Hennessy Advisors, Inc. Reports First Quarter Earnings Increase of 333% and Announces Quarterly Dividend

NOVATO, Calif., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hennessy Advisors, Inc. (OTCBB: HNNA) today reported fully diluted earnings per share of $0.13 for the first quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 333% over the previous period ended December 31, 2011.  Total assets under management increased 287% to over $3 billion, and average assets increased by 216%, producing a corresponding increase in revenue, net income and earnings per share versus the prior comparable period.  

The Board of Directors of Hennessy Advisors, Inc. today also declared a quarterly dividend of $0.03125 per share to be paid on February 25, 2013 to shareholders of record as of February 1, 2013.  Based on the Hennessy Advisors, Inc. stock price at the close of business on January 17, 2013 of $5.44 per share, this dividend, when annualized, represents a 2.3% yield.

"Financial performance for the first quarter was clearly impacted by the purchase of the assets related to the management contracts of the FBR Funds, which took place on October 26, 2012.  We are excited to now manage over $3 billion in assets and offer shareholders a broader and more diversified lineup of mutual fund products," said Neil Hennessy, President, Chairman and CEO of Hennessy Advisors, Inc. "We remain committed to our long-range business model and to our core value that our shareholders always come first. We will continue to focus on growing our mutual fund assets through marketing and sales, and to diligently search for strategic asset purchases," Hennessy noted.

"Corporate America is strong, as evidenced by the positive returns in the financial markets in 2012, and I believe that investors may finally be recognizing the strong fundamentals present in today's equity market. I am optimistic that as investors return to mutual funds, this will translate into continued profitability for our shareholders and our firm," added Mr. Hennessy.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
