ARTISAN PARTNERS ASSET MANAGEMENT INC.
Notes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements
(U.S. currencies in thousands, except per share or per unit amounts and as otherwise indicated)
Note 1. Nature of Business and Organization
Nature of Business
Artisan Partners Asset Management Inc. (“APAM” or “Artisan”) is an investment management firm focused on providing high-value added, active investment strategies to sophisticated clients globally. Artisan has seven autonomous investment teams that manage a broad range of U.S., non-U.S. and global investment strategies.
Strategies are offered through multiple investment vehicles to accommodate a broad range of client mandates. Artisan offers its investment management services primarily to institutions and through intermediaries that operate with institutional-like decision-making processes and have long-term investment horizons.
Organization
On March 12, 2013, APAM completed its initial public offering (the “IPO”). APAM was formed for the purpose of becoming the general partner of Artisan Partners Holdings LP (“Artisan Partners Holdings” or “Holdings”) in connection with the IPO. Holdings is a holding company for the investment management business conducted under the name “Artisan Partners”. The reorganization (“IPO Reorganization”) established the necessary corporate structure to complete the IPO while at the same time preserving the ability of the firm to conduct operations through Holdings and its subsidiaries.
As the sole general partner, APAM controls the business and affairs of Holdings. As a result, APAM consolidates Holdings’ financial statements and records a noncontrolling interest for the equity interests in Holdings held by the limited partners of Holdings. At June 30, 2016, APAM held approximately 56% of the equity ownership interest in Holdings.
APAM has been allocated a part of Artisan Partners Holdings’ net income since March 12, 2013, when it became Holdings’ general partner. APAM and its subsidiaries are hereafter referred to collectively as “Artisan” or the “Company”.

Holdings Unit Exchanges

During the six months ended June 30, 2016, certain limited partners of Artisan Partners Holdings exchanged common units (along with a corresponding number of shares of Class B or C common stock of APAM) for shares of Class A common stock (the “Holdings Common Unit Exchanges”). The following common units were exchanged for APAM Class A common stock during the six months ended June 30, 2016:
 
Total Common Units Exchanged
Class A Common Units
Class B Common Units
Class E Common Units
Common units exchanged on March 3, 2016
764,971


754,971

10,000

Common units exchanged on May 3, 2016
761,673


751,673

10,000

Total Units Exchanged in 2016
1,526,644


1,506,644

20,000


The corresponding shares of APAM Class B and Class C common stock were immediately canceled upon exchange. The Holdings Common Unit Exchanges increased APAM’s equity ownership interest in Holdings and resulted in a combined increase to deferred tax assets of approximately $27.8 million and an increase in amounts payable under the tax receivable agreements of approximately $23.6 million.
Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of presentation
The accompanying financial statements are unaudited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of such consolidated financial statements have been included. Such interim results are not necessarily indicative of full year results.
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial reporting and accordingly they do not include all of the information and footnotes required in the annual consolidated financial statements and accompanying footnotes. The year-end condensed balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. As a result, the interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements included in APAM’s latest annual report on Form 10-K.

The accompanying financial statements were prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and related rules and regulations of the SEC. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates or assumptions that affect the reported amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Actual results could differ from these estimates or assumptions.
Principles of consolidation
Artisan’s policy is to consolidate all subsidiaries or other entities in which it has a controlling financial interest. The consolidation guidance requires an analysis to determine if an entity should be evaluated for consolidation using the voting interest entity (“VOE”) model or the variable interest entity (“VIE”) model. Under the VOE model, controlling financial interest is generally defined as a majority ownership of voting interests. Under the VIE model, controlling financial interest is defined as the power to direct activities that most significantly impact the economic performance of the entity and the right to receive potentially significant benefits or the obligation to absorb potentially significant losses. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of APAM and all subsidiaries or other entities in which APAM has a direct or indirect controlling financial interest. All material intercompany balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Artisan serves as the investment adviser for Artisan Partners Funds, Inc. (“Artisan Funds”), a family of mutual funds registered with the SEC under the Investment Company Act of 1940, and Artisan Partners Global Funds plc (“Artisan Global Funds”), a family of Ireland-based UCITS. Artisan Funds and Artisan Global Funds are corporate entities the business and affairs of which are managed by their respective boards of directors. The shareholders of the funds retain all voting rights, including the right to elect and reelect members of their respective boards of directors. As a result, each of these entities is a VOE and is evaluated for consolidation under the VOE model.
The Company makes initial seed investments in sponsored investment portfolios, including series of Artisan Funds and Artisan Global Funds, at the portfolio’s formation, which are made on the same terms as are available to other investors. If the seed investment results in a controlling financial interest, APAM consolidates the fund, and the underlying individual securities are accounted for as trading securities. Seed investments in which the Company does not have a controlling financial interest are classified as available-for-sale investments. As of June 30, 2016, APAM does not have a controlling financial interest in any sponsored investment portfolio or series of Artisan Funds or Artisan Global Funds and therefore does not consolidate these entities.

Recent accounting pronouncements
Accounting standards adopted as of January 1, 2016
In February 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2015-02, Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis. The ASU modified existing consolidation guidance for determining whether certain legal entities should be consolidated. The ASU eliminated the deferral under ASU 2010-10, Amendments for Certain Investment Funds, and, as a result, the Company must apply the new guidance to all entities, including investment companies. The presumption that a general partner controls a limited partnership was eliminated. In addition, fees paid to decision makers that meet certain conditions no longer cause the decision makers to consolidate VIEs, in certain instances. The new guidance was effective on January 1, 2016, and did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the periods presented.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which requires debt issuance costs to be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the note liability, rather than presented as an asset. The new guidance was effective on January 1, 2016, and requires a retrospective approach to adoption. At June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had approximately $0.6 million and $0.7 million, respectively, of debt issuance costs that met the criteria of this amendment and are now presented as a reduction to Borrowings in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The ASU is intended to simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including income tax consequences, classification on the statement of cash flows, and accounting for the forfeiture of share-based awards. The updated guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted in any interim period; if early adoption is elected, the entity must adopt all of the amendments in the same reporting period and reflect any adjustments as of the beginning of the fiscal year. The Company adopted the guidance as of January 1, 2016. As part of the guidance, all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies (including tax benefits of dividends on share-based payment awards) are now recognized as income tax expense or benefit in the income statement. Previously, excess tax benefits were recognized in additional paid-in-capital. The amendment also requires excess tax benefits to be classified along with other income tax cash flows as an operating activity. The amendments related to the recognition of excess tax benefits and presentation of excess tax benefits in the statement of cash flows are applied prospectively as of January 1, 2016.


7


ASU 2016-09 also allows entities to elect as an accounting policy either to continue to estimate the total number of awards for which the requisite service period will not be rendered (as previously required) or to account for forfeitures when they occur. The Company has elected to account for forfeitures when they occur, since that approach is expected to better reflect periodic compensation costs. The change in accounting for forfeitures is applied using a modified retrospective transition method by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to equity. As of January 1, 2016, retained earnings decreased by $0.4 million and additional paid-in-capital increased by $0.4 million to reflect the change in accounting principle.
Accounting standards not yet adopted
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which supersedes existing accounting standards for revenue recognition and creates a single framework. The new guidance will be effective on January 1, 2018 with early adoption permitted as of January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating its transition method and the potential impact on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which requires all equity investments to be measured at fair value with changes in the fair value recognized through net income. ASU 2016-01 will be effective on January 1, 2018 and will result in a cumulative-effect adjustment to the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition upon adoption. After adoption, the Company’s unrealized gains (losses) on available-for-sale investment securities will be recognized through net income, which will be a change from the current treatment of recognition in other comprehensive income (loss).
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, which introduces a lessee model that brings most leases on the balance sheet. The new guidance will be effective on January 1, 2019 and will require a modified retrospective approach to adoption. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

Artisan’s investments in mutual funds consist of investments in shares of Artisan Funds and Artisan Global Funds and are considered to be available-for-sale securities. As a result, unrealized gains (losses) are recorded to other comprehensive income (loss).
As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the total fair value of investments in an unrealized loss position was $6.8 million and $4.4 million, respectively. The $266 thousand unrealized losses on available-for-sale securities are considered temporary, based on the severity and duration of the unrealized losses. No impairment losses were recorded on these available-for-sale securities.
Note 4. Fair Value Measurements
The table below presents information about Artisan’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value and the valuation techniques Artisan utilized to determine such fair value.
In accordance with ASC 820, fair value is defined as the price that Artisan would receive upon selling an investment in an orderly transaction to an independent buyer in the principal or most advantageous market for the investment. The following three-tier fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value:
Level 1 – Observable inputs such as quoted (unadjusted) market prices in active markets for identical securities.
Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including but not limited to quoted prices for similar instruments, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).
Level 3—Significant unobservable inputs (including Artisan’s own assumptions in determining fair value).

The following provides the hierarchy of inputs used to derive fair value of Artisan’s assets and liabilities that are financial instruments as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015:

Fair values determined based on Level 1 inputs utilize quoted market prices for identical assets. Level 1 assets generally consist of money market funds, marketable open-end mutual funds and UCITS funds. There were no Level 2 or Level 3 assets or liabilities recorded at fair value as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
Artisan’s policy is to recognize transfers in and transfers out of the valuation levels as of the beginning of the reporting period. There were no transfers between Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 securities during the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.
Note 5. Borrowings

The inputs are categorized as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy, as defined in Note 4, “Fair Value Measurements”.
Interest expense incurred on the unsecured notes and revolving credit agreement was $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, and $5.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.

Note 6. Noncontrolling interest - Holdings
Holdings is the predecessor of APAM for accounting purposes, and its consolidated financial statements are Artisan’s historical financial statements for periods prior to March 12, 2013, the date on which APAM became the general partner (“GP”) of Holdings. As of June 30, 2016, APAM held approximately 56% of the equity ownership interests in Holdings.
Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests - Artisan Partners Holdings in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations represents the portion of earnings attributable to the equity ownership interests in Holdings held by the limited partners of Holdings.
In order to maintain the one-to-one correspondence of the number of Holdings partnership units and APAM common shares, Holdings will issue one GP unit to APAM for each share of Class A common stock APAM issues. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, APAM’s equity ownership interest in Holdings increased as a result of the following transactions:

(1) The impact of the transaction on APAM’s ownership percentage was less than 1%.
Since APAM continues to have a controlling interest in Holdings, changes in ownership of Holdings are accounted for as equity transactions. Additional paid-in capital and Noncontrolling interest - Artisan Partners Holdings in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition are adjusted to reallocate Holdings’ historical equity to reflect the change in APAM’s ownership of Holdings.
The reallocation of equity had the following impact on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Condition:

(1) The Company’s employees to whom Artisan has granted equity have entered into a stockholders agreement with respect to all shares of APAM common stock they have acquired from the Company and any shares they may acquire from the Company in the future, pursuant to which they granted an irrevocable voting proxy to a Stockholders Committee. As of June 30, 2016, Artisan’s employees held 3,795,914 restricted shares of Class A common stock subject to the agreement and all 16,820,578 outstanding shares of Class B common stock.
APAM is dependent on cash generated by Holdings to fund any dividends. Generally, Holdings will make distributions to all of its partners, including APAM, based on the proportionate ownership each holds in Holdings. APAM will fund dividends to its stockholders from its proportionate share of those distributions after provision for its taxes and other obligations. APAM declared and paid the following dividends per share during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015:

Each Class A, Class B, Class D and Class E common unit of Holdings (together with the corresponding share of Class B or Class C common stock) is exchangeable for one share of Class A common stock. The corresponding shares of Class B and Class C common stock are immediately canceled upon any such exchange.
Upon termination of employment with Artisan, an employee-partner’s unvested Class B common units are forfeited. Generally, the employee-partner’s vested Class B common units are exchanged for Class E common units; the employee-partner’s shares of Class B common stock are canceled; and APAM issues the former employee-partner a number of shares of Class C common stock equal to the former employee-partner’s number of Class E common units. Class E common units are exchangeable for Class A common stock subject to the same restrictions and limitations on exchange applicable to the other common units of Holdings.

Artisan Partners Holdings - Partners’ Equity
Holdings makes distributions of its net income to the holders of its partnership units for income taxes as required under the terms of the partnership agreement and also makes additional distributions under the terms of the partnership agreement. The distributions are recorded in the financial statements on the declaration date, or on the payment date in lieu of a declaration date. Holdings’ partnership distributions for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, were as follows:

(1) Excluding restricted share-based award compensation expense
Incentive compensation
Cash incentive compensation paid to members of Artisan’s portfolio management teams and members of its distribution teams is generally based on formulas that are tied directly to revenues. These payments are made in the quarter following the quarter in which the incentive was earned with the exception of fourth quarter payments which are paid in the fourth quarter of the year. Cash incentive compensation paid to most other employees is discretionary and subjectively determined based on individual performance and Artisan’s overall results during the applicable year and has historically been paid in the fourth quarter of the year. The cash incentive compensation earned by executive officers for the year ended December 31, 2015, was paid in the three months ended March 31, 2016.
Restricted share-based awards
Artisan has registered 14,000,000 shares of Class A common stock for issuance under the 2013 Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Plan”). Pursuant to the Plan, APAM has granted a combination of restricted stock awards and restricted stock units (collectively referred to as “restricted share-based awards”) of Class A common stock to employees. The restricted share-based awards generally vest on a pro rata basis over five years. Certain share-based awards will vest upon a combination of both (1) pro-rata annual time vesting and (2) qualifying retirement (as defined in the award agreements).

Unvested awards are subject to forfeiture upon termination of employment. Grantees receiving the awards are entitled to dividends on unvested and vested shares and units. As of June 30, 2016, 9,234,275 shares of Class A common stock were reserved and available for issuance under the Plan.
During the six months ended June 30, 2016, Artisan granted 1,082,035 restricted stock awards and 20,625 restricted stock units of Class A common stock to employees of the Company. Total compensation expense associated with the 2016 grants is expected to be approximately $33.6 million. Compensation expense related to the restricted share-based awards is recognized based on the estimated grant date fair value on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the award. The initial requisite service period is generally five years for restricted share-based awards.

12


As of January 1, 2016, the Company’s accounting policy is to record the impact of forfeitures when they occur. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, compensation expense was reversed for 2,710 forfeited restricted stock awards.
The following table summarizes the restricted share-based award activity for the six months ended June 30, 2016:

Compensation expense recognized related to the restricted share-based awards was $10.8 million and $9.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and $21.2 million and $17.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The unrecognized compensation expense for the unvested awards as of June 30, 2016 was $134.3 million with a weighted average recognition period of 3.5 years remaining. The initial requisite service period and remaining weighted average recognition period for all types of restricted share-based awards are substantially equivalent.
During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company withheld a total of 12,862 restricted shares as a result of net share settlements to satisfy employee tax withholding obligations. The Company paid $0.3 million in employee tax withholding obligations related to employee share transactions. These net share settlements had the effect of shares repurchased and retired by the Company, as they reduced the number of shares outstanding.
Pre-offering related compensation - share-based awards
Historical Class B share-based awards
Holdings historically granted Class B share-based awards to certain employees. These awards vested over a period of five years. Prior to the IPO, all vested Class B awards were subject to mandatory redemption on termination of employment for any reason and were reflected as liabilities measured at fair value; unvested Class B awards were forfeited on termination of employment.
The vested Class B liability awards of a terminated employee were historically redeemed in cash in annual installments, generally over the five years following termination of employment. The change in value of Class B liability awards and distributions to Class B limited partners were treated as compensation expense.
Historical redemption of Class B awards
Holdings historically redeemed the Class B awards of partners whose employment was terminated. The redemption value of the awards was determined in accordance with the terms of the grant agreement pursuant to which the award was granted. The remaining redemption payment liability for Class B awards of partners whose services to Holdings terminated prior to the IPO was $5.0 million and $5.6 million as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. Payments of $0.6 million and $4.2 million were made during the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
Modification of Class B awards
As a part of the IPO Reorganization, the Class B grant agreements were amended to eliminate the cash redemption feature. The amendment was considered a modification under ASC 718 and the Class B awards have been classified as equity awards since such modification. Compensation expense is recorded for unvested Class B awards on a straight-line basis over the remaining vesting period.
The following table summarizes the activity related to unvested Class B awards for the six months ended June 30, 2016:

The unrecognized compensation expense for the unvested Class B awards as of June 30, 2016 was $28.5 million with a weighted average recognition period of 1.0 years remaining.
Note 9. Income Taxes and Related Payments
APAM is subject to U.S. federal, state and local income taxation on APAM’s allocable portion of Holdings’ income. APAM’s effective income tax rate was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to a rate benefit attributable to the fact that, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, approximately 46% of Artisan Partners Holdings’ taxable earnings were attributable to other partners and not subject to corporate-level taxes. This favorable impact is partially offset by the impact of certain permanent items, primarily attributable to pre-IPO share-based compensation expenses, that are not deductible for tax purposes. These factors are expected to continue to impact the effective tax rate for future years, although as APAM's equity ownership in Holdings increases, the effective tax rate will likewise increase as more income will be subject to corporate-level taxes. The effective tax rate will also be affected by the discrete tax impact of future dividends on unvested share-based awards and future vesting of restricted share-based awards based on fluctuations in the trading price of APAM’s Class A common stock between the grant date and vesting date.

In connection with the IPO, APAM entered into two tax receivable agreements (“TRAs”). The first TRA generally provides for the payment by APAM to a private equity fund (the “Pre-H&F Corp Merger Shareholder”) of 85% of the applicable cash savings, if any, of U.S. federal, state and local income taxes that APAM actually realizes (or is deemed to realize in certain circumstances) as a result of (i) the tax attributes of the preferred units APAM acquired in the merger of a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Pre-H&F Corp Merger Shareholder into APAM in March 2013, (ii) net operating losses available as a result of the merger and (iii) tax benefits related to imputed interest.
The second TRA generally provides for the payment by APAM to current or former limited partners of Holdings of 85% of the applicable cash savings, if any, of U.S. federal, state and local income taxes that APAM actually realizes (or is deemed to realize in certain circumstances) as a result of (i) certain tax attributes of their partnership units sold to APAM or exchanged (for shares of Class A common stock, convertible preferred stock or other consideration) and that are created as a result of such sales or exchanges and payments under the TRAs and (ii) tax benefits related to imputed interest. Under both agreements, APAM generally will retain the benefit of the remaining 15% of the applicable tax savings.
For purposes of the TRAs, cash savings of income taxes are calculated by comparing APAM’s actual income tax liability to the amount it would have been required to pay had it not been able to utilize any of the tax benefits subject to the TRAs, unless certain assumptions apply. The TRAs will continue in effect until all such tax benefits have been utilized or expired, unless APAM exercises its right to terminate the agreements or payments under the agreements are accelerated in the event that APAM materially breaches any of its material obligations under the agreements.
The actual increase in tax basis, as well as the amount and timing of any payments under these agreements, will vary depending upon a number of factors, including the timing of sales or exchanges by the holders of limited partnership units, the price of the Class A common stock at the time of such sales or exchanges, whether such sales or exchanges are taxable, the amount and timing of the taxable income APAM generates in the future and the tax rate then applicable and the portion of APAM’s payments under the TRAs constituting imputed interest or depreciable basis or amortizable basis.

14


Payments under the TRAs, if any, will be made pro rata among all TRA counterparties entitled to payments on an annual basis to the extent APAM has sufficient taxable income to utilize the increased depreciation and amortization charges. Artisan expects to make one or more payments under the TRAs, to the extent they are required, prior to or within 125 days after APAM’s U.S. federal income tax return is filed for each fiscal year. Interest on the TRA payments will accrue at a rate equal to one-year LIBOR plus 100 basis points from the due date (without extension) of such tax return until such payments are made.
Amounts payable under tax receivable agreements are estimates which may be impacted by factors, including but not limited to, expected tax rates, projected taxable income, and projected ownership levels and are subject to change. Changes in the estimates of amounts payable under tax receivable agreements are recorded as non-operating income (loss) in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
Transactions during the six months ended June 30, 2016 resulted in the following impact to deferred tax assets and amounts payable under the TRAs:

(3) Artisan assessed whether the deferred tax assets would be realizable and determined based on its history of taxable income that the benefits would more likely than not be realized. Accordingly, no valuation allowance is required.
Accounting standards establish a minimum threshold for recognizing, and a system for measuring, the benefits of income tax return positions in financial statements. There were no uncertain tax positions recorded as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
In the normal course of business, Artisan is subject to examination by federal and certain state, local and foreign tax regulators. As of June 30, 2016, U.S. federal income tax returns for the years 2013 through 2015 are open and therefore subject to examination. State and local tax returns are generally subject to examination from 2012 to 2014. Foreign tax returns are generally subject to examination from 2012 to 2015.

Note 11. Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed under the two-class method by dividing income available to Class A common stockholders by the weighted average number of Class A common shares outstanding during the period. Unvested restricted share-based awards are excluded from the number of Class A common shares outstanding for the basic earnings per share calculation because the shares have not yet been earned by the employees. Income available to Class A common stockholders is computed by reducing net income attributable to APAM by earnings (distributed and undistributed) allocated to participating securities, according to their respective rights to participate in those earnings. Unvested share-based awards are participating securities because the awards include non-forfeitable dividend rights during the vesting period. Class B and Class C common shares do not share in profits of APAM and therefore are not reflected in the calculations.
The computation of basic and diluted earnings per share under the two-class method for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were as follows:

Allocation to participating securities generally represents dividends paid to holders of unvested restricted share-based awards. There were no dilutive securities outstanding during the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2016. The Holdings limited partnership units are anti-dilutive primarily due to the impact of public company expenses and unrecognized share-based compensation expense. Unvested share-based awards are also anti-dilutive because they are considered participating securities.

Note 12. Indemnifications
In the normal course of business, APAM enters into agreements that include indemnities in favor of third parties. Holdings has also agreed to indemnify APAM as its general partner, Artisan Investment Corporation (“AIC”) as its former general partner, the directors and officers of APAM, the directors and officers of AIC as its former general partner, the members of its former Advisory Committee, and its partners, directors, officers, employees and agents. Holdings’ subsidiaries may also have similar agreements to indemnify their respective general partner(s), directors, officers, directors and officers of their general partner(s), partners, members, employees, and agents. The Company’s maximum exposure under these arrangements is unknown, as this would involve future claims that may be made against us that have not yet occurred. APAM maintains insurance policies that may provide coverage against certain claims under these indemnities.
Note 13. Related Party Transactions
The current named executive officers of APAM and certain members of APAM’s board (or their affiliates) are limited partners of Holdings. As a result, certain transactions (such as TRA payments) between Artisan and the limited partners of Holdings are considered to be related party transactions with respect to these persons.
Affiliate transactions—Artisan Funds     
Artisan has an agreement to serve as the investment adviser to Artisan Funds, with which certain Artisan employees are affiliated. Under the terms of the agreement, which generally is reviewed and continued by the board of directors of Artisan Funds annually, a fee is paid to Artisan based on an annual percentage of the average daily net assets of each Artisan Fund ranging from 0.625% to 1.25%. Artisan generally collects revenues related to these services on the last business day of each month and records them in Management Fees in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. Artisan has contractually agreed to waive its management fees or reimburse for expenses incurred to the extent necessary to limit annualized ordinary operating expenses incurred by certain of the Artisan Funds to not more than a fixed percentage (ranging from 0.88% to 1.50%) of a Fund’s average daily net assets. In addition, Artisan may voluntarily waive fees or reimburse any of the Artisan Funds for other expenses. The officers and a director of Artisan Funds who are affiliated with Artisan receive no compensation from the funds.
Fees for managing the Funds and amounts waived or reimbursed by Artisan for fees and expenses (including management fees) are as follows:

Under the terms of these agreements, a fee is paid based on an annual percentage of the average daily net assets of each fund ranging from 0.75% to 1.75%. Artisan reimburses each sub-fund of Artisan Global Funds to the extent that sub-fund’s expenses, not including Artisan’s fee, exceed certain levels, which range from 0.10% to 0.20%. In addition, Artisan may voluntarily waive fees or reimburse any of the Artisan Global Funds for other expenses. The directors of Artisan Global Funds who are affiliated with Artisan receive no compensation from the funds. Accounts receivable included $1.2 million and $1.3 million due from Artisan Global Funds as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Overview
We are an investment management firm focused on providing high-value added, active investment strategies to sophisticated clients globally. Our operations are conducted through Artisan Partners Holdings and its subsidiaries. We derive essentially all of our revenues from investment management fees. Nearly all our fees are based on a specified percentage of clients’ average assets under our management. We operate our business in a single segment.
We have seven autonomous investment teams that manage a broad range of U.S., non-U.S., and global investment strategies. Strategies are offered through multiple investment vehicles to accommodate a broad range of client mandates.
Assets Under Management

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, global equity markets were volatile and generated mixed returns. Our AUM was $95.0 billion at June 30, 2016, a decrease of $2.0 billion, or 2.1%, compared to $97.0 billion at March 31, 2016, as a result of $2.3 billion of net client cash outflows partially offset by $0.3 billion in market appreciation and net transfers. Compared to June 30, 2015, AUM decreased $14.2 billion, or 13.0%, due to $7.2 billion of market depreciation and $7.0 billion in net client cash outflows.

Business and Financial Highlights

Year to date, the Value Equity strategy has returned over 14% gross of fees. The Mid-Cap Value, Emerging Markets, High Income and Developing World strategies have each returned in excess of 7.6% gross of fees.
At quarter-end, the 5-year average annual returns of 8 of our 11 investment strategies with 5-year track records exceeded the returns of the applicable benchmark. Our Global Opportunities and Global Equity strategies, both of which are open to new clients and investors and have realizable capacity, beat their benchmarks on a gross basis by over 450 and 500 basis points, respectively, over the 5-year period.
At quarter-end, the 10-year average annual returns of 7 of our 8 investment strategies with 10-year track records exceeded the returns of the applicable benchmark.
During the second quarter, we ceased managing assets in the U.S. Small-Cap Value strategy, and reorganized Artisan Small Cap Value Fund into Artisan Mid Cap Value Fund. This resulted in the transfer of approximately $180 million of assets from Artisan Small Cap Value Fund to Artisan Mid Cap Value Fund, as well as net client cash outflows of $518 million.
Firm-wide net outflows of $2.3 billion during the second quarter were primarily driven by net outflows from the strategies managed by our U.S. Value team, which experienced a total of $1.8 billion of net outflows during the quarter.
During the second quarter, our High Income strategy raised $138 million in net client cash flows; our Developing World strategy raised $129 million in net client cash flows; and our Global Opportunities strategy raised $201 million in net client cash flows. All three strategies are open to new clients and investors. Our Global Value strategy, which we re-opened to investors in our pooled vehicles, raised $200 million in net client cash flows.
Revenues were $355.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, a 14% decrease from revenues of $415.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015.
Operating margin was 32.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to 35.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Adjusted operating margin was 36.2% for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to 40.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2015.
Net income attributable to APAM was $34.6 million, or $0.74 per basic and diluted share, for six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $43.3 million, or $0.95 per basic and diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Adjusted net income per adjusted share was $1.04 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $1.39 for the six months ended June 30, 2015.

Organizational Structure
Organizational Structure
On March 12, 2013, Artisan Partners Asset Management Inc. (“APAM”) and the intermediary holding company through which APAM conducts its operations, Artisan Partners Holdings LP (“Holdings”), completed a series of transactions (“the IPO Reorganization”) to reorganize their capital structures in connection with the initial public offering (“IPO”) of APAM’s Class A common stock. The IPO Reorganization and IPO were completed on March 12, 2013. The IPO Reorganization was designed to create a capital structure that preserves our ability to conduct our business through Holdings, while permitting us to raise additional capital and provide access to liquidity through a public company. The IPO Reorganization is described in greater detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, filed with the SEC on February 25, 2016.

19


Our employees and other limited partners of Holdings held approximately 44% of the equity interests in Holdings as of June 30, 2016. As a result, our post-IPO results reflect that significant noncontrolling interest.
2016 Unit Exchanges
During the six months ended June 30, 2016, certain limited partners of Holdings exchanged 1,526,644 common units (along with a corresponding number of shares of Class B or Class C common stock of APAM) for 1,526,644 shares of Class A common stock. In connection with the exchanges, APAM received 1,526,644 GP units of Holdings.
APAM’s equity ownership interest in Holdings increased from 54% at December 31, 2015 to 56% at June 30, 2016, as a result of these exchanges and other equity transactions during the period.
Tax Impact of IPO Reorganization
In connection with the IPO, APAM entered into two tax receivable agreements (“TRAs”). The first TRA generally provides for the payment by APAM to a private equity fund (the “Pre-H&F Corp Merger Shareholder”) of 85% of the applicable cash savings, if any, of U.S. federal, state and local income taxes that APAM actually realizes (or is deemed to realize in certain circumstances) as a result of (i) the tax attributes of the preferred units APAM acquired in the merger of a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Pre-H&F Corp Merger Shareholder into APAM in March 2013, (ii) net operating losses available as a result of the merger and (iii) tax benefits related to imputed interest.
The second TRA generally provides for the payment by APAM to current or former limited partners of Holdings of 85% of the applicable cash savings, if any, of U.S. federal, state and local income taxes that APAM actually realizes (or is deemed to realize in certain circumstances) as a result of (i) certain tax attributes of their partnership units sold to us or exchanged (for shares of Class A common stock, convertible preferred stock or other consideration) and that are created as a result of such sales or exchanges and payments under the TRAs and (ii) tax benefits related to imputed interest. Under both agreements, APAM generally will retain the benefit of the remaining 15% of the applicable tax savings.
Transactions during the six months ended June 30, 2016, resulted in the following impact to deferred tax assets and amounts payable under the TRAs:

(1) We compute average assets under management by averaging day-end assets under management for the applicable period.
(2) We compute our weighted average fee by dividing annualized investment management fees by average assets under management for the applicable period.
(3) Adjusted measures are non-GAAP measures and are explained and reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in “Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Information” below.
Because we earn investment management fees based primarily on the value of the assets we manage across a reporting period, we believe that average assets under management for a period is a better metric for understanding changes in our revenues than period end assets under management.

The weighted average fee represents annualized investment management fees as a percentage of average assets under management for the applicable period. We have historically been disciplined about maintaining our rates of fees. Over time, industry-wide fee pressure could cause us to reduce our fees.
Assets Under Management and Investment Performance
Changes to our operating results from one period to another are primarily caused by changes in the amount of our assets under management. Changes in the relative composition of our assets under management among our investment strategies and vehicles and the effective fee rates on our products also impact our operating results.

The amount and composition of our assets under management are, and will continue to be, influenced by a variety of factors including, among others:
investment performance, including fluctuations in both the financial markets and foreign currency exchange rates and the quality of our investment decisions;
flows of client assets into and out of our various strategies and investment vehicles;
our decision to close strategies or limit the growth of assets in a strategy or a vehicle when we believe it is in the best interest of our clients, as well as our decision to re-open strategies, in part or entirely;
our ability to attract and retain qualified investment, management, and marketing and client service professionals;
industry trends towards products or strategies that we do not offer;
competitive conditions in the investment management and broader financial services sectors; and
investor sentiment and confidence.

We believe that growth in AUM in an investment strategy requires the availability of attractive investment opportunities relative to the amount of AUM in the strategy at a time when the strategy has a competitive performance track record and there is stable or growing client demand for the strategy or asset class. When we believe that each of these factors is present with respect to an investment strategy, we say we have “realizable capacity” in that strategy. We discuss realizable capacity in general, rather than discussing the capacity of our strategies in precise dollar amounts, because capacity is affected by a number of factors, evolves over time, and is subject to change. We are confident that we have sufficient realizable capacity to continue to thoughtfully grow. In particular, we believe that we currently have realizable capacity in our Global Opportunities and Global Equity strategies, where we believe we are well-positioned to take advantage of client and investor demand. The Global Opportunities strategy had $201 million and $352 million of net client cash inflows during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, while the Global Equity strategy’s net flows were slightly negative. If these strategies continue to perform well relative to their benchmarks and global strategies remain in demand, we expect that they will gather assets.

Across the firm, we experienced total net outflows of $2.3 billion and $3.7 billion during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. The strategies managed by our U.S. Value team experienced total net outflows of $1.8 billion and $3.0 billion during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, as a result of extended underperformance and our cessation of the U.S. Small-Cap Value strategy in the second quarter of 2016. During the second quarter, we ceased managing assets in the U.S. Small-Cap Value strategy and reorganized Artisan Small Cap Value Fund into Artisan Mid Cap Value Fund. This reorganization resulted in net outflows of approximately $518 million and the transfer of approximately $180 million of assets from Artisan Small Cap Value Fund to Artisan Mid Cap Value Fund. If client trends continue, we expect the team’s strategies will continue to experience net outflows.
For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the remainder of our net outflows were primarily the result of reduced gross inflows across several of our strategies, including our Non-U.S. Growth strategy and our U.S. Mid-Cap Growth strategy. Firm-wide gross inflows of $3.7 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2016, were $942 million and $1.4 billion less than for the three months ended March 31, 2016, and June 30, 2015, respectively. Our Non-U.S. Growth strategy had net outflows of $561 million and $1.2 billion, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. As previously announced, we closed the strategy to most new retail and intermediary investors in February 2016, and we will further close the strategy to most new institutional investors and employee benefit plans in October 2016. The U.S. Mid-Cap Growth strategy had net outflows of $607 million and $748 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.
Our High Income strategy, which we launched in March 2014, generated net inflows of $138 million and $472 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. We also continued to see strong interest in our Developing World strategy, which launched at the end of June 2015 and has generated a total of $680 million in net inflows since that time. Our Global Value strategy, which we re-opened to investors through our pooled vehicles in the fourth quarter of 2015, generated $288 million of net inflows during the six months ended June 30, 2016, after several quarters of net outflows while the strategy was closed to most new investors.
We monitor the availability of attractive investment opportunities relative to the amount of assets we manage in each of our investment strategies. When appropriate, we will close a strategy to new investors or otherwise take action to slow or restrict its growth, even though our aggregate AUM may be negatively impacted in the short term. We may also re-open a strategy, widely or selectively, to fill available capacity or manage the diversification of our client base in that strategy. We believe that management of our investment capacity protects our ability to manage assets successfully, which protects the interests of our clients and, in the long term, protects our ability to retain client assets and maintain our profit margins.
In addition to our Non-U.S. Growth and Global Value strategies which are partially closed as described above, as of the date of this filing, our Non-U.S. Small-Cap Growth, Non-U.S. Value, U.S. Mid-Cap Growth, U.S. Mid-Cap Value and U.S. Small-Cap Growth strategies are closed to most new investors and client relationships.
When we close a strategy, we typically continue to allow additional investments in the strategy by existing clients and certain related entities, which means that during a given period we could have net client cash inflows even in a closed strategy. For example, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, our Non-U.S. Value strategy, which is closed to most new investors and client relationships, had $214 million and $457 million in net client cash inflows. However, when a strategy is closed or its growth is restricted we expect there to be periods of net client cash outflows.
We measure investment performance based upon the results of our “composites”, which represent the aggregate performance of all discretionary client accounts, including mutual funds, invested in the same strategy except those accounts with respect to which we believe client-imposed investment restrictions may have a material impact on portfolio construction and those accounts managed in a currency other than U.S. dollars.
