U.S. GAAP Net Revenues were $102.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010, compared to U.S. GAAP Net Revenues of $110.0 million and $123.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009 and September 30, 2010, respectively. U.S. GAAP Net Revenues were $378.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, compared to U.S. GAAP Net Revenues of $314.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009. U.S. GAAP Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. was $3.3 million, or $0.13 per share for the three months ended December 31, 2010, compared to U.S. GAAP Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per share for the three months ended December 31, 2009 and $3.5 million, or $0.17 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2010.

The Adjusted Pro Forma compensation ratio for the three months ended December 31, 2010 was 62%, compared to 58% for the same period in 2009 and 62% for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The Adjusted Pro Forma full-year compensation ratio of 61% is improved from 64% in 2009 but up from 60% on a trailing twelve-month basis in Q3 2010. The U.S. GAAP compensation ratio for the three months ended December 31, 2010, December 31, 2009 and September 30, 2010 was 67%, 62% and 66%, respectively. The U.S. GAAP full-year 2010 compensation ratio of 66% is up from the Q3 2010 compensation ratio on a trailing twelve month basis of 65% and down from the full year 2009 of 67%. Evercore's quarterly results may fluctuate significantly due to the timing and amount of transaction fees earned, as well as other factors. Accordingly, financial results in any particular quarter may not be representative of future results over a longer period of time. “Evercore accomplished a number of important objectives in the fourth quarter as the early stage Investment Management businesses began to contribute positively to earnings, our Assets Under Management exceeded $17 billion driven by the ongoing growth of Atalanta Sosnoff, and the Institutional Equities business launched coverage of more than 100 companies and generated revenue from more than 75 clients. Our core Advisory business continued to demonstrate its strong position in the market, including representing General Motors in its landmark IPO,” said Ralph Schlosstein, President and Chief Executive Officer. “These accomplishments complemented a solid financial performance for the year, in which the company generated record revenues in both Investment Banking and Investment Management and in which we made substantial investments in the future success of the company.” “The overall recovery in U.S. and global transaction volume continued to accelerate in Q4 and is expected to continue in 2011. Evercore distinguished itself by advising on two of the three largest mergers in the market last year. We also advised on the two largest U.S. IPO's, including the GM offering, which was the largest in history,” said Roger Altman, Executive Chairman. “We also continue to add talented advisory partners, both laterally and internally, as we have consistently done for years. The Evercore brand, which is stronger than it has ever been, is very helpful in that regard.” Consolidated U.S. GAAP and Adjusted Pro Forma Selected Financial Data   U.S. GAAPThree Months Ended   % Change vs.   Twelve Months EndedDecember 31,2010   September 30,2010   December 31,2009September 30,2010   December 31,2009December 31,2010   December 31,2009   % Change (dollars in thousands) Net Revenues $ 102,188 $ 123,718 $ 110,002 (17 %) (7 %) $ 378,897 $ 314,545 20 % Operating Income $ 8,859 $ 17,696 $ 19,802 (50 %) (55 %) $ 34,242 $ 21,184 62 % Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. $ 3,287 $ 3,530 $ 1,649 (7 %) 99 % $ 8,954 $ (1,570 ) NM Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share $ 0.13 $ 0.17 $ 0.07 (24 %) 86 % $ 0.39 $ (0.10 ) NM Compensation Ratio 67 % 66 % 62 % 66 % 67 % Operating Margin 9 % 14 % 18 % 9 % 7 %   Adjusted Pro FormaThree Months Ended% Change vs.Twelve Months EndedDecember 31,2010September 30,2010December 31,2009September 30,2010December 31,2009December 31,2010December 31,2009% Change (dollars in thousands) Net Revenues $ 102,358 $ 123,706 $ 109,140 (17 %) (6 %) $ 375,936 $ 314,440 20 % Operating Income $ 16,399 $ 25,036 $ 30,448 (34 %) (46 %) $ 64,536 $ 59,806 8 % Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. $ 10,855 $ 14,648 $ 16,536 (26 %) (34 %) $ 37,894 $ 32,883 15 % Diluted Earnings Per Share $ 0.27 $ 0.38 $ 0.41 (29 %) (34 %) $ 0.94 $ 0.89 6 % Compensation Ratio 62 % 62 % 58 % 61 % 64 % Operating Margin 16 % 20 % 28 % 17 % 19 %   Throughout the discussion of Evercore's business segments, information is presented on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, which is a non-generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”) measure. Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore's results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore's operating results. Evercore uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.For more information about the Adjusted Pro Forma basis of reporting used by management to evaluate the performance of Evercore and each line of business, including reconciliations of U.S. GAAP results to an Adjusted Pro Forma basis, see pages A-2 through A-10 included in Annex I.These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company's two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. Business Line Reporting A discussion of Adjusted Pro Forma revenues and expenses is presented below for the Investment Banking and Investment Management segments. Unless otherwise stated, all of the financial measures presented in this discussion are Adjusted Pro Forma measures. For a reconciliation of the Adjusted Pro Forma segment data to U.S. GAAP results, see pages A-2 to A-10 in Annex I. Investment Banking Evercore's Investment Banking business reported revenues this quarter of $75.7 million, down 24% from both Q4 2009 and from last quarter's record. Operating Income of $13.9 million decreased 61% and 46% when compared to Q4 2009 and Q3 2010, respectively. The Operating Margin for the quarter was 18% reflecting lower Advisory results, and the full impact of investments in Institutional Equities and the Private Funds Group.   Adjusted Pro FormaThree Months Ended   Twelve Months EndedDecember 31,   September 30,   December 31,December 31,   December 31,20102010200920102009 (dollars in thousands) Net Revenues: Investment Banking $ 75,653 $ 99,563 $ 99,181 $ 292,001 $ 287,265 Other Revenue, net   460     435     326     4,085     2,065   Net Revenues   76,113     99,998     99,507     296,086     289,330     Expenses: Employee Compensation and Benefits 47,604 60,847 53,256 178,376 163,269 Non-compensation Costs   14,563     13,315     10,513     51,990     35,084   Total Expenses   62,167     74,162     63,769     230,366     198,353     Operating Income $ 13,946   $ 25,836   $ 35,738   $ 65,720   $ 90,977     Compensation Ratio 63 % 61 % 54 % 60 % 56 % Operating Margin 18 % 26 % 36 % 22 % 31 %   U.S. GAAPThree Months EndedTwelve Months EndedDecember 31,September 30,December 31,December 31,December 31,20102010200920102009 (dollars in thousands) Net Revenues: Investment Banking $ 77,137 $ 101,367 $ 100,880 $ 301,931 $ 293,311 Other Revenue, net   (590 )   (607 )   (709 )   (84 )   (677 ) Net Revenues   76,547     100,760     100,171     301,847     292,634     Expenses: Employee Compensation and Benefits 51,986 64,948 57,381 195,908 171,179 Non-compensation Costs 16,532 15,588 12,682 63,812 43,006 Special Charges   -     -     3,991     -     7,942   Total Expenses   68,518     80,536     74,054     259,720     222,127     Operating Income $ 8,029   $ 20,224   $ 26,117   $ 42,127   $ 70,507     Compensation Ratio 68 % 64 % 57 % 65 % 58 % Operating Margin 10 % 20 % 26 % 14 % 24 %   Revenues Investment Banking earned advisory fees in excess of $1 million from 20 clients during the fourth quarter of 2010, and completed one underwriting assignment. During the quarter we provided advice on major strategic transactions including General Motors IPO, the largest in history, EXCO's proposed management buyout, Qatar Holding's acquisition of a 9.1% stake in Hochtief AG, ITC^Deltacom's sale to Earthlink and Gedeon Richter's acquisition of PregLem S.A., among others. The number of fee-paying clients for 2010 increased to 191 compared to 162 in the prior year. Expenses Compensation costs for the Investment Banking segment on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis for the three months ended December 31, 2010 were $47.6 million, a decrease of 11% from the prior year and 22% from Q3 2010. For the three months ended December 31, 2010, Evercore's Investment Banking Adjusted Pro Forma compensation ratio was 63%, versus the compensation ratio reported for the three months ended December 31, 2009 of 54% and 61% for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The full-year Adjusted Pro Forma compensation ratio was 60%, consistent with the LTM compensation ratio in Q3 2010. The full-year U.S. GAAP compensation ratio was 65%, up from the LTM compensation ratio of 62% in Q3 2010. Non-compensation costs on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis for the three months ended December 31, 2010 of $14.6 million increased 39% from the same period last year and 9% in comparison to last quarter. The increase versus Q3 2010 was driven by costs related to search and recruiting fees, higher travel as activity levels increased and the impact of the fully-operational Institutional Equities business. Expenses included $0.7 million and $1.6 million related to the amortization of acquired intangible assets for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010. New Business The Institutional Equities business is now composed of 43 professionals including 13 publishing research analysts and 10 sales and sales trading professionals. The Research team now covers 109 companies across Technology, Media and Telecommunications and Financial Institutions and has opened accounts with 110 clients. For the three months ended December 31, 2010 the business generated $2.3 million in revenues, an increase of 245% in comparison to the prior quarter. Expenses were $8.6 million for the quarter. While the business reduced Adjusted Pro Forma Earnings Per Share by approximately $0.10 per share for the full year, its impact on earnings was lower in the fourth quarter than in the third quarter. Investment Management The Investment Management segment reported Operating Income of $2.5 million in the fourth quarter reflecting positive contributions from our early-stage businesses and the continued success of the two acquisitions closed earlier this year. Assets Under Management (AUM) increased to $17.4 billion on approximately $1.0 billion of market appreciation offset by net outflows of approximately $230 million, including approximately $250 million of net outflows in cash management products in Mexico. The segment reported a full-year operating loss of $1.2 million, a significant improvement from the $31.2 million operating loss in 2009.   Adjusted Pro FormaThree Months Ended   Twelve Months EndedDecember 31,   September 30,   December 31,December 31,   December 31,20102010200920102009 Net Revenues: (dollars in thousands) Investment Management Revenues $ 26,096 $ 23,412 $ 9,104 $ 76,854 $ 21,615 Other Revenue, net   149     296     529     2,996     3,495   Net Revenues   26,245     23,708     9,633     79,850     25,110     Expenses: Employee Compensation and Benefits 15,429 16,456 9,756 52,720 38,149 Non-compensation Costs   8,363     8,052     5,167     28,314     18,132   Total Expenses   23,792     24,508     14,923     81,034     56,281     Operating Income (Loss) $ 2,453   $ (800 ) $ (5,290 ) $ (1,184 ) $ (31,171 )   Compensation Ratio 59 % 69 % 101 % 66 % 152 % Operating Margin 9 % (3 %) (55 %) (1 %) (124 %)   U.S. GAAPThree Months EndedTwelve Months EndedDecember 31,September 30,December 31,December 31,December 31,20102010200920102009 Net Revenues: (dollars in thousands) Investment Management Revenues $ 26,380 $ 23,543 $ 10,177 $ 77,579 $ 23,269 Other Revenue, net   (739 )   (585 )   (346 )   (529 )   (1,358 ) Net Revenues   25,641     22,958     9,831     77,050     21,911     Expenses: Employee Compensation and Benefits 16,181 17,319 10,620 56,009 39,639 Non-compensation Costs 8,630 8,167 5,526 28,926 19,408 Special Charges   -     -     -     -     12,187   Total Expenses   24,811     25,486     16,146     84,935     71,234     Operating Income (Loss) $ 830   $ (2,528 ) $ (6,315 ) $ (7,885 ) $ (49,323 )   Compensation Ratio 63 % 75 % 108 % 73 % 181 % Operating Margin 3 % (11 %) (64 %) (10 %) (225 %)   RevenuesInvestment Management Revenue Components   Adjusted Pro FormaThree Months Ended   Twelve Months EndedDecember 31,   September 30,   December 31,December 31,   December 31,20102010200920102009Management Fees (dollars in thousands) Wealth Management $ 2,894 $ 2,573 $ 1,682 $ 9,826 $ 3,903 Institutional Asset Management (1) 18,038 17,035 4,464 51,511 14,631 Private Equity   1,915     2,301     3,088     8,396     10,207   Total Management Fees   22,847     21,909     9,234     69,733     28,741     Realized and Unrealized Gains (Losses) Institutional Asset Management 1,670 1,092 770 5,546 713 Private Equity   1,711     542     (72 )   2,148     (5,179 ) Total Realized and Unrealized Gains (Losses)   3,381     1,634     698     7,694     (4,466 )   HighView - - - - (920 ) Equity in EAM Gains (Losses) - - - - (334 ) Equity in Affiliate Managers (2)   (132 )   (131 )   (828 )   (573 )   (1,406 ) Investment Management Revenues $ 26,096   $ 23,412   $ 9,104   $ 76,854   $ 21,615     (1)   Management fees from Institutional Asset Management were $18.2 million and $51.7 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010, and $4.7 million and $14.9 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009 on a U.S. GAAP basis, excluding the reduction of revenues for reimbursable client-related expenses. (2) Equity in Pan and G5 on a U.S. GAAP basis are reclassified from Investment Management Revenue to Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments.   Fees earned from the management of client portfolios and other investment advisory services of $22.8 million increased significantly for the three months ended December 31, 2010 compared to the fourth quarter of 2009, reflecting Atalanta Sosnoff, the inclusion of fees associated with Trilantic and continued growth in AUM within Wealth Management and the other Institutional Asset Management businesses. Fees earned in the fourth quarter increased by 4% in comparison to the fees earned in the third quarter of 2010. Expenses The reported growth in expenses in the fourth quarter of 2010 relative to the same period last year was primarily attributable to Atalanta Sosnoff. Non-compensation costs increased slightly from last quarter. Non-compensation costs included $1.6 million and $3.7 million related to the amortization of acquired intangible assets for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010. Other U.S. GAAP Expenses Evercore's Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010 was higher than U.S. GAAP as a result of the exclusion of expenses associated with IPO equity awards and the amortization of intangibles, principally related to Braveheart and Protego. In addition, for Adjusted Pro Forma purposes, reimbursable client-related expenses and expenses associated with revenue-sharing engagements with third parties have been presented as a reduction from Revenues and Non-compensation costs. Further details of these expenses, as well as an explanation of similar expenses for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009, are included in Annex I, pages A-2 to A-10. Noncontrolling Interests Noncontrolling Interests in certain subsidiaries are owned by the principals and strategic investors in these businesses. Evercore's equity ownership percentages in these businesses range from 51% to 86%. For the periods ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 and September 30, 2010 the gain (loss) allocated to noncontrolling interests was as follows:   Net Gain (Loss) Allocated to Noncontrolling InterestsThree Months Ended   Twelve Months EndedDecember 31,   September 30,   December 31,December 31,   December 31,20102010200920102009Segment (dollars in thousands) Investment Banking (1) $ (2,752 ) $ (1,282 ) $ - $ (4,678 ) $ - Investment Management (1)   285     39     (621 )   (247 )   (3,252 ) Total $ (2,467 ) $ (1,243 ) $ (621 ) $ (4,925 ) $ (3,252 )   (1)   The difference between Adjusted Pro Forma and U.S. GAAP Noncontrolling Interests relates primarily to intangible amortization expense which is eliminated for ETC and EAM.   Income Taxes For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010, Evercore's Adjusted Pro Forma effective tax rate was approximately 42%. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010, Evercore's U.S. GAAP effective tax rate was approximately 50% and 47%, respectively, compared to 66% and 99% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009. The effective tax rate for U.S. GAAP purposes reflects significant adjustments relating to the tax treatment of certain compensation transactions, as well as the noncontrolling interest associated with Evercore LP Units. Balance Sheet The Company continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, holding cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $234.4 million at December 31, 2010. Current assets exceed current liabilities by $189.4 million at December 31, 2010. Amounts due related to the Long-Term Notes Payable were $98.1 million at December 31, 2010. During the quarter the Company repurchased approximately 17,500 shares and share equivalents at an average cost of $30.35 per share. Dividend On January 31, 2011 the Board of Directors of Evercore declared a quarterly dividend of $0.18 per share to be paid on March 11, 2011 to common stockholders of record on February 25, 2011.

Adjusted Pro Forma results begin with information prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), adjusted to exclude certain items and reflect the conversion of vested and unvested Evercore LP Units, and other event-based awards, into Class A shares. Evercore believes that the disclosed Adjusted Pro Forma measures and any adjustments thereto, when presented in conjunction with comparable U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to compare Evercore's results across several periods and facilitate an understanding of Evercore's operating results. The Company uses these measures to evaluate its operating performance, as well as the performance of individual employees. These measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These Adjusted Pro Forma amounts are allocated to the Company's two business segments: Investment Banking and Investment Management. The differences between Adjusted Pro Forma and U.S. GAAP results are as follows: 1.   Assumed Vesting of Evercore LP Units and Exchange into Class A Shares. The Company incurred expenses in Employee Compensation and Benefits, resulting from the modification of Evercore LP Units, which will vest over a five-year period. The Adjusted Pro Forma results assume these LP Units have vested and have been exchanged for Class A shares. Accordingly, any expense associated with these units is excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results and the noncontrolling interest related to these units is converted to controlling interest. The Company's Management believes that it is useful to provide the per-share effect associated with the assumed conversion of these previously granted but unvested equity, and thus the Adjusted Pro Forma results reflect the vesting of all unvested Evercore LP partnership units and event-based stock-based awards. 2. Expenses Associated with Business Combinations. The following expenses resulting from business combinations have been excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results because the Company's Management believes that operating performance is more comparable across periods excluding the effects of these acquisition-related charges;   a.  Acquisition and Transition Costs. The Company has reflected Acquisition and Transition Costs for expenses incurred during the first quarter of 2009 in connection with the acquisition of SFS and the formation of ETC. This charge reflects the change in accounting for deal-related costs required by SFAS No. 141(R), Business Combinations, codified under ASC 805, which was effective January 1, 2009.   b.  Amortization of Intangible Assets. Amortization of intangible assets related to the Protego acquisition was undertaken in contemplation of the IPO. The Braveheart acquisition occurred on December 19, 2006. Also excluded is amortization of intangible assets associated with the acquisitions of SFS and EAM. 3. Special Charges. The Company has reflected charges in conjunction with its decision to suspend capital raising for ECP and other ongoing strategic cost management initiatives, which it has excluded from Adjusted Pro Forma results. These charges relate to the expense required to be recorded under U.S. GAAP for stock-based compensation awards that are voluntarily forfeited by employees who remain with the Company. During 2009 employees voluntarily forfeited 738,000 unvested restricted stock units and 250,000 partnership units. The Company's Management believes that excluding the effects of these Special Charges improves the comparability of operating performance across periods. 4. Client Expenses. The Company has reflected the reclassification of reimbursable expenses and expenses associated with revenue sharing engagements with third parties as a reduction of revenue. The Company's Management believes that this adjustment results in more meaningful key operating ratios, such as compensation to net revenues and operating margin. 5. Income Taxes. Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, a C-Corporation and a Public Corporation and therefore, not all of the Company's income is subject to corporate-level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to the Adjusted Pro Forma earnings to assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C Corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates, that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis and that adjustments for deferred tax assets related to the ultimate tax deductions for equity-based compensation awards are made directly to stockholders' equity. This assumption is consistent with the assumption that all Evercore LP Units are vested and exchanged into Class A shares, as discussed in Item 1 above, as the assumed exchange would change the tax structure of the Company. 6. Presentation of Interest Expense. The Adjusted Pro Forma results present interest expense on short-term repurchase agreements, within the Investment Management segment, in Other Revenues, net, as the Company's Management believes it is more meaningful to present the spread on net interest resulting from the matched financial assets and liabilities. In addition, Adjusted Pro Forma Advisory and Investment Management Operating Income is presented before interest expense on long-term debt, which is included in interest expense on a U.S. GAAP basis. 7. Presentation of Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments. The Adjusted Pro Forma results present Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments within Revenue as the Company's Management believes it is a more meaningful presentation.   EVERCORE PARTNERS INC.U.S. GAAP RECONCILIATION TO ADJUSTED PRO FORMA (dollars in thousands) (UNAUDITED)           Three Months EndedTwelve Months EndedDecember 31,September 30,December 31,December 31,December 31,20102010200920102009Net Revenues - U.S. GAAP $ 102,188 $ 123,718 $ 110,002 $ 378,897 $ 314,545 Reimbursable Expenses (1) (1,652) (1,804) (1,944) (10,098) (6,294) Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments (2) (116) (131) (828) (557) (1,406) Interest Expense on Long-term Debt (3) 1,938 1,923 1,910 7,694 7,595 Net Revenues - Adjusted Pro Forma $ 102,358 $ 123,706 $ 109,140 $ 375,936 $ 314,440   Compensation Expense - U.S. GAAP $ 68,167 $ 82,267 $ 68,001 $ 251,917 $ 210,818 Amortization of LP Units and Certain Other Awards (4) (5,134) (4,964) (4,989) (20,821) (9,400) Compensation Expense - Adjusted Pro Forma $ 63,033 $ 77,303 $ 63,012 $ 231,096 $ 201,418   Operating Income - U.S. GAAP $ 8,859 $ 17,696 $ 19,802 $ 34,242 $ 21,184 Income (Loss) from Equity Method Investments (2) (116) (131) (828) (557) (1,406) Pre-Tax Income - U.S. GAAP 8,743 17,565 18,974 33,685 19,778 Amortization of LP Units and Certain Other Awards (4) 5,134 4,964 4,989 20,821 9,400 Special Charges (5) - - 3,991 - 20,129 Acquisition and Transition Costs (6) - - - - 712 Intangible Asset Amortization (6) 584 584 584 2,336 2,192 Pre-Tax Income - Adjusted Pro Forma 14,461 23,113 28,538 56,842 52,211 Interest Expense on Long-term Debt (3) 1,938 1,923 1,910 7,694 7,595 Operating Income - Adjusted Pro Forma $ 16,399 $ 25,036 $ 30,448 $ 64,536 $ 59,806   Provision for Income Taxes - U.S. GAAP $ 4,372 $ 8,547 $ 12,499 $ 15,880 $ 19,532 Income Taxes (7) 1,701 1,161 124 7,993 3,048 Provision for Income Taxes - Adjusted Pro Forma $ 6,073 $ 9,708 $ 12,623 $ 23,873 $ 22,580   Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. - U.S. GAAP $ 3,287 $ 3,530 $ 1,649 $ 8,954 $ (1,570) Amortization of LP Units and Certain Other Awards (4) 5,134 4,964 4,989 20,821 9,400 Special Charges (5) - - 3,991 - 20,129 Acquisition and Transition Costs (6) - - - - 712 Intangible Asset Amortization (6) 584 584 584 2,336 2,192 Income Taxes (7) (1,701) (1,161) (124) (7,993) (3,048) Noncontrolling Interest (8) 3,551 6,731 5,447 13,776 5,068 Net Income Attributable to Evercore Partners Inc. - Adjusted Pro Forma $ 10,855 $ 14,648 $ 16,536 $ 37,894 $ 32,883   Diluted Shares Outstanding - U.S. GAAP 25,353 21,091 22,295 22,968 15,545 Vested Partnership Units (9) 9,795 12,473 12,396 11,914 14,172 Unvested Partnership Units (9) 4,540 4,540 4,603 4,540 4,603 Unvested Restricted Stock Units - Event Based (9) 633 639 728 633 728 Unvested Restricted Stock Units - Service Based (9) - - - - 1,798 Unvested Restricted Stock - Service Based (9) - - - - 80 Diluted Shares Outstanding - Adjusted Pro Forma 40,321 38,743 40,022 40,055 36,926   Key Metrics: (a) Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share - U.S. GAAP (b) $ 0.13 $ 0.17 $ 0.07 $ 0.39 $ (0.10) Diluted Earnings Per Share - Adjusted Pro Forma (b) $ 0.27 $ 0.38 $ 0.41 $ 0.94 $ 0.89   Compensation Ratio - U.S. GAAP 67% 66% 62% 66% 67% Compensation Ratio - Adjusted Pro Forma 62% 62% 58% 61% 64%   Operating Margin - U.S. GAAP 9% 14% 18% 9% 7% Operating Margin - Adjusted Pro Forma 16% 20% 28% 17% 19%   Effective Tax Rate - U.S. GAAP 50% 49% 66% 47% 99% Effective Tax Rate - Adjusted Pro Forma 42% 42% 44% 42% 43%   (a)   Reconciliations of the key metrics from U.S. GAAP to Adjusted Pro Forma are a derivative of the reconciliations of their components above.

The charges relate to the expense required to be recorded under U.S. GAAP for stock-based compensation awards that are voluntarily forfeited by employees who remain with the Company. During 2009 employees voluntarily forfeited 738,000 unvested restricted stock units and 250,000 Evercore LP partnership units.   (6) Non-compensation Costs on an Adjusted Pro Forma basis reflect the following adjustments     Three Months Ended December 31, 2010Investment   Investment   Total   BankingManagementSegmentsAdjustmentsU.S. GAAP Occupancy and Equipment Rental $ 3,705 $ 1,537 $ 5,242 $ - $ 5,242 Professional Fees 4,546 2,443 6,989 (1) 824 7,813 Travel and Related Expenses 3,541 590 4,131 (1) 672 4,803 Communications and Information Services 1,228 559 1,787 (1) 41 1,828 Depreciation and Amortization 1,094 1,722 2,816 (6a) 584 3,400 Acquisition and Transition Costs 273 5 278 - 278 Other Operating Expenses   176   1,507   1,683 (1)   115   1,798 Total Non-compensation Costs $ 14,563 $ 8,363 $ 22,926 $ 2,236 $ 25,162   Three Months Ended September 30, 2010InvestmentInvestmentTotalBankingManagementSegmentsAdjustmentsU.S. GAAP Occupancy and Equipment Rental $ 3,494 $ 1,635 $ 5,129 $ - $ 5,129 Professional Fees 3,215 2,140 5,355 (1) 580 5,935 Travel and Related Expenses 2,806 525 3,331 (1) 1,110 4,441 Communications and Information Services 1,010 409 1,419 (1) 36 1,455 Depreciation and Amortization 1,105 1,690 2,795 (6a) 584 3,379 Acquisition and Transition Costs 284 101 385 - 385 Other Operating Expenses   1,401   1,552   2,953 (1)   78   3,031 Total Non-compensation Costs $ 13,315 $ 8,052 $ 21,367 $ 2,388 $ 23,755   Three Months December 31, 2009InvestmentInvestmentTotalBankingManagementSegmentsAdjustmentsU.S. GAAP Occupancy and Equipment Rental $ 2,473 $ 1,371 $ 3,844 $ - $ 3,844 Professional Fees 2,951 2,072 5,023 (1) 1,296 6,319 Travel and Related Expenses 2,381 270 2,651 (1) 552 3,203 Communications and Information Services 807 356 1,163 (1) 48 1,211 Depreciation and Amortization 381 199 580 (6a) 584 1,164 Acquisition and Transition Costs - - - - - Other Operating Expenses   1,520   899   2,419 (1)   48   2,467 Total Non-compensation Costs $ 10,513 $ 5,167 $ 15,680 $ 2,528 $ 18,208   Twelve Months December 31, 2010InvestmentInvestmentTotalBankingManagementSegmentsAdjustmentsU.S. GAAP Occupancy and Equipment Rental $ 12,832 $ 5,497 $ 18,329 $ - $ 18,329 Professional Fees 14,174 8,290 22,464 (1) 6,000 28,464 Travel and Related Expenses 11,191 1,742 12,933 (1) 3,660 16,593 Communications and Information Services 4,177 1,770 5,947 (1) 127 6,074 Depreciation and Amortization 3,414 4,327 7,741 (6a) 2,336 10,077 Acquisition and Transition Costs 1,456 1,943 3,399 - 3,399 Other Operating Expenses   4,746   4,745   9,491 (1)   311   9,802 Total Non-compensation Costs $ 51,990 $ 28,314 $ 80,304 $ 12,434 $ 92,738   Twelve Months December 31, 2009InvestmentInvestmentTotalBankingManagementSegmentsAdjustmentsU.S. GAAP Occupancy and Equipment Rental $ 8,856 $ 5,060 $ 13,916 $ - $ 13,916 Professional Fees 10,723 6,954 17,677 (1) 3,253 20,930 Travel and Related Expenses 6,102 970 7,072 (1) 2,631 9,703 Communications and Information Services 2,685 1,133 3,818 (1) 108 3,926 Depreciation and Amortization 1,508 817 2,325 (6a) 2,192 4,517 Acquisition and Transition Costs - - - (6b) 712 712 Other Operating Expenses   5,210   3,198   8,408 (1)   302   8,710 Total Non-compensation Costs $ 35,084 $ 18,132 $ 53,216 $ 9,198 $ 62,414   (6a)   Reflects expenses associated with amortization of intangible assets acquired in the Protego, Braveheart, SFS and EAM acquisitions.   (6b) The Company has reflected Acquisition and Transition Costs for costs incurred during the first quarter of 2009 in connection with the acquisition of SFS and the formation of ETC. This charge reflects the change in accounting for deal-related costs required by SFAS No. 141(R), Business Combinations, codified under ASC 805, which was effective January 1, 2009.   (7) Evercore is organized as a series of Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships, a C-Corporation and a Public Corporation and therefore, not all of the Company's income is subject to corporate level taxes. As a result, adjustments have been made to increase Evercore's effective tax rate to approximately 42% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010. These adjustments assume that the Company has adopted a conventional corporate tax structure and is taxed as a C Corporation in the U.S. at the prevailing corporate rates, that all deferred tax assets relating to foreign operations are fully realizable within the structure on a consolidated basis and that, historically, adjustments for deferred tax assets related to the ultimate tax deductions for equity-based compensation awards are made directly to stockholders' equity.   (8) Reflects adjustment to eliminate noncontrolling interest related to all Evercore LP partnership units which are assumed to be converted to Class A common stock.   (9) Assumes the vesting of all Evercore LP partnership units and restricted stock unit event-based awards and reflects on a weighted average basis, the dilution of unvested service-based awards. In the computation of outstanding common stock equivalents for U.S. GAAP net income per share, the unvested Evercore LP partnership units are anti-dilutive and the event-based restricted stock units are excluded from the calculation.
