional and Private Wealth Management revenues was primarily the result of lower average equity assets under management in those areas. The decline in the SICAV revenues relates to a change in the agreement for the merger arbitrage SICAV.

Expenses

(In thousands) Three Months Ended
March 31, 2024 March 31, 2023 $ Change % Change
Compensation $28,554 $29,186 $(632) -2.2%

Distribution costs 5,950 6,473 (523) -8.1%
Other operating expenses 4,902 5,813 (911) -15.7%
Total expenses $41,597 $43,508 $(1,911) -4.4%

  • The lower compensation expense in the first quarter of 2024 reflected lower variable compensation ($1.0 million), partially offset by higher fixed compensation ($0.2 million) and stock-based compensation ($0.2 million).
  • The $0.2 million increase in management fee is attributable to the higher pre-management fee income of $1.6 million.
  • Lower open-end fund equity assets led to year over year decline in distribution costs; and,
  • Other operating expenses this quarter were lower versus the first quarter of 2023 reflecting the change in the agreement for the merger arbitrage SICAV.

Operating Margin

The operating margin, which represents the ratio of operating income to revenue, was 27.0% for the first quarter of 2024 compared with 27.4% for the first quarter of 2023.

Non-Operating Income

(In thousands) Three Months Ended
March 31, 2024 March 31, 2023 $ Change % Change
Gain / (loss) from investments, net $1,632 $561 $1,071 190.9%

Interest expense (293) (298) 5 -1.7%
Total non-operating income $4,372 $1,924 $2,448 127.2%

Non-operating income increased $2.4 million for the quarter, reflecting the higher mark-to-market values on our investment portfolio for the quarter and the higher earnings on our cash and cash equivalents balances.

Other Financial Highlights

The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2024 was 19.8% versus 13.2% for the first quarter of 2023. The increase in the effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2024 was due to decreased reversals of prior year uncertain tax accruals.

Cash, cash equivalents, and investments were $221.1 million with no debt at March 31, 2024.

Forward-looking statements involve a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors, some of which are listed below, that are difficult to predict and could cause actual results and outcomes to differ materially from any future results or outcomes expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

We also direct your attention to the more specific discussions of these and other risks, uncertainties and other important factors contained in our Annual Report and other public filings. Other factors that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We do not undertake to update publicly any forward-looking statements if we subsequently learn that we are unlikely to achieve our expectations whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
