  • Assets under management (discretionary and non-discretionary) were $25.8 billion (£15.3 billion) as at June 30, 2017, an increase of 5.0% from $24.5 billion (£14.7 billion) at the end of the previous quarter and an increase of 14.9% from $22.4 billion (£12.9 billion) at June 30, 2016 (4).

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, acquisition-related expense items, which include costs recognized in relation to both prospective and completed acquisitions,  gains or losses related to business disposals including recognition of realized translation gains on the disposal of foreign operations, as well as certain expense items, typically included in development costs, which are considered by management to reflect a singular charge of a non-operating nature. 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, as applicable, and 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:

During the first quarter of our 2018 fiscal year, continued uncertainty remained an important feature in global capital markets. In the UK & Europe, uncertainty over the political backdrop and the future path of monetary policy led to a volatile quarter despite positive returns amid stronger corporate earnings. US Equities advanced over the quarter and the S&P 500 recorded a total return of 3.1%, but activity levels were lower amid uncertainty that the US administration will be able to deliver on its fiscally expansive policies, and small and mid-cap equities underperformed large caps over the period. Canadian equity markets were impacted by concerns over energy and commodity markets, as well as housing market risks.

Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. earned total revenue of $199.8 million for the first fiscal quarter, a decrease of 3.1% compared to the same period a year ago. While the environment did weigh on the results this quarter, we continued to make excellent progress to deliver on our strategy of increasing contributions from our global wealth management operations and focusing on our initiatives to improve stability across our operations.

Executing on our strategy: Growing wealth management to stabilize headline performance

At the end of our first fiscal quarter, assets under management and administration in our global wealth management businesses grew to $39.3 billion, an improvement of 19.2% compared to one year ago.

Our wealth management business in the UK & Europe delivered another strong quarterly performance, with a year-over-year revenue increase of 14.4%. Excluding significant items, this business delivered $8.5 million of net income and a pre-tax profit margin of 22.2%. At the end of the first quarter, assets under management totalled $25.8 billion, a year-over-year increase of 14.9%. When measured in local currency, assets under management increased by 18.9% compared to a year ago.

In early July, we announced that this division has agreed to acquire Hargreave Hale, a leading independent UK-based investment and wealth management business. With this development, Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management is poised to become a top 10 wealth management business in the region by assets, with even stronger growth potential from a base of £22 billion. The acquisition is subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed prior to the end of our third fiscal quarter. As a result of this development, the Company recorded $2.2 million of acquisition related costs.  Along with the senior management of Hargreave Hale, we are confident that bringing together our shared strengths and complementary differences will allow us to unlock some larger opportunities for both businesses and deliver enhanced value for our clients and shareholders and we expect that the business combination will be immediately accretive.

Our Canadian wealth management business also delivered a significant improvement in profitability for the first fiscal quarter. Excluding significant items, this business contributed net income of $3.2 million, or a pre-tax profit margin improvement of 7.4 percentage points compared to the first quarter of our last fiscal year. This improvement was driven primarily by our efforts to increase scale in this business, as revenues generated from the new assets that we have added to our platform are being more wholly reflected in our results. Excluding significant items, total expenses as a percentage of revenue in this business decreased by 7.7 percentage points, a measure we expect to continually improve as we achieve greater scale in this operation. At the end of the first fiscal quarter, assets under administration and management in our Canadian wealth management business were $12.7 billion, an improvement of 29.1% compared to the same period last year. Notably, discretionary assets under management in this business have increased by 108.8% compared to the same period last year.  Our recruiting efforts in this business remain on track and we continue to attract interest from a solid pipeline of high quality investment advisors.

Global Capital Markets

The robust market backdrop that characterized our fourth fiscal quarter was replaced with more subdued activity levels in global capital markets for our first quarter of fiscal 2018. That said, we supported our clients when market opportunities presented. During the first quarter of fiscal 2018, Canaccord Genuity participated in 98 investment banking transactions to raise proceeds of $12.7 billion for growth companies.

Revenue for our global capital markets business was $121.8 million, a decrease of 13.4% compared to the first quarter of our last fiscal year, primarily on lower advisory fees revenue. While still below historic levels, we experienced a modest improvement in revenue generated from investment banking activities from our operations in Canada, US and the UK & Europe. In Canada, investment banking revenue increased by 28.7% compared to the first quarter of last year. Investment banking revenues in our US and our UK, Europe & Dubai operations increased by 16.8% and 18.4% respectively. These gains were offset by a decrease in Australia, the first period of subdued activity following two years of strong gains, as investors transitioned away from small and mid-cap stocks.

While our Canadian capital markets business achieved profitability during the quarter, the year-over-year decline in advisory revenues was most pronounced for this business, largely due to an exceptionally strong quarter in the prior year. Global trading revenue was down by $1.7 million compared to the same quarter last year, primarily due to lower activity in our UK, Europe & Dubai operation. This result was partially offset by our US trading operation, which delivered 5.1% higher revenue on a year-over-year basis, a testament to this team's efforts to attract increased client flows and grow our specialty trading capability, despite reduced market activity arising from generally lower market volatility.

While fiscal and policy regulation remains uncertain, ample liquidity in emerging and developed markets gives us confidence in an improving backdrop for new listings and equity capital markets activities throughout the coming quarters.  Additionally, we expect that low volatility should support a healthy M&A pipeline.

Innovating to support a vibrant marketplace for growth companies

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Canaccord Genuity Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) in Canada was established, for which we successfully raised $30 million in funding. This development allows us to support high-potential growth companies gain access to investment capital and a method by which to go public, while simultaneously offering access to a broadly desirable investment vehicle to our network of retail investors across Canada. By leveraging our core capability as a leader in raising capital for growth companies, we are very well positioned to identify compelling investment opportunities, as we contribute to a vibrant marketplace for growth companies in Canada. I look forward to updating you on our progress when we introduce a qualifying acquisition.

Significant opportunities to expand long-term capability for our business, in any market environment

We have consistently noted that variability of results is an inevitable feature of our global capital markets business, and therefore we focus on operating our business for long-term success and stability. 

Since we began our restructuring and cost reduction activities in the third quarter of fiscal 2016, we have continued to manage our expenses carefully throughout various market backdrops and we have improved operational efficiencies across many areas of our business. We continue to be well capitalized for investment in our key priorities, with working capital of $467.5 million and cash & cash equivalents of $521.7 million at June 30. I am also pleased to report that our Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend of $0.01 per share for the quarter.

To date, I am pleased with the steady progress we are making to adjust our business mix and strengthen our market position across our operations. While we remain cautious in the near term, we are encouraged by indications of an improving global economy, with potential for broader and more sustainable growth than we have seen in recent years. The many talented professionals that we have recruited and retained across our global capital markets operations have remained active throughout the summer months, working hard to strengthen our market position so that we can deliver for our clients when market conditions are favourable. In our wealth management operations, we continue to focus on growing assets under management and increasing contributions from fee-based accounts, which will improve net income contributions from this segment and continue to enhance our longer-term earnings stability.

Kind regards,

Dan Daviau
President & CEO
