Non-IFRS Measures

The non-International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) measures presented include assets under administration, assets under management, book value per diluted common share and figures that exclude significant items. Significant items include restructuring costs, amortization of intangible assets acquired in connection with a business combination, impairment of goodwill and other assets and acquisition-related expense items, which include costs recognized in relation to both prospective and completed acquisitions, as well as gains or losses related to business disposals including recognition of realized translation gains on the disposal of foreign operations. Book value per diluted common share is calculated as total common shareholders' equity adjusted for assumed proceeds from the exercise of options and warrants and conversion of convertible debentures divided by the number of diluted common shares outstanding including estimated amounts in respect of share issuance commitments including options, warrants and convertible debentures, and, commencing in Q1/14, adjusted for shares purchased under the NCIB and not yet cancelled and estimated forfeitures in respect of unvested share awards under share-based payment plans.

Management believes that these non-IFRS measures will allow for a better evaluation of the operating performance of the Company's business and facilitate meaningful comparison of results in the current period to those in prior periods and future periods. Figures that exclude significant items provide useful information by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the Company's core operating results. A limitation of utilizing these figures that exclude significant items is that the IFRS accounting effects of these items do in fact reflect the underlying financial results of the Company's business; thus, these effects should not be ignored in evaluating and analyzing the Company's financial results. Therefore, management believes that the Company's IFRS measures of financial performance and the respective non-IFRS measures should be considered together.

Fellow Shareholders:

The results of our third fiscal quarter reflect improving performance across global capital markets in our focus sectors.  Although developments in the UK and the US continue to evolve, and the longer term impact on the growth sectors of the global economy remains to be seen, we are encouraged by improving activity levels and our near term outlook is positive.

The outcome of the US federal election in November led to improved sentiment throughout financial markets, on the back of ongoing stabilization in economic data, an anticipated shift towards more expansionary fiscal policy, lower taxes and a new approach to regulation from the new administration. During the quarter, the S&P/TSX Composite finished 4.5% higher, including dividends, ending the 2016 calendar year up 21.1%, as higher oil and gold prices gave the Canadian Index a boost for the better part of 2016.

Throughout the quarter, businesses in the UK became more active as they began taking steps to move forward in light of a widely anticipated 'hard' Brexit, a development that has become increasingly likely subsequent to the end of the quarter.

In addition to improving activity levels across our operations, the benefits of the restructuring and alignment initiatives we announced one year ago are becoming more evident in our results.  We have continued to strengthen overall profitability and drive down expenses while activity levels improve across our global operations. Our back office and support teams have maintained a strong focus on improving firm wide efficiencies, optimizing office spaces, and ensuring that we have the necessary support and infrastructure to move forward with our strategy across all businesses and geographies.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2017, Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. generated total revenue of $208.1 million, an increase of 14.4% compared to the same quarter of last year. Our expenses for the quarter included approximately $6 million in non-recurring charges, primarily in connection with the costs of growing our Canadian wealth management platform, contractual compensation payments, and the rationalization of our office space in Toronto.  These costs have not been excluded for the purpose of calculating adjusted net income.

Global wealth management businesses continue to drive stability and growth

At the end of our third fiscal quarter, Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management had total assets under management and administration of $36.1 billion, a year-over year increase of 5.1%. Total revenue generated by our wealth management operations in the UK & Europe, Canada and Australia grew to $68.5 million, an increase of 10.8% compared to the same quarter of last year.

Our wealth management operation in the UK & Europe produced a record third quarter result. When measured in local currency, net income for the three month period was £4.9 million, an improvement of £1.7 million, or 53% compared to the same quarter of last year. The exceptional quality of our product offering in this region has helped this business to steadily improve net inflows and increase assets under management, which grew to £14.1 billion at the end of the quarter, up from £11.9 billion a year ago. I am also pleased to report that Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management was recently awarded the Citywealth IFC award for Investment Manager of the Year – Isle of Man. 

Assets in our Canadian wealth management business continued to improve, primarily due to the success of our recruiting strategy. At the end of the third fiscal quarter, total assets under administration in this business grew to approximately $12 billion dollars, an increase of 32.5% when compared to the same period last year. As most new assets were transitioned to our platform near the end of the fiscal period, associated revenues will be more fully reflected in future quarters. Our recruiting efforts in this business remain on track and we are attracting interest from growing numbers of high quality advisors. Looking ahead, we will continue to centre our offering on professional and highly personalized advice for clients, a differentiator that I am confident will position us to be the leading independent wealth management firm in Canada.

Looking ahead, we continue to focus on increasing scale in our Canadian and UK & Europe wealth management operations, in addition to driving growth in our Australian wealth management business, so that we can steadily improve recurring revenue contributions and further enhance stability for our shareholders. As we move forward on this strategy, we expect to incur moderate, non-recurring charges with respect to onboarding new advisors and clients.  In addition, we will continue to incur costs associated with our acquisition efforts in our UK and offshore businesses.

Profitable quarter for all global capital markets businesses

Activity levels in our global capital markets businesses continued to trend higher on more evidence of global growth tailwinds.  For the third fiscal quarter, our global capital markets business earned revenue of $137.3 million, with the largest contribution coming from our US operation.

Our US capital markets business delivered its strongest revenue quarter on record, driven primarily by our principal trading operation, which is on track to deliver a record fiscal year performance. Revenue generated from investment banking activities has also steadily improved over the fiscal year.  While it is too early to tell if the post-election optimism will translate into longer term conviction, we have continued to strengthen our competitive position in the US market by making disciplined investments to strengthen our capability in the verticals that support our core strengths globally.  Recently, we announced new senior investment banking hires to strengthen coverage in our Healthcare IT (HCIT), Consumer & Retail and Technology practices.

Calendar 2016 was a pivotal year for our Australian capital markets team, as they cemented Canaccord Genuity as a dominant mid-market competitor in the region. This operation has become significant enough that we now provide separate disclosure in in our supplementary financial information.  Despite a seasonally slower third quarter, revenues from capital markets activity in this business increased by 96% compared to the same period of last year, driven primarily by investment banking activity.  Year to date, this business has increased revenues by 118% compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2016. Our teams in the region have consistently demonstrated a commitment to delivering successful outcomes for clients, putting this business on track to deliver a record result for fiscal 2017.

On the back of a very challenging year, our capital markets business in the UK & Europe returned to marginal profitability during the third fiscal quarter. Notably, investment banking revenue in this business increased by 35.8% on a year-over-year basis and revenue generated from principal trading activity increased by 37.1%. Activity in our advisory business has steadily improved since the start of the fiscal year, and we continue to have good visibility on improving near term activity in this segment. We are also actively working to better align our new issue business in the region. While we are encouraged by the positive momentum in this region, we are also carefully reviewing all opportunities to ensure long term profitability in this business.

I am also pleased to report that subsequent to the end of the quarter, our Dubai operation successfully closed its first official advisory mandate, which was one of our most significant transactions of the fiscal year.  With the working association between Dubai and the UK, Dubai's operations will now be reported with the Canaccord Genuity UK and Europe business unit in our supplementary financial information.

New issue activity in our Canadian capital markets business continued to be softer during the third quarter, but on a year-over-year basis revenue generated from investment banking activities increased by 206%. Importantly, our recently formed Capital Markets Origination Group is driving stronger collaboration between our capital markets and wealth management teams in the region and we have recently completed a number of important early-stage financings for entrepreneurial clients, with whom we expect to form long-term partnerships as we support their growth objectives over time. We will continue to grow our origination capability, to firmly establish Canaccord Genuity as the leading independent investment bank in Canada.

Looking ahead, we are encouraged to see that broad market sentiment at the start of calendar 2017 is much more positive than it was in the same period last year. Investors are increasingly looking to put more money to work in the dynamic growth sectors of the global economy, and as a leading independent global investment bank with a focus on the mid-market, our differentiated service model positions us well to increase activity in our core focus sectors.

Committed to driving long term shareholder value creation

While our near term outlook for activity levels in our capital markets and wealth management operations is positive, we continue to anticipate periodic increases in volatility levels as the markets react to the specifics of regulatory and policy changes in the UK and the US. Against this backdrop, we remain committed to operating our business efficiently, and with a strong focus on delivering sustainable long term value for our clients and our shareholders.

Kind regards,

Dan Daviau
