 First-Quarter Business Commentary:

  • Sales events, net of client losses, during first-quarter 2011 totaled $13.8 million and are expected to generate net annualized recurring revenues of approximately $12.5 million.
  • Asset management, administration, and distribution fee revenues increased primarily due to higher asset balances under management and administration from existing clients because of improved capital markets.
  • Assets under management increased $6.9 billion to $179.2 billion at March 31, 2011, as compared to $172.3 billion at December 31, 2010.
  • Total consolidated expenses in first-quarter 2011 reflect increased spending on the Global Wealth Platform (GWP). During the first-quarter 2011, we incurred additional costs related to production and maintenance to run the platform as well as additional costs associated with the ongoing development of GWP. We estimate these additional costs to be approximately $3.0 million above fourth-quarter 2010 levels.
  • Net income attributable to SEI and diluted earnings per share results include gains from SIV securities of $6.9 million or approximately $.02 diluted earnings per share in first-quarter 2011 compared to $17.3 million or approximately $.05 diluted earnings per share in first-quarter 2010. Excluding the gains from SIV securities, diluted earnings per share were $.29 in first-quarter 2011 compared to $.26 in first-quarter 2010.
  • In the first-quarter 2011, SEI purchased 1,725,000 shares of its common stock for $39.5 million.
