Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income, and Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income per share are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide a relevant and useful alternative measure of our ongoing profitability and performance. We believe the Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income, and Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income per share, in addition to GAAP financial measures, provide a relevant and useful benchmark for investors, in order to assess our financial performance, ongoing operating results and comparability to other companies in our industry. These measures are utilized by our senior management to evaluate our overall performance.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as operating income before depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation originating prior to our IPO and associated with grants of ownership units of D&P Acquisitions and stock options granted in conjunction with our IPO and other items which are generally not part of our ongoing operations, including but not limited to restructuring charges and acquisition related expenses. We define Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income as net income before equity compensation associated with grants of ownership units of D&P Acquisitions and stock options granted in conjunction with our IPO, and certain items which are generally not part of our ongoing operations, including but not limited to restructuring charges and acquisition related expenses, less pro forma corporate income tax applied at an assumed effective corporate tax rate. Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income per share consists of Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income divided by the fully dilutive weighted average number of the Company's Class A and Class B shares for the applicable period. These measures are reconciled in the tables below.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income per share are non-GAAP financial measures which are not prepared in accordance with, and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to measurements required by GAAP. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

_______________
(1)  

Represents elimination of equity-compensation expense from Legacy Units associated with ownership units of D&P Acquisitions ("Legacy Units") and stock options granted in conjunction with our IPO ("IPO Options"). See further detail in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

(2)

Acquisition retention expenses include expense associated with equity or cash-based retention incentives to certain individuals who became employees of the Company through an acquisition. Equity-based incentives are typically subject to certain annual or cliff vesting provisions over three years contingent upon certain conditions which include employment. Cash-based incentives are generally subject to certain annual or cliff vesting provisions up to four years contingent upon certain conditions which may include employment. Cash-based retentive incentives may also include incentives paid to acquired employees upon the closing of an acquisition. These incentives may be in addition to future grants or cash bonuses awarded as a component of ongoing incentive compensation.

 
(3)   In June 2011, the Company identified opportunities for cost savings through office consolidations of underutilized space and workforce reductions of non-client service professionals. The Company incurred restructuring charges of $4,090 during the year ended December 31, 2011 related to these initiatives. In March 2012, the Company identified opportunities for cost savings through the elimination of our M&A Advisory practice in France and certain Investment Banking positions in France. The Company incurred restructuring charges of $1,796 during the year ended December 31, 2012 related to these initiatives and for changes in estimates of original assumptions.
(4) Acquisition, integration and corporate development costs include fees and charges associated with acquisitions and ongoing corporate development initiatives, including costs resulting from the pending merger. These costs are primarily comprised of (i) professional fees from legal, accounting, investment banking and other services, (ii) integration costs principally related to marketing, information technology, finance and real estate that are incremental and one-time in nature, (iii) gains or losses resulting from the recalculation of contingent consideration, (iv) foreign currency gains or losses from the translation of acquisition-related intercompany loans and (v) other charges such as regulatory filing fees and travel and entertainment expenses that are incremental in nature.
(5) Reflects a charge from the write off of a minority investment. The charge is reflected in "Other expense" on the Company's Consolidated Statements of Operations.
(6) Represents an adjustment to reflect an assumed annual effective corporate tax rate of approximately 39.5% and 40.6% as applied to the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, which includes a provision for U.S. federal income taxes and assumes the highest statutory rates apportioned to each state, local and/or foreign jurisdiction. Assumes (i) full exchange of existing unitholders' partnership units and Class B common stock of the Company into Class A common stock of the Company, (ii) the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C Corporation in the U.S. at prevailing corporate rates and (iii) all deferred tax assets related to foreign operations are fully realizable.

_______________
(a)   The utilization rate for any given period is calculated by dividing the number of hours incurred by client service professionals who worked on client assignments (including internal projects for the Company) during the period by the total available working hours for all of such client service professionals during the same period, assuming a 40 hour work week, less paid holidays and vacation days. Utilization excludes client service professionals associated with certain property tax services due to the nature of the work performed and client service professionals from certain acquisitions prior to their transition to the Company's financial system.
(b) Average billing rate-per-hour is calculated by dividing revenue for the period by the number of hours worked on client assignments (including internal projects for the Company) during the same period. Financial Advisory revenue used to calculate rate-per-hour exclude revenue associated with certain property tax engagements. The average billing rate excludes certain hours from our acquisitions prior to their transition to the Company's financial system.
