CLEVELAND, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Victory Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:VCTR) (“Victory Capital” or “the Company”) today announced that it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire USAA Asset Management Company (which includes its Mutual Fund and ETF businesses and 529 College Savings Plan). Victory Capital also reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2018.

Acquisition of USAA Asset Management Company

USAA Asset Management Company, based in San Antonio, Texas, was formed to serve the investment needs of the military community and their families. As of September 30, 2018, USAA Asset Management Company had $69.2 billion in assets under management and 53 investment funds. Based on AUM as of September 30, 2018, Victory Capital would have approximately $144.4 billion in firmwide AUM at the close of the transaction.2

USAA Asset Management Company will become Victory Capital’s 11th Investment Franchise and it will have the rights to offer products and services using the USAA brand.

The acquisition of USAA Asset Management Company represents a substantial expansion and diversification of Victory Capital’s investment platform, particularly in the fixed income and solutions asset classes. Based on AUM on September 30, 2018, Victory Capital’s AUM by asset class pro forma for the acquisition would be 48% equities, 26% solutions, 19% fixed income and 7% money market.2

The transaction also provides a new and unique opportunity for Victory Capital to offer its products to USAA members through a direct member-based channel with attractive organic growth and retention rates. USAA mutual funds have experienced an average 10-year organic growth rate of 3.4% compared with 1.1% for their active manager peers.3 

“The acquisition of USAA Asset Management Company is a strong diversifier for us with the addition of quality investment teams and products and provides us entry into a new distribution channel with a loyal member base made up of members of the military community and their families,” said David Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Victory Capital. “It increases our size and scale, enhances our ability to attract and retain top investment talent, and leverages our investments in critical components of our business, such as technology, operations, investment support and client service, across a broader base of assets.”  

Under terms of the purchase agreement, Victory Capital will acquire USAA Asset Management Company for $850 million plus the opportunity for additional contingent payments based on future business performance.  Victory Capital expects to finance the transaction through a combination of debt and cash on the balance sheet. It is expected to result in significant accretion to earnings per share as well as value creation for Victory Capital shareholders through expense synergies and the opportunity for meaningful organic growth. The acquisition is expected to close in the second quarter of 2019, and is subject to regulatory and other customary approvals, conditions and consents, including approval by USAA mutual fund and ETF shareholders and Board of Trustees.

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Mr. Brown said, “I am pleased to report that Victory Capital delivered strong investment results and posted record highs across several financial operating metrics in the third quarter, in the midst of continued forceful headwinds for our industry.

“Our Investment Franchises and Solutions Platform delivered strong investment performance during the quarter, with 69% of our AUM outperforming its respective benchmarks over the trailing one-year, 66% over the three-year, 75% over the five-year, and 88% over the 10-year period.

“Total AUM grew to $63.6 billion as of September 30, 2018, an 8% year-over-year increase and the highest quarter-end total that we’ve reported in our history. We also achieved record high levels of quarterly revenue, EBITDA, and operating margins. Our free cash flow yield is at the top of our peer universe and our average fee rates continue to be healthy.

“Gross flows for the quarter were strong at $2.9 billion, while overall net flows were ($672) million. Net flows were impacted by client rebalancing activity during the quarter as well as delays in our “won-but-not-funded” pipeline. Overall, our pipeline is healthy as are our sales prospects, fueled by strong investment performance and a diverse product set.

“Momentum in our VictoryShares ETFs remained strong, with net flows of $287 million for the quarter and $939 million for the first nine months of 2018. Our ETFs have experienced positive net flows every quarter since we entered the ETF business in April 2015. Year over year, as of September 30, 2018, our ETF market share has increased by 49%, according to Morningstar. 

“Finally, in September, we announced the acquisition of Harvest Volatility Management, LLC  (“Harvest”), a leader in derivative investing, specializing in yield enhancement overlay, risk reduction, alternative beta and absolute return strategies.

“Harvest, which had approximately $12 billion in AUM as of September 30, 2018, is a high-quality business with a strong organic growth history and a differentiated product set that we believe will be well received by our clients. The transaction fits squarely into our integrated multi-boutique model and is financially compelling on many levels.

“We believe our planned acquisitions of two well-respected investment managers – USAA Asset Management Company and Harvest – demonstrate the value of our differentiated business model. We look forward to welcoming both firms on to our platform. As always, serving the needs of our clients remains our top priority.”

The acquisition of Harvest is expected to close by the end of the first quarter of 2019, and is subject to regulatory and other customary approvals, conditions and consents, including approval by Harvest’s clients.

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Victory Capital uses non-GAAP financial measures referred to as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to measure the operating profitability of the Company.  These measures eliminate the impact of one-time acquisition, restructuring and integration costs and demonstrate the ongoing operating earnings metrics of the Company. The Company has included these non-GAAP measures to provide investors with the same financial metrics used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjustments made to GAAP Net Income to calculate Adjusted EBITDA are:

  • Adding back income tax;
  • Adding back interest paid on debt and other financing costs net of interest income;
  • Adding back depreciation on property and equipment;
  • Adding back other business taxes;
  • Adding back amortization of acquisition-related intangibles;
  • Adding back the expense associated with stock-based compensation associated with equity issued from pools that were created in connection with the management-led buyout with Crestview GP from KeyCorp, the Munder Acquisition and the RS Acquisition and as a result of any equity grants related to the IPO;
  • Adding back direct incremental costs of acquisitions and the IPO, including expenses associated with third-party advisors, proxy solicitations of mutual fund shareholders for transaction consents, vendor contract early termination costs, loss on other receivable recorded in connection with an acquisition and severance, retention and transaction incentive compensation;
  • Adding back debt issuance costs;
  • Adding back pre-IPO governance expenses paid to the Company’s private equity partners that terminated as of the completion of the IPO; and
  • Adjusting for earnings/losses on equity method investments.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjustments made to GAAP Net Income to calculate Adjusted Net Income are:

  • Adding back other business taxes;
  • Adding back amortization of acquisition-related intangibles;
  • Adding back the expense associated with stock-based compensation associated with equity issued from pools that were created in connection with the management-led buyout with Crestview GP from KeyCorp, the Munder Acquisition and the RS Acquisition and as a result of any equity grants related to the IPO;
  • Adding back direct incremental costs of acquisitions and the IPO, including expenses associated with third-party advisors, proxy solicitations of mutual fund shareholders for transaction consents, vendor contract early termination costs, loss on other receivable recorded in connection with an acquisition and severance, retention and transaction incentive compensation;
  • Adding back debt issuance costs;
  • Adding back pre-IPO governance expenses paid to the Company’s private equity partners that terminated as of the completion of the IPO; and
  • Subtracting an estimate of income tax expense on the adjustments.

Tax Benefit of Goodwill and Acquired Intangibles

Due to Victory Capital’s acquisitive nature, tax deductions allowed on acquired intangible assets and goodwill provide it with additional significant supplemental economic benefit.  The tax benefit of goodwill and intangibles represents the tax benefits associated with deductions allowed for intangibles and goodwill generated from prior acquisitions in which the Company received a step-up in basis for tax purposes. Acquired intangible assets and goodwill may be amortized for tax purposes, generally over a 15-year period. The tax benefit from amortization on these assets is included to show the full economic benefit of deductions for all acquired intangibles with a step-up in tax basis.
